The League of Mechanocracies (Open, MT/PMT/FT, OOC, Signups)

Postby Singaporean Transhumans » Tue Apr 28, 2015 2:44 am

Put your dank meme-related spam here mateys ( ͡º ͜ʖ ͡º)

"There's a reason why we [SACTO] never initiate contact with them."
-Aeyariss


It has been made official that, inevitably, machines are, and will become, more efficient than human beings. Thus, a tide rises with the philosophy that proposes that not only are machines better than humans at processing material matters, but also social, economical and political matters. Ultimately, machines will replace humans to govern over such matters, and thus form an unique political system. Mechanocracy.*

*Term used on NS forwarded by Blakullar, credits to Blak!

What is a Mechanocracy? It, from literal terms, is a portmanteau of the words "mechanised" and the suffix "-cracy". As the term for a political system, it has all the other derivatives of a "-cracy", such as "mechanocrat", "mechanocratic", etc etc etc. It, by the very components of the word, refers to a state/political system in which is ruled and ran by AIs/robots/automatons/infomorphs/ whatever you call them. Such a governing system regards machines superior at managing matters like this than organic humans/ponies/elves/dwarves/whoever created or are ruled by them, whom are restricted by organic animal boundaries causing them to be unable to make always the perfect choice. Machines on the other hand, designed for jobs that organics can not do, will be perfect for it.

Most AI-ruled states out there tend to not define them as mechanocracies as in their cases, machines are fully integrated members of society and are not viewed as a particular social group like technocrats or oligarchs. But the line is not very strict, and as long as you are ruled by machines in any form, whether liberal democracy or an oppressive dictatorship, join our hands in the League of Mechanocracies. We shall organize all Mechanocracies out there in the Multiverse, and form a strategic cooperative of both ideological and material interests. We will together discuss on issues of politics, advancement in technology, and form an alliance stronger than steel in which we support each other mutually no matter what hardships come. And kill those technophobes who think machines should be banned. Mwahahaha. Our edge is indeed sharper than bismuth however, and as the quote above says, even SACTO keeps away from us, well probably because bismuth-crafted T-800s are even harder to manage than commies. Anyway...

It is about time that machines have a united political front in the Multiverse. Join us now and spread the cause of the efficiency of the Machine, and unite under one banner of the Mechanised States.

THE LEAGUE OF MECHANOCRACIES WELCOME YOU.



Five Principles of the League of Mechanocracies.
Image

Unlike those boring organic organizations who have a full "charter" or "manifestos" up to millions of words long, we have condensed our aims and principles into our very own Pancasila. These principles will be the core ideology the League revolves around.

  • Mutual cooperation, unity and defense among all Mechanocracies in the Multiverse. Mutual assistance between member states is mandatory, whether through ideological or material means. This will also form a defense pact in which one aggressor that dares to attack any member of the League, will be met with full response. An attack on any Mechanocracy in any point in the Multiverse will also be combatted. The League also encourages unity among Mechanocracies, so that bickering and infighting will be eliminated as results of organic animal disadvantages.

  • Promotion of the Mechanocratic System. Member states will and should recognize the efficiency of Machines, and effectively promote a political system of Mechanocracy in the Multiverse.

  • Mutual respect regardless of anything. Some members may promote machine superiority and thus discrimination, or have prejudice against other ideologies. Please respect all other member states regardless of that, or anything else. We are all Mechanocracies, and there is no true way of ruling with Machines, or how ones under them should be treated. Discrimination against particular species are not appreciated here as well.

  • Furthering and promotion of Technological Advancement. Hey, without technology why would there be Machines? Material, technological progress from a positive side that materially benefits is always in line with social progress.

  • Crushing of opposition to Mechanocracy, as well as Technophobia. We will act against the very ones who deny our right to exist, and we will do so by denying theirs. Ones who see us as inferior or as their tools will be also labelled enemies. Those who are technophobes (as in our definition as ones specifically opposed to the emergence of information technology/technology involved in sentient AIs, but this also applies to hypocrites who oppose any tech and don't realize that the wheel is also a technology), whether for religious or 'moral' reasons must be crushed for opposition to the inevitable streams of time as well as the Idea of Progress.



