  1. Manifesto - Central Royalist Union

    Central Royalist Union Manifesto Introduction The Central Royalist Union is a political party. The Central Royalist Union, referred to as the CRU henceforth, was formed on 10 January, 2018 on the Identity RPG Forum by the current Party Secretary, Kenneth Summers. As a political party, the CRU wishes to form government at the island of Identity. The CRU is not a single-member party. This document consists mainly of the Manifesto of the Central Royalist Union. The following is a list of ideologies and philosophies upheld by the CRU. Kindly do not assume that they are in an order of significance. Equity and Egalitarianism: The dignity of every individual is respected, and each person deserves fair treatment in an equitable society. Thus, the CRU adopts and enforces a set of rights to maintain equality. This adoption of rights is explained in the next section of the document. Royalism: Our vision must not be confused with. We believe that monarchist is not the correct way of describing the CRU. Identity's Government mechanism necessitates timely elections that bring change. In that sense, Identity shall remain a democracy as the people will always retain the right to choose their leader. It must be understood that CRU does not wish to establish a monarchy. The CRU wishes to contest for the position of Governor and establish a Royalty that works along with the Government as a formal head of State and a symbol of absolute power, yet being strictly subject to the law. Thus, the CRU is a 'Royalist’ party that supports the idea of a Royalty that yields no effective powers, but remains a popular symbol, of power, nobility and divinity, and part of the Government. The functioning of the proposed government is dealt with in later sections of the document. Classical Marxism: The political ideals of Karl Marx are respected by the CRU. Greed and material desires will find their way into every society, and the island of Identity will be no exception. We fear that a proletariat mass will indeed exist in the form of industrialists and corporate giants that might exploit the economically weak, deprive them of their rights and dignity. One can easily foresee the situation where oppression of the working class is commonplace on our island, where people with less economic advantages are forced through hardships and paid insufficiently by their employers; a situation that will prove destructive to the welfare of a free society. We want to make sure that Identity forever remains a place where each individual gets the opportunity to prosper, free of any suppression by any upper class. The CRU may not endorse all of Marx's visions, but we believe in his idea of an oppression-less society where no class oppresses another. In summary, the CRU is comprehensively Liberal, uniquely Royalist and partly Marxist, as far as political philosophies are concerned. Rights of the People A government formed by the CRU will promise to guarantee the following rights to the citizens. The rights also form the basis of all policies of the CRU. (The following articles have been selectively adapted from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaimed by the United Nation Organisation and edited according to the limitations of Identity RPG. There are a total of 21 rights recognised by the CRU.) Article 2: Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedom set forth without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, or other status. Article 3: Everyone has the right to liberty and security of person. Article 5: No one shall be subjected to degrading treatment or punishment.

No one shall be held guilty of any penal offence on account of any act or emission which did not constitute a penal offence at the time when it was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than the one that was applicable at the time the penal offence was committed. Article 12: No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family or home, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to protection of the law against such interference or attacks. Article 17: 1. Everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others. 2.

