Government RP
« on: February 21, 2007, 07:10:26 pm »
I've had this idea for a while and so i finally decided to put it into play. This isn't really connected to the current RP world on Gamingsteve, but is instead in its own universe. The rules are after the little introductory. I don't really expect this to work, but i hope some people decide to join...

Overview
The Yukan Republic is in chaos. The borders are heavily manned after an uneasy peace was made between the Yukan people and the Imum 'Invaders', ending the First Galactic War with the taste of defeat in every Yukan mouth.
Pirates are a major problem within the outer worlds of the Yukan Republic. Trade has come to almost a complete stop because of the raids, while many civilians live in fear at the abesence of policing forces. Many different factions have arisen throughout the colonies calling for the downfall of the current government and for full power to be put into their own radical leaders preaching hate against the Imum Empire.
Along with the pirates is the Omom race, a small group of barbarians. They are the remnants of a once glorious race that ruled over several systems. Since then they have devolved into a group that has no real morales, only the want for power and wealth. Currently the Omom only roam the outer rim of the known galaxy, searching for their own relics and other artifacts that they can stumble across. That could soon change with the unrest of the Yukan Republic growing. But they could also be used against the Imum if war to erupt again...
Overall uneasiness has tossed the Yukan government into a vulnerable position as many people wish to see destruction rained down on the Imum people. But the government seems to only want peace, willing to give in to the many demands that the Imum Empire have been making. The time is ripe for taking power...


Starting Off
-You are a part of a small political group that has been growing in power. Recently you have gained the backing of the party and have been named leader.
--Create your own party as well as a character that is the leader. Secondary characters are allowed, but they aren't allowed a position in the current Yukan Senate.

-The current Yukan Senate is weak, and beforehand polls show almost every politician in power will be overturned, but the elections are still pretty open. There is enough time for bringing the people over to your side...
--Every once and a while new elections will be held, and different seats will go to different parties. There is a total of 500 seats.

-The different classes of Yuka are categorized into 5 sections:
1. Upper Class
2. Upper-Middle Class
3. Middle Class
4. Middle-Lower Class
5. Lower Class
--Each party will pretty much need to aim at one group. Later i will give the different % of population that each class has. After each new election the % will change due to certain things that might occur in between the elections. Try to predict which class will grow and begin to appeal to them...
---Like the different classes, each world is classified under a certain grouping:
1. Alpha Planet- These are the founding planets, mainly the industry of the Yukan Republic as well as the population centers.
2. Delta Planet- These are the inner worlds, but not part of the founding planets. These are mainly agriculutral and supply the Yukan Republic with food to survive.
3. Omega Planet- These are the outer colonies of the Yukan Republic. They are low in population. Their only real benefits are the resources that are located on planet, the real reason they were colonized in the first place.

Rules
-The power lies with the people. While each party has it's own 'military', using it would be unwise and lose favor with the people. Instead the crafty use of media as well as secret propaganda would be more wise.
-'Wars' can be declared between the parties, although it's not what you would think. Instead of full out firefights, agents are used in 'taking out' certain political people. These are 'wars'.
-There are no coups within the government. No one party can take over the entire government through an uprising. The only way to gain true power is through political manuevering and gaining the backing of the people.

I'll post more info as it comes along. Feel free to ask questions about things that might not be too clear. Go ahead and suggest things too.

Bills

In the event of a proposal, each creator chooses which way their party votes. Remember, each party is pretty much a totalitarian system. Pretty much all votes will go one way, because if they didn't, some sort of accident might occur to the Senators that didn't vote accordingly...

3/5 (301/500) votes are needed for the passing of a bill. And here's another little thing i'm adding.

There are two Consul positions in the Yukan Senate which act as a figurehead. Their elections are at seperate times as the Senate itself. The two highest parties elect one of their own to the seat of Consul. If that party has over 300 seats, then they are able to choose both of the Consuls. There has not been an election of the Consuls yet, so the Liberals still have both Consul positions.

Consuls have the ability 'veto' a proposed bill. This forces the bill into a re-vote in which 4/5 (401/500) of the senate must approve.

Current Events
Current Events #1
With so many seats taken by parties that call for a build up in the army as well as fighting against pirates, the Imum have recently stepped up their funding of pirating ships, and have issued threats to the Yukan Republic, calling for the removal of these aggresive parties. These threats are mainly directed at the liberals themselves, pushing them to keep control in the Senate with their Consul positions...

