Yeah, it's either 1 or 3 for sure. I just think lobotomies are a little extreme. I'd feel better with just electroshock and drugs.

Agreed on the lobotomies. If you're gonna do that, just go with Stepford Wife robots instead.

OK.

The Talking Point
Glassy-eyed Squatters Cragian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command.

Reclassification
Squatters Crag's Civil Rights fell from Excellent to Very Good.

That somehow led to:

It's all right, guys. I reaffirmed freedom of religion, so Civil Rights are back up to Excellent.

The Issue

The merchant navy of Thanks Obama has seen increasing attacks from swashbuckling pirates in recent months, devastating the nation’s foreign trade.
The Debate

“We should blow them out of the water!” says First Lord Admiral Ali Larkin. “These waterlogged vagabonds have been plundering our ships for far too long! All our exports from the Arms Manufacturing industry are going straight into their hands! It’s downright dangerous for us to let this continue! All we require is some funding for coastal patrol boats, fleet carriers, and nuclear submarines and a free hand to show these freebooters what’s what.”

“Hello,” says a grog-swilling, peg-legged scurvy dog entering your office. “I’m Elsa Sajak, a mighty pirate. I’d like to suggest that instead of wasting all that money on attacking pirates you simply buy them off with barrels of bullion, jewels and Maxtopian gold! There’ll still be pirates around, sure, but as long as everyone’s paid off, they won’t hinder your trade. Not much anyway.”

“Come now, that’s hardly fair,” argues ‘gentleman pirate’ Taupebeard de Gauche with a bow and flourish. “There is an ancient tradition of actively redistributing wealth on the high seas, and we active redistributors serve an important role in the global economy. You would not keep a family-run bookstore from handing down its business from generation to generation, would you? We simply ask, nay, demand the same right! And get rid of the word ‘pirate’. It’s a slur. We are corsairs - not common sea-faring thugs.”



Damn dirty pirates!

The Issue
Due to the ongoing wars in neighboring countries, a recent rash of illegal immigrants have been caught at the borders of Squatters Crag, prompting many citizens to call for tighter immigration laws.

The Debate
[Kick out all the immigrants and build a wall]


[Welcome everyone]


“Hold on there, hold on people!” says Declan Palpatine of the Squatters Crag Broadcasting company. “We don’t have to take either extreme, all we have to do is make a TV game show out of it! We put deadly obstacles on the border and monitor it with television cameras! Those that make it across win freedom and citizenship, and those who don’t, well, let’s just say that our buzzards won’t starve. We could call it ‘Who Wants to be an Immigrant?’!”

Accept

The Talking Point
The controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular.

Reclassification
Squatters Crag's Civil Rights fell from Excellent to Very Good.

I got that one. I chose to let everyone in and the talking point was something along the lines of all of the immigrants complaining about natives taking their jobs.

Right. Same here. When I was still being mostly serious, I reinstated capital punishment for Bucland. So when the chance to let a billionaire hunt violent criminals on his private island came along, I ran with it. It still meshes (sorta) with Bucland's capital punishment policy views. :D

The Department of Health is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle, restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Republic of Zarnia, public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, and a video of Leader wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news.

social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Republic of Zarnia's radio stations.

Almost every issue I vote on increases corruption. I made it legal to burn our flag as freedom of speech, corruption increased. I allowed booty shorts to be legal, corruption increased. I made trademarks and patients legal, corruption increased. Some I can see how they are getting there like with the patients and the way the booty shorts question was presented, but others it's such a leap.
