I have a quick question, I was hoping someone could help me with ?
I have only just purchased DMEOCARCY 3 and have been playing around with the tutorial for an hour or so and had a query regarding the TOBACCO TAX (which I am assuming the answer to may additionally aid my understanding of some other mechanics ).
From the in game screens it shows that an INCREASE in the TOBBACCO TAX affects the GROUP of EVERYONE in a NEGATIVE way ?
I find this difficult to fathom personally ?
I realise the GREEN/RED mechanic is just meant to represent a numeric INCREASE/DECREASE not a GOOD/BAD value judgement, but I fail to see how an increase in TOBBACO TAX will DECREASE the HAPPINESS of the EVERYONE GROUP ; especially considering that an INCREASE in the ALCOHOL TAX only affects the YOUTH HAPPINESS.
Is this based on some hidden percentage, ie 90% of YOUTH consume enough ALCOHOL to be affected by a TAX increase, so the entire group goes up/down ? SO in other words is the TOBBACO TAX affecting everyone because the game places a high percentage of the electorate in the smokers category or some category that is dependent on the patronage of smokers ??
BTW I am attempting to govern AUSTRALIA ATM.
I am confused
Can someone please help me out here ?
