  1. This thread follows the story of Noah Wade, a weathered politician who currently serves as the 33rd Secretary of State, and his journey to learn the ways of beekeeping. With this, I just want to keep track of my progress and promote the idea of passive roleplaying in general. By no means am I a beekeeper in real life, so my knowledge comes from 3 YouTube videos I've seen in the span of 2 days. STATUS: 2-stack brood boxes erected, 8 frames each. Queen bee is at work after cage was removed; first bee package installed. No signs of harvestable honey yet.

  3. THE RANA REPORT Your source for the latest Los Santos news, investigative journalism, and city-wide updates. Former LS COO Charles Lockhart confirmed as State Attorney General BY RANA KHATI Alta City Hall. On Wednesday, January 20th, 2021, the Senate Public Safety and State Security Committee convened for the confirmation hearing of Mr. Charles Lockhart for Attorney General. Mr. Lockhart was most recently the City Operations Officer for the greater Los Santos area. Throughout the hearing, Mr. Lockhart clarified and espoused his approach to criminal justice. He indicated that with regard to the death penalty that it should only be used only as a “last case resort” reserved for acts of mass murder or terrorism but ultimately should remain an option for those cases. With regard to organized crime, he expressed that there is a lack of manpower with regard to both the LSPD and LSSD task forces and indicated his office would attempt to increase support in this regard, whether that means a recruitment drive or seeking out of city transfers is unclear. Senator Ernst pressed Mr. Lockhart on what his office might do to tackle fraudulent charities, Mr. Lockhart referred back to his previous answer of ‘increasing resources’ to the relevant departments. With regard to the recent corruption blowout from Former Mayor Oswald Halford, Senator Burris asked him if there was anything that can be done to prevent this situation from ever happening again. Mr. Lockhart simply stated that as Mr. Halford was caught and prosecuted, “there isn’t much more that can be done when the system worked” Senator Burris pressed him and challenged the idea that the system worked with regard to the corruption and Mr. Lockhart’s reply was that “nobody knew of these allegations prior to him taking office” and then remarked as if Senator Burris was calling for a global surveillance of citizens home, office, and vehicles. Senator Burris has made no such proposal at any point during the hearing. On marijuana criminalization, Mr. Lockhart expressed that there are too many resources going towards the policing of marijuana that could be better expended in other areas of criminal justice which shows a willingness for his office to pursue a more lenient policy towards marijuana offenders. Mr. Lockhart was confirmed with a majority vote of four Yeas, those voting in the affirmative being Senator Frank Ernst, Senator Ethan Schmidt, Senator Gabriela Morales, and Senator Dwight Burris. Senator Gabriela Morales leaving the confirmation hearing. Senator Gabriela Morales, a prominent member of the city and state Democratic Party offered her comments after the hearing: When asked about the recent civil unrest with regard to former Mayor Halford’s corruption scandal, Senator Morales offered words of encouragement: UPDATED January 21, 2021: Lockhart in the Hearing - Taken by Ms. Nayeli Greyfeather @Greyfeather Thank you for supporting independent journalism Remember to like and subscribe for more city-wide news! > Comments are enabled

  5. Faction Introduction: The San Andreas Government is the newest legal faction on GTA:World. This faction aims to simulate a realistic state government, without clear parallels to any particular real-life state, with a general non-binding nod to California. Its primary purpose is to develop and portray a unique system for this community that is plausible, effective and engaging for role-play. As the umbrella of the branches of government and respective government organizations, SAGov offers something for everyone with an interest in legal role-play. Whether you work as an official in a nonpartisan bureaucracy, or as a cut-throat political operative vying for influence in the battleground that is the State Senate - this faction offers a canvas for players to create their own character stories with a meaningful impact on the broader server sandbox. This faction encompasses the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the State Government. The San Andreas State Government will emphasize roleplay around political activity and state legislation, while the City of Los Santos will focus more on the administration of the municipality and the services it provides. Given time, we aim to strike a balance between the two that will benefit everybody involved. Welcome to the Government of the State of San Andreas. The State of San Andreas - History The State of San Andreas, formerly known as the Republic of San Andreas, was established in the aftermath of the Mexican-American War, which concluded in July of 1848. San Andreas was granted statehood in the United States after the subsequent Treaty of Alta Hidalgo with Mexico. The state would come to encompass a large portion of the landmass of the south-western seaboard. Typical of new American states, an ad hoc government was established in September of 1848. The first gubernatorial elections took place on November 13, 1849, with the renown abolitionist