How does The Monarchical System work in your nation?

Postby The Elyrion » Mon Dec 28, 2020 12:43 am

If your country has a monarchy, how does it function?

There are a few types of monarchy that can exist, such as Absolute, Constitutional, Elective and plenty more. I'm rather interested in how the nations across the planet, and across the universe's monarchy functions.

As the monarch for The United Kingdom of The Elyrion, I, King Elaminuus I will start off by explaining how the Elyrion monarchy works.

The monarchy of Elyrion is an absolute monarchy, and there are no plans to change it. To prevent potential corruption, the people of the nation gain the right to protest against the monarchy once they turn 18, and if things are dire, peacefully change or even overthrow it.
Currently, there is no plan on how Succession will work, as the nation itself is only twenty years old...

Whilst I could go into more detail about how my monarchical system works, I am anxious to hear how yours works. Perhaps your responses could inspire myself to make some changes?

Under the current Imperial Family, the House of Spaulding, and ruled by Empress Jhessan Spaulding I, the monarchy runs quite well. :p :)

The Empress rules by decree, but over the centuries the citizens have gained certain rights and privilages. Due to her own conservative/libertarian leanings Empress Jhessan tends to rule with a light hand, and tries to interfere as little as possible in ber subject's lives. Of course lingering in the back of everybody's mind in the Palentine from yeoman to noble is the Spaulding Family does control the Jaegermonster Corps, and has used them in the past to stamp out rivals, dissent, and rebellion under the "Bad Spauldings", before they became the Imperial family. Nobody in the Palentine wants to deal with Jaegermonsters tasked with restoring order. Things tend to get messy.

The House of Spaulding have only ruled the Empire for about 30 years, when Captain Spaulding I manuvered his way onto the throne after the death of the Emperor Biff the Lazy Arsed, who died with no heir or successor in place. Emperor Biff was a descendant of the Empire's founder Kimmoniwannalya the Unchaste, who united the various tribal entities over 500 years ago under her rule.

Ru has a constitutional monarchy, in which the monarch retains some key executive powers. The Emperor of Ru is the head of state, and joint head of government along with the Imperial Hand. Governing authority is limited, however, by the Ruvian Constitution which maintains a separation of powers between distinct legislative (The Imperial Senate) judicial (The Supreme Court of Ru) and executive (The Emperor and Imperial Hand, a nationally elected executive)

Upon coronation the Emperor swears to uphold and abide by the tenants and principles of the Ruvian Constitution, which is enforced by the Supreme Court and it's power of judicial review, and by the ability of the Imperial Senate, in conjunction with the Supreme Court, to impeach any member of the executive branch for cause, including the emperor himself.

The constitution provides the Emperor with roles both symbolic and political. He is the head of state and represents the state as well as the unity of the Ruvian people, he is the joint commander and chief of the armed forces, and the joint executive of government. Since the start of the Modern and Constitutional Eras, it has been traditionally for the Emperor to take a backseat role when it comes to politics, leaving the day to day business of governing to the realm to the Imperial Hand, Senate, and the secretaries of the Imperial Cabinet. Formal tradition expected the emperor to not even speak during decision making meetings, unless called on for input, to settle a dispute between the ministers, or break up an impasse, or in the case of critical emergencies. And the limited but key political powers of the Emperor reflect this idea of the Emperor as a sort of political referee who steps in only when necessary: The Emperor may compel the commencement of debate and even a formal recorded vote on pending legislation, allowing the emperor to bring an end to filibusters or end stalling tactics from a senate leader who refuses to bring a piece of legislation or judicial or cabinet appointment that the emperor wishes for the senate to rule on to a vote. The emperor also shares veto power with his Hand, a refusal from either to sign legislation will require a 2/3rds majority from the senate to be overridden. He may prevent the Hand from dismissing a member of cabinet without 2/3rds senate approval, object to the Hand's request to the senate for a formal declaration of war, triggering the 2/3rds override vote, or ask the senate to grant him special emergency authority for a set period of time. The Emperor is expected by the constitution and by tradition to act as a political independant at all times and is prohibited from joining any political party. The degree to which the emperor involves himself in politics or governance depends on the temperament of the individual monarch. Traditionally, since the reign of Lian IV, monarchs have shown a significant degree of restraint and disinterest outside of crises situations, but the previous two have been much more active, and the current young emperor Yoshio I, has displayed a strong curiosity and interest in politics, leaving many to speculate that he will take on an activist role when his regency ends.

