The Legacy of President Roby Petric

While Petric's presidency was short lived, the US government saw massive overhaul and restructuring during it. He created a number of new departments, with the goal of employing as many players as possible to get them involved in the game.

He utilized the new USA forums to coordinate these new departments.

He created a Regional Development Department to help keep regional bonds alive in V1 when mayors were taken out. He resurrected the FBI and changed it up a little to hunt multis in the US and deal with repeats of situations like Operation Eagle Strike, and a CIA to gather information on foreign powers to be used by the president strategically, along with other departments.

All but the Department of Regional Development have been successful.

Roby Petric appointed a very bipartisan cabinet, and sought to include smaller sixth parties in government.


On the eve of V1, Roby announced on the forum that he would be quitting eRepublik, he declined to state the reasons at the time. Many people speculated that Roby was quitting because, as a Croatian, he was angry that Croatia was not created.

Later on, however, this proved to be wrong. A long explanation was sent to then Acting President ThisGenMedia was released, which basically stated that he was leaving because he disagreed with the way the admins were managing eRepublik and V1, and stated that "Although I believe it's the end of eR we all know." He was able to enter the V1 beta test about a week before the actual release, and was disappointed with the game.

He chose not to disclose this publicly because he didn't want his influence to ruin the public perception of V1 before it was released.

He transferred the password of the Federal Reserve to ThisGenMedia and briefed him on the monetary situation. He sent emails to the admins asking them to give TGM the presidency and to suspend his own account.

Days of Wrath

The Croatian army initiated action against Serbia on the initiative of the then former President of Croatia - Roby Petric. The reason for the war was the alleged attack on the president of Croatia - Split1700 - supposedly carried out by the members of the Serbian government. There is still some controversy over whether Serbian officials created multiple accounts and sent donations to Split1700 in an attempt to get him banned.

Croatia took over Serbia and took 5 of 7 regions without fighting. This action was known as Days of Wrath (Serbian: Дани гнева, Croatian: Dani Gnjeva).
