President Yaroslav Mar signed today a Decree officially introducing the Social Credit System — the national credit rating and blacklist of Lostisland developed and managed by the Federal Intelligence and Security Service (FISS).
The system that has been undergoing trials for the last two weeks before being signed today into law will help to evaluate the trustworthiness of Lostislandic citizens and will have each Lostislandic citizen assigned a numerical score that would go up and down depending on the citizen’s actions. Although the exact calculation method and the entire addition and subtraction chart will not be released to the public, it is known that positive deeds include having a legitimate Ph.D., donating blood, voting in Lostislandic elections, making donations, and publicly praising the government. Points will be subtracted, among other things, for criticizing the Lostislandic authorities, having diploma mill credentials, a track record of communism, being a citizen of another micronation, being divorced, a public atheist, a Pakistani, or a relative of someone who was executed.
The assigned score will be used to determine the value of a particular Lostislandic citizen compared to other citizens and evaluate their suitability for being appointed to positions of power. A score of 100+ — model citizen — will be required for government positions. A score from 90 to 100 (good citizen) will not entail any sanctions, while problematic citizens (50 to 90) will not be able to attend any Lostislandic function, censored in official material and offered to attend re-education classes to increase their score. Untrustworthy citizens who scored below 50 will be subject to citizenship removal.
Although the system will be subject to fine-tuning as the scores are assigned, it is expected to help optimize the selection of government officials, promote virtue and prevent vice within the Federal Republic. It is believed to be the first system of such kind developed by a new nation project or micronation.
