Transcript of Top 10 Things That a Country Needs

Usually played like a march or a hymn, a national anthem is a patriotic type of music that evokes and eulogizes the history, struggles, and traditions of the country and its people. The purpose and importance of a national anthem is pretty straightforward: to instill a strong sense of pride and patriotism towards one's country. Sometimes, certain etiquette may be involved in the playing of a country's anthem, and usually involve military honours, standing up, removing headwear, etc.; in diplomatic situations the rules may be very formal.
#10: A National Anthem
A country's flag may merely be a piece of coloured fabric, but it is intended to represent so much more. For those who have fought battles to defend their country, the flag stands for all that they have suffered and sought to protect such as freedom and/or the country's order and stability. For those who have immigrated from another nation, their adopted country's flag symbolizes the reasons they left their home and the principles that drew them to their new home. Much like a country's national anthem, a country's flag represents not just the country but also its history and its future.
#9: A National Flag
Currency is important because it is a means of exchange for goods that might not be easily exchangeable. For example, how many beers equal the value of a pool? It is a way of making things less implicit by applying a value to a good or service that one can exchange money for. This makes money a unit of account. That is economics talk for a number and, in the United States, a dollar sign to understand what something is worth explicitly. In other words, currency is a way of showing how much wealth a country has.
#8: Currency/Money
This one's more straight to the point; laws are the guidelines by which people need to abide by in order to protect everyone's ability to enjoy, travel, work and entertain themselves in a society. Without laws there would be nothing one could do if another was to violate their peace and enjoyment. As such it is stated and enforced in order to maintain peace and order as opposed to complete anarchy where there is no law.
#7: The Laws of the Land
A population helps the country in many ways. First of all, it represents the diversity of a country as well as its history and ancestry. Secondly, it helps the government to analyse how to do the planning for the population because it's the responsibility of the government to look after its people in all aspects. Finally, it benefits the economy because the size of the population determines how many jobs need to be made in order to compensate which means more money for everyone.
#6: An Ethnic Group of People/Population
Ideology, including its tenets, is a motivating force for a nation, which is striving hard to bring stability and homogeneity to its nationhood. It provides the binding force to the scattered groups in a society and brings them close to each other on a common platform. Ideologies compel their adherence to follow a joint- linked action for the accomplishment of their goal(s). Also, ideologies give shape to the revolutions and create new cultures and civilizations. They stress on their adherents to insist on the realization of their ideal through total transformation of society. An urgent agreement with each other on the ideals is the most vital pre-requisite of an ideology.
#5: National Ideology/Tenets
The location of a government is important because it affects the politics and (slightly) the structure of the country's government. There are three kinds of location: Central, Federal, and Confederate. Both central and federal are similar in concept except that a federal government has distinct powers at various levels authorized or delegated to it by its member states. Confederate, or sometimes called a confederacy, is the location type of which the states or provinces are their own distinct nation with the central government being a council of some sort that deals with the problems from all the states.
#4: The Location of the Power (Central, Federal, or Confederate?)
The question of who has the power is an important question indeed, as it is an important factor on what kind of government the country will have. There are two kinds of rule these days: rule of the many and rule of the few. If the country is ruled by its people and they elect their rulers, then it will have a somewhat democratic kind of government. If a country is ruled by either the elite, a specific political party, or just one person, then it becomes more of an aristocratic, communist, or plutocratic kind of government
#3: Who Has the Power of the Land?
This one is connected to Number 3 in the sense of how much power does the ruler, or rulers, have. There are three kinds of power: Limited, Totalitarian, and Anarchy. A limited government would have power based on the limit it has, like the U.S. president, for example, can't declare war without approval of Congress, but he, or she, can declare an executive order without any approval. The opposite of a limited government is a totalitarian government, of which the ruler(s) have unlimited power and have complete authority over everyone's lives. Anarchy means that the government has no power at all, or there may be no government at all.
#2: How Much Power does the Leader(s) have?
This one is the most important thing that a country needs; the type of government determines who has the power, how mush power, and the structure of the country as a whole. It also affects how the people live their lives whether it be free or enslaved, indebted or not indebted, and so on. The only thing that it doesn't affect is the location of the governemnt wheher it would be unified, federal, or confederate.
