  1. In a surprise move, Wibilla Konba withdrew his control over the cities and wishes to negotiate with the Brawandi Central Government's President. As a result, the interest of the Enutrofi government fades, but as a statement from Supervisor Ivan says, he wishes to observe these negotiations. "We wish to know more of what the government of Brawandi can do to fix the situation, supplying what these cities, among others, need to continue functioning. Konba has perhaps gone about the wrong way to address the paper-thin spreading of the Brawandi government, but we are interested in how this shall be addressed, and wish to send a crew of diplomats to monitor the situation. They will be unarmed, and there exclusively for observation." Rumor has spread from within Brawandian borders that one of the Enutrofi military bases close to the border has become more active lately, but no further proof of this is available.
  2. That took me so long to write that it timed me out. That last post was obviously from me, Ivan.
  3. The Eastern Federation of Enutrof is monitoring the situation closely. The enormous nation of Brawandi is in a state of chaos, the government has fallen to anarchy. "Democracy" seems a simply tossed around term, but the land is virtually lawless. The Federation's position on the seizure remains unknown to other nations. Their official statement is as follows: From Ivan, Supervisor of the Federation of Enutrof: "The government seems to have lost it's grip on the nation, and we are monitoring it's border with utmost interest, as such a gargantuan nation has attracted a large amount of business from the Federation. The value of the Brawandian pound is plummetting as anarchy envelopes cities not 100 miles from the capitol. We are not sure if the government, or what there is left of one, can retake the seized cities. Investigative units from Enutrof are currently corresponding with the insurrection leader, Wiblilla Konba."
  4. I completely agree on sensible, updated regulations, mostly to keep the workers having a say, without having either worker union or employer having 100% control. I dislike archaeic regulations, and excessive amounts of regulations that ironically restrict the business to the point where they start being unable to deal with worker demands, and need assistance from the government, which raises income tax... a mean little circle there. Of course, that's just a very simplistic model, and one to use in more extreme cases. At any rate, a european union is a great step, I agree. Regions are still very split culturally and economically, which makes unification rough, but this small step is very nice, as long as it doesn't take on the habits of the UN and never do anything except talk sometimes .

    A forum!!!

    I thank you greatly for the creation of such a board, and hope many participate in it. I do enjoy discussing political ideologies.
  6. I extend a warm thanks to all that have joined this place of communication. Here we can discuss political ideals in a friendly manner. Be forewarned, I am an idealistic ruler of a pro-business corporate Federation. In reality, all important decisions go through me, and I keep this country progressing, striving to keep the populace holding important attributes such as great intelligence, personal integrity, honor, respect, willpower, and a striving to keep the world a frontier of scientific and technological advancement. The responsibilities of my government spending are largely poured into the education system and the environment, things that business generally stays out of. Our criminal sorting/rehabilitation program also recieves a large amount of funding from the government, but as the people grow in their collective ethnic consciousness, the society itself will discourage crime more than a punitive/rehabilitative government could, and less money will be spent in this area due to the natural decrease in crime (right now, with our criminal policy, crime is nearly nonexistant, and criminals are largley shunned by the populace, and they often leave the country in shame). Well, that is my introduction. Again, thanks for participating in this board. I wish your countries well. -Ivan, Lord of Enutrof
  7. An amusing history indeed. Welcome to the region. We hope your stay is enjoyable. -Ivan, Lord of Enutrof
  8. I had hoped that an open topic would draw replies, my friend. So you approve of the majority of the regulations? I see the benefits of such regulation, but my love of freedom leaves that trend having a bad taste in my mouth. The governments in Europe are large and have a strong grip due to the active political support (assisted greatly by the majority-pleasing media) of the employed, who outnumber the employers. The income tax in those areas seem utterly abysmal to me, and if you check out my second nation here, you will see how I would more prefer to run a country, where my people can reach as high as they have the knowledge and willpower to do. Naturally such a system has drawbacks, such as the crime rate, but all in all, being able to develop oneself to full potential economically is much more valuable to me than being "protected" from failing by the government whether I want to be protected or not. I do not believe in welfare or protected jobs (for the most part). I know from experience that if one is guaranteed to not be fired, performance decreases noticeably. The tenure system in teaching is a rotten idea, as teachers should be the best of the best and have a consequence to bad performance. After working so long, it takes a felony crime to be fired! Retirement is also something that should not be a government's job to monitor, again for the most part. At least there should not be a system where the current generation pays for the older one, which is generally what is happening now. How should retirement work? The best retirement plans ever are ones in which the retiree and the employing body both benefit without forced payment from the current generation... 401k plans and the like! The business gets "now" money to invest and grow with, and the worker gets a substantial pension at the age of retirement, often that can pay for the rest of the retiree's life! If the worker uses even the slightest care in where they spend their money, pay going into a 401k is possible. Roth IRA accounts are also a boon, again this can be used to completely pay for retirement without a strain on the current generation. Lack of knowledge or laziness is not an excuse to siphon money from those who are currently working. Thriving business, with slight regulation, has proven to increase the quality of life for a society as a whole. Without money to be made, innovations in technology go down the drain, especially that in medicine. Ever single competitive med tech company out there has an office and labs in the US, because they're allowed to make money to grow their research. If the USA pulled a Europe and socialized medicine, EVERYONE would suffer for it, and hundreds of thousands of lives could be affected in a negative manner as only generic companies would keep existing, as the government, believe it or not, buys the cheapest drugs available on such a scale that the major drug companies would go out of business. Then no new medical innovations would happen, and the world of medicine would be at a standstill. Yet who are in support of socialized medicine? The senior citizens! And these would be hurt most by it in the long run! Blasted media. Always focused on the "now" and not the future, not the full implications of policy made today. Beware "now" only policy, such as business restrictions. Trade is what grows technology, it's what makes the world go round and allows progress to happen. Sure, certain policies may make certain people happy now, but the programs will FALL APART once the government runs out of money/resources to continue such programs. What is predicted to happen after that is a reversal of government structure. The democracy will have proven to be taken advantage of by certain classes of people, and so a more restrictive form of government would rise out of it. That is, if a government ever does manage to collapse due to irresponsible policy and putting social, commercial, and technological progress in a stasis. That probably won't happen for a long time, we may never even live to see it. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't care about it.
  9. Some people seem to have it out for business. A governmental trend lately is the restriction/regulation of business, especially in the European nations. Why do you think this is, and do you believe business needs be regulated to this point?
