  • mrmitchell's NES: Tough Times

    It is 2007.

    Iraq is still occupied and without leadership. The restless citizens stage demonstrations in every large city, and don't seem to stop any time soon. The military has adopted a "kill all protestors" policy for Iraq.

    Afghanistan is the same. However, it is now the world's largest drugs producer, and thusly its citizens are fairly richer than Iraq's. The USA would like to stop the drug trade in the nation, but its resources are stretched too thinly to do anything significant. Holding onto the place is hard enough as it is.

    The American economy, after looking like it was improving in 2004, fell back into recession. Thousands more have lost their jobs. Those that are lucky enough to still be consumers are burdened with high taxes and higher debt. The economy is only a pinch away from total and irrecoverable collapse. Demonstrations are large and recurrent in the largest cities. Food is hard to come by.

    Europe isn't much better off. Britain and the rest of Europe are at odds, due to the former's pro-US stance. However, western and southern europe have huge problems due to the dead economy. Northern Europe remains fairly affluent, comparitively, at least. At least if you're in Germany or Scandinavia, you can manage to purchase food.

    The Middle East is hell. Israel and Palestine continue to beat the crap out of each other. The Arab nations ceaselessly fight each other and Israel. They were the final straw on the camel's back that caused the economic disaster in 2005, when they got the bright idea of stopping oil production. Oil is now a nearly impossible-to-get commodity in the developed world.

    The developing world--Africa, parts of Asia, and South America--hasn't fallen much. You have to have somewhere to fall from, to fall at all. At most, life in those region's cities has deteriorated to that of conditions in poorest Europe. Life outside of those cities remains as it was before: bad.

    China has done surprisingly well in the face of the global economic meltdown. Although the improvement of life there has stopped, Chinese citizens in large cities now enjoy as good a style of living as Americans and Europeans. China is now a huge force in world politics.

    You must pick your nation, and bring it back out of this pit of doom, and take it up to become the next world superpower.

    ---
    This is intended to be a low-moderation NES. As long as you stay realistic, there won't be any need for moderation.

    Rate these things on a scale of 1 to 100 for classification.

    ECONOMY
    MILITARY (Army/Navy/Air)
    DISCONTENT
    INFRASTRUCTURE
    EDUCATION

    And then, GOVERNMENT type--a line or two about your government and how it rules the country.

                  For discontent, are higher numbers better or lower?

                      Discontent, higher numbers are worse. Remember that it's going to be naturally high because this is an NES where the world has almost gone to hell.

                          Weather Data Recieved for the Summer
                          Summer is now officially over, so the French Meteorology Board is proud to report that this summer was far milder than the past string of Burning Summers that have plagued France.

                          "Burning summers" are caused by global warming from the German factories and result in little to no rain and temperatures in excess of 100F. This year's was predicted to be as bad as 2003, but with the exception of the recent week has been fairly good. Seniors are still advised to stay indoors in an air-conditioned building, however.

                          Germans Eat Babies
                          Today we go over an exploding cultural trend in Germany: eating babies. One of the favorite German pastimes is to consume a baby, whole, or in parts. On every street corner in Berlin there is a stall that sells babies, usually specializing in types of babies. For example, French babies are reported to be quite delectable. King Mrmitchell I decried the baby trade today and called baby consumption a crime against humanity, ordering Germany to stop this horrible practice at once.

                          Monaco Absorbed
                          Monaco was absorbed into France. Its absorption will be a great boon to our economy. Which is already doing fine anyway.

                          Discontent Falls
                          King Mrmitchell I announced today that discontent has fallen by two points, from 60 to 58, because the public is accepting how awesome he rules. There could be no better leader than our King. He will lead us to victory against the Germa...I mean, uh, that's saved for the breaking news war edition. But he will lead us to a better economy.

                            Federal Republic of Germany

                            From the newspaper Morgenpost (MoPo)

                            French claims, Germans would "consume" babies, are too absurd to deserve a response. Instead the recent anti-German propaganda campaign run by King Mrmitchell I. shows the alarming grade of aggresiveness and the lack of intellect of this leader - and sadly also some of the people there - has.
                            That is also represented by the sudden introduction of the ludicrous Farenheit system in France, leading to the assumption the new French "king" was instituted by the U.S. agency "CIA".
                            This suspicion is also supported by the recent claims, German factories would cause the environmental changes we experience. Even children know that Germany is the ONLY country in the world that has not only met the Kyoto protocol conditions, but even bettered them. Only the US don´t acknowledge that treaty. In fact, the US are the world´s biggest polluters, unmatched by any other nation.

                            Kanzler Stoiber today convinced the strong green/red opposition to drop their pacifist stance and to agree on a military reform of giant extents. This measure shall help to prevent further aggression by the new French state.

                            In related news, the last free French president Jaques Chirac was granted asylum in Germany. His efforts to bring the two neighbour nations together are not forgotten, both here and in France.

                            Orders
                            Expel France from the EU.
                            Publically disassociate from MoPo´s statements regarding the USA.
                            Reform military; Prolong compulsory military service to 3 years; Conscript women and men; Abolish the alternative civil service, replace it with a voluntary civil year.
                            Abolish minimum wages and price limitations to boost economy.

                            To Russia
                            Greetings to the new Russian government!
                            We intend to continue the long and friendly relationship with you, our eastern friends. How´s your Tchechenian war going? Is there anything we can help you with?

                              Germans continue to eat babies
                              Germany's baby consumption has tripled. They seem to like babies named Fahrenheit. But they think American babies are nasty.

                              German military pledges to eat as many French babies as possible

                              Orders
                              Increase military. Require mandatory service for all who can pass a strict exam for entrance.
                              Expel Germany from the EU.

                              To Russia
                              Hello new government! We greet you to Europe. Please ignore Germany if it whines about us, and we will be happy to export a valued commodity to you in return.
