Postby Northwest Americana » Fri Nov 26, 2010 8:01 pm

Full Name of Nation: The Citizens' Republic of Northwest Americana
Government type: Semi-Presidential Republic; generally left-leaning
WA Category: Civil Rights Lovefest
WA Civil Rights rating: Superb
WA Economic rating: Good
WA Political Rights rating: World Benchmark
Do you think the WA's categorisation and ratings are accurate? Yes
How would you characterise your nation in a single sentence? An industrializing, anti-authoritarian, left-wing, newly established liberal democracy with a rapidly developing culture and civil society.

Stance on:
Government:
Libertarianism <--> Authoritarianism: The Citizens' Republic leans closer to Libertarianism, believing that the state should not regulate the activities of individuals so long as they do not harm others or dominate others.
Capitalism <--> Socialism: The nation's economic system is predominately socialistic with some capitalist influence - essentially, the nation's economy revolves around the notion of state capitalism. Pure capitalists are looked upon by most members of the populace as radical, communists less so (the North has historically been populated by many workers' communes)
Monarchy <--> Republic: Republican government is widely accepted by the population. Although there is still an incredibly small amount of monarchist advocates within the population, they are widely looked down upon after the Citizens' Revolution which overthrew the nation's monarchy (which is typically viewed as a corrupt regime)
Centralism <--> Federalism: Centralism; the federal government in Watis typically set most domestic policy, laws, and regulations throughout the nation. Differences in laws and regulations between provinces are few.
Democracy <--> Autocracy: Democracy is constitutionally mandated and was imposed in 1997 at the conclusion of the Citizens' Revolution by the "Socialist Modernity Organization."
Militarism <--> Pacifism: The Citizens' Republic has, so far, never been directly involved in a large-scale war with a foreign power, but has taken an increasingly assertive line in diplomacy in terms of both human rights and opposition to totalitarian forms of government.
Society:
Religion <--> Atheism: Although most of Americanan society was Lutheran in the pre-democratic period, the overthrow of the monarchy was accompanied with the extreme liberalization of views in regard to religion. About one in eight Americanan now refers to themselves as Atheist, and about one in four reporting "broadly spiritual/Deistic" beliefs. Church (religion) is legally estranged from the state.
Progressivism <--> Traditionalism: Typically, the "new" Americanan society has revolved around reshaping and rejecting the social boundaries; progressivism has become the new normal after the revolution.
Universal suffrage: Yes; all persons over 18 may vote (17 years olds may vote after passing a civics test in some provinces for provincial elections)
Gender equality: Yes; man is legally equal to woman, and woman legally equal to man.
Species equality: (OOC: I typically don't recognize non-human sentience as existing in RP) The Citizens' Republic regards all humans as equal.
Slavery: Slavery is Constitutionally forbidden
Environmentalism: Many in public society advocate the protection in the environment; however, with widespread mineral and oil exploitation in the North and the effects of increasing urbanization (especially in the South), such hopes are smashed on a daily basis.
Alcohol and Drugs: Persons are allowed to consume alcohol at age 18, but not allowed to operate motor vehicles/heavy machinery if their body is under the influence of ANY alcohol. All drugs are forbidden, however marijuana is often used in the urbanized South. Prison terms/fines vary for the severity of each offense.
Homo/Bi/Trans-sexuality: Persons of all sexual orientations are equal.
Freedom of Speech: The government is NOT AUTHORIZED to restrict, regulate, or prevent free speech in any form or matter.
Right to Bear Arms: All citizens are Constitutionally given the right to bear arms; however, this right has essentially been regulated out of existence in Southern cities. However, the possession of in the North (especially in Northern commune areas) is quite visible and acquisition is simple. The government is still working on disarming militias from the revolution, so some groups still own considerable firepower.
Racism and Xenophobia: Discrimination based on race is surprisingly absent from most of Northwest Americana's southern cities. Although present in the north, it is certainly not pervasive. Racism is prohibited by law, and xenophobia plays little part in domestic politics (on a purely racial, not political, basis)
What is your nation best known for?