The Yukan Militaristic Trade League
"As you know, The Yukan Trade League is aiming at bringing trade back to the Yukan Republic, and defeating the Pirates who have threatened it. Without trade, where is the civilization? Currency is the lifeblood of Civilization. For this purpose, taxes on trade, imports and exports will be lowered greatly, and the Pirates will be targeted by the military. Grants shall be given to those who seek to set up business to make it easier for them. Money for the Governement shall instead be charged through heavy fines for breaking the law. Those who can not pay the fine are conscripted into the army,which shall be employed as a policing force and as pirate hunters. Harsh laws and punishments are promised to the people of the Republic, to deal with the criminals and anarchists. The YTML works tirelessley to ensure control of the chaotic world, in order to bring more money, industry and business into the Yukan Republic. The more industry, the more jobs, the more goods, the more money for all.

The YMTL: Control, Currency, Compotence."

The YTML was founded my Vukul Tumum, who is the current Leader. It is a right-wing party that advocates harsh laws and the creation of a Police State, and promises to bring security and safety to the Republic through force. It's other major aim is to encourage business and industry in order to bring money to all, through an ecnomic boom. They believe this boom can only be achievved with help from the Governement. They are against war with the Imum, but for attacking the Pirates and the Omom for self defence. They believe money must be kept in the hands of a select rich, who can invest it and make it grow, rather than divided among the lower classes who shall never spend it.

Vukul was born to a Merchant Mother and a Soldier Father. He is modertaley rich and is well known for being a firery and passionate man, although he has a tendency to overreact.

I don't know. If anything i'd like to leave it a mystery...

Nice party Balth. Anyway here are the statisitics i promised...

Class Populations
Upper: 3%
Upper-Middle: 17%
Middle: 33%
Middle-Lower: 26%
Lower: 21%

Alpha Systems: 14
Delta Systems: 23
Omega Systems: 8

After the war with Imum, most of the Omega Systems were taken, as well as some of the newer Delta Systems. An economic crisis ensued because of the lack of incoming resources. The stock market took a large hit, decreasing the wealth of the Upper class tremendously. Only those that got out in time were able to 'survive'.
As if to increase the hurt, the Senate drew funds from the rich, spreading it out to the Middle Class in an attempt to increase the production of the Yukan Republic. Thus the lower classes expanded in size to their current levels and the upper class shrunk to its size.

Current Political Parties
Conservative Party- This party was the one that ruled during the time of the Yukan-Imum war. Because of the loss, this party lost many of its representatives, and that of its power. Their power was even more weakened by the diminishing numbers of the Upper class.

Liberal Party- This is the party currently in power. Their inaction and their tendency to give in to the many Imum demands have weakened their overall status in the political arena. Their lack of power is the reason why so many other parties could easily take control.

Current Senate Seats
395 seats belong to the Liberal Party
82 seats belong to the Conservative Party
23 seats belong to various poltical parties

The Yukan Nationalist Union
We shall go forth as one.

"The YNU strives for a unified nation, in which everyone is equal, and part of a whole. We will to defeat the Imum, and destroy their people, as a unified race. No Yukan is any better or worse than another Yukan, but a Yukan is far superior to every other race in the Universe! Wealth will be shared, as the poor need money, while the rich waste it on luxuries! The people are what this nation relies on, and it is people like you that are needed to embetter us as a whole. Rebuild our economy, join our military, embetter the state and we will be unstoppable and great, and our people shall revel in their own glory! We can not tolerate law-breakers, as they will corrupt our nation. Enemies will not have a chance to strike us, as we will strike them first. No-one will grow hungry, and no-one will watch while others starve. My fellow Yukans, I will lead us to a new golden age!"

The founder and leader of the YNU is Unak Ekal. The YNU is very left wing, and it wishes to bring unity to the people, so that they can act as one being to make the state more powerful. It believes that a few must be sacrificed for many, and many must be sacrificed for the state. They want to defeat their enemies, destroy the pirates, and become a galactic superpower, for the embetterment of all. They believe that with expansion and growth comes a better economy, and so that is a lesser priority. They believe no-one should ever have more money then they can handle, and therefore, they share everyones wealth to make them equal. They concentrate mainly on the Alpha Systems, as they beleive industry and people are the keys to success.

