About me

The information below is no longer relevant, but I am keeping it for historical purposes. I am currently retired and no longer likely to return to active gameplay. My sole purpose here is to develop and maintain my NS-based Discord bot.

Hello! My name is August. This a quick bio describing who I am on NationStates and off of it.


Started playing: February 2010.
Regions involved with: Cape of Good Hope, Conch Kingdom, Lands End, Ridgefield, Dawn, Narnia, some classified.
Military organizations involved with: Joint Task Force.
My "character" in gameplay: Diplomat and strategist.
Favorite NS memory: Way too many to count. First N-Day victory, maybe?
Likes: Region-building (enough said), creative military strategy, the issues game, lurking the GP and SC forums, writing dispatches that nobody reads.
Dislikes: Useless puppets, oversized puppet storage regions, region squatters/puppet empire builders (noticing a theme here?), tag raiding, NSG, embassy request spammers, GP communists who think their moral crusades actually matter.
Greatest accomplishment: Cap said I was nice once <3.

Real Life

Location: East Coast, US.
Age: Link1663.
Sex: Male.
Occupation: Electrical engineer.
Previous experience: US military.
Religion: Roman Catholic.
Priorities: Efficiency before all else, professionalism.
Personality: Organized, stubborn, strongly individualist.
Political compass: 10 economic (right), -8 social (libertarian).
Views: First and foremost an individualist, strongly capitalist, pro-globalism and open borders; opposed to any sort of collectivism (socialism, communism, fascism, etc), government monopolies (especially public schools), abortion, drinking, drug use, gender identity silliness; my opposition to a thing does not mean I think it should be illegal. The general idea here is that if something is not somehow productive, I am opposed to it.
Likes: Sailing, fixed-wing aircraft, aero propulsion systems (especially turboprops), electronic hardware, swimming, biking, running, math, politics/ethics/morality, moose.
Dislikes: Spam/nonsense, rules without reasons, moose.
