Hey everyone, I wanted to post here to get some more people applying for Security Council money and hopefully, getting other members of the council involved with dispensing that money.
Way I see it, there's no need for the council to even have money so if I'm going to be here, I figure I better clean out the vaults as fast as possible. I mean really it doesn't do anyone any good to have money sitting here. Better you guys enjoy it and build armies and infrastructure to play the game. If I had the option to, I'd vote myself money until we ran out. I certainly would enjoy it more than a bunch of people who don't bother asking for security council money.
There's no reason not to try to receive aid. Frankly, the only thing you should need to worry about is the system preventing me or others from giving you money... well, that and the huge pile of dicks that vote against proposals for no good reason.
Thus far, the only limitations in proposing aid that I'm aware of are that you must have less than $2T and have not yet reached Game Level 3. Oh, and one member can't put in another proposal for a little after they already put one in.
Post here, spam the security council members via account or country message, and be sure to mention your country name somewhere in your post/message if you wish to receive aid.

My nation, the Federal Republic of Plato is an old nation of nearly 300 years and currently it has experienced an economic meltdown and it is close to catastrophe, a disaster which will see me having to leave my only nation as a possibility . The cash has reduced from around 17T to just over 4T and the total assets has came from 55T to 16T. The profit/loss index shows a -6B every month which hampers any chance of recovering. The main problems is the worker shortages which has hampered the profitability of corporations and hampered universities which as of now i have under half of the required facilities and high schools and elementarys are also under demand. On top of that Hospitals are in the same situation but, my education priority is fundamentally broken now and cant generate enough teachers university teachers doctors senior doctors or high tech engineers to rebuild any of the infrastructure or corps, if any. Which means i cant recover the educations system... and the cycle goes on. On top of this I cannot close down non profitable corporations which are at hiring 10% and production 10% because they are over 100B in market value and the game wont let me close them down. I am in a huge recess which is now bordering on disaster and i need help desperately from any nation willing to help and give me advice aswell as even the security council which could help me by giving me money to stay afoat if my cash proceeds to go under the 2T reserve limit. Please I really do need help. Regards, President Devlin..

Okay, I guess let me know when you dip below $2T.
| Tuesday, December 4, 2012 - 04:10 am |
hook a brother up. cant say i couldnt raise it myself, and im not interested in jumping through a bunch of loop holes, but if you wanna send me a few trillion, ill be happy to relieve the council of it. lol
| Tuesday, December 4, 2012 - 06:05 am |
What's your country name? I can't propose any aid if I don't know your country name.
| Tuesday, December 4, 2012 - 12:06 pm |
Okay, I received another request via PM that included the country name so proposed that first. It will be a little bit (maybe a week?) before I can propose again. Perhaps someone else would be willing to propose aid.

Mizore, I admire your good work here, but I am dismayed by how many people vote against these proposals.
There seems to be an element of not wanting to help fellow players amounts some.
Are free players allowed to vote?
| Thursday, December 6, 2012 - 07:13 pm |
yes we of the SC will help if u are need of aid
| Friday, December 7, 2012 - 02:30 am |
Hey, can you propose the aid for shave, LordNeptune? I'm not able to propose aid at this moment.
For the negative votes, I have no explanation other than they are dicks voting against aid for no good reason. Pretty sure free players are allowed to vote.
| Friday, December 7, 2012 - 05:04 am |
i tried but he seem to be fine now
| Friday, December 7, 2012 - 10:55 pm |
yes bring your money problems to the SC we will take care of your needs
| Friday, December 7, 2012 - 11:51 pm |
yea im not really in need per say, just figured ya guys were anxious to give the money away. ive got a little over 18T tucked away for a rainy day should i need it. but always willing to except a healthy Donation. lol
| Friday, December 7, 2012 - 11:54 pm |
plus i know enough to sell off my military if i needed the capital. but never seems to be the case. doesnt take me long to get economically stable. but thnx anyway guys!
| Saturday, December 8, 2012 - 08:07 am |
| Saturday, December 15, 2012 - 04:22 pm |
I'll bet I can propose aid again. Please send me a message or post here if you want free money.
