The Idiocracy of Lamebrainia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heidi Crowter with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.695 billion Lamebrainians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of 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 a remarkable 9,579 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 512,394 convolutions, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,534,285 per year while the poor average 8,157, a ratio of 555 to 1.

Nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, many are questioning Heidi Crowter wearing an Eckie-Ecola baseball cap during a keynote speech, mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels, and bleach is the nation's most common pesticide. 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 230,877th in the world and 10th in Glass Gallows for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -125.02 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
