The Idiocracy of Lamebrainia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heidi Crowter with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.591 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 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 an astonishing 10,242 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 522,803 convolutions, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,678,826 per year while the poor average 123,403, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

It takes a village to catch a criminal, unruly children often visit adult websites when angry with their parents, takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears, and Heidi Crowter claims tax rises are the result of 'curses'. 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 243,773rd in the world and 12th in Glass Gallows for Most Secular, with 0.4 Atheism Rate.
