Why Endorsements Matter

The influence stat is a great boon! In addition to being a possible 1% census badge, it's a vital component of regional security. When a region loses its Governor, the region's World Assembly Delegate gains executive authority, and is able to control almost all aspects of regional administration. Since the Delegate is whichever nation has the most endorsements, a region can become hijacked by a coordinated group of nations aiming to take over with little to no notice. In these takeovers, it is possible for invaders to empty the region of nations, causing the region to be deleted and destroying its posts, images, and history.

One saving grace is that while a Governor may ban nations for free, an invader must spend influence. For Delegates, the cost is half the influence of the nation they wish to ban. Therefore, the more influence a nation has, the harder it becomes to ban them. Nations receive one influence point twice a day for each endorsement they have; therefore, the earlier nations collectively start to build influence, the safer everyone will be. This technique of mutual protection is called an Influence Fortress, one of the best methods of ensuring that your region is never destroyed by invaders.

Be aware that some regions have limits on how many endorsements a nation can legally have. You may wish to check if your region is one with such limits.
