Proper Form of Address for Your Leader

Postby San Lumen » Sat Mar 16, 2019 9:44 pm

In San Lumen the King/Queen's formal title is His/Her Royal and Imperial Majesty though using the term Your Majesty is often considered acceptable

The Prime Minister is simply called Prime Minister. There is no formal title.

What's the proper form of address in your country?

Valentijn “De Sierlijke en Vrij Valkyrie General” Samantha Maxwell Delta Weston Stijn Angelus Tracey Mitchell Marnix Svw. Constantine Sein Lin Zaw Naing can be called by many names, like literally.

For military and formalities, people will have to call him "General" or "Gen. Valentijn".

For the 95% of the time, people just call him "Valentijn" without the proper titles, or "Val-dude". We are a bit more down-to-Earth and friendly towards each other even in positions of power. :P

His Exalted Royal President or His Exalted President

The King is addressed properly as 'Your Majesty', and thereafter, 'Sire'. Members of the Royal Family with the title or rank of 'Prince' or equivalent are permitted to address him as 'My Seigneur'.

The Prime Minister is addressed 'Your Grace'. Social equals (such as senior peers) would address him as 'Mr Prime Minister', or 'Limmes'. 'My Lord Treasurer' is also used in Parliament.

There isn't actually an official address, some may call the leader Mr. President (most common), or even just by the first name, which is always Gael.

The sovereign is usually addressed by their title, most commonly 'Empress' (though this can occasionally vary; the sovereign is entitled to modify their official title). 'My Empress' is the formal address for citizens, but obviously foreigners aren't expected to refer to her as their sovereign.

There are no hard and fast rules, though, and basically anything goes where a clear attempt at showing respect is made, and where the address is not inconsistent with a royal title. "Majesty', 'Grace', 'Highness' etc all work. In any case, most sovereigns haven't really cared that much about it, and would probably let a mistake go unless it's obviously meant to be an insult.

In formal situations, the Prime Minister is addressed as such:
The Honourable [NAME], Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of Gandoor

In the case of our current Prime Minister in specific, it would be:
The Honourable Nikolai Olanovich Semenov, Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of Gandoor

In informal situations, they can simply be addressed as 'Prime Minister [NAME]', optionally with the inclusion of ', of Gandoor' after their name, which is often only used in a situation where you would need to distinguish them from another country's Prime Minister.

The President of the State Presidium is generally addressed by their military rank since Zhouran is a Yuhukekang-style stratocracy in which the national leadership is military-ruled with the civilian majority government being civilian. Other than that, the President of the State Presidium can be simply addressed as president instead for convenience.
