Hey, everybody.

This is the locked, archived thread from when I was the 8th Governor of the Pacific from July 17, 2010 until March 14, 2011. Prior to that I was Lt. Governor for a couple of months.

It's kept as it was when I was elected to the Senate, kind of like if I'd died or something, but really it's so if, or when, I return to regional politics I'll have a handy office ready. Tongue

Anyway, there's some useful information here, if you're looking for it. Smiley







Hello, Pacific citizens and other assorted Atlasians! I'm Oakvale, Governor of the region, and here's some useful information. Smiley


General information

Introduction to Atlasia

Offices

Office of the Governor, Oakvale (...)
Office of the Lieutenant Governor, ArchangelZero.
The Pacific Court, headed by Justice fuzzybigfoot

Articles on the wiki:

The Pacific
Our laws
The Pacific Constitution




Note: The first few pages of this thread date from my time as Lieutenant Governor, so skip ahead to get to the current stuff.

There is as much chance of a Populares candidate running in the Pacific as there is an ice cube standing a chance in hell.

Hell, I'd probably vote for them just to break the monotony.

But yeah, the Pacific seems to be the most left-wing of the regions, as far as I can tell.

So, I've been elected to a position in which, I won't deny, not much happens, in an uncontested election in an admittedly one-party region. Grin

You lucky bastard. I always faced competentive elections Angry

So, anyway, according to the wiki, as Lieutenant Governor, I've got the role of *cough* "responsible for supervising all elections and referenda" in the Pacific. So, yeah, I'll be doing that. And, if anything happens, poking my head into the legislature and shouting things.

You lucky bastard, in Midwest I had nothing to do Angry

Well you see I tried to do something about that last summer. As a result,  I accidentally brought, the closest think to Osama Bin Laden this game will see, into the game. Most of the Pacific Conservatives are also no longer in the Pacific. Well I won't restate the history, its easily available.

By the way, I don't think we have been formerly introduced. My name is North Carolina "Crazy Old Yank" Yankee, Senator of the Southeast. Known for my controversal statements which my "friends" on the left love to remind me of and trying in vain to save this game from the gates of hell (and no I don't me active Religion, but the Religion of Activity). And they don't call be crazy for nothing, sometimes I just go really nuts. How about you? Anything special about you? Smiley

Good to meet you!

I dunno if there's anything particularly interesting about me, but I'm hoping to somehow magically restore activity to the Pacific region by begging other political parties to do something. Grin

Good luck with that. To quote the Great Alcon "We are content with the leftwing Monarchy of the Pacific, and as such we shall remain docile" or something along those lines.

We've had competitive elections before, but the JCP usually wins them anyway and the losers move to other regions (such as Xahar and Hamilton). Though regions becoming strongholds is nothing new. The DA owns the Mideast, and the Pops the Northeast. When the RPP was larger it dominated the Southeast.

Good luck! Smiley

Congrats oakvale. Whether your position means much is up to you. Engage with the issues and try to breath some life into the Pacific legislature (maybe even try to make it elected!).

Good luck. Smiley

So you mean if we force the gay to be exposed to the straight, we are treating the gay indecently?  Because you didn't specify which direction the hate was supposed to go there, Black Beans.

For the sake of making some kind of announcement, I've happily discovered that I can, in fact, vote in the Pacific legislature.

Like this.

Obviously, I have voted to regulate snowmobiles solely because of Sarah Palin's snowmobiling snowmobilin' husband.

As the Toddster pointed out to Greta Van Sustren (in kind of a dicky way, IIRC), it's a snow machine, thank you.

To the surprise of absolutely no-one, I've endorsed the Purple State/Marokai Blue ticket for the upcoming Presidential election.

I especially like their ambitious reform plan, which involves a "reboot" of the whole Atlasia game-thing.

Largely bumping this thread for it's own sake:

Firstly, I'd like to congratulate President & Vice-President elect Purple State and Marokai Blue. I was always fairly sure they'd win, but it was a surprisingly large victory nonetheless. Hopefully their 'game reform' ambitions will go according to plan. Smiley

In other news, there's a vote in the ol' Pacific Legislature about repealing something called the "Accuracy in Balloting Act". Unfortunately, I have literally no idea what this is, so I'll be aimlessly waiting around in the hope that someone lets slips what "Accuracy in Balloting" means and why it's

a) Awesome and should be enshrined in ours hearts and minds


or

b) Evil and should be sent to the lake of ice in the deepest circle of hell for all of eternity.

I will also be grubbing around, meandering and vaguely considering running for some kind of other Atlasian office.

 Also, hollering hollerin'.
