The 1st Great Tribunal of Cavirfi (Open for Discussion)

Postby Cavirfi » Sun Apr 11, 2021 12:19 am

Hello, comrades of NationStates, this is the thread for the Great Tribunal of Cavirfi's RP and Discussion, this is the second out of forth step to making laws. In Cavirfi there are 4 steps to making laws:

  • 1st: The creation of a bill by the Chancellor of Cavirfi (which this part is for my eyes only)
  • 2nd: The validation of a bill by the Great Tribunal and the Chief Justice (which this part can be found on this thread)
  • 3rd: The approval of a bill by the Technocratic Council (which this part will be found in a WIP thread)
  • 4th: The approval of the Wolf Pack and the Great Farmer (which will also be found in another thread, also WIP)

For now, the opening ceremony of the 1st Great Tribunal will take place and the 1st Order of Discussion will be held tomorrow.

Anyways, feel free to post relevant stuff here :)

The day has come, a head and body for the grand scheme of legislative justice has been appointed, now all that it needs is feet, the feet of approval from the government of Cavirfi, the grand opening has begun.

The army had already appointed 20 men to be the ceremonial guards for the event, here to protect and act as the men who approve the entry of the new justices.

The Chamber currently has 9 chairs, with 8 chairs for the Justices and the Chief Justice, and 1 chair for the Great Farmer (in which during the ceremony, the Great Farmer will hand over this chair known as the "Throne of the Chief Justice", to the Chief Justice, signifying a legitimacy of power.).

In which everyone stands up, the instrumental begins, and everyone starts singing.

Paer de moralaen. (For morality)

Paer mael unden pasae (For love and peace).

A struggle, a mighty struggle.
Lasting 500 years.
To end tyranny
To end cruelty
In the home and state.
We are united, in our fight against hate.
Hateful division sows;
against the seeds of love.
So we reap what we sow.
We need to plant a new crop
A new crop that's peaceful and meek
Meek but still tough
Tough against evil
Evil that spreads it's roots.

Its roots is what harms us;
and what harms us, harms others.
So how do we spread peace and the benign?
When we cannot fight this root.
So fight this root, for the meek
For the meek, that is our free land
The free land for the heroic

THE FREE CAVIRFITE LAND.


Everyone may now take their seats, as the Great Farmer shall give her opening remarks.


Everyone sits down except for Margeaux in which she remains standing and opens a piece of paper, which carries the words of her opening remarks.


To the Honorable Chief Justice and the Justices of the Municipalities of the Land,

It is of dignity, that you are here, we have been in a long struggle, to preserve what is right, in a world where that is disappearing. Our nation's existence isn't a guarantee, but we managed to make it a thing, we wished it, we worked on it, and it happened; Thank you for that.

Now that, you are here, please remember, who you are working for, you are working for the people; not just "the people", but the people who have struggled, the good people who have been stigmatised, who have been wronged, and most importantly, have been driven away from the bonds of love, the bonds of hope, the bonds of peace, and most importantly the bonds of a good life.

It is here now in which you must understand the benefits AND the responsibilities of your title, you must uphold the Constitution, you must uphold the Law, you must uphold a World Against Abuse, and most importantly you must uphold what is RIGHT.

So, uphold your title, uphold our values, and lastly uphold those who will defend both.

Thank you very much.


The entire Great Tribunal claps.

Hear! Hear!


THE GREAT FARMER SHALL NOW READ THE RIGHTS AND THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE NEW LAND


In which Margeaux grabs a sheet of paper which contains the amendments and articles of the Cavirfite Constitution and begins reading it aloud.


The Rights and Responsibilities for the New Land of Love.



Preamble

We, the Wolf Pack and the new people solemnly swear to create a new land that will expand the realm of value, in a world where that kind of opportunity is continuously being rotten under the banner of "progress".

Details

The article in which the creation of this land is ratified is divided into 7 amendments and 25 articles, the amendments of this article are meant to act as sub articles pertaining to the certain rights and responsibilities of the government, the people, and the military, as well as the values that Cavirfi as a nation is built upon.



AMENDMENT I - THE CAVIRFITE VALUES

The foundation of this new nation is based on the 4 key rotting principles: Chivalry, Loyalty, Love, and Peace.

