Make one for Cutlander.  An alternative flag should I get bored of my current one.

Whipped this one up specially for you. Given that you're the Armed Republic of Cutlander, I thought it was fitting.

Also, Moody, if your country ever becomes a fascist dictatorship, consider using this:

I just made my own nation in that site, although it's still on the "alpha" stage to say the least. I'd be grateful if you could spare a flag for me too, Diego.

Since your national animal is the condor, you might like this one.



Dead link, tho

Weird, they're all showing up for me. I guess I can't link from NationStates. I have to do it via Imgur.

Voted for Kashmir. Long Live Longboatia!

Yeah... I might actually be with you on that. I accidentally did something with my nation, and now we no longer have a flat tax rate, plus the wealth gap has closed significantly. Even worse, the public sector has grown to about 5.6% of GDP. I don't know what I did wrong, but until I remedy it, Charles Longboat Jr. gets my endorsement.

Also, Kashmir, check out this flag. I designed it specifically for you, given that you have the word "boat" in your nation's name:



Longboatia, the miracle nation that somehow has both the second highest intelligence rating of our nations and by far the highest Primitiveness rating. Not sure how that's possible, but it's probably worth pointing out. It's also funny how Cutler's Compulsory Consumerist State spends a lot more on foreign aid than Civil Rights Lovefest of Longboatia does. (Let alone Koreoh's record-beating foreign aid spending, which kinda clashes with Danny's endorsement.)

I also added Raynor's country, Seihdar (kudos on that Australian Aboriginal flag, btw!) to both the main page, and all of the stats (which should be in their final version now, containing extra useful stuff like Public Transport, Tourism, Weaponization and Recreational Drug Use). Not sure if the poll should be updated to include it, though, as that might reset the votes already cast. Perhaps we ought to update that poll every month or so, to reflect both the new additions and any changes in our preferences?

I'm very happy with that weaponization chart. Also intelligence and average income... although my environment is in the shitter. Granted, most of Omakhandia was a desert wasteland to begin with, but I've managed to fuck it up beyond all recognition.

Despite Cutlander being the greatest nation, we do have a problem.

Despite the size of our black market, I must stress that this is only because our economic output as a whole is so large. Still, I'm not sure why my people need a black market; nothing's illegal in Omakhandia anyway.

So people can take organs from other people they've drugged?

Well, stealing is clearly illegal, but there aren't any controlled substances as far as I'm aware.

Legalising organ trade was the second or third decision ever made in my nation (first was accidentally banning elections.) I read last year how regulated legal organ trade works really well in Iran, and so decided there was no reason no to eliminate organ donation waiting lists in a similar fashion. Since private enterprise is still at 0%, I guessing it's so well regulated that it counts as government activity.

Also; I'm surprised that you are more concerned about this than the Intelligence levels.

We're supposed to be a Republic, but I just turned it into a dictatorship.  Just noticed that.  Think I chose the title because of the "Armed" part.  Anyway to change that?

Well, Turkmenistan is a republic that hasn't had elections for nearly 20 years up until 2013. If they weren't concerned by this contradiction, why should you? (Never mind; just spotted you already changing it to Rogue Nation.)

I think Kashmir-Longboatia may be due for a new flag. Tut, could you show me the spare flags you have sometime?









The top three are the ones I like the most from Mr. Ivanovich (although some color tweaking on the first and third would potentially look better). However., the link to the personalized flag isn't working for me. I'll try to work that out later.

I don't know how the former happened. It might have been determined by the factors I had at the beginning, but none of the issues I've addressed have done much to decrease said primitiveness.

As for foreign aid, the only thing I can say thus far is that my country is building up a strong foundation so that should the time come for us to give aid to countries we can do so with as little detriment to the public as possible. In theory this would also allow citizens to have the freedom to fund organizations that give aid to those countries too. I'm not sure how practical that approach is in real life but that's what simulators like this are for.

I'd prefer to keep Cutlander citizens stupid so that they won't rebel and overthrow me (although I don't think they can overthrow me).

And the Rogue Nation will stand!  We just had a huge landgrab from a neighboring country that was committing a mass genocide of its citizens.  Our population skyrocketed from 60 million to 149 million.
goodbye!
