Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
...the most advanced democracy in the world.

How can this phrase be made to drip with sufficient irony, sarcasm and venom to convey the pathetic standard which it describes?

I have a vivid mental image of a canned-food billboard ad with the line "contains the most advanced democracy in the world!"

What?? Why're you looking at me like that? It does sound like an empty slogan, and I've just been travelling for seven hours straight...
