The Dictator is a 2012 BritishAmerican comedy film cowritten by and starring Sacha Baron Cohen as his fourth feature film in a leading role. The film is directed by Larry Charles, who previously directed Baron Cohens mockumentaries Borat and Brno. Baron Cohen, in the role of Admiral General Aladeen, the dictator of the fictional Republic of Wadiya visiting the United States, stars alongside Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, Jason Mantzoukas, and an uncredited appearance by John C. Reilly.

For years, the Republic of Wadiya located in the Horn of Africa, supplanting the actual nation of Eritrea has been ruled by Admiral General Haffaz Aladeen Sacha Baron Cohen, a childish, tyrannical, sexist, antiwestern, and antisemitic despot who surrounds himself with female bodyguards, sponsors alQaeda specially giving shelter to Osama Bin Laden after they killed his double one year ago and is working on developing nuclear weapons to attack Israel. He also refused to sell Wadiyas oil fields, a promise he made to his father on his deathbed. After the United Nations Security Council resolves to intervene militarily, Aladeen travels to the UN Headquarters in New York to address the council.Shortly after arriving, Aladeen is kidnapped by Clayton John C. Reilly, a hitman hired by his treacherous uncle Tamir Ben Kingsley, whom Aladeens father passed over as successor in favor of his son. Tamir then replaces Aladeen with a dimwitted political decoy named Efawadh Baron Cohen, whom he intends to manipulate into signing a document nominally democratizing Wadiya while opening the countrys oil fields to Chinese and other foreign vested interests. Aladeen escapes after Clayton accidentally kills himself in a botched torture attempt when his corpse is discovered Tamir thinks Aladeen has been killed. However, Aladeen is practically unrecognizable as Clayton shaved off his trademark long beard prior to his death. ........
