Nationstates

Post  Sahrimnir on Tue May 15, 2012 4:44 am

Nationstates is a browser game where you run your own country. I used to play it a few years ago, but then kind of forgot about it until today when I suddenly decided to create a new country. I decided to run it as a Tentaklist theocracy.

Right now the glorious nation of Tentaklia is mostly in the default state, but I think that by tomorrow you'll start to see some changes.

You should try it out. It's quite fun. If there are a few us, we could create our own region to collect our nations in.

*Blinks* I posted something about this in the Avalanchia thread like... Last week

Requiem wrote:As a side note relavent here. I've been a part of a Website called Nationstates for quite a while now, a few years anyway, before I came here actually. It's a Nation building site where everybody creates their own well.. Nation. Pretty easy to run. Text based, mostly autonomous. Each day you recieve a certain number of issues (One or two depending on your preference). These can range from deciding what people in your nation recieve water during a drought, down to deciding whether or not to make cheese illegal. There are usually 2-5 options available, with 3 being the primary number of options. Each option effects a great deal of things, ranging from your average income tax rate, to your economy, civil and political rights, down to your nations government type (I'm a Left Leaning College State). It also calculates the average way people die which can be from old age, to war, to random acts of god. Beyond that, there's a NationStates Calculator that gives you specific details into the budget runnings of your nation. You can name your own currency, national animal, make your own flag, and if you get the question, pick your national religion (Which you can change at any point after that). That is of course, just the basics of the website, the more interesting parts are when you become active in the WA (World Assembly). You can draft proposals, vote in new laws that effect all WA Nations. Also, while we already have a forum we're active on, the option to make a full regional forum is usually a good fun thing. I used to belong to The Kingdom of Middle Earth a long long time ago.

Anyway, if you're interested in checking it out, go to http://www.nationstates.net, join up, make a nation, and then join Avalanchia here, http://www.nationstates.net/region=avalanchia

Oh man, I used to play this game years ago. From what I remember I had 100% science, military might and environment and -100% political freedom. I was an awesome dictator. Also I made it legal to shoot cyclists, hee.

I should restart my nation! Phoenixia shall rise again!

The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.
*Blinks*How do you have a 100% income tax rate and a private sector? If the government owns all of the wealth, there is no wealth left for the people to create or even participate in private industry.

Also, next time I find freetime, starting a socialist republic, aww yea. Or maybe an anarchy state, we'll see where whim takes me.

I accidentally made social democrats instead. Oh well. I probably should have been more authoritarian but I don't know if this game will let me simulate a centrally planned economy and didn't want to end up being socially oppressive.

I was checking through the NS forums and discovered a new beta feature.

Essentially, it is putting Factbooks on your nation page. The aim is to give good Factbooks greater prominence; currently, I feel we have some amazing work in this forum that goes unseen by the majority of our community.

To test it out, append "/detail=factbook" to a nation page URL. On your own nation, this will invite you to create a new factbook entry, in one of various categories.

I've added the history of Tentaklia and a little description of the national religion.

You can't have an average of 100% where some people are taxed under 100%, because that would imply that some people are being taxed over 100% of their income, which is impossible. It's probably just the way the site organizes this information, without checking for contradictions.

Turns out my old nation still exists but I can't reactivate it since I don't think the email I created it with exists, sigh. So I've made a new version, The Empire of Phoenixiah! Eh, close enough Razz

Already banned elections and the far right. I'm as liberal as owt, but you're not ousting me from power thank you very much!

I love how much more detailed this game has got since I last played it.

I will be joining very shortly, and when I do I will be creating the schizophrenic nation!

by that, I mean I will be everything! My people will have no idea what to expect. One moment I am giving money to the poor, next I am shooting people in the streets because I don't like them....Including poor people. ^_^

My nation has been reclassified into a Corrupt Dictatorship because I increased police numbers and raised taxes on the rich :< Weirdly for saying it's a dictatorship my citizen's civil liberties are very high. It's probably because I took away their right to vote, ahem.

Also judging by the last issue I got I'm one of the few nations in Avalanchia that's legalised euthanasia. Dammit guys, now I'm getting all your death tourists! Stop turning me into Switzerland!

Right now I'm torn between giving my people more political freedom or shooting them for suggesting it...

If I'm not mistaken, Tentaklia has also legalised euthanasia.

I simply dismissed that issue. I felt the status quo was working.
