The Idiocracy of Lamebrainia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heidi Crowter with an even hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 18.038 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, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 9,222 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 511,261 convolutions, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,526,125 per year while the poor average 26,283, a ratio of 134 to 1.

Wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and citizens who become homeless are immediately executed. 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 205,612th in the world and 18th in Glass Gallows for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -19.22 Effective Tax Rate.
