Name that Country!

Really quickly – what’s the first country that comes to mind from the following description?

  • You’re not allowed to travel without papers or warrantless searches from the authorities.
  • You have no right to a speedy trial, and can be indefinitely detained.
  • When crossing the border, you’re subjected to propaganda in the form of announcements and televisions talking about how great the country is and how it’s keeping you safe.
  • If every single email or phone call you’ve made has been secretly recorded and compiled.

North Korea?  The USSR? Communist China? Cuba?

Nope – it’s the United States of America!  All in the last 12 years too!
