The Ever Regressing Backwater of Prosophobia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Mysterious Unknown with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, avowedly heterosexual populace, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.315 billion Prosophobes are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — is solely concerned with Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 35.1%.

The sizeable but stagnant Prosophobian economy, worth 50.3 trillion Meals a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 3,775 Meals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up, citizens are told that foreigners are hungry ghosts who eat the flesh of the overly curious, and the term "Native Prosophobe" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Prosophobia's national animal is the Flea, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Darkness.

Prosophobia is ranked 240,117th in the world and 55th in Nudist Dreamland for Most Developed, scoring 7.07 on the Human Development Index.