Ironically, the nation's burgeoning southern urbanization is typically overlooked in favor of its commune based frontier life in the Northern region and, to some extent, in the west as well. In these areas, workers typically work for State run corporations or smaller private companies that have roots with other communes in the area, and typically work in industries relating to the exploitation of natural resources located in Northwest Americana's historically unforgiving, cold, steppe regions.

Any other relevant information?

N/A; any specific queries can be relayed to the Diplomacy Department. (OOC: TG)

<OOC: Well, that was a sudden rush of responses! I'll do 3 tonight, then come back for the others tomorrow>

Imeriata
Foreign Service advisory: Use Caution Slavery State
Imeriata regards itself with some justification as a major centre of civilisation. Certainly it is the centre of a large and glorious empire, and its concert halls, public architecture and cultural sights make it a must-see destination on any world tour.
Inuto tourists should be aware that the climate is cold and the culture is vastly different to our own. While this is part of its attraction, it may make adjustment difficult at times. Female Inutolanders should prepare themselves for a much stronger separation of gender roles than exists at home, and Neanderthals and other non-Homo sapiens Inutolanders should be aware that Imeriatans regard them as inferior species, subject to mild chauvinism at best and outright discrimination at worst.
Imeriata's slave-owning practices will discomfit more sensitive Inutolanders, though tourists are not likely to run into this aspect of Imeriatan practice too much.

All in all, with appropriate caution, Inutolanders should have few major problems here.




Zwangzug
Foreign Service advisory: Pleasant
Zwangzug is a nation best known for its sports teams and sporting glories, and Inutolanders visiting this nation should be aware of how sports-focused they truly are. Inutolanders will appreciate their democratic traditions and pacifism, and should have few problems in visiting this nation. The one caution the Foreign Service would give is to be aware of local sports team rivalries and make allowances for this sporting tribalism. Basically, do not walk into a bar or public eatery wearing the other team's colours without making it obvious that you are a foreign tourist and thus not expected to fully understand.




The Anglo-Saxon Empire
Foreign Service advisory: Some caution required Slavery State
The Anglo-Saxon Empire is a slavery-practising state. Despite this rather repellent custom, the Empire is known to be honourable, with a feudalistic governmental structure which should feel fairly familiar to many Inutolanders.
Female travellers should be aware that the culture is quite patriarchal, but the general lack of racist and xenophobic attitudes make the Empire a pleasing enough place for a visit.

Inutolanders wishing or needing to make an extended stay in the country should prepare themselves for a more rigidly stratified society with a much bleaker environment. The open landscape should be borne in mind if you are one of those Inutos who suffer from agoraphobia, but the general attitudes of most people seem to be similar enough to those of people home back in Inutoland.

<OOC: Here's the next four. And that's the first page done, Huzzah!>

Valsir
Foreign Service advisory: Diplomatic Caution
Valsir's moderate stances on societal issues are essentially similar to those of Inutoland, and receive commendation. However, the Foreign Service advise that the country is extremely stratified, almost to the point of an informal caste system. The absolutist nature of their monarchy is a case in point, though it is tempered somewhat by federalism, while the outward-looking militarism of Valsir has marked it in Foreign Service files as a potential conquistador state.

All in all, Valsir is a pleasant enough place to visit, but an uneasy diplomatic companion.



Sebastianalandia
Foreign Service advisory: Diplomatic Caution
Sebastianalandia is an authoritarian single-party socialist/communist state. Its State-promulgated atheism and intolerance of even moderate drug and alcohol use are vastly different from Inutoland, and its World Socialist rhetoric and unabashed militarism mark it as a state the Foreign Service are keeping a close eye on.