William Tobias Rutford winning office for the then progressive Republican Party. His cabinet would constitute the first cabinet of the Executive Branch for the state. The San Andreas State Legislature was also formed, which comprised a unicameral 20-member Senate, whose composition has changed over time. Simultaneously, the Judicial Branch was also established, bringing the Rule of Law to an otherwise uncivilized and often harsh environment. During the American Civil War, San Andreas officially supported the Union, making significant financial contributions. Due to the significant presence of pro-Confederate sympathizers, the state did not actively take an official role in hostilities. At the conclusion of the war, San Andreas benefited immensely from this position of effective neutrality, being relatively undamaged by the conflict. The political landscape would gradually change in the wake of the Emancipation Proclamation and the Reconstruction period, with progressive Republicans and status quo Democrats generally contesting each other for the remainder of the century, right through the Prohibition era. Throughout both World Wars, San Andreas emerged as a prominent center of industry and commerce on the west coast, eventually rivaling the north east of the country in economic capacity. The political climate of San Andreas, like that of the U.S. in general, would see a realignment in the wake of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. The progressive wing of the Republican Party would gradually defect to the Democratic Party, now absent the more conservative Dixiecrats, who found a new home in the Republican Party. San Andreas remained a progressive state, and the once dominant Republican Party would eventually give ground to the Democrats as the new face of progressive politics. This trend has held, with a few deviations over the past half century, with moderate Republicans occasionally winning power, despite the clear progressive demographic. Rural conservatives however, formed a strong base for the Republican Party through the 20th Century, and the trajectory held into the 21st Century. The Government of San Andreas - Current State San Andreas is a predominantly ‘blue’ state, trending toward Democratic governments and frequently voting Democrat during presidential elections. Within the state itself, the Democratic Party has held supermajorities in the Senate throughout the 1990s into the mid-2000s. While the state can be characterized as politically progressive, the conservative opposition has grown considerably in reaction to the polarization of Democratic state politics. In the 2010s, the Republican Party began to regain ground with moderate senators turning once safe districts into swing seats through balanced agendas encompassing moderated social policies and conservative economics. The administration of Governor Robert Brandt began in January 2017. Brandt, a prominent urban Democrat born and raised in the city of Los Santos, ran on a platform to balance the budget and strengthen private sector growth. Brandt’s policy proposals were more moderate than his progressive predecessor, Governor Enrique Cortez. Despite Brandt’s moderate policies, the Republican Party began to reassert itself through successful campaigns in the State Senate, corresponding with a rise in conservatism in San Andreas politics. State political pundits continue to speculate the causes of Republican resurgence, with some hypothesizing that decades of Democratic control are bringing about voter fatigue. Others point to a growing desire for balance among undecided voters. Whatever the actual reason, the Republican Party has continued to grow in spite of a once inhospitable political environment for conservativism. The 2019-2020 session of the State Senate was rocked by the unexpected announcement by Secretary of State Helen Marshal, that Los Santos County would effectively be redistricted to grant the city greater representation within the legislature, in line with census data which indicated that population growth had outpaced its present allocation of a single senator. The proposal would see Los Santos represented by five state senators. The political fallout of the redistricting plan was significant. Republicans vehemently denounced the move, with Republican leadership labeling the decision as “radical” and “another step toward tyranny.” The San Andreas GOP, appealing to their rural base and undecided voters, secured sweeping victories in the Senate elections for the 2020-2021 session. These electoral wins represented the largest Republican Senate gains in decades, even earning the GOP senators in the historically Democratic stronghold of Los Santos. As of the current 2020-21 session, the Democratic Party holds a slim majority, with the Republican Party in clear ascendance - aiming to turn the State Senate firmly ‘red’ for the first time in nearly twenty years.

  7. As Nervous announced before, we can expect an election system coming really soon. Personally, I am really curious about your opinion about political roleplay. The reason for this thread is to create a place where you can share ideas and concerns about political and government RP. To start the thread, I will ask three questions: 1.) What do you expect from an in-character political party? 2.) How would you change the current politics in Los Santos? 3.) Do you roleplay any political identity in your character currently? Please keep the thread civilized and avoid real-life politics.
