They are easter eggs that are added to your pool after you reach a population. Since they are added to the pool, you can get them twice.

No, you can get them twice. Ask a mod, they'll tell you. I keep getting Harry Potter Censorship Row although I chose an option.

That's an incomplete list though. I encountered the ones mentioned above in issues, and had to give them macro names myself.

Mind you, I could always have made a mistake. The entire list is user-made and thus non-official anyway.


@@NAMEINITIALS@@ would, if a nation name is "Kalasparata" simply return "K". See the issues list how it is used:
... the @@NAMEINITIALS@@SOC (the @@NAME@@ Society of Compromisers).
The @@NAMEINITIALS@@NHS (@@NAME@@ National Health Service) is ...
So, in the example mentioned the abbreviations would end up as "KSOC" and "KNHS".

@@RANDOMNAME_REVERSED@@ takes a regular @@RANDOMNAME@@ and reverses the words letter by letter. Note capitalization stays at the left of the word. This is used in easter egg issue #80 to create an alien name. Thing is, since I do not have that issue handy on a nation, I cannot verify now whether it's a hardcoded name or a macro. I decided to add it in the list as a macro, just to be on the safe side.

Let me know how I can link to something in the middle of a forum post...

Since they're in numerical order, scrolling down shouldn't be a problem, IMHO.

Bluntly quoting my own post :p

Update: New Spartzerina posted a method to have links within posts. See: viewtopic.php?p=3208343#p3208343

Now that I know how to link to items within a post (since my question was never answered I figured it wasn't possible at all), I've updated all posts in the spoiler list so that the initial table consists of links to the text of each issue further down.

I don't know the results to ones statistics, and this thread isn't the place for ANY discussion.

Suggestion: start a new thread.

Random. I believe that only the first one is set (voluntary voting, compulsory voting, no voting). And something about new nations only being able to get the first 30 issues but someone is going to have to correct me on that one.

My question: The easter eggs - are they normal issues like any other, except that they're really dumb and quite hilarious? :P Do they not add to your statistics, or are they not represented on your country's history, or something?

First, they're unusual in that they're very difficult to get. The game keeps track of how many of them you've encountered and will list this on your nation's page together with the effect of the issue. And, each of them can only be received once.

That's right, it's the case for the first month or so... although even then the selection's random, so you might get some of them more than once each during that period and others not at all...

The Issue
During the middle of the night, someone has mysteriously put a lever in the middle of the city park. On it, it says, "Pull the Lever, And See The World End."

The Debate
1. "I've always wanted to see the apocalypse." says an elderly man on a park bench. "All that fire and brimstone. To see God's wrath. Something I can tell my grandchildren about later on. I say we should."

2. "Not on your life!" says his wife sitting next to him. "If you pull that lever, we'll have no grandchildren, no life, only heaven and hell. Don't you dare pull that lever."

3. "Now, don't think of it as a do/don't option," says a hot dog vendor. "What if we give tours so that people can see the lever? Not to touch it of course, but to see that humanity can be ruined by such a contraption. We can make a profit."

What exactly are the outcomes of these three options?
