    We can be the Red Tapers of DC. We'd have to play as America or England, of course, as no other democratic (as they say) civ would admit to such a screwed up system!

    :lol: There ya go. And for role-playing we could all wear poofy wigs, strap a plank to our spine, and hold a turd under our nose so we could make face like Margret Thatcher. :lol:

    While were at it, we might as well just appoint Kennith Starr to the post of CJ so we can always have a fresh batch of things to PI.
    Now whos willing to play Clinton to Starr?

    Ok, people I just went through the polls and averaged out the number of voters for the last 30 polls.
    Our most recent 10 polls (keep in mind that a couple of them are still open) had an average of 18 voters each. I combined 2 of Noldo's polls as one of them was closed early and had no botes.

    The next 10 polls back had an average of 19.5 voters each. This was due to the 2 polls for the chat-goers halting the chats. One had 30 voters :rolleyes: and the other had 25. This raised the average up some.

    The last group of 10 polls had an average of 17 voters, so it seems our voting base is improving somewhat. So basically we averaged 18 voters per poll for the last 30 polls.

    Now...with the Nominations coming up, we should be looking at our elected Offices. The President/DP and Vice President makes 2. The six council members make 8 and their Deputies make 14. The 3 Justices make 17. Seventeen positions to be filled.

    This means pretty much everyone gets a job. To make this election process a little easier, why don't we post below what positions we'd like to have. This would make Nominations and voting go a lot smoother. As this is the first election of the game, anyone can run for President. Same with all of the other Offices. If you're new to the game hang on and maybe choose a ballot that doesn't have that many people in it. Or go for broke, it's up to you. Just have fun.

    According to this poll anyone can run for more than one Office, but don't over-extend yourself or get too annoying. ;)

    I've listed the Offices below. Please post below if you are interested in running for one or more of them. I'm not sure if their will be a Minister of Labor and Finance, but if you're interested in it put that down too. Thanks!

    Aren't we doing noms two days from now anyway?

    I'm thinking about running for President, Governor, and CJ, but may limit it to only one depending on how the other noms go.

    I'd be interested in culture.

    Sign me up for Governor for now. :)

    About that: In the start of the game, could we not have one governor per city? And as the nation grows, governors will get more and more cities to control?

    Hey! Who let that penquin loose in here? :lol: :eek:

    I don't think we should have one Governor per city or reconsider the failed 5cc idea. We might want to consider a second Province after 5 cities, though.
