NationStates - Getting Bad Rep For Every Issue?
Ever get that feels when you get an issue, and make a decision, and no matter what decision you make, it's like the system shits on you?
There's a drought, I get two choices, ration the hell out of water, kids get the same as adults. Or pipe it in from the Region and pay for it.
Following new legislation in Magna Aequitas, almost all of Magna Aequitas's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. (Everyone got pissy)
Violent pro-tests are being held everywhere, especially the government building. Voting has been outlawed (Okay, so I didn't outlaw it, I just said, lemme make the choices, and it was a shit system message). They are throwing eggs, signs, other objects. They threaten "If you don't make it legal for voting we'll.... throw more eggs." Well, they are causing a danger to others. (Also, everything in my Nation is literally free for my people, so they aren't forced to do much and so far, not any serious problems). I choose to end the riots.
Following new legislation in Magna Aequitas, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence. (Rights went down)
My Government handles everything. Education, Welfare, Medical, everything, and gives it surplus of money when and if needed (Technically, they don't give them money, they buy stuff from out of the Nation when the places ask), so there basically is no private sector. This time, some "Capitalist hog" (That's the system describing them), demanded, harshly, to give back privatising, big profit, etc. for the automible industry. I chose to keep the private industry out and have the government personally improve the vehicles.
Following new legislation in Magna Aequitas, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence.
This was easy. Immigrants and others were seeking sanctuary and wanted to live in my Nation. I said yes.
Following new legislation in Magna Aequitas, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities. (Everyone got rage pissy, especially the upper class people, who are really people who just claim to be upper class and look and sound it)
The only real good one. The Library were asking for more funding, I said yes, give them all they need.
Following new legislation in Magna Aequitas, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. (Everyone shut their mouths and smiled)
I love sitting in the lounge, reading a book, and relaxing in the hot bubbles in my Libraries.
