The Carbon Output Index, formed in 2007 by the Syleruian Ministry of the Environment, has been used only for Syleru for the past five years in order to grade it's carbon outputs to see if the nation was declining and improving in it's past pollution problems. Now, a much simpler version is available for government applications so our humble nation can grade your nation on it's approximate output of carbon. We made this publicly available so government's can learn about their environmental path and perhaps seek more ecologically superior alternatives in case of a high carbon output or to keep progressing toward complete environmental sanctity in case of a low, neutral or negative carbon output. We will also offer our professional government opinion on how your nation would benefit from environmental sanctity and ways to improve your score if it is poor. Thank you for taking the time and filling out the application, and as we always say in our humble nation, "Namaste!"

Image

The application is available below, but be cautioned, applications must be of utmost accuracy to ensure the best estimates from our professionals down at the grading centres, and advise you double and triple check your values and refine your applications before you submit it to our nation to be graded. Please take your time, and if you have any comments, suggestions or questions, please do so in a formal manner alongside your application. If you have questions concerning your application, please submit it to our offices along with big bold text so we don't miss it, we receive a lot of information and we might easily skip over something that could assist us in improving our application.

Here is where you can review your grade, what it means and how well you did against other nations. If you unsatisfied with your grade or have questions, be free to ask us to elaborate and answer them!

Negative Net Carbon Emissions (-1 000 000 to -1 thousands of metric tons of carbon annually)

Nations who have received this grade by the SCOI graders here in Syrania, the capital of Syleru, you are an environmental milestone. Your extreme devotion to the environment, and your efforts in capturing and storing carbon away from the atmosphere is offsetting the outputs of much dirtier nations abroad. Ecologically-friendly power sources are found in a plethora of locations, forests are preserved and planted in areas never previously forested and smog has never occurred in your nation for ages. Your people breathe clean air and tourists from all around gawk at a spectacle of species that live in cohesion with your environmental sanctity. Your water is filled with fish, aquatic plants and a variety of new species reintegrated into your nation's water due to it's pristine quality. You mine sustainably and will be one of the last, truly stable and prosperous nations on Earth, extending far after polluted empires have come and gone. Everything is recycled and made with exceptional quality and landfills are nearly empty, perhaps other nations will regard yours as a mentor to prevent humanity from collapsing upon itself. Overall, stupendous work.

Carbon Neutrality (0 thousands of metric tons of carbon annually)

Nations who have received this grade, although you don't technically help the world rid itself of carbon dioxide, you aren't polluting either, and in a post-industrial world, that is quite amazing by itself. Either through offsets or not polluting at all, your nation is almost as clean and pristine as one that produces negative net emissions. Forests are sustainably logged and reforested as much as possible and the only carbon that lingers in the air is balanced by techniques like direct air capture. Ecologically-friendly power sources outnumber gas and oil ones almost 100 to 1, and even then they are managed properly and are always sustainable. Virtually every object is recycled or reused and garbage in landfills are disposed of cleanly and efficiently. In the water and in the air, pollution is scarce and life is everywhere. Inside households they are the epitome of efficiency, heated by burned waste, powered by solar panels and insulated thoroughly. Amazing work, [nation name here], you should be proud.

Low Carbon Economy (About 1 to 20 000 thousands of metric tons of carbon annually)

Nations who have received this grade, pollution in your nation is very low, and contributes to less than 0.1% of the world's annual emissions, despite the fact that your nation still pollutes a low amount, it can be turned into a neutral or negative output with minimal effort on your part. Preserved forests are common and logging seldom occurs and is sustainably managed, green technologies prevent biomass, coal or oil pollution from emitting too much carbon. The average vehicle uses an alternative form of energy and your nation's waters and forested areas are still heavily populated with a variety of lifeforms. Recycling is heavily encouraged and very frequent in your nation, and absurd topics like capitalism and consumerism aren't heavily endorsed. Renewable energy still outnumbers non renewable energy by at least a factor of ten and all developments are cautious about environmental damages that could occur in the process. Households are efficient and employ little tricks to reduce pollution like solar panels on the roof or filtering light in instead of using less efficient lights. Great job, keep making attempts at reducing your pollution.

