The Idiocracy of Lamebrainia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heidi Crowter with an even hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, complete lack of prisons, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 17.909 billion Lamebrainians 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 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 9,111 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 508,768 convolutions, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,487,355 per year while the poor average 26,661, a ratio of 130 to 1.

Maxtopian slaves are routinely sold as an optional extra for household appliances, many politicians carry out their morning ablutions in public restrooms, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Lamebrainia, and royals are always ready with their diamond-encrusted toilet plungers in case a royal flush doesn't work. 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 77th in the world and 1st in Glass Gallows for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 30,074.21 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
