Bill: Cultural Protocols Updated

Details

Submitted by[?]: Radical Liberal Party

Status[?]: passed

Votes: This bill is a resolution. It requires more yes votes than no votes. This bill will not pass any sooner than the deadline.

Voting deadline: January 3998

Description[?]:

The following must be abided by:

BRIEF OVERVIEW:

The state of Gaduridos has a culture loosely based upon a Caribbean-esque Spanish-Italian culture with considerable Anglophone and some Chinese influences. The country's immigrant population, primarily from Indrala and Tukarali, as well as from Baltusia, have contributed significantly towards the culture and development of Gaduridos.


ETHNICITY AND CULTURAL ORIGINS:

- Bentaran (Spanish): 25%
- Vintallian (Italian): 26%
- Marligantiano (Spanish-Italian): 20%
- Gaduri-Indralan (Chinese) descent/ancestry: 17%
- Gaduri-Baltusiano (Spanish/Latin American) descent/ancestry: 7%
- Gaduri-Tukarese (Portuguese-Asian) descent/ancestry: 3%
- Gaduri-Luthorian (English) descent/ancestry: 3%

Note:

Bentarans (those from Salnaeta and Pernessia) are Spanish.
Vintallians (those from South Vintalli and North Vintalli) are Italian.
Marligantiano are a mix of Spanish and Italian.
There is significant Luthorian (English) linguistic and cultural influence in Salnaeta, Pernessia, and South Vintalli.
There is significant Indralan (Chinese) influence in Marligantos, South Vintalli and North Vintalli.

LANGUAGE:

Gaduridos has no official language although Bentaran (Spanish) and Vintallian (Italian) are the two major first languages and due to their similarities are also strong second languages.. However, Luthorian (English) is the language used by the government and in the legislature and Luthorian is also considered the language of inter-ethnic communication.

- Bentaran (including Baltusiano) (Spanish): 68%
- Luthorian (majority being Luthorian as a second language) (English): 68%
- Vintallian (Italian): 53%
- Indralan: 19%
- Marligantiano (Spanish-Italian mix): 9%
- Tukarese: 3%

CHARACTER NAMING:

Many of your characters' names should have Spanish and Italian names, or a mix of both. This usually accounts for around 2/3 (8 or 9 of the 14 character/politician name slots). The rest should primarily be Chinese-sounding, although small numbers of English names is acceptable. Remember, due to the vast number of ethnic groups in Gaduridos intermarriage is extremely common, therefore, for example, characters with an English first name and Chinese surname or double-barrelled (hyphenated) surnames are warmly welcomed.

RELIGION:

- Hosian (Christian): 45% Christian religions (Terran Catholic, Orthodox Catholic
-- Terran Patriarchal: 33%
-- Aurorian Patriarchal: 12%
- Gao-Showan (Far-East) religions: 17%
-- Guidao/Qamido: 12%
-- Cheng Daenism (Buddhism): 3%
-- Kamism (Shintoism): 2%
- No religion/Atheism: 38%

PLEASE NOTE:

It is encouraged that party names be in English as this is the language of inter-ethnic communication. If you are thinking of playing as a party representing a minority group (e.g. Indralans) or a region (e.g. Vintalli) please consider how difficult this will be given the games' rigid mechanics and electoral system (it is impossible to only stand candidates in certain areas and even harder to win seats in only the regions you seek to represent). Please consider this for the sake of realism.

MessageWhat I propose:

- Bentaran (Spanish): 25% (-5%)
- Vintallian (Italian): 26% (-3%)
- Marligantiano (Spanish-Italian): 20% (+5%)
- Gaduri-Indralan (Chinese) descent/ancestry: 17% (+2%)
- Gaduri-Baltusiano (Spanish/Latin American) descent/ancestry: 7% (+1%)
- Gaduri-Tukarese (Portuguese-Asian) descent/ancestry: 3% (-)
- Gaduri-Luthorian (English) descent/ancestry: 3% (+1%)

Marligantiano will have increased due to more mixed relationships mainly of Bentaran & Vintallian people. It will also give us an opportunity to become a unique nation with there already being an Italian based nation and a Spanish based one. Other increases are due to immigration/birth rates in those communities.

- Bentaran (including Baltusiano) (Spanish): 68% (-1%)
- Luthorian (majority being Luthorian as a second language) (English): 68% (+2%)
- Vintallian (Italian): 53% (-2%)
- Indralan: 19%
- Marligantiano (Spanish-Italian mix): 9% (+1%)
- Tukarese: 3%

Self-explanatory due to changes in race and greater education explaining Luthorian increase.

