Yea, JP got me in. here's my nation:

Quote
The Theocracy of Ehlers
Location: the Pacific
The Theocracy of Ehlers is a tiny, devout nation, notable for its strong anti-business politics. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 million are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous government concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Religion & Spirituality and Commerce are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 34%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.

Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Ehlers's national animal is the seven headed dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the pope.

If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

We should form some sort of alliance. I'll send you telegrams (even though my nation is fairly evil, and you guys look like you actually CARE about your citizens. Ewww....)

That's hilarious, SE, I made a Theocracy as well.

By the way, I made a region creatively called TWG. You are all free to move in and get comfortable.

Ent's making a new region now. I wanted to muck around with a second nation in the UN, so I'll join the region with both of those nations. I suggest everyone else foes the same, making a sort of TWG region.

I'm thinking we should call our union the "Alliance of Time-Wasters"


By the way, if today has been any indication, the forum's server sucks pretty hard core.

Dang, I made TWG before I knew about Procrastania. Maybe we should all go there?

It's a much better name than TWG. We need to remove the password, though, so that random nobodies can jump in. Let's all go there.

Ok, I'm moving to Procrastania now with my new nation, then I'll move my older one from TWG to Procrastania.
