....and by now I got 2 nations so far, with one being: https://www.nationstates.net/nation=shongbao
The Commonwealth of Shongbao is a fledgling, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6 million Shongbaoans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 32.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The developing Shongbaoan economy, worth 222 billion Choshoes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,154 Choshoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shongbao's national animal is the mountain dragon , which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
If you have a look at the trends, it is shocking:https://www.nationstates.net/nation=shongbao/detail=trend
-How I got there?
Well, I guess it was an incident at first, but now I begin to like it.
The second one: https://www.nationstates.net/nation=eastern_elizabethia
The Confederacy of Eastern Elizabethia is a fledgling, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5 million Eastern Elizabethians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 59.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The weak Eastern Elizabethian economy, worth 137 billion Nueva Lunas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. Average income is 27,418 Nueva Lunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, a government program is underway to revitalize Eastern Elizabethia's beaches, and diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern Elizabethia's national animal is the silver cockatoo.
Funny how I got there. I tried to make it different to Shongbao.
Now it seems to be run by hippies.
Whilst the first one is run by a psychotic dictator.
