Elena Romanovska wants to enter the great nation of Arstotzka. My country.
All of her dates look good: DOB, passport expiration, entrance deadline. Her verbal explanation for entering matches what's on the work permit, which definitely wasn't forged. I flip through my guidebook to verify the passport's issuing citycheck. Her listed weight mirrors what I see on my scale, so she probably isn't a smuggler. Everything's in order. I knock the green APPROVED stamp over the top page of her passport, push her documents back through the slot, and my workspace clears.
Oh god . That was her. Elena was on today's wanted criminals list from the Ministry of Admission, which I'd accidentally buried underneath her pile of documentation. It's my third mistake of the day, so I'm fined on the spot. That's five fewer dollars that I'll have to pay rent, to keep the heat on, to feed my family.
Papers, Please is the intersection of efficiency and intrigue.
