1) The biosphere regenerates, but I agree it is limited. I like to think the solution involves outer space, but any such endeavor would be incredibly expensive.
2) I'm not sure automation will be the end of work any time soon. The factory I worked at had a number of robots, and was always looking to add more, but their headcount never went down as a result of the robots.
3) Surveillance states and authoritarian socialism are my mortal enemies, as they should be for anyone who loves freedom. I support breaking up monopolies in general, and big tech and media companies in particular. Competition is a key component of capitalism, after all.
It seems we agree on many things, but not all of them. Which is cool.
Wait, advisor? Can you tell me more about that?
I have to admit a certain liking for blue eyed blondes.
GET YOUR MOOSE STEW!!!!!!
*takes out tables, pots of stew*
SneylandI'm concerned that moose aren't making any more babehs. The male moose seem to be distracted by the internet..... please cut of their internet connection and lock them alone with female mooses in the cages. e__e I don't like doing this but they've forced my hand.
Make sure you marry each meece couple before you lock them in the cage... we don't want meece being born out of wedlock..... WE ARE A CHRISTIAN FARM.
Simply the one on the options of the issue. I choose because it sported small scale capitalism, alas the constrains of the game is a) all public "socialism", b) capitalism.
My nation is fully religious.
Does His Holy Heftiness of the Church of Tubbius count?
Tubbius is feeling particularly portly this morning. It might have been caused by the pair of cream pies eaten at 3:00 a.m.
Only in Treadwellia would the king begin overseeing Christmas decorations in the middle of October.
Then again, His Rotundity does have a special connection to said holiday. Rumor has it He spent some time very early this morning (between pie snacks) outside in the barn, examining The Sleigh, trying on The Suit, and showing affection to His ages old, immortal pets and carriers: The Reindeer. Everything is apparently going according to plan, for the Corpulent Claus has been much a-jiggle of the tummy and a-giggle of the voice and a-wiggle of His naturally pointed, elven ears today.
Leestcheck, capital of the Imperium
The Imperial Statistics Office released the latest data from the biannual census today. Forecasts predict a continuous population growth, as Imperial women keep having 2,5 children on average, well above the level needed for replacement (2,1). Analysts attribute this to increased economical wellbeing, state investment in childcare, worker rights and no social stigma on stay-at-home parents.
As all Imperial citizens recieve a basic state salary that rises with rank, and childcare such as Kindergarten is generally free of charge, having children poses little to no material risk.
As a consequence of this trend, the Imperial population is expected to grow past the 8 billion mark later this year.
