Day 20 is Sunday, December 12th, 1982 in story mode. Sanctions have ended as quickly as they began and Imporians are once again free to enter to Arstotzka.

Rules in effectEdit

EventsEdit

  • The M.O.A. supervisor performs an inspection at the beginning of the day (just like on day 10). He states the total number of citations the inspector has received, and gives him another plaque to hang on his wall. He also takes note of any unofficial decor (i.e. Arstotzka Arskickers pennant and/or son's drawing) and will fine the inspector for them at the end of the day. He also gives instructions to let Shae Piersovska through (she will appear on day 25). Being notified about unofficial decor has consequences on Piersovska-related events and may lead to endings 11 or 12.
    • The supervisor counts as an entrant for the purpose of this article since he increments the counter at the bottom of the screen by 1.
  • The third entrant (including the M.O.A. supervisor, see note above) is an EZIC messenger with a note explaining that a man called Khaled Istom will target an EZIC agent in Arstotzka if he gets across the border. The messenger will also give the inspector an envelope with a skull on the front and a poison inside.
    • To use the poison, the package needs to be opened completely by clicking three different arrows, then clicking the clear backing of the package.
  • The sixth entrant is a journalist with just a passport and a press ID. Allowing entry will lead to a citation. Poisoning the journalist has no effect on the game or headlines. It only makes the day end prematurely, preventing the completion of the poison-related EZIC task (see below).
  • The ninth entrant is Khaled Istom. Poisoning him will lead to small reward at the end of the day and counts towards one of the EZIC tasks needed to get ending 19. Completing the task will also prevent getting ending 20. If Istom's passport is poisoned and his entry denied, he and three entrants waiting in the line will die of poison. If his passport is poisoned and he is allowed to enter, he and a guard who checks up on him (never Sergiu) will both die outside the booth.
  • Day 20 can end in five ways:
    • The day ends immediately when the inspector poisons someone and then denies or allows their entry. Aside from a possible citation for breaking immigration protocol, the inspector will suffer no sanctions from poisoning people (even when poisoning the journalist). It is possible to get rid of the poison by poisoning the passport of a person who will be detained. This will not affect gameplay or headlines and won't kill the targeted entrant even if their passport is returned before the guards pick them up. The game states that "The day was cut short because of a security issue" in the end of day screen.
    • If the inspector ignores the warning on the EZIC envelope and touches the poison, it results in a quick death for the inspector (doesn't count as an ending.)
    • If the clock reaches 6pm and no one is poisoned, the day goes on until Khaled Istom has left the checkpoint.
    • If no one is poisoned and Khaled Istom leaves the checkpoint before 6pm, the flow of entrants will proceed normally until 6pm.
    • If no one is poisoned and Khaled Istom leaves the checkpoint before 6pm, the day can still end prematurely if a randomly generated smuggler appears, is approved for entry and commits suicide bombing.
  • If Khaled Istom is poisoned, EZIC will send a 20-credit gift at the end of the day.
  • If the M.O.A. supervisor noticed any unofficial wall hangings, a 20-credit fine is assessed at the end of the day. The end of day will display the text "A fine is assessed for unauthorized hangings."
  • At the end of the day, the inspector will receive 5 credits for each two entrants detained in the past two days (as per his deal with Calensk). The bonus caps at 30 credits.
