  1. Good to see Alex was busy with this sleuthing rather than clarifying rules in any case.
  2. As far as the tax farm claims go me and Kris compiled literally the entire bank history of GWPC to demonstrate that the interaction between NPO and GWPC was less than 10% of just the monetary value GWPC moved around internally. It was clearly an appropriate relationship for a protectorate and feeder alliance
  3. What percentage of GWPC’s wealth went to NPO, you moron? Because internal transactions not counting any out of alliance bank transactions were literally 10 times the GWPC- NPO bank transactions
  4. The 850 million figure is entirely fabricated. Kris provided you the logs, you nitwit
  5. Mao is honestly one of the best diplomats in this game. Think about it- he just established treaties with the two dominant forces in the game, making them pretty much untouchable. I doubt most major alliance leaders are capable of swallowing their pride while managing a bunch of angry members who want to fight a war they can’t win while keeping everything together like he did.
  6. To be fair, Mao was very courteous in all my interactions with. A couple of his now former team members on the other hand both instigated this whole thing and tried to convince him to take us on once it escalated. I'm honestly not sure what they expect to happen.
  7. Defining what socialism and capitalism is rather than what the best policies actually are is a bad way to go about it because every nation's political situation and discourse is vastly different. Most self identified socialists in the United States would at least be content with most of the policies within the Nordic Model (ie, literally Bernie Sanders, a self identified socialist who stated Denmark should be a model for policy). Most far left parties in Europe on the other hand would see that as a weak compromise. I think anyway the most standard definition, based upon ownership the means of production, is rapidly becoming obsolete because real political and economic power doesn't necessarily correlate with that anymore. Personally, the books that influenced me the most was the Logic of Political survival, the author of which also wrote a very entertaining and accessible summary of in The Dictator's Handbook, which approaches the likely outcomes of political and social structures from the perspective of how the leader needs to behave in order to stay in power. Basically, the more power in centralized in a few hands, the worse things get for the average person, and the more the system requires vicious and corrupt behavior by those in top to even survive and stay in power. Whether that power is concentrated in the form of a CEO who stacked the system so he isn't really accountable to his employees or common shareholders in any way, or a Stalinist Dictatorship, unaccountable power is bad and should always be minimized if you want a just society.
  8. You could just message in game and ask for terms of surrender. What does this improve on besides making losing wars matter even less than it already does?
