MessageHmmm we see what is trying to be done, although larger regions that have higher population will be at a disadvantage to smaller regions, result the few controlling the many....the current legislature may be more fair. However I am willing to be swayed though...

MessageI rise in support of this worthy bill. At the moment, the smaller regions are dwarfed by the larger regions. This results in several minorities not getting represented in this parliament. If we are to be truly representitive of this country, we must pass this bill.

    Random fact: When it comes to creating a Cultural Protocol in a Culturally Open nation, players are not necessarily required to provide a plausible backstory for how the nation's cultural background developed. However, the provision of a plausible backstory may be a factor in whether Moderation approves the Cultural Protocol if players in surrounding nations question its appropriateness for their region of the game map.
