The objective of this game is to manage your country in a post-apocalyptic world. To do this, you must keep all four gauges, (marked by a plant, a person, a gun, and a dollar sign) managed. They must never reach the minimum or maximum, otherwise you die.
If the health (plant) gauge reaches minimum, you will die from radiation. If maximum, the minister of health may publicly denounce you. If the well-being (person) gauge reaches minimum, you will be executed in a revolt. If maximum, you may die of an unknown disease. If the army (gun) gauge reaches minimum, you will be invaded. If maximum, you may be defeated by the general. If you run out of money, your head will be sold. And finally, if the money gauge reaches maximum, the banks may take over.
There are certain ways to avoid this, once. Investing money into a special corps "Foxhound" will save you from revolt, the minister of health, the general, and the banks.
