City of Issue
I know, this game is about being through in your inspection/inquiries, but I would definitely remove the "City of issuing" clause.
I have a really bad memory, and the game "asks" me to remember the name of 3 virtual cities associated with a few (7 iirc) countries, and the name of some districts, all of which have name that aren't easy to remember.
Every game-day, if I don't want to have a penalty, I'm not allowed to a single "other type of error" because there is going to be, on average, two passports with wrong city of issuing, so I have no room left for error.
I'm open for discussion on the topic, of course, but please don't stay pointless comments like "The game is like that", "like it or leave it" and the kind, please.

Nothing is stopping you from say... writing down all the relevent information on a cheat sheet and keeping it handy. Or downloading one of the many cheat sheets that have already been made.

When you play sudoku, do you write all the grid in a computer program that solves it in 0.5s? No, because it's not meant to be played that way.

If you want to check quickly you could switch the rule book on the map page for the start of each person before they give the papers then click on their country as soon as you read it; this helped me in the alpha/beta at least

Agree with Soul Eater here. If you're really desperate you could go to any random country page and flag the issuing city up with the Issuing City Must Be Valid on that page. If it flags up, then problem solved. If not, it's right.

Open the book. Click on the map page. Click on the country. Look at the list. It's faster to do it than it is to read this instruction, the instruction you already know. With practise, you don't need to remember stuff, just remember how to look it up with efficiency. You don't have to be smart, just have a good, practised set of motions. It's kind of like a golf swing. You don't need to know the silica content of the sand of the bunker you are stuck in or the cosine of the tangent of the arc of the ball, you just need to know how to move the club.

The fact that there's too much to remember is how the game simulates the feeling of drowning in paperwork.

Well, you guys shown me how it's doable, thanks, but I think I'll stick with "trying not to screw up elsewhere" :-P
I think I'll enjoy myself more that way than the other ways you suggested.
Thanks.

Since your memory is bad, I thought I should do a quick recap of this thread.

1. Ask for advice.
2. Receive advice.
3. Ignore advice.

If it's not too much effort for you, this can be printed and kept next to your computer for easy reference.

It's part of the game that you get hotkeys as upgrades later on, including I believe shortcuts to the rulebook ... it's part of the game

I play the game win window mode, and I screenshot every country and city for reference.

That's what this game is about... Your post is no offense... stupidity.

The game is about "remembering the association between virtual countries and virtual cities"? No, it's about a passport desk. This thing is just an element they decided to add to the game and wouldn't break the concept of the game if it wasn't there.

Your comment is, offense, stupidity.

Except the entire point of the game is give you an information overload to get you to make mistakes. It is a completely relevant game mechanic. The fact that you are complaining about it, is the entire point to having it. And if it wasn't there, there would be something else in its place that you'd probably gripe about.

First, this game is not just about a "passport and a desk". Second, this game is about memorizing stuff. Looking up the issuing city is a waste of time but when you remember it, its much effecient.

Again, stupid comment. If you knew you hadn't enough "mental capacity" for this game then why did you BUY it?