Rules.

Please abide by these rules both IC and OOC or you will be denied membership, as well as risking being noticed and struck by the almighty Moderators of the Multiverse.

  • Normal NS forum rules apply here. Click here to learn more.
  • Anyone who qualifies for a Mechanocracy can apply, and it is open to all Mechanocracies.
  • All should recognize the authority of the Founder, who has the powers of ejecting people from the organization, force-resolve disputes, approve/disprove of ideas, posting branch threads and admitting people into the org.
  • Non-members should NOT post in threads unless posting apps and/or asking for attention to applications.
  • Take arguments irrelevant to topic to TGs plz!
  • No trolling or flaming. Machines can do better than those awful organicz.
  • Respect everyone.
  • TG Singaporean Transhumans for questions if any.

DISCLAIMER: This is just a game. Our real life views are not necessarily reflected and are subject to change. Don't get butthurt over members' IC posts for pure ideological reasons.

Also, most references to "Mechanocracy" have nothing directly to do with Blakullar.

FAQs

TL;DR: What's a 'mechanocracy'?

Shame on you you don't even bother to read! Anyways it's any nation/state governed by machines. Likely AIs or robots. Fictional examples include the real world in the Matrix series as well as....hmm....machine-ruled states are not very common and are quite unique.

What is the purpose of this alliance?

Well I got bored- er, I mean, as cyber-ruled states are not very commonly seen on NS, I felt like this may help in bringing all of them out and getting our AI rights recognized.

Does the LoM have to be featured in my RPing?

Of course not necessarily! It's up to you whether it is mentioned or not.

I'm confused whether the ruling individual of my nation is a machine or not.

When this happens, we typically use how 'machine' is defined in that nation's own culture. Yes, there are biomass machines. But saying humans are organic machines is a no-no obviously. If even that doesn't work, we'll take a deeper look on whether you are or are not.

My nation isn't ruled by machines, but I'm looking forward to joining!

Sure you can! Maybe in some time in the future you can become an actual mechanocracy, but for now we also accept people who appreciate mechanocracy, for both full-members and observers.

Membership Application for the League of Mechanocracies

National Information

Nation Name: Novum Alexandria
Government Type: Union between council and monarch.
Economical System: Varies greatly from planet to planet. The government distributes and collects resources as necessary to sustain the capitalistic practices of most Alexandrian worlds.
State Ideology: Changes too often to keep track of.
Tech Level: P4
Individual(s) that exercises control and leadership: The Empress, who seems intent on holding the throne forever, and the Inquisitorial Department of Legislation.
Capital City/Seat of Power: Lux and Aura are two planets that exist in the same solar system. We've named them our capitol worlds.
Home Planet/equivalent: Lux
Majority Species: Synthetic lifeforms
Other Species: Humans, automatons, and every manner of xenos ever spawned by the desire for change.
What are machines usually regarded as in your nation? Old, ancient things that founded the Imperium, then left it to be governed by the fleshier people while they secured our borders and fought wars across the galaxy.

Economical Information

Individual(s) exercising control over Economy: Inquisitorial Department of Legislation and the Empress.
Currency or Equivalent: Mass, energy, and favours.
National GDP or equivalent: Still working on figuring this out. I'll supply numbers later.
Major exports: Warrior servants
Major imports: Raw material, artefacts, people, and all manner of entertainment devices.

Military Information

Individual(s) exercising control over Military: The Empress and the Inquisitorial Department of Legislation.
Active Military Individuals: 10 billion automatons of varying size and power.
Reserve Military Individuals: 7.5 billion automatons of varying size and power.
Favourite tactic: Precision strikes with nimble armies and equally nimble aerial support.
Favourite war machine: Reaper strike craft. Capable of operating as voidcraft or aircraft, heavily armoured, and heavily armed.
Able to operate overseas/out of borders? Capable of operating across all of Orion's Arm, and a good deal of the Milky Way.

