  1. It would be great for private servers to be able to customize their government to a system where they feel is best. Some places will want a casual server, a serious RP environment, or even a hardcore RP environment. Maybe a game mechanic can be created where you can create a branch / agency and add what power that position or department has. Or they can choose just to modify the current agencies or positions. The person can set divisions specific roles as well. Like a CFO can fire anyone in the finance department or the Captain in patrol can fire any officer in patrol or whatever. The following are examples of options you can add (if possible). They can be added to the organization as a whole or a specific role. -Ability to remove people from the organization or another organization. -Ability to hire people for your organization. -Ability to give strikes to people in your organization. -Ability to give written warnings to people in your organization. -Ability to arrest and detain a person (and if using official server system or not). -Ability to fine a person. -Ability to file charges on a person. -Ability to accept or deny a person's charge(s). -Ability to veto or accept a bill. -Ability to create and vote on a state bill. -Ability to create and vote on a county ordinance. -Ability to create and vote on a city ordinance. -Ability to accept or veto a city ordinance. -Ability to override a veto with 2/3 vote. -Ability to have final vote during a vote tie. -Ability to impeach another government official. -Ability to nominate a judicial officer. -Ability to accept or deny a nomination to a judicial officer. -Ability to control and manage sales, income, and property tax. -Ability to view income of a organization. -Ability to manage prices of a organization. -Ability to manage and add/buy assets to a organization (vehicles, inventory, drugs, weapons, etc). -Ability to manage employee salaries. -Ability to manage the organization's social media (in-game social media). -Ability to control gang or cartel locations. -Ability to access (a specific) police station. -Ability to access (a specific) fire station. -Ability to access (a specific) government building. -Ability to access certain police uniforms (detective, SWAT, etc). -Ability to access certain assets and those types of assets (weapons - glock 17 or glock 22 , vehicles - dodge charger or honda civic, etc) -Ability to accept or deny driver's license application. -Ability to revoke / suspect driver's license. -Ability to start / manage elections and votes. -Ability to pronounce someone dead. If I were to create a private server, I'd want to have a realistic checks and balances system (to the US / California), California based laws, etc. And other private servers may want something else. And this would be too hard to make happen on official servers. Which is why I suggest for just giving the option for people to customize the internal positions and departments within the game.

Religious practices may be restricted if they pose a threat to public safety.

  5. Regulation Lobbyists

    As the CEO and Founder of The Fair Market Merchant Bureau, I will be employing several persons to fill lobbyist positions immediately. The sustainability of the economy is tantamount to the sustainability of life itself. Without the proper regulations a "free capitalist market" becomes a volitile pulpit of price gouging that can only be considered hazardous to a flourishing economy that benefits everyone. All those interested in becoming lobbyists in support of the FMMB should send me a message with the following information: Player name: In-game name: Thoughts on the FMMB: Reasoning on why you want to join: Convince me to hire you in one paragraph or less: The FMMB is an equal-opportunity employeer.

  6. More Political Discussion!

    Hi guys, it's me Mr. Lucious Lee Times. I'm here to tell you guys there are about 6 guys running for Governor of the Identity Island including myself. We've given policies and laws, but we don't think of everything. We need you all to be asking questions and truly trying to figure out who you want to vote for! Just like this past American Presidential Election was big, this is too!
  7. The Royal Family

