Default NationStates.net

Anyone else know about this site? Basically, you found your own nation, decide issues to govern it, join factions, etc. You can govern your country as a dictatorship, a democracy, a corporate oligarchy, or whatever. I used the site a while back, but I've joined again, and it seems to have advanced quite a bit. The different factions you can join seem to have become quite sophisticated and well thought out. It's a pretty sweet way to waste time on the internet.

NationStates | create your own country

My country:

NationStates | The Federation of The Luxurious Beard of Odin

And my new region/faction:

NationStates | The Fascist Union

The Republic of Dooksville is a fledgling, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The quiet, industrious population of 5 million Dooksvilleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 47.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The fragile Dooksvillean economy, worth 101 billion dicks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 20,288 dicks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown. Dooksville's national animal is the sloths, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
greatest.

We can actually use a "Factbook" to create a national history that describes your nation's history, culture, politics, etc. It's pretty wizard. Here is my preliminary entry for my country, The Federation of The Luxurious Beard of Odin.

Quote:
The Nature of Our Nation

The Federation of The Luxurious Beard of Odin is a quasi-confederacy of previously independent tribes, now unified by our shared Germanic cultural and ethnic heritage. The decadent liberalism of the West infected our lands, threatening to erode the pride and purity of our proud peoples, but through a long and arduous struggle, we have cast aside our oppressors, both foreign and domestic.

We are unified under an overarching council of equals, drawn from each of the constituent states, but we have not abolished them. We honor our differences, as we venerate our shared heritage. Our heroes are heroes of all of The Luxurious Beard of Odin, but it would be an injustice to rob each peoples of their claim to their respective ancestors. It is through this respect that our allegiance will flourish.

The struggle is not yet complete however. The hated Christian religion -- which attempted to wipe out our cultures in order to erase our identities -- has been cast down: the churches built upon the holy sites dedicated to our "pagan" gods have been razed, and new temples have been erected in their place so that we may begin anew our worship of Odin, Thor, Freyja, etc. But the Christian religious caste still festers, and there are those of our people who still foolishly cling to their blasphemous teachings. In time, however, these poisonous elements will be purged by the righteousness of our fervor.

For the flame of the Teutonic spirit can never be truly extinguished. Our blood is aflame with the spirit of our ancestors and gods. The warriors of old possess us with their unrivaled strength, and a new era of glory is upon us through the teachings of National Socialism.

We hope to face the coming battles against the enemies of the German people with fellow nations dedicated to our cause and the spirit of true Nationalism.

The very strong Gishmontian economy, worth 275 billion pints of blood a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is 55,113 pints of blood, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 168,360 per year while the poor average 13,984, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.
More blood for the poor.

The Borderlands of Grimfrost is a fledgling, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The cynical population of 5 million Grimfrostians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 41.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The weak Grimfrostian economy, worth 138 billion Topazes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 27,729 Topazes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grimfrost's national animal is the Basilisk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

I couldn't resist...

The Nomadic Peoples of Garage Rockia is a fledgling, pleasant nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-working, democratic population of 5 million Garage Rockians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 18.2%.

The Garage Rockian economy, worth 216 billion Sexual Favors a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 43,320 Sexual Favors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is well under control. Garage Rockia's national animal is the Cassowary, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

What's with all you people and actually ruling your countries according to your political beliefs? Where's the fun in that?

NationStates | The Borderlands of Grimfrost

We're surprisingly healthy, with leading causes of death being 93% old age, 3% accident, and 4% getting lost in the wilderness

Heh, I love it when the name of my currency pops up in inappropriate places.

"We remain critically short of blood plasma and various organs," says Garage Rockia One hospital administrator Zeke Obama. "Especially hearts. A good heart is hard to find. But if we were allowed to pay for donations, we'd get more of them and could save more lives. Plus the donor takes home a few hundred Sexual Favors in compensation. Unless it's a post-mortem donation, of course. In that case we'd pay the family."
