When locals in a small town learn that an undercover government inspector is coming for a surprise visit, an unfortunate case of mistaken identity sends the village spiraling into a world of panic and greed. Fearing such a visit will expose the extent of the town’s corruption, the mayor and other local government officials set off in a hilarious flurry of activity to cover up their various misdeeds and prepare for the inspector’s arrival. In "The Government Inspector," bribery is used to cover up the leaderships’ failings. Is there such a thing as a non- corrupt politician? Are politicians ever able to detach their own beliefs or their agenda to make decisions for the good of the people and not themselves? Is Nikolai Gogol pointing the finger solely at the Russian government? Or is the idea of government corruption universal?
