Published by Daniel Popescu
ANNO1777 is an online game that simulates an economic political and military system, like the real world. You are a citizen of the seventeenth century who fights on all levels to advance the social hierarchy. You can open businesses, become governor or you can build a military empire. Everything is up to you. Unlike other games of this type, the virtual money from ANNO1777 can be exchanged for real money and vice versa. In other words, a financial success in the virtual world of the game becomes a financial success in the real world.

What is ANNO 1777?

Some words about this new interesting game (from official rule):
"The product consumption increases your strength, and the increase of your strength means more money" -
This phrase summarizes the mechanism behind the game. Before proceeding to a detailed discussion on how ANNO1777works, the first step would be to understand the basics. Strength is the mostimportant indicator and based on it, the productivity is calculated, and also the wagethat you are paid, bonuses and many other amounts of money you receive during thegame. Strength increases when consuming products, and decreases automaticallyevery hour, when fighting or working. This chapter will explain indicators such asstrength, Economic Score, Productivity or Military Score. 
Economy
 The economy from ANNO1777 is very much like a real market economy.There are companies,
shares
, shareholders, stocks of raw materials and products,companies turn to advertising in order to increase sales and of course everyone relieson very good employees which pay accordingly. Markets are 100% free and the pricedepends on supply and demand. Everything is related to the player's activity. Thereare no companies which operate by themselves, and the employees are of coursechosen between the players. All products from weapons to banking services aremanufactured / supplied by companies owned and established by the players. In other words, it takes you to do that. You can continue to work at your job or you can startfrom only one company and in the end, have a holding consisting of dozens of companies. You will be the only one who establishes these limits.
Banking & Finance
If you do not know yet, we will tell you a secret. A strong economy cannotexist without a strong financial system. In any market economy, finances are the
 
 backbone. When we say
finances
, we mean stock exchange, banks and insurance.ANNO1777 economy also has a financial system and as you might have suspected,the system is run 100% by players. When founding a company, 1,000
shares
areissued, of which 900 are the owner's. The
shares
can then be traded on a free market.And if when you were little, you dreamt of becoming a banker, and have notsucceeded yet, now you can do it because in ANNO1777 anyone can open a bank.Banks offer loans and attract money by deposits or current accounts. Banks collectfees for the operations undertaken, and the interest, along with the rest of charges areset free by the owners.
The Press
 Without a free press, any social system would sooner or later transform into adictatorship. And that's exactly what we're trying to avoid in ANNO1777. Thereforewe designed the press system based on the idea that anyone can freely express their opinion even if that opinion seems a little strange to others. And to give you somedetails, anyone can open a newspaper, which is nothing but a subtype of a company.In that newspaper you can publish articles on any topic you wish. And when we say'any topic' we mean any
article
which does not violate any applicable law. In other words, hard language or pornography are permitted in any form as long as they donot violate any law in force in the real world, in the country where you live. Newspapers are companies and companies exist to make profit. Besides the revenuesfrom the actual sales of newspapers, a publishing house earns also from advertising.And to make things more interesting, there are subscribers and subscriptions. If thewar irritates you, and the economy and finances may seem boring, maybe writingarticles will make you famous. You never know!
War & Slaves
In ANNO1777, war is present in all levels. Without the war, the consumptionand production would not be stimulated, and the reason why you work and improveyour overall health would not be so clearly defined. The war has two forms in thegame. There is one war between players, where anyone can attack anyone, whichends with the capture of slaves, and a war between nations that ends with loss of regions. Every time you attack a player and you win, that player becomes your slave,and from that moment on, he will pay you taxes from all eligible cashing he has. Thesystem was designed so that no one will be free. All players are slaves / owners of another player. The slaves are the most important source of income. They can also be bought and sold for gold.
Politics & Elections
 Politics is dirty. This is a line you hear everywhere. And neither politics, nor  politicians from ANNO1777 will be otherwise. It brings you money, it gives you thestrength that you dreamed of, and your decisions can influence thousands of players.Let's discuss some details. First, you should remember that in ANNO177 the playersare placed in areas with a structure similar to the one from the real life. In other words, there are countries and regions with the same names as those found in thegeographic atlas from school. When a player enters the game from real Austria, hewill be placed in a virtual Austria, in a random region, and he can later move from
 
there. Every month, in every country, elections are organized. Anyone can run for a position by filing a government program. Anyone can vote. The first candidate whohas the highest number of votes becomes the president of the country. The following20 candidates become governors. The Government decides everything, starting withthe prize you'll get in fights, up to the VAT on virtual products. It may start wars, itmay change taxes and it may offer dazzling prizes. Also it can transfer amounts from budgets to organizations and from there to anyone. Yes, there is a state budget andthe governors have wages. Who sets their wages? They do that, of course. But theycould set very high wages, someone may say ... they could become corrupt and stealmoney from the budget, someone else might say .... Well, as we said, politics is dirty.
Private Territories
 Politicians from your country annoy you? Do you feel that they steal and donot care about you? In real life this could be a difficult problem to solve. But inANNO1777 you can buy your own country which you can run by your own rules.Private territories are countries led by one single man. They have their own currency,local taxes and the government is appointed by the owner. Private territories have acorrespondent in the real world, under the form of private islands (Maldive, Bahamas,etc. ....). Basically we have selected dozens of private islands from the real world andwe introduced them in ANNO1777 under the form of Private Territories. Initially,these lands are purchased from the game but can subsequently be traded on a freemarket. In your island you always have the last word. Nobody can tell you what todo. You can set up your fees and taxes, or you can expel citizens, or censor the pressif you don't like what you're seeing. All strength is concentrated in the hands of oneman. You think it's too hard? You can form a government to take over some tasks. Of course the government is also appointed by you, and therefore the lack of disciplinecan be immediately punished. How do you make money? It's simple. You can alwayswithdraw money from the state budget, which is practically yours. Hundreds of citizens from the island who pay fees and taxes to increase this budget will make yourich.
Services
 In any developed economy, the services are very well thought out andrepresent the engine of economic growth. There are thousands of services in the realworld. We have selected only five types of companies to be implemented in thegame, i.e. Organizations, Trading Companies, Lotteries, Bookmakers andAdvertising Agencies. The organizations are extremely flexible and can be political parties, military units or anything else. Trading Companies can store any type of  product and are the ideal support for those who want to buy goods from one placeand sell them overseas at a double price. If you like gambling, Lotteries andBookmakers are perfect for you, and Advertising Agencies can bring you earningsdirectly in
EURO
in minimum length of time.
Advertising
 Advertising is the soul of commerce. Everyone knows it. Without a seriousadvertising campaign no company would surpass the starting point. Since the rule isvalid in the real world, it must be created in the virtual one too, i.e. in ANNO1777.