The People's 'audeti Union

"From the moment our race first touched the skies, obsession with progress and expansion has gripped the aristocracy in power. The only thing the blue-bloods in the Senate cared for was the latest technological marvel to install into their palatial estate-stations! Blind confidence in laissez-faire economics and society... Arrogance! Indeed, arrogance has led us to these dark days. When Yukans support a system of governance that accepts the oppression and destitution of 47% (Almost half!) of our civilization's population, then you know that we are truly unworthy of the favor of 'audet!

And now that we are in these times of strife, what does the new 'liberal' government promise? Nothing! Our poor must pay outrageously high taxes to support the bloated Bureaucracy… A government that does not give back to the people, but expands that corruption through political patronage and nepotism! All the while they give in to every minor demand of the Imum barbarians!

Perhaps you look at me and see a country bumpkin, filled with naïve idealism, and promoting an ancient and irrelevant faith in ‘audet. But, have we not seen what the last 300 years of rule by cosmopolitan aristocrats has given our Republic? Destruction, destitution, and demoralization! To strengthen our Republic, we must first strengthen its people. Social justice must be ensured, government corruption must be minimized. The outsiders and pirates must either be absorbed into our political system or obliterated; they cannot exist as they do now—a festering tumor on the side of our sickly society.

P’AU: Help Us To Bring Back Eden".

The P'AU is the result of the combination of various 'audeti (a minor Yukan religion) parties. The current leader is  Celo Uyata, a young and charismatic man from an outer rim Delta World. They support re-distribution of wealth and social justice for every Yukan, and they hope to one day re-create the mythical paradise in reality by strengthening the Republic and transfiguring it into a benevolent, and limited government. While they want to eliminate the Pirates, Omum, and Imum they are not particularly imperialist-- They would rather see the 'perfection' of the current Yukan Republic, then see its imperfect institutions spread even further across the galaxy (to the detriment of all). They derive most of their political power from poor farmers on Delta Worlds, and Miners of the Omegas, both groups feel intensely disenfranchised by the current regime. While they support industry and technological innovation, they feel that the government must not lose sight of who it is supposed to serve: The People.

I hope I can still join, Here I go:

The Yukan Scientific League:

We are at a turning point, these are days of crisis. Our race is much more in danger than it ever was. You might ask yourself whom do we turn to in these dark days and I have the answer: “Technology”. Since the cold dark nights many thousands years ago when our race was only in the cradle of civilization and a lightning bolt burst the near tree into flames we understood the importance of science in helping us in all the aspects of lives. Since the first Yukan ate the fruits that he or she himself grew we understood the importance of technology. Since the first Yukan scout stood on the highest hill and watched his enemies approaching we understood the power of knowledge.

Now you ask me, how can science help us now? Like the days of great famine when a genius Yukan invented the solution of crop circles and saved millions, like when the horrible plague of “Kanara” killed 20% of our population it only took the work of one man to find the cure and save the rest of us. Once more the work of brilliant scientists, the type that brought us to the stars and beyond, are needed, and the republic will once again be at peace.

There are three critical words when it comes to the solution of our republic’s great problem: “Technology, Science and Education”. With them no pirate would ever attack our vessels again, and especially no barbaric Imum would ever dare to meet us in battle.

This party was recently created by its current leader “Professor Jathonium Maldro”. It leans to the left though is mainly considered as a middle party that doesn’t believe in conquer but sees it as a possible solution if logical. They will mainly address to educated people, mostly the middle and upper middle class, though also the lower masses might seek refuge here from the raging politics with the promises of better life conditions that come along with science. Their main goal is to return order by increasing education to create a better economy, adding specialists to govern many aspects of life (Technocrats) and increasing the amount of money spent on agricultural, warfare and general science.

Social-Liberal Party for the Yukan

We ask you, the people of the Republic: why do we let the lower classes dominate our lives! Is it not WE who have worked to where we are today? They strive to bring their poverty to an end, a very nice idealism, but at what cost? US?!

With us in your government, we can assure you that your lives will improve! Peace within our borders will be kept, thanks to excellent police. With the police to keep justice in our decadent Republic, we will become richer than ever before!

We seek coalition with the Scientific League, their political views fit our own.

Now, view our glorious leader: Manas Mordril!

