Addicted to NationStates? Then swing by with an anonymous puppet!

Maybe share why you think you are? How do you cope with it?

Or tell us why you think you do NOT suffer a gaming disorder despite having 300 nations in which you log in daily every 3min 30h a day!

Is it worth it? Is this game really that good? A part of me thinks it is, probably not a healthy part.

Don't expect professional help. Don't expect any help! Which you probably anyway don't seek.

But....

You are not alone.

and to acknowledge to oneself that there might be an issue doesn't harm, right?

The Political Compass Polls in the Edmundian Empire is raging, and we need YOU to help us!

Everyone wants to know their ideology, everyone wants to know their beliefs. And how can they find it? Well, figuring it out for themselves, but you can also answer the political compass test to brag to everyone about which sector you landed on!

But how fun is it for one person to do a test that takes a few minutes for an image that no one cares about? How about an image that comes from weeks of polling to devise the ULTIMATE NATIONSTATES POLITICAL COMPASS SCORE! Every day a question from the political compass test will be uploaded, and votes will be tallied into an average. Once all questions are finalised, I will begin finalising the scores and come up with the average poll result!

Why should I join? Well, other than participating in true history, their are prizes to be won. Categories including 'most likely to fist-bump Stalin' and 'most likely to punch a priest' (names and categories subject to change) will be given to those who show certain - characteristics - during voting. More importantly, if you win a category you will be awarded 1000 Mass Telegrams. You can win more than one category and more telegrams but this will be unlikely.

Now, we are currently along the back end of the political compass test, question 49 today of a 62 question long poll. But fear not, I have made expert calculations to facilitate against these flaws. Firstly, the test is divided into categories naturally so that if you join in now you will start to get into the religious and sexual parts which will definitely be categories. Secondly I will prioritise later categories due to participation rates. Finally, when it comes to the more general questions, e.g. auth v lib, left v right, I intend to count people joining later differently in a way that benefits new comers by tripling their points (more on that later).

Now, obviously you got questions and I got some answers, but a QnA might help a bit.

  1. Q: Why should I join?
    A: Again, prizes, contributing to history, etc.

  2. Q: The political compass? You know that's a bunch of BS.
    A: I mean, yeah. I don't think a political compass test is a good measure of your actual opinions and even if it were I don't think it particularly matters. And if you know anything about the test you already know which quadrant we will be heading towards. That being said, it's more about what people say for each question, the rewards, the trophies, the fun. Don't take it too seriously.

  3. Q: Where will I find the results of this?
    A: After all the results come in I will work on writing a dispatch. Don't worry everyone involved even in one quiz will be noted in the dispatch to alert you to its presence. It will involve trophies, and results for each sector.

  4. Q: What if a result leads into a tie between two positions?
    A: Glad I asked. If I average everything and it's split down the middle, there's an easy fix. I've been voting in each one, and if this does happen I'll just discredit my vote. Easy fix.

  5. Q: Hey idiot, what if I just vote the most left wing positions so I get a trophy?
    A: You could try, and I'm not gonna discredit your votes, but keep in mind multiple things. First off, you're not the only person voting. Only one person can get a reward, and it's tabulated by other factors (below). Secondly, you don't know what categories I'm going to use so instead of gambling I'd suggest voting normally.

  6. Q: How do I get the mass telegrams?
    A: I'll send you a telegram, you tell me which nation to gift it to and that'll be that.

  7. Q: How do votes get analysed for awards?
    A: Well, it's simple. Say we are looking for most left wing. Let's give a position that's left wing. If you strongly agree, thats +2, and if you strongly disagree, that's -1. 0 is for strongly disagreeing and 1 and 0 for agreeing and disagreeing respectively. Inverse this if it's a right wing position. Whomever has the most points wins. Let me note that there are categories that will benefit not having a strongly, so don't think that spamming strongly agree or disagree will help your case. This is an example and it will be different but I think it helps in explaining the basic idea. There will no doubt be situations of similar voting patterns which will come down to how closely this reflects their nation, how long they have been voting and relevant dispatch info to suggest a real similarity.

I don't care if you only vote once or thrice, come down to the Edmundian Empire and check out our Political Compass Polls!

It appears from our closing embassies that the raiding portion of NationStates is still very active!

