Assessing Average IQ of a Nation: Updated by suggestion

Postby Independence Hill » Tue Jul 21, 2020 12:07 am

IQ: (√((HDI + Intelligence) x Productivity Score) / 100) + ECS = IQ


(HDI + Intelligence) x Productivity Score = (x)

√(x) / 100 = y

y + Economic Classification Score = IQ.

66.29 + 40.65 = 106.94

106.94 x 20,000 = 2,138,800

√(2,138,800) = 1,462.46367476

1,462.46367476 / 100 = y or 14.6246367476

14.6246367476 + 110 = 124.6246367476

210.05, or just 200 if we go by the limits you set out earlier.

That comes from:
HDI: 93.11
Intelligence: 116.94
Republic of Drongonia | The MT powerhouse of the Pacific. | NationStates Flag Bracket #1 - 2nd, 4th, AND 7th place!

206.8, or 200 following the limit rule. It makes sense for Kuuj, considering we have a world-class education system with free college for everyone, and individualized attention readily available for anyone who needs it. The pursuit of knowledge is considered a cornerstone of Kuujian society... And with manual labor jobs becoming fully automated now, Kuujians are free to pursue careers in science, technology, education, arts and culture. Advances in cybernetics and genetic engineering technology, and the development of brain-computer interface technology may soon allow average Kuujians to truly unlock the full potential of their minds.

My region is a functioning nation. Nations within are States. We have a Federal, State, and City level of dealing with issues. I measure economic gain and loss everyday. I get all my data of NSDossier and NationStates Trends. We have a strong currency and we're looking for more States.

Exactly as you asked... but well over 200. Also not very realistic.

85.72 (HDI) + 126.05 (QPH) = 211.77. Hm, looks like Einstein would be average at best in Lillorainen ...

But then again, someone earning 300,000$ a year would be 'average at best' in Lillorainen as well, if NS stats are anything to go by.
Since Lillorainen's geography is currently being overhauled a 'tiny' bit, most information on it posted before December 12, 2018, is not entirely reliable anymore. Until there's a new, proper factfile, everything you might need to know can be found here. Thank you. #RetconOfDoom (Very late update, 2020/08/30 - it's still going on ...)

According to this, Skyhookedian folks, that drunk and high happy bunch with guns has average IQ of 200. Because Intelligence alone is 214.11, which exceeds the maximum.

Not bad for a post apocalypticesque bunch of armed hippies, huh?

Yeah see, I don't think OP really thought this idea out much, mostly because, you know, in reality an average IQ is always around 100 (and most people will have an IQ in the range of 85 and 115), that's kind of how the IQ test is designed, ya dig?

Psychotic Dictatorship

Postby VlaRiSsiA » Tue Jul 21, 2020 7:39 pm

Our average IQ is apparently a mere 60.46. Probably because our totalitarian brainwashing makes our citizens not have the mental capability of individual thought and freedom in order to maintain a uniform, ignorant populace that functions in absolute conformity.
VlaRiSsiA is a Shrekist Theocratic Totalitarian Juche^2 Hereditary Dictatorship created after the Great Ogrethrow in 2094. Has a massive WIP multi-nation lore- working currently on its most prominent puppet, The Third Duloch. We don’t use most stats(our personal and political freedoms are negative 100 in canon)

As far as I know, average IQ is always 100, sort of a baseline if you will. An individual's score is compared against the average of 100 to determine if they are "above average" or "below average" in intelligence. Generally the scores don't deviate too much from each other anyway. Please correct me if I'm mistaken.

However, IQ tests are only used for children at most, as they are not considered completely reliable or accurate. IQ tests only measure certain types of intelligence and may have questions which are culturally biased. In most cases it doesn't translate into reality.

Anything higher would need some sort of drag to keep the result realistic. It could be that for every two points above 200, only one would count. Example- a score of 250 would be 225. The equation needs some sort of diminishing return to keep result realistic.