Imperial succession is hereditary under the system of Male-Preference Primogeniture: The emperor's eldest son and his descendants take precedence over his siblings and their descendants. Elder sons take precedence over younger sons, all sons take precedence over daughters, and daughters take precedence over uncles and cousins. There have been considerable calls to modernize the imperial family by replacing this system with Absolute Cognatic Primogeniture, which grants female heirs the same rights of succession as males. However, the current emperor has indicated that he is not likely to consider a decision on this until he starts having children of his own. The current heir to the Imperial Throne is the Emperor's uncle, Crown Prince Niko.

The King is Sovereign in GN. The kingship is hereditary by male-preference primogeniture. As the embodiment of the Crown and State, he has absolute authority in all matters temporal and spiritual, subject only to divine law. This mean his writs, letters and directions have legal effect as law, if properly made. Furthermore, all land is owned radically by the Crown, imposing a reduced feudal system of land tenure.

Notably, the exercise of the Sovereign's powers is limited by the Charter of Rights by which all monarchs swear to abide. Each monarch's version of the Charter of Rights is different, and depends on his voluntary relinquishment of powers. Generally, it includes the requirement that certain laws be made only with the consent of Parliament, the method for convening Parliament, the maintenance of the established Church, and other administrative “constitutional” clauses which have full authority as law in the exercise of the executive power of the Crown for the duration of a given monarch's reign. Between accession and coronation, a new monarch is considered the “executor” of the previous monarch's powers as Sovereign.

Technically we are an elective monarchy and crowned republic. The Emperor is technically the President of the Confederation, when a new Emperor or Empress of Auzkhia is crowned, they are elected by a joint session of both houses in the Imperial Diet, the Federal Council and House of Deputies, it's largely a pro-forma thing and the only coronation ceremony that actually takes place is in Hungary, as the Emperor is also king there. To be Emperor/Empress and King/Queen of Hungary, one must be from a descendant of the current Emperor and King, Karl II and V, and he is the son of the previous Emperor and King, Otto, and his father was Emperor and King. You get the idea. There is no male primogeniture, there used to be but it was abolished overtime. And some states have even adopted elections for monarchs in which the Landtag votes to confirm the monarch and heir-apparent.

Most states are constitutional hereditary monarchies, though the city states of Hamburg, Bremen, Lübeck, and Frankfurt are all republics. The Free State of Namibia has a collective head of state, known as the council of chiefs. As in all states, a minister-president chosen from the state legislature is the head of government and has more political power.

Despite being titled as a People's Republic and ruled by a Chancellor, the political system of Yerbanistan is a de-facto absolute monarchy. Political parties are outlawed, and the Chancellor has the freedom to do whatever he pleases, without being confined by the many laws he enforces on his subjects. He can even order a person to be put to death, without trial or appeal.

The Monarchy in the North American Union functionally operates as a constitutional monarchy as seen in Britain, where the Crown's power is limited by the constitution. The Crown is the nominal head of the executive but a prime minister with a cabinet of ministers who are legitimized by the lower house of the legislature, the Grand Council, has effective power over the executive and carries out governing in the name of the Crown.

The Crown has some unique powers in the NAU's constitutional system, and is seen as the last resort to resolve disputes as the structure of the general government between the President-General and Grand Council has a system of checks and balances for important procedures, though the constitution has evolved to be a rather strong parliamentary system. The Crown can review a bill passed by the Grand Council if the viceregal representative, the President-General, reserves it for the Crown (depending on the instructions for, and the opinion of, the President-General). The Crown can disallow a bill within three years of it being passed. The Crown has the power to unilaterally dissolve or prorogue the Grand Council, or keep it sitting longer (depends on the legislation for extending sessions). In practice this would mean consulting with the NAU Cabinet on the matter. The President-General, as viceregal representative, can suggest dissolution, proroguing and other related procedures and these things only come into effect if the Grand Council consents to it. This was meant to curb excesses of colonial governors who tried to bully colonial assemblies to do what it wanted and only involved the Crown directly if there was an impasse; this was before instant communication and fast travel across the Atlantic, so compromise was encouraged as a practical matter.