    For everyone joining , Welcome to The Royal Family! You are here because you are a leader or member of an elite business, private military, or police group and would like to be protected by other players, aided by other players and in a brotherhood with other players. Codes the name, The Royal Family. Also, financial benefits are given to leaders of organizations! $$$ I, Mr. Lucious Lee Times aka PrezLegend have wisely constructed an alliance of Businesses, Military, and Police Officers all together under the loyalty to myself as Governor. Royal Guard: Alpha Military Corporation Businesses: The High Society, Identity Broadcasting Police Officers: @CadeStrikemen _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Policies (Simplified) : Gun Control: It's necessary that each player be equipped with some sort of protection. The crime rate is going to be ridiculously high. I'll permit each household to have either one shotgun or pistol for protection. This applies to common citizens, not police officers. However, you must be registered to own a gun. Government: My envisioned government will be a Constitutional Dictatorship. It's the best way for the leader to make decisions quickly and get things implemented! I say constitutional because the leader must still abide by laws. He can't just do as he wishes and have all the say so. Voting will still exist, representatives will as well. Only thing truly different is that the leader gives the final yes or no. Taxes: Taxes will be a very simple flat tax for the game. 10% of whatever your career makes you must give in taxes. 10% tax will also be placed on corporation income. Drugs: Weed, Tobacco, Alcohol, and Over-The-Counter Medicine will be legal drugs on the island. Minimum Wage: $10 an hr is the lowest wage businesses will be allowed to give to employees. Healthcare: We want everyone to be able to have care with all the obvious crime there will be. So, if you make less than $20 an hr you will be granted a fee of $100 per month. If you make $20 - $50 you'll be charge $200 and if you make any higher than $50 an hr you'll be charged $300 towards your health insurance. This monthly bill will provide unlimited health coverage for all your health needs. Laws (Detailed) : Justice: "Eye for an Eye", what one man does to another illegally the government will have done to him. For example, you steal from a man. Whatever the worth of the items you stole the government will take from you and give to the one you stole from. You kill a man with no regard, the government will kill you with no regard. Five Characteristics of a Lucious Times Economy 1. The government creates a central economic plan. The five-year plan sets economic and societal goals for every sector and region of the country. Shorter-term plans convert the goals into actionable objectives. 2. The government allocates all resources according to the central plan. It tries to use the nation's capital, labor and natural resources in the most efficient way possible. It promises to use each person's skills and abilities to their highest capacity. It seeks to eliminate unemployment. 3. The central plan sets the priorities for the production of all goods and services. These include quotas and price controls. Its goal is to supply enough food, housing, and other basics to meet the needs of everyone in the country. It also sets national priorities. These include mobilizing for war or generating robust economic growth. 4. The government owns monopoly businesses. These are in industries deemed essential to the goals of the economy. That usually includes finance, utilities, and automotive. There is no domestic competition in these sectors. 5. The government creates laws, regulations, and directives to enforce the central plan. Businesses follow the plan's production and hiring targets. They can't respond on their own to free market forces. (Source: Bon Kristoffer G. Gabnay, Roberto M Remotin, Jr., Edgar Allan M. Uy, editors. Economics: Its Concepts & Principles. 