Two alliances, with any random number of parties in each one. Each party must join one of the alliances, at least originally.

As I see it, it'd be left vs. the rest, depending on the political stance of the francophones.

Atlasia worked because there were two parties to start off with, with aclear divide.

I like it, as long as it will bring some life to the game again. Two possible names:

Progressive Coalition/La Coalition Progressive

Citizen's Federation/La Fédération Du Citoyen

La Coalition Progressiste and La Fédération Citoyenne.

Something along the lines of the French "alliances"

Plural Left (PS, PCF, DVG, MRC, RDG) vs. Union of the Right/Centre (UMP, NC) and allowing some parties to be outside of that (such as the far-right or extreme centrists and far-left).

Forcing parties into one of the two alliances wouldn't be good IMO, we should have larger alliances (like the 2 I described above) and some parties outside of that. I was thinking, for now, please correct me if I'm wrong:

Plural Left (Social Democrats, Labour) vs. Union of the Right (Conservatives, PC) vs. Centrists (FDP, SoCred, Social Liberals)? Or join the centre and the right? Centre and left? Make one of those not aligned with either?

Split the center. Two blocs. Otherwise it won't work; at least initially there should be two directly opposed blocs fighting for power only between temseves.

What is going to be the primary issue facing the nation at the start?  As I have positioned SoCreds, I'd need to know that in order to determine which alliance the party would join.

Obviously, the constitution, but i'd suggest federalism would be a pretty major early issue.

Great idea Hugh Smiley.

BTW: When's this thing going to get underway? Bertie Flynn can't sit around for too much longer or he'll see the Madam Wink.

If the two blocs are Right and Left, then social/welfare and economic policy.

I've suggested in the past we establish things so that we already have a European, even post-Communist economic system with the far left wishing to maintain it, the moderate left and right wishing it to be 'preened' through market forces, but retaining free health etc and the far right (economically) wishing to abolish it.

That gives not only a right v left battleground, but also some internal divisions too.
