The Potatonic Order

Population5.548 billion

LeaderLady Caeta


The Commonwealth of The Potatonic Order is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lady Caeta with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, feral children, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.548 billion Potatons have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tatoria. The average income tax rate is 54.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Potatonic economy, worth 849 trillion Taters a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,118 Taters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", the only issue that Lady Caeta has is that there aren't enough issues (The Potatonic Order has found 1 easter egg), it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, and many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories. Crime is totally unknown. 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 300,955th in the world and 300th in Spiritus for Most Primitive, scoring -391.4 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
