Jailblazers– socialist democracy of China - to me looks like an economy-based, leading by example country. Very up to date, very hi-tech, wise and with the leadership, aimed to develop but even in fashion – environment + human friendly.
Creativity – 3
CHI – 4
Economy – 5
Political Stability – 2,5
Human Rights – 3,5
Total: 18


Knickballer - Aristocratic Republic of Brazilia – with a mission to unify the whole South America gets my cheers, but I think falls short in taking care of the own people, although repeatedly stating it would. Plato could be the most prolific figure in the human history, but he doesn’t seem to blend in as a cultural minister. I don’t think he’s to control the masses, no… A decent bunch, anyway.
Creativity – 4
CHI – 2,5
Economy – 4
Political Stability – 3
Human Rights – 3
Total: 16,5


Embersyc - The Unified HyperCities of Emberzuela (?! what a dick) – well thought with an oil, but naturally (may be wrongly) it should become two horse race with Timmy D. Turns out, it’s not all about digging down, but being up there in the sky. My impression is that eyes being set up there high, the country relies on key figures to stay afloat on land as everything else is targeted towards the ships n space n shit.
Creativity – 5
CHI – 4
Economy – 3

Blablabla - United Mexican States – I goes there for my vacation. Seems like a country where the politics is pretty distant to the regular guy Migo, but ah. The personnel shines bright, whatever you say.
Creativity – 3
CHI – 4
Economy – 3,5
Political Stability – 4

Anti-Hero - Communist Australia – I feel like Antihero is the type that ****s your mother. This is a pile of arrogancy and cunning going all in, works or not. I give you fine for that.

CHI – 2
Economy – 2
Political Stability – 4,5
Human Rights – 1
-0,5 for not picking the god damn ZORGE. What were you thinking!!!
Total: 14



TimmyD - Saudi Arabia – I don’t have a lot to say about this. He chose culture! Way to go. Yet, I want some kind of soft power channel to get at other countries. You cannot lead by example by not taking care of the audience (? or sort). At least have a mission, like launch sates, union states and what not.
Creativity – 3,5
CHI – 4
Economy – 4,5
Political Stability – 2
Human Rights – 3,5

Iamgine - Nation of Canada – Many great people in this one, perhaps with a notion that you don’t fix what’s not broken. Although, I think the neighbour US (IRL) isn’t in that good of a shape as its rep is, and the country shouldn’t just strive to be a better version of it but get something on its own.
Creativity – 3

Economy – 3,5

CeltsG - The Christian Empire of Russia – it just seems to have so much poise and spiritual charm that makes me silent. I don’t care for Russia, it would draw the awe of the rest of them, even bein freezing wasteland that it is. To me, the group should have such a good chemistry, it’s magical.
Creativity – 5
CHI – 4
Economy – 3
Political Stability – 5
Human Rights – 3,5

LamarOdom - UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – another version of staying with what’s working, and it pretty much stays. Seems generic and just a lot of marketing, with Jesus, Diana, Shakespeare and friggin Jobs. Oh Zuckenberg. Uh.,

You know what, I would only rate defense if more of you asked for it, and especially according to what AntiHero and judges tell me to do. Because it would be kind of doing it over, exactly what I wanted to avoid.

That would played out good for you. Look out his wiki references, must have been a real dawg.

So, do I judge the defense of everyone? Because I sort of included it in the Political Stability grade, although not as much as getting physically overthrown, but as ideological/political resistance of other systems.

It is not enough for you to win, your opponents must also be crushed and humiliated?

Creativity~4.5. I like all of the planning that went into your selection of Venezuela. Since countries don't have their own category, I thought I would give you a boost here.
CHI~4. Before your write-up, I didn't see a possible way to fit Buddha into your society. The way you did so makes sense, but it still leaves me wary. Technological advances and a rapidly growing economy should keep your citizens satisfied.
Defense~1. Outside of Sun Tzu you are lacking greatly. With your rich oil reserves, you have to be very wary of invaders and at your current state, you are unprepared to deal with such a threat.
Economy~ 4.5. Lots of oil = fast flowing economy. I also like the use of Tesla for work with hyrdopower.
Political Stability~4. TJ is a very fair leader and actually a very good fit for your country. As long as Engels can be content without a communist regime, your political structure is fairly sound.
Human Rights~5. Nobody in your country is know for their destruction of human rights, and your voice of the people role in the government should prevent any wrongdoings from occurring.
Total: 24

Celtsgarlic
Creativity~ 3.5. Not terribly creative but you made some interesting selections nonetheless.
CHI~4. Living in Russia automatically loses you a point do to the harsh harsh winters. Michelangelo and a unifying Religion keep you the happiness up though.
Defense~5. Two renowned generals to protect your borders should keep you safe. And anyone dumb enough to invade you will pay the price of a cold Russian winter. Where your choice of country you before, it helps you here.
Economy 3.5~Although you don't have a great economy in place, I think that the system you offered could potentially work. Some more details needed though...
Political Stability~4.5. Constantine and Pope John Paul II may not always see eye to eye, but I like what you did here. Cardinal Richelieu could potentially provide a militaristic voice as well.
Human Rights~5. As long as your nation is content with being Christian, you will surely prosper. However, if you want to grow as a nation you will most likely have to allow other religions into your country and that could create some issues.
Total: 25.5

JailBlazers7
Creativity~4.5. Well done. Forming a socialist democracy that might work is not an easy task, but I believe you may have done it.
CHI~4. Your country should have decent resources and be technologically sufficient, but a lack of arts may prevent people from being too happy.
Defense~3.5. For a country with a lot of borders, only having one general may be tricky. Saladin is a good pick, but his talents may be stretched to wide.
Economy~5.5. Keynes, Rothschild, and Hayek form a very interesting mix of guys that should keep the money moving and secure.
Political Stability~5. I like that you have a prime minister with a few key advisors. With the right people in charge, you should be able to get a lot accomplished.
Human Rights~3.5. Slightly worried about this part. I could see Deng abusing his power at the expense of the people.
Total: 26

Will do three more tonight and the rest on Saturday.
