But after a while you only get repeats of issues to deal with and nothing new, thats the point I stopped playing it at a good year or so ago.
The Dominion of JackofBlades is a tiny, safe nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 million are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The Armed Republic of Zaphodism is a tiny, pleasant nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5 million have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Education and Healthcare are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 17%. A robust private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming industries.
Crime is moderate. Zaphodism's national animal is the babel fish and its currency is the babel.
(French) a person who exercises power or influence in certain areas without holding an official position; "the President's wife is an eminence grise in matters of education"
An éminence grise (French for "grey eminence"), is a powerful advisor or decision-maker who operates secretly or otherwise unofficially. This phrase originally referred to Cardinal Richelieu's right-hand man, François Leclerc du Tremblay, a Capuchin priest who wore gray robes." The phrase "His Eminence" is to describe a Cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church, although Leclerc du Tremblay died before the title was ever conferred upon him.
The Borderlands of The Unknown Mountain is a tiny, devout nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5 million are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The large government is mainly concerned with Religion & Spirituality, although Law & Order and Healthcare are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 21%. A healthy private sector is led by the Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.
Crime is moderate. The Unknown Mountain's national animal is the dragon and its currency is the danarius
The Oppressed Peoples of Ignorancia Island is a tiny, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5 million enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Defence, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 28%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Cheese Exports.
Crime is a problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Ignorancia Island's national animal is the pygmy monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the yen.
