The 🍠🍠🍠 of Potato is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 7.187 billion Potatoes are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 62.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The a Potato economy, worth 391 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 54,520 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
When people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, a Potato athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potato's national animal is the man, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
