The People's Republic of PotatoFarmers is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Pikashru Nakisan with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.693 billion Potatomers 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fiskadaha. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Potafarmer economy, worth 121 trillion Totatoes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,829 Totatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PotatoFarmers's national animal is the Potato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PotatoFarmers is ranked 20,152nd in the world and 1,109th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 74.9 Years.
