    The Minister of Foreign Affairs is responsible for all matters involving treaties with foreign nations and all espionage activities. This includes Trade Embargoes, Military Alliances and the use of Spies to acquire technologies.

    if you are a registered citizen you can vote. also, this is the nomination thread, not the election thread. the election polls will be up in a few days, then you can vote for Nobody. until then, there will be platforms, and debates, and other political stuff.

    Before every says "Lets vote Nobody!" first hear the policies. besides that phrase sounds funny... Vote Nobody and the government will be empty. Ok time to get back on track here...

    Introduction

    As Nobody and other candidates probably know, writing a policy for a game that has not started is difficult. There is no map to work with and no rivals to work against; it's very difficult. This is what I plan to do and NOT become:

    Old man Icmanci? First of all I am 11 years old which (here in Canada) is not very old. And second I do not know an "Icmanci," let alone tell him and his family to get out of town because of "nobodys" election plan. Trust me, nobody, if I find them, they'll know.

    Well then Citizens of Fanatikos, it is up to you. Prosperity will come no matter which you vote for, it just might come in different forms. I will not be crushed should I fail, I might even become a translator so that foreign leaders can understand nobodys treaties. Without further ado, the Policy.

    Expansion

    Although expansion and exploration is handled by the President and the military Foreign Affairs plays a certain part and gets a slice of the pie. I hope for a solid Defense Minister who can defend our settlers but can also avoid unnecessary conflicts between two nations. Although the slice of Expansionist Pie is small (and it's probably cocanut cream, yuck!) I will push our defense minister to explore every tile on that damn map. Expansion to strategic locations is a MUST! Coastal locations for trade and military are a MUST! Exploration of the coast is a MUST! We cannot conclude to diplomacy with there is no one to talk to! And Espionage Will be used as well, even before spies. Embassies play a strong role but they are useless if we do not now any locations to use them in. Without any contact to other civs this job is useless. Expansion and exploration must be directed to finding other nations. As a quick summary:

    - Expansion to strategic locations is critical (i.e. contact with the sea)
    - Reconaissance of coastlines is extremely useful
    - Military exploration of the land is critical
    - Contact with other civs in absoulutely needed

    I will try to have this effect on the Expansion.

    Military

    Foreign Affairs has alot of influence of the military. They cannot send units to fight if their is nothing to fight (exactly why I will push for exploration). I will also get constant military feedinhg of information to the Foreign Affairs department. Every treaty I attempt to sign I will form on the Trade and Military advisors needs. I will also need to be informed of all military ambitions.

    During a state of war I will make every move for peace. Or in a state of conflict between two foreign nations to set up a demilitarized zone. The DMZ will be a string of forts, barricades and airporst occupied by Fanatikos soldiers in a foreign country. It could be around a City or around a strategic resourse
    just to keep that nation alive. DMZs will only be set up if Fanatikos ambitions are threatened.

    A quick summary:

    - War will only be declared if absoulutely necessary
    - AWar will not be declared for stupid reasons
    - Allies will be considered with the Defense Minister
    - Peace will always be attempted
    - DMZs will be set up if Fanatikos interests are threatened and approved by the Defense Minister

    That will be my role in influencing the military

    Foreign Affairs

    ROF treaties will only be concluded for military or expansionist purposes. I will push for a road system linking every Foreign Nations of the island/continent to Fanatikos. Foreign wars will be looked into and only joined if there are strategic benefits. Every treaty concluded will be benefial to Fanatikos.

    Conclusion

    That is all I have to say. Voting for me will allow properity peacefully but I will force issues if needed. Voting for me and I will make sure that my policies are completed. I am not a war mongerer who will "Push the Button," I am peacefull. But the othere nations will be warned: Don't mess with Fanatikos.

    Any questions?

    Icmancin has my support; he tries to win by posting his platform, not mud slinging at the other candidates...

    I appreciate your support Black_Hole. Is there anything you'd like to question? Or anybody else like to question?
