State Policy

State Policy defines a broad and deliberate set of plans that guide decision making. Players have a wide variety of policy options available. However, to represent the slow and institutional process of policy-making, only one change to policy can be made once every game year (one ordinary month).

I. The Basics: Making Policy

While there are many categories to policy, each has three broad options (with the exception of religion). The options are liberal, moderate, and conservative. The options represent different ideological viewpoints of the policy in question. When a particular option is selected, it will have specific system effects. The policies are not dependent on one another, so it is possible to mix and match liberal, moderate, and conservative policies.
