      Cyber Nations Forum Rules   07/03/2016

      Cyber Nations Forum Rules  
      In the process of registering on this forum, all players--including you--agreed to accept these terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of Invision Power Board. In doing so you essentially signed an electronic contract pledging to have read the rules and TOS and agreeing to follow the rules and TOS as written. It is your continued responsibility to read, follow, and keep up-to-date with the CN rules.
      The following are basic guidelines for use of the Cyber Nations community forum. Anyone caught disobeying these guidelines will be issued a warning. The forum staff works on a five warn limit policy unless the situation calls for more appropriate action ranging from a verbal warning to a double warn and suspension to an immediate ban, etc.   Just because something is not listed specifically here as illegal does not mean it's allowed. All players are expected to use common sense and are personally responsible for reading the pinned threads found in the Moderation forum. Questions regarding appropriateness or other concerns can be sent via PM to an appropriate moderator.   A permanent ban on the forums results in a game ban, and vice versa. Please note that the in-game warn system works on a "three strikes you're out" policy and that in-game actions (including warnings and deletions) may not be appealed. For more information regarding in-game rules please read the Cyber Nations Game Rules.   1.) First Warning
      2.) Second Warning
      3.) Third Warning (48 hour suspension at the forum)
      4.) Fourth Warning (120 hour suspension at the forum)
      5.) Permanent Ban   Game Bans and Forum Bans
      If you receive a 100% warn level on the forums, you will be subject to removal from the forums AND have your nation deleted and banned from the game at moderator(s) discretion.   If you are banned in the game, then you will be banned from the forums.   Process of Appeals
      Players may not appeal any in-game actions. This includes cheat flags, canceled trades, content removals, warn level increases, nation deletion, and bans from the game.   Players may appeal individual forum warnings. You may only appeal a warning if you can show with evidence that it was unwarranted or unduly harsh. If a reasonable amount of time has passed (no less than one month and preferably longer) in which you have demonstrated reformed behavior than you may request a warning level reduction. Wasting staff time with inappropriately filed reports and/or unfounded appeals will result in a warn level raise. Repeat incidences will result in a ban from the forum.   Bans are permanent. Banned players may appeal to the Senior Staff if they believe grounds exist (very, very rare) in which they state their case with evidence and why explain why they believe they deserve to be allowed back into Cyber Nations. This process is not quick and the investigation into cases may last three minutes or three weeks or more depending on the individual situation.   The only place where discussion of moderator action is acceptable is in the appropriate Moderation forum. Posting commentary on or disagreement with moderator action elsewhere will result in a warn level raise.   Posting
      All posts must be in English. Common phrases in other languages will be allowed so long as they are translated upon request. Foreign languages are permitted in signatures and avatars, however.   Certain areas of the forum require you to have a nation in either standard CN or CN:TE. If you have...   A SE and a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are allowed to post in either SE or TE areas of the forum. You must have your CN:TE nation name listed in your profile to post in the CN:TE section of the forum.
      Just an SE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your SE nation or ruler name. You are not allowed to post in any TE areas of the forum.
      Just a TE nation: You get one forum account. Your forum account name must match your TE nation name or ruler name. Your must have your CN:TE nation name listed correctly in your profile. You are not allowed to post in any of the SE areas. You are allowed to post in the water cooler, question center and the moderation forums. Other than that, all your posts need to stay in the TE area.   Flame/Flamebait/Trolling
      Flaming is expressing anger or lobbing insults at a person/player rather than a character, post, idea, etc. Flamebait are posts that are made with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking another user into rule-breaking. Trolling is submitting posts with the aim of targeting/harassing/provoking a specific group into rule-breaking. Forum users should not be participating in any of these, and doing so will result in a warning.   Topic Hijacking
      Hijacking is forcing the current thread discussion off of the original topic and usually results in spam or flame from either side. Forum users found hijacking threads will be given a warning.   Repeat Topics
      One topic is enough. Repeat topics will be locked, removed, and the author given a warning. Users found creating repeat topics after others were locked by staff will receive a warn raise.   Joke Topics
      Topics created as a joke are prohibited. Joke topics will be locked and the author warned. This includes topics in which the author is making an announcement “for” another in-game alliance. Humorous threads are permitted; it is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what is merely satire and what is actually a joke topic.   Spam
      Spam is defined as creating posts or topics containing only contentless material of any kind. Users found spamming will receive a warning. Examples include (but are in no way limited to) posts containing nothing but smilies, "+1", "QFT", "this" any other one/few-word contentless combination, joke threads, or posts containing quotes and anything that counts as spam by itself. Adding words to a post with the express intent of avoiding a spam warn will result in a warning. These posts and other similar contributions have no substance and hence are considered spam. Posts of "Ave", "Hail" or any other one word congratulatory type are acceptable as one word posts. Emoticon type posts such as "o/" without accompanying text is still not allowed. Posts containing only images are considered spam, unless the image is being used in the Alliance Politics sub-forum and then the actual text of the image be placed into spoiler tags.   Posting in All Caps
