The Junglist Robot Republic of Potatodom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sub Bass Hivemind v6 with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.85 billion Potatodomians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jive City. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The Potatodomian economy, worth a remarkable 5,925 trillion potats 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 160,788 potats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School football matches are usually five-a-side, anti-government web sites are springing up, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potatodom's national animal is the big fluffy cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Potatodom is ranked 177,849th in the world and 6,591st in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -73.89 on the Rand Index.
