Once upon a time, mostly as a prank, a big silly Troll appeared on a gaudy golden staircase and announced that he wanted to lead a country. He tapped into fears of the country to put together votes and amazingly, alarmingly, got what he wanted. He was an awful President, he complained about a lot. During his time he never cared about the job.
After three years he was up for reelection. The beleaguered voters saw through his nefarious schemes and vote him out of office. It provides for an exceptionally happy, and therapeutic, ending!
