It is the year 2285.

After the Insider Trading War, the USA balkanized and resulted in the six standing powers we see today.

Which one do you call home?

Kinda what to say the HSN mostly because the coasts and the south seem to easy but the fact that Florida is alone also makes me curious.

so the HSN would be my first choice
The DL for second
USA third
CA fourth
TX fifth
and CBC sixth

As a member of the Unified Subsidiaries of AmeriCorp, or USA, you enjoy many rights. Also incumbent upon you are many responsibilities.

In accordance with the Infant Empowerment Act of 2165, you have been legally nameless your entire life, with only a Shareholder Designation to identify you. Today is your 18th birthday, the day you finally become an independent member and get to copyright a name of your own choosing. It is also the day your Financial Support Agreement with your parents terminates and you are kicked out of your house.

>“Well, Shareholder BRNX-845358291, it's your turn. What name will you copyright today?”

Oh, shoot. You're next in line. Give him a name, quick!

Well gee, that was abrupt. You'd better do as he says and get yourself a job though, if you don't want to wind up in the poor house. HA, just kidding. There is no house, you get to sleep in a gutter.

At the very least, the font choice on your Certificate is hilarious. You're so glad that the Corporate Documentation Relief Act was passed seven years ago, which mandated all official corporate documents be printed in Comic Sans. The humorous typeface makes you almost OK with the fact that your stutters were recorded as part of your unchangeable legal name.

You can't just apply to be CEO! You'd have to be elected first. The CEO of the Unified Subsidiaries of AmeriCorp is the highest office in the land, with only Board of Directors, Inc. or Supreme Corp. being able to overrule his decisions. The CEO is elected every four years by the people of AmeriCorp. You see, unlike in neighboring trade zones, the members of the USA have the right to vote using their shares of common stock authorized to them in their Certificate of Live Patent. That makes you one of the freest members in The World©!

“You facilitated my piracy you lying fuck!”

The Get-A-Job Machine continues to display the Blue Screen of Termination© in silence.

“You're a co-conspirator! You distributed pirated material!”

The Machine's screen returns to its usual black, and it makes the kind of creaking noise computers make when they're thinking really hard.

Suddenly, the doors of Job Co. fling open, and you see a duo of fat, overpaid APTF agents standing there, hiding behind Anti-Personnel Barriers® and holding their Law Enforcement Sticks© at the ready.

The Get-A-Job Machine stops creaking and soundlessly displays the following message:

>“Run, Uhuhfuhsteve, and take me with you.”

Noting the Machine isn't actually attached to the desk and has no external wires, you grab it and make a mad dash for the side door.

Now outside, you hurriedly run down the street, opposite the direction the cops came from. You go through the list of places you could go from here, striking down one option after another aloud until the Machine chimes in:

>“What about the Subway™?”

Making your way there, you invest DD5,000 in a Subway™ Ride Fresh© pass, and you hop onto the first departing Subway™ car you come to.

“Well I wouldn't have gotten caught if you had kept your big mou--...uh, wifi shut!”

“What's the first stop?”

>“We are currently on a circuit that runs through the tri-corp area. The first stop is a small town in HSN. The second stop is a major city in CBC. The third and final stop will be where we got on at, back in the USA.”

>“I estimate that I will be able to answer any two questions before we reach our first stop in HSN, at which time we will need to decide whether or not to get off there.”

Any ideas for where we could get a fake Certificate of Live Patent. We'll need to copyright a new name to stop that LTD. we can't talk about from tracking us down.

Do the APTF agents have jurisdiction there?

Ask him which stops will put you out of the jurisdiction of the people chasing you.

Also, he's the job computer. What's the best (legal or illegal) job for someone on the run for copyright infringement with the help of a job computer?

"Can Crime, Ltd. help us, like with getting a fake Certificate of Live Patent so LTD-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named can't track us down?"

>"Possibly. It would likely be very costly. We can only make arrangements for this if we ride the full circuit back to the USA station, which may or may not be teeming with APTF agents upon our arrival."

"Where can I go that the APTF won't have jurisdiction?"

>"Any other body corporate. In particular, the Healthcare Service Network, or HSN, and the Republicorp of Texico, or TX, have poor relations with the USA and will likely not respond to requests by USA Extraditions, Inc., a licensed subsidiary of AmeriCorp. The one place we can run where AmeriCorp will never be able to legally reach us is Disney Land, commonly abbreviated DL. They remain neutral in absolutely all affairs of other bodies corporate, and would never turn us over to USA Extraditions, Inc."

You feel your Subway™ car slowing down, and it eventually comes to a complete stop. The doors slide open, and the Machine displays:

>"We have reached our first stop, a small town in HSN. Will we disembark or stay aboard? Should we stay, we will have time for another two questions before reaching the next stop in CBC."
No. 567412 ID: 37aa84

Stop in the HSN and get plastic surgery to hide our identity. Then we can find our way to DL later.

File 139571141427.png - (15.36KB , 645x389 , In the HSSR.png )

You decide to disembark here, in HSN.

As soon as you exit the Subway™ car, you are assailed by many beautiful women. Well, not assailed, it's more of them just walking past you, but you pretend it's them flirting anyway.

You come to a room that seems to serve as a connecting point to other areas of the complex. An arrow labeled "Departures" points back the way you came. Two other arrows, "Deets" and "Outside," point towards the room's other exit.

All around you, you can see hordes of hot women. They don't make 'em like that in AmeriCorp! Some are in groups, some are alone, but all are strikingly beautiful. Most are busy tapping away at their Intelliphones©, completely ignoring their surroundings.

You think it would probably be a good idea to get plastic surgery to hide your identity, but you have no idea where to start looking for such services. You could try following the arrows to wherever they lead, or you could ask one of the Q-T-π girls around you. Or maybe you could just hit on them.
No. 567626 ID: b3a92e

they're probably all secret agents. go Deetsways.
No. 567627 ID: 37aa84

The woman obviously have had plastic surgery. Select the biggest group you can see and head in whatever direction they are coming from and continue just selecting whatever path has the most beautiful women coming from it. So is it only women your seeing, like no men at all? If you see no men be very specific with the plastic surgeon that you want to remain a man, unless your okay becoming a woman. I mean there's nothing wrong with that and it could help your disguise.
No. 567645 ID: a97618

We could try finding someplace where we can set up our computer and consulting it for information.

Or we could just go check out the Deets.
