* CatharsisFactor: One of the reasons the game is addictive.
* GameplayDerailment: Nationstates stands out as a franchise whose methods of playing the game could almost all be considered forms of GameplayDerailment. Perhaps the most extreme example is the interregional combat system that players have improvised out of World Assembly elections, regional ejection mechanics, and huge amounts of MetaGame coordination. WordOfGod says that the creator didn't anticipate this but still finds it immensely entertaining.