Article I - Chivalry

Chivalry, in which the medieval military orders were built on has changed over the years, as the saying goes: Chivalry Is Dead!

But with the creation of this new land, chivalry shall be revived, it's definition remodeled, and it's usage institutionalized.

Now, with the creation of Cavirfi. 17 Key Rules must be followed in order for chivalry to be valued:

1. A man must respect women, as he would respect other men.
2. A man must recognize that women, like him, are human beings. With a great sense of autonomy in thinking, sociability, and behavior.
3. A man must respect the decisions of women.
4. A man must respect other men, as he would respect women.
5. A man must recognize that other men, like him, are human beings. With a great sense of autonomy in thinking, sociability, and behavior.
6. A man must respect the decisions of other men.
7. A woman must respect men, as she would respect other women.
8. A woman must recognize that men, like her, are human beings. With a great sense of autonomy in thinking, sociability, and behavior.
9. A woman must respect the decisions of men.
10. A woman must respect other women, as she would respect men.
11. A woman must recognize that other women, like her, are human beings. With a great sense of autonomy in thinking, sociability, and behavior.
12. A woman must respect the decisions of other women.
13. A man must protect women
14. A man must protect other men
15. A women must protect men
16. A woman must protect other women.
17. Everyone shall see each other indifferently on the basis of the color of their skin, the gender they prefer most romantically, the language they speak, and lastly the gender they identify with. Everyone must see each other differently on the basis of the content of their character and must act accordingly so.

One must follow the rules of chivalry to call themselves men or women in Cavirfi, otherwise they can call themselves boys and girls instead.

Article II - Loyalty

Loyalty, be it, an essential value, crucial to diplomacy. It is the second value that Cavirfi must stand by.

For one to be worthy of calling themselves loyal they must follow 7 rules

1. One shall not betray their friends, family, and people they hold dear by accusing them of misdemeanors or felonies they never committed.
2. A man in love with a woman shall not be with another.
3. A man in love with another man shall not be with another
4. A woman in love with a man shall not be with another
5. A woman in love with another woman shall not be with another.
6. One shall not help others with the intent of reward, only to harm them (others) when such reward is failed to be presented to them (one).
7. One shall practice Chivalry while they practice Loyalty.

These rules must be followed in order for one to call themselves loyal, otherwise they can call themselves naive.

Article III - Love

Love, it is an underrated value, it moves bridges, it builds societies, it brings peace. Yet with societies that shall not be named abusing such value, no wonder they have descended into chaos.

In order for stability to remain in the new land, 4 rules.

1. One shall love his neighbor, as they would love their family, friends, and other people they hold dear.
2. One shall not hate another person as a human being, but rather one shall hate another person as a wrongdoer.
3. One shall help others in times of need, regardless of the benefits they will receive.
4. One shall practice Chivalry and Loyalty as they would practice Love.

The individual shall follow these 4 rules to call themselves a loving person, otherwise they can call themselves a poser instead.

Article IV - Peace

Peace, the fourth value, it is what builds society, without it, the average life a person would be cut short. The world and the multiverse recognizes the importance of peace.

In order for one to call themselves peaceful they must follow 4 rules

1. One shall not enter into dispute, if they are in a position where that isn't necessary. If one needs dispute to live life, they must either solve it or agree-to-disagree.
2. One in a dispute, shall solve it with words rather than fists.
3. In fact, one shall not use their fists against another, unless the other directly threatens their life. This is the right to self defense.
4. One shall practice Chivalry, Loyalty, and Love while practicing peace.

One must follow all 4 rules, to call themselves peaceful, otherwise they are in a state of neutrality.

Now that the 4 values of Cavirfi have been defined, this constution shall conclude the 1st Amendment, and begin the 2nd Amendment



Amendment II - The Rights of the State


Article V - The Rights of the Wolf Pack

The Wolf Pack shall be recognized and legitimized as the true and sole government of Cavirfi. They have powers that they can use to manage the country, the Wolf Pack shall not be recogonized as FALSE, as for this government has founded this new land, and therefore has the first Rights to use and control it.

