Third World Dictator Cities of Illinois

I had to laugh at a quote in the SJ-R Online Breaking News. Urbana Alderwoman Heather Stevenson was the only dissenting vote on a smoking ban ordinance passed yesterday in that city.
“I don't think we should be a Third World dictator city that tells these people they have to go smoke-free," she said.
OK Heather, whatever.

Third World Dictator Cities in Illinois, according to the SJ-R article:
…include Chicago, Bloomington, Normal and Springfield. Cook County also has enacted a ban that will affect more than 100 Chicago suburbs, and similar ordinances are being considered in more than three dozen other communities.
So my entry for best word to describe Illinois is: Illiniosistan!

Very marketable. I can see the t-shirts and coffee mugs now.
