Not sure if this is in the right place but meh!

I, along with many others, used to be addicted to NationStates well NationStates 2 launched today and I am (geekily) excited and am currently looking through and setting up my own nation again! Very Happy

Anyone else slightly interested (or dare I say it excited?) about this?

In NationStates 1 or 2 ? The Queendom of a Distant Memory ?

A lot of the ones in "The World" in NS1 are very militaristic entirely - "The Principality of Dragons with Guns", "The People's Democratic Government of Hard Army Bastards"...

jaysus... where's the hippy communes ? The genetic societies involved in building super-human people - the Ubermenschen ?

Ou I found one - "The John Lennon Memorial of Pufferry"...

Oh, NationStates, I had a nation there for many years, until my citizens united to overthrow me in a bloody coup, if you come over to my lair, I shall show you the scars. It is a great game with lots of fun and I shall take the opportunity of the introduction of the new game to re-establish myself there. It is good craic and a subsidiary online interest to the wonder which is Machine Nation.

I started a nation, but the site was very, very slow for me. Any suggestions?

I'm a multi-tasker - I could cook a meal or write a report while a page is opening. I suppose that's good.

Fantastic - I used to play NationStates for a while but it got very repetitive. Hopefully this one will have more features. I'll start a nation in a small while. I presume there is a region/alliance function again like in the last one? Perhaps we could set up a MachineNation group?

One thing that always kills me though is trying to decide whether to build the country on what I believe in real life or create a psycopathic dictatorship hell-bent on world domination.

I know what you mean. But the imagination wins over doesn't it ? How can your real-life nationstate compete against someone else who runs a Principality of Genetically Enhanced Super Mountain Trolls with ICBMs anyway ?

I had a few nations on NS1. One of my favourites was The Most Serene Republic of Placid Tranquility, which was guaged entirely towards creating a lovely nation of lovely people, so I guess you could say that was a hippy love-fest.

My oldest and biggest nation (a few billion people) though was The Armed Republic of Needless Destruction - basket case economy, political and civil freedoms unheard of, environmentalist protestors and dissenting journalists summarily executed. That was fun.

What happened to the Most Serene Republic?

Cactus flower, as I said before I found NS1 very repetitive which got quite boring. Eventually I neglected my nations and after 25 days I think they get destroyed (the stupid thing is that the names don't free back up).

My Nation of Jebosia in world 49 is powering up the GDP rankings. I'm almost totally self sufficient and expect to be number one in a week or two, I'm currently at no. 3.

My leftist economics approach is taking the world by surprise. I will see my enemies fall before me and consider the lamentation of their women and children to be sweet music (to paraphrase Conan).
