Jennifer Government: NationStates is a nation simulation game. You create your own country, fashioned after your own ideals, and care for its people. Either that or you deliberately torture them. It's really up to you.
My country is this
The United Socialist States of 82much
"It is a common wealth not personal wealth"
UN Category: Democratic Socialists Civil Rights:Very Good Economy:Fragile Political Freedoms:Excellent Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Minnow
The United Socialist States of 82much is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 6 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 is mainly concerned with Social Welfare, although Healthcare and Education are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 56%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.
Crime is totally unknown. 82much's national animal is the praying mantis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the norki.
82much is ranked 4061st in the region and 63,406th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector.
4. Make your own fucking country then perhaps you would enjoy this country
The Imperial Corporate Republic of Neo-Industria motto: "World Domination for a Better Tomorrow"
UN Category: Corporate Police State Civil Rights:Few Economy:Frightening Political Freedoms:Unheard Of Location: Gamingforce
Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
The Imperial Corporate Republic of Neo-Industria is a massive, economically powerful nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.53 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Arms Manufacturing.
Citizens must pay to enjoy Neo-Industria's pristine beaches, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and the nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Neo-Industria's national animal is the corpse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Stock.
Neo-Industria is ranked 1st in the region and 7th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector.
In the game you decide what type of government you choose and are given certain values to place into the country you set up, then the computer spits out what describes the world you have chosen. I made many different types of governments and economies. Then it gives you issues to deal with.
If you choose to be a mocking ass about it so be it.
9. Most of Europe is not where he would want to live, then
If you want excellent health care, public education, mass transit, strong labor protections, and strong environmental protections, the money has to come from somewhere, and taxes have been the general avenue to pay for those. France, Germany, Sweden, etc. have tax rates comparable to your nation.
6. Your nation sounds a lot better than the other frightening states there
This was under "How to Play":
The left/right scale isn't used in NationStates. Because it's one-dimensional, it's not a very accurate way of measuring your politics. NationStates has three main scales: personal, economic, and political. In each case, you can be authoritarian (moral, or restrictive) or libertarian (liberal, or laissez-faire). For example, someone with left-wing politics might want high levels of personal freedom (e.g. no drug laws, gay rights), low levels of economic freedom (e.g. taxes, welfare), and average levels of political freedom (e.g. compulsory voting at elections). A libertarian might prefer high levels of freedom on all scales. An authoritarian might want the opposite.
10. I played for a few months, but the program is very stilted to the right
and there is little variety. I got my nation up to 2 billion with a very liberal government (in the traditional sense) but if you don't crack the whip and become some form of police state you can't create a good stable economy and your tax rates are always insanely high. It just got boring, always the same issues over and over with very limited options for how to deal with them, so you end up ignoring them. I doubt it is still there but it was called Chien Rouge (see avatar)
