[DRAFT] In For A Penny, In For A @@CURRENCY@@

Postby Daarwyrth » Wed Jun 23, 2021 4:49 pm

[Title] In For A Penny, In For A @@CURRENCY@@

[Validity] Has low Economy

[Description] With every third immigrant in @@REGION@@ being an economic refugee from @@NAME@@, several well-to-do nations have found it in their collective hearts to take pity on the sorry state of the @@DEMONYMADJECTIVE@@ economy, and offer various aid plans. All wholly without self-interest, of course...

[Option 1] "A series of loans over the course of several years, which you'll have to invest in infrastructure, the labour market, expansion of sea and airports, the usual shebang to jumpstart an economy," says the Brancalandian Minister of Finance benignly. "Once you've been pulled out of the muck of economic stagnation, you'll pay us back. With interest, of course, heh. Oh, and we do want free travel rights for our citizens. One-way street, of course, you understand... Now, do we have a deal?"

[Effect 1] Brancalandian tourists love to remind @@DEMONYMPLURAL@@ how much they owe them

[Option 2] "But their offer would make you a slave to their whims!" interjects the diplomat from Marche Blanche a little too aghast. "No, listen to this: our nation's businesses are looking to spread their wings in search for new nesting sites, and we believe your lovely @@NAME@@ is just the spot we need. Our companies will bring you wealth and labour opportunities, and all we ask is that you lower your minimum wage laws, and don't look too much in the direction of curbing pollution. It's a win-win for us! Err, I mean, the both of us, heh."

[Effect 2] Marche Blanchers just can't believe why @@NAME@@ can be so environmentally unsustainable

[Option 3a] "Don't listen to those greedy, capitalist pigs!" bellows an East Lebatuckese general gregariously, while slapping you on the back, and hard. "Listen, Comrade, we're both cut from the same red wood. Nations like ours need to strand strong in socialist solidarity, especially when times are hard. We'll help you in rebuilding your shattered economy by sending some of our experts to educate, guide and train your people. You'll just agree to a few little missile silos placed on your territory, pointed at the United Federation, yes? It's simple, it's good!"
[Validity] Has Socialism

[Option 3a] the @@DEMONYMADJECTIVE@@ economy went nuclear

[Option 3b] "Ah, these rats have it all wrong!" shouts the ambassador from the United Federation after having been told the vending machines in your office building are out of stock. "What you need is more competition on your internal market, and healthy amounts of it, too! We'll send some of our people over to help you set up a proper, free-market capitalist paradise, but you know the rules: tit for tat. We help you out of your mess, you hold some of our missile silos pointed at those commie fiends over in East Lebatuck, and all problems are solved, yes?"
[Validity] Has Capitalism

[Option 3b] the @@DEMONYMADJECTIVE@@ economy went nuclear

[Option 4] "We don't need no help from anybody here," declares your Minister of Economics, while patching @@HIS@@ already badly tattered suit. "All we need is to put more effort into keeping our people in, and workin' hard. Put a looot of patrols out there along our borders, and round up anyone that sits on their bum doin' nothin', and put 'em to work. The more critters we put on a treadmill, the faster our economy's gonna spin."

We help you out of your mess, you hold some of our missile silos pointed at your commie friends in East Lebatuck, and all problems are solved, yes?"

The capitalism/socialism options are going to get chosen more often if you align them with the nation's current policies, rather than the other way around. Fewer players are going to be willing to simultaneously rework their entire economic system and let a foreign power build missile silos in their nation than just one or the other.

A bit of a long pause in-between, but I have taken over your suggestion and worked it into the draft! Both versions of option 3 now align with the nation's current economic system :) as such, new feedback and commentary would be most appreciated!

(Commenting from an alt, apologies) That would be addressed by the current option 4 :)
