Honorifics in YN.

Postby Van Hool Islands » Mon Jan 22, 2018 5:32 pm

The Van Hool system of honorifics (titles given to certain people/politicians, e.g. The Honourable, His/Her Worship, or His/Her Excellency) is based off the British system, with some differences, rather than the Dutch system. Honorifics and those who they are granted to are listed below;

In the Socialist Union, Honorifics are publicly banned due to promoting a social hierarchy, social competition, and favouritism. However, there are two non official Honorifics that are used in the Socialist Union.

Doktor - The title Doktor applies to those who hold at least a fourth level tertiary degree. Some occupations in the Socialist Union that require a minimum of a fourth level tertiary degree are medical doctoring, dentistry, neurosurgery, advanced psychology, or advanced scientific research occupations.

Professor - The title Professor applies to those who have occupations in higher academic ranks in tertiary education, especially in universities. Some occupations that may indirectly hold this title are Tertiary Professors, experts in arts or science, university researches, or assistant professors.

The Empress is addressed as either "Majesty" in formal settings, or "Madame" under more casual circumstances.

Prominent and distinguished Sidhae are addressed as "Lord/Lady". The use of this honorific doesn't suggest an actual noble rank, but merely a status of high distinction.

Sidhae of roughly equal rank demonstrate respect and maintain social distance simply by referring to each other by their rank and/or nomen, i.e., surname, since the use of one's given name implies a very close friendship or romantic involvement.

A superior will typically refer to subordinates as "Mister/Miss", respectfully suggesting subordinate status, while subordinates will refer to their superior as "Sir/Madam". The use of rank is also acceptable and is widely used interchangeably.

Slaves and domestic servants are expected to address their master as "Dominus/Domina", i.e., "master/mistress". Sidhae other than one's master regardless of their status are to be referred as "Sir/Madam" in the very least.
Freedom doesn't mean being able to do as one please, but rather not to do as one doesn't please.

A fool sees religion as the truth. A smart man sees religion as a lie. A ruler sees religion as a useful tool.

The more God in one's mouth, the less in one's heart.

Majesty, His/Her/Your
The style of "Majesty" is reserved for the Sovereign of Orange-Bourgogne and, if that be a male, his Queen Consort. The Sovereign is differently addressed in various parts of the United Kingdom. For example, in the Province of England, he is addressed "His Majesty The King", while in the Duchy of Bourgogne, he is addressed "His Grace The Duke of Bourgogne".

Sire
The style of "Sire" is reserved for the Sovereign of Orange-Bourgogne. It is used in oral conversations when first the style of "Majesty" is used.

Madam
The style of "Madam" (pronounced Ma'am) is reserved for a Queen, whether that is a Queen Regnant or a Queen Consort. It is used in oral conversations when first the more formal style is used.

Serene Highness, His/Her/Your
This style is reserved for foreign reigning monarchs. This style takes precedence over all other styles. Therefore, the current Queen Consort of Orange-Bourgogne can also be properly addressed by the style Her Serene Highness The Princess of Monaco-Monte Carlo.

Illustrious Highness, His/Her/Your
This style is reserved for foreign non-reigning monarchs and members of foreign (non-)reigning dynasties. The rank of the foreign dynasty does not matter, therefore, for example, there is no difference in an "Imperial Highness" or a "Royal Highness".

Royal Highness, His/Her/Your
This style is reserved for Members of the Royal House and Members of the Royal Family. The former category consists of the reigning monarch and his descendants in the male line, while the latter category is broader.

Grace, His/Her
This style is reserved for Dukes/Duchesses of the Realm.

The Most Honourable
This style is reserved for Marquesses/Marchionesses of the Realm and wives of Marquesses.

The Right Honourable
This style is reserved for:
- Earls/Countesses of the Realm and wives of Earls;
- Viscounts/Viscountesses of the Realm and wives of Viscounts;
- Barons/Baronesses of the Realm and wives of Barons;
- Members of His Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, who also use the post-nominal letters of "PC".

The Honourable
This style is reserved for children of a Peer/Peeress of the Realm. It is also used for various judicial officeholders, such as Magistrates in the Courts of Appeal. The style is also used for Members of Parliament, however, only when they are in their respective House. Otherwise, such Members use the post-nominal letters of "MP".

