Land of The Free: American Political Roleplay (OOC IV)

CURRENT DATE: August 5th, 2019- August 19th, 2019

Welcome to the Land of the Free, an American Political and Character RP where players can explore the intricacies of government, from the cloak and dagger politics of the capital, to plainspoken compromise in the heartland, to the gritty in-and-outs of running some of the world’s greatest cities.

The year is 2019, and we are nearing the end of one of the most controversial presidencies of the past century. President Wolf, a polarizing and controversial figure, recently announced his intention to stay out of the 2020 Race due to his public diagnosis with a crippling disease. The struggle for the Presidency has been be blown wide open, and all politics hang in the president’s shadow. It is up to you to decide how you will manage in this climate. Will you oppose his policies from the left? Champion them on the right? Or try and chart a middle path amid one of the most polarized periods in American History?

Play as a Senator, Governor, Congressperson, Mayor or any other figure with a hand in today's politics. Or run for office, from dogcatcher to the Presidency to fight for your own slice of the American Political landscape. Create an original character, make history and steer them through... The Land of the Free.

All characters in this RP are original, and all politicians after Reagan left office in 1988 have been replaced with fictional characters. All events that occurred in real history have occurred in this RP, the economy is in the same shape, the climate, international relations, healthcare and everything you can quantify is the same.

What has changed is the President. President Arnold Wolf was elected as a Republican in a populist groundswell, upsetting the ultimate establishment candidate in unprecedented fashion. Wolf is similar to Trump, with similar accusations regarding racism and sexism, a similar tendency to be bombastic and loud, and an identical emphasis on rhetoric that has thrown fuel into the fire of American politics. In 2018 the Republicans took massive losses across the country resulting in losing the House but maintaining the Senate. In late 2018, a government shutdown paralyzed the capitol, but the shutdown was abruptly ended following President Wolf's unexpected capitulation on December 30th. It is 4 days later, the new Congress has been sworn in, and there is an air of great unease that has settled over DC.

In the midst of a time of great political chaos and confusion, where do you stand?



Note: The Land Of The Free is the sanctioned spiritual successor to the long-running and award winning Washington Political RP.




Administrators: Sanabel (Ayatollah), Meelducan(Head Administrator), Imperial Esplanade (12th Imam, currently in occultation), Alozia (Administrator in Charge of Community Outreach and Relations), Dentali (Administrator)



THE LINKS:







COMPOSITION:


27 Republican Governors and 23 Democratic Governors

53 Republican Senators, 45 Democratic Senators, 2 Democratic Caucusing Independent Senators

235 Democratic Representatives, 199 Republican Representatives, and 1 Vacancy




THE RULES:

1. The OP's words are the words of the Gods, but these Gods are not infallible, you can argue your position in a civil way but in the end their decision is final.

2. No real people or celebrities as characters. There is no Bernie Sanders that you can play. As per the introductory note, politicians post-Reagan do not exist, or have been replaced with generic stand-ins: you can play them, should you wish. Records and history are the same, including statistics, save in the places where player-characters have brought about a change.

3. Regarding absences- If you, for whatever reason, must take a leave from the roleplay-that is of course fine. But please inform us ahead and how long it may take. If you are found to have just up and left the RP, we may have to simulate how you character act in votes per say, especially depending on their importance.

4. When it comes to writing; please do it well. We expect a certain level of quality with your posts. One or two sentences will not be acceptable, but we can be permissive-if your character is engaged in conversation, a sentence is fine

5. Please make characters of quality and substance. We don't want Mary Sue flawless characters who are 30 year olds, models, former sharecroppers with military service earning a medal of honor and then returning from Iraq to attend Harvard. Those characters aren't very fun to play or interact with. But on the other hand-no sabotage characters. Just because you hate Democrats, don't make a hopelessly corrupt and scandal-ridden Democrat with no redeeming qualities.

6. No cheat-edits. Once you've made an IC post, leave it. Edits to formatting are all right along with typos, but don't try to change anything major compared to what you have already written, especially if it has already been responded to. If your character said it in public, it must stay. Gaffes happen, after all.

