I guess the humor works especially for southern European people. Not because other countries are not making fun of their politicians, but because of the way they portray them here and quite a few little details that might get lost in translation (some literally if you're not Italian speaking).
I myself had quite a lot of fun with this one because I could see Greek politicians do the same thing. More or less of course because after all this is portrayed in its most extreme form. But as the director would say, most things in the movie come from real life (experience). And while its characterization might very well be quite appalling to a lot of people, it is done in a fashion to offend as many as possible anyway.
