WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

A totalitarian, socialist, fascist society ruled by a ruthless dictator known as Big Brother, the First Triumvir Donovan Xavier. The omnipresent and endlessly oppressive government is made up of four ministries: The Ministry of Truth, the Ministry of Love, the Ministry of Peace, and the Ministry of Surplus.

Takes up present-day Russia, China, Mongolia, Vietnam, and Taiwan.

Big Brother is watching you…

National Government Questionnaire

PART ONE


Please answer the following questions as fully and clearly as you can.

Nation Name: The Empire of Tangatarehua
Type of Government: Unitary parliamentary semi-constitutional diarchy
Does your nation practice devolution? To a small extent but not really
If so, please describe the powers and responsibilities, in general, of the state compared to the federal government.
If not, please describe the way of governance that the federal government uses to control all of its territory. Firstly, it's a unitary government not a federal government. Traditionally there is a hierarchy in that the Empress is sovereign and still theoretically holds unbridled power, below her is the Rangatira who can rule by decree but can be overruled by the Empress or Parliament and traditionally the Rangatira would be served by the 21 Kaitiaki, or Guardians of each region. Today the authority of the Kaitiaki is more symbolic with most power wielded centrally by Parliament.

PART TWO

Please answer the following questions as clearly and fully as you can.

What is your government's top three priorities in order of importance?
    [1] Economic growth
    [2] Education
    [3] Health and Welfare
(Devolution Nations Only) What is the state's top three priorities in order of importance?
    [1]
    [2]
    [3]
[b](Devolution Nations Only) How does the power of the state compare to that of the federal government?

Does the federal government impose an income tax? If so, then what is the average federal income tax rate? The top marginal tax rate is 33%, the bottom marginal tax rate is 10% and GST is 15%.
(Devolution Nations Only) Does the state impose an income tax? If so, then what is the average state income taxe rate?

Thank you for participating in this questionnaire!


OOC: Devolution =/= Federalism so a lot of this questionnaire was quite confusing. This quiz seems to be about federalism, not devolution.

Also, a lot of your code is broken.

National Government Questionnaire

PART ONE


Please answer the following questions as fully and clearly as you can.

Nation Name:The Commonwealth of Narland
Type of Government:Constitutional Federal Republic
Does your nation practice devolution?Federal Republicanism (full devolution) is a part of every Narlandren's heritage, culture, and political right.
If so, please describe the powers and responsibilities, in general, of the state compared to the federal government.

The Commonwealth (Commonwealth is synonymous with Federal henceforth) government is delegated 17 specific powers by the member States and the People through its Basic Law (Anglo-Narlandish Common Law), its Constitution and Bills of Rights.

Delegated Federal Powers by member States to the Commonwealth of Narland General Government
1. Protect member States against invasion, insurrection and failure of faithless servants to execute the Laws of the Commonwealth by calling forth the Militia to repel, quell and defenestrate respectively.
2. To make treaties with foreign states.
3. To make trade and commerce regular/routine between Commonwealth member States, its People, and foreign entities
4. To establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization
5. To establish uniform laws on the subject of Bankruptcies;

11. To To declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water;

13. Call forth the Militia in a limited manner.

Confine itself to exclusive legislation over Heatherbrook Canton only, to be the Seat of Government of the Commonwealth of Narland, and to exercise general authority over all places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the member State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings.
15. Lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general (not personal or private) welfare of the member States of the Commonwealth uniformly, and pass the statutes necessary and properly within its limited authority for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.
16. To ensure to every member of the Commonwealth a republican form of government in securing the blessings of Liberty, just due process, equality under law, seeing to that no persons' rights, privileges and immunities are violated individually or severally, whether by force or fraud, commission or omission, from within or from without.
17. To see that good faith and credit especially in legal matters is impartially respected among member states.

