A lot of these nations are hard-nosed...

My nation! And it sounds Latin too!


Now let's all salute the flag and recite the national motto.

Hehe!  One of my first issues involved chickens!  Naturally, Lord Kingsley had no idea what they were talking about.  They pressed the issue and were well and truly sacked.

I found this issue today I got to be rather amusing, mostly because of the national animal I had chosen...

-----

Kifkrokia Decides:
Poisonous froads On The Dinner Table?


Government Acts
The Issue

In a bid to provide a new revenue stream for Kifkrokia's Beef-Based Agriculture industry, it has been suggested that poisonous froads could be added to the menu.

The Debate
"The fact is, the poisonous froad population is out of control," says Beef-Based Agriculture spokesperson Clint Longbottom. "We have to do something about them anyway, so why not market them as tasty snacks? We could have poisonous froad kebabs, poisonous froad pies, poisonous froad-on-a-sticks--the possibilities are endless! Let's not pass up this golden opportunity to provide a feast, if you will, for our economy."
[Accept]

"I agree that something needs to be done about poisonous froad over-population," says random passer-by Roger McAlpin, "but eating them? That's kind of gross. Let's just shoot the ones we have to and shovel their bodies into ditches like normal."
[Accept]

"I am shocked and appalled!" declared SPCA President Billy Jong-Il. "If anyone needs to be culled, it's us humans. The poisonous froads were here first, remember? We need to take this as a sign to get our industry--agriculture in particular--to back off. The poisonous froad is part of what makes Kifkrokia a great nation!"

This is the position your government is preparing to adopt.

Why the hell would people want to eat an animal renowned for being poisonous?!!  ;D

Market them in Japan, maybe?  They're always eatin' weird stuff!  It'll be a boon to your economy!

Yeah, they're big on poisonous things, like blowfish!

This game-site-thing is more amusing than it should be...

Yes you are!

You know, I was looking for an Ankh-Morpork, but nobody's done one!  I thought for sure that name would be one of the first taken!  Huh.

Well, that's not entirely true.  There's no Ankh-Morpork, but there's a New Morporkia...
