Compendium of Player Info - DO NOT POST.

Postby Of the Free Socialist Territories » Fri Nov 16, 2012 2:03 pm

Player Info, Version 3.0


I started the Player Info Submission Thread (which is, unsurprisingly, where you should submit your information for this thread) about a week ago in response to the stupendous inactivity of the old player info thread. After a week, there's been about 35 responses for the new one, so it seemed right to start compiling this info into the new (!) Player Info Thread, which you're now looking at.

I'll try and update it weekly. Links to each letter will be placed below.


I had a sudden desire to represent NSGers' opinions graphically while doing this, so see below! This, too, will be updated weekly if possible.

I now have 1 request.

Generalites - Please do not post here. Please. Not at all. If there's a problem, TG me. Please.



And with that, I'll begin updating this.

Don't be deceived when our Revolution has finally been stamped out and they tell you things are better now even if there's no poverty to see, because the poverty's been hidden...even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which these new industries foist on you, and even if it seems to you that "you never had so much" - that is only the slogan of those who have much more than you.

Abatael

The New Imperium of Abatael
Real Name: Alex M.
Age: 15.
General Location: Fairfax County, Virginia, U.S.
General Political Affiliation [if any]: Right-wing.
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Roman Catholic.
Where Did You Find NationStates?: Online.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No.
Professional Goal: Law.
What is your favorite genre of music: I like religious music, country music, classical music and rap. It's an interesting combination, I know.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: I can speak in English and Latin. I can write in English and Latin. I'm learning Koine Greek.
Other information: I'm a boy. I was born on August in 1997 in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA. I'm a sophomore. I go to a private, Roman Catholic school. I'm a wide receiver on the football team of that school. And I'm a nationalist.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: No; except in cases when the child is the product of incest, when the life of the mother is threatened by the child being born or when the child has a disorder of some kind.
Affirmative Action: I'm completely opposed to affirmative action.
Aid (International): I don't believe the United States should be aiding other nations. I do, however, feel it's okay if we were to receive something in return, similar to quid pro quo.
Arms Trade: No; I am against this.
Death Penalty: I fully support the death penalty. I feel it should be applied to all felonies and that the list of felonies should be rewritten, so that it may include many more violations.
Drones: I think it's morally and practically acceptable for the government to use drones against enemy combatants. I don't feel that innocent civilians should be attacked if it can be avoided; however, I don't feel that our priorities should revolve around avoiding collateral damage.
Drugs: Yes, to legitimate, therapeutic use. No, otherwise.
Economic System: I take the Fascistic model of corporatism but not as far as the Pope.
Education: College should be private. K-12 can remain free for now.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Yes; it may remain.
Environmentalism: I support environmentalism, but I feel that it should only be supported insofar as it allows progress.
Euthanasia: I'm against euthanasia, whether or not it is wanted by the potential recipient.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: I believe in both. I believe that God created the world and humans. I feel evolution is a tool used by God to advance other animals.
Gay Marriage: I'm against same-sex marriages and unions and partnerships on all levels. The same goes for homosexuality in general.
Gun Control: I feel guns should be regulated and that background checks be ran on anyone and everyone, who wishes to buy a firearm. I also feel that they should all be cataloged with the information of the owner.
Immigration Policies: I feel the U.S. needs to adopt stricter immigration policies by, in essence, stopping immigration.
Income Tax: I support taxation, but I don't believe that certain agencies or functions should be subsidized by those taxes. (Exempli gratia, socialized medicine.) I support a so-called progressive tax rate. I don't like the word "progressive," but I support the idea of it.
Iran: I don't believe we should be there to instill a democracy. The only reason we should be there is to eliminate terrorists and promote national safety.
Israel/Palestine: I support the one and only legitimate state: Israel.
LGBTQ Rights: I'm against LGBT… rights fully and completely.
Philosophy: Fascism.
Political Party Affiliation: I don't identify completely with any American political organizations, but the closest organization, with which I identify myself, is the Constitution Party. Out of the two major parties, however, I identify with the GOP the best.
President Obama/American Policies: I support neither Obama nor most of his policies.
Prostitution: I'm entirely against prostitution. I feel any participants of prostitution, regardless of their role in this iniquity, should be condemned to death.
Religion: I support religion in general and Christianity in specific.
Social Security: I feel social security should be privatized.
The UN: I feel the U.S. should withdraw from the U.N. immediately and remove its headquarters from the territory of the U.S.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I am not a vegan or vegetarian myself, and I find those practices to be inane.
War on Terror: I support this effort entirely.

Professional Goal: UN Worker
What is your favourite genre of music: Any except Metal and Scream-O
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English and Spanish
Other information: I like chocolate and pie.

Abortion: Should be legal. Reform the system to ensure it isn't abused.
Affirmative Action: No.
Aid (International): Only when it benefits the nation.
Arms Trade: Should be reduced to small arms.
Death Penalty: Depends on what costs more.
Drones: Yes, but technology needs more development
Drugs: Marijuana should be legal. Cocaine, LSD, Ecstasy, Heroin and other drugs not already legal should stay illegal.
Economic System: Interventionism during economic downturns, laissez-faire during economic upturns
Education: Public education reform.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Generally okay, but no longer really needed.
Environmentalism: Pro-Nuclear Fusion development; Pro-Alternative Energy development.
Euthanasia: Only if the person in question requests it.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution. However, the Big Bang can be taken as a euphemism.
Gay Marriage: Should be allowed.
Gun Control: Should be enforced with registration.
Immigration Policies: Should reform immigration so it doesn't take a long enough time for potential immigrants to be killed or die.
Income Tax: Yes.
Iran: Iran needs to grow up and realize that the United States still has enough bombs to nuke them fifty times over at least.
Israel/Palestine: The two sides need to grow up and realize that they're basically fighting over a strip of mostly sand. The two sides need to get along.
LGBTQ Rights: Should be allowed.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): At some point governments needs to realize that fighting against human rights eventually becomes a pointless thing. If people want it enough, they will fight for it, whatever the cost. Generally though, humanity can be good... we're just not good at being good sometimes.
Political Party Affiliation: Democratic Party
President Obama/American Policies: Support Obama; lesser of two evils and all that.
Prostitution: Why the Hell have we not legalized this by now?
Religion: Should stay out of politics. It's not their job to govern the lives of people. It's the government's.
Social Security (Welfare): Needs to be reformed so I can possibly look forward to getting such a thing when I'm too old to see straight anymore.
The UN: Needs to be stronger. It's a step in the right direction from the League of Nations, but the United Nations needs to increase in strength to have a stronger chance at improving human rights on a global scale.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Personally am not. For other people, it's their choice.
War on Terror: Needs to be fought with drones rather than soldiers. Less risk of violations of human rights by men in uniform (and yes, I am aware that drones can miss), and less likely for anyone to put a black mark on the record of our armed forces. They deserve respect for defending the interests of the United States and its people, not scorn for just a few of its members.


Angleter
Picture: Nah.
IM Contacts: Nah.
Political Beliefs (i.e. name your ideology, if one applies): Conservative libertarian.

The Apostolic Kingdom of Angleter
Real Name: Nah.
Age: 18
Gender: Male.
General Location: Birmingham, United Kingdom.
General Political Affiliation [if any]: Tory.
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Roman Catholic (somewhat lapsed).
Where Did You Find NationStates?: On the Internet.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No.
Professional Goal: To graduate, and then I have no idea.
What is your favourite genre of music: I like most to some degree.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English, and to some extent French and German.
Other information:

