    The Washingtana Model, also known as Washingtanan Post-Afunhumaninterism, is, from a META sense only, a spinoff of Montanan Post-Afunhumaninterism that is slightly more moderate on transhumanism as well as more progressive. Outside of that, it is an economically right to far-right, culturally center to center-left, nationalistic, and civically liberal to libertarian ideology espoused in the nation of Washingtana. Its economics are mainly Chicagoan/Hayekian (and to some extent, Austrian) while its social-cultural policy is mildly progressive (easily passing as progressive-conservative).

    Parties

    Right-Libertarian Party

    The Right-Libertarian Party, originally a major division of the National Coalition of the Northwest, is one of Washingtana's largest parties, focusing on not prioritizing social-cultural issues and instead focusing on the economy, specifically in the Chicagoan and Austrian schools. It has a more nationalistic stance, and pushes to help benefit Washingtana and its economy through free markets, technological advancement, and free trade.

    Washingtanans for Progress

    Washingtanans for Progress, the largest progressive party in Washingtana, is the second-largest party in the nation. It, as its name suggests, intends to push for societal and technological progress on all fronts, including civil rights, technological advancement, missions to space, and drug legalization. it really is not against focusing on culture as a whole (unlike the RLP), but it has a cultural focus as it believes that doing so will help fix the culture to become more liberalistic and open.

    National Coalition of the Northwest

    The National Coalition of the Northwest, once the largest party in the nation right after its schism with the SNF, is at this point a major conservative movement dedicated to preserving America's traditional values, specifically those that have roots dating back to the early 17th century. It is more or less a successor to the GOP and/or the Libertarian Party. While not as conservative as their northern neighbors would wish, they are still the most major bulwark for conservatism in Washingtana.

    Traditional Democrats

    Ah yes, the Traditional Democrats. Despite not being traditionalist in any way (they're more progressive than not), the traditional Democrats claim the title as the successor of the Democratic Party in the nation of Washingtana. Pushing for Keynesian economic policy, the Democrats are a major force in driving up regulatory policies in many places where they have the majority.

    Washingtanans for Compassion

    Washingtanans for Compassion, a more conservative alternative to the Democratic Party, is majorly pro-welfare and moderately against the legalization of drugs. As one of the parties that was once one of the largest parties in the nation, it has a lasting footprint on society as a whole. Welfare and the abolition of capital punishment are two major themes espoused by the party.

    Green Party of Washingtana

    The green Party, just as you'd expect, has a major emphasis on...ahem...preserving the environment. Despite never being the biggest party in Washingtana, it does have a major influence on society with the development of CRISPR moss and nuclear fusion. The party does openly support moderate levels of regulation, but not to the point where the economy goes full Keynesian or...yes, State Capitalist. Most of the party is bright-green, seeking to use technological advancement as a tool to preserve the environment.

    Free Welfarist Coalition

    The Free Welfarist Coalition is a smaller and relatively new party in Washingtana that holds an emphasis on libertarianism and small government as well as a welfare state. Many major members support establishing something similar to a night-watchman state with only four functions: police: military, law, and welfare. The party is also in favor of civil rights and equality for minority groups, and it tends to be culturally left of center.

    Workers' Party for Democracy

    The Workers' Party for Democracy, Washingtana's newest left-wing movement, is the successor of the Radical Association of the Northwest, which was banned from office mid-2020s amid the Washingtana-SNF schism. The party is debatably Washingtana's only socialist movement, albeit not necessarily using socialism to achieve a communist end-goal. The party is, as expected, both socially and economically left-wing, but the party is ambiguous on civics. The party, along with Washingtanans for Progress, is the only Washingtanan party in the federal government to have originated in the former SNF.