Senate Election Results
Conservative Party- 73
Liberal Party- 87
Yukan Militaristic Trade League- 74
Yukan Nationalist Union- 74
People's 'audeti Union- 97
Yukan Scientific League- 32
Social-Liberal Party- 56
Other-7

The Conservative Party was able to keep most of its people in office because of the lack of party appeal in the Upper classes, as well as their promises to wage war on the Imum once again.
The Liberal Party took huge losses, but still remain the second largest party.
The Yukan Militaristic Trade League was able to make significant gains because of their promise of renewed economic growth, as well as their promises against the Imum. Their plan also promises a significant growth of the Yukan military.
The Yukan Nationalist Union was able to gain ground because of their appeal to the huge lower classes.
The People's 'audeti Union won the most votes because of their appeal to the lower classes as well as their promises to take out the Imum and the Omom.
The Yukan Scientific League didn't gain many seats because of their lack of so called 'action' by the people. While technology would be able to help the people, they would much rather prefer a stronger economy, or, most of all, revenge on the Imum.
The Social-Liberal Party for the Yukan was able to gain seats, but their lack of plans allowed the Conservative Party to steal most of their seats.
Other, several of the Omega planets elected smaller, unknown parties.

The leading party (People's 'audeti Union) is able to propose a bill which can be voted upon by the entire senate (each leader decides which way their party votes). The passing of the bill will bring greater power to the party which proposed it. But, depending on which 'class' you represent, voting against it could weaken your own power.

Seconded!


"The YMTL would like to thank all those who voted for us in the last election. Soon we shall begin to put into play our proposals, perhaps the next election. We are very confident about the future.

Our first initiative is the Global Reduction of Taxes, in order to finance business and industry. This should make it much easier for people to set up businesses and buy consumer goods, thus giving up a healthier economy and putting us on the road to prosperity....not just for the rich, but for all: a richer corporation can pay higher wages, higher wages mean more spending, meaning richer corporations...As soon as you vote us into power, Prosperity will follow! As soon as you vote YMTL, The probelsm will be over! As Soon as you vite YMTL, Riches and Security will follow!

And of course, our second target: Military Dominance. We shall set up an Arms Industry straight away, controlled by the State. This shall give a boost to the economy, as long as supplying jobs, and spin-off industries. Then, when our armies are strong, we shall attack the Pirates. We shall bring them down and enslave them.

Our Third Target: Crime. With increased power given over to the Police, we shall be able to easily combat the criminals. Those among you who fear for your safety are wrong; those loyal to the Republic have nothing to fear. Increased Police Powers will eventually be done away with when the recent outbursts of gang violence and attacks on innocents have been dealt with. We also have a selection of new punishments: on the spot-fines, which should help the Government cope with lower taxes. Those who fail to pay the fines will be conscripted into the army or taken to Labour Camps to work off thier debt. This means every action done benefits our economy in some way.

The YMTL: Protection, Prosperity, Power."

"The YNU would like to thank all that voted for them. You are making the state move towards a superpower, in a galaxy where Yukan and only Yukan exist, and everyone is equal. You have the potential to become great, but you have not yet had the means. We are the means! We will bring the Imum and Omom under our control, and enslave them until they are all dead and have made the state even stronger! Then their blood debt to us will be repaid! We will also destroy the pirates, and make sure they never threaten our trade and transport again!

I know what you all think. The rich have too much power and too much wealth. You are all struggling to survive with the measly amount of money you earn for your hard labour, while those rich scumbags lie around in their mansion doing absoloutely nothing, and raking in more money then you do in a lifetime! Well I agree with you! I promise that if my party gets into power, the wealth will be taken from the rich and shared amongst everyone else! I promise our economy will prosper, and there will be even more wealth to share!

The military is weak. It has too few soldiers in it. We Yukan are powerful warriors, but we need numbers! I will bring you numbers! I will make sure anyone who joins the military for 5 years or more will get many bonuses that other Yukan do not get! That, my friends, should be enough incentive to help in the war against the enemies that surround us! The Yukan that join the military have agreed to give their life for the state if needed, and so they should be treated well before the time may come!

Our military shall take over the jobs of the police, as we do not need two organisations that can become one in a flash. Almost all crimes will be punishible by death, which will help deter any law breakers from practising their vulgar art, and it will also get rid of any troublesome members of the community that can weaken the state.

Our industry is weak. It is also only in the Alpha Systems. I will make our industry strong by making the industry owned by the state, meaning there will be no corruption and everything will be much more efficient. The industry will be second only to the people and the military! I will expand it, until we are completely self sufficient, and prepared for everything!

