The Tuberous Garden of An Alliance of Potatoes is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Salaxalans with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, vat-grown people, and frequent executions. The hard-working, devout population of 1.389 billion Alliances of Potatoesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great Potato. The average income tax rate is 57.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Alliance of Potatoesian economy, worth 89.8 trillion Potatoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,652 Potatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed, the populace harbors a fierce hatred of the metric system, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, and male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. An Alliance of Potatoes's national animal is the Potato, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Potatoism.

An Alliance of Potatoes is ranked 32,777th in the world and 1st in The Potato Alliance for Most Developed, scoring 73.7 on the Human Development Index.
