                                                                                        #1. He became dictator after serving as the personal dentist to the former psycho-in-chief, Saparmurat Niyazov (aka Turkmenbashi, "Father of all Turkmen").

                                                                                        #2. Nobody can agree on how to spell his name. Gurbanguly Berdymuhamedov, Berdymukhammedov, Berdimuhamedow, and Berdimuhamedov are all seen, because it's generally double-transcribed from Turkmen into Cyrillic Russian, and then into the Latin alphabet.
                                                                                        #3. Less fun fact: Turkmenistan is one of the only countries in the world to score a perfectly awful 7.0 on Freedom House's score of civil and political rights. In fact, they rate it as being in a three-way tie for second-most unfree country on Earth (tied with South Sudan and Eritrea, but behind Syria). It scores worse than North Korea. An "oil kleptocracy" is how FH describes Turkmenistan.
