Mine is mostly a terrible country, we're doing pretty well in the Pizza delivery industry though, you know, on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index (PPPI)
If I start to run it into the ground I'll just scrap the democracy
What's that poll for anyway?

It's actually from when we used to be part of the World Assembly. I'll replace it with a modern vote once I get accepted back into the world assembly.

I love the sound of that, shame I can't rename my country, maybe I'll constantly create new countries until I get one with a booming pizza industry

The Issue

Tragedy struck CrazyMLC today, as a gunman killed three people in a suburban shooting rampage. The community is united in grief, but divided in opinion as to what should be done.

The Debate

The strongest voices demand tighter gun controls. "The only way to prevent further atrocities is to take the guns out of the hands of the murderers," says anti-gun campaigner Naki Broadside. "There's no justification for them in today's society. We need tighter regulations on who can hold guns, so only our police and military have them."


"That's not all we need," says radical left-wing activist Gretel Peters. "The government should ban all guns outright--even in the police force. This is an opportunity to make CrazyMLC a totally gun-free state."


"Guns don't kill people, people kill people," says NRA head honcho Alexei Goethe. "If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns. Is that what we want? Think, people. The answer isn't to ban guns. It's to crack down on those Hollywood movies and computer games that glamorize violence. They're the real criminals."


Why do all of these positions suck.

I just dismissed that issue, since all the options sucked, we all know taking guns away wouldn't do anything much anyway, and who doesn't like guns?

Meanwhile, in Canis Maximus
Quote:
The Issue
Members of a new weird religious cult, called the Order of Violet, ask for the government to appease their mighty god by offering Her a sacrifice of the human variety.

The Debate

"What have we got to lose?" says religious freedoms advocate Johann Laine. "Just cut up a few homeless folk - it appeases this group's bloodthirsty Goddess, gets rid of unsightly bums that drain welfare, and everybody goes home happy."


"We must go much further than a few beggars!" argues the overzealous High Member of the Order of Violet, Robin Yeats. "You must pass a law that everyone's first born child must be slaughtered, on live TV if possible. Think of the viewing figures!"


"You aren't going to listen to these whackjob Violetists, are you?" comments Miranda Chicago while leading a prayer group. "Human sacrifices! Surely we're too civilized to permit such barbaric practices! These lunatic fringe groups should be outlawed, and their leaders should be executed!"


"Who's being a lunatic?" retorts Larry Taffs of the Canis Minoris Humanitarian Society. "I agree that these practices ought to be outlawed, but instead of sinking to the same level of these fanatics and killing our fellow people, why not simply start a re-education program? Even the worst person can be rehabilitated into a useful member of society, with enough time, care, and lots and lots of funding!"

my policies only APPEAR to be schizophrenic because i'm running things within the context of spess colony

e.g. mass austerity, extreme government control, moderate environmental measures because space waste disposal is tough, and bans on anything frivolous (like fashion)

So, we're back down to two members if anyone wants to join/come back. Otherwise, Vireville and I will keep trucking along by ourselves.
