In the wake of the Tax Evasion situation (a vital facet of the game) getting another look in the latest patch, absorbing more inputs and becoming more challenging, I’d like to again point out how wild the Illegal Immigration situation is.
It’s super strong, seems to affect everything, and can single-handedly tank unemployment. It’s like Trump-era logic. The solution to it is literally the damn wall.
It’s not affected by ID cards, drones (presumably patrolling the borders), or other law and order funding, and there’s no long-term solution to re-stabilising the wartorn and deprived places where refugees and impoverished people are desperate to leave. Nor can you agree to immigration quotas with allied countries to equalise the flow into your own nation to ensure resettlement without dooming the immigrant.
I’d love to see a global stability simulation, affected by global economy and carbon emissions, which can be improved with foreign aid, peacekeeping intervention, and multilateral agreements, which influences the rate of immigration, rather than simply simulating the refugee crisis we’re currently in as if it were an evergreen reality.
If a single country can fix climate change and go to Mars in this game, I think immigration ought to be fixable without ultraconservative rhetoric.
