Sure! Research in groups of four. This benefits you and your techies. Each four researches you do, your techies gain 1 research point in whatever you researched.

Always research in fours. xD

Beginning of game, simply get your land up. Research, buy troops, get land up. :) Late game is where it gets fun. This is how I ranked each round I played. xD Sounds simple enough.

If you need anymore help, message me. ^_^

Oh, always have three techies on hand. Economy alliances are good too. Don't worry too much about Offensive and Defensive Alliances.

Also, it's good to get involved with a clan, otherwise you'll be massed (Attacked a bunch of times) a lot.

I can't really read your font, but researching in 4's means like.. 4 military at a time, or 4 ref at a time.. or just research in 4's 8's 12's, etc..

check out sals guide to nations, it'll help alot.

Yeah, check out Sal's guide. Or go to the Game Manual under Misc. and click Goliath's manual. That's a good one too.

Groups of four means just research in multiples of four. It doesn't matter where. Most people don't even research espionage or medical. Just do them in multiples of four, wherever.

more land, = more population growth, more indus. = more $ too
best way is more land thus u get more people
so research mil, explore land so ur pop. can grow and pay u taxes, change taxes to 15% as well

no higher
or they wont pay it.

res ind for some easy helpfull cash :)

And If you're REALLY desperate and can't even afford ind, do residential. Which should get you near enough for some decent res, which should in turn get you land, which should in turn get you more money, which should in turn get you a successful nation.

Assuming you continue to res right ;)

You might want to set your tax rate to 15% if you haven't already. As Viper and Tina already pointed out, try to get as much industrial as you can right now to help with getting more funds. Just keep researching and exploring when you can. Eventually you'll get rolling.
