Scotia Flow In Detail (sort of) - The Election
After months of preparations and convincing, four candidates have been selected for the role of General Secretary to replace long-serving Magnus Kirk, the Mayor of Twatt, the capital city.
The candidates were:
1. Oliver Cottwall, former Defense Minister, conservative Gravonist
2. Jeffrey Daunton, new to politics, Gravonist, wants to join GAUNTLET
3. Thomas Ross, hardcore capitalist with a love for democracy
4. Gregory Hammerton, nephew of former Governor, radical carsonist
Candidate 1: Oliver Cottwall
Former defense minister, conservative Gravonist who wants to continue the path the Scotia Flow has went on after the coup in 1934. Popular amongst the masses.
Candidate 2: Jeffrey Daunton
A young, bit more "progressive?" Gravonist new to politics who wants to basically simp for Finland and join GAUNTLET (which would violate the neutrality the nation is currently maintaining a bit). Somewhat popular.
Candidate 3: Thomas Ross
Formerly American businessman, co-owns one of Scotia-Cola factories. Hardcore capitalist, despises Gravonists. Some like him, even though he would probably switch out the Governor if he had the chance. (Not that it would matter much, the role of the Governor is becoming more and more representative)
Candidate 4: Gregory Hammerton
Nephew of the former Governor who is still a bit pissed about the coup. Bit of a radical carsonist, likes the Russians and dreams about expanding Scotia Flow. His popularity is right about tied with Thomas Ross, his supporters being mainly veterans of the 1920 uprising.
75 of Scotia Flow's most prominent businessmen, government officials (including most of the former ministers), high-ranking military officers and Mayors (aka the Elite) gathered in late May to select the new General Secretary. The debate went so far that one of Thomas Ross' supporters had to be escorted out by police officers for pulling out his vioently American-looking large caliber revolver and almost firing. Finally, on May 29th, the votes were counted. Oliver Cottwall won with 36 votes followed by, surprisingly, Thomas Ross with 20 votes, Jeffrey Daunton with 15 and (we've kind of expected this) Gregory Hammerton with 4 votes (only 5,33% of the vote).
OOC (kinda): How do elections work
A Short Backstory
A small backstory to Nova Rossija, originally being the German Colony of Kenya with a small Slavic population mainly of Poles and some Russian settlers. Then later it was Anti Communists of all classes from Russia and later the rest of Eastern Europe especially areas under Communist Totalitarianism, many of whom were mainly Ukrainian. Kenya soon became a hotspot for Refugees who wanted to escape struggles in Europe but either couldnt pay or didnt want to go to North America. Over time Eastern Europeans especially Ukrainians and Russians, but also others such as Belarusians even some south slavs such as Serbs and Bulgarians.
A black Vauxhall, model 14-6, turned left onto Charing Cross Road and troddled along midst the AEC Regent II -type double-decker buses and Austin FX3 taxicabs. Even though an ordinary family car, the Vauxhall turned heads here in Central London, where normally few private vehicles were seen: the City and its adjoining areas had been reserved for pedestrians, cyclists, and public transport. The two people at the back of the car paid no attention to the people staring at them.
"What would you like to eat tonight, Clementine?"
"Well, I do believe a small celebration is in order, don't you?"
"Most certainly, my love! What would you suggest?"
"How about coq au vin? Mrs Landemare does wonders with cock, as you well know."
"Coq au vin it is, then. Actually it's quite suitable, as I've heard the house was originally built as a part of a cockpit. For cockfighting, you see, in the 1700s."
"Is that so? People were such savages in those days."
"Oh, perhaps chocolate cake for afters."
The Vauxhall turned right and drove through a massive wrought iron gate that was then quickly shut. The vehicle came to a halt in front of a large house with a black wooden door. As the passengers stepped out of the car and approached the door, it was opened from the inside. A man wearing a butler uniform bowed deep:
"Mr and Mrs Churchill, welcome to Downing Street."
Politics change: Conservative becomes the ruling party. Replace George Orwell (unpopular utopist: stability -10%, counter-intelligence +25%) with Winston Churchill (conservative grandee: stability +10%, weekly support for Democratic +0.05%)
NEXT TO THE FIREPLACE OF THE BEDROOM OF THE GREAT LEADER OF MALTA WHICH IS AN ISLAND LOCATED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MEDITERRANEAN WHICH IN OF ITSELF IS AN ISLAND OF WATER SURROUNDED BY A SEA OF LAND ONE SIDE OF LAND IS CALLED EUROPE WHICH IS A BULGING LANDMASS FROM THAT OF ASIA WHICH IS ITSELF AN ISLAND AS WELL SURROUNDED BY A SEA OF WATER, THE SON OF THE GREAT LEADER OF MALTA ZACHARY DELORENZO SITS ON THE GREAT LEADER'S LAP.
