Good day to you!
I am from the Civil Nations Alliance, and after some checks in your region, you are eligible to join the Civil Regions Alliance. Much like the Comintern, or the fascist alliance, except for neutral, strong minded regions such as yours. It will only be a factbook with certain regions being enlisted, so this is NOT A RECRUITMENT TELEGRAM. Signing up for the CRA will benefit all nations in this region as in any cases of disagreements or wars with regions outside the alliance, we shall send help in raids or attacks. Just simply ask your founder to telegram me if they would like to be pinned in the factbook. If not, then good day.
Explanation of Delegate's Actions — Above is a RMB recruiter. His post spammed our regional message bored. That is the reason why I suppressed the post and then proceeded to ban him from the region. I sent him this telegram.
'Don't spam our regional message board with recruitment messages. You'll probably get banned for spamming.'
I am a bit late (on vacation) but I just want to give a shoutout to our current WA delegate, The Democratic Empire of Imperium Anglorum! (applause)
Thank you! :)
The question you asked was an important one. In many ways, our direction in the future depends on it. To grow our region back to the heights of the past, we must recruit new players from outside. Yet, to keep Europe as Europe, we must preserve and protect our unique regional culture. What this means is that we have to build an inclusive and supportive environment based on our own propensities while also assimilating people into it.
This focus on ourselves, however, does not mean that we have to abandon enfranchisement and democratic principles for those who arrive on our shores. That balance is why my proposed constitution requires nations to have high influence if they are to vote in the European Parliament. The balance between old and new is one which must be established carefully. I believe we must build a Europe around everyone, which means we must embrace the new while looking back to our roots for guidance. What we do is make globalism itself European.
What do you mean with the high influence to vote in the European Parliament? Literal influence or metaphorical.
I'm liking the idea of making Globalism Europe's.
In the polling system, there is an option of restricting the people who are allowed to vote in the poll to (1) residents, (2) WA members, (3) Natives, (4) High population, and (5) High influence. 'Residents' means that you can just make another nation to get another vote, so that's out. 'WA members' means that you can't just make more nations to get more votes, so that's in. But — you can get people from outside to swing the vote in a certain direction — also known as what you're concerned about. 'Natives' helps, but that only works if they have lived elsewhere for some time. 'High population' is irrelevant, since it just means that the player has played for some time. But 'High influence' means that they have stayed here for enough time to get endorsements and boost their influence. As such a massive region, the hardcoded requirements in the poll should not be problem, since according to the current poll already, practically everyone is above Medium and High influence, so I saw it as the best option.
I am on 93 influence, is that high enough influence to vote? Also, what sort of things shall we vote on? Decisions like the subsidisation proportion of Pie's thrown per capita, or WA resolutions, or embassies?
I'll have to check in with Technical for exact figures, in the morning (even I've got to sleep), but I'm pretty sure that is more than enough.
The purview of the European Parliament in my draft constitution is quite clear. I published it as a dispatch under this account. (Also, if other people want to write their own draft constitutions or comment on my discussion thread in Europe-game.eu, go straight ahead!)
