Megalomania 

Colossal Stalin staue Mao staue Kim staue

megalomania \meg-uh-lo-MAY-nee-ah; -nyuh\, noun:
1. A mania for grandiose or extravagant things or actions.
2. A mental disorder characterized by delusions of grandeur.

And this is just mind-boggling: The Official Home Page of North-Korea*

* This is a not really the official site, but, as my friend said on occasions, it could be true and therefore it does not mater.

Personality cult is the direct result of the megalomania that all these dictators suffer from. The same megalomania also dictates their adoption of political doctrine and the method of governance, all of them embrace some social variant as their political system and run the country in a top-down fashion.

'Laissez faire' does not exist in their lexicon.