Everyone has the right to form and to join trade unions for the protection of his interests. Article 24: Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay. Article 25: Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services and the right to security in the event of unemployment or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control. Article 27: 1. Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits. 2. Everyone had the right to the protection of moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary or artistic production of which he is the author. Article 28: Everyone is entitled to a social order in which the rights and freedoms set forth here can be fully realized. Article 29: 1. Everyone has duties to the community. 2. In the exercise of his rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law solely for the purpose of securing due recognition and resurrect for the rights and freedoms of others and of meeting the just requirements of morality, public order and the general welfare. Article 30: Nothing here may be interpreted as implying for any group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein. Basic Laws and Policies This section consists of the official policies and the formal laws the CRU will potentially bring into effect. According to the Central Royalist Union, there is distinction between laws and right only in a real society, since fundamentally rights are the regulations people deserve and laws are the regulations they get. In an ideal society, the rights are the laws in themselves. Most of the our basic laws are outlined in the section dedicated to the Rights. Yet there are a few things that require attention since they are more important to the Manifesto. (Please note that the following prospective laws are exclusively subject to change, especially once the mechanics for politics become solid, which is also a reason why these regulations are not written in the form of Rights.) Drug Use Laws: The CRU believe that use of drugs that are highly addictive and have high potential for abuse should be prohibited. The rest of the reasoning will preferentially be kept a secret. The CRU will make the following statement only. Use of Schedule I drugs^ (as described by Controlled Substances Act enacted by U.S. Congress) is prohibited. ^ Includes marijuana Tax Laws: To maintain financial equity, the CRU wishes to use tax brackets to be levied on different income classes. Taxes will be low for the working class and high for the wealthy. Additionally, we believe in levying a Corporate Tax on most corporations operating on the Island. Corporations that hold a royal status certificate granted by the Royal Government will be the only ones which will be exempted from the Corporate Tax. Same rules apply for Business Tax. A low Sales Tax will be levied as well. The CRU will make the following statements only. All citizens will pay 10% of their income as Income Tax. 5% will be deducted from all sales that are carried out as Sales Tax. Arms Laws: Possession of fixed-term licensed firearms by civilians will be considered legal by the Government. The possession of the following firearms by civilians will be generally prohibited. Fully-automatic or semi-automatic weapons, rockets, mortars, firearms disguised as another item and any weapon designed for the discharge of noxious substance. For now, the CRU will not make a statement. Laws on Emergency Services: Articles 22 & 25 form the basis of our Healthcare Laws. In addition to that, we believe that emergency medical services should be rendered free of cost, along with other emergency services. The CRU will make the following statement only. All emergency services are free of any cost. Government Structure This section of the agenda deals with the CRU's idea of a government and its structure. The Government will consist of six different offices and roles, one of which will not hold any direct administrative power. They are discussed in detail. Please note that with the exception of the position of Governor, all offices and roles will be unofficial, but absolutely formal. All the Offices command respect since they will be a part of the government and will be treated just as respectfully as the Governor, though they may not be officially a part of government. Governor: The Governor acts as the head of the government and executive. He has the following roles. Signing or vetoing regulations proposed by the Secretariat, which consists of three Secretaries and the Auditor General. Convening sessions of the Secretariat. Delivering a regular report on the condition of the state to the citizens. Granting reprieves and pardons upon the recommendation of the Secretary for Justice and revoking conditional pardons. Extending formal invitations to representatives to form the Secretariat and to fill vacancies. Secretary for Financial Affairs: The Secretary for Financial Affairs oversees formulation of policy and implementation of financial, monetary, and economic matter. He has the following roles. Preparing the government's fiscal budget for approval by Secretariat Attending Secretariat sessions Laying the government's estimates of revenue and expenditure before the Secretariat in a report Acting as the government's treasurer and managing the government's financial assets Managing debt and coordinating financial activities for the other Secretaries Receiving, securing and accounting for all disbursements of public funds Overseeing legislation pertaining to the Corporate, Business and Public Finance sector Providing advice to Governor on economic and financial matters Secretary for Home Affairs: The Secretary for Home Affairs is responsible for the internal security and welfare policy. The Secretary also has authority over the Armed Police Forces. He has the following roles. Preserving, maintaining and enhancing security and public order against any threat and combating insurgency Attending Secretariat sessions Coordinating development activities such as industries, agriculture, fisheries, health, social welfare, urban and rural development and transport Enforcing regulations pertaining to possession of firearms Making efforts to stop the supply, distribution and abuse of drugs Managing and modernizing Armed Police Cadres and overseeing their operations Maintaining relations between municipal administration and the State Managing prisons and reformatories Overseeing protocol functions Supervising of provision and swift functioning of all emergency services Secretary for Media & Justice: The Secretary for Media & Justice has two major functions. He has overall responsibility for strategy and policy across matters of culture and media and the organisation of the justice and legal system. He has the following roles. Curating the arts, music and culture and the respective creative industries and managing libraries, museums and galleries Overseeing of Radio or Television broadcasting services Attending Secretariat sessions Protecting creative rights of publishers and handling entertainment licensing Overseeing gambling services Maintaining and regulating press freedom and news publishing outlets Constituting and organising the court system Advising on appointment of court judges Collecting data on institution, disposal, pendency of cases in courts and monitoring the status of under trial prisoners Proposing various schemes to the Secretariat to facilitate development and modernization of infrastructure for judiciary Dealing with matters like grants of pardons and remissions Kindly note that the roles of the three Secretaries are mostly advisory and legislative. Their principal function is to provide as a means of division of power and the sharing of responsibilities. Actual power lies in the hands of the Governor and only he can make the final decisions by choosing to act on the proposals introduced in the Secretariat or not. Secretariat Ombudsman: The Secretariat Ombudsman has the duty to investigate complaints and attempt to resolve them through recommendations or mediation. He has the following roles. Receiving, investigating and resolving complaints about the administrative decision making and practices of the Royal Government Improving public administration for the benefit of all citizens through own motion investigations and liaison programs with the Secretariat Investigating cases of corruption, negligence, inefficiency and misbehaviour not only against the government officers but also against judges of the courts The King and the Royal Family: The King, once the CRU forms government, will become the unofficial but formal Head of State. As Head of State, he and the Royal Family will serve as a symbol of absolute power for the Government. Among the filth of temporal politics, the Royalty will be a divine example of nobility to the common people. The Royalty will act as a model to strive towards, so that people can rise from their daily lives. With its sacred nature it will set itself apart from the other governments. Along with symbolic purposes, the King and other members of the Royal Family will also have the duty of making regular speeches to the citizens and being a part of various public events and ceremonies. The Royalty will have little to no effective governmental authority. The King has the right to be a part of and only observe Secretariat sessions. In an event where the three Secretaries have declared no confidence in the Governor, the Monarch may take a special role of resolving issues of the Secretariat or publicly declaring his own no-confidence as a Head of State. If the CRU loses elections, the Royalty will exist as a normal family. They will still be considered a Royal family, but they will not act as Head of State. A brief note on the functioning of the Royal Government. The Invitation process: In accordance to procedures, the CRU will propose its gubernatorial candidate. On the election of our candidate, the Invitation process will begin. The Governor will choose any four individuals and invite them to take the roles of Secretaries and form the Secretariat with him. The invited individuals will usually be the four politicians who secured consecutively less number of votes than the CRU, but the Governor has the right to invite anyone. He may choose to invite persons from the CRU itself to take the roles, or invite different politicians from different parties. The invited individual definitely reserves the right to reject, and the Governor may look for an alternative in that case. In this way, the people indirectly elect the Secretaries. Once the Secretariat is completely formed, the Royalty will be (re)instated to power. The Governor will convene regular sessions of the Secretariat and each member will perform their respective roles. The Confidence motion: In a Confidence motion, the government is divided into five. A vote is carried out among the Secretariat Ombudsman, the Finance Secretary, Home Secretary, Justice Secretary and the Royal Monarch. Each individual has one vote. If 3 out of 5 votes or more state no confidence, then the Governor will be considered no longer deemed fit to hold his position, either because he is inadequate in some respect, is failing to carry out obligations, or is making decisions that the citizens and/or Secretariat feel detrimental. In this case, a public statement will be made to the citizens. The Secretaries will resign and the Secretariat will be dissolved. The Monarch may or may not choose to resign and/or abdicate as Head of State. The Governor will continue to stay in power without the support of the rest of the government until the next elections or early election are held. Conclusion The Central Royalist Union promises one of the most comprehensive and extensively planned system of government. A truly democratic government, and a government truly sacred and ideal. As Identity RPG is set to become a very immersive and highly interactive MMORPG, there is a need for an in-game entity that enforces rights and obligations that each citizen abides to. The CRU's Royal Government is not about a single powerful Governor. The Governor's power is shared by mostly directly elected representatives of the citizens and is an institution in its whole. The CRU's Secretariat acts as a miniature multi-party parliament which can make the law-making sensible. This government structure is one of the main and unique features of the Central Royalist Union, along with the idea of establishment of a Royalty. To build this Identity, the Central Royalist Union and its members, seek your vote so that our vision comes to life. Let’s embrace this dream of creating an ideal and noble society. An Identity that is free, fair and dynamic. An Identity that protects the rule of law. An Identity that promises of a strong, righteous society An Identity that protects its citizens against threats like terrorism and organised crime. An Identity that defends businesses. An Identity where everyone can succeed. The CRU's Identity!
  2. 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.
  3. Freedom of speech Hello. i want to show you what we can achieve with the combination between Militarism-Liberalism. I strave toward complete freedom of speech. I want that anyone can say what's on their minds. Open Borders This country has a LOT of unused space. There we can build houses! And then we can open the borders of this beautiful land and let every man, child and woman inside our country. But there is a small catch: the immigrant needs to get a job within the country in 1 month. If the subject fails to get a job within that period of time, The subject will be exported back to his/her motherland and will NOT get a second chance. Defense/Offense I want to make the army ten times as strong as they were before. Weapon Research priority will be tripled and will be funded with the taxpayers money. (Note: The taxes do not raise because of this.) Military drafts will become active after you turn 18 and will stop after you turn 21. Military issue guns will be of much higher quality. Police will become military. Police will become much stronger, and will receive the same paycheck and training as a soldier. Wellfare People above 65 receive wellfare of $1100 a month. Healthcare Every person in this country MUST have a health insurance.
  4. State Legislature

