Sure!

Frist off, I'd like to clarify that Aryax is built from scratch over many (>20) failed attempts and with particular stat goals in mind (max Authoritarianism, very high Ideological Radicality). Experience has helped me a lot in memoriing and learning which issues have which effects to select only the desirable outcomes I want. Finally, I use a certain site to check for stat effects to prevent them from harming the nation:

This is a rough sum up.

Experience is something I definitely don't have, but I'll try my best anyway! Also, thanks for the website, it would help a ton

Iíve noticed the same thing. For example, if I allowed my nation to have child gambling, it would most definitely harm my country

Sorry, it was kind of a rushed reply because I had little time, here is the full story.

When I create a nation, I usually do it with a stat goal in mind. Aryax's predecessor, a nation called Steprianka, had as goal having both maximum Authoritarianism and maximum Economy. However, it accidentally hit #1 in the world for Ideological Radicality for three months. Soon Chads United (current #1) surpassed it and not much later I missclicked and threw away the nation.

I decided to try again, this time focusing explicitly on Ideological Radicality, and Aryax is the result. To create a nation like Aryax, you need to:

  • Create many blank nations (at some point I had 5 at a time) with Tyrannical freedoms; reply the questions in the most oppressive manner. Done correctly, you should start with 2.33/-99/1 Freedoms. It is not possible to bring them any lower from the start, as I explain here: https://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/38794/more-on-nation-creation-process .

  • Goal number 1 is to bring down all freedoms to the minimum 0/-100/0. Political Freedom is easy (outlaw elections, for example), the others may take a lot of practice and abusing the spoiler website I linked.

  • Now time to boost the Economy, which would be at absolute 0 by this point. To do so, subsidize everything you can (check this guide: https://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/38843/improve-economy ). Use the website I linked to check for potential freedom increases, which you need to avoid at all costs.

  • Finally, time for Ideological Radicality. This one is by far the hardest, requires a lot of experience, trial and error, and memorizing (hence why you should make many nations). Generally, aggressive space programs is a somewhat easy way to do it, but other random issues related to taxation, street lighting and other bizarre themes affect Ideological Radicality too. The only way I've found is to learn through experience and trial and error here.

  • At any step, throw away any nations that don't make it until only one is left.

i accidently misclicked and ended up allowing elections again :cry: gotta get my Freedoms back down lol

Wow. So in order to have a good nation, you have to be absolutely ruthless first?

Absolutely no need to, but Los Angelica Dise was asking about having good stats, particularly on Economy, all while being a totalitarian dictator.

Finnaly! I have found another nation that has autarky!

Useless data: Americans have an average of 1.998 arms per person. So most American citizens actually have an above average number of arms, at 2.

I used to, but I find it much more interesting to roleplay around a particular (and often extreme) concept.

I try to, but the options I get with the issues don't make it easy!

Point Comfort Colony wrote:I try to, but the options I get with the issues don't make it easy!

I find that I dismiss issues where I cannot choose an option that I agree with.

Keswickholt wrote:I find that I dismiss issues where I cannot choose an option that I agree with.

Yes, I often do that as well. My political compass is 4.5 econ and -1.08 social, BTW.

i just pick whats best for the people... and the Economy... Political Freedom is pointless so i want it as low as possible

Why is political freedom pointless? And even if it is, why do you want it as low as possible?
