I'm doing the same. Going full Celestia DOES spike corruption pretty hard.
Dude, never go full Celestia :D
Well, NationStates is pretty much built around a democratic or parliamentary system.
So I'm kinda going the route of the Celestia in "Rites of Ascension" (by CvBrony), where there is a Council of representatives, and various nobles with low, but still significant political power. And they are all pretty much corrupt in some way.
I mean, Celestia technically has the power to refute them all (just like in NationStates), but it comes at severe political cost. Like losing the nation.
After all, "Leaders only have the power their followers give them. Without a flock, a shepherd is merely a wanderer."
What're ye two talkin' about?
When I make decisions on issues, I don't do what I think is right, I roleplay as a Equestria-like nation of ponies.
Same with my other nation, The Empire of The Griffon Lands.
In one of my recent decisions, I used the Twilight rationale - good intentions, but without political experience. Since NationStates expects there to be representative bodies, it doesn't matter that you have good intentions, being lax with laws means that there will be corruption.
Better that there be a small evil, and one pony gets hurt than create a systematic problem that affects hundreds down the line.
I reacted like Twilight, who thought, "My citizen!" instead of thinking of long-term consequences.
...I take this roleplaying thing incredibly seriously. That probably comes from my fanfic writing.
(Although I have not yet done a full, in-character post with my nation yet, since I haven't really seen an opportunity in this group to do that yet.)
Ooh! What's the thing yer nation took its pride on?
Pretty much, I saved a pony from a corrupt legal contract, but in the process, made all legal contracts not binding.
Any other things?
Ha! Now my ponies are vegetarians.
Cake or Pie? let the battle begin!!!
