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.

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.
