Is AN a real democracy?

Postby Samporna » Tue Aug 13, 2019 5:34 am

Do you, or your citizens, or even your leader; consider AN a truly democratic country? Or is AN in truth an autocracy disguising itself as a democracy?

Since there is none above me, I will but simply say, that yes; I personally consider Samporna a true democracy.

The AN is most likely an authoritarian democracy with monarchical institutions.

It does not even pretend to be one, and does not hold elections.
It is definitely not a democracy.

They appear to be a restrictive democracy, as they seem to repress a lot of their citizens.
An Oligarchic state where the ultra-rich govern a nation of entrepreneurs and innovators. Just as corrupt, hedonistic and materialistic as you think, despite its progressive policies and emphasis on quality of life.

Well we wouldn't consider them a democracy, but a dictatorship using a popular facade. Like Venice or Florence if they were also a theocracy.

My nation really doesn't disguise itself as a democracy at all. We are an oppressive, genocidal, totalitarian surveillance state and we're proud.

It's a form of democracy, yes, but that likely does not extend to the colonies like most other Empires in history, making it a de facto autocratic regime.

Kabzeel, meaning "God's Gathering" in hebrew, is a federal, dominant-party, socialist constitutional monarchy with a rich Jewish heritage dating back to it's creation in 845 CE. Today, it spans almost the entirety of Eastern Europe and is the largest predominately Jewish and female-led state in the world as it follows the doctrine of "Royal Socialism", a paternalistic conservative ideology with an emphasis on socialization, social ownership, and conservative feminism.

Ja
Just some nonsense I made up one night while I was sleep deprived and bored. Magical, Near Future, Romaboo, Monarchist America in the Aftermath of a Mass Super-Empowering Event that lead to the emergence of many Demigod/Superhumans (Think Apocalypse from X-Men) that caused or worsened countless conflicts around the world.
