Dont know if its a bug or a special feature but i sincerely doubt that its OK…
If you play UK with standart rules:
- 4 years term,
- no term limit,
- no hurricanes,
- no earthquakes,
- no compulsatory voting,
- with monarchy,
- 100% difficulty level,
- 40% political apathy,
- Socialism and Liberalism 100% both
and take as a rule for yourself to do COMPLETELY NOTHING (and i mean it - dont initiate ANY laws, dont use ANY of your political power at any given time) then your economy will be almost 100 Bn profitable (sometimes even during the global crisis). Dont mind high unemployement ratings, just chill out. Always say ‘‘positive’’ or ‘‘allow’’ or ‘‘do nothing’’ to any Urgent Policy Question.
As a result you will have a profitable stable UK ecomony, high levels of payed via government unemployement rate, will be reelected 2 or 3 times (WHILE DOING NOTHING) and MINIMUM level of crime. Seriously. Citizens of UK must drink tea all day, take their dole and do nothing as well. Not even wake up their lazy buttocks to rob nearby bank because of their lazyness.
Just kidding, its propably just a bug ;D
When i tried this DO NOTHING strategy with USA i got killed in about 16 months or so. Even quicker with Canada. Which is fine. But is the UK some kind of prank inside this game?))
As a proof for my words - here’s a video of me doing that on a lifestream (and hey, sorry for russian lanquage and mistakes in grammar):
