Potato Cubed

Population7.834 billion


The Nomadic Peoples of Potato Cubed is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.834 billion Potato Cubedians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Potato Cubedian economy, worth 125 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 quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 16,064 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, gun ownership is compulsory, tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potato Cubed's national animal is the potato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Potato Cubed is ranked 51,620th in the world and 65th in Caer Sidi for Most Beautiful Environments, with 656.66 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
