English is not an official language of the country. The only official language is Pandecian. However the vast majority of our citizens speak English as an unofficial language; and since the Education sector is heavily privatised, English is taught as part of the curriculum due to its usefulness.

If we have a soft approach to people coming across to EU countries then criminal people-smugglers will carry on taking them at ridiculous cost (funding crime) and in terrifyingly unsafe boats. By taking a seemingly harsher stance against immigration, the new Minister is actually saving lives from al...

Hang on - why would building a space port in the UK be a good idea? Unless I'm really missing something here, isn't it far better to launch closer to the equator? Pretty sure that there are some overseas territories far closer to the equator than the UK.... It's not a good idea, but probably a cons...

In your example Nazism isn't a protected characteristic. Jewishness is. Thus it wouldn't be two protected characteristics against each other, and the court wouldn't need to find a compromise. I suggest you read my post more carefully before jumping in with incorrect arguments. If that is the only p...

I think it's perfectly sound logic. You have to take the protection of one characteristic against another perfectly equally. You cannot protect sexual orientation more than religion. If you're going to have protected characteristics as part of your law then they MUST be equal. Thus in the case of tw...

I'm guessing that the real issue is "should there be protected characteristics for people". After all, if the case was that a man walked into a bakery and asked for a cake to be baked, but the baker refused to serve him "because he looked at me funny" then there'd be no discussio...

I own 6 of my own card.
There are only 11 cards in circulation, and a total of 15 cards ever found in the game(presumably 4 were junked).

Does this make my Uncommon card, actually super rare?

Yeah, I just had that happen to me, too.

I unlisted Perdition, and it disappeared completely, without me having junked it or sold it.
Same thing happened with Vasentius.

Both were when I unlisted them on my trades page. It didn't happen to the ones I unlisted on the card info page

Very cool.
Although I'm not sure how rare the 'legendary' Helaw really is. I think he has more copies of his legendary card in his own collection than I have of my uncommon one in existence in the game.

I have a theory that the drop rate of legendary, ultra-rare and rare cards is something fixed like x number per day, or so many per loot boxes opened. However I think that the commons and uncommons are dropped at a percentage of a active nations - however the number of regions active on NS isn't the...
