The Free Land of HereIsPotato is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chief Potato with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.312 billion HereIsPotatoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Patatia. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.
The thriving HereIsPotatoan economy, worth 524 trillion Potatoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 98,822 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers. Crime is totally unknown. HereIsPotato's national animal is the House cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
