TITLE: Show Me the Stonks!

DESC.: A recent recession leaves @@NAME@@ in ruin. There is also an angry mob outside your window with signs that say "SHOW US THE MONEY!"

REQUIREMENT (OPTION 1): Little (10%) to no state-owned industry
OPTION 1: @@RANDOMNAME@@, your nation's treasurer, ran up to you and yelled, "What did you do? Even the @@MAJORINDUSTRY@@ industry failed!" @@HE@@ was furious. "You know what, this could all be solved if you got rid of private industry and everything was in control of the state!"

EFFECT: All private industry is turned into state-owned industry, economic output increases
PUNCHLINE: When a tourist says "private business" in @@NAME@@, @@DEMONYMPLURAL@@ cower in fear of police arresting them.



REQUIREMENT (OPTION 2): Little (10%) to no black market
OPTION 2: A random shadowy person comes up to you and says, "Why don't you let my industry thrive? You wouldn't need to do anything," and then he ran away.

EFFECT: 25% of industry now used by black market, economic output slight decrease
PUNCHLINE: You can now buy phones for a arm and a leg- literally.



OPTION 3: @@RANDOMNAME@@ runs into your office and yells, "Why don't we invest in tourism?" Everyone turns to @@HIM@@ and nods their heads- except the one police officer at the door.

EFFECT: tourism boom, crime increase, economic output increase
PUNCHLINE: People come to @@NAME@@ to get mugged.



OPTION 4: "Ha ha," laughs @@RANDOMNAMEMALE@@, the police officer at your door. "That's a horrible idea. Why don't we remove the problem- the stock market! If you make the economy go down it will go up. We learned that last recession."

EFFECT: crime increase, economic output decrease, civil rights slight decrease, weaponization huge increase
PUNCHLINE: @@DEMONYMADJECTIVE@@ no longer believe in the police, so they started mugging even more people.

Welcome to the FOURTH Democratic Republic Morally Incorrect Republic Weirdly Unstable Republic of Doge Land, well known for our dog treats and government incompetence. We have the highest dogs:person ratio (usually 5 dogs:1 person) in the world, and that's what we're known for. Watch as the majestic Shiba Inu runs in your living room... Did I mention we had good hotels?

Well, if no one has anything else to say I'll send it in.

What Aussie is saying is that this issue (or one very similar to it) already exists in the issue base. When I get to a computer I'll find some examples, but the point is this issue is duplication.

There was no more feedback not because your issue is ready for submission, but because Aussie's feedback hasn't been addressed yet. Until you change up the premise to make it more original, then there's not much point in giving more feedback because it's unlikely to be published.
OOC: High school student who should almost definitely be doing assignments instead
  • I once wrote a 924-word analysis of how memes-as-political-commentary have a detrimental impact on many social issues. I got a 90% grade on my first draft.
  • My hobbies/interests include programming, parkour, hiking, camping, gaming, tabletop RPGs, and playing NationStates, of course
  • I seem to spend quite a bit of time explaining the effects of issue options. Good reading comprehension and a basic understanding of NS stats can work wonders, even without a backstage pass...

Okay, that makes a lot more sense now.