The Rights of the Wolf Pack are as follows:

  • The Right to monitor suspicious assemblies for suspicions of terrorism and/or organized crime.
  • The Right to set up regulations without Technocratic Council Approval.
  • The Right to control government spending

These rights are permanent and can only be changed if more than three-forths of the the Technocratic Council and more than one-half of the Great Tribunal wishes so.

Article VI - The Rights of the Great Farmer

The Great Farmer shall be recognized as the sole head of state of Cavirfi. No one can identify as head of state but the Great Farmer. Any claims otherwise are FALSE, for the Great Farmer is also the leader of the Wolf Pack, and therefore has every right to it.

The Great Farmer's position can only be appointed by the Wolf Pack and any other modes are not legitimate.

The Rights of the Great Farmer are as follows:
  • The Right to block proposals for the Technocratic Council if it contradicts their vision for what Cavirfi should be.
  • The Right to dissolve the Great Tribunal
  • The Right to appoint Juries to the Great Tribunal
  • The Right to appoint the Chancellor
  • The Right to appoint the Commander-In-Chief of the military

The Chancellor shall be recognized as the Head of Government of Cavirfi, they shall be in charge of the ministries and domestic affairs of the nation.

The Chancellor is appointed by the Technocratic Council and approved by the Chancellor.

The rights of the Chancellor are:

  • The right to appoint and dissolve Technocratic Council members
  • The right to open and close Technocratic Council sessions
  • The right to make proposals for the Technocratic Council
  • The right to appoint the various ministers of the government
  • The right to approve and veto petitions

These rights are permanent and require the approval of more than 1/2 of the Parliament, 1/2 of the Federal Tribunal, and approval by the Wolf Pack for modification.

Article VIII - The Rights of the Technocratic Council

The Technocratic Council shall be recognized as the legitimate legislature of Cavirfi. As they are led by the Wolf Pack and as the Wolf Pack makes the law, the Technocratic Council shall represent them in making the laws of the land.

The Technocratic Council shall have 80 members, 10 for each municipality established in the charter code for this land. They shall be appointed by the Wolf Pack and approved by the Great Tribunal.

The rights are as follow:
  • The right to make proposals
  • The right to veto laws made by the Wolf Pack
  • The right to pass petitions on the people's behalf
  • The right to appoint and depose the Chancellor
  • The right to appoint and depose the municipal governments.

These rights are permanent and can only be changed with a unanimous decision of the Great Tribunal and more than 1/2 of the approval of the Wolf Pack.

Article IX - The Rights of the Great Tribunal

The Great Tribunal shall be recognized as the highest judiciary in all of the land. As they shall review each and every law and resolution, to see if it is in accordance to this Constitution. The Great Tribunal shall not represent the Wolf Pack or the people, but the articles in which they have written.

The Great Tribunal shall have 8 members, 1 for each municipality recognized under the charter code. The Great Tribunal shall be appointed by the Wolf Pack and approved by the Minister of Justice.

The rights of the Great Tribunal are as follows:

  • The right to cancel Martial Law if declared during peacetimes.

  • The right to carry out penalties for crimes committed during war times. (Like genocide or killing medics)

These rights are only permanent and must be approved for modification by a unanimous decision by the Technocratic Council and more than 1/2 of the Wolf Pack.

Now that all 3 branches of the government's rights have been clarified, we declare the 2nd Amendment Legitimate.

THE 1ST SESSION OF THE 1ST GREAT TRIBUNAL OF THE FREE LAND OF CAVIRFI




OOC
Legend:
Blue = The Chancellor of Cavirfi
Brown = The Chief Justice of Cavirfi
Dark Yellow = Any Justice who isn't the Chief Justice
Purple = The entire Great Tribunal
Bold black = Everyone

IC
As everyone arrives at court in waiting period before the session. The Chancellor arrives, and heads up to present her proposal for the Great Tribunal to inspect.


To the newly appointed Justices of the 1st Great Tribunal,

Congratulations for your appointments but now that the ceremony is over, shall we get to the first orders of business?


Hear!


The Chancellor then begins to read a piece of paper which contains the draft for her resolution.


Chancellery Resolution #1 - Cavirfi with Europe



We, Cavirfi, have seen the importance of international diplomacy, in maintaining peace. Therefore, Cavirfi shall seek peace through seeking diplomacy.

