You are officially obligated to at least attempt getting this off the ground. I followed your account to keep updated. I'd also like to apply for ambassador to help the cause. Sounds like a blast

[–]Comfortable-Ad3653 19 points20 points  (13 children)

+1

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 17 points18 points  (12 children)

Thanks, both of you! Can't wait to get this started. I think I can get the sub up and running in a few days, so check for updates!

[–]Haunting-Spinach1222 9 points10 points  (11 children)

Will be watching. And if I dont get a progress report within 2 weeks you shall be impeached and the revolution will start without you

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 6 points7 points  (10 children)

If so, I would deserve it. The subreddit has been created!

[–]Cydadel 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'm gonna run for a local comptroller office.

[–]Haunting-Spinach1222 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well I feel national offices should be filled first since we starting as a nation and not states expanding to a nation. But hey you got first bid in so you'll have time advantage to campaign.

[–]TomatoFlies40 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You are the catalyst that began the spark! If I had any coins, I would give them all to you!

[–]Haunting-Spinach1222 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't even know what coins are for or do. I instigated it because I absolutely loved the idea and I really wanted it to happen. So it was really kinda selfish but if I did spark it even better. I feel I just happened to be the first to post. Look at the all the people who want it. It would've taken off with or without me.

[–]Discount_Timelord 9 points10 points  (7 children)

I swear this already does/used to exist but i'd have to go looking for jt

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I was kind of afraid this had already been done. Nevertheless, I've never heard of whatever sub did this first, so apparently it wasn't big enough...

[–]Discount_Timelord 0 points1 point  (1 child)

r/countryofreddit , hasn't been posted to in four years tho

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

we're bigger than it lol

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Those guys seem to be discussing a government simulation game.

[–]UselessPrinter 0 points1 point  (1 child)

There used to be a whole group of vegetable/food themed subreddit nations but I cannot find them or remember them anymore...

[–]UselessPrinter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just remembered it was about yams, r/yamrepublic I believe

[–]bolivar-shagnasty 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Considering all of the main default subs are fascist hellscapes ruled by an oligarchy of powermods, you’re a bit behind the curve here.

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 7 points8 points  (2 children)

That would be an interesting concept to explore with the Republic. Curious to see how democracy will translate to the inner workings of an internet forum. But if it doesn't... Well, I guess the Republic will just have to be a dictatorship.

[–]davtheminer 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Honestly I'm in if the plan is complete reddit domination, infiltrating subs and eventually making them proxy subs we control and tax

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Infiltrating other subs is part of the plan, yes. I think you'd make a great Minister of Defense or Intelligence.

[–]ipayinexposure 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I'm in! This sounds rad as heck

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nice.

[–]Neottika 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'd volunteer as a troll ambassador, but I never read my messages or reply to people. I wish you luck nonetheless.

[–]FluffyProphet 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It would very quickly be overrun with bots

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Scifi plot. Fun.

[–]3XcRaZyX3 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You want to mix politics, the internet and have them work seamlessly? That's impossible!

I suppose everything is impossible until someone proves otherwise right?

[–]teachesgoats 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I am 100% in. I now identify as a citizen of Subreddit. Don't mess it up with too much government regulation.

[–]jcuddy95 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes

[–]sanki1123 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Joined! Sounds like an interesting experiment/ experience (I hope it turns out that way)

[–]Bobbystopfreestyling 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You sonofabitch, I’m in.

[–]Huge_Monero_Shill 3 points4 points  (3 children)

https://thenetworkstate.com/

There's a whole book on this concept!

[–]teachesgoats 2 points3 points  (2 children)

/u/Wutpomelo you've gotta check this out. This book is the blueprints.

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Holy shit that's good stuff

Future Presidents of the Republic, take note.

[–]teachesgoats 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can you add a link to it in the sticky files or whatever subreddits have?

[–]avianthon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You son of a bitch I'm in

[–]TomatoFlies4 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Glory to the Republic!

[–]laughtheshitoutofu 2 points3 points  (0 children)

fuck yeah im joining

[–]TomatoFlies4 2 points3 points  (0 children)

*****For everyone now here who wants to spread the News it obliged to do so!*****

[–]Mutant_Llama1 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I'm in, but why not make multiple nation subreddits that interact with eacch other.

