I have lately wondered what might be considered a difficult (but still interesting) feat to accomplish within eRepublik. Something that pushes the envelope of what can be done within the platform -- and within the artificial structures that we as players have constructed on that platform.
There are of course obvious ones such as the medals: Media Mogul, Resistance Hero, Battle Hero, Society Builder, President. But the easy ways of achieving all of these have been common knowledge for a long time now.
In mid-2009, eRepublik acquired a new feature that changed permanently the way politics (and wars) played out: citizenship. After that change, you had to curry the favor of one of the congress members in that country (or its immigrations department) to acquire a new citizenship. Moreover, in small countries, these may be highly prized, as there would be an average of 1 citizenship to hand out per congress member per 400 citizens in a country with a 40 member congress.
Thus, the concept is born a year later for a great competition. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to acquire citizenship in each of the 60 countries currently in eRepublik.
1 - You will have to have 60 screenshots in order to win, each one of the approval page with the name of the congress member who approved you and the date it happened.
2 - You cannot 'shop' your screenshots. If there is concern about it, these congress members may be questioned about whether you were approved by them.
3 - You do not get retroactive credit. All approvals must take place on June 1, 2010, or later.
If you are the first to achieve this, you will receive the title of 1st World Citizen and a 200 GOLD prize. (There is no second prize. There can be only one.)
Please be sure to link to this article, for the trackback, if you want to report on your adventures as you attempt to become the 1st World Citizen yourself. To keep things interesting, I will be in the competition personally. Good luck to everyone!
