The Thaler Act is an act set by the New California Republic Congress.
Under provisions of the act, farmers from New California of the NCR would be given pay and military protection in exchange for moving to the Mojave Wasteland and farming the land to provide food to the Republic.
An example of the implementation of this act are the NCR Sharecropper Farms. High crop quotas are set for farmers who partake in the program; water rationing and bad soil have resulted in setbacks in crop quality, however.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Thaler Act is very similar to the Homestead Act of 1862. Under this act, the US government gave underdeveloped land west of the Mississippi River to farmers for free. In exchange, the farmers had to live on the land for five years and improve it.
