USSR Infinity

I have an idea for a scenario, maybe we can replace states with men from the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union and make Far Left Hardcore Communism and Far Right Moderate Socialism (could be vice versa) the map could be the list of people in the Supreme Soviet

could work for PMI too

I'm already planning on the docket election scenarios for the 1989 USSR and 1990 for each of the 15 Union Republics Supreme Soviet elections by CI, which were the last (and only contested, multi-party, anywhere near free-and-fair elections in the whole of Soviet history).

The problem here is any other election would have one candidate per constituency, who'd be selected by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. There were no legal opponents on the ballot. You either voted for the candidate on the ballot (the vast majority did) or you crossed them off, but because voting wasn't at all secret, you suffered grave consequences for that.

Also, the selection of a new Soviet leader was not a simple, straightforward vote of the Supreme Soviet and that was that. It was a very convoluted, involved, complex, and Machiavellian process that involved pulling of many political favours and contacts, wheeling and dealing, backroom agreements, backstabbing, and people getting sent to Siberia, and there was absolutely NO transparency or public discourse on the issue - only the final winner at the end was publicly announced.

We could simulate it in events or "campaigning" and I meant stuff like the Central Committee of 1955 where Krushchev rose to power

Also the map could be the bigwigs of the USSR at the time such as ministers organizations and such

The Central Committee of 1955 was one of the  events I was referring to with the last paragraph of my last post. Also, factions and camps in the CPSU are a bit fuzzy, ill-defined, and subject to easily switching across line by prominent member, even much more so than modern camps of the U.S. Democratic and Republican Parties. There was a board game in the late '80's called Politburo, I think, or something of that sort, that dealt specifically with Soviet party politics and rising and falling in the ranks (there was even a space on the board for those banished to Siberia - in case they just happened to get rehabilitated and brought back by allies' changes in fortune), but it was not at all based on an election simulator in any sense of the word.
