Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of HereIsPotato is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chief Potato with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.692 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 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The HereIsPotatoan economy, worth 186 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 69,244 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares. 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 162,534th in the world and 8,765th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -15.56 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
