Ben: You're getting into the "need explantion" part. If you want to be neutral, you have to be Purple.

"Why should Arts students get to lounge around reading books and watching daytime TV for hours on end, when some of our hard-working youngsters are dedicating themselves to the study of worthwhile and valuable subjects; studies which will benefit the nation as a whole?" asks Calvin Thiesen, a student engineer. "We should be grooming our young people to help, not sponge off the system. The Arts should be considered a hobby, not a career."

"You can't mean that," gasps Prof. Catherine Gratwick, renowned worldwide for her paintings of trains. "Learning should be done out of love, not duty. The Study of the Arts has been a noble field for many centuries, and learning it is not as easy as you think. I'd rather die than live in a world where creativity is stifled. We should be encouraging young artists, writers, musicians - if only to strengthen Cheesebeck's cultural reputation."

"What's the point in allowing most young people to continue in further education anyway?" enquires Buffy Chicago, a factory manager. "Surely most students would be better employed in manual and factory work? You should handpick a select few to study medicine, the law, science, and business of course, and utilise the majority of youth to increase the country's productivity in industry. Academic freedom just gets in the way of a functioning society, I've always said."

I don't know what to pick. =\

I like green better. Purple just isn't my color.

Picking it for what, Q?

-pats-

Okay, you can be green. Granted, just don't say that to anyone else. Because green isn't...well, let's just say you don't care about RvB and move on. :D

Oh, that. Y'know it actually looks interesting.

Q:...okay. Um, what's the pros/cons of each choice? If you actually need someone to help you pick.

Haha, I guess I don't. Oh well, at least I'm green.

Well, the one I picked will put people in jobs, not to mention up our production.

The Oppressed Peoples of Cheesebeck is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.135 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 19%, but much higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, all streets are privately owned toll roads, euthanasia is legal, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Cheesebeck's national animal is the hobo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the rock.

-proud- Our populatin's in the billions!

Now we just need to work on crime. -snarl-
