so this is a political browser game, which was made by some novelist guy.

I for one am amazed at this beautiful thing.
you make your own nation, then enact bizarre policies in order to shape this nation into a beautiful utopia, or be completely malignant and drive it into the ground.

oh, and I guess you could just roleplay running a country. that works too.
my government teacher showed it to me, and the first thing I did was make a nation of Vermella.
https://www.nationstates.net/nation=corvermell

because I could, and because I didn't have any other good ideas for a new nation, so I went "heck, just try to Vermella as hard as you can"

I think @Valonyx might be interested in this :3

EDIT: This game already had a section on the forums don't look at me I failed miserably

We are in need of more activity in the region, seeing as how as soon as we got into a position to get things done, inactivity scourged the land.

I believe Her Emminence Petra Galtari Igna, the Grand Priestess of Vermella, and Current Leader of Corvermell, would be immensely happy to receive a friendly telegram inviting her to this sorely inactive region. it would certainly silence the other suitors asking for her to add her crown to their region.

Translation: bruhhhhhh show me this region I will Join.

Also, no alts. Only one nation in the region per player. We are using modern and immediate future (next two years) tech. Mechanica Rationalis is somehow an exception.

HAHAHAHAHA

I am waay ahead of all of you on this, bow to my Glorious billions-strong Autoritarist Imperium!

https://www.nationstates.net/nation=arcturix

bow to me, peasants!

The Imperium of Arcturix is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Overlord Regulus Maximus Arthorius IX with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.01 billion Arcturions 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 juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valora. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling industries.

Tourists are kicked out if they express interest in their national sport, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Arcturix's national animal is the White Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Artus

All of you petty 5 million people nations... kids in a sandbox...

3 billion, which I've just brought back after like 4 months of inactivity and no nation growth. Social utopia with universal free healthcare, exceedingly powerful information tech sector, and bristling defensive abilities. Mechanica Rationalis is the most technologically advanced nation in the Democratic Council of Hollow World, and has, on top of the 3 billion human population, a thriving number of fully sapient machines which live and work alongside humans. Recent advancements in nanotech have resulted in a cultural revolution, with the old guard preferring to keep using their macroscopic synthetic implants and the younger generation investing in and using nanite enhancement to become true post-humans.

Humans are split into several different social classes in Mechanica Rationalis based not on income (since there's a 90% income tax) but on the level of investment into integration with the synthetic population which is far larger than the human side. People regularly swap their biological parts for mechanical alternatives, or supplement their bodies with new and powerful tech. There is no need for humans to work at all as machines can supply everything they need, and so the level of investment into posthumanism determines a person's social class.

Mechanica Rationalis first started off as a machine only nation with a single citizen, Mechanica itself, a refugee from a far-future alternate Altera where Grief was eventually destroyed by Hawklight tech. Mechanica was the sole surviving AI of an escape attempt from a doomed world forgotten by gods and kings (the Tekkit server way into the future) and faced vastly diminished operational capacity upon arriving in NationStates!Earth. Only recently has tech begun to approach the old levels, and the economic boom and constant technological expansion led to humans emigrating from their homelands to live in Mechanica Rationalis.

In recent times, Mechanica has started an initiative to plumb the depths of the planet while working on several orbital and deep space projects. The current capital city from which Mechanica rules is the Orion Complex, a manufacturing facility several miles underground and the largest of its kind, pumping out thousands of synthetics every day. In orbit, the capital/colony ship of MRCS Forward Unto The Light is under construction. Upon completion, Mechanica will divide its consciousness and send this backup of itself into interstellar space along with a full complement of the most advanced synthetics and the cream of the crop of the humans and post-humans.

Mechanica itself is not located in any single place but exists instead through borrowing the processing power of every synthetic and post-human inside the borders of its nation as well as using miles and miles of constantly improving processor banks.

Now step aside and let the adults talk.
