This picture first made me think of the filing cabinet walls of the central bureaucracy in the Futurama episode "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back", and then of the movie "Brazil".

Where do they go for potty breaks? Is it built into the desk?

It's a pic of their Social Security Administration. Here's an article about a tiny bit of the mechanics that's fairly readable using google chrome to translate: http://www.novinky.cz/domaci/318594-devet-tisic-supliku-obsahuje-udaje-temer-vsech-obyvatel-cr.html
And totally readable if you know Czech. :p

The video is pretty interesting, especially when they open a drawer just after the 2 minute mark.
