Thread: What is represented by Regency council in the Administrative Republic?

  1. #1

    What is represented by Regency council in the Administrative Republic?

    To me it seems counter-intuitive that there can be a Regency council in the Administrative Republic. Assuming that 'Regency council' is just an unfortunate term, what its equivalent in game play terms represents? Was there something like that historically? I would think if Republic has no ruler, someone would just get elected.

    Hmm did you get regency council yourself (ruler died) or do you have one at game start? Cuz there should be no regencies in republics, unless you mistook an Administrative Monarchy for Administrative Republic.

    You can get regency council right from the start (for example with Aachen - which is rather unusual "nation" in any case). At the next election date you can elect a real ruler.

    I don't see anything along those lines in Aachen history for that period of time

    An interim government is frequently organized following a revolution or sudden death, when there has not been time to nominate, designate, or elect a government formally. Such a government may also be called a "provisional government"

    May not be the term used in Aachen History but Interim is generally the term used.

    So you are in fact talking about "regency council" from the start date right?

    Well thats not exactly a regency, like the one you have in monarchy. Its just a place holder until you have elections.

    Whoever added those countries probably didnt do research or couldnt find information on rulers (since its not always simple to find who the "ruler" was).

    Shouldn't election happen rather soon in this case?

    It doesn't sound like the situation that should last for 4 years though...

    Switzerland also begins with a regency despite being a republic. I find it hard to believe It's anything other than an oversight. A pain is what it is.
