The Federal Potato Republic of Potatolandium is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.81 billion Potatolandians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potatolandium City. The average income tax rate is 92.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Potatolandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,058 trillion Potatoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,362 Potatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potatolandium's national animal is the German Shepherd, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Potatolandium is ranked 43,625th in the world and 2,298th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,158.02 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
