An individual leader has no weird game-theoretic incentive to do things like strategically misrepresent their opinion.

I’m not sure this is true for real dictators. For instance, it has been suspected that Mao’s “hundred flowers” liberalization campaign was organized in order to draw all dissidents into the open.

I mean in terms of deceiving co-decision-makers. Deceiving entities outside the government is at least sometimes desirable.

Though I suppose it might be an advantage of larger decision-making bodies for democracies that they're less able to deceive the populace.
