Why is the hit limit?

If you can hit 2000 hits a day then you spend way too much time looking and refreshing a screen. To answer your question, it's to reduce stress on the server. A rule designed when over 30000 people played the game. I'd imagine it's stayed the same to allow for a smaller server.

I've only ever hit it a couple of times and server reset wasn't far away, 2k clicks is rule is fine but on the other hand the 200 message limit comes into play far more often.

The hit limit and message limit was added because of me in late 2006 and early 2007 along with a change in the TOS.  You can search the red senate debates for more back story.

Back then most of the major alliances had departments dedicated to collecting game statistics.  There was no option to download statistics like there is today.

The departments would have their members click through the war, foreign aid, alliance stats, and other nation statistic pages and pull all the info from each page.  This would result in thousands of clicks and tax the CN servers.  To stop the practice, admin created the nation statistic download links and also added the click limit.
