RL nations and government type

Postby WokaStates » Fri Dec 31, 2010 8:18 am

What government type do you think real life nations would have if they were on NS?

I'll start with some:

North Korea: Father Knows Best state
Iran/Libya: Psychotic Dictatorship
USA: New York times Democracy
Turkey: Moralistic Democracy/Conservatist Democracy
Greece: Corporate Police State
China: Iron Fist consumerism
Sweden/ Findland: Scandinavian Liberal Paradise
Denmark: Social Democracy
Russia: Father Vladimir Knows Best state

Definition:
Free trade, free market, not-so-free merchandise. Civil rights are moderate; political rights are generous


Now, this is possible, but this...

Citizens are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

That's not true! That's impossiiiblleeee!
we, unlike the bourgeoisie, have nothing to lose and therefore our expression will be the only honest one, our words will be the only challenging ones and our art will be the one revolutionary expression. We need new noise and new voices and new canvases to become something more than the last poets of a useless generation.

Aye, and even then people like yourself (you're from Birmingham aren't you?) show that it's not correct.
