Diplomacy: Run a Country RPG

Hopefully we can get enough players to get this going actively. This will be a Nation Roleplaying Game. I could spend all day going into the logistics of it but we'll use light touch regulation, do what you want as long as it's somewhat realistic and follows a few ground rules.

1. Choose a REAL nation to rule. Choose your leader. Set some goals to achieve.

2. Every so often I will post the end of a turn, this will say what has happened in the world in the last 4 months, including the world economy, what uncontrolled nations are doing, natural disasters, how war's are going etc.

3. Post as often or as little as you like each turn, but you may not cover more than 4 months within a turn.

4. You may control 2 nations, but only one of these may be a "big" or developed nation (e.g. USA, China, Britain, Israel) and one smaller one (e.g. Syria, Ireland, Libya.)

5. Try to be realistic, but in the event of a war each nation posts the actions their armies take and as admin I will post how the war is going depending solely on realism and each player's strategy.

6. Organisations such as the UN, NATO and IMF still operate, it if up to each player to join/;eave them as they wish.

7. To join as a nation, just post the following template. All information on the economy must be taken from real life (Just use wikipedia)

8. I'll give reasonable time to post your nation's update but if you don't in time I'll still post the end of turn and still give update's on your country, this may result in your country falling behind somewhat so post regularly.

New applications will be accepted throughout the game

Re: Diplomacy: Run a Country RPG

Nation: Iran

Leader: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Term: 5 years

GDP: $482 Billion

National Debt: 16%

Leader's goals: Develop Nuclear Programme, Double Military spending budget, improve infrastructure and take hard line in foreign policy issues.

Other info: Although seen by many as a threat, Iran has one of the smallest spending per capita on military in the Middle East, whether or not it is developing nuclear weapons is much disputed, Israel and the USA are fierce enemies of the country's foreign policy and nuclear ambitions.

PS. I edited the template a bit to make it a bit easier to fill out.

Re: Diplomacy: Run a Country RPG

Nation: Jamaica

Leader: Snoop Lion

GDP: $24.750 billion

National Debt: $1. 825 trillion.

Unemployment Rate:12.7%

Leader's goals: International drive to legalise Cannibis, by any means necessary. World leaders have pledged to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, including the overarching goal of cutting poverty in half by 2015. There are global and national efforts to reach these Goals.

Other Info: A lot of people have claimed that Jamaica would be the best Caribbean island to visit, hands down. Jamaica vacations are jam-packed with beautiful attractions and the warmest people. This is why most travellers and jet-setters would list Jamaica as one of the best Caribbean travel destinations. If you’re still not convinced, here are the top five reasons why Jamaica has been dubbed as the best Caribbean island to visit:

1. Welcoming people. As soon as you land from the airport, you will immediately be greeted by local Jamaican people excited to provide you the best Caribbean vacation. The people in Jamaica are some of the most warm, friendly and hospitable people that you will ever meet, and because they are used to their island being a favorite tourist spot, they are more than willing to give you a tour of the area and show you around.

2. Laid back atmosphere. Jamaica vacations are not only popular because of the place; Jamaicans are very laid-back and really know how to have a good time. They are very much into dancing and music, and even if you have never tried to do any of those in your life, you would find all your inhibitions melting away as you hear the music playing. I am sure you’ve heard the saying “No Problem, Mon” – well it is true, anything you ask for they will respond with “No problem”.

3. Great food. In Jamaica you will have some of the freshest seafood and meat, and that is because it is coming directly from the sea or directly from local farmers. You will see fishermen walking along the road with fish that they just caught, you will see a farmer bringing in fresh eggs from the farm in the mornings. You will see the market overflowing the fruits and vegetables from local farms. The spicy curry and jerk seasoning is something that I guarantee you will want to take home and make for your family well after your Jamaican vacation.

4. White sandy beaches. Pristine and exotic white beaches are probably one of the most important recipes to the best Caribbean travel, and a vacation to Jamaica is the place to be. The water is crystal blue and the beach sand is clean and white. One of the most beautiful beach areas you can imagine.

5. Great Culture. When you take your vacation in Jamaica, it is highly recommended to hire a local tour guide that can take you around the island to show you the culture of local Jamaicans. Learn how they shop for their meat, or buy their fresh fish. Drink a coconut by the side of the road. Learn more about the Rastafarians or old traditional healing. Make sure to soak in the culture as well as the great food.