- Hosian (Christian): 45% Christian religions (Terran Catholic, Orthodox Catholic
-- Terran Patriarchal: 33%
-- Aurorian Patriarchal: 12%
- Gao-Showan (Far-East) religions: 17%
-- Guidao/Qamido: 12%
-- Cheng Daenism (Buddhism): 3%
-- Kamism (Shintoism): 2%
- No religion/Atheism: 38%

Religion I am unsure of what to do, like all other stats I am open to suggestions.

MessageI think we should try and do something different to this. It's too jumbled a culture, too weird. Firstly I think we should have more dominance on Luthorian culture, definitely have it as the dominant language. Perhaps with the Vinitilian language, it could be similar to how Quebec in Canada is French speaking but the rest of Canada speaks English.

I think it's rather obvious that English based countries are more desirable in Particracy overall, I reckon the need for a new protocol is a good opportunity to take advantage of this. Hutori was meant to be the in-game equivalent of Canada and Australia, it was originally meant to be a bit like the US too, but this never really came to pass. I reckon some slight Americanisation would be cool, but with a more diverse culture.

As for religion, this is something that should be very split. I reckon No religion/Atheism should probably be the largest religion however.

I'll read this in more detail and give better suggestions soon however.

MessageI don't believe we can do that. The nation is culturally protected and we have absolutely no explanation for a surge in the Luthori population.

MessageWe can basically shift things about 5% either way. It's just to re-affirm, something we have to do.

MessageHey guys,

Just to try to bring a bit of clarity here...

Firstly, you're not actually required to affirm your Cultural Protocols through a Cultural Protocols update. It is simply that if Gaduridos does not affirm its Cultural Protocols by May 1st then, under section 15 of the rules, it will become a candidate for Culturally Open status (ie. it could lose its Cultural Protocols). You need not necessarily regard that as a bad thing, of course - it all depends on what you, the Gaduridos players, want.

If you do want Gaduridos to continue to be Culturally Protected, then you need to affirm its Culturally Protected status by passing a Cultural Protocols update, under the terms of section 16 of the Game Rules (see http://forum.particracy.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=6363 ).

Bear in mind Cultural Protocols updates are likely not to be approved if they make very radical changes that are not justified by role-play. So you couldn't suddenly make Gaduridos English or Russian, for example.

Also bear in mind that there is now a requirement for Cultural Protocols to provide information for players to help with language translations and character naming. This might include, for example, links to Google Translate (https://translate.google.com/ ) and Fantasy Name Generators (http://fantasynamegenerators.com/#realNames ).

Hope this helps! Any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

MessageThanks Mods.

I reckon we should try and boost the Luthorian population to the maximum we can, and make it the official national language?

MessageI'd rather not have this become another English based nation, we have enough of those already, Luthori is already the second largest language and if my proposal was adopted it would be about the same size as the official language making it likely that two languages could be made the official.

Message"I think it's rather obvious that English based countries are more desirable in Particracy overall"

*sigh* ...why?

AFAIK, even though Gaduridos has been Spanish-Italian since its first protocols, Luthoran has always been the lingua franca anyway. I really wonder what happened to the Pontesian population from the colonial era, but I guess they could pretty much just have been assimilated or something. Although the religious demographics are strikingly similar (catholic ie Auroran and orthodox ie Terran): =P

MessageIt's just a matter of fact, English language nations at the very least tend to get more interest. Using foreign language in party names in particular is a bit of a pet nuisance of mine.

MessageWow, you should have been there when Dankuk was still Dranland. Welsh, Latinos and Koreans in one big melting pot: a 330 pages newspaper on the forum while others have no more than 20-30. Many non-anglophone countries like Aloria (Welsh/German), Aldegar (Iranian), Hobrazia (Georgian, Kirlawa (Welsh majority) have +5 players. It creates room for interesting RP, in fact it in many ways does that a lot better than generic anglophone republics. Hard to talk about ethnic relations for instance when those are not properly defined.

Anyway, writing your party names in English is actually allowed even if you live in a non-anglophone country (my own is Roman/Armenian), it's supposedly just a translation of the name then. I think Gaduridos has a potential of becoming a very interesting country due its diversity and its history. Liu can probably give a few tips. =)

Gaduridos's Cultural Protocols have been affirmed. As per the rules, we wait at least 48 hours until they can be approved.
