This is not Atlasia people, although it's fast becoming one.

I joined because I was genuinely curious about participating. I didn't know a bunch of other Atlasia people would suddenly flock here to line up in the same way.

I would be interested in this thing except that it's obviously becoming Atlasia2 where people can just be zombies again. Great fun.

I've came back after a few days and it seems like that. I think the number of parties is high; I think there should be a left, centre and a right party and leave it like that. I'd also be keen on 'de-Americanising' this thing. I mean 'Constitution Party?' What constitution? What if ours is very liberal Smiley

I agree with afleitch. A British or French style government would be nice.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

It will be a unitary state. The President will be elected in even-numbered months; he will have the authority to appoint and dismiss Prime Ministers, and also to dissolve the National Assembly. Any one National Assembly can sit for 45 days before being automatically dissolved. The Prime Minister shall appoint the government, which shall be responsible to the National Assembly. If we should choose at some point to create an upper house, the government would also be responsible to that house.

How do you intend elections to be run?

That is to be determined. Simulated elections, though they certainly have their merits, may not be feasible.

I oppose running elections like in Atlasia, since that encourages stupid players, zombies and sh**t in general.

Recall that voting would be by list at any rate. This would decrease zombie effects.

It might be interesting to have a Senate based on the Northern Irish model.

What's the Northern Irish model? I was thinking like the Victorian (Australian) model would be a possible way of ensuring minority representation through PR, but not letting the numbers drop to insignificant 4% levels (50 Senators all off the one ballot).

I wholeheartedly endorse this opinion.

Each lower house elects a certain number of Senators through STV, and the Senators' terms last a fixed number of Parliaments.

I don't see why not, especially as it would be easy to incorporate party membership stuff into how election results are calculated.

Virtually the same thing, then. The Victorian model, instead of a certain number of Senators per seat fixes eleven seats to one Region, and then elects five Upper House MLCs (Senators by another name still smell as, well, of talcum powder...) by STV.

If we have a powerful and active constitutional court in this, then it might as well be Atlasia - and there would be no point to that. I can accept that elements of Atlasia might be needed to make something on this sort of scale work here, but there are limits.
