    The meeting place between the Great Plains and the Midwest, Mississippi was typically a battleground state between Labor and the Populists on one side and Republicans and the Libertarians on the other. However, in 2018 this entire political system was thrown on its head and irrevocably changed forever.

    It all started in 2016, with the rise of the Reform party. Lead by the billionaire real estate mogul Ross Ventura, the party rode the wave of populism by offering itself as an alternative to both the incompetent left and the corrupt right. While the party was lambasted on both sides for its populist authoritarianism, particularly in its advocacy for the establishment of a governor with veto holding power, the sheer charisma of Ross Ventura, who claimed to be able to "Make Mississippi Great Again" won over many voters from across the political spectrum as a protest vote against the establishment. Thus, in a surprise victory they managed to win 35 seats in the House of Representatives, leaving both the typical left and right coalitions without the needed votes to win a majority.

    As a result, Ventura's worst fears were realized as the Republicans allied themselves with Labor and the Populists to form a grand coalition to keep Reform out of power. To Ventura's supporters, this move was all the proof they needed of the fact that both sides were the same and that neither of them represented the true will of the people.

    Many of Labor's younger supporters were also very unpleased with this arrangement, especially after Labor began to surrender many internet privacy rights to please Republican corporate backers, leading to over half of Labor's youth wing deserted the party to form the Pirate Party. While formed initially as a protest of Labor's abolishment of Internet Privacy laws, they soon grew to represent more anti-establishment politics in general, seeking to end the corrupt rule of party leaders with direct democracy wherein every Mississippian would be converted into a senator, thus requiring every bill to be passed via referendum before it could become law.

    While the polling leading up the election should that the majority of the populace remained firmly against the Pirates and Reform, that all changed with the release of the October Memo. In this "memo" contained the leaked documents of the sitting government finance's which revealed nearly 5% of the state's budget was going to various labor unions and corporations that lobbied for Labor, the Populists, and the Republicans.

    Even though the sitting government of course denounced such charges as fraudulent, claiming that the "hackactivists" who released such a document where liking just working with the Pirates, the damage had already been done. With the Republicans reduced to 22 seats, Labor to 19, and the Populists to 16, their combined total fell from 99 seats to a meager 57. On the other hand, Reform once again gained a tremendous number of seats, going from 35 to 56, while the Pirate Party went from zero to 21. In the Senate, Reform and the Pirates combined captured a staggering 21 seats out of the 25 first member seats, with the traditional parties only being saved by the second members which were allocated according to voteshare in this dual-member proportional chamber.

    Despite their differences on authoritarianism both Reform and the Pirate Party, not to mention the fact that most Reform voters are senior citizens while most Pirate voters are Millennials, the two agreed that the establishment could not be allowed to keep holding onto power, and thus they decided to join forces and form a coalition government, with the Greens' help, to root out corruption once and for all. While the current government still lacks the votes needed to pass their ambitious plans for constitutional reform, which includes Reform's plans for a governor elected by the two round system, and the Pirate's plan for direct democracy in the Senate, their anti-corruption measures have been launched into full swing. With every political party in Mississippi, besides of course the infallible Reform, Pirates, and Greens, having been founded guilty of corruption charges following the shocking releases of leaked documents by various hackactivist groups a new political era in the state of Mississippi has begun.

    Government:
    Reform - A populist party founded by the billionaire Ross Ventura, their political positions vacillate from day to day based on whatever their party leader happens to say on that particular day. While denounced heavily by most political pundits for the cult of personality which has formed around Ventura, his supporters call such notions "fake news" and remain fanatically blood thirsty to see which corrupt politician their dear leader will levy charges against next.
    Pirate Party - A left libertarian party committed to the ideals of Internet Freedom and direct democracy, they are often thought of as the true brains behind the Reform lead government, using Ventura as an useful idiot to distract attention away from their true plans to ensure the establishment of a new political order in Mississippi. While their supporters continue to uphold their party's dedication to direct democracy as a shining beacon of liberty, the fact that the Pirate Party insists on using electronic voting for referendum in their future senate, have lead some to fear that electronic voting would in fact only enable "hackerocracy."
    Greens - The odd man out in a government coalition full of new anti-establishment parties, the Greens were allowed into government for their previous anti-establishment views against Labor and have been quite easily satisfied by new reforms to promote environmentally friendly practices and fine companies who pollute.

    Opposition:
    Republicans - The party of Big Business, they are still the second largest party in Mississippi, though they have less than half the number of seats as Reform does. Still being blamed for having caused the Second Great Depression in 2009, their party leader Michele Bachmann has resigned following embezzlement charges brought out against her, and has last been seen boarding her private jet to Switzerland.
    Libertarian - The party of fiscal conservatives and social liberals, their support comes mainly from the rural regions of the state which feel forgotten by Bismarck elites. However, with Reform's having also campaigned to those same forgotten people, their seat total went down significantly in the last election from 31 seats to just 20.
    Labor - The traditional leader of the center left in Mississippi, they have been overtaken by the Pirate Party in this recent election who completely stole the youth demographic, and even much of their ethnic minority base opted to instead vote for smaller parties such as Hispanos Unidos or the Black Panthers.
    Populists - The right hand party to Labor, they used to be dominant among the rural regions of Mississippi, having only the Libertarians to compete with. Now, however, they didn't even manage to win a single first member seat in the Senate, with Reform having stolen an enormous portion of their base.
    First People's Party - A party for Native Americans, their voteshare has stayed steady throughout the recent turmoil of 2016 and 2018, as their Native voters remain absolutely loyal to the party which has worked so hard to ensure their plight is not ignored.
    United Left - An alliance of socialists and communists, their seat total managed to jump up from one seat to three in 2018 as many Labor voters became disillusioned with the corrupt and compromising nature of their party.
    Constitution - The party of the religious right, they are not that strong in Mississippi, a state dominated by moderate mainline Protestants. However, they did manage to gain an extra seat from former Republican voters who went off the deep end after seeing the sheer magnitude of corruption which the GOP had been involved in.
    Hispanos Unidos - A party for centrists Hispanics, they also gained two seats in the 2018 election as many Hispanic voters deserted the corrupt Labor party.
    Black Panther Party - A party for black supremacists, they gained the same amount of seats as the UL and HU did due the death of the Labor party.
    Asian Action - A party for Asian-Americans, they did not gain any seats in the 2018 election as the vast majority of Asians already support this centrist party.
    People's Justice Party - A party for Muslim Americans, they managed to gain a seat in Mississippi for the first time in this year's election. A party known for its controversial statements which many regard as supporting Islamic terrorism, they are viewed with great suspicion for their ties to the Saudi Caliphate.

    Utah HATES Trump and I can't see them being the only Western state to support Pence over Paul. Other than that looks about right.
