The Absolute Units of Potion Seller is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Potion Seller with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.93 billion Potion Sellers, 2.924 billion of whom are zombies, 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Potion Shop. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient proud knight economy, worth 519 trillion Memes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 116,947 Memes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. 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 210,876th in the world and 8,161st in the South Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.52 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
