Collab:Federal States/Government

From OpenGeofiction
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The government of the Federal States consists of three co-equal branches: a legislature (passes laws), an executive (enforces laws), and a judicial (interprets/clarifies laws). The names and structures of these three branches of government are important as they may affect how areas of the FSA get mapped (e.g., whether there are one or two houses of the legislature, whether there's a single President of the FSA or a President and a Prime Minister, etc.) and will provide an official list of FSA chief executives that can be used to name streets, parks, schools, towns, etc. throughout the nation.

Executive

Previous Executives

After discussions with the FSA community, the list of past executives of the Federal States will be assembled as follows:

  1. Each current mapper in the FSA community is permitted to add one (1) name to the below list. (This list was relocated from Collab:Federal States/Important persons.) Additionally, please place an "X" in the column of the time period you'd like to submit for.
  2. Once the list has 25 names, we will discuss and determine the order of the executives prior to 1900, which we anticipate to include 20-25 names. The precise dates of each executive's time in office will not be decided at this time. During this conversation, the title of the head of state will also be chosen (see next section). Now that the list has at least 25 names, we will finalize the list on or after 15 Dec 2020. FSA stateowners who have not yet submitted a name are encouraged to continue doing so until that date. At that time, we will have a weeklong vote to help determine the order of the pre-1900 executives as well as officially name the position's title.
  3. Once the list of pre-1900 executives has been finalized, the list will be posted here and on the in-world Federal States wiki article for use by the community.
  4. Thereafter, every new FSA state owner will be allowed to add the next executive to the list, provided the rest of the FSA community agrees that the name is suitable and realistic.
  5. Each post-1900 quarter-century has a maximum of five executives. If a current mapper defers their selection to a post-1900 quarter-century, they will be able to determine the precise order of their entry in the official canon once that quarter-century fills. (If a mapper is no longer active when that quarter-century fills, their entry will automatically become the third entry out of the five slots.)

This list was moved from Collab:Federal States/Important persons and based on the existing claimed names. FSA members are welcome to edit existing entries and add new names if they have not done so yet.

Parties

In an effort to allow each state more freedom to determine their own local politics -- and to avoid potential issues of national-level overwikification -- it is proposed to avoid having national political parties in favor of five standing "coalitions": far left, center-left, center-right, far right, and unaligned/independent. ("Unaligned/Independent" would likely be used as an identifier of a party that does not correspond to the traditional political spectrum rather than an actual unified fifth coalition.) Each state party would be encouraged to be part of one of these coalitions. This proposal is not finalized and FSA stateowners are encouraged to discuss on the talk page.
