If the proposal “Staff Track” has failed, this proposal does nothing.

Otherwise, add a new rule called “Surveys” with the following text:

A Constituency may be Diverse or Unified. By default, no Constituency is either.

Upon completing a Gerrymander or Campaign action, or another Daily, Weekly or Staff Action which affects the block membership or Party support of any Constituency, the Councillor performing it may perform a survey on the Constituencies it affected, and count how many of their Blocks support each Party.

If a survey reveals that a non-Diverse Constituency contains at least two blocks supporting each of the four Parties, the Councillor representing it gains one Staff, and the Constituency is Diverse. If a survey reveals that a Diverse Constituency does not meet the above condition, the Councillor representing it loses one Staff, and it is no longer Diverse.

If a survey reveals that a non-Unified Constituency has at least eight blocks supporting a single Party, and at most two blocks not supporting that Party, the Councillor representing it gains two Staff, and the Constituency is Unified. If a survey reveals that a Unified Constituency does not meet the above condition, the Councillor representing it loses two Staff, and it is no longer Unified.

If Staff lost through this rule would cause a Councillor to have more Ready Staff than their maximum Staff, their number of Ready Staff is set to the same number as their maximum Staff. Otherwise, their number of Ready Staff is unaffected by these losses. Staff loss by means of this rule cannot cause a Councillor to have fewer than three Staff.

Change “As a Weekly Action” in the rule “Campaign” to read “As a Staff Action” instead.

for Very good. Should track this somewhere, though.

Yeah, a field to track state would be nice.

I dislike the word ‘may’ here - it will be better as an atomic action.

imperial I like the may.

And, turning every action in the game that do X, some of which aren’t atomic actions, into atomic actions, would be clunky and possibly break things.