Abortion: I support legal abortion, although I think the limit should be reduced to 20 weeks, and vested interests barred from providing counselling services.
Affirmative Action: No.
Aid (International): In the form of microfinance, yes, to some extent.
Arms Trade: Yes.
Death Penalty: No.
Drones: Yes, provided they're used right.
Drugs: Legalise cannabis first, and if that works, then start legalising the rest. If it doesn't work, ban it again.
Economic System: Ordoliberal capitalism, with the state involved in providing certain services.
Education: Dutch or Swedish style voucher system.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Good.
Environmentalism: Provided it's not used to raise taxes and exert greater state control over the economy, good.
Euthanasia: Not a fan. Not sure if it should be legalised.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Theistic evolution.
Gay Marriage: Yes, so long as the gay community wants it. I certainly support civil partnerships with equal benefits regardless.
Gun Control: I believe guns (including handguns) should be legal, but quite strictly regulated (ie. no [sub]machine-guns, only so many per person, safe storage, must know how to use them, psychiatric evaluation, etc.).
Immigration Policies: We should only permanently take in immigrants who will fill a skilled labour shortage (in the unlikely event that we get an unskilled labour shortage, I'd support a temporary guest worker programme), or have a plan (and the means) to set up a business, and we should encourage integration between immigrants and natives.
Income Tax: Progressive, but not too progressive and not too high.
Iran: The West should seek to isolate Iran (which I'll assume it probably is doing anyway). However, if intelligence ever suggests that Iran has decided to build, and is in the process of building, a nuclear weapon, then there needs to be a clear red line.
Israel/Palestine: I support a Palestinian state on (there or thereabouts) the borders proposed by Olmert a few years back (but no detached parts), with a passage between Gaza and the West Bank, and preferably in some kind of confederation with Jordan. However, it must recognise Israel, renounce all further territorial claims, and accept whatever 'right of return' offer Israel makes - and these pledges must be reflected in its actions.
LGBTQ Rights: Yes, I suppose.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Dunno, really.
Political Party Affiliation: Conservative Party (not a member)
President Obama/American Policies: Alright, I suppose - in foreign policy terms, at least.
Prostitution: Might as well legalise it.
Religion: I support freedom of religion, and believe that the state should be secular in its policy-making.
Social Security (Welfare): I support a Negative Income Tax to replace most welfare programmes.
The UN: Harmless, but not particularly useful.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I'm not one, but I respect people's choices.
War on Terror: In principle, quite a good idea. In practice, generally not good.

Economic System: Centre-left, mixed economy with welfare state
Education: Universal, free and compulsory
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Not American

Astrolinium

IM Contacts: Nope.

The Sublime Island Kingdom of Astrolinium
Real Name: Elijah
Age: 17
Gender: Male
General Location: North Carolina
General Political Affiliation [if any]: I guess Democratic Socialist.
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Irreligious.
Where Did You Find NationStates?: I don't remember.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No
Professional Goal: To be a high school band director.

Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English and Latin. A little bit of Spanish, hardly enough to consider it significant.
Other information: I like men. I play the euphonium. Muffins are the bomb. I like Doctor Who and run a Doctor Who rp in P2TM. I like to write and read and draw and compose.

Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Pro-choice.
Affirmative Action: In favor, but it ought to be careful.
Aid (International): Only if it's helping to mold developing nations into more modern societies. And also for basic human rights shit, like making sure women aren't oppressed and making sure orphans in Africa have water or whatever.
Arms Trade: Needs more regulation.
Death Penalty: Against.
Drones: For, but they should have restrictions and should be used very sparingly.
Drugs: I'm pro-legalization of cannabis, and I guess banning alcohol and tobacco would accomplish nothing, but everything else should stay illegal. Crack is whack, guys.
Economic System: Mixed economy with a more socialist leaning than capitalist.
Education: It should be free, teachers should be better paid, and we need to reform it to better engage and stimulate students as well as cater to individual needs. Should under no circumstances be privatized, though private schools should be an option for students who wish to go to them.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Needs to go.
Environmentalism: One of the most important things we as a people can pursue in this century.
Euthanasia: Legalize it.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution, and creationism is a very silly idea.
Gay Marriage: For, obviously. I hope to get one someday.
Gun Control: Semi-automatic weapons and automatic weapons should not be allowed into the hands of civilians.
Immigration Policies: They need to be more open - our restrictive ones are artifacts of an outdated and racist ideal.
Income Tax: Progressive. Very progressive.
Iran: They can go stew in a pot on their own.
Israel/Palestine: I support the right of Israel to exist, but it's time the US lets them go be a big nation on their own and stops changing their diapers for them. They can sink or swim without us.
LGBTQ Rights: These are good and we should have them. To think otherwise is moronic and indicative of ignorance and reactionary, backwards policies.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): I dunno. I'm probably some sort of hedonist if I were to really look into it, but otherwise I don't follow a philosophy.
Political Party Affiliation: Independent.
President Obama/American Policies: I like Obama. He's cool.
Prostitution: Legalize it and regulate it.
Religion: It's bad, but as long as it isn't hurt anyone I guess it's fine. I firmly believe organized religion is on the way out and look forward for the day the Bible is considered as factual as Ovid's Metamorphoses, not that I'll live to see it.
Social Security (Welfare): It's a good idea, but it perhaps needs some reform.
The UN: They need more muscle.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: It think it's silly, but I don't mind. More bacon for me.
War on Terror: Should never have even started that mess.

Don't be deceived when our Revolution has finally been stamped out and they tell you things are better now even if there's no poverty to see, because the poverty's been hidden...even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which these new industries foist on you, and even if it seems to you that "you never had so much" - that is only the slogan of those who have much more than you.

Ca-Ci

Central and Eastern Visayas
Picture: Rape face? Meh.
IM Contacts: No, thank you.
Player Profile:
The Federal Republic of Central and Eastern Visayas
Real Name: Alistair J. M. Caseñas
Age: 21
Gender: Male
General Location: Philippines (GMT +8)
General Political Affiliation [if any]: Libertarian with right-of-center inclination
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Roman Catholicism
Where Did You Find NationStates?: TV Tropes forums.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No. (I don't even think bookstores in PH sell any of them.)
Professional Goal: Still a college student.
What is your favorite genre of music: Diverse, but partial to classical and jazz.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English, Cebuano, Tagalog.
Other information:

1. ADHD.
2. Despite being a Filipino, English is my first language. On more than one occasion, I have been mistaken for an American as a result.
3. Left-handed.
4. Born out of wedlock, and can be a jackass at times, making me a bastard in more ways than one. :D

Political Beliefs:
Abortion: When the mother's life is in danger, and only as a last resort. (As you can see, my... bastardy, for want of a better term, has something to do with this.)
Affirmative Action: Against. Reverse discrimination is still discrimination, and discrimination is not best fought with discrimination.
Aid (International): Acceptable, but the impetus to aid should not be forced upon those who are capable. Doing so would defeat the spirit of aid.
Arms Trade: An inevitability given human nature. Regulation can open a can of worms best left closed.
Death Penalty: A necessary evil. Even the CCC does not discount recourse to capital punishment; to be honest, however, death is too easy for some criminals.
Drones: Neutral, though I'm pretty sure UCAV use would change the Laws of War.
Drugs: Personal choice, should be decriminalized if not outright legalized (cf. Netherlands).
Economic System: Free-market capitalist.
Education: Not a right, but almost certainly a duty in the modern age. Knowledge, after all, is power far more effective than force of arms (cf. Malala's cause in Pakistan).
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Neutral.
Environmentalism: Never at the cost of human progress.
Euthanasia: Only if death is an inevitably that will not be delayed.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Both. Accounting for biblical exigesis, the Creationists have a point.
Gay Marriage: Personal choice. It's still not as gay as Twilight, though (to be honest, nothing can ever be so). :p
Gun Control: Should mean "make every shot count," not "a government monopoly on firearms." The latter, frankly, is polizeistaat material. Compare the Swiss.
Immigration Policies: Legal, yes. Illegal... Frankly, it's a crapshoot at this point. :(
Income Tax: Should be lower. (Didn't JFK argue for lower income taxes?) Punishing the wealthy for earning more is somewhat counterproductive.
Iran: Ahmadinejad once declared he would wipe a possibly-nuclear-capable Israel off the map and as a result, force the Samson option. Something needs to be done.
Israel/Palestine: More Israel than Palestine, though both factions might need a good bitch-slapping.
LGBTQ Rights: They should be treated like average heterosexual human beings; no special treatment, in other words.
Philosophy: Should be further spread. Personally, I'm somewhat partial to SS. Thomas Aquinas and Augustine of Hippo.
Political Party Affiliation: Too bad there is no party with a libertarian platform in the Philippines... :(
President Obama/American Policies: If only Ron Paul was the Republican nominee.../Need reform--and quickly!
Prostitution: Should be regulated (again, cf. Netherlands).
Religion: As long as you respect my beliefs, I will respect yours.
Social Security: Privatize. Let the free market take its course.
The UN: Less talk and more action, especially in the places that matter (Syria comes to mind); should be more like a confederation (sure doesn't feel like one to me).
Veganism/Vegetarianism: As long as said vegan/vegetarian doesn't belittle us meat-eaters who understand that the enamel in our teeth isn't exactly built for an herbivorous diet (too thin).
War on Terror: Bin Laden's death aside, it makes about as much sense overall as the American War on Drugs: a policy that has a habit of backfiring on America and other parts of the world.

Abortion: Only if the fetus may cause harm to the mother.

