Gay Regional Message Board
It is NOT impossible to have a liberal welfare state, a good economy, and a green environment--and zero taxes! Many of my high freedom nations have all of these; with careful answering, a consistent vision, and a little luck, you can do the same thing. Your Economy will tend to rise so long as you don't consistently hold it down (chiefly by over-regulating it). The better your economy is, the lower your taxes will go, as they need to take a smaller and smaller portion of a bigger and bigger pie to maintain the same funding. You'll need to keep track, at least informally, of which issues raise taxes and which issues lower taxes. When you get an issue obviously designed to cut taxes, you should usually choose it, even if you already have a 0% tax rate, in order to give you the opportunity to fund things while still having a zero tax rate. Most of my high freedom states have free college, a national healthcare service, a minimum wage, and other things.
To raise Civil Rights and Political Freedoms, you need to empower your citizens to disagree with you or usual standards of behaviour. If people want to walk around buck naked, let them. If pirate radio stations want to criticize the government, let them. I hope it goes without saying that most of us here will allow gay marriages. Allow a woman the right to have an abortion. Don't have a secret police or otherwise act in an opaque or dictatorial manner. Unless you're trying to achieve 100 in CRs or PFs, you probably don't need to formally keep a record of which issues do what. MOST of the time, the dilemma gives you clues as to what the high freedom option is. Beware issues that pit the freedoms of one group against another; for instance, women should have the right to enter abortion clinics unmolested, but protesters should have the right to protest, too. If you favour either of these groups, your freedoms will go lower, so dismiss the issue.
I you have questions on a specific issue, TG me before you answer it.
This nation largely reflects the things I have been talking about above, since I have been answering issues for it approaching 5.5 years out of the last 7 or so, back to January of 2010. Since I am term-limited from running for WAD-Founder for another year, the next person may well take this nation in different directions. BearNation is an even better example, since he has been exclusively mine from the beginning (actually, he was my very first nation)!
New issue, #569:
FeAR, the Federation of Automobile Racing, has suggested to you that BearNation would be a great site for a World Championship F1 Grand Prix circuit. The only problem is that you don’t have a racetrack built.
Alexis Lefévre, head of the Grand Prix governing body, suggests the construction of a new top end racing facility in largely uninhabited swampland in the east of your nation. “It’ll be a boost to tourism and the broader economy in BearNation, and it’ll bring this whole dreary swampland area to life!” He stubs out his cigar on a nearby swamp frog, to emphasise his point. “Now, if you have the time, I have some contracts for you to consider with regards to construction, event management, and security firms, all with reputable, established companies and firms that I can vouch for personally...”
“I don’t see why we need an expensive new track wasting taxpayer money when we’ve already got a great ring road in New Bear City,” says Mayor Renee True, well-known to be a die-hard racing fan. “The city has a vibrant atmosphere and stunning architecture, compared to the blandness and soullessness of modern autodromes. You know where your heart lies: bring this event to the capital!”
“Grand Prix racing is completely unrelated to what happens with road cars,” argues Ruri Hoshino, CEO of Kadai Engineering Automotive Firm Incorporated, “but sports car racing drives forward automotive technology. Say no to the Grand Prix, and instead let the World Sports Prototype Championship hold round the clock endurance races at a stadium that we’ll happily foot the bill for. All you need to do is repeal some crazy noise and air pollution laws. Sure, it may not be as glamorous, but it’ll let us show off our wares and will encourage engineering innovation.”
“Why are these petrolheads so obsessed with auto racing anyway?” asks migraine-suffering riding enthusiast Elaine Pavlov, from the back of a stallion that has just evacuated manure onto the pavement. “It’s just noise, smelly fumes and testosterone! Ban motor racing, and invest that pot of money into equestrianism. It’s a genteel racing event for a civilised society.” Her horse glares at you threateningly, as if to support the argument.
I see you're familiar with us.
Us, too, but we managed.
We'll be taking it down as soon as the embassy is finished. We'll move the tent into the construction zone, though. Thanks for the warning. Not even hunny?
Today I was walking the streets and all of a sudden around 50 people laid on the ground. Okay, so it's probably just another protest, I thought. Then they start doing push-ups in the middle of the street lmao.
Streaming no man's sky. Its probably boring to watch tbh.
Every review says it's terrible
I like it cause it's relaxing
It's very zen like, and there are some beautiful sights... and occasional odd looking creature :p
I personally like it, but it's not a game for everyone. If action games are the only thing you play, you'll probably not like it. It's an exploration game with small hints of a story. And as Otis-T says, it's very relaxing.
