Guide To Politics

So, how does this whole politics thing work?

Politicians come in many forms, they can be as low as Civilians who are activists, City Council members with a cause, or as high as a President leading a colony. Political views are varied and they are completely IC and usually based on your character's background and economic class. There are distinct schools of thought that would be considered “Traditionalist” and “Reformist” might have familiar tones to real life politics but don't necessarily represent 21st century politics and are more geared towards the year the game takes place in. A character can have a multitude of different political beliefs that belong to one or the other.

These tables would show what the “core” beliefs of each group would usually be, upper class citizens usually lean on the traditionalist side whereas reformists are usually working class. Exceptions and people in-between exist.