Environmentalism:
Euthanasia: Sure, why not?
Evolution or Creation (or both)?:
Gay Marriage: Yes.
Gun Control: Never, strongly oppose.
Immigration Policies:
Income Tax:
Iran: Ignore them. So what if they have nukes? We do too.
Israel/Palestine: Dont care. Let em kill each other. They've been doing it for thousands of years.
LGBTQ Rights: Yes, songly suported.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?):
Political Party Affiliation:
President Obama/American Policies:
Prostitution: Dont care.
Religion: Freedom of....and from religion.
Social Security (Welfare): Leave it as it is, we dont need to give lazy people more money just for sitting on their asses.
The UN: They should lay off my guns.
Veganism/Vegetarianism:
War on Terror: Pointless. End it.

Age: 14

General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Atheism
Where Did You Find NationStates?: Just stumbled across it on Google one day.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No.
Professional Goal: Become a pilot
What is your favourite genre of music: Not really a music person. If I had to say something, however, it'd probably be heavy metal.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English (UK), French (average), German (average), Spanish (Very basic), Italian (Very basic), Japanese (just hello and thank you), Russian (3 words), pigeon Korean (trying to sing Gangnam Style lyrics)
Other information: I'm human.

Abortion: Yes, but only if the foetus is in very early stages of development.
Affirmative Action: Yes, but attempt to do something about (insert skin colour) supremacy groups etc etc.
Aid (International): Only if it goes to something that actually benefits the country/countries in question, such as healthcare.
Arms Trade: Err... neutral.
Death Penalty: Yes. Some may say its not an effective deterrent, but hey - it stops them from committing crimes again!
Drones: I'm saying no. Especially if they are misused.
Drugs: No, no and double no.
Economic System: The workers/proletarians controlling the means of production. Without currency, stateless etc.
Education: Free - including university. As the Communist Manifesto states (well, it's something along the lines of what it says, I read it around a year ago and can't remember all of it) "Free education for all".
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: So-so. Get rid of the two-party politics, and we've got a deal.

Gay Marriage: I don't have any problems with it. Perhaps.
Gun Control: Make it so only the police, military and their associates can have them.
Immigration Policies: Asylum seekers - yes, but only if they can prove they have fled from danger. Ordinary immigrants, I think, should learn English and work, otherwise, bye-bye.
Income Tax: No overall income tax, but if some people become richer than others, tax them.
Iran: A threat to the West, maybe. Though it'll probably follow in Syria's footsteps in a few decades' time.
Israel/Palestine: Permanent ceasefire is impossible, but it would be unacceptable to sit back and watch the two shell the living daylights out of one another.
LGBTQ Rights: Again, I don't have a problem. Give them equality if they want.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Do I look like a philosopher to you?
Political Party Affiliation: Probably the CPGB (Communist Part of Great Britain).
President Obama/American Policies: OK, but being part of a two-party system I do not like. Liabilities outweigh the benefits.
Prostitution: Legalise it, but monitor it closely.
Religion: Atheism. Religion, at least in my view, has caused the most wars in the past 2,000 years or so. Get rid of it, and there'd probably have been less violence.
Social Security (Welfare): Yes indeed. A vital priority.
The UN: Bah, humbug! An organisation to get more countries involved in a war between two other countries which have nothing to do with it. Pointless, in my opinion - it doesn't really find a peaceful solution.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Again, annoying in some cases. I'm an omnivore.
War on Terror: An unnecessary waste of money and lives, made impossible to finish by Rules of Engagement.

Don't be deceived when our Revolution has finally been stamped out and they tell you things are better now even if there's no poverty to see, because the poverty's been hidden...even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which these new industries foist on you, and even if it seems to you that "you never had so much" - that is only the slogan of those who have much more than you.

The Commonwealth of Elytran

Real Name: Teva (psuedonym)

Age: Seventeen
Gender: Female

General Location: United States
General Political Affiliation [if any]: Liberal
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Monotheism

Where Did You Find NationStates?: Through a friend.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Not yet.

Professional Goal: Educational Activist, Author, and Computer Engineer
What is your favourite genre of music: Jazz/R&B/Soul

Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English, Spanish (Mexican, primarily)


Abortion: I am Pro-Choice, though I do believe that abortions should be reserved for cases extreme cases, and not encouraged as a "backspace" for consensual sex/knowing participation in unprotected sex.

Affirmative Action: Mostly for, given that it is maintained in a manner that benefits both the underrepresented individual being considered, and the position in which they are being considered. Certain personal factors should not be the only means of approving an individual.

Aid (International): For.

Arms Trade: Against.

Death Penalty: For, given that it is only used when the evidence against a person is undeniably overwhelming to their guilt in a matter.

Drones: No opinion.

Drugs: Non-lethal/low-risk drugs such as marijuana should be legalized, and monitored through legal avenues to promote healthy use, and knowledge of their affects. Drugs such as cocaine and tobacco should be banned, as they are high-risk and easily tied to lethal reactions.

Economic System: Social Capitalism; that is the greater focus on the whole of a nation, as opposed to that of the few business owners. The federal goverment/public offices should have primary control over the standards that are allowed/disallowed in the private sector, to ensure that workers are being treated as fairly as possible.

Education: Public education, being entirely free or of minimized cost, should be available at all levels of study with the same support and opportunities as private institutions.

Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: No opinion.

Environmentalism: Should be promoted through government media outlets, public media outlets, and educational facilities. It is crucial to the future of our world/nations.

Euthanasia: Should be approved on a case-by-case basis.

Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Both.

Gay Marriage: For; given that churches are still able to choose whether or not they wish to marry non-heterosexual couples in their facilities. Marriage is not solely a religious practice, as it is recognized by the law, and should be subject to the same secularism that most laws are subject to.

Gun Control: For. Gun control is not the same as gun confiscation or bans. There should be a heavier limit to what guns are available, with a strict baackground check for those who are buying guns through legal avenues. Illegal avenues should be sought out and brought down to prevent more gun violence.

Immigration Policies: The immigration system (primarily US) needs to be reformed so that it is easier for families to emigrate into the nation. Those who are known to be troublemakers or criminals should not be allowed into the nation without a probationary period of 2 - 4 years.

Income Tax: Income tax should be higher for those who are in the top 10% of earners, and significantly lower for those in the bottom 10%. The middle 80% should have a fair proportion of their income taxed, without taking so much away that they are barely scraping by.

Iran: No opinion.

Israel/Palestine: No opinion.

LGBTQ Rights: Should be recognized by the law, disregarding religious preferences or ideals. Human rights are human rights.

Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Humanism.

Political Party Affiliation: Undecided.

President Obama/American Policies: If I were old enough, I would've voted for him during both elections. I believe he is a capable president. I believe that the two-party system needs to be dissolved in favor of giving all parties equal exposure during elections.

Prostitution: Should be legalized and regulated to minimize the abuse and mistreatment of individuals participating in the industry. Sex trafficking and the like should remain illegal.

Religion: Religion and spiritual preferences should be kept to a personal level, and left out of politics. Politics should be left out of religion and spiritual preferences.

Social Security (Welfare): For, though the system needs to be reformed in a way that promotes more productive members of society as opposed to contentment with not supporting oneself.

The UN: No opinion.

Veganism/Vegetarianism: Commendable ways of life, but should be held to the same standard as religious practices—private matters.

War on Terror: It was a hoke to begin with, it's a hoke now, and it should have never happened.

Esternial
Picture:
My face is a mystery to all but a few lucky persons on this forum. I keep it exclusive.

The Alpacalypse of Esternial
Real Name: Same applies as the 'picture'
Age: 19
General Location: Eastern Flanders, Belgium
General Political Affiliation [if any]: Centre-left, more or less.
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Laissez-faire Atheist, most likely.
Where Did You Find NationStates?:
I was looking for a nation-based game and ended up here.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Nope, sorry Max.
Professional Goal: Preferably something involved with the environment.
What is your favorite genre of music: Rock, whether indie, classic or alternative. I also like classical music (Vivaldi) as well as dubstep (Original Sin), so I'm not really picky.
Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Pro-choice
Affirmative Action: Neutral
Arms Trade: Neutral
Death Penalty: Against, more or less.
Drugs: Against hard drugs, in favour of the legalization of cannabis.
Economic System: New Keynesian, probably. I'm not sure.

