I don't know if we could pull this off, but it could be fun. It would have to go under politics of we wanted to do something legitimate. What I'm proposing, though, is that we all choose a country. There'll be a sign-ups list, and based on that, everyone will pick from first to last. We then just have a main thread were we discuss actions we want to undertake. People could PM eachother to make behind the scenes plans. I'm thinking this could have great potential because in the World Affairs Club in my district, we're doing this. Right now, we have one person planning to take Russia back to the USSR, and me planning on takig the Vatican, and then taking over the world. It gets a lot more complex and is funny as hell. If I haven't been too confusing with this, does it seem like a good idea that could work as a game?

Lmao. So we all have our specific goals?

Do we have capital and military forces too?
^LOL. So we can choose where to spend our taxes?

^Do we get to choose our form of government?

We wont chose our form of government in a UN. Or a model UN. What we would do is defend our government policies, and try to come up with ideas regarding the agenda. We prepare a resolution too, to be passed in General Assembly/ SC/ the committee chosen.

Well you could to some degree. Like Russia could be changed to the USSR. You couldn't turn America into a mirror USSR, though.

Yeah... if you really want to. Although it would depend on the agenda, I wouldn't really want anyone to. I guess this is something that would depend on the structure.

If it's meant to be fun and as a complete joke, then it would be allowed. If it's an attempt to better understand politics, the you should go with the country's actual desires.

I was thinking before of using a template for a diplomacy/politics based game we did in my US History class and adapting it to the forum, but I never got around to it. It'd be fictional countries, but I wasn't sure of the interest. Maybe now there is.

I think I'd love to do this. And, in all honesty, this is actually quite different than Special Interest (to whomever said that it was similar). This game is heavy on international negotiation, whereas my game only has two fictional countries, and is more heavy on the actual governmental offices.

For this game to work, each country is going to need their own sheet of specific resources that they have. Also, a giant list of possible laws by the mod. Each country will be able to propose specific amendments and then all the countries vote on it. Also, countries can communicate via private PMs.
