New NZ PM Ron Doshe (think Key or Goff) has all his Lottos come at once with the good oil strike, but picks the wrong time to lose the combination for his superloo, just when terrorists take Government House oil guests hostage. Junior coalition partner Betty Mahutonga takes charge as wannabe oil partners America, Russia, Australia, Italy, Germany and Britain rush to the rescue. Issues with digital Big Brother security, animal rights and nuclear invasion pour flames on this troubled oil bonanza.
