    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.
