In addition to what Dexterra said in the preceding post _
Nothing that you do, not even choosing Issue options that look as though they should affect this, changes the rate or causes a reduction.
There's a "Zombie Plague" mini-game that usually runs for a couple of days around Halloween, during which your population appears to get reduced, but it's re-set back to the "proper" level when that ends.

And also, how do I leave a region?


You leave a region by moving to a new one. Your nation is always in one and only one region, it's part of the game structure.

I have a question:
Is there a way to see how long a nation has been inactive? I've been trying to track a certain nation, but the in-depth log of gov't activity doesn't load.

Nations stop gaining influence after seven days of inactivity. If said nation is in a UCR (influence is more complicated in feeders and sinkers) then the day their influence graph plateaued was 7 days after they last logged in.

There should also be a message on their nation page like this...
National Happenings

Most Recent Government Activity: 3 hours ago


I'm not sure if it gets updated if they log in and do nothing, though.

I have found that to be generally unreliable, so I think that's the case.

There is a LASTLOGIN shard in the Nation API that will return a Unix timestamp for the last login time of that nation.

I know this will probably be a stupid question; But, I've constantly lowered my economy over and over, to the point where my economy is now struggling.

Is it possible to raise my economy back up? Or will issue rng not really allow me to raise it? (ie not getting the right issue to obtain meaningful change/issue only marginally raises econ/issue lowers econ even futher)

It's always possible to significantly improve your stats over time. The economy is a special example. PS2 has a good dispatch:

Thanks for your reply! I should've figured this myself, but I felt a little dejected after having my economy fall over and over and over, although I kept making choices that I feel would be *right* for my nation based on rp things, I think it's time I just use that guide and start raising economy to simply raise it.
