Your Nation's Political Orientation

Postby Volnotov » Mon Apr 12, 2010 2:18 pm

A simple poll about your nation's Political Orientation.

It's fairly simple,

Left Wing, Authoritarian - Heavily regulated, or even state-owned economy. Authoritarian as in - The state interfering daily into the lives of the people, having little to no political freedoms and civil rights, or the government frequently "taking care" of opposers of the regime and the people(as in - being dragged into a black van, being tortured and then at the end have your remains fed to the pigs).

Right Wing, Authoritarian - Oppressive regime, interfering daily into the lives of people, civil rights and political freedoms are frequently suppressed. Corruption can also be a major problem, and large companies are frequently put above the law, and oh - it isn't rare for the government to evict people from their homes to make place for malls and/or huge industrial complexes, forests and national wildlife reserves are frequently bulldozed and scorched to the ground and ethnic, religious, political and other minority groups that stand in the way are frequently executed. These nations can also be very conservative and religious.

Left Wing, Libertarian - Somewhat regulated economy, but the people are left alone in their personal lives and have allot of political and civil rights and freedoms. Often very liberal with a great deal of empathy for minorities. They are firm believers in freedom and when someone even tries to disrespect their privacy and civil rights then it's not uncommon to be called a "Nazi".

Right Wing, Libertarian - Capitalism all the way, these nations also enjoy a wide variety of civil and political freedoms. They believe people should leave each other alone and that the government should not interfere with the free-market or the personal lives of people. Usually characterized by their love for small governments and low to no taxes. Anarchies also fall into this category.

Centrist - A Jack Of All Trades. They enjoy a nice set of both civil and political freedoms although not too much, and they have a relatively free economy, although not too free. Inoffensive Centrist Democracies fall into this category.

Centrist, Left Wing - Same as above, although these nation's tend to have a somewhat higher then average regulated economy.

Centrist, Authoritarian - Well, same as centrist, although these nations tend to have governments that do not really like opposition and don't mind to ignore the personal freedoms and rights of the people.

Centrist, Right Wing - This nation is relatively more capitalist then the other nations, with average political and civil rights.

Centrist, Libertarian - Liberal paradise? Anyone? A very free and tolerant nation, although they are somewhat suspicious about big corporations, the government and other organizations that they believe are interfering with their personal lives and they usually refer to these as "fascists" as soon as they try to violate their privacy, civil rights or political freedoms.

By your definitions, we're closest to Left Wing Libertarian - but we don't consider our economy to be "somewhat regulated". The only way the government intervenes in the economy is by recognizing the workers' right to own the means of production. So, if the workers in a factory decide to take it over, the former "owner" has no legal recourse.

Other than that, most Right Wing Capitalist nations have more regulation of the economy than we do.

Well, Labour Laws/Rights are left wing.

In capitalist economics there is no "workers' right to own the means of production".

So yes, your country is left wing, in a real capitalist economy the state wouldn't intervene in the economy at all.

EDIT: Well, what options should I add?(There is a limit of 10 and I have 9 :S)

I know we're left wing and we're definitely not capitalist. I'm just saying that we have less regulation than most right-wingers and capitalists.

Examples?

(Because if they are regulating the economy with laws, taxes, consumer rights, labour laws, ect. Then they are not capitalist as that would be against the principles of capitalism.

That is the problem with such scales as these. So many nations do not stick with the more traditional molds. Too many differences.

I'm having trouble placing my nation into one of those categories even with the descriptions provided.

What would you say, an absolute monarchy with good civil freedoms but no political freedoms who pretty generally only interposes itself in people's lives when the matter has a significant effect on the group as opposed to the individual, for the most part free trade as well but not opposed to kicking a company off its high horse?

Yea, this was a problem when creating the poll because I am limited to 10 options max.

I am also not sugesting that each nation fits into the description, I would sugest that people vote for the option that they have the biggest resemblance to.

An obvious example would be prohibitions of any kind, especially drugs, which is a sizeable sector of many economies. Any kind of War on Drugs would be interference in the economy. Social authoritarianism often gets in the way of economic freedom.

I get your point,

Altough I would say that is more an authoritarian issue then a right wing issue.

As it focusses on personal freedoms.

I would say legalisation of drugs is libertarian/liberal and prohibitation of the use of drugs is authoritarian.

Legalising drugs would make a nation slighty right wing and very libertarian/liberal, while prohibiting the use/sale of drugs would be very authoritarian and slightly left wing.

I agree. I was focusing on those nations who claim to believe in unregulated capitalism but who actually do regulate business indirectly through social authoritarianism.

Mid Lothian would be Left Wing, Libertarian. And has been since the Progressive Mid Lothian party rose to power in 2002's General Election (and won a third term in office on Friday).
Please note that Mid Lothian is based on fantasy. Any references to anything/one/where that exists is completely coincidential.
Frequently used abbreviations: HoS = Head of State; HoG = Head of Government; ML = Mid Lothian; KSS - Kate Stephens-Smith.
Fancy an embassy in ML? Click me for details. (PS - I'll return the favour.)
I am usually rewriting stuff about Mid Lothian - just because it's true today isn't necessarily true tomorrow.

Warning - Full-time Grammar Nazi at work. You have been warned. (I guess that's due to my mum being an English teacher. Also, don't use masculine words to describe me - my name is Rebecca, which is clearly a feminine name.)
