There are several ways to lower or “right-size” your population. The classic is to just line them up and execute every tenth person.

If you want a more dramatic decrease, consider bioengineering a virus and releasing it amongst your population. Of course you should first make sure that you and your loyal supporters are given the vaccine...

Alternatively you can also target people geographically, like quarantining a province and seizing all food within.

Or you can just pick a fight with a superior military power like yours truly and watch your numbers crash overnight!

Hope that helps!

Sincerely,

Supreme Leader Augusta Sargasso

OOC: If you're looking for realism figure out what you want your population to be, and RP it as being that (with no explanation as to where the extras went - they just never existed).

That said, you'll do better in war RPs if you just go with the NS stats. Using those stats, it doesn't take long before a nation has an almost-insurmountably large pool of fighting-age people to put into your army. Of course, the advantage here won't be as great for you as it is for the Decepticons, since you're playing with mere humans instead of literal sapient transforming war machines for a population. Still, larger population = better, as far as war is concerned, or for eventually claiming that you own vast amounts of territory.

We would suggest setting up a labor provision contract with our Bureau of Biological Labor instead of picking any fights. It's much less costly than a war, lets you get rid of only the people you want rid of, and you don't have to worry about being branded a genocidal maniac. You can even spin it that you're helping your people find work abroad, and if someone finds out where you sent them, you can claim you had no idea that it would be outright chattel slavery a permanent situation.

No war RPs; no open RPs.

Nanyang Soviet Republic wrote:Nanyang SR is based on Java, West Malaysia, Singapore, Sumatra, and the greater Sunda islands. As such, my nation has about 229 million people. I know that's a lot, which is why I'm wondering how to lower it. Considering my nation just came out of a revolution, what SHOULD my population be?


The easiest and most realistic way to figure out an RP population, in my opinion, is to first determine how big your country is geographically, how much of that is actually fit for human habitation, and what sort of population density you're hoping to arrive at. Draw a map, even! Seems like you've already chosen your country based on real-world locations.

Once you've figured out how much space you've got to work with, you can then take your population density figure and extrapolate from that. Or you can look to real world countries that are economically, geographically, culturally, and/or historically similar to your own, and approximate yours based on those. Quirks in your nation's history can, of course, cause the figure to be higher or lower than that as necessary. Famine, frequent war, disease... they can all explain lower numbers.

I'll ask again - why is my Q&A thread so quiet? Am I doing something wrong? Also, if I were to make an embassy thread, how do I make it a hit?

So, in my nation's canon, there's an existing superhero like in my nation's version of "real life." Captain Oppermenia (sort of like captain America), who was given super soldier enhancements to be able to perform feats like lifting cars. Basically, the government found this soldier with enhanced abilities and decided to use him as a patriotic symbol.

I want to make a factbook about him, but I'm not sure how to go about it. Like the formatting (can't tell what sort of template to use), as well as if I should do separate factbooks for the superhero and everyday identities, or if I should just do them both as the same factbook.

And there's another thing with it. I wanna create a pic as a visual for the suit of Captain Oppermenia. I have a rough sketch, but I want a polished computer version that I can display for factbooks and RPs. So, can anyone give me advice on how to do that?

If I could get help on these three issues, then that would be much appreciated.

So, how could I get a pic as a visual for Captain Oppermenia’s suit? Sorry, I know I’ve asked this already. Is there any pc friendly app I could use, or even phone app (one that’s easy, too)? A place I could request one, etc.?

What should the Glass Oasis' TLD be?

I probably put this in the wrong place, but I can't find the right one, and I can't find how to create dispatch polls, so I guess I'm putting this on nsg. Should it be on F&NI?

Anyways, what should my calling code be, what sounds the best?
Answers not listed due to lack of enough poll space:
.goa
.gla
.osis
.glss
.glos
.glo

Help appreciated
