Antaros Similarity Index

Official Program from the Republic of Antaros
Antaros Similarity Index

What is the Antaros Similarity Index?
The Antaros Similarity Index (ASI) is an initiative set up by the Antaran government, currently led by President Joseph Gordons and his left-wing federal party. The index gives an initial impression about countries likely or not likely to harbor similar ideals as Antaros. This index is overseen by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Despite what the name might suggest, the ASI actually estimates a country's divergence from Antaran standards. This means that the greater the score received by a country, the more different (in general) it is from Antaros (in how it runs government, how its society fundamentally operates, etc.). Therefore, it may be possible that a near-utopian country diverges from Antaran standards as much as a totalitarian country, depending on the circumstances involved.

As Antaros is a peaceful country, the ASI helps identify countries where standards are substantially different from what are seen in Antaros. Therefore, it helps the Antaran government by narrowing down the list of countries that may require more diplomatic dialogue or greater bilateral cooperation - or perhaps may be a suitable target for cultural exchange programs.

How does the ASI work?
ASI scores are calculated to two decimal places with the help of a questionnaire provided below. There are five themes (Governmental, Sociocultural, Economic, Environmental and DIplomatic) with five questions each, and all 25 questions involve giving an answer using a scale of 0 to 10. 0 represents some minimum while 10 represents some maximum. For example, one of the questions ask about the independence of the judiciary, so 0 means that it is completely under your government's control and 10 means it is a completely-independent branch of the government.

Once the questionnaire has been filled out, the responses would be compared against the standards observed or upheld in Antaros. Then a formula with a lot of liberal bias of high sophistication would be used to calculate an arbitrary numerical value, which would suggest how different from Antaros a country is. As mentioned earlier, the greater this score is, the greater the general difference between the country and Antaros.

As an example, Antaros or a perfect Antaran replicate would have a score of 0.00. The United States of America would have a score of 19.09 and North Korea would have a score of 342.78. Due to the sophistication of the formula, the calculated values may be rounded up or down to give the final values seen just earlier.

Why can a dictatorship be more similar to Antaros than a presidential republic?
Antaros is indeed a presidential republic, but it doesn't mean that it is inherently similar to other presidential republics. The questionnaire involves multiple fields and thus involves multiple ways in which a country may have standards or conditions similar to those in Antaros.

A dictatorship may differ significantly from Antaros because of how its government is run, but it could be compared to Antaros in other ways, such as having good environmental policies, reasonably-high taxes and decent economic opportunities for various people. Conversely, a presidential republic could be very peculiar if, for example, it is very aggressive (i.e. not very diplomatic) and its society doesn't take foreigners very kindly. Basically, different factors can affect how similar to/different from Antaros a country is, regardless of its government or ruling group.

But I don't like my score!
Unfortunately, there are constraints in the ASI, which requires that your country's standards and values be compared and contrasted with what is true or observed in Antaros. The ASI also requires the use of the sophisticated formula which also has its own limits. In addition, the ASI's questions are concerned with general details about your country, and does not really go into too much depth about a particular field.

If the score is not desirable, don't worry too much about it. It is NOT meant to prove that your country has great living standards/human rights records or otherwise, but rather indicate how different your country is compared to another country (in this case, Antaros). The ASI is more or less an tool that assigns arbitrary values and maps out, in some way, how varied countries can be in this great realm.

Additional Notes
  • Decimal values (e.g. 6.5) are permitted, but avoid giving overly-specific values (e.g. it's better to give 6.25 than to give 6.2495; besides, it's easier to round it up, isn't it?). If overly-specific values are given for a question, I will simply round them up or down depending on whichever is more appropriate.
  • In the event that a numerical answer is not or cannot be given to a question, an arbitrary value of 5 will be assigned for that question.
  • If a range of values is given (e.g. 2-5) for a question, I will use an arbitrary value by finding the average (in this case, 3.5).
  • If multiple values are given for a question but not enough specification is given, I will arbitrarily decide which value to use.
tl;dr
Fill out the questionnaire below and I'll give you an idea about how different from Antaros your country is.

