History

Seculartopia was founded in 1927, by Dictator-President Vatsisov. Originally a small city of 1 million, Seculartopia hit its first growth spurt in 1945, when the population rose to 5 million, later in 1972 rising to around 10.2 million. In 1981, The Dictator-President at the time, Numertiy was shot, and according to witnesses, had died. Drake Virnov, a 16 year old, was chosen by the Cabinet in place of Numertiy, because Numertiy was ruled a tyrant and unworthy of choosing a successor. Virnov rules to this day, in fact, most of the intresting history has happened since Virnov took office in 1981. The Nuclear Civil War, which involved a civil war between Numertiy's party, the exiled Conservatives, and the Socialist authority in Seculartopia. The Seculartopians won, but at a cost- Sagan, a city taken over by the Conservatives was nuked, Darwin and the Capital completely devastated, causing disgust in the public eye. Virnov a year ago proclaimed Seculartopia a Communist state, causing a conflict between it and Greater Vancoova, which is still being fought to this day. Following the decision by Virnov, his popularity surged, and Seculartopia had apparently entered its "Golden Age". Currently the capital has been bombed and devastated once again from the onslaught of war.

Government Structure

The Government of Seculartopia is what is considered "Secular Communist". The Dictator-President is head of state and of government affairs. He chooses a member from each party for his Cabinet each time one member is needed, and based on the citizen memberships in each party, (The Socialist,Communist and Secular parties) The appropriate Cabinet Member is put in power. Each Party has a debating power n the Cabinet, represented by a percentage. The Cabinet is presented with an idea validated by the Dictator-President or Director of Internal Affairs, and debates the idea, taking a vote when the allotted debating time (extension can be made/requested). The Dictator-President at the end of the session (when he is convinced of a majority) he enacts or rejects a law officially (Announces the vote). According to a new law, a session must take place, and needs to last at least 15 minutes. it is The goal of the citizens to join parties they agree with, thus increasing the chances of that party getting an increase in debating power.

The main stance of the government, as defined by Vatsisov, is to "provide for the people healthcare,insurance,proper housing,food, and a sufficient source of income, while staying out of their civil and political rights."

In the justice system, the court is presided by a Cabinet Member. Both parties are unrepresented, and speak for themselves. The cabinet member makes a final decision. Any other Cabinet Member or the Dictator-President can overrule the decision, only the Dictator-President can make a final, unmoderated call.

Your economy obviously stinks ($10,00 GDP/C, 17% unemployment) so why is your currency so powerful?

Why is the government TLD .org?

Seculartopia, when your economy is weak usually your currency is weak as well unless there's some sort of standard. I'm not an economist, but I would say that a $10k GDPPC would give you an exchange rate of around 6sg = $1, not the other way around.

Quick math lesson: $4 > $2. So, making your currency worth $4 instead of $2 is even more unrealistic and wanky. As Stok said, the other way 'round is much more accurate.

Also, even though governments are non-profits, they still use the .gov TLD.
