Mittelamerikan Politics

Post by Appe96 on Sat Sep 19, 2015 6:37 pm

I am not running my country with an iron fist in this RP. My actions are depending on various factors known as politics, which will shape my nations future. It will be like a minigame, which I and the rest of the world can directly or indirectly can influence to some degree.

For example. Let's say that there is an large communist revolution in America, this will increase the chance of there being a revolution in Mittelamerika, and even more so than if it would be an revolution in Rome.
A conservative government will in the long run create more and more militant liberals, and only social reforms will stop the militancy and spread of liberals. However if I do social reforms too soon, my conservative elite may get angry, however if I do it too late, I may face nationwide unrest such as strikes or rebellions (I will deduct PP and Currency from my nation if there are strikes).

This will be represented by various modifiers and some times dice rolls, which will decide the state of politics in my nation. If a modifier gives +1% Abolitionist membership for example, then 1% of my population will join the Abolitionist cause every cycle, and they will directly influence which political families will be in power over my country.

This also affects my diplomacy. My nation will not be allied to a country if they don't have a good standing people, and even this will be determined by modifiers. An embassy may increase relations, but will not simply cut it. Treaties needs to be signed and there may need to be cultural/ideological similarities and/or historic friendship before I may agree to some things.

I rather appreciate if no one posted in this thread. Any comments can go to my OOC thread in Nations OOC!

Bundesrat

The Bundesrat (Federal Council) are the legislative chamber of Mittelamerika and serves as unicameral version of the United States Congress.

Founded in 1648 under Article I of the Mittelamerikan constitution, the Bundesrat originally represented three Länder (States); Geldland, Welserland and West Indien. However with settlement of the Trockesien region, it was added as a fourth Land to be represented by the Bundesrat.

The Bundesrat currently has 10 seats and are located in the Reichstag of Mittelamerika in Karlsburg. Each Land has 2 senators, with the capital city of Karlsburg also having two seats. The city of Karlsburg and its surrounding area is considered a sort of enclave which the Federation has complete administrative power over. While the Länder are semi-autonomous.

Each senator...

Political Census

It breaks down into several categories, the first being the overall voters ideology, then the overall peoples ideology, then it goes more into detail one the ideologies for each respective social class.

There are also predictions on how the public opinion will change (modifiers), so one can get a general idea on how the political factions are rising.

Welser - 16%

Reactionary - 17%

Revolutionary Movements

Partisanen von der Vaterland
An independence movement, that seeks to throw off the shakels of the old world from the Mittelamerikan people, like their neighbours to the North did in 1776. But also to grant more political and social liberty to the ordinary Mittelamerikan man.

It has had various successes and downfalls throughout history. Their first achievement were to overthrow the Governor that the Emperor had appointed for the colony in the 1600s, resulting in the constitution of 1645 and an largely increased autonomy of the colony from continental Europe. They were also responsible for the crisis of 1788-1789, fueled by the American war of independence, the revolutionaries had gained enough public support to enforce an trade embargo towards the Empire untill more autonomy was achieved. Their goals were even here met with success, and formed the basis of the Treaty of Neu Augsburg in 1789, which gave the colony even more autonomy.

Since then they have lost the many of their more than million of supporters which they had back in 1788, as the independence fever died down. However today they are taking a more and more active role in popular politics and dominates much of the liberal sector.

Abolitionistbewegung

They have long been a liberal pain in the aristocrats backside, and were a driving force for the Mittelamerikan slave rebellion of 1731, which ultimately resulted in the destruction of the Abolitionist forces by the Mittelamerikan Landwehr. Since then, the movement has tried to rebuild to launch a new attack against the system of slavery, either through warfare or democracy.
