The Idiocracy of Lamebrainia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heidi Crowter with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.018 billion Lamebrainians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Incubatorium. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Lamebrainian economy, worth a remarkable 9,748 trillion convolutions a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 512,586 convolutions, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,342,302 per year while the poor average 31,112, a ratio of 107 to 1.

Chickens roam the streets freely, Lamebrainian companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, and hazmat suits are a common Lamebrainian garb. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Lamebrainia's national animal is the village idiot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Folly.

Lamebrainia is ranked 65,446th in the world and 5th in Glass Gallows for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,797.93 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
