So you're probably wondering "What is this 'Clout' this wiki is dedicated to?". Well, "Clout" or "Clout: The Game" is the first ever "Satirical PvP Politics Simulator MMORPG", or "Congress Simulator", if you want to be laconic about it. You play as one of the thousands of people in congress, who can try to pass bills, try to fail bills, try to lead your party/team/associates/crony's to victory, or failure, try to assassinate the president, or other congresspeople, try to whip the country into shape, try to destroy the country in the most spectacular way possible, or just muck around, basically, as long as you follow the few rules, the choice is yours!

This is here to introduce you to the most basic ideas, not to act as a tutorial, for that, go to the 'help' section in the navigation toolbar below the title when you are ingame, and there is a copy of it here on the wiki

FOLLOW THE RULES Edit

Please follow the rules! It makes for a better experience for all, and you won't be banned, thank you

Bills Edit

Bills are the main gameplay aspect behind Clout, you can introduce bills by going to the 'Bills' section in the navigation toolbar (right below the title) and then clicking 'Introduce a Bill' in the subsection of the toolbar that opens up, then, if you have enough clout and energy, you can choose an option, then you-

Woah woah woah, what's a bill (in this version of congress)? Edit

If you have a basic understanding of how a bill goes through congress, you probably won't be asking this question, but I still need to clarify how fictional Congress handles bills...

Someone in Congress who has enough clout and energy can introduce a bill to Congress, which gets added to the bill list, where every other congressperson plays either for or against the bill, after enough support/opposition is thrown, the bill will be passed/fail unless the president vetoes the bill, but if there's enough support for the bill, it will override the veto. However this does not apply to binary bills, which, instead of having a bar where it fails or wins, it has a pass chance that increases/decreases when someone plays for/against the bill, and when it's a certain date after the bill is introduced, the bill will have that chance of winning.

Constituent Support Edit

Constituent Support is the measure by which congressmen are elected to stay or to be thrown out of office. Playing for/against bills that his party likes/hates earns him constituent support, doing the opposite (for/against for hates/likes) will lose him constituent support, doing a gaffe (using an ability for/against a bill that doesn't make sense in the context of the bill and ability, like claiming 'fiscal infeasibility' to play for a 'fund [anything]' bill) will lose you constituent support, having scandals released to the press will lose you some or a lot depending on the scandal, and it's constituent support that determines if you will stay in office at the end of the month, or if you will be kicked out!

The Main 5 Political Parties Edit

Unlike in real life, where there is basically only 'republicans' or 'democrats', there are 5 different political affiliations you can choose from when you create your character, which determines what bills you can support/go against without your Constituents hating you...

Please keep bias out, this is a satirical political simulator, what did you expect?