Prostitution: Somewhat indecisive. Perhaps if properly regulated by a governmental institution for the well-being of the prostitutes, governments could in exchange tax the sector to fund this institution as well as others.
Religion: Laissez-faire, unless they're overly aggressive or ignorant.
Social Security: Much in favour.
The UN: Much in favour.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Although a vegitarian meal now and then wouldn't hurt, I'm against an exclusive vegan/vegitarian diet.
War on Terror: Not sure, afraid it's doing more harm than it should.

Don't be deceived when our Revolution has finally been stamped out and they tell you things are better now even if there's no poverty to see, because the poverty's been hidden...even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which these new industries foist on you, and even if it seems to you that "you never had so much" - that is only the slogan of those who have much more than you.

Sure am glad we wrote that twice, huh?

Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Nope
Professional Goal: Working on that
What is your favourite genre of music: The life and times of Steely Dan
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: Inglesh
Other information: Not a flying toy

Abortion: Go for it
Affirmative Action: Often flawed in execution, but for now, vital in principle
Aid (International): as above, actually
Arms Trade: Probably not ideal, but for now, preferable to economic decline. Ethically problematic.
Death Penalty: Quite glad it's no longer practiced here. Reform is, broadly speaking, good.
Drones: Bzzzzzt. Ethically no more reprehensible than the rest of the industrial-military complex.
Drugs: Wahey! Not my personal bag on a day to day basis, but they shouldn't necessarily be a crime.
Economic System: More or less as it is now, but with fewer bastards, I suppose
Education: Well, yes.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: I am honestly insufficiently educated on your political system to make a judgement one way or another.
Environmentalism: Not sure it's a huge issue right now.
Euthanasia: Go for it. But I can understand why it's tricky.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: I don't have a huge amount of faith that someone decided to make all this.
Gay Marriage: You mean... marriage, right? Because I didn't have "gay lunch" today, I had lunch.
Gun Control: This is a good one - gun control is a pretty good way of eroding a culture of gun violence

Income Tax: I don't like paying it, but I'm glad that it gets paid.
Iran: Sure is a nation.
Israel/Palestine: Oh, so are those.
LGBTQ Rights: You mean... human rights? Because they're still people, no matter what they like to do to whom with whatever's between their legs
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): That's a complicated question. But I think we should all try and be generally nicer to one another than we are currently being.
Political Party Affiliation: I tend to end up floating between Labour and Lib/Dem in the UK
President Obama/American Policies: Ah, this is such a US-centric poll. What's your view of David Cameron, and British policy?
Prostitution: Don't see why this is illegal, really.
Religion: Hurray for faith!
Social Security (Welfare): There are people who need help, and should not be judged for needing it.
The UN: I have a similar view to the UN as I do to damp proof coursing in my walls. It's probably really useful, but I don't tend to engage with it much on an intellectual basis.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: This sure is a thing people do.
War on Terror: God, is this still going on? What a waste.

The United Kingdom of the Nine Realms of Greater Oronti
Real Name: James
Age: 25
Gender: Male
General Location: Oregon, United States
General Political Affiliation [if any]: Independent, tend to vote Libertarian
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Atheism
Where Did You Find NationStates?: That information is lost on the sands of time from having been multiple nations over the last decade or so.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No, I’m not a masochist.
Professional Goal: Legal work in a human rights focused NGO. Failing that, the JAG corps.
What is your favourite genre of music: Classical.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: Fluent in English and French, Passable at Spanish and Quenya, not entirely helpless at Chinese and Japanese, and I can manage to say something intelligent in 6 or 7 more, albeit mostly pleasantries and a request to speak a different language.
Other information: Happily domestic partnered homosexual.

Abortion: I support the Cairo Declaration. Abortion is not a means of birth control or way of avoiding the consequences of your stupidity, but illegalization is unlikely to help.
Affirmative Action: Government sponsored = BAD. Private companies deciding to do it = none of my business.
Aid (International): Not worthless, if we were smart about it.
Arms Trade: No problem, per se though it probably wouldn’t hurt to be a bit more intelligent about it.
Death Penalty: Morally required in a society that values justice.
Drones: They have their uses.
Drugs: General legalization to the extent the moronic choice of being a druggy doesn’t harm others.
Economic System: Laissez-faire market capitalism.
Education: Important. In serious need of reform.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Ought to be strengthened and the system reformed to return the College to its purpose.
Environmentalism: You’re joking, right? Let the market sort out the right level.
Euthanasia: Fine by me.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution, although I do note that as a matter of pure semantics, the two are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
Gay Marriage: Yes, to the extent the State must be involved.
Gun Control: Generally opposed. I support common sense ideas, but common sense is in short supply amongst gun control advocates.
Immigration Policies: Freedom of movement for people and goods is good. Multi-culturalism is a load of horse shit.
Income Tax: Ideally, non-existent. If we must, flat-rate.
Iran: Tin-pot dictatorship that is at most a regional nuisance. Tell the Europeans and Iran’s neighbors to stop free-loading and deal with their problems themselves.
Israel/Palestine: There can be no doubt as to the moral superiority of the Zionist state over the so-called Palestinian people. A one state solution is most preferential.
LGBTQ Rights: Mixed. The government should be neutral in all respects. Private persons and institutions have the right to be as bigoted as they want.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Ethical egoism.
Political Party Affiliation: None. Libertarians come closest.
President Obama/American Policies: He manages to have the occasional good idea, despite being an abject failure as a President.
Prostitution: Legalize.
Religion: A dangerous blight on society, but outside the power of any legitimate government to do away with.
Social Security (Welfare): Do away with it. Not a proper government function.
The UN: Useless.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Idiotic, but a personal choice.
War on Terror: Killing terrorists is good, when we happen to find them. War on Terror is an inane phrase. Terror as an idea must be combatted by the ideological superiority of secular laissez-faire capitalism, which precludes the use of force.


Gylias
Picture: Yup, I'm ugly.
IM Contacts: Nah. Maybe TG me if they're really necessary.
Political Beliefs (i.e. name your ideology, if one applies): Anarcho-communism/Democratic socialism/Social democracy/Scandinavia fanboyism?

The Republic of Gylias
Real Name: Chris.
Age: 21, as of August 2012.
Gender: Biologically male. Traditionally didn't put much thought into gender, so maybe I should start thinkin' about that.
General Location: London, UK.
General Political Affiliation [if any]: Left. Bounces around between anarcho-communism, democratic socialism and social democracy depending on whether it's long-term, short-term, "realistic", idealistic, etc. Basically, my ideal society would be a combination of Scandinavia and the Netherlands, and then continue from there.
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Atheism/agnosticism. There's more important things to worry about anyways.
Where Did You Find NationStates?: I can't remember, it was in 2005.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Not yet... :(
Professional Goal: Figure out what my professional goal is, play in a band during my free time.
What is your favourite genre of music: Rock, electronic, funk, hip-hop, alternative rock, punk, metal and various subgenres of the three (especially shoegazing)... I try to listen to varied genres, but there's some things I just don't get. Like a lot of pop music, with some exceptions.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English and Romanian. I have some basic knowledge of French (studied in school) and scattered bits of German (extracurricular study), Hebrew (studied in high school) and know a few words in Japanese (watching too much anime).
Other information: I seem to have an odd talent for annoying people. Trying to get rid of it.

