USI CITY — A survey of twelve micronationalists by the National Statistics Office has revealed a notable divide amongst core political beliefs, according to the Office’s progress report.
The report, released yesterday, presented results to date with respect to three key policy areas: economics, social equality, and judicial equality. The results showed that there is no clear consensus within the community that supports any one particular ideology. For example, 31% of respondents favoured capitalism while 19% favoured each of socialism and participatory economics (the remaining 31% favoured none of those three options). Of the twelve respondents, seven believed that social standing should be based on personal achievement and five believed that individuals should be entitled to different classes of judicial rights.
The survey also asked respondents to specify their priorities, asking whether certain policies are more important at present than environmental issues. Justice outweighed the environment as a priority for the respondents, while the economy, culture and other matters did not.
For those micronationalists who have yet to participate in the survey, it remains open for further responses.
