Well done. I think I'm probably going to copy the format you used. Did you use the US dollar in the exchange rate just as a point of reference or does the US exist in this world we will be rping in?

First what has been produced is part one. There are several more sections missing such as government and military. The format is basically what is suggested in the thread about making fact books.

Second the US Dollar is used because that is how the GDP [gross domestic product] and such is generally determined. I'm not sure if the US exists or not but I'm sure somewhere there is an "old continent" nation that other nations use its currency as a standard to compare items like GDP and debt with. The dollar is the unit they use. Razz
