The Empire of WhysashaPOTATO is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Sasha Blouse with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.123 billion Potatoians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Potato City. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Potatoian economy, worth 108 trillion POTATOES a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 96,962 POTATOES, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence, when flight control tells pilots to alter course the usual reply is "No, YOU move!", the native owl population is in permanent hibernation, and doughnut-makers claim their products are healthy because they are fortified with vitamins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WhysashaPOTATO's national animal is the POTATO, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Potatoism.
