    It's in +3, and I guess their times will just be different.

    I thought that since we generally have gov't actitivites starting/ending at 00:00 and RP-wise, we're on the island right now, it would be best to have the capital in the "neutral" time zone.

    If all would prefer it be in +3, that caaannnn be changed.

    so the capital territory is in +3 why can't we make that whole timezone 0 and shift the others accordingly?
    i know it seems like a lot of work but it makes sense to keep the capital territory in 0.

    The capital is in an exclave of zero. I don't think the area has a permanent population anyway, just visiting dignitaries. (Also it would look weird if 0 was shifted that far over)
