The New Political Roleplay




Eblanca is an island nation in the northern areas of the Phillipine Sea, with a population of 15 million, and an area of around 25,000 square kilometers. The island is technologically advanced, rich in natural resources, and is a thriving democracy governed with a semi-presidential system with a unicameral legislature, the Senate. The capital, Montgri, lies on the northern coast.

Eblanca was uninhabited until it was discovered by Polynesian settlers around 5,000 years ago, when some villages were formed on the South coast. Europeans arrived in the 16th century, when the Spanish settled there. The Dutch attempted to settle in order to expand their colony in Taiwan, but such attempts were unsuccessful.

The Spanish maintained control of the island until 1902, when a Spanish Empire weakened by the Spanish-American war had the island seized by the Japanese. The island remained under Japanese control until 1945, when the island was occupied by the United States after the second world war. The occupation ended in 1953, when the new Constitution was ratified by the unicameral senate and set up a semi-presidential democracy that has remained relatively stable since. The nation has since developed into one of the happiest and technologically advanced in the world, with a life expectancy of 82.

The President serves a maximum of two 4-year terms and is elected via an instant runoff system, and the Senate via Single Transferable Vote, with 6 members per constituency, 15 constituencies, and elections held every 5 years.



Rules

1- OP is Lord and the Co-OP's are the princes appointed by the OP. Their word is law. Follow it.
2- Post when you can-warn us if you can't. A post per week is a good minimum standard, but we understand that real-life gets in the way. If you plan to leave, or you will be offline for some time, especially if you are interacting with someone, please try to let us know.
3-Make some IC effort. We are more lenient than most, here, but do try to put some effort into your IC posts. Try to keep one-liners to a minimum, though they are fine if in a conversation.
4- Respect your fellow players. Play nice. If you don't have friends, you won't have fun.
5- No Sue/flawless/perfect characters Give them some flaws. No one has fun when everyone is perfect. Everyone wants to be a young, tall, strong, charismatic superman. We'd like a little more depth than that.
-5a A "wealth cap" is in place of one billion dollars in net worth. A 'soft cap' exists at one hundred million dollars in net worth, this can be exceeded in an application, but is strongly advised against, and may be denied.
6-No cheat-edits Once you've made an IC post, leave it. Tweaks to formatting are all right, but don't try to change what you've already put down, especially if it has already been responded to. If your character said it in public, it must stay.
7- If you are not sure if something is legal, ask OOC first. Always better to check-and there is limited leniency for things that are obviously bad.
8-No assassination attempts. You can probably look for a loophole there-don't. In essence, no use of extreme physical force against another player, or anything like poison. If you and another both agree, contact an OP, and it will be discussed-unilateral action is strictly forbidden.
-8 a. Allegations of sexual assault are now covered by this rule. They can still be made, but require OP approval.
9-No research in closed situations-For the short version-no search engines in debates. You can do all the research you like in preparation, but while a debate is going on, no citing of outside resources is permitted. This is on the honor system-but if you start spouting off statistics to the fifth decimal place, we'll probably catch on. In short, when you're in a situation where your character can't be looking things up, you can't either. If you're not sure-ask an OP.
10-No metagaming. This takes two forms-first, using OOC knowledge that you have but your character could not in the IC, and second, attempting to "engineer" a character specifically to do something in relation to specific aspects of another character or a situation. Hiccups aside, keep OOC and IC separate. Similarly
11-Keep OOC comments out of the IC. We have a whole thread set aside just for that reason. Putting and leaving OOC comments in parenthesis degrades the quality of the RP, wholly OOC posts in the IC are right out. Bring up any issues in the OOC, or TG the OP.
12-PG-13. The site has a PG-13 rule, and we follow it. Swearing is acceptable in-character, but do your best not to make a habit of it, and censor the harder language if you can. Explicit sexual reference are prohibited-if that ever becomes necessary, use euphemisms. The same holds true for gore.
13-Leaving the Roleplay. Due to the nature of the roleplay, significant politicians are not easily replaceable if their player leaves. Should you depart from the roleplay unexpectedly, your character may be used for the purposes of the roleplay, ranging from simulated votes to allowing another player temporary control. By applying for a character and participating in the roleplay, you accept this potential relinquishing of the character. Should a player return, priority is giving to returning the character to their control.
14-Foreign Characters Not all characters have to be Eblancan, foreigners whose actions relate to Eblanca are allowed (I.e. US president or foreign minister).
15- Have fun! Misery is illegal.

