Part 13Welcome to the first annual Chimerican graph dump!
It's time to take a look at what we've been able to accomplish during our first year in power.
The Military Expenses graph doesn't look all that great. Since the fissure of the Army we no longer recieve any military aid, and while expenditures are increasing again. I believe the rise in expenses are mostly due to losses from attacks from contras, as we elected to keep the military spending at the current level.
The Social Spending graph reflects our heavy investment into infrastructure, while the levels of health care and education remain low. The cost of the food price subsidies are quickly ramping up, now at around 2.5 billion chimeras.
The infant mortality graph is still depressing. Will probably have to bring health care up on the agenda soon.
The land reform is slowly taking effect. As you can see all of the land previously owned by the Farsantes is still held by the state. Something should be done about that too, perhaps. This is actually pretty odd. The agriculture ministers are usually quite insistent on dealing with this issue, but it seems Father Julio isn't too concerned about it. (the main difference between the characters within each party are the issues they tend to bring up as ministers)
While food production remains stable, at least the people are eating a lot better than before. We've done some good, at least
The production of our main export, cotton, seems to be decreasing somewhat. Possibly as an effect of the land reform and making the cheap labour this industry relies on more expensive. The middle-class coffee producers are doing a bit better, though. I'm not sure, this might be due to our national marketing board but don't quote me on it.
The earnings graph tells us the same thing.
While our debts continue to increase, the National Bank is at least beginning to amass a small currency reserve.
Finally, the Loans and Aids graph is a bit of a mess (white on white isn't always the best choice), it gives a decent picture of the inflow of money. It seems the US is still giving us some spare change even though they are a bit cross with us.
So, with all these data in your mind, feel free to discuss. What do you think should be the focus of the Fernandes Maria Corrigo government for the next year? I'll do my best to take your opinions into account.
