Totalitarianism is the 9th stage of Advanced in Super Monkey Ball 2 (28th in Super Monkey Ball Deluxe), the 9th stage of Volcanic Magma in Story Mode (15th in Super Monkey Ball Deluxe), and the 88th stage of Ultimate without continues (68th with continues).
This stage has a long, flat floor with poles on it. These poles contain rings that fall down and are capable of pushing you through the floor of the stage. There is a play switch and a fast-forward switch.
To get to the goal, it is recommended to activate the play switch as it is much harder to beat it on fast-forward. From here, proceed in the general direction of the goal while staying away from the poles, so you don't get hit by the rings. Roll and stay at bananas as they are safe spots. Repeat this pattern until you make it to the goal.
In Banana Mania, a fairly severe glitch occurs when touching the ring on the second to last pole on the left. Doing so will warp the player, either up, down or diagonal, depending on where it is touched, leading to some unusual results.