The States
The powers of each member State of the Commonwealth are delegated by its constituency. They vary according to its Basic Law, its Constitution, and Bills of Rights. They do the things typical of a sovereign liberal state except that which is exclusive to the Commonwealth government. The State of Yakama has the least delegated powers 85 (the Citizens of the having the most reserved powers allotted to them), and the Canton of Allemen has 322 (the least).

I cannot list them but a quick Internet search of the Constitutions of Idaho, Wyoming, Hawai'i, and Maine will give a good awareness of what a member State of the Commonwealth may be like.

https://sos.wyo.gov/Forms/Publications/WYConstitution.pdf
https://www.sos.mo.gov/CMSImages/Publications/CurrentMissouriConstitution.pdf

The Local Governments
Each county or municipality is chartered by its People to do hundreds if not thousands of things by voting on bonds to create special districts from basic infrastructure and public utilities to school buildings, public libraries, emergency services, etc., not otherwise provided by the public goodwill.
Real life example: https://cdn5-hosted.civiclive.com/UserFiles/Servers/Server_3585797/File/Government/County%20Departments/County%20Counsel/Homepage%20Information/HOME%20RULE%20CHARTER%20FOR%20LANE%20COUNTY%202012_12_04.pdf

The People
All political power resides in the People as individual Citizens. Each individual Citizen has maximal self-governance with his/her family and right to maximally exercise one's life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, free from hindrance by those who would disabuse them of same. They in turn form families, families form self-governing communities -- urban and rural for which to live, work, and plan, and for which the governments are formed to serve.

If not, please describe the way of governance that the federal government uses to control all of its territory.See Point 14 for what all of the federal governments territory is (not much, but it is exclusively theirs).

PART TWO


Please answer the following questions as clearly and fully as you can.

What is your government's top three priorities in order of importance?
    ]1]Exploration:
    Two years ago, the Commonwealth and Allied Nations sent the first manned vessels to Mars -- the Aethon, Phlogius, Conabus and Phobos. The Phobos broke up near the half-way point with no survivors. L5 Command lost contact with the Conabus and Phlogius as they were entering Mars high orbit, but from telescopic telemetry, it is as though they winked out of existence. The Aethon likewise "disappeared," but a week later (6 months ago) a crewman, one Major Tom Blake, was able to send a garbled message from the surface of Mars using an abandoned rover. The Commonwealth's highest priority is to send a rescue ship (which will be completed in 3 months) the Alliance Exploration Vessel "AEV Victoria-Nike" to rescue any survivors.

    [2]Defense:
    Negotiate a lasting peace between the Benganine Consortium and the Manchuko Free State before any more dirty nukes are set off by either side.

    [3]Commerce:
    Decide whether or not to enter into open reciprocity to share in scientific research and development with the Kingdom of Hawai'i and its Allies. They seem particularly interested in our advanced teleneural interlinkage technology and some recent breakthroughs in cybernetic telepresence.
(Devolution Nations Only) What is the state's top three priorities in order of importance?
    This varies from State to State, but typically

    [1]Secure the Blessings of Liberty
    [2]Domestic Tranquility / Public Safety
    [3]General Welfare (Education, State Infrastructure)

    An issue of public safety (1st World Problem): Recently Nano-tech Factory Grade Von Neuman Construction Machines (NanoFactories) have become inexpensive. The working poor are creating their own superior modes of transportation, and abandoning their unwanted old-tech yachts, aerocars, and space shuttles all across the globe (and a few cases on the moon). The Canton of Allemen is drafting legislation making vehicular abandonment of its constituents a crime even if abandoned outside its jurisdiction, punishable with a fine, and the cost of the Canton to recycle the materials and a possible stint of up to 30 days in local jail.

(Devolution Nations Only) How does the power of the state compare to that of the federal government?The federal government has the broadest jurisdiction but the least delegated powers. Its scope is the greatest but its authority is the weakest (save for those 17 tasks, in which it is supreme). The State/Canton has the an intermediary scope, but a magnitude more delegated powers. The Municipal/County Governments have the smallest jurisdiction but the broadest scope. The city council/county legislative are some of the most powerful people (within their little pond) in the Commonwealth. The greatest power resides in the Law-abiding, tax paying individual citizen to whom all of the aforementioned are their public servants.

Does the federal government impose an income tax? If so, then what is the average federal income tax rate?In the Commonwealth there are payroll taxes (taxes on monies received) and income taxes (taxes on monies from passive profits such as rents and interest). They are two different things. To avoid confusion the term income tax will be used for both payroll taxes and actual income taxes. Income tax in the traditional sense will be distinguished from payroll taxes by being referred to as passive income.

--none--. Civilian Citizens of the Commonwealth whose citizenship resides within a member State of the Commonwealth are not subject to income tax.

01.75%. Commonwealth Nationals (Citizens of the Commonwealth whose Citizenship does not reside within a particular State but a Commonwealth Special District or Territory) are subject to a flat Income Tax of 1.75% on all passive income.

03.5%. Commonwealth military personnel, elected officials, civil service employees and miscellaneous bureaucrats, and all agents, operatives, and contractors of the Commonwealth government are subject to a flat Federal Income Tax of 3.5% on all monies earned.

01.75% to 50%. Foreign nationals pay a flat income tax rate of 1.75% and added percentage based on the how heavy the tariffs levied by that nation against the Commonwealth are, not to exceed 50%. (E.g., Orleans Confederation has Free and Open Trade with the Commonwealth and Citizens of same pay a flat 1.75%. The People's Democratic Socialists' Workers' Communes Chiapas forbid any direct trade or commerce, and Chiapans residing within the commonwealth.

85%. Illegal aliens regardless of national origin are subject to a 85% income tax on all monies earned while illegally residing in the Commonwealth.

Domestic Nationals (Denizens, and Sojourners) who are not Citizens are subject to Income Tax, but currently are not required to pay any. In the past Romuls were subject to

(Devolution Nations Only) Does the state impose an income tax? If so, then what is the average state income tax rate?
No. No member State of the Commonwealth may enact Income Taxes except during a State of Emergency not to exceed 90 days.

Federated Republic
Does your nation practice devolution?
Yes
If so, please describe the powers and responsibilities, in general, of the state compared to the federal government.
In general, the provincial and federal governments are designed to run in parallel. For example The state government is responsible for local management, such as repairs of things like a city's tram lines, while the federal government would regulate and repair the city port and train lines. So the port would be exclusively managed and staffed by the federal government while obeying city ordinances, while the tram lines would be designed to at least federal safety standards but built by the province.

PART ONE


Please answer the following questions as fully and clearly as you can.

Nation Name: Federal Republif of Estrago
Type of Government: Federal assembly-independent directorial republic under a semi-direct democracy
Does your nation practice devolution?
The term devolution is innacurate, as it suggests that state governments are granted powers by the federal government. This is not the case in Estrago. All powers lie within the individual states, and they grant selected and limited powers to the federal government. Furthermore Estrago is organised according to the principal of subsidiarity, i.e. each task should be assigned to the smallest possible jurisdiction (federal > state/cantonal > municipal).
If so, please describe the powers and responsibilities, in general, of the state compared to the federal government.
The federal government is responsible for criminal law, regional planning at the national level, planning of infrastructure of national importance (railways, motorways, airports to some extent), civil law, national security and the military, forreign affairs, legal framework of healthcare and health inssurance, protection of environment and herritage/culture in broader sense, communications (telecommunications, mail, internet), the national grid and energy strategy. All other fields are the exclusive domain of the state level. The federal level cannot overrule the states in matters where it has no powers exclusively granted to it by the constitution. The federal level also relies on the states to police and enforce its laws; it has no power to enforce any laws itself.
If not, please describe the way of governance that the federal government uses to control all of its territory.