As tied to the British mother country by personal union, the British Crown is the linchpin of the constitutional order in the full member states of the United British Commonwealth of Nations. All full members must agree to changes in royal titles and the line of succession. In practice, for foreign policy, the full members have full freedom and autonomy in many aspects ranging from trade to border disputes to international agreements (such as harmonizing UC Schemes of the full and associate members with treaties and agreements with countries not in the UC), and carry out external relations with legations in non-UC countries and high commissions in UC countries.

Postby Mobius and the Biscay » Tue Dec 29, 2020 10:28 am

The King of the Mobians, or the King of the Confederation as per the Constitution is the head of state and head of executive in Mobius as well as the Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Mobian Armed Forces. The Mobian monarchy is the supreme magistracy of the country, and the monarch is the holder of the highest office in Mobius.

What makes the Mobian monarchy unusual is that it's a semi-elective constitutional monarchy. The monarch is elected in a direct universal instant-runoff system with three rounds. The requirements to run for office is to be the direct descendant of the first king, Myles, and to be at least 18 years old. However, a candidate may opt-out of the election if they so desire. The first round happens from 20 to 35 days after the death of the monarch, and this is when all of the candidates compete in the election, the top five candidates then go onto round two if no one has at least fifty percent of the vote in the previous round, and the top two candidates go onto round three if no one has at least fifty percent of the vote in the previous round. The extra two rounds take place 15 days after the previous round. The winner of the election becomes the King who then has a coronation about a year after getting elected. However, this hasn't been tried yet as the nation is not even 50 years old, and is still under the rule of its first monarch who is currently 80 years old as of the time of writing.

Unlike many other European monarchs, the Mobian monarch is quite powerful, wielding quite a lot influence and authority, especially over national security and foreign policy, and is the only one in the country who may order the use of nuclear weapons even though the prime minister is in charge of the day-to-day affairs over the nation's domestic issues through the Privy Council and the Jesston State Hall.

The greatest power that the monarch has is the ability to choose a prime minister. However, because the House of Congress has the sole power to dismiss the prime minister and their Cabinet, the monarch in practice chooses the leader of the party that commands a majority over the House of Congress as prime minister. They have also the duty of arbitrating the functioning of governmental authorities for efficient service, as the head of state of Mobius. Of course, how powerful the monarch is depends on whether or not they get along with the prime minister, and if they happen to hold similar views with the prime minister (e.g. A monarch with socialist ideals may get along with a socialist prime minister, but not a conservative prime minister).

The monarch is responsible for giving a law the Royal Assent before it can become a law. However, the monarch can only give out a suspensive veto which means that they can request the Jesston State Hall to reconsider the law or at least parts of it (such a request cannot be refused but it can only be used once per law), or they can hand it over to the Supreme Court for review before it becomes law. Regardless, if the law is still passed by the legislature, and the judiciary is fine with it, the law will become law even if the monarch withholds the Royal Assent (15 days after it's passed in the legislature is when a law comes into effect assuming the monarch doesn't give it the Royal Assent, it being automatically given anyway).

The monarch may dissolve the Jesston State Hall and call a snap election, refer treaties and certain laws to a popular referendum, names and dismisses Cabinet ministers, most other officials, certain members of the Supreme Court, receive foreign ambassadors, and grant pardons or commute sentences. Most of these decisions must be countersigned by the prime minister or an appropriate minister if needed.

Another power that the monarch has is, in the event of the institutions of the Confederation, the independence of the Nation, the integrity of its territory or the fulfilment of its international commitments are under serious and immediate threat, and where the proper functioning of the constitutional public authorities is interrupted, the monarch shall, after consulting the prime minister, the speakers of the legislative houses, and the Supreme Court, exercise a limited rule by decree, something that has never been done in the history of Mobius, the precedent being set when King Myles refused to exercise a rule by decree during the Lavender Revolution in 1994.

Due to the nation's federal structure, five states in Mobius are designated by their constitutions as monarchies, though four of the five monarchical states, Albion, Alba, Voxia, and Valio, are under a constitutional hereditary monarchy ruled by separate royal families with the fifth one, Angel Island, being a semi-elective constitutional semi-theocratic monarchy with the Seigneur, a title held by yet another separate family, being elected in a system similar to how the Mobian monarch is elected. The other 14 states in Mobius are designated by their constitutions as republics.

Postby Aikoland » Tue Dec 29, 2020 12:23 pm

The Aikolandais monarchy is a constitutional monarchy that has gradually given up more and more of its power since the first constitutional checks on the monarch's power were established with the codifying of our nation's first constitution at the end of the 18th century.

Under the current constitution (which went into force in 1904), the Emperor or Empress of Aikoland is the head of state of the Empire of Aikoland and is nominally the head of the executive, as all actions carried out by Parliament are officially done in the name of the monarch and the monarch must grant royal assent to all laws passed by the legislature.

The Aikolandais monarch effectively has no more executive or political powers, beyond what is ceremonially required of them. In some cases, they still retain executive powers, but they have not been used in so long they are considered to only exist 'on paper'.

The powers which the monarch does still actively utilise are:
  • Appointing the leader of the largest party in the Chamber of Deputies to the office of Prime Minister. (Constitutionally, there is nothing stopping the monarch from appointing someone from the Senate, but no Senator has been PM since 1906)
  • Formally appoints the member's of the Prime Minister's Cabinet after they have been approved by the Chamber of Deputies in order to form His or Her Majesty's Government.
  • Is the Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Aikolandais Armed Forces and has the sole official authority to declare war or make peace with other nations. (In practise, the monarch has delegated the authority to make war or peace to the Ministry of Defence)
  • Is responsible for the formal opening and dissolution of the chambers of Parliament. (In the modern day, they only dissolve either of the chambers of Parliament immediately prior to an election. They still retain the power to dissolve both the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate and force a simultaneous election at-will, but this has not occurred since 1903.
  • Grants royal assent to all legislation passed by Parliament. (They can refuse to grant assent, but this has not happened since the early 19th century)
  • Can grant pardons and amnesties towards any individual or group for any crimes.
  • May confer titles of nobility or awards to citizens of Aikoland, including the creation of new titles of nobility at-will

Royal succession has been based upon absolute primogeniture since 1985, with the heir to the throne always being the eldest son or daughter 'of sound mental capacity' of the current monarch. Prior to the adoption of absolute primogeniture, royal succession in Aikoland was based upon male-preference primogeniture.

The current Aikolandais monarch is Empress Élisabeth IV, who came to the throne in 1992 following the abdication of her father, Emperor Édouard IV. The current heir-apparent to the Aikolandais throne is Princess Alexandra, the eldest daughter of Élisabeth IV and her husband, Prince Alexandre.

The Yuzhnaslav monarchy is a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy. The monarch holds the title "Tsar/Tsarina of the Yuzhnaslavs", and is the head of state and undertakes various official, ceremonial, diplomatic and representational duties. As the monarchy is constitutional the monarch is limited to functions such as bestowing honours and appointing the prime minister, which are performed in a non-partisan manner. The monarch is also Head of the Yuzhnaslav Armed Forces. The current monarch is Tsar Dimitar VI, who is the first and only monarch of Yuzhnaslavia thus far. The position was established in 1965 following a civil war, and was preceded by the position "Tsar of Bulgaria" (Dimitar VI held the title between July 13, 1940 and November 12, 1965).

Royal succession has been based on absolute primogeniture since 2015. The current heir apparent is the nephew of Dimitar VI, Tsesarevich Konstantin. Lately, power has slowly been shifting from Dimitar to Konstantin, due to Dimitar's old age of 99.

Prior to 2002, the Bulgarian Orthodox Church held significant influence in the monarchy. However, Tsar Dimitar VI's wishes to marry a man saw a split with the church (same-sex marriage was illegal at the time). With the support of the public and the government, the church's influence was stripped back dramatically. This action saw Yuzhnaslavia becoming one of the last countries in Europe to transition to secularism. To this day, the Bulgarian Orthodox Church (along with other churches) holds little to no power and influence in the government and monarchy.

Aldina is a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy ruled by an Emperor (or Empress), who serves as head of state and whose representative, the Imperial Chancellor, serves as head of government. The Chancellor oversees a unicameral legislative body known as the Imperial Senate, as well as an internal decision-making body known as the Imperial Cabinet. Laws and motions may originate in the Senate, or they may originate in the Cabinet (or even the monarchy itself) and be passed down to it, but the Senate has the final say; even the Emperor is subject to their rulings. The authority of the Senate (and every other Imperial governing body) is theoretically derived from the Emperor's will, but in practice the monarchy is largely insulated from the legislative process; the Emperor may propose motions, and has the power to appoint a Chancellor, but otherwise exercises no direct control over the Senate outside of extraordinary circumstances. (In theory, the Chancellor is only the Emperor's representative, and thus the Emperor may refuse to appoint a Chancellor and instead oversee the Senate directly, but this has never happened.)