The Free Land of Cavirfi, upon enactment of this Resolution, will seek to apply, non-member non-applicant observer status to the European Union:

  • Defining the European Union as a regional trade union of 27 countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, The Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.
  • Defining Non-Member Non-Applicant Observer Status (NMNAOS) as a status where one nation is allowed to attend Parliamentary sessions in the European Union with being able to propose laws for the European Union but not have the ability to vote in such issues, as well as being a status where one isn't interested to become a full fledged member of the European Union.
  • Recognizing that having NMNAOS can affect Cavirfi economically through the trade regulations that the European Union passes.
  • Recognizing that Cavirfi won't be affected politically or socially compared to members of the European External Community.
  • Recognizing that having NMNAOS will only affect Cavirfi's relationship with the European Union as an entity and not its members.
  • Recognizing that NMNAOS won't affect Caviri's relationship with current NMNAOS holders.

Hereby, applying for NMNAOS, upon the enactment of this resolution.

Hereby, enforcing Resolution #1 upon approval.

Hereby, concluding Chancellery Resolution #1


Abbigail Roach then takes the Chancellor's seat and makes her judgement

Okay, so I am as Chief Justice, I am to inspect the law on behalf of the 1st Article, so Ms. Chancellor I would like to ask you a question; are there any gendered politics involved with gaining ties with the European Union?


Although feminism and gender politics is common place in European Politics, I don't think Cavirfi will be involved in it, because as it says in the resolution;

  • Recognizing that Cavirfi won't be affected politically or socially compared to members of the European External Community.
  • Recognizing that having NMNAOS will only affect Cavirfi's relationship with the European Union as an entity and not its members.

So basically, there are gender-based political issues in Europe, but it shouldn't affect Cavirfi as much.


Okay then; does the European Union's members discriminate based on gender and will this affect?


Women's rights is sort of an issue in Poland, because of recent abortion laws. However, I don't think EU members discriminate based on gender, and even if they do, I don't think it will have any major impact on us.


Okay: Does the European Union discriminate based on other forms of idenitity?


There are frankly anti-immigrant and homophobic tendencies in the politics of more conservative nations within the European Union, however even then, I think these nations are doing just fine when it comes to equality of all citizens, at least they are doing fine compared to their neighbors.


So you confirm that the European Union's members do have some tendencies that violate our values as a nation, is that correct?


Yes!


However, you also confirm that even then, it won't affect our politics if we decide to befriend them. Is that correct?


Yes!


Well then, I have no other choice but to declare that CR#1 doesn't violate the 1st Article *strikes mallet* CONSTITUTIONAL


How about the Justice of Edgebol, we would like to hear his judgement on this.


The Justice of Edgebol stands up and makes his testament


Well concerning whether or not CR#1 follows Article 2, 3, and 4.

For Article 2, there seems to be no mention of adultery or criminal accusation neither supporting or criticizing it. However, this is a resolution of commitment, and according to Article 2 "One shall not help others with the intent of reward, only to harm them (others) when such reward is failed to be presented to them (one).", CR#1 seems to mention some form of willingness to help the European Union, however CR#1 also recognizes a lack of reward or even punishment, however there seems to be no gloating over such recognition, so do I testify that CR#1 obeys Article 2? Absolutely!

For Article 3, Love, now the European Union has taken measurements against hate, it has condemned certain actions against refugees, it has supported women's rights, gay rights, and they also support a more secure social system, and I think that overall, the European Union is pro-help, and regardless of criticisms, I think it's a good part on Cavirfi to befriend such a Union.

For Article 4, the European Union is a more of a economic alliance, with no militant action involved, the EU does have a military counterpart which is NATO, however to support a non-militant alliance like the EU, I think is Peaceful.


He then makes his verdict

CONSTITUTIONAL


Now, the Great Tribunal would like to hear the testimony and verdict of the Justice of Ostry


Abu Palacios then stands up and makes his testimony


Thank you, Justice of Edgebol for letting me give my judgments.

Now for Articles 5, 6, and 7. There seems to be no allowance for the European Union to change the political status quo in Cavirfi however CR#1 does allow the European Union to influence the economy which could potentially mean control over government spending, is that correct; Ms. Chancellor?


