Today I’ve got this Issue on my Nationstates (nationstates.net)
A spectre is haunting NATIONSNAME— the spectre of the Woodeating Spikeball. With scenic parks ravaged by this invasive species, citizens are clamoring at your door to advise you.
I’ve encountered with many choices
1. “The ecosystem is in great peril,” claims Newt Jefferson, an importer of exotic pets. “These Woodeating Spikeballs have no natural predators here. But there is a solution: back in their native Maxtopia, these pests are kept in check by the sabre-toothed ANIMAL. We have to introduce these animals into our forests before it’s too late. And you know, since I’m such a nice guy, I’ll cut you a deal on the ANIMAL.”
2. “You can’t stop one invasive species by introducing another,” scoffs avid hunter Stan Patel while skinning several rabbits on your desk. “Just give out hunting permits for these Spikeballs, and we’ll have the population under control in no time. You know what, might as well extend hunting and fishing seasons for other animals too. I’ve been itching to bag myself a Giant Lilliputian Rabbit.”
3. “We shouldn’t be left at the mercy of our citizens,” counsels gendarme Charles Xavier while barely suppressing his hatred for animals. “If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself. Let’s send out our boys in blue to go hunt down these vermin.” Frothing rabidly, he finishes, “That way we can be sure every last one of those mangy, stinking, filth-ridden pests is dead!”
4. “So what if these Spikeballs are eating all the trees?” says thoroughly apathetic citizen Ariel Pence. “Nature got along fine for millions of years before we came into the picture. Just let survival of the fittest run its course. Sure, we might lose a few species or ecosystems along the way, but at least we’ll save some money. Forests are really boring, anyway.”
5. Dismiss the issue
