Create a new constitution
Harsher alcohol and tobacco laws.

Raise taxes for rich people
Declare soap operas in the afternoon illegal
Make anime and anime merchandise easier to get
Do whatever's in my power to get rid of the guerrillas and criminal gangs.
Increase the number of policemen and make sure they do their job correctly.
Declare corruption a crime and actually send corrupt politicians to prison with no benefits.
Make the death penalty legal again, and use it on child abusers and serial killers.

Also, once all of these are done, I'd retire and let democracy run its course again.


Love this answer xD

Yeah do the thing that the politicians can't agree with and do what the people want, that should clear up the "Dictatorship" taboo -.- But I see how democracy is the best thing, but its just when there are so many politicians, there are alot of different views and opinions, if you could get one person that could lead a country for the better, with dictatorship it might end up good, not being all greedy like Gadaffi or being all messed up like Hitler.

Btw keep the posts coming they are great xD

Embezzle shit loads of money and build up an island paradise in secret, and then get plastic surgery and remove all my fingerprints and stuff one night in secret. Then I'd kill the plastic surgeon so no one would know what I look like and go to said island in a round about way so that it would be impossible for anyone to track me down and live out the rest of my life in paradise.

Of course I'd have all the proper documents forged so I could travel anywhere else I'd like with no one the wiser.

I'd also be sure to bring women.They'd all be there voluntarily of course, but what woman wouldn't love to spend her life on a tropical island paradise with a rich, handsome man?

And just for safety the island would have full missile defense and an escape sub.

And just for fun I'd start a war with a country I didn't like before leaving and having my double replace me to carry out the war.

TINY MINISKIRTS!!!!!!


No but seriously, I would run my country on 100% renewable energy and have much tougher wildlife protection laws.
Food animals would be treated humanely (not stuffed into huge warehouses and forced to grow as fat as possible) and people would only get meat 3-4 times/week max (who actually needs meat every day?!).
I would cultivate friendly relations with my neighbours and the rest of the world so there would be no need for war (though I would keep a military force for defense - like the Swiss).
I would put a much greater emphasis on science and research, in order to solves problems like ocean acidification and desertification.
I would make Microsoft fix windows8 and ban internet explorer.
Finally, I would make gay marriage and marijuana legal and let people decide for their own damn selves if they want to smoke or get married.

He he if I was a Dictator I would invest money in discovering a way to live enternaly and lie to the people saying it's for all of them when in reality it will only be for me. Once it is discovered I'll use it and kill all the people who invented it and know about it and then rule the entire world forever.

I win all arguments by default.

A robust space program would be established, for the purpose of exploiting off-world resources to strengthen the economy. If a superpower like the US threatens to invade or otherwise interfere with my country's economy, I'll just let slip a comment about what a close call the Tunguska Event was, and how much of a shame it would be if another one were to occur over their airspace. Eventually, my country's seat of government and the bulk of its population would migrate to space so that if such an event were to happen, it would affect us the least.

The government that runs the day-to-day operations of the country would be an experiment in technocracy, where those best able to run the various sectors of society are the ones in charge. I will actually listen to the advice my experts give me, factor them into my decision-making process, and insist that everyone else in government do the same. The technocracy's executive powers will be expanded upon my death to fill the resulting power vacuum. All this is to ensure that my country is in capable hands, even long after my death.

My country's educational system would be one that would be the envy of the rest of the world, with the highest standards and the best results. Tuition would be freely available as a privilege of citizenship (paid for through taxes), but would also be open to foreign exchange students for a reasonable per-term fee (the children of citizens would be granted tuition as if they were citizens themselves until their fifteenth birthday, after which they must apply for citizenship in order to continue to receive free tuition, although tuition would be such that one could work part-time and still afford to pay full tuition without it being too much of a financial burden).

Citizenship would be something to be earned in my country, rather than being a consequence of birth as is the case in other countries throughout the world. Citizenship would be conferred upon people who sign up for tours of military service, community service, disaster relief, or for those who possess Doctorates in any field from an accredited university. Privileges of citizenship include freely available tuition, the right to challenge for office (office holders are encouraged to devise a suitable test for challengers, and if a challenger passes, then that challenger is promoted to sub-office holder for a period of time to learn the ropes of office under the tutelage of the challenger's predecessor), the right to bring petitions to government, the right to benefit from a healthy government retirement plan, as well as assorted social perks such as respect for one's accomplishments in much the same way as with military veterans.

Also, the roads and other infrastructure would be continually kept in working order, and the trains would run on time.

I'd pretty much just emulate Josip Broz Tito.

If I was dictator, I would work to make everyone more free and put less regulation on everything, I would also make everything cheaper by increasing salaries and reducing the amount of money circulating. I would also restart the Space program and get us a base on the moon by 2020. Finally, I would be good friends with my allies and be a formidable foe of my enemies.

You know you can change the default settings in the control panel, right?

You forgot world peace and eradication of the third world. Jesus, you have some high expectations for politicians, don't you?

Why do you even want to rule the world? You will have to deal with stressful responsibilities and paranoia.

Yeah as the title-.- If you were a dictator, what would you do?

I'm just curious because, every dictator that has been as of yet has always been evil in some way.. Don't want to name names but you probably know them :P

I myself sorta like the idea behind it, but its like the mustache *hitler* had no one has it, because he had it. Common thing to do, its a taboo.

I might be out of my mind, but still what are your thoughts xD?

If I were a dictator, I would go on a full fledged war against the world, damn straight. Lol, for personal gains of course, just for fun -.- Don't worry, I won't become some politician in the near future that has some massive plot to take over the world, so don't you worry ^^


Thaksin Shinawatra, the leader of Thailand, is a dictator, and he has made vast improvements to their society. Such as supplying water to impoverished areas that didn't get any.

In all reality, fix the country to my best ability . . . and if that doesn't work find a way of destroying the world and calling it a day.
