It's a relatively new issue as far as Easter Eggs are concerned. Basically, you have to remove all instances of the letter "e" from your custom fields in the settings.

Have no "e"s in any of your custom fields.

I wonder how it treats custom fields that aren't filled in. Are they interpreted as blank (and so have no "e"s), or are they interpreted as their default representations (in which case "Leader" and "a major religion" would be a problem).

Mercifully, I'm pretty sure your nation name is exempt, since you can't change it, but watch out if you're using the default capital city that's named after your nation...

It seems like a stretch that "a major religion" would cause a problem, but that's put enough doubt in my mind to test it.

Edit: There might be something to it, I noticed that when the field is blank, the default text says "Religion..."

Dear all,
What sort of crime rate would I be looking at for Easter egg issue 256 (issue that's rumoured you need to have a crime/youth rebelliousness problem)?
Right now my crime is around 3.0, which puts me in the top 54%.
Youth rebelliousness I'm top 3% so that's covered and I also have "galaxy" in my motto because that's supposed to help too but I still am not getting the issue.

Well, after months of waiting, I just received the issue. I don't know if it's because of the above but I'm inclined to believe it is.

Yup, it only took me a couple weeks with E's in my custom fields to get "Easter Egg: Just Say No to E". It's worth noting that I had accidentally left an "e" in my the demonym-adjective field, so perhaps that one's not included in the validity? Or maybe it only looks at custom fields referenced in the text of the Issue…? (Or maybe not, because that would just be the capital city.)

Only took me 3-4 days to get "What's your favorite color?". Gonna try for the E one now.
