Autoselecting the "no official religion" choice, since there are too many magical classes in the world of Warcraft for Kul Tiras to devote itself to one.

Option 2!
* The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one.
* Kul Tiras's Civil Rights rose from "Good" to "Very Good".

Overview
The Merchant Kingdom of Kul Tiras is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Admiral Thornby with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.456 billion Tirasians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 9.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Tirasian economy, worth 61.9 trillion golds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,484 golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Lord Admiral Thornby has just been declared ruler of Kul Tiras in an international press conference, military spending recently hit a new high, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Dwarves Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kul Tiras's national animal is the mermaid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Issue: Rock 'N' Roll Suicide

The Issue
The nation is in mourning after beloved cultural icon Johnny Typhoon was found dead of apparent suicide in his westcoast beachhouse. New details have emerged that his eccentric and happy-go-lucky public persona was masking chronic depression, thrusting mental illness into the public spotlight.

1. “Clearly, Mr. Typhoon was suffering from severe depression,” says world-renowned psychiatrist Dr. Wil Steele. “This is symptomatic of a deep-seated epidemic of unreported mental illness across the Eastern Kingdoms. Mental health services have been underfunded for decades, and it is about time that the government stepped in to provide proper mental healthcare for the nation. We desperately need evidence based CBT, more psychiatrists, and proper education to finally rid ourselves of this stigma surrounding mental health. You can’t put a price on the nation’s wellbeing.”

2. “Johnny Typhoon’s death is a tragedy, but we all know his songs contained subliminal pro-suicide messages,” says moral crusader Marina Bergot, who is well known for egging blasphemers and burning effigies of politicians. “People across Kul Tiras now know that an idolized national treasure selfishly took his own life. What kind of message does that send, especially to kids? This shameless act is only going to convince them that suicide is cool. Suicide must be made illegal, and only the ultimate punishment will deter people from this sin. We need to teach our children that life, regardless of how much you’re suffering, is always the answer.”

3. “Haha, the freak finally did himself in. That’s very droll,” laughs insensitive city worker Frank the Peasant, who was recently laid off for making countless inappropriate jokes on the job. “Yes, of course people are down in this nation, but if you want to cheer us up, give the people a tax cut. Stop wasting money on welfare and all this mental health rubbish. Give us our money back, and we’ll make ourselves happy.”

4. “It’s a tragedy of course, but also an opportunity,” suggests professional spin doctor Collin Squintheart, handing you a bottle of fake tears. “If we play our cards right, we can create a distraction from hard-to-sell government policies. Make a speech with a single tear rolling down your cheek and visit the widow to bring a wreath and a spontaneous hug. We can make bad news work to improve your public image.”

Autoselecting the "yes to tax cuts, no to more welfare and mental health" choice, because yay economy.

* The government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers.

[What folderol. Our choices for that were: 1) Pump up taxes to crazy amounts for extra extra mental healthcare, 2) Make suicide illegal and punishable with the death penalty, 3) Shut down all healthcare completely, or 4) Tighten our authoritarian fist for propaganda purposes. What garbage. And for our "tax break" option, we got decreases in Economic Output and Average Income? Ridiculous.

From now on, we're going to include a choice for "Dismiss this issue" if it's one we just don't want to answer. I wasn't going to give us that option at first, but come on!]

Issue: Kul Tiras Looks to the Stars

The Issue
The recent popularity of a science-fiction TV show has prompted calls for Kul Tiras to develop its own space program.

1. “Don’t tell me space colonies wouldn’t be cool,” says excited fifth-grade teacher Iocane Derr, still wearing fake Draenei beard-tentacles from his last convention. “Think of how they would galvanize the national population! And there would also be some kind of scientific benefit, probably.”

2. “The project certainly is feasible, but very expensive,” says Kul Tiras Space Agency Head Stefanie Jihns. “We could make it less of a burden on the taxpayers if we sought funding from private industry — advertisements on the side of our rockets, selling contracts to the Arms Manufacturing industry, that kind of thing.”

3. “If the Holy Light had meant Man to fly, it would have formed us with solid rocket boosters instead of legs,” says religious type Gilden Shinehammer. “We should not be looking to the stars, but rather inside our own hearts. That’s why we should abandon this so-called space program, and instead make the teaching of religion mandatory in all schools.”

4. DISMISS THIS ISSUE
