I'm so sick of these stupid dictators naming airports, towers, hospitals etc. after themselves... but now it's THE WHOLE CITY that has been renamed?! It's funny that the Tintin series already parodied this over half a century ago, with General Tapioca renaming his capital to Tapiocapolis. At least he had the decency to add -polis to the name to make it sound a bit more legit!

This sounds funny here, tapioca is a starch extracted from the cassava plant!
