Player ID: Johan
Notable previous player roles: Jean Duvois (Belgium), Carlos Fueres (Mexico), Guilio dell'Ouvante (Italy), and others.

Character Name: Gerhard Stoltenberg
Party: CDU/CSU
Powerbases (Pick Three): Christian Democratic Union, Middle Class, Business

400 word explanation of your plans:

Stoltenberg is a veteran politician of the CDU, already having been leader of the youth league Junge Union as well as Minister for Science under Chancellors Erhard and Kiesinger. He belongs to the traditionalist wing of the party, and wants to continue the political tradition of Konrad Adenauer; a strong commitment to the NATO and economic cooperation within the EEC, resistance against communism but along democratic lines, a social but free market economy, constitutional federalism within Germany, traditional conservative family values and a sufficient but not excessive welfare state. He views Germany's future as laying in a strong cultural, economic and security oriented connection with the west and the United States, and to this end pledges support for a "containment" of communism, for example in Vietnam. He also wants to uphold the conviction that Germany is one and must one day be united, rather than suffer permanent division into two parts. He will, however, not be unreasonable if the GDR or the Soviet Union is prepared to talk and discuss with the Federal Republic, and is prepared to oppose US policy if it seriously contradicts German interests.

In the domestic field, he is a strong believer in education reform and a better funded higher education system, particulary favouring those students making an effort to learn and innovate. He will protect the social welfare system intact in its current form, but opposes increasing the tax burden, and would instead look at ways to ease it on low and middle incomes. He sees the role of the state in economic affairs not to actively intervene, but to create the best possible conditions for private enterprise to develop and help it to grow. He is a great supporter of nuclear energy and wants to see heavy investment into it over the coming decade. Furthermore, in recognition of what he views as the "core of civilized society", he wants to increase government support for families with children, while not relaxing abortion or divorce laws.

Finally, one of his main promises to the West German people is to finally provide strong and efficient government, ending the inaction, u-turns and repeated changes of government that have damaged the nation's standing and prestige over the past two years. His preferred coalition partner is the FDP.

Character Name: Alfons Goppel
Party: CDU
Powerbases (Pick Three): CDU, Business, NATO

400 word explanation of your plans: Alfons Goppel is the Minister-President of Bavaria, and he is making a run as the CDU/CSU candidate for Chancellor. His plans are to improve the economy, and while he is a moderate, or a tad moderate at least, and trying to start a thaw, he does not want Germany to go the route of improved relations with the Warsaw Pact. He believes that is not good for the Democratic Germany, and that East Germany should undergo democratic reforms before a full thaw, and that unification via referendum is the ultimate goal. With all that said, it goes without saying that he will support a Germany that is within NATO, oppose putting the East Germans back into the United Nations, for now. He is open to talks however, if he gets the desired reforms.

He plans to stay loyal to businesses, committing to a low-tax environment in Germany, that makes investments in its population with things like education spending and worker training, but at the same time cuts back other spending, like handouts to the bottom feeders of German society(aka poor people) and make sure not to increase the German budget deficit. He also plans to help kickstart the economy by staying loyal to the European Dream of Konrad Adeneaur, and working closely with the rest of Europe. To kickstart the European Dream, he will oppose expansion outside of Western Europe for now, but he will also try and start moving inside of Europe as well. He will try to develop and integrate the economies of Western Europe, so that they will be a permanent, united force to reckon with economically, not just a bunch of mid-major economies that are divided.

In the foreign arena, he supported Konrad Schafer’s resistance of the French/East German declaration, but won’t push the issue too much with the French or the international community, though he will work it up domestically. He will be loyal to NATO as well, as he realizes that the North American Treaty Organization is his way for protection. He wants to work closely with Europe and France, and make sure to most importantly, mend relations with France since the Fifth Republic is Germany’s greatest ally. He believes that the people of West Germany support working multilaterally with his European allies, and he will do whatever he can to work multilaterally, and always present a united front with his EEC and NATO allies, not just on economics, but on foreign affairs wherever possible.


((Yes, it does look a lot like the app I posted when I ran as this guy for Western Germany in the 1970 IG elections))

Player ID: Honecker
Notable previous player roles: Margot Feist

Character Name: Margot Feist
Party: Socialist Unity Party of Germany
Powerbases (Pick Three): The KPD, the Red Army Faction, the Lower Classes

400 word explanation of your plans:

As the German people grow disillusioned with their failing governing class they note that on the other side of the wall that there is a country that works, a country with a functioning democracy - one where they will not fall between the cracks of society but shall live at the heart of it. It began with murmuring, muttering and then turned into a movement. At the Berlin Wall thousands of West Berliners called to the border guards, waving red flags - they called for a better future! They asked for the neutrality of Germany and the achievement of Socialism on German soil and as the GDR border guards allowed them all to come to East Berlin to live their new life it became clear to the world that something had changed.

Faced with unemployment, rising inflation and a declining exports industry these citizens decided to give life in the GDR a chance - they were tired of hearing empty propaganda. On arrival they found that they had everything they needed to live a perfectly normal life. This was a country that is authentically German and has resisted the decadence found in West Germany. Radio reports and newspapers called for the establishments of collectives all across the BRD and eventually popular uprisings took place in the major cities. The marginalised took control of the main stream and the unthinkable was said.

