Government Evaluation Survey



The Cerb Administration would like to know how well they have performed this month. The Survey below will allow you to give your thoughts on the performance of our President, Vice President, and the various Departments within the government. We ask that you devote a bit of your time to evaluate our performance and give us some of your thoughts. We'd like to have a better government for the remainder of this term and hopefully pass some things on to the next administration. If you would like to give the government some feedback (And we urge you to do so), please fill out the survey. Your participation is appreciated.

Department Update: National Security Council
Secretary of Media NewAzazel

You might ask yourself who prioritizes the battles each day, and who directs all of our armed forces in one direction or the other. This is the job of the National Security Council. The main job of the NSC involves prioritizing battles, and coordinating damage between the USAF, militias and our foreign allies. The overall goal of the NSC this term, as it is every term, is to ensure successful American military dominance, as well protecting our allies’ interests abroad. This means that the NSC is responsible for ensuring all of our different MUs are fighting towards the same cause and the same fight.


Jason Statham Jr. getting in the middle of the fight.

The head of the Council this month is Jason Statham Jr., working for the first time in an official capacity for the eUS government. While he’s new to the scene, he works hard to ensure he gains the respect of all our military unit leaders so they trust his decision making. Being NSC director isn’t necessarily enjoyable work, but Jason Statham Jr. accepts the challenge and works hard to ensure the job gets done. He also has his deputies to assist him in watching current priorities and channeling influence to the correct spot in the event of his absence.

The NSC works hard to ensure we win the right battles for ourselves, and assist our allies in the best way that we can. The NSC can further be improved if more groups were willing to participate and partner with the government in their focus and endeavors. Sending damage to unimportant battles or on personal goals hurts the eUS and its allies. Each individual’s damage is important to the battle, and one person could be the one to change the balance of the battle. By partnering with the NSC, and in-effect our government, you can ensure your MU is directing itself to the right cause.

When asked if he had any other thoughts, Jason Statham Jr. had a straightforward answer.

Fight smart and God bless the eUSA – NSC Director Jason Statham Jr.



War Map & Analysis
Press Corps Staff Writer Hale26


A visual representation of what the next few days will look like. A purplish arrow indicates a failed attack.

As you may have noticed, we have declared war on Mexico.
Before we go anywhere though, we must make it clear that this is a Training war. We will NOT be taking ANY of Mexico's bonuses or land. America will remain a 50 state union with 5 bonuses.

Here is a link to the agreement between the eUS and eMexico regarding the training war

Moving onto our second matter, many are fairly confused as to why we were fighting against ourselves.

Firstly, fighting against yourself is a common tactic in war. For example- FYROM fought against itself repeatedly so as to escape from the onslaught we would have given them back in our last war. In this case, however, we are fighting against ourselves to re-sign the Brazilian MPP we lost when the Baja attack was initiated. To break it down..

*Mexico has an MPP with Brazil.
*America has an MPP with Brazil.
*America attacks Mexico. Because of game mechanics, we LOST our MPP with our bromantic country Brazil.
*Mexico still has an MPP Brazil
*We can only re-sign our MPP when Mexico has the initiative. Mexico can only have the initiative if they win the Baja battle.
*We lose Baja, and resign the MPP before Mexico attacks. Since Mexico is the aggressor, THEY lost their MPP with Brazil.

MPPs aside, we are not planning to take a single Mexican territory (as mentioned above.) That being said, we encourage all of you to get your TP points and missions off this war. War, unlike in real life, is a necessity in-game. Don't be shy about fighting.

That being said, our priorities will not be on the Mexican war. As stated before, America firmly support all allies (Argentina, Greece, Brazil..etc.) in their respective campaigns. We will continue to fight side by side with all 3 fore-mentioned countries and assist them in their own battles.



DHS Results and Reporting



"From October 25 to November 5 to November 15, we notice that the AFA considerably under-performed in potential PTO votes. Potential votes is measured by total CS approvals possible, and doesn't even include the number of multi's they could have made to help. This under-performance tells us that despite the AFA's aggressive newb recruitment and spammy shout campaigns, they are unable to convince very many people to come to the eUSA when we have bad economic bonuses, much worse than our enemies (Serbia is 9/10, Hungary is 8/10)

TLDR: The no-bonus plan is mitigating the PTO effect. They should have already PTO'd us by now."
- President Cerb

As you can see from these numbers, PTO votes have not been gaining support over the past few months while ATO votes have retained their strength. This proves that by denying bonuses, we are making our country less appealing to those who would like to come to our country and PTO us.

As always, be sure to report any suspicious activity you see to the DHS. Do not make reports based upon assumption, only upon evidence and proof. We wish to make an eUS where unity elections are no longer needed and we no longer have the threat of being PTOed.




Ambassador Recruitment



As you know, foreign affairs are crucial to the success of the eUnited States. We are a powerful nation on our own, but without allies like Brazil, Russia, Argentina, China, etc etc, we would be overrun. These relationships are more crucial to the United States than ever before. So how can you as a citizen of the eUS get involved? There are still several vacancies left in our ambassador program, and you could become that missing link between the eUS and our next ally.

As our Secretary of State, Israel Stevens, says: "Apply to be an ambassador! See the world! Meet hot chicks!"

@RGR

Actually, not really. Statistically speaking, the last election fits with all the others...

An American patriot won, just as they have for the last 30 elections. However, if your party won, it would have been an outlying election as you say, but alas the American patriots are still a bit too strong or you.

Okay Mrs. ONE.... you are not an American....

Our people fought, bled, struggled, and died to throw off your oppressive empire in TWO different wars.

USA! USA! USA!

Um...

1. I'm very much an American, and an American citizen at that. You'd do well to remember that there are loyal Americans beyond your cult following.

2. What two wars have you fought against America?

the Continental Army? seriously?

I guess I get it, most cult leaders tend to think of themselves in grandiose terms. Hell, David Koresh thought he was Jesus, the savior of the nation and world.............wait a minute, this is starting to sound familiar!

Conspiracy Theory alert! Call Jesse Ventura!! Koresh secretly survived the fire and is now playing the game as RGR!!!!!!!! Panic sets in!

"We wish to make an eUS where unity elections are no longer needed and we no longer have the threat of being PTOed."

yeah, not gonna happen. Serbs and Huns are PTO'ed us for the lulz. AFA might have a problem in recruiting new members, but the PTO agent that already here wouldn't go just simply because we deny ourself an economic bonuses. if these people always leave a country with bad bonuses, RL New Zealanders will already have their e-country back.
