National goals are goals set by the nation's President during the presidential elections. Goals are in three categories, society, economy, and military. Achieving a goal will earn the country a monument. National goals were announced to the community in an eRepublik Insider article on November 26 2009.
A temporary Goal is a goal set in the campaign editor but which has not been activated.
If a user sets a goal, then accesses another page, and then returns in the editor, the temporary goal will still be there.
A permanent goal is a temporary goal that has been activated, making it visible in the candidates list, party page, elections page
- If a certain mission (not type!) has been chosen in a confirmed Goal, it will not be displayed when making the selections for the other Goals
- exception, you can choose "conquer new regions" several times, but the country you select in one will not be available for a second goal
- because there is only one social mission, and only one economic mission , economic or social type can each be selected for only one of the goals
Activate Campaign - displayed only while the goals are NOT permanent
- if one sets a goal, it is considered temporary, until activate campaign is pressed, and then it becomes permanent, along with the other 2 goals
- all 3 goals must be set, otherwise pressing the activate campaign will just give a notice without changing the status of any goal
- the action of editing a goal edits only the goal "value", it does not change the goal's status, a temporary goal will remain temporary, and a permanent goal will remain permanent
Reset Campaign - is displayed instead of "Activate Campaign" after the goals have become permanent
Back to party - displayed all the time. Does not have any effect on the goals, just redirects the user to his party

Some of the monuments above hold special stories, this are their stories.
|“ If Plato could cover Aphrodite in a shell or waves it will be possible to have her as award for completing all goals. ”|
There was a debate over the iconic figure to be used in the concepts - the two options being the Egyptian Goddess Hathor and the Greek Goddess Aphrodite.
Considering that Plato was Greek, Aphrodite was the favorite of the discussion and the challenge was to overcome the fact that the Greek Goddess is known to be always presented nude. A possibility taken under consideration was to cover her in a shell or waves.
The 3 concepts started as:
- a small statue representing love elements;
- a medium statue representing Anteros - the brother of Eros;
- a large statue representing Eros.
The theme for March was "War".
The name of March comes from ancient Rome, when March was the first month of the year and named Martius after Mars, the Roman god of war.
In Rome, where the climate is Mediterranean, March is the first month of spring, a logical point for the beginning of the year as well as the start of the military campaign season.
Based on the above synopsis, the 3 concepts started as:
- an "arc de triomphe" with a chariot on top of it
- a statue of an ancient soldier;
- a column similar to "Colonna Traiana".
In many countries, 1st of May is May Day (International Workers' Day/Labour Day). The concept for the 3rd monument started as an "arc de triomphe" with a raw materials worker on top of it.
The month of May has been named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was identified with "Mother Earth" Gaia. The concept for the 2nd monument started as a statue of a lady covered in nature elements.
Also based on the May Day association, the concept for the 1st monument started as a hand holding a hammer.
