The Idiocracy of Lamebrainia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heidi Crowter with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.279 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, 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 9,999 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 518,653 convolutions, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,062,990 per year while the poor average 16,686, a ratio of 243 to 1.

Cubicles often double as graves as citizens literally work themselves to death, corruption is a game of two halves, skyscrapers get built in just days, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. 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 241,480th in the world and 11th in Glass Gallows for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -99.4 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
