The United States of House mouse is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.077 billion House mouseans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt 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 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, criminals are thrown to the Mice to repay their debt to society, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and all streets are privately owned toll roads. 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 1st in Outer Heaven and 1,759th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,410.25 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
