Weird nation rankings

08-01-2004, 01:03
An auspicious day for me.

Most Liberal Nations:

Spoffin just three positions below Spoffin the Liberal (9,946 9,643)

Spoffin the Ambassador: number 56,000 exactly

And three other puppets in the top 2000, Spoffin the Activist among them.

I remember that one time when Spoffin was my only nation, I got 7,777 on Biggest Gambling sector, a very strange and lucky coincidence.

Anyone else have anything like these?

I've had four of my puppets lined up in the ranks, one after the other. My newest oddity is the puppet I created and abandoned on the first day which is now 8th in the world for Most Liberal Nations.

I've also had four of my nations go together in the world rankings, and right next to them was another nation in the same region! :D

My higherst ranked puppet today (that I checked the ranking for) got 900-something-low :D (high PF = liberal, apperently)

Today, I noticed some major oddities within the world rankings of many nations in my region.

My main nation got rank 4601 while one of my puppets got rank 4600.
Two other nations in my region got ranks 6179 and 6180.
Three more nations got ranks 8257, 8258, and 8259.
Four more got ranks 55138, 55139, 55140, and 55141.
Two others got ranks 65892 and 65893.
I was the only one with more than one nation in a single one of these "groups," and those nations were by themselves.

All this does not happen much in a region of 30 nations, especially combined together on one day. However, that all did happen to my region today despite all odds.

Any comments to that? :D

Though the UN is not aware of it, Maomarxland leads the world in executions of those who oppose the government.

Nicest Kept something or other... like some stupid environmental thing. Everything I do in my nation is to destroy the natural environment. I was ranked in the top 1000 for nicest environments. How queer... :?

I got some of my nations lined up in the Nicest Citizens ranking, and now in the Largest Soda Pop Sector ranking. It's weird. They are over 1bn in population and were created within a few days of each other, so maybe that has something to do with it. The smaller puppets are scattered through the rankings at random.

I had a puppet in a region where, for a couple of rankings, all the nations were lined up.

I had for the Liberalness rankings puppets on every page for quite a while down, except 1 & 5, IIRC.

World rankings produced pairings in my region once again.

Two nations got ranks 7980 and 7981.
Three more got ranks 11127, 11128, and 11129.
Two others got ranks 42941 and 42942.
Two more got ranks 56310 and 56311.
Four others got ranks 72432, 72433, 72434, and 72435.
Two more got ranks 83774 and 83775.
Two others got ranks 97467 and 97468.
Two more got ranks 105105 and 105106.

I'm starting to think that the UN polls have a small number of levels of each thing, and that it sorts each level by region.
