The The Potato Duck Republic of PotatoValleyRegion is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Supreme Duckmaster with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.243 billion PotatoValleyRegionians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potato Duck City. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient PotatoValleyRegionian economy, worth 374 trillion Potato Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 167,120 Potato Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, the national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid, government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, and every politician claims to be at least 1% Native PotatoValleyRegionian. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PotatoValleyRegion's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Religious Freedom.

PotatoValleyRegion is ranked 2,626th in the world and 1st in Alnobia for Best Weather, with 381 Meters Of Sunlight.
