    I would bet this is based on average literacy, income vs poverty, etc. if you could not vote for your own country...

    In simple terms - For me, this will narrow the field, YMMV - show me:
    - a top notch economy
    - a population that has increasing diversity (albeit not always easily assimilated)
    - has handled political upheaval and come out stronger and more inclusive than before
    - can pay previous debts
    - has future economic viability
    - and has the ability to not be a punchline when you say "The _______ military has sent out an elite unit to deal with the specific and dangerous part of the foe, and they have deployed several divisions of infantry and artillery provide a safe haven for a large population in the area. Their air force provides both air cover and also escorts civilian supply planes and provides humanitarian aid..."

    Not many left in the top 20.

    Here's your official SNAIL Welcome Post!
    Thanks for your interest!
    Here's what you need to know (and do) in order to join:

    We run a clean league by enforcing a strict penalty system based on the SNAIL OLR (which is a modified version of the GTP OLR). We also expect all of our drivers to know and follow The Good Racecraft Guide. Please become versed in both if you aren't already. Once that is complete, please follow the steps below to complete your entry into the league:

    1. You start a conversation and add @CoachMK21, @Dragonwhisky, @JLBowler, @nmcp1 & @zer05ive as participants. The conversation title should be "Request To Join".

    2. SNAIL Administrators will respond with specific instructions on what you need to accomplish to join the SNAIL [Spec] Racing club. Sunday races are organized exclusively through the GT6 Community features within the game.

    3. Place the following links (URLs) in the favorites (or bookmarks) in your web browser for quick reference. Please make every effort to read and understand the following links. Over the years a great deal of time and effort has gone into creating this league and we would like nothing more than to have you but we ask that you take the time and effort to do your homework. 99.9% of any question you may have about SNAIL can be found in the posts below.
    4. You drive fast and clean on Sunday :tup:

    Again, the original post has everything you need to know about what to expect on Sunday night and what you will need to have completed in order to be competitive. If you have any questions, please feel free to post your question on the thread. If you have a preference for car/wheel colour and racing number, please follow the instruction contained here.

    During the week we run a number of different events, we encourage all SNAILs to join as many as possible.
    Welcome to SNAIL :cheers:

    Just to clarify. Normally you'd be able to join for this Sunday, provided you completed all the necessary tasks. However, our Snail in charge of new driver placement is taking a much deserved vacation. Therefore, you'll be able to complete the tasks over the next week and begin racing on July 26th. In the meantime, feel free to continue to join SNAIL practice rooms.

    My dad needs a car. What are the best sites to use? This is the criteria I have:

    -Used cars only
    -Max $10,000 USD
    -Preferably under 100,000 miles
    -At most 10 years old

    He's a large man. 5'11", 300ish lbs, has mobility problems. Something with a lot of leg room and space to get in and out would be nice. That's all I can really think of for criteria. Any ideas for where to start

    I don't know a site to use but with the criteria you have stated I would start with a smallish SUV. It would have a lot of leg room.

    He can't get up to the seat. Needs to be a sedan or hatch of some kind.

    What kind of mobility problems? Most of the time people prefer something they don't have to get down too low in because it's difficult to get out of. Small SUVs are good for that because if someone can walk but has trouble getting up and down the seat is around the right height. I'd suggest looking at a Nissan Murano or Honda CR-V and if the seat is up too high then look at something like an Accord or an Altima.

    Right now he and I share a 2006 Nissan Sentra and he says it's perfect. It's also a matter of getting out too. Thanks for the info so far
