The Region of Rodentia: Isle of Mouse Becomes Second-Largest City in Rodentia, Prompting Visit From Mayor Michael Nutter of Squirrelton

With the aid of her rather apathetic ally Chief Mole Vole of Vole Atoll, Nancy Pelosi-Groundsquirrel’s city the Isle of Mouse has become a center of trade and commerce in southern Rodentia. The unemployment rate is down (including those who have dropped out of the workforce) and both the public and private sectors report productivity is up (although this may be because of the new and wildly popular “Bring-Your-Rodent-To-Work Day” program held on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays). At 6,128 residents, Isle of Mouse has become second only to Squirrelton in population. Out of obligation, curiosity, and a vague sense of feeling threatened, Mayor Michael Nutter of Squirrelton traveled to Isle of Mouse to offer a resentment-tinged congrats to his fellow mayor Nancy-Pelosi-Goundsquirrel this week.

As pictured in the Isle of Mouse Tribune, mayors Michael Nutter of Squirrelton (who seems to be breaking the forth wall) and Nancy Pelosi-Groundsquirrel of Isle of Mouse discuss the governing of Rodentia. Although the Rodentian leaders may look an awful lot like the current mayor of Philadelphia, PA and House Minority Leader of the 112th US Congress, Isle of Mouse’s Center for Paranormal and Normal Rodent Studies assures us that the two who exist in the United States are actually doppelgangers of their Rodentian counterparts.

While the mayors were on a boat tour of the city, there was a graphics glitch on one of the passenger ferries but Mayor Nutter tactfully chose to not mention it.

Pictured below are the three most profitable stores in all of Rodentia.

The islet of Isle of Mouse is home to an exclusive yacht club. “This is where my yacht The Minnie is docked,” Nancy Pelosi-Goundsquirrel noted to Mayor Nutter. “Say, where’s yours?” Michael Nutter mumbled an unintelligible reply and quickly changed the subject to the status of municipal bonds.

Seeking to make up for her previous disregard for sports, Nancy Pelosi-Groundsquirrel was quick to show Michael Nutter the new football field, home to the Isle of Mouse’s High School’s football team The Mighty Fleabags. Pleased, Mayor Nutter predicted many good match ups between The Mighty Fleabags and Squirrelton High’s Fighting Squirrels.

As evening drew near, Mayor Nutter stopped into a tattoo parlor along the boardwalk and impulsively got an “I Heart Rodentia” tattoo on his left forearm.

Much to Mayor Nutter’s delight, the aviary (pictured below left) hosts an impressively-sized flying squirrel colony.

Mayors Pelosi-Groundsquirrel and Nutter were going end the visit by taking a night tour of Isle of Mouse via helicopter. At the last second, Pelosi-Goundsquirrel flaked, citing an unset stomach and slight fever. Disappointed, Mayor Nutter spent the evening eating microwave popcorn in his hotel room and watching The Secret of Nimh.

stunning nature, great work

@Schulmanator: Haha, thanks. Yes, Rodentia has yet to come up with any feline-type cat repellant ;)

@NMUSpidey: Thanks—Hahaha, yeah—Chief Mole Vole and Nancy Pelosi-Goundsquirrel did not hit it off particularly well, kind of like Obama and Netanyahu ;)

nice!

@Jetty Jockey: Thanks! Will try ;)

@SimCoug: thanks, it’s fun to try to think of the most ridiculous ideas I can think of and incorporate it into my interest in playing SimCity ;) Yeah, I’ve been really into the tropical plants MMP by nbvc, as I can place them in shallow water too.

Heh, it is always a pleasure seeing what your rodents are getting up to. Are any of them friends with Moose? Or am I simply showing my age a bit with that now-obscure reference?

"[font="georgia, serif"][color="#3d3a37"][size=3]three most profitable stores in all of Rodentia" I laughed out loud on that one. Great writing once again - I'm looking forward to the fleabag/fighting squirrel match-up. [/size][/color][/font]
