Tokundi 2007

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I aim to get some work done on my revamping of Edward Gaffney's Tokundi scenario. I could use help with candidate names, since I'm not an expert on Chinese names. Though I could add in other groups if you'd like such as Filipino, Thai, Malay, Indonesian, and Korean. I'm thinking there will be a sizeable mixed population, and with a lot of candidates having English, Portuguese, or Spanish first or last names due to the influence of those civilisations on the country.

Here is what I have so far:

PARTIES:

Iron Mountain (ruling Conservatives)

Socialist Labor (Communist & Socialist opposition)

Liberal-Progressive (Liberal coalition partner)

Homeland (right-wing nationalist opposition)

Democratic Solidarity (far-left protest party)

Issues

Agriculture

Do any of you guys want me to combine this with Ayati (some candidates and possibly a party)?

Does Tokundi fit an oriental country or do you want somethign different?

No. I think Ayati and Tokundi should be different. As you have said, Ayati is essential done with the exception of constituencies. I bet if a couple of us did maybe 15 to 20 constituencies, Ayati would finally be done.

I fully agree with Matty. Ayati should be disitnct.

I think I will add in Islamic Minority as an issue instead of Religion.

//Islamic Minority

We should embrace Sharia and other Islamic laws into our society.

Muslims deserve equal rights, civil liberties, and freedom of worship.

Muslims must integrate into our society and reject terrorism.

Crack down Islamofascist terorism and subversive activity.

Muslims are a threat to our homeland and should be expelled.

Okay do you want the two rival coalitions to be: Iron Mountain-LPP vs SLP-Homeland?

Or do you want the Homeland party to be separate, and thus the SLP being stronger on its own?

I'd prefer Homeland on it's own.

PROVINCES (SEATS):

Hollandia (6) - Muslim Majority, Rural

Batavia (10) - Muslim Majority, Urban

Sulu (8) - Muslim Majority, Rural

Flores (7) - Christian Majority, Urban

San Pedro (14) - Christian Majority, Urban

Nueva Castilla (11) - Christian Majority, Rural

Rodrigues (12) - Christian Majority, Rural

Whampoa (18) - Buddhist Majority, Rural

Guandong (16) - Taoist Majority, Rural

Yeongnam (15) -Taoist Majority, Urban

Zhou (18) - Buddhist Majority, Rural

Hokkien (17) - Buddhist Majority, Rural

Keelung (20)- Buddhist Plurality, Urban

Victoria (28) - No Religious Majority, Urban

Raffles (24) - No Religious Majority, Urban

So which regions should be strongest for each party?

I'm thinking the starting seats (out of 224) will be:

IRON MOUNTAIN 77 Seats

SOCIALIST LABOR 110 Seats

LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE 15 Seats

HOMELAND 20 Seats

DEMOCRATIC SOLIDARITY 2 Seats

Unless you guys think there should be more seats...

200 seats is fair enough.

SOCIALIST LABOR should dominate Buddhist rural regions, and lead in the Buddhist plurality.

HOMELAND would capture all their seats in urban regions, in muslim and no religious majority.

IRON MOUNTAIN would be strong in Muslim regions rural, more to an extent but urban too.

LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE to have seats in the Taoist, Christian majority and no religious majority.

DEMOCRATIC SOLIDARITY should be srongest in the both the 2 large urban regions, and have 1 seat in either one. The 2 largest regions should be the more diverse but with Labor leading.

The Christian regions could be bellweather regions which could be tight but favouring Labor.

First off, GOP Progressive, your seats don't add up! 214 in total according to your first list...

If Iron Mountain is going to be an establishment conservative party, it should be strong among the majority demographic groups, i.e. Chinese and Buddhists/Taoists, as well as in rural areas generally.

Socialist Labor should have support spread broadly across urban and rural areas. Judging by the backstory, it seems like Socialist Labor would also have a lot of Muslim support.

Liberal Progressive should be almost solely urban, and it should enjoy the most appeal among Christians and those of no religion. It should also be the party of the wealthy urban citizens, first and foremost.

Homeland would essentially have the same demographics as the core of the Iron Mountain party. If it's right-wing and nationalist, it's not going to be very welcoming to non-majority citizens, so I imagine that would limit support to Buddhist and Taoist areas.

Democratic Solidarity, as you say, would be a Muslim party, strongest in cities where it can fuse its base with immigrants.
