You addressed that the West would have less people, so why can't we simply keep Minnesota and Iowa out there, maybe Oklahoma as well?

Some people explicitly and proactively protested including MN & IA with the western region last time, which led to the map I've posted being the overall winner in the 2013 CARCA.

And Delaware, which is currently in the Northeast, being moved to the South of all places seems a bit odd to me as well--culturally I'd say MD, DC, and DE fit in with the Northeastern states more so than states like Alabama or Texas.

Mason-Dixon line simplicity. In addition, even though I believe populations will even out more than may be obvious right now, adding more territory to the South is needed to prevent the Northeastern region from truly being overpopulated.

GRIFF'S PRELIMINARY REGIONAL CONCON REFORM PLANS:

As a leading proponent of consolidation for over two years, I can't help but toy with the idea of a better and more prosperous Atlasia. I've made no secret of my belief that we need a 3-region system at minimum: 4 regions simply doesn't consolidate enough of the excess at the regional level that currently exacerbates the problems we have been facing in the game for a long time. While perhaps some regionalists will be upset with me for some of the ideas presented below, it should no longer be lost on any of us that at least some basic regulatory process regarding the number of offices should apply uniformly throughout the game's regions. I've put together two ideas for this process (with the first one outlined being my favorite, as it ties the number of legislators to that region's population as a percentage of the game).

In addition, I believe that we should take the opportunity - since we are going into a ConCon anyway - to add additional territory to our game. We are building an entirely new structure for the game: why not bring both our Mexican and Canadian friends into the picture as a united government and economic powerhouse?

I also believe that the notion of Lieutenant Governors are a rather silly concept. While some regions make use of them some of the time, we can explore ways to increase the value of legislative seats at the regional level by allowing them to select successors in the event of vacancies (or otherwise specifying the method in which vacant gubernatorial spots are filled).

Basic Regional Dynamics

  • Three regions, built on my CARCA proposal (map #6; the winner of the 2013 CARCA project)
  • New nation includes Canada & Mexico; possibly Caribbean nations as well
  • 1 Governor/Executive per region
  • 1 CJO per region

Max number of regional legislators fixed to federal formula, assessed every 2 months:

Idea #1 (My Favorite Idea)
  • <25% of the game's population = 3 Legislators
  • 25-40% of the game's population = 5 Legislators
  • >40% of the game's population = 3 Legislators

Idea #2
  • 01-39 Citizens = Universal Legislature
  • 40-79 Citizens = 3 Legislators
  • 80+ Citizens = 5 Legislators

Estimated # of Regional Offices = 15

Thank you, everyone, for your support!

Not planning on voting Labor, but I'm glad to see a fellow Georgian enter the race! Good luck, Adam!

Fun fact: both declared candidates are from the same region: the South. I'll take credit for that, if you don't mind...

Nobody plans on voting Labor, yet most end up doing so when the time comes around! Wink

With regards to my partisan affiliation proposal: there has likely never been a time in which the game's officeholders and, to a lesser extent, even the Census, has been more out of line with what the long-term and aggregate ideological nature of the game tend to be. In order for the ConCon reforms to pass when they come up for a vote, ideological balance that is at least somewhat similar to the composition of the game's citizens will be needed in order to ensure that the proposals that emerge are not ideologically-slanted or that entire segments of the game feel left out of the process. Furthermore, there are so relatively few active people in the game right now that I am more or less confident that the delegates will constitute roughly the same individuals with or without the provision - this is merely a backstop/guarantee that that is the case.

The justification for my submission (#6) is simple yet multi-faceted. You can find a more detailed explanation at the end of the second page and the beginning of the third page of this thread, but here's why in essence:

  • It is culturally/geographically as sound as a map can be with three regions
  • While the western region will continue to remain the smallest, a more competitive regional climate will lead to more equalization in population across regions over time
  • This map is the winner of the first CARCA, being the most-preferred crowdsourced map based on the input/votes of ~20 individuals

You end illegal immigration by stopping the elites in Mexico DF from sending them here. It should be a deep source of national shame that Mexico cannot and will not provide for their own citizens. But it isnt. Toss US employers in jail for hiring illegals.

Then at the same time end the H1B visa program

You gonna drone them into submission? Send Trump to the border to bluster from afar through his "big beautiful door"? Mexico is happy to lose those who are in their economy the least prosperous, for obvious reasons. They're not obsessed with "national pride" or whatever concept you think should cause them to commit seppuku at the sight of people leaving their country. It's not a country's responsibility to stop the outward flow of citizens from its country in an overt sense: that's a symptom of fascism. The only way you can accomplish such a thing that isn't fairy-tale Trump-speak is creating a Juche-like state.

