I'm not sure if this can be considered a game or not, but it certainly is as fun as one.

http://www.nationstates.net/cgi-bin/index.cgi

Basically, you create a country, choose a name, flag, currency, national animal etc. and answer some questions about your politics. Then it will determine what the country looks like.

After that, every week-day (this can be changed in Settings) an issue appears, and you can choose how to solve it. If you don't like any of the options, you can simply dismiss the issue.

It isn't very time-consuming, so you should try it out.

Hmm? I think I'll make one... I'll call it "The Dictatorship of Evil Broccoli"
>:D


EDIT: Here ya go! xD

The Dictatorship of Evil Broccoli
"Bow down to the vegetable, or be forced to eat it!"

Civil Rights: Rare
Economy: Reasonable
Political Freedoms: Outlawed

Location: the South Pacific
The Dictatorship of Evil Broccoli is a tiny, pleasant nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 million are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 25%, but much higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail industries.

Crime is moderate. Evil Broccoli's national animal is the cow and its currency is the emblem.

I afread I made my own Region aready (not for op though).


The Republic of United-Solar-Systems

The Republic of United-Solar-Systems is a tiny, pleasant nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6 million are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Defence and Healthcare are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 14%. A large private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Arms Manufacturing.

Voting is voluntary and nudity is frowned upon. Crime is moderate. United-Solar-Systems's national animal is the gold panther and its currency is the gold.

The United States of Mysthillariums
"Keep 'yer hands off the squee!"
 

UN Category: Democratic Socialists
Civil Rights:
Average Economy:
Reasonable Political Freedoms:
Good
 
Location: Outpost world
The United States of Mysthillariums is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Squee population. Its hard-nosed population of 6 million are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 31%, but much higher for the wealthy. A very small private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Voting is voluntary. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Mysthillariums's national animal is the Squee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the ankh.

Mysthillariums is ranked 84,711th in the world for Most Corrupt Governments.

My humble nation  :P

Location: Outpost world
 
The Confederacy of Anne-Sophie Mutter is a large, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate, cynical population of 23 million are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Religion & Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 28%, but much higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining.

Military spending recently hit a new high, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been recorded, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Anne-Sophie Mutter's national animal is the arabian horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the beads.

Anne-Sophie Mutter is ranked 1st in the region and 39,408th in the world for Most Corrupt Governments.

The Rogue Nation of Squirly wrath
"Worship me, or I'll stab your eyes till you bleed."
 

UN Category: Corrupt Dictatorship
Civil Rights:
Below Average Economy:
Struggling Political Freedoms:
Few
 
Location: The Planet of the Squirls
The Rogue Nation of Squirly wrath is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its absence of drug laws. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 million are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 53%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Trout Farming.

Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Squirly wrath's national animal is the squirl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the foam.

Maybe we could set up our own UN. Have it be like a giant Confederation. and we would all be "States" in that Confederacy. Every week we would vote for a new country for "president". Just a thought.

The Holy Empire of Ranuk is a small, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service. Its quiet, industrious population of 8 million are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Commerce, and Religion & Spirituality.

Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Door-to-door Insurance Sales.

Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Ranuk's national animal is the ranuki cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the ranuki.

The Nomadic Peoples of The Domination of xfir
"Whatever it is, it's our neighbor's fault."

UN Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy
Civil Rights: Very Good    
Economy: Reasonable    
Political Freedoms: Below Average
Location: Outpost world

The Nomadic Peoples of The Domination of xfir is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its burgeoning lesser infernal population. Its compassionate population of 5 million have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Social Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 27%, but much higher for the wealthy. A small but healthy private sector is led by the Cheese Exports industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.

Crime is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Domination of xfir's national animal is the lesser infernal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the lesser rock.

The Dominion of Crackers and Cheese
"All who stand in our way, get eaten in a cheese burger"
 

UN Category: Civil Rights Lovefest
Civil Rights:
Superb Economy:
Strong Political Freedoms:
Superb
 
Location: Outpost world

The Dominion of Crackers and Cheese is a tiny, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5 million hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Education and Healthcare are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 12%. A small but healthy private sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Beef-Based Agriculture.

Crime is a problem. Crackers and Cheese's national animal is the guinea pig and its currency is the cheddar block.

I thought that you just might find this issue humorous


Outpost 2 Decides:
Blights on the Dinner Table?

The Issue
In a bid to provide a new revenue stream for Outpost 2's Beef-Based Agriculture industry, it has been suggested that blights could be added to the menu.

The Debate
"The fact is, the blight population is out of control," says Beef-Based Agriculture spokesperson Abraham Nagasawa. "We have to do something about them anyway, so why not market them as tasty snacks? We could have blight kebabs, blight pies, blight-on-a-sticks--the possibilities are endless! Let's not pass up this golden opportunity to provide a feast, if you will, for our economy."
[Accept]


"I agree that something needs to be done about blight over-population," says random passer-by Falala Licorish, "but eating them? That's kind of gross. Let's just shoot the ones we have to and shovel their bodies into ditches like normal."
[Accept]


"I am shocked and appalled!" declared SPCA President Faith Christmas. "If anyone needs to be culled, it's us humans. The blights were here first, remember? We need to take this as a sign to get our industry--agriculture in particular--to back off. The blight is part of what makes Outpost 2 a great nation!"
[Accept]

How stupid are those people that came up with the issues ??  read this:
(note: Ranuki is my currency)

"We remain critically short of blood plasma and various organs," says Ranuk One hospital administrator Konrad Barry. "Especially hearts. A good heart is hard to find. But if we were allowed to pay for donations, we'd get more of them and could save more lives. Plus the donor takes home a few hundred ranukis in compensation.

Well, i guess they'll be walking home -without a heart- just counting their newly earned money !   :heh:
