    In the interests Competition, and Rising the Cream, and all those other phrases that mean finding the best person for the task at hand, I nominate DaveMcW and Kylearan (separately, of course :))

    Be aware that this first term will not involve a huge commitment of time, in case that's an issue.

    I accept.

    I also nominate anyone who has been President in a past demogame. The first 20 turns are more about establishing a working system than brilliant strategy, so prior experience is very valuable.

    What sort of working system do you envision?

    Also, could you comment on your prior experience with Civ4?

    I served as President in the 2nd and 3rd terms in the Civ3 MTDG, and I helped our team get a really good Presidential reporting system that we've continued to use ever since.

    I'll be happy to share that format and any experience I have with whoever wins!

    Let the races begin!

    Question for DaveMcW (And any others that join the race…)
    Do you plan to run all the departments yourself, or do you anticipate appointing any department heads?
    (Maybe a bit superfluous with so little to do in the first 20 turns?)

    Hi,

    Thanks, but I have to decline for reasons spelled out in the "Nominations the head of the Office of Domestic Policy" thread.

    Here is my platform:

    Department of the Budget
    I will run this myself and reserve all gold for deficit research.

    Department of Civics
    I will run this myself and maintain the status quo. I do not think there a benefit to changing civics during my term, even if we discover one like slavery. That can be an issue in the next election.

    Department of Imperial Expansion
    I will run this myself and open a discussion on the placement of our first city. I have a lot of Civ4 experience evaluating starting locations, including several GOTM and HOF games.

    Department Council on Religion
    I am willing to appoint someone to lead a discussion about religion choices, but I do not plan to do anything myself.

    Playing the Game
    I will work to establish a turn instruction system that allows anyone in the Chain of Command to play with confidence. I am committed to keeping the game moving quickly, and I should be able to play the save less than 12 hours after receiving it. But 12 hours is still too long, so I will authorize officers in the Chain of Command to play the game above and beyond the pace written in the Constitution.

    Note: According to the constitution, the economy slider is determined by the Domestic Dept. The Department of the Budget determines how to allocate the funds already in the Treasury.

    Other than that, the platform looks pretty good.

    In the event That I win the race for the Domestic Department I will maintain a 100% science rate for the first term. :)

    I am sensing a distinct lack of competition here! Now is my chance to do some negotiating. ;)

    Things I don't like about being President:
    - Everyone keeps giving orders in different threads. It would make my job a lot easier if officials could agree on a single place to post their orders.
    - Requests for statistics about our nation. That's the job of the Department of Intelligence and Analysis, run by the Foreign Minister. I will only post screenshots of maps, cities, and ingame events if re-elected President.

    Understood :salute:

    To make you job easier I suggest having a similar Thread to which I have maintained for the Department Of the Domestic Office Turn orders

    If everyone from each department posted once per turn in a similar format, then it would make the Presidents Life easier. (I.E. State if there are no orders for that turn. (Once you set up the template it is easy to copy and paste, and make the required changes)

    As for statistics concerning :science:, :hammers: and worker orders I will do my best to keep those comming if re elected.