Abortion: SIckening to see men tell women what to do with their bodies. Pro-choice. Anything else repulses me.
Affirmative Action: Sometimes necessary, but we really need to think of better ways to redress the legacy of institutionalised discrimination. Affirmative action is a short-term band-aid at best.
Aid (International): Can do good, doesn't really address global inequalities by itself.
Arms Trade: Do we really need more murder tools in the world?
Death Penalty: No.
Drones: Unleashing them against civilians is a blatantly terrible idea.
Drugs: Criminalising them blatantly fails. Legalise and regulate/control them. Maybe make them a government monopoly, like Sweden's systembolaget.
Economic System: Post-war consensus was good until the New Right assaulted it. I'd love to see an actual anarcho-communist society, but I doubt that'll happen while I'm alive, so I'll stick with social democracy/socialism + workers' self-management/cooperatives/councils for now.
Education: Universal free public education with a more Deweyite design sounds good to me. We should teach people to be critically thinking citizens instead of providing them with glorified job training.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Why not switch to two-round voting or instant runoff voting instead?
Environmentalism: Yup.
Euthanasia: What right do we have to tell people what they can't do with their bodies? Legalise and control it, so only people who really need it would obtain it.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution, a bit too predictably.
Gay Marriage: It's a human right.
Gun Control: I'm too European to understand the irrational hysteria of gun politics. Banning them works for the UK.
Immigration Policies: Immigration keeps a country from stagnation. Xenophobia has no place in government policies. "Illegal" immigration wouldn't be a problem in the first place if governments could be arsed to enforce national minimum wages.
Income Tax: Progressive tax with high marginal rates. It worked in the post-war consensus, what's the excuse now?
Iran: Iranians have had 30+ years to get sick of wannabe theocrats. Trick is to help them in overthrowing the Islamic Republic without wrecking the whole thing. Oh, and there's an unsurprising amount of ignorance about Iran itself in discourse about Iran.
Israel/Palestine: The worst part of this is nobody cares about Palestinians. Personally, I'd like Israel to abandon its stupid 'Jewish and democratic state" and become a state for all its citizens instead of defining itself through the superiority of one ethnicity, but that probably won't happen.
LGBTQ Rights: Completely for.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Maximise happiness and minimise suffering for as many people as possible. Which is kind of hard to do in a neoliberal capitalist system.
Political Party Affiliation: UK-wise, I'm closest to the SNP and Greens, but I'm probably going to find myself forced to vote for the sellouts in Labour in case the Tories might win again. Stupid first past the post...
President Obama/American Policies: Obama has done some good things and some bad things, the latter mainly in foreign policy, but hey, at least we're rid of Bush. America as a whole, well, it should be more like Canada and Scandinavia. But then again, I generally say that the world would be better off the more it resembled Scandinavia.
Prostitution: Legal and regulated. Makes it easier to crack down on human rights abuses and forced prostitution, doesn't infringe on people's right to do what they want with their bodies.
Religion: Keep it the fuck away from the state, it's a private matter. Religious education should be voluntary, and education about a certain religion should only take place in a private institution. I wouldn't mind the idea of courses about the comparative study of religions, but they should still be private.
Social Security (Welfare): Welfare state for me. I like civilisation.
The UN: Needs reforms, and that's an understatement.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Not my thing, works for other people.
War on Terror: Horrible disaster. Should've ended after the invasion of Afghanistan, that one was at least vaguely justifiable. Fighting a war on terror makes about as much sense as declaring war on concepts.

Don't be deceived when our Revolution has finally been stamped out and they tell you things are better now even if there's no poverty to see, because the poverty's been hidden...even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which these new industries foist on you, and even if it seems to you that "you never had so much" - that is only the slogan of those who have much more than you.

Hallistar
random picture of myself
IM Contacts: thornsvald on steam (username, not display name), sulyaman on skype

Political Beliefs (i.e. name your ideology, if one applies): I wouldn't say just one in particular

Hallistar
Real Name: Not sure if I should give it out
Age: 18
Gender: Male
General Location: Saint Louis (Missouri)
General Political Affiliation [if any]: unsure
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: N/A
Where Did You Find NationStates?: I googled a nation simulator
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: The rss feed of machine man, first 40 pages or so
Professional Goal: Heading to an engineering university, unsure which specific field of it, but I'm also interested in other hard science fields..beyond that, I'm not really sure. I'll probably know more about what I want once I actually get to university
What is your favourite genre of music: Techno, metal, etc.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English, some spanish and some arabic (All thanks to the annoying foreign language requirements I have for high school and uni applications)
Other information: Might update as I remember

Abortion: For
Affirmative Action: Mixed/Unsure
Aid (International): Reformed to ensure the people intended for the money actually get it
Arms Trade: Unsure
Death Penalty: Mixed
Drones: Mixed
Drugs: Depends on which kind
Economic System: I'm not sure how to describe the ideal economic system I envision--a mix of capitalism and socialism but one in which everyone is relatively well-off and there is high income equality, yet efficient and productive.
Education: Free k-12, perhaps reformed, and as for university it should be somewhat subsidised based on degree and performance
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: I think it should be reformed or eliminated
Environmentalism: Mixed
Euthanasia: Carefully regulated, but should be an option for people who really want one due to a terminal illness like locked-in and stuff
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution
Gay Marriage: I'm not against it, I'm not an activist for it either, but I think the whole issue is stupid in the first place, since marriage is a secular contract that holds like 50% of your wealth hostage to the assets of a spouse and can screw you over in a divorce. So they should be able to get married if they want.
Gun Control: Mixed (I want to be able to buy a hand and shotgun for sure, as for things like fully/semi-automatics I do agree on slightly more restrictions, but not a full ban)
Immigration Policies: Mixed (I don't love waves of immigrants, but at the same time the countries they come from really are shitty and you often can't blame them for wanting to move)
Income Tax: Unsure/Mixed
Iran: I don't care too much about them.
Israel/Palestine: I don't necessarily like Israel, but I don't side with the islamic fundamentalist groups that are in palestine as well. My support leans more towards the palestinians, but I do see why Israel might do some things.
LGBTQ Rights: Which ones besides marriage?
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): A combination of nihilism, empiricism, transhumanism. I don't think life is 'beautiful', and neither do I think that the ups and downs and pains and etc of it somehow make it 'special'. I'm not some kind of depressed constantly cynical person or whatever in person, mostly i'm part of the 'treat others how you'd want them to treat you' camp (Unless someone's an asshole or a nutcase to you), but there are times when I am pessimistic/overtly analytical.
Political Party Affiliation: Unsure
President Obama/American Policies: He's not a savior or panacea, but I don't think any presidential candidate really could at this point in time radically improve everything. I hold a mixed opinion of Obama.
Prostitution: Mixed (Regulated)
Religion: Dislike
Social Security (Welfare): Mixed/Unsure
The UN: Mixed/Unsure
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Shouldn't be required, but if people want to go vegetarian as their choice then sure
War on Terror: Mixed/Unsure

Iran: A wretched hive of scum and villainy.
Israel/Palestine: The side that doesn't murder for political points.

Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Pick people up when they fall, but don't get pulled to the ground yourself.
Political Party Affiliation: GOP
President Obama/American Policies: He's a first rate buffoon. Unemployment is still high (don't believe the numbers, they don't count people who have stopped looking for work), we have a do-nothing government, it's like Jimmy Carter take two.
Prostitution: Too dangerous to be legal.
Religion: Can be a very positive force.
Social Security (Welfare): How about transforming it into an agency that ensures seniors won't go hungry/poor? As it stands it's too big for its britches.
The UN: Leave it, it's stupid.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I don't really have time to answer this question, I need to go dress a deer.
War on Terror: Should sweep across the Muslim world. I'm not saying that we should invade every Muslim country, we should maintain a presence throughout the entire region.

Don't be deceived when our Revolution has finally been stamped out and they tell you things are better now even if there's no poverty to see, because the poverty's been hidden...even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which these new industries foist on you, and even if it seems to you that "you never had so much" - that is only the slogan of those who have much more than you.

