Whilst spending some time at another forum, I was encouraged by another member to collectively use a website which simulates government of a "nation" you create for yourself. The idea was that we'd have a special subforum for discussing issues of government. Of course, due to the nature of the person doing the running, it quickly went awry (those who know who i'm talking about know what I mean).
Anyway I've started my own nation there. It's in the region of Taijitu, and called Osmelia. It's currently a left-leaning college state with a population of 14 million. You can see more at this link:

I'mn particularly proud of the flag, which is a combination of canadian and english flags.
Anyone else got a nation?