Post-Industrial Nation (About 20 000 to 200 000 thousands of metric tons of carbon annually)

Nations who receive this grade are about in the middle of an environmental utopia and a cataclysmic wasteland. They pollute between less than 0.1% to nearly 1% of the world's annual pollution. Nations in this category generally have pockets of preserved forests here and there, and logging is still managed fairly sustainably, nations of this category generally clear-cut. Smog, if present, is only above the largest industrial cities in the nation, and waters are polluted to a fair extent, and it shows with the lesser amounts of fish and aquatic plant-life living in the depths. Vehicles are generally hybrids of gasoline and electricity, with some investments in renewable energy sources being put into place. Power is still mainly generated from renewable sources, although in older cities you can still see plumes of burned gas in the air from power plants. Recycling is endorsed but isn't required in all products, but citizens are still wary about it and the rest of the environment and still are fairly conservative about it. Corporations generally enjoy fair amounts of attention and are still fairly large in your nation, but it will never rise to a point of a consumerist nation. Households are usually not dirty or clean, using natural gas to heat and fluorescent or halogen lighting. Your nation is satisfactory, try developing efficient ecologically friendly technologies wherever you can.

Environmentally Apathetic Nation (About 200 000 to 8 000 000 thousands of metric tons of carbon annually)

Nations who receive this rank generally don't care much about the environment, and they generally don't care because they don't want to lose profit, or happiness from their consumerist lifestyle. They generally pollute somewhere from 1% to 30% of the world's annual emissions. Trees are generally unseen in all but the most enduring and largest forests, or lands not yet settled much, and only minuscule amounts of uncut land is preserved as a national park or regional park. Your waters are filled with the by products of all the waste your nation produces, and aquatic life is dying out because of it. Smog is common over large cities, and only towns and smaller settlements are free from the most of it. Vehicles are generally gasoline and enjoy the luxuries of low gas prices, hybrids are heard of but are uncommon as they're expensive and don't satisfy the 'wants' of the people. Power mainly consists of hydroelectric and fossil fuel power sources, with limited solar and wind grids wherever gas and oil ones can't be placed. Recycling only occurs in the most obvious and needed things, like plastic or metal cans, and the government doesn't really endorse it all that much. Greedy corporations are highly common in your capitalist nation and are placed in many areas around your country, and receive a lot of money and attention from your people. Households are cheap and efficiency is dubious at best, mostly heated by natural gas and filled with power-sucking appliances not really needed. Unless you want to face environmental consequences in the near future, we'd recommend at least TRYING to care for the environment.

Polluted Wasteland (About 8 000 000 to 30 000 000+ thousands of metric tons of carbon annually)

It is already too late for nations who have received this grade, your environment is wrecked beyond repair and unless extreme attempts are made, your nation will soon be inhospitable. You pollute around 5% to over 100% of all the other countries combined in this world's annual emissions. Trees still alive in your nation are on their last limb, and forested areas are extremely rare if still found. National parks are non-existent, excluding artificial ones. Your nation's waters are choked by waste and sewage and life in the depths below is almost infeasible. Smog and air pollution are everywhere, and toxic gas masks must be distributed if citizens wish to spend the day outside. Vehicles are large, powered by diesel or otherwise and focus on aesthetics over efficiency. Power is virtually all fossil fuel, with some lifeless hydroelectric dams here and there, operating inefficiently with all the sewage clogging them up. Recycling is basically non-existent, and landfills tower tall over some hi-rises in your nation, drawing flocks of still surviving pigeons and seagulls. Corporations essentially rule your neo-capitalist nation, and your 'government' is somehow clinging through all of it to still hold on to power. Households are build en masse, cheap and getting the job done with the most inefficient and dirty of technologies. Your nation's state is terrible, we here in Syleru pray that somehow a miracle may occur to save your sorry asses.

98. Carpathia and Moldova 211 000 000tmt (FT)


Undefined (Exceeding amounts of carbon ranging from quintillion to above octillion tons of carbon annually.)

The only definition we at SCOI can give this is pure fear. Anyone in this category could strip Earth of it's resources in days and render it inhospitable. Be thankful none of these exist near or far from Earth, all nations or empires in this category must be at least a Type 2 civilization on the Kardashev scale. If you receive this, please have mercy on us on Earth.

