The United States of House mouse is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.789 billion House mouseans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of House mouse City. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, House mouse's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. House mouse's national animal is the Mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the mouse money.

House mouse is ranked 6th in Outer Heaven and 117,134th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -28 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
