MrPotatoTed Posted September 2, 2022 Share Posted September 2, 2022 As @vcczar asked us to do in the chat, I'm taking an extreme speed run of the future era. Not particularly following the rules at all, skipping most phases, just testing out event chains. Making up rules for how to super-quick simulate the things that matter. 2024: Republican South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem becomes the first female President of the United States. Ohio Senator Rob Portman is her Vice President. Republicans take the Senate but Democrats still have the House. - Devastating hurricane hits Puerto Rico. - Scandalous President: Noem's scandals will lead to re-election challenges. - Calls for "Return to Normalcy" - Major Oil Spill - Major Economic Protests -- Quality of Life falls to (4) - FBI moves in on major criminal enterprise...but it backfires. -1 Domestic Stability (4) - Half the animals that existed in 2020 are extinct (Note to @vcczar This needs some kind of prereq, this is the second test where half the animals on Earth are dropping dead in two years. Haha). - Rising Sea Levels make the Gulf Coast Cities uninhabitable. Economic stability drops to a Great Recession. - US Supreme Court Building Renamed after a Conservative justice - Rename Veterans Affairs Building after Conservative General - Rename Capital Reflecting Pool after Conservative President 2026: Democrats keep the House and retake the Senate. - Montana hit by major drought - Race Riots -- Domestic Stability falls by 2 (2, threats of rebellion!) - Climate control technology becomes available! - Rename the White House - Ban Crypto and other digital currencies -- Economic Stability +1 into a recession. - Mandate Self-Driving Cars by Banning Human-Driven Cars - Create Universal Federal ID with Mandate - Rename the Building that Houses the US Dept of Energy - Direct Democracy In The Post Internet World -- Honest Government +1 2028: Joe Sestak-Evan Bayh vs. Noem-Portman: Noem is re-elected, and wins the House and Senate! 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
