    Is it allowed? Like my original story is going to be abuse the political campaign of someone who's in a fictional country and world.

    So is that allowed here?

    Stories about fictional politics are fine. Be careful when making any mention of a specific, real, modern politician -- this might be allowed if it's off-hand, but if it's politically inflammatory we'll probably not allow it.

    You should be careful to avoid elements that are easily interpreted as attacking or endorsing controversial modern causes or factions.

    True it's about someone who wants to be president in his country. Takes place in a modern sera.