Other information: I am visually impaired

The Free Confederated Peoples of Korintar
Abortion: Pro choice all the way
Affirmative Action: I'm not sure about it
Aid (International): Would support, but I am not sure we can afford it at this time. We need to get our house in order first.
Arms Trade: The United States government should stop engaging in the arms trade itself if it wants its enemies to quit arming terrorists. As a global hegemon, the US must lead by example.
Death Penalty: Under certain, rare, circumstances, I do support it.
Drones: They are problematic. A useful tool of war, true, but they are morally problematic.
Drugs: Legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana, and loosen restrictions on others to do serious research into both positive and negative effects. Put a moratorium on criminal drug charges until more research has been done. If they (the illicit drugs) are as bad as people claim, then enforce the bans. If not, tax and regulate the other substances as well.
Economic System: abolish the private banks, replace it with a decentralized network of state owned, democratically controlled credit unions. Turn all corporations into worker or consumer owned cooperatives, with each store or factory or plant retaining a significant degree of autonomy.
Education: Needs reform, but privatization and market based methods are horrible approaches to it.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Abolish it, please!
Environmentalism: I am a "hook and bullet" environmentalist- I support environmental protection measures because I am a fisherman
Euthanasia: support
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: To use Kenneth Burke's pentadic formula:
Act: Creation of the Universe
Agent: God
Agency: Evolution and Big Bang
Setting: All around us
Purpose: To make His love manifest
Gay Marriage: Even though I regard homosexual behavior to be sinful, because that is what Scripture plainly teaches, I do not think it warrants the restrictions of civil rights for the LGBT community. We should show love to the marginalized, which includes the aforementioned community, by respecting their liberties and existence. To be honest, I believe that there should be no laws beyond age of consent regarding who can marry whom and how many at a given time. I support legalization of polygyny, polyandry, and polygynandry.
Gun Control: Support
Immigration Policies: We are a nation of immigrants. Immigration issues are extremely complicated- there is no one size fits all fix to it. Any insta-fix would ultimately be destructive, so care must be taken. I do believe that immigration restrictions should be simplified and loosened- after all, we permit the freeflow of capital- labor should be the same way.
Income Tax: We need to raise taxes (estate tax, capital gains tax, corporate income tax, and individual income tax) on the rich to generate revenue and cut taxes on the poor, including state and local sales tax whose primary burden is on the poor, to stimulate demand.
Iran: If we ignore them, they will go away.
Israel/Palestine: See also Iran. I am fully prepared to recognize both nations the day they recognize each other. Until then, they might as well be called the British Mandate of Canaan.
LGBTQ Rights: Support
Philosophy: In the debate between relativistic morality/reality and absolute morality/reality, I support the dialectical synthesis of the two.
Political Party Affiliation: Green
President Obama/American Policies: Did not vote for him, and I do not approve of everything he has done or supported, but he is better than Romney or Palin!
Prostitution: legalize and regulate, just like marijuana.
Religion: I am a religious person. I am a strong believer in religious pluralism and in encouraging diverse perspectives taking a center stage in civil society.
Social Security: Scrap the cap, don't privatize it. Expand Medicare to cover everyone as an NHS style universal healthcare system.
The UN: I support it, even if the US government which created it doesn't
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I have no problems with it. I eat meat, but I respect those who have decided it is not for them, for whatever reason.
War on Terror: We need to address the causes of terrorism, if we are to address how to end the use of violence as a political tool. Also, the actual war is practically over- we've decimated Al Qaeda, put their Taliban allies to flight, captured and killed their top leadership. Therefore, our mission is truly accomplished. Furthermore, much injustice has been committed in the name of protecting America from terrorists. We who are Americans are a nation in desperate need of repentance of our sins- our violence, our greed, our arrogance, our carelessness, our apathy, our lust, our boastfulness.

Don't be deceived when our Revolution has finally been stamped out and they tell you things are better now even if there's no poverty to see, because the poverty's been hidden...even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which these new industries foist on you, and even if it seems to you that "you never had so much" - that is only the slogan of those who have much more than you.

Maple Valley
Real Name: Tyler M
Age: 18

Professional Goal: Nurse Practioner.
What is your favourite genre of music: I really like everything but hard metal, of which I like the lyrics.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English, terrible at French.

Abortion: No opinion.
Affirmative Action: Yes; to an extent.
Aid (International): I'm aware that "teaching a man to fish" is a flawed philosophy, when the means to aquire a fishing rod, clean water, and fish don't even exist! I believe in aid until clear self suffiency is established.
Arms Trade: Yes, but morally opposed.
Death Penalty: No. The death penalty reduces human kind to the level of the murderer they want to judge.
Drones: Drones aren't the best. I oppose war, are drones are making war seem less serious.
Drugs: Yes to drug freedom; opposed personally.
Economic System: Capitalism mixed with socialism. I.E., what Canada has.
Education: Federally funded, in full.

Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution; creationalism is wrong, factually and morally.

Income Tax: Higher for the rich. There should be harsh penalties to thse who store money off shore.
Iran: Needs to be watched. Support the embargo. They have lied a lot, and supply neighbouring regions (i.e., israel) with weapons, and have no problem making their own.
Israel/Palestine: The battle for the holy land is disgusting. They both need to stop.
LGBTQ Rights: Yes; I actually think there should be something like Women-In-Crisis for LGBTQ people who are abused by their families.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Love for one another makes this world worth living.
Political Party Affiliation: NDP
President Obama/American Policies: Like Obama, but he is very slow. I approve of his handling of immigration as of yet, enjoy his tax policies, and democratic platform.
Prostitution: It should be legalized and run by the government, however, pimping should be illegal with extremely harsh penalties.
Religion: Agnostic. Hate fundamentalism.
Social Security (Welfare): Welfare, with the addition of free education in a field of demand, or re-training, available once.
The UN: Well intentioned, but slow.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Wish I had their will power.
War on Terror: Is a smoke screen.

Don't be deceived when our Revolution has finally been stamped out and they tell you things are better now even if there's no poverty to see, because the poverty's been hidden...even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which these new industries foist on you, and even if it seems to you that "you never had so much" - that is only the slogan of those who have much more than you.

Aid (International): I don't know how I feel about foreign aid.
Arms Trade: Governments should strictly regulate the trading and selling of weaponry.

Prostitution: I don't know how I feel about prostitution.
Religion: The US government should adopt a policy similar to Laïcité.

Where Did You Find NationStates?: Looking for Nation RP games
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No, but I do plan to
Professional Goal: My main "Professional" goal would be Writer/Director
What is your favourite genre of music: None I'm eclectic and like music for its merit not its genre, though if I really had to choose it'll be; Neofolk, Classical (plus Neo), DSBM, BM, Shoegaze/Dream Pop, Rock in general
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English


Abortion: Abortion rights are fundamental to feminism so yes I am for abortion.
Affirmative Action: Anti; AA is racism and I oppose racism. It also degrades society by accepting the inferior or mediocre over the superior for a job. P.S. And no the person getting a job due to AA is not mediocre or inferior due to race but themselves (as you can properly gather I do not believe in the "all men created equal" nonsense, people should be equal due to the state not propaganda lies of biology)
Aid (International): Giving money made by the workers of one nation to another nation? I oppose. However if the majority of the workers agree to such actions then ok.
Arms Trade: Anti
Death Penalty: Pro; the death penalty however should be decided by jury not judge
Drones: Anti
Drugs: Pro-Legalisation of all drugs
Economic System: State Controlled; haven't come to any absolute on my economic views (and I don't see the point in doing so unless theres a revolution) but they are certainly Socialistic/Communistic
Education: Free Public Education for Schools, Colleges and University.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Bad, voting in general needs a complete change
Environmentalism: Pro
Euthanasia: Pro; have no idea why this is still illegal
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution
Gay Marriage: Pro; why doesn't this come under LGBTQ Rights?
Gun Control: Pro; they should be tightly regulated and only those deemed fit (pass intelligence and mental tests) will be able to attain permits
Immigration Policies: Too much detail to describe Immigration, but basically I'm anti-immigration for cultural reasons e.g. I oppose religion therefore religious people shouldn't be allowed to immigrate, the sooner a nation becomes atheistic the better and this won't happen if religious people are continually allowed to immigrate.
Income Tax: People should be taxed proportionally to wages earned and the work done.
Iran: Should they be invaded? No
Israel/Palestine: Israel
LGBTQ Rights: People identifying as LGBTQ(A) are people therefore they should have the same "rights" as anybody else. Plus I'd be labelled as a "B" in that so of course I'd want the same rights as a person labelled as a heterosexual.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): My own
Political Party Affiliation: None
President Obama/American Policies: Obama is just the same as any other American president, he works for the capitalists not the American people. I'm not American, but I did a test and my vote would have been for Jill Stein of the Green Party apparently.
Prostitution: Legalised, regulated and controlled by the workers
Religion: Anti; the state should adopt anti-religion policies and tear down or convert (for good use) religious building. People of course should still be able to believe in religious nonsense but keep it in their homes
Social Security (Welfare): Pro; however I agree with Lenin: "He who does not work shall not eat"
The UN: Anti
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Humans are omnivores, people can eat what the hell they like but I will be a human and eat diversely.
War on Terror: What war on terror? I think you mean American Imperialism, of which I oppose.

Have you read any of Max Barry's books: No, although I'd like to read Jennifer Government.

Gun Control: In order to protect your family, you should be entitled to a pistol, a shotgun, and a rifle, as long as you are in good standing. If you need anything more than that to protect your family, you probably made a bad crack deal somewhere up the line...
Immigration Policies: If you want to enter the country legally, I have no qualms against that. I think that should be easy to do.

Don't be deceived when our Revolution has finally been stamped out and they tell you things are better now even if there's no poverty to see, because the poverty's been hidden...even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which these new industries foist on you, and even if it seems to you that "you never had so much" - that is only the slogan of those who have much more than you.

Of The Free Socialist Territories
Picture: Nope.
IM Contacts: Nope.