They will stay there - or go somewhere else - when they know they cannot find gainful employment in this country. They will not stay away because of the threat of deportation. They will find their way around a wall, because you cannot completely shut off the ability for people to enter this country. Implement policies that will destroy a business' bottom-line for engaging in the practice of unauthorized employment and the net-immigration rate from Mexico and Latin America will be negative in less than five years. Any other proposal is only good for nationalist, racist posturing in an attempt to pick on the disenfranchised in order to make oneself feel better about their own situation. Want to actually solve the problem? Then only what I propose will do it.

You make America more fair by raising wages through reducing supply of low ages workers, both legal and illegal. Mass deportations will stop illegal immigration not being able to find work will stop illegal immigration. You must think people in other countries are stupid. If they know when they get here , they wont find employment and are at risk of deportation, they wont come here. You have very little regard for the basic intelligence of the people coming here.

The people who create the problem are in Mexico DF, The US Chamber of Commerce and the Democrat party.

They're not at risk of deportation now? We've deported more people than ever before under the Obama administration. We've been deporting more people than at any point in history. The net in-flow of immigration to this country is lower than at any point in recent memory, precisely because the economy isn't great and they know it's going to be much harder to find a job.

You stop illegal immigration by cutting off the reason they're coming here. They're not coming here to forge federal documents by the millions to collect your precious tax dollars like you probably presume. They're coming here to work. They know they can find work, because there is no tangible penalty for employers who hire them. They're willing to risk deportation - they've been doing it for decades, genius. Eighty percent enter the country legally via tourist visas, by plane, by car and by foot through the border (as opposed to the clandestine process you presumably imagine in your head).

The root cause of illegal immigration is the ability to find a job, and the businesses are the ones who created that root problem. You don't cure cancer by putting a bandage on it, which is what people who propose mass deportations and walls are saying. You do it by levying fines without exemption on businesses that equate to 20-30 years of savings they'd enjoy by hiring individuals without work authorization in this country. Again, I'll repeat:

Want to make Mexico and America more progressive? Deport Mexican illegals. End H1Bs and end the pipeline of cheap labor. Implement $250,000 fines for each instance of undocumented employment discovered within a business. Apply it uniformly to all businesses - corporations and small businesses alike. Create a task force whose sole responsibility is to perform random work authorization checks on businesses. Revoke the concept of limited liability protection as it applies to LLCs for immigration violations. If the business or sole proprietor can't pay the fine in cash, then begin liquidating their business assets. If after that the fine isn't fully covered, automatically deduct 50% from all future income until the fine is paid.

The great thing about Trump is that he is bringing out the latent racism in America in a way that even Obama himself couldn't.

Because border integrity is racist. BTW what race are Mexicans anyways?

Newsflash: low-information voters who fall for this nonsense don't make that distinction. Apparently, neither does Trump. Do you really think his dog-whistling has just been confined to one group of people? LOL. There's a reason nationalist and racist organizations in this country have so much overlap, and an even greater reason why they're all lining up lock, stock and barrel behind Trump like they haven't done with any modern presidential candidate.

Why dont you make the case for unlimited immigration and permanent low wages instead of yelling "racist". I can tell youve lost the argument. Screaming "Racist" is like yelling "Counter Revolution" among leftists. It is meant to avoid debate and silence any dissent.

He's making electoral bank off of stoking subconscious racial sentiment in a group of people who continue to choose worshiping an objectively, socioeconomically inferior way of life and who, instead of blaming their own life choices for falling behind economically and otherwise, blame groups of people who are even more economically and socially disenfranchised in the American frame-work. What else do you call it? These low-info voters aren't frothing at the mouth because of "the rule of law" or whatever (though that's their PC line): they're upset because they believe they're being screwed out of what used to be automatically bestowed upon them by groups of people who always have and still do have it far worse than them. It's fueled by a combination of racial animus and scapegoating mixed with the age-old self-entitled dogma that white people think they're owed everything just by showing up.

You also failed to explain why all of these nationalist and racist organizations are now coming out of the woodwork to back one specific candidate if his message isn't anything other than blatant dog-whistling.

so you thank the lack of upward mobility that has exasserabated itself in the past 10 years is all about individual choices?

What racist organizations?? three guys in their mom's basement? How about CPUSA supporting Obama?

But again you cant defend low wage immigration, so you just yell racism. You cant debate, youre pathetic.

The lack of economic mobility in white rural America has existed for far longer than a decade. It's existed for generations, and those with enough common sense to realize that they're not entitled to an equivalent way of life as those who are willing to work hard to educate themselves, learn new skills and take risks have and continue to still leave these areas in search of something better. Just like these immigrants. They too come mostly from rural, impoverished areas. What did they decide to do? Unlike their white American counterparts who piss their pants and blame everyone else for their problems, they actually took extraordinary risks just to have the chance at a better life.