Antaros Summary AND List of Nations and Scores

Postby Antaros » Fri Nov 16, 2018 4:46 pm

Antaros Summary
Antaros is an island nation currently led by President Joseph Gordons, both as its head of state and head of government. The country is known for being highly-developed and for well-established systems, including but not limited to:
  • a well-funded education system, with free primary, secondary and post-secondary education available
  • a single-payer national health care system, including universal prescription scheme and free dental coverage
  • advanced public transportation, such as a national monorail system
  • extensive rights and protection for workers, employees and consumers, as well as powerful labor unions
  • generous welfare system and social safety nets
  • strict environmental regulations, to protect the biodiversity, ecosystem and unique species of Antaros
Oh dear! The Antaran government is predominantly left-wing, so much so that it is at times accused of being socialist; the country still has a capitalist economy (and it also has an undeniable population of non-left-wing people). The country boasts a liberal culture defined by feminism, multiculturalism, environmental responsibility and a good degree of agnosticism, although there is still a significant Christian root in Antaran culture. The well-established, generous systems mentioned earlier are compensated for with various factors (e.g. high GDP, high taxes, noticeable technological edge, minuscule military, small population).

Antaros is a modern-tech nation, with some light PMT elements permitted. However, any nations can fill out the questionnaire and be scored.

tl;dr
Antaros is a quasi-socialist nanny state.

On a scale of 0-10, how independent is the judiciary in your country?: 10, the judiciary is completely independent.

On a scale of 0-10, how fair are political processes in your country in general? (e.g. how often do they occur without political corruption?): 9, no system is perfect and free of corruption, but Arthropol's electoral system is very fair and has low corruption

SOCIOCULTURAL
On a scale of 0-10, how well are foreign cultures or minorities tolerated/accepted by your country's society?: This varies among people, and there is no general national opinion.

On a scale of 0-10, how much does your country's culture uphold religious and/or moral values?: 3, some public holidays have religious meaning, but people are expected to not be religious in public and there is strong emphasis on secularism.

On a scale of 0-10, how harshly does your country's society respond to crime in general?: 3, we believe in rehabilitation to become a productive member of society over punishment.

On a scale of 0-10, how emphasized is individualism in your country's culture?: 5, some aspects of the culture are considered individualist, while some parts of the culture are considered collectivist.

Private schools and universities also must teach the state mandated curriculum, but most private schools are either boarding schools, foreign-language schools (for diplomats, expats, etc.) or religious schools. Private schools usually charge a small fee.

ECONOMIC
On a scale of 0-10, how extensive is your country's welfare system or social safety net?: 9-10, extensive welfare

On a scale of 0-10, how difficult is it to climb the socioeconomic ladder in your country?: 2

On a scale of 0-10, how protected are the workers and employees in your country?: 10, unions are strong and workers have significant rights

On a scale of 0-10, how equally-available are economic opportunities in your country? (e.g. consider if two candidates of the same ability but different sociocultural backgrounds have equal chances of obtaining the same job): 10, workplaces are not allowed to discriminate based on personal factors unless necessary to the job (e.g. a movie needs an male actor for a role and a female gets denied for not being male).

ENVIRONMENTAL
On a scale of 0-10, how committed are your country's citizens to protecting the national environment?: 10

On a scale of 0-10, how reliant is your country on fossil fuels?: 2, all electricity is produced through clean sources, and all land transportation except a few examples use electricity or other clean sources. However, there are still petrol stations for cars driving in from bordering countries, but the price is high. Fossil fuels are still in use in aircraft and ships.

On a scale of 0-10, how well-balanced are environmental priorities and economic priorities?: 10, we tie in both to get both productivity and environmental conservation (e.g. instead of selling fossil fuel cars, we will instead sell electric cars to both keep the environment clean and make money).

