    Default NationStates

    Ok, so I found this online "game"... you make up your own country using a prexisting outline... answer a few questions to set up your "base" country, and every once in a while, you answer "issues" put forth to you, the government. Your choices can either build or demolish the nation. Yuo can be a capitalist dog, or a Commie dick-tater. Or anything in between.

    If you want to know (roughly) what the world would be like if you ran it, try starting with a little cyber nation and see if you can keep it from running into the financial ground, revolutions from overrunning your straw hut, or the political prisons from filling up with your Ex-Wives.

    Its still there... First you have to create your own nation, and then move your nation to the Rhinoland region.

    Heres the nation I created specifically for Rhinoland (I have 2 others.. one I run halfway seriously, the other I cruelly crush the populace) http://www.nationstates.net/cgi-bin/.../nation=tiwari

    I basically just made it up, and clicked the multiple choices during set up randomly so that there was a little more realism (I didnt start with a nation set to my liking, I now have to "fix it")

    I gotta say, Im a bit disappointed at the lack of interest... Given all the politcal opinion that tends to fly around here, I thought youd all jump at the chance to show us what the world would be like if you ran it

    funny you should bring this thread up again, i was thinking of it during the recent political melee'. time is precious during our days of long light, and i spend enough time on the 'puter as it is, but the idea of running my on nation has been in the back of my mind for a while...
    not chicken, just dont ( currently) have time for another preoccupation [img]/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]
    btw sgathak, i have a suspicion you are a pretty interesting guy...

    Baja Oregon moved to the Rhinoland region this afternoon. Baja Oregon is a libertarian state, and open to business.
