I notice that International rocketry only seem to cover countries like
Canada and other European countries and Austrilia which is all Western
origin. I wonder if any non western countries (like Taiwan, Middle East,
China, Pakistan, India or something like that) ever carry model Rockets
or if it's even Legal. How about HPR? I'd live in one of those countries
but I hate to be deprived of Rocketry living there. Saudi Arabia is full
of Desert lands which is a Great place to fly HPR because there's no
tree to eat your rockets.

The problem with all of the countries you mentioned is that their
governments are repressive and not at all inclined toward human rights.
Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are just two examples. Lots of sand in SA but no
freedom. Pakistan has an unofficial war on Americans living in Pakistan.
Geez, get caught with anything that could remotely be classified as a
missile and they'd trip all over themselves to make an example out of you.

If sand and miles of undisturbed territory is what you want, them move to
Nevada. Not only would you have all the space needed, but you'd have the
protection of the Constitution and the security provided by over 200 years
of democratic rule.

PS   Those other places...great places to visit but notice, Americans never
flee the US to live there but thousands of them come from there to here.

I've heard that China has a viable model rocket hobby.  It makes
sense:  they invented gun powder, they are a huge producer of
fireworks (a bottle rocket motor is very similar to an Estes motor),
and they have a strong commercial space industry.  Those Chinese
rocket scientists had to start somewhere.

oh and by the way I have a friend from Pakistan who says they have model
Rockets, but they're very expensive. Another friend from Saudi Arabia
said that they have model rockets too. I dont think Saudi Arabia have
any problem with peace that I have heard of. The reason they dont have
as much rights as America is because they believed if you give people
too much right then people will start commiting crimes (the best example
being America.... crimes committed in one day in US is hardly committed
in Saudi Arabia in 10 years) Also they implement the Islamic law which
we shouldn't critizise, because that is against the Declaration of
Independence and the Consititution which allows everyone to have freedom
of speech/belief. I think now people would work towards letting these
Arab countries have more rights and stuff. In Nevada it's too much crime
and alot of lands are owned by developers (which prevents you from
rocketting there) if you are in Las Vegas...

the only think I hate about Navada is the dry condition and the crime!!!
NV is the only state that legalizes *** but most cities that
legalizes *** have high crimes. the nice things about Saudi Arabia
is you dont have to worry about things being stolen and stuff. In Navada
someone probably steal your rockets
