"It's a trap," the Zigûr answered mildly.
Of course, it was his trap, and although it wasn't perfect, it was the best he could manage on such short notice. He sighed at the fact he only had five tanks to ambush the enemy column with. The barbarian detachment was returning from the plunder of a small town on the outskirts of his little kingdom, and keen eyes had reported to him it's numbers and composition. One super-heavy escorted by a number of lesser tanks and artillery pieces. Pee
Alright, so for the general understanding...
The purpose of a functional alliance sovereign is to lift the AA above the state of nature
Developing civilization increases hard military assets like tech and warchests, but also the promotion of culture, membership count, economics, etc
Civilized alliances go to war to defend and advance their strategic interests (i.e. developing hegemonic standing, protecting allies, the "game of thrones" etc)
Rogue nations and AA
Note: This essay requires a basic understanding of the principles of civilization laid out in the Meaning of Freedom.
Back in 2016 I briefly suggested what could lead to a revival of moralism here:
"I do think that any rejuvenation of moralism won't be by that name or necessarily looking much like Dajobo's NpO or the Cult of Justicia, but will instead be a result of tired nations choosing for themselves alliances with stable and codified FA approaches."
Revolution requires Revolutionary Theory and Circumstance
"We are in the trenches. A great battle is raging to which we can all, in some capacity, play a part. Our most recent conflicts have been with us spearheading the assault against those that have wronged us or our allies. In this instance, we are the targets. Not since the July Revolution have we been subject to an existential defensive war. And for that, we must take heart." - Edward Graceford, during the First War on Terror
Libertarian Socialists and early Producerists meet, circa Spring 2014
The roots of Producerism began in early 2014, following the end of the Disorder War. Having been removed from my position as Hand in House Baratheon, I was free to devote my energy to ideological development. Forming the Revolutionary Order of Cybernations, I managed to pull together about 15 nation leaders ranging from both left and right on the ideological scale. Our discussions regarding Francoism and the state
"There are two kinds of people: those who contribute towards the Imperial Truth, and those who rebel against it."
Producerism is the Imperial Truth of our Imperium. It is developed from years of experience in this world, and ultimately has it's roots in the 2003 Revolution in which that other realm's feederites overthrew the exploitative foreign userites.
The first accurate analysis of this world was written by Vladimir in 2007, and can be viewed on our forum here: http://cn-snx.co.uk/inde
PRODUCERISM: A PRIMER FOR NEW NATIONS
For new nations in today's world, it is sometimes difficult to make heads or tails of being a nation-ruler. Being bombarded by dozens of recruitment messages, it is very easy to make an uninformed decision which can lead to disastrous consequences for your nation. These consequences can range from being dragged into meaningless wars, to going without strong nations to protect you in the <10,000 NS range, to unknowingly being exploited as a tec

(Disclaimer: this speech was made after consuming a few beers, and if an alliance leader doesn't occasionally drink beer while playing CN, they are failing at life)
((This speech is dedicated to Dajobo, who I found to be an inspiring leader and a great friend ever since I returned to CN in 2013. He is currently in the hospital and I ask that all others share my prayers for his swift healing. He has a warriors heart and I have no doubt that he will defeat his ailments in short ord
HISTORY OF THE 5 MONTH PLAN
During the First Imperium as a Founding Senator of Supernova X, it was my pleasure to write the first 5 month plan. This plan called for concrete goals of production that would hold the old ministries accountable for progress. These goals of production included increasing our nuclear deterrence, general military preparedness, membership recruitment, low-tier industrialization and aid slot usage improvement.
Unfortunately, although the p
