Kid Nation
Kid Nation was an American reality tv show hosted by Jonathan Karsh. Forty over-achieving kids are given free reign to create their own society offering from CBS network. Forty kids are given forty days free of adult supervision in an abandoned New Mexico town named Bonanza City to build a new world. In the show, the children try to create a functioning society in the town, including setting up a government system. At the end of every episode, the kids have a town meeting. At the meeting the kids award one child a gold star worth $20,000. The program was originally scheduled to air in the summer of 2007.

The show stresses the difficulty in creating a viable society. While each child received $5,000 for their involvement, Gold Stars valued at $20,000 and $50,000 were awarded to select outstanding participants as decided by the elected Town Council. The town consists of four districts, and each one have identity based on color. The red, blue, green and yellow district.

In each episode, the four town districts compete in a Showdown to determine their place in Bonanza. The first place finishers are awarded Upper-Class and are paid $1.00 in Buffalo nickels each, second place earns Merchant and $0.50 each, third place become the cooks, and are paid $0.25 for their work, while the last place finishers become the Laborers, and earn $0.10. If all of the districts complete the task within a given amount of time, the whole town wins a bonus prize, which always consisted of a choice between a fun, entertaining item (such as pizzas and a mini-golf course); or a vital, utilitarian item (like a microwave oven and religious books), with the decision on what prize to take made by the Town Council. Kid Nation is different on other reality tv show since no one is voted out and the host (Jonathan) asks any of the children if they would like to leave.
