The People's Republic of PotaTown is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.556 billion PotaTownians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MosTato. The average income tax rate is 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong PotaTownian economy, worth 121 trillion Potatoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 78,312 Potatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio stations offer prizes to callers who can guess this month's most endangered species, birth rates have hit an all-time low, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by the Communist Party, and the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PotaTown's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PotaTown is ranked 165,135th in the world and 112th in New West Indies for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -8.29 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