      Posting large amounts of text in capital letters is not permitted. Use discretion when using your caps lock key.   No Discussion Forums
      There are forums that are not for discussion and are used strictly for game and forum staff to address certain issues, bugs, etc. The following forums are not open to discussion: Report Game Abuse, Report Forum Abuse, and Warn/Ban Appeals. Only moderators and the original poster may post in a thread, period, with absolutely no exceptions. Users found disobeying this guideline will receive an automatic warning for each offense.   Moderation Forums
      All Moderation forums also maintain pinned threads clearly marked as required reading before posting. Failure to read and follow required reading and procedure in a Moderation forum will result in a warning. Examples include posting requests in the wrong forum, failure to include all required information in posts, etc. The standard of conduct and enforcement of rules in Moderation forums is strictly enforced and the repercussions for disregarding rules or disrespecting staff are harsh. Read the pinned threads before posting and you will be fine.   Namecalling
      Excessive or unqualified namecalling is not allowed in IC forums; namecalling should also never make up the bulk of a post. Namecalling is prohibited entirely in all OOC forums.   Filtered Words
      Any attempts to evade the word filter will result in a warning. The terms we have filtered are filtered for a reason and no excuse for evasion will be accepted. Filter evasion includes censoring or deliberately misspelling part of a filtered word.   If you link to a website, image, video, etc., containing profanity, please post a disclaimer before the link. The moderation staff may still remove links if the content is deemed too obscene.   Harassment
      Forum users should not be stalking/harassing others on the forums. Anyone found stalking players from topic to topic, etc., will be subject to a warning.   Gravedigging
      Gravedigging is not allowed anywhere on the forums. Gravedigging is "bumping" old topics which haven't been active for quite some time (four to seven days is standard depending on the nature of the thread and how many pages back it had been pushed before bump). Your warn level will be raised if you are caught doing this.   The Suggestion Box and Black Market forums are partial exceptions to this rule. Suggestions/ideas in that forum may be posted in regardless of age PROVIDING that the reviving post contains constructive, on-topic input to the original topic or discussion. Black Market threads may be bumped by the author if there is new information about the offered exchange (i.e open aid slots). In the Player Created Alliances forum it will not be considered gravedigging to bump a topic up to a year old, so long as the alliance in question still exists and it is not a duplicate thread.   Signatures
      Those who fail to read and abide by these rules will have their signatures removed and receive a warning.   You may have only one image per signature which may not exceed the maximum size of 450 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. You may have no more than 8 lines of text and text size cannot exceed size 4. Each quote-tag, image and empty line count as a line.   Inappropriate Images and Other Disallowed Images
      Images that are sexual in nature or have sexual overtones are prohibited. It is up to the discretion of the moderation staff to determine what constitutes sexual overtones. Depictions of kissing are permissible provided there are no sexual implications. Images depicting female nipples are prohibited outright.   Making “ASCII art” is prohibited regardless of the image depicted.   Using photos or likenesses of another Cyber Nations player is also prohibited.   Drug References
      Images and posts promoting illegal drug use are prohibited. References to drugs are acceptable only if the moderation staff deems that it is not promoting the use thereof.   Obscene Content and/or "Account Suicide"
      Anyone caught posting vulgar material (including but in no way limited to pornography, "gross," "tubgirl," "lemonparty," photos depicting RL illegal acts such as violence towards humans or animals, child pornography, death photos, and any other obscene or offensive material in either text form or picture form) will have their account(s) permanently banned, and their ISP contacted along with any other applicable internet and RL authorities.   OOC Threats / Revealing Personal Information
      An OOC threat of any nature will equate to an automatic ban from the game and forums. Likewise, the publishing of personal information of any other player without their explicit permission is grounds for warning and/or a ban from the game depending on the severity of the offense.   Death Threats / Death Wishes
      A death threat or a death wish of any nature (including but not limited to telling another player to commit suicide) will result in at very least a 40% warn level increase and 2 day suspension from the forums, with harsher punishments, including a complete ban from the forums and game, up to the discretion of the moderation staff.   Quoting Rulebreaking Posts
      Do not quote any post with obscene content or any other content that has to be removed by the moderation staff. Doing so makes it more difficult for the moderation staff to find and remove all such content and will result in a warn level increase. Putting rulebreaking posts of any kind in your signature is prohibited.   Forum Names
      With the exception of moderator accounts, all forum accounts must match up exactly with the ruler name or nation name of your in-game country. Those found not matching up will be warned and banned immediately. Forum account names may not be profane or offensive.   Multiple Forum Accounts
