The year is 2020….
…and the Republic of Albia is celebrating its 50th anniversary of being a Republic. It is also time to choose a new President, as the Hissenger era comes to a close. The Republic seems to be moving away from a more libertarian mindset to a more populist mindset. Doves feel confident that they can finally end the 14-year drought of not winning a Presidential election. Hawks are looking to continue their dominance in Presidential elections. Both parties are gearing up for a close election, but then…. GLOBAL PANDEMIC! The ROA is not sparred from the global crisis, and the consequences for the election are uncertain. Will Doves finally capture the Presidency for the first time since 2006? Will Hawks be able to nominate a strong successor to succeed the Hissenger era? Will COVID-19 send the election into a frenzy? Will vote-by-mail sway the race in any way? Will states break their traditional partisanship and vote for the other party? How will this race shape the next 50 years for the Republic? The future is in the hands of the people…
