Wadiya is a picturesque South African country that is under the sole rule of a tyrant dictator named Aladeen. There are so many rooms in his palace that even the owner himself did not visit most of them and would easily get lost in the countless corridors if he did not have a compass and a huge security staff. Aladeen suffers from megalomania and therefore the image of his monarch can be found anywhere, which sometimes even reaches the point of absurdity. The hero does not tolerate being contradicted. Because his word is the same faith of all, and any minor violation is punishable by death, without trial or investigation.
In his state, he even organized his own Olympic competitions, in which he himself was the only participant and, of course, the winner. The UN Council summons the dictator to an urgent meeting, which will discuss the reluctance of the ruler of Wadiya to give up his country’s nuclear potential. But once in America, Aladeen becomes a victim of kidnappers. Having barely escaped a cruel reprisal, he finds himself completely alone in a huge city, without any documents proving his identity. He needs to return to his homeland in any way and prevent the impending coup. He will not allow democracy in his house in any case.
