Most Mandatey Mandate Monitor™

The Miniconomist  vNews presents: Might be a Mandate Monitor™ – a continuously updated one off list of who’s who in the Federation. It is a top ten of those that hold the most powerful positions in both the Federation and player countries. The mandates that include payment aren’t posted in colour.

1: Forsties

Self-explanatory, why wouldn’t he be top of the list. Also remembered his password to the vNews publisher.

Paid criminally too little.


2: Woshiempire()

King of some country across the sea where everyone is allergic to harbours.

Paid more than Forsties.



Does important work in the REDACTED.

Paid from time to time.


4-9: viraxje

Has a gun which makes him very persuasive.

Paid in gunpowder and Thug achievement points.


10: sugarfree

I said his positions weren’t politically powerful so this is me making it up to him.

Paid in visitors to his dungeon.


Honourable mention: hubinho

because someone said so


Found an inaccuracy, some position has already been abandoned or taken by someone else? Have we missed a mandate? Let us know in the Miniconomist vNews club.

Cash in the banks! Or in the economy?

It’s always depending per player, will they save their cash or will they put it safely(?) at the banks. It’s common known that in the first week (and the second) of the tradingperiod the money needs to ‘flow’, but what do the citizens of the countries think of this concept?

Several sources have let vNews know that the following amounts of I-shells are dropped in the national banks of the countries.

  • Vitua – 125.000 I-shells the banks;
  • Digitalia – 312.000 I-shells in the banks;
  • Cyberia – 508.000 I-shells in the banks;
  • Ibisha – 390.000 I-shells in the banks;

Now, what do these statistics tell us? It’s clear to see that Cyberians don’t like the concept at all, are they greedy? Or not trusting that their money will get back to them eventually? All possible, but what we know is that they don’t really like to spend a lot of money.

In Ibisha and Digitalia we can clearly see that traders put their money on the banks aswell. Virtuans however like to spend money and keep it going, which you can see above, only an amount of 125.000 I-shells is in the banks there!

Well, you just heard some statistics and you might be thinking, what to invest my beloved I-shells in then? We give you a few suggestions:

  1. Skyscrapers: Very effective, especially if you have a lot of stories! 
  2. Get yourself some reserves: makes it way more easier to fill up your stores.
  3. Build a nice club: not really good for your own wallet, but very nice for the social aspect of our game.

Keep the money going! We are only at the beginning of this trading period.

Stats Corner: Top-10 Country Player Base

Today is another day for a statistics article. Today we are going to take a look at how many players are in each country in Miniconomy. I used the statistics page for this article and there is a note: “The countries are shown as entered with registration. This will not be completely accurate, but should give a good indication of where players live.” Let’s get it on!

To start this article off, it is no surprise that the country with the most payers is The Netherlands. The Home-base of Miniconomy, where it was born. There are 53.952 players based in The Netherlands.

Following the second country, which was to my surprise: the United States, a non-European country.I was expecting Belgium to be second, as a big part of Belgium is dutch. But the facts say something else. I think it’s good; Miniconomy is an international game, and with having lots of players in the US, is even better for the international status of Miniconomy. The US is known as a big country, with lots of people living there. But, the player group based in the US is very small compared to the number of people living there. 11.880 players are based in the US.

At third we have Belgium, and to be honest, it doesn’t have much difference with the number of players based there as in the US. 10.931 Players are from Belgium.

The United Kingdom is following Belgium, but with way less players than Belgium has. 3.985 players, that is almost 6000 players less than Belgium.

Something I really did not expected to be in the top-10 is Afghanistan. The country that is in war for years now. And still 1093 players are based in that country.

Here is the chart for the top-10 countries with most players.

We will see you next week again. Have fun and good luck in the round!

[Day 18/21]

Do you like money? Do you like paying small amounts of money for larger amounts of money? Do you like striking it rich overnight? Well then do I have good news for you!

For those of you who have been trapped under a rock or perhaps in one of Xzese’s broken down cars on the side of the road in Virtua, you should come out and head over to the services section of your local Government. There you can find the largest jackpot this reporter has ever seen, possibly ever! 9,000 I-shell are up for grabs and a mere 100 I-shell is enough to earn 10 attempts to win this prize! Out of 500 potential numbers drawn, that’s a 2% chance! What are the odds of that!?!

But wait! It gets better! Some of you may be wondering how rare it is for the jackpot to climb this high. Well, you’re in luck because I’m about to get all scientific and mathematical on you!

You see, on average I would say that about 150 lottery tickets are sold or 30% of the tickets. That means the odds of someones number NOT getting drawn is 70%! That may seem quite high but here is where things get interesting.

The odds of someone’s number NOT getting drawn twice in a row is 0.7*0.7(70%*70%) which equals 0.49 or 49%! That means there’s over a 50% chance that someone wins every two draws.

This pattern goes on. Below are the probabilities that we reach certain jackpots:
1,000 I-shell = 100%
2,000 I-shell = 70%
3,000 I-shell = 49%
4,000 I-shell = 34%
5,000 I-shell = 24%
6,000 I-shell = 17%
7,000 I-shell = 12%
8,000 I-shell = 8%
9,000 I-shell = 5.7%

A 5.7% chance of a 9,000 I-shell lottery prize means this only happens once every 17.5 rounds which means that this is approximately the 8th time this has ever happened in the game! (assuming the lottery was implemented in round 1)

So head on over to your local government services, buy a ticket and make some history! (and some big bucks!)
