The Armed Republic of The Potatonic Order is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-working, democratic population of 914 million Potatonists 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, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tatoria. The average income tax rate is 36.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Potatonic Orderian economy, worth 104 trillion Taters a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 114,432 Taters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, Potatonic Orderian politics is literally a blood sport, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Potatonic Order's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Potatonic Order is ranked 45,205th in the world and 46th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 1.5 Weapons Per Person.
