Me and my puppets, IRL

Who am I
I'm 16, male, white, living in Colorado. Politically I identify as a democratic socialist with some leanings toward Trotskyism, anarcho-syndicalism, or anarcho-communism. I am a member of the Democratic Socialists of America.

I'm into GNU/Linux, and studying computer science primarily. My favorite video games include Minecraft, Morrowind, WarioWare, and lots of other things. My favorite TV and movies include anything sci-fi. I like Star Trek, Doctor Who, the Twilight Zone, Back to the Future, etc. I listen to a lot of electronic music, and my favorite artists include C418, Kraftwerk, Orbital, and occasionally Aphex Twin.

I am diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. I am relatively positive about this, seeing it as a difference rather than a disability.

Telegram me about anything, but I'm mostly active on The Cosmic Mainframe so you should probably just telegram that nation instead. As TCM, I currently run the NationStates Flag Bracket. Go vote now!

OOC things about this nation
This nation is currently in the process of a total lore reboot (including a retcon of all previous lore). Until then, it's not very precisely defined. This nation represents my real views, apart from some mistakes in NS issues and some compromises made for realism. The best way to describe it is that Guaylandia is what I would consider a good near-future for humanity.

I also use this nation to vote in the World Assembly. My real views are more pro-UN than anti-UN, as you can probably tell from the fact that I made it a world union, so I thought it would fit to have the nation that represents my real views vote in the WA.

I was recently appointed as a regional officer for the DankLeft Commune, which should be interesting.
I've submitted an issue as this nation. No idea whether or not it'll be accepted, but I'm still waiting for that telegram!
