The Dictatorship of The Grand Leader is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, parental licensing program, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 474 million subjects of His Greatness are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Gilded Throne. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient mindlessly loyal economy, worth 32.8 trillion Idol Tokens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 69,143 Idol Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Hairdressers are forced to use all the tricks of the trade after citizens became required to wear helmets at all times, male celebrity chefs are laughed at for their lack of manliness, prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, and military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Grand Leader's national animal is the human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Grand Leader is ranked 185,347th in the world and 1st in Oppressivania for Rudest Citizens, with 32 Insults Per Minute.
