World Factbook Entry

Arkansas is a state in the south central region of the United States. Arkansas ranks 29th among the 50 states in total area, but, except for Louisiana and Hawaii, it is the smallest state west of the Mississippi River. Its neighbors are Missouri to the north, Tennessee and Mississippi to the east, Louisiana to the south, Texas to the southwest, and Oklahoma to the west. The name Arkansas was used by the early French explorers to refer to the Quapaw people—a prominent indigenous group in the area—and to the river along which they settled. The term was likely a corruption of akansea, the word applied to the Quapaw by another local indigenous community, the Illinois.

Embassies: Tennessee, Mississippi, Missouri, Kansas, Antarctic Oasis, The Pleiades, and Louisiana.

Generally that is how I like to answer the daily issues. The nation is generally conservative and generally open to the free market. Of course it is always assumed that NationStates is always "over the top" and as a result supporting local can sometimes make you an isolationist at times as well as other side effects that only mad issue writers would have thought up.

I love the issues—generally two sides to the same issue and then an anarchist option.

There are a number of issues I don't particularly like because of the way they are written. The evolution one is a good example because you are kidnapped by a scientist and that just puts me in a bad mood. There is another that basically destroys your office door but that's actually funny.

*does donuts*

Yeah, just had one about my declining birth rate. Choices were 3 child minimum, ban contraceptives, or make children be born by scientific growth in a lab. Definitely dismissed that one, haha! Too crazy of options

It can get really annoying if you're going for something like libertarianism or anarcho-capitalism. So many of the "pro market" options involve government subsidies to industry, protectionist trade policies, or similar claptrap. There often isn't a true free market option.

Unfortunately true.

Not naming names but there are a couple of issue authors/editors who......get a lot of dismissals from me.

Also lots of issues that would be more appropriate for a mayor or city council than a national government

Yes, that's a problem with the system in general. There is really no support for levels of government and their relationships to each other. In the real world, some governments are highly centralized and some limit the central government from local decisions. The same is true for systems where the executive has zero to limited legislation power.
