All the video is true, except for the last part where the government decides to switch to STV

Quick question: In the White Tiger scenario, how do you decide which citizens' votes are the 'extra' ones? Realistically, not all of White Tiger voters would have the same second choice, so which votes you're counting matters.

The solution I can think of would be to add partial votes of everyone's second choice. 32/65 of White Tiger's votes are extra, so every White Tiger voter's second choice gets 32/65 (about half) of a vote.

What would actually happen though?

The great take away from this is that politics is all a big zoo.

There's a bill that was introduced in Congress that would change House elections to STV. it's called the Fair Representation Act. Smaller states that have less than 3 representatives would use Alternative Vote. We need to get this passed. Contact your congresspeople, contact your House candidates, vote for the people who'll vote for the Fair Representation Act and vote against those who won't. If you can't find out, vote against your incumbent no matter what party s/he is. Feel free to vote the new guy out when you actually can because you have a voting system that works. Post about it on social media. Awareness is the most important thing. We actually have an opportunity to make America a true republic. We need to take it.

The monkeys know full well this would be better for us. But it wouldn't be better for them, and right now they're in charge.

That is precisely the Australian system, except subsequent numbers like 2, 3, 4 don't hold the same unit value as 1. It's complex but the kangaroo's count the votes anyway.

It just looks so clean, intuitive and perfect tbh. Is there a hidden flaw or something? Im confused

How do you decide whose votes are “extra”? Is it just luck of the draw?

This is how the Senate in Australia is elected. The House of Reps is elected with Preferential/Alternative vote.

The jungle council later accused Queen Lion of being an absolute monarch and started a communist revolution and beheaded her.

What about if the monkey’s run a disinformation campaign to stop the new voting system! 😨

I’d vote for that turtle, on the stickers.

Dutch system:
- Divide the number of votes through the number of seats in the counsil/parliament available.
- Result is the number of votes a party needs to get one seat council/parliament, not percentages, because percentages are incredibly messy.
- number of seats for each party (or species of animal in this case) is determined by how many times that threshold is passed.
This way most of the animals are represented in a correct way, unless you voted on a party that got under like, 0,7% of the votes. This also means leftover votes don't need to be redistributed after passing the threshold as seen at .
If you have more than 4 or 5 parties, this also means that it's very unlikely for one party to dominate the voting in the council/parliament, which means all parliament members will have to keep in mind the interests of the other parties when making decisions, causing consensus-based policies to be taken.
