The Federation of Mimes Guild is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 23.321 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.

Students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. 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 142nd in Texas and 111,717th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -23 on the Hayek Index.
