I'm Andrew Roush, and I founded Kambali in mid-November 2004. Kambali is more or less how I'd run a country, though I can't say that with much certainty.

I'm 18 years-old and I live in central Texas. I start attending the University of Texas this summer (Hook 'em, Horns!) and will be majoring in Government/International Relations.

Besides that, I'm a musician (I play percussion, proud member of Teal Sound Drum Corps 2004), and I do a lot of other stuff...

Anyway, that's the very basics.

What about pics of everyone? Or is that too personal?

I'm Chris Jackson, and I founded this nation...erm, about a week ago now.

I'm actually not that much of a stranger to NationStates, having tried and failed to create several RPing nations over the past few years. To let you in on a little secret, I'm actually the typist that was behind Rodavia (I had Morocco and leaky smallpox missiles) and Euro-Switzerland. Both died and faded away due to me having too much college work, but third time lucky (I hope.)

I'm 17 (18 in June), English, and currently attending Sixth Form College before my exams in four weeks time. Then, I will (hopefully) be attending the University of Bath and doing a Bachelorate of Arts in Politics, with a minor in Economics.

Are you going to find Islam and change your name to Mahmoud Abdul Rauf like the Chris Jackson that played hoops for the Denver Nuggets?

My name's actually Willem Andres, which not many people know because when I moved to the US I kind of hid the fact that I had an Afrikaaner first name.  I currently live in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, which blows because it's growing way too fast.  I have citizenship in South Africa and in the United States (reasons:  I was born in SA and moved to the US as a permanent).  I founded NSA when I decided I was getting bored with Bellanique in NSEurope.  I still run that country by the way.

I was born in Pretoria, South Africa.  We later moved to Bloemfontein and I lived there for a while until we moved to the US when I was about 17 years old.  My mum is a French-Canadian Afrikaaner (weird combination) and my dad is a full-blooded Afrikaaner.  I speak English, Afrikaans, French, German, and Spanish (not a lot, but enough).  I attempted to learn Xhosa and Zulu, but as an Afrikaaner, it's a bit hard because I still sort of speak English with a bit of an Afrikaaner accent.  Although my official accent sounds more British than anything.  

I went was in primary school most of my life in SA then when we moved I was introduced to the ever-so-drug-infested Seneca Valley HS in Harmony, Pennsylvania.  Oh yeah, lemme tell ya.  Beautiful campus but you could buy heroin on the third floor.  

I currently attend Penn State University at Beaver to finish my core classes and then I'm headed to Goethe Universität in Frankfurt, Germany.  I major in International Relations and minor in International Business.  I'm also taking Standard French so that I know more than just québecois and créole haïtien.  

My favourite food is filet mignon and fresh imported South African lobster (only good at the Georgetowne Inn on Mt. Washington).  My favourite drink is Dr. Pepper (never had it in SA).  My favourite candy is Starbursts (never had it in SA either).  

Aspirations:  I want to work for the South African government as an ambassador to Germany or France.

That's me in a nutshell.

Andy reminds me, what's everyone's aspirations?

Personally, I'd like to work in the US State Department/Foreign Service, ideally as an ambassador in west Africa or as a US representative, attache, etc. at the UN. After I finish my undergraduate studies at UT, I'd like to get a gradutate degree, perhaps at Georgetown or in Europe.

I'm about to begin intensively studying foreign languages, any suggestions?  :)

No. :) Short answer, eh?

My own aspirations is to go into Politics when I am old enough. By "go into", I mean I would like to stand for Parliament at some point and (maybe someday) get a government position.

I'd like a job in the US State Dept. I think it would be awesome to represent the US in any nation in Europe.  Other than that, right now I'm just wanting to live a normal life, get married, family, etc, etc... At some point in my life I want to pick up duel citizenship as a Canadian. Other than that...

This poor Oklahoman, is going to continue to yell Tuck Fexas, and hope we still have a chance to win the Red River Shootout without Jason White and what seems like half our team that left for the draft.

Furthermore, sports marketing sounds very cool.

My name is Jamie MacIver, and I am a blast from your past.

A few of you older folks may remember Engleland, the democratic marxist state that simply would never work  if an ounce of realism was put into the equasion, or more likely you would remember Chuda, the first non-despotic state in Africa, the belligerent conquerors of a large ammount, sworn enemies of Akhtendum and victors (or so i say :P) of the East African war.

After a couple attempts are reviving Chuda a while back i lost interest in it and gave up on it. Today though is the first general election in England (which I am from btw) that i was eligible to vote in and it got me thinking about politically minded stuff so i decided to try this again, with an attempt at a nation that would be far more realisitic than the likes of Engleland, and less contraversial than the likes of Chuda.

I am 19, currently working in a bar saving money for university this year (i start in september) where i will go on to study Philosophy. My education so far consists of A-level in Philosophy, Psychology, English Literature and Maths (not that most people here know what a-levels are...)

What are my aspirations? To be supreme Dictator of the World of course! Failing that i'd like to earn lots of money. I have top secret plans for both which i cannot disclose cause you might steal them!

Oh yeah, im also highly paranoid and i am being watched by the pod people...

Oh crap now they know im on to them.
