What's not to love?

Crazy inflation resulting in the largest bill of 500 dinar in 1981 making way for the 20,000 dinar bill by 1987?

Food shortages?

State-owned businesses the profits of which were disbursed by Belgrade? (80% of GNP produced by Slovenia and Croatia)

State Security Police visiting all foreigners prior to visits of foreign dignitaries because of paranoia based on that whole Gavril Princip thing?

Registering with the police any time you spend a night away from home?

Needing permission to leave the country?

Lack of consumer goods?

Zastava? (car not flag)
