Westphalia Regional Message Board

I would very much like to see Westphalia become an active and vibrant community as it was when I first joined. Something about this region has kept me here, through its inactivity, and I'm not really sure what that is. But the idea of having the region be an active and positive environment is exciting to me. So I suppose the simple answer would be to liven up the region and create a fun and interactive experience. If you would like to discuss the matter further, as I'm sure you will, please don't hesitate to telegram me at your earliest convenience.

Alright everyone, I've been granted executive access. The first order of business is to begin work on a new constitution and the founding of a new government. I will begin working on a basic constitution and I encourage everyone to speak their minds about what should be in it. As for the new government, Mike will be a figurehead monarch, I will serve as de facto head of state, but all other public offices will be elected. If anyone has ideas about the structure or positions for the new government, I would be happy to hear about it. I welcome any volunteers who would like to work with me in this project. That's about it for now!

Raiders.

So... Any developments?

I'm currently underway on the constitution. I'll update once I have something presentable. Any input would be encouraged!

Well, I don't really have any suggestions - not until the draft comes out.

I've sent a draft of the constitution to Catholic Prussia. If that receives approval, I'll post it here.