    Hey, I recently posted this thread into another section of the forums (apparently, it was the wrong section), so I would love and to try to revisit this topic if we can. It's a really interesting idea that can allow for checks and balances. I'm not sure if this is on purpose or not, but it would make sense to have one. This state legislature here would have the responsibilities of making/producing laws, budgeting the state's budget, and approve nominations from the Governor's office. Not only would this make the game a lot more realistic and help with managing the budget, but this would help with parties getting/retaining their majority and help people get their political career started. Plus, like I stated up above, this branch would help with government oversight and transparency. Now, of course making a 200+ legislative branch isn't gonna work, so I propose that we cut the proportions down to a much better fitting size; about 11 representatives and 9 senators. Ergo, we can have about 3 senators per city (equal representation) and about ~3-4 representatives per city (based off of state population). In total, this would allow for a 20-member Congress. Now, rather or not these numbers are too small or to big is the debate. Me, personally? I feel as if these numbers are just about right. We don't want too many seats as elections wouldn't be competitive and we don't want too little seats as it would be really easy for a party to take control of everything: remember, a democracy functions best if all parties are represented. Anyways, this is just my two little cents. I am available to explain more in-depth of how this would happen/work, but I think it would be a really good idea to implement into this community. Thanks, - Kori
  5. State Legislature

