The Federal Potato Republic of Potatolandium is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.55 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potatolandium City. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Potatolandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,349 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 common. Average income is an impressive 157,876 Potatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The well-to-do in The North Pacific are never on time for important appointments, bris parties are all the rage, ceremonial zweihänders are used in holy rituals, and a historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation. 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 14,939th in the world and 344th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 1,116.87305603412 Days.
