  1. I did my own, goofy European Parliament election back in like 2007 or so. I'll see if I still have it. I also had a computer change as well, but I'm thinking I could get back into 80soft stuff after binging on civ 5, democracy 3, and tropico.
  2. I'm going to redo the 2004 and 2006 elections first, like I did with 2008 and 2011 (both of which turned out really well). Issues in 2004: Abortion Business Tax Corruption Debt Reduction Defense Environment Families Gun Registry Immigration Marijuana National Security Personal Tax Provincial Powers Public Health Care Quebec Same-Sex Marriage Trade US Relations Let me know what you think.
  3. Who are the other leaders? I recognize Trudeau, Mulcair, Harper, May, and Duceppe- but not anyone else.
  4. Which endorsers should I include this time around? Working on issue positions: EDIT: For some reason I cannot copy and paste issue positions from the files...weird.
  5. It is going to be a very low profile issue. I suppose Gender Equality could replace the Government issue ((which would be Stick with Harper (Tory) vs Change (Grit) vs a Centre-Left Coalition (NDP) or Left-wing Coalition government (Green, BQ)). What should be the highest profile issues (3 and 4), middle profile (2), and lowest profile (1)? Please note this would include Leadership, Integrity, Experience, and Issue Familiarity.
  6. @Issues Asylum and Immigration Budget and Debt Constitution Defence Devolution Economy Education Environment European Union Housing Law and Order Middle East NHS Northern Ireland Pensions Rural Affairs Tax Policy Welfare @end How are these? I'm not sure if Same-Sex Marriage was a bigger issue than Rural Affairs (which includes Hunting Bans), Pensions, or the Middle East (which would include Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Israel-Palestine, and ISIS). Referendum on staying in the EU- in there as European Union Scottish Independence - in there as Devolution Syrian refugee crisis- in Middle East Financial aid to Greece- not really an issue Military intervention in Syria- in there as Middle East Same-sex marriage- not sure if it was much of an issue, it didn't seem to cause that much political fallout or benefit (save by shifting the right of the Tories to the UKIP and the right wing of the Lib-Dems to the Tories) NHS- in there Relations with Russia- not really an issue
  7. Hey all, So I wanted to express inerest in making a Canada 2015 election scenario for the 2008 engine. What are the issues for the official 2015 scenario? I'd suggest these based on what I've read- but please feel free to correct me on anything. Leadership 2 Integrity 2 Experience 2 Issue Familiarity 1 Aboriginal Affairs 3 Business Taxes 1 Childcare 2 Crime 1 Defense 2 Democratic Reform 3 Economy 4 Energy 3 Environment 3 Gender Equality 2 Healthcare 2 Marijuana 3 Multiculturalism 2 Pensions 1 Personal Taxes 3 Quebec 1 Trade 2 Terrorism 3 And old/new/updated endorsements: The Sun Chain The Globe and Mail Toronto Star
  8. Out of curiosity, what are the issues and positions for the official 2015 scenario?
  9. I'm thinking that I may get back to it. Parties wil be (not necesarily in this order), with Leaders in Parenthesis: Labour (Ed Miliband, Alternates: David Miliband, Ed Balls, Andy Burnham, Diane Abbot, Jeremy Corbyn) Conservative (David Cameron, Alternates: Boris Johnson, George Osborne, Nicky Morgan, Theresa May, Michael Gove) Lib-Dem (Nick Clegg, Alternates: Tim Farron, Simon Hughes, Vince Cable) Scottish National (Nicola Sturgeon, Alternate: Alec Salmond) Green (Natalie Bennett, Alternate: Caroline Lucas) UKIP (Nigel Farage) National Health Action (plus CISTA) (Richard Taylor) Ulster Unionist (Mike Nesbitt) Democratic Unionist (Peter Robinson) SDLP (Alasdair McDonnell) Sinn Fein (Gerry Adams) Alliance (David Ford) Respect (includes TUSC, Socialist Labour, etc) (George Galloway) English Democrats (includes Christian, Christian Peoples, TUV) (Robin Tillbrook) Independents (includes Speaker) (John Bercow) As for parties, I think I'll replace the BNP with the National Health Action Party. If someone wants to help me with issues, that would be great.
  10. So to celebrate my big return to this forum, I will make a UK 2015 election scenario for the 201 engine. For those of you that have already made any, feel free to offer suggestions. If you have any pictures from the official scenario- please send them my way. Just for notes, I'm going to replace Veritas with the English Democrats and add the Christian and Christian People's Party in with them. Respect will include the TUSC as well. I'll get rid of the BNP and replace them with National Health Action- which will also include CISTA. As for the issues in the scenario- here's what I have so far: Asylum and Immigration Balanced Budget Devolution Economy Education Environment European Union Foreign Policy Government Housing Law and Order Military NHS Northern Ireland Political Reform Tax Policy Transport Welfare Issues fixed.
