[ISSUE DRAFT] The lost Violetist city

Postby La xinga » Wed Jun 03, 2020 9:47 am

Co-authored by Melicorium

ELIGIBILITY: Must not have the "Atheism" policy, due to #2, and it wouldn't make sense to leave out #2

THE ISSUE: After two centuries, explorer @@RANDOMNAME@@ has found the ancient capital of the Order of Violet in the forests of @@NAME@@, along with piles of jewels in its temple. People have been called to your office to decide what to do.

OPTION 1A: (Only for nations with the Capitalism policy) "We can make tons of @@CURRENCYPLURAL@@ off of this," says CEO of @@NAME@@ Mining Ltd., @@RANDOMNAME@@, while staring at the your sister's diamond earring. "If you would only allow my fellow colleagues and I to harvest these massive jewels, we could make millions! We should allow people to take whatever they want from historical sights and encourage them to mine and dig for buried treasure. @@NATION@@ can become more rich than ever!"
Result: @@DEMONYM@@ children play pirate all the time.

OPTION 1B: (Only for nations with the Socialism policy) "We can make tons of @@CURRENCYPLURAL@@ off of this," says your State Director of Mining, @@RANDOMNAME@@, while staring at the your sister's diamond earring. "If you would only allow my fellow comrades and I to harvest these massive jewels, we could make millions! We should allow proletarians to take whatever they want from historical sights and encourage them to make a living off of this treasure. @@NATION@@ can become more productive than ever!"
Result: @@DEMONYM@@ children play pirate all the time.

OPTION 2: "Get your hands off the holy temple jewels!" exclaims @@RANDOMNAME@@, a prominent member of the Order of Violet. "Those jewels are sacred to us Violetists, preserved from the times of dear Violet! You must give them over to us, or Violet will get her revenge!"
Result: The government is retorted and taunted for giving mountains of jewels to Violetists.

OPTION 3A: (Only for nations with the Capitalism policy) "Why can't we just leave the jewels and the ancient capital alone?" remarks @@RANDOMNAME@@, your Finance Minister. "We need to open up the area to tourists! Build amusement parks, coffee shops, and restaurants around the area, and let the money roll in!"
Result: The government turns every interesting thing into a tourist attraction.

OPTION 3B: (Only for nations with the Socialism policy) "Why can't we just leave the jewels and the ancient capital alone?" remarks @@RANDOMNAME@@, your People's Entertainment Minister. "We need to open up the area to tourists! Build amusement parks, coffee shops, and restaurants around the area, and let the workers have an enjoyable break from labor here!"
Result: The government turns every interesting thing into a tourist attraction.

No, please don't argue! I'm innocent!

Yes, we may too, may all of us be innocent.

Why would anyone choose option 1 over option 3? Option 3 will generate significantly more income

@@CURRENCY@@ in Option 1 should be @@CURRENCYPLURAL@@.

If Option 1 is about @@LEADER@@ and his friends getting rich, I'd replace @@NATION@@ with 'we' or something.

Right now, the word 'jewel' feels like a MacGuffin to keep the story alive. I'd rather have a more concrete reason (why these jewels? Which jewels exactly? What makes them important to the Violetists?) to care about this issue, but maybe that's the critic in me speaking.

It's good, but since the first option sounds too capitalist, it should have a variant for socialist nations (like me).

Now with the new version, is there anything else that is needed to be added?

By the way, it should be “my fellow comrades/colleagues and I”, not “me and my comrades/colleagues”. :/
