The Free Land of HereIsPotato is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chief Potato with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.981 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 94.9%.

The HereIsPotatoan economy, worth 330 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 82,906 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The children of HereIsPotato are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, the World Free Land Games have been won again by HereIsPotato as no other country cares enough to compete, students cut up leftover Potatoes during Arts and Crafts, and the number of judges has tripled in recent months. Crime is totally unknown. HereIsPotato's national animal is the House cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

HereIsPotato is ranked 182,469th in the world and 10,057th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -9.49 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
