The Commonwealth of Patates is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.451 billion Patatesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potates. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Patatesian economy, worth 187 trillion Pats a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,954 Pats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and the once prosperous capital is in utter decline. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Patates's national animal is the Sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Patates is ranked 14,348th in the world and 409th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,459.42 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
