The United Socialist States of Potentiania is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 821 million Potentianians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. The average income tax rate is 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Potentianian economy, worth 79.7 trillion chips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 97,057 chips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Not even good behaviour will get transgender inmates any special perks, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, computers are used primarily for word processing and solitaire, and no one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Potentiania's national animal is the snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Potentiania is ranked 80,905th in the world and 2,662nd in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 47 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