      With the exception of moderators, if you are caught with multiple forum accounts, the multiple account(s) will be banned, warn level raised, and your identity will be announced by a moderator to the CN community so rule-abiding players can take IC action against you. Multiple forum account offenders will receive a varying percentage warn level raise and/or a permanent ban on a case-by-case basis.   Posting For Other Players
      Posting for banned or suspended players is prohibited, as is posting for any person without a nation. This includes making warn and ban appeals on their behalf.   Imitation &. Impersonation
      Imitation in terms of this forum is mimicking the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in an attempt to be satirical or generally humorous. Impersonation in terms of this forum is copying the posting, avatar, or signature styles of another user in order to present the illusion that the person is in fact that user. Imitation is fine and can be quite funny. Impersonation is disruptive and is warnable. Please pay attention to the subtle difference between these two concepts.   A player may not impersonate another player by emulating the characteristics of someone else's past or present account in an attempt to harass, stalk, or flamebait. Creating a new forum account in an attempt to impersonate a standing account will result in deletion and banning without notice.   Any attempt at imitation and/or impersonation of moderators and game staff is strictly prohibited and will be met with harsh repercussions.   Avatars
      Size for avatars is limited by the forum mechanics, therefore there is no size issue for a user to worry about. Avatars must be in good taste, and any avatar containing a picture that is too violent, disgusting, sexually explicit, insulting to another player or staff member, etc. will be removed. Avatars that are potentially seizure inducing will not be permitted. Players may not "borrow" the avatars of any moderator past or present without permission.   Swastikas and Nazi Imagery
      The swastika may not be used in signatures or avatars. Pictures of swastika's are acceptable for use in the In Character (IC) sections of the roleplay forums, so long as its context is In Character, and not Out Of Character. Pictures of Hitler, mentioning of the Holocaust, etc... have no place in the roleplay forums, since these people and events existed in real life, and have no bearing or place in the Cyberverse. Other Nazi or SS imagery is forbidden in all forums.   Moderation Staff
      The revealing of the private identities of any Cyber Nations staffers past or present is strictly prohibited, and thus no speculation/accusation of identity is allowed. Doing so is grounds for moderator action against your account appropriate to the offense, including a full forum/game ban.   Claims of moderator bias should be directed to the highest level of authority--the Head Game & Forum Mod/Admin, Keelah. Claims of moderator bias without supporting evidence is grounds for a warning.   Blatant disrespect of the moderator staff is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to spoofing moderator accounts in any way, sig/avatar references, baiting, flaming, rude demands, mocking, attitude, and unsubstantiated claims of bias. They are volunteers hired to enforce the rules. If you have a problem with the way a moderator is enforcing the rules or the rules themselves please contact Keelah.   Attempting to use the moderation staff as a weapon by abusing the report system in an attempt to get another player warned or banned is strictly prohibited.   Do not ask about becoming or campaign to become a moderator. The moderators are drawn from CN membership but moderation positions are by invitation only. Asking to become one will substantially decrease your chances of ever being asked.   Aiding Rule Violators
      Any user found to know of a serious rule violation without reporting it to a game moderator (eg. knowledge of a user with multiple nations) will be given a warning or, in more serious cases, have their nation deleted.   Aiding Banned Players
      Any user found to be harboring, aiding or otherwise knowingly helping a banned user will be deleted. This includes knowing of their existence within the game without reporting it to the game-moderation staff.   Questionable Actions and Content
      The forum rules are not designed to cover every scenario. Any action that is seen to be counter-productive or harmful to the forum community may be met with moderator action against your account. The Cyber Nations Moderation Staff reserves the right to take action against your account without warning for any reason at any time.   Private Transactions
      Nation selling and other private transactions via such auction sites like eBay is against the Cyber Nations terms and conditions. While our moderators cannot control what people do outside of the game you are not allowed to promote such private exchanges on our forums without expressed permission from admin only. Anyone found to be engaging in such activity without permission will be banned from the game.   Advertising
      Advertising other browser games and forums is prohibited. Soliciting donations towards commercial causes is also prohibited. If you wish to ask for donations towards a charitable cause, please contact a moderator before doing so.   Extorting Donations
      Donations are excluded from any kind of IC payment. Anyone found extorting others for OOC payments will be warned in-game and/or banned.   Third Party Software
      Third party software is not allowed to be advertised on these forums by any means (post, signature, PM, etc). These programs can easily be used to put malware on the user's computer, and as such can cause huge security issues. Anybody who is caught spreading links to these will at the very least have their warning level increased.   Other Forum Terms & Rules   Please take a moment to review these rules detailed below.