The Nation Pretitles Are Bourgeois of Of The Free Socialist Territories
Real Name: Fred
Age: 15 (as of November 2012)
General Location: North-East England
General Political Affiliation [if any]: Minarcho-socialism
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Atheism, but I strongly support secularism.
Where Did You Find NationStates?: Recommended by a friend.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Erm...erm...no.
Professional Goal: Does socialist revolutionary count?
What is your favorite genre of music: A combination of socialist R'n'B, Led Zeppelinesque rock, Nirvana, Bowie and modern British alternative.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English (native), French (basic/decent), German (pretty well), Spanish (beginner), Latin (not speaking, more studying as an academic subject with language-learning for written purposes included), Russian (well, I don't speak it, but I know the Cyrillic alphabet), Greek (learning the alphabet).
Other information: I have blue eyes. And an ushanka. And a trench coat.

Political Beliefs:
Abortion: Yes, it should be legal. Prevention is better, though.
Affirmative Action: Until we have a truly equal, colour-blind society, then yes.
Aid (International): Should be spent on infrastructure and education, and monitored by international observers, in tandem with the cancellation of "Third World" debt.
Arms Trade: No, it's capitalism at its worst. And that's saying something.
Death Penalty: No, there's too much risk of killing innocent people.
Drones: Despicable. Ban 'em.
Drugs: Marijuana should be legalised, while tobacco should be banned. Others (LSD and magic mushrooms in particular) should be legalised but closely monitored by the government.
Economic System: Communism with a teeny-tiny state providing the bare essentials, such as healthcare and utilities. Minarcho-socialism, in other words.
Education: Free, public education is best education. And this should continue up to and including university/college.
Electoral College in USA Elections: Not a bad idea, but the system should be made more proportional so that smaller parties are given a chance.
Environmentalism: Yes, it's important, we'll destroy the planet if we carry on the way we are.
Euthanasia: It should be legalised if the individual can give consent - courts should handle it on a case-by-case basis, however, to prevent another Harold Shipman.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: I like science, so evolution.
Gay Marriage: Yes!
Gun Control: Guns should be tightly regulated.
Immigration Policies: Asylum seekers, if they actually come from a country where their rights are in danger, should be welcomed and if possible helped to become functioning and content members of society. English-learning should be encouraged but immigrants should be encouraged to celebrate their own culture, provided that the aspects they celebrate are legal in the UK. Non-asylum-seeking immigrants should be allowed into the country if they're willing to work.
Income Tax: The rich must be taxed far more, proportionally, than the poor.
Iran: Their leaders are bad, but they'll be overthrown internally at some point. Any war will be bloody and destructive.
Israel/Palestine: Two-state solution is best state solution, although Gaza and the West Bank should be linked by the southern Negev.
LGBTQ Rights: They're people. They deserve equal rights to straight people.
Philosophy: Utilitarianism
Political Party Affiliation: N/A
President Obama/American Policies: The least worst man for the job. If I were American, I'd vote Green.
Prostitution: Should be legalised but regulated.
Religion: Secularism is best.
Social Security: Essential to halt capitalism's predatory instincts in their tracks.
The UN: Just the League of Nations, but with more guns. I'm not a fan.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Eat what you want, but I love my meat.
War on Terror: It's a cover for expansionism and quasi-neo-imperialism. Terrorists make a habit of blending in, and massive military force is not the solution.

Phocidaea
Picture:
Image

IM Contacts: None that I'd give you
Political Beliefs (i.e. name your ideology, if one applies): Liberal Democracy (Too generic? Too agreeable? So sue me.)

The Armed Republic of Phocidaea
Real Name: NOPE
Age: 16
Gender: Male
General Location: Michigan
General Political Affiliation [if any]: Center-left, "radical moderate"
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: "Fundie agnostic", as I've been called.
Where Did You Find NationStates?: TV Tropes
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Nope, though I intend to (but I can't find any at the library, and I'm too cheap to buy them)
Professional Goal: Something in the natural sciences, though I'm not entirely sure what.
What is your favourite genre of music: Progressive rock.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: Speaking: English, Writing: Latin, a little Spanish
Other information: Not really.

Abortion: I think it could be avoided if people were smarter, but I believe it's the woman's choice.
Affirmative Action: Firmly against; I believe credentials should always be put before arbitrary characteristics.
Aid (International): Not sure, I think it's a good idea but the US needs to reexamine where the aid's going.
Arms Trade: Worried, but not firmly against. On one hand I'd like to say it's just a market, but on the other hand arms dealers aren't exactly shiny happy people.
Death Penalty: For, but only for the worst crimes (i.e. serial or multiple rape/murder). I think Anders Breivik or James Holmes, for example, should get it, but not just some guy who shot some other guy in a fight.
Drones: For the idea, for their use in actually killing terrorists, dictators, etc. Against collateral damage and unrestricted use, so I suppose "against in their current form".
Drugs: For decriminalization of all drugs, but only for legalization of a few "soft" ones. I'd personally never touch them, but I'll let someone make the call for themself.
Economic System: Mixed-market, slight leftward inclination but not too much.
Education: Believe it needs more funding but also deeper reform. For increasing availability and rigor for everyone.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Mostly bad. A relic of an older time that cheapens free election.
Environmentalism: For technological/rational environmentalism, against primitivist/antiscientific/radical.
Euthanasia: Not sure. I suppose it should be legal, if someone is in horrible pain or whatever, but I don't want to open it up for anyone to go to the doc and say "I want to die".
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution. "Creationism" has no basis in science, and, as a religious ideology, has no place in the public sphere.
Gay Marriage: For (it's come to my attention recently, "Why the hell is it still illegal here?)
Gun Control: Neutral; I'm for the basic right to own guns but also for the government's right to restrict the type of gun/who owns it.
Immigration Policies: Reduce immigration requirements significantly, grandfather in most current illegals as legal, increase restrictions on post-requirement-change illegals.
Income Tax: Keep about where it is, increase a little on extremely wealthy people. Stay progressive.
Iran: Just kill the current regime, support revolutionaries, or something. I have nothing against the country, just the asshats in charge.
Israel/Palestine: Give Palestinians their land, give Israelis theirs, and tell both to man the fuck up.
LGBTQ Rights: For, I don't believe in discrimination based on sexual orientation.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Mixed; tends to swing a lot, but generally I believe everything is gradually improving, even if it's hard to tell.
Political Party Affiliation: None right now (too young to vote), aligned with the Democrats, although I will accept some of them are genuine assholes and there are a few good Republicans.
President Obama/American Policies: Mostly support what Obama has done so far; he's been disappointing on a few counts in his own right, but I also blame the House Republicans for not letting the Democrats get to anything constructive.
Prostitution: Legalize it, but don't expect it to ever be respectable.
Religion: Believe what you want, even if it is fucking retarded (and I think a lot of religions are), but keep it away from me and everyone will be happy.
Social Security (Welfare): Increase a little for people who really need it, crack down on abuses, and focus more on empowerment such as free job training.
The UN: For. Its ideals are good, even if it frequently sucks at living up to them.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: If you don't want tasty, nutritious meat protein, that's fine with me, but when you're talking to me don't bring it up.
War on Terror: Misguided, though I do accept that terrorism is something of a problem, I believe the government should focus more on "surgical strikes" and increased defense in areas that legitimately need it, instead of randomly shooting Muslims and molesting people at airports.

Abortion: Against, excepting when the mother’s life is in danger.
Affirmative Action: Against.
Aid (International): Depends on whether it will benefit my nation; typically against.

Death Penalty:
Support.
Drones:
Apply liberally.
Drugs:
Legalise marijuana—other than that, against.

Education:
Centralise it; massively increase funding; expand federal service academies.

Evolution or Creation?:
Original Creation, evolution from there; in the sense that dogs came from wolves, but cows did not come from whales.
Gay Marriage: Support.
Gun Control:
Only the barest restrictions, such as prohibition of violent criminals, the mentally disabled, and children from obtaining firearms. Legalise automatic weapons, high-capacity magazines, everything.
Immigration Policies:
Strict selectivity in immigrants; only persons beneficial to the nation should be allowed entrance.

Declare war and bomb them into submission. Install dictatorial, America-friendly puppet government.

Machiavellianism, with a healthy dose of Kantianisn.

Christiantity; Protestantism; Calvinism.
Social Security:
Support; direct more funding toward helping people find jobs.

Don't be deceived when our Revolution has finally been stamped out and they tell you things are better now even if there's no poverty to see, because the poverty's been hidden...even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which these new industries foist on you, and even if it seems to you that "you never had so much" - that is only the slogan of those who have much more than you.

