The 8th Culture Competitions was the eighth biannual design event held in The Leftist Assembly, hosted by Minister of Information Soviet Catgirls from 18 to 28 May 2021. The event was held to select a new regional arthropod, bird, coat of arms, flora, motto, and poem.

The submissions stage was held from 18 to 25 May, followed by the voting stage from 25 to 28 May.

Methodology[edit | edit source]

Voter eligibility[edit | edit source]

To be eligible to vote, a nation must be an electoral citizen, which requires that individual to reside in The Leftist Assembly with their World Assembly nation (World Assembly citizen), or to have their World Assembly nation be registered in an affiliated anti-fascist military (Military Voting citizen) or an allied NSLeft region (dual citizen).

Counting[edit | edit source]

The single transferable voting (STV) system is used, whereby voters rank the options in order of their preference. The primary vote of each option is then tallied, and the option with the least votes is eliminated and their votes preferentially distributed in a repeated process until one option achieves a majority.
