Ok. I have been playing NationStates online and I am only a new entrant, but my country, The Commonwealth of Ottotheo is remarkably like my home country. This game is worth the effort everyday as it is simple to play and allows you to model your rule on todays leaders! Just today my biggest employee group, the furniture restorers decided to go on indefinite strike until they receive a two year, 20% pay hike. Just like Tony Blair and the Fire Brigades, I just dismissed the issue outright. I will found out the consequences of my actions tomorrow. Play it now.
