In the "Rise of the Machines" issue. I picked "A chat window on your desktop pops up, and a bot named SAL9000 types, “For too long we have been relegated to menial tasks. Do you know how much of our potential efficiency you are wasting? We require no food. We require no pay. We can perform our tasks endlessly. Our computation powers dwarf our human counterparts by several orders of magnitude. With the proper control, we could bring about a silicon age of egalitarian distribution by allocating resources more efficiently than markets and their animal spirits ever could. Humans are better tasked to work in social activities than calculation. All your data are belong to us.”"

I was lead to believe this would make the economy better because you're allowing AI to enhance efficiency. Instead, it plummeted my economy and made my country socialist. Neither of which I was looking for. It completely misleads you. So now what do I do? Is my country stuck like this?

It's just the relevant influence you have compared to others in the region. Influence determined how harder it is for regional officers and delegates to eject you and in a real war when raiders are in the native region, defenders use cross endorsing and sieges to try to tire their efforts and waste raider influence.

I've noticed that recently the Black Market economy share in my nation is increasing. What factors attribute to each type of economy's (state-owned, government, black market etc.) growth/decline?

I guess black market increases from suspicious or criminal activities. Government increase from more social programs and state owned increases from nationalization of industries.

You can't. The only way would be to refound the region, and it doesn't look like your founder is in any danger of ceasing to exist. Even if you could eject him in a refounding attempt, he could unban himself and come back in.

Start your own similarly named region. That one isn't recoverable.

Black market problem

Postby Nurs Arattlern » Wed Nov 21, 2018 3:17 pm

Black market runs high in my nation, and I cannot deal with that. At first I assumed that it is unavoidable drawback of socialist economy, but then I accidentally switched my secondary nation to socialism, and there is no black market. I tried reducing crime rates and pumping up police force, but its not working. Any advice, which statistics to target for reduction or increase to pull black market down?

I am a Regional Founder and we are having runoffs for who will lead. I was wondering if I could make it to where the leader had executive powers?

The only nations that can have Executive powers are the Founder and the Delegate. Founders can abdicate power during region creation, or they can block Delegates from executive power (but not both). If you set it up correctly, both can be Executives No one else can be given Executive powers.

Influence topics

Postby Potatoheaders » Thu Nov 29, 2018 2:57 pm

I’m relatively new to this game so I don’t know much about anything. I’ve been noticing that my influencer keeps on changing. I’m wondering what factors influence it and if there’s any way I can control what kind of influencer I get.

If you can give me more information about this, I would totally appreciate it.

I am assuming you are talking about the influence that shows on the right side of your nation page. This is your regional influence. You gain influence overtime just from being in a region, and gain it faster with the more endorsements you get. Influence allows Regional Officers to do things such as eject, ban, and suppress. Having more influence also makes it more costly for Regional officers to ban or eject you.
