Test Your Political Power

Let's all see how well you can do if you decide to try out running a country, mmkay?

How?

http://www.nationstates.net

Sign up, choose what you want to happen, check in once a day and deal with the issue that occurs and then hobble along.
It's pretty simple and takes almost no time at all.


At the moment I am running the country like I'm some sort of super Republican:
The Holy Empire of Heavenly Splendor is a small, devout nation, notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9 million are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Religion & Spirituality, and Defence. Income tax is unheard of. A robust private sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Automobile Manufacturing.

Elections have been outlawed, nudity is frowned upon, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime is a serious problem. Heavenly Splendor's national animal is the snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the wafer.

Heavenly Splendor is ranked 5392nd in the region and 97,607th in the world for Highest Police Ratios.

The Dominion of ThatRedGuy
"No person, no problem"

UN Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy
Civil Rights:Very Good
Economy:Strong
Political Freedoms: Below Average
Location: the South Pacific

The Dominion of ThatRedGuy is a tiny, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5 million 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.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Social Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 17%. A small but healthy private sector is led by the Basket Weaving industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Automobile Manufacturing.

Crime is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. ThatRedGuy's national animal is the badger and its currency is the moo.

The Commonwealth of Antithia
"An okay nation formed by people just like us"

UN Category: Left-Leaning College State
Civil Rights: Superb
Economy: Good
Political Freedoms: Excellent

Antithia is a tiny, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5 million enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The small government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 12%. A healthy private sector is led by the Gambling, Retail, and Woodchip Exports industries.

Crime is a problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Antithia's national animal is the microscopic weevil and its currency is the dollarpound.

Recently, Antithia has made voting compulsory.

The Disputed Territories of Melopomene
"I get no kick from champagne"

The Disputed Territories of Melopomene is a tiny, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5 million 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.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 28%. A small but healthy private sector is led by the Retail industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Cheese Exports.

Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melopomene's national animal is the Big Bird and its currency is the Tradegy.

UN Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy

Civil rights: Very good

The Holy Empire of Heavenly Splendor
"Pray every day and hug every night, FOR THE LORD!"


UN Category: Corporate Police State
Civil Rights:
Some Economy:
Powerhouse Political Freedoms:
Outlawed

Location: The East Pacific
The Holy Empire of Heavenly Splendor is a small, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16 million are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government is mainly concerned with Defence, although Religion & Spirituality and Law & Order are secondary priorities. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9%. A robust private sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Woodchip Exports.

TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, the government is seen to favor Catholics, and citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements. Crime is moderate. Heavenly Splendor's national animal is the snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the wafer.

Heavenly Splendor is ranked 348th in the region and 9,703rd in the world for Most Pro-Market Nations.

"No person, no problem"

UN Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy
Civil Rights:Good

Political Freedoms:Below Average
Location: the South Pacific

The Dominion of ThatRedGuy is a small, pleasant nation, remarkable for its burgeoning badger population. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9 million 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.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 18%, but much higher for the wealthy. A small but healthy private sector is led by the Basket Weaving industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Automobile Manufacturing.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, badgers are considered a delicacy, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and voting is compulsory. Crime is relatively low. ThatRedGuy's national animal is the badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the moo.

ThatRedGuy is ranked 2967th in the region and 53,220th in the world for Most Pro-Market Nations.

The Disputed Territories of Melopomene is a small, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed population of 10 million 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.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 30%. A small but healthy private sector is led by the Retail industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Cheese Exports.

Voting is compulsory, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melopomene's national animal is the big bird and its currency is the tradegy.

Melopomene is ranked 1327th in the region and 25,647th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector.



30% TAX!! WTF! Wow, my poor people.

"By trying we can learn to endure adversity, another's."


UN Category: Democratic Socialists
Civil Rights:

Reasonable Political Freedoms:
Average

Location: The North Pacific
The Principality of Anviltania is a small, safe nation, notable for its burgeoning rabid platypus population. Its hard-nosed population of 7 million are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 35%, but much higher for the wealthy. A very small private sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry.

