NS Parliament Life Outside [IC]

Welcome to the Parliament of Saint Hilda!

What is this?
This is a character-driven RP in which we roleplay as politicians in a fictional nation. This RP, now the NS Parliament, has origins in the former NSG Senate. We have two simple starting guidelines:

    1. We are the island nation of Saint Hilda, located in the northern Lesser Antilles near Guadeloupe.
    2. A parliamentary system of government is being established, taken from Sweden, from which we just gained independence and with which we share a monarch.
The rest is up to the players! In this RP, we will legislate and politick, ally and backstab, and so much more! It is your choice what your character will be. Prominent and outspoken? Shady and quiet? Progressive? Conservative? Fascist? Communist? Centrist? Government? Opposition? Crossbencher? Journalist? Activist? The list goes on!

As soon as you submit you application, unless rejected, you become a Member of the (imaginary) Parliament of Saint Hilda (or Sankta Hilda in Swedish). You can then feel free to begin participating in the RP. You can do things like drafting a bill, voting on bills, and joining or creating a political party.

Where does it all go on?
We have four threads. There's this one, for applications, creating/joining parties, and all OOC discussion about our RP. There's the Chamber, where bills are debated, amended and voted upon. There's the Office, where bills are presented, discussed before they reach the Chamber, and kept before and after going to the Chamber. There's Life Outside, where all RP that happens outside the Chamber (campaigning, news stories, daily life, etc) goes on. Finally, if you want to flesh out your characters, use our Character Database in Forum 7. Any other threads that may be created also go in Forum 7. Our official Discord server can be found here.

Parliament OOC/Apps
As the name suggests, for applications, bill drafting, and OOC discussion.
Parliament Chamber
For debating, voting, and amending bills. Strictly IC.
Parliament Office (Archived)
This thread has since been locked, but it contains old bill drafts.
Life Outside (You are here)
For all RP outside the Chamber, from a walk in a park to a bomb planted in a restaurant. Strictly IC.
Character Database
For cataloguing all characters, from politicians to companies to pets. Mostly IC.

Who's in charge?
Our administrators run the RP and their decisions are final.
We don't have strict rules, other than that godmodding is prohibited and our admins are fully in charge.
In the case of rule violations or unacceptable conduct, the offender will be warned. After two admin warnings within a month, disciplinary actions may escalate to a suspension or eventually a ban.

How do I get started?

The so-called "Legislative Bill 88" is a ridiculous, racist, anti-Semitic, anti-Black, anti-reason farce and I refuse to associate with any individual, party, or organisation who supports it or it's vile, scummy fuckwit of an author. This is not your country.

I call on all people from the left and right wings of this nation's Parliament to condone this vile bill and make sure it never sees anything even close to passing. Also, I believe various fast food outlets in the country are selling milkshakes. #JustSaying

.@Lancelot I think you'll find it's actually extremely easy to be a politician without being rude and making ad hominem remarks not grounded in facts... Should know, been here for 10 years.

As Lance stepped out of the Chamber, he laughed and shook his head, closing the door behind him. What a silly way to start the fist argument in the Chamber.

He looked up at the sky, wondering what was in store for Miss Viktoria. After a moment, he turned and glanced down the street, wandering around until he found a small restraunt. He stepped in, ordered a glass of wine, and waited for a moment before it was delivered.

He took a sip, considering his colleagues. Viktoria did not take kindly to insults, sarcasm, and a little bit of fun. Seč, conversely, seemed near pacifist in his approach to politics. Easy to break, then. Robin seemed like somebody Lance could get along with, though the two hadn't discussed much.

It took a couple moments for Lance to realize he was trying to take a sip out of an empty glass. He laughed at himself.

Lance laughed at everything. He laughed at other people, he laughed at himself. He knew that positivity was the only way to keep one's mind sharp in the cold arenas of business and politics.

They were quite similar, in essence. Both were built on connections, deals, and betrayals. Yes, betrayals. Lance had long understood that betrayal was fundamental if one held ambition. One couldn't become King without killing their opponents.

Lance signed a check and left a large tip in payment, before walking outside. He sat on a park bench, staring at a small bird that fluttered about across the street.

I concur with @ViktoriaSLP, "Legislative Bill 88" is abhorrent and incompatible with a free society.

The merger of the AAP with the CPC to form the CPC-AAP is great news for farmers across St Hilda. We have the balance of power in the Parliament, and we will represent YOU!

My fellow constituents, it's a great day to serve here and as your MP I will make sure taxes are low on investments, improve our schools and cut regulations to better the economy. Be sure to check my website for more info on what I hope to accomplish. #AlastarMP #NPP

Education is the single most important thing for this island. We should use the natural beauty we have at every opportunity. Natural schooling increases self-reliance, self-esteem, communication skills, and fine/gross ability. Let's work for a school system that makes this a priority just as much learning you letters and numbers #NatureEducation

@AKE_MP While I would love to put nature into education, we must have a comprehensive education system first to make that work. Our party has worked hard towards this goal, especially @SečforThePeople, who has authored the Universal Basic Education Act (UBEA). That must be our first step. #UBEA
