The Free Land of HereIsPotato is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Chief Potato with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.497 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 543 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.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. Crime is totally unknown. HereIsPotato's national animal is the House cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

HereIsPotato is ranked 158,317th in the world and 8,046th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -21.45 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
