Recommended Posts

New scenarios I'm working on:

Ecotopia Municipal Election 2006: Set in the United States' West Region, Ecotopia is a diverse city with influences from the West Coast and the Southwest. Though historically a Democratic City, the arrival of a new Progressive Party threatens to shake things up. Who will win? Parties are Democratic, Republican, Progressive, and Libertarian. For Prime Minister Forever Canada.

French Presidential Election 2007: Original President Forever and President Forever + Primaries version.

Ocia Votes 2008: Set in a fictional micronation with a fragmented, multiethnic society and with connections to my previous Alexandria scenario. In this election, Ocian voters must choose who will led them through troubled times and whether or not to accept a partnership with an old enemy. Parties are Federalists (conservative), Liberal Democracy (liberals), Green Party (greens) and Conservative Party (populist). Prime Minister Forever UK.

Stormark General Election 2008: Set in a fictional micronation with a strong Viking and Scandanavian cultures with connections to Alexandria. In this election, an aging empire must choose its future course: between national greatness or in pursuit of social equity and a justice society? Parties are Folkpartiet, Social Democrats, Venstre, Green Party, Fremskrittspartiet, Center Party. For Chancellor Forever.

More to be forthcoming.
