A General is a college-educated man who trains to lead the island's soldiers in battle. Unfortunately, their presence also tends to lower liberty, though classes in sensitivity can help reduce this effect. The higher a general's skill is, the better they perform in battle.
Generals and their immediate families are allowed to live in army bases.
It's possible for a presidente to have been an influential general before rising to power, boosting their relationship with the Militarists and Nationalists and raising the rate of experience for all soldiers, but also reducing the island's overall liberty.
