NationStates

Postby Ken Carson » Tue Aug 28, 2018 6:07 am

Hey forum...

I have been playing a fun game off and on over the last 15 years or so at NationStates.net.

Essentially, you a presented hundreds of issues with generally pretty polarizing options. This influences your type of government, social and political freedom, and economy. Here is a link to my country: https://www.nationstates.net/nation=carsonapolis

Feel free to create a country as well. And if there enough interest, we can perhaps even create our own BucZone region. Enjoy!

So far I wish there were more diverse options to some of the questions (I understand that's part of the game), but I think it could be fun. Hopefully I won't completely forget about it in a few days.

It is supposed to be a caricature of course, and some of the headlines are hilarious.

“Republic of Zarnia's national animal is the Dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.”

Compare that to:
“Carsonapolis's national animal is the tico, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.”

I made a second nation and I've had much bigger issues that helped my economy go to thriving and political freedom to benchmark. I'm sticking with my original. I just wanted to see the diversity of issues. I think this could be pretty cool. Ken, how do you start regions or grow your population? Is it just a time thing?

That’s what happened because I wouldn’t subsidize the maintenance of a bunch of old ugly stone sculptures. I said break the statues and reuse the components

I started with having the government harvesting organs of the dead, deforestation so we can mine uranium, mandated military service, marriage equality, and marijuana legalization.

The Bearded Gentlefolkian economy, worth 204 billion Boneses of Zarnians a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining

Population growth occurs when you log in (once per day, I believe?). Issues come at regular intervals, maxing out at 5 stored.

I went ahead and made us a region. Please join up at https://www.nationstates.net/region=buczonia. Then join the world assembly. Together we can elect a leader of our region and vote in the UN style politics.
