Like any modern election campaign, finances will play a big role in your day-to-day electioneering. Raising funds is a big part of your candidate's role, and you will find yourself crisscrossing the islands to empty the pockets of the wealthy in a 'good' cause. Of course, it's no good raising money if you don't intend to spend it, but the choice between campaigning and bribery is one that only you can make.
Don't think you have to play the part of 'goody-two-shoes' Mousey, you can play Political Animals any way you want. Fill your campaign team with thugs and agents that will intimidate the opposition, blockade them from entering certain districts, or maybe if you prefer a subtler form of corruption, fabricate some press scandals to ruin your opponent's image. After all, all's fair in love, war and politics right?
