I do remember that one Marty, although I don't recall 'slaves'.
But all the rest was as you describe. Set in China ? Goal is to be
made Emperor etc. ? Buy/Sell land, Grow crops etc. Written in Basic ?
I recall that I rewrote large chunks of the program to make it
more user-friendly to school-kids here, as it was functional but
bare/no-frills/no 'text-tricks' etc. in its original form.
About that time I also gave similar treatment to quite a few other
'PD' text adventures (Stock-Market, Banana-Republic, Golf-Sim. etc.)
and put them on a single disk with a menu that each program went
back to when the student had finished playing it.
Not sure if I have the original disk, but I'll DEFINITELY have a
copy in .dsk format, as I converted all those oldies to .dsk
for emulator usage, before the disk media died a natural death.
If .dsk format is OK, let me know and I'll hunt it out and send
you a copy (about 10 text simulation-programs on the 'disk' as I recall).