The Learned
May be used by certain (former) judicial officeholders. It is always used as the last pre-nominal letters. For example: "The Right Honourable and Learned Baroness X".

The (Most/Very) Reverend
These styles are used by certain officeholders within the Church of Orange-Bourgogne. Other religions may not bestow similar styles.

Dowager
Is used by all widows of peers. It is put before their titles. For example: "The Right Honourable The Dowager Duchess of X".

Besides these styles, there are various other pre-nominal letters and post-nominal letters. These could mean a variety of things. "Sir" is used for Baronets of the Realm and those who have been knighted (Dame would be the female equivalent). KK means that the person is a Knight Companion in the Most Noble Order of the Kingfisher (the national animal), while the prefix of "Professor" merely points out the fact that the holder is a senior lecturer at an accredited university.

Government officials
His/Her/Their Excellency: The President and Ambassadors to sovereign nations. Title is retained for life.

The Honorable/Your Honor: The Premier, Cabinet ministers, members of either house of Skupstina, judges, heads of independent agencies, and university Chancellors. Title is not retained for life by legislators (other than the Speaker) or agency heads. If an agency is governed by a commission, only the current Chairperson receives the style.

These titles are only used in very formal situations, when addressing someone it is more common to address them as "Mister/Madame <title>" in English, and "Padin <title>" in Lancovian.

Ecclesiastic honorifics
His Beatitude: The Patriarch of Lancov
His Eminence: Archbishops of the Lancovian Orthodox Church, bishops and archbishops of the Lancovian Orthodox Church Outside Lancov (LOCOL)
His Grace: Bishops of the Lancovian Orthodox Church
The Reverend: Priests and deacons of the Lancovian Orthodox Church and LOCOL. Spoken: Father <given name>
The Very Reverend: Archpriests and hieromonks of the Lancovian Orthodox Church. (These titles are not used in LOCOL.) Spoken: Father <given name>
The Right Reverend: Abbots Spoken: Father Abbot

Islamic clerics do not customarily use honorifics, but are permitted by the Islamic Council of Lancov to use "The Reverend" if they so choose.

His/Her Majesty: The ruling Monarch, The Queen, or the King Consort
"Your Majesty, Majesty"

His/Her Grace: Members of the royal family who aren't the ruling Monarch or his/her spouse
"Your Grace"

His/Her Excellency: Ambassadors and government officials of foreign nations who are acting as representatives of their monarch. In the cases of nations without a monarchy, they are given whichever honorific their home nations would grant them as an alternative.
"Your Excellency"

Lord/Lady: members of the Ruvian nobility: Dukes/Duchesses, High Lords/Ladies, and Lords/Ladies and their families. (kind of a catch-all for nobles, the proper title of Dukes/Duchesses and High Lords/High Ladies can be used in more formal addresses and in situations where pointing out specific ranks is called for, but generally Lord/Lady was considered acceptable for all nobility.) Also for members of the Privy Council/Imperial Cabinet, whether they are members of the nobility or not.
"My Lord, My Lady" -serves as a catch-all address for all non-royal nobility that ranks above oneself, including Knights.

Sir: Knights, landed or otherwise

Chancellor, Governor, Senator, Consul: modern titles for modern offices. Senators and Consuls are democratically elected legislators, The Chancellor is a democratically elected national executive, governors are democratically elected provincial executives.

The Honorable: court justices of all levels
"Your Honor"

Lord Commander: captains of royal city watches, the Monarch's White Cloaks, and other special military orders
"My Lord"

His Eminence: The High Priest of the Caellian Faith
"Your Eminence"

His Reverence: Cardinals of the Caellian Faith
"Your Reverence"

His Worship: Bishops of the Caellian Faith
"Your Worship"

Father: Priests of the Caellian Faith

Mr./Mrs./Miss: honorifics to show formal respect to those not otherwise covered. (a modern invention, commoners were not entitled to last names until the reign of King Aiden VIII, who successfully eliminated all legal distinction between the nobility and the common man.
A civilization with an over 3,000 year history of lizard people killing each other and enslaving everyone else. Now they've finally calmed down and formed a modern westernized constitutional monarchy. (long live King Yoshio!)
