Contradiction/Inaccuracy in nation's description.

These are excerpts from my nation's ( basic description.

The Dominion of Toneor is...notable for its complete absence of social welfare.
...a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate...
The latter quote is, of course, the result of selecting the social welfare option in the "budget time" issue. I have selected this the last three times that issue has come up, and yet the "complete absence..." statement remains, except when my tax-rate rises high enough to merit the "punitive income tax" description instead.

It seems that making that selection for the "budget time" issue should eliminate the "complete absence" statement, as implementing a social welfare program renders it false. (By the way, what does cause that statement, anyway, if it's not the budget issue?)

I believe sentences on the 3rd paragraph reflect the choices you make on issues at hand. They happen to contradict sometimes.

Although I'm not sure if it's just a mere contradicting sentence that'll go away in a week or a problem.

National descriptions do not coincide sometimes, it's a glitch, but it happens do to the different effects of choosing a solution or dismissing an issue. It'll go away as issues choices change the national description.

For great contradiction, my buddy had this:

"Gun ownership is mandatory."
"Firearms are banned."

No wonder he was a psychotic dictatorship. :D
