The United Socialist States of Caracasus wrote:Aye, it's more wonder at how environmentally friendly Forest is than anything! I am trying to get my environment score up higher - it's good to know it's possible.

So do unhuman reserves, even if this means crushing human rights even more

Wait i see what is our issue, the first nation has NUCLEAR PLANTS!

The Anarcho-Socialist Federation of Communal Ecotopia wrote:Hey Forest friends,
I have an issue question. Several months ago, I was able to raise my workforce participation rate to 97 or so percent with option 2 of Social Equality Reaching Embarrassing Levels. After a few weeks, I got an issue that inadvertently plummeted it 66 or so percent. I was able to restore my numbers yesterday, but cannot, for the life of me, remember the issue that crashed it. Can anyone provide insight?

I am aware of five issues that can drastically lower Employment under right conditions.

...The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Regnans City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ash economy, worth a remarkable 4,274 trillion Crown Fires a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 287,349 Crown Fires, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,696,209 per year while the poor average 22,555, a ratio of 75.2 to 1...

For some reason, I read this as 'vegetation that emits lots of radiation' rather than nuclear power plants....

Mozworld and Mount Seymour

So far I like this flag the best.

FYI I will be traveling/camping until around July 5th (going to the Redwoods, Trinity Alps, and Lassen all in Northern California) I'll probably be able to pop in every day or three if anything big comes up but I'll be limited to quick phone based responses. Flag contest organizers I'm good with whatever voting method you see fit. Personally I suggest either a ranked method run on the message board, or two polls on the RMB the second being a run-off between the top two vote flag assuming no flag gets a majority on the 1st ballot. But your free to do it as you please. One thing to consider is the number of flags we have exceeds the options available on a poll I think so you may need to do two flights or something. I think I'll be fully back around when the demos end so I should be around to help sort this out further if need be, but I have utter faith. Anyway be good and I'll try to take some pictures for the next photo contest :)
