The United States of House mouse is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.303 billion House mouseans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 95%. 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.

Criminals are executed and their property seized, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", elections have been outlawed, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. 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 3rd in Outer Heaven and 17,521st in the world for Best Weather, with 53 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