The Communist International


Communist and socialist parties around the globe have been invited to send delegates to a new International to be had in the capital city of the new Democratic People's Republic of Guanwai, Mukden. It will be headed by Premier Zhang, who will also be - along with several other delegates - representing Guanwai at the congress. Among the topics discussed will be the current state of socialism, as well as how the interests of our movement can be furthered. Edited by Hereno

Gottlieb Nussenbaum, leader of the underground Alvonian Arbeiterpartei has arrived in Mukden. He has arrived at his hotel and is preparing for the conferences events with his translator.

 

Private

 

In reality, Nussenbaum was a spy for the Bundesnachrichtendienst. His mission was to infiltrate the conference and take notes on the attendees, to determine if Bolshevik tendencies were present in them and their party views. If so, and if Nussenbaum came back with his notes, the host nations of the parties would be subjected to increased BND surveillance.

To the government in Shanghai Chin Lang was a psycopath Communist who believed the people of Shanghai were destined to rule all of Asia. He had been called a terrorist on numerous occasions but no one had any evidence to support those claims so legally they could not touch him. However that did not stop them from sending various assasins after him which was why for the time being he decided to stay out of Shanghai but with the elections for the Shanghai Parliament coming up he needed to step up his game and prove to the world he was not a terrorist as others believed. His son Kai Lang was with him and right now was the public leader of the party in Shanghai while his father truely lead them in private from other parts of the world. He knew his father was being hunted by assasins and he didn't like his father's plan. "Are you sure it is a good idea for you to show yourself in public like this?"

 

"The people of Shanghai and the rest of Asia need to know that I will not stand idly by while the Imperialists ruin our once great Communist Empire and spread false accusations and rumors about me. It is time to stand up for what we believe in and if they do send an assasin after me than I shall go down as a martyr for our cause. Our people were destined to rule China and with the help of our Comrades here in Guanwai we can achieve that goal."

