We think two weeks is going to be great - We'd like to remind everyone, after all, that this AAR has a limited length and that we're not intending to play it to the finish (basically, this is impossible - You can't imagine the workload on us to keep this running; In a week the forums grew to 1.000+ posts which we all read one by one, that's excluding all our tips and comments, the PM answering, modding the updates and actually WRITING the AAR :D).

Two weeks won't be as short as you think it'll be - We intend on keeping a high pace of updates, so things will fly by fast. Basically, every update ends with Issues Facing the government, and as soon as the government answers we start on the next update.

Well, we thought it would look bad if we presented the shadow cabinet directly after the election, would make us look like bad losers. Also, as stated, better not letting the government know which people they'd have to debate in advance.

Unfortunately that means that I couldn't be able to lead our nation if we would win either one of the next two elections - except for the weekends. :(

Oh good, now that does make us electable :p ;)

If FINP gets the most votes in our coalition in the next elections too, I'd make quaazi the Vice President and let him run France during the weeks. I'd do it on weekends. :cool:

But maybe we shouldn't yet talk about the outcome of the next elections, when the last ones just ended 4 hours ago.

LOL, why Americans did right after Obama.

We as the opposition can post bills as well right?

Okay first bill:

game length 4 weeks? Yes or No? :rofl:

(just kidding...but still we could settle this democratic, sorry TRP but this randomness pur sang :p)

Nevertheless, we will keep on fighting in the opposition, but when will the new government be ready, and when do the 2 weeks start counting? Right after elections or, after formation of the government...

Backroom scheming can be done where it belongs - In the game forums Backroom (no seriously, we made a private forum called Backroom :D)

And we're afraid we're not going to let anyone vote on game length, this AAR is entirely on our terms. Admitted, there is no sane way we could be doing this if it wasn't vacation for me right now, today I spent 4h30 working on La Republique, which is insane in any working week :eek:. So we'll keep up a hefty pace, keep it interesting, go hard and finish fast, because it's just impossible to keep up this amount of work

Announcing the new cabinet in a sec

What is the policy of the new government?

Tim

The new government has ousted itself as a strong Leftist but democratic coalition, France will be called a Left Wing Radical state from now on. As for their policies, no idea, that's what we'll figure out the coming days we guess :D

Issues facing the government
Issues marked with a ! have top priority


- Crisis in the Far East: Mao's communists have launched a full-scale assault on the Imperialist Qing Clique. Germany has already pledged her support for the Qing, while other friendly socialist states are sending reinforcements to Mao's aid. What is France's stance on the matter?

- Rightists fleeing France: In a move of popular sentiment after their electoral defeat, many Rightist parties have called for an evacuation of France to the Right-Autocratic state of National France. The government may decide to restrict their movement, or let them go freely. Be warned though, among these rightists are many officers and militarymen who could bolster the colonies in the event of future conflicts.

- Economy in decline(!): France's resource base is dwindling. To fuel our industrial expanse, the country is in dire need of resources like rubber, steel, imported coal and other valuables. The economic crisis that hit Berlin is lowering international trade everywhere, which may make it extremely difficult to solve this urgent problem. The Ministry of Economy and Ministry of Foreign Affairs must look for potential trading partners as soon as possible.

- The Orléans Military Treaties: The Treaties of Orléans are forbidding us to train an army larger than 20 divisions, or any form of credible air force or navy. It is up to the government to decide if it desires not to aggravate Germany, or to begin an agressive remilitarisation campaign, aimed at increasing our defence capabilities against Germany and our global power projection.

- Intelligence: The French Secret Service is ready for command by the Prime Minister. The cabinet must decide what they wish to focus on: Stealing foreign technologies, sabotaging foreign industry, attempting to coup nations, etc...



Issues facing the Assembly
Issues facing the assembly are issues the Assembly needs to vote on, like build queues or new laws. The government has no significant power over the parliament in these issues, a series of suggestions are presented and then the suggestions are presented as bills to vote on

- Technologies: France must decide in which fields it wishes to focus research-wise, which military doctrines to adopt and what type of army to build


- Build queues: the parliament must decide how much of the IC budget they wish to free up for industry, military, navy, air force, infrastructure works. There is an available 100IC for production to divide.

-----------------​

@Tuore: Not exactly, we set up the Backroom to follow party permission masks; so that includes all right parties (of which neither is in the government, so yeah, pretty much)

On the issues facing the assembly: These are issues everyone can decide about, opposition and government. We suggest you guys debate and come up with some suggestions first, after that we can vote on the bills

I knew our liberation act would pay out: now it became a real, official issue to the government!
By the way, shouldn't the rightist fleeing be a top priority thing? From the thread, my own post:

However, the FINP leadership now announces that no further anti-government actions are made before the new government has posted its new program.

I think they should deal with it quite quickly.

Assembly votes: I vote for increased research in the nuclear experiments section of our technology projects. It is vital, because then we create a psychological "fear to attack" to our neighbours.

For production, I vote for the idea that we should first build IC heavily. Once we can afford a large production queue, I suggest that we construct a large military in one go - 30 divisions or more at the same time should be sufficient. We would break the military limit set by the peace treaty, but we would have something to defend with.

Yeah, it doesn't get a veto in since it doesn't involve something random like armed revolution or something. But anyhow, I'm logging off for the day, this was the most hectic authAARing day I ever did methinks. This thread grew 200 posts in twelve hours, I answered somewhat 60 PMs, another 12 on AARland, and in the meanwhile went to vote in the Belgian real-life elections (Flemish separatists won :mad:).

Good night to all!
Vince
