The Democratic States of House 5 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.208 billion House 5ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 42.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong House 5ian economy, worth 250 trillion Fish a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,490 Fish, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, the entire entry for House 5 in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', business is adjusting to new gender equality policies in the workplace, and on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. House 5's national animal is the Poisson, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

House 5 is ranked 204,142nd in the world and 15th in New Coalition of Nations for Most Beautiful Environments, with 314.33 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
