Interactive vote!

Since the reunification in 2000, the island has embarked on a major civic building campaign. The most famous example of this was the building of a new government complex in Taraville that could handle the new load of work.

So, the vote is down below, but first here is some background!

The next challenge was to build a transit infrastructure that would physically tie the four sperate regions together

How could all of these projects be affordable? It turned out that the reunification had high economic benefits.

Previous to 2000, the four separate nations each had their own bureaucracies. The overhead costs of individual Departments of Transportation, Education, Labor, State, Interior, Health, and so on were very expensive. These departments, however, made up less than half of the savings.

Each nation's Defense Departments and spy organizations could be done away with. For 100 years, the four nations feared both each other and foreign governments' interference. But now, none of this is needed: all of the funds spend on splitting apart the nation would be used to tie it together.

Now, for the issue!

A proposal to tear down the nuclear power plants that have powered East Port for 50+ years--proposed by a congressman from Bordav--has become one of the first real political battles in the new Syldav Island Union. You get

Pro:

  • The new government--based in former Balboa--is making a lot of changes in Bordav, Syldav, and Peotav, but less at home
  • These other regions have tougher environmental standards for new development
  • It's dangerous! It's across the river from downtown, for goodness sake!

Con:

  • There are polluting and dangerously old power plants all over the island. We should use funds to replace those.
  • The nuclear powerplants have worked great for years and have the highest safety rating
  • Politics makes bad public policy. Plus, these things look great!

Leave them be - the chance of a disaster is miniscule and nuclear power would be much cheaper and or cleaner than what would be replacing it

I vote to keep them. Funds are needed for things that are reaching their age, such as the old powerplants that are 'all over the island'! The nuclear reactors seem like they can hold their own for far more years
