The thing is, qhat if I want to do another roleplay? Or what if I dont qant thousands of my people to die, because that'll alter a roleplay I want to do?
Now, would it be nice? Yes, it would. But most people wont do them because it throws a wrench into normal national operations, they can't roleplay politically when their leaders are dying.
Competing for better economies and education is great an all, but the issue is that soon everyone will be perfect nations. The RMB has very fast progression, and has a strong lack of factors that would usually prevent progression as a nation irl. For example, companies and racism in America are slowing down educational and judicial rights progress respectively, but such factors aren't present in the RMB.
Our nation's are created to be simple due to our lack of knowledge. If we want to expand on our nations, we would have to do research, but most of us don't have time to sit continuously/nor want to spend our time learning in order to play a game.
As for the summits, it becomes very difficult and influence of summits are easily lost because many nation's either can't show up, or don't show up at the time of the roleplay. So when they loose their seat at the rable, they may decide to ignore the summit. And because we have no UN, they can get away with it.
To enact competition and summits, the RMB needs to implement consequences and effects into roleplay. Currently, it's easy to jump into war, easy to field 3000000 soldiers, easy to let companies do what they want yet have the perfect education.
Large international operations are interwsting, though.
We need more realism to do half of what you're suggesting. But that take a up a lot of time of research.
But that's my view on it. It's a good ideal, but it relies on the individuals.
Well my nation is fill of perfect people who are perfect and vegetarian and always kind oh btw were socialist so nobody ever is poor also everybody is atheist because religion is the opiate of the masses and we never kill anyone and the crime rate is zero because being a criminal is illegal and everybody loves me and has free love also we have no guns or miliaty cuz militarayes are fashist and evil and also were an anarcho syndicalist commune with no ruler everything is decided by majority vote and we all always agree so there is no government wihc is awesome because governments are fashist and evil.
Edit oh yeah we love nature and never hurt her and we are one with nature ❤️ and love all the animals and are vegan except not rally because eating plants is fashist and hurting the planet man so hurting loving things is punishable by death because we are enlightend and hurting plants and aminals is evil and fashti
I do confess that, while more realism would of course be more exciting and fun (and probably prepare me to DM better, mumble grumble stupid work), I'm not willing to put in that work right now. Bearthren's brain is smol and stuff.
(Also, just timezones make huge events more difficult. I don't expect anybody to read through the mountains of posts they've missed while sleeping to find the not-even-guaranteed Big Thing.)
