The Citizen's Republic of Corulag
House Bill 32-1

Presented to the House of Citizens
On behalf of the Prime Minister


Curamelle City, Corulag - The House of Citizens
Parliament passes HB32-1, authorizing small business grants, unanimously

Corulag has long been known for the luxury goods it exports throughout the core and in civilized corners of the galaxy.  Today, the House of Citizens, voted unanimously to approve  HB32-1 authorizing a new small business grant program intended to inspire growth and diversification in the luxury goods market.

With many worlds throughout the Republic refocusing their economies on industrial goods and war provisions the time is ripe for Corulag to assert dominance in the trade of those goods which may become more scarce in the future.  The grant program will enable artists, craftsmen, and various creative entrepreneurs to open new workshops and studios to produce goods for export.

Individuals wishing to open new studios and workshops will be eligible for an initial grant to finance the creation of sample products, which if approved for export by the Ministry of Culture, will unlock additional grant funding for the creation of permanent facilities to continue manufacture of the goods. The third and final tier of grants is reserved for artisans who begin successfully exporting luxury goods to allow them to expand their staffing and increase production. The nature of the program is designed to limit grant accessibility to individuals and small enterprises and not existing producers.

The bill authorizes the Minister of the Interior and the Ministry of Culture to establish grant offices, hire personnel, advertise the program, issue grants, review proposals, and approve advancement through the three tiers of grant funding. The program budget allocates funding over a ten year period, with 1,000,000,000 credits in total funding. Because of the limited window of funding availability the government hopes to avoid the creation of a new permanent bureaucracy or infrastructure costs.

Action expectations:
Decrease in treasury of 1,000,000,000 credits
Increase in GDP as production of Luxury Goods increases
Note: This is a random example of an action. I do not claim that it is a particularly good or bad action. But if you need help figuring out what to include in an action because you've never written one before or because it's been a long time since you last wrote one... Here is an example from something I wrote last round.

This action benefits from doubling both as a summary of what I was trying to achieve and as an article that could be posted by the avatar team to the Holonet News. It also summarizes the expected results at the bottom, which the avatar team is free to edit when processing the results of the action. After results have been posted you should note the changes in any ledgers you are keeping (particularly if the results include changes to your treasury or OOB).

As the Head Admin for Round 31 it is my preference that each action you submit be a new thread, rather then part of a single thread for all actions, as I do not like having to scroll through long threads looking for specific posts. This expectation may differ with future Admins, but shall be the norm for this round. Further, I recommend (and may require) that you keep a ledger of all actions submitted with links to the posts so that it is easy for the avatar team (or a new player taking over your planet) to review what you have done previously.
