New Citizen Help;The Basics

Day 539, 09:02 Published in Ireland Ireland by binksy


As the Minister of New Citizens, I will be writing a series of articles explaining how to play, and make the most of eRepublik. This article will cover the basics to playing eRepublik.

eRepublik is based on four different career paths. These are Politics, Media, Military and Economics. In the following articles, I will explain how to succeed in each of these paths.

Not all activites can be completed immediately. These are the activities that you can complete on your first day:

Uploading an avatar: This might seem unimportant, but it gains you your first few experience points. And avatar is good for expressing your interests or individuality to other citizens.

Getting a job: Jobs are very important to function as a citizen in eRepublik. The government of eIreland has provided State companies for new citizens to work at. Job offers are found at Job Market under the Market tab. The State jobs are set for Skill 0 workers. You may work at these until you are skilled enough to work in the private sector.

Working: Your current job is found at Company under the My Places tab. Employers pay you using the national currency, which is IEP in eIreland. Working also gives you one experience point every day.

Training: You should now be able to train at the Army. Training raises your Strength. Strength is a factor that affects your Force. Force comes into play when you're fighting in a war. Training also gains you one experience point each day. The Army is found under the My Places tab.

Eating: Eating occurs automatically, as long as you have food in your inventory. You can buy food at the Market. Eating also gains you an experience point.

With a few clicks every day, you gain three experience points. In the next article, I shall explain Wellness and Experience.

If anyone has any questions, problems or suggestions, they can be PMed to me. Anyone who hasn't should join the eIrish forums at
The Wiki pages are a valuable source of information for all citizens, so consult these for an explaination on anything eRepublik related.

Best regards,
binksy, Minister of New Citizens.
