I know almost none of you probably know what the fuck nationstates is. It's a kickass political simulator (not war and shit but actual politics and economy) on the web.

www.nationstates.net

You make decisions on issues they give you and It decides what kind of nation you will become. Also there is a economy calculator out there that gives you the hard numbers on your nation

www.nseconomy.thirdgeek.com

the entire community acts as a governing online body for the virtual world it's pretty fun.

HERES MY NATION'S SUMMARY

Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy
Civil Rights:Good
Economy:Frightening
Political Freedoms:Very Good

Location: Fidelia
Regional Influence: Minnow


The Zogist Empire of Daftatt is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the almighty Skybear Zogu with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 3.337 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldenrod. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Daftatt, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and Zoguerilla is one of the most popular forenames in Daftatt. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Daftatt's national animal is the Zoguerilla, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Tatt.

Daftatt is ranked 16th in the region and 29,921st in the world for Laxest Drug Laws.
If you try it out my nation is Daftatt and my region is Fidelia.


and yes, IT IS A FUCKING GAME! Very Happy

The Rogue Nation of Ryconacola
“Glory to the Xorse!”

Category: Left-Leaning College State
Civil Rights: Superb
Economy: Good
Political Freedoms: Below Average

Location: SLFS
Regional Influence: Minnow

The Rogue Nation of Ryconacola is a fledgling, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5 million enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 16%. A small private sector is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, followed by Information Technology and Soda Sales.

Crime is a problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ryconacola's national animal is the xorse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the horca.


RIP Hacker.

I got sick of Nation States. The UN is completely awful, and after like a month of making decisions, you're getting the same questions over and over again. At least, that's how it was 5 five years ago when I played. Maybe it's less repetitive now. I might be willing to give it another shot. I probably shouldn't though, I already spend way too much time not writing.

The Kingdom of Awsgamia is a fledgling, economically powerful nation, notable for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 6 million are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, pro-business government devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Voting is compulsory and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime is a serious problem. Awsgamia's national animal is the Red-backed Land-Shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Awsgram.

Awsgamia is ranked 5th in the region and 35,214th in the world for Laxest Drug Laws.

The People's Republic of Feistari

Image

“Evinco est praevaleo!” (In Conquest Victory)

Regional Influence: Superpower

The People's Republic of Feistari is a fledgling, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its strong anti-business politics. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 6 million are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Defence, and Religion & Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 47%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Cheese Exports.

Voting is compulsory and Space Whaless are considered a delicacy. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low. Feistari's national animal is the Space Whales, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Gremel.

Feistari is ranked 4th in the region and 19,092nd in the world for Laxest Drug Laws.

SLFS am I making the right call?
# "The fact is, the lyger population is out of control," says Beef-Based Agriculture spokesperson Randy Hamilton. "We have to do something about them anyway, so why not market them as tasty snacks? We could have lyger kebabs, lyger pies, lyger-on-a-sticks--the possibilities are endless! Let's not pass up this golden opportunity to provide a feast, if you will, for our economy."


# "I agree that something needs to be done about lyger over-population," says random passer-by Hope Mistletoe, "but eating them? That's kind of gross. Let's just shoot the ones we have to and shovel their bodies into ditches like normal."

This is the position your government is preparing to adopt.

# "I am shocked and appalled!" declared SPCA President Abraham Hamilton. "If anyone needs to be culled, it's us humans. The lygers were here first, remember? We need to take this as a sign to get our industry--agriculture in particular--to back off. The lyger is part of what makes OWDASSIA a great nation!"
