Default TRF Nation

I was toying around with this idea the other day and decided to share it and see what kind of interest their might be.

TRF is host to the widest variety of Earthlings I know of, that actually communicate generally. Such a thing naturally leads to differences of opinion due to culture, religion, and social variances.

The subject of a world government comes up often, largely decried as being a pipe dream, but the concept is a valid one.

I wanted to propose that we (TRF) design, create, build, and administer a political body in the form of a nationstate. Everything from the design of the government to how laws are made or unmade would be done as a collective.

Do we make it a monarchy? A republic? A democracy? What about a council?

Is the military a high priority? What about education? Or retirement? Economy type?

Do we allow for cultural substates (ie 'Kurdistan' or Israel). Do we allow religious freedom? How far?

If you are interested in this idea, share what you think and how you think it should be gone about.

Come on Draco. It's blindingly obvious that if TRF was a state all religion would be punishable by death.

Nice idea though.

It's a monarchy, with regional governors.

Oh of course, that was just my attempt to sum up this place in a sentence.