David Duke, Council of Conservative Citizens, American Renaissance, Stormfront, and the list goes on and on. And let's be real: the white nationalist movement in its organized state is mostly a bunch of basement-dwellers, because people who abandon the PC lines that most casual American racists and nationalists espouse about "building the wall" and "law and order" - the ones who obsess over "white and European integrity" and aren't afraid to say it - are fycking jokes. That doesn't mean that they don't represent a much wider-held belief system in this country, and for all of their faults, they've never lined up so uniformly behind one race-baiting conservative in the past. The casual racists all across this country in white rural America is the far more important element, you're absolutely correct.

You want to solve the problem of immigration? Then stop punishing the people who are taking the job offers. It's really simple. A wall isn't going to stop it. Mass deportations are not going to stop it. If you knew anything about the overall flow and process, then it'd be painfully obvious, but you must be like the rest of your rural white conservative contemporaries who lack the ability to utilize critical thinking:

Want to make Mexico and America more progressive? Deport Mexican illegals. End H1Bs and end the pipeline of cheap labor. Implement $250,000 fines for each instance of undocumented employment discovered within a business. Apply it uniformly to all businesses - corporations and small businesses alike. Create a task force whose sole responsibility is to perform random work authorization checks on businesses. Revoke the concept of limited liability protection as it applies to LLCs for immigration violations. If the business or sole proprietor can't pay the fine in cash, then begin liquidating their business assets. If after that the fine isn't fully covered, automatically deduct 50% from all future income until the fine is paid.

Of course, you don't want to make either country more progressive or solve the problem of low-wage work, or else you'd pull your head out of your ass and stop blaming those who are willing to work harder than you for less than you, and instead, you'd start advocating going after the people who created the problem in the first place.

I did a detailed write-up/compare and contrast between GA & AZ last year, with the overall premise being that AZ would be a lot harder to flip than GA when you're talking about actually getting to 50% in the long-run.

Obama has done surprisingly well in Georgia, but this is complicated by the fact that Georgia has a very high percentage of black voters. It's doubtful that they will turnout as strongly for Hillary.

They'll turnout. Take a look at this:



The black electorate was 24% in 2006; 28% in 2010; 29% in 2014. In 2008 & 2012, it was only 30%, so the drop-off in the past two mid-terms when Obama was not on the ballot was marginal. The debate and effects will be in support, not turnout: a drop (which is all but guaranteed) back to 90% D (instead of 98% D in 2008 & 95% D in 2012) will knock anywhere from 1.5-2.5 points off of the statewide D total. If Nunn/Carter had received the same share of the black vote as Obama did in 2008, they would have received anywhere from 47-48% of the vote.



In regards to AZ, it is slightly overperforming what demographics suggest, while GA is slightly underperforming. Here was my post from last year:

Yeah I browsed over the discussion about AZ here, and I'll just boil my thoughts all down to this. We'll take the Democratic voting blocs and break them down by the numbers. The percentages shown below will build upon one another, showing the percentage of the vote statewide that is Democratic.

AZ not only a couple points less non-white than Georgia, but its non-white population is super-majority Latino, not super-majority Black. Latinos are barely 2-to-1 Democratic; Blacks are 9-to-1.

Theoretical non-white, Democratic vote (as a % of the state):
Georgia: 37.0%
Arizona: 30.8%

Then you have to factor in the fact that oh, say, 40% of the Latino population in a given area usually can't even register to vote.

Theoretical non-white, Democratic vote minus non-citizens (as a % of the state):
Georgia (83%): 34.8%
Arizona (69%): 21.0%

The whites in AZ may be more Democratic, but it isn't nearly enough to make up the difference.

Theoretical white, Democratic vote (as a % of the state):
Arizona (40%): 22.4%
Georgia (25%): 13.5%

When you add the two latter sets of numbers together:
Georgia: 48.3% D
Arizona: 43.4% D

Arizona's got a while before it's ready.

16  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Griff 4 Prez: Set Your Happening Level to "It's" on: August 28, 2015, 01:29:10 am


I originally planned to make my great announcement the day after the at-large election, thinking I had plenty of time and that no one else would be announcing any time soon. Unfortunately, I was wrong, and it appears that Clarence stole my thunder (even down to the "Make Atlasia Great Again" slogan, which I had planned for quite some time and will not be abandoning)! As such, I waited a few more days until I had the time to sit down and flesh out my thoughts.

In short, I am running for President of Atlasia in October.




