I know that it's tough out in the Central Asian Republics

However to discover as I did today that the good people of Tajikistan have a minister who head up a minister called

(Fanfare) The Ministry for Extraordinary Situations has just made my day.

then to discover that they are not the only one but others such as Russia have a Minister with this title just provided the icing on the cake. Now I am sure there is a very good reason for it, and that there is probably something lost in the translation but please, please allow me to enjoy my fantasy minister dealing with a whole range of absurdity
