The Federation of Mimes Guild is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 23.504 billion Mimes Guildians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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.

Hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Mimes Guild's many privately-owned prisons, the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. 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 105th in Texas and 69,454th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -29 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
