Ok then.

Ugunnustan wrote:Right thanks :)
TL:DR election season, please read all of the parties and your reigions points.

ELECTION SEASON IS UPON US

As you may know from the recent bombardment you have been getting advertisment wise across the streets of Ugunnustan, Election season in Ugunnustan is upon us, Please remeber to vote for your favourite candidate, as they may sitll win a seat!

Preferential voting

Ugunnustan uses a system of preferential voting or 'prfeenyiual voteng' (Most Ugunni's use the english word) What is preferential voting?

In a prefernential voting system, you order candidates, with 1 being your first choice, 2 being your second favourite and so on and so forth. There will be a certain number of votes from each district that the candidate needs to reach to gain that seat in their county, If you preference fails to reach the number of votes needed, your votes could go to your second, so they would win.

Each district and their points contributing to the total.

Ugunnustan has 11 districts, here they are ordered by population:

Quimhoek metro: 20
Alecstana metro:20
Bani jerehem: 15
akhtir:15
deporejo:5
hrazdor:5
naahazah:5
kafar motkazim:5
Houmin el kefroun:5
tmenim el andalousseiah:3
tqinsi reserve:2

Each district will get a share of 100 votes as shown above.

Here are the parties running for election

Peace& pacifism party

The PAPP party is headed by current president Eprutrbu rybak Who is running for re-election. This party is all for expanding on the Ugunni statute of neutrality (Which was introduced under his rule) The party further wants to pull Ugunnustan out of all militay alliances and negotiations, and pull entirley out of the canine crisis, This extreme pacifist ideaology wasn't expected to work until Rybak won suddenly out of nowhere, We will have to see.

The welfare party

The welfare party or TWP is headed by Istrkusee jumer Their main goal is to introduce a wide range of Welfare reforms into the country, Including free university, Improved prision systems (Modelled on Norway's) Free healthcare, and various other welfare programmes that'll draim the government coffers, Not very popular outside of Quimhoek.

Samdoshen

Samdoshen, roughly translating to 'Forward' party, is a progressive party headed by Sature bjukie Samdoshen was an ideaology created by him, it entails a massive increase in military stength for Ugunnustan, Samdoshen includes expansion of the WMD programme, abandonment of the Ugunni statute of neutrality, and new arms manufacturing plants.

Monferea party

The monferea party is lead by temo monferea The monferea party has very lofty goals, and is mostly riding on the success of the late tracunia monferea, considered the best president Ugunnustan has ever had. The monferea party plans wild reforms across the country that'll cost alot and are not easily obtainable.

Authoritarian party

Lead by Sikse foube This party is very unlikely to win any seats in the country. It has had a history of awful showings through Ugunnustan. It aims to set up a firmly anti immigration, militaristic state in Ugunnustan.

Native party

A single issue party from the soaliaseza reserve aimed at gaining more rights and land for the natives of Ugunnustan, lead by ubreitjersore- hubrekile uhnjireogunsei ( God Ugunni names are hard) The Native party will most likely win very minimal seats due to its single issue nature, but if it does win one, then it may be able to influence the government a little.

The environmental party

Finally the environmental party, headed up by Richecu alister is a party focused on improving climate change and the environment in Ugunnustan, the environmental party has had problems before with Ugunnustans deeply uranium entrenched economy, but alister seems to have a refreshign new approach, trying to offset this, instead of re-place it, we will have to see.

Read factbook

I've just noticed that my total points add up to 100, so theoreticly its possible for the votes to end in a tie. Also i think my points per district are eally unbalanced i need to balance it better, but what do you guys think? :)

The system of the US is capable of ties too, they have their own protocol for that. Renea's could also end in a tie (though highly unlikely), and we also have our own protocol for that.

Hey Renea Sorry to be a bother i just sent you a telegram do you mind checking it please :)

Our council of 9 AIs get to cast a vote, and they cannot tie.

Not the Tubbius family babies. They simply don't age and just get plumper.

Independent Mercury wrote:yes, very much so. It is unfortunately due to a crisis in the making of the canines throwing themselves like wolves at everyone.

