- Endotarting Drive
What the heck does that mean?
Endotarting is when you, as a World Assembly nation, go around to every other World Assembly nation in the region and endorse them. This is great for other people's nations because it increases their endorsement census stat and gives them a warm fuzzy feeling. It's also great because every endorsement that a nation has will give them an influence point twice a day. You can't get native Refugia influence any other place, that magical stuff only exists here. If you're interested in building your nation's stats, or getting a better card rarity, endorsing other nations and have them endorse you back is the easiest way to start.
Having endorsements and influence is always a powerful boon. More badges on your nation increase its prestige, increase your level in challenges, and there's even strong evidence to support that it has an outsized role in increasing your card's rarity. But more than that, it is a tool of security. If something were to happen to me and my administration, the executive control over this region would be given to the World Assembly Delegate, and if a bad actor gets control of an executive delegacy, they'll have the ability to start banning nations and destroying this region. Since it costs influence proportional to yours to ban you, the more you have, the more unaffordable it is to ban you. If they can't afford it, you're safe and so is the region thanks to this collective safety net.
Traditionally, Refugia boasts the 2nd highest average endorsement count of any region because of our robust endotarting culture and drive to support one another. This is an amazing accomplishment, but we need to make sure that we maintain it.
Now, or in the future, if you want an easy way to check who you haven't endorsed up to yesterday, we have a special tool called Tart.CalRef, which locates those nations and places them in a nifty grid that you can ctrl+click open in a flash. This tool makes endorsing much faster than trying to hunt things down on your own, and I'd recommend giving it a go since there are so many nations to endorse.

In addition to the benefits, Refugia will be encouraging endotarting by providing all World Assembly nations various incentives when our total regional endorsement count reaches certain thresholds. These thresholds and incentives will be the following for this event:
When the region reaches 12,000 total endorsements, all World Assembly nations in Refugia will receive a free and randomly selected Season 3 Epic card from Refugia's strategic stockpile.
At 14,000 Endorsements, we will give Refugia a full thematic makeover for the month of January in a move that will either please or confuse everyone.
At 16,000 Endorsements, all World Assembly nations will receive a random Season 2 Epic card from the the strategic stockpile.
At 18,000 Endorsements, I will re-skin Vote.CalRef to be darkmode themed like the rest of our sites.
At 20,000 Endorsements, all World Assembly nations will receive a random Season 1 Epic card from the its respective strategic stockpile.
Refugia can contain a maximum of 33,000 endorsements at the present time, so I'm sure we can do it, and the best way to begin building your influence and wealth is to start endorsing today. If you do not wish to use the Tart.CalRef utility, you may feel free to make use of the list of World Assembly nations below. Good luck and I'll see you on the 17th.
