Proposal: Continental Breakfast

Reached quorum 4 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Enact a new rule, “Continents”:-

Each Energy Minister represents a nation from a Continent, that Continent being tracked in the GNDT. An Energy Minister’s Continent may be Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, South America or Undefined, and defaults to Undefined. (An Undefined Continent may be tracked as “-” in the GNDT.) If an Energy Minister’s Continent is not Undefined, then they are considered to have a Seat at the UN.

An Energy Minister without a Seat at the UN may set their Continent to any valid value other than “Undefined”, at any time.

Replace “An EM with an unset Industrial Output may set it at any time to a value of their choice between 10 and 40, inclusive.” in “Industry” with:-

An unset Industrial Output has a value of zero.

The Average Output of a Continent is the arithmetical mean (rounding down) of the Industrial Output of every Energy Minister who represents a nation from that Continent, or zero if no Energy Ministers represent nations from it.

An Energy Minister with a Seat at the UN who has an unset Industrial Output may at any time set it to any value within 10 of their Continent’s Average Output, or to any value between 10 and 40 if their Continent’s Average Output is zero.

Do you mean that real-world continents seem too complicated? Or that we should use complicated fictional continents instead?

No, lol, I just mean it’s a long-ish rules addition just to set up teams.

for Actually, sure, long rules are better than vaguely written ones with the same conceptual content. And I can just write “a Continent’s ministers” can’t I? Vs “the set of ministers who represent nations from a particular Continent”.
