The The Potato Duck Republic of PotatoValleyRegion is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Duckmaster with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, soft-spoken computers, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.204 billion PotatoValleyRegionians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potato Duck City. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient PotatoValleyRegionian economy, worth 366 trillion Potato Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 166,388 Potato Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Potato Duck City" t-shirts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PotatoValleyRegion's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Religious Freedom.

PotatoValleyRegion is ranked 239th in the world and 1st in Alnobia for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 551.15 Bank.
