How much does it cost in your country?

Postby Pavonistade » Wed Jun 26, 2019 11:47 am

Basically, you describe the price of an item (in your NationStates country) that the above nation (AN) mentions. Then you list an item of your choice for the next nation to price.

For example:
Sadistan: There's no one above me. A gallon of milk.
Maxtopia: A gallon of milk costs 10 Maxbucks or NSD$10, since milk is quite valuable here. A chocolate donut.
Brasilistan: A chocolate donut costs $0.05 in Brasilistan. A new Lamborghini.
Blackacre: Lamborghinis are banned for being the sign of evil capitalist ideals, though most cars cost at least $30,000. A small bag of oranges.

Make sure to follow the rules and keep things PG-13. Also, don't hesitate to estimate prices if necessary (e.g. $1 billion for a piece of FTL technology may not be unreasonable for an MT country).

I'll start with one item:
A touchscreen laptop built in early 2019

Economic Left/Right: 0.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.54
President: Calvin Elmore

What the fuck is a new video game?? We don't have tech to produce video games at all! Come on..since 2071 there has been zero video game produced. Right now we don't even have operational computers any more!

Cats are priceless in Lukaslavia - you either keep them as your own or let them run off on their own. In fact, ownership of a cat is very collective and open. Yes, cats can have different owners all at once.

Cool!

P.S. I think my answers will mostly be why something does not exist or can not be manufactured in the Onitsha Empire.

A Bible

2,500-4,000 Onitsha Dollars or colloquially 2,500-4,000 Jessicas.

It is hard to obtain a lot of Onitsha paper, a poorly made replica of ancient Chinese paper. It is even harder to print a Bible or any other book on Onitsha paper.

1 kilogram of ammonia (it is worth more than a million Onitsha Dollars because we can't manufacture ammonia using any modern method).

AN: 70-100 Onitsha Dollars

Leather is affordable.

WHAT? (Queen Jessica is crying) We have no operational automobiles and no automobile fuel..Our last refinery shut down in the 2080s because we can't repair the machinery..Gasoline and diesel had been used up by 2088..

1 gram of aspirin, a medicine that costs more than 45,000 Onitsha Dollars per gram because we can't manufacture it. By 2091 only about 100-150 grams of aspirin still exist in the Onitsha Empire.

Free, if manufactured locally. LGD 0.50 (USD 11.50) at most if manufactured from another country, due to high demands.

About 0,50 €/gram, that's slightly cheaper than in real-life Germany.

AN: It is covered by the state; it costs the state between 70 000 to 150 000 €.

Apples (per kilogram)?

In West Africa fresh apples do not exist because it is impossible to transport them from Sicily or Gibraltar to West Africa without them rotting.

They don't exist in East Africa either.
