I will point out that the industrial revolution is quite special and quite unlike any other minor technological revolution. I think it would happen without colonies though as I do believe the West was starting to pull ahead technologically particularly when it came to warfare.

But I believe they were starting to pull ahead because they had the extra resources and wealth that they stole from the colonies, and I believe that several ideas, not only wealth (I did write knowledge as well), were also taken from the colonies and put into the mix.

The colonies also provided a market for the products that the industrial revolution produced. For instance did the British more or less force their cheap mass-produced clothes on India, which hit their local clothes production hard and made them dependent on British cloth for a while. Then the British hiked up the prices and even further sucked out some more wealth from India. The US had another strategy though, where they literally went to Japan with gunboats and forced them to open their borders to American trade, or they would come back with more ships.

U mad?

The history of the industrial revolution began long before the mass European colonization began, starting with the Renaissance, and the continued scientific advancements, and other small technological revolutions since then.

The renaissance btw, wasn't a real thing. If it was, it was incredibly minor.

The renaissance was more cultural than technological. A lot of new art and stuff was being made.

I've done a small amount of research on the issue, and I don't think that's the way to get that Easter egg. I believe in order to get it, you need to have at least 1 billion in population, let your nation die (be inactive for 30 days), then revive it fairly soon (e.g. within a few days).
I haven't tested this though, but I'm fairly confident-ish.

[quote=solorni;17011090]The renaissance btw, wasn't a real thing. If it was, it was incredibly minor.

My main point with all of this was that the western nations owe a lot more of their success to other regions of the world (both as inspirations and as actual sources of both wealth and knowledge) than they give credit for.
To acknowledge that we are all bound together and that vital contributions to the modern world have come from all over would be better than to take credit for everything that has happened since 1820 and using this fallacy to excuse the skewed division of resources and living standard in the world.

This is somewhat unrelated but it makes me think about how the Chinese are in large part responsible for their decline from Western powers. Unlike Japan, they refused to reform on a belief that they were superior to the Westerners who they termed as barbarians.

I have gotten it by having it in the name before.. but having over a billion citizens makes sense.. only my older nations get it that way.. also only if it's the nations first Easter egg. For some reason if they have one already it never shows up..

Speaking of Easter, I wonder if the NationStates Bunny will make its appearance again this Easter?
