Pocket-sized European right-wing paranoia

Zoltán Mihály Orosz is the hyper-energetic and ultra-nationalistic mayor of Érpatak, a small village with 1,750 inhabitants in eastern Hungary. Mayor Orosz is possessed by delusions of order, discipline and control, and divides the villagers into groups of "builders" and "destroyers" – supporters and opponents of his "Érpatak Model". The mayor hates the liberal democracy and the liberal media, but more than anything he hates the "International Masonic Jewish Network" lead by billionaire-philanthropist George Soros – a Jew of Hungarian descent – who he believes is on a mission to destroy Hungary.
