The single biggest factor is, unfortunately, just time. I have an enormous economy because my nation is very old--the last time I CTE'd was almost five years ago (I was automatically put into Balder at that time and have been a continuous resident since), and it had been around for multiple years before that, too.

However, if you want to make "quick" changes (note the quotes, they'll still take time), you'll have to be comfortable with cutting taxes, eliminating social services, reducing government oversight, and increasing subsidies. Basically, any time you see a response that says any of the following, you should try to take it: "we could use some subsidies," "cut regulations so we can do more," or "cut taxes so people can spend money the way they like." Obviously each issue will phrase it differently, but those are the general ideas.

Keep in mind that a very likely consequence of this accelerated growth is that your nation may become more like a Corporate Bordello or Compulsory Consumerist State rather than a Conservative Democracy. Further, accelerating growth in this way is likely to increase corruption and reduce your civil (and possibly political) liberties even further than they already have been. These things may or may not bother you, I'm just noting them so you are informed in advance.

How do apply for the legendary card thing?

Greetings!

As your nation is already in the World Assembly and endorsing the Delegate, to apply all you need to do is telegram Balder Dispatches (with any form of wording indicating that you would like to apply/would like the chance to receive a Legendary card).