The Empire of Great Hekktorium, otherwise known as the The Most Serene Empire of Syagros, or in certain parts of the world, the Trojan Empire, is a Semi-Constitutional Parliamentary Monarchy.

His majesty, Emperor Vulcan Alēxxīus saō Ðardanexia, the 20th of his name, serves as Head-of-state, and serves with Prime Minister Kelestria Chae serves as a dual executive head-of-government.

In Syagros, legislation originates in the Imperial Senate, known in Syagros as The Urbānioś Palace.

After debate between the two-hundred member, unicameral body, the Prime Minister and Emperor must meet with the Imperial-Executive Council, known colloquially as The Council Of Nine, in which nine expert-advisors help the Prime Minister and Emperor render a decision.

For a bill to pass, both must agree to sign-onto it.

A 'veto' from either will force the bill to return to the Senate, where it will need a 2-thirds majority of Senators, 134, to overcome the veto.

Independently, the Prime Minister acts as a chief-legislator, guiding debates over a bill, and exercising their authority over the majority coalition. The Emperor may not take part in legislative-deliberations, but acts as a final stamp of approval.

The Emperor can also deliver decree's.

A Senatorial-Decree requires a vote by the Senate, and is an executive order with the force of law until it is specifically repealed later, by the Emperor or his successors. Senatorial-Decrees are equivalent in power to a Constitutional Amendment in the U.S., they require a qualified-majority, 125, to repeal, and the signature of the Emperor, or a super-majority of Senators and the Prime Minister's signature to overcome the will of the Emperor, if it happens to be the case that the two disagree. Senatorial-Decree's differ from normal legislation, in that they originate from the Emperor. Senatorial-Decree's must have the backing of the Prime Minister, or alternatively, three Senators. The Prime Minister may also issue Senatorial-Decree's.

A normal, Imperial Decree is issued directly by the Emperor, and require no prior backing from the Senate and cannot be repealed. Imperial Decree's are very much also like executive orders, but more so, because they only last so long as an Emperor lives. When he dies, his successor can choose to halt the order immediately. Only the Emperor may issue an Imperial Decree.

In a Semi-Constitutional Monarchy like Syagros, the Emperor maintains the same power as the Senate, but agrees to respect the Democratic process. He is highly engaged in the political process, however, rarely, can be censored, by a supermajority of Senators (150) of deemed appropriate. All Imperial Decree's are rendered null-and-void unless approved by the Prime Minister, who then takes direct control of the executive, and acts as the Emperor's regent. This is used when an Emperor is extremely ill, or, in special cases, is deemed to have broken the contract between the Senate and Crown. This has never happened in practice however, and Emperor's are generally viewed as the exalted head of Syagros.


The Emperor is a super-President with a crown and life-time appointment, in a sense.

In my case the Monarchy was an example of what not to do. Or We wouldn't be a Republic.

There still some few monarchy supporters but tend to be desunite as there 3 branches of the Royal family that want their own candidate crowned.
Monarchic parties are legal but very minoritary as they normally have less than 3% watershed to get a seat in the Parliament if the participation is High and they use to be from reactionary right. They have very little support outside high class posh circles, that are close when the exmonarches socialize, where you often see "green" ties and other "green" details. Green is Verd in language. VERD is an acronym for Visca El Rei De ... Or Hail the King of ...
Green color in alt right homages to the "volunteers" that fought in the Wehrmacht 269th Regiment in the East Front. Doesn't help to make the exroyal family cause popular. Neither their life of playboys abroad with their sexual, booze, drugs, murders and economic scandals.
Being the last a yatch party (orgy to be precise) in Eivissa waters with drugs and over 100 without facemasks this summer that ended with the Coastguard boarding the yatch and arresting the 20 Yo Royal descendant and after, a fine large fine and various charges including possession. Expelling her from the country in a tourist class flight. With the threat of going to jail if She crosses the border.

The monarchy in the Astrocracy is an absolute monarchy that's slowly transitioning to more constitutional system. Empress Marasiah still holds most of the authority but is working to cede some power to the Senate and local governments.

