Which dictator would Orac have been?

Boring.

However, compared to the way many dictators meet their well-deserved ends, I suppose not as horrible as the result could have been (Orac as Hitler or Stalin, for instance), and, although he was a serious authoritarian who let ex-Nazis hide in his country, including Josef Mengele. Given how much I loath Nazi-ism, getting this result is still disturbing...

Alfredo Stroessner
You scored 0 Ego and 2 Ideology!
As you might've guessed, General Alfredo Stroessner's (1912- ) father was a German emigrant to Paraguay. The workaholic Stroessner overthrew Paraguay's civilian government in 1954 and began work on a sort of low-calorie fascism, throwing money into massive construction projects, battling with the Church, handing out parcels of land to military veterans, and providing refuge to escaped Nazis. He was less brutal than most of his contemporaries, and Paraguay's economy benefitted from his efforts, but the people grew tired of him and he was overthrown in 1989. As of this writing, the old bat is still alive and retired in Brazil.

Don't take this the wrong way, but you and Stroessner just aren't very, well, interesting. No torchlit rallies, no enormous statues, no threats of war, no daring political power plays. Just solid, predictable policy. But remember, the nail that sticks its head out is the first to get hammered. Stroessner knew this, and hung around for 35 years. That's plenty of time for you to redecorate the Presidential Palace to your liking.

Ha! I got Kadaffi (or Quadaffi, or Caddddaffeee). I think it's because none of the answers were any good, so I came across looking really confused . . . and confusing. Hooray for qeaUxdawpHeIAe!

I got... Gen. Sani Abacha (1943-1998). Someone of whom I've never heard, I'm ashamed to say.

What, you never got a "Nigerian letter" scam email.

Anyway, I also got the good General.