There are three simple things that you need to know about me, my candidacy and the future of Atlasia in the coming months. I intend to make this election a referendum on the following three points:

The next four – possibly eight – months will be about one thing – the reformation and rebirth of this game. The fact is that I have been a proponent of needed changes to this game for over two years now. These very same needed changes – once considered highly controversial – have now all but been embraced by vast majorities on the left and right alike. The reality is that policy, ideology and all of the dogma and spergalerg that comes with it has to be put on the back-burner for now. This election should be about one simple thing: who possesses the foresight to see the problems we will face before they become apparent, and who is prepared to bring the experience to the table that is necessary to obliterate the obstacles and implement the necessary reforms.

I am a seasoned, battle-hardened warrior who is reliable. Unfortunately, many of our Presidents over the years have been green behind the ears when it comes to dealing with legislative challenges, political opposition and other difficult issues. This often leads to Presidents beginning their terms with ambitious agendas, only to have their souls crushed within the first month or two, leading to rather depressed and mediocre engagement afterward. The trend has only gotten worse as of late, with barely half of our Presidents even bothering to run for a second term. In contrast, do you know how many times I have had my dreams crushed and shattered in this game? I am tested – I know what failure feels like – and yet here I still stand. You will not have to worry about me losing steam, suddenly disappearing or faltering, because I have been forged and tempered in the pits of fiery failure, and am now immune to such flaws.

I know how to get things done. Very few in the game, past or present, have possessed the ability to grease wheels, unite various factions behind the scenes and make stuff happen like I do. That’s not bragging: it’s just a fact! Even though the reforms I have championed for over two years now have been embraced by a large percentage of the public, there will be controversy and opposition that is more than token when we truly begin to debate the details surrounding reform and rebirth. It will take someone like me – and again, it’s important to emphasize that there are very few people like me – to drive through the necessary reforms, burn the naysayers to the ground and force our agenda through to the very end.



For those who may be skeptical of me, my ideological past or my motives, I offer the following two things to consider:

The next President will be constrained by conservatism no matter what. The Senate (and the game, largely speaking) has never been more dominated by conservatives. We currently have 7 right-leaning Senators. A right-wing registration advantage in the game now exists. At the regional level, conservatives have a clear dominance. In the past, opponents of my party used arguments like “OMG if Labor gets a sixth Senate seat everything will be doomed!”, but there is no coherent or equivalent argument to be lobbed here. Even if there is a “rebound” in the regional Senate races, the Right is likely to continue enjoying a majority in the Senate for the next 6 months. As such, I will be involuntarily constrained by bipartisanship! In addition, any successful reform and rebirth package will take a bipartisan effort in order to pass through all of the obstacles in between us and a better game.

I could have ran for President at any point in the past, with an objectively easier route to the Presidency. I’m not running now because I selfishly covet the Presidency. I am running because I believe Atlasia – now more than ever – needs an experienced, steady, strong-arming hand to lead us out of this crisis. Anyone who really knows me knows that I have never desired to be President for my own personal gain, and if I had, there were plenty of times in the past that I could have used a much stronger Labor Party apparatus to catapult myself into the White House. Yet I didn’t. With an ideological opposition that is stronger than my own, I run only with the purest of intentions, knowing that the route right now is harder than probably at any point since I’ve been in the game.

I've grown against it, but I also refuse to buy a new cell phone until I absolutely need one, so I may get sucked in again. As I've gotten older, I play less with apps and whatnot...I have an iPhone 4 that I got under a 2-year contract in February 2011. Though it does suck at times: I can't even play Ingress because upgrading to iOS 7 (required for the app, and a lot of others tbh) will make this old phone so sluggish that it'd be pointless to even own it!

AZ's demographics are simply more difficult when you break them down bit-by-bit. It's possible that AZ could flip in a fluke beforehand - sort of like how NC did - but it'd require either the same type of circumstances (heavy investment) or the worst-case scenario for Republicans (Trump). I will admit that my memory is a bit fuzzy on said write-up and it did not factor in huge swings among Latinos caused by an anomaly like Trump.

21  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Determining regulations of Constitutional Convention. (Debating) on: August 26, 2015, 06:27:47 am
Partisan affiliation within the game should play at least some role in how delegates are selected; otherwise, this will quickly end up being a right-wing circle jerk. I'd propose a 10-member minimum for major party status in this criteria, with 10/20 delegates being selected by the parties. There are 96 citizens belonging to parties with 10 or more members, making the math somewhat simple:

Fed: 36/9.6 = 3.75
Lab: 35/9.6 = 3.64
TPP: 15/9.6 = 1.56
CR: 10/9.6 = 1.04

Every party would need at least one representative, and since Fed & Lab each are the 2 parties closest to rounding up, you'd end up with:

Fed: 4
Lab: 4
TPP: 1
CR: 1



With the remaining 10, you could either allow each Governor to appoint 2 delegates, or you could allow the Senate to appoint 5 delegates and allow each Governor to appoint 1 delegate, for a total of 20 delegates.
