Imperial Statement from the Pacific Order



Following several weeks of review and discussion, I, as Delegate of the Pacific and Emperor of the Pacific Order, have authorized the restructuring of the Pacific Senate and redrafted the Articles of Law into a new Charter of the Pacific. In doing so I have altered the structure of the government of the region to include three new offices to the Senate and standardized the Provincial governmental offices.

These changes include automatic registration for all citizens of the Pacific into their designated Province and the right to vote for nations that will have direct oversight to the Provinces and the Charter.

Along with this restructure comes the promotion of several nations, along with the restyling of offices for those already in the Pacific Senate. Please join me in congratulating the following nations for this recognition:

New members of the Pacific Senate:
Karenus (Quaestor)
Pergamon (Tribune)
VanguardFed (Censor)

New member of the Governor's Assembly:
Nox (Governor of Stahl Tal)

The new Charter of the Pacific:

Charter of the Pacific

Article I – Regional Government


Established September 1, 2003, the Pacific Order, also known as Pacifica, the New Pacific Order, Ordo Pacificus, or NPO, is the governing body of The Pacific region within the NationStates realm. It derives its authority and power solely from the World Assembly Delegate nation and is beholden to no outside force, offsite group, or other entity. All laws and governing documents, committees, and statutes are subject to the will of the sitting World Assembly Delegate nation. The World Assembly Delegate nation derives its authority and power solely from the nations of The Pacific and their collective endorsements of its nation. This Charter is granted to the nations and peoples of The Pacific on this authority.

Article II – Senate of the Pacific

The Senate of the Pacific, established in conjunction with the Pacific Order, and granted authority by the sitting World Assembly Delegate nation, is comprised of the following positions. These positions are appointed based on a meritocratic system with the approval of the sitting World Assembly Delegate nation:

Emperor – the title held by the World Assembly Delegate as head of state and head of government for the Pacific. Also styled as Augustus. The Emperor is the final and absolute authority within the region and within the government. The Emperor maintains veto privileges for any and all legal and functional actions.

Consul – The title held by the second highest endorsed World Assembly nation in the Pacific. This nation serves as immediate deputy to the Emperor and oversees all internal aspects of the Pacific Order. This nation has ultimate authority outside of the Emperor nation itself. The Consul, in the event of the World Assembly Delegate going inactive, or otherwise being unable to serve in its capacity, will seek to overtake the Delegate nation in overall endorsements and proclaim itself Emperor in times of grave urgency.

Praetor – The Title Held by the member of the Pacific Senate charged with the governance and operation of the Pacific Army, also known as the Revolutionary Guard. This nation has ultimate authority outside of the Emperor and/or Consul to direct, order, and engage in military operations outside of the Pacific.

Quaestor – The Title held by the member of the Pacific Senate charged with oversight of the Governor’s Assembly and the Provinces.

Tribune – The Title held by the member of the Pacific Senate charged with oversight of the High Court of the Pacific. This nation will serve as Judge for all criminal trials. The Tribune will also chair meetings of the Patrician's Assembly and establish methods by which it will operate.

Censor – The Title held by the member of the Pacific Senate charged with oversight of the Praetorian Guard. This nation will direct the Guard and ensure the timely submission of all charges to the High Court of the Pacific. This nation will serve as chief prosecutor for all criminal trials.

Article III – Provinces of the Pacific

The Pacific will be separated, as directed by the Pacific Senate, into provinces. This separation will typically be along alphanumeric demarcation for the purposes of expediency. Each Province will be responsible for electing representatives to the Patrician’s Assembly. Further, each Province of the Pacific will have a distinct government apparatus which will be autonomous from the other provinces. Every Province will have a designated set of officers as outlined below to accommodate the needs of bureaucratic governance.

Governor – the leader and director of the Province. This position is typically appointed by the Senate but can be achieved via any method deemed appropriate by the Patrician’s Assembly, with Imperial approval. The Governor is responsible for appointing the other officers of the Province.

Proconsul – The chief recruiting officer of the Province. This nation is charged with approaching nations within the Province and directing them towards the offsite governmental forums.

