The Federal Potato Republic of Potatolandium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.951 billion Potatolandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Potatolandian economy, worth 414 trillion Potatoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,402 Potatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', the government seems embarrassed to be seen governing, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. 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 128,116th in the world and 6,747th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 38.57 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
