A Movie Idea

Yours to grab freely. I think this would make a great movie: Suppose there is a planet with lots of history and all sorts of international treaties and many possible problem areas. International diplomacy is carried out in various ways but is largely based on tradition and code of behavior. Then suppose that the most powerful country on this planet elects a fraternity boy to run it, a guy with no interest in world affairs, no education, no real experience. He's just out to have fun, to have a few beers, to goose a few world leaders, to trample on a few cultural sensitivities.

Wouldn't that be a fun premise for a movie? And then we could have him get faith of a particularly rigid type. Imagine all the possible plot variations! This would be so hilarious. In a movie.
