Summary[edit | edit source]

While their civic structure is grossly deficient, the Terran Empire's military is brutally effective. It is fascist to the point of rampant psych disorders, yet paradoxically it functions well. We wish to know how.

Outcome[edit | edit source]

Final outcome: Success

Your teem discovered that Terran unit cohesion runs off ambition and false hope. Bolstered by propaganda, most Terren soldiers dream of climbing the ranks. In reality, the vast majority are crippled by the vestiges of their humanity. Stress forces them to grow closer and trust others to cope. Doing so dooms them. Structurally, it is a vast pyramid scheme.

Final outcome: Breakthrough!

Any government run on propaganda gradually fills with fools and monsters. Your team found the Terran culture serves as a sort of sifting mechanism. It winnows the populace in favor of minds that can function in a fascist state without delusion. Individuals displaying narcissism. sociopathy, and similar disorders are meticulously rewarded with authority over others. Given time, this process might even result in changes at the genetic level.
