I win all arguments by default.

A robust space program would be established, for the purpose of exploiting off-world resources to strengthen the economy. If a superpower like the US threatens to invade or otherwise interfere with my country's economy, I'll just let slip a comment about what a close call the Tunguska Event was, and how much of a shame it would be if another one were to occur over their airspace. Eventually, my country's seat of government and the bulk of its population would migrate to space so that if such an event were to happen, it would affect us the least.

The government that runs the day-to-day operations of the country would be an experiment in technocracy, where those best able to run the various sectors of society are the ones in charge. I will actually listen to the advice my experts give me, factor them into my decision-making process, and insist that everyone else in government do the same. The technocracy's executive powers will be expanded upon my death to fill the resulting power vacuum. All this is to ensure that my country is in capable hands, even long after my death.

My country's educational system would be one that would be the envy of the rest of the world, with the highest standards and the best results. Tuition would be freely available as a privilege of citizenship (paid for through taxes), but would also be open to foreign exchange students for a reasonable per-term fee (the children of citizens would be granted tuition as if they were citizens themselves until their fifteenth birthday, after which they must apply for citizenship in order to continue to receive free tuition, although tuition would be such that one could work part-time and still afford to pay full tuition without it being too much of a financial burden).

Citizenship would be something to be earned in my country, rather than being a consequence of birth as is the case in other countries throughout the world. Citizenship would be conferred upon people who sign up for tours of military service, community service, disaster relief, or for those who possess Doctorates in any field from an accredited university. Privileges of citizenship include freely available tuition, the right to challenge for office (office holders are encouraged to devise a suitable test for challengers, and if a challenger passes, then that challenger is promoted to sub-office holder for a period of time to learn the ropes of office under the tutelage of the challenger's predecessor), the right to bring petitions to government, the right to benefit from a healthy government retirement plan, as well as assorted social perks such as respect for one's accomplishments in much the same way as with military veterans.

Also, the roads and other infrastructure would be continually kept in working order, and the trains would run on time.


I like you; those're some neat ideas you've got there! I particularly like the "earning your citizenship" part.

Do you realize those two things are mutually exclusive?

I would try my best in uniting the world through peace talks or wars. I would also work on creating a communistic-capitalism market.

Not sure if you're joking or being serious... Why in the world do you have something against people under 18 buying and listening to music?! I'm not trying to be mean or pick a fight, but please explain your reasoning - I love music, I've always listened to all sorts of music, I can't imagine why it would upset you and justify life imprisonment.

I'm only half joking.
It's related to the annoying popularity of teenyboppers music.

Ah now I see. In that case I can understand where you're coming from... I myself have never liked that kind of music either (I tend to listen to things like The Cranberries, Metallica, Dexys Midnight Runners, The Cure, Feist, Kate Bush and Siouxsie and the Banshees) and find the prepubescent screaming fangirls annoying. Maybe you could force them all to listen to real music if you became a dictator?

Form a club of the dictators of the world. Then I would have them all meet at once, but I would have a double to stand in for me, for I would then promptly bomb that institution and take over their countries. I would then form the countries into one, and, being how big we are, conquer many smaller countries until we can try for the bigger and more powerful ones. Through this, I would eventually try to take the whole world and make it one country. But, despite how it was found, make it the best country in the world. After all, America wouldn't exist without near genocide of the Native Americans.
