venkateshwarans, you have some broad ideas... And leat397, your first idea on smoking may cause a lot of civil unrest, leading to crime and a lower quality of life... Interesting.

If i will be a ruler in my country, I will:

1. Strip from the government service all corrupt officials who is the very reason my country became so poor.
2. Implement a countrywide IT development plan to help streamline egovernment services, produce more employment opportunities, eradicate corruption by using cashcards when paying.
3. Elevate the quality of education by providing schools and books for the students and making sure the teachers also passes a quality assurance exam.
4. Drug trafficker, pushers, users will be punished at the full extent of the law.
5. Corrupt officials will be punished the same

That are my wishful thinking. Hoping that somehow at least 1 will come true Smile
Mr Smith
I am from New Zealand, by ruling a country I would not take advantage of it, I would use my powers to bring greatness to the country, and improve thoughts from international visiters about our wonderful country.

1. What I would do first, and definately first of all, I will do my hardest to give better control of the punishment, and jail time for those who have broken the law. For those who murder someone, what on Earth will twenty years of prison do to them? The whole time they are in there, they will think of what they have done, murder. I wonder what will be on their minds when they come out?

1a. By controling the jail time, we can further improve the minds of the weird ones, and not just having them sit around watching cable tv in their cells. They will be out on the streets, chained together in distinctive clothing, fixing up the streets, and doing jobs that only very un-educated people would do, such as cleaning up after storms, or natural/human disasters. This way, they will serve their time, and be humiliated by the people, as this should be what is happening to them, not given free food, free tv, a free bed, all for robbing a store, or causing absolute terror to our civilians.

2. Child support program - Yes, I know there are many of these out in the world, and in NZ. But what the hosts of the groups don't know, is the amount of people too scared to ring up, or write into the place that can dreadfully help them revive their stress. These programs will be aimed to support those that are in stress most, which is normally teenagers.

3. Hospitals - Ever went to a hospital, got asked to sit and wait for ten minuites, but ending up having to wait over an hour? This problem must be fixed. How we can fix this, is by making more hospitals over different areas, and more doctor clinics around small towns.

4. Police - At the moment this is already happening, but it could do with more improvements. The pay for being a police officer must be increased, and the requirements need to be more specific, instead of only needing to be 18, controlling a gang of 30's.

5. Age Restrictions -

5a. Alchohol: Will be raised to 21, 18 being able to drink, 21 able to purchase. Fines will be increased to help along the community, and to teach these drunks a lesson. Support for alchoholics is FREE, bloddy well use it, or get a nice fine for the actions you take when drunk.

5b. Driving: If the teacher of an average classroom of 15 year olds need to remind the students "I'm going to the staff room to photocopy some papers, be good while I'm gone", how the heck can they be trusted on the roads? Sure it isn't everyone that is bad, and many would have their dreams shot up the bum because of this restriction. This will not only control the amount of cars on the road, it will also control the safety of pedestrians, vehicles, and everyone/everything else.

5c. Smoking: The price of ciggarettes will be given a warning, that in one year's time, the price will double, if not, TRIPPLE. Smoking is killing many people, including the families of whom smokes. Of course this will not stop people from smoking all together, but it will definately make an impact on buying the drug. Dairies will end up not being able to afford buying and selling smokes, and it will soon end. The years notice will gove the smokers a years time to quit smoking, there are many free help lines, and many products to help you stop smoking. As for the age, it shall be increased to 25.

No need to do any more, I am almost certain this is enough to improve the country, dramatically.
bigdan
1. Get rid of the Howard Government's workplace relations laws
2. Reduce funding of private schools and redirect it to public schools
3. Allow same-sex marriages
4. Roll-out broadband across 100% of the country and make it somewhat affordable
5. As a temporary measure, drop the GST and part of the excise tax on petrol, drop the prices by about 20%
6. Get the troops out of Iraq, and stop sniffing at Bush's crotch as much
7. Put more funding into health and education

That sounds about right. Wink

kikass
i am from India:
1. adopt a 2 party government model.. no more parties based on regions or religions or castes, etc... 2 are enough...
2. end corruption... even if it means executing all the corrupt people to set examples... i do NOT support the death penalty.. but sometimes it is just the right punishment.. and corrupt officials living off money meant for poor deserve it...
3. clean up the politics scene by not letting any uneducated or criminal kinda people enter..
4. bring the people in sepratist regions into the mainstream so that they do not feel left out....

5. stamp out terrorism... even if that means waging war... India has suffered for too long...

Education, education, education.
Decrease stupidity.
Yeah, right.
Only way to do it is to make being smart (a geek) not a bad thing.
Which won't happen if the best thing one can be in these American high-schools is good-looking, popular, etc.
Once geekism is cool, we might catch up with Japan.
Which means the economy would go up.
Which is #2 (#3?)
And we'd have money for health insurance for all the fewer people who need it.
I think I'd make it possible to get benefits from the government only if you work or are in school.
Work can include copying encyclopedias.
Which might make some people smarter, and perhaps even convince them that they want to go to college or specialise in a specific field.
In which case they'd be able to do part-time community college (which would be either free or extremely cheap for those who work) and part-time work.
Part of the above is, if you haven't realised it yet, making college not so expensive!
How do I do all this?!
It's a good thing I'm not your president! Wink
PatTheGreat42
I'd totally ramp up military spending as a first step in my plan to take over the world.
Sabrina
If I ruled my country, I'd prohibit permanent immigration to the islands, unless invited by me.

At the moment it's compulsory for everyone to learn both English and French at all schools so I'd probably throw in a few more 'compulsory' languages like Chinese, Indian & any European language. Very Happy

I'd legalize polygamy (in the sense of marrying more than one) for both man and women. I'll force everyone to be catholic (I don't have a problem with any other religion but I think life will be simpler this way, lol). And finally, anyone commiting a crime such as murder, robbing by breaking & entering will be executed.

If I ruled a country

Soulfire
Well, I only have two right now, if I think of more I would post. This topic sure is getting me thinking though.

1) Create a short-term, well-thought out plan to train Iraqi police and as more Iraqi forces are trained, move our forces out. Basically a slow, but steady evacuation of Iraq by American forces.

2) This may be a push toward Communism, or we'll be nice and say Socialism, but slightly more (uncorrupted) governmental control over the oil and petroleum industries.
