By TruePublica Editor: You’ve just been unexpectedly transported to the alien nation of Kleptotors 186. The planet has substantial mineral wealth and food diversity and is populated with a sophisticated society arranged around the type of democratic principles we are used to back on Earth. Unfortunately, the wealth of the Kleptos has come about through corrupt leaders (see – dedicated Wikipedia page) that use their power to exploit the people and natural resources of their own territory in order to extend their personal wealth and political powers. Sadly, this system involves the misappropriation of public funds at the expense of the wider population.
