Do you have a gulag? You can't have a regime without a gulag.

gulags are expensive. Guillotines are cheap. It is much better to have a terror than a regime.

wow, you're staying with that post?! I had to wait until a national music concert where my wife and children sang nationalist love songs with me, and only when we were up for a final encore were we able to slip past Prok's guards and make our way to freedom over the mountains.

My estemeed President Bergman,

As a reward for my loyalty to you and my role in your coup d'etat, can you please appoint me as the head of the Second Life Federal Management Agency (SL-FEMA) and SL-Homeland Security. I also would like to have unlimited resources to protect our new nation from all kinds of natural calamities and terrorist activities. I understand that this will require almost no effort from my part and I will simply enjoy my big fat salary and help plundering all the resources you will provide to me in the service of our national security. I will of course make sure any of your friends' companies get majority of contracts distributed by my agency. I believe my service will make SL the first completely secure virtual world. I will be grateful to you for this lucrative post and honored to keep serving you.

Sincerely,

Snowcrash Hoffman
