What takes four years to fulfil a promise, but only six seconds to escape a scandal? That's right: your friendly neighbourhood bureaucrat. Like the automobiles of opposite-land, Earth's political elite moves that much faster in reverse; so much so that some officials even choose to moonwalk to work.
Of course, no one character knows the true value of a backwards step quite like The Prince of Persia. Armed with the 'Sands of Time', a mythical, monster-spewing concoction--like Weatherspoons in Cardiff--this veteran leader can chose to undo any and all faux pas, from illicit love triangles to the ill-judged ‘Super-Nuke Tuesdays’.
Party line: "The leader formally known as Prince works tirelessly to ensure that you--the people--receive the absolute least-worst future available. Remember last week's side-splitting cholera pandemic? Neither do I, and neither will you, thanks to my party's latest pledge* to unlimited do-overs."