On a scale of 0-10, how much of a national threat is climate change as perceived by your government and/or citizens?: 10

On a scale of 0-10, how interested are your country's citizens in resource management (e.g. water conservation, pollution reduction)?: Varies individually.

DIPLOMATIC
On a scale of 0-10, how interventionist is your country's government?: 0, we are a neutral country, as specified by our constitution. We are not allowed to declare war until attacked first. We are active diplomatically and stand up for our beliefs, but we don't try impose them on other countries.

On a scale of 0-10, how much of its foreign policy does your country's government base on human rights? (e.g. does your country extensively look into another's human rights records when conducting diplomacy?): Heavily depends on the specific human right and what we're trying to do.

On a scale of 0-10, how prepared is your country to use military force for purposes other than national defense or peacekeeping operations?: 0. We have the power to, but we won't, unless it's a counter-attack in retaliation for an attack on us.

On a scale of 0-10, how well does your country's government abide by international conventions?: 9, we usually abide by international conventions and laws, except in a few cases.

On a scale of 0-10, how much diplomatic measures would your country's government generally undertake before it resorts to military action? (10 would mean total pacifism or complete attempt to exhaust all possible non-military options): If nobody is attacking us, then we will not attack them. If someone is attacking us, we will try a diplomatic option before defending/counter-attacking.

Some trivia:
I recently tested the allegedly-sophisticated ASI formula with a sample hell, or a country with standards as far away from that of Antaros's as possible. The sample hell obtained a score of 6903.99, or rounded up to 6904, and I believe this is the maximum score any country can have when taking part in the ASI.

What are NS stats? :thinking:

This nation does NOT represent my political views!

A tier 24 civilization, according to this index.



Based in a fascist meme universe. No, this is not a serious nation. Uses real time, the current year is 2018.
A continually pissed-off high school student who needs the internet more than oxygen to live. Probably a messed up social democrat. OOC Information.
None yet.


NEWS: Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, government policies change at the drop of a rabbit, city-dwellers are forcibly moved to farming communes in the countryside, and high school career advisors advise belligerent loners to consider vigilantism.

Nation Name: ''The Syndicalist Republics of Silver Commonwealth.''
Government Type: ''Totalitarian, decentralized world government.''

GOVERNMENTAL
On a scale of 0-10, how much say do your people have in your country's government?: ''0. Government is very authoritarian, and Party sometimes is very distanced from the common populace.''

On a scale of 0-10, how much more political rights does the dominant group have compared to other minorities?: ''7. Although minorities have their own parties, which serve as a representation for them, they are often subordinates to other, larger parties, which in the end are loosely connected in one superparty. Also, outside from their regions, minorities have lesser say, as they are often grouped together in Commonwealth State representative meetings in New York.''

On a scale of 0-10, how well-treated are political opposition groups in your country?: ''1. We threat dissenters with no mercy, although we have given concessions to a few groups, which expressed interest to work in the government.''

On a scale of 0-10, how independent is the judiciary in your country?: ''0. It is controlled by the State.''

On a scale of 0-10, how fair are political processes in your country in general? (e.g. how often do they occur without political corruption?): ''2. Corruption is still a large issue in SC, even after the reforms, and political groups within the government can often put obstacles in the way.''

SOCIOCULTURAL
On a scale of 0-10, how well are foreign cultures or minorities tolerated/accepted by your country's society?: ''5. As SC is a world government, it can't just ignore the various ethnic groups, so it has created special regions for them to govern relatively autonomously, and Commonwealth States are picked to be led by some of the groups, that SC considers to be ''more trusting than others''. However, locals are usually very negative on those, who live outside their designated areas.''

On a scale of 0-10, how much does your country's culture uphold religious and/or moral values? (i.e. your country's dominant religious/moral values): ''9. We are highly religious, and religious values are often enforced by government, and religious institutions are a part of it, but we have a small, yet significant atheist percent as well.''

On a scale of 0-10, how harshly does your country's society respond to crime in general?: ''8. We don't tolerate criminals, and punishments can be harsh even for minor crimes.''

