Power moves. Plain and simple.
It never changes.
Certainly. =) I suppose it makes sense for one nation to cover a range of climates since the map covers a planet!
Also, way to make me feel like a broken record Leonism! x)
The peer reviewed journal Imperial Science (that's the name of the international edition, the local name is Imperiale Wissenschaft) published a meta analysis in its latest edition according to which the scientific output of Leonism is nowadays ranked in the Top1% of Lazarus. While it acknowledged that Aigania was the most advanced nation on Planet Lazarus by some margin, and was unlikely to be displaced from its leading position for the forseeable future, the article noted - with quite some patriotism - that very few nations were nowadays more advanced than the Imperium. Especially in the fields of fusion power, laser optics, theoretical physics and material science, Imperial scientists were founded to have an edge over most competitors on the planet.
Unusually for an Imperial science journal - at least in comparison to the last few years - a commentary to the article also noted the importance of international cooperation for maintaining a constant stream of innovation and improvement in science. The Science and Research Treaty with The Copper States was found to be a chief driver in many of the latest research developments.
Präfekt II. Klasse Dr. Isabell Machnow, one of the editors of Imperial Science, commented that "[...]while both The Copper States and Leonism are significantly behind the scientific powerhouse of Aigania, our cooperation has helped us to catch up more than would have been possible for each nation individually. The Außenministerium along with the Ministry for Science and Technology, should strive to forge further science and research treaties with other progressively minded nations in Lazarus. According to the metrics we used in this meta analysis, both The New California Republic and New Rogernomics, two nations with which we have already established diplomatic contact, have a thriving scientific community with which we have very little contact so far. And these are just two examples out of many."
It will be interesting to see wheter the Imperial scientific community can increase international cooperation with other scientists, to the mutual benefit of all involved. As soon as power politics and security interests come into play, this may become more difficult than it sounds. With so many aspects of Imperial science easily translating into advanced military technology - just think about our laser optics or fusion power, for example - it will be difficult to prevent classified information being spread abroad once we open our scientific institutions to more scientists from abroad.
The new stats look awesome. Check the news and you'll see. I can't wait to see officially, how patriotic my citizens are. Initially I was a bit annoyed about the reduction of my cheese export industry, but that's okay. It doesn't need to be big to make perfect cheeses.
In the words I someone I used to know, "small is beautiful."
The FRCP is concerned whether our excess of gulag'd political dissidents secluded wilderness resort goers will count for the census' hunger ratings.
We hope not.
Just a note that I'm gonna be putting together the results for our latest LazEndo event today, so if you've have been meaning to do the things but haven't, get a move on! ^-^ Thank you to everyone who has been participating in the last week; we've been able to raise the average endorsement level in the region all the way from 2 to over 2.5! Considering the number of folks in the region who aren't in the WA (and thus have no endos), that is quite impressive..
Hi everyone. I've become a little worried about our future.
Most see this as a problem, for YouTube only.
However, COPPA is targeting everyone. We are kind of, the equivalent to content creators (e.g.: FACTBOOK, RP, etc.).
What do you guys think? Am I overreacting?
Feel free to watch this video in its entirety, if you have the patience, and the time, to do so.
↓↓↓↓My worry, in detail. ↓↓↓↓
Phew, I thought I had more time. Just got the last endos done in my phone, hope it still counts :)
Glorious Leader woke up with another sinus headache and even worse drainage. Today is going to suck
Honestly white people are the cause of all problems in the world. I think they should just stop breeding
So with the weaponization beta I go from .14 guns per capital to 9. About darn time!
I think the Cossack Peoples is right it is about time we do something about these idealistic radicals by using Military might. They must be silenced for their outrageous and down right unflattering actions. Lets end this terror.
Good to know my Italian friend.
