I've had an idea for a while now that I feel might add some sort of entertainment back into the game, and that is the addition of the rest of the world countries to eRepublik. I believe the last country added to the game was Albania, and it's been over a year since we've had a new country.
Obviously a big reason for the fact many countries that are not in the game are not in it to begin with is that their is not a real substantial internet base that could be playing the game. However, filling in the rest of the map would give the ability for players who actually may be from any such country not in the game to involved, but that's not the main idea I'm writing this.
Opening up the rest of the world will present a large chunk of the map that could be used for 'colonial' warfare and open up new fronts that war could be fought from. For entertainment value alone, I think it would be worth it.
Besides, eRepublik has added countries before without any heed to internet penetration of said countries (North Korea, Saudi Arabia, etc.) and has added new nations just to ignite conflicts between countries (Macedonia, Cyprus, Albania), so filling in the rest of the map as a new battlefield wouldn't be too far off.
If eRepublik does this (extraordinarily doubtful), they should also add new resources in these countries not found elsewhere to encourage the takeover of them and wars over resources not found elsewhere.
Ah, but this is all wishful thinking. Just remember, to solve your problems in eRepublik, no matter what they might be, Buy Gold™
