As you may have seen, the World Assembly is currently voting on whether to ban capital punishment. As a member of the WA, I have voted against this proposition. What are your thoughts on the proposal?
Same with me lol
Somehow I always come back to NS within the same week of my nations anniversary
I voted yes. Both myself personally and my nation are against capital punishment.
Lemmingtopias and Terra Salem
Although I am personally against capital punishment, I voted in favour of allowing to remain a national choice because I think that those nations that utilize it may have a perfectly valid reason for doing so, such as massively underfunded prisons or being in a civil war. Without looking at the specific instances, it doesn't sit right with me to support a blanket ban on capital punishment.
Also, that might mean that I would no longer be allowed to experiment on captured insurgent leaders in the name of Science (http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Big_MT), and that cannot be allowed to happen.

I have made a discovery.
If you choose the Socialism option in some of the issues and get the Socialism policy as a result, your employment will automatically move into the top 10% of the world.
I think my nation has finally broken the NationStates trackers.
My nation's average income is $434,000 USD, I have a 105% income tax rate, I spend $0 on the government bureaucracy, and Tysoania brings in about 3,000 trillion TYR a year on the back of Tourism.
Praise Socialism, I guess?
Also, can we hold an election soon? One is overdue by now, and the WFE only says "suspended".
Who's actually active here atm... Is it just Ty, Roose, and I? 3 might not be enough to hold elections lol
Sound the air raid sirens! Mobilise the Civil Defence units and start stacking sandbags! ICBMs will soon be inbound!
Tysoania will remain committed to Strategic Specialisation and production of Shields for the duration of the conflict. Please plan accordingly and remember: taping your windows in a tight grid will prevent injury from broken glass.
I accidentally wandered into the General forum. I had forgotten how many people on this site seem to have...extreme opinions.
I mean, I was under the impression that the Tiananmen Square Massacre was considered an all-around bad thing by everyone, but apparently all the unarmed protesters deserved it for being American pawns or something.
I really think that we should a) give me recruiting authority, and b) set up the necessary government offices. Even if there's no one to occupy them, it is important to at least provide the image of a structured region.
