The Absolute Units of Potion Seller is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Potion Seller with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.176 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 enormous, liberal, 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 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient proud knight economy, worth 597 trillion Memes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,368 Memes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and The Potion Seller's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success. 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 14,957th in the world and 445th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,664.58 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
