What do you do when you are forced (or socially pressured) to do something that you don’t really want to do? The Dictator’s Ball was a party hosted by the Grand and Glorious Ruler Hedonia, a 10-year-old pug dictator, whom partygoers were required by law to worship. This dictatorship championed hedonism as an all-encompassing socio-political philosophy, exploring the way we act as individuals and in groups under overbearing, morally questionable political structures. Dissidents to the regime were punished by way of a math test, as enforced by Hedonia’s Royal Guards.
