Try to sum up the stance on governance that you are taking in a single paragraph, like this:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that although all men are endowed with certain inalienable rights by their creator. The average man lacks the integrity, inclination and fortitude to preserve these rights against forces greater then themselves.
As such, the ideal of self-governance and inalienble right is incapable of preservation due to mankinds weakness.
Therefore, you may all go fuck yourselves."

I've joined too, it was either that or a DF specific region.

Its weird, one of the issues had the opposite to the result I expected, I made it so that a minority group and a majority group have equal speaking time to prevent filibustering. You know, its like giving a small group one vote and a large group one vote, its biased in favour of the minority, yet doing this gave me "the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority" and reduced the Political Freedoms. Maybe I'm missing the opposite of the argument, but "clear-cut case"?

The Sultanate of Silly Women

"Sleep is good"

UN Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists Civil Rights:
Very Good Economy:
Fair Political Freedoms:
Superb Location: Isle of Erba Buona

The Sultanate of Silly Women is a small, socially progressive nation, notable for its burgeoning fishy population. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 16 million love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government concentrates mainly on Education, although Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 37%, but much higher for the wealthy. A large private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Soda Sales and Pizza Delivery.

Voting is compulsory, punitive tariffs protect local industry, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and the death penalty has been reintroduced. Crime is relatively low. Silly Women's national animal is the fishy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the flip flop.

Silly Women is ranked 46,461st in the world for Best Weather.

The Dictatorship of Ubela

"Wir besitzen Sie, regieren wir Sie. "

UN Category: Psychotic Dictatorship
Civil Rights: Rare
Economy: Weak
Political Freedoms: Outlawed
Location: the South Pacific

The Dictatorship of Ubela is a tiny, safe nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 million are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded morass -- devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 41%, 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 Information Technology.

Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Ubela's national animal is the black mamba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the chinchilla.

The Protectorate of Erba Buona
"To protect the Isle of Erba Buona and influence others."


UN Category: Iron Fist Consumerists
Civil Rights: Some
Economy:Reasonable
Political Freedoms:Few
Location: Isle of Erba Buona

The Protectorate of Erba Buona is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 million are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous government is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 30%, but much higher for the wealthy. A large private sector is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Erba Buona's national animal is the raptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the browning.

The Queendom of Jordynish
"Pleasure and plenty for all"

democratic socialists

The Queendom of Jordynish is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws. Its hard-nosed population of 5 million are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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, Religion & Spirituality, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 49%, but much higher for the wealthy. An almost nonexistent private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Crime is totally unknown. Jordynish's national animal is the pegasus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the quoney.
