The Free Land of HereIsPotato is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chief Potato with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.619 billion HereIsPotatoans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Patatia. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.
The HereIsPotatoan economy, worth 291 trillion Potatoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 80,436 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', the children of HereIsPotato are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and the World Free Land Games have been won again by HereIsPotato as no other country cares enough to compete. Crime is totally unknown. HereIsPotato's national animal is the House cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
