1 of the defitions of totalitarian is: of or pertaining to a centralized government that does not tolerate parties of differing opinion and that exercises dictatorial control over many aspects of life.

Another defition is relating to a system of government that is centralized and dictatorial and requires complete subservience to the state.

This mean that the government is in complete control of the country.
