I've been thinking about this concept for a loooooooooooooooooooooooong time now: I believe almost a year! And now I think I'm actually going to try it, if there's interest.

Basically, we're going to have a Congress (or, more generically, Legislative Assembly). I will be the Speaker (who does retain a vote), Clerk, and Sergeant at Arms. And you, my dears, will be one of 15 legislators in our Assembly. I will run the Assembly on a mix of Wisconsin State Legislature proceedings, US Congress proceedings, Student Congress, and my own personal wants in legislative proceedings.

Basically, the first 14 signer-uppers will, when signing up (please pick any number. Don't go down the line, that's boring, and unrealistic!), state which party, if any, they belong to. Meaning, if I joined and founded the Ninja Party, the next guy could either say they're a Ninja party member, or say they're part of a different one. Preferably, keep the party views close to yours (not exact though), and also more mainstream (ie, Labour, Lib Dem, Democrat, Republican, Tory, etc.). I also ask that, if you see a party a person is in whom you agree with, please join that party. The purpose of the parties is that each party will have a PM for discussion, etc, as well as voting of a party leader. You also will be able to try and maintain party discipline (all votes are conscience votes), as well as move to stand informal for party caucuses.

I'll also ask for your advice/assistance in this thread. We're legislating, obviously. However, I'm still trying to bang out the reasoning. Like, do I provide a scenario that needs to be fixed? Do I present a status quo? I mean, you all have to know the current state of our fictional nation (which I call Promethia).

Anyway: sign up if interested (w/ party). Oh, and remember your number! Tis how I will call on "speakers" in game/thread (ie, "The gentleman from the 7th.")

Just for people who have been confuzzled. The game hasn't started yet.

Also, I had a feeling everyone would join a different party. Sh1t.

You probably should have created a few parties and forced people to pick one of them.

Either that, or make everyone independent.
