    What is Erepublik?

    Erepublik is a global politics, war, economy, and society simulation.
    You can run for president, be a congressman, start a company, fight in wars, be a media tycoon, or an asshat to foreigners.
    The best part about this game is that a LARGE majority of players in each country are actually ethnically from that country.
    This opens a whole new potential for trolling and griefing (Atajerk, for those who get the reference).
    Many large internet communities have played this game at once time, from Dio Brando's /v/akistan to the Goons' Rush.


    How do I join?

    If you want to be cool toward another Fp'er use this link:

    http://www.erepublik.com/en/referrer/Gilles+Garnier



    n00b guide:

    USA and Canada have been almost all conquered by a foreign allied force called PEACE Gc.
    So if you join these countries you might end up in Hungary,Iran,Russia or France controlled states or provinces


    Go to the Human Resource page and join any 0-skill company t) Just join any company that doesn't already have the "max productivity" amount of workers (click the company page to check).

    I'm a sweatshop worker at last! Now what?

    Make sure to WORK AND TRAIN EVERY DAY! This gives you EXP and will get you closer to level 6! To train, go up to the "my places" tab and click "army". To work, click "company" in the same my places tab.

    I got all that, but is that all?

    For initial newbies, yes. However, feel free to browse the media section looking at news from all over the world. Likewise, you can post in the forum.
    A lot of the game's depth comes from international politics/relations via the media/forum/outside forums (like this one), so feel free to delve right in!

    I hope we can bring in another 100 players like last time!




    We do not have a goal right now, but if some of you are playing the game right now and have an agenda we could all strive for, just post your ideas.

    If you join, it's a good idea to tell !



    Inspired upon an older thread by Private.ryan.

    I've been on for a LONG time, already have 11 or so Brawn and 7.10 or so in a job.

    Only problem is, Germany is dying and America was conquered by Indonesia and Portugal (using a gold exploit and some other glitches.)

    Already a thread.

    However, I'm Mark Wahlberg in-game, I have been really active in Germany since the revolution, wrote the wiki, served as congressman, finally Minister of Interior, but after Germany started getting royally fucked a few weeks ago by Poland I just fell out of activity.

    I still work and train, but I'm going to wait until I'm motivated again to play actively.

    No, actually USA is about to vanish, like Switzerland. It's economy is in wrecks. Out of the 1900 companies they have lost about 1100(by losing territory, territory which has the biggest ammount of resources). Also lost 20% of population (those who stayed in the conquered areas). This led to overpopulation and a sharp rise in unemployement. The average wage is now of 2USD. Yep... Pretty much fucked. Sorry.
    Yay for reading the news and knowing the numbers. It's gonna be the perfect eWorld without them.

    As far as I can see, my state has been conquered by Portugal and about 8 states still belong to the US still, and they refused the peace treaty thing.

    lol

    The only peace treaty that ever even existed was the one that the one written by that dumbass in the umbrella party that got leaked, so he got fired from the cabinet.

    PEACE doesn't want your surrender, they just want you off the map.

    Also, Emerick doesn't have anything to do with your shitastic army.

    You're very late. Last April/May, Pvt. Ryan collected a few hundred Facepunchers and pretty much dominated part of eRepublik - using our force to set up one of the largest eCompanies (hurf) in the eWorld (durf) and later liberating eGermany (hurr) with a series of resistance wars mostly funded by us.

    I think a lot of Facepunchers got into the game because of that exciting planning and military revolution. Now, the entire eWorld (durr) is extremely unstable, so radical movements like that aren't noticed as much. The biggest problem is the nationalism - people instinctively defend or do anything for their own country in real life. It's nice to have diversity, but often times nationalism is taken too far. There's a lot of racism and all of the nationalism just makes the game bland and gloomy.

    Wow Lazor, didn't realize you were active here. But yeah, Peru is pretty sweet guys. The president was banned from Facepunch, that's how awesome we are.

    Edit: Man do I love boxen.

    I'm pissed, Pennsylvania was apparently conquered by Russia in the two days I was logged off, and I went from around $120, to zero of the Russian currency. I can't buy fucking food or anything now.

    I joined and the first thing that popped up was "pay 15$ to unlock teh awesoom feeturs "
    So I closed my browser tab.

    I hate them "pay to be better". Either pay from the beginning or don't charge anything at all.
    Sadly that's all today's browser games can come up, problem is, every browser game without it is going down.
    I think people want it that way. So they can be better by IRL money rather than spending time in a game.
    Sad that is.

    My character died a long time ago. I made a new one a couple of months ago, but they're probably dead too. I stopped playing the first ime slowly because of lack of time, but second time round it was because they'd made it so you had to either play forever or pay to unlock most features.
    First time I had a semi-successful anti-government revolutionary newspaper running after just a week, now you need to be about level 7 and pay tons of game money to even start your own publication. By semi-successful I mean I had 12 subscribers, actually wrote real articles and had the president himself arguing with me about my negative portrayal of his good deeds, "Cowardly President pulls out of glorious war", "President continues to ignore serious problems of healthcare and housing".
    All that gone because I don't want to pay many, many pounds. If you live in a lower class it is impossible to survive a vertain number of months without buying a health boost pack with real money.

    It's aiming to be more realistic. In reality, you need to pay "tons of money" to get published.

    I'm less bothered by that than with the level system, the draw of this for me was being able to make a difference in society without 'grinding' work for a month or two. Heck, I don't even think you can vote before a certain level. Or is that just joining a party?

    JI'll make a new guy anyway, any particular country?

    Peru, in honour of that HOI3 AAR!

    It's not pay to be better it's pay to unlock features early. The only pay features are more message inbox space, inventory slots and shouts.

    If you sign-up using my link I'll give you half of the five gold I get for inviting you. You need to get to level 6 to get the gold. Canada needs more people.

    I've just been playing eRep to make in-game money these days. I'm getting close to 80g at this point.

    I've also been playing for a little over a year now. If anyone needs any in-game help just message me on eRep. The name is Arwin.
