North Freedonia-2011


Recommended Posts

North Freedonia is a Canadian territory. It had a long civil war between French Catholics, Celtic Catholics, English Protestants and Huguenots (French Protestants) between 1968 and 1988. Since the peace Treaty of 1988, the situation is getting somewhat better with a good and solid economy since the peace then with a blooming immigration from all parts on the world. However, the territory is again having some difficulties with extremists groups on all sides which even through they are marginal at first glance, they could strike at any moment.

These all the parties:

-Progressive Conservatives: Is mainly a non-religious party but have a strong support among the protestant middle-class both French and English and among some immigrants. It is economically conservative and somewhat libertarian on some social issues.

-Alliance: Is a non-sectarian party with both relations with the Canadian Liberal Party and Canadian Conservative Party. Have a massive support among first, second and third generation immigrants. Centrist in scope. The Green Party had merged with the Alliance in 2008.

-NDP: A wing of the Canadian NDP-it has a mixed support among some trade unions, but is weak elsewhere.

-Celtic Bloc: A Celtic nationalist party. Is socialist in scope but socially conservative on some issues with a massive support in some regions. Considered among some to give support to militias.

-Bloc National Populaire: A Francophone catholic and nationalist party. It is mainly divided between a social conservative wing and a more trade-union oriented wing. Like the Celtic Bloc, the party is having some ties to extremist groups and the party is the more anti-immigration of all major parties.

So, basically, the coalitions are working among the way that they must be composed to have each a majority in each sectarian and linguistic area. Due to their past, the Celtic Bloc and the Bloc National Populaire are only used when no other coalition partner is possible.

Based on relations with Freedonia (which is a main issue): the PC and ALL are C, the NDP is CL, the Celtic Bloc in L and the Bloc National Populaire is R.

I am making it with «STV» with about 3 FPTP seats by riding and the rest with MMP which gave a simulation of 5 to 7 seats in total. My logic is that some provinces (like BC) or cities in provincial elections (like Calgary, Edmonton or Winnipeg) have used it in the past which make it feasible with the Canadian electoral history.

And again, I began working earlier on a what-if version of the Ontario provincial election in 2011 if the referendum had passed, but I find it too boring with only four parties would could have seats even if I work on a smaller threshold by having ''regional seats'' like in the Scotland or Wales scenario, so that a smaller party could have a proportional number of seats in condition that he has three FPTP seats.

Also, coalition choices were not making the game interesting at all, as my choices were somewhat limited with no party (maybe the Greens?) that could go in coalition with any of both major parties. This is making me having a Liberal/NDP (or Liberal/Green) coalition every time, which makes the scenario not really interesting at all.

However, my experimentation with the Australian system on Ontario provincial scenario were giving me pretty good and realistic results.