  11. Send it to me at kurtgarwood@gmail.com and I'll take a look tonight.
  12. The NSA scandal was talked about but had no effect on the way people voted; Digital Integrity the same as it was in 2009. I will include the AfD, as they almost made it into the Bundestag. Not sure about the Pirates given their collapse in the polls. I do need 4 more issues though.
  13. Issues: Balanced Budget Digital Integrity Economy Education Energy Environment Europe Financial Crisis Foreign Affairs Gay Rights Housing Immigration Jobs Public Health Reform Social Security Tax Policy Turkey Welfare
  14. Have any of you guys heard from the scenario author? I haven't. I would be up for doing my own scenario, actually.
  15. I'll post it sometime when it's perfected/I'm reasonably satisfied with it.
  16. How goes the scenario? I can offer my help if you need it.
  17. Hey all, So I resurrected Ken Kerns' old Cyberia Forever scenarios, including a few that I worked with him on that have not been released to the public (despite being finished in 2007-2008) such as the 2005, 2009, and 2013 elections. Basically Ken conceived of the country as a "Caribbean Canada", with a white anglophone majority and a troublesome indigenous/non-white minority (instead of the francophone minority). It was based on an online micronation/political simulation he was a part of, but has long-since gone defunct. I'm finished with the 1997, 2001, and 2005 scenarios; and currently working on both 2009 and 2013. I may redo the Cyberland scenario (its rival). Here are the parties in the scenarios: Labor: social democratic party, governed Cyberia from 1992 to 2005; the major "centre-left/centrist" party post-independence Conservative: conservative party, governed Cyberia from 2005 to present, the major "centre-right" party post-independence Democrats: liberal party, also since independence, has fluctuated between the centre-left and centre Freedom Party: left-wing populist party, supporting independence for the state of Felicia and increased rights for aboriginals, lasts from 1997 to 2003 Left Party: left-wing socialist party, emerges from the left-wing of the Labor Party, which exits the party after the government's decision to back the Iraq War; absorbs the Freedo Party as well. Lasts from 2003 to 2010. Green Party: left-wing environmentalist party, replaces the Left Party in 2010 Action Front: former far-right party, turned right-wing protest party, has its best result in 2005 due to an expelled conservative MP leading it, falls apart soon after ACT Party: more "mainstream" successor to the Action Front, runs in 2009 but fails to win a seat, may win a seat or two in 2013 due to the Conservatives' switch on same-sex marriage.
  18. Yes I look forward to this one as well.

  20. Scenario Introdcution With a flat-lining economy, rising unemployment, cultural polarization (between immigrants and natives, and francophones and anglophones) and increased diplomatic tensions with the European Union regarding controversial policies, the governing NCC (National Conservative Coalition) has decided to call an early election to prove that their strategy has the backing of the Polarian people. With the opposition Progressive Democrats in turmoil and the rapid rise of the left wing split between numerous factions, the Prime Minister is confident that his party can regain both the trust and support necessary to win an increased majority in six weeks’ time. However, with both of the major parties languishing below 30% in the opinion polls, most commentators are predicting a hung parliament in which either Socialist Alternative or the GPP (Green Party of Polaria) will hold the balance of power. Can Prime Minister Richard Donnelly turn his party’s fortunes around and win himself a second term? Can the Progressive Democrats win a majority of seats for the first time in almost 30 years? Or will Socialist Alternative, who have spent decades fighting for decent representation in parliament, finally find themselves in a position of great influence? It’s all to play for in what could well be Polaria’s most important general election since the Second World War. Parties NATIONAL CONSERVATIVE COALITION (NCC) – LEADER: PRIME MINISTER RICHARD DONNELLY (Me); DEPUTY PM ERIC VANDERBERG The NCC was formed in 1985 from the remains of the Conservative Party (English), Moderate Party (English-French) and Parti Nationale (French). Years of infighting and a lack of real purpose meant that the party didn’t form the Government until 1988 but ever since they have cemented themselves as a powerful force in Polarian politics, building a potent electoral machine combined with a strong financial base. Never really straying from the centre-right of the political spectrum, the party stands for traditional Christian social values and a free market economy. Though riddled with scandal over the years, the party has always been seen – even by supporters of the Progressive Democrats – as competent and determined. In recent years, they’ve enjoyed unprecedented success, leading the country with huge majorities from 1988 to 2002 and polling almost 55% of the vote in the 1995 election. Though they briefly lost power in 2006, their core support has always been strong and they were returned to government in 2011 to deal with the economic collapse that many voters blamed the Progressive Democrats for. PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS (PD) – LEADERS: EDITH BACHELOT (Radcliffe), MICHAEL STUART (Maureen Grady) In the last thirty years, the Progressive Democrats have suffered from a terrible case of ‘wrong time, wrong place’ syndrome. Formed in 1918 (as the Radical Party) to tackle the then dominant Liberal Party (as many former Liberals were upset over the party's support for World War I and its opposition to social reform, plus were concerned over the growth of the Labour and Communist Parties), the Progressive Democrats enjoyed unfettered success from the end of the First World War through to 1929, when they were finally defeated by the Conservative Party. The party renamed itself in 1958, which helped it to win elections from 1963 to 1975, and the 1984 to 1988. Originally starting out as a social liberal party, the Progressive Democrats moved toward social democracy after the name change and were responsible many reforms in the era such as legalisation of divorce and expansion of the welfare state (though universal health care and abortion legaislation were defeated). Elected in 1984 with a majority of 28 (bringing 9 years of Moderate Party-Parti Nationale rule to an end), the party offered a radical programme of nationalisation, regulation, social liberalism and democratic reform. Unfortunately for them, the Polarian economy collapsed in early 1985 and trust in the party fell through the floor. Defeated, demoralised and utterly deflated, the party very nearly imploded in the 90s, with their support in the 1995 election dropping to just 11%. Miraculously, they managed to recover lost ground over the next decade and finally returned to power in 2002 with a new, centrist europhilic "third way" agenda that was far removed from the values of the party in 1984. Unfortunately, the global economy collapsed in 2008 and the Progressive Democrats found themselves blamed for the mess once again and were crushed in 2011. SOCIALIST ALTERNATIVE (SA) – LEADERS: JACK GARDNER and ADELAIDE RAVENSDALE The successor to the Polarian Labour and Socialist Parties (both which were wiped out in the 1950s), Socialist Alternative spent the first twenty-ish years of its existence acting as little more than a protest party and a party for the slums of the capital city and left-wing activists. For years, the party meandered on with minimal representation in parliament, often pushed into fourth place by either the Liberal Party (later the Libertarian Party) or the much more moderate Social Democratic Movement. However, capitalising on the collapse of the Progressive Democrats in the early 90s, the party found itself as the official opposition on two occasions, from 1991-1995 and from 1998-2002. Beleaguered by the re-emergence of the Progressive Democrats in the 2000s, the party almost slipped into total irrelevance again. Capitalising on the ever-growing discontent with the two main parties, Socialist Alternative have seen their poll ratings soar to consistently above 20% in recent months and are expected to perform very well in the upcoming general election. GREEN PARTY OF POLARIA (GPP) – LEADER: LAYNA KNIGHTLEY Formed in 1981, the Green Party was originally set up as a single issue party to tackle ecological issues, but over the years, the party has tried to position itself as a left-wing alternative to the Progressive Democrats with a focus on environmentalism and feminism. Gaining their first seat in parliament in 1991, the party has slowly but surely grown in strength over the years and now acts as a socially liberal version of Socialist Alternative. Though their representation in parliament has never been huge, they have a presence on every single council in the country and are in control of almost 10% of them. NATIONALIST ALLIANCE (NA) – LEADER: DANIEL HOOD Formed in 1934 as a far-right party with Nazi sympathies, the Nationalist Alliance (known as the Polarian National Front until 1984) spent their first fifty years as an openly racist and anti-Semitic fringe party. However, since winning their first seat in parliament in the 1998 election, on a platform of a block on non-western immigrants (plus mass deportation of "illegals") and a staunchly conservative stance on social issues in particular, the party has tried to broaden its appeal by advocating a smaller government approach to the economy, cuts to welfare "deadbeats," restoring "law and order" against criminals and terrorists, and protection of popular middle-class entitlement programs. Stealing votes from the pro-austerity NCC, and the neoliberal Progressive Democrats, the Nationalist Alliance have slowly but surely seen their popularity increasing in recent years; especially during the Progressive Democrats' government from 2002-2011 (due to their opening of immigration laws and push for EU membership). With most opinion polls pointing to the party winning a historic three seats in the next parliament, it looks as if the party’s influence won’t be showing any signs of waning in the near future. THE LEFT (LEFT) – LEADER: IAN WEBSTER With an official ban on its existence, the Polarian Communist Party withered away from 1949 to 1968; and even after its legalisation it struggled to maintain its relevance given its ties to the Soviet Union. However, when veteran Progressive Democrat MP Joseph Peregrine had the whip withdrawn in 1989, following his refusal to support the party’s