    April Updates

    Major Changes
    Taxes :
    Taxes will now be charged in up to three ways and can be set / updated live by the Minister of Plenty.
    (1) Income Tax : This is automatically deducted from your paycheck issued by Oceania if you make more than $50 a paycheck. The default is 5%
    (2) Wealth Tax : This automatically accesses your net worth and deducts a percentage of money based on which wealth bracket you are in. The wealthier you are, the lower the percentage you will be taxed this is a balancing technique to ensure the wealthy aren't made too poor the longer they play. The default is 5%
    (3) Property Tax: This takes the value of property you own and charges you a rate . The default is 25%

    Income will be assigned by class rather than faction. More advance classes / leadership roles will earn more than the entry level spots. Degenerates will only get a small stipend for purposes of obtaining food.

    Rations (Coming Soon) :
    Those with valid ID will be able to obtain basic rations issued by the Ministry of Plenty for purposes of needed necessities.
