Think you can run your own country?

I stumbled upon this little website called Nation States and it's kind of this little web-based game enabling you to create your own hypothetical but semi-realistic country. Every day, some new issue of the day crops up and you are called upon to deal with it in some way. But beware, the way you deal the issues will have consequences as to how well you do.

However, having said this - there's no winning or losing in this game. I've started this today, and thought it was kind of interesting.

I totally bagged New Gothenburg myself. (I liked the name of the original Swedish city, and thought - "why not?")

Hope you folks enjoy it. :)

I'd love to have go at this. Little energy left after looking after Miss Smeggy and sorting my pics out though.

It's not too frantic actually. I was on it for 10 minutes, sorted out my people and that was it. Looks like one of those visit once a day then get on with your own stuff things :splif:

You can, although I don't know how, create regions, which all your friends can join so you can 'see' each other, if you see what I mean.

I think it's somewhere on the FAQ somewhere, if not the site's own internal forum should have the information on it somewhere.

Feck. I've just allowed a pro-nazi march :eek: Mainly because I allow freedom of speech. Any shite though and I'll come down on em like a ton of bricks. I've got my phoney-baloney job to consider :rofl:

In answer to the original question.. 'Think you can run your own country'

The answer is NO. 2 reasons,,,

1) I live on an island
2) The elected cant even run our Island.

Least i'm honest! Not like the losers who got elected!
