Based on flag would you ride public transportation in AN?

Postby 95X » Fri Oct 23, 2020 7:15 am

I've been wanting to try this one for a while.

Based on the flag, and only the flag, would you ride public transportation in the above nation?

Public transportation includes trains and buses and perhaps multi-seat airplanes with capacity sold by the seat, not so-called 'rideshare' or taxis.

Please don't respond with "I don't ride public transportation" with or without reason, or respond that the reader should skip your post.

Also, it's hard to say when there isn't a nation above me.

Yes. I imagine it to be quite efficient.

No I think the transport would be cheap, but inefficient and dirty.

The Flag looks very nice, so I would assume based off of that that the Transportation would be well funded.

Sure, it'd probably beat driving.
Most NS Stats and Policies are somewhat accurate to how I envision this nation, but please try to judge this nation primarily based on its factbooks.

This is my attempt to write a nation that embodies my political views, but is also played realistically, showcasing both the upsides and downsides of my ideal system. Most factbooks are still an active WIP, so let me know if there's anything you think can be improved upon

No. The US isn't known for particularly good public transportation.

No

And a lot of people might not know this but there are elections in the UAE.

Probably. Based on the flag, I assume it’s safe, but cramped.

No. What kind of public transportation do they even have?