2007. Rex Book Store: Manila.) Advantages Planned economies can quickly mobilize economic resources on a large scale. They can execute massive projects, create industrial power, and meet social goals. They aren't slowed down by lawsuits from individuals or environmental impact statements. Command economies can wholly transform societies to conform to the government's vision. The new administration nationalizes private companies. Its previous owners attend "re-education" classes. Workers receive new jobs based on the government's assessment of their skills. Disadvantages This rapid mobilization often means my economy will mow down other societal needs. For example, the government tells workers what jobs they must fulfill. It discourages them from moving. The goods it produces aren’t always based on consumer demand. But citizens find a way to fulfill their needs. They often develop a shadow economy, or black market. It buys and sells the things my economy isn't producing. Leaders' attempts to control this market weakens support for them, SO I won't try to control it! The Tale of Lucious Times Lucious Lee Times (myself) is a character that grew up homeless on the streets of Los Angeles. In a city of crime Lucious had to be on the lookout at every turn. In Lucious' young life he grew to be very aware of the crime filled city and knew he had to do something to ensure his safety. At 15, Lucious started an organization with a few neighborhood boys called "The Peacekeepers". These boys were brutal. They cleaned the streets of crime in the most direct ways possible. Showing up to criminal hideouts and wasting away every member present, making fake visits to prisons and jails to poison and eliminate those criminals on the inside, making appointments with the LAPD to let THEM know how things would be done. The Peacekeepers were vigilantes at the finest. The city soon had a crime rate so low new schools were being built and more people migrated to the lovely city of Los Angeles. Through all the harsh deeds The Peacekeepers had done Lucious never was present for the actual action. He was the mastermind, the planner, the brain of the whole operation. Sitting behind a desk as leader of The Peacekeepers. Oh how things looked great! Lucious had made something out of nothing and became a city icon and hero as he grew older. Though soon, things made a turn for the worst. Lucious' closest partner, his beautiful fiance was capture by a man known by the name Gustavo Fring. A now well-known high profile methamphetamine drug lord. He did so becuase by cleaning up the city Lucious' made distribution for Mr. Fring come to a complete stop in the area. Lucious grew furious, so furious he began to walk into a whole new light. The Peacekeepers became a weapon at Lucious' disposal. He thought long and hard and then finally had a plan. After finding where Fring was located Lucious and his team of over 200 men approached the location, guns loaded and ready for anything. However, Fring was already aware of Lucious' presence and decided to retaliate. Fring killed Lucious' fiance, then sent out total war upon Lucious and his men. In the end only two men were left standing; Fring and Lucious. After few words, Lucious caught leverage and killed Fring. Though Lucious was severly injured by gunshot. He called the LAPD. With quickness, Lucious was saved and had chance to speak with the LAPD Chief of Police. He thanked Lucious for his doings and after a long conversation of tears the chief left. Lucious began to realize how much he'd loss. All his men, his fiance, his hold on the city from crime all gone! Three weeks later Lucious walked out of the hospital, grab all $789,211 he'd raised with his people, and began to leave town for a new home. A place called Turtle Beach on Identity Island. However, when he got to the town line he found something waiting for him. Over half the city was standing their with gold-colored gold-scented candles. Some of them stood to give thanks, but many stood ready to follow him wherever he went. A woman by the name of Dorris Jean approached Lucious and told him this: "We give these candles to represent who you are to the city. Forever will you be the gold we all love, the gold we all know has provided, the gold we all know will pay the price. For to us you are a leader and friend. For you have become like royalty in this city. And with you royalty we be your royal family." Lucious was proud. All negative feelings previous washed away. Lucious now felt the obligation to continue to lead. For he knew he was wise and could give great leadership. This time he wouldn't limit himself to the leadership of a groups of boys who run a city, no. That was below him now. Now he needed to lead in higher heights where he could have greater impact and influence. A position of power such as Governor would do the trick! So he then decided to venture into the political field of leadership once he arrived in his new home. A few hours later after a celebratory evening Lucious and the now called Royal Family left. 12 days later they arrived in Turtle Beach on the Identity island and the rest is soon to be foretold...

