Read my last message. I am not trying to provoke you here anymore. I have in the past, but that was precisely because of your bad behavior.
Now, if you are willing to act civil and improve yourself I would be more than happy to bury the hatchet and help you out.

You ain't seen anything yet, m'lad.

As someone with a history of severe mental illness, don't taffing hide behind it and make it an excuse.* Take responsibility for what you say and do; don't hide behind an excuse. I've pulled some stupid taff in this region - and I have taken responsibility for what I did and bore the consequences. People lost trust and faith in me. Some I fear still don't trust me 100%, but it's taken years of growing, hard work and dedication to get to this point. Please don't claim that short sighted responses are the creations of anger or just label it with mental illness. It's insulting.

*I tried so hard to word this response right without mentioning this; but every time it feels it doesn't have the same impact without mentioning it. On a more serious note, if you ever need someone to talk to, bounce thoughts off or just rant - make sure you have someone IRL to do this. Whilst I could say "you can talk to me" and give myself a pat on the back for being a nice guy - it honestly probably won't help talking to a near stranger on the internet. Be sure you have someone to talk to in reality; parents, carer, friend, counsellor, doctor, teacher - just someone you can trust.

Did New Jacobland leave us? Damn.

Government


The Parliament Building, Luton

The Belantic government is split up between an executive, a legislative, and a judicial branch. This is at the national and state levels. The national government meets in Center City in Parliament, where most import decisions are made. The government's job is to provide defense, social services, education, healthcare, and safety to the citizens of the nation. Sates each have their own capital city and their own legislative body to conduct business that is within that state. Citizens elect all of their representatives and the president directly, the prime minister is appointed by the party that holds the majority in the Senate.

But describing the rest of the government will have to wait for another time.

Foreign Relations and Military
Belantica is currently working on establishing relations of various kinds.

Belantica has an decent military for a nation of it's size. It is a large expenditure, but other areas still receive more attention from the government. The military is managed by the Ministry of Defense (MOD). Its most prideful branch of the military is the Royal Belantic Navy (RBN), . The MOD has approved funding for development of new classes of vessel to be built or purchased for the fleet. The marine units were once there own separate branch, but have been consolidated into the Navy in 1994. The Royal Self Defense Force (RSDF) serves as the country's national guard, and perform mostly services such as disaster relief, peacekeeping, search and rescue, emergency logistics, and protecting citizens in the case of an attack. The RSDF is separate from the Army, but it can be easily confused with the army due to similar operations, tactics, and uniforms.

The Belantic economy is dominated by manufacturing, and is propelled mainly the the Automobile industry, with also healthy doses of other industries ranging from pharmaceuticals to weapons, and clothing to computers. Tourism and Gambling also playing a big role in the non-manufacturing sector and one of the fastest growing sectors. The automobile industry is the most established, with many brands that started in Belantica, such as Lancet-Deckard, Marin, Concord, and DeHughs, just to name a few. Automobiles count for around 60% of all Belantic exports. Many major corporations call Belantica home, due to the lax corporate tax rate and policies that benefit business. There are very few state-owned industries that do more specific tasks or build certain products, mostly for government contracts.

Belantic also has a strong agricultural sector, and provide the nation and others with products such as corn, wheat, grains, beef, pork, dairy products, and due to legalization, cannabis and hemp.

The largest stock market is located in Albany City, which is also a center for manufacturing and finance. Montego is considered the financial capital, but Nuranto has been catching up in recent years, due to Montego's alarming crime rate. Because of this, many companies choose to conduct business in nearby Nuranto, which also has the country's largest and busiest seaport. Montego has the second busiest port, handling both sea and river traffic, and the third busiest is located in Fairton on the east coast.

Infrastructure
Belantica's infrastructure is heavily developed in almost all areas. All the national and major highways are kept to high standards in order to ensure high speed road travel. The road system is regarded with pride, and could be the envy of other nations. The road system is designed to be over-developed so it can handle the large traffic expected in the near future. Belantica also boasts an extensive fiber optics network that can handle heavy loads of data and information being transmitted over long distances. The nation also contains a large rail network connecting most major cities with passenger rail, and almost all cities with freight rail. The railroad are owned and operated by a combination of private companies and Belantic Rail, the government-run service.

Energy
Most of Belantica's energy is produced from renewable resources or nuclear power, there are still natural gas plants in operation. All coal-fired power plants have been shut down as of January 2016 due to environmental impact and the large surplus being produced by cleaner resources. Petroleum products are still used as fuel, but in recent years, biofuels, electricity, and natural gas have become popular alternatives. It is also believed that researchers are looking into developing Thorium-based reactors.

You may not think you are, or you're lying to yourself, but it seems that everyone you lose control and have an outburst on here; you follow up by blaming mental illness and apologizing. That's what makes it seem like it's a veil or mask you wear as an excuse. Equally, apologies are hollow if they're not followed up by actions - I sincerely hope you are seeking help if you do indeed suffer.
