You mean call themselves Democratic People's Republic of XXXX?

Yes Minister sums it up well.

Sir Humphrey: East Yemen, isn't that a democracy?
Foreign Office Official: Its full name is the Peoples' Democratic Republic of East Yemen.
Sir Humphrey: Ah I see, so it's a communist dictatorship.
this is the second time i see Yes Minister referenced this week, what is that thing?
A 1980's British sitcom satirising the political life of a MP in a ministerial role.

Much of the humour is derived from the Cabinet Ministers who think they run the country and the Civil Service who really run it.

And the odd joke at the voters as well.

Hacker: Don't tell me about the press. I know exactly who reads the papers: the Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country; The Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the country; The Times is read by people who actually do run the country; the Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country; the Financial Times is read by people who own the country; The Morning Star is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country; and The Daily Telegraph is read by people who think it is.
Sir Humphrey: Prime Minister, what about the people who read The Sun?
Bernard: Sun readers don't care who runs the country, as long as she's got big tits.

Eventually Hacker becomes Prime Minister.
Sounds like something i should add to my list of TV shows to watch. Thanks.