However, Sebastianalandia is comparatively enlightened in other respects, and its stances on the equality of sapient species and genders should pose no problems for any Inutolanders, even Homo floresiensis, who wish to visit. The Foreign Service does recommend that travellers avoid commenting on Sebastianalandian internal politics if at all possible, even when directly asked, and that its citizens be diligent in their compliance with the directives of its law enforcement and state officials.



The Grand World Order
Foreign Service advisory: Avoidance Recommended
The Grand World Order is considered something of an oxymoron in Foreign Service circles: an intellectualist Fascist state. It is committed to spreading its own disturbing vision of government around the world, and its military might and economic power make it a force to be reckoned with in any state's foreign policy.

Sadly, the GWO's autocratic, authoritarian government form and denial of rights to non-Homo sapiens sapients (such as Inutoland's own Neanderthal and H. floresiensis populations) are symptomatic of a gaping chasm between their economic and military muscle and their social and ethical development.

While tourists may be welcomed, the Inutoland Foreign Service recommends most visitors avoid the GWO.



Eeri
Foreign Service advisory: Cultural Caution
Eeri is a traditionally Western-type Conservative state, as is unsurprising given its large farming population. Inutolanders unfamiliar with Western political conservatism should be warned that the public nudity, body painting, tolerance of alcohol and legalised drugs considered "traditional" and "conservative" are anathema to Western conservatism. The Inutoland Foreign Service does not recommend Eeri for the casual visitor or tourist, but business travellers should face no particular problems. Travellers are advised that Eeri has only minimal gun control, and every citizen should be assumed to be armed, though this should not pose much of a problem as the crime rate is low.

<OOC: OK, the next batch:>

Rumbria
Foreign Service advisory: Use Caution; Emigration Not Advised
Rumbria is a dictatorship, but basically an enlightened one. While it is more centralised than Inutoland, it shares the high value Inutoland places on education and science, and has a fairly open social policy. Due to its government form, Rumbria has been placed on the Foreign Service's long-term Watch List, but visitors from Inutoland should have no problems here.

The Foreign Service recommends against Inutoland citizens emigrating to this state, however.



The Warsaw Vanguard
Foreign Service advisory: Approval
The Warsaw Vanguard is a small, developing state with representative democracy, a market socialist economy and a mostly progressive social policy. The Foreign Service approves of this rational, reasonable, basically centrist state.



Northwest Americana
Foreign Service advisory: Basically Friendly
The government of Northwest Americana has an economic policy considerably to the left of Inutoland's, but the Foreign Service commends this nation's civil and political rights and assertive diplomatic work against totalitarianism and for human rights.

The one caution the Foreign Service gives Inutolander travellers to NW Americana is that they should not attempt to bring drugs of any kind into the country, even for personal use. This includes soft drugs like cannabis and coca leaves that are perfectly legal in Inutoland; the government of NW Americana takes a dim view of drugs, and citizens are liable to face adverse legal consequenses should they fail to heed this warning.



Bonnaful
Foreign Service advisory: BLACKLISTED
Bonnaful is best described as an enlightened despotism. However enlightened its domestic policy, though, the Foreign Service of Inutoland has placed Bonnaful on its black list, due to the nation's aggressive interventionist foreign policy which has a penchant for destabilising foreign regimes using special operations personnel. Inutolanders are advised to avoid this nation.



Greto
Foreign Service advisory: Armed but Welcoming
Greto is another militarised capitalist nation, but its domestic policies should pose few problems for Inutolanders. Young travellers between the ages of 17 and 21 are advised that the age of majority in Greto is not the 17 years of home, but 20 for voting and 21 for the purchase and consumption of alcohol and drugs. The nation's looser controls on the ownership of firearms should provoke Inutolanders to caution in their dealings with native Gretons; all adult citizens should be assumed armed.

