Social Democracy is really not Marxism.
There's really no Marxist based parties in your nation whatsoever?

You're applying just for observer status, so we'll think on it and let you know.

You're applying just for observer status, so we'll think on it and let you know.

The “old guard” of the CSD maintain a firm grip in individual Emirates’ legislatures and are firmly democratic socialist, as opposed to social democratic, as a hearkening back to the earlier days, when the Emirates had a mostly socially-owned economy over most goods and services, though subsistence was allowed for the poorest and those living in the rural areas, and no more than that. The federal legislature is more social democratic. There’s the PRZ, which are De Leonist in their platform presently, but until the era of the Glasnost and Perestroika (when they softened their image), they were pan-Marxist and consisted of socialists for the most part, and still have a sizeable socialist (with added communists such as Trotskyists, and even some old-school Maoists in the form of international students who decided to stay). However PRZ believes it best to push the De Leonist platform presently, and is in practise pan-leftist, and more authoritarian than CSD and GD. Thus, PRZ does not form coalitions with the CSD or the watermelons, out of principle, though they are far more represented in individual Emirates rather than federally. The representative sent, Roza Dagi, is a member of PRZ in Dagestan and a socialist of the authoritarian democratic vein.

OOC: I am a bit confused, I apologise. It says so in your OP “While mainly it would be focused on the Socialist ideology, I think we could include communists and other Marxists and Leftists as fellow brethren (or sisterhood)” and I figured that the main ruling party fell under “other[...]leftists” so that’s why I figured I could apply. Either way, if I don’t apply, no hard feelings; I’m just trying to get into the hang of roleplaying again after a 4+ year dry spell, which even before that, I was not doing very much anyway. I did genuinely enjoy filling out the form, though. :P

Now, I am confused. I don't understand why you don't apply with one of these other parties, like the De Leonists. Social Democrats, while not fully embracing unbridled capitalism, try to work within its framework to change it, rather than tearing down capitalism altogether. Hence why it's borderline counter-revolutionary and not in the least Marxist, even if borrowing from socialism. We have discussed it and we can accept your social democrat representative as an observer, which is how you applied anyway, otherwise, you can apply with one of your more socialist parties for full membership.

Relevant in what way? We are a very relevant organization to NS and are planning several RPs, as well as having an active Discord. Hope that helps.

Communism falls under the umbrella of Marxism, but I understand this choice to not assign any human figure full credit.

This is a bit of 4th wall breaking, although many RP as their NS nation owning or dealing with parts of the RL (real life) world, although it infers that everyone unilateraly has dominance or organizational control over various dimensional versions of the same RL nations. I won't go further down this multiversal rabbit hole, but hopefully it can be explained by someone to you soon. (Happy to debate this with you, off thread) As you begin to RP more, you will further integrate your nation with NS regions and other nations here, and reference to RL locations will probably be phased out. Many of us did this when we first joined NS.

Explain more, please. Not having a party makes it difficult to work with your representative.

It would help to know the party, as we consider representatives to represent their respective parties rather than their nations. Also, having your leader be your representative might cause IC difficulty as she would need to represent in the Congress quite often which would call her away from leadership duties in your nation.

Perhaps, with all the confusion, you might want to apply for observer status first to see how things will work, then re-apply for full membership status later.

NSD is NationStates Dollars = US $. It is the standard that most everyone RPs and converts their currencies to in order to enable economic relations with other nations. While your socialist utopia is admirable for not using currency, it isn't very practical or realistic, unless your nation is completely self contained with a barter system and no need for outside trade whatsoever. As you RP more here, you'll realize you will want to be able to have economic dealings with those who aren't completely on the same level as your nation, whether that's with NSD or precious metals or some other commodity.

The Proletarian Republic wrote:ISVC Contributor: (Y/N) Confused what is meant by this.


International Socialist Volunteer Corps is desribed in the OP. It is the military/interventionist arm of the ISC and where a lot of the RP comes in, at least until we get a thread for the Congress going. Contribution to the ISVC can be anything from monetary, to humanitarian, to combat units, equipment and logistical supplies. Not all ISVC members are also ISC members and vice versa.

Happy to explain more and work with you on some level and introduce you to more RP concepts, especially those that are particular to NS. My opinions are obviously subjective, but I've found that most hold these conventions.

I meant that I'm not sure if you were still accepting submissions. For all I knew, the Congress could have stopped existing a few months ago. Thanks for helping though!

Exactly. In the alternate universe of the Commune, the term "Marxism" never really took hold.

Makes sense, although I would like to have the country based in the real world, it's very possible that after a while I will stop even attempting it.
The Cardwith Islands wrote:Explain more, please. Not having a party makes it difficult to work with your representative.

Well, delegates in the councils do not offer their allegiance to any political party. It is not like liberal democracies where parties have primaries to elect a candidate, etc. Each delegate is elected from workplaces to rule over an individual commune(aka city), each Commune Council elects a delegate to represent their commune in their Regional Council, each region elects a delegate to represent them in their National Council, and the National Councils elect delegates to the Central Council. Political parties may be formed by people in order to advance their beliefs but delegates usually do not pledge their allegiance to a particular party.

