Whichever is currently wealthiest and has the most modern medicine and technology. I'd rule my citizens with a rod of iron but occasionally bewilder them with prudish laws against rude bumperstickers and showing flashes of thong/underwear in public. I'd outlaw free speech because it's a dictator's worst nightmare and would keep very tight rein on the internet and all other forms of media. (Hey, if I'm going to be a dictator I may as well do it right).Christopher Bunn said:...which country would you despotically rule?
I'd set a required national caloric intake/limit, depending in part but not solely on the BMI and overall health of individuals of certain ages. Doctors would have the authority to make alterations on a case-by-case basis as necessary. My goal would be to make my citizens the fittest and healthiest in the world - the envy of every other dictator. This wouldn't be for benevolent reasons. Every dictator needs a strong army in fighting shape.Christopher Bunn said:1. Would you subjugate your citizens to a certain diet? Explain.
Yes. I prefer flared below the knee. Anything else gives me a pear shape. If I can't wear skinny, nobody gets to.Christopher Bunn said:2. Would you outlaw skinny jeans?
Only if it was necessary to promote and continue my dictatorship.Christopher Bunn said:3. Would you create a new religion?
No Biebers, Kardashions, or anyone similar. The celebrities of my nation wouldn't be pop stars, they'd be something useful, like doctors, cops, scientists, firefighters...Christopher Bunn said:4. Would you allow Justin Bieber entry? Give examples.