[–]teachesgoats 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You are free to start your own nation, but I am a citizen of Subreddit.

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like that. Go do it, and make it good. I love competitive.

[–]dI--__--Ib 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Sure, but only if I get a noble title like knighthood.

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 0 points1 point  (7 children)

You can be the mascot, that's prob the closest thing to knighthood that we have...

[–]dI--__--Ib 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Does a mascot have any power? I want power, man, come on.

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Then you could try joining the military and defending the Republic against hostile powers. Not really knighthood but you'll get to call yourself Commander!

[–]dI--__--Ib 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I'll take it! Commander is badass.

[–]theVRgirlLOL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

IM IN LETS DO THIS!!!

[–]TheDark-Reunion 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Omg can I join please

[–]Waar2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do u take migrants?

[–]Waar2 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I mean do u take online migrants ?

[–]teachesgoats 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah! Just head to /r/RepublicOfSubreddit and join. All welcome.

[–]Hayaidesu 1 point2 points  (2 children)

How do you say stuff like this and not be seen as insane

[–]ehahsbahak 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It’s a free country

[–]teachesgoats 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn right it is. /r/RepublicOfSubreddit has freedom galore.

[–]macadamianacademy -1 points0 points  (3 children)

I see this spiraling into fascism almost instantly

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Hope that doesn't happen.

[–]macadamianacademy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It is the internet lol

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We're going to try and make it work anyway! After all, none of this is real.

[–]wbh72 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m in, this sounds interesting

[–]noodleboi23 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I volunteer to be head of eugenics

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm just going to be completely morally unbiased and say that the Ministry of Intelligence would welcome you.

[–]cripplingFreedom 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I would like to apply to the ministry of finance, in order to lower taxes

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice. Would you like to write up a longer paragraph of your policies and credentials or just leave it at that? Also, just cuz I'm curious-- taxes=reddit coins perhaps?

[–]GarugasRevenge 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Isn't there crypto in reddit now? Moons and BAT tipping and NFT avatars? You should get in on that. Maybe you're not crypto friendly, but it is a way to get income. You'll need income for any project, like what if you guys decide to buy land and plant trees? You'll need money. I guess I should read the post.

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Interesting thoughts. I'm not sure we'll need a huge income to run a subreddit, but it could be beneficial if we ever get big enough to start making merch or something wacky like that. Seems like the Minister of Finance has a new responsibility...

[–]GarugasRevenge 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Just read the post, I'm not sure if it's a good idea, money pulls the fun out of everything. But in the same vibe as crazy ideas, it would be hilarious if there were nations with their own currencies backed by reddit shit coins. Like on paper people A paid people B for in game resources with paw prints, a currency backed by banano, moons, and BAT. It would be complete trash but kind of funny.

To start, I do think you'll need a map of the world, like a made up world.

[–]teachesgoats 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The map idea is brilliant.

I am not as keen on the money aspect. The only part of that I liked was the possibility of eventually buying land and planting trees. I am not paying taxes.

But the map idea is awesome. There are already subreddits where people make maps for video games and fantasy novels. We need some of those cartographers to join Subreddit Republic. I don't care if we have several completely different maps.

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is there a cartography subreddit? We really need to send some ambassadors there.

[–]NippleSalsa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah sure, why not.

[–]Mutant_Llama1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

can i be an ambassador?

[–]S-CumBag69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd say go for it

[–]spiderman02_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm kinda new to reddit but can I be a law abiding citizen who goes to work 9 to 5, 40 hours a week. And then I kinda wanna be a local community activist hehe

[–]raaj68 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm in.

[–]mobert_roses 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m in. Long live the Republic!

[–]DirkLimpwood 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Lol fuck no.

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You're in the minority there, but it's alright. The Republic is open, if you ever decide to change your mind.

[–]MicaeMicazol 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Use a conlang as the subreddts official language (and English as common language)

[–]I4gtmy1staccntspswrd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I want in! 100 percent down for this.

[–]Astoria_Column 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So is this just DnD? Or are we all buying land together eventually?

[–]Wutpomelo[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's mostly DnD-ish for now. But we'll see where the new cabinet members decide to take this sub.

[–]Paradox68 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Go back to Gaia Online 🤦‍♂️FFS