Biography: (Minimum 2-3 paragraphs)

Carlos was born into a wealth Eblancan family in 1959. He was a child of intellect and privilege, enjoying the best schools and tutors money could buy. He was accepted at Harvard in 1977 to study economics and business management, graduating with honors in 81.

Returning home he worked for his families shipping company, turning a profit and making connections in the nations business community. Despite the successes of his family he was struck by the consistent crime and poverty in the city of Laguna (second largest city in the country) where his company was based. He became increasingly frustrated and politically involved until he ran for mayor in 1990.

He won a narrow victory as a member of the Liberal Coalition and served for two terms. During his time as mayor he took inspiration from New York City, implementing broken windows policing, anti-corruption measures and an expansive pro-business agenda. Crime went down and the economy went up. Carlo left the office and returned to his business highly popular with the people of Laguna, in 1998.

He remained working with the family business until 2002 when the Governor of Candon province appointed him to fulfill a vacancy in the Senate. He came just in time for the Liberal Coalition to reinvent itself into the New Liberal Coalition, which was much more focused on economic issues and a somewhat more populist message. Carlo found himself riding the wave into election in his own right in '05, inspired by the groundswell of support he began to rise through the ranks of his party, winning another election in '10 before running for President in '12.

Running on a platform of economic liberalization and more moderate social policies, Carlo took 57% of the vote. Carlo followed the lead of nations like India and China and began liberalizing the economy and freeing up trade. The highest corporate tax rate became 18% and regulation was slashed. The economy boomed, and unemployment fell, goods were cheaper and in '16 Carlo was re-elected with 58% of the vote.

But it was soon after that a massive crack emerged in the New Liberal Coalition. Unexpectedly a bill to legalize gay marriage passed through the Senate, the Catholic Church had long been a strong supporter of the Liberal Coalition but after its reformation, social issues had taken more and more of a back seat. Carlo signed the legalization into law, and the walls came tumbling down. Carlo had always been a moderate socially, even allowing abortion to be legal before the end of the first trimester, this bill was the last straw and the social conservatives deserted the coalition.

The NLC went from 58% of the Senate to 40% of the Parliament, many blamed Carlo who has since become somewhat of a lame duck in a divided Senate... Still Carlo's economic legacy is undeniable, with the country still growing at a steady rate. Unable to run for a third term Carlo now looks to the future.

Maybe, but Eblanca's *north* of the Philippines, so I'm expecting much less Muslims. I'd expect around 5-10%.

That seems reasonable. Although, we have to see who actually has the majority, then I can flesh out the Senate figures.

Character Information Sheet


NS Nation Name:
Character Name: Carlo Rigoberto Saiden Estrada
Character Gender: M
Character Age: 60
Character Height: 6’0”
Character Weight: 176lbs
Character Position/Role/Job:
Appearance: (Photo preferred, not required)
Image
Character Country of Origin: Eblanca
Character Country of Residence: Eblanca
Character Party Affiliation: New Liberal Coalition
Main Strengths: Strong Economic Record, many accomplishments, rich
Main Weaknesses: Big deficit, lost coalition, born with silver spoon, lame duck
Biography: (Minimum 2-3 paragraphs)

Carlos was born into a wealth Eblancan family in 1959. He was a child of intellect and privilege, enjoying the best schools and tutors money could buy. He was accepted at Harvard in 1977 to study economics and business management, graduating with honors in 81.

