* StupidCrooks: You have to deal with them from time to time. One scripted event involves the immigrant dropping ''two'' passports with their name and photo but with different ID numbers, indicating obvious forgery. You don't even have to look at them before the "Detain" button pops up. Also, other criminals don't leave the line even when someone is arrested in front of them.

** You don't HAVE to ask questions to anyone with improper paperwork [[spoiler:until the time comes where you need to find reasons to deny them]]; in fact, the moment you see an inconsistency, you can deny them outright.

The fact that you're going through the extra effort just to see if it's a good person that can be admitted is showing that you care yourself and allows you to prevent crimes by arresting crooks.

Added DiffLines:

** When you detect a criminal, you can detain the crook and therefore be cruel to the crook. You can be kind to the crook by just denying the entrant or letting the crook through, but this is cruel to society.

** Some good people might be unfortunately in possession of an improper set of identification or insufficient amount thereof and a kind player can "look the other way" and stamp them approved anyway. In one instance, a woman claiming to be at risk of becoming a SexSlave to a man in line after her will slip you a note begging for your help. When his turn comes up, you can detain him.

* CrapsackWorld: Arstotzka is a nasty {{Ruritania}} in of itself, but what's worse is that there are people immigrating to it to get away from ''worse'' countries. Antegria is a flat-out tyranny that spies on and kills its own citizens on a whim. Kolechia is considered ten times worse than Arstotzka by Sergiu, has a poor health care system, and is full of terrorists and drugs. Obristan is another {{Ruritania}} that is apparently full of criminals, drugs, and border inspectors who are much worse at their jobs than the player. Republia is a PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny. The United Federation has a strong economy and the best technology out of all of the countries in this game, but its health care system is apparently a sick joke due to letting polio become another plague that causes international problems when it could be easily controlled with vaccines. Arstotzka, with all of its problems, has an excellent health care system and has a stable economy. The only country which does not have anything pointing to general problems in this game is Impor. Not helping is the fact that the game is set in the eighties, [[GeniusBonus which was when the Communist states in our timeline got on their deathbed after years of hold out.]]
