The Recursiveness of Aibohphobia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dark Inquisitor with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.296 billion Aibohphobians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Infinite Loop. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aibohphobian economy, worth an astonishing 10,696 trillion nulls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 527,039 nulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, centuries-old marble buildings are being torn down and replaced with corrugated steel wind tunnels, and babysitters are a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aibohphobia's national animal is the möbius cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Aibohphobia is ranked 226,477th in the world and 10th in Glass Gallows for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -38.56 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