Returning home he worked for his families shipping company, turning a profit and making connections in the nations business community. Despite the successes of his family he was struck by the consistent crime and poverty in the city of Laguna (second largest city in the country) where his company was based. He became increasingly frustrated and politically involved until he ran for mayor in 1990.

He won a narrow victory as a member of the Liberal Coalition and served for two terms. During his time as mayor he took inspiration from New York City, implementing broken windows policing, anti-corruption measures and an expansive pro-business agenda. Crime went down and the economy went up. Carlo left the office and returned to his business highly popular with the people of Laguna, in 1998.

He remained working with the family business until 2002 when the Governor of Candon province appointed him to fulfill a vacancy in the Senate. He came just in time for the Liberal Coalition to reinvent itself into the New Liberal Coalition, which was much more focused on economic issues and a somewhat more populist message. Carlo found himself riding the wave into election in his own right in '05, inspired by the groundswell of support he began to rise through the ranks of his party, winning another election in '10 before running for President in '12.

Running on a platform of economic liberalization and more moderate social policies, Carlo took 57% of the vote. Carlo followed the lead of nations like India and China and began liberalizing the economy and freeing up trade. The highest corporate tax rate became 18% and regulation was slashed. The economy boomed, and unemployment fell, goods were cheaper and in '16 Carlo was re-elected with 58% of the vote.

But it was soon after that a massive crack emerged in the New Liberal Coalition. Unexpectedly a bill to legalize gay marriage passed through the Senate, the Catholic Church had long been a strong supporter of the Liberal Coalition but after its reformation, social issues had taken more and more of a back seat. Carlo signed the legalization into law, and the walls came tumbling down. Carlo had always been a moderate socially, even allowing abortion to be legal before the end of the first trimester, this bill was the last straw and the social conservatives deserted the coalition.

The NLC went from 58% of the Senate to 40% of the Parliament, many blamed Carlo who has since become somewhat of a lame duck in a divided Senate... Still Carlo's economic legacy is undeniable, with the country still growing at a steady rate. Unable to run for a third term Carlo now looks to the future.

Two works in progress going in, I will probably add the last things tomorrow.




Character Information Sheet


NS Nation Name: Great Confederacy of Commonwealth States
Character Name: Ali Gitana Choa Montano
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 35
Character Height: 1.83m
Character Weight: 85kg
Character Position/Role/Job: Mayor of Montgri
Appearance:
Image
Character Country of Origin: Eblanca
Character Country of Residence: Eblanca
Character Party Affiliation: Eblanca Popular Front, centrist wing
Main Strengths: Ali is a rebel-rouser and an organiser. From his experience in the union, he knows how to kick up a fuss. He is savvy to media, and knows how to grip the nation's attention. His way of speaking is easy to listen to, so he can grab an audience easily, and he is a skilled negotiator.
Main Weaknesses: While he has experience in organising strikes and other actions, he has more trouble working within a bureaucratic organisation. It's easy to criticise things from the outside, but actually being flawless takes a lot more effort. Apart from that, Ali is known as a rebel rouser, which has not garnered him friends in high places. He is entirely dependent on his popularity with the electorate, which means he lacks political capital, especially with the president being of the New Liberal Coalition.
Biography: Ali Montano was born in poverty in 1985, during the waning days of the Cold War. With Japan, South Korea and his native Eblanca already having achieved staggering economic growth, and the relations between the US and USSR markedly improving with every year, Ali grew up during a period of increased optimism about what the future would bring. The future would be more equal, more democratic, more free than any point in history prior. His parents, humble farmers in the south of the country, hoped that things would also improve for them in the end.

