I would be a capricious dictator, changing the anthem at a whim. I would expect my bevy of composers to be prepared, at any time, with a menu of new anthems to choose from.

(Also, how amused am I by some of the Russian answers to this? Dire Straits, really?)

Edit: Just remembered I used to play NationStates. I had a country. We had a flag, even! But I think the interwebs ate it. Alas for the great state of Zenduckia.

yeah capricious..

capricious but not a dictator..national anthem has to have meaning not just for yourself but for your country and people..this one thing that needs to be chosen carefully for it represents the whole of you and your people which can not be changed at your whim (as you say) but a lasting music that will be played over and over..and wouldn't it be nice to have something really uplifting instead of depressing?

Who said anything about depressing? As a dictator, I'm poised to demand cheery anthems.

I expect my people would be quite accepting of my whims re: national anthem. I'm planning on a 4-day workweek and free healthcare. Plus everyone gets free vegan eclairs on my birthday, which is of course a national holiday; people who have to work that day may have another day of their choosing off, but will have to settle for vegan longjohns (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_John_%28doughnut%29)

(also, as dictator of this blog, I will totally delete comments to edit them. oops)

Just as well, really. You might as well have your own country while lj's handing them out. ;)
