Fortune and folly 

At first blush, the story of The Inspector General calls to mind the term "Potemkin village." But there's much more to it than that. Considered one of the best comedies of all time, it's set in a small Russian town that falls into chaos upon hearing an inspector general from St. Petersburg will audit it.
