In this game, you are a citizen of the United States who lives in a city.

You are one of nine citizens who survive by earning money to boost their health .

Each round, the citizens set out on their own to find jobs that earn them money. Afterwards, they meet to vote for the next president based on each candidate's policy for taxing income.

You will be one of the citizens and the other eight citizens will be played by the computer. The computer will make decisions for the citizens similar to how people make decisions in this game.

At the end of the game, you will earn 1 cent per point of your final health score. This money will be paid to you as a bonus through your panel company.

Searching for Jobs

Each round you search for jobs by clicking on job ads.

Some rounds, you find jobs with a low pay of $25, and some rounds you find jobs with a high pay of $50. To be exact, you have a 50% chance of earning $25 and a 50% chance of earning $50. The computer will use these chances to determine how much money you earn each round.

When you find jobs, your earnings appear in your bank account.



You will start with 60 health points.

Each round, your health decreases by 35 health points from the energy your body consumes through metabolism.

You can add to your health points by consuming food that you buy with money. Each dollar adds 1 health point.


Voting and Taxes

After the citizens search for jobs, they hold a national election to vote on the next president. Each candidate proposes a different tax policy that will be enacted if they are elected.

There are two candidates on the ballot:

The candidate that receives the most votes is elected president and their tax rule is enacted. The rule is automatically applied to all of the citizens by deducting money from each citizen's bank account according to the rule.


Distributing Benefits and Buying Food

After voting, the money collected by the government is divided equally among the nine citizens and distributed to their bank accounts.

At the end of the round, each citizen spends their money on food to gain health points. Then they continue to the next round for a total of 10 rounds.