Valsir
Foreign Service advisory: Diplomatic Caution
Valsir's moderate stances on societal issues are essentially similar to those of Inutoland, and receive commendation. However, the Foreign Service advise that the country is extremely stratified, almost to the point of an informal caste system. The absolutist nature of their monarchy is a case in point, though it is tempered somewhat by federalism, while the outward-looking militarism of Valsir has marked it in Foreign Service files as a potential conquistador state.

All in all, Valsir is a pleasant enough place to visit, but an uneasy diplomatic companion.


I like that review, especially the note about an informal caste system. I hadn't thought about it like that, but it's rather fitting when I think about it.

The Soviet Technocracy
Foreign Service advisory: Neutral Slavery State
The Soviet Technocracy, despite its Communist-sounding name, is a libertarian capitalist corporate state practising slavery on a strange, apparently consensual basis. While the Foreign Service has some doubts about this claim, the Soviet Technocracy seems a reasonable enough place to visit, for a libertatian corporate state. The Soviet Technocracy practises a semblance of democracy, though the electorate is composed entirely of corporate board members and is riddled with corruption. The Foreign Service makes few cautions for Inutolanders wishing to visit the Technocracy, but advises against emigration.



Wolfenium
Foreign Service advisory: Use Caution
Wolfenium is a nationalist, authoritarian state with few freedoms. While the Foreign Service praises its emphasis on gender and species equality and approves of its restrictions on firearms, Wolfenium's highly restrictive approach to freedom of speech, drugs and alcohol have placed it on Foregn Service watch lists.

The Foreign Service advises travellers from Inutoland to exercise all caution in their affairs should they need to travel to Wolfenium.



Yohannes
Foreign Service advisory: Approval With Minor Caution
The Empire of Yohannes is a democratic constitutional monarchy with a progressive, staunchly anti-slavery and pro-egalitarian governmental stance which Inutoland recognises with the highest approval. The one cautionary note the Foreign Service will sound for travellers from Inutoland is that they should be aware of the dim view the Empire takes of alcohol and drug use, both of which are banned in Imperial territory.

With the highly developed economy of Yohannes, especially its financial sector, the Foreign Service expects that most Inutolanders travelling to the Empire will be businessmen. Business travellers will face no systematic problems in Yohannes as long as the above caveat is borne in mind.



Rejistania
Foreign Service advisory: Welcoming
Rejistania is a basically centrist/progressive representative democracy with a high cultural value placed on sports. Its social policies almost exactly mirror those of Inutoland, particularly in terms of sexuality and gender roles, though Inutoland may be more egalitarian in this last. The Foreign Service sees no large potential problems for Inutolanders in this nation.



Costa Fiero
Foreign Service advisory: Cultural Caution
Costa Fiero is a moralistic, authoritarian democracy with compulsory military service. Its environmental beauty makes it a draw for tourists, but the Foreign Service advises Inutolanders that the moralistic nature of the government should be borne in mind when planning a trip here. Many things that are acceptable and legal in Inutoland are not permitted in Costa Fiero, particularly soft narcotics.

With that said, however, Costa Fiero is still basically welcoming and should not pose major problems for travellers prepared to follow the nation's moral code.

Full Name of Nation: The United Socialist States of Frenequesta
Government type: Federal Presidential Republic
WA Category: Civil Rights Lovefest
WA Civil Rights rating: Superb
WA Economic rating: All-Consuming
WA Political Rights rating: World Benchmark
Do you think the WA's categorisation and ratings are accurate? The rankings for the civil and political rights should be switched.
How would you characterise your nation in a single sentence? Frenequesta is a futuristic republic characterized by high social freedoms and more than moderate business regulation.

