* MultipleIdentityIDs: One entrant will accidentally give you two passports with identical photos, but different names and nations. Your detain button pops up immediately. Several other entrants will have one name on their passport and a different name on their supporting documentation; they will claim IHaveManyNames, requiring you to do a fingerprint check, which includes any known aliases. This usually clears up everything.

Added DiffLines:

* ExactWords: This is why the inspector can detain people whose papers contain names with typos. Entrants always attribute typos as an aliases. However, if the entrant stated that there was a typo, the inspector could have just denied the entrant instead of being given the opportunity to arrest the entrant.

** One happens on day 12, though the player might not realize it the first time they play. The Ministry of Information will leave some papers with the inspector to be picked up later, as well as a fake set of papers to give to an imposter claiming to be an agent of the ministry in the line behind the person who dropped off the papers. [[spoiler: If the player gives the fake papers to the imposter, the Kolechian government will kill several of its own citizens, falsely believing them to be Arstotzkan spies. If the player gives the real papers to the imposter, the Kolechians will locate and kill the ''actual'' Arstotzkan spies in their country.]]

* ApatheticCitizens: Your neighbors are happy to snitch on you to the authorities if you accept EZIC's monetary gift, however, no one gives a damn should one of your family members pass away. Don't expect any condolences and you're dreaming if you think you deserve some sort of bereavement leave.

** If the above is true, then the United Federation is hands down this universe's version of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Not only are both countries Federations, but both are to the furthest left of the Balkan Eastern Bloc, the borders for both seem to be similarly shaped, and Yugoslavia's leader Tito was the leader of the Non-Aligned Movement, meaning Yugoslavia got more access to western consumer goods as the United Federation is mentioned to have access to computers.
* NoDamageRun: One of the Endless Mode games, Perfection, requires you process entrants without any citations. Note that it is technically impossible to complete the main story due to a story-mandatory citation [[spoiler: as there is no way out of getting a citation for confiscating Jorji's passport]] but you can still attempt a no-damage run outside of that instance.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatMeasureIsAMook: The border guards never get any characterization beyond having terrible aim. Sergiu serves to give them a face and remind the player that even foot soldiers of an oppressive regime are still people.
