i understand. its like 'greenwashing'. but the existence of massive enough interest and concern, to pressure them into doing this, is an encouraging sign.
if it does nothing else, at least its pretty, while the paint is still fresh.
That would be somewhat amusing! My pretitle is already optimized so I will pass on changing it. However, I encourage other nations to change theirs!
It would also be funny to use "z" in place of "s" whenever possible (no throwing it into words where Americans use "s") to razz Candlewhisper Archive!
Time for some stat-posting, of a stat I suppose is only the natural result of going green, and never really cared for until it pops up:
Darths and Droids is ranked 17th in the world and 1st in Forest for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 12,985.33 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
Below is a statement from "KNS2"
The Landfill of Kinganaryasia has always been colored, in fact we enforce discrimination by color or origin since there are different "leftovers from a selective process of processing consumables, originating from discarded materials reusable by force of individual will", composed of different materials and purposes .
Now about what concerns our beloved Scrapers, who have reached the number of 2 billion at the last weighing. We assert their freedom of choice and decision in a uniform way, but we must warn that once divorce is prohibited and marriages are permanent, we recommend choosing this issue with extreme care. In Kinganaryasia there is no taste before choosing. If it's not a choice then there will be no regrets, that's what she said.

My nation is from an alternate timeline splitting after the 2000 US presidental election.
Western Continental Divide is the 7 westernmost states in the United States (California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona) which collectively agreed to join together after the dissolution of the US after the 2000 election and the even more disastrous 2004 "election." The east coast split into New England and the South/Confederacy, with a Great Plains state forming a large central area with the capital in Chicago. Colorado and Texas established themselves and independent states.
While the three westernmost states (California, Oregon, Washington) merged easily, but the other four states agreed to join only because they were close and wanted to combine for a larger international voice.
Well, after 2 hours, a crate of materials, a fifty foot extension cord, a solid kilogram of dry mix, and several evasive maneuvers, operation Waffle Time has come to an end. I made a lot of waffles, I've become "iconic", and I burned myself twice, but most importantly, I served dozens of students freshly made waffles for free. They cleared the cafeteria, kicked out my partner in crime, and eventually caught me and told me I was a fire hazard, but I lasted a long time, and I'm very proud of that. I probably should have been studying for my diploma tomorrow, but that's no fun.
cameroi's (or perhaps i should say the planet lananara's, as cameroi was never on earth anyway) timeline
"split from earth's" before the roman empire,
which never came into existence,
with the result of 'christianity' being more like buddhism,
and the library of alexandria never burned
and thus no middle ages preventing the era of steam and electricity begenning around 1100,
and the making of war ending perminently around then because it was inconvenient to rail infrastructure and the aesthetics of creative design.
with no hatred of logic to hold development back,
the entire solar system had become accessable by 1900,
and the planet; lananara, was welcomed into the galactic consultative federation by the year 2000,
so such things as ftl and anti-gravity are quite ordinary and common,
yet populations have been kept small
because, with all our advanced technology,
people still prefer living in small villages out in the woods,
linked by solar powered narrow gauge railways.
yes we don't need them.
we have point to point teleportaion.
but cultures keep what they love, and we love our little trains, and forests and mountains, and little furry creatures.
which with our genetic technology, anyone can look like any sort of life form they choose.
and thus hunting is not advised,
as any living creature you encounter might be as sapient as yourself.
of course that creates a situation as some of us choose to be carniverous and nocturnal.
for those of us who can't digest vegetable matter, we cultivate meat mountains,
which have no central nervous system
and thus no self awareness,
and taste wonderful.
and with ultrimation, capitalism doesn't work either.
if you can make everything without having to pay anyone to help make it,
who's going to have any money to buy what you make?
so we've bypassed that pretty much entirely.
why create artificial shortages when everyone can just enjoy being creative instead anyway.
so our economics are a kind of gift economy,
where prestege is earned by generosity and creativity.
no one has to do anything, but people do anyway, because they would get bored not to.
and our culture long ago discovered that just being entertained can be incredibly boring too.
and some people even like to do everything by hand as a form of meditation,
and their choice is as respected as anyone else's.
the learning and designing if technologies is more popular then dramatic entertainment too.
and mazes and forests are loved, because there's something in our national character that just simply needs them,
for our minds to stay healthy.
You can correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the WA can change someone's classification. A resolution won't change member nation's stats, and I can imagine it doesn't change how they are interpreted, because that would be a lot of work. Maybe your economic output growing caused it somehow?
Edit: no, it would be a change in personal freedoms, not economic.
