BitLife, the life simulation game, allows players to experience various aspects of life, including the pursuit of a political career. The game’s politics update offers a detailed and immersive journey for players aspiring to become President or Prime Minister. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to achieve this prestigious position.
Early Life and Education
- Childhood and Teenage Years: Your journey begins in childhood. Focus on maintaining good behavior and high intelligence, which are crucial for a political career. Avoid getting into trouble, like bullying or classroom disruptions, as these can impact your future political ambitions.
- Higher Education: After high school, attend college. Higher educational qualifications are required for top political positions. Avoid illegal activities and maintain high grades. For School Board Director or Mayor roles, a high school diploma may suffice, but Governor/Council Chair and President/Prime Minister roles require college and graduate school education, respectively.
Starting as School Board Director
- Campaigning: Start your political career as a School Board Director. You’ll need a campaign budget of $10,000 to $20,000. Choose your platform focusing on Economy, Education, Environment, or Social Issues and decide how to treat your opponents – respectfully, indifferently, or disrespectfully.
- Elections and Approval Ratings: Pay attention to your election opponents’ stats and their platforms. Post-election, manage your agenda and organize rallies to boost your approval ratings.
Dealing with Challenges
- Decision Making: As a School Board Director, you’ll face various scenarios that require careful decision-making, affecting your community and approval ratings.
- Handling Bribes: Be cautious of bribes, as accepting them can lead to impeachment, especially if you get caught.
- Non-Refundable Campaign Budgets: Remember that campaign budgets are non-refundable. If you lose an election or don’t make it to the ballot, you won’t get this money back. A workaround is to exit and restart BitLife if you face election failure, allowing you to try again without losing funds.
Rising Through the Ranks
- Mayorship: Your first major political role could be Mayor. Here, you’ll choose your political party and deal with more complex issues like Crime and Healthcare. Campaign budgets range from $50,000 to $80,000 for better chances of success. Expect mudslinging and manage rumors effectively during your campaign.
- Gubernatorial Role: As Governor, focus on statewide issues with a campaign budget of at least $1.5 million. You’ll also become a famous politician, which allows opportunities to earn extra cash but beware of the risks of impeachment.
Running for President/Prime Minister
- Requirements: To run for President or Prime Minister, you must be of minimum age, have completed graduate school, and have a substantial campaign budget (at least $5 million, preferably $20 million or more). Representing minor parties may require higher campaign budgets.
- Campaign and Governance: Tackle new issues like Foreign Policy, Immigration, and National Security. Manage your agenda carefully and maintain high approval ratings for a successful term.
- Impeachable Offenses: Engaging in financial misconduct, such as accepting bribes or earning money through questionable means, are significant impeachable offenses. Avoid actions that could lead to your removal from office.
Building Your War Chest
- Financial Management: Accumulating funds is crucial. Options include inheriting money, fixing and flipping houses, and earning through fame as a Governor. Maintain a strong social media presence and use it to your advantage.
Becoming a President or Prime Minister in BitLife is a complex but rewarding journey. It requires careful planning, smart decision-making, and effective management of resources and public perception. By following these steps and strategies, you can rise to the highest office in the virtual world of BitLife.
