    Through nepotism, he gave his wife and family members prominent positions in the government.
    He developed a personality cult and gave himself the titles of 'Leader' and 'Genius of the Carpathians.' He also carried around a large, king-like scepter.
    His disastrous policies on childbirth led to thousands of children being abandoned and raised in squalid, state-run orphanages.
    He refused to acknowledge the presence of AIDS in the country.
    He honestly believed that the Romanian people loved him and because of this, his dozens of bodyguards only had two guns to share amongst themselves.

    He condemned the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.
    He tried to win the Nobel Peace Prize by attempting to mediate peace between the PLO and Israel and by sending aid to African countries.