On a scale of 0-10, how emphasized is individualism in your country's culture?: ''0. We are collectivist to our core, and individualism is mostly shunned, and emphasis is put on collective instead.''

On a scale of 0-10, how equally-available are educational opportunities in your country? (e.g. consider opportunities for the dominant group and opportunities for minorities): ''2.''

ECONOMIC
On a scale of 0-10, how extensive is your country's welfare system or social safety net?: ''5. While it provides some safety, it isn't its main priority, and he can often ease it, if it wants so.''

On a scale of 0-10, how difficult is it to climb the socioeconomic ladder in your country?: ''7.''

On a scale of 0-10, how much taxes, tariffs and/or duties does your country impose:? ''8. Government often taxes both companies, and people a lot, because it needs tons of money to function.''

On a scale of 0-10, how protected are the workers and employees in your country?: ''5. While State controls its companies a lot, and economy is a planned one, labor unions are under state's control as well, so it can screw both companies, and workers, if it wants so.''

On a scale of 0-10, how equally-available are economic opportunities in your country? (e.g. consider if two candidates of the same ability but different sociocultural backgrounds have equal chances of obtaining the same job): ''2. Situation might differ, depending on the region, but there often are very big problems in this case.''

ENVIRONMENTAL
On a scale of 0-10, how committed are your country's citizens to protecting the national environment?: ''6.''

On a scale of 0-10, how reliant is your country on fossil fuels?: ''4. Although a large part of our fuel is still fossil fuel, we have experimented with nuclear energy, and other green fuels, in order to switch to them completely in future, because we know well, that fossil fuels are finite.''

On a scale of 0-10, how well-balanced are environmental priorities and economic priorities?: ''5. Government is somewhat environmentalist, as it is highly nationalistic, and believes, that ''environment should be every nationalist's concern'', but at the same time, it wants to use the benefits of industry as well.''

On a scale of 0-10, how much of a national threat is climate change as perceived by your government and/or citizens?: ''6. Government knows, that temperatures are rising, and tries to prevent it, because it could potentially lead to unrest, and collapse. Citizens are mildly concerned.''

On a scale of 0-10, how interested are your country's citizens in resource management (e.g. water conservation, pollution reduction)?: ''8. In fact, recently government has started to teach it in schools, and also has started a compulsory campaign, in order to try to fix the mistakes, that previous leaders in charge had made in the past.''

DIPLOMATIC
On a scale of 0-10, how interventionist is your country's government?: ''10. We have been at war during almost all of our foundation years, but now we are a world government, which has been created after a world conquest. So, yeah, we are very interventionist.''

On a scale of 0-10, how much of its foreign policy does your country's government base on human rights? (e.g. does your country extensively look into another's human rights records when conducting diplomacy?): ''0. SC's human rights records are terrible themselves, so it wouldn't make sense for it to base diplomacy on them.''

On a scale of 0-10, how prepared is your country to use military force for purposes other than national defense or peacekeeping operations?: ''10. Our army currently is fully operational, and can be deployed on any corner of the Earth. It hasn't ventured in space yet, but when it will, it will be able to be deployed on other planets too.''

On a scale of 0-10, how well does your country's government abide by international conventions?: ''0. In fact, we are a world government, and there are no other countries left on our Earth, and we haven't encountered any nations in space yet, so we only abide to our conventions, if we have any, because we don't tend to limit ourselves in this case. We have created Pax Americana of the world, if it can be said like that.''

On a scale of 0-10, how much diplomatic measures would your country's government generally undertake before it resorts to military action? (10 would mean total pacifism or complete attempt to exhaust all possible non-military options): ''5. Of course, we would try to solve the issue with diplomatic negotiations (which in long term would result in integration, and absorbing of the state in the Commonwealth, or at least forcing it into a pact), but we can turn fast to use military means as well.''

In SC, with ''republican'' we mean this, not this

A purposefully crapsack nation, any of its ideologies doesn't represent my views
