"Should I tell the truth or a lie?"

Let me think............, could it be good salary, free medical/hospital care, good (early) pension, good guanxi, perceived status and other benefits which are not spoken about?

Working as a civil servant means you get a golden bowl.
It is decent and well-paid. If you have some relations, you will have a bright prospect.

Who wouldn't want the safety of employment by the only lawful thief in the land :) same in every country.   China & developing nations will see big increases in taxes to maintain the current "quality" of government services or rapidly diminishing returns on the money spent. Many western countries see the "quality" of service decrease for same tax rate, same book, just one or two pages ahead.

It's far better to work for the government than for some individual who's only interest in you is seeing
how much he or she can squeeze out of you for the least amount of pay.
In the future we'll all be civil servants and the rich will be eliminated as mankind progresses.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

The pay is not great, but it is offset by job security and hidden welfare benefits, including free healthcare, a walfare house that may cost your lifetime's saving and all kinds of shopping cards.
