The Platform of the Progressive Monarchist Party

Monarchy

One of our primary objectives is to reestablish a monarchy in Aurentina in order preserve the tradition and culture of our nation. We hope to do through joining the Commonwealth Realm. Becoming a Commonwealth Realm will also have the added benefit of strengthening our ties with nations such as the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. We do not seek to establish the monarchy through revolution or force but with the popular support of the people of this nation via a democratic vote. As supporters of secularism we would oppose any move to give our nations monarch religious titles.

Defence and Foreign Policy

We believe that our nation should seek membership of the United Nations and the Commonwealth of Nations as soon as possible to increase our presence on the world stage. We do believe we should forge strong relationships with other European nations and engage in trade with them, however we do not believe that joining the EU in it's current state would be beneficial for our nation. We would be open to the idea of alliances with other nations in order to maintain the safety of our nation. We believe that we should maintain a well trained and well equipped military, but we don't believe it should be excessively large. We support a policy of humanitarian interventionism and our military should be capable of some power projection to reflect this policy. We do, however, recognise that we shouldn't be acting as the 'world police' so we support having a vote before we engage in any war that isn't to defend us or one of our allies. We should work closely with other nations for the advancement of science and technology, as sharing knowledge will benefit all nations.

Welfare

We support the creation of a welfare state to help those who are disadvantaged and there should be benefits provided to those who are unable to work due to disability as well as pensions for the elderly. We recognise that some hardworking people are unable to find jobs so we support unemployment benefits but that there are also those who are unwilling to work so we will also mandate that those claiming unemployment benefits over an extended period of time must be actively trying to find employment or be working on gaining qualifications. Free childcare should also be provided to single parents so they are able to work and contribute to society. We also support the creation of a national health service that will be free for all citizens of this nation to use, although private healthcare providers would still be able to exist.

Education

We believe that a good education system is essential for the future of our nation so we support a system of well-funded primary and secondary schools run by the state that will be free for children to attend. We believe that religious schools shouldn't receive government funding. We also support allowing a system private and home schooling, provided they follow certain guidelines. In regards to tertiary education we support providing subsidies so that higher education does not become a large economic struggle for those seeking it.

Economy

We recognise the benefits of both a state-run economy and a market economy and we thus support a mixed economy to achieve a balance between the two. We support the nationalisation of some utilises and infrastructure in order to ensure that they provide a high quality service and are run for the benefit of the people. We also believe that a progressive tax system is both the fairest and most sensible system of taxation. The right for workers to unionise should be protected.

Society and Culture

We support the separation of church and state and the right to freedom of and from religion. We recognise that English is the majority language however we also realise that Aurentine is the language of a significant minority so both should be recognised as official languages. Schools should have the option of teaching Aurentine and signs in areas with a large Aurentine-speaking population should be printed in both English and Aurentine. However, language is fundamentally a tool of communication and should be treated as such and not as a nationalistic political weapon. We believe that museums and art galleys should be set up to display the history and culture of our nation and that sites of great historical or cultural significance should be protected.

Law and Order

We support a well funded police force to keep the streets of our nation safe. There must be a focus on rehabilitating people in order to prevent re-offending and make former criminals an asset to society. This is especially true for youth offenders. We oppose the death penalty and torture as forms of punishment, believing them to be archaic and having no place in a civilised society.

Drugs and Alcohol

We support a system similar to that of Germany regarding alcohol and that we should encourage drinking responsibly, rather than teetotalism. Smoking, and other drugs that harm those around the user should not be permitted in public places. We also support the legalisation, taxation and regulation of cannabis for recreational purposes and support free rehabilitation programs for those with addictions to any drugs.

Other Issues

We support the development of sustainable energy sources in order to ensure the survival of our nation and believe that reducing pollution is an important goal. We recognise that skilled immigrants are an asset to this nation, however we also believe that we should be in control of our own borders and should keep immigration at reasonable levels. We support a giving genuine asylum seekers the right to live here. We support gun control based on that of the United Kingdom. Our public transport system should be developed as it is both more efficient and less polluting than cars.

BREAKING NEWS

A large bomb has just gone off in the Senate building. Fortunately, today's Senate business had already ended and the Senators, along with most of their staff, had already left. However, 18 staffers have been found killed. The identities of the deceased staffers are not yet known, but it is believed that staffers from all political parties were affected.

The police have detained two assailants who were seen fleeing from the scene. The suspects are wearing swastika armbands, so it is believed that a neo-Nazi group is responsible for the attacks. The police are attempting to interrogate them, but they refuse to say a word.

Other assailants are known to have escaped, however, and they are on the run, armed and dangerous. It is believed that there are about a dozen terrorists in total. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, and the government is watching known neo-Nazi groups for signs that they carried out the attack.

Police and military forces are on very high alert throughout the nation. People have been advised to report suspicious activity to the authorities. In the capital city, a phone hotline has been set up for anyone to report whatever they may know about the attack or the attackers.

The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women: Same as the name implies
The Convention on the Rights of the Child: Children's status
International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights: Guarantees civil and political rights
The International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance: Three guesses what this does.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights: The most translated document of all times and the basis of many national civil right charters

The only thing I have minor issues with is The Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, but provided we can evaluate asylum seekers individually to see if their case is valid then it's all good as far as I can see.

Definition of refugee/asylum seeker in the convention:
"A person who owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country; or who, not having a nationality and being outside the country of his former habitual residence as a result of such events, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to it.."

The 2 clauses against turning back refugees:
"No Contracting State shall expel or return ('refouler') a refugee in any manner whatsoever to the frontiers of territories where his life or freedom would be threatened on account of his race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social or political opinion"
"The Contracting States shall not impose penalties, on account of their illegal entry or presence, on refugees who, coming directly from a territory where their life or freedom was threatened in the sense of article 1, enter or are present in their territory without authorization, provided they present themselves without delay to the authorities and show good cause for their illegal entry or presence."

Since the convention does not define well-founded, it is up to national governments to investigate the legitimacy of the claimants' claims.

EDIT: Now that we cleared that up, would you like to sponsor?
