In "The Glorious People’s Paradise" they have merged the idea of God with the Dear Leader. Rather than God watching when you do something bad, it is the leader. A traveler from that country comes to America, and discovers something odd amongst the most entrenched capitalist classes. While they don’t believe in a God who watches over them, they do believe in a nebulous evil force who is always out to take what they have. They feel The Criminal is always alert to their slightest slip up in security. The traveler is surprised to see everyone lock everything up, waiting for the day The Criminal tests them.
