Political Roleplaying Game - Island of Idra
Hey, I have an idea for a Political Roleplaying Game.
I'm working on a fictional island called Idra that consists of three nations: Grutania, Lorimon and Thurvaldia.

Grutania is a kingdom with a parliamentary system, where elite people called regents have the ability to vote. Other people have no voting rights, but can elect a regent to be their voter. The king still remains some political privileges. The following ideas for political organisations are:

Party
Regentist Party (basically a sort of conservative liberalism, like the Republican Party)
Democratic Block (basically progressive/social liberalism, like the Democratic Party)
Three Star Movement (radical democratic socialism, like the Green Party)
National Conservative Party (conservatism, royalism)
Union of Traditional Royalists (absolute monarchy)
Communist Party of Grutania (communism, marxism)

Organisations
Anarchist Federation of Idra (anarchism)

Lorimon is a free fought country, seperated from the Idran Kingdom (ruled by the dynasty that now rules Grutania) by a rebellion of anarchists and left-wing nationalists. It has always been a leftist nation, with an old conservative elite who stood on the side of the Idran Kingdom. The following ideas for political organisations are:

Parties
Lorimon Socialist Party (social democracy, originally left wing seperatists)
People's Patriotic Front (Leninism, originally a seperatist movement)
Elisian Unionist Party (conservative unionism, royalism)

Organisations
Anarchist Federation of Idra
Maladarian Unit (fascism, absolute monarchy)


Thurvaldia is just like Lorimon a nation that has fought itself free from the Idran Kingdom. The majority of Thurvaldians live an agrarian life, with a small conservative elite in the capital and surrounding areas. There are two governments: one an agrarian socialist confederation with its main power in the middle and south of the nation and one conservative government with its main power in the north. They each claim to be the one true government of the country, though the country is officially united.
Political orgs are:

Parties
Regentist Party of Thurvaldia (conservative liberalism with a royalist flank)
Equalist Union (social liberalism with a social democratic flank)

Organisations
General Union of Workers and Peasants (anarchism, agrarian socialism, socialist regionalism)
Conservative Farmers Movement (agrarian conservatism)
Libertarian Communist League (platformist anarcho-communism)
Anarchist Federation of Idra


I don't know yet what game mechanics to use, looking for people to help me with that.

Also, I'm decidedly anti-fascist so fascism is only for roleplaying, not actual sympathy with it.

Political Roleplaying Game - Island of Idra
Also, I could use help in general to make this game a fun experience.
