Some isharians we've recently created the iSharia region in NationStates. Although NationStates is neither a war game that can be win nor a complex politics simulator, it's a good source for some lulz.

The member countries of the iSharia region are:

1. Zayk's Emirate of Horsefolk.
2. Slereah's Empire of Uridimma.
3. Cev's Free Land of Cevlaconia.
4. cntrational's Most Serene Republic of Haon.
5. ObsequiousNewt's *wéyḱs of Dheghoom.
6. Smaug's Democratic Republic of Yahtzee Germany.
7. The Sultanate of Rabu Ando Pisu.
8. The Armed Republic of Venuztan.
9. H13's Confederacy of Brachyura.
10. YaaliAnnar's Sultanate of Jabulsa and Jabulqa.
11. Anguipes' Armed Republic of Free Democratic Junta.
12. H13's Rogue Nation of Happy-funbubblegreatland.
13. The Dominion of Sad-nuh-uhbadtears.
14. The Democratic Republic of Gulagonesian Young Pioneers.

16. Zayk's People's Republic of Miekko.
17. The Theocracy of the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham.

#isharia is also a chat channel, yes, on irc.sorcery.net, where most of the Anthologicans spend their time.

i don't think that has been the attitude towards giving out the address for years, if ever.  we like new people, and sensibly *post*judge them, rather than *pre*judge them

obsequiousnewt's comment most definitely summarises the kind of person he is, though

Since my self-identification on NationStates itself seems to have slipped through the cracks, Free Democratic Junta is mine.

Well, I was working based on things like this that I had seen.

Oh, thank you for putting that link. Some quotes are still funny.

You've forgotten to list the Theocracy of the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham which is in direct competition with Cevlaconia in godliness.

Yes, the first regional poll in iSharia:

"WHEREAS currency conversion discourages international trade and imposes unnecessary costs thereon; WHEREAS the shekel is the only internationally established currency in the region and commonly serves as the standard for comparison; WHEREAS a stable shekel will encourage regional stability; WHEREAS we wish to encourage the interaction of the nations of this great region; WHEREAS we wish to enforce iSharia; RESOLVED, all nationstates in the iSharia region which utilize fiat currency shall hereby participate in a currency union of the shekel and change their national currency to the shekel; RESOLVED, all nationstates in the iSharia region which utilize a commodity currency shall be exempt from this union; RESOLVED, the Empire of Uridimma shall absolve its monopoly on the coinage and management of the shekel, and the iSharia Council will have the sole power of the coinage and management thereof, as well as the power to enforce this resolution"


The delegate representatives of Tevessaget, Autochthonesia and The Bloody Lamb have agreed on voting against the resolution and encourage the other countries to do so, since such resolution is seen as a tactic movement of imperialist nature from the Emirate of Horsefolk.

We've had this argument. So I'll just copy and paste:

"I'm not sure you could make an argument that this is an imperialist power grab. The Emirate has no control over the currency now, and will not have control over the currency later. It does, of course, helps us "penetrate" into your economies, for reasons noted in the resolution, and this is indeed what we want. But we, the Horsemen, do not believe in isolationism or hermeticism, and take it as an offense to our people that you would be prejudiced against doing business with Horsemen regardless of your opinion of their government."

We also have done nothing imperialist before, so this accusation is completely out of the blue.

Meanwhile, Tevessaget has formed an alliance for the sole purpose of demonizing Horsefolk and has begun making ridiculously radical demands of Horsefolk about its own domestic policies. Talk about imperialism... Someone's trying to set up a pretext on which to invade, occupy and control foreign lands, and it is not the Emirate of Horsefolk.
