The Idiocracy of Lamebrainia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heidi Crowter with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.554 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 primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Incubatorium. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Lamebrainian economy, worth an astonishing 10,304 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 526,953 convolutions, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Teachers are dying as they attempt to read 500 word essays without pausing for breath, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, the national defense strategy is a little floppy, and cholera is seen as the holiest of diseases. 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 34th in the world and 1st in Glass Gallows for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 121.09 Whatever.
