The People's Republic of PotatoFarmers is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Pikashru Nakisan with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 2.005 billion Potatomers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fiskadaha. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Potafarmer economy, worth 168 trillion Totatoes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,119 Totatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, and biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PotatoFarmers's national animal is the Potato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PotatoFarmers is ranked 147th in the world and 120th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 373 Valid Endorsements.
