Public transport can't satisfy the needs of all people. Walking and biking is realistic option only if the distance is not more than 10-20km and you don't have any luggage with you. And you can't transport heavy luggage using public transport. If you live far from any city, the public transport is scarce and busses are far in between...it becomes extremely difficult. If you have to go to work(and you most definitely will, unless your father is billionaire) your options are two - car or moving to the city.
Even more, if you use the public transport and need to carry luggage with you, sooner or later you will need to rely on rather expensive types of transportation - like rented cars or taxis. Actually, usually it is cheaper to pay for the gasoline than to use the bus. If we are talking about transportation outside the cities.
Why car? If you live in a small town or even village, you can't realistically expect to have a bus every hour or every half an hour. Because those have rather small population, thus number of people who travel is small, thus not that much paying people, usually small towns and villages have very poor public transport and it is extremely difficult to go to work, to go to a dentist, doctor or whatever, unless you are willing to wait half a day or days for a bus to return.
When I do the math, round trip using my car is cheaper than using the bus and not to mention - much more convenient. I choose when I will depart, when I will arrive, where I will stop and when I will return.

Not in America. They'll generally get some bonuses (a pension, slight discount in some stores for some items), but apart from that the government doesn't really care what happens to them after they stop being military property

And another thing is there are more injuries than just lack of arm or leg, because they can have mental issues.

State health insurance actually covers 100% of the cost for prosthetics. Same for therapy for veterans. State healthcare for veterans is actually good.

Whatís your opinion on cars?

Useful, polluting, have a too big claim on land usage (just the parking spaces per car is 3.5), just a decrease of 10 % will solve the congestion problem.

TauriFederation, sure, cars will always be needed for doctors, nurses, firemen etc. And yeah mechanics/ construction workers too. But most ppl can do days without needing a car if they live in a human centred area. Too many places are car centred. The Dutch used to have car centred cities too.
Now we have cargo bikes. Car free or car low city centre. Walkable distances between home/ shop/ school/ work. But most will just use a bike.

Some cargo bikes can carry 200+ kg.

Many of them look cool. They are convenient. I'll never drive one, for medical reasons, but I do appreciate the convenience and style.

The Union of Russian Communist Empire

I'm like Emperor Kirl, Russian Communist Empire, our country closes borders with all countries. The reason for the closure of the borders is the mass information that is the propaganda of the Russian Communist Empire. all information crossing the border of the country will be monitored. We also created our own Internet and all information will be located there, but access to all external information will be closed, with the exception of social networks, but the information will still be checked.

They are kinda nice but i hate traffic jams. Also they are bad for environment but electric cars are more common now so maybe they'll get rid of CO2 emissions.

I mean yea all of these points are reasonable and make sense for most countries. But from what i know Netherlands kind of got rid of the problem, because their cities and suburbs are planned in such a way, that if you're living somewhere you can get quite fast to most shops and buildings needed in every day life, which means that they need to use car only to get to work ( if we assume they don't live next to workplace) or on vacation.

The Kingdom of Woreyland

decided to add a little more to this factbook (have not edited it in ages):

one sunny day 2 leaders met on 17th of feb 1883 to decuss a union between the two nations. the two nations were The Empire of Yellowland and The Empire of Sunland. on 18th of June 1884 The Union of The Yellowsun was born.

years passed, alot of wars was fought and most of them we won.

ww1 came along and we won it and it was during ww1 we created our very special army unit called "Elite Toi".... you say "Toi" has "Toy".... and "Toi" means "Unit".... so "Elite Unit".... Elite does not have it's own word in our language....anyway in ww1 it had 2k men in it... the "Elite Toi" was sadly disbanded in ww2 after our defeat to the germans but was remade in the mid 1980s with 20k men in it!

1990 saw the Miltary grow from a tiny army to a massive army!

2017 saw The Biggest warship ever built and we call it "HMS Blue". it is an Ultra Battleship. it is currently undefeated. it last fought a battle on the 2nd of march 2022. HMWNS = His/Her Majesty's Woreylandian Naval Ship.
(Btw Non-Miltary Naval Ships like Cargo Ships are called "HMWSS [Insert Ship Name Here]", which means "His/Her Majesty's Woreylandian Service Ship [Insert Ship Name Here]")

2019 was The Year The Browns stopped Leading us!

(if u want me to add more just upvote this Factbook!)

Bikes can carry 200kg. But you cannot. Try driving a bike with 200kg luggage in the mountains and hills for hundreds of kilometres and you will quickly find out why. Not everyone lives in a country, where most of the land is flat and some even below the sea-level.
Walkable distances between home and work is nonsense. Unless you marry for a particular company, you cannot seriously say something like this. Today you work in this company, tomorrow your workplace might be on the other side of the city.
I won't give up my mobility, ride the bus, be late and breathe all viruses currently in circulation, while being in small enclosed space.
For me, your post is kinda absurd. Driving 300km in one direction just to see your parents is something usual here. You cannot do this using a bike. If I am to rely on buses and trains, because there aren't direct connections between some of the points, travels which I can finish in hours using a car - I will need days to complete them. If I am to use alternatives...including taxis - this would cost me entire fortune. Some of us don't stay inside the city boundaries. We have mountains, it's not like our entire country is flat. I've lived in a hilly city too, where driving a bike is difficult and extremely terrible experience during the winter. You either lose grip while climbing the hill or you try not to break your head downhill. Ice and snow.

Where I live in Houston, weíre about 50 feet above sea level, the only hills you see man made ones, and we have more then 3 million people here. Same with New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Beijing, and many other cities. The majority of large cities actually are in this situation I think, unless I got my geography wrong

You are wrong. Find a Topographic Map of Europe and see for yourself.
