Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Potato Republic of Potatolandium is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.235 billion Potatolandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potatolandium City. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Potatolandian economy, worth 315 trillion Potatoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,155 Potatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potatolandium's national animal is the German Shepherd, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Potatolandium is ranked 6,838th in the world and 308th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 96.64 Quips Per Hour.
