View Full Version : I'm forming a new country. Want in?

The country I live in is kind of boring, so I’m gonna go a new one that’s more fun and stuff. I haven’t thought of a name for it yet, but I know that it’s going to be on an island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, and the island is going to be shaped like a giant smiley face. You can move to my country if you want to, and I think you should because that would be nice. This is how the new country will work:

Economy: The currency will be measured in notes called kitts. All kitts will have pictures of cats doing funny stuff printed on them. This will make people want to work harder to earn money and see more funny cats, and so the economy will do good.

Tackling Global Warming: To combat global warming, all buildings in my country will be fitted with giant air conditioners on the outside to make sure that everywhere is nice and cool.


Stopping Crime: In order to tackle crime more effectively, all police officers will all be trained as ninjas.

National Defence: In times of war, the smiley faced country will become an angry face to scare off our enemies. If they don't leave, the face will start crying and they'll feel really bad and go away.

Education: All teachers must come to school dressed as fluffy pink rabbits, and they need to inhale lots of helium at the start of each lesson, because that would make them less intimidating and also fun to listen to.

Culture: Folklore and myths play a big part in most cultures, but this country won’t have been around long enough to have written any real folklore, so I figured we could just kidnap acclaimed fantasy writer Terry Brooks and force him to make some stuff up.

Transport: People will have wings.

And those are my ideas. Would you like to come and live in my country? Also, do you have any ideas for stuff that could make my country better?

And are there any flaws in my idea which I should perhaps iron out?

I would never live there if you used regular electricity to run those ACs and everything else. Now, if you were to use windmills or solar panels as means of getting electricity, then it'd be more reasonable for me to want to come live in this place of yours.

Actually, don't use AC whatsoever. Get all your buildings green roofs. Green roofs help make everything inside cooler, without the need of ACs. And perhaps it would help outdoors, too. It also absorbs any rain that would fall.

I suggest waffles, pancakes and french toast as major exports. Alternatively, you could grow corn.

Jolene

I guess the country could make money from tourism. After all, lots of people would probably want to go on holiday to an island shaped like a big smiley face. Exporting waffles, pancakes and french toast sounds good too, but I reckon France might have patented that last one.

We don't have any pink hippos though, so the name would be kind of misleading. Can't we break even and I'll just bake you a pink hippo cake? It won't be to scale though.

I'm wondering if this is a joke or are you really planning on making a Micronation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micronation). The implications of a smiley faced island sounds tempting though. The country would profit from extensive tourism and uh general weirdness. Also, air conditioners to combat Global Warming would just make it worse. Air Conditioners contain refrigerants called CFC (well, some of them anyway).

CFC is not really that reactive therefore, it has a lifespan of over 100 years. When it is released into the atmosphere, ultraviolet radiation breaks of a chlorine element which incidentally is very reactive. Then, the chlorine atom will collide with an Ozone molecule and steal an oxygen atom to form Chlorine Monoxide and leaving the Ozone molecule as a regular molecule.
Afterwards, when another oxygen atom collides with the Chlorine Monoxide molecule it will steal the oxygen atom and release the chlorine atom back into the atmosphere this cycle repeats itself.

If you use a non-CFC refrigerant it would be ok but then the power usage would be enormous. It is almost impossible to gather sufficient electrical energy from windmills and hydroelectric generators on such a small island. If you resort to fossil fuels then it just brings back the original global warming problem.

Now my comments on other stuff.
The currency will be measured in notes called kitts. All kitts will have pictures of cats doing funny stuff printed on them. This will make people want to work harder to earn money and see more funny cats, and so the economy will do good.




Cool, lolcat money. But then, are you sure you have enough ink to print colored pictures on money?


People will have wings.
I opt for fusion powered oxygen gas propelled jetpacks. :D

Belgium already beats you in that department. They have the best waffles in the world, and are -known- for it. They have more history.


And people wouldn't tour some random island. People tour to see history, like I said. Why do they go to France? Why do they go to Italy?

People tour to see history or culture, and the only culture I can see from this island is young teenagers running around thinking they can own a place without even proper knowledge of business or economy because they haven't even had the time to learn it yet.

Yeah, maybe you can turn your island into a resort but the only way you can lower the cost enough to persuade people to come instead of going to other countries is to have small wages and work the people there like personal maids and butlers.

Going to war with Belgium or Brazil? Not only do you lack adequate logistics or force projection capabilities to stage an invasion, in the wild event you actually enter their territory, their militaries can and will stomp whatever you can throw at them into the ground. Next thing you know, your pathetic excuse for a nation gets completely wiped off the map by the Americans.

Also, trying to buy off the country of Japan? Without precious metal reserves, your currency isn't even worth the paper it's printed on, and the prime minister will just laugh in your face and tell you to never set foot on Japanese soil ever again.
