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.
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.
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.
I was being slightly sarcastic.
