NationStates is a free nation simulation game. Build a nation and run it according to your own warped political ideals. Create a Utopian paradise for society's less fortunate or a totalitarian corporate police state. Care for your people or deliberately oppress them. Join the United Nations or remain a rogue state. It's really up to you.
A few Redbrick members have nations and have set up a community. If you are a Redbrick member and have created a nation, you can join them at 'The Redbrick Islands'. Once you've joined, make sure to drop a line in the forum to say what your nation is and your Redbrick username. The password for 'The Redbrick Islands' is "karlpodesta".
Make sure to regularly check the Redbrick newsgroup 'redbrick.rpg.nationstates' for more information on 'The Redbrick Islands'.
