A forgery is a document that someone makes up and that is not approved by the Ministry of Admission (M.O.A.), the Ministry of Labor (M.O.L.), or any of the foreign governments and may have forged seals or no seals at all. Forged documents may also contain false information or discrepancies that the inspector must spot and account for.
Signs of forgery are:
- No seal at all
- Incorrect abbreviation on seal (M.O.L. instead of M.O.A.)
- Seal or name of another country in diplomatic authorization
- Seal facing the other way (for M.O.L.'s hammer seal; see below)
- Seal on the document does not match the ones in the rulebook (see below)
Forgeries are pointed out in the inspection mode by highlighting valid seals displayed in the rulebook and a forged seal on a document (or the entire document if the seal is missing). If the seal is missing, the missing seal can also be pointed out by selecting the whole document and the text box in the rulebook stating that the document in question must have a seal. The inspector can detain an entrant after interrogating about the forgery.
