The Holy Potato Cult of The Great Potato Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Heather Capsicum Annuum with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.004 billion Potatoians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aartappel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Potatoian economy, worth a remarkable 1,322 trillion Potatoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 264,260 Potatoes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,181,225 per year while the poor average 36,666, a ratio of 32.2 to 1.

Mandatory daycare is provided by the government, a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorous, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, and Harry Potter books are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. The Great Potato Empire's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Holy Church of the Glorious Potato.

The Great Potato Empire is ranked 5,326th in the world and 15th in Spiritus for Lowest Crime Rates, with 104.92 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
