The Recursiveness of Aibohphobia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dark Inquisitor with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.581 billion Aibohphobians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Infinite Loop. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aibohphobian economy, worth a remarkable 9,371 trillion nulls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 504,365 nulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, people who make the leader's blood boil get boiled, and citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aibohphobia's national animal is the möbius cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Aibohphobia is ranked 80,715th in the world and 9th in Glass Gallows for Rudest Citizens, with 54.07 Insults Per Minute.
