Issues Spoilers
Originally written by Kritarchy KolumbesCompiled by Caeruleus
#000: Should Democracy Be Compulsory?WA Category: Inoffensive Centrist DemocracyDismissed (+1 Averageness)[IC - A statement from His Magnanimity to the Magistracy and the Landsraat: We should nothave to explain ourselves to our esteemed colleagues of the Convention of the Estates, nor theelders of the Witenagemot, the families of the Folketing, or even the freemen and citizenry. Youhave all your parts to play and your judges to elect. The Concordance and the Charter of Libertieswas provided to you for a reason. What you do with it and how you do it is up to you. It is notthe duty of our esteemed bodies to drag the people to the voting booths.][Option 1 = voting is voluntary; Option 2 = voting is compulsory (Political Freedom -3); Option 3= elections have been outlawed.]#018: Citizens Struggle Under "Unfair" Tax BurdenWA Category: Inoffensive Centrist DemocracyDismissed (+1 Averageness)[IC - A statement from His Magnanimity to the Magistracy and the Landsraat: At this point intime we feel that it's premature to address tax issues and cuts in welfare, health, and education.Likewise, the economy is still developing and too volatile to allow for any major interference. Wewill address this issue in the near future.][OOC: Don't know what I'm doing yet in order to take a chance with the nation.][Option 1 = The government is reining in public spending (increase economy, decrease socialwelfare, health and education); Option 2 = high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate (Economy-1, Taxes +2%, Wealth Gaps -18, increases social welfare); Option 3 = citizens select whichgovernment department gets their income tax CURRENCYs each year (Economy -12, increasecivil rights, decrease economy, increase social welfare).]#023: Uranium Deposit Promises To Enrich @@NAME@@WA Category: Inoffensive Centrist DemocracyOption 3: Following new legislation in Kritarchy Kolumbes, the mining industry is making inroadsinto environmentally sensitive areas. (-to Environment, +to Economy; Income Taxes +7, Eco-Friendliness -1)[IC - A statement from His Magnanimity to the Magistracy and the Landsraat: The base of anywell-supported economy is based on six things: Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Fisheries,Forestry, Mining, and Petroleum. Consequently, we feel that establishing Uranium mining can onlyhelp the economy and provide more workplaces. Indeed, where there is Uranium there is alsobound to be Bauxite. The rainforest area which will be felled right now should regrow within atime span of roughly 4 years after the project is finished.][OOC: Kritarchy Kolumbes's national animal is the Western Bronze-Naped Pigeon, which teeterson the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation. I have a feeling that this hassomething to do with that in the long-run, but it took 4-5 days to show its ugly face. But at leastwe didn't choose to plow over the entirety of the rainforest. That apparently causes the following:economy goes up two points, deaths form natural causes go up 7 percent and taxes fall by1/8th.][Option 1 = the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry(Economy +2, Eco-friendliness -2, Tourism -26); Option 2 = tourists from around the world cometo visit the country's famous rainforests (Eco-Friendliness +1, Income Taxes +1%).]#028: Cancer Sufferer Demands Euthanasia BillWA Category: Inoffensive Centrist DemocracyDismissed (+1 Averageness)[IC - A statement from His Magnanimity to the Magistracy and the Landsraat: We are trulymoved by the anguish of Dorothy and the Terwilliger family. However, it is not our duty to getinvolved in such matters. Dorothy Terwilliger should be an example to us all in regards to nothaving a Living Will. We can only hope that the application of morphine dosages will keepDorothy comfortable and pain-free until the bitter end. We would ask the nation to pray for the
 
poor woman, so that God will hear our petition and grant her healing in His infinite mercy. Ourprayers are with her and her family.][Option 1 = euthanasia is legal (Civil Rights +1); Option 2 = euthanasia is illegal (Civil Rights-2); Option 3 = euthanasia is illegal??? (Civil Rights -6, Income Taxes -1%, Godlessness +1,Religiousness +3).]#022: Nazi Sympathizers Plan RallyWA Category: Inoffensive Centrist DemocracyOption 2: Following new legislation in Kritarchy Kolumbes, the tenet of free speech is held dear.(+Civil Rights)[IC - A statement from His Magnanimity to the Magistracy and the Landsraat: As much as wecan't sympathize with these confused men and women, the Kritarchy Kolumbes is built on theright to free speech. Our esteemed bodies politic will uphold the Concordance, the Charter of Liberties and the tenets therein.][Option 1 = it is illegal to make racist remarks in public (Political Freedoms -8, Averageness -2);Option 2 can provide Political Freedoms +21.]#013: Too Much Yakking, Already, Say DelegationWA Category: Inoffensive Centrist DemocracyDismissed (+1 Averageness)[IC - A statement from His Magnanimity to the Magistracy and the Landsraat: Free speechincludes that your religious beliefs can be mocked as much as it allows controversial topics to beexplored, challenged, and discussed in an open forum. It is not the government's duty to getinvolved in a topic that could best be handled in the private with the help of all members of society.][Option 1 = the right to free speech is being drastically curtailed (Civil Rights -2); Option 2 =<nation's> children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region (CivilRights +1); Option 3 = It is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs (Civil Rights -2, IncomeTaxes +1%).]#017: Corporations Demand Political SayWA Category: Inoffensive Centrist DemocracyDismissed (+1 Averageness)[IC - A statement from His Magnanimity to the Magistracy and the Landsraat: The results thatcome with corporations donating money to political parties and political action committees is adangerous one. The merging of Corporate influences and the State has historically led to Fascism.Persuant to case law, the corporation is a creature of the state. The internal affairs of acorporation are governed by the laws of the state in which it is formed. By allowing corporationsleeway in donating money can, in the long-run, cause the creation to take over its creator.Though we allow the major corporations a say within the Magistracy, through its Eparchs, eventhese magistrates are held to high standards to represent their assigned corporations ascitizens.][Option 1 = corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians (Income Taxes -1%,Political Freedoms +20, Economy +8 (second case was +57), Corruption +3); Option 2 =political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations (Economy -37,Political Freedoms -15, Income Taxes +4%, Corruption -2); Option 3 = a dictator has seizedpower and outlawed elections (Civil rights -57, Ideological Radicality +5, Happiness -2).]