The United States of House mouse is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.133 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.

Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, the nation's secret service is so secret that nobody knows if it has one, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. 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 663rd in the world for Safest, scoring 1,391 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
