A general election has been announced for next week (Wednesday 9th November. The outcome is predicted to be a hung parliament with the National Party making huge gains over the Labour party. The vote will be held on Simtropolis and I want you all to vote! When the time comes I will provide mini manifestos of all the parties and provide quotes etc from the live TV debates. Check back soon! Please vote in the opinion poll that I have provided (please note, this will not be the actual outcome, it is just there to get a general opinion.)

Bergerland's Parliamentary system works as follows: There are 127 seats. Each seat represents roughly 15,000 citizens. Several candidates (normally 1 from each major party) runs for one of the 127 seats and the one who wins most votes claims the seat for their party. To form a government a party has to have a majority of the seats (64 or more) and recieve blessing from the queen. If a party does not gain at least 64 seats they must form a coalition with one or more parties in order to gain a majority. The government would stay in power for 6 years before the next election however there are plans to reduce this to 4 years.

Here's a quick description of all the major parties.


The next major update will still be the motorway system within Askersund so check back then!

This makes me remember that I have my own political parties logos collecting dust in my hard drive... I think I have to show them sometime.

Great job overall, the Green Conservationists and Bergeland First logos look very cool and professional!
