Could you periodically, say, once a week, update us on the economic status of the individual regions.

I will try to describe the directions of the regions once a week or so, more likely through analysis or stories than specific data, which probably won't come more often than once a month, simply because the regions don't act on enough to effect enough change to make a substantive difference that quickly

I know, but it would also be interesting to see how federal  policy affects certain regions.

That I will be sure to include in the analysis of federal policies from now on, especially when the stimulus funds begin rolling out.

I'm wondering how you came up with regional population numbers, because it isn't based on the real figures.

It is based on the populations of the regions as a proportion of the whole, which is derived from the US population total.

Well... 2 of the 4 most populous states are in the Southeast, and 4 of the top 10. Meanwhile the Midwest has nothing. You should look into updating that.

Most populous states does not have anything to do with total regional populations. The populations of the regions, as outlined by the SoFA are:

Mideast, Midwest = 25 (~18%)
Pacific, Northeast = 35 (~25%)
Southeast = 19 (~14%)

That is what the numbers are based on. I would agree that there are a number of ways I can do these numbers to make some regions bigger or smaller. This is how I chose to do it so as to more accurately represent Atlasia, rather than the US.

Okay that makes much more sense. thanks for clearing that up.

Canadian Bacon, the movie, is.

However, all the older forumnites should be laughing in their sleeves right now, as they were no doubt entirely aware that the slur of choice for "Russians" was "Russkies" (sp?) at the time, and so they should find it lulzworthy that you actually think it came from a movie.

I've posted the Midwest regional education numbers. I won't be doing every region in this way unless there are specific requests (I know Marokai wants the Pacific, so that will be the next one I work on). It will take some time to do each one.

In your requests, it would be greatly appreciated if you brought to my attention any legislation passed by the region pertaining to education (as Vepres did with the End to Standardization Act).

I'll request the same education numbers that you gave for the Mideast, as well.

I'm fairly certain I know of most of the Mideast's legislation on education (as I passed some of it), but if you could dig that up and post links in here that would be great.

Agreed.

Hopefully your tenure will set a standard that all future GMs will reach for so that when your time as GM has ended, we can continue this awesome flow of information.

BTW, how long do you think you'll remain in this post at the moment?

I never said it "came" from the movie, stupid. Tongue I was pointing out that it was in that movie which was made 14 years ago an so it predates his group of friends. You read too much into what I said.

I thank you all for the kind words. And I have no plans to leave this office for a good while Vepres. I'm not eyeing October or anything, so you are stuck with me here for a while.
