This, if I understand you right, is the system in use in senate elections
in Australia. 95% of the voters follow party recommendations
(http://www.aec.gov.au/pubs/factfiles/factsheet7.htm). It's much the same
in Malta (http://www.maltadata.com) even though you have no possibility to
vote "above the line" there. You might as well have open list PR, which is
much easier to implement.

Good sites on PR:
Douglas Amy
Mike Ossipoff

If you can read German there are more.
