"- So, Traveler, do you happen to be free?"
Then he will approach the clerk! "Excuse me, I and my assistant are from another world. Are there responsible authorities who need to be informed of this, and, if so, where would I find them?"
"... The President rules your nation?"
"What do they do?"
Ah, governmental criticism from an alien society.
"And the President is in charge of enforcing the laws that are passed?"
"One would think not," he says drily.
(Nau briefly had police officers. Then they mostly ended up beating people up and extorting them, and now he just has soldiers, security cameras, and bailiffs. This does mean it is functionally impossible to get arrested for murder as long as you do it in the house of someone who doesn't have security cameras, but there's necessities and then there's necessities.)
"... You do have police officers? Who is in charge of them?" That sounds like it may be a more accurate guide to who runs the state than anything else.
"Who is a local, not national executive?" He has no idea what 'cop shows' are but he's not going to admit that, and 'mayor' mostly translates.
"What's a 'cop show?'"
Thank you, Rinara.
Camera = those things Nau has in his streets so he knows who did crimes.
Camera crew = people who... pilot a camera? Use a camera? From context, probably "haul the camera around."
Doing things = from the translation and Nau's description of what happens when he tried that, 'beating up people and extorting money from them?'
Talking about their jobs = 'boasting about being up people and extorting money from them?'
'Cut it together as a show' = she doesn't even know what questions to ask. Cut it together to show people? For, like, blackmail purposes?
"... As a show?" Maybe just repeating the last three words will miraculously cause context to appear.
"Our world doesn't have television, sorry."
"Any series of possible inputs can be described as a pattern of YES and NOs, and there in binary translated by the machine that receives it according to a prewritten rule into orders to display a set of specific microscopic pictures that together form a larger image. You could also use visible light, it would simply annoy those in the pathway between them."
Nice that someone knows what's going on!
