1st World Citizen Competition (200 GOLD prize)

Day 922, 20:40 Published in USA Canada by Buck Roger

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.

Some rules:

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!

Mission: Improbable.

sonofup1 Day 922, 20:50

Lol, just a couple of notes here:

1. Don't try to get USA citizenship unless you know a Congressman personally and he or she vouches for you; the process of getting USA citizenship is typically a long one, so it'll slow up your travels if you apply for USA citizenship.

2. Don't leave USA and expect to get your USA citizenship back quickly unless you know a Congressman personally or mail me before you get foreign citizenship so that I can check your profile and verify that you were, in fact, a previous holder of USA citizenship before this competition began.

THAT SAID, however, USA Congressmen have plenty of citizenship approvals to use, and most months we don't even use them all, so as long as you establish with a current, sitting Congressman or myself beforehand that you're a legal holder of USA citizenship before this competition begins, you should have no problems getting your USA citizenship back once it's over.

NOTE: a screenshot of your profile with USA citizenship will not be accepted as amble proof of your identity. Either myself or a Congressman needs to see it for him/herself before you get foreign citizenship.

Buck, feel free to update your original post with this, if you want.

New eAmerican players: Immigration is SERIOUS business in the eUS.

READ Astra's post above if you plan to do this. This could really put a damper on your day/elife if you don't.

@Longbaugh I know how he got 136 Society Builder Medals, but because I like Buck (and don't want to ruin anything for him) I'm not going to give up his secret 😉

Really cool competition. I was hoping by now they'd have added a passport feature to show all the countries someone had visited/obtained citizenship in, and then a medal for those who had obtained citizenship in every country (it was suggested by zoli or someone some 6-months ago), but obviously that's asking a little much.

Way to take the initiative and do this Buck Roger.

Wow, way to go. Need stamps...need stamps 🙂

Buck, do you believe that the mission at hand, is even close to possible for an average player??? Who would spent about 30 gold in tickets , and still , not be certain if you will pay out the price of the task (if ever accomblished) due to the lack of a sigle screenshot????
Its awild goose chase, not a competition!

LanselotGiannis Day 923, 01:09


RevengerDE Day 923, 02:07

its really difficult 🙂

You have to write the reason in order to have the application approved.And its really very very difficult to pass through Phoenix countries while you are EDEN.
Good Luck.

Dude, screenshots can be easily faked, by, e.g., using firebug. I could "create" 60 citizenships in about 10 min. So forget about it, know what I mean?

Neits Day 923, 03:46

Lord Marlock, you would need to somehow convince one congressman from each country to vouch for, that is the difficult part.

I bet if anyone does it, It'll be someone insanely rich who spends RL money on the game, and can afford to bribe congreemen 😕 GL to them though!
