Government National Mortgage Association

Also known as Ginnie Mae, the association buys home mortgages and packages them into mortgage securities that are then resold to investors. The resulting securities are fully taxable, but they are backed by the government and so default is virtually impossible. These mortgage-backed bonds are also highly liquid and pay more interest than Treasury securities.
