Politics would consist of endless lively debates, occasional fistfights, and every now and then a giant amphibian coming in and swallowing a representative whole.
Dear God, this would improve American politics immensely. For one, people would actually watch C-SPAN, if for no other reason than to see who got eaten today.

I propose the creation of a dank memecracy. All further proposals must be contained within shitposts. All in favour of this motion say 'aye'.

Probably there would be sweeping attempts made at restructuring the political system and bureaucracy by the tiny minority of Bay12 users who actually care about politics, but they'd be made too fast and somewhat haphazardly, with little attention paid to popular opinion, and the whole thing would fall apart into a mess of assassination, fistfighting, and (now much more literal) toadhammering. Either that, or the whole state will run as before but Toady One gets a multimillion dollar grant through the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

Even if you found a suitable opening, I doubt it would prove all too satisfying. And it might leave some nasty wounds, depending on the moral high ground's geology.

I would immediately begin maneuvering to increase my own personal power and prestige. And also money.

In fact I'd say our first act should be to get control or rights over something we can be bribed about. Later we can have long debates about whether or not to use or abuse our power.

Again: SWORDS FOR EVERYONE.

Yes, literally everyone.

Yes, literally literally.

Yes, even if you don't want a sword, it's my first step towards better gun control: learn how to use a sword, you have to be REALLY fucking mad to want to shank someone with a sword, they're scary, it's difficult, and you gotta be up close.

Yes, I said gun control, the improved coordination and such from practicing with a sword will help when you move on to learning how to assume a proper stance and learning breathing exercises are all important when properly controlling your gun, I don't know why this is so difficult but hey if I can use it as an excuse to equip children with swords we're one step closer to grade school gladiator battles uh... I mean... reduced gun crime?

Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

We are willing to deal with them if they are willing to deal with us. We will put Bay12 first. When I look at it I see great potential. Great potential. We will make Bay12 great again.

That's a 1+ for your candidature from me.

Since no one has claimed state's forestry, I'm goin to claim it. First thing I'm going to change: All lumberjacks are obliged to use swords from MaxTM. That's a free equipment over there! I'll also probably add some things to get a well balanced forest management sooner or later.

I claim the ministry of Truth. Don't worry. As long as you all behave, I won't deny your existence.
