LeaderThe Weasel


The Borderlands of Abiswashyo-bhumi is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Weasel with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.322 billion Abiswashyo-bhumians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ayanopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Abiswashyo-bhumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,461 trillion anti-neutrinos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 295,733 anti-neutrinos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Abiswashyo-bhumi's national animal is the Hippogriff, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Abiswashyo-bhumi is ranked 227,579th in the world and 12,968th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
