Fictional Scenario for a Fictional Country

Recommended Posts

I'm making a fictional Scenario for a fictional country that I used in a paper for my science fiction class. If anyone is interested in more information about this, please feel free to ask. I'm still working on the lore and all the details before the start of the scenario. I've already actually made a party list which is about 12 different political parties.

Which games are you using, what ethno-sphere is it roughly based on, for starters?

I'm using Prime Minister Infinity-Canada at the moment.

What do you mean by Ethno-Sphere? I don't want to give you a answer that isn't accurate. Do you mean the culture that I'm basing the fictional country on?

Like Anglo-Sphere (UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand), Anglo-Caribbean Sphere, Oceanian Sphere, Latin-American Sphere, European Union Sphere (can be subdivided), East Slavic Sphere (includes Serbia, Montenegro, and Macedonia), Turkic Sphere (Turkey, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, and former Soviet Central Asian Republics), Arab Sphere, South Asian Sphere, Communist East/Southeast Asian, Capitalist East/Southeast Asian Sphere, complicated and conflicting views of how to divided Sub-Saharan Africa, and standalones like Israel, Armenia, Georgia, Iran, and Switzerland. A thematic inspiration, moreso. Mostly in term of the type of the nation, people, and context to expect.

Ah I see! Thanks for the examples! The best one that would be closesst to the political institutions would be the Anglo-Sphere. I don't really have any certain Ethno-Sphere as it's influenced by all of the regions of the world as I've taken different institutions from various countries such as Britain, USA, Japan for example 

I would say that there is a Separatist movement in one of the regions. Along with various separatist parties in the region such as those found in  Northern Ireland.

The Communists are a slight influence in the political climate as they have influence in several regions.

Anarchist Communists. 

That might change later after I've written more backstory for the country. :)

I'll have a party list up soon.

Does it have a Federal or Unitary scheme of mandated division of powers between the national and first-tier administrative subdivision governments?

I would say that it is a Federal system. It is similar to the one seen in the United States. I hope that makes sense.

Here's the map of the country :)

Is it an island country, or one made up of inland exclaves surrounded by one or more other nations?

The Green Party, the Social Democrats and several independents are the ruling coalition.  The largest party in Parliament is the Social Democrats followed by the Conservatives. No party has a outright majority in Parliament or the Chamber of Councilors. The largest party in the Councilors is the Social Democrats followed by the Conservatives. The Communists have a small block in the Chamber of Councilors, which is similar to the United States Senate.

Including longer terms and staggered elections?

Shorter terms actually. It's about every 4 years for the Councilors and about 2 for Parliament but the Prime Minister may call a early election for both chambers if desired.

Unlike the US Senate all seats are up at a single election.
