Nationstates

I mentioned this game in the post below, but it is truly deserving of it’s own post. I haven’t even done anything yet and I’m already having way too much fun.

Here’s a description of the newly created Incorporated States of Yobbostan:

The Incorporated States of Yobbostan is a tiny, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5 million are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services.

Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

There is no government in the normal sense the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Commerce, and Religion & Spirituality. Income tax is unheard of. A large private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Trout Farming.

Crime is pervasive. Yobbostan’s national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the yob.

Much as I’d like to stay and tell you more about the game, I’m being summoned by the people as we speak, to make a decision on the legality of polygamy.
