When news was spread of how good life was in Middleton, people who had been ejected from other towns began to relocate. They hoped to benefit from the elevated standards of Middleton and live a life of increased efficiency and orderliness. This had the opposite effect, however, and lowered the quality of people in Middleton. They did not have the elasticity of normal Middleton citizens and began to demand more say in how the town was run.The elite developed an elaborate plan to eliminate these newcomers from Middleton. They detailed that the only people that would be eligible to live in Middleton were those who had been born there. Heavy fines and taxes were placed on those that did not meet this standard. Soon the newcomers left and Middleton returned to normal, ruled by an elite, but happy.