Don't forget to tell me your country name.
| Tuesday, December 18, 2012 - 02:13 am |
I'm not using this to recruit anyone, dictate to anyone, or sell anything to anyone. There are no strings attached. The money is actually free.
| Tuesday, December 18, 2012 - 11:12 pm |
send it! lol The Polarian Republic

Im a new player and I sure could use some aid lol. My country is The Red Union of Zamara
| Friday, December 21, 2012 - 12:55 pm |
Vlad: i checked, and according to the game, you don't exist. Check spelling?
| Friday, December 21, 2012 - 02:31 pm |
Still lots of players voting against the proposals, for no good reason that I can see.
| Friday, December 21, 2012 - 02:44 pm |
Zarma not Zamara lol
| Friday, December 21, 2012 - 02:55 pm |
I've already got someone in line for my next aid proposal.
If something happens, I'll vote aid for you when I become eligible, but I really hope someone else can propose aid for you right now.
Maybe this message will shed light on why some people vote against proposals:
"pass me 250billion and i'll vote yes for your UN vote." - lukem of The Grand State of Bandoka
| Saturday, December 22, 2012 - 07:56 pm |
Yes, I'ld want at least half.
| Sunday, December 23, 2012 - 12:10 am |
I couldn't propose aid for two people who requested aid. Messages have been sent informing you. However, the third person in line was eligible so aid has been proposed.
This clears my queue. Please send more aid requests. It looks like the point where I can propose aid is immediately after general voting for my last proposal concludes.
| Sunday, December 23, 2012 - 12:19 am |
I will also propose aid for any who qualify. use it wisely. Continue to post here if you need aid. To voting members: It is in our own best interests to give this aid when at all possible, to help expand our markets and possibly help a new player become an economic powerhouse down the road. Once upon a time, I received aid myself. It costs us nothing extra,(so far), and there is no real reason to vote against any proposal unless that player has expressd an intent to use it for aggresive purposes, and let's face it: 2T is not going to buy enough weaponry to make anyone a threat.
| Monday, December 24, 2012 - 04:19 am |
exactly! I move it be increased to 10T lol
| Monday, December 24, 2012 - 07:38 pm |
Okay, 2 days until I can next propose aid. Apply now! First come, first serve to those that the system will allow me to propose aid for.
| Wednesday, January 2, 2013 - 08:01 am |
NOT A LOAN!
This ain't an IMF loan!
| Saturday, January 5, 2013 - 06:52 am |
Please show your support and vote in favor of the most recent resolution!
| Tuesday, January 8, 2013 - 07:11 pm |
Can I get Bumble Town and Strenhold added to the list for funds? I keep watching for the votes to come to the rest of us and voting when called on. I agree with you that the money doesn't do any good just sitting around! lol
| Thursday, January 10, 2013 - 03:30 am |
Unfortunately, I received the following message trying to propose aid: "You cannot give Development Aid to Presidents who already reached Game Level 3." I must apologize, but the system will simply not allow me to propose aid.
In yet more unfortunate news, the previous aid proposal was shot down in general voting by the unnerving display of ignorant contrarianism by opponents of passing out free money that would otherwise go to waste forever sitting in a cold steel vault where nobody will be able to smile and enjoy their time on this world with everything that money can provide. I appeal to all presidents of Kebir Blue to not once, not ever let another travesty like this happen again! We must unite this money with presidents that need it so that roads, schools, hospitals, and defenses may be built to protect and provide for their citizens. NEVER AGAIN!
| Thursday, January 10, 2013 - 02:44 pm |
I must have missed this proposal, and I apologize. I almost always vote to give aid. and I ran into the same problem of not being able to make a proposal due to recent proposals. resubmit and I will try to catch it in time.
| Thursday, January 10, 2013 - 05:45 pm |
To be clear it was general voting, not security council voting... so it was your average joe banana republic dick-tator that voted against it.
| Thursday, January 10, 2013 - 07:33 pm |
To be honest Scarlet, a lot of these countries that get proposed would benefit far more from some advice. I do vote no occasionally if I see a country that is just wasting all on military. I would normally message them with advice.
