A Dystopian Document Thriller.

The communist state of Arstotzka has ended a 6-year war with neighboring Kolechia and reclaimed its rightful half of the border town, Grestin.

Your job as immigration inspector is to control the flow of people entering the Arstotzkan side of Grestin from Kolechia. Among the throngs of immigrants and visitors looking for work are hidden smugglers, spies, and terrorists. Using only the documents provided by travelers and the Ministry of Admission's primitive inspect, search, and fingerprint systems you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested.

Primarily mouse driven, player can however gain booth upgrades that allow keyboard shortcuts to some actions.

The basic gameplay boils down to locating mismatching information (you're fined for each time there's at least one discrepancy and you let them through), following the rules (search all people matching certain detail), demanding more papers, and personal opinion (letting people through and being fined may be the right or better option on the long run). Each day you have a limited time to go through the people and their papers and you get paid for each person you let through, this pay is used to cover rent, food, heating, and other costs which are not all mandatory in the short run (you can voluntarily leave heating or food unpaid, for example).