50/50 Yes, however the only influences that the European Union has over our economy is regulations, the European Union does not have control over government spending. The EU can make requests just like what happened in 2008 with the Greek Debt Crisis, however these are merely requests and all they can do is hope that we comply, we are under no obligation to comply with such requests and can either stagnate or change to the opposite direction (of the request), our government spending.


So basically, you are saying that the European Union can regulate our economy, however they cannot control government spending, that they can only make requests, but that we are free to refuse to comply with such requests. Is that correct?


Yes, at least for so long, that we do not use the Euro, the currency of the Eurozone, a project of the European Union.


So, what we said, minus the Euro?


Yes!


Okay then.


He makes his verdict

CONSTITUTIONAL!


Okay then, now we shall hear from the Justice of Bernchinshot


He stands up.

Okay, Ms. Chief Justice. As the Justice of Ostry just said, the European Union isn't allowed political influence over Cavirfi, so Articles 8 and 9 are guaranteed, that they aren't violent, since they are political freedoms. As for Article 10, the European Union protects free speech; although there are criticisms on what the European Union defines as "free speech" however one common thing that our definition shares with the European definition; is that free speech, for so long that it doesn't incite violence against a certain group; is free speech. So I rule this...


...CONSTITUTIONAL!


Now for the Justice of Bleshe


Ms. Chief Justice. For Articles 12, 13, and 14. The European Union respects all 3, as the Justice of Edgebol just said "The EU is taken measurements against hate." So it particularly respects Article 14, now for Articles 12 and 13, does the EU respect these? I mean the Justice of Bernchinshot just said "Free speech is guaranteed" and Articles 12 and 13 of our Constitution are just extensions of said rights, so my verdict...


...CONSTITUTIONAL!


Okay now that the majority of the Great Tribunal has agreed on the Constitutionality of CR#1, do the Justice of Bornesandgrave, Ntwich, and Dsormere. Respect the decisions of the justices prior?


Hear!


Hear!


Hear!


Well then, I hereby declare, as Chief Justice of the Free Land of Cavirfi, Chancellery Resolution #1, to be legal and ready for Technocratic Council Approval


She strikes her mallet, everyone claps, and the session is over.

The Second Court Session for the First Great Tribunal



The Chancellor and the Great Farmer arrive to the court.

May the Great Tribunal have the second session?


Hear!


The Chancellor gets a piece of paper that contains the draft for Chancellery Resolution No. 2


Chancellery Resolution No. 2 - Privatise and Revamp the Cavirfite Bone China Company




We, the Wolf Pack, have recognized the failures and shortcomings of the Cavirfite Bone China Company over the past month, and we wish to increase competition with privatisation and revamping.

1. DEFINING The Cavirfite Bone China Company as a state-owned enterprise that is in charge of the production of tea, silk, and porcelain in Cavirfi.

2. DEFINING Tea as a herb from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis that is used for drinking purposes.

3. DEFINING Silk as the protein fibers of the Bombyx Mori, an agricultural worm. Used for the making of various textiles

4. DEFINING Porcelain as a ceramic material from the clay, Kaolinite. As well as bone ash and feldspathic material. Used for pottery.

5. DEFINING Privatisation as the removal of state influences in the decision making of a company owned by said state.

6. DEFINING Revamping as the closure and reopening of a company in which during the closure period, said company shall improve.

7. ACCEPTING that upon the enactment of this bill that The Cavirfite Bone China company shall be Privatised and Revamped. But under the condition that they will sell SOLELY tea, silk, and porcelain.

8. RECOGNIZING that The Cavirfite Bone China Company being owned by The Great Farmer, being Privatised will result in the loss of the ownership of The Great Farmer over the company.

9. ACCEPTING a transfer from 100% ownership of the funding of The Cavirfite Bone China Company to a 1% stake in the Cavirfite GDP will be granted to the Chancellor.

10. ACCEPTING that The Great Tribunal and The Technocratic Council will carry the infinite rights to set up a committee for inspection to show that the Great Farmer isn't abusing their newly acquired wealth.

