This will likely be updated today... Most of my time has been spent running my party's election for the past few days on another game.

Ok. Take your time. I am glad that we have such cool RPs here.

The Status of Gott-Stein (1454)

7th Sconlair: Unnamed Head Councilman (Sconlair can't break constitution by appointing successors)

Popularity: 69%; Worchester remains popular, yet he resigned early so his popularity for his decisions could not be fully assessed.

Cities: Scottsville (1,928)

Rural Dwellers: 19

Island Exploration: 23.6% (+7.9%)

Population: 1,947 (335+125) people. The tradition of rural settling has begun for good.

-Additional Notes: Current immigration policies include land, housing, and later more land.

Economy: Depression; The status of the economy is relatively the same, which for the first time has made people angry. Profitt's shipbuilding initiative this decade has produced ten ships, which replaced all ships damaged by the storm. Worchester's reaction to the storm may have saved the people, but it has curved economic growth.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Electoral Makeup

Electoral System: Council; Thirteen Members are apart of this council, with elections every 5 years. (The electoral makeup in this post will represent after midterm elections.)

-----------------------------------------

Population Values

Independent: 54%

Traditional: 10%

Growth: 17%

Conservative: 19%

No Change

-----------------------------------------

Council (1449-1454)

Independent: 7 One lost seat to become Sconlair, but was replaced by an Independent.

Growth: 2 Kept both seats. (Richard Brown and David Polk)

Traditional: 3 One seat lost to the Independents, but one seat gained from the Conservatives. (Joseph Whittle, and one random guy.)

Conservative: 1 One lost re-election, the seat lost to the Traditional Party (Morgan Daniels)

Little change.

Election of June 1454 AD

@WVProgressive @Conservative Elector 2 @Illinois Moderate@CalebsParadox@FrancisXKennedy

It is time to state candidacies. The country is stable, and the current Sconlair is not running again.

 

Who will challenge a vacant seat?

 

Note: Election results will happen 48 hours after this post, or when all people interested in running post their candidate and campaign. If anyone wants to join, you may join as well.

 

Additional note: The RNG factor was meaningless, as the Sconlair resigned before most rolls could be done.

Election of June 1454 AD Results

 

Martin O'Neill / Gordon McIntosh (Conservative): 47%

Oswald Witte / George Whitfield (Growth): 53%

 

By receiving a plurality, Oswald Witte becomes Sconlair!

 

Note: This was rather surprising; O'Neill won a slim majority from independents and traditionalists, but for some odd reason enough conservatives defected to the opponent.

---------------------------------------------------------

Decisions for the 8th Sconlair, Oswald Witte@FrancisXKennedy

 

Decision 1#: Your party's platform brought forth a bunch of new ideas to the country. With such radical ideas, how do you plan to make sure the change in the country isn't too rapid?

Decision 2#: Your platform consisted of many public works-type ideals. Which ones are you going to implement first, and how will you support it with the way the country is set up?

Decision 3#: The economy has been stagnant for a long time, and finally the people are becoming unhappy. How will you address the stagnant economy?

Remember to add/change 3 of your own policies after making these decisions!

Special Event: N/A

---------------------------------------------------------

Electoral Makeup

Electoral System: Council; Thirteen Members are apart of this council, with elections every 5 years. (The electoral makeup in this post will represent after midterm elections.)

-----------------------------------------

Population Values

Independent: 53%

Traditional: 11%

Growth: 17%

Conservative: 19%

Minimal Change

-----------------------------------------

Council (1454-1459)

Independent: 8 One lost seat, but another regained it. Also gained another seat from the Traditional party.

Traditional: 1 Lost two seats, one to independents and the other to the Conservative Party. (One random guy)

Conservative: 2 Gained one seat from the Traditional Party (Morgan Daniels and Sidney Fitzgerald)

Traditional party took huge hits this election, RNG screwed them over just like they did the Conservatives in the Sconlair election.

I am quite pleased to have been elected, and I intend to do as much work for Gott-Stein as possible. I want to thank all of the great and hard scrabble citizens of our tough nation for giving Growth a chance and for allowing me the honor to serve.

 

 

D1. We will pursue our goals in a manner that prevents our people from being pushed too far. The projects will be staggered so as to ensure that manpower and resources can be allocated responsibly. This is elaborated upon in decision two.

 

D2. For the first five years we will be focusing on the establishment of the messenger service and the building of the smokehouse. Males above the age of thirteen, and below the age of seventeen will be hired as messengers for the town routes and older males will be hired to trek messages to the rural settlements and to captain the messenger squads.

 

We will hire all necessary males with building experience to become our public works construction brigade. They will be hired to complete the smokehouse and upon completion move to building an aqueduct should the appropriate fresh water source be located. I will task my son, Oscar with building a team and seeking out the proper water source, I will fund the expedition from my own coffers.

 

Along with these works, I would propose a separate ministry of sanitation that would be charged with keeping our waste out of the streets and away from the wells. The collected compostable waste should be made available for fertilizer by our farmers. 

