This is a setting that changes what is currently shown on the home page. If showing a smaller population ‘clutters’ up the home page, so does showing the regular population. Can we please read (carefully), think, and then post? Just as an aside, being snippy with the mods isn't a good way of bringi...

The population idea that you suggest is already redundant, as many players already RP a completely different population number anyway, using Factbooks and the like to show what they perceive their population to be. For RP purposes, most players take the indicated population on the nation page with ...

The Tradition is that we call it Population and don't screw around with it. It's been the one constant from the beginning, that's why people don't like to see it change. The older players take pride in their populations, the nation creation date in RL terms is just a cold OOC date. The population i...

Recreational Drug Use Index Change - Pollution Index?

Curious if we could get a new Pollution index since pollution is now no longer counted in Recreational Drug Use. This should be a separate index from Environmental Beauty, since that index seems to be measuring amount of undeveloped/"green" spaces, not actual pollution. (I'd like to think/...

I don't much like the idea of the exchange rate being something you can just set. Real nations have to earn their exchange rates and we should as well. Actually "currency manipulation" is a very common real-world action that countries undertake. China is notorious for it. They set the off...

Another (Yet Hopefully Simple) Exchange Rate Idea

It’s always bothered me that we can name/set a currency and many of our stats are quoted in that currency, but in reality are all scaled in Standard Monetary Units (SMU), thus resulting in a defacto 1-to-1 exchange rate between all our currencies. I propose including an Exchange Rate field in user s...

This is a grand idea, especially if its only an option/setting. As the OP pointed out, it’s perfect for a government to proactively attempt some little “corrections” to the stats we receive from otherwise random issues. (I personally would love a week or a few days of some environmental issues, not ...

A good way to look at it (especially since your economy is made up of government and state-owned industry) is to consider what NS calls “Effective Tax Rate” as the sum of all taxes and fees your people pay for goods and services from BOTH government and state-owned industries. Example, a road toll i...

A successful micronation will understand the extent of its sovereignty and respect its host (macro)nation. A smart “micronationalist” should probably just run their micronation as a legitimate business in whatever macro-jurisdiction they are hosted by. Respect to host macronation involves respecting...

The key to understanding Russia is this: they have no "soft power". Because of this, they're forced to rely on "hard power", which further erodes their soft power. Messing with the Ukraine when that nation threatened to join NATO/the EU makes sense in light of Russia wanting to ...

Russia refused to embrace that path for the same reason the US has continued to over-support its European allies. Russia is still led by Cold Warriors.

The logic of Russia’s foreign policy since the end of Communism and the collapse of the Soviet Union has baffled me for a while.
