Welcome to POLITICS.

This is an elaborate game which simulates the workings of a society and government in simplification. If you have any disagreements with how I order it, chill-out, it's just a game and I put a lot of time into fine-tuning it. Your goal in the game is to increase your "standard of living" units as high as you can until we all get bored with it or we completely fail in creating a working society.

The style of government is to be a Representative Democracy in which players are split into "districts" and each district elects a representative. The representatives will then create and vote on legislation. The government will act like it's own entity, as if another player, that may buy and sell things. Elections will be held once a week.

Every player has a few things they need to keep track of:

Do not expect me to keep track of these for you.

1. Wealth-level
5 players will start out with 10 wealth-units, 5 players will start out with 100 wealth-units and 10 players will start out with 50 wealth-units. All are chosen randomly. The government has infinite wealth-units since it is able to create them out of thin air, however this devalues the purchasing power of each unit(inflation). Wealth-units are needed to buy need-units, luxury-units and business-units, as well as pay any taxes. Wealth-units can be acquired through having business-units or being a worker. Income from your business or job is received once per day(An actual day. An international time will be set up). You can only be a worker to one business at a time.

2. Needs-level

Everyone's needs-level will start out full (10) at the beginning of the game. The government does not use this feature. Keeping your needs-level high is the biggest factor in your standard of living. You lose 1 need-unit per day. If your needs-level reaches 0 you die.

3. Luxury-level

Everyone's luxury-level starts out at empty. The luxury-level can never be full. The government does not use this feature. The luxury-level plays a factor in your standard of living.

4. Business-level

5 of the 10 people who start out with 50 wealth-units will start out with 2 business-units(the small-businessmen). 2 of the 5 people who start out with 100 wealth-units will start out with 5 business-units(the big-businessmen). All are randomly selected. The government starts out with 1 business-unit(just for a basic police force). Everyone else starts out with 0 business-units. If you have at least 1 business-unit, you are able to hire workers. Workers agree to work for a wage of wealth-units you give them. Once a day you are given the choice of producing 2 luxury-units for every 1 worker and for every 1 business-unit, 1 needs-units for every 1 worker and every 1 business-unit or 1 business-unit for every 5 workers and 5 business-units. You are able to choose a price of wealth-units for any units you produce.

5. Standard of living.

Standard of living = (needs x 2) + luxury.

How crime works:

At any point in the game you may tell me in a private message if you would like to steal from someone or murder someone. For theft, there is a certain changeable percentage of chance for being successful or being caught and, for murder, there is a 50% percent chance for the person surviving as well as a certain changeable percentage of chance of being caught. Those changeable percentages of chance are based on how much spending the government throws at crime prevention. With a level 1 police force there is a 50% chance for the criminals to be caught and it costs hiring 1 worker(police officer) and using 1 business-unit. For every next level, hiring 1 more worker and using 1 more business-unit, it increases the rate of catching criminals by 5%. However, it won't go higher than level 5.

Sign-up

As soon as we have reached 20 people, messages will be sent to everyone describing their economic status, it will also be a message for you to ask me questions about the game. Separate messages will be sent out for every district(5 groups of 4 people) and they shall decide who will be their representative. A new thread will be made for the game. The thread here will be for non-gameplay discussion. The new government will be given time to set up a basic structure and then the game will begin.

By signing your name you are agreeing to be an active participant in the game. If you become inactive for an extended period of time you will be replaced.
