Trophies for the last 1%, 5% and 10%

Postby Independent Federation of Croatia » Tue Jan 14, 2020 1:09 pm

My idea and question is for game moderators/administators..

In this game we have yellow, orange and green trophies for the top 1%, 5% and 10%

Can we have trophies for the last 1%, 5% and 10% ?

The reason for this:

If your country is Anarchy, it will be a success for you if your country is among the countries with the least autocracy, on the back of the rankings.

If your country is a dictatorship for you, it will be a success if your country is among the states with the least political freedoms, last in the rankings

For some countries, being among the last in crime, obesity, ideological radicality, taxation, culture, pacifism is a success.

So can we add trophies for the last 1%, 5% and 10%?

English is not my first language, so I apologize in advance for grammatical mistakes.

Some stats have opposites but many do not for example


Life span is directly inverse to death rate (Duh! I know)

But other stats like weather while they effect other things there is no badge for having the worst weather possible! I fully support getting bottom badges for stats that do not have opposites.

I agree! I FULLY support having a Worst Weather badge!

It's certainly better then trying to make opposite stats for everything.

I completely agree that this is a really good idea. That said, some statistics already have opposites. Those don't need opposite trophies.

Postby Independent Federation of Croatia » Wed Jan 15, 2020 12:04 pm

I would like to get trophies for everything that is last 1%, 5% and 10%.

My state is Psychotic Dictatorship (police state), so autocracy is opposite of political freedom, But I will be so happy if I get the trophy for the last 1%, 5% or 10% of political freedom and Civil Rights.

I would like to get trophies for opposite also, because I am so proud to be in the last 1%, 5% or 10%.

I would be very happy if the administrators, game moderators read this and thought about this idea, which seems to be liked by some other nations than mine.

The "Authoritarianism" stat is not a polar opposite of political freedom, nonetheless I agree with you; I would love to have bottom percentile badges.

Yea this could be pretty cool. Not sure about doing it for 1%, 5%, and 10%, might get a bit cluttered.

Maybe just doing it for bottom 1%, and last place? That be cool to see. Pick like a dark blue or something for the color.

I agree. I think I’d prefer a dark gray or something to a dark blue, but yeah, just doing it for bottom 1% is better than adding 5% and 10%.

I’d like to add that I think they could separate those trophies, with the last 1% trophies being last.

I would agree with this only if (a) censuses with opposites were excluded (as has been said), and (b) if industries and perhaps government departments were excluded (to prevent needless clutter).

As for the colour of the badges, I think the present grey would suffice. It gets the idea across.

If we really want a revamp, then I think a few should be changed. I never liked grey being the default, as it always seemed a bit melancholy and depressing; I also think there should be a blue, but for one of the top ones. I suggest:
Top 1%: Gold
Top 5%: Blue
Top 10%: Bronze
10%-90%: Green (not displayed on country's profile)
Bottom 10%: Grey (optional to display on country's profile)
Bottom 5%: Black (optional to display on country's profile)
Bottom 1%: Red

Aren’t there already metrics that represent either side of a spectrum ?

So not low lifespan but high death rate ?

I might be the only one who doesn't really like this idea. I think it will create unnecessary clutter on the nation's page, and also distracts from the truly earned top-percentile badges. Also, as others have said, a lot of stats already have approximate opposites, so the bottom-percentile badges will be predictable based on the top badges anyway.