decision to support the measures in the NCC’s emergency budget, most pundits and commentators expected him to join Socialist Alternative. However, finding himself increasingly disillusioned with what any of the established parties had to offer, he instead decided to join the Communist Party. Against all the odds, Peregrine managed to get himself re-elected under the new label of The Left in 1991 (to distance himself from the collapsing USSR) and his party, which advocated the nationalisation of all major banks and services, the abolition of the link between Church and State, and a massive programme of tax and spend, quickly grew in popularity. By 1998, the party had 3 MPs and the death of Peregrine in 1999 led to the appointment of the party’s most successful leader, Harold Leighton, who helped the party gain almost 10% of the vote and 11 seats in the 2002 election. Though the party has lost a lot of support in recent years, due to the resurgence of the Progressive Democrats and the popularity of Socialist Alternative, The Left is still a powerful influence on a number of councils in Polaria and still looks set to maintain some representation in Parliament. LIBERTARIAN PARTY (LIB) – LEADER: DR. PAUL SURRATT Founded in 1867 as a buffer to the long-defunct Unionist Party and, later, as the rivals of both the Conservative Party and the Polarian Labour Party, the Libertarian Party (then known as the Liberal Party, renamed in 1972) is the oldest party in Polaria. Once the most popular party in the country, the Libertarian Party hasn’t – with the exception of a three month stint as coalition partners to the NCC in 1981,– been in Government since losing the 1918 general election. Advocating an unregulated market economy, alongside moderate social liberalism, a robust armed force to stop dictators, and membership in the European Union, the Libertarian Party appeals to left and right alike. Though their representation in Parliament has never been great, in the 1995-98 Parliament, the party found itself as the official opposition, albeit with just 19 seats. Though their popularity plunged along with all of the other parties, they’ve recently seen an increase in support – particularly in French-speaking Sylvenica and alienated Trixie Island, due to their support for the right of the Sylvenica region and Trixie Island to have complete financial autonomy – and are presenting themselves as the only alternative to almost 70 years of post-war governmental failure. SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT (SDM) – LEADER: FRANCOIS VILLENEUVE Originally formed as a protest movement in the late 1940s by Francophone nationalists who felt betrayed by the Progressive Democrats and Labour Party’ failure to support their cause, the SDM quickly replaced the Labour Party, offering much the same policy ideas as the old socialst parties but with a much greater emphasis on regional autonomy and devolution. Throughout the 60s and 70s, the party came third in a number of elections, always staying true to their centre-left values and support for devolution. However, when Réal Simard (now the NCC MP for a safe francophone seat ) became the party’s leader in 1979, the party’s social policies began to shift and they became much rural in orientation as well as pragmatic. The party’s support crumbled after they controversially chose to back the unpopular Progressive Democrats' austerity budgets in the late 1980s (in return for greater bilingual standards), and by 1991 they didn’t have a single MP left (Simard grew increasingly estranged from the SDM and joined the NCC in 1995). In recent years, as with the Libertarian Party, the SDM have found themselves doing well in the opinion polls and look set to take at least three seats in the next general election. Pre-Polls: NCC 27% PD 25% SA 22% GPP 6% NA 5% LEFT 2% LIB 3% SDM 3% OTHERS 2% UNDECIDED 5% And demographics: Anglophone: 60% (born speaking english) Francophone: 24% (born speaking french) Allophone: 16% (born-speaking another language, or speaks another language at home) White Polarian 80% Other White (mostly EU and other European migrants) 5% Visible Minority 15% (South Asian 4%, East Asian 3%, African & Caribbean 3%, Latin American 2%, Inuit 2%, Others 1%) Reformed Church 43% (Combines Anglican, Presbyterian, and Methodist traditions) Roman Catholic 25% Free Churches 10% (Non-Reformed Protestant faiths, Jehovah's Witnesses, etc.) Evangelicals 3% Orthodox 2% TOTAL CHRISTIAN 83% Hindu 2% Islam 1.5% Buddhist 1% Sikh 1% Jewish 1% Others 0.5% OTHER FAITHS: 7% NONE 10% REGIONS: AVALONIA TRIXIE ISLAND NEW CAMBRIA TERRE NEUVE SYLVENICA KINGSTOWN MIDLANDS SAGUENAY MAWBRY PENTLANDS GRENVIA PORT ROYAL STANWAY (CAPITAL CITY)
  21. I'm going to work on that tonight, when I have some free time (and I'll do a little now as well). The ridings, primary secondary conversions, and electorate trends are what needs to be fixed, along with the party financing. Out of curiosity, where did you get the results by region?
  22. I know I have Aso and Hatoyama's pictures of party leaders in that scenario, I think I have the other minor leaders in there as well- at least the New Komeito and the JCP leaders.
  23. I might be interested. Did you enjoy my new Kozakura scenario?
  24. So I've decided to work off this scenario combining this scenario with my own victoria and gaffney's tokundi. More to come later.
