eRepublik is a game with a mix of political, economic and military strategies. You can excel at one and do well but to be successful you need to do well at them all as they are linked.
* Your economy will suffer if you don't have the military might to take extra resources to boost production.
* Your military will suffer if your politics is so bad that you make extra enemies who increase damage done against you.
* Your politics will suffer if you can't attract new players to your country because you have nothing to give them.
eUK is a country which has always focused exclusively on politics, it is celebrated by the guys in charge and they proudly talk about it. However our economy and military suffer because they are neglected and that hurts our political strategy.
Our politics hasn't always been the greatest either, even though it's been our focus. We have made unnecessary enemies, we have been wiped off the map for months. The UK is in trouble.
Why we need expansion
There are 5 different weapons resources spread around random regions. Have none and everyone in the country makes 10 weapons every time they work. We have three and make 16 weapons. Some countries have all 5 and make 20, you have to take them from other countries to get 5.
If the UK could take one extra resource region, all of our weapons production would be boosted by 2 per working, from 16 to 18. More weapons to sell and more weapons to fight with. Fighting for your country is fun too, with Patriot Medals giving regular 5g boosts to us all. The benefits are obvious.
Not a single other eUK Party has this as an aim. Why?
Why nobody wants expansion
The reason why nobody is talking about this is that it will be difficult. We need to build up our military damage and coordination, maybe even getting lots of new players into eUK. We need to up our political game and ask things of our allies, we may even need to adjust our allies.
The naysayers will say that this is impossible. The UK can't recruit new players, the UK can't do more damage and no expansion route exists. If you want an easy life stop reading and go join a different party. Even better delete the bookmark to this game. Why are you even here?

How we get expansion
The easiest resource for us to get is French Rubber, take a look at your map. Also note the relative population rank and average levels of each country and ask if this is a sign of good or bad governance over the last few years:
It is in our national interest to be allied with Spain and USA, they are strong high ranked countries and can get their Rubber from other places. We can help them do so via MPP. Otherwise they are one region away from the only European Rubber.
After that we have a few possibilities but the easiest one is to pretty much keep the status quo and help a strong Poland annihilate France and be a buffer between Serbia and other countries in the east (luckily they are allied to the closest ones to France).
If Poland takes Aquitaine and we take a short corridor of land to Poitou, we have Rubber and one extra weapons resource and all the benefits that brings. If our diplomacy and alliance with Poland is as strong as we are told, then all we have to do is out damage France as a long term opponent and match their alliances with ones of our own.
We can't do this tomorrow or even next month, it will take time to develop our military to regularly beat France and better position alliances.
We CAN increase our weapons resources though. I have shown you one potential route, one dream for the UK. There are others and we can get there together.
