The Idiocracy of Lamebrainia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heidi Crowter with an even hand, and renowned for its conspicuous electricity pylons, rampant corporate plagiarism, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 15.4 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 government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. 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 6,919 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 an amazing 449,287 convolutions, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,935,020 per year while the poor average 66,561, a ratio of 29.1 to 1.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, and people all over Lamebrainia are dying of 'Mad Village Idiot Disease'. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Folly.

Lamebrainia is ranked 171st in the world and 2nd in Glass Gallows for Most Corrupt Governments, with 716.8 Kickbacks Per Hour.
