Has there been any decision on the type of electoral system we'll be using? If not, I'd quite like to use the Italian model. Wink

I think we should keep things simple. I suggest a simple form of proportional represenation. I found a website online that will quickly apportion seats using the d'Hondt method. It even allows for setting a threshold that is required for a party to gain seats.

I just used a generic Social Democratic name, but that can be changed later. I also used the old name as well, but if we want, that can be edited.

SPEAKER

Order!

Since there are MPs sitting currently, the floor is open. Motions to recognize?

I really wouldn't know where to start. What kind of issues does Antilla face at the moment?

Well, a maritime nation, so obviously trade, defense, etc. issus... Say unemployment is 6% and the economy is stagnant, experiencing no growth with whatever the previous government was.

There seems to be some confusion about where to start in the game, and I think the best way to start is for us to actually form a government.

Personally, I think the best way of doing this would be to put a cap on the amount of players who can join* and once that's full, see who can form the most stable coalition (since I doubt one party will have enough by themselves).  Now, I know we want this to be different from Altasia, but I think we at least need a PM in the game.

Just my two cents! Grin

* I didn't suggest a number since I'm not sure what would be the most viable, any ideas?

I can already imagine the Pitfarris Nationalists trying to install a Pitfarris Assembly at every amendment! Grin

Since this is rolling how about the create some details about the "New" revamped Antilla:

Union of Antilla
Population: 2,671,897
Capital: St. Marks (pop. 511,384)

I have an image in my gallery of where Antilla would be located/size?
Its a start?

Going add some more, let me know what you think (used the link proved for simple PR)
Election results:
•SocialDemocrats (37.9%): 190
•Liberal (23.5%): 118
•Cooperative (20.2%): 101
•Nationalist(Pf) (10.8%): 54
•PopularMovement (7.6%): 37

Votes 1551242 of 1867102 (16.9% abstention).
Last election saw the defeat of the Liberal / Popular Movement coalition which suffered a backlash due to poor economic management including a failed attempt to privatise BankAntilla (state owned bank), and proposed public sector and spending cuts.
The Pitfarris Nationalist won a huge vote on the island, earning for the first time over 50% of the vote (reflected in the 10% nationwide).
The relatively new Cooperative Party (created 3yrs ago by dissident leftist SD's and the smaller Green Party (primarily urban) and Agrarian Party(mostly rural)) performed better than expected with a popular former governor as leader and more radical platform;
The SDP (the traditionally strongest of the parties) will be tasked with governing, being returned to power after 5yrs in opposition.

Ceremonial monarchy seems proper.

So, bullmoose, if you don't mind having absolutely no power whatsoever, I see no reason why you can't be king.

I'm totally cool with having the throne speech spoon fed to me for "reading," making Phillipesque gaffes "abroad," giving "my royal assent," and doing all the pomp/circumstance.

Leave the real legislating for the real legislators.

Nice to see this starting up - maybe - again. I know just what sort of character is needed as well...

Wrt to the other thing; no progress likely in the near future (lack of time), but vague ambitions of making it work again. Because for the brief time that it did it was quite good. Enough of that for now though.

Well, first I think we should lower the size of the Parliament.  500 just seems too large for Antillia.  Perhaps 300?

Anyone have a suggestion for my royal name...First Name of course is most important, but if someone wants to do a royal history to come up with my surname that would be...fun (i guess).  I would fill in the gaps with stories of debauchery, conspiracy, stupidity etc in order to make you (naturally) question why kings and queens are even necessary in the first place.

Just to note that Pitfarris should have a functioning (but non playable) Assembly; similar to Scotland/Wales. The hope is that what goes on in Pitfarris can 'parody' the constitutional struggle about to happen in Scotland Smiley

Blurb;

The Island of Pitfarris is geographically to the west of Antilla. The side of the island facing Pitfarris is extemely mountainous, making accessability difficult. The west of Pitfarris, in which Auldurgh is situated is relatively flat. It was here, that Scottish settlers, under mandate of the King of Scots landed and founded the city of Auldburgh in 1470. In 1468 Pitfarris was pledged by Christian I, in his capacity as king of Norway, as security against the payment of the dowry of his daughter Margaret, betrothed to James III of Scotland. As the money was never paid, the island became subject to the Scottish crown. Pitfarris thrived and boomed after the Union of The Crowns in 1603. Apon the Act of Union in 1707, Pitfarris was detached from Scotland and combined with Antilla to the anger of Pitfarris nationalists ever since. Upon Antillan independence, Pitfarris remained part of the new state.