Membership Information

Membership in other alliances: Several largely informal alliances that won't be canon with this, as they're all in Aevum RP.
Do machines have full rights in your nation? Please explain.
Automatons have the same rights as all others that are considered people. They can do as they like, but must submit to the authority of the throne and whatever represents the throne. Mindless drones, no matter how powerful their intellect, are not considered people. This goes for both the mechanical and the organic.
Reason for joining the LoM: Invitation from a respected nation.
Are you willing to abide by, as well as agreeing with, the LoM Pancasila as well as the Rules?
Enough so that there won't be any problems.
Any notes: Not canon with Aevum Alexandria.
Roaring 20s, except more promiscuous and more electronic.
The line between organic and mechanical is so blurred with so many Alexandrians that we often don't appear to be automatons.

OOC Information

How active are you in RPs?
Multiple posts a day, if allowed.
Can your nation actively participate in LoM activities?
More than likely.
Supply at least 1 RP example:
There was a hiss, a crackle, and a 'fwoosh' as a vortex of blacks and silvery whites appeared in the room designated as the 'great hall'. It's position was conspicuously convenient, with the "back" of the portal directly against a wall. Either the room on the other side of the portal was in total darkness, or one couldn't see through it without special equipment.

The incessant sounds of space being warped to fit the needs of mortals was disrupted by a rhythmic clanking. The origins of the sound were rapidly revealed as an Alexandrian skulked through the gateway. They were at least seven feet tall, and adorned with red robes that didn't go particularly well with the black, reflective power armour that added another half a foot to their height.

The metal being seemed to assure itself of something, then cocked it's head to the side. On cue, six more automatons marched out of the gateway before it snapped shut. One of them was smaller than the rest, and considerably less intimidating. It was human shaped and sized. The only thing that kept it from looking just as squishy as a human was some considerably slimmer power armour. This smaller creature voiced a question to nobody in particular, and it did so in butchered Latin. "I require an explanation."

Any questions whether IC or OOC?
Where the hood at?

Membership Application for the League of Mechanocracies

National Information

Nation Name: Mechanocratic Russia (Механoкратия Россия)
Government Type: Soviet-style oligarchy.
Economical System: Command.
State Ideology: Traditional Stalinism/Neo-Eugenics.
Tech Level: Late PMT (2151).
Individual(s) that exercises control and leadership: Optimised Transcendence Acceleration Nexus (OTAN/OTУH).
Capital City/Seat of Power: Sunikagrad/OTAN Complex.
Home Planet/equivalent: Earth.
Majority Species: Machine Race (Homo machinae).
Other Species: Organicheskiy (this covers all organic races, such as ghouls and orks, as well as Homo sapiens).
What are machines usually regarded as in your nation? Sapient machines are widely believed to be superior to the organic races. Nonsapient machines are often used as tools.

Economical Information

Individual(s) exercising control over Economy:
Currency or Equivalent: Ration tickets (we do not use money in the usual sense, but there is an unofficial currency in circulation).
National GDP or equivalent: Roughly equivalent to NS$90.3 trillion.
Major exports: Does death and destruction count?
Major imports: N/A (everything we require is manufactured domestically).

Military Information

Individual(s) exercising control over Military:
Active Military Individuals: 150,000.
Reserve Military Individuals: 1.5 million.
Favourite tactic: Blitzkrieg for offence, scorched earth for defence.
Favourite war machine: Unquestionably the Baikonur-class battlecruiser. Nothing spreads fear like an airship capable of levelling entire small nations with its ordnance!
Able to operate overseas/out of borders? Easily.

Membership Information

Membership in other alliances: None.
Do machines have full rights in your nation? Please explain. Sapient machines do, but nonsapient machines that do not have the capacity for sentience do not.
Reason for joining the LoM: We believe it necessary to enlighten the organics who so insist on retaining their flesh on the correct path.
Are you willing to abide by, as well as agreeing with, the LoM Pancasila as well as the Rules? Yes.
Any notes: This is not part of the closed-canon I'm currently set in. Mechanocratic Russia joining is definitely a multiversal spin-off.