Stance on:
Government:
Libertarianism <--> Authoritarianism: Libertarianism
Capitalism <--> Socialism: Marginaly leaning socialism
Monarchy <--> Republic: Republic
Centralism <--> Federalism: Centralism, marginally. States may pass their own laws but may be overridden if it conflicts with federal law.
Democracy <--> Autocracy: Democracy
Militarism <--> Pacifism: Pacifism
Society:
Religion <--> Atheism: The government is strictly secular, and about 50% of the population is agnostic or atheist. Most that are part of a religion are of a liberal bent, and only 7% are traditional theists. Atheism is the semi-official position of the government on religious matters but does not go out of its way to promote it or criticize other religions directly.
Progressivism <--> Traditionalism: Progressivism
Universal suffrage: Granted above 16.
Gender equality: Women and men are equal, and gender roles are almost non-existent.
Species equality: All sentient species have equal rights.
Slavery: Prohibited.
Environmentalism: A major priority of our government, for aesthetic and scientific reasons. Legally, there is no such thing as "waste" in our nation, recycling of certain objects is mandatory, and all other refuse is donated to scientists who figure out ways to utilize it.
Alcohol and Drugs: All are legal themselves, but crimes committed under the influence are considered aggravated. Alcohol is legal below the age of 18 with parent's permission, and tobacco is prohibited in all public places.
Homo/Bi/Trans-sexuality: They have equal rights. One of our founders is gay.
Freedom of Speech: We have it, unless you count mandatory fact-checking and screening for logical fallacies of political and business advertising as impediments to freedom of speech.
Right to Bear Arms: Granted. Most citizens, however, consider guns abhorrent.
Racism and Xenophobia: Abhorred and shunned in our nation, but we do have freedom of speech.
What is your nation best known for? Our musicians. Nearly everyone in Frenequesta can play a musical instrument, it is rare not to hear a piano play somewhere on our city streets, the government scouts artists and composers that show particularly high originality and gives them a stipend and a spot at the local concert hall, and our embassies abroad are often equipped with string quartets.
Any other relevant information? About half our our private sector consists of worker-owned cooperatives, traditional hierarchical corporations are kept in check by a union which doubly serves as a government inspector that makes sure they adhere to environmental and consumer protection standards, and single-family housing and shopping malls in the traditional sense are rare in order to prevent sprawl (Urban department stores are more common).

Full Name of Nation: Empire of Xarithis
Government type: Meritocratic Dictatorship
WA Category: Father Knows Best State
WA Civil Rights rating: Some
WA Economic rating: Good
WA Political Rights rating: Outlawed
Do you think the WA's categorisation and ratings are accurate? Extremely so.
How would you characterise your nation in a single sentence? A very diverse nation recently emerged from a near-apocalyptic civil war, ruled by a Benevolent Dictator who wants nothing more than the survival of his people and the reconstruction of his homeland.

