From Board to Republic

Election Day.

I have a feeling that in FatLand 3, FatLanders will reluctantly approve a republic type government with a Senate and a House of Representatives which will replace the present Board type of government. Protesters will argue that the Board form of government, while useful during the earlier years of FatLand, is simply inhibiting democracy and the free expressions of choice. Having senators and congresspeople, they argue, will make government in FatLand more responsive to the concerns of FatLanders. Those opposing the change/reform will argue that the republic type of government will make it easier for lobbyists to line the pockets of legislators.

Solution: No lobbying allowed.

But will such a form of government also divide FatLanders from each other and cause factions to grow?
