The People's Republic of PotaTown is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.731 billion PotaTownians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MosTato. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong PotaTownian economy, worth 220 trillion Potatoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 80,603 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PotaTown's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PotaTown is ranked 52,122nd in the world and 13th in New West Indies for Most Authoritarian, with 961.58 milliStalins.
