My Fellow Pakistani's,
NOTE: There will be no graphics in this article. Too tired.
When I was running for elections, I had a foreign opponent, he like many President's before me wrote along the same lines of how awesome he was going to make ePakistan when he is elected. I didn't make such a promise because I unlike many past president's am a realist.
When I got into power, I had no access to the State Bank of ePakistan despite requests sent to the so called care takers of ePakistan and when I had threatened to reset the passwords all the money disappeared.
Two organizations managed by Bozli 2xCP of ePakistan and multiple time congressmen had about 140 gold worth of currency and gold. Bozli messaged me requesting that the transfer of funds. I had by that time, already moved money from those two organizations into State Bank of ePakistan.
I later refunded Bozli from my own account the 140 gold of which he can confirm and did not take the money out of State Bank of ePakistan as funds were required to set Mutual Protection Pacts (MPPs).
MPPs which my predecessor Mohammad Bilal didn't seem to care much about, despite him having access to a lot of money. So from our one MPP with Serbia, My MoFA Alex and I contacted nations we had been friendly in the past with under ClusterStorm's presidency with Ishamael Naeblis was MoFA to try and get some of those MPP's back. It wasn't easy as quite frankly ePakistan isn't worth 10,000 PKR that the country would have to spend.
We could have signed a lot more MPPs but with an economy that doesn't generate enough revenue to be able to support 4 MPPs a month, I made the decision to opt out and only MPP large nations that have the highest chance of war so that the soliders of ePakistan are able to complete their DOs. The job would have been extremely difficult had Alex not been in the picture.
The next step was to organize the national supplies. Once again the lack of funds was a major hamper, but in a high level meeting with my Minister of Defence Annihilator, I specifically said, make the plan and I will fund it.
So I did, I bought Q6 tanks of the market and that began our to be honest first, transparent, with no unreasonable conditions attached national supply.
The dMoD Mehmood25 at the time, the emotional fellow that he is, resigned and deleted all the supply documents. He was defended by the infamous Policy who I will come to at the end of this article. MoD Annihilator is busy with exams, despite him being busy he still puts in 10 minutes a day to reward our strongest solider of the day. He is unable to supply, but for the last 2 days I have been supplying players that request.
We organized resistance wars, but were unable to do a training war with India or Iran. The risks and costs of a training war were too high. The country could simply not afford it.
The Minister of Community, Muz97 has been holding quizzes and IRC competitions for those who cared to participate and many young soldiers did. He initially started quizzes on articles than attempted to run the games on IRC. Very few citizens participated in this, but I believe consistency in this will help create more activity in the game and I will keep encouraging him to continue.
Running quizzes and daily supplies is hard work and time consuming, revolutionary's who sit in bunkers 2 meters below sea-level don't understand this.
Minister of Education
Kismat was not up to mark in publishing training articles, he was busy, was lost and quite frankly tired as he had been running the education for the last two governments, as per my suggestion. I should have replaced him with a fresh pair of legs and didn't do so and that is my fault.
I personally attempted another massive baby-boom, I initiated the first 650,000 email campaign that I had already paid for and spent about €30 euros on facebook advertisements. During this time, I was also having numerous discussions with eRepublik officials to help optimize the baby-boom process. The email campaign was a failure of epic proportions and the facebook campaign was too expensive per user joining the game. I decided to put the efforts to recruit new players on hold, as I will be flying to Bucharest this weekend to attend the 2012 Official Summit and have a meeting with Plato to discuss and execute a baby-boom.
Objective Failed / Put on hold.
Last but not least, I have been encouraging new players to invite their friends more and have offered 5 gold additional to each Society Builder they earn. Some have tried, some haven't bothered.
More recently, Policy who decided to make a come back into ePakistan politics claims he's a revolutionary. He writes entertaining articles but other than there isn't much her can offer ePakistan. His strength is very low for his age in the game, he can't lead battles, he spends more time criticising and his new past time favourite is trying to get people on e-pakistan.tk forums.
I personally don't think ePakistan is ready for forums, some members in my cabinet agree others disagree.
Policy was also planning to run for Country President but ended up endorsing me in a pity campaign citing Unity, Faith and Discipline. We're already in process of uniting all the Military Unit's in this country despite the reservations of Chief of Army Staff who is unfortunately in-active most of the time.
My attempt to treat all ePakistani's as equals was to try and bring Unity together, other countries have foreign individuals playing and they work with them. Hence inviting the Dioists who have as much right to ePakistan as a RL Pakistani does was the first step.
Inviting Somaka and his team into congress and national supplies was the second step.
I have faith in myself and my team that not only will we be instrumental in bringing this nation up but we will also have fun during that process. All of us treat this like a game.
So my fellow country men, if you feel I haven't done a good job so far, than by all means vote for the other candidate, I know that given the lack of money in the State Bank of ePakistan the onus of funding wars, supplies and MPPs was the responsibility of this government and we funded it and managed it.
If I could I would give myself a pat on the back.
My Minister of Finance is currently travelling but has promised me that on his return he will publish the full budget, i.e. expenses and revenue we have earned this month. Although the congress has been updated of all transactions taken place in the in-game congress thread.
I close this extremely long article that its important young players train and invite their friends into the game, ePakistan requires soldiers. With the addition of our Dioist friends coming in, our damage is rising. We are no longer ranked in the bottom two and our average damage has doubled.
Make no mistake and do not fall for fallen heroes, who will speak of their former glory days of how they battled India and how they took over China and sell you the great Pakistani dream. Those dreams were short-lived with long-term consequences of which is why we are here today.
The voyage is a long one and the path is filled with evil obstacles, but if a little hobbit could destroy the one ring, I am sure that my team and I will destroy the oligarchy once and for all.
Now in the spirit of the forums launched at http://www.e-pakistan.tk I suggest you all move any discussions or comments there. This will make our friend in the bunker very happy.
