[INDEX] A nation's Ministers/Secretaries according to Issues

Postby Drachmaland » Tue Feb 16, 2016 3:42 pm

(Numbers nnn indicate Issue #nnn, xxx.y the y-th option of Issue #xxx, xxx.y/z the y-th and z-th options of Issue #xxx.
Some of the “Secretary of X” are the result of “Department of X” being stated in the respective Issues.

Aww, I could have saved you some trouble.

Here's my version. This is from searching the spoiler list for the word "minister", and includes only titles specifically including the word "minister", not other government positions.

It's not hugely useful, since they're not kept consistent from issue to issue. Titles of obviously-equivalent ministries see minor variations from issue to issue, usually boringly generic, while the jokes are better off not being reused (instead, come up with your own). I mostly just did it to track the more humorous ones (of which you missed at least one).




#011 1. High Minister of Finance, who also happens to be your brother
#021 3. Police Minister

#475 2. Internal Minister
#476 4. Minister for Democratic Reform
#480 2. Environmental Minister
#485 4. retired Defense Minister
#486 4. Minister of Alternative Solutions

What I learned from this is that ministers like third options for some reason - well, they used to, they started to diversify after a while, though 3rd options are still in the lead.

(26 in first options, 27 in second options, 34 in third options, 13 in fourth options, 8 in fifth options.)

Omitted [An International Incident] ministers (many of which appear multiple times):
#389 1. Minister for Foreign Affairs

#390 1. Minister for Defence
#390 2. Foreign Minister

#392 1. Trade Minister
#395 1. Foreign Minister
#395 2. Treasury Minister

I love how the variations occur among the issues, actually. It just seems to me that it adds a level of, I dunno, historical feel. Like how the issues evolve through the ages.

This list just feels so NS-esque to me. I love it. Good work Drachmaland and Trotterdam!

Except that not really, as the options are mutually exclusive. If you have immigration, it's an Immigration Minister. If you don't, its a Border Controls Minister.

Probably not. We're discussing it backstage, but there's a balance to be struck between not filling the front page with stickies, and having easy access to useful indices.

Maybe links from the How To Write thread would work?

The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding
