The Dictatorship of World Assembly of The Studly Spud is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 640 million 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spudtropolis. The average income tax rate is 17.1%.

The Spudly economy, worth 39.1 trillion Potatoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 61,046 Potatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, and clergy never mention brand names for fear of losing their government subsidies. Crime is almost non-existent. World Assembly of The Studly Spud's national animal is the Matrixicorn.

World Assembly of The Studly Spud is ranked 128,302nd in the world and 242nd in Spiritus for Highest Drug Use, scoring 35 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
