Up Next: Reports on Northeast, followed by Midwest and Pacific.

I haven't forgotten about the Regional Roundabout. Hopefully that will have an update sometime in the next two weeks.

Great work on the budget!  Do you happen to have the public debt figure (or did I miss it)?

$12 trillion, ouch.

Didn't Atlasia avoid the Iraq War, Bush tax cuts, and other budget busters that affect the United States?

The Iraq War didn't end until my End To Imperialism Act passed.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

Yes, but I thought that was an accounting error, and no money was actually being spent on it.  Hmm...someone really needs to compile a GM history.  I have an Atlasian economic history compiled in a spreadsheet, but it only goes up to 2006 or thereabouts.

If we had troops over there, which we did, it cost money. Lots of money.

That fiasco is still mind boggling to me.  Like I said, we need an official history.

No, mostly, and we've had plenty of budget busters of our own.

Surely the National Insurance Program would be a large additional cost?

Yes, though it also has it's own taxes. My suspicion is that the program has its own deficit that our government is liable for, but I haven't done the calculations.  The program was established with  a very complicated bill. Looking at the bill again, I'm reading Section 2, clause 7:
"The Federal Government shall be responsible for providing the Functioning funds to the NSSA. The Department of Internal Affairs shall be able to decide the amount of those funds. The Functioning funds devolved to the NSSA shall be subject to a vote in the Senate."
So I guess the functioning funds should have technically been included in the budget I published, but there's a whole 'nother process involved that I don't quite get.
A committee is supposed to be convened at this Fall on the budget for the program. That seems like a while off, considering meanwhile we may be bleeding an unknown amount of red ink and/or taxing people more than we realize.

I was just going over the amount of money spent total and I think you had a mathematical error with the Transportation Spending. It's a bit over the 70-odd billion that you had written on the original post. Or did I do my math wrong? Thanks Smiley

Nice catch. I'm not sure how that happened. It's been corrected and all totals adjusted accordingly.

I just realized that ANSE is the Atlasian National Stock Exchange, and basically replaced the NYSE in 2009.  So, I may be going back and changing some posts to reflect this.   

To the folks who've been around longer than I have - if I seem to be ignorant of an important institution or event in Atlasia in my GM posts, please let me know. Smiley

I'm wondering if anyone knows if it's okay for the GM to put together a story for someone else to publish, or to give the GM approval to a post from another Atlasian media source.  There's something I'd like to do but I can't really do it on the "inside."

Purple State and I would often take news articles, re-purpose certain terms to fit Atlasia, and edit them down to a handful of paragraphs. No one's complained so far, so I say just go for it.

As Marokai said, it's common practice.  Badger did it too.

This is done. I've also gone back in and added currency exchange information.

Gm Shua, might you have any valuable information for my region, especially concerning our budget? More specifically I am interested in seeing the public vs. Private breakdown for things like education, employment, healthcare and transportation in my region.

Do you know if the northeast has ever passed a budget?

If I remember correctly, they drew their budget out of thin air without moderator approval, and then got all pissy when I tried to fix it (this is back when I was SoIA).  Perhaps it has been fixed, though.

What legislation has the IDS passed that accounts for the low (relative to all the others) unionization rate?
