The Allied States of Potatopelago is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 430 million Potatopelagoans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ventspils. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Potatopelagic economy, worth 35.3 trillion Paktontas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,060 Paktontas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

A traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, spies caught red-handed are served cocktails on their first-class flights home, and visiting the best Potatopelagic restaurants requires keeping a visa on file. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Potatopelago's national animal is the Potato Partridge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Potatopelago is ranked 241,561st in the world and 932nd in Europe for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 45.31 Whatever.
