Unless Bacon King would like to say otherwise (you are the master, after all), I think we should have an OOC chat about what's what.

For instance, what time is it?  2007?  2057?  1957?  I suggest somewhere around 1980-1990; that way, Bacon won't have to work too hard for foreign affairs events.

Also, how should elections work?  Are we in favor of the idea from Eutopia where half of the seats are distributed in proportion to members' votes and half are the GM's decisions?

Like I said, the final say should be Bacon King's... but maybe one of us will come up with a good idea or two Smiley

Personally, just from a history writing stand point, it would be easier if this was just after the Cold Water, between 1988 and 1992, since that would make it quite easy to fit the rush to democracy in Antillia with the wider world movement towards democracy and freedom at the end of the Cold War.

I'd say we have a 1 year lag-so that we can still talk with current terminology, of current technologies, and with current ideologies, but so that international affairs have a structure in historic event passage. Maybe even a lag as short as three months.

I'm bumping this whole section... The OOC Convention just seemed the best place to do it.

I like the ideas of either 1990ish or just a single-year lag. Or, even, present day- that way we could respond to real global events as they happen. It's really up to you guys.

The danger of doing it present-day is that we would, inevitably, be working at a very different pace to the present day.

1990 (or thereabouts) is good.

I do think present-day would be a mistake, but in my opinion 1992 is less practical than 2006, or at least 2002.

I think 1972 would be interesting, as that was the time that decolonization was being completed. The idea of a Cold War policy is also appealing.

I would suggest to people, just for my easy of creating a reasonable history for this country, that a year between 1989-1993 is used. This era of a "spring of democracies" which saw the fall of many dictatorial countries would be the most logical time for a country like Antillia to break away from prior dictatorship.

Using STV, the count stands at 4 votes for a 15-year lag, and 3 for 17.

In this poll each selection is equally valued, and it will conclude in roughly 12 hours (24 hours after the vote opened).

I had thought we were using preference voting not STV.  That makes the count, assuming that Colin's comment is treated as a vote for a 15 or 17-year lag, the two values that fit his time frame:

No lag: 0
3-month lag: 0
1-year lag: 3
5-year lag: 1
15-year lag: 4
17-year lag: 7
27-year lag: 3
35-year lag: 1

Unless we get some vote switchers or several new parlimentarians, it looks like we'll have a 17-year lag. making this 1990.
