The Bloodthirsty Spuds of Potato is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.817 billion Potatoes enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 40.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient a Potato economy, worth 163 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Soda Sales, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,843 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, nothing gets the party jumping like Leader specifying how high, graffiti graces every city's streets, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potato's national animal is the man, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Potato is ranked 85,463rd in the world and 3,297th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,375.21 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
