    Yes, the site was originally designed for something like 3,000 nations. And I think as of today there are 30,000+

    This site is the worst-maintained server I've ever seen. Didn't this guy sell enough of his books to afford a decent ISP?

    The Sovietskii Soyuz has encountered all of your nations. Know this: In the event of any attack on any member of the Apolytonian alliance, the Sovietskii Soyuz shall crush you all.

    He hasn't sold any books, as his book hasn't hit the shelves yet. The site was a way to promote his book. It got out of hand, and the server is now handling about 10 times the traffic he expected it to. He doesn't have a staff of any sort to maintain the server, it's just him and whoever he can get to help him out. It's a miracle the server is still up. I expect it to hit the canvas any day now.

    I was wondering that, you only seem to need three endorsements to become the delegate so if you remove your votes you can easily change the delegate :)

    I hit the site at about 7 am CST (GMT -6) this morning, and the site was pretty snappy. I guess that's a time when traffic is very low.

    I've also mindlessly stubbornly continued, and I now have a nation of pot-smoking, environmentalist nudists who give their tax mony to whomsoever they please.
