CDR: Irritable Bureaucrat Syndrome

Irritable Bureaucrat Syndrome (IBS or Spastic Civil Servant Disorder) is a symptom-based diagnosis of governmental dysfunction characterized by ego bloating, verbal flatulence, citizen service deficiency, mission amnesia, accountability constipation, and diarrheal malfeasance. While IBS has no known organic cause, a disruption of the brain-conscience axis, myopic political loyalty and greed are thought to be important factors.

IBS is a source of chronic pain, fatigue, frustration and other symptoms for Citizens, and often contributes to civic apathy and antipathy. The high prevalence of IBS and significant effects on quality of life make it a disease with high social and financial costs. In extreme cases, IBS can have a direct effect on life expectancy (See Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, et al).

In most cases, avoidance of government interactions minimizes Citizen daily discomfort, though in chronic cases an adminectomy may be required. In extreme cases of metastasized Spastic Civil Servant Disorder, exchange transfusion treatment may be undertaken, via a coup ‘d tat or revolution.
