The Happiest Citizens in Anarchy
A recent survey attempted to measure the average happiness of citizens in various nations. These results should be treated with caution, however, as results tend to fluctuate from day to day.
As a region, Anarchy is ranked 1,120th in the world for Happiest Citizens.

Not sure that's entirely true. At least on the Paul side of extremity (if the implications of the name of the "index" used to measure extremity hold), religious conservatives and "Tea Party" types strongly venerate at least the idea of political violence (via the Revolutionary/Minuteman image).
We haven't noticed a particular dearth of such options. At least, creating a highly cultured crime free Anarchy wasn't that hard...
Yup, and since those where the rules I went for a iron fist revolutionary organization... but then that being economically feasable was also too much to ask...
If we're going down that route, then by the same token Leftists and "anarchist" types strongly venerate at least the idea of political violence (via the Revolutionary/Black Bloc image)...
Which also has an imploded economy and whose population "live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs."
The Singular Multitude was classified as a "Civil Rights Lovefest" at its founding. Getting a single step up to "Anarchy" was just a matter of fine-tuning. Granted, it took a while, but We feel that was mostly due to the rate at which the necessary issues appeared in Our queue, as opposed to some built-in bias.
The Multitude is wholly unconcerned with its "Imploded" economy. The Economy category does not measure the important moral/ethical factor, but measures merely the concentration of wealth.
The Multitude is classified as an "Anarchy," and therefore exhibits the highest levels of economic freedom, by definition, per NationStates' internal mechanics. If, in the state of economic freedom, the capitalist wealth generating and centralizing machinery fails to function (or, "Imploded") then Mission Accomplished.
At any rate, the WA recognizes Us as being among the happiest, healthiest, and most long-lived in the world -- and highly educationally, culturally, and technologically developed to boot.
We feel this would be a fair statement, actually. The Multitude has never been particularly impressed with Revolutionary, Illegalist, or similar viewpoints. Although, in specific regards to the meaning of the "extremist" index, We have a difficult time associating Nader with revolution or violence.
We could, of course, engage in a protracted pin-head-dance over the difference between self-defense and violence.
Addressed below. Summary: feature, not bug.
Our biker gangs are among the most educated, cultured, and nattily dressed in the world.

The Singular Multitude wishes to solicit opinions on the current resolution proposal "Civilian Aircraft Accord" (page=UN_view_proposal/id=john_turner_1441253254). We are concerned by the following provision:
Forbids member nations from taking military action against civilian aircraft without first warning that aircraft and permitting that aircraft to comply with instructions;
Members of the Multitude have expressed concerns that this provision may actually serve to legitimize military action against civilians, which We could normally classify as a war crime, especially considering that the requirements for doing so are apparently so vague and minimal. Under what circumstances are such an attack justified? What constitutes a "warning?" How long must an attack be delayed in order to allow compliance? What constitutes "compliance" for that matter?
The Multitude assumes that the author of the proposal has certain circumstances in mind (for example, when hijackers take over an aircraft with the intention of using it as a weapon through an intentional crash), but We are not sure that such a sweeping power to engage military force against civilians under minimal conditions, as permitted by the proposal, is justified by such a rare event. Even if justified, it still raises the specter of using military forces in what is, essentially, a civilian law enforcement capacity.
Was it allowed to down civilian aircraft with innocent people before this?
The more pertinent question is whether it should be allowed to down civilian aircraft with innocents aboard merely because the state taking the action swears they issued a "warning" and waited a bit first.
Or, to put it another way, what previous resolutions, laws, or traditions require is largely irrelevant because the present proposed resolution does permit militaries to down civilian aircraft, and the only requirements to justify doing so appear to be 1) squawk the radio and 2) wait a moment. If a previous resolution already covers the situations and circumstances under which civilian aircraft become legitimate targets, then the proposed resolution bears only unnecessary repetition and the Multitude will direct its attention to examining established law. But, if no such established law exists, the proposed resolution effectively declares open season on civilian aircraft, because of its minimal controls and requirements.
Unless we are truly expected to believe that states and their militaries can adequately see to the rights and liberties of civilians on their own...
In short, the proposed resolution has built into it the covert assumption that engagement of civilians by military forces is justifiable in some circumstances. The Multitude challenges this assumption and demands that the logic behind it be submitted to the light of intense scrutiny such an assumption requires. It is not enough that a military force "warn" and then be free to react according to its own assessment of "compliance." Such is mere coercion; anything that can be rightly called ethics or justice demands more.