Hereby concluding: Chancellery Resolution No. 2 - Privatise and Revamp the Cavirfite Bone China Company


Okay, now that I have presented you my draft, can I hear the testimony and verdict of the Chief Justice.


The Chancellor strikes her mallet.

Okay, thanks Ms. Chancellor.


The Chief Justice stands up.

So regarding, the constitutionality regarding Chancellery Resolution No. 2 will be discussed, now.


She then continues

Since I am the Chief Justice of Cavirfi, it is my duty to serve Cavirfi under our core value, which is based on the 1st Article, Chivalry. First of all, let us ask the Great Farmer, about the 1st Article. Your Excellency, did you write the first article of the constitution?


No.


Who did?


It was the Chancellor, your Fairness.


Okay, did you and the Chancellor have some arguments upon the amendment of this article?


Margeaux then looks at Emily, Emily stares at Margeaux, Emily nods and says to Margeaux

ISIC: "Don't lie. We did"

Margeaux then stares back to the Chief Justice.

Your excellency, please remember, that your words will be used against the constitutionality of the Chancellor's proposal.


Margeaux sighs.

We did, we did have some setbacks regarding the amendment of the 1st Article, however my setbacks are more withdrawn now then last time.


Okay then, do you respect the rules of the article now?


Yes, though I do have some disagreements, I still respect the first article.


Now, time for the 17 questions.


Margeaux sweats a bit in anxiety.

Now, I want you to answer with YOUR OPINION HONESTLY. Do not lie, if you lie, CAVIRFI WILL BE THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU ENVISIONED IT TO BE.


Alright, Your Fairness.


The Chief Justice then takes a deep breath.

Question 1: Do you think that men should respect other women as he would with other men?


Yes, I do.


Question 2: Do you think that men should respect women's autonomy?


If the man in question is in the position where he is the head of a company where a certain woman is working, does him creating labor policy that increases work hours and reduces pay, violate her autonomy?


It depends, is the hypothetical man in question, requiring all workers to do extra work WITHOUT PAY?


No, then that is slavery, and that is against our values. I am saying I respect women's autonomy, but they too should respect that if a man is in charge of the company or the workspace they are in, they should respect his decisions too.


So to Question 2, is that a 'yes'?


Conditionally, yes. Unconditionally, no.


Okay, Question 3: Do you think men should protect women?


Yes.


Question 4: Do you think men should respect other men?


Yes.


Question 5: Do you think men should respect other men's autonomy?


Conditionally, yes. Unconditionally, no. The conditions are the same as Question 2.


Question 6: Do you think men should protect other men?


Yes.


Question 7: Do you think women should respect men?


Yes.


Question 8: Do you think women should respect men's autonomy.


If men are in a position to harm this hypothetical woman, then no. If no harm is involved, then yes.


Question 9: Do you think women should protect men?


Yes.


Question 10: Do you think women should respect other women?


Yes.


Question 11: Do you think women should respect the autonomy of other women?


Yes.


Question 12: Do you think women should protect other women?


Yes.


Question 13: Do you think that everyone is equal regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion, language, sexual orientation, or gender; but rather that the only trait that shall be judged is the context of one's character?


Yes.


Are you lying about your answers?


No.


Are you sure?


Yes.


Last call.


I am sure.


Okay then.


The Chief Justice strikes her gavel

CONSTITUTIONAL!


Now, let us hear from the Justice of Edgebol. His testimony and verdict.


Corben Francis stands up

Thank you, Ms. Chief Justice.


Now, Ms. Chancellor I will ask 4 questions for Article II.


Okay.


Do you think betraying your family and friends is morally wrong?


Yes.


Do you think adultery should be a crime?


Yes.


Do you think stopping to help as punishment is 'betrayal?'


Yes.


Are you lying?


No.


Okay, now for Article III


Do you think one shall love thy neighbor?


Yes.


Do you think one shall never hate another as a human being but rather as a wrongdoer?


Yes.


Do you think help should come with no mandatory reward?


Yes.


Are you lying?


No.


Okay then, for Article IV.


Do you think conflict should be avoided as much as possible?


Yes.


And in the case of conflict, do you think violence isn't the way?


Yes.


Are you lying?


No.


Okay then.


