Bill: Motion of Cultural Protocol Affirmation

Details

Submitted by[?]: Milliyetçi Hareket Partisi

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 4178

Description[?]:

Jakania is a heterogeneous nation, consisting of a multitude of different ethnic, linguistic and religious groups. Since the 42nd century, the Tukaric population has made up a rough two-thirds majority, with the remainder generally belonging to the Kalopian and Majatran groups. The state recognizes the Tukaric language as predominant, though both Kalopian and Majatran languages are taught in schools on a voluntary basis, and are recognized as official minority languages. Further, while the state has historically adopted a secular and neutral stance with regards to religion, an overwhelming majority of Jakanian citizens adhere to the Ahmadi faith. The degree to which the state is secular and respectful of diversity may vary, though the nation's factual religious composition may not be ignored.

Ethnicities:

Tukars (Turks): 67%
Kalopians (Greeks): 20%
Majatrans (Arabs): 11%
Others: 2%

Languages:

Tukaric (Turkish): 69%
Kalopian (Greek): 20%
Majatran (Arab): 10%
Other: 1%

Religions:

Ahmadism (Islam): 84%
Hosianism (Christianity): 14%
Yeudism (Judaism): 1%
Other: 1%

OOC: The names of parties, candidates, regions and cities should be mostly Turkish, though both Greek and Arab are allowed for a minority. Ethnic-interest parties representing either of the three major groups are also allowed, though their ethnic focus should not be overemphasized, and they must fully respect the official ethnic composition of Jakania. Party names may be in English, but such parties should include a Turkish translation, either in the name itself, or in their party description. Unlike party names, candidates' names *must* be in one of the nations' major languages. Failure to comply may lead to Moderation involvement. Some guides to Turkish, Greek and Arabic names are listed below:

    Random fact: Cultural Protocols bills must provide descriptions of the cultures, languages and religions which would be easy for an unfamiliar player to understand (eg. "Dundorfian = German"). Where appropriate, they should also provide guidance to players on where to find help with translations and character names. This might include, for example, links to Google Translate, Behind the Name's Random Name Generator and Fantasy Name Generators.
