The People's Republic of PotaTown is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.307 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 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong PotaTownian economy, worth 100 trillion Potatoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 76,853 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader is refusing to make decisions until the Moon is out of Capricorn, every week is blindness awareness week, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. 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 15,614th in the world and 8th in New West Indies for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 4,435.72 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
