The Dazzling Reflection of Blue Narcissus wrote:ha ha nationstates has noticed that glups are first for everything and have found a secret way for blue narcissus to be first for once.. anyhoo we all have government expenditure so since we don't have taxes where does the money come from?

Indirect taxation. Sales taxes, tariffs, things like that. Partially ownership of businesses would be more direct but this game doesn't compensate for it so it would fall under indirect. I don't even think there is an issue that deals with that circumstance. Too complex for us. We can only come up with countless redundant issues.

In my case, several business entities fight it out for political hegemony and whomever happens to "be in charge" at any given moment are considered the government.

Education is a common expense in a business association like the Mafia. It just isn't in the formal trappings you may be aware of in a traditional system.

welcome back

more training than education then

The level of education is dependent on the skill of the teacher and the curriculum, like any other.

and the aim, the spirit in which it's done

Quite. The mafia aren't about to reverse the triumph of utility in education.

The sort of intellectual challenges found there include the alphabetical writers game where the first poster says Apollonius, the next comes up with Balzac and the third decides Camus will do. Not tooooo childish - most here are over 20 - and not too demanding - most here work and shouldn't really be away from official tasks for long.

Okay... Got it...

In any case I'd wager a graduate of the school of mafia can count change about as well as their high school equivalent in the US, and they get a job, on-the-job training and valuable skills that can be used even before graduation! In some cases the state might lock a student of the mafia into an extended study period but where else can you get a quality law education for free and room and board to boot!

I like the flag.
