The Recursiveness of Aibohphobia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dark Inquisitor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.324 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, Environment, and Administration. 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 a remarkable 9,240 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 504,289 nulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, artists are pillars of society, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". 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 198,101st in the world and 18th in Glass Gallows for Most Pro-Market, scoring -94.44 on the Rand Index.
