Me, I think a "real country" is one that is successful at the game, and that means a country that consistently [...] gets to play for free as often as is available.

Hmmm. I wonder how many months BK can play for free, even despite not being able to win awards in consecutive months. Wait a minute, he told me he could play for a few RL years if he never got another GC. I think that is quite successful, even according to your definition.

As far as invincible defenses, you could have easily built one up. Even if BK could have cracked what you should have had built up, he probably would have not given it the effort. Consider that ammunition costs nothing to upkeep, and that once you have enough weapons, all you need to maintain invincibility is ammo. Defense fires first, which means if you had a large enough defense, you could have slaughtered 10k (the WG attack limit) of anything before the offensive forces attacked. Using combos of 10k of several things is prohibitively expensive, which prevents the attacker from continuing along that course for long. Meanwhile, most of your losses will be in ammunition. Keep a large store of ammo with your weapons and you will be virtually invincible.

From what I've read, you are the intolerant one, Thomas. Warlords usually tolerate economists, and usually only go after them if they see a good opportunity for success (see your definition above). You weren't killed because you were an economic player, you were killed because you had a valuable asset (population) you weren't willing to defend. You seem to be intolerant of anyone succeeding, as long as it involves direct competition with you in a part of the game that you neglect.

Btw, awards are BAAAAD! because they are generally the least efficient means to success.