Let us join the GDR! In March 1971 Margot Feist met with the defeated Chancellor of Germany, Willi Brandt. He had once called West Berlin the thorn in the side of the GDR, now it was the wound at the heart of world capital! He was a broken man. Cheered in the streets Chairperson Feist, who had just declared that the GDR was no longer to be part of the Warsaw Pact, but would lead a neutral and socialist nation in Germany, accepted a petition from the Bundestag in Bonn. The first free elections in years had been held in the FGR and it had resulted in a coalition between the SED and the SPD. It was time to repair the historic divide which had split the Germany people. The 5th of June 1971 would be known as the Day of German Unity and the FGR would officially become a part of the GDR. One nation, one government, one leader - Margot Feist!

:lol: I couldn't resist

After a incredibly turbulent time for Germany politically in the last few years, with three Chancellors who have lead very unsuccessful and short governments he has decided to step into the Frey to become Germany’s next leader to give Germany the much needed stability it needs to prosper and make sure that Germany's voice and opinion is heard by the rest of the world on the issues of the moment.

And he will pay particular attention to making sure that he personally makes sure to build up a good working relationship with the leaders on the United Kingdom and France- especially as these along with Germany he believes are the major powers within Europe. And these countries have an important role to play in making sure more is achieved within Europe. Also His government will make sure West Germany seeks full membership of the United Nations.

He Believes in the normalization of relations with East Germany. He disagrees strongly with the United States current foreign policy namely Vietnam, but he still sees the United states as a great ally and friend of Germany’s.

I'll give it another couple of days, but I suspect this is probably it so far. Does anybody have any thoughts so far. I'm thinking Margot ;)

Qpawn ID: Rome
Notable previous player roles: Uri Savir, Kaiser Wilhelm IV

Character name: Heinrich Jäger
Party: National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD)
Powerbases (pick three): Middle Class, Business, CDU
400 word explanation of your plans: With the downfall of the CDU regime and subsequent ending of two short back-to-back CDU governments for Germany, the National Democratic Party hopes to capitalize on the possible disillusionment of right-wing voters towards the CDU with more policies in line with the CDU platform, yet with a Nationalist edge. Since last years electoral victory propelled the NPD into the German consciousness and Bundestag, NPD Leader Heinrich Jäger hopes to continue his reform and re-branding of the only German Nationalist Party. Therefore, to further ensure that the NPD's recent success continues, Heinrich Jäger plans to once again alter the Nationalist message by announcing that the NPD is no longer associating itself to Nazism, but instead shall form a new ideology more suited for today's Germany, one which shall embrace nationalist pride with economic devotion. In that spirit, he shall continue to focus on economics, ensuring that the government gives loans to help new businesses emerge, gives a tax break on businesses, both big and small, gives increased government grants to help companies develop more technologies, more favorable conditions for economic prosperity for all, increased workers pay which would increase spending within Germany, tax breaks for Middle Class Germans, increased pay for Middle Class Germans, increased policies like more vacation pay to sway Middle Class voters, and increased cooperation between the State and Economy. He proposes to establish a cooperation council for businesses to send delegates to, who will help him and advise him and line their companies goals with that of the State. Those who do send delegates and join will be subject to further tax breaks. He also will create a new Ministry which shall specifically deal with the governments "imposing the will of the People" into its economy. He shall call it the Ministry for State and Economy. He also plans to increase spending on Police, as he believes they are inadequately equipped to deal with the massive student protests lately and the rising terrorist attacks across Europe and the world. He also plans to instill order so that "working class Germans and business leaders can get back to driving this economy forward." Since the last years election, the NPD has branded itself more economic-minded with nationalist tendencies and hopes to garner more national voters who will agree to nationalism (not racism, hopefully), strong economic policies and sustainable domestic policies.

Not the word requirement on these is 400, which is far less than you'd have to write in an election campaign, but still more than a standard nation app.

400 word explanation of your plans: Big government has failed West Germany. We need as much government as necessary with as little government as possible. Therefore, I will fuse many departments (such as Economics and Finance) to help increase the productivity of the government. He will also eliminate the Ministry of Special Tasks and Intra-German Relations. Intra-German Relations' responsibilities will be split accordingly throughout the ministries of the government. Dealing with the East Germany situation will fall under the Minister of the Interior.

I believe it is paramount that we prove to the rest of the world how great capitalism is for every man. Starting with healthcare, I will also introduce co-payments, reimbursements for unforeseen lengthened stays, and tax write-offs for using a private health insurance company rather than a public one. As for education, I will eliminate tenure in schools, replacing it with merit pay. I will also introduce free kindergarten and pre-schooling. At the end of kindergarten, each student will take a language and literacy test to see if the child is ready for the next level of learning. If not, a diagnostic test is to be given to see if the child possesses any learning disabilities.

As for energy, I will invest in nuclear energy for the southern portion of the inland grid and hydroelectricity towards the coastal grid. I will also invest in wind power near the centre of the electrical grid. I will also install at least one reactor in the centre of the grid.

As for foreign affairs, I will sit down with the East German representative (and only the East German representative) and discuss the future of the German people. If possible, the most I am willing to do is declare a ceasefire. I think that turning a blind eye to the East is dangerous not only to the East Germans, but to the West Germans as well.

As for NATO, I will be looking to halt the spread of communism. Vietnam is out of our reach, but Libya is very close. Should this war spread into mainland Europe or if the security of the FRG is in any other way threatened, I will join the war. Until then, I will monitor the situation closely. I will also be looking to the nations in South America, the Middle East, etc., to help improve relations with them so they don't go rogue and join the Communist Bloc. It is important that we keep our capitalist friends around the world as close as possible.

I'd like some votes please.

I'm currently torn between Oakland or Wolverine. While Rome's app is probably the most realistic, I think he'll struggle as the NDP with the CDU as a power base.