Yes but today’s raiders pick on tiny regions that gave up the ghost long ago.

When they preserve the founderless nations as trophies, it is very akin to the embassy collecting which they supposedly despise!
I have been frequently distracted from NationStates by real life, so many of my puppet nations are ceasing to exist now.

Greetings nations of NationstatesHolics Anonymous,

Here is the Turkic World News of June 2022

TURKIC WORLD NEWS-JUNE 2022

06/06/22: 27 years later Qazaqstan, to start a period which would be called "the new Qazaqstan", held a constitutional referrendum, second since their national history. Question was "Do you accept amendments and additions to the Constitution of the Republic of Qazaqstan set forth in the draft Law of the Republic of Qazaqstan "On Amendments and Additions to the Constitution of the Republic of Qazaqstan", published in the media on 6 May 2022?". Referrendum resulted in "Yes" with 77.18%.

The new constitution will clearly state that Qazaq soil, along with natural sources under the earth, belongs to the nation (previously state owned). Death penalty will be abolished. President and many other authorities will not be able to become member of political parties as long as they are in charge.

14/06/22: Crimean Tatars on the occupied peninsula are experiencing the greatest repression. This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelensky during a video address to the participants of the American Jewish Committee Global Forum. "The Russian army has destroyed the communities, in which the Greek community has lived for centuries. The Crimean Tatars on the occupied peninsula are experiencing the greatest repressions. Russian rockets hit Babyn Yar in Kyiv, a Russian missile damaged the Menorah in Drobitsky Yar near Kharkiv”, Zelensky Linksaid.

20/06/22: Composer and artist Iraqi Turk Muhammed Ahmed Erbilli passed away at 89. His compostions went beyond Iraq and were heard in Istanbul, Kirkuk, Azerbaijan and more. 12 songs that were popularized by Ibrahim Tatlıses are compositions of Erbilli, like "Yallah şoför", "Almağa gelin", "Yandım televizyonun elinden" and "Kızlar el ele verin". (Editor's Note: Iraq Turks/Turkmens are of a different ethnicity than Turkmens)

Kurdistan Regional Government authorities opposed Muhammed Ahmed Erbilli's coffin being covered by Turkmeneli flag. Kurd authorities' claim was that the Turkmeneli flag symbolizes a political party. Minutes later the flag was removed. Iraqi Turkish journalist Mustafa Kemal Yılmaz Linkreports.

24/06/22: China's Australia embassador Xiao Qian was interrupted by protestors during speech. Demonstrators shouted to "stop the genocide" in Xinjiang and "Tibet remains colonised". One asked: "How about freedom of speech in China?". LinkThe Guardian

29/06/22: Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Department of Culture opened “Resmin Türkçesi: Türk Dünyasının Tuvalde Buluşması” exhibition, which features works by artists from the Turkic world and Turkey, spanning seven countries on two continents. (Editor's Note: Exhibition's name translates to "The Turkish of Painting: Meeting of the Turkic World on Canvas". The word "Turkish" in this context means language and not nationality.)

The exhibition can be visited in "Tophane-i Amire Kültür Merkezi" for free from 28 June to 3 July. Includes works of Akmal Nuridonov and Alisher Alikulov from Uzbekistan, Arif Aziz, Refik Aziz and Sakit Mammadov from Azerbaijan, Eldar Aitmatov, Yuristanbek Shygaev and Musakeev Temirbek from Kyrgyzstan, Sembigali Smagulov from Qazaqstan, Hüssein Husseinov from Turkmenistan, Devrim Erbil, Ergin İnan, Kadir Ablak, Mahir Güven, Süleyman Saim Tekcan and Yalçın Gökçebağ from Türkiye.

30/06/22: Chinese ultra-nationalists violently assault Hong Kong human rights protestors at the China vs Australia basketball match. Activist Max Mok (莫熾韜) was holding a sign by Badiucao (巴丢草) supporting Australian Uyghur political prisoner Mirzat Taher - imprisoned for 25 years. "Security didn’t take any action against this violent attacker but they did drag me backwards down a flight of stairs for holding signs supporting Australian political prisoners in China and calling for an end to Uyghur Genocide" Drew Pavlou says and Linkreports.
