Well, all policies are more or less important, but having 100 figures for each is probably a bit too much, 10 would already be quite big. Anyway, slavery of 57 means you allow some slavery but with some limits. It could be something like not being allowed to kill slaves, allowing them to buy their liberty back. Very low slavery numbers would mean only indenture is allowed for instance. That probably needs explanations and refining, as just figures won't cut it, and 101 different descriptions is a bit too much.
I'll have to second that. Ten-step or less sliders would be much easier to work with. Perhaps a structure like this can be used to define the steps (one possible example of slavery defined)?
<description>No slavery is allowed.</description>
<description>Only indentured slavery is allowed.</description>
<description>All forms of slavery allowed.</decription>
What you see above is just the interface portion, there would have to be some sort of "effect" portion that defined the behavior of the sliders.
