    Aretian Democratic Party

    We have all seen how the exclusive institutions of a representative system restrict input and hamper national planning. The Aretian Democratic Party will rule by the principles of equality and openness.

    There will be no government positions aside from a turn player.

    If any player has something to contribute simply post it. All game play decisions will be decided by majority vote of all citizens of Aretania.

    Each turn set will be played by a turn player dedicated to following the orders agreed to by majority vote.

    The turn player must be a member of the Areian Democratic Party but will be elected by majority vote of all citizens of Aretania.

    That’s all the rules we need.

    If this party wins the election we will have to research Democracy (2 turns) followed by 2 turns of anarchy while we switch civics to:
    Universal Suffrage, Free Speech, Emancipation, Free Market, Free Religion.

    P.S. I’m not married to the name so if you think of something cooler please post.

    Welcome aboard Cyc.

    The Avatar is Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Yes they are junk food people although I imagine they would prefer to be called fast food people.

    I propose an amendment that allows any DGer to serve as turn player regardless of faction membership. The turn player will be required to abide by agreed upon instructions posted in the TC thread so I don't think faction membership needs to be a requirement.

    Well you're not since this thread is for Aretian Democratic Party Faction members.

    @Furiey, when a turn player creats a TC thread they will probably want to post some ideas they have for the turn set and then everyone can post comments suggestions etc. If it gets really contentious then we'll probably need a poll thread. This is what has been happening all along of course except that discussions in the Assembly Thread were restricted to about four people and discussion was practically nil as a result.

    Also I hope that we will be persuing a goal now rather than just mushing together orders from the four states. That should create more clearly defined goals which will help give direction to the turn sets.

    But, according to your faction ruleset, I am allowed. I am a citizen of Aretania. I had something to contribute, so I posted it.

    Yes everyone gets to decide about gameplay issues, but if you also want to have some control over how this faction is run you're going to have to actually join. All that requires is a post saying you want to join so it doesn't really exclude anyone.

    Sounds like a no-brainer to me. Factions stink anyway...

    Also, please sign me up for this faction, though I can't promise to hang around.

    Thanks Dutch and Welcome back to the game.

    Thats 2-0 in favor of the resolution. I'll leave it on the table until Wednesday when PF elections wrap up, then I'll update the first post with a ya or nay. For now though I'll add a membership list.

    In the mean time, where can I find the latest save, and what's the game plan right now? (Is there a game plan right now?)

    I did open a thread for a TC this Wednesday however everything still depends on the PF election. I will post the current save in that thread shortly.