7. If you are not sure if something is legal or okay, ask OOC first. Always better to check-and there is limited leniency for things that are obviously bad.

8. No events that directly affect another character without permission first. In essence, avoid physical altercations and outrageous "accidents". Assassination is banned, any external action taken against politicians will take place in the form of an event.

9. No meta-gaming. Do not let the OOC influence the realism of your character's actions. If they are in a closed situation in which information is limited, they cannot state specific statistics, for example.

10. PG-13 limit. Per site-wide rules, nothing too saucy or racy. You know it when you see it.





In this roleplay's predecessor, Washington, there was a tendency for players, especially newcomers, to gravitate towards a certain kind of character, dubbed "hotshots", with several traits typically in common: An extremely young, often fiery, successful, tall and attractive politician, with excellent charisma and skills, often winning in a district or state that their party typically loses in, and possessing an inspiring backstory, with their 'weaknesses' being stubbornness, unwillingness to follow the rules, and generally being an anti-establishment rebel type. Oftentimes as well, their views may be a self-insert of the player's own.

While such a character makes an excellent movie star, they are less fit for a roleplay based off of the realities of Washington. Few thirty-year old Senators built like football players and models are running about, and only so many anti-establishment characters can exist before the 'establishment' becomes a minority.

The recommendation is for new players to consider expanding their horizons. Instead of looking for a "movie star" "hotshot" character type, consider making a character who holds different views than you, who has definite weaknesses, older, establishment. Perhaps more skilled in experience, or other ways.

Everyone wants to be the young prodigy, but it is a better roleplay experience for all, including yourself, to seek some diversity.

These are all characters controlled by nations that have ceased to exist. I suggest we either redistribute them or purge them from office.

Marsch is a House member, he will be gone fairly soon IC

Hawthorne has been purged

Doyle’s player CTE’d recently, I’d rather wait.

Bragg we can redistribute.

Norm Lee we can redistribute.

Governor Chambers we can redistribute if people want him.

Albert O’Hanny will be gone reasonably soon.

Zhang can be replaced fairly easy if the need comes. Kolumbia also tends to return after long hiatus.

Haverford and Gonzalez are very minor characters.

I have no notable interest in Marsch

Bye bye Hawthorne

Come back Laver Baller :(

No time for a third presidential campaign, I wish tho hehe

Conservative Kingdom 2.0 with Gov. Norm Lee

Chambers is now Orion's :)

I have no notable interest in O'Hanny

Come back Kolumbia!

Now I would be interested in absorbing either Haverford or Gonzalez...hehe so many plans or possibilities

As long as Porter doesn't lose any support, and just retains it...Even if his ceiling lowers, I'll be fine with it.

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real
There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling
I can't seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced
That there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure
Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real
Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Distracting, reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting how I can't seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced
That there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure
Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me

Nah, it's more like this:

"The sun on the meadow is summery warm.
The stag in the forest runs free.
But gather together to greet the storm.
Tomorrow belongs to me.
The branch of the linden is leafy and
Green,
The Rhine gives its gold to the sea.
But somewhere a glory awaits unseen.
Tomorrow belongs to me.
Now Fatherland, Fatherland, show us the sign
Your children have waited to see
The morning will come
When the world is mine
Tomorrow belongs to me
Tomorrow belongs to me
Tomorrow belongs to me
Tomorrow belongs to me"

But yeah, I'll admit, I got a little carried away. Like a lot.

If Alozia doesn't show up to the debate, can I have Caldwell?

You can have her as soon as you deliver me the famous Lana Del Rey cocaine spoon locket.

This is a serious condition, good luck.

He shook his fist just above the podium, giving a verbal and nonverbal display of strength through his booming voice and through his strong words.

Yeah I like to think that the audience is completely silent during this, not reacting at all

They're not meant to, but I see what you mean.

Also, on an unrelated note, someone said that the US would be like Yugoslavia if it had different values, and that genuinely sounds like a fun game: Balkanization of the Southern United States (from California to North Carolina) would be an amazing RP to play ngl