 

They would wait at their hotel until the meeting was ready to begin.

Given the fact that the Zapadnayan Socialist Party found communism to be 'incompatible with reality' and that the Communist party was not allowed to participate in politics there would not be a significant delegation from Zapadnaya. Instead the sole individual who would attend the conference would be Mr. Stefan Nikolov, the Deputy General Secretary of the Communist party. Out of an abundance of caution, Mr. Nikolov would register as an observer delegate.

When attempting to register, Mr. Nikolov would find that his request could not be granted. The Guanwai administrators informed him that there were no provisions for the allowance of observer delegates. While he would be welcome to attend and represent the Zapadnayan Communist Party, he could only do so as a general delegate.

Somewhat reluctantly, Stefan Nikolov registered as the delegate of the Zapadnayan Communist party.

A letter was sent to Comintern from the headquarters of the Social Democratic Party, the governing party of the Federation, asking whether parties of a more moderate, non-Marxist-Leninist-etc. persuasion were welcome at the conference. The current SDP government has shown signs of expanding social programs in the Federation while retaining a multiparty democratic system and steering away from either economic policy extreme as undesirable.

 

The Parti communiste du Québec, a regional party holding a sizable minority of seats in the South Quebec legislature and not registered at the federal level, has also expressed its interest in attending. PCQ was rather more left-wing than the SDP, and favored slowly shifting to an increased level of state-controlled enterprises, especially in the mining and arms industries. At the federal level, they tended to place their votes behind the SDP as the main center-left party, but in provincial affairs they were quite dissimilar in their goals.

A quick reply would indicate that democratic socialists as well as Marxist-Leninist(-Maoist) and anarchist groups are all invited to send representatives. However, the center-left social democratic parties would not find many allies at the International. Any party with the end-goal of eliminating capitalism is welcome.

PCQ and SDP each sent a representative to the conference. The SDP representative was James Luxembourg MP, representing the riding of Windsor West, South Ontario in the Federation Parliament. The PCQ representative was Celeste Monet, a member of the provincial legislature in South Quebec. They'd travel to the conference on a commercial flight; the same one, in fact.

The Polish People's Party is a very small organization. Though small, it has a great deal of support in certain academic circles. Even a few captain's of industry have been known to set a little aside for the Party's coffers on occasion when they needed large crowds of screaming protestors at their competition's gates. Most Poles have a certain repugnance for the People's Party due to the legacy left behind by the Soviet Occupation of Poland, but are willing to tolerate the existence of the party as a historical abberation.

 

No matter what the reasons for the Party still existing, a delegate would be put on a plane and sent to the meeting. Stanslaw Luncucki, a university graduate and aspiring writer, would be given a ticket and a pocket full of cash taken out of the Party's account with the National Bank of Poland.

 

Upon arrival he would rejoice at being in a People's Paradise and promptly take his seat at the meeting to get on with the business of spreading the revolution.

The International


NPC1.jpg


The delegates from parties around the world filed into the room and stood tall, with the Internationale playing in various languages so that all might hear it in their own (ooc: click the image). This would go on for about an hour, with the delegates becoming increasingly bored and wondering when the meeting would really begin. By the time it did, they would all be sitting down, many of them resorting to drawing stick figures of Marx and Engels in various hijinks on the papers they were supposed to be taking notes on. As it turns out, Communists are quite the artists, and by the time the delegation from Guanwai had entered the room, comic strips were being broadcast on a squeaky old overhead projector...
 

001.png


The delegates from Guanwai were not very impressed with the comic, although they knew they had a great gathering of leftists because they had somehow managed to procure an overhead projector in this day and age. The room fell silent as Premier Zhong walked in, went up to the podium, and began to speak...

[OOC: Part one of like 2-3. I'm really busy so you're gonna have to wait for the speech and discussion part.]

