How do I go back to being a "Mother Knows Best State"?

Postby Hupplania » Wed May 11, 2022 9:03 pm

I rather like having that title but I got no idea how to get back to it nor maintain it.

Any bits or tips I should know about?

Short answer: wait for more issues and solve them carefully.

I run a couple of Mother Knows Best States and can give you a good picture!

M/FKBS, iirc, need to have moderate civil rights (35-72 MLK units), low political freedom (0-34 on the Diebold) and moderate economic freedom (+33 to +67 for capitalists and -67 to -33 for socialists on the Rand). Looking over your nation, to return to a MKBS, you need to reduce your political freedoms all the way down to at least below 34 - you are currently at 63,81.

This most handy guide could help point you in that direction.

Hope this helps!

For future reference, questions like this belong in the Technical forum (if they're more general, e.g., "what are the criteria for being a Mother Knows Best State") or in Got Issues (if they're more specific, e.g., "is there a list of issues that will change my stats in X way"). The "General" forum is mostly for discussion of political topics, current events, and other non-NS subjects.

Quick question; is there a difference between a Mother Knows Best State and a Father Knows Best State?

Your pretitle, that's all (edit: and leader field, forgot about that, d'oh!). Simply include a feminine title such as Matriarchy or Queendom and you're set

Also works for the leader field if you precede your leader's name with any of the following titles: Empress, Queen, Princess, Lady. Possibly others I haven't figured out yet.

You are currently an Inoffensive Centrist Democracy, but you can easily get to that Mother/Father Knows Best State by decreasing your political freedom. As others suggested, changing the leader and nation pretitle works once you get to that point.
I don't stand with Ukraine. I don't stand with Russia. I don't stand with the US, NATO, or EU. I stand with the innocent civilians being caught in the crossfire while the politicians, the media, and weapons manufacturers continue to stoke division and conflict in their geopolitical chess games and treat the people of Ukraine as mere pawns. Zelensky is a corrupt, opportunist oligarchic politician who is not fit to lead Ukraine through anything and wants to inflate his own ego and offshore accounts.
