The act's goal is to implement the ideology of Socialism across the nation of Delongo. Delongonian President Katie Lee has said that "Socialism is the riddle of history solved," which is a pun on Karl Marx's original comment on that of Communism.
The controversy has been minimal in Delongo, as the act has a 94.8% approval rating among the Delongonian public. The only recognized political party that has been outspoken against the ad is the Capitalist Party of Delongo, which has spoken out against the high tax rates that the act would bring forth.
Other, more conservative nations have been highly outspoken against the Socialist Act, some saying that they will be cutting all Diplomatic ties with Delongo if the act passes through Parliament.
Pictured left, you can see the symbol that has been used by the Amercian Against Socialism. (The symbol is actually one for Fascism, of which the Socialist Act is not).
