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 free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.585 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, 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 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Potatolandian economy, worth 366 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 141,591 Potatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

High school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Potatoes each year, an epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 96,325th in the world and 5,161st in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 680.56 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
