[PH/Eco] What's On Your Mind, Capitalist? (Economical)
Posted 5 years ago by
This article is in preview mode and is not visible in the news section

For the past few months, the e-Philippine economy has fluctuated quite drastically due to some measures made by the last few batches of the Congress together with their respective Country Presidents. All they want is to have the economy as stable as possible, but at some point, the results didn't go well as they planned.

As the higher authorities make and enact economic laws, the community must shift to the ever-changing battleground involving too much gold and local currencies. Even the military realm of the game is somehow attached to this "evolution", especially to those Military Units who don't implement a commune system. Adapt to the change or be left behind. But for some reason, there has always been a resistance.

Recently, an article, which was posted a couple of days ago, caused an outrage among some people. Some high-profile citizens of ePH went on a continuous debate (until now) due to conflicting ideologies. The article's topic: minimum wages. It's okay to have a sort-of "friendly" argument, but there is one thing that quite irritates me: know-it-all newbies. They comment as if they know a lot already on how to ride the economic waves well enough. They talk as if they have tamed the hostility of the three main markets in e-Sim (Job Market, Product Market, Monetary Market). They act as if they have the experience to join the argument.

You buy and sell stuff at auctions, spend 20 gold and build a company, or you're rich, build a Stock Company. But what does it take to become a businessman? And as a businessman in e-Sim, what do you NEED to know? Here are some of the important things that you NEED to know about if you're going to be a business mogul, especially if you will venture at the e-Philippine Market:


Taxes is what drives the economy forward. Every time we work, we pay a specific amount of money to the government through Income Tax. Every time a businessman sell his products, the amount posted in the market is not the the same as the one he receives as we buy them due to VAT (Value Added Tax). And sometimes, when investors post their products in markets of other countries, Import Tax will be deducted further on their earnings.

This has been a huge concern from others who want to have easy money. As the congress calibrate the tax percentage, product sellers adjust their product prices or find new ways to sell them. Company managers adjust their employees' salaries. People tend to decrease their employees' salaries to lessen their burden of


STRADE or #strade is an IRC channel where traders and economic organizations enjoy a tax-free environment. Yes, even economic organizations. It may be also called as the black market in e-Sim (in other servers, they have also their own versions of #strade: #SeTrade in Secura and #SuTrade in Suna), although it's pretty wide open for all to use.

About the game:

USA as a world power? In E-Sim it is possible!

In E-Sim we have a huge, living world, which is a mirror copy of the Earth. Well, maybe not completely mirrored, because the balance of power in this virtual world looks a bit different than in real life. In E-Sim, USA does not have to be a world superpower, It can be efficiently managed as a much smaller country that has entrepreneurial citizens that support it's foundation. Everything depends on the players themselves and how they decide to shape the political map of the game.

Work for the good of your country and see it rise to an empire.

Activities in this game are divided into several modules. First is the economy as a citizen in a country of your choice you must work to earn money, which you will get to spend for example, on food or purchase of weapons which are critical for your progress as a fighter. You will work in either private companies which are owned by players or government companies which are owned by the state. After progressing in the game you will finally get the opportunity to set up your own business and hire other players. If it prospers, we can even change it into a joint-stock company and enter the stock market and get even more money in this way.

In E-Sim, international wars are nothing out of the ordinary.

Become an influential politician.

The second module is a politics. Just like in real life politics in E-Sim are an extremely powerful tool that can be used for your own purposes. From time to time there are elections in the game in which you will not only vote, but also have the ability to run for the head of the party you're in. You can also apply for congress, where once elected you will be given the right to vote on laws proposed by your fellow congress members or your president and propose laws yourself. Voting on laws is important for your country as it can shape the lives of those around you. You can also try to become the head of a given party, and even take part in presidential elections and decide on the shape of the foreign policy of a given state (for example, who to declare war on). Career in politics is obviously not easy and in order to succeed in it, you have to have a good plan and compete for the votes of voters.

You can go bankrupt or become a rich man while playing the stock market.

The international war.

The last and probably the most important module is military. In E-Sim, countries are constantly fighting each other for control over territories which in return grant them access to more valuable raw materials. For this purpose, they form alliances, they fight international wars, but they also have to deal with, for example, uprisings in conquered countries or civil wars, which may explode on their territory. You can also take part in these clashes, although you are also given the opportunity to lead a life as a pacifist who focuses on other activities in the game (for example, running a successful newspaper or selling products).

At the auction you can sell or buy your dream inventory.

E-Sim is a unique browser game. It's creators ensured realistic representation of the mechanisms present in the real world and gave all power to the players who shape the image of the virtual Earth according to their own. So come and join them and help your country achieve its full potential.

Invest, produce and sell - be an entrepreneur in E-Sim.
