Death of Stalin/Paranoia game
Unless it's StalinMush(tm). Then, mandated leadership is encouraged and bannings for failure/cowardice (enforced by staff-appointed Commissar) will help keep the people strong.
I so want this. I'm picturing a game where xp is spent staying alive rather than becoming an uber character. All of the characters are party members, even if they don't know it--their parents signed them up for their sixth birthday or something, and yeah, everyone is on a list.
Weekly plots revolve around Stalin wanting a wedge of cheese from a certain deli or something, and people have to scramble to get it, who cares what happens. Maybe like a slapstick shadowrun vibe with a sprinkling of 1984 to it or something.
Would people be interested in something like this? I think it could be squeezed for a solid year of fun rp with many characters disappearing off of the wiki.

The skill list in my head is amazing. Super important skills like:
- Bus Throwing
- Report Writing
- Knowledge (Stalin's Dietary Allergies)
- Apologizing Without Accepting Fault
- Agreeing with the Boss
- Satisfying Execution Technique

@SG LOLOLOL BRING YOUR CHILD TO WORK DAY
"Meet my son, boss! His name is Joseph."
And another Joseph.
A GIRL NAMED JOSEPH
EDIT: Corrected Josef to Joseph. Mentioned Mengele earlier.

On second thought, this idea could also become WORKING A NORMAL ASS JOB IN A NORMAL ASS OFFICE MUX
But with more dilbert and assassinations.
I was talking with a coworker, and we both think this would work best as a Powered by The Apocalypse convention one shot. I think I'm going to whip up a Stalin's Birthday scenario with the skill list above.
@SG Could do it as Fiasco?
It would be a great Fiasco setting, but I think it would require more work than I want, and in the past, Fiasco hasn't been a great draw at the local con.

Your title already has it. Paranoia is pretty much that game.
