Hello,

This is to inform you that the inter-regional role-play called The Global Roleplay Organization is now ready.

  • If some nations in your region are interested, please request an embassy.

  • For now there is only a modern role-play. We can open other role-plays if some people are interested. Make suggestions!

  • We are looking for people to become RP Moderators either in the modern role-play or in new role-plays. Apply for the job!

  • Read our How to Join guide and submit your application if you are interested.

Thank you,

Spanelsko sees the word "Liberty, Democratic and Alliance" proceeds to have a total mental breakdown at such terms, after few hours of autistic screeching and a lot of alcohol Spanelsko returns from the floor.

May this embassy have positive effect on our relations.

Hello everyone, I hope you're all well.

I'm thinking about restructuring my government, and I have some questions regarding legislatures.
Are three-year parliamentary terms too short? What is a better length? Do you think term limits for the premiership would work in a parliamentary system? Are upper houses worth having? In an MMP Parliament, like those in New Zealand and Germany, what is a good ratio between Electorate and List/party seats? Bouncing off of that, are there any legislatures where there are two types of members with differing titles based on how they were elected but are otherwise equal? With that, I have two titles I want to run by you guys, Governess and Vicereine (I chose the 'feminine' forms purposefully). If in a duo parliament, Governess would be used for members representing electorates, and Vicereine would be used for list/party members. What are your thoughts? Finally, which name for a district/electorate do you like more, commune or domain?

And one last question regarding the judiciary. What is the best way to, or how do you, structure a supreme court?

I appreciate your feedback.

Abolish all human rights, establish dictatorship under 1 great man/women and give people no trials, as all judges should just listen to you anyway - Iberian way

In regards to parliamentary terms, before the Fixed Terms Parliament Act passed in the UK to make it 5 years, a regular term of parliament typically lasted 4 years so I would go with that. I think 3 is too short but I think 5 is a little too long.

I don't know how other parliamentary systems work around the world but here in the UK there are no term limits on how many times a prime minister can be elected. I think term limits are more a characteristic of presidencies. Ultimately I think its up to voters. If they want to keep electing the same prime minister and that person commands the confidence of the parliament, I see no reason why they should be compelled to step down because of arbitrary term limits.

I would say an upper house is worth having if your country has a big population. Although then you need to figure out how much power the upper house has. Does it hold equal power to the lower house? Can the lower house override the upper as the Commons does the Lords in the UK?

What do you mean by electorates and list/party members? Wouldn't both a Governess and Viceriene represent voters? Here in Scotland, every person is represented by one constituency MSP who is voted in using First Past the Post and also by 8 regional MSPs who are elected through a list seat using a PR system. The only distinction is one is called a constituency MSP and the others are called list MSPs. Both have equal standing but many sneer at list MSPs for not being able to get elected on their own merit, instead being elected because the party put them there.

I personally prefer domain to commune.

The Supreme Court is a tough one. I would say maybe 6 or 7 judges who earn their position through their legal expertise rather than being elected or appointed. They should serve for a limited time instead of it being a life appointment.
