The Absolute Units of Potion Seller is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Potion Seller with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.545 billion Potion Sellers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Potion Shop. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient proud knight economy, worth 426 trillion Memes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 120,234 Memes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Proud knight novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about The Potion Seller, the government spends millions of Memes every year prosecuting spammers, all the world's a stage for proud knight political theatrics, and builders across Potion Seller are blocked up with orders for new public loos. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potion Seller's national animal is the Chongus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Potionology.

Potion Seller is ranked 14,963rd in the world and 444th in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 10.82 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