Once again, thank you for filling it out. Remember, all questions will be answered to the extent of our ability, and we hope that your nation is clean and non-polluting as ours. Goodbye. Also, as a recently added disclaimer, these ratings are most accurate for civilizations in the PMT, MT or PT timeframe. Nations that have achieved FT and/or FanT tech are more likely to receive an inaccurate grading.

In short, my nation is a highly policed strict, seemingly utopian autocracy with an almost religious environmental fetish.

The Greater Island Kingdom, depending on a pristine environment to live, work and relax inn, takes many steps to ensuring low carbon output. These measures are necessary to protect tourism, agriculture, and health of both people and environment.

Residential Output

This is the output of the residents within your nation, and covers topics like individual recycling, how efficient are they with lighting and do they buy disposable or reusable products in stores.

Where do most people live in your nation? (Skyscrapers, hi-rises and etc) Roughly half live in apartment-style complexes which are mdoern and comfortable- a majority of the buildings in New Hayesalia were only completed less than ten years ago.
Where do most people put their trash? (Compost, recycling, garbage bags and etc) Recycling is heavily encouraged, and a record 91% of all recyclable materials are reused. This is thanks to the wide-scale use of small and convinient bins for general rubbish and recyclable material around sprawling, pedestrian-based urban centres. Compost collection companies offer payment for bags of compost, which are picked up and resold at low price to agriculture workers. Material unfit for recycling is held in some landfills, but for a nation with 7 billion people the size of these landfills is minimal.
Do most people use disposable or long-lasting products? It depends on the product. Typically, most packaging and non-consumable goods are packaged in recyclable material.
How many cars per person; what is the most common fuel source for a car? Due to car bans in major urban areas due to excessive traffic issues; there is one car for every 1992 people. These cars typically run on diesel or hybrid power (hybrid engines are taxed less on import into New Hayesalia)
What type of lighting does an average person use; and how long a day do they use it for? By law, only energy-efficient fluorescent lighting may be used; typically an office worker will be under fluorescent lighting for around 12 hours (home and work)
What is most commonly used to heat a home? Due to the all-around high temperatures in most parts of New Hayesalia, most houses are not heated. However, heating is typically provided by energy efficient means. Cooling a home is far more important, and air conditioning use counts for a major part of New Hayesalian power usage- although an estimated 90% of air conditionings in home environments are powered by solar.
How efficient are your people with everyday tasks; what are some things your people do that is efficient? Power usage per person differs depending on the person, however most New Hayesalians maintain basic habits like switching off lights, air conditioners and electronic devices.
Do your people emphasize needs or wants more? New Hayesalians will draw of power as needed, whether for needs or wants.
How much water do your people use on an average day? Getting enough water for large New Hayesalian cities is a challenge, meaning that water rates are fairly high. This encourages water efficiency and efficient products.
Do your people actively help environmental causes like planting forests? The Tree-Year-Person program is a government initiative. Every New Hayesalian citizen is sent an assortment of seeds of local plants which they are asked to spend a while plantin gin their backyard or another place like a park. This program has planted nearly 5 billion trees alone, and other government initiatives are continuing.

Government/Corporate Output

This is the output directly or indirectly caused by the government and corporations. It covers direct carbon topics like power, carbon offsets, banning diesel vehicles and indirect ones like fuel taxes, carbon credits and making corporations liable for their outputs economically.

