A terrible dictatorship, in which if you disobey anything the leader deems appropriate your ass will be electrified.
The leader and his minions function within a massive fortress so as not to be harmed by revolutionaries, or rebels.
Usually, but not always, it is undermined by the dictator's apprentice's estranged son.
Don't tell anyone, but since the Emperor fried my brother's ass, I've been considering becoming a rebel. I just can't take the hypocrisy of the Republic anymore.