Well, that's nothing new.

What if I go and give my nation's military an actual purpose.
Rather than just being there, what if I sook the time to really make a doctrine, real battle plans, refine my military equipment so that it reflects my needs, and just make it better in general.
I've been reading up on this matter a lot in the forums, and I think I have a good idea of what to do.
Besides that, does anyone have, like, any personal suggestions that they've found out over their time making military or military RPing?

Try not to get too swept up in the 'cool' factor. There's indulgence, but then there's pointlessness. Flamethrowers are 'cool', but absolutely outmoded by today's standards by either bunker-busting munitions, readily available explosives, or thermobaric weapons. Don't expect to lean heavily on one tool and expect a min-maxed military to work-- militaries need a well-rounded, widely equipped force structure to function properly. Just because you have so good of air defense systems does not mean you don't need an air force.

As for doctrine, don't get tripped up on one simple thing; tactics are not strategies are not doctrine. Beloved buzzwords for NS'ers are 'Defense in Depth' and 'Combined Arms', etc. These are strategies, or perhaps not even that, just ethos. Don't summarize your military's behaviors into buzzwords. For doctrine, understand that it is the highest level of military thinking, so much so that it nearly blends into geopolitics rather than just warfare. As such, don't say how your troops will fight (tactics) or how your generals will direct them (strategy), but list the perceived threats to your nation (such as specifically !NotRussia, nude libertarian terrorists, or emerging nuclear powers (Cough !NotNKorea)), the present ability of your nation to counteract them or fight them should war occur (economic strength of MIC, political alliances or diplomatic geography, technological readiness, overall capability to wage war or otherwise) and where the nation's leaders or military thinkers hope to see development in the military if they are coming short of complete assurance of victory.

Also making factbooks for military equipment is badass is useful for referencing original (therefore generally interesting) military equipment for writing posts and understanding how your military would work, but should not be the end-all I-Win-You-Lose-At-War statement. Also, in terms of RP'ing, don't lose focus of what you're trying to do. Writers, particularly on NS, have a thing where they ramble about the technical specifications of a goddamn boat for a hundred words and people start wondering why they just didn't link a factbook and be done with it. You are trying to write a story, hopefully, and not a number-laden flex of imaginary military might. Give your readers a story, not a factbook. That's what factbooks are for.

Edit2: Also, since I see you already have equipment factbooks, consider reexamining what you have rather than try to make a single explanation for the stuff you have. Ask yourself, 'does my military need this?' 'What real purpose does it serve?' 'Is there anything else that does this same job?' and so forth.

Defense funds accidentally sent to health department amidst military arming ramping up

With a few international incidents recently involving Renea's military, it's no surprise that Sazanami was able to pass a bill to allocate more funds for the production of nuclear weapons to add to the current stockpile. However, there was one fatal mistake within the legislature; the funds were allocated to the Tsukinomiyako Nuclear Weapons Plant, a mothballed nuclear weapons production site that legally does not exist, which also happened to be the only one of its kind in the nation.

It would appear that Sazanami is completely unaware Renea hasn't produced a new nuclear device in over half a century, and failed to reactivate the plant before creating the edict that funded it.

The money ended up being sent anyway because the treasury also just assumed that it still exists, but unable to find an address to send the money to, it was diverted into the Prefectural Bank of Tsukinomiyako. Assuming the money was for the request they had sent in 7 months ago, the funds were allocated to the Department of Health's office in the prefecture.

Upon realizing this, Sazanami has addressed the Renean people publically.

"I am reeling in embarassment after the budget mixup that has occurred recently. The humiliating mistake has sent 2.1 trillion Youmyons in defense funds to the public healthcare sector, and believe me, a public hospital is the last place I wanted to see that money go. It was a grave error, and there is no one to blame but myself for such a catastrophic mistake. While we have recovered most of the funds since, it will never serve to truly rectify this mistake, and I am truly sorry for betraying the trust of the Renean people who have placed me in this office."

-Vice-President Sazanami Mio (Mio Sazanami for you international nerds)

The military has stated that it will never financially recover from this.
