Welcome to the Game
The first image when you become a citizen of eRepublik is the homepage, we see how well it is structured, here is a detailed procedure (with pictures) of what you'll find on the home page:
If you do not have any food in your inventory, the Eat Food button will change into a Buy Food button which links you to the marketplace.
Types of Food
There are seven varying qualities of food, with higher quality food having a higher star rating. Each increase in the quality of food increases the potential amount of energy restored by intervals of two. Thus, quality one (represented by one star) food restores two energy while a quality six food restores twelve energy. And while higher quality food may restore higher energy, the best type of food to buy is the one that gives you the most energy for your money. A player is only limited by the amount of energy they can recover in a set amount of time. Therefore, it is better to buy 100 units of Q1 food (200 energy) for $50 than it is to buy 20 units of Q5 food (also 200 energy) for $55, and so on.
How to Consume Food
You can only consume food by clicking the Eat Food button, which can be found in the sidebar of any eRepublik page, underneath Energy. After clicking this link, your energy will be restored as close to 100 energy as possible. First your citizen will eat the highest quality food in your storage. If the highest quality food will make your energy rise over 100, instead of the highest quality food the next highest food unit will be eaten. The energy values of the citizen will then increase the amount that is given to the food consumed. The information of energy will be automatically updated on the sidebar itself.
The amount of remaining energy which can be consumed will be displayed in the tooltip button.
Note2: There's also an Eat Food button on the battlefield which is completely the same way working as the one on the sidebar.
There are a few quick notes to be mentioned about food manufacturing:
- Food raw material is used to manufacture food.
- Regions that are connected to capital and have either grain, deer, cattle, fish or fruits give food companies a +20% production bonus per resource.
- Production bonuses, however, do increase the amount of raw materials needed to get the job done.
- Higher quality food requires more food raw material to manufacture.
Further Information on Food Manufacturing
The effectiveness of food depend on their quality. The higher quality of food the more wellness it will restore and it will take less storage place.:
Each training facility has different kind of effects to your training.
To work, you can apply for a job in the job market, then go to My places and press "Work". With this you can gain a salary. In addition to working for others, you can make extra money by working for yourself, in whatever companies you own. You can work by visiting My places, there you could select your companies and produce in every company with clicking to "Start produce".
You could work once a day in every company of yours, and once as an employee. You will lose 10 energy working at each company. With every single work in a company you could gain 2 experience points which could help you to reach the next level faster. When you work in you own food/weapon company (as a manager), you need to have enough raw materials to make the products. If you have raw companies too, you could work in each company at the same time, because the raws will be added before you use them for the products. If you don't have enough raw you could buy from market.
What happens after you work?
- You will see the final results of your productivity, as well as a message with more detailed information:
Why do we work?
Some citizens work for their own individual gain. They get paid a salary and give their bosses materials or products which they may use to make other products, or sell for profit. However, other citizens work towards a larger goal. For example, in military units soldiers may be asked or even required to work for minimum wage. In return, they get regular supplies (such as tanks and food), free of charge. Doing so is often more efficient than soldiers supplying themselves. Some might also only work to gain a Hard Worker medal every 30 days.
Fighting is a process that can be done by any citizen account from the battlefield. Battle in which you can fight can be easily chosen from Homepage where every citizen has the list of battles in which his/her country is involved. Remember to check if your country has some battle orders for citizens.
Citizens can fight if:
- they are level or more;
- their energy is over 9;
- they are in one of participating countries.
If you want, you can also buy some weapons to increase your influence in the war.
When you arrive to the battlefield, you will see this kind of an interface.
Fighting itself is simple: you just need to hit the fight button. Every time the fight button is clicked:
- you will lose 10 points of energy;
- your weapon's durability will decrease by one;
- you will deal damage to your opponent.
Once your enemy is dead:
- your influence is added to the battle;
- you get experience points (1 / hit needed to kill the enemy);
- you will get rank points (10% of your influence).
You will see a pop-up that tells you the effects of your fight. You can continue fighting by clicking "Add influence"-button.
Weapons are used by citizens in the battles. Weapons can more than double the amount of damage made in battles.
- Weapon raw material is used to produce weapons.
- If the country owns a region that's connected to capital with aluminum, iron, saltpeter, oil or rubber, every company in that country will get +20% production bonus per resource.
The effectiveness of weapons in combat depend on their quality. The higher quality weapons will most often perform much better than lower quality ones.
A weapon's quality level determines two characteristics: durability and firepower:
- Q1: 1 Durability, 20 Firepower
- Q2: 2 Durability, 40 Firepower
- Q3: 3 Durability, 60 Firepower
- Q4: 4 Durability, 80 Firepower
- Q5: 5 Durability, 100 Firepower
- Q6: 6 Durability, 120 Firepower
- Q7: 10 Durability, 200 Firepower
A weapons durability determines how many times it may be reused before having to be disposed of. For example, a Q1 handgun can only be used once, while a single Q6 super-tank can be used to attack six times. On the other hand, a weapon's firepower determines how much damage it can inflict. On the battlefield this translates into how quickly an opponent can be taken down, and how much influence is added to one's side.
- Bazooka: 3 Durability, Defeat the enemy with 1 hit, and take 10,000 damage per hit
- Nukes are 1 hit weapons that can be used in battle to deal 5,000,000 instant damage!
- They could be obtained after winning a Campaign Hero medal before day 1659
- Rockets are 1 hit weapons that can be used in battle to deal 1,000,000 instant damage!
- They could be obtained after winning a Battle hero medal before day 1659

Citizens with level and above (or are below level and have purchased gold - not including Gold Offers) are also able to exchange Gold for their national currency. They can do this action by accessing the Market tab in the main menu and then the Monetary market button.

