The Constitution of the State of Saint Hilda

Sponsors: Viktoria Ljungstrand, Anders Kaj Ehnström, Hugo Inquist



For Establishing the Government of Saint Hilda and all its necessary functions

Parliament shall be elected for terms of five years (OOC, 5 Months, each month represents a Year)

This seems a little long. We don't know where we'll be in five months, I'd suggest 2-3 months.
The Members of Parliament shall, for the time they shall be in attendance, be conferred privilege from arrest or indictment by any authority

I was more concerned about this, but after research this seems pretty kosher.
In order to do business, Parliament must reach a quorum of no less than half plus one of its members,
In order to do business with respect to any affairs regarding monetary policy, Parliament must reach a quorum of no less than a supermajority of members,
In order to hear debates, Parliament must reach a quorum of no less than one-quarter of members,

My concern is the same as before, quorums are hard to enforce or measure OOC.

Regardless of these, I believe my previous concerns have been pretty thoroughly addressed. Sponsor, Alexander Norberg, NPP.

I concur. This bill has my full support.

Clause 2b. Is that limited to just allergens, or all ingredients? ‘Cause if someone choked on a fry, that’s technically dangerous, but I don’t think we want our entire food service industry to collapse.

Just, allergens, I'll change that.

"It was not necessarily the sudden influx of precious metals into Spain and Europe that forced the economy to crash; it was their unending appetite for war and more land that undid the Spanish treasury, and forced them to take loans that they could never pay back, with disastrous implications. Instead of having a floating currency, which can be easily manipulated by the stock market's fluctuations and the acts of other, more powerful banks, or having a gold/silver standard, which, as Saint Hilda's population goes up, the amount of gold/silver backed bills would become less valuable in relative terms, I propose that Saint Hilda have a strategic basket of certain coveted materials. Not only gold, silver, dollars, and Euros would be used, but also other stuff, such as titanium, oil, and certain noble gases. We would be able to spread the risk of our currency floating over multiple commodities and markets, and we would not be pressured to either peg our currency to a standard nor to the market. Just my two cents."

Customs And Immigration Act
Author: John De Clairmont
Sponsors: Austin Miller



An Act on International Travel, Immigration, and Asylum.

BE IT THEREFORE ENACTED, as follows:



§1 -On Customs
  1. "Customs" shall be defined as any added security at legal points of entry for people who are internationally traveling
  2. Forms the Customs and Immigration Commission, a subdepartment of the Ministry of State, that determines if a potential immigrant would serve as a good citizen, distribute Visas, Naturalize immigrants, determine what additional papers are needed to pass customs, and helps immigrants find jobs and be good, working citizens.
  3. A person must have at minimum, a valid passport to pass through customs. A valid passport is defined as an international passport that hasn't expired, has correct data that matched the person trying to pass through customs, and correct official seals. The Customs and Immigration Commission may require additional papers at their discretion, if necessary, such as an entry permit or work pass, as long as it is not unfairly discriminating against people of a certain demographic.
  4. Customs inspectors must be legally trained by the Customs and Immigration Commission to be able to work.
  5. All legal points of entry Customs must have available papers to apply for asylum, while government buildings must have the J-459 form(Section 2, Paragraph 2).

§2 - On Immigration and Asylum
  1. Immigration inspectors, employed and trained by the Customs and Immigration Commission, shall determine the granting of citizenship to foreign immigrants. They shall not discriminate against immigrants based on any demographic."
  2. Potential Immigrants must fill out a form, titled J-459, which requires the applicants Full name, Date of Birth, Dates of marriage and/or Divorce, any Family members already in Saint Hilda, any family members or friends joining them as immigrants, previous employment, and Education. Inspectors will perform a background check to see criminal record as well. People applying for dual citizenship will have to go under further inspections from both nations.
  3. People may apply for Asylum if they are in danger in their home country. While someone's application being processed, they enter a state fittingly known as "Limbo" as Asylum councils in the Customs and Immigration Commission discuss their fate. While in Limbo, a person is temporarily exempt from foreign investigations, however the Asylum councils withhold the right to undo that immunity. If granted asylum, that person retains the foreign criminal immunity and receives housing from the government.

§3 - The Customs and Immigration Commission
  1. As stated in sections one and two, the Customs and Immigration Commission presides over foreign entry, immigration, and asylum. As such, the Commission has three branches: Customs, Immigration, and Asylum.
  2. "The Customs Branch shall consist of Customers Inspectors, which manage the flow of international transit; Trainers,which manage the training of Inspectors; Overseers, which oversee the operations and determine the documentation necessary for entry."
  3. The Immigration branch is similar to the Customs Branch, having Inspectors, Trainers, and Overseers. The inspectors judge whether or not a potential Immigrant would make a good citizen, and the other two are self-explanatory. There is also a council of Overseers, which regulates what makes it on the J-459 form and how in-depth inspections go.
  4. The Asylum Branch is different, however, only being made up of 5 councils of 9 individuals each, who do in-depth investigations of people up for asylum, and judge whether to grant immunity in limbo. Each council has a Chief councillor, who serves as the overseer of the council, and also all 5 Chief Councillors meet in another council, which heads the Asylum branch.
  5. All decisions are subject to override by the overseer, who can be overridden by the head council of the branch, which is subject to the Minister of State's overrule, and then the Prime Minister may overrule the Minister of State.

Austin Miller, a newly elected libertarian was so shocked he nearly jumped out of his chair when he saw bill 88. As he sat in his seat, before he could even be greeted, he motioned “I am in negation of legislative bill 88, and vote against it.”

The Essential Goods Nationalisation Bill
Author: Yanwak Naolayor


This bill seeks the free distribution of essential goods through the nationalisation of said goods.

BE IT THEREFORE ENACTED, as follows:



§1 - The Nationalisation of Essential Goods.
  1. Essential goods are defined as goods that are required for a decent life.
  2. Goods defined as such are: food, water, electricity, gas, and housing.
  3. We propose that the production and distribution of these goods be nationalised, and for these goods to be free for those who need it.

Everyone has just ignored my proposed.


“I respect your commitment to helping the people of our nation, Mr. Naolayor, but I don’t believe that central planning is the way to go. We should allow the free market, with limited regulation and public provision, to determine how these goods are distributed. It’s much more efficient and less susceptible to political corruption."

"3a and 3d are contradictory. Take this example:

You have a white male student and a hispanic female student." Henry began to talk, presenting his example.

"The white male has an average grade of, say, B+ and the hispanic female has an average grade of B-. Who ought to be admitted? In my opinion, it should be the white male. We must not discriminate against the majority ethnic groups and men in our country."
