I've no problem with seeing a reference to her in the right issue, but probably not this one, as her opinions don't really mesh well with the feminist character presented. Considering how critical Paglia is of feminists, a character inspired by her would be opposed to the feminist character. I sugg...

As far as I know, there are no references to the great dissident feminist scholar Camille Paglia in the issues base. This is a scandal that must be corrected. Here are some highly interesting choice quotes that you might include or take inspiration from, to incorporate into an existing option or to ...

I wanted to produce a reaction in the person receiving the issue. A visceral reckoning of the atrocity being described. Option Two is the 'nuclear' reaction- a blanket capital punishment to satisfy both the Leader's and the nation's desire for vengeance. I've removed all reference to stabbings and ...

The issue has enough options. One may choose to address fully automated gay space luxury communism by writing a new issue that has such an option.

The assault is unnecessarily barbaric and far too sensational. A gang rape involving at least six men, with the woman receiving 15 stab wounds, really? This is not an accurate portrayal of sexual assault in the military. I encourage you to do some research on this topic and to edit the issue accordi...

Hope this is being helpful rather than spamming, but since these are reported semi-regularly, might it be worth modifying the OSRS to say they're not allowed? Because nothing in there says it's not. There are cases when more than one person having access to an account is useful. I'm part of a regio...

Thanks, I'll try and implement that. So speaking of 'provincesis' would be okay, then?

So I recently did the issue “Doctors orders”. The issue was about religious beliefs getting in the way of abortion. Prior to the issue my nation was a theocracy. When I chose the option to not allow abortion due to religiousness the game repealed my theocracy policy. I don’t know why this happened,...

If one does not think that their nation's leader being kissed is something that the leader should react to, then when encountering this issue, one should click the button that best reflects that view.

It is, of course, entirely possible that @@LEADER@@ is of the opposite gender from Erich. The draft was written with this in mind. It says that the other leaders are male, but does not explicitly state that the nation's leader is male. I've removed a sentence in the last option that suggests that t...

To me, the cryptid mythos works best when sightings are on the periphery, so to speak.
