This government claims 99% of its people are happy with it. Hint: It's not North Korea.
Thailand's military government, which took power after a coup d'etat, has good news: 99 percent of the country's people are happy with its performance, according to a new poll taken by the government, the Bangkok Post reported.
The poll, taken by the government's National Statistical Office, found 99.3 percent of the 2,700 people surveyed, were satisfied with the government's overall performance, the report said Wednesday.
Among the things that made them happiest: the government's moves to keep lottery ticket prices at 80 baht, which was met with 99.9 percent approval, the report said.
It wasn't all roses, however, with more than half the respondents wanting the government to put the brakes on rising consumer-product prices and more than a third wanting help with falling prices of agricultural commodities, the report said.
