We are happy to announce the official launch of the Plato Foundation Project!
Starting today you can submit your projects on the dedicated Discord channel. The first recipients of sponsorships and grants will be announced on Tuesday, August 15th (Day 3,556), with lists coming out weekly for the duration of the Project.
You can revisit the rules and requirements for projects on the eRepublik Forum, keeping in mind that they might still be altered in the future to better fit the Foundation’s goals. This being said, you can share any other inquiries or suggestions in the same place.
On another note, we want to remind you about the importance of having a secure password for your eRepublik account. Due to recent concerns, we strongly advise you to update your password.
Sharing the same password on various services makes your accounts vulnerable to credential stuffing attacks.
You can check if your email was part of a security breach here.

As you know, Plato likes to support the Citizen’s efforts of building the community and likes to reward all those who walk the extra mile to make The New World a better place. This is why he came up with the idea of a Foundation which will encourage these initiatives.
However, because he wants to do this for the community and wants to do it right, he needs your help. The plans are all laid down on paper, but nothing is set in stone. Thus, we invite you to go over them and leave your input.
Whether it’s suggestions, proposals for members, questions or feedback, we’d love to hear it all.
Let us know what you think of it on the eRepublik Forum
As you might have noticed, we made some tweaks and improvements to the news feed, in order to make it more user-friendly:
- Country leaders can now post official announcements or start debates in the dedicated country feed.
- Party Presidents and Military Unit Commanders can now remove posts they consider unfit for their feeds.
- The posts on achievements have been compressed for a better view. However, you can still see the details if you want to.
- Unread messages on Feeds are marked so that you can catch up with them whenever you log in.
- Moreover, you can now obtain the link of a post much easier and share it with your friends!
We hope you enjoy the new feed layout and its upgrades! Let us know what you think of it on the eRepublik Forum.
Whether it's in a metropolis or a small town, there's no place like home. Thus, we are glad to introduce the newest update of the New World - eRepublik Cities! While they have existed since the beginning of times, they will now get new roles.
A man's home is his castle... in a manor of speaking. Starting Day 3,468, you can set your Residence in one of the towns and cities for some exciting bonuses!
But before we cut the ribbon, let us explain how Cities work. If you like the thought of establishing your residence in a city, good news! You will be able to benefit from better houses both in terms of house durability, energy pool size and energy recovery for the time period you spend in that city.
The residents will benefit from increased energy recovery speed and the extra energy pool as long as they stay in the city of residence, according to the chart below.
Choose your residence wisely - when traveling away from the city of residence, the recoverable energy bonus is not available and the extra energy pool is only active for 30 minutes from the moment of departure.
Once a citizen becomes a resident of a city, they can no longer turn back to their “nomad” status. The houses they have active in the cities will benefit of the durability bonus. The houses usage of a resident citizen will no longer have the option to be paused.
The cities are grouped in 5 tiers based on the number of citizens who are residents of the city. Their size not only influences the values of residential tax and the property tax but it also affects the durability bonus of the inhabited houses in the city as per the table below.
Establishing a residence
In order to establish a residence in a city, a citizen needs to travel to the city, apply for a residential permit and pay the one time residential tax and the prorata property tax (if they have active houses).
The residential permit is approved automatically and the active houses will be transferred to the new city if the citizen can pay the above taxes.
The municipality can levy taxes to fund the city budget
The residential tax - depends of the size of the city and is collected when a citizen establishes their residence in a city
The property tax - is collected for each house based on its global market price and the actual (remaining) durability of the house. It is paid when a citizen moves in a house in their resident city. While the property tax will initially have an universal value, in the future it will be set by the mayor and the city council.
The city budget is founded by the currency collected from the local taxes and a subsidy from the taxes collected at the government level.
The current subsidy is 10% of the country income and divided equally between all the cities of the country. In the future the congress will be able to increase the value of the subsidy
The mayor and city council are the ones who decide on how to use the money in the local budget.
The cities are grouped in 5 tiers, based on the number of residents each city has. The values of the residential tax and the property tax, as well as the durability bonus of the inhabited houses will vary from one tier to another.
The local elections module will be added as the next step in the following weeks.
Make sure to go over the Cities Tutorial to gain a better understanding of the mechanics and the new features. And, of course, if you have any other questions on the subject or you wish to share some feedback with us, you can visit the Forum.

Plato might be old, but he still likes to keep up with all the latest trends and stay connected, which is why eRepublik now has its own Discord Server.
What is Discord? Discord is a free voice and text chat app designed specifically for gaming (read more about it here).
Join Plato, Lana and the rest of the eRepublik Team as well as our Partners now (we hope to keep the Headless Chicken out of it): Take me there!
Part of the community has already embraced Discord, here are some of the eRepublik related servers
Japan (not sanctioned by eJapan's current government)
Republic of Macedonia (FYROM)

Please keep in mind that the new Server will NOT function as a support platform and as such, any game support requests must go through the ticketing system.
You will need a Discord account with a verified email to be able to chat with other users in the server.
We hope to see you there!

On this April Fool’s day it seems that the joke was all on Plato! The Headless Chicken pulled a prank on him, making our code go bananas.
Plato might be lots of things but he’s not that much of a grinch on your expense so he will add 1500 Energy in the Energy pool, as well as the Boosters which have been used.
We wish you lots of fun on this April Fool’s day, we will be busy crying.
Fed up about all those old players parading their huge strength? Disappointed to see your Battle Hero medal go up in smoke because your hits cannot match others? Angry for not being able to fight back ? Well, today the joke is on them.
For April Fool’s Day (Day 3,420), you can switch strength with another Citizen for two hours and then go to town with it!
To do this, just go on a someone’s profile and select "Switch Strength." If they will accept it, the strength will be switched for the next two hours. We hope that strong Citizens will also have fun reliving the days of the past, or play Grinch and rent their precious strength.
The 2 hours are counted from the moment the request is sent and April Fool’s strength is not taken into account for setting a Division Max Hit.
In order to celebrate this day properly, Plato is increasing temporarily the value of the True Patriot medal. With each medal earned you will get 20 bazookas instead of the 1000 currency. That’s around 60% more!
