Supporting a politician who wants peace, health, and prosperity may be a good idea.
Appearance and In-game Effects
The money paid by the player goes to support the campaign of a political representative who will defend the interests of the local community in various ways. Once the money is paid, a mailbox will appear near the player’s hut.
When the mailbox is clicked, an info box will appear.
The representative has various functions:
- The Crop Insurance project, for which the representative is a pre-requisite, can now be purchased.
- A representative protects the players against the Raid By Guerilla Forces event, so the player won’t lose equipment, livestock, and money from those.
- A representative protects against the Corrupt Officials event, so the player won’t lose his savings.
In order to win the game, the player must complete all six projects, including supporting a representative.
