For God, Tsar and Fatherland

Episode Guide »
Mikhail Morozov is a Russian patriot, good Christian and successful businessman. He owns "Durakovo" -- "village of fools" -- 100 km southwest of Moscow. People come here from all over Russia to forget their troubles and become members of a happy village society. When they join the Village of Fools, the new residents abandon all their former rights and agree to obey Mikhail Morozov's strict rules. "What we have here is a democracy, it is a managed democracy, in which everyone has his place and in which everyone lives transparent lives, " says Morozov. The whole spectrum of state power -- political, spiritual and administrative -- gathers in the village for semi-private meetings with Morozov. All of them are Russian patriots. They discuss the future of Russia, their future and their aims.
