a) How many sponsors before we can submit a bill? Five as usual? Or fewer because we're getting off the ground?
b) Where should we submit bills once we get those sponsors?

Hello, Ainin! I have a few questions:
  • Would it be possible to put Elizia into a Wikipedia-style world map?
  • Will we revert to the flag of the Federal Republic?
  • Do you plan on making a coat of arms or state emblem of some sort?
  • What Inkscape font did you use for the Chinese Interests Party logo?

1. I will do it after I get home from Thailand, which will be around July 1st.
2. Up to the Senate, although it would be weird. It'd be the equivalent of the FRG keeping the flag of Nazi Germany...
3. Maybe, if no one else does it.
4. Montserrat, it's a Google font.

Very well. Incidentally, I was reading through your Google document on Elizia and was surprised to see the Christians did not have a category for themselves in the religious distribution (presumably, the vast majority of the 3,3 per cent of “others” are Christian). Isn’t this rather odd? The Christian minority in Malaysia, for example, makes up 9,2 per cent of the population; in Vietnam, 8,2 per cent; in Singapore, where the majority of Christians are Chinese Singaporeans, they reach 18,8 per cent of the national population and by now it is apparent that Elizia is, in some respects, merely a larger, dirtier and poorer Singapore. A quick read through the character database will reveal the Christians are over-represented in Parliament and circles of notoriety. Ergo, it would be reasonable, in my view, to slightly reduce all camps to give the Christians a minority of around 6-7 per cent.

Just an unassuming idea . . .

I have another unassuming idea, my friends. Why don’t we refer to our unicameral legislature as the Elizian Senate and to our parliamentarians as senators? Nothing of substance would change, of course; we would not adopt an American-style structure of government, but we would at last honour the name of the NSG Senate. Perhaps we could argue that the terms “parliament” and “MP(s)” have been soiled by the defunct Federal Republic’s use of them for its puppet institutions.

I like this idea. We've had too many unicameral systems. Lt's spice it up.

We don't have enough people for anything other than a unicameral system.

I’m not proposing we get rid of the unicameral legislature; I am simply suggesting we use the term “senate” instead of “parliament” to refer to it ICly.

Well, everyone seems to have taken to calling themselves senators anyway, so why not?

Here is a suggestion, I made it quite quickly and I've tested it out, it seems to work very reliably. I should be able to answer any "But why..."s, "What if..."s and "How come..."s, and every question you could have about the suggestion. I've done this before in Calaverde and to a more private extent in Dagmar but I'd prefer if everyone could see what I'm doing and why I'm doing it. Hopefully the GDoc makes it as clear as possible.
