OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federation of Mimes Guild is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 23.663 billion Mimes Guildians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 100%. 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.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and all footpaths have tollbooths. 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 30th in Texas and 6,799th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 5 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
