Hi folks,
New to the game, and enjoying it very much.

I'm curious to know why only there are only three 'categories' (for lack of a better word) displayed on the nation's home page (Civil Rights, Economy, and Political Freedoms) plus the country's regional influence and UN category, when the game code obviously has more indicators of a country's condition and success.

I'd love to see, for instance, a word or an indicator about the state of each country's environment, health care coverage, religiosity, education, crime rate, approval rating, and so on. Especially given that every day or so, we get to see how we rank against other countries on these criteria. Much of this info is given in the write-up (which could be longer; I wouldn't mind); but the health of nations is more than just its civil rights, economy, and political freedoms. Is there any way of displaying more information about the state of the country?

We are always given information on crime rate, in the third paragraph of your nation page. The environment is also referred to usually, in the info about your national animal.

There's always the XML data for your nation.

The economic websites use this data to calculate a wide variety of further statistics.
