A SelectSmart.com Philosophy Selector by Nasania, created March 2015.
This is a work in progress. It is for nationstates game. There are four cliques in this test Imperialism, Independentism, Soveriegntism, and the anti's. Disclaimer.
             

The first selector question is below.

1. I believe in a policy of extending the power and influence of the region through whatever means available, be they military or cultural or some other alternative (colonialism could fall under this.)
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

2. Each region has the right to the pursuit of power and greatness. Even if that greatness conflicts with localized interests.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

3. Practical Politics should be the region's main concern. All other considerations are secondary.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

4. Choices of battles and targets, allies and enemies should all be driven by the region’s foreign policy objectives. Ideological or moralistic issues should never enter into a regional decision.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

5. Every community deserves sovereignty. By virtue of its very existence, a community, no matter how small, is imbued with the right to continue that existence without interference from outside agents.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

6. “Tagging regions”, “taking delegacies”, “clearing RMBs”, and “spreading influence” are all convenient, euphemistic ways of saying the same thing: “disrupting communities”.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

7. I am dedicated to preserving the independence of any region and its native community from outside aggression. The only time anyone may safely say a region no longer has a community is when that region ceases to exist.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

8. Dominions or colonies established by a region are an extension of the sovereignty of their mother, but dominions stolen by force from a pre-existing community, are not legitimate. They may, and should, be liberated from their occupier.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

9. No region has the sovereign right to violate another region’s own sovereignty.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

10. Imperialism is simply an extension of my region’s foreign policy, if your politics jeopardizes my region's(and allies) stability and power, your 'sovereignty' is forfeit.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

11. I advocate a policy that is based on mutual defense given the understanding that most regions should be protected from invasion.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

12. I believe that every community in every region has the right to make its own choices and decide its own future, and oppose imperialism in all its forms - whether it be the direct methods of raiders and Imperialists or the less direct methods used by many regions and organizations to exert influence in places they don’t belong.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

13. Generally speaking, every community deserves its independence. The only people that should guide a community are those that call it home. Anyone else is infringing upon their sovereignty.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

14. The region should have a strong and vibrant internal community with a political system that encourages stability, participation and growth. Regional life and identity are driven primarily by the political and cultural elements of the region, and not by a focus on military activity for its own sake.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

15. I fundamentally reject the Raider/Defender dichotomy and do not simply take a position in the middle of the spectrum. Instead, we should maximize other arenas of gameplay, such as: maximizing regional activity and stability; increasing the region’s influence and impact in the interregional stage; developing strong ties with like-minded communities and regions; and protecting the sovereignty of friendly and aligned regions.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

16. Imperialism helps spread ideas, increase activity in regions, build communities, increase stability, and overall are a force of progress in NationStates.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

17. Policy should be decided by the rational evaluation of decisions on an issue-by-issue basis, based on how they serve the regional interests. Dogma should have no place in foreign policy.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

18. My region has a vested interest in pursuing an active and prolific foreign policy, staying at the forefront of the interregional diplomatic scene. My region does not a priori or universally favor neutral or moderate positions, and does not shy away from engaging in interregional events.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

19. I am not averse to collaborating with Raider, Defender, or other regions that do not subscribe to my ideology. However, such collaboration must exist on the basis of shared mutually beneficial interests, and on the condition that the other parties will acknowledge and respect my region’s freedom to act in any capacity its self-interests dictate, and will not try to impose their own ideology on me, or my region.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

20. I do not recognize any external and universal moralistic elements as dictating military policy. The military is an instrument of foreign policy, at the disposal of the government, not an instrument of dogmatism.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

21. The military should never a priori and universally take a position against any type of military operations for external moralistic reasons, nor does it commit to conducting a single type of military operations for its own sake. The Military should always be used for practical political objectives.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

22. I believe that every region has a fundamental right to conquest. Be it economical, ideological, cultural, political, or military.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

23. My region's policy of exerting influence on the interregional stage is simply region-building. It may at times conflict with local interests, but in the long-run will benefit both our regions as a whole by providing protection from invaders, increasing interregional cooperation, and providing a stable system of political discourse.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low

24. My region's hegemony actually helps communities collaborate, cooperate, and ultimately creates a more dynamic atmosphere in gameplay.
  
  
  No preference  
Prioritize your choice above:
High
Medium
Low