The YNU, working for the people, working for the State."

The Yukan Scientific League

Alas in these dark days it seems it is much easier to turn to aggressive ways of government, ones that claim instant results and a bloody payback or those that talk about the struggle, but these are all but words. Do you really want more blood shed? More wars, more chaos and neglecting, more people to blame for the wrongs of the war? No! We all had enough of this; this is our time to prosper. This is a democracy for goodness' sake! Don’t let those wishing to take the power from your hands rise as we all seen in the past the results…

Very few of the candidates really offered you something new, most of them wish to gain power just to have it, not to make a change. We offer you a new way to live your lives, a new god to worship, and a new savor, Science. Science will bring you food, science will make your lives easier, and science will increase the trade and help the economy grow! We know science isn't an instant solution, but in the long term it will help our nation return to its former glory.

We agree for allied relations with the “Social-Liberal Party for the Yukan” as they speak about important values and relate to the same classes our party mainly relates to. Also we think debate and agreement is important and is the only way to run a democratic republic.

But enough of just talking, you people want deeds, “actions”? I shall tell you what we will fight for in government and senate:

Adding Technocrats to all the life fields. No longer corrupted Yukans shall rule the rest, now the best and most fitting for every subject would be those in rule, or at list will advise those who need the information. This way we shall cut through the bureaucracy with an improved order.

The increase of education to all. The classes makes us divided, to be united we must all be educated and learn, that way there will be less lower classes and more middle class citizens and that way a single class would be the most common one and equality shall reign.

Support all forms of research. As mentioned before research is our only way for progress. New tools, new ways, new inventions, all shall put the Yukan race supreme. Many of you might disrespect this and think that in dark times research is a waist of resources, but believe me the next time a crucial inventions would be invented and your lives would be so much better you will know who to turn your thanks to. Think about life without entrainment holograms, without hyperspace, without advanced recycling, these are the things that makes us better than the savages Imum.

Sick of all the competition, of all those 80 votes parties fighting against each other? Then in the future vote with a united voice for the league of science.

"I would like to thank the Yukan people for their support! 56 seats, not nothing! Finally we have a say in things! Our coalition with the Scientific League is sure to bear its fruit.

You can join, but what creature were you thinking of running?

A vote have been submitted by the YMTL (i just thought that everyone should be able to submit votes, but try to keep them one at a time...). Here it is:
Reduction of Taxes
Senator of the YMTL party proposes that the taxes be lowered from their current 17% (How much to you want to lower it Balth?).

In the event of a proposal, each creator chooses which way their party votes. Remember, each party is pretty much a totalitarian system. Pretty much all votes will go one way, because if they didn't, some sort of accident might occur to the Senators that didn't vote accordingly...

3/5 (301/500) votes are needed for the passing of a bill. And here's another little thing i'm adding.

There are two Consul positions in the Yukan Senate which act as a figurehead. Their elections are at seperate times as the Senate itself. The two highest parties elect one of their own to the seat of Consul. If that party has over 300 seats, then they are able to choose both of the Consuls. There has not been an election of the Consuls yet, so the Liberals still have both Consul positions.

Consuls have the ability 'veto' a proposed bill. This forces the bill into a re-vote in which 4/5 (401/500) of the senate must approve.

Current Events
With so many seats taken by parties that call for a build up in the army as well as fighting against pirates, the Imum have recently stepped up their funding of pirating ships, and have issued threats to the Yukan Republic, calling for the removal of these aggresive parties. These threats are mainly directed at the liberals themselves, pushing them to keep control in the Senate with their Consul positions...

The People's 'audeti Union

"Praise be to 'audet! Truly this election has shown that He continues to bless and watch over our people. Yukans, we thank you for your faith in the P'AU. We will live up to our promises, and restore the republic to ancient glory! Even now I have instructed my troops to step up law enforcement and social services on the Outer Rim Worlds... not until the least of us can sleep upon full stomaches without fear for their lives can I rest in this endevor.

I would also like to take this opportunity to chastise the YSL, and all who supported them in this election. In his post-election speech, Professor Maldro said: "We offer you a new way to live your lives, a new god to worship, and a new sav(i)or, Science.". Besides being a horrible blaspheme against 'audet (or, perhaps one of the greater gods of our Republic), it is simply idiocy. Their blind faith in technology as a cure for our society's ills is what has caused it to degenerate to its current position  in the first place! A smaller computer chip will not solve hunger in the Outer Rim, a faster transpod won't give an orphan girl a foster parent. Concerted social improvement on the part of the government, and individual Yukans will save the Republic, and improve it.