Well, as she has no executive power, she doesn't spend a lot of time doing acutal "leading," she mostly spends time doing interviews, press releases, reading, speaking to the people of the Commune, etc. However, I understand your concerns, and perhaps it would be better to have the Central Council elect someone to represent the Commune in the ISC.

I understand your concerns. I have noticed how difficult roleplaying is without currency, so I have considered reestablishing currency and for the sake of roleplaying simply say that the Commune hasn't reached the point where currency aboliton is feasable.

Ahhh, I see. Sorry for not being observant enough. I think it would fun to join the ISVC, although I wouldn't join until I got a good understanding of the ISC at all.

Many thanks for your patience, and I apologise for being slow as molasses in being able to read and comprehend things. :P Gonna try again with the PRZ, though bear in mind this isn't an official federal government stance, but individual Emirates' executive governments beg to differ.

Full IC nation name: The Federation of North Caucasian Emirates
Is your government ruled under Marxist principles? Not necessarily Marxist federally, per se, as it is social democracy by principle. However, the party that is applying is the De Leonist-by-image (but having harder leftists than either the Green Democrats (GD) and Caucasian Social Democrats (CSD) their ranks) Partizans (PRZ), and they have considerably more influence—even power—in the southern Emirates.
RP National population: 15,660,000
Name of main socialist/Marxist or other leftist political party: Partizans (PRZ; De Leonist; pan-hard leftist), which is being represented.
Any other leftist parties allowed in your nation? Yes. The main one of CSD (social democracy), and Green Democrats (GD; eco-socialism).
Number of registrants/members in leftist political party (or parties): ~100,000 across all of the leftist political parties in total, but approximately 30,000 in the PRZ.
National leader: HGH Iryna Tchemerzine
Ideology: Federal Constitutional Monarchy as the Head of State. Social Democratic Head of Government, who is also of lower working-class origins. Social Democracy-dominated federal legislature. Democratic socialist, De Leonist, and harder leftist dominated local legislatures of the southernmost Emirates (read: Ossetia, Kabardia, and Qarachay have majority PRZ executive governments; Dagestan and Ingushetia have a large number of PRZ members in their legislatures).
Representative to the IS Congress: Roza Dagi, PRZ Elector for Dagestan.
Full member or observer status? Full member. Separate from the Observer status of the official federal government.
Financial Contributor to the IS Congress? (Please state yearly contribution in NSD): NSD$7,000 (₽35,000)
ISVC Contributor: No.
Other Information: This is not an official representative of the federal Emirati government, but rather a prominent political party which is registered and represented in legislatures across all Emirates that sees the CSD as political "wets", selling out of their values of years past for the sake of trying to reconcile with the growing capitalism of the wider world.

Full IC nation name: Republic of Mubata
Is your government ruled under Marxist principles? Not at all, it is a nationalist Republican regime and very anti-Marxist.
RP National population: 32,362,748 (2012 census)
Name of main socialist/Marxist or other leftist political party: MFM (Mubatan Freedom Movement)
Any other leftist parties allowed in your nation? No leftist parties are allowed in the Republic, but a handful still survive since the post-independence purges.
Number of registrants/members in leftist political party (or parties): Hard to pin down a number as they have to operate on such a covert level and no official rosters are kept.
National leader: President-for-Life Linaga Fazembe
Ideology: Socialist, leaning towards Trotskyite communism
Representative to the IS Congress: Cacile Ngomane
Full member or observer status? Full Member
Financial Contributor to the IS Congress? (Please state yearly contribution in NSD): Unable to contribute financially at this time
ISVC Contributor: (Y/N) Yes, we have a brigade in the ISVC
Other Information The MFM is heavily persecuted. They are slowly recovering and reorganizing after the death of their leader and founder, Chigama Dzogara. During a major Mubatan Army campaign to eradicate them once and for all, the government forces were able to surround the band that was escoring the top leadership and destroy them. The MFM continues under Odzana Dzogara, the son of Chigama, and it is starting to regain ground in their fight against the hated Fazembe regime. Odzana is modernizing the movement into the 21st century and ensuring that it can withstand future government campaigns to wipe it out. Of major note: The MFM is also predominently filled with Zama tribal members, while the government is ruled by elite of the Tizi minority tribe.

What party are you applying with? If it's the social democrats or greens, you may only obtain observer status, due to reasons stated earlier in the thread.

In compliance with the demands of the ISC, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has agreed to give Comrade Kornichev power as Minister-Delegate to the International Socialist Congress in the temporary Sub-Ministry of ISC Diplomacy. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, however, wishes to inform you that the Sub-Ministry is still subject to change once observer status within the ISC is ratified, however, Comrade Kornichev will remain the representative to the congress in the mean time.
