Sals Realm Nationstates

Recommended Posts

I've made a new thread as the old one died (again!)

 

Nationstates is a free RPG where you are the ruler of your own country.

Every day you get one or more "issues" where you will need to make a decision on the future of your country.

 

Here is an example:

 

The Issue

 

The death of 108 year old Supreme Court Justice Gregory Spirit has created an opening on the bench. Below are the possible nominees.

The Debate

 

1. Thomas King, the Former CEO of Manfigurut Products, says "I have long sat by and watched our government vicously attack the big businesses in this country. The government has no right to control businesses and I will adopt that position in all of my judgements."

[Accept]

 

2. Reverend Jazz Chicago is nominee #2. The Reverend says "I am sick and tired of the liberals in this country ruining our family values. Every day they assault our basic sense of decency. You must vote for me to keep our families safe. Think of the children!"

[Accept]

 

3. Gay Activist and former Senator Charles King is nominee #3. "Our people aren't happy, we need more freedom, we need more civil rights. We must keep the government out of the bedroom. We must respect peoples right to privacy and remember that personal relations are just that, personal."

[Accept]

 

4. Environmental Activist Roxanne Christmas argues, "Our government has been constantly violating Mother Earth and her rights, all our politicians talk about are civil rights, civil rights this, civil rights that, blah blah blah, we aren't important, what is important is the Earth!"

[Accept]

 

5. The last nominee is the retired Five Star General Faith O'Bannon. "We are ridiculed throughout the international community for our low quality weaponry, our police and military numbers are not sufficient. Our military must be protected from both constitutional and civilian oversight. They should be given money, and a free hand."

[Accept]

 

6. Finally, a tomato flies by your head flung by an angry protester. "We want to elect our own judges! This is a democracy! More power to the people! We don't want a lapdog! Separation of Powers! Get the government out of the judicial system!" He chucks another tomato at you before security escorts him out of your private office.

[Accept]

 

Each issue will change your nation in some way, depending on your choice. The things it could affect are Civil Rights, Political Freedoms and your Economy. It could raise taxes, augment your military budget, and many more.

Each country falls into a category which describes your government, for example a Psychotic Dictatorship (with all freedoms being supressed), an Inoffensive Centrist Democracy (all freedoms medium) or even an Anarchy (with all freedoms being extremly high). To find a complete list click here.

When you join you will land up in the Pacific, which is the largest region of the game. Join us in our region, Sals Realm! To do so search for it in the world overview and click on "Move to this region".

 

You can also join the UN and vote on the resolutions (which are like an issue which counts in all UN member nations). Each region has it's own UN delegate which is elected by the UN nations in the region. If you want to give a nation your support you can endorse it, which is like a vote. Currently we don't have a UN delegate.

Regional Anthem by Lynnworth:

 

 

Time for Life, Time for Working,

Time for government, Time for Smirking,

But when you are down and you need a friend,

We are here to help you mend,

 

Sal's, Sal's Realm,

Mighty Sal's Realm,

We set clear targets and buy out the markets,

Mighty Sal's Realm.

 

From Ministers to ruffians,

Together we unite,

For, together, we know we'll find,

The peace to sleep tonight.

 

Oh, Sal's Realm,

Glourious is the Realm,

We kill invaders, Stamp out the haters,

Mighty Sal's Realm.

 

And so the song is done,

But life is just begun,

Time for joy, Time for winning,

Time for despair, Time for singing,

 

Sal's, Sal's Realm,

Mighty Sal's Realm,

I can't think of anything witty, this'll be over in a jiffy,

We love the Realm!

What's there to do? Not much really. Just settle day to day issues given by weirdos and loons. It's something to do and a daily source of amusement for me.

Hmm.. A religious leader wants me to ban the Harry Potter books on account of summoning devils. And yet, just a few days ago I condemned religion and made it clear that my government is entirely atheist.

 

Also I like Harry Potter books :D

The Republic of Gonzyy is a fledgling, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its strong anti-business politics. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5 million love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

 

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass -- juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 38%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Retail.

 

Crime is relatively low. Gonzyy's national animal is the Rock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Coin.

The Dictatorship of Chuck of Norris is a massive, safe nation, ruled by David Tollefson with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.57 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, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Healthcare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elmstead Market. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

 

Speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, Harry Potter books are banned, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Chuck of Norris's national animal is the chuck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the norris bill.

 

:D