Voting is voluntary. Crime is well under control. Anviltania's national animal is the rabid platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the stone.

Anviltania is ranked 3538th in the region and 62,367th in the world for Rudest Citizens.

The Rogue Nation of Zatcha

"One possession per hand"


Civil Rights: Very Good
Economy: Reasonable
Political Freedoms: Few

The Rogue Nation of Zatcha is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. Its compassionate, cynical population of 5 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.
The large government concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although Commerce and Defence are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 30%, 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 Gambling.

Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low. Zatcha's national animal is the goblin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the dollar.

I must say, Im quite pleased with how it turned out, for chooseing the most chaotic outcomes.

I have two now. One is my main nation, and the other is part of my region's army. It can be deployed overseas in other regions during wartime.


The Grand Duchy of Westmorlandia
"Dulce et Decorum Est Pro Patria Procreari"

UN Category: Corporate Bordello
Civil Rights: Very Good
Economy: Thriving
Political Freedoms: Superb
Location: Great Britain and Ireland

The Grand Duchy of Westmorlandia is a small, economically powerful nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-working, intelligent population of 18 million are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Social Welfare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2%. A large private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Trout Farming and Basket Weaving.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, meat-eating is frowned upon, and the government is avowedly atheist. Crime is a serious problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Westmorlandia's national animal is the Carniverous Tangerine and its currency is the Kumquat.

Westmorlandia is ranked 20th in the region and 42,686th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry.



The Republic of The Scots Guards
"Nemo Me Impune Lacessit"

UN Category: Democratic Socialists
Civil Rights: Below Average
Economy: Reasonable
Political Freedoms: Good
Location: Great Britain and Ireland

The Republic of The Scots Guards is a small, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed population of 16 million are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 26%, but much higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry.

Haggiss are considered a delicacy, surveillance cameras are banned, military spending is on the increase, and genetic researchers have been expelled. Crime is moderate. The Scots Guards's national animal is the Haggis, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Victoria Cross.

The Scots Guards is ranked 16th in the region and 37,842nd in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry.





If anyone wants to join our region, Great Britain & Ireland, then feel free to. It's more or less brand new, and made up mostly of British people but there are some Americans there too. Loyal British Columbia wishes he was still part of our empire, bless him. We have plans to re-take Hong Kong.

Its compassionate, hard-working population of 36 million 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.

The medium-sized government is mainly concerned with Education, although Law & Order and Social Welfare are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 14%, but much higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is led by the Basket Weaving industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Arms Manufacturing.

Politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, and long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ThatRedGuy's national animal is the badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the moo.

ThatRedGuy is ranked 55,668th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides.

UN Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy
Civil Rights: Average

The Constitutional Monarchy of Riverlund is a tiny, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 6 million 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.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 25%. A small private sector is dominated by the Pizza Delivery industry.

Voting is voluntary and meat-eating is frowned upon. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riverlund's national animal is the timberwolf and its currency is the crown.

Riverlund is ranked 2981st in the region and 52,261st in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides.
Ok, the part that is bolded is due to an issue that arose concerning animal cruelty in the meat industry. All I did was put into practice reforms that make sure that animals used for food were dealt with humanely...as opposed to one opinion which was that the meat-eaters pay an extra tax to purchase it in the stores, with the tax rising in proportion to the cruelty with which the animal was dispatched. Yeah, right. So because I take a middle of the road approach, now the game thinks that meat-eating is frowned upon...lovely.

Oh well, I'm still doing pretty well for only two days of playing.

Everything is exaggerated. You can't take the game completely seriously in that regard. However, there is much more to it than just building up your nation. I think the most fun comes when you get involved in an active region. Great Britain & Ireland, my region, has just declared war, so I think we might be off to reclaim Hong Kong. Either that or we're going after some Nazi regions. There are contradictory reports.


Glad to see you've come to our region btw, RedMeat. I hope you stick around.

My application to the UN was accepted, and I've received three telegrams in the last 15 hours to relocate to a new region...two within three minutes of each other. I think I'll sit around another day and see how many more come through.
