Welcome to the party. It was big about a month ago, but I let my nation die since I was getting around to repeat questions. It was fun for a while though.

I take issue with our characterization as a "Inoffensive Centrist Democracy."

Everyone knows we are offensive.

We need to work harder on this.

KhanFire's Fault


Mine:

The Federation of Gamba Kufu is a huge, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 472 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 of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Defence and Commerce are secondary priorities. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining industries.

Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, and armed police units patrol the roads late at night. Crime is crippling. Gamba Kufu's national animal is the Gopher, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Potato Chip.

Ah, I didn't really get what he was saying first time around - so is "NationStates.net" HIS site? Or did he start the idea of "ARFCOM" on it?

All I can say is - that's proof of a LOT of time on some people's hands.

A LOT.

Wow.
