2009 – Germany (Popular Vote only)

Germany has had a bumpy ride through the world economic crisis, but citizens are mostly satisfied with Chancellor Merkel’s handling of the crisis. Yet the Grand Coalition of CDU/CSU and SPD is unwilling to continue. Parties are searching for controversial issues to fight it out. Merkel seeks to keep power with a new partner. But with an established five-party system, coalition prospects are unsafe at any time. Will the campaign end in a grand surprise?

This scenario is the 2009 Chancellor Forever campaign remade for the infinity engine. Although the hybrid electoral system is not implemented in the engine, I have updated the scenario so we have a playable base campaign with is easily amendable should the Hare-Niemayer system come to the infinity engines.

Saskatchewan – 1944

With Canada in the midst of World War II, the Liberals extended their term to six years to provide ‘stability’. However, an economy that never recovered from the Depression and poor farming conditions have swung voters towards a young minister with bold new ideas. Can Tommy Douglas take the CCF into power and into history as the first socialist government in North America?

1986 – Alberta

Premier Don Getty seeks his first mandate from Alberta voters. The New Democrats under Ray Martin have steadily risen in the polls due to Getty’s unpopularity. Anything less than Lougheed’s massive majority will be seen as a failure for Getty. Faced with high unemployment and low oil prices, can Don Getty maintain Lougheed’s string of massive majorities?

1989 – Alberta

Premier Don Getty has called a snap election less than 3 years into his term. The New Democrats under Ray Martin and the Liberals under Laurence Decore have steadily risen in the polls. Faced with an economic recession, high unemployment, failing oil prices, large deficits and failed government-funded companies, can Don Getty maintain his majority?

Canada – 1968

After two Liberal minority governments in a row, Canadians are once again heading to the polls to choose their next government. Will the Liberals win for a third time with the effects of Trudeaumania gripping the country and possibly secure a majority, or will Stanfield’s Conservatives secure a decisive victory?

Canada – 1867

The Dominion of Canada has been created. Will Sir John A. Macdonald carry the Conservative party to power and be elected the first Prime Minister, or will George Brown bring together the Liberal party and win a surprise victory? The results of this election will decide the fate of the new country, in its many tests and trials soon to come.

Australia 1975 – The Dismissal

A series of controversial decisions has culminated in Governor-General John Kerr’s dismissal of Prime Minister Gough Whitlam and his appointment of Malcolm Fraser, who did not have a lower house majority, in his place. Whitlam’s supporters are furious at Kerr’s actions, but many voters are more concerned about his turbulent handling of the economy.
