Parallels an be drawn, sure, but fundamentally Psychotic Dictatorships (L,L,L) are all about repressing people, while Anarchies (H,H,H) are all about liberating people. I would rather live in an Anarchy than a Psychotic Dictatorship any day of the week!


In a NationStates "Anarchy", sure. In most cases, they don't seem to actually involve cycle gangs. If you're talking about real anarchy, the choice is not so clear, because life in a real anarchy is likely to be brutish and short, whereas if you keep your head down you might do OK in a Psychotic Dictatorship. In some sense, it's a moot question though. Anarchy is not stable, and decays into dictatorship of some kind, perhaps more likely corrupt than psychotic.

Of course. For game-playing purposes, an Anarchy is just another form of government with its own agendas. A RL Anarchy is a completely different animal. The only a RL Anarchy would fail to reorganize higher than the warlord level if some outside power is keeping them from uniting, say, an occupying army.

New issue, $567:

The Issue

Your Minister for the Treasury, Allen Redbridge, has come under fire as market analysts and journalists complain that his predictions about the future of Dr George’s economy are vague to the point of uselessness. His detractors are dubbing his avoidance of clear statements ‘Syntax Destruction’: the presentation of extremely long and obfuscated reports that have little real content.

The Debate

“I shouldn’t have to spend hours poring over reams of government documents for just one story!” complains Michelle Bush, reporter for the philosophical Enquirer, slamming a large stack of papers onto your desk. “Look at this! One thousand nine hundred eighty-four pages! What Minister Redbridge is doing is dishonest and despicable. You need to force him and those like him to use plain language and get to the point, so that the common people of Dr George will be able decipher what’s going on in the government.”

Accept

“It has been demonstrated,” Minister Allen Redbridge replies during an interview, “that markets affect an unexpected multitude of industries at even the slightest suspicion of an impending perturbation. Thus, it behooves those knowledgeable in its idiosyncrasies to uphold their responsibilities in defending such precipitous gateways to knowledge, and acting in such a manner of least reaction, to satisfy their due diligence to avoid creating a condition which could potentially upset the precarious balance between bears and bulls, be they platitudes, or omissions. Indeed, one who acts in contravention to the aforementioned manner also acts against their own best interests, and thereby undermines status as well as dispels their cloak of competence. Such a transgressor shall be dismissed by the knowledgeable majority, of course, thus not necessitating any external provocation.”

Accept

“Spoken or written words, delivered on matters of policy by person or persons within the government, hereafter referred to as a government commentary, constitute a legal statement,” explains prominent lawyer Sarah de Vries. “It is my professional opinion that a government commentary should use only legal terminology to ensure clarity of meaning.”

Congrats to Left-Wing Hippiestan for being in the world top 100 Largest Welfare Programs. Czechostan didn't miss it by much, either

What do you want to know?
Sometimes we have deep philosophical discussions.
Sometimes we discuss politics.
Sometimes we talk about issues and their results.
Sometimes we're very quiet.
Sometimes random people wander through with offerings of food.

Congrats to Czechostan for being in the world top 100 Most Advanced Public Transport!

Welcome to Philosophy 115, Cotne Islands! VQoM gave you a good overview of what we're about as a region, but I suspect you're asking more about game-playing in general. A good introduction to that is found when you click the question mark hyperlink on the upper left sidebar. Read that through, then you'll be prepared to ask us more specific questions and we'll be able to give you more helpful answers.
