Your nation's exact government make-up

Postby Justosia » Mon Oct 08, 2018 7:57 am

We all know the current government labels leave much to be desired for those of us who love detail.

For Justosia, Constitutional Monarchy comes closest to Monarchist Republic (much more accurate). Our King has most the same powers, authority, etc as an American president + royal prestige of course. The Senate Nationale's power is also firmly vested. Constitutionally obligated to report to the Senate twice yearly. The Senate only, makes law.

The King is also the Senate tie breaker. Signs laws. Can enact Royal Edicts (Executive Orders).

50 districts & Lords (Governors).

Tchud is also a monarchical republic.

The Emperor holds the titles of both Emperor of Tchud (a hereditary, primarily religious position as the head of the Temple of Tchud, as well as the constitutionally limited head of state) and President of the Republic (an officially elected but de facto hereditary, secular position at the head of government) meaning that he has both secular and religious power over the nation.

Below him is the Senate, a relatively weak institution that serves to represent the interests of the Tribes of the Tchudi and of the Whites. There are 50 representatives in the Senate - 2 for each of the 20 Tchudi tribes, 2 for the Whites, and 8 for the Temple. The Senate has the power to approve or amend the Emperor's budget, as well as to approve or amend his laws. It doesn't have the power to make its own budget or legislation, and its amendments may be rejected by the Emperor if he so wishes.

The nation is a constitutional monarchy.

The Queen has the powers of a president of a republic, although the Lord Regent, who is appointed by the Queen from a pool of candidates who, in turn, are chosen technocratically rather than democratically, is there to advise the Queen and keep the queen's powers in check, with the Queen having to have her actions approved by the Lord Regent.

The Prime Minister functions in the same manner as, say, the British or the Japanese PM.

Atlantis is an MT nation that is the third richest country in the world, behind only China and the United States. It is closer to the USA, UK, Italy and Spain (in that order, though Italy and Spain is probably tied) culturally than it is Greece. It is also a naval power.

And no, Atlantis is not underwater: It has a land area around the size of France.

Pros: Classical liberalism, democracy, the West, Brexit, Viktor Orban, free education, strong military
Cons: Authoritarianism, fascism, communism, multiculturalism, Islamism

We are an absolute monarchy, but due to the size of our country, the Emperor delegates power on issues he personally doesn't have time to handle. The Emperor reigns from the Imperial Palace in San Francisco, CA.

Most power on the Imperial level is delegated to the Imperial Council, which consists of Ministers handpicked by the Emperor to run the Imperial Ministries. An Imperial Minister has near-absolute power over their area of governance unless overruled by the Emperor, but is completely powerless outside of it. (For example, the Minister of Agriculture has complete power over agricultural policy, but can't create law not relating to agriculture.) Each Imperial Ministry is headquartered in a different major city.

The Imperial Senate consists of elected officials who advise the Emperor and resolve disputes between Imperial Ministries, but holds little power to actually make laws. Each State sends two Imperial Senators, but the votes of each Senator are weighted by their State's population. The Imperial Senate meets in Oakland, CA.

Each State has its own government to handle local affairs, and the vast majority of State governments are democratically elected. The balance of powers between the Governor and the State Legislature varies from state to state, with some states having an all powerful legislature, a near-dictatorial Governor, or anything in between. The State governments are required to rule from their State's largest city.
IC name is "Empire of America", but it was taken by a former nation.

Silver Commonwealth is a totalitarian republic (Or rather a collection of decentralized republics), which elects its President-Governors only after they die, or are kicked out of the office, and elections are only for party members, and common citizens don't have a big say in picking the leaders.

Gandoor is a unitary parliamentary republic led by a Prime Minister who is both the head of government and the head of state.

The Prime Minister is determined by whichever party gains the majority of seats in the Forum following National Elections, which occur every six years. Per Gandoorese law, a party may 'nominate' any party member for the office of Prime Minister so long as they are a Member of the Forum at the time of the election and, per tradition, it is typically the party leader. Regardless of whoever the party nominates for the office of Prime Minister, they are required to resign from their seat in the Forum upon taking office. The Prime Minister may only serve for a maximum of two six-year terms. They are also the Commander-in-Chief of the National Military of the Democratic Republic of Gandoor.

The Forum is the legislature of Gandoor, it is a unicameral legislature with 1000 seats, 125 for each administrative division. The Forum is responsible for the creation of laws (although laws must formally be signed by the Prime Minister in order to pass into law, the Forum can vote to sign it in lieu of the PM if they refuse to pass a law) and the approval of any declarations of war proposed by the Prime Minister. The Forum can also call for a motion of no-confidence every three months. If the motion passes (which requires a simple majority of 501 votes), then the Prime Minister is required to immediately resign from office and the current Head of the Forum (The Head of the Forum is not officially a Member of the Forum but is responsible for taking roll, overseeing debates and votes, maintaining proper parliamentary conduct [they can order a Member to leave the premises for conduct unbecoming a politician for the rest of that day's meeting or suspend them for up to one month from all Forum procedures], and can serve as a tiebreaker vote if necessary] becomes the new Prime Minister and finishes the term. (Much like in the United States, if the current term was less than halfway finished, then that counts as their first term and they can only serve for one more term, but if the term was more than halfway finished, then they can serve for two additional full terms)

In addition to their duties regarding the creation of legislation and the appointment (and potential removal) of the Prime Minister, the Forum also recommends judges to be appointed to the High Court by the Prime Minister. These recommendations are not considered binding and the Prime Minster may choose to appoint someone else, but it is considered proper for them to appoint who the Forum recommends. (Judges on the High Court can serve for 15 year terms before needing to be reappointed with no limit for how many times they can be reappointed)

Each of our eight administrative divisions, called yons, are governed by a House, a unicameral legislature of 150, and led by a Governor. As a unitary state, any powers that the yons hold is limited to the powers and authority that the Forum has delegated to them. Yons have limited authority to create their own laws and may only create laws that pertain to subjects delegated to them. Some of the subjects that have been delegated to the yons include: law enforcement (there is technically only one police force in Gandoor but the yon divisions operate independently while still being accountable to the national minimum standards of police conduct and behaviour), education (partially, they must meet the national minimum educational requirements and standards but may set their own standards beyond the national requirement), agricultural policies, hunting law, construction and housing (the central government is responsible for public housing, however), and notary law.

