NationStates is a government game. You get issues to solve, you can take part in the UN and move to different regions. The game seems to be quite good, and i’ve been playing since yesterday. It doesn’t require much work to play it, nor much time. You can get from two issues per day to one issue per weekday to no issues at all. The way your nation evolves is through the decisions you make. My nation is called Dathir, you can get information about Dathir here.
Visit this for something completely unrelated to NationStates but still fun.
