this is a morph what i would like to do is develop this nation together, everyday they give you a problem to solve, it usually has 3 to 4 answers. you get to choose one. the one constant is you can ignore.

so i want to make this a game where everyone on this site is welcomed to comment and place their answers to the problem here. except for the first post just enter 1 to 4 depending on the number of answers to the problem. i will take a tally around 8pm my time, i am in the USA central time.

everyday i will also post the game update. if no one answers then i will choose the one i like. so remember this country is a democracy every vote counts.

our first choice will be posted in post two and it will determine what our country philosophy is to start with there are around ten questions which i will post. please participate.

ok since no one wanted to make a statement above i decided to disagree with all of it,

here are the results,

Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy

Civil Rights: Good

Economy: Reasonable

Political Freedoms: Below Average

Regional Influence: Minnow

Location: the Pacific

The Republic of Unexplained mystery is a fledgling, pleasant nation, notable for its burgeoning bigfoot population. Its compassionate population of 5 million have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Law & Order, and Religion & Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 22%, but much higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is led by the Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture industries.

Crime is a problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Unexplained mystery's national animal is the bigfoot, and its currency is the mystery.

and our first issue.

In response to a slow news week, certain highbrow newspapers have stirred up the debate over voluntary vs compulsory voting.

The Debate

1."Compulsory voting makes about as much as sense as having the death penalty for attempted suicide," says civil rights activist Chastity Jones. "You can't force people to be free! You can only give them the choice. Besides, if all those derelicts who can't be bothered to get off their butts once every few years voted, who would they elect? I shudder to think."

2."It's not contradictory at all," argues political commentator May Broadside. "The fact is, if not everyone votes, the outcome isn't truly representative. Some groups--like elderly gun nuts--vote more often than others. That's why we always end up with such terrible politicians."

3."This raises an interesting issue," says Calvin Barry, your brother. "And that is: why do we need elections, anyway? Seems to me it would be much simpler if you just decided what was right, and did it. Wouldn't that save everyone a lot of time?"

The Government Position

The government has yet to formalize a position on this issue.

remember we can also ignore the issue.

issue 2

The Issue

Several major city streets were clogged with bicycles this morning, as the environmental group 'Two Wheels Good, Four Wheels Bad' staged a protest. Several hundred riders ambled through downtown streets, blissfully ignoring the torrent of abuse hurled at them by thousands of motorists running late for work.

The Debate

1."People are sick of dirty, smelly automobiles," said protest organizer Gregory Longbottom. "They're choking the city, the environment--our lives! Cars must be banned!"

2."The only thing people are sick of is long-haired idiots riding their bicycles at two miles an hour on major thoroughfares," says committed motorist Elizabeth Hendrikson. "People shouldn't be able to protest like this. The government needs to crack down on them."

3.The Automotive Manufacturers Association, meanwhile, has called for government support. "It's clear that we need to boost the level of automobile support in this country. This protest this morning is a clear indication of... um... anyway, we need more government funds."

The Government Position

The government has yet to formalize a position on this issue.
