The %%The World Assembly Elite%% of PotatoFarmers is a massive, safe nation, ruled by WA Secretary-General with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.616 billion Elites of the World Assembly enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of World Assembly. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient WA Elitism economy, worth 380 trillion WA Dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,298 WA Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, cows have more rights than the average citizen, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PotatoFarmers's national animal is the cows, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Elitism.

PotatoFarmers is ranked 9,348th in the world and 551st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 90.21 on the Human Development Index.
