Vem aí a Troika! (in portuguese) happens in a fictional country named Portugalândia, where you may find corrupt and incompetent leaders, shady financials, and interest groups that don't care about the country, causing bankruptcy and the coming of Troika. Any resemblance to actual facts, entities or persons is purely coincidental.
The game is a satire to the dynamics of power, influence and pressure, which dominate the life of a democratic society.
Each player represents an interest group that attempts to gain power, money and votes through political, social and economical manipulation.
The winner will be the player who gets the most points by using his web of influence, by creating political consensus, by winning elections, and by getting money and certificates of deposit in tax havens (offshores).
