The Federation of Mimes Guild is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 22.547 billion are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 99%. 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.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mimes Guild's national animal is the opossum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Octopus card.

Mimes Guild is ranked 158th in Texas and 115,511th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
