Oh, by the way, if you want to host the championship, please make a bid below stating the name of your special stadiums, capacities and why you should generally host.

Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a journalist. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a generally optimistic attitude towards humanity in general.
Your attitudes towards economics appear communist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a humanist. 
To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a sensible realistic egalitarian with several strong convictions.

Is entry open to Ursines (i.e. anthropomorphic Bears)?

(includes The Ursine NorthLands)
We do have a national government, although its role is strictly limited. Our population is approximately 19 million. Economy = thriving. Those aren't "biker gangs", they're our traditional cross-Clan 'Warrior Societies'... and are generally respected, not feared.

I would encourage you to offer more detail here - how will random scores be generated? Will there be any bonus for effective roleplaying?

I think this is an intriguing and refreshingly original idea - my Scottish half is even tempted to enter - but you'll have more success finding sign-ups if you can offer just a little more detail on how results will be generated.

Good luck!

I'm not happy with how you are scoring this. There is no place to put in RP bonuses to affect results. If you want to host an event then I suggest you use a program called a scornater

An RP bonus is a system where the players' posted roleplays are used to influence the final result. The three factors that normally go into results in most NS Sports events are randomness, rank, and roleplaying. Many events take little or no account of rank (past performances), and this one would clearly not. Comparatively few events do not reward roleplay in some fashion, although roleplay never determines winners and losers.

don't worry, i have taken all these problems into account, and have decided to make my own calculator. it will take into account:
1. Population
2. Life expectancy
3. amount of those things at the bottom of the screen that say top 5% or 10% of so and so...

The population thing is just bias towards nations who have been here for a long time. Still no RP bonus! I withdraw

What has life expectancy have to do with socrinating the games,I suggest you read the Roleplaying thread at the top of the NS Sports forum.