And now to the future! We have three main goals during this term of the Senate:

1) Increased Aid To The Poor: The poor need our support! I know that the corporate bigwigs continue to push the Doctrine of Societal Evolution, but that is simply hogwash! A poor Yukan is no different from a rich one, save perhaps that he was not born in as fortutious a location or time. As I child, I lived among many poor turbega farmers- They were kind, and certainly very clever. But their lack of formal education and limited literacy allowed them to be swindled by their landlords and by their merchants. We must allocate more money to provide education programs for the poor, as well as simple financial aid, to help them pull themselves out of debt and into financial independance!

2) Cut Corruption In Government: There is too much political patronage and nepotism in our government. Complete idiots are installed into the highest positions of our government because they 'know someone' or bribed their way into that position. This has to stop! To do so, I propose before the senate the Civil Service Bill which would mandate the gradual phasing out of patronage positions, and the institution of government exams for anyone who wished to be employed in the Federal Government.

3) Eliminating The Foreigners: The Omum, Imum, and Pirates are all a threat to our stability. The Imum are (at least somewhat) civilized. I have sent diplomats to them to attempt to lower hostilities, and begin some sort of amicable trade relation. If the Imum accept, then they are likely to want to protect trade carvans from pirates as much as we do (which cuts our own piracy prevention in half!). The Omum... the Omum will be dealt with in good time.

One thing further: I would support the YMTL's bill if it were ammended. I understand that business interests much be allowed some breathing room to recuperate and fuel our economy, but 5% is simply too low! I propose a 7% tax on business. And a decreasing scale of 20-2% taxation, more taxation for those with higher income, lower taxation for those with less.

As mentioned before the YSC are against the "Reduction of Taxes Bill".

The YSC is for the "Civil Service Bill"! Clearly a very good idea and a very important law. I am sure all of the YSC party members would excel in those tests.

"The Yukan Militaristic Trade League would like to accept the proposal of the People's 'audeti Union. We would like to show our heartfelt support for the Civil Service Bill.

We would also like to express disdain at those who voted against the lowering of commercial taxes. Surely, you see that if is your party's reponsilbility to ensure the growth of business? Surely, you realise that a if business booms, the lower taxes will yield as much revenue as the higher would, without the boom? Then, surely, you would vote for the Law?

We are staying true to the Traditions of the old, yet bringing about the dawn of a new era. Past glories must be forgotten in favour of new glories: tired concepts of giving aid directly to the poor rather than allowing a healthy economy to grow are not welcome here.

First let's keep it at one bill per tax thingy. Remind me about this new bill after the Reduction Bill is decided, although i am counting your votes against it.

News Flash!
The Civil Service Bill has just been approved in the Senate after the YSC threw their 32 votes behind the bill. After several hours of debate, though, the two Liberal Consuls have vetoed the bill on the basis that "It would give to much power to the P'aU." While this seems like a legitimate excuse, some have to wonder whether the recent Imum threats had anything to do with this...

The Consul has vetoed the Civil Sevice Bill. It has automatically been re-enacted, needing 401 votes instead of the regular 301. Please Revote on this matter, and remember the Reduction of Taxes is still in the voting process.

"See this, fellow Yuka! Those puppets of corruption, the Liberal-Party consuls, have vetoed the Civil Service Bill. They claim the bill is merely a ploy to obtain more power for the P'aU. That of course, is nonsense. Their real reason for attacking this legislation is because it threatens the continued existance of their patronage system! We of the P'aU will once again put our support behind this bill, and encourage all the other parties who (unlike the Liberals) care for the creation of a new and stronger Republic for the benefit of all Yuka, to support it as well."

I think the only non-Yukan that would make any sense would be the Imum ambassador.

Questions:
1.  Can we have some more details on the Imum and what started the war?
2.  Are the Pirates Yukan or different groups of unnamed minor species?
3.  Is there currently a standing unified military or is it regional/political militias or no "official forces" at all (like Germany after WW I)?
4.  @ Caltrop what are the basic tenets and beliefs of the 'audeti?
5.  I've thought of a few weird groups and one I'd like to play.  Can I post them all and josasa treat the extras like NPCs?
Some are religious in nature so instead of political they could be background flavor.  Religion/philosophy could become another demographic in the elections.