 

Again, these projects should be staggered to avoid over exerting our populous. The first projects (smokehouse and messengers) will be for the first five years the second (aqueduct and sanitation) will be for the second.

 

D3.

In addition to providing jobs beyond just sustenance farming and hunter gathering, the above programs will boost the economy through increased employment. Our citizens will be in a better position to trade with one another. External trade will also be a major focus, I would like to send our Vice Sconlair to speak to our native trading partners and procure an agricultural expert and to open our markets so that we can trade any surpluses for goods we can’t produce on our own.

 

B14.

A bill to form the Gott-Stein Ministry of Public works and a permanent public works brigade to build the Smokehouse and Aqueduct as well as the Ministry of Sanitation.

 

B15.

A bill to form the Postal Ministry tasked with establishing the Gott-Stein messenger service.

 

B16.

A bill to establish the Gott-Stein Judiciary Court for the settlement of all disputes between individuals, as well as between individuals and the state.

The Status of Gott-Stein (1464)

8th Sconlair: Oswald Witte

1st Vice-Sconlair: George Whitfield

Popularity: 31%; The Public Works initiative was highly unpopular, and this pushed even further when Oscar and his expedition for water perished in the Jungle. The court was also poorly received, as was the idea of nationalized employment. The only things saving Witte's term was the postal service and the trade initiatives, as well as record setting growth rates. Although, the Great Depression has sank his approval ratings even farther.

Cities: Scottsville (2,518)

Rural Dwellers: 35

Island Exploration: 27.7% (+4.1%)

The map will be compiled around June 1st through 3rd when I get home. Still on vacation.

Population: 2,553 (455+151) people. The tradition of rural settling has begun for good.

-Additional Notes: Current immigration policies include land, housing, and later more land.

Economy: Great Depression; The economy has collapsed; there has simply not been enough Government funding to work on any of the Government initiatives, leading to universal failures of everything. The population calls to immediately repeal the public works program, as this program has unilaterally created an even worse depression, called a Great Depression. Any other actions to repeal Government spending will be awarded too.

Trade: Trade has finally been organized in the Government, although it is almost nonexistent due to the depression.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Electoral Makeup

Electoral System: Council; Thirteen Members are apart of this council, with elections every 5 years. (The electoral makeup in this post will represent after midterm elections.)

HOT NOTE! Soon, the population will grow big enough to do actual electoral borders! However, if they remain in the city this won't happen.

-----------------------------------------

Population Values

Independent: 57%

Traditional: 15%

Growth: 13%

Conservative: 15%

The Population rebels against any party that supported public works, which lowers the Growth and Conservative party numbers. As the Traditional Party opposed it, they grew in number.

-----------------------------------------

Council (1459-1464)

Independent: 9 Gained one seat from the Conservative Party.

Growth: 2 Kept both seats in amazingly close elections. (Richard Brown and David Polk)

Traditional: 2 Won a seat from the Conservative Party.

Conservative: 0 Lost both seats due to public works outroar.

The council elections reflected the people's opinion; although RNG saved the Growth Party and bottlenecked Traditional Growth, it destroyed the Conservative Party.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Election of June 1464 AD

@WVProgressive @Conservative Elector 2 @Illinois Moderate@CalebsParadox@FrancisXKennedy

It is time to state candidacies. The country is in a Great Depression, and the fact that both parties that ran in the last election supported the policy that led to the Depression give the population serious doubt in those two Parties. @CalebsParadox has a serious chance to contest, along with anyone else.

 

Note: Election results will happen 48 hours after this post, or when all people interested in running post their candidate and campaign. If anyone wants to join, you may join as well.

 

Additional note: The RNG factor kept stabbing continuously at Witte's term, even landing the country in a Great Depression (When a roll from 1-100 results in a 1, and some others resulted in 3 and 7, you know RNG didn't like the term and sent the country into shambles)

 

Also, when I get home from vacation, I will build more complex country standings.

Oswald Witte now deeply depressed by the loss of his only son, and saddened by the failures of his term declines to run again.

“I’ve always been wary old men who cling to power for its own sake, and that’s what I’d be if I tried to run again. I still believe in my ideas, but maybe it just wasn’t their time. All I ask is that the next leader doesn’t take the tasks at hand lightly. God bless Gott-Stein.”

Traditional Councilman Jack Colton Declares Candidacy for Sconclairship!

Cncl. Colton of the Traditional Party, currently the largest represented party in the legislative body of Gott-Stein, declared his intention to be the next Sconclair of Gott-Stein. He is running on the normal Traditional Platform of back to the basics economic management, and encouraging fur production, lumber production, and production of any materials that typically are sustained outside the cities borders. His Vice Sconclair will be Cncl. Arthur Burns.

Colton would see government spending dramatically decrease, with most all public works projects immediately halted if Traditional Party gains enough seats. Another large difference in the economic policy of Colton versus the current Sconclair is that he would focus on external trade, and all encouraged industries should have a positive impact on our exports as well as increase the settlement of the city outskirts.
