Anyone willing to revive this... We'll just do it under the old Antilla name. For now, only established parties, no new creations until it can be feasable. Three main parties:

Social Democratic Party (SDP) - Traditional social democrats who advocate third way positions between right and hard left wings. Favor a "welfare state" but also keeping the capitalist mode of economy with partial intervention. Thought of as the centrist party that promotes "big tent" center-leftism.

Popular Movement Party (PMP) - The right leaning conservative party in Antilla. They favor major social intervention to protect traditional values that they hold dear and only minor government interference in the economy. Divided between hawks and doves in military spending policy.

Antillan Labor Party (ALP) - The far left party. Generally communistic and communitarian, they have poor relations with both other parties and tend to be lone wolves. Social issues are less important to them than maintaining a solid economic platform.

Say 500 parliamentary seats. We simulate whatever ones aren't occupied by players.

I'd be willing to play, but not with this party system. You've essentially created a center-right party that would alienate most of it's potential supporters on here as well as give the country two left wing parties against one right wing party Smiley

Yes; I'm not sure why there's always been pressure in the Mock Parliament games to have parties imposed on us.

Reviving it for real this time? I don't like to be teased.

I'm willing to play, but I'd like to know a little bit about the country.

I did that only based on what used to be the Atlas memberships. This place is generally center-left, but hey, I mean I'm good with whatever you guys want to do.

I'm willing to roleplay as any ideology, so I'm comfortable joining whichever party is shorthanded, regardless of what kind of party system we use. Still, I think it would be cool if players could create their own parties, and then narrow those parties down to at most five. This will allow players some freedom as to how the parties develop, while still maintaining a bit of realism in that not everyone will be a perfect ideological fit for their party.

Sounds fair. I'm not any good at making maps or anything like that, but if anyone wants to draw up a map, we can sketch a rough history of the country.

Here we go. This is based on the real, uninhabited island of St Kilda (but alot bigger) The province/state boundaries are in red, capital cities in pink. The national capital is the biggest city. The island to the north west is a potentially cecessionist island. That's for me and Hash Cheesy

I'm interested to play along, but I'd prefer parties to be more or less consistent. (Doesn't mean they have to be imposed tho)

I'd be keen on having the island settled by the British...but who knows.

Okay. So here's the idea.

The nation is a big island in the North Sea between Scotland/England and Norway. As such it was settled by Danes/Norwegians, Scots and the English. The place names are all bastardized. Peterford and Lindsay are 'English', Fiskby, Bronseland and Marksland are 'Danish/Norwegian' and the Island of Pitfarris is 'Scottish'. Of course the nation itself has been independent of all these nations since the 1500's. The old language was a mix of Danish and English but has now been mostly replaced by English. Pitfarris is somewhat more isolated and more independently minded.

So, could someone give me a general overview of what this whole thing is about? If so, I'd be interested in participating.

BUMP! Let's not just talk about getting this started, let's actually do it this time!

You basically roleplay as a member of Parliament in a fictional country. While all of the details haven't actually been ironed out, we do actually have a map and a little bit of the country's history this time, which is a step further than we've gotten in previous incarnatons.

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
