The original USoDDO government had fallen into chaos and was beyond repair after an attempted coup destabalized the fragile government. 10 years after the government collapsed, a group of skillful lawmakers banded together to reestablish the government and restore order to the nation. The USoDDO has since been renamed to the DUSoSSO (as shown above) and the few laws that had been passed were reinstated. This is a simple game to see what the people of DDO would enact into law if they made up the bodies of a national government.

If you are interested in being in the game,you can join the game at any time by saying so in bold.

Other interesting info:

1) The game will begin when we have ten players.
2) The players will immediately elect a president from among themselves by majority vote.
3) The rest of the players will act as members of congress.
4) After a president is elected, Congressmen can propose legislation and all of congress votes on it.
5) A 3/5 majority and the signature from the president is required for any piece of legislation to be signed into law.
6) The president can push his own legislation to the top of the list to be voted on
7) Anyone can join

There are already laws on the books, which are outlined in this thread here:
http://www.debate.org...

After every five laws passed, a reelection will be held.

USDDO was going really good. All of a sudden there were back stabbings, civil wars, countless bickering, a coup and at least one planned assassination. How did we turn into the DDO edition of Game Of Thrones?

Freedo went bat sh*t crazy because the game wasnt going exactly the way he wanted it to and he ended up scaring off a lot of the casual players in the game when he tried to seize power. Daytona didnt want to sort it out so he resigned as president and as the game mod, giving me mod powers and leaving the nation without a leader at its biggest crisis.

And here we are

Oh, and can we do a thing where periodically a national crisis (like the hurricane) happens and we have to figure out how to deal with it?

I'm in

but the second things starting going south I am jumping off this train
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

It was far too hard to join in the last game. I had too much reading to do and everything was too fast paced.

Which is?

If you're Lannan, the best way to deal with the conflict would be that you were reinstated as a reward for extremely good behavior during the period of chaos that kept an entire state from falling into disorder.

I made a signature because I could,
I did not make it because I should,
If I should not then I still would,
Because I'm a rebel, like Robin Hood.

I'm joking, I lied, oh dear I deceived you,
If I had no conscience that I'd pretend it were true,
For I am no rebel, I'm a sheep of the norm,
Afraid to be shamed if I displayed my true form.