The Gandoor City Capital District, who have no representation in the Forum, has many of the same authorities and powers delegated to them as the yons, but lacks a House and a Governor. The Capital District is instead led by the Mayor of Gandoor City and the City Council of Gandoor City, who have authority over the other towns located within the Capital District as well.

Avinaa is a semi-presidential parliamentary republic under a federal system of government. The president is elected by the people every four years and appoints a member of the Federal National Assembly that can win confidence in the House of Representatives as prime minister who then (with his/her approval) appoints a cabinet. The National Assembly, made up of the House and Senate serve as the nation's legislators who are elected every fours years in the middle of a president's term. When the president and prime minister are of opposing parties or coalitions cohabitation, which happens often, begins.

The country is divided into 40 states all of which must have a republican form of government. Three different forms of government currently are used by the States. The first is a parliamentary system where the state legislature elects a premier and a ceremonial governor this is used by 29 states. The second system, used by 10 states is a gubernatorial democracy where the people elect an empowered governor is the chief executive and is elected independently from the legislature. The third system is used by one state, Valentina. In this system the state legislature elects a premier, but the federal president appoints, by recommendation from the premier a "special representative" to act as the ceremonial head of the state. This is a hold over from the Valentina's long history as a colony of Avinaa and political leaders simply haven't changed the state's constitution.

Vallermoore was once run by an autocratic line of Queens, but after one Queen went insane centuries ago and then the one afterwards let chaos break out, it became a democracy. The ruler is the President of the Central Committee, the equvilent of a Prime Minister, who is the leader of the largest political party in the Parliament. Below him is the Central Committee which has the important ministers in it, and below that is the Council with the less important ministers.

Lanzio is a liberal democracy and a unitary republic. The President is directly elected by the people every six years; presidents may only serve one six-year term. Although they serve as head of state the position of the President is mostly ceremonial, with the real power residing with the government (the Prime Minister and their cabinet). Prime ministers sit in the Assembly (our unicameral legislature) and are held directly to account along with their government - also called the cabinet. The President has veto power over any bill passed by the Assembly but may not block it if it passes for a second time. Elections to the Assembly take place every three years, and we have a majoritarian system in which the top two candidates in each constituency face off a week later unless one candidate wins an outright majority of the vote the first time around. There is no term limit for Prime Ministers, although lasting two terms in the job is quite rare - actually in the last six years we have had five!

The Kingdom of Vedastia is a federal timocratic constitutional monarchy divided into 32 semi-sovereign cantons with the monarch wielding executive power. The monarch must either assent to legislation passed by both houses of parliament, refuse assent to said legislation, or assent to parts of said legislation while refusing assent to others.

The monarch can appoint anyone to the office of Prime Minister in theory, but is typically the leader of the largest party/coalition in either house of Parliament.

Parliament is divided into the Senate (Spanish: Senado; Vedastian: Xenat; upper house) and the Chamber of Deputies (Spanish: Cámara de Diputados; Vedastian: Kamar vun Teputatii; lower house). The Senate is composed of 64 senators, with two senators chosen by each canton in staggered terms of four years. The Chamber of Deputies is composed of 1000 deputies, 500 of which are chosen by single seat electoral districts using instant-runoff voting, and the other 500 are chosen by proportional representation in cantonal electoral blocs (single transferable vote calculated using the Sainte-Laguë method).

We are a Constitutional Non-Hereditary Monarchy. We start with a Senate is elected by the people. The Senate than has control over who the Monarch is, and can remove and appoint a new Monarch by 3/4 majority at any time (although Monarchs traditionally serve for life, unless they do something pretty bad). The Senate appoints the Royal Court justices, while the King appoints the Cabinet (the Senate doesn't confirm Cabinet members, but they can impeach them). Finally, local governments exist to focus on local issues. They have very little power.

The King can issue Royal Decrees, but the Senate can strike them down. The King and Senate work together to make laws (although the Senate can override the King's veto with a 2/3 majority vote).

So, essentially, the Senate is the most powerful branch, but the King has the most decision making responsibilities.

Westminster-style unicameral parliamentary democracy with a consitutional monarchy. Parliament is made up of one house, the House of Commons, elected via mixed-member proportional representation with 150 MPs that represent geographical constituencies, and 50 list MPs who are elected via party list. The Prime Minister leads and selects their Cabinet, who then each appoint a "Secretary Minister" to assist with their roles within Cabinet. The Cabinet is also opposed by the Official Opposition and their Shadow Cabinet, who appoint Opposition Critics who's jobs it is to scrutinise the Government and it's policies. Parliament can be dissolved at any time by either the King or the Governor General, although this has never happened without a sitting Prime Minister requesting Parliament be dissolved or a vote of no confidence happening. Elections are held every 3 years unless an early election is held.
