Corruption rates, I believe.
I've often wondered about population-related issues too. My feeling is that since population is used as a stand-in for nation age (and is also used to unlock features in game), it wouldn't be affected by any issues. I've never actually gone and tested this hypothesis though...
I'm in top 99% for corruption...
We agree. We have voted against many, many WA bills on the basis of overreaching legislation or demonstrable infringement on any basic idea of national sovereignty. Even in cases where we agree with the jist of what the bill is trying to achieve, and even have similar domestic policies in place, we often vote against purely on the basis that we feel we have no place telling other nations how to govern, providing that governance doesn't threaten us in some catastrophic way.
In our view, it's a common problem.

Libertanland's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
Libertanland is ranked 155,745th in the world and 606th in NationStates for Longest Average Lifespans, with 39.58 Years.
An ongoing theory I've had is that some of the very random dips in certain statistics aren't due to actions you've taken, but are part of the game's code, used to ensure that the entire world doesn't grow too advanced and that the majority of people are classified as "average."
Mikeswill voted against the World Assembly Resolution "Protection of Partially Born".
