YOU HAVE JUST BEEN ELECTED PREMIER OF SETUTS DETINU , A SMALL COMMUNIST ISLAND
30 BY 70 MILES LONG.  YOUR JOB IS TO DECIDE UPON THE COUNTRY'S BUDGET AND TO
DISTRIBUTE MONEY TO YOUR COUNTRYMEN FROM THE COMMUNAL TREASURY.

THE MONEY SYSTEM IS RALLODS AND EACH PERSON NEEDS 100 RALLODS PER YEAR TO 
SURVIVE.

YOUR COUNTRY'S INCOME COMES FROM FARM PRODUCE AND THE TOURISTS THAT VISIT YOUR
MAGNIFICIENT FORESTS; HUNTING, FISHING, ETC.  HALF OF YOUR LAND IS FARM LAND,
WHICH ALSO HAS EXCELLENT MINERAL CONTENT AND MAY BE SOLD TO FOREIGN INDUSTRY
FOR STRIP MINING. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS WREAKS THE LAND FOR ALL OTHER USES, AND
IN ADDITION, THESE FOREIGN INTERESTS IMPORT ( AND SUPPORT ) THEIR OWN LABOR
SUPPLY.

IT COSTS YOU BETWEEN 10 AND 15 RALLODS PER SQ. MILE TO PLANT CROPS.

YOUR GOAL IS TO COMPLETE AN 8 YEAR TERM OF OFFICE ...  GOOD LUCK !!
