Good things first! Awesome game! played it 4 or maybe 5 times, which is a huge positive sign :D, and for your reference, my highest score was 66 [you technically cheated, since you know exactly what each thing increase/decrease, so I won't compare myself with you XD]
Now to the negatives x_x! you need to convey the style of the game from the name and banner, because until I actually played the game, i thought it was going to be some random colorful game and not a detailed political simulation game (which is actually something I love). Another major disadvantage of the game, is that it is too fast (as someone who is just playing the game, you can't expect me in a few second decide whether a particular state needs cannabis or space exploration!. Also, the game didn't actually feel like it implemented the game jam theme perfectly (although I do get the no death state pun XD) . Another thing that is really important, is that the losing sound always gave me jump scares! so lower its volume and change it to something less sudden (maybe I am a scaredy-cat but having a jump scare by the same sound 3 different times, is definitely not suppose to happen in a simulator game!). Also, the sound effects are way too loud compared to the game music
All in all, I really enjoyed the game, and my rant is basically me trying to see this game in an even better form ^__^
Interesting twist on the reigns formula! The timer and multiple states to manage at once were really brutal at first, but it's really fun.
On a more negative note, I had to lower the game sound a LOT because of the text sound effects and I barely heard the music anymore :/