As the lecture went on Jackie became very bored and ended up helping the others with the comics and other fun stuff. They did notice his father died recently and gave him their condolences but honestly he didn't really care what they thought. His father was the one responsible for launching the first nukes at China starting the war and Jackie had no choice but to kill him to stop him from trying anything like that ever again. To some they might see Jackie as a hero if they knew the truth of what happened but others might not see it that way which was why he had to keep it a secret. So far everyone seemed to buy the story that it was a horrible accident and that how it needed to stay. He would take notes on the lecture when really important stuff came up but at this point he just wanted it to end.

Public

Robert has announced that he will attend the summit meeting be he also stated that he did not share the values and ideals of socialism nor communism but he does see the potential of it being economical."There is no easy way to say this but communism and Socialism  are both good choices of it being economical but at the same time it puts to much power into one person and it takes away for the peoples right to chose for themselves and leaves all of that power in the state." at that Robert boarded the plane to go and attend the meeting.

The almost hour long renditions of the Internationale combined with the continued delay, greatly annoyed Stefan Nikolov. For a moment, he regretted his decision to attend the conference and wondered if the consequences of his attendance would be worth the benefits. To pass the time until the conference began, Nikolov read a copy of Margaret Thatcher’s Biography.

Premier Zhang shuffled some papers on his podium as the cartoonists waddled hastily back to their seats. He grinned with confidence, looking up at an audience relieved to see him and eager to hear something of importance fall off of his tongue. Translators across the room readied themselves to begin translating in over a dozen languages, several of whom were "on loan" from Guanwai to help their comrades abroad who did not have anyone who spoke Mandarin.
 
"Greetings comrades, and thank you all for attending this international conference of Communists for the purposes of furthering the goal of revolution across the globe. In 1920, Comrade Lenin at his third international in the wake of the great Bolshevik uprising in the Russian Empire established twenty one conditions for admission to the international which laid out the Russians' plan to unite all workers of the world under the principles of democratic centralism. Through the legacy of Marx and Engels, with practical theoretical additions and development by Lenin, Stalin, and Mao, we seek to succeed where they failed. By learning from their mistakes, we will destroy the Khrushchevite pig-dog revisionists and their capitalist allies, avoid the great splits among the Communist parties of old which led to our division, and take the most developed theories of communism to their conclusions.
 
It is for this purpose that I lay before you a new set of conditions inspired by the work of millions of Marxist-Leninists who have fought and died for their freedom. Those parties which agree to these conditions in the next few days will be allowed much benefit at the expense of all of the peoples of Guanwai who are ready and willing to unite the proletarians of all nations under the vanguard of the Democratic People's Republic which hosts you today."
 
At this time, papers were handed out to all attendees with a set of conditions authored by Premier Zhang himself. They were permitted to leave to their hotel rooms whenever they wished, but would need to communicate their intentions to the Guanwai politburo before being given access to the airport to leave.
 

 

Nine Conditions of Admission to the Communist International

 
1. All propaganda and agitation must bear a really communist character and correspond to the program and decisions of the Communist International.
 
2. Every organization that wishes to affiliate to the Communist International must regularly and methodically remove reformists from their ranks.
 
3. Systematic and methodical agitation is necessary in the countryside, and all parties to the International recognize this importance.
 
4. Every party that wishes to belong to the Communist International must systematically and persistently develop communist activities within the trades unions, consumer co-operatives, and other mass worker's organizations.
 
5. Parties that wish to belong to the Communist International have the obligation to subject the personal composition of their parliamentary factions to review.
 
6. The parties belonging to the Communist International must be built on the basis of the principle of democratic centralism.
 
7. Mao Zedong Thought will be recognized by all parties as the most recent development of Marxist-Leninist thought.
 
8. All decisions of the Congresses of the Communist International and decisions of its Executive Committee are binding on all parties belonging to the Communist International.
 
9. Those party members who fundamentally reject the conditions and Theses laid down by the Communist International are to be expelled from the party.

