For the enrichment of citizens in the Midwest, I hereby disclose all of the following information...



Adam Griffin

Imperial Speaker (Current); Southern Legislator (Current)




Basic Information

Date of Birth: Circa 1988

Ideology: Social Neo-Populism

Religion: Agnosticism

Region: Imperial Dominion of the South

Party: Labor Party of Atlasia

Corruption Status: Dubious


Public Administration

Q: Which is more important: excellent results or an excellent process?
A:  Results, for process exists solely for such.

Q: Who should have more power in federalism: the nation or regions?
A:  The nation must quite often keep a leash handy.

Q: Would a potent, highly-effective executive do more good or harm?
A:  Sociopathy is both a disadvantage and prerequisite for leadership.

Q: Should public officials be accountable to each other, or the people?
A:  They have the word 'public' in their role, correct?

Q: Should public officials be expected to implement the people’s will?
A:  When feasibility permits. The people can often be deluded.

Q: Are checks and balances, and separation between powers desirable?
A:  Absolutely, for that is from where amusement derives.

Q: Which is best: governing from the bottom-up or from the top-down?
A:  Policy should always be focused at blossoming from below.

Q: Should governments be organized hierarchically, or egalitarian-like?
A:  In neither sense is someone guaranteed power.

Q: Should a government delegate its duties to private service providers?
A:  No.

Q: Is it okay for a leader to award their supporters preferential treatment?
A:  Yes, it (and my VISA) are universally accepted.


Political Worldview

Q: What is the correct role for good or legitimate states?
A:  To guarantee human rights are protected, to provide for its people in basic fashion and to maintain a sound, fair, competitive economic system at any cost.

Q: What makes a leader or elected official good or bad?
A:  A leader's responsibility is to organize, motivate and fight like hell for what they believe. Inactivity, apathy and lethargy are the tell-tale signs of a bad leader.

Q: Are people beholden to some form of human nature?
A:  We very much still possess the basic programming that we possessed from the time we crawled out of the bush. Human nature is unavoidable, primitive and downright disgusting. It should also be embraced to its fullest.

Q: Are people bestowed with natural, inalienable rights?
A:  All things are guaranteed a beginning, an end and chaos throughout. Civil society is the only thing that protects and guarantees what some consider to be natural rights. It can be argued that such rights originate from government alone, which is a manifestation of the people's will.

Mr. X

Mideast Assemblyman (Current)




Basic Information

Date of Birth: N/A

Ideology: Social Liberalism

Religion: N/A

Region: Mideast

Party: Liberal Party

Corruption Status: Clean


Public Administration

Q: Which is more important: excellent results or an excellent process?
A:  Both are important, but in the end I would have to say excellent results.

Q: Who should have more power in federalism: the nation or regions?

Q: Would a potent, highly-effective executive do more good or harm?
A:  All things being equal, it would do more good than harm.

Q: Should public officials be accountable to each other, or the people?
A:  The people

Q: Should public officials be expected to implement the people’s will?
A:  Since we are . . . [not] a direct democracy, I would have to say no. . . .

Q: Which is best: governing from the bottom-up or from the top-down?

A:  No . . .

Q: Is it okay for a leader to award their supporters preferential treatment?
A:  No


Political Worldview

Additional Comments

Q: Would you care to divulge any other political views? Please elaborate.

A:  My political philosophy can best be described as principled pragmatism.  I am both socially and economically left-leaning, but I also believe that those on the right and in the center have many good ideas and that the way to achieve prosperity is for our nation's factions to work together to negotiate compromises that combine everyone's best ideas.  It is important not to cave, but that doesn't preclude compromise.  There is a time and place for standing on ideological principle and their is a time and place for pragmatic governance.

For Further Reference

Please provide any links to posts on this forum containing information you believe would be pertinent to viewers of the archive in understanding your political perspectives. Campaign threads, posted results to quizzes of a political nature, and posted summaries of ones views in politics elsewhere on the forum are especially desired. Your cooperation would be sincerely appreciated but is not required; I will eventually dig around for and link to such posts myself.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Furthermore, I would like to announce this office is beginning to analyze past legislation in the Most Serene Republic (and from under preceding regimes) to verify its constitutionality. Expect declarations to be issued and links to the bills in question to be provided in the second post of this thread as incremental progress is made. This might take weeks to finish.

In the meanwhile, the Alþing is once again encouraged to provide a most generous appropriation of funding for the sure, expeditious construction and staffing of The Most Serene Library. We should likewise allocate resources for the establishment of our local Leaning Haberdashery Lounge. Neither are yet slated for establishment in spite of their inclusion in our constitution. Please do not make me introduce the legislation myself; the wisard is kept quite busy enough as it is with handling other pressing matters of state. Assuming that these measures are (against all odds) implemented within the next week, construction will still take several months. During which time, all throughout the winter, I will be stuck either in the local, public library or out here:


Do not leave me out in these snowy wastes forever. You will suffer blunt force trauma to the head. Inflicted by my staff. If I have to ask ya'll again, I may have to begin training Wobbles in the ways of castrating Folk Representanter. She is cute... yet has sharp fangs.

