World Assembly of The Studly Spud

Population3.041 billion

LeaderStudly Spud


The Potato Power of World Assembly of The Studly Spud is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Studly Spud with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.041 billion Spudlians 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, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spudtropolis. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spudly economy, worth 509 trillion Potatoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 167,541 Potatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, the only Maxxmas gift frontline troops receive from officers is a bullet with the enemy's name on it, Spudly companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, and Studly Spud claims to know what infants are thinking. Crime is totally unknown. World Assembly of The Studly Spud's national animal is the Matrixicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Spudlyism.

World Assembly of The Studly Spud is ranked 60,314th in the world and 46th in Spiritus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,913.18 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
