A big potato

Population2.015 billion

LeaderFerenc Gyapjasy


The Empireum of A big potato is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ferenc Gyapjasy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, infamous sell-swords, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.015 billion Potatens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potatolittey. The average income tax rate is 40.2%.

The powerhouse Potaten economy, worth 182 trillion Potaesties a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 90,324 Potaesties, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', it's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing, and Potatens believe the only thing that will make you happy is being unhappy with who you are. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A big potato's national animal is the Potato, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

A big potato is ranked 78,192nd in the world and 54th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 40.18 Effective Tax Rate.
