[OOC]   How do I include my nation's data and/or fix "data error" messages?

The information linked in this thread is pulled from the National Survey. In order for your nation’s data to be recorded in a machine-readable format, please take special care to follow the guidelines listed below.

  • Do not modify the template provided in the national survey thread, even if the output looks the same.
  • Multiple nations in a single post are not supported. Please make a separate post for each one.
  • Write out numbers in full.
    • Do this: $1,208,174,117,040
    • Don’t do this: $1.2 trillion
  • Use periods, not commas, as a decimal separator. Commas are acceptable as a delimiter to separate groups of digits; spaces are not.
    • Do this: $1,208,174,117,040
    • Or do this: $1208174117040
    • Don’t do this: $
    • Don’t do this either: $1 208 174 117 040
  • Keep units if they are included in the template, and omit them otherwise.
  • For numerical answers, do not add additional notes. Doing so will prevent your answers from being parsed as a number, which is needed if you would like your nation to be included in ranking calculations.
  • Keep labels and answers on the same line. Do not separate them onto multiple lines, and do not insert formatting such as lists or paragraph breaks in your answers.
