10 TIPS FOR GETTING STARTED
FROM FIDEL WASHINGSKY
"I've been around for 60 years—and I'm still here. During this time I've seen presidents fall flat on their face in no time at all. Here are 10 tips to avoid getting trapped."
1-Increase the head of state's security budget as much as possible. It's a bit costly, but you can prevent extremists from violently reacting to your initiatives.
2-You want to make your population happy. But proceed carefully—there are limits to the budget deficit, bankruptcy is looming over you!
3-The secret service is great! But it's a double-edge sword. It could spark a scandal . . .
4-Beware of negative consequences. For example, a cut in income taxes is popular among those who pay it, but angers leftist parties that prefer distributive taxes.
5-Don't sell at a loss! Selling contracts off cheaply can bring down your economy!
6-Don't sell below your production cost on activities that require raw materials (for example: automobile construction, which requires steel). This could turn out to be really costly.
7-Be careful about annexing a country! Annexing a country that is very different from yours could make unification a real problem for your budget. Opt for a colony. But if the territory to be annexed is small, it's not a problem.
8-Beware of your ministers. They could spark scandals. Trust me, it wouldn't be the first time! A little preliminary secret service investigation wouldn't do any harm . . .
9-Are you in an awkward position at the UN? Play a permanent UN member. This way you can veto resolutions that go against your interests!
10-In Competition mode, feel free to arrange meetings with other players. You can hold confidential chats with them, away from the prying eyes of other players.
And if you're losing too much, change the difficultly level.