Abortion: Legal, safe, and rare.
Affirmative Action: Meh.
Aid (International): Meh.
Arms Trade: Uhh, fuck no.
Death Penalty: Ban it, it's a huge waste of money.
Drones: In theory they're OK, but most of the time they just cause unnecessary civilian deaths.
Drugs: Weed should be legalized. "Hard drugs" like meth, heroin, cocaine, etc. should be kept illegal.
Economic System: Mixed economy with a strong welfare state.
Education: Cut down on class sizes, abolish the BS standardized tests implemented by NCLB.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Abolish it and replace it with a national popular vote.
Environmentalism: It's a good thing.
Euthanasia: If that's what the person wants, then I can't stop them.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution.
Gay Marriage: Legalize it nationwide.
Gun Control: Stronger policies, with background checks and prevention of the mentally ill from using weapons.
Immigration Policies: Make it easier for people to come here legally, and focus on integrating legal immigrants.
Income Tax: Taxes on the rich should be raised; they're getting away with too much as it is now.
Iran: Fuck the government, but let's not pull Iraq 2.0 here.
Israel/Palestine: I support Palestine.
LGBTQ Rights: Supportive, if you couldn't tell by my stance on gay marriage.
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Mildly cynical.
Political Party Affiliation: See "General political affiliation" above.
President Obama/American Policies: Meh. He's OK.
Prostitution: Legal and regulated.
Religion: Whatever. As long as the cuckoos don't end up with a crapload of power a la Iran or Taliban Afghanistan, I'm cool with it.
Social Security (Welfare): Keep it around for now.
The UN: It's a slightly stronger League of Nations. I'm not a fan.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Doesn't bother me.
War on Terror: A waste of time. You can't fight an idea.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English


Quintium
Picture: No recent picture of me exists.
IM Contacts: Not so fast.
Political Beliefs (i.e. name your ideology, if one applies): No clear-cut ideology

The Kingdom of Quintium
Real Name: Quentin
Age: 19
General Location: Netherlands
General Political Affiliation [if any]: n/a
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: n/a
Where Did You Find NationStates?: From someone I knew, 2007.
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Books?
Professional Goal: Head of public prosecution. If that fails, lawyer or general jurist.
What is your favourite genre of music: Classic rock, classical music, Irish rebel music.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: Dutch, French, German.
Other information: Oh, no.

Abortion: Semantically speaking, I do think it's murder. It should be treated in non-emergency cases like we treat infanticide.
Affirmative Action: An absolute disgrace to society. Affirmative action is discrimination under a different name.
Aid (International): Bad idea; you create an artificial society that is bound to collapse. Look at Ethiopia, with massive population growth even during famines.
Arms Trade: Regimes that can be held responsible should be sold arms.
Death Penalty: Against from idealism, but pragmatically - why not?
Drones: Cowardly. If you want to kill someone, risk death. Don't be a video game coward.

Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: No idea - looks like a generally awful system.
Environmentalism: Skeptic.
Euthanasia: Fine if the patient makes the choice by himself.
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Evolution.
Gay Marriage: I'm a proponent of a system where we finally decide on marriage. A) Extend it to everyone and make it secular or B) Let religious organisations decide and abolish marriage as a legal thing.
Gun Control: Firearms should be regulated, but not kept away from the people. If the police are corrupt racist bastards, why would anyone want to arm only them?
Immigration Policies: Restrictive. Immigration in itself is fine, but only from compatible cultures and if there is a need here.
Income Tax: Simplified progressive income tax with no tax breaks for anyone.
Iran: I know the naughty zionists want to, and frankly I wouldn't care if they did.
Israel/Palestine: Israel. They're the only functioning democracy with human rights and a proper standard of life in the entire region. Palestine, on the other hand, has antisemitic laws in force. Being a European who's extremely annoyed by my government bending to Islam, I'd prefer the devil who's on my side, and that's Israel.
LGBTQ Rights: Go ahead - but biological sex still needs to be noted in official records.
Philosophy: We're all here to reproduce and spread our way of thinking.
Political Party Affiliation: PVV for European Parliament, SP for national parliament and SGP for local elections.
President Obama/American Policies: Obama is worse than Bush. Obama is doing the same thing, worse at times, and he's actually getting away with it.
Prostitution: Regulate, tax. The only way for me to get laid.
Religion: Anti-Islam, against fundamentalist anything, and secular.
Social Security: Only for those who need it.
The UN: Good intentions, horrible results.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: Hippies. Don't like 'em, but I'll eat more meat to counter them.
War on Terror: We need to stop focusing on the rest of the world and defend our own countries.

R

Radiatia
Picture:
Image

IM Contacts: I don't do that there IMing business
Political Beliefs (i.e. name your ideology, if one applies): Progressive Conservative

The Federation of Radiatia
Real Name: Alex
Age: 23
Gender: Male
General Location: Auckland, New Zealand
General Political Affiliation [if any]: Progressive Conservative. Disillusioned former member of the Labour Party.
General Religious Affiliation [if any]: Agnostic Atheist. Disillusioned former Christian.
Where Did You Find NationStates?: No idea. I think it was by typing the wrong address to a website one day. (This is not "Nakedbabes.com" apparently...)
Have you read any of Max Barry's books: Yes. I've read all of them except for "Syrup" which I seem unable to find a copy of.
Professional Goal: None at this point in time.
What is your favourite genre of music: Metal, but I'm also fond of techno and dubstep.
Which languages you can speak and/or write in: English. I used to speak a little bit of German and Japanese but have forgotten both.
Other information: I was a stand-up comedian once upon a time. But then I stopped finding things funny, and stopped finding stand-up enjoyable. So I stopped.

Abortion: I don't like abortion at all. Unfortunately it needs to be legal, because the consequences of banning it are ultimately worse.
Affirmative Action: Absolutely against.
Aid (International): For, provided the money isn't being used to prop up corrupt or dictatorial regimes.
Arms Trade: Against
Death Penalty: For, but only for recidivists. Everyone should have at least once chance to be rehabilitated. After that, they're a waste of society's time and money.
Drones: For
Drugs: Against. Except medicinal drugs obviously. They should be subsidised.
Economic System: Mixed-Market Capitalism
Education: Should be free for everyone, and of the same high quality. Nothing is more important than education - if you have to privatise healthcare, the police, the army, and scrap the welfare system, so be it. But not a cent should ever be dropped from the education budget. It's too important.
Electoral College in USA Elections - Good? Bad? Needs reforming?: Seems fine to me, but I'm not American and don't really get the whole 'federalism' thing.
Environmentalism: Moderately for. We need to conserve and protect our natural resources and the environment, but I'm not overly passionate on the subject.
Euthanasia: For
Evolution or Creation (or both)?: Scientific facts only. (Evolution).
Gay Marriage: For
Gun Control: Strongly for
Immigration Policies: Need to be tightened. Immigrants should come either to fill a gap in the market, or else to create jobs. Instead we're just letting any old uneducated idiot from Thirdworldastan come in, undercut everyone else in the unskilled workers market, and ultimately causing a decline in our standard of living.
Income Tax: I think it needs to be flat, and if not that then certainly it needs to be simplified a lot.
Iran: Evil, disgusting theocratic regime. But then America shouldn't have been supporting the regime of the Shah before that. So the yanks have no one but themselves to blame for Iran.
Israel/Palestine: Two state solution.
LGBTQ Rights: For
Philosophy (what's your philosophical outlook?): Nihilist
Political Party Affiliation: Former member of the New Zealand Labour Party, left because it's gone from being the party of the working classes to being the party of angry feminazis, angry minorities and university graduates who have never worked an honest day in their lives. Currently politically neutral, will probably vote for John Key next year.
President Obama/American Policies: I try not to look at American politics. I have zero tolerance for stupid people, and American politics involves a lot of stupid people. I'm not a fan of Obama, but he's the least bad option. He certainly isn't left-wing as people claim he is - he's more right-wing than Richard Nixon.
Prostitution: For
Religion: Against. Well, okay, people should be free to believe what they want, so long as it doesn't negatively impact others.
Social Security (Welfare): For, although the welfare system needs to be modernised.
The UN: A for Effort, F for Results. The UN needs to be given broader powers. Much broader powers.
Veganism/Vegetarianism: I wouldn't eat as much meat as I do if it wasn't for vegetarians. While most vegetarians keep to themselves, the more evangelical ones annoy me so much that I eat extra meat to spite them.
War on Terror: I'm actually for it. Terrorism needs to be stopped. Now, the current methods being used to wage the war on terror aren't going to get us anywhere but getting rid of the Taliban and Saddam Hussein certainly isn't a bad thing. What is bad is the failure to create order and properly rebuild in Iraq and Afghanistan in the post invasion years
