Nightmare Fuel / NationStates

Go To
The war machine begins its cycle once again...

It's a game about making your own nation and running it how you want to. Now, considering what nations in real life have done, it's only natural that this trope should be present...note 

  • Station 12 is perfection, Station 12 cannot be questioned..
  • Mekanta. That is all.
  • The C'tan likewise; despite his Necrons being generally more benevolent, he can still drag out the nightmare fuel.
  • The Kraven Corporation. *shudder*
    • It is such a nightmare that it called it most advance Technology Nightmare tech, because it described the country.
  • Trevlandia The Great. It's a fandom nation for the cartoon Sidekick, ruled by an aged up Trevor, who murdered his own FAMILY, and brainwashes people to worship him. What caused all this? Eric's mysterious death, which may or may not be Trevor's fault. *shudder* Never going to watch the show the same way again, the nation was inactive for a while, now it's back up... oh, wait it's now inactive again...Oh Wait, It's Back Up, Now It's Inactive Again.
  • The Toy Theocracy. TTT's first thread speaks for itself; Happy Christmas!
    • Much like Station 12 above, the Toy Theocracy seems to have vanished.
  • Darkarbia as well. Andrew Ryan would be proud of this "ultra-capitalistic" (their state religion!) abomination of a country. Even their flag is just a golden dollar sign on green ground.
  • Supreme Authority. To simply put it, everything about the nation, as told in its factbooks, are pretty disturbing and nightmare fuel filled. The nation's Summary even says it's inspired by the worst parts of Nazi Germany, North Korea, and various other dictatorships.
  • Valyskria. Based on the policies it's clearly not a place you'd want to go visit. The legalization of Human Sacrifices is the icing on the cake.

How well does it match the trope?