I feel that if a Security Council member takes it upon him/herself to propose a country for aid, then they should at least mentor them a bit.
| Monday, January 14, 2013 - 04:15 pm |
I've voted both ways, but if I see a country asking for aid that has a huge military I just about always shoot it down. I don't think someone who spends billions on military then beg all of us for money. Thanks for trying Mizore.
| Monday, January 28, 2013 - 03:49 pm |
Hey my country needs money. I own two countries the Imperium of Galacia and the province of Mendaro. They are in a bad economic crisis and my main nation the imperium has no CEO corps. Can someone send me money or at least make a CEO corp in my country please.
| Tuesday, January 29, 2013 - 01:05 am |
I'm not exactly new to this game, but I haven't played in quite awhile, and was hoping that you would request aid for Arcadia (my country) in LU. I plan on running a peaceful country for the time being, and look toward expansion of my empire after achieving lvl 3.
| Tuesday, January 29, 2013 - 08:36 am |
jaughnc, which world's forum are you in here? come back if you have a KB country in need
| Tuesday, February 5, 2013 - 05:45 pm |
There is a Security Council resolution being voted on to give untied developmental aid to the Grand Empire of Linusia. I proposed it and it was passed by the Council members but it is losing the general vote right now. This is a new player who is really trying hard. I mentored him for a about 3 weeks before I submitted the proposal for him. He has followed my advice and has done things right. He just needs some money to continue building his schools, hospitals, infrastructure and corps. He has not spent money on military or nukes and I am convinced he will not use this money for that either. If I wasn't sure of him I would not have proposed the aid for him. I ask you to take a look at his country and if you believe this new player deserves a chance to succeed please vote in favor of this resolution. And do the same for other deserving players. Thank you.
| Tuesday, February 5, 2013 - 06:41 pm |
He might be losing because of heavy defense spending. Has 100 forts, nearly 400k soldiers, and is building defense corps that wont make money. He would be positive in monthly profits, even without beginning booster, if he were not spending over $5B on monthly defense upkeep.
I would have trouble voting for it also. He needs to sell or at least deactivate some part of his military and focus on profitable corps.
| Tuesday, February 5, 2013 - 08:56 pm |
Good points Aries. Those slipped in there or I would have given him the same advice. I have now communicated this to him for him to decide what he wants to do with our advice. I think many of us made mistakes early on especially with military spending. But if you look at his indexes he hasn't ignored that important part of the game. I still think he is a good, active new player and we should give him this one chance to use our generosity to build his country. Also he has been very receptive to advice Aries so I don't think he would mind if you wanted to share some tips directly with him.
| Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - 10:11 pm |
And the more assets he has, the more there is to raid later ;)
| Thursday, February 7, 2013 - 12:46 am |
Very true Crafty. I agreed with your earlier advice about doing some mentoring and not just proposing to give them money. So I tried for whatever my advice may be worth.
| Thursday, February 7, 2013 - 12:47 am |
| Thursday, February 7, 2013 - 12:53 am |
But the vote is still losing. Thanks to those who voted in favor so far.
| Saturday, March 9, 2013 - 07:59 pm |
Developmental Aid is available to qualified Kebir Blue countries. You can message any member of the Security Council, including me, with a request for aid up to 2T.Thus far, the only limitations in proposing aid that I'm aware of are that you must have less than $2T and have not yet reached Game Level 3. This is not a loan and no repayment is required.
Although none of this is required by the Security Council it is the the reality - the presidents voting on the aid for you are going to want to see your financials so unlock them if locked. Most are going to vote against you if you have a large amount of military spending or weapons corps in your country. If you have not read all of this thread and others please do so and you will see what I am talking about. Be sure you are trying to properly manage your finances before requesting aid. The aid should be for you to grow your economy. If you need help please consult the forum topics first as there is a wealth of great information there, even post a question in the forum and if after this you still need help reach out to one of the many fine members whose names you see in the forum. Most are very willing to help. I am not an expert but if I can help you please send me a message.
