Election Data Around the eWorld

14 - Published in Portugal - Political debates and analysis - 14 days ago

Greetings, folks!

We had a global presidential election this February. I did some calculations over the result to see the status of active community. The results are not surprising, but they show that many countries are dead - but some positive surprises, as a few countries with candidates where I expected none. Let`s see the data now.

We have a total of 76 countries. From these 76, a total of 21 countries had no candidate (including important countries as Canada and Republic of Macedonia, although the latter already impeached admin to choose a President by Congress). On other hand, only 16 countries (about 20%) had more than one candidate - in other words, elections were not competitive for the majority of nations here. Only 2 countries (Bosnia-Herzegovina and Portugal) presented 3 options in the ballot. This in my opinion reflects both the not-so-lively status of this game and the nature of nations here, which resemble more MMO guilds than RL nations with their complex political and economic structure - after all, in these e-something games, everything revolves around wars...

Percentage of countries by number of presidential candidates´╗┐

Number of candidates for each country

About the total number of votes, only 5 countries had 50 votes or more: Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Greece and Hungary. Only 24 countries had more than 10 votes in this election (Portugal had the 14th higher number of votes, with 26), and from the 55 countries with at least one candidate, in 12 the number of voters was equal or lower than the number of candidates - including three countries with two options (Belarus, Belgium and Israel). Lastly, we had three countries where even with candidates there was no vote - India, Malaysia and South Africa. So, even the candidate did not voted for himself in these countries...

So, as you can see, the game is not dead - but it is far from lively, specially in small communities. But that is nothing we already do not know...

That is all for now, my little friends! Smell you later!

I hope I meet my future eHusband here. Im really lonely if you take away my pets and its been years since my RL boyfriend left me. He ducked me hard every night for 3 years. He was 1.98 m tall and weighed 90kg. Since he left, Ruana, Carmelita, Nicoletta and Leeloo are taking care of me. I went into depression too but took up stitching and cooking to distract me. The situation in La Plata is bleak for me as they say I may lose one of my jobs as a professor in the university due to a change in policies. I really need some income in order to spend on games like these and feed my pets. I also sterilised all my pets so that none of them would have puppies or kittens nor do I want n unwanted baby. I am a Baptist christian in RL and love spending my free time to serve the lord. We also have many church activities in the afternoons. All this makes me titled as I m getting older and I find it difficult to stay awake at nights to message potential lovers or indulge myself. Let me tell you something about myself. I m Carmen Fernandez and I am a musician and professor. You may have heard some of my songs which I upload from time to time. I am a chubby plus size woman, fair skin, short hair, blue eyes, freckles and D cups!!! Wink Kiss I like playing games like erev so that I meet new people from across the world and indulge them in my fantasies. So far I have met and loved many people like yanisin, bordo, batranul, marius and am currently eMarried to efiljo on the OTHER game Wink That doesn t mean I can t eMarry some lucky man here who will keep me happy and also give me 69 Wink Kiss The qualities I look for in my man are smart, charming, good humour, he should make me laugh and Laos listen to my daily stories. He should adore my pets and finally make love to me and pleasure me as I am DTF all the time. I use my phone in one hand and my other hand is on my V WinkKiss If any of you out there wants a chance with me please do not hesitate and come forward. I am searching and waiting for You
@Cloro, South Brazil is near enough La Plata xD
Nice work, como siempre! Wink
Is clear that THE POLITICAL PART of the Game is NOT WELL DEVELOPED. The game would much more interesting if some new ideas were implemented in politics. POLITICS is the way that the players could socialize and create COMMUNITIES. The actual implementation is POOR and has NO SENSE, penalizing totally the Game.
@Kromion, I agree, these kinds of games are no more about politics, but simply a guild war where the guild has the same name of a RL country... Social aspects should be improved in many ways too (including ways other games like this one already did)
First nice article i like to see more colourful charts. Second can someone ban this clorosh*t??
@St0L3n Dont call me sh*t :/
