Is it possible to add GNP to countries stats ?

One of the ways that countries in the world are measured is by GNP (gross national product)

Basically its the wealth of the nation divided by the number of people in the country.

The average you get is a standard of how well off the citizens of that nation are.

I wanted to add a UN resolution to have a vote to add GNP. However such a proposal means a change in game mechanics. There would have to be some kind of economic measure that would be compared to population and an average given.

These all would have to be added in.

So would like to get some others thoughts are this before a proposal is made.

If you add game mechanics proposals, the moderators will delete the proposal and possibly ban you from the U.N. Don't do it.

Yeah, if you want to propose a change like this, the appropriate place to do so is in the Tech forum.

Edit: dude, that was my 1000th post. :?

Correct. This is not appropriate for a UN proposal.

Thanks

Was really a two part question

The first part was IF others wanted to see it added. That would be the resolution

The technical question of if it could be added was the seconded part.

No, not particularly. I bet I'm among the ~80% of this game who couldn't care less what their GNP is; and it doesn't really seem in keeping with the rest of the spotlight.

I think, for those so inclined, using the various off site calcs and stuff is sufficient.

FOR ALL WHO KNOW THIS NOT :

Well if you are at least interested in finding yours out then ...

In fact, in the Tech Forum, in the Big Tech Sticky or what-ever it is called, there is a link to a good GNP, or is it GDP, calculator which you can go to and fiddle with as it instructs to find out what your GNP/GDP is.

Wait on, digging up link now ...

Find it in here, big letters. Hard to miss. Enjoy. :)

( I plan to alter my image so when clicked instead of linking to my nation it will link to my GNP/GDP ... thing. :wink: )
