The Borderlands of Abiswashyo-bhumi is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Weasel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.042 billion Abiswashyo-bhumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ayanopolis. The average income tax rate is 1.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Abiswashyo-bhumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,685 trillion anti-neutrinos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 297,014 anti-neutrinos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Abiswashyo-bhumi's national animal is the Hippogriff, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Abiswashyo-bhumi is ranked 7,670th in the world and 391st in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 35.36 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