    Hey, I'm new to this community so correct me if I'm wrong when I say that we don't have a state legislative branch (yet). I'm not sure if this is on purpose or not, but it would make sense to have one. This state legislature here would have the responsibilities of making/producing laws, budgeting the state's budget, and approve nominations from the Governor's office. Not only would this make the game a lot more realistic and help with managing the budget, but this would help with parties getting/retaining their majority and help people get their political career started.

Thanks, - Kori P.S. Sorry for grammar mistakes in advance if there are some present. I'm not the best with English right now considering that it's 2 AM in the morning.
  6. Political Party Database

    Political Party Database After having looked at some other boards within the forums, I had noticed that we don't really have a place to find information on the most popular, upcoming political parties here on Identity, except for via The Podium board which would require you to scroll through numerous threads and pages to find the right party for you. I wanted to make this thread to try and group together the most common parties with some information as to who leads it, what the parties believe in and their policies. I also understand that as politics will be one of the final aspects induced into the final game, there hasn't been much need for a post like this, however, many are still interested in the political aspect and I'm always willing to add new parties in to the list via request. If you would like your party added, send me a private message on the forums, or, much more preferably via Discord (ItsDev#3140). I would also like to ask the leaders of the parties mentioned - or those who wish for their parties to be added - to contact me in regards to writing a brief description which best describes their party and the views in which their parties share. The Hamilton Party Leader: @BrianHamilton Website: THP Campaign Thread: The Hamilton Party Brief Description: The Hamilton Party believes in creating a safer and more equal community through protecting the citizens of Identity from hate crime whilst also working to improve funding for the emergency services such as Law Enforcement, Medical Service and the Fire & Rescue Service, whilst also creating more job opportunities for those unemployed.

Being the eldest current party, The Royal Family has set legacy and intends to continue that walk in its existence. Gene Smith Candidate: @GeneSmith Thread: Gene Smith for Governor The People's Revolutionary Party Leader: @DLimit Thread: The People's Revolutionary Party (P.R.P) Brief Description: The People's Revolutionary Party is a Direct-Democratic Communist party that desires to provide individuals with Universal food, clothing, shelter, energy, healthcare, education, and transportation.