Surely I jest. Surely. Now everybody form a neat line. Come closer. I need to hug each of you. Feel the legend of our nation's story - that legend still flowing forth from the follicles of my magnificent but nevertheless rather uninspiring facial stubble! *hug hug hug* Angry

For the enrichment of citizens in the Midwest, I hereby disclose all of the following information...



Ben Kenobi

Southern Legislator (Current)




Basic Information

Date of Birth: May 18, 1981

Ideology: Conservatism

Religion: Catholicism

Region: Imperial Dominion of the South

Party: Imperial Bloc

Corruption Status: Clean


Public Administration

Q: Which is more important: excellent results or an excellent process?
A:  Excellent results.

Q: Who should have more power in federalism: the nation or regions?
A:  Regions should have greater power than the nation.

Q: Would a potent, highly-effective executive do more good or harm?
A:  Harm, I believe in checks and balances per Montesquieu.

Q: Should public officials be accountable to each other, or the people?
A:  The people.

Q: Should public officials be expected to implement the people’s will?
A:  Yes, absolutely.

Q: Are checks and balances, and separation between powers desirable?
A:  Yes, absolutely.

Q: Which is best: governing from the bottom-up or from the top-down?
A:  I support grassroots governance

Q: Should governments be organized hierarchically, or egalitarian-like?
A:  I'd have to ask you to define both terms.

Q: Should a government delegate its duties to private service providers?
A:  Constitutionally, powers like national defense are reserved to government.

Q: Is it okay for a leader to award their supporters preferential treatment?
A:  Yes.


Political Worldview

Q: What is the correct role for good or legitimate states?
A:  I am at the core a supporter of Hobbes, not Rousseau. A government governs best that governs least. I believe that a government should have the foremost interests of her peoples in mind and that a legitimate government should be elected by the people. I believe the people have the right to depose a government that has become corrupt. So taking all that together - a government has the duty of being the servant to the people.

Q: What makes a leader or elected official good or bad?
A:  Competence - the ability to discern between good decisions and bad decisions.

Humility - the ability to place the needs of his representatives above his own desires.

Passion - the ability to inspire others towards a greater goal.

Diligence - the ability to work at a task until the task is completed.

Accessability - the ability for the people to be able to reach me and express their concerns and desires.


Q: Are people beholden to some form of human nature?
A:  Yes, I believe in Hobbes, that there is a fundamental human nature and that that nature is evil. Ergo - government should have severe constraints to prevent them from oppressing the people and abusing the trust granted to them.

Q: Are people bestowed with natural, inalienable rights?
A:  Yes, to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I do not believe that rights are granted by the state, but by God, and that the state cannot create new rights out of whole cloth, nor can they take away existing rights.

Additional Comments

Q: Would you care to divulge any other political views? Please elaborate.

A:  I think you've covered the broad basics. As a Conservative Catholic, I believe in the humanity of the unborn and the preservation of traditional marriage. I do not support the death penalty, as I believe the state should not have that power. I support the rights of the individual over those of the community. I believe in religious freedoms and the fundamental equality of all people. I believe that men and women are equal in value, but not equal in form or function. We should not expect men and women to desire the same things, or to perform equally in all tasks. I believe that Atlasia was founded as a Christian nation and that other religions should respect the Christian basis for Atlasian society.

     Greetings, Wisard Extraordinær Redalgus I. The South has recently passed a bill to lobby Dave Leip to create a board for our own region, where we may engage in our own business without confusion and lost threads. I encourage you to consider joining us in our quest for a doctrine of one region, one board. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

     Sincerely, Emperor PiT.

As at least some folk may already be well aware, I've now been inactive here for one month.

It seems quite unlikely that my level of engagement with the fantasy government will increase within the foreseeable future - which brings me to the point of why I am posting. As of this time I encourage somebody to replace me for serving in this office because I will probably be dropping out of the simulation altogether so that I can concentrate what little time I can set aside for visiting the U.S. Election Atlas from time to time on other boards. Though perhaps a major inconvenience to some people - especially in the Midwest - the only alternative to this I can think of at this point is being inactive and non-responsive to PMs most of the time for several weeks at a stretch, which is not at all conducive to things getting done around here.

There were a lot of unrealized ideas I had for improving the quality of experience here in the Midwest, and what few projects I did embark on where never really seen through to fruition. In my typical fashion, I eagerly took on more responsibilities than I could realistically maintain enough motivation to satisfy over the long-run. You have my sincerest apologies for that, and I'll try to visit at least a couple times per week, but I'm quite busy on most days and am kind of in a process down-scaling the number of activities I try to juggle at once. If anyone needs anything please let me know and I'll respond as soon as I can, but please understand that I have far less energy and willpower to bring to the table than was the case a long while back.