"Comrade Anatole, from the Alaskan Revolutionary Socialist Party. I would like to dispute points three and seven. We feel that too much emphasis on agitation in the peasantry will lead to a side-lining of the urban working class - which in most countries is the far larger, far more important layer of the proletariat. Concerning point seven, the ARSP official positions state that the theoretical works of Enver Hoxha are the newest and most correct additions to Marxism-Leninism. We propose that point seven acknowledge that Hoxhaism - most importantly it's principled defence of the right of each nation to find it's own path to socialism - is acknowledged as the most recent development of Marxist thought."

The Federation citizens present at the meeting took the lengthy renditions of the Internationale a little differently. Mr. Luxembourg made sure to stand respectfully, but remained silent. Ms. Monet, on the other hand, made sure to sing along when it was presented in English and then its original French, the official languages of the Federation.

 

Once that was over, both delegates returned to their seats and looked over the list of conditions. The SDP delegate, taking one look at the list, placed his hand over his mouth. Was he shocked, or trying to stifle a laugh? Either way, he took a glance at the rest of the points that was taking much less time than he'd first intended, then began to take notes. He didn't seem too impressed with the conference so far, but stayed silent until his note-taking was complete.

 

The PCQ delegate took a few minutes to read over the text fully. On her second readthrough, she was resting her forehead in her palm, looking much like a student that had been handed an exam she hadn't studied for, and had instead spent the previous night drinking. PCQ was marginalized enough in the Federation, but adhering to all of these principles would doubtless make the membership rolls shrink considerably. Moreover, they may even lose their support for the next provincial legislature election and have to ally themselves with a more capitalist-friendly party, like they did at the federal level. Just as she was thinking of that, Monet glanced to the side and spotted the SDP representative.

 

Luxembourg caught her eye and noticed the bemused expression on her face, then simply shrugged. Monet waited for her turn to speak and raised her hand to be recognized.

 

"Some of these conditions do not seem to take into account that some parties present may be from countries with a largely post-industrial economy that focuses on the service sector, such as the Federation. While it is true that the Federation has a robust aerospace and automotive sector, this ultimately takes a back seat to services, especially finance and real estate.

 

We can certainly agitate in the countryside and in the cities, but a good chunk of the Federation's population will be left unrepresented if we do not extend such propagandizing to the service sector. While PCQ does not wish to overlook the contributions of the farmers and laborers to international communism, I would still like to see some support for those who are exploited by the capitalists on a more subtle level, such as white-collar workers who are less likely to form unions or fight for their rights in the workplace.

 

Moreover...we do not recognize Maoism as a realistic solution in many modern situations. PCQ does not have an armed wing, and PCQ does not intend to take up arms against its government. We have a legitimate position in the provincial assembly in South Quebec, and we will not jeopardize that by presenting an ultimatum to our membership to accept Maoist ideals or leave, as per the ninth condition."

"I have to agree with my international comrades," Gottlieb Nussenbaum said after listening to the German translation, "agricultural agitation and armed resistance simply is not possible in Alvonia. Already my party has been driven deep underground by the Wehrmacht's and Schwarze Korps's crackdowns. If any armed resistance were to happen in Alvonia, it would have to be a total overthrow of the current government."

A representative from Druk Yul's Socialist Democratic party rose and spoke, "Our nation has taken upon itself to try an interesting application of communist doctrine in which it is selectively applied to industries that are most responsive to productive increases from centralized form. While keeping other industry, whose production's value is the subject of popular opinion such as the arts.. under a freemarket system. In such way the needs of the people are seen, and their desires are equally met. Key industries which have been almost wholly given over to communist doctrine are basic food, water, shelter, clothing, and healthcare. Our government believes it the ideal form of government institution where all are cared for and the creative and innovative are rewarded."

Jackie would speak openly as well. "Shanghai has also been implementing a system similar to Druk Yul where all the citizens are free to choose which way they would like their buisnesses to be while using bigger communist systems for all of their utilities such as food, water, power, healthcare, and other stuff like that. It has worked well so far and with the upcoming elections my party will continue to try to implement more communist ideas into more stuff while still keeping the majority of the people happy."
