The nation simply expands as you play.
It expands at about 1 million per a day, then around 2 million per day when you reach 16 million, I think. When you hit 100 million, it starts climbing at about 5-6 million per day. I'm at 370 million, and it increases at 7 million per day for me.

Some issues (though I'm not sure which) will affect the growth rate either positively (increasing it) or negatively (reducing it - forced disappearances, executions, birth control etc)

"There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious—makes you so sick at heart—that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all." -Mario Savio

Yeah, but it's exam time and I'm considering Vacation Mode'ing my nation :(
Everything just stops, doesn't it? The population doesn't increase and issues don't come up, right?

If I recall correctly, the population does increase while your nation is in vacation mode. However, yes, issues do not come up while you are in VC.

No, issues don't affect population.
Yes, population increases while in vacation mode.
In the first few weeks, new nation's population grows by set numbers (1 million, 2 million, etc), then it grows by 5-8 million per day. In my experience, over time it averages out to about 6 million a day.

Pretty much this.

Issues do not affect population growth.
There was a signature here. It's gone now.

+ 1 million per day for 5 days, then + 2 million per day for 5 days, then + 3 million per day for 5 days, then + [5 to 8, determined randomly each day] million for each day after that...

Ah thanks, Bears. Couldn't recall the exact day/number, and searching the forums on this phone is a crapshoot.

Yeah, when you are on vacation mode the population does not increase, issues do not come up, and if you leave it on vacation mode for than 60 days, your country will be auto-deleted but can be recovered. :clap:
