    I think I entered the same answers as before, and got Poland.

    Try again:
    1. No (Oppose conscription)
    2. Yes (porn is not the government's business, even though it is not healthy)
    3. No to abortion
    4. Yes (sex for money is not the government's business even though I don't approve)
    5. I oppose SSM
    6. Yes (capital punishment, but only for proven capital crimes)
    7. No to single-payer health insurance (American for socialized medicine)
    8. No to free college education provided by state (no problem with Aussie system)
    9. Flat income tax
    10. Government has no business regulating business (apart from stopping fraud and coercion and enforcing contracts). This might literally make me a supporter of the other option "some regulations are necessary", but usually this means more than what I think the government should do.
    11. Yes to government allowing views that challenge its authority, otherwise this is totalitarianism.
    12. Yes, state must absolutely allow free elections.
    13. Gun rights to individuals.
    14. Yes to legalizing Mary-Jane.

    Back to Liberland with those.

    Was there meant to be a link for 2019?

    Has One Nation become more economically conservative? Before they leaned to agrarian socialism, e.g. trade barriers. I thought the ON spot would be better occupied by Australian Conservatives.

    One Nation votes with the Coalition in parliament a heck of a lot and I doubt they're left-wing on things like trade unions. The Australian Conservatives weren't worth ABC's time evaluating after recording 0.59% in the NSW Upper House election.

    I think One Nation should be represented by a large fuzzy cloud, not a point, since they're all over the place

    I found the link in my email, but it doesn't work anymore.

    This time around I got a bar south and slightly east of the ALP.

    Agree with ALP 62% and Coalition 55%, which sounds about right. I wonder how much of that is them agreeing with each other.

    Opponent Tim, however, possesses no moral compass whatsoever- and obscure antecedents to boot.

    ^^^

    I am reminded of my opponent in a late-80s Aus junior lightning setting up the board with two queens instead of a king - apparently unintentionally to begin with - and then trying to claim a few moves in that as the game had started it was too late for me to do anything.

    The late Evelyn Koshnitsky came over and sorted him out in no uncertain fashion. He was welcome to persist with his claim and be removed from the tournament, or words to that effect.
