Introduction

Citizens of eRepublik constantly come up with new and interesting ideas that we never thought of or that we haven't yet been able to develop. Banks, lotteries and ministers have appeared in almost every country. Some were created by Presidents to help them rule the country, some by regular Citizens to place their mark on the New World.

Notwithstanding, new entities have to respect the eRepublik rules. The exception concerns the existing rule of one citizen = one real person. It is OK to administer your personal account and another organizational entity account as long as you abide by the SO Rules.

A SO account is created in the same way as a regular account.
When you create a SO it is NOT required to write a separate Contract for it. Posting a comment announcing the creation of the SO on forum was enough.

Additional explanations

  • As administrative expenses, you should buy food in order to keep the new account alive.
  • The accounts created by Presidents and representing country entities should contain within their name the word "National". The current Presidents can demand the login details of those accounts from the former Presidents and we will help, if needed, to make the transfer.
  • We strongly advise Presidents to start working on a set of rules (Constitutions) that should be voted on by the Citizens after a public debate. We will promote the voting of country constitutions and help that country, if necessary, to apply the law.

For paid law consultancy we recommend you contact Platonic or any other Citizen that has a judicial background.

  • Without a valid contract it is difficult for us to administer problems concerning your loans, game prizes, law contracts or any other agreements. Therefore: if you want to have a back-up, use the "Contracts" category.
  • These rules are provisional until the development of an alternative ruleset becomes necessary.