Largest producer of energy? (Solar, Coal and etc) Solar plants and panels produce a considerable portion of energy, and combined clean energy systems contribute 89% of power requirements and usually at a grassroots level. The remaining 11% is produced by nuclear power plants which are located inland and away from major cities to reassure critics of safety. Nuclear waste is exported to other nations for storage.
Does your nation utilize carbon capture and storing or direct air capture? Sequestration is not a main priority of the NH Government, but some companies are experimenting with the process.
Does your government encourage carpooling, bicycling or public transit? Public transport such as monorials, trams and subways, which largely runs on hydrogen fuel cells, is heavily subsidised by provincial governments. New Hayesalia's famous 'ring cities'are designed for the pedestrian and are connected by subway. Bicycles and other similar transport methods are extremely popular.
How strictly does your government regulate industrial pollution/waste? Waste of a toxic or hazardous nature is heavily regulated. Other types of wastes are typically dealt with in the same manner as homes.
How does your government dispose of it's waste/garbage? In the same way as other companies.
Does your government preserve forests; If so, what percent? Logging is restricted in New Hayesalia and an estimated 75% of the countries forests are protected.
How frequently is air travel used; what fuel do most of your planes use? Air travel is a major form of transportation between cities, as New Hayesalia is a large and decentralised country; jet fuel is used mostly, however the Boeing 787 is becoming a popular choice for New Hayesalian airlines on medium-range routes.
Does your government utilize carbon credits; do they apply to corporations? No.
Does your nation use ocean fertilization, bio-charcoal or enhanced weathering to mitigate carbon? Not as a government priority, but private companies are experimenting.
Internationally, how active is your nation in environmental talks? Very, with a focus on reducing nuclear pollution.
Has your government made reforestation or afforestation attempts? New Hayesalia has not been threatened with major deforestation, as the country mostly comprises of open, lush grasslands with considerably sized pockets of forests. Historically, the Hayesalian Union was very protective of the environment.
How safely is hazardous material disposed of? Sfety requirements are stringent and exceed all WA requirements.
On a scale of 1-10, how polluted are your nation's water supplies? With one being the lowest, 1-2 depending on location.
Have any fuel taxes or similar laws been enacted; if so, state all of them. Leaded petrol is an illegal fuel.
How much mining is done by your nation? Very little, as New Hayesalia is not particularly rich in resources.
How strictly does your government regulate corporate pollution/waste? Considerably so.
How much land is devoted to commercial use (%); how much land is devoted to urban/residential use (%); how much for industrial use(%)? Exact amounts are unknown. The total amount of land in use for all three is less than 50%

How frequently is air travel used; what fuel do most of your planes use? It is the primary transport method, hydrogen fueled fusion.
Does your government utilize carbon credits; do they apply to corporations? no, we have set emissions quotas that can not be traded.
Does your nation use ocean fertilization, bio-charcoal or enhanced weathering to mitigate carbon? occasionally when we are terraforming.
Internationally, how active is your nation in environmental talks? We are isolationist.
Has your government made reforestation or afforestation attempts? We completely rebuilt the ecosystem of our home world after a nuclear war. We would not say we have done a perfect job, but it is livable now and a reasonable facsimile of the original , work on this project and research into it is still in progress. Some species such as our native dogs and horses are lost to us forever (the only samples of their DNA got destroyed in the last stages of the war) but we have introduced analogue creatures into their roles to balance out the system.
How safely is hazardous material disposed of? usually it is dropped into a star where it can not cause any harm.
On a scale of 1-10, how polluted are your nation's water supplies? 1.5, some pollution in areas heavily irradiated by the war.
Have any fuel taxes or similar laws been enacted; if so, state all of them. Petroleum falls under the luxury tax since the only vehicles that use it are antique collectables.
How much mining is done by your nation? Massive amounts. usually dead worlds and asteroid belts are used as mining colonies since there is no environment there to destroy.
How strictly does your government regulate corporate pollution/waste? Strictly, heavy fines for pollution.
How much land is devoted to commercial use (%); how much land is devoted to urban/residential use (%); how much for industrial use(%)? Urbanization average: 5% per planet, residential 3%, commercial 1% Industrial 2%. Farming 10% of rural land. (this may vary considerably since some planets are unsuitable for farming and their food production must come from factories or imports)

The sorting of compostables and recyclables is usually handled by the household bots or janitorial bots and the garbage collection service uses bots to further sort the waste and reprocesses it into raw materials that are sent to factories to be reused.

Novus Niciae has received the Environmentally Apathetic Nation grade and pollutes around 5 640 000 thousands of metric tons of carbon annually. We must remind you that since your nation is FT, this may be inaccurate or may not exactly suit your nation properly. We must assert that this system is for nations of PMT and MT in origin.

Regarding Radiatia's question on efficiency, we define efficiency as "something that completes a given task with the lowest mass, energy used and the least waste produced.

How efficient (energy-conserving) are your people with everyday tasks; what are some things your people do that is efficient? Being inefficient at work will make you earn much less at best and get you fired and shipped off to debt work camps at worst, so the majority of population tries to be efficient. In the 'green' sense of conserving energy, though, we are the opposite of efficient.
Do your people emphasize needs or wants more? Consumerism ho! Wants.
How much water do your people use on an average day? They shower at least two times and use another 2-3 gallons for other things a day.
Do your people actively help environmental causes like planting forests? Lol no.