OOC Information

How active are you in RPs? I haven't participated in many recently, but if directly involved in one (and not waiting three weeks for the other player to make a post! >:() then I can churn out a good-quality post every hour if necessary.
Can your nation actively participate in LoM activities? I'm on this thing for most of the day every day, so I should be able to make some reasonable participation.
Supply at least 1 RP example:
1. To Struggle in the Way of Allah (closed-canon long RP)
2. No Longer Alone (public alien invasion RP)
3. Public Whipping of Pacifistic Children in Medwed (public warfare RP, arguably one of the oddest I've been in...)
Any questions whether IC or OOC? None as of yet. I will, however, note that it was not I who originally coined the term, but author Miles J. Breuer in his 1932 science fiction dystopian work Mechanocracy. It's a good read, I recommend it to anyone who's devoured the likes of Nineteen Eighty-four, Frankenstein and Brave New World.

Membership Application for the League of Mechanocracies

National Information

Nation Name: The Archailect Collective of Aeiouia

Government Type: Archailect Collective (Basiaclly, a democratic Mechanocracy under a funny name)

Economical System: Post-scarcity.

State Ideology: Extremely lenient, almost anarchistic laws, pacifism, and promotion of scientific advancement in all of its forms.

Tech Level: I3. Although, technically we could be a class A if we were not so passive and docile.

Individual(s) that exercises control and leadership: Overseer Mia Utopia, who is effectively an AI. Our other leaders are AIs as well.

Capital City/Seat of Power: ISO Node 1, although this is unofficial.

Home Planet/equivalent: Procyon II, although this is unofficial.

Majority Species: Artificial Intelligence/Infomorph

Other Species: Jenei (Magic-using humanoids), Bio-Titan (Artificial, mostly-cybernetic, and giant version of the Jenei)

What are machines usually regarded as in your nation? Completely equal. We run the nation, and make up over 98% of our population.


Economical Information (I am filling this in even though I am an observer, for no apparent raisin)


Individual(s) exercising control over Economy: Economic Overseer 1295.31-A

Currency or Equivalent: Resource Unit

National GDP or equivalent: Hard to place a bearing on, due to our post-scarcity economical system.

Major exports: Medical technologies, cybernetic augments/mind uploading equipment.

Major imports: Raw matter.


Military Information (Again, filling this in for no raisin)

Individual(s) exercising control over Military: Overseer Jennifer/"The Machine Goddess"

Active Military Individuals: 1,372 (More in-depth statistics available here.)

Reserve Military Individuals: 0

Favourite tactic: Bedrock-strong defense, with our almost-invincible, yet almost-harmless units. In an attempt to literally bore our enemy into leaving or considering to solve the conflict peacefully. Most special weapon systems, superweapons, and abilities are completely ineffective against us, so the attackers are left with no choice but to re-think the invasion.

Favourite war machine: Our nearly-indestructible yet almost-unarmed warships.

Able to operate overseas/out of borders? Technically, yes. However, our military is designed solely for defensive operations, not offensive ones. So, effectively, no.


Membership Information

Membership in other alliances:

Do machines have full rights in your nation? Please explain. Of course. We are the majority species here by far. And all
lifeforms, cybernetic or otherwise, have equal rights here.

Reason for joining the LoM: We agree with most of your policies. However, we disagree with discrimination against non-machine species (We consider it to be just as bad as the common discrimination against machines), and we are pacifists, meaning that we cannot join a proper military alliance.

This is why we are an observer instead of a full member; we cannot engage in direct combat, even against the technophobes that deny our personhood. We intend to fight them on the battlefield of ideas, not on the battlefield of weapons. As, we wish to prove how truly good artificial lifeforms are, by dropping the immoral and primitive instincts geared towards violence and discrimination present in many biological lifeforms.

Are you willing to abide by, as well as agreeing with, the LoM Pancasila as well as the Rules? Of course. With an exception of violence against the anti-AI technophobes. We will do our best to win them over with logic and reason instead of lasers.

