The Potatonic Order

Population1.073 billion



The Democratic Military State of The Potatonic Order is a massive, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.073 billion Potatons 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tatoria. The average income tax rate is 46.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Potatonic economy, worth 131 trillion Taters a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 122,315 Taters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Potatonic Order's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Meianism.

The Potatonic Order is ranked 154,228th in the world and 129th in Spiritus for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.43 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
