The Idiocracy of Lamebrainia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Heidi Crowter with an even hand, and notable for its fear of technology, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 18.315 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. 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 9,383 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 512,362 convolutions, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,510,001 per year while the poor average 136,799, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, the government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, and concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods. 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 7,483rd in the world and 2nd in Glass Gallows for Nudest, with 664.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
