Jumping from one battle to the next!
According to this article in the NBoJ newspaper, the National Bank of Japan indicates the following expenses:"270 gold spent on tanks, -337 gold spent on DoW on eSK, -51 gold for attacking eSK regions" NOTE: last number has not yet been updated to include several battles after publication.
The eJapanese military performed well, as expected against a numerically inferior and less-organized enemy. The NBoJ donation list is quote confusing, and presumably the org was used to distribute weapons as well as gold for tanking (a departure from past practice). Hopefully the Ministry of Defense will release an itemized report soon explaining the donations, particularly the large amounts of gold/JPY donated to the following citizens & organizations:
-jankems (eUSA tank) (received 80 gold)
-Paradiziac (eUSA tank) (received 80 gold)
-Lucius Varenus (eUSA tank) (received 80 gold, returned 50 gold)
-Dragonforce Imperial (various amounts of gold & JPY)
(NOTE: Numbers are probably not entirely accurate; please wait for the official report before tossing around criticism)
How to help after the war
Integration of eSK citizens
There is currently a discussion about how to best integrate the eSK community, available here:
Personally, I hope that the core eSK community will stay together, rather than disperse to the four corners of the New World. I would even support funding a special auxiliary unit of eSK citizen-soldiers so they could remain a coherent unit for the future foundation of an independent eSK.
