Potatogion 2-1

Population886 million


The Unholy super clone of Potatogion 2-1 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 886 million Potatoes are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.9%.

The very strong Potatogiononian economy, worth 55.1 trillion Potatoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 62,220 Potatoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 225,612 per year while the poor average 12,227, a ratio of 18.5 to 1.

Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, the endangered saltwater humpback Potato is only seen in captivity programs, and adultery has been made a capital offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potatogion 2-1's national animal is the Potato, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Potatogion 2-1 is ranked 75,042nd in the world and 106th in Spiritus for Safest, scoring 87.24 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