We also once again support the Civil Serbice Bill....We would like to point that we currently think very negativley of the Liberal Party.

The Liberals have done nothing! In this time of need, they have done Nothing! We shall tolerate these Imum puppets no longer!  They sell us our to our foes, abuse thier power and protect thier corrupt. We promise action! Corruption is damaging to all aspects of Business and the Military: the cornerstones of the YMTL. It is, of course, damaging to all but the guilty. Soon, we shall give you what you deserve: Action! We will work against the problems in the Republic, by organising a boom in business and strict Governemental Control of life, in order to crack down on Corruption and crime: Is it not clear that this is what is nessecary to save The Republic? We stand at a crossroads: We can obey weak Governments like the Liberal Party and live out our days as slaves and vassals of the Imum, forever in thier shadow, or we can rise up! We can build up our economy, make us rich! Our Army shall swell and no Pirate, no barbarian will ever approach a Yukan ship again! Rise up, For the Republic!"

The High Court has spoken before in the Glod v.s. Hiyun Case. The rules on the Consul will stay the same, only the two most powerful parties will be able to choose the position of Consuls.
There can be an Emergency Consul Election with 401/500 Senators approving. But if this Emergency Consul Election is approved, only the Consevative Party and the P'aU will be able to choose their Consuls.

An Emergency Consul Election has been proposed by the S-L Party. If approved the current Consuls will be ejected and new ones will be filled by the largest parties in the Senate.

2. The Pirates are a mix of everything...
3. There is a smaller Unified Military, greatly reduced since the war. It can only really keep the peace on the Alpha Worlds.
4. That's for Caltrop...

EDIT: "Oh, and we do support the ammended Reduction of Taxes Bill."

OOC:
4.  @ Caltrop what are the basic tenets and beliefs of the 'audeti?

Well, as a lot of backround hasn't been created by Josasa, I apologise if any of my ideas conflict with his original envisionment. I percieve Yukan religion to be similar to that of ancient Rome; an official state pantheon (Jupiter, Apollo, etc.) along with less significant regional dieties (Isis, Cybele, etc.). This 500-year-old religion was founded on a Delta World by a local aristocrat, after having a vision. Believing that 'audet (a previously unheard-of god) commanded him to follow Him, the aristocrat began becoming a major supporter of the poor. Towards the end of his life he gave up most of his material goods and lived as a farmer-philosopher.

The 'audeti Religion is primarily one of social justice. They believe that 'audet works through the actions of mortals to recreate an ancient mythical paradise. 'audeti believe that, through the grace of 'audet, they are re-incarnated to continue their earthly work until paradise is achieved, at which point they will live forever (either as spirits or with bodies, there is some debate on the issue). For these reasons, it is obviously very popular among the poor, who live short and brutish lives. Non-'audeti simply cease to exist. For the most part, they are stauchly moralistic, believing in values some humans today might consider 'old fashioned'. As a real-world parallel, think of Catholicism.

In the last few hundred years, it has expanded to most of the Outer Rim worlds, and just before the rise of the P'aU, the Supreme Curia elevated 'audet to the State Pantheon, Third Tier. There are three tiers to the State Pantheon, and although Third Tier is the lowest, merely being a member in the Pantheon ensues that the state will fund and support the worship of that diety, and will install worship facilities for that god in the First Temple in the capital city.

That's all I have for now, but no doubt I will come up with more backround for them as time goes by.

No, if you would have read the first post you would have seen this has no connection to the other RP worlds.

Just a reminder, the Tax Reduction Bill still needs to be voted upon, the Civil Service Bill needs to be revoted upon, and the Emergency Consul Election still needs to be voted upon if you haven't already. All of these bills can be viewed on the first page in the first post under the Bills (Active) Section.

