World Factbook Entry

Yggdrasil is unified under a shared dream of utopian existence. The unique sovereignty of each nation is held above all else, yet a pact of mutual defense and co-prosperity is eternally preserved. The branches of the tree grow of their own accord, but they all receive nourishment from the same roots.

Decent. Scholarships are kicking my butt, but I got all my tuition paid for college next year!

No seriously, it's killing me right now.

Well, I think Ballpit has a good guide on how to max your EE chances!

Let me link it...

I have read that having "holy" and/or "NationStates" in your classifications helps (I have had another EE in my main since I added those words). Also, you get one if you let a nation CTE and reactivate it. Also, you definitely get one or two over time if you just keep existing and addressing issues.

The ones I can remember are: christmas easter egg, halloween easter egg, religion related(?) easter egg, number of issues addressed easter egg, more than three(?) easter egg found easter egg, two(?) industry related easter egg, color related easter egg, st. patrick's day related easter egg.
Is this correct? I think there's more?

I believe there is a zombie related one as well, related to refounds.

Expert Tips:

• What is a lush? A lush is a party-perfect “no-bake” dessert, which is also known as a dessert lasagna, layered dessert or ice-box cake. It’s defined by decadent layers of varying flavors and textures – think sugar cookies, banana pudding and cool whip. Usually, a lush is made up of a brownie or crushed cookie base topped by various layers of flavored cream cheese, cool whip, pudding or all of the above! With their fluffy creamy tops dotted with garnishes – anything from cookies to candy to fruit to chocolate sauce – lushes look as good as they taste!

• What’s in this lush? This lush has a fudgy brownie base topped with whipped cream cheese, crushed Oreo cookies, chocolate pudding, more whipped topping and a garnish of more Oreos. In other words, it’s a chocolate lover’s dream come true!

• This sounds like a lot of work. There are three to four bowls needed in order to make the dessert, so there are some dishes, but the payoff is a delicious dessert that is perfect for potlucks.

• Here are our best tips for mastering this lush.

• While a metal 13x9 pan will certainly do, we recommend making this in a glass pan, because it shows the pretty layers.

• Soften the cream cheese before mixing, so it blends well, and there are no lumps. To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper and place on microwavable plate. Microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.

• For the crushed Oreo layer, you can use a food processor to crush the cookies into a fine crumb. If you don’t own a food processor, place cookies in a zip-top plastic bag and using a rolling pin, meat mallet or the back of a small pan to crush cookies. You want a fine crumb, so the base holds together.

• When spreading the layers of filling, its best to drop dollops and then spread over the surface using the back of a spoon or a flat metal spatula.

• The coarsely crushed cookies used as a garnish can simply be crushed by hand or roughly chopped.

• Don’t skimp on the four hours of refrigeration time needed. Lushes cut the best when super cold.

• Can I make this ahead? Yes, this dessert can be made the day before. Add your coarsely crushed Oreo garnish right before serving for the best taste – they add a little crunch – and the prettiest presentation.

• How long will a lush keep? This recipe makes 24 servings. If you have any leftovers, cover your pan with foil and store in the fridge for up a few days. Where can I find more lush recipes? If you find yourself in love with this lush, Betty’s got plenty more recipes you’ll want to try this summer, including Lemon Lush, Strawberry Shortcake Lush, Berry Lush, Banana Cream Pie Lush, Spumoni Brownie Lush and more!

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies (AllRecipes)

Ingredients:

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.

2. Combine cream cheese with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 egg in a mixing bowl; beat until smooth. Stir 1 cup chocolate chips into the cream cheese mixture. Set aside.

3. Fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Turn the heat off, and set a heatproof mixing bowl over the water. In the mixing bowl, combine butter with the remaining cup of chocolate chips; stir until just melted and blended together. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 2 eggs, then sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into chocolate until evenly blended.

4. Pour half of the batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the chocolate layer. Top with remaining chocolate mixture (this doesn't need to completely cover the cream cheese layer). Using a knife, swirl the top chocolate layer into the cream cheese to make a marble pattern.

5. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes, or until top is crinkled and edges pull away from sides of the pan. Cool thoroughly. Cut into 12 to 16 squares. Store in the refrigerator or freeze.

Tip:

Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Red Velvet Cheesecake Swirl Brownies (AllRecipes)

Ingredients:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ounce red food coloring
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese at room temperature
1/4 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.

2. Whisk melted butter with 1 cup sugar in a large mixing bowl; stir cocoa, red food coloring, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, vinegar, and salt into butter mixture one at a time, mixing well after each addition to avoid lumps. Stir 2 eggs into mixture until thoroughly combined.

3. Stir flour into cocoa mixture just until combined; set aside 1/4 cup batter. Pour remaining batter into the prepared baking dish.

4. Beat cream cheese in a bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy; beat 1/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract into cream cheese until very well blended and only small lumps remain, 3 to 4 minutes.

5. Spoon cream cheese mixture in dollops over the batter in pan; gently smooth tops of dollops even with batter using a knife or offset spatula. Do not overmix. Drizzle reserved 1/4 cup of batter over the dollops of cream cheese mixture. Drag a knife or skewer through the batter and cream cheese mixture to create swirls.

6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars; store covered in refrigerator.

Cook's Note:

The fluffier and smoother you can get the cheesecake mixture, the easier it will be to spread. I think this is best served the next day!