Aedile – The chief media officer of the Province. This nation is charged with producing Province-specific stories for the Pacific News Network and generating Provincial propaganda.

Patrician – Each Province will elect one to three Patricians to serve on the Patrician’s Assembly. These nations can be officers already with roles within the Province.

Patrician’s Assembly – This assembly is charged with forming policies and laws that encompass the Provinces, up to and including amending Capital Offenses as outlined in the Civil Code of Uniform Justice and Order in the Pacific. This includes establishing means by which Provincial Governors are selected and the establishment of new Provincial Offices. Any amendments to the Civil Code will be submitted to the Senate for their endorsement prior to approval or veto by the World Assembly Delegate. No law which compromises the security of the Pacific or the authority of the World Assembly Delegate can be passed by the Patrician’s Assembly.

Provincial Curiae – Each Province will have a Curia. These assemblies are charged with electing the Patricians. They are composed of every citizen of the provinces within the Pacific. Every citizen nation is automatically a member in good standing within their designated Provincial Curia.

Article IV – Citizenship in the Pacific

All nations within the region known as the Pacific are granted the privilege of citizenship within the Pacific Order. Citizenship is defined as having a World Assembly nation within the Pacific, endorsing both the Emperor and Consul nations, and a declaration of allegiance to the region. This declaration and any other declarative items will be defined clearly by the Senate and in the primary post of the citizenship application thread on the offsite forum. The Senate reserves the right to grant exceptions to World Assembly membership on a case by case basis and similarly reserves the right to reject any application that is deemed incomplete, untruthful, or otherwise might compromise the security of the region.

Article V – The Pacific Army

The Pacific will maintain a standing army, deemed the Revolutionary Guard, under the direction of the Praetor. The Praetor will establish a general Code of Conduct for members of the military and will establish a chain of command as needed. The Army will consist of both update active nations and auxiliary nations. Any nation seeking membership in the Revolutionary Guard must be a citizen in good standing.

Article VI – Foreign Affairs and Diplomacy

All foreign affairs and diplomacy is under the purview of the Pacific Senate. The Pacific Senate will collectively decide on Foreign Policy and designate officers within the Diplomatic Corps as necessary. All treaties and embassies must be approved by the Senate.

Article VI – The Praetorian Guard

The Praetorian Guard is the internal security force of the Pacific and is responsible for finding those within the region who are in violation of the Civil Code and reporting them to the High Court. The Praetorian Guard is also responsible for notifying violators of the Civil Code of their rights to any representation and will be responsible to differentiate between flagrant, punishable violations and those whose actions indicate they can be rehabilitated and be of service to the Order. Protecting the Regional Message Board from advertising and spam is a responsibility of all members of the Praetorian Guard. The leader of the Praetorian Guard is the Censor, a member of the Pacific Senate.

Article VII – The Pacific News Network

The Pacific shall maintain a news publication service whose responsibilities will include the education of citizens within the Pacific and other regions on the glory, grandeur, values, and excellence of the Pacific Order and its actions. This requires both factual news reports to enlighten citizens and propaganda to be shared with external regions. An Editor-In-Chief who is appointed by the Pacific Senate will coordinate the publication. The Provincial Aediles will report to the Editor-In-Chief and work with this nation to ensure a quality monthly publication schedule.

Article VIII – Amendment to the Charter

The Charter of the Pacific is a living document that evolves and grows with the needs of the region. It may be amended or updated at any time by the Emperor or Senate, with approval from the Emperor.

So nothing actually changes, and the Pacific remains a condemned oligarchy mired in stagnation? You couldn't have used your prior imperial statement thread to post this non news? Just out of curiosity, when is the planned coup of Balder set to take place?

I named four nations who have been in NationStates for less than two years (most less than one) to prominent government position and that is stagnation? We also created an elected body that has the potential to change the current legal structure of the region.

Simply because we maintain a logical and realistic view of the Delegate's authority does not make us stagnant by any stretch of the imagination.

Also, we maintain good relations with Balder and support the right of the sitting Delegate there to govern as she sees fit, so take your odd and random conspiracy theories elsewhere.

Thanks for playing, though.