#007: Animal Liberation Front Strikes AgainWA Category: Inoffensive Centrist DemocracyOption 1: Following new legislation in Kritarchy Kolumbes, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed. (-Political Freedom, +2% Worker Enthusiasm Rate)[IC - A statement from His Magnanimity to the Magistracy and the Landsraat: There's a lawfulway, and then there's an unlawful way. We cannot condone the actions of Animal LiberationFront. This is a country of the law, by the law, and for the law. Animal Liberation Front's harmfulactivity can only result in price claims, and the actions of its individual members in torts. It is forthe private sector to comprehend the right way of following business practices that are bothhealthy, humane and efficient whilst remaining profitable. Let the creativity of businesspeopleand the ingenuity of our intelligensia meet, and perhaps a bargain could've been struck throughfree-range chicken raising or even permaculture practices.][OOC: Does not seem worth it. My first instinct was to dismiss this issue. Rule 1: If it doesn'tconcern the government then dismiss it.][Option 1 can provide Political Freedoms -5 & Civil Rights -4; Option 2 = meat-eating is frowned
 
upon; Option 3 = vegetarianism is compulsory; Option 4 = Meat is a luxury afforded only to thewealthy (Income Tax +2%, Social Conservatism +3, Wealth Gaps +1).]#015: More Police NeededWA Category: Inoffensive Centrist DemocracyOption 1: Following new legislation in Kritarchy Kolumbes, the police force is on a recruitmentdrive (+1% tax rate, - to Political Freedom).[IC: - From His Magnanimity: We are displeased that to remedy the current situation, of moderate crime and helping the Magistracy's police force with lack of funding and high mortalityrates, that we have to resort to these measures. This legislation will, no doubt, be very odious tothe citizenry of the Magistracy. Until the situation has stabilized we ask forgiveness of ourcitizenry in the potential of increased tax rates and the potential infringement on its politicalfreedoms. As much as it is our policy to allow freemen and citizenry to have arrest power, toreduce the crime rate themselves, as well as to reduce income tax, in order to be more in linewith the balanced principles laid out in the Concordance, we are not looking forward to the resultof this choice. The Magistracy did not come to this decision lightly.][OOC: Crime is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a highmortality rate. - I am very much displeased to be dealt this starting parameter for the KritarchyKolumbes. As much as I try to tell myself that the State has its jurisdiction and the Nation has its jurisdiction, this game seems to be based around the concept of nation-states and Nanny states.Historically speaking, the Nation-State is a new concept. If it were based on a clear separationbetween State and Nation, then our choices would be limited to only the Patropolis of Patrick, aswell as any military bases, forts, and weapon supply depots under direct control of the State.United States historical legislation shows that the Federal government had an income tax on itsemployees. Employee is derived from the French and means "government worker." Governmentworkers had an annual salary of roughly $800 (when that was actually considered a good amountof money), and anything that they received from other sources above that was subject to a taxon income. Even Postal workers were subject to an income tax. So as much as I tell myself thatthe income tax is on the government workers, history shows that legalistic undermining of thelaw can easily ensnare hapless folk into becoming government workers without them evenknowing. I sincerely hope that there will be future issues to increase Political Freedom once moreas well as to reduce the tax rate, but at this rate my country seems to be already circling thedrain of communism and dictatorship.][Option 1 can provide Safety +2 & Safety from crime +1; Option 2 = education and welfarespending are on the rise (Income Tax +4%); Option 3 = Thieves are flogged in public for theircrimes (Civil Rights -1, Political Freedoms -23, Income Tax +1).][Note: The game will add 'thanks to a well-funded police force' to the Overview, but in this case ittook almost two months to show up - partially due to crime and because other governmentexpenditures took precedence over Law & Order.]#019: @@NAME@@ Awash With Red-Rimmed EyesWA Category: Inoffensive Centrist DemocracyDismissed (+1 Averageness)[IC - Statement of His Magnanimity to the Magistracy and Landsraat: It is our humble opinionthat such an issue could best be addressed by the private sector by the creation of cannabiscafes like in the capital of the Netherlands (Amsterdam), as well as Portland, Oregon. It is notour duty to get involved in these issues. If the freemen and citizenry are aghast by the publicsmoking of cannabis, it is the duty of individual business owners to put up "No Smoking" signsand place such matters in their hiring/work policies.][Option 1 = marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home (Civil Rights -2); Option 2 = allrecreational drugs are legal (Civil Rights +7, Recreational Drug Use +100).]#026: Compulsory Organ Harvesting ProposedWA Category: Left-Leaning College StateOption 2: Following new legislation in Kritarchy Kolumbes, organ donation rates are among thelowest in the region. (+Civil Rights)[IC - Statement of His Magnanimity to the Magistracy and Landsraat: For and on the record, let itbe known that our two bodies politic do not agree with the push to make organ "harvesting"either mandatory or compulsory. To allow any man's or woman's personal body parts to beforcefully taken, forcefully removed from any body cavity or other tissue, or otherwise forcefullyextracted without permission, by any organization, person, etc., short of having been sentencedto death in a court of law, is a serious breach of the most basic and fundamental civil liberties