  7. About The Parties

  9. Mein Traum (TTP)

    Mein Traum: My Dream The Totalitarian Party (TTP) I dream of a society where no law abiding citizen, who contributes to society and continues to strive for improvement, will ever have to feel threatened by the lack of job security, failed economy, or anarchy. I dream of a place where people are given the chance to succeed, regardless of their economic background. I dream of a near-perfect meritocracy. Centralizing all forms of major public transport, electricity and energy sources, military, law enforcement, healthcare and other core, essential aspects to society will ensure that no private organisation is able to profit off these industries by taking more out of the government fund through contracts, but instead will allow the government to reinvest in these facilities and industries for the common folk. Achieving autarky (self-sufficiency) will allow the city and the country to avoid horrific trade deals with other nations, prioritizing our nation's needs first. This will also be ensured by having a strong, patriotic, nationalistic leader who is willing to do whatever it takes to protect the loyal citizens of the nation. Any questions ask (BTW I don't speak any german)
  10. Running for office

    Hey so I'm new to this community. I was wondering, when you're running for office, how to the elections work? I read that elections may be once every 2 weeks. So would candidates also hold election rallys like running for office the U.S? How would the time frame work with those if elections are so frequent
  11. I made a nice flag!

    So I made a nice flag for the country where the map is based in Red represents the Identity Community, Blue represents the Leadership and order. Also this flag can be made to fit with other political ideologies, however, I prefer to keep the flag as neutral as possible Inspiration was the flag of Cyprus (im from the Netherlands)

  17. Overview The Constitutionalist Republican Party or CRP heavily supports state's rights, and believes in large state government. Now with that said, we do as well support a large federal government. We believe that governments power over states should be limited, but in certain circumstances the government should have power over states. We believe that the power between the two should be equally balanced. The CRP also believes in separation of Church and government, to an extent. We believe that Religious beliefs should not determine the entirety of a political decision, but that it should still be taken into consideration. Our current candidate is our founder Coolpanther. Policies Gay Marriage We do support gay marriage. We believe that there is no reason a man or woman should not be able to marry someone else of the same sex. With that said, we will not force others to agree. If A marriage service refuses to serve a gay marriage event based on their religious believes, then they will not have to. This is America after all, so as homosexuals will have the freedom to be wed, another citizen will have the same right to refuse service. Gun laws The CRP strongly supports the second amendment; the right to bear arms. The right to bear arms is an American's god given right. Conceded or Open-carry, the right to bear arms is applied. NO man is allowed to arrest you when you are in possession with a firearm. The laws concerning murder, should be properly addressed. Murder, the act of killing man, is indeed illegal. The right to bear arms means, carry them. Shooting someone will result in jail time, if proving guilty. When the act of murder has been illustrated, it is not the gun that killed the man, it is the person how had pulled the triggers fault. Religious freedom We believe that every American has the right to express their religious views. If a man wants to hang up a cross in a public area, he may. If a man wants to where a Star of David Necklace, he may. Abortion The CRP stands strongly against abortion. Through Science, we have discovered that life begins at conception. We don't believe that abortion would be considered "murder", but we do consider the child to be killed in the process of abortion. Terrorism We understand and accept the threat of terrorism. We believe that terrorism is the effect of both personal, and religious beliefs. Weather it be Islamic, Catholic, or even Jewish terrorism, it is still TERRORISM. We believe that We must understand this fact, in order to properly fight this threat Tax We believe that the tax level should vary depending on the average income of the citizen. Tax levels would most likely vary depending on various other areas of the political climate, at the time. OFFICAL SONG OF THE CRP
  18. Upon the gracious endorsement of my party leader, I am happy to announce to the city of Roseport that I will be running for Mayor. I would like to ask for your support in my undertaking. In the coming weeks, the city of Roseport will once again step up to the task of choosing a leader to guide it through the next month. As a citizen of Roseport, I want what is best for this great city and to see us grow and prosper. Most importantly, we need someone who will exhibit leadership and fortitude to rise above petty partisan bickering and position Roseport to take the mantle as the rising star city it is. I have spent a lot of time in this town, walking its streets and talking to its people. I know that many of you feel as I do--that beneath our feet lies a well of untapped potential. It's a potential that can be harnessed only with the reins of dedicated leadership and visionary talent. I say this because I have that leadership and talent. Many times I have found myself disappointed by our absentee leadership. I have waited for those who say they know what is best for Roseport to stand up and take the initiative. We haven't received a city update since April and our current mayor seems to have not been active in almost a week. If you should entrust me with the great responsibility of strengthening our community I pledge to set up a newspaper that will give weekly updates on the political, economic and social updates of Roseport. I will work closely with newly elected party leaders such as Immunogenic who will support my visions and ensure that we always have the resources we need to better this city. We can reduce the ridiculously high unemployment levels we have. We can bring in a hospital to make sure our brave soldiers and citizens have the care and treatment they deserve. It is my sincere hope that you will consider me for your Mayor. I will break my back to do everything I can for Roseport and for you. Thank you.

