I found this today, in case anyone was wondering what the various nation categories actually mean.
Aww; my government type is so common. :(
Oh well; I've been in the very middle for just about the entire time, so why change now?
I think I'd like to have the title "Civil Rights Lovefest" or "Benevolent Dictatorship" haha.
Right now I'm a New York Times Democracy. I at least need to get up to the next tier of personal freedom. Economic and political freedoms aren't as important to me, personally, as civil rights & liberties.
I had school all day, just got home...so here are THE RESULTS OF OUR DO-GOODING (DO-BADING? WHAT AM I EVEN TALKING ABOUT!?)!

I love the second issue. People do amazing things.
1 for all questions.
I was torn the most on Q3. I've had that issue before and I think I just dismissed it.
Anymore votes before I put in 1 for all the options?
2 for all questions
Q1-Eh I'm curious to see what option 2 does
Ok, 1,2,1 it is.
Q1 - 1
Q2 - 2
Q3 - 3
Wait, am I too late for this round of voting?
I think so?
I got a issue about measurement system. One wanted to go over to the metric system (yay!), one wanted to keep teh old, and the third was high, I think, so for this round I'll ignore him.
Anyway, I was going to take the first option, when I read option two;
Where would we be without our attoparsecs, hogsheads, or shakes of a Alpaca's tail?
Shakes. Of a Aplaca's tail. Shaky tails. Alpaca's shaky tail.
Imgur wasn't working earlier. I will put up the new issues in the morning. :D
Or, tonight after I get out of school. ;D

6 hours ago: Following new legislation in NoitaN sdrawkcaB tsetaerG, refugees from other nations are flocking to NoitaN sdrawkcaB tsetaerG's border.
18 hours ago: Following new legislation in NoitaN sdrawkcaB tsetaerG, immigrant herding has become a national pastime
There's something hilariously wrong with this picture. XD
It sounds so... cozy. Just imagining a fun family trip with camping and herding the immigrants. "It's a fun activity for the kids!"
But then again, I haven't googled 'pastime', so it could mean something completely different from what I think.
No, that's exactly what it is. Like baseball is considered 'America's pastime'.
A monstrous debate between pro-life and pro-choice groups has erupted after a high-profile case of a pregnant woman aborting her foetus because she 'didn't feel like it' hit the tabloids.
Aaron Jones, lawyer for the woman known only as Miss X, says, "It is Miss X's right to choose! It's her body; she can do whatever she wants with it. In the interest of women's rights, abortion MUST be legal throughout the country!"
"I most vehemently disagree," says Jamil Steele, a pro-life activist. "I'm all for women's rights in general, but what about the child? Does it have no rights either? Abortion is totally immoral and I insist that it be outlawed except in cases of rape, or when the mother's life is in danger."
"You're not going far enough! Abortion is murder!" shouts Reverend Brian Rubin, waving a placard with a picture of a foetus on it. "God decides which babies live and which will die, not us! The government must maintain a stern anti-abortion stance to preserve the morality of Wisbechania!"
"Abortion has to be legal if we're going to last as a nation," says Roxanne Woolf, President of the Society of Bitter Old People. "Have you ever thought that with Wisbechania's growing population of 367 million, we soon aren't going to be able to squeeze any more people within our borders? If we use abortion to control the population, we'll make great savings and can spend the money elsewhere. One child per family should just about do it I think. Extraneous ones can be sold to other countries."
Wait - who? What?
And it only gets weirder. XD
Sometimes much, much weirder on complete accident.
Like scientists in my country recently cloned the extinct feather-bellied pigeon. What sort of weird-ass pigeons were my national animal before that?
Answer: The kind that can apparently KILL LIVESTOCK, according to today's issue.
A peculiar confederacy of small-government advocates, regular attendees at Starsfall's annual Medieval Faire, and the super rich have demanded that the government grant estates and confer titles of nobility upon certain influential persons.
"I humbly submit myself for Duke of Star's Rest," says multi-billionaire Colin Silk. "Not only would it be an apt reward for my contributions to Starsfall, but the citizens who become landed serfs on my estate would work harder than they ever have in all their lives." Adds small-government advocate Chris Laine, "Government would at last return to the local level, close to the people and the land to which they would be bound for life."
"I can't believe I'm hearing this," exclaims noted civil rights advocate Sue-Ann Chicago. "Those who are behind this espouse a system that grants inordinate amounts of institutional power to the rich and ensures that no one will be able to climb the social ladder. Everyone in society must be granted an equal opportunity to succeed or fail. Say 'no' to a nobility!"
"I think both of the other parties are taking this issue to the extreme," argues a learned elderly gentleman resting on a park bench. "All that's being advocated is giving those who have contributed to their nation a ceremonial title and a bit of land. Besides," he adds, "the government can tax their estate."
"A good day to thee, milord," counters May Lee, an amateur Medieval Faire actor dressed in period costume, "I would suggest that thou hasten thyself to spectate at the jousting competition this forenoon. Aye, quite a bout we have arrayed for thee this day. However, the whole affair could be much grander if only we received a few more gold crownes from the government. Aye, 'twould be a grand tourney of knightly skill and courage indeed!"
I think I feel compelled to go with 4, really. Just for the non sequitur-ness of it.
I have gotten that issue for both of my nations and I STILL can't figure out what the hell the fourth option has to do with anything.
Speaking of this LP, Brokenslovakia has ceased existing. So I guess the LP's dead?
Well, I guess it could always be revived, but...very few nations return once they fall into the abyss.