Stance on:
Government:
Libertarianism <--> Authoritarianism: Strongly Authoritarian
Capitalism <--> Socialism: Currently, we use a mixed system. We do not follow any economic system ideologically, though, instead choosing to adopt the system that best fits our current situation..
Monarchy <--> Republic: Meritocratic Monarchy. We oppose Hereditary Monarchy.
Centralism <--> Federalism: Pseudo-Federal (Highly Centralized, as the Emperor may overturn local laws and systems as he wishes, but the Emperor typically allows the Districts to govern themselves.)
Democracy <--> Autocracy: Autocracy.
Militarism <--> Pacifism: Extreme Militarism. All citizens(Barring those who have committed a serious crime or are known to hold anti-government views) are technically in the military, although only around 10% are active in peace-time, and Defense takes the largest cut of our annual budget. War Production(Weapons, vehicles, missiles, etc) is the largest section of our industry.
Society:
Religion <--> Atheism: The Government is Secular, although the people are very religious. We have 38 native religions(One per Cultural District), and the complex and interesting interactions between these religions is one of our cultural distinctions. Other religions are welcomed with open arms at best, with apathy at worst.
Progressivism <--> Traditionalism: Center.
Universal suffrage: We are not democratic.
Gender equality: Most Xarithians believe strongly in gender equality. And all are equal in the eyes of the Emperor.
Species equality: Sapient species are treated as equals by both the government and the people.
Slavery: We strongly oppose.
Environmentalism: Too late for that. Our evironment has been all but destroyed in the course of the Civil War. A century of war and war-time industry can do terrible things to the land, air, and sea. If there were a way to regain our lost environment, we would pursue it, although not at the cost of our industry.
Alcohol and Drugs: Alcohol is legal for those over 20, and is currently the only harmful substance that is legal, but may be outlawed or restricted to government supervision under the "Equality of Lesser Harmful Substances" in the near future. Recreational drugs, for the most part, are illegal. "Lesser" recreational drugs may become legal under government supervision in the near future.
Homo/Bi/Trans-sexuality: The Emperor ensures freedom of sexuality - no person may be discriminated against based upon gender preference. And most citizens are apathetic toward others' sexuality. Non-heterosexuals are uncommon, though.
Freedom of Speech: Messages advocating criminal activity and anti-government views are illegal. Discriminatory messages are monitored. Any other type of message is legal.
Right to Bear Arms: All Xarithians not currently activated in military service are restricted to hand-guns. But everyone is given a standard issue semi-automatic pistol, as the Emperor strongly believes in the right to protect oneself from criminals.
Racism and Xenophobia: Racism is looked down upon by both the Emperor and most citizens. As for Xenophobia, Xarithians seek out the strange, not run from it. That is how you obtain knowledge.
What is your nation best known for? The 38 Distinct Cultures of the Empire and the interactions between them(If there would be any reason a tourist would come here, it would be to experience the Cultures), the relatively vast military and industrial capacity, the dictatorial but benevolent Emperor, amongst other things.
Any other relevant information? We are not hostile to other nations, regardless of ideology or economic system, unless they initiate hostilities.

Frenequesta
Foreign Service advisory: Commended
Frenequesta seems to the Foreign Service to be the same sort of moderate state with high individual freedoms that Inutoland herself is. The high value placed on equality, moderate business regulation and progressive soccial policy are all commended by the Foreign Service and should feel completely normal to visiting Inutolanders. In particular, the Frenequestan business environment, though structured a little differently through these "workers cooperatives", achieves broadly the same ends as Inutoland's smaller-scale business model, frowning on large hierarchical corporations.
Frenequesta receives the Inutoland Foreign Service's commendation as almost a model state.



Xarithis
Foreign Service Advisory:Use Caution
Xarithis is not a place for the faint of heart. The post-apocalyptic milieu makes mere survival more of a challenge than in less destroyed states, and Xarithians typically do not have much time or energy to spare for frivolity. This is not to say that the people are unfriendly or unwelcoming, but to give caution that one's imposition on this fragile society should not be done lightly.
The Foreign Service is concerned by the dictatorial government style, but hopes that this is due to the exigences of the situation. In time, as this diverse and potentially vibrant nation restores itself, the Foreign Service hopes that a transition to more democratic institutions will come about.
Visiting Inutos should note that everyone is armed, and should cooperate ABSOLUTELY with all representatives of the government.
All in all, the Foreign Service notes that travellers to Xarithis should be wary of planning a trip at all, but notes that apart from the authoritarian government and near-destroyed environment, visiting Inutolanders should feel the government's social stance to be familiar.



Valcluse
Foreign Service Advisory:Legal Differences
Valcluse is a mostly moderate, centrist-type state with a mostly forward-looking, progressive social policy. Inutolanders should note that many drugs which are commercially available in Inutoland are banned outright or restricted to "medical usage" in Valcluse, though the controlled substance "tobacco" is widely available and used by many over the age of 18. 18 is the legal age of consent in Valcluse: seventeen-year-old Inutolanders should be aware that they will have minor child status in Valcluse should they travel there.
Valcluse is basically friendly, but the differences in legal code should be borne in mind by any potential travellers. A full list of relevant differences in law can be obtained from the Foreign Service prior to travel.
