I am glad to hear that peace has been restored. Aelyria is happy to help with rebuilding infrastructure and examining the root causes of the rebellion; the former helps move on from the trauma, while the latter will help build a newer, better situation so that armed conflict is not needed to address the rebels' concerns. I find that almost all rebellions have at least one legitimate and serious grievance, even if unscrupulous or nefarious actors co-opt the movement for selfish ends.

What're your folks thoughts on the issue, a Switch in time kills nine? This issue pertains to timekeeping, specifically daylight savings time. In this issue, you have the elements of daylight savings time, and what technology you use to track time to take into account. One might ask why we use a system that artificially warps time by 1 hour. And as well while mechanical/digital clocks are efficient, such a device has led to a world obsessed with sharp time frames, and deadlines. This causes an extreme amount of stress in the human populations. And thus mental fatigue. As well deadlines cause physical tension. Not to say that working by other means is not tiresome, but if not under a deadline then less tension is formed. Also, while sundials are seen today as antiquated, new designs were being invented into the 1930s. Please share your thoughts on this matter.

A great storm makes landfall the coast Balder, light intermittent showers begins to sprinkle the land, gradually giving away to moderate continuous shower towards heavy showers, white flashes twist and turn across the midday skies.

The most important thing to focus on!

Aelyria wrote:Sounds like a good way to convince most people to never actually marry. Sort of like how making it really really difficult to fire employees makes it so companies are really reluctant to hire any, because they need to be confident that those they hire are actually worth keeping. (This is thought to contribute to the higher than expected unemployment rate in France, for example, which is especially bad for youth and individuals of North African ancestry.)

Not saying it's good for so many people to be getting divorced these days, but I wonder if this policy isn't opposing the goal it's intended to achieve (getting people to take marriages seriously). Obviously this isn't the real world so the consequences of a policy are much more vague and arguable. Just something to think about.

i may apply my beliefs to this simulated nation but i also do what i believe is best

So I recently encountered the issue a Foreign exchange of ideas. And I'm not certain which to choose on this one. On one hand, I believe education should be available to all, and thus having some foreign students isn't a bad thing, but on the other hand, those foreign students take the places of those which could be filled with native born students. These native born people may now not be able to receive an education(since even with free education or extensive programs, resources are still limited). And I would not want to deny native born citizens an education. What're your folks thoughts?

i think my economy just rose to frightening damn im doing good and im in the top 5% for safest and for lowest crime rates

Well, i think it depends on how u do it. For example, u can add more quotas to the admission process and make them exclusively for foreigners. In that case, it would be more expensive, but no national students would be left out.
On the otger hand, u could transform some admission quotas, so u have the same number lf total students, but some can or must be foreigner. In that case, it would not be more expensive (not considerably at least) but u will reduce the number of nationals who will not study that year.
Personally, as i believe the free market, (although regulated in some aspects) it is the decision of each insitution what do they want to do, according to the offer and demand of the product.

Those are good points, but the issue does not provide such nuance in it's choices.