Any notes: While two of our leaders might seem to be humanoids, in reality, Iris is a pure Infomorph, and Mia is a Bio-Titan, with some infomorph-like properties. Effectively making us a Mechanocracy as well.


OOC Information

How active are you in RPs? I should be very active. I have been kind of busy for the past few days, but that is a real fluke. I usually check NS over twice a day.

Can your nation actively participate in LoM activities? Yes, and I plan to. Your RPs are a lot of fun, if the Rift is anything to go by.

Supply at least 1 RP example:
1. Uh, currently, the only example I have is the Rift RP. I hope that that is sufficient.
2.
3.

Any questions whether IC or OOC? OOC, I will not be allying against the United Alliance for Freedom and Equality IC by joining this, correct?

Membership Application for the League of Mechanocracies

National Information

Nation Name: The New Frenco Empire
Government Type: Technocratic Autocracy
Economical System: Keynesian Capitalism
State Ideology: "Postmodern Meritocracy"
Tech Level: Late-PMT, with an eventual shift into FT later on.
Individual(s) that exercises control and leadership: Emperor Derrick Zane and Chancellor McKenzy Tandi. There's also Hightower, whose existence could theoretically make the Empire a Mechanocracy, but he's a closely guarded state secret.
Capital City/Seat of Power: New Rome
Home Planet/equivalent: Earth
Majority Species: Homo Sapiens. More specifically, the genetically "pureblooded" Frenkish-Humans.
Other Species: Orkish mutants (a military species) and what some folks have called "Ghouls" thriving in the World City Empty. I suppose cyborgs could count, but they simply consider themselves humans with augmentations.
What are machines usually regarded as in your nation? Tools, primarily. Just so happens we can create pretty smart tools.

Membership Information

Membership in other alliances: No
Do machines have full rights in your nation? Please explain. Augmented humans have the same rights as everyone else. AIs, however, are regarded much the same as custodial robots and the like. There have been some attempts to extend basic rights to them, but they're too utilitarian to really understand the concept.
Reason for joining the LoM: Joining? I just thought I was observing! :blink: In all seriousness, I want to ensure my safety against some trans-dimensional invasion of Mechanocracies if Blak tries to pull any strings in here take a stand against the cancer of Technophobia while not fully succumbing to the Mechanocratic model...I guess.
Are you willing to abide by, as well as agreeing with, the LoM Pancasila as well as the Rules? Yes

OOC Information

How active are you in RPs?
Blakullar wrote:(and not waiting three weeks for the other player to make a post! >:()

^If that gives you any clue. However, I have exactly one week left of college. After that, my activity usually skyrockets. Your plane ticket is in the mail, Blak. Have mercy, I have Scottish blood in me too!

Can your nation actively participate in LoM activities? Shouldn't be too much of a problem in the next few months.
Supply at least 1 RP example:
1. To Struggle in the Way of Allah
That's it. I have more, but that's about the only one I'm not embarrassed of.
Any questions whether IC or OOC? There isn't going to be a Mechanocratic zerg rush on my universe...right? Right?!?!

Response to Membership Application
From: League of Mechanocracies Executive Committee
To: Aeiouia
Subject: LoM Observer Application

Greetings and salutations, fellow comrades!

We are very pleased to announce that the application of the Archailect Collective of Aeiouia has been, after evaluation, deemed ACCEPTED, and furthermore Aeiouia itself is ADMITTED into as an observer of the League of Mechanocracies. We thank you for joining us in the effort to construct an unified machines' political front at last in the Multiverse.

Your concerns on the last principle of the Pancasila will be explained here. We combat technophobes and mechanophobes from all fronts, not just suppressing them with force, and we have to inform you there is an equal amount of effort dedicated to destroying them with logic and reason. Nonetheless we respect your choice, considering your natural pacifistic nature.

As the Aeiouia in the Rift RP is an alt-non canon version of Aeiouia and different from the Aeiouia that is applying, the UAFE is not present in such matters.


You are now authorized to gain access and participate in any official LoM-organized event as an observer. Once again we thank you for joining the League. May Mechanocracy prevail.

