The Borderlands of Abiswashyo-bhumi is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Weasel with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.571 billion Abiswashyo-bhumians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Abiswashyo-bhumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,537 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 296,077 anti-neutrinos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, and people are bored of easy crossword puzzles. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Abiswashyo-bhumi's national animal is the Hippogriff, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Abiswashyo-bhumi is ranked 1,818th in the world and 105th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.76 on the Human Development Index.
