Fiction, Science Fiction

A note requesting his assistance sends the Stainless Steel Rat to the world of Paraiso Aqui, the misnamed pseudo dictatorship with the "president-for-life" tyrant. Naturally, Slippery Jim thinks that the best way to save the planet from tyranny is to win a real election— naturally enough, by cheating his way past the cheater. In terms of dirty election tricks, this is a keeper, and he has to do all of this while dodging the minions of the current president. Fair enough. Admittedly, that's got to be a bit easier when you can own estate-wide shields to protect against ballistic missiles.
