Open Opportunity Party of South Africa

Exclusion is part of what is destroying eRepublik. Not necessarily on the part of players—but the exclusionary practices being implemented into the game.

OOPS, Seeks to battle exclusiveness as much as possible with INCLUSIVENESS. It believe in an open opportunity society committed to ensuring that each citizen can exert a political, economic, and militaristic influence in the New World. Each citizen can and should have an impact and be able to have fun and have influence in our glorious South Africa and global community.

OOPS affirms its support for perhaps the most important cause of all: Grooming South Africa’s next generation for leadership. In an Open-Opportunity Society, each individual has the capacity to pursue their eRepublik dreams and aspirations.


Human development flourishes when individuals engage in cooperative, mutually respectful relations that can thrive only when excessive differences in status, power, and wealth are eliminated. According to leftists, a society without substantial equality will distort the development of not only deprived persons, but also those whose privileges undermine their motivation and sense of social responsibility. This suppression of human development, together with the resentment and conflict engendered by sharp class distinctions, will ultimately reduce the efficiency of the economy.


OOPS believes in an open opportunity society committed to ensuring that each citizen can exert a political, economic, and militaristic influence in the New World. Each citizen can and should have an impact and be able to have fun. Membership is OPEN to ALL
