Tax problems

07-02-2005, 22:54
My state is supposed to be ruled like a company-friendly pro-capitalism country where only the dollars counts. However, it doesn´t matter how much I try to keep up this pro business attitude, because the tax continuesly rises.

When I started to RP my country the income tax was around 25%. Today it´s 45%! I feels pretty pointless to RP my country if the taxes are going up anyway, even if I try to avoid it.

Admin: What the hell should I do? I know that the creator of this RPG is pro-socialist but just because he is it, I don´t want to be forced to RP my country as a communist state.

Your yaxes, economy, civil rights...etc are based on teh decisions you make on the issues you receive!! If you increse military spending (for example), your taxes will rise!! If you want less taxes, you want to maybe fund projects that do not require much money, or just not funding them at all!! Hope this helps...

Ok, lay off the exclamation points, please...

But Heil is correct. Whenever you answer an issue in a way that makes the government spend more money on something, your taxes will go up to pay for it. Don't worry about it too much - it's very difficult to keep taxes low, and even if they do happen to reach 100%, you recieve an issue that allows you to dock taxes considerably.

Yes, I just reached 100% taxes, and I got an issue about it...
What they write in your nation description afterwrads is quite interesting.

Everything is exaggerated a little. Well, okay, a lot. Your decisions affect your nation very strongly, so your country might seem like a more extreme version of what you were aiming for. Unless you have radical politics. In which case you probably think nothing's wrong.

My decision had unintended consequences!

Yep, that'll happen. For one thing, see "Why is my nation so weird?" above. For another, pretty much every decision you make will involve a trade-off of some kind. It's kind of an exercise in choosing the best of a bunch of bad options. You might find this frustrating, especially if you're the kind of person who thinks the solutions to all the world's problems are obvious.Just the FAQs, ma'am.
