    I think it'd be cool to have some sort of virtual governement simulation here. Anyone else interested? And to the mods, would this take up too much bandwidth?

    Could do that, or something similar to a United Nations Simulation.

    Or a nation simulation.

    However, I think the U.S. Gov't and UN simulations would be too closely similar to their real life counterparts; useless. :eusa_whistle:

    I think the best idea to go with would be to basically create our own fictional nation, members make up their own "states" within the country. I'd prefer a parlimentary system of government but we could style it like the USA system too, just depends on how many of you would be interested and what the majority believe would be a better system.

    My idea, we'd have to have someone who is an administrator here join to play the part of "Governor". Basically they'd be the person that makes sure we keep it somewhat civil and get things accomplished and keep track of all the bills passed etc, if we have a parlimentary style government.

    I was just wondering if anyone was interested in seeing if we could make it work, because I am willing to work with the administrators to come up with the rules and all the little intricacies involved with making it happen.

    So Gunny, you could be "Governor", which would be close enough to God in the simulation.:lol: Ofcourse, that's if you're even interested in participating in something like this.

    I think it'd be easier to have a parliment-style government. Where you'd make up your own "state" or "province", and you're the representaive, you cannot be voted out. What positions we would vote for would be prime minister/president every 2 terms, each term would be say, a month, so at the end of 2 terms, we vote either to keep the same prime minister, but we also allow every district/state representative to run. We could vote on treasurers, etc.

    Sound like it would work?
