OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federation of Mimes Guild is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its ban on automobiles. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 22.57 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 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.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government. 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 27th in Texas and 8,645th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 5 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
