The Holy Empire of Potatolandias is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Holy Potato with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 7.85 billion Potatolandiasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Potatolandiasian economy, worth 223 trillion Potato dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 28,470 Potato dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International tensions are high as Potatolandias threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, Potatolandias has designated Potatolandias City as its capital city, and Holy Potato has just been declared ruler of Potatolandias in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potatolandias's national animal is the Unitato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Potatolandias is ranked 98,258th in the world and 35th in The Democratic Republic for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,545.97 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