Government/Corporate Output

This is the output directly or indirectly caused by the government and corporations. It covers direct carbon topics like power, carbon offsets, banning diesel vehicles and indirect ones like fuel taxes, carbon credits and making corporations liable for their outputs economically.

Largest producer of energy? (Solar, Coal and etc) Nuclear

Have any fuel taxes or similar laws been enacted; if so, state all of them. Lol no.
How much mining is done by your nation? All discovered natural resources are promptly strip-mined. That is to say, a lot.
How strictly does your government regulate corporate pollution/waste? It doesn't.
How much land is devoted to commercial use (%); how much land is devoted to urban/residential use (%); how much for industrial use(%)? Virtually 100% (the nation is a corporatocracy, the ruling corporation owns everything and does the best to exploit absolutely everything it can for profit), 45% and 35% respectively.

Actually, we pollute less than Radiatia?! That will not fly with us. The Corporate government is considering new mass factory-building and strip-mining projects to outperform the Radiatian Federation in such an important indicator of industrial power and national well-being.

Tyresia, the main reason Radiatia is more polluting (to our disgust) is because of their grossly inflated population and their strict anti-environmental policies. Why you would WANT to be more polluted than them baffles us at SCOI.

How much water do your people use on an average day? About 200 liters per person
Do your people actively help environmental causes like planting forests? For the most part.

Government/Corporate Output

This is the output directly or indirectly caused by the government and corporations. It covers direct carbon topics like power, carbon offsets, banning diesel vehicles and indirect ones like fuel taxes, carbon credits and making corporations liable for their outputs economically.

Does your nation utilize carbon capture and storing or direct air capture? Yes
Does your government encourage carpooling, bicycling or public transit? Yes
How strictly does your government regulate industrial pollution/waste? Very. In response, almost all of Poldania's industrial sector has moved to Raidatia.

How much mining is done by your nation? Actually a lot, only safety and waste disposal are regulated by the government when it comes to mining. It's not a major portion of the economy though.
How strictly does your government regulate corporate pollution/waste? To the point of chasing heavy industry out of Poldania.

Residential Output

This is the output of the residents within your nation, and covers topics like individual recycling, how efficient are they with lighting and do they buy disposable or reusable products in stores.

What is the population of your nation? 145,000,000
Where do most people live in your nation? (Skyscrapers, hi-rises and etc) 1 story houses sprawling outwards in traditional villages.
Where do most people put their trash? (Compost, recycling, garbage bags and etc) Recycling or Reusing. Mostly the latter.
Do most people use disposable or long-lasting products? Long-Lasting. Not only is it against our Sol-Luna philosophy to be wasteful, our general idea is that the longer it lasts, the more money you have to buy other things instead of constantly replacing one thing.
How many cars per person; what is the most common fuel source for a car? About 1 car for every two people. The most common source of fuel is steam. However, water(hydrogen) cars are a new invention and cars running on Heaven's Energy (enchanted whale oil) is getting very popular.
What type of lighting does an average person use; and how long a day do they use it for? We use candles/lanterns and mirrors to artificially brighten the light. Most people use it for 6-7 hours a day.
What is most commonly used to heat a home? Wood and Insulation. We heat up the floor using rudimentary convection techniques and burn the wood to heat up the floor. It works incredibly well and converts far more of that heat into warming up the house. Apartment hi-rises use a similar thing except there's a massive central boiler that does this.
How efficient (energy-conserving) are your people with everyday tasks; what are some things your people do that is efficient? Very efficient. Although Ulvena is economically wealthy, economic crisis is still remembered by parents and grandparents, who constantly conserve their whale oil and their candle wax for the next day or for night when they need it.
Do your people emphasize needs or wants more? Needs. While Ulvenans want things, they always put needs above wants.
How much water do your people use on an average day? Enough to drink, cook, and use the bathroom (toilet, shower/bath).
Do your people actively help environmental causes like planting forests? Absolutely. April is the month of environmental awareness sponsored by the State and companies alike. People go out and plant trees in designated areas, try to clean up public spaces like beaches, and companies are given incentive 2x as much to use Steam Filters to filter out the CO2 coming from the factories or use cleaner energy sources like Heaven's Energy or water mills. Normally, there are environmental groups that protect wildlife preserves and plant forests where need be. Usually directed by the government or a science organization.