Visit again the monetary market to post a new offer. ".
Speculation in the Market
Speculation on the Monetary Market is a method used to increase earnings beyond that which can be obtained through working every day. It is inherently risky so should not be attempted until a thorough understanding of the market is obtained.
The Job Market screen displays the available jobs for your country.
Get a job - Just like in real life, your survival depends on your ability to buy the resources that are necessary for living in this world. It is the most important thing for you to do when you first start off.
In order to get a job, you have to press the 'Apply' button.

- the company hasn't got the necessary amount of money in the accounts to pay your salary;
- the company has 0 Raw Materials in stock.
When you are hired, the Company Manager cannot lower your salary for 3 days.
If you're not a political science major, choosing a party might be hard based on only the descriptions on a party page. Deciphering between what it means to be center-right vs far-left and authoritarian vs libertarian maybe a challenge.
Also known as Left-right political spectrum is a common way of classifying political positions, political ideologies, or political parties along a one-dimensional political spectrum. "The Left" and "The Right" are usually understood to represent polar opposites for each determinant, though a particular individual or party may take a "left" stance on one matter and a "right" stance on another.
Far-Left and Far-Right
Differences between Far-Left and Far-Right: Far-Left: more economic interventionism; workers' self-management; Equality of outcome; progressivism; secular government; law dictates culture; human nature and society are mostly malleable. Far-Right: more laissez-faire; right to work; Equality of opportunity; conservatism; religious government; culture dictates law; human nature and society are mostly fixed.
- Far-Left - Radical
- Center-Left - Liberal
- Center - 1/2 Liberal 1/2 Conservative
- Center-Right - Conservative
- Far-Right - Reactionary
A political system, is a system of politics and government. It is usually compared to the law system, economic system, cultural system, and other social systems. It is different from them, and can be generally defined on a spectrum from left to the right. However, this is a very simplified view of a much more complex system of categories involving i.e. the view on who will have the authority, the view of religious questions and the government's influence on its people and economy.
- Totalitarian: Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a concept used to describe political systems whereby a state regulates nearly every aspect of public and private life. Totalitarian regimes or movements maintain themselves in political power by means of an official all-embracing ideology and propaganda disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, a single party that controls the state, personality cults, control over the economy, regulation and restriction of free discussion and criticism, the use of mass surveillance, and widespread use of terror tactics.
- Authoritarian: Authoritarianism describes a form of government characterized by an emphasis on the authority of the state in a republic or union. It is a political system controlled by non elected rulers who usually permit some degree of individual freedom.
- Libertarian: Libertarianism is a term used by a spectrum of political philosophies which seek to promote individual liberty and seek to minimize or even abolish the state. The extent to which government may be necessary may be evaluated on ethical and/or economic grounds. "What it means to be a libertarian in a political sense is a contentious issue, especially among libertarians themselves. There is no single theory that can be reliably identified as the libertarian theory, and no single principle or set of principles on which all libertarians would agree."
- Anarchist: Anarchism is a political philosophy encompassing theories and attitudes which support the elimination of all forms of compulsory government. Specific anarchists may have additional criteria for what constitutes anarchism, and they often disagree with each other on what these criteria are. According to The Oxford Companion to Philosophy, "there is no single defining position that all anarchists hold, and those considered anarchists at best share a certain family resemblance."

The media is pretty simple is eRepublik. It's the only "free" commodity in eRepublik, and because of this you can not gain money simply by posting articles.
Starting a Newspaper
For starters, we suggest that you read the media section in eRepublik first before starting your own paper. This is so you can see what type of articles already exist. We try to keep to on-topic subjects, but since we have freedom of speech you can write about anything you choose to.
First, name your paper. If your looking for people to read it, I would find a title that is catchy but that also pertains to what you are going to be covering (ie General News, local news, specific subjects, Off topic, etc).
Second, here are some basic guidelines that some of the other players in eRepublik would suggest:
- Try to stay on topic if possible. If you want to write OT, then feel free so long as it is well written, thought out, and doesn't spam the media section.
- Don't write more than 1, maybe two articles a day so you aren't pushing other people off the media page.
- If you are going to post videos, links, etc please make sure they are non-offensive. Posting offensive ones could result in a ban from the admin if someone reports you.
- Language: Try to post in correct, non-offensive grammar and content. Posting rude comments even in slang can also result in ban, and if you are more comfortable in another language you'll probably want to let people know that. Not saying you can't write any way you want, just trying to save you the hassle of other players posting about your language as it may seem offensive to you.
Manage Your Newspaper
You can access your newspaper from your profile. You can see the logo, Press director and a link to its wiki page.
- Articles will be listed with the most recent first. Notice that you can edit or delete an article from this page. Published articles will be visible on the News page.

- If a citizen's newspaper reaches 1000 subscribers, he or she will earn the Media Mogul Achievement and 5 GOLD as reward. If someone that has been invited gains a reward through this process, then the person that invited them receives 0.5 GOLD. This amount is collectable by selecting Collect Gold on the Gold Page.. (Note: this is not available for newspapers owned by organizations).
- With the exception of the Media Mogul award, money can not be earned directly via publication. You can, however, sell items, promote your political agenda, and offer general commentary via your paper.