"My god father, the world forgot we existed!"
"And this is a problem why?"
"It's no fun, we were always meddling in everyone's affairs; even in places we shouldn't even be!"
"We still meddle about, just in our own affairs. Have you not attended the stoning the other day?"
"Well yes father, that was good fun and all, but it hardly gives that burning feeling in the loins."
"You don't seem to understand a really simple concept."
"What concept is it now, father? Printing more wafers? Burning more witches-or at least insubordinate housewives?"
"No son, we haven't been making noises because we haven't a need to. Malta is the king of the Med."
"I'm pretty sure America is."
"I will fcking beat you again, don't you bloody push me."
"That's the spirit dad! Now can I have Jordan for Christmas?"
"I'll sleep on it. You are asking for a lot, prey."
"But father, all you must do is assemble the inquisition! Nobody expects the Maltese Inquisition!"
! THE GREAT LEADER OF MALTA SPEAKS !
"Thank you all for coming! It's so wonderful to see you've all gathered to hear me speak after such a long time of social distancing. Social distancing which had cured the nation of the coof. Yes, the horrid coof which cause mild discomfort. Anyhow, we have not gathered to talk about the coof, that was yesterday's news. Well that and the caveman burnings. I have gathered you all to announce something very special, something that will bring great pleasure and prosperity to us all! We are getting new islands!"
The audience applauded loudly, many of whom began flailing their arms about in eagerness. Some of the buggers even began foaming at the mouth-they were so excited! They didn't need to even know the name of the islands to fall into an orgasmic frenzy.
"Alright, alright, calm down people, no need to expose the rabies epidemic to the world stage. Now what was I saying? Oh yeah, Balearic Islands? We got them. In case you people have lived under a rock, the Balearic Islands are the lands of cheap wine, cheap sights, and even cheaper women! But it is rather clean, and cleanliness is the first step towards civilization. We got it from the yanks for 3 chickens and an imported belly dancer from... wherever belly dancers come from. Needless to say, I stole those islands like I stole the German navy. Soon, after we civilize the natives, it will be open for trade and commerce!"
The crowd was in such a joy that men, women, and children began fainting in ecstasy. Soon enough, the only conscious individual still standing was the great leader himself, who remained standing tall behind his podium.
"Now that you all are fainted as planned, I will now announce the actual important news. Lebanon has been a pimple on the face of the Maltese empire for far too long. Each passing day, we are confronted with a multitude of unending reports of crimes against good Christians at the hands of the Muslims! This cannot go on for any longer! We must unite as the empire of God and smite the menace, and then assimilate them into the empire where they belong. Thank you ladies and gentlemen, you may regain consciousness at your own leisure, and pick up your gift bags on the way out."
The Königliche Mausoleum and Burning April Monument
Early this morning, Volksmonarch Gazert von Anhalt-Aplotzkii I cut the ribbon for the official opening of the The Königliche Mausoleum and Burning April Monument. The Burning April Monument is a statue honoring those who died in the nuclear bombings of Leipzig and Berlin, with the monument itself existing in two twin parts, one residing in Leipzig and one residing in Berlin. The The Königliche Mausoleum as well has finished construction, being opened in Neu Aschersleben to honor those who have served in the German armed forces, as well as now becoming the final resting place for the deceased of the royal family.
A Royal Wedding
The morning breaks nicely with a soft dew on the grass in late December, the sun kissing the walls of the winter castle at Aschersleben, casting shadows over the artillery blasts from the war, now repaired but with the shapes kept in as a memory. As brunch approaches, the Crown Princess, General Lana von Anhalt Aplotzkii sits down in her military uniform, a small mahogany box in hand. Her girlfriend, Wilhelmina von Richtofen enters the room with a smile. "What's with the uniform?" She says, giving her a kiss. "There's going to be a wedding soon and I wanted to get dressed properly" said the Crown Princess. "Oh? Some relative? Who is getting married?" Wilhelmina asked, sitting across from Lana. Lana stood up and then got on one knee in front of Wilhelmina, opening the box to show a ring. "You?" She asked, blushing. Almost before she finished the short sentence, she was tackled in a hug by Wilhelmina, attacking her with kisses. "Oh course! Yes!"
The wedding has been scheduled to be in December of 1947, with invitations sent to a series of nations.
A Kingdom for a Horse
As the rise of the Latin American state of Imperial San Carnio has begun, information about the state has reached the ears of the Volksmonarch, including the fact that the San Carnese government and society function along similar lines to the German one. With this information, it has been decided that San Carnio has the full support of the German government, provided certain terms are excepted, such as the condition that San Carnio will not engage in military action against the Federal Union of America.
A letter is sent to San Carnio, asking if support would be welcomed.
