Detailed Description:

I know we have gone over this many times before about merging countries, however I still feel that it is not being seriously considered. We need to look at this from a different angle. Right now when you look at a SC planet, it's dotted with thousands of tiny little countries all roughly the exact same size, just different shapes. This is not realistic. Earth has it's Russian and Canadian sized nations as well as nations as small as Yemen or Portugal. I would like to suggest an interesting dynamic to this game which will allow nations to grow in size naturally, and slowly. I have suggested in the past that when a player owns a "slave" state they can overtime add some to their main country to increase it's size. The stipulations will include length of time of owning the slave state as well as other considerations such as averaging out the indexes. These are very reasonable conditions. I have slave countries that I have owned for over a year, not game year but real life year. I think this would be a fair benefit for players who have maintained ownership of these countries for such a long time. The argument that "empires don't last" falls flat and I can't consider it as a reason to not allow us to merge countries. If it truly is a matter of being near impossible to implement this for the game designers, I'll understand. But if it is possible, please be reasonable and consider this. This would add a great feature to this game that would add allot of intrigue. Vote yes to allow us to add countries together and to make the worlds appear real.

W3Creative reaction:

This option was considered several times before. It might add to the functionality on one hand but will institutionalize the differences between countries in a way that canot be undone. The game now runs for real years and it remains possible for new players to catch up. Having large countries will change all that.

In addition, inmplementing this option might block all other developments for a very long time and there are many many smaller features that are more important.

if the number of players will increase in the future, we might need to add a new world. We might then add a world with much larger countries and a much smaller number.

In the current game, you can conquer an entire region but managing it will be complex. This is exactly what we want it to be. It should not be easy to run a huge population in a large country easily. Havig extremely powerfull players that are beyond competition will do the game no good.