  20. Roman Catholic Party

    The Roman Catholic Party Enough with the immoral politicians attempting to be Governor. Announcing the campaign for the Roman Catholic Party in identity. The Roman Catholic Party has yet to choose it's candidate but it will soon be decided. I will be updating this post with our promises and believes as a party. We will generally be following the Catholic doctrine so most of the parties believes are already public. Keep an eye on this post as we post main issues our are believes and announce our candidate. Major Political Issues Gun Control The Roman Catholic Party holds a firm Pro-Gun position. We will have very limited regulations on firearms. We believe in the policy of more guns less crime. Gay Marriage The Roman Catholic Party currently stands against gay marriage. However, any relationship below marriage will be acceptable. As the times change are policy very well might also. Religion Being a Catholic party we will obviously promote Catholicism. All other religions will be accepted and allowed to worship freely within their Churches, Temples, Etc. I am debating on whether fund Catholic churches but at the moment no religion will receive government funding. We will strongly encourage citizens to attend weekly services through radio, TV, and online ads. Terrorism The Roman Catholic Party acknowledges the threat of Islamic Terrorism. We will not be limiting Muslims right to worship but police will be giving extra funding and equipment to deal with the threat. Muslims may be subject to searches if suspected of suspicious activity but will not have there homes searched unless a warrant is present. Taxes We believe very much in lower taxes. It's much more efficient when money is spent by the workers who earn it. An exact amount is yet to be decided. Healthcare The Roman Catholic Party believes healthcare should be proved privately through the free market. Government funded healthcare will only decrease the quality of care people will receive. Economy Limited government regulations on businesses. We believe citizens should be able to start and grow there own business and buy and sell among themselves without the burden of the government regulating them. We will fully support a free market system as it will help economic growth. Abortion We will always be Pro-life. The Roman Catholic Party believes in life at fertilization. There will be no government funded abortions and privately done abortions will be illegal. Immigration The Roman Catholic Part fully supports and encourages immigration. However, all immigrants who arrive illegal will be immediately deported. There will be no exceptions and none will be allowed to stay. Police The Roman Catholic will fully support all law enforcement and provide them with the funding they need to operate. But, any police officer convicted of killing an innocent man/women who caused no immediate danger to them will be immediately fired and face the court to be prosecuted. Death Penalty Similar to abortion we hold a pro-life policy on the Death Penalty. However, anyone who commits a major attack on such as a shooting or bombing will rightfully be met by the electric chair. Please leave comments suggesting any other topics we should post stances for Papacy (Governor) The Roman Catholic Party has yet to decide on a candidate to fully represent us in the first election. They will soon be announced so stay tuned. Please message me on the Discord for an invite to our parties private discord.
  21. Political summary.

    Hello! I'm in no way intending to become a politician in this game, but I thought that this kind of subject should be "vulgarized" in order for a wider audience to be able to take part in the debates and to vote accordingly... This is why I created this topic, where every person running for governorship can post a brief summary of their political program and ideals, for the less politically interested people (such as me) to be able to have a quick overview of every party's ideas and projects. This could be a stupid idea, but I think it'd be quite convenient to have a place where you can get in touch with those subjects without having to go through those pages-long topics about each party. Also, I don't want this to be a discussion place, but just something such as a wall where you can hang your political projects and ideas. That being said, I can't wait to read @LuciousTimes' and @GeneSmith's posts here!

  23. A place to get to know other Officers

    I think all of the police officers should start communicating. Maybe weekly meetings to discuss issues that may arise while on duty. This thread should be a place where we all get to know each other and actually build a police force. The more we know each other, the more we'll be able to stomp out corruption and most importantly, keep the citizens safe. If you believe in taking this role seriously and you really want to see an actual police unit then just drop a line here and let's get to know each other.