  11. Healthcare- Roger for Governor

    Healthcare is going to be a hot button issue on the island and I believe that it shouldn't be a government issued thing at all. This is going to be a big point of difference between me and the other candidates running for governor. There are many reasons why I feel this way. The first reason would be that the government has a track record of doing a poor job in the healthcare area. If you look at a real life example in Canada you will find huge waiting lists and people actually coming to America for operations and procedures. Another reason for no governmental healthcare is that I don't want the government to be responsible for your life. This may sound harsh but I don't want to take the blame for lives lost due to a failed healthcare policy. The third reason is the cost, the cost of healthcare to the government would be high and the care provided would most likely be lackluster (very generalized). With limiting the cost of healthcare to the government, the government could spend the money elsewhere like businesses for one example. With no government healthcare and leaving it to the private companies this would promote competition (which would drive down costs), and give you better quality care. There will be some money allocated to help private healthcare companies though. It will be small maybe 5% of the money that the government takes in will be allocated towards that. This money will go towards running costs and possibly training of their staff. Questions? Please ask and I will try to respond to the best of my ability. Note: Since the game isn't out there is no promises due to the possible limitations that we don't know about yet.
  12. Corruption- Roger for Governor

    Corruption is going to be a huge issue especially in the police and government. This topic is going to explain my view on this issue and the way I'm going to combat it. For starters I'm going to make a law that makes all elected officials live by the laws they propose/pass (including myself) through. The next thing I'm going to do is set up districts where the people of those districts vote for representatives to represent them in a congress like set up. The only requirement is that they have to have no prior illegal gang involvement or criminal record, as well as no party affiliation. These people will help uphold a system of checks and balances to make sure no law is too overbearing. This will also assure that the will of the people alone will be met from that district. There will be a lawyer appointed from the reps (of the districts) to look into the governmental spending and cabinet members accounts. He must have no criminal record or party affiliation. This will make sure no money is flowing into criminal accounts. The police will have a strict vetting process and training to hopefully route out any bad eggs. There will be term limits. You can only be governor for 2 terms, each term being 1 year (may change). The governor will then peacefully pass down power to whoever was voted in. We will do this so no one becomes a dictator and will promote fresh ideas. The last thing is that the government will produce a public budget report at the end of each month. This will state where all the money was spent unless that information is classified for whatever reason. Questions? Please ask and I will try to answer to the best of my abilities. *Note: Since the game isn't out there is no promises due to the possible limitations that we don't know about yet.

  14. How will it work?

    Greetings my fellow citizens of identity! I have to open the discussion regarding the layout of the political system in identity, as reading through the forum posts I can't seem to find answers to my question of "How individuals participate in the political process". Will individuals be elected to stand for a political party like we do in the US? i.e. primaries and debates? So players can join together to create an official party (for example the Democrats and Republicans) and meet to create policies to then present in the election? Or will everyone be standing as independents in attempts to run as Governor? I'm rather curious, as if the party system is the direction it would most certainly make for an exciting political process! Regards, Cameron! Hope to see you all in game soon!!!!

  16. Hey Guys, Here are a few tips for you if you are looking to create political parties. First start with something you know and adapt game knowledge to it. Usually you can do this by watching movies and a youtube series on politics. Politics for Dummies is a great place to start. Second, Do NOT over expand. A lot of people that try to create political parties want to expand wider and wider. This is a bad thing to do. Start Small. Keep in the back of your mind that politics in games never work out for the best interest of everyone. Not to mention they often fail and fall apart before they can do any good. Third, choose something easy to work with. Do not worry with cabinet members, or secretaries. Keep it small to a number of 3 or less people at the start. Fourth, Do NOT give up. The first moment you let someone else take the reigns of your creation, you have lost the war. Your dream will be gone, and there will be no resurrection of your dead political party. ---------- Q: What political parties work? A: Dictatorships. Explanation: Dictatorships work because they do not rely on other people who can often times be unreliable. Q: Should we attempt an American Congress (American Politics)? A: No. Not only will you fail miserably, you will establish hate for your character. Q: What about any other country's government? A: The only government system I have known to work was a British Parliament. It worked for about 8 months on an Altis Server (It has since shutdown, ie, could not find the name) Essentially they built a voting system for law changes in the game. It worked for a long time considering the nature of servers. Q: Where have you seen a Dictatorship work? A: I've seen Staff on many servers become dictators, or were already dictators. Dictatorship establishes discipline and respect. It's only when you shy back from the dictatorship and allow for more democracy when it fails, and your community fails. Pick something and stick with it. Q: From where do you have your knowledge? A: Come on guys.. Let's face it, we're all Arma 3 life aficionados. All of my knowledge comes from failed systems and servers.
  17. Civil Revolt/ Revolution

    Do you think it would be likely that a civil revolt, revolution, civil war or war of independence would occur in Identity? I think it would be interesting what would happen, especially for the two latter, as separate groups and militias would arise -such as US loyalists and separatists- and fight for power. It'd be also interesting to what caused these events and how the government would deal with them. Political turmoil could also add to the roleplay of the game.
  18. Eng. Can we do the revolution and how it will work ? Sorry for my English , Comrades Rus. Сможем ли мы совершить переворот или революцию , против тиранического правительства
  19. Embassies

    So this is something I found on another area of the forum, but thought it should be posted here. 1. What about having embassies? Since every server will have it's own government, you could have embassies for each on all the fficial servers. i.e., on Server 1 you can find the Server 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc embassies. This would add more jobs, as then as governor, you could appoint ambassdors to all the other servers. 2. With these embassies, you may think, what's the point in these embassies, this is where inter-server trading comes in. If you make something on Server 1, then people in the other Servers can purchase your item at the Server 1 Embassy in their own servers. 3. If not embassies, this could be a use for the airport, having it so that if you take your goods to the airport, people in other servers can then buy them at their own airports. Thanks to @Syym for posting the topic to give me this idea.
