The Holy Red Potato of PotatoFarmers is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Pikashru Nisharian with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.034 billion Poafmers 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 Fiskadaha City. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Poafmersian economy, worth 413 trillion Totatoes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of 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 102,415 Totatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children often kick Vampireses for amusement, several inches are being added to first class seating, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and the Fiskadaha City Women's Prison Choir now has a baritone section. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PotatoFarmers's national animal is the Vampires, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Potatos.

PotatoFarmers is ranked 211,264th in the world and 9,565th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -189.62 on the Hayek Index.
