A picture and short explanation is strongly recommended. At least for the first few rounds.


Welcome to another ISH Draft! As promised, this is the spiritual successor to the Political Powers Draft with a few twists. In this draft each contestant will choose a number of individuals to found their nation with an emphasis on structure and coherence.



Similar to the music draft, you can let your creative juices flow as to how you want to structure your government. Every single human being born is free to be chosen. So you can make a splintered country of competing cities ala Renaissance Italy, a propaganda filled dictatorship with a citizen body whipped into a fervor like WW2 Germany, or hippie colony of artists and philosophers. However, you must AT LEAST specify what type of government your nation-state will be using, as at the end of the draft you'll get an opportunity to explain how your nation would perform in the following criteria before I make a final ranking:

1. Creativity (Did you think outside the box?)
2. Citizen Happiness Index (Are your citizens satisfied?)
3. Defense (How will you survive around warmongering neighbors?)
4. Economy (Free market? Mercantilist? Centrally planned?)
5. Political Stability (Are your individuals backstabbers or team players?)
6. Human Rights (Self Explanatory)

You don't get anything for winning except respect from your peers and probably an easier chance in getting into the next draft.

ONE LAST TWIST: You can also draft ONE geographical country border to start your nation in based on current country locations with all the benefits or harms associated with them. The only thing that counts for these borders is the physical border and the natural resources within them. Everyone has equal population.



For instance: You can pick Nigeria and try to turn all that oil into something useful, or you can draft Russia for its large land mass and natural resources, but your hippie colony might freeze to death.



Overall just have fun and check the thread often, this stuff depends on everyone remaining active.

Cool. I only have 2 guys in mind that I think other people will go after, 4 should be good enough to get at least one.

I don't understand this draft. You're drafting posters to start a new Nation-State?

Well you technically are allowed to draft anyone, but if you draft a poster you're clearly not doing it right.

alright, Imma make my pick. Kinda hard to predict who may be off the board by the time I get my 2nd one, so I'm going to go with the tried and true.

I choose Tommy J, deist, scholar and prinicpal author of the document (the declaration of independence) responsible for rise of the modern democratic nation-state. I dont neccesarily agree with every viewpoint of his, but this broadly engaged man of the enlightenment will provide a strong and smart voice in my government.

Love this quote from the wikiwack

When President John F. Kennedy welcomed 49 Nobel Prize winners to the White House in 1962 he said, "I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent and of human knowledge that has ever been gathered together at the White House – with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."[5]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Jefferson



Now, I am choosing him as a statesman and scholar (not necc a president). He was also one of the first archaeologists in North America (plus he ****ed women regardless of race or creed).


Nah, really, I am choosing him because I beleive, like him, that the foundation of a strong government is a strong citizenry. Specifically, a citizenry that owns their own means of production (in his case, agricultural land or independent farmer/landowners) and is beholden to no one for thier subsistence or economic livelihood. Hes a republican (in the true sense of the world) looking for communities to provide the mandates for the government rather than vice versa.