The Justice then makes his verdict

CONSTITUTIONAL!


He strikes his gavel.

Okay, let us now hear from the Justice of Ostry


Abu Palacios stands up

Okay, now I will ask my questions to Her Excellency.


Your Excellency, do you respect the rights and autonomy of the Wolf Pack away from you?


Yes, I do.


Do you recognize the rights of the Chancellor away from yours?


Absolutely!


Lastly, do you recognize it is your duty to lead Cavirfi, in order to exercise your rights?


Y-yes!


Are you lying?


Nope, not at all.


Are you sure?


Yes!


Last call!


I am absolutely sure, Mr. Palacios.


Okay then, I shall make my verdict.


He strikes his gavel

CONSTITUTIONAL!


Okay then, can we now hear from the Justice of Bernchinshot


Kirby Rich stands up.

Thank you, Your Fairness.


Now Your Excellency, do you recognize the rights of the Technocratic Council to oppose you?


If they don't like goodness, then they aren't worthy of calling themselves 'Cavirfite'.


He makes a quick verdict.

UNCONSTITUTIONAL!


Margeaux sighs.

Ooh, first 'Unconstitutional' verdict of the year. May the Justice of Bleshe make his verdict.


She stands up.

Your Excellency, do you recognize the right to free press?


If the media is hateful, they have no right to speak.


UNCONSTITUTIONAL!


Next, the Justice of Bornesandgrave.


He stands up

Your Excellency, do you recognize the Right of the people to petition?


Sometimes, if I see it doesn't fit my vision, no.


But the people can still petition, right?


Yes!.


Okay, do you recognize the military has a right to initiate a coup d'etat, should they feel you have stray too far from your vision.


Yes, I need an entity that will keep my visions in check.


Lastly, do you recognize the military's right to conscentiously object your plans?


Like I said, I need a vision check, and the military is the appropriate entity


Are you lying?


No.


Okay then.


He makes his verdict

CONSTITUTIONAL!


Okay, now for the Justice of Ntwich.


Your Excellency, do you understand that you shall follow the Constitution?


Yes, I do.


Do you recognize, that you shall respect the rights of the people and the military?


Although, I disagree with some provisions, I do think they should exist.


Lastly, do you believe that Cavirfi shall uphold the values of the constitution?


Yes, I do.


Honest?


Yup!


Okay then, I make my verdict.


CONSTITUTIONAL!


To the Justice of Dsormere, do you respect the decisions of your peers?


Hear!

The 3rd Order of Business



The Chancellor walks inside the Great Tribunal chamber and calls the attention of everyone.

Hear!


There is a clapping noise made by the Justices

Order!


Thank you, your fairness.


The Chancellor opens up her draft to the Great Tribunal


Chancellery Resolution No. 3 - Leave: The Leftist International Treaty Alliance (LITA)



We Cavirfi, have recognized the inactivity of LITA, and our cause which is based on neutrality, requires us that we need to attack and start secession from The Leftist International Treaty Alliance.

1. DEFINING the Leftist International Treaty Alliance as an alliance of welfare states and socialist nations that are united in defending each other

2. DEFINING secession as either getting rid of national involvement in an alliance or trade union.

3. ACCEPTING that Cavirfi's military is based on the doctrines of neutrality

4. DEFINING neutrality as avoidance to commit to an alliance or union in accordance with maintaining peace.

5. ENFORCING that Cavirfi shall now seek secession from the Leftist International Treaty Alliance.

Hereby concluding, Chancellery Resolution No. 3 - Leave: The Leftist International Treaty Alliance


Okay, can I hear a verdict?


The Great Tribunal initiates a forœm-da-decidiœnen-læt (discussion-of-unanimous-confidence), which is a rare form of Estiman-style debate, where all members of a political body on all opposing sides of politics come together to discuss total agreement of a bill.

One Justice speaks up

Okay, I now grant the Justice of Ostry, the right to speak.


He stands up

Alright, we would like to say that all of us have decided that this bill is constitutional, because this is more of a concern of the alliance in question rather than Cavirfi as a nation.


Okay then.


The Chief Justice strikes her gavel.

With a unanimous verdict, CR#3 is hereby declared CONSTITUTIONAL


The session ends.
