The heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.
Producers David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer said that Sacha Baron Cohen's dictator character of Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen was inspired by real-life dictators Kim Jong-Il, Idi Amin, Muammar Al Gathafi, Mobutu Sese Seko, Ne Win, Than Shwe, and Saparmurat Niyazov.
You seem educated.
Zoey: Yes, I went to Amherst.
General Aladeen: I love it when women go to school. It's like seeing a monkey on rollerskates. It means nothing to them, but it's so adorable for us.
The photos of Aladeen and his past exploits aren't all unique. Some of the photos on the wall are mirrored copies, while most are just duplicates scattered around.
In loving memory of Kim Jong-il
