My last WA nation answered virtually no issues. It went rapidly to Left-Wing Utopia, which was no surprise to me.

My previous WA nation also answered virtually no issues. It became an Anarchy, which surprised me greatly, and which I tracked down to the effect of a very strong pro-Free Trade resolution during its period of activity. I basically consider that an anomaly. Its repeal probably contributed to my next nation's descent (oh wait, this is P115, I mean ascent) into Left-Wing Utopia.

(I do not presently have a WA nation. I have reached the conclusion that it is very difficult to have any kind of fun with the WA.)

This article is from 3+ years ago, but I still found it an interesting read.

It takes on these 3 arguments:
1. Free market capitalism is the greatest engine of economic growth in human history
2. Private companies are inherently more efficient than government because there is a profit motive
3. The rich need tax cuts to be encouraged to spend and create economic growth during times of recession
4. The US has the highest standard of living in the world and everyone wants to be American
5. America is a capitalist economy

I took a similar test over at when I was relatively new to NS.

I had scored as a “Cosmopolitan Social Democrat” with the following results:
Cosmopolitan/Nationalistic: -6%
Secular/Fundamentalist: -70%
Visionary/Reactionary: -38%
Anarchist/Authoritarian: -37%
Communistic/Capitalistic: -29%
Pacifist/Militaristic: -5%
Ecological/Anthropocentric: +8%

I just retook it and was still a “Cosmopolitan Social Democrat” with rather similar results:
Cosmopolitan/Nationalistic: -18%
Secular/Fundamentalist: -50%
Visionary/Reactionary: -46%
Anarchist/Authoritarian: -39%
Communistic/Capitalistic: -17%
Pacifist/Militaristic: -20%
Ecological/Anthropocentric: -2%

Test result
You are Cosmopolitan Social Democrat. 9 percent of the test participators are in the same category and 16 percent are more extremist than you.

Cosmopolitan/Nationalistic: -31%
Secular/Fundamentalist: -36%
Visionary/Reactionary: -37%
Anarchist/Authoritarian: -46%
Communistic/Capitalistic: -15%
Pacifist/Militaristic: -30%
Ecological/Anthropocentric: -18%

I have revived most of my puppets, so we should have smooth sailing for the next month or so.

The Eudaemonium of Dr George wrote:The only way to influence your stats outside of answering issues is to join the WA, but you have no control over whether the WA will improve a given ranking or degrade it. My working theory is that over the long haul, the WA has virtually zero effect. A given resolution might push your Civil Rights, for instance, up a tad, but the next is just as likely to lower your CR a tad in turn. I HAVE seen nations that were not answering issues but were members of the WA actually change governments because of the effects of particular WA resolutions, but that appears to be exceedingly rare.
The good news about Economy is that even if you answer economic issues at random, your Economy will eventually get to 100% (many believe it goes to 400%, but that is not shown). The game is biased towards accumulating wealth. However, that does NOT mean you can answer issues any old way and come out with a growing Economy. Economic Freedom is like Civil Rights and Political Freedom in that you have to grant your citizens the right to disagree with you in order to make your stats improve. Personally, almost all of my High Freedom nations have a minimum wage, do not allow industries to dump (or sell) waste, and also have free college tuition. This is why many of my High Freedom nations vacillate between Civil Rights Lovefest and Anarchy. You have to find creative ways to grow your economy and raise your Economic Freedoms without degrading the environment or some basic rights of workers. You can appoint a pro-business judge to your Supreme Court. You can subsidize certain industries. You can call in Pinkerton agents to break up strikes. You can actively fight certain unions. You can allow cannibalism. You can allow bloodsports. You can let children gamble. You can privatize beaches. You can eat your national animal. You can privatize mail, roads, even certain governments. It all depends on your tastes and POV.

Thank you very very much, I'm following your hints about WA too. ♡

Wait, so the WA actually effects rankings? Is there anywhere to see the changes like we can with issues?

No, seems there is no way to see effects, I will stare and wait for a While. I will report my news soon, I hope (?)