    Party for Religious Order

    Agh yes, the party of northern sycophants and Sweetgrass. The Party for Religious Order is a major far-right fascist party in Washingtana. While outside of funding the latest Interstate 13 widening project, they have no real impact on the nation as a whole besides funding ACF troopers to go through the country from time to time. The party advocates for many highly illiberal policies, including the outlawing of sodomy, the death penalty for abortion practitioners, an extremely high income tax on salaries higher than $60k (as well as a 99% sin tax on soft drugs before banning them), and as you would expect, the elimination of the separation between church and state.

    Government System

    The Washingtana Model's governmental system is a constitutional federal tricameral presidential semi-democratic republic. As opposed to a bicameral government such as present-day United States, the legislative branch of Washingtana has three houses: the Senate, House of Tribunes, and the House of Censors. The government works very similar to that of present-day USA, but with some of its own unique quirks. The Senate has 100 seats, the House of Tribunes has 400 seats, and the House of Censors has 100 seats (Total: 600 seats). Impeachment trials (including those of state governors and presidents) and Supreme Court justice elections must pass through the House of Censors (as opposed to the Senate). The House of Censors will also vote to overturn vetos if the Senate and House of Tribunes decide to overturn a presidential veto with a majority of at least half but not any more than three-quarters. The House of Censors is elected every 8 years by the people; every 8 years, each party with more than 20 people within the Senate and House of Tribunes cumulatively will nominate up to 30 elected officials (max. 4 from within the federal government) within their parties. Each party will be able to nominate a maximum of 30 elected officials (max. 4 from within the federal government) from their party for the House of Censors elections; each official cannot have already served two terms in the House of Censors. The House of Censors will accept individuals from state governments if the party members in the federal government approve of them being nominated. All state governments are bicameral.

    Besides this, it's pretty much identical to the United States governmental system.

    Every election, the tribune/senator/censor districts will be decided using a population heat map that ensures that each district, which elects one official, is roughly equal in population to any other district.

    Effective After the 2042 APZ-Washingtana Merger

    The Washingtana Model's governmental system is a constitutional federal tricameral presidential semi-democratic republic. As opposed to a bicameral government such as present-day United States, the legislative branch of Washingtana has three houses: the Senate, House of Tribunes, and the House of Censors. The government works very similar to that of present-day USA, but with some of its own unique quirks. The Senate has 5 seats per state (85 total), the House of Tribunes has 500 seats (the # of people elected here from each state is proportional to its population), and the House of Censors has 5 seats per state (85 total) (Total: 570 seats). Impeachment trials (including those of state governors and presidents) are brought up in either the House of Tribunes or the Senate and are brought up to the House of Censors for trial. Supreme Court justice elections must pass through the House of Censors (as opposed to the Senate). The House of Censors will also vote to overturn presidential vetos if the Senate and House of Tribunes decide to overturn a presidential veto with a majority of at least half but not any more than three-quarters. The House of Censors is elected every 8 years by the people; every 8 years, each party with more than 20 people within the Senate and House of Tribunes cumulatively will nominate up to 30 elected officials from different levels of government in their state that can be as low as city councils. Censor and Senator districts are one in the same. Each state has 5 senator-censor districts while its number of tribune districts will be based on population. Besides this, it's pretty much identical to the United States governmental system. The new Washingtana-APZ merger has 17 states.

    Subnational Works

    Washingtana has multiple subnational units, each one being a conglomeration of counties that are near each other. The subnational units are:

    • Oregon (capital is Salem)
    • Washington (capital is Spokane)
    • Idaho (capital is Boise)
    • Montana (capital is Helena)
    • Wyoming (capital is Buffalo)

    Subnational units do have some authority over their respective territories. State highways are denoted with the prefix respective to the state that they are in.

    Each subnational unit has its own government, most of which are bicameral presidential systems. Every state sends 20 senators and 20 censors to Spokane while the number of tribunes sent by each state is proportioned based on population. The states will determine which areas vote for which number representative.

    States are divided into first-order divisions, which are divided into counties, which contain the cities. The number of first-order divisions for each state is usually between 4 and 10. Wyoming does not officially have first-order divisions.