And now, some more history on the Yukan Republic:
The Yukan race took their first steps into space 7,000 years after they first settled down into cities. It took a few hundred more years until they were able to colonize other systems, but they were soon on their way to becoming a small galactic power.
Exactly 32 years after finishing in colonizing their last Omega system, the Yukan people met those of the Imum. They were an older race, although they were surprisingly small compared to the time they had been exploring space. Their philosophy was to expand slowly, but have a large military at hand.
The first contact resulted in peaceful relations for several decades. It was after the discovery that the Yukan had been funding the Omom's attacks into Imum territory that relations went sour.
The Consuls of the Senate at the time had thought that weakening the Imum would allow the Yukan people's to expand further, increasing their power overall while keeping their public opinion high. After the Imum found out, word quickly spread throughout the Yukan Republic and the Consuls were removed. But the relations stayed sour until war was finally declared by the Yukan.
The war started off good for the Yukan; they were able to conquer several worlds before the full force of the Imum stopped them. A huge stalemate occured for the better half of a year until a large push was made by the Imum. They broke through and were able to penetrate into the Delta worlds while ravaging the Omega worlds.
Peace was declared after several more months of fighting. The terms were harsh for the Yukan people:
1. Twelve(12) Omega worlds and two(2) Delta worlds would be taken from the Yukan and given to the Imum, the Omega worlds for their own profit while the two(2) Delta worlds would form a buffer zone.
2. Imum forces would be placed on Yuka (the Yukan homeworld) to watch over the government.
3. The Yukan military would be downsized to only one carrier group while the ground forces would be one thousand (1,000) Yukans per planet.
4. Payments would be sent to the Imum until the damages were covered (which would be determined by the Imum government).
5. Relations between the Yukan and the Omom would be suspended until further notice.

"We would like to put forward our amendments to the Republic's Laws and Law Enforcement Guidelines.

  • Instead of Prison Sentences, those arrested of a crime must pay a fine, if their crime was theft, fraud, assault, or anything other than treason, murder or bad assault. This shall not only punish the inidividual, but make the State Richer- money with which we shall help you. These fines are designed to be crippling: sufferers must take out loans and the like to pay them off. This helps fund our banks and dissuade people from criminal activity.
  • It is, of course likely, that Criminals will not be able to pay these crimes. In this case, they shall be taken to labour camps where they shall work, earning a wage that will pay off thier debt. Food and the like that they eat will be taken out of thier 'wages'. Criminals could remain in these camps for years at a time. Whilst in a camp, they will also be taught skills to enable them to get a higher-quality occupation when they get out, dissuading them from further crime and bulking up our workforce.
  • We advocate the use of force to stop Criminals, Pirates, and Enemies of the State. We would allow our brave officers in the street the ability to use extreme force when people resist arrest. If Yukans attempt to escape custody our officers whould be able to execute them on the spot.

Everybody please vote on the bills not decided yet (on the first page, in the first post). Once those are completed we can move on to other elections.

Will the Conservative Party be voting? Also, I've noticed that after a veto a decision must nearly always be unanimous.

Perhaps a 'Decay' period shoudl be out into place. If a party does not vote for Bills without saying they abstain, the people will think they aren't doing anythign and they will lose seats in the next election.

The Conservative Party votes in favor (Aye! 73) of all three bills currently being decided upon.

:In the same breath:

The Liberal Party votes against all current bills (Nay! 87), excluded the civil service bill from which they obstain.

The Liberal voting has knocked the Reduction of Taxes bill out of question.

Manas Mordril was fed up with the Liberal Party. His spies had discovered a secret passage into the Liberal leader's ancient villa. This would prove useful in the plan.

In the Senate, a Social-Liberal senator was proposing a new plan; "People, hear me! It is time for us to colonize the Gamma system! We have attempted to establish a settlement there before, 67 years ago. Today, our science has furthered and it is time to try again! Expeditions to catalogue the wildlife on these planets will prove useful in our understanding of how life works. We expect the Scientific League will give us full backing. The funding has already been taken care of, but due to current law, all space expeditions must be approved."

OOC: Someone needs to control the 'Other" party/ies, or else a veto will make it fail regardless.

"The P'aU agrees that colonizing a new system would be highly beneficial to our Republic. We support this motion, but with this caveat:

65% of the new habitable land of this system should be distributed free-of-charge to the worthy poor of the Delta and Gamma Worlds. Many have been farmers or miners their whole lives, so they know how to work the land without industrial amenities. Not only would this provide a solid base for later settlement by the 'upper classes', but it would also give those farmers and miners an opportunity to rise out of poverty.

Further, we ask that the 'Gamma System' be re-named... as it is confusing with the 'gamma system' classification of our mining worlds."

"Yes, the Lower Classes may use this as an opportunity to rise rom poverty, rather than begging for money from respectable citizens. Since it was our party that made the motion, we propose the system be named the Mordril system, after our party-leader."