  8. PERSONAL BIOGRAPHY Name: Henri de Montesquieu Gender: Male Date of Birth: January 21, 1972 Born: Bordeaux, France City: Los Santos, San Andreas Political Party: Republican Party (GOP) Biography: Henri de Montesquieu (January 21, 1972) is a French jurist and politician, who had once served as the 15th Minister of Justice (Ministre de la Justice) for the French Government in 1997. His court opinions helped lay the basis for modern French parliamentary law and made the judiciary a coequal branch of government along with the legislative and executive branches. Montesquieu was the longest-serving Minister of Justice in French legislative, judiciary and executive history, he dominated the department and office and played a significant role in the development of the French legal system. Most notably, he reinforced the principle that the judiciary are obligated to exercise judicial review, by disregarding purported laws if they violate the laws. Thus, Montesquieu cemented the position of the French judiciary as an independent and influential branch of government. Furthermore, he made very important decisions relating to conservatism, affecting the balance of power between the governors and the governed during his early years in office. In particular, he repeatedly confirmed the supremacy of parliamentary law over general law, and supported an expansive reading of the enumerated powers. Resigning his government office in 2016, Montesquieu moved to Los Santos with his family to expand his government experience on an international level, establishing further connections in the State. He currently serves as the 1st Attorney General after a complete overhaul of the State's Government system. The family aims to build the State's first Federal Bank and a family winery. Education: (a) College of Juilly (LL.B.), University of Oxford (LL.M.) (b) S.J.D in Law, École Normale Superieure (ENS, Paris). Career: 15th Minister of Justice (Ministre de la Justice) (1997-2016) Associate Justice / Chief Justice (2017-2018) 1st Attorney General (2018-) Family: Brother(s): Jacques de Montesquieu (age 35) Wife: Vivienne de Montesquieu (age 43) Children: François (age 25), Sébastien (23), Léon (22), Pierre (age 21), Marie (age 20), Camille (age 19), Jacques (age 17). HOUSE of MONTESQUIEU The Montesquieus are a prominent political, legal and banking family, from French origin, that established political, banking and financial systems throughout Europe by the 18th century, moving to Los Santos, San Andreas in the late 20th century in hopes of establishing and dominating those sectors in a city riddled with criminal and gang activities. The Montesquieu dynasty had its genesis during the 17th century when François-Xavier de Montesquieu founded a banking business and a conservative political institution in his native country. Over time and with the help of François’ children, the family business expanded throughout several European countries, later controlling the world’s largest banks and political institutions. The Montesquieus story began with the humble beginnings of its founder, François-Xavier de Montesquieu. Born in 1750, François was raised in a Jewish neighbourhood in Bordeaux, France. As a child, he lived in a full house with about 30 other family members. François learned about the business and political world at an early age—his father, Bertrand de Montesquieu, traded coins, silk and other commodities for a living. One of Bertrand's clients was the King Louis XV of France. François became an orphan at the age of twelve following the death of his mother. His father had died a natural death the year before. He decided to take on an apprenticeship with a banking firm in Paris, France shortly after turning fourteen. During his time there, he learned the ins and outs of banking, business politics, foreign trade and later national and international politics. François-Xavier de Montesquieu, along with his brothers, continued the commodities and money trading business that their father started — including selling rare coins to King Louis XV of France, who eventually became the European continent's richest man. Soon he was providing other banking and later political services to Louis XV and a number of other nobles, and by 1770, François was given the title "Crown Agent" which was heavily politicised (this might be a cause to why Henri eventually rises to power in the French Government in the late 1990s as the first Jewish politician to become the longest-serving Minister of Justice - it is up to you to decide how he possibly rose to power, this is just a possibility). By 1778, François married and went on to have seven children – five sons and two daughters. The family wealth has been divided among many descendants and heirs throughout the years. Today, their holdings, which span a number of diverse sectors such as political and civil, financial and business, alongside their wealth falls under the direct hands of François’ latest heir; Henri de Montesquieu. Most family members today are employed by political and financial institutions they have founded or largely invested in. The remarkable success of the family has solely been due to a strong interest in the civil service and the financial sector, being entrepreneurs and smart, effective players in the game of politics and business. François' descendants continue to finance global political, legal and financial operations and contribute to scholarly, humanitarian endeavours. Currently, the Montesquieu family is focused on establishing the Federal Reserve Bank of Los Santos, which aims to stimulate the city’s economic climate and create a stable, rich and flourishing city, providing a fair financial system to all its inhabitants. They also aim to work with other agencies around the state to help establish a functional and effective criminal and civil justice system. The family motto is: Imperium, Iustitiae, Intellectus, meaning "Power, Justice, Intellect."
