Back on the site after another random hiatus - as you can see, I've (not?) been around for a long time, so I just want people to reply so I can see how many accounts are around the same age, and if there's any older floating around!

Since this is a discussions post, what keeps you coming back to ole faithful NationStates.net? :bow:

Hello. I guess it's the RMB and the nature of the site. Also the April Fools, N-Day, and Z-Day events. My cards phase have passed and I only sell or buy when I feel like it. Forums can be interesting occasionally too...

Prefers The South Pacific. Spanish is not my native language. I often take things for granted. Green is my favorite color. Collects music CDs. A male who's an almost-libertarian. Nominal non-practicing Protestant. Eh, to heck with it, I'm unaffiliated. Poetaster.

We need to accept that there are things beyond our control.
Also, if having a letter in a flag is a sin, I'm your vexillographical sinner.

I used to RP here but now I just stick around to argue in general. Sometimes if I'm tired I browse through general to get myself angrily aware. Works every time.
I am an internationalist, geolibertarian anarcho-futurist with syncretic egoist and Marxist tendencies. I consider authoritarianism to be intrinsically and irrevocably evil regardless of the authoritarians' intentions or economic inclinations. I do not recognize any law, government, border, or claim to private property.

I don't believe in kink-shaming unless your kink is submitting to the state.

The shits and giggles of F7 spam discussions that can be entertaining, brainless, or both.
Sweitchland is a nation based on the Texan Coast with a superior hold on global economics and shit tons of everything, like enemies. Our timeline is set in the 2020s doomsday. We have average civil rights, large technological advancements, above-average economy, military supremacy, and an actual competent government.

wow 10 years! Thats a whole epoch of an adults lifetime! How has life changed for you in the last 10 years? Im here mostly to test out how certain political beliefs play out. So far I've learned that its better to be hands off and let people be more self-determining in terms of politics, but use the government as a safety net for society.

This is my original account but I've gone through several side accounts to perform more testing, this isnt even my main account anymore but I keep it active because my factbook gets featured a lot in newbie tutorials so I try to log in and not let it get deleted. The biggest issue with this nation I found is the government funds everything, even stuff that should be allowed to fail or taken up by more capitalist means and that leads to incredibly high taxes.

Right now Im perfecting my new main account and once I get the type of nation I have I think I'll make a good-bye post at some point and leave it behind. I find this website rather interesting in figuring out how certain politics shape a nation and considering the political climate nowadays I think its important to give pause and analyze our political beliefs and see if they actually are optimal.