Government/Corporate Output

This is the output directly or indirectly caused by the government and corporations. It covers direct carbon topics like power, carbon offsets, banning diesel vehicles and indirect ones like fuel taxes, carbon credits and making corporations liable for their outputs economically.

Largest producer of energy? (Solar, Coal and etc) Heaven's Energy. Produces nearly 40% of our energy. A close second is Nuclear Fusion, producer of 32% of our energy.
Does your nation utilize carbon capture and storing or direct air capture? Carbon capture and storing.
Does your government encourage carpooling, bicycling or public transit? All three. Buses and Airships are incredibly popular for commuters as to avoid all of the carpooling cars and bicycles are very popular for suburban and urban grade school and college students. We barely have to encourage it. Only fund it properly.
How strictly does your government regulate industrial pollution/waste? Very strict. If pollution begins to harm the citizens via air or water, the perpetrator is investigated and if found guilty, he's physically beat with clubs and sent to jail.
How does your government dispose of it's waste/garbage? Recycle or compost. Metals are recyclable and given that we don't use plastic for anything other than research, nearly everything is recyclable.
Does your government preserve forests; If so, what percent? 45% of our natural forests are protected, especially in the mountains.
How frequently is air travel used; what fuel do most of your planes use? A LOT. Planes for national travel? Please. We use Airships powered by charcoal and hot air.
Does your government utilize carbon credits; do they apply to corporations? Somewhat. It's not a credit system, it's a mandate enforced by the government differing from company to company.
Does your nation use ocean fertilization, bio-charcoal or enhanced weathering to mitigate carbon? Bio-Charcoal, yes. We simply do not have the technological capabilities to do the other two in large scales.
Internationally, how active is your nation in environmental talks? We try our best given our focus on the economy.
Has your government made reforestation or afforestation attempts? Yes. We have reforested much of far Western Ulvena during the reign of the 4th Emperor, which was on the brink of becoming a wasteland.
How safely is hazardous material disposed of? Hazardous materials are carefully packed in containers and either refined to use again if possible but in most cases, it goes underground in a special research site for military purposes.
On a scale of 1-10 (1 is least polluted, 10 is toxic,) how polluted are your nation's water supplies? 2
Have any fuel taxes or similar laws been enacted; if so, state all of them. Fuel must remain within the $1 range. Exact numbers based on coal and charcoal prices. Fuel must also be clean enough to filter at least 50% of the carbon dioxide from cars and Airships via the Steam Filter.
How much mining is done by your nation? A lot in Northern Ulvena, in the mountains.
How strictly does your government regulate corporate pollution/waste? Extremely strictly. Death penalty for environmental disasters caused by any organization that could have been prevented.
How much land is devoted to commercial use (%); how much land is devoted to urban/residential use (%); how much for industrial use(%)? About 20% is industrial. 40% is urban/residential and agriculture is included in that as we are a mix of super-industrial and agrarian. The rest is either forests, mountains, preserves, or natural tourist attractions.

Aazeronia has received the Negative Carbon Emissions grade, polluting -1400 thousands of metric tons of carbon annually.

Poldania has received the Post-Industrial Nation grade, polluting 31 500 thousands of metric tons of carbon annually.

Ulvena has received the Negative Carbon Emissions grade, polluting -3500 thousands of metric tons of carbon annually.

(OOC: Congrats, Aazer and Ulvena, for being our first contributors to lowering the world's carbon emissions in NSG. We need more like you.)

(EDIT: Stat change, I misread Ulvena's population, which threw off a percentage, apologies. You're actually another negative emitter.)

The only policies in my nation that I agree with are it's religious freedom and environmental sanctity policies. Do not think that I'm an anti-LGBT, dystopian repressive isolationist fascist and what have you mastermind trying to mask a greater goal under hordes of advertisements, propaganda and policing.
In short, my nation is a highly policed strict, seemingly utopian autocracy with an almost religious environmental fetish.

Residential Output

This is the output of the residents within your nation, and covers topics like individual recycling, how efficient are they with lighting and do they buy disposable or reusable products in stores.

