Potion Seller

CapitalThe Potion Shop
LeaderThe Potion Seller


The Absolute Units of Potion Seller is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Potion Seller with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.154 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 Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Potion Shop. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient proud knight economy, worth 262 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 Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 121,748 Memes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Homophobia is off the menu, statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, and evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction. 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 18,167th in the world and 620th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 78.41 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
