I'm on daily. It's still entertaining for ten minutes a day.

Wish there was a way to make the region more engaging.

Speaking of...

Bucland has a shark problem.

Here's one of the solutions...

“Seems like you got a shark problem on your hands,” nonchalantly mutters Quant, a rugged fisherman and captain of the Okra, caressing a harpoon gun. “I’ve been fishing on the Buclandian Bay since before I could walk, I served on the S.S. Bucland City that sunk. I’ve seen these sharks up close; they’ve got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll’s eyes. I’ll take care of your shark problem, so long as I get paid handsomely. But I’ll need a bigger boat.”

:lol:

The nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', and disadvantaged youths often commit felonies to enhance their educational prospects.

It's time to change this **** up. I'm going to go from a politically free nation to a dictatorial nation. All my issues will now be for the benefit of my government. Let's see how long this takes. :D

I just had an issue that was about regulating how much water should be used on a toilet flush. I selected the no regulation option. My death rate went up 1%.

I guess people are falling in toilets and are drowning in all that unregulated water

Lol

The Issue
After the capture and trial of notorious rapist Winston Ward, who was convicted of the rape of over 50 women in the past two years a debate has emerged on how he should be punished.

The Debate
“That psychopath should be castrated,” says rape victim advocate Liara Dahl. “That’s the only punishment that can ensure the agony he put those women through will never be repeated. Additionally, it will provide some small measure of justice to the victims, and ensure that the other monsters out there think twice before attacking women! Why protect the offenders? They gave up their rights when they decided to destroy the lives of others!”

Accept

“I understand that this is a terrible time for the poor victims in this case,” says defense attorney Gretel Krugman. “However, the answer is not to revert back to the Dark Ages. Instead, we must focus on rehabilitation of all criminals in our justice system.”

Accept

“Everyone knows re-education is a waste of money, we shouldn’t go soft on these crooks!” says Director of Farming Collectives Louis Roosevelt. “Simply place all rapists and criminals in Squatters Crag into forced labor under the management of our directorate to serve out their sentences. When we’re through with them, they won’t even think of jaywalking, much less harming another person. We get free labor, and these crooks get put straight. Everybody benefits... well, except the crooks.”

Accept

Slowly but surely, I'll get there...

The Issue
After several bloody conflicts in nearby regions, a stream of asylum-seekers and refugees has been spotted heading for Bucland’s shores.

The Debate
“Some of these people have endured terrible hardships to reach our borders,” says International Red Cross spokesperson Kitty Clark. “We must welcome these unfortunates with open arms. Let the world see that Bucland does not turn its back on those in need!”

Accept

“These grasping freeloaders will swamp our culture and traditions!” argues talk-radio host Ranil Jele. “First they want welfare, next thing you know they’re taking our jobs — and you know they won’t bother to learn our language. I say charity begins at home — and this isn’t their home. This is the world’s problem, not ours.”

Accept


Economics Professor Willow Quayle offers an alternative. “There is no question that we have to help those who reach out to us in their darkest hour. But on the other hand, we cannot help everybody. So let’s just take the ones who are willing to keep our streets clean and our drains flowing in return for a subsistence wage.”

Accept

After accepting the 2nd option...

The Talking Point
The Navy has outraged the international community by sinking a boatload of refugees to prevent them reaching the shore.
