It means Purple Movement in Jelbic. Jelbic is a conlang invented by players of the game and has no real life equivalent besides being based on a Eurasian/Central Asian steppe culture.

Thank you. I thought it would be something about farmers.

You could help people by putting the translation on your page. Otherwise it's hard. This language is not on Google Translate.

While I agree with offering a translation in a real language I would urge you to study the Jelbic language and culture as well. Jelbania has a completely fictional culture. Your character shouting that Jelbic names are impossible to pronounce would probably not sit well with people in a nation where 9 in 10 people have a name like that. I know Jelbic looks terribly complicated right now but look into it! It's pretty cool. Take it from a former sceptic!

EDIT: On the Wikia and (I believe) the nation page for Jelbania you can find Jelbic dictionaries by the way.

Ya you're right it was dumb having him say that.

I tried with the Jelbic dictionary but it was no help with that translation.

TBH, I've got work and a life etc so I'd rather get on with playing the game as opposed to learning some made-up language and trying to remember how to spell a load of really long and illogical words and names.

You're welcome to play a minority party in Jelbania, I don't think anyone would oppose that quite frankly, however if you intend to play there in the long run and eventually "take over" the government through elections or whatever means, any attempt to implement a "minority" government would have significant RP blow-back. It appears that perhaps one of the more "English" nations might be more within your wheelhouse.

I though of moving but I've invested a lot of effort here now, proposing bills and patiently waiting to win my 1st seat. 10 days, still no seat, because the other party is fighting dirty with maximum legislature term and a rascally early election before I could get vis.

Well, I'd still respect the culture in place and try to adapt to Cultural Protocols. We all have a "life" and seem to be able to do it too.

Please could someone give me a Jelbic transl for "Steppe Wolf" & "Equestrian Vaulting".

Steppe Wolf would be "Jeztaghé Krt".

Can't figure out how to say "horse vaulting" though, but the dictionary does include Chvqn, defined as a "traditional Jelbic horseriding game similar to modern polo", so basically this. If anyone else has a better idea for a "horse vaulting" equivalent, please post it here.