However, the automation of the early 2000's brought with it many problems for Ali and his family. Farm hands were laid off left and right, and soon they too had to move out. A proper Catholic family, eight strong, had to move into the capital. There, Ali just had rudimentary education before dropping out of high school in order to make some money for his family. He worked several jobs, including as a kitchen hand, a store clerk and a pizza courier. When he was hired for postal work, Ali became increasingly involved with the Postal Union. He participated in the Christmas Strikes and Christmas Riots of 2012, wherein he was thrust forward as one of the leading figures. In 2013, Ali quit his job for full time union work, this time for the umbrella union Central Autónoma de Trabajadores (CA.TT).

The mayor of the capital of Montgri traditionally belonged to the centre-right NLC. This meant that trade unions were actively discouraged, and did not have much sway in local politics. Ever since 2014, however, the CA.TT began organising effective strikes, coordinating several trade strikes simultaneously. During large football matches, strikes in public transit and alcohol sales were organised. Taxi drivers would strike during performances of the National Ballet. In this way, the CA.TT managed to get some good deals with employer organisations. However, it would not be enough if local politics continued to waylay them every step of the way, especially with hard police action. In late 2019, after a particularly vicious union strike and protest, and disproportional police response, the NLC mayor had to step down. New mayoral elections were held, and in a large upset, Popular Front candidate Ali managed to eke out a win, partially because public transport was made free by a special labour strike during voting day, which meant many poorer people could get to the polls.

Ali might not be ready for what is waiting for him, however. The city council faces election at the end of 2020, and is still very much controlled by the NLC. What is more, now he has to choose whether to keep being a rebel-rouser and a partisan, or whether he wants to don the suit and tie and become a typical mayor. Especially with local as well as national elections coming up, the mayor of Montgri has to show that Popular Front can do more than just kick against the established order.

Character Information Sheet


NS Nation Name: Great Confederacy of Commonwealth States
Character Name: Vina Guadalupe Lanta Alcázar
Character Gender: Female
Character Age: 54
Character Height: 1.65m
Character Weight: 60 kg
Character Position/Role/Job: Supreme Court Judge, Chief of the Constitutional Division
Appearance:
Image
Character Country of Origin: Eblanca
Character Country of Residence: Eblanca
Character Party Affiliation: None, though her views align most with the New Liberals
Main Strengths:
Main Weaknesses: Vina is an academic at heart, which means she has little feeling for the politics behind her decisions, or the personal effects they might have. She is used to thinking in systems and boxes, entirely in abstractions, so she has little understanding for the actual political weight of the job she does. She likes to see her judgements as entirely apolitical, but of course that is impossible to achieve in law.
Biography: Vina Alcázar was born to a wealthy family in the Montgri suburbs at the height of the Cold War. Her parents were famed lawyers. Her father, the legendary Pineñto Alcázar, has refused to retire his firm even though he is well into his seventies. From birth, Vina was expected to attend university and get some kind of degree, preferably in law. Her parents, who had known much hardship after the end of Japanese occupation, did everything in their power to make sure she would never lack a thing. A personal driver brought her to school and picked her up, she owned a pony and two dogs, she went on holiday to Japan, South Korea, the US, even went on Safari to Africa.

After graduating with a degree in Eblancan constitutional law and Eblancan civil law, Vina joined the Order of Advocates and went to work for her father's law firm. She primarily managed cases of foreign companies against the Eblancan government and Eblancan unions, making sure the rights of these companies and employers were safeguarded. In the meantime, she kept writing academic articles, especially on thorny constitutional subjects. She actually opposed the switch to STV as an unnecessary alteration of the constitution. After a while, Vina made a career switch to the civil service, becoming a judge with the administrative tribunal in Montgri. She rose through the ranks, and eventually was named to head the constitutional division of the Supreme Tribunal in Montgri by president Estrada. She would become the first female judge to lead such a division.

Over the last couple of years, Vina has made herself known as a publicly apolitical judge, who wants to conform to the law above all else. She refuses to even dine with top politicians. Still, her views are very much in line with the NLC, which is why she was nominated to the position in the first place. She has a strong view that judges should not become legislators, but should conform themselves to the wishes of the legislature while speaking justice.
