Pony Lands Regional Message Board
Well...we do have a non-executive WA position. Kind of hard to invade if there is no powerful psoition to take over.
They can post awful jokes on the RMB. I'd have to go back to Psychotic Dictatorships.
"The solution is simple and something we should have been doing all along," states your Minister of the Environment, Lars Gutenberg, "We have acres upon acres of land that is tied up in landfills. If we compost, compress, recycle, we can use the newly-cleaned land to build eco-friendly housing developments. Yes, it'll require a lot of funding, and there's bound to be at least a little residual smell. People won't be happy about it, but I guarantee they'll be a damn sight happier than they'd be on the streets!"
Eco-friendly housing? You mean the glorified huts the grasschewers in the multiple Equestrias live in? Not a chance.
"Of course the enviro-nutjob wants to clean up the landfills, but that's not the issue!" says your Minister of Finance, Marleen Hernandez. "Why spend all that money fixing up land that already has a purpose when we've got plenty of worthless national parks? We could start construction sooner, get people moved in sooner, and fix this problem sooner. We could even use the resources in the parks to furnish the houses. It'd give our timber industry a much needed boost. I'm sure the hippies will moan about how that'll destroy a bunch of 'delicate habitats', but it's simply progress, Amethyst."
I... I'm not sure what's worse, that one of my staff is a capitalist, or that I can't actually come up with a reason to refuse this proposal other than "she's a dirty capitalist." Surely she's done something amoral, something to discredit her advice. It's in her evil capitalist genes!
"You're all not thinking this through!" yells the CEO of Yellowcake Depot, Evan Wilson. "We've still got plenty of land. We've only used the top of it after all. Let's expand our cities underground. Look at the perks: there's plenty of space, they'll naturally stay at a steady temperature, and – most importantly – think of all the untapped uranium ore down there! Talk about an economic boom! Sure, people might get a little depressed without the sun and there's always a slight risk of a cave in, but we'll send down shrinks, sun lamps and throw up a few extra buttresses to be safe."
I'm tempted to agree this just because, for some reason, there are no windows in my pala-- I mean home and workplace, so I may a well be underground. And I can't leave for my own "security" because my bodyguards are idiots.
Yes, you! You're an idiot and I'd fire you if you wouldn't be replaced in an hour by somebody just as stupid and less experienced!
"I have a much, much more palatable solution," assures your Minister of Internal Expansion, rubbing his hands together greedily. "Let's expand our coasts. How do we do that you ask? Simple, we reclaim it from the surrounding seas. All we need to do is build levees and dikes and pump out the water. It'll take some serious desalinization and a constant, reliable power source to accomplish, but it'll be worth it in the long run."
...didn't humans try that at some point? Coppermages or something?
Exactly what issue is this relating towards?
Do not mock our national motto. We take tooth brushing very seriously. All citizens are required to brush after every meal. Citizens are also required to pass a national "white teeth" test. If they pass, they get a free government-issued toothbrush. If they fail, they are sent to a dentist.
As I'm sure you know, this is all very serious business, and is nothing to joke about. Our citizens represent Almerria after all, and they are expected to have the cleanest of teeth!
#342, "This Land Was Made For You And Me."
I believe it's a new(ish) one, and I have no idea which option brings what stats, so it'll just sit in my Issues box until I decide.
Surprised there wasn't a war option. I saw a similar issue and I just invaded my neighbours!
Following new legislation in Magical Equestria, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes.
We figured that, seeing how much ponies control their environment, building dikes and polders would be the "natural" thing to do. So apparently now a good chunk of Equestria is the Neightherlands.
