The People of Jolly Potatio Land is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The evil potatio munchkin with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 2.218 billion Jolly Potatio Landians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Colcannon. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Jolly Potatio Landian economy, worth 242 trillion patatas dineros a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 109,492 patatas dineros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Write-in candidate 'The evil potatio munchkin Sucks' is perennially popular, graffiti graces every city's streets, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, and agreeing to appear on TV is often the best way to access social care. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jolly Potatio Land's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of the evil potatio munchkin.

Jolly Potatio Land is ranked 12,004th in the world and 2nd in The Bacon Grasslands for Most Developed, scoring 89.06 on the Human Development Index.
