World Assembly of The Studly Spud

Population5.703 billion

LeaderStudly Spud


The Up-Powered Potato of World Assembly of The Studly Spud is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Studly Spud with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.703 billion Spudlians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spudtropolis. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spudly economy, worth a remarkable 1,114 trillion Potatoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 195,368 Potatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Behind every local dictator is a Spudly advisor whispering in their ear, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime is totally unknown. World Assembly of The Studly Spud's national animal is the Spudulike, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Spudlyism.

World Assembly of The Studly Spud is ranked 40,948th in the world and 43rd in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 1.77 Weapons Per Person.
