Potion Seller

The Absolute Units of Potion Seller is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Potion Seller with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.776 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 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 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient proud knight economy, worth 453 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 Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 120,089 Memes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government spends millions of Memes every year prosecuting spammers, all the world's a stage for proud knight political theatrics, builders across Potion Seller are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms. 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 191,830th in the world and 7,316th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -86.33 on the Rand Index.
