Moved to Technical since it seems like it's talking about NS policies rather than RL political systems.

Also, just a heads up that we aren't looking to add every possible policy because we don't want to overcomplicate the game.

Also maybe a 2nd Amendment kinda policy, because Gun Control is available

Maybe if you become a "father Knows best state" or if both freedoms are under a certian number? Like 30 out of 100?

I don't think that just because someone falls there they should get a fascism policy, they don't have to be there to be a fascist and fascists aren't always there

There are currently no issues for creating or abolishing a central bank. If you want there to be a policy about that, the first step is to write an issue that addresses the question in its narrative. Then, if it gets accepted, the editors will decide whether your decision on that issue is important enough to be worth tracking as a policy.

Right, but the better your policy idea meshes with the issues game, the more likely it is to actually get implemented. Trott has a point.

Policies are imposed or repealed by issues decisions, so if you can either explain how your policy suggestion would tie in with issues, or if you can write issues that would activate and repeal it, that's a lot more useful than just suggesting "We should have a policy about X!"

There is a policy for mandatory gun control. Voluntary gun ownership is unfortunately the default without a policy flag, so we don't get a pretty banner :C

Yeah, don't do that. Add content or make new suggestions, fine. Trying to keep your generic "ideas" thread open with a bump, not so much. If people wanted to contribute, they had plenty of opportunity already.

Policies were initially created for backstage purposes only, in order to create more consistent narratives where player decisions later give access to or lock out other issues. They later became player-visible, but were never intended for this purpose, so they don't always turn on and off when you might expect.

New policies are added by the editing team when the issues demand it, not on a basis of a decision's notability in a nation's fiction. For example, we track the fine detail of whether a nation has dinosaurs AND whether a nation has a dinosaur theme park, because there are issues where the distinction is important. Likewise there's a code to track if players chose to personally go to ground zero in the first issue of The Enemy Within chain, as that affects some future narratives.

On the other hand, we don't track whether a minimum wage has been implemented or not, because no issue options need to check against this information. The presence or absence of a minimum wage is a much more notable feature of a nation than the things just mentioned, but notability is not the criterion by which we create policies.

For a policy to be created, it needs to have an Issue that lets you choose that policy direction. For us to code it as a tracked policy, it needs to have places elsewhere in the narrative that want to reference and track that. Also, of course, adding a new policy takes a while for each policy, as the adding editor then needs to reread all 1000+ issues to spot places where the new policy would affect existing narratives, and edit accordingly.

So basically, there is absolutely no point to players suggesting policies in the fora. The game isn't built in a way where suggestions of that sort will be implemented, ever.

If you want to see a particular policy in the game, the thing to do is to write a good quality issue which depends upon a past decision to affect how it is depicted. That's the only approach that will make a change, so come over to Got Issues, and get drafting!
