[#4888]
To help out our Huntington mappers, we need to determine the general structure of the FSA government. Specifically, we need to determine the following:
  • Number of houses in the legislature and their name(s)
  • Name of the building where the legislative branch meets
  • Title of the chief executive (President, Prime Minister, etc.)
  • Name of the building where the chief executive lives
  • Name of the high court
  • Structure of the lower courts (which also will have regional branches throughout the nation)
Some suggestions have already been posted here, but more input and suggestions are needed.

Is this going to go to an FSA-wide vote? Or are only the Huntington contributors going to decide on this?

All the FSA mappers have a say in this, but the decision will ultimately help the Huntington mappers map the city.

Some name ideas for bureaucratic agencies in the FSA government:

FSA Departments/Agencies = RL Equivalent

National Tax Office = IRS

Department of Utilities = (somewhat) Dept. of Energy, oversees nation's power grid, water systems, and Internet connectivity (if the FSA declares Internet a public utility), phone/mobile connectivity may be included as well

Cyber Defense Agency = Monitors for and defends against Cyber Attacks upon the FSA and key pieces of infrastructure

Department of National Security = Dept. of Defense + Dept. of Homeland Security

Investigations and Intelligence Bureau = FBI/CIA

What can I imagine under "IRS"? (irregulair robber service?)

haha, you're not far off. The IRS is the Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. agency that collects income taxes from citizens.

Other possible departments:

Department of Education (kind of difficult to say this another way) Department of the Environment = EPA

Department of Finance and Budget = Treasury

Department of Policy and Management = GSA/Government Services Agency

Department of Foreign Affairs = Department of State

Department of Farming and Agriculture = Department of Agriculture

Department of Trade = Department of Commerce

We also don't have to use "Department," we could instead use "Secretariat," "Ministry," "Bureau," or "Agency." Or we could mix and match! The government would have evolved over several hundred years, so different naming conventions might be active at different times.

Dept. of Farming and Agriculture sounds a bit redundant. Maybe the Department of Agriculture, Food, and Medicine?

Or Agriculture, Enviroment Protection, Food and Drugs (as a new "superdepartemen"). "Departement" (as bureaucratic french orign word) is not my favorite, as Whateversusan wrote: Ministry or Bureau (has some nostalgic flair).

I like the idea of a superdepartment--AEFD!

We also have to remember that there are numerous sub-departments or sub-agencies under each larger agency. Homeland Security (I hate that name, I blame my state's old senator for it) in the USA has the Department of Defense, which has the Department of the Army, the Department of the Navy, and so on under it.

Please do consider locating an agency or two outside the city proper. This happens often when agencies run out of space in the city, they build a new headquarters in the suburbs. The Pentagon (Department of Defense) in the USA is located across the Potomac River in Virginia, for instance. The FBI wanted to build a new building near there, I believe.

“Ministry” isn’t used at all in the U.S., for whatever reason. A true bureaucracy has plenty of layers, so we should have nested agencies as well (e.g., the Office of Transit and Transportation is in the Division of Transportation in the Bureau of Commerce).