What is the population of your nation? 3,453,602,880 (and counting)
Where do most people live in your nation? (Skyscrapers, hi-rises and etc) Aerospace cities/settlements or nomadic starfleets
Where do most people put their trash? (Compost, recycling, garbage bags and etc) In receptacles leading to centralized waste-to-energy conversion facilities
Do most people use disposable or long-lasting products? Long-lasting is preferred; more economical and efficient that way
How many cars per person; what is the most common fuel source for a car? Approximately 0.125 road vehicles per citizen; most common energy sources are hydrogen and electric
What type of lighting does an average person use; and how long a day do they use it for? Most YellowApplan structures use LED-based lighting; YellowApplans don't perceive 'days', so usage would be difficult to correlate to Gregorian timekeeping
What is most commonly used to heat a home? YellowApplan residential heating/cooling is centralized and provided by the ship or city/settlement component in which the residence exists; such heating is usually provided by electrical means or - less commonly - via hydrogen-gas or Hall effect burners
How efficient (energy-conserving) are your people with everyday tasks; what are some things your people do that is efficient? Most YellowApplans prefer low-power devices over high-power appliances, and thus are inherently more conservative with electrical energy consumption than citizens of other nations. YellowApplans will only purchase devices/appliances with high productivity-to-energy ratios
Do your people emphasize needs or wants more? Wants
How much water do your people use on an average day? Again, YellowApplans do not comprehend 'days'; they generally use right around one liter of water per hexadecimal kilosecond
Do your people actively help environmental causes like planting forests? Yes

Government/Corporate Output

This is the output directly or indirectly caused by the government and corporations. It covers direct carbon topics like power, carbon offsets, banning diesel vehicles and indirect ones like fuel taxes, carbon credits and making corporations liable for their outputs economically.

Largest producer of energy? (Solar, Coal and etc) Hydrogen fusion
Does your nation utilize carbon capture and storing or direct air capture? Both and/or neither; YellowApplans utilize CO₂ and CO waste gases (among other carbon-containing gases) to produce breathable oxygen and raw carbon, the latter being the base ingredient for YellowApplan nanotube, graphene, and diamond products
Does your government encourage carpooling, bicycling or public transit? All of the above
How strictly does your government regulate industrial pollution/waste? All waste products are recycled via centralized systems; thus, industrial pollution is an irrelevant concept
How does your government dispose of it's waste/garbage? Primarily, by breaking the waste down into its basic molecules and recycling these basic components to produce breathable oxygen, hydrogen fuel, water, and carbon-based materials
Does your government preserve forests; If so, what percent? YellowApple, Inc. possesses no forests within its jurisdiction (since they don't tend to exist in the stratosphere and/or in space)
How frequently is air travel used; what fuel do most of your planes use? Aerospace transit is used extensively by YellowApplans; most common power sources are hydrogen combustion and plutonium fission
Does your government utilize carbon credits; do they apply to corporations? No; they are not relevant, since carbon is utilized in fabrication materials
Does your nation use ocean fertilization, bio-charcoal or enhanced weathering to mitigate carbon? No; carbon-containing materials are simply extracted and broken down into basic atomic elements for further processing into useful substances/materials
Internationally, how active is your nation in environmental talks? Quite, though by complete accident; since YellowApple, Inc.'s aerospace cities and settlements are known for extraction of carbon dioxide from the air above nations, this property is often made a selling point when negotiating city/settlement migration paths
Has your government made reforestation or afforestation attempts? Yes
How safely is hazardous material disposed of? As safely as possible; anything that cannot be reused is deposited into a singularity for permanent destruction
On a scale of 1-10 (1 is least polluted, 10 is toxic,) how polluted are your nation's water supplies? 0
Have any fuel taxes or similar laws been enacted; if so, state all of them. None
How much mining is done by your nation? None on Earth; Extensive on planets beyond Sol
How strictly does your government regulate corporate pollution/waste? Very strictly; waste of potentially-recyclable materials/substances is absolutely unacceptable
How much land is devoted to commercial use (%); how much land is devoted to urban/residential use (%); how much for industrial use(%)? YellowApple, Inc. possesses no definite statistics, since there is hardly such a thing as YellowApplan 'land'; estimates for YellowApplan facilities in general are in the range of 25% commercial, 25% industrial, 50% residential (excluding public infrastructure)
