The Absolute Units of Potion Seller is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Potion Seller with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.418 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 Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Potion Shop. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient proud knight economy, worth 161 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 113,636 Memes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, and there's some really clean windows in proud knight houses. 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 151,740th in the world and 6,318th in the South Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -344.84 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
