The United States of House mouse is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.901 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 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.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout House mouse after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, international tensions are high as House mouse threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets. 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 3,450th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 40 on the Enoch Index.
