I have known some people who work in the civil service, and there is a massive disconnect between reality and how a feature of this game works. The day after an election, when a whole new party, whole new cabinet, and whole new set of ministers are in change, is just another Wednesday to the civil service. The day after a cabinet shuffle is just another Thursday, and the day after a high profile resignation is just another Tuesday. For all the fireworks and fanfare of top end politics, for the paper pushers life just goes on.
I just had a game where the rare earth metals industry collapsed over night because a minister resigned, then the revenue service forgot how to collect 10s of billions of dollars because another minister resigned…I know I’ve complained about ministers a lot in the past so I won’t write much more up, but they are what makes me quit this game.
