The Recursiveness of Aibohphobia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dark Inquisitor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.373 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 9,129 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 an amazing 496,886 nulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Aibohphobian military, some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, Aibohphobia's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, and high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD. 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 232nd in the world and 1st in Glass Gallows for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 16,875.29 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