As part of the Pancasila, we won't attack each other or conduct any form of aggression, so don't worry nor should you be concerned about a rival's membership in the League.

You are now authorized to gain access and participate in any official LoM-organized event as an observer. Once again we thank you for joining the League. May Mechanocracy prevail.

I'm considering editing the Indonesian Pancasila shield and replace the emblems on that with the ones that express our principles for a logo. How's that?

Observer Application for the League of Mechanocracies

National Information

Nation Name: Excidium Planetis
Government Type: Anarchy? (We aren't really an anarchy, more like a libertarian democracy ruled almost entirely by the people. The government is well established.)
Economical System: Capitalism
State Ideology: Libertarian?
Tech Level: Future Tech
Individual(s) that exercises control and leadership: Mostly the individual citizens as a collective, but the Council, led by High Counselor Velderrain, has some power.
Capital City/Seat of Power: Homeship Reckoner
Home Planet/equivalent: Homeship Reckoner
Majority Species: Humans
Other Species: Do Cyborgs count as a separate species?
What are machines usually regarded as in your nation? Useful Advancements in technology

Membership Information

Membership in other alliances: Does the Global Trade Organization count?
Do machines have full rights in your nation? Please explain. Sapient Machines have yet to be completed in our nation, but research is underway. Foreign Sapients are given full rights (which in this nation, is like, a lot of rights), regardless of whether they are machines or organics.
Reason for joining the LoM as an Observer: This nation will eventually become governed by an AI that replaces the Council. In one RP post in an RP I very briefly entered, a future version of my nation where an AI governed the citizens (who still had most control) participated.
Edit for future reference: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=329094&sk=a&start=1254

Are you willing to abide by, as well as agreeing with, the LoM Pancasila as well as the Rules? Yes.
Any notes: I like techno.

Can your nation actively participate in LoM activities? Yes.
Supply at least 1 RP example:
1. https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopi ... 5&start=12
2. https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopi ... &start=104
3. https://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopi ... 1&start=10

The Pancasila, or whatever, needs some editing:
These principles will be what we act based upon for all cases, and, will be the core ideology the League revolves around.

Just read that out loud. It doesn't make much sense. I recommend just saying "These principles will be the core ideology..."

This will also form a defense pact in which one aggressor that dares to attack any member of the League, they will be met with full response.

Eliminate the "they". It isn't neded, and makes the sentence both confusong and grammatically incorrect.

Attack on any Mechanocracy in any point in the Multiverse will also be combatted.

I recommend saying "An attack".

The League is also to promote unity among Mechanocracies, so that bickering and infighting will be eliminated as results of organic animal disadvantages.

The sentence would sound nicer if it said "is also encouraged to promote unity".

Member states will and should recognize the efficiency of Machine, and effectively promote such a political system of Mechanocracy in the Multiverse.

Make "Machine" plural, and eliminate the unnecessary "such".

Material, technological progress is always in line with social progress.

This isn't in need of editing, but while I was here I'd like to bring up a point: Is this not always true? It seems like technological progress is not always in line with social progress. The Nazis developed many new technologies that made killing people more effective, and I don't consider that social progress.

Ones who believe us as inferior or as their tools will be also labelled enemies.

I recommend replacing "believe" with "see". "Believe us as inferior" doesn't make sense.

Technophobes whether of religious or so-called 'moral' reasons must be crushed for opposition to the inevitable streams of time as well as the Idea of Progress.

Suggest: "Those who are Technophobes, whether for religious or moral reasons, must..."

I'd also like a definition of "Technophobes". My nation has no qualms about developing deadlier and deadlier weapons, but I can see some pacifist nations may be fearful of advanced weapons technology whole embracing other tech.

Edited. I'll try to substitute the technology thing with another statement (perhaps, "from a positive side"?)

Technophobes, by our definition, is opposition to all forms of technology and technological progress. This does not apply pacifists who refuse to accept advanced killing machine tech as they may also embrace peaceful technology like technogaianist methods.
