The Idiocracy of Lamebrainia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heidi Crowter with an even hand, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, unlimited-speed roads, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.934 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, 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 an astonishing 10,479 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 525,698 convolutions, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,207,274 per year while the poor average 81,368, a ratio of 27.1 to 1.

Sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, customers who are not the epitome of politeness always find themselves at the back of the queue, and teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house. 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 231,299th in the world and 10th in Glass Gallows for Most Inclusive, scoring 3.86 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
