Accountable Government

The Nilkawtians have long attempted to ensure their governments are accountable.  As with any other society, this is easier said than done.  The results of elections, especially when looking at the qualities, or lack of them, of winning candidates, is often considered to be a bad joke.  Here is a little history:

Improving Nilkawt into perpetuity


Since the most recent constitutional crisis and state of emergency, many Nilkawtian traditions have been reviewed and modified.  Clarity about the existing levels of government continues to be sought by the official investigators.

The announcement of the election result is unlikely to be known for at least a week and perhaps not for several months.  It is hoped there will not be a Hike Kawt challenge this time.

It has often been noted with some admiration in diplomatic circles that even though Nilkawt is one of the world's most enlightened democracies it has no political parties.