Despite its small size, Alzatia has one of the most powerful monarchs in the world, and it's one of the two remaining absolute monarchies in Europe (along with the Holy See). Alzatian monarchs hold the title Prince (Fôrscht) or Princess (Fôrschtin), and have power over all legislative and judicial affairs. They may choose to devolve or delegate some powers, but aren't under any obligation to. There's also no expectation of neutrality or impartiality, and monarchs can (and do) intervene in legal cases, picking the side that they favor most. The monarchy in Alzatia is hereditary, being passed down along the male line of the royal family to the eldest offspring. It's customary for every monarch to be coronated by a priest, but this ceremony isn't mandatory—the status is automatically conferred at the moment of death or abdication of the previous monarch. The current holder of the title is Princess Veroniek, who assumed the rulership in 2013.

Akara is a constitutional monarchy, where most power is invested in democratic institutions such as the Royal Diet and the Prime Minister. However, the King still maintains the right of royal prerogative, and can at his own discretion override any decision by the Diet or disband the institution entirely. This however, rarely happens, though the power was used by Queen Sophia from 1998 to 2002, in which the country was de facto an absolute monarchy. Succession is based on male primogeniture, though if the outgoing monarch has no sons, his daughter may take succeed him.

Postby Vallermoore » Wed Dec 30, 2020 6:38 pm

Originally the monarchy was a Queendom where the Queen was expected to be lesbian and to pick a worthy and adult successor, thus avoiding child monarchs and insane monarchs. Queen Yocasta the First fell in love with a male, married him, and had a daughter who died in her teenage years, causing the Queen to go insane, abducting people's daughters to forcibly adopt them and then kill them when they failed to be just like her orginal daughter. She was overthrown and one Amber took her place, and in trying to right wrongs let out all the criminals along with the political prisoners. After her overthrow, the people stripped the monarchy of most of it's powers. The armed forces do technically swear an oath of loyalty to the monarchy, and if Parliament cannot make it's mind on an issue for more then a month the monarch decides on the issue. Also, the Queen has her own political party in Parliament although it does not have that many seats.

It doesn't.

The Imperial "Monarchy" is nonexistent. Only the Emperor leads Mandicoria, its subjects, and the other client states. He will never die, never be ousted, never be usurped. He is eternal, and so is his Empire. All of his subjects are blessed to have such a dedicated ruler that has given up even death to lead the nation forevermore.

While Jershaland is a parliamentary republic, there exists a monarchy for the Jersha people in general. The King of the Jersha is a strictly ceremonial position, and is not even a governmental position or mentioned in law. It is solely a cultural institution. The position is hereditary, with the King believing to be a descendant of the semi-legendary King Jersha, the so-called founder and first leader of the Jersha people.

The Government of the Monarchy Diarcesian is formally referred to as the Cybernesa. It was codified by Zotic in 863. The government in its current form is led by the Archonate. The Monarch serves as first among equals, and the 19 other archons can serve as an advisor in one to several hypurgea (ministries) for their respective ministers.

Some of the functions of the Archonate include:

  • Presiding over the declaration and conclusion of wars

  • Maintaining the threshold of entry to the rolls of honor

  • Commanding the Forces of Diarcesia

  • Establishing procedures for the implementation of laws

  • Providing essential public services

  • Establishing a national budget

THE ARCHONS

The Prime Archon (Protarcho)
Tier 1: The Monarch - Head of State and Head of Government

The Senior Archons (Megalarchontes)
The tiers are ordered by a line of succession. In case of death or retirement, the position is passed to the designated archon of the lower tier number.
Tier 2: Triarchs
Tier 3: Heptarchs
Tier 4a: The First to Fourth Nonarchs

The Junior Archons (Micrarchontes)
Elections are held every five years to elect the five most junior Nonarchs, who can hold office for an indefinite number of terms. A junior Nonarch will be promoted to the senior Nonarchy and will no longer be bound by the election cycle once (a) a senior Nonarch exits the position, in the case of the Fifth Archon or (b) chosen by a Heptarch as its successor.
Tier 4b: The Fifth to Ninth Nonarchs

Basically, the Light is the monarch here. He will live forever.
Then you have the Aristocracy which consists of the Strazhnist Aristocratic Council and the Strazhnist Aristocracy.

In the Aristocracy, people will do an election similar to electing representatives in the US electoral system. They vote among each others who they think are best fit for decision making roles. Then, those who were voted for continue to vote among THEIRselves, which decides who is in the Council.

Anyone can make it to the Council if they are worthy enough.
