The emperor of Lilliput is petty beyond belief. He executes his subjects for minor infractions or simply because they have annoyed him in some way. Very small in stature, he covets large things. He is superficial in character and thought. In contrast, the king of Brobdingnag is a true intellectual who cares about his subjects and likes to ponder the complexities of life. They are both leaders of their countries but are fundamentally different.
