Newbie (1/14)

  1. Over the last few months United Sovereign Nations government and members have been re-evaluating our Charter and government structure. Following a good deal of lively discussion and debate we have decided that it is time to put the old ways to bed and to move forward with a new structure and Charter. So with a little fanfare we present to you our new Charter and government structure. I'm very sure some of you will be unsurprised by the changes. It was inevitable really. All friends and diplomats are warmly invited to join us to celebrate this momentous occasion on our forum board www.cnusn.net for cake/pie, beer and pretzels. The Charter of the United Sovereign Nations We, the members of the United Sovereign Nations, do hereby draft this Charter to provide a constant and secure alliance on the Maroon Sphere for the membership of our nations, quality and freely elected leadership, and a strong and growing member base. Section 1: The General Assembly Art. 1.1. The General Assembly of USN consists of the totality of our approved members. Art. 1.2. As a democratic alliance of sovereign nations, we acknowledge the General Assembly as the ultimate statutory forum that delegates our representation and leadership to members who can best embody our values and pursue our vital interests. Art. 1.3. The GA of USN concedes to delegate the alliance's representation and leadership powers to an unelected alliance Owner and a freely elected Government. Art. 1.4. Each member of the United Sovereign Nations is granted freedom of speech and expression on the alliance boards, in accordance with the Forum Registration Agreement. Art. 1.5. Any GA member has the right to vote in the GA and run for Government office, as well as put forward plans and ideas to the Government for further discussion. Art. 1.6. In return for their membership, USN members are expected to regularly check the forums and keep themselves up to date on any important information, as well as be willing to follow any and all instructions from Government officials that do not contravene this Charter or other USN legal decision. Section 2: The Voting System Art. 2.1. The voting system in the GA of USN consists of regular pools and referendums. Art. 2.2. Regular pools shall last for 3 days and shall be deemed as valid regardless the rate of participation of the GA members. Art. 2.3. Referendums shall last for 5 days and shall be deemed as valid in case of a minimum 50% rate of participation of the GA members. Art. 2.4. A referendum shall be required for any issues related to the Charter, or the alliance's owner and heir. Section 3: The Queen Art. 3.1. The Queen of USN embodies the alliance's symbolic representation function, and shall be regarded as the guarantor of the Charter and the authorized voice of USN across the CN world and in relation with the CN administrators. Art. 3.2. The Queen is not elected, but can resign by free will, or can be impeached by a majority of 4/6 of the Government members, including the Prime Minister, followed by a referendum. Art. 3.3. As this Charter is being drafted, the Queen is Fluffyewunga (Cora). She has the privilege of being our Alliance Owner in the game, as a symbol of our alliance's uninterrupted continuity, for as long as she shall remain in our service. Section 4: The Queen's/Owner's Attributions Art. 4.1. The alliance Owner has forum administration rights, and closely cooperates with the USN forums administrator(s) to ensure compliance with the Registration Agreement by all users. Art. 4.2. In order to facilitate the smooth running of daily business in USN, the Owner shall grant forum administration or moderation powers, as well as in-game powers, privileges and titles, to key members of USN, including (but not limited to) the Government officials. Art. 4.3. The Queen is not entitled to run for a Government position in the general elections. The Owner/Queen has the right to: Art. 4.4. Nominate the alliance's Heir, subject to a validation by a referendum. Art. 4.5. Delegate her in-game powers (except ownership) to the Heir for limited periods of time, or entirely pass the alliance ownership in case of resignation or impeachment. Art. 4.6. Call for a vote of no confidence by the GA for a Minister (including the Prime Minister). The Minister thereof shall be considered dismissed by a Government decision (Art. 6.2.), followed by a regular pool in the General Assembly. In case of a dismissal, the former minister cannot run for the same Ministry (or for the PM position) in the next general elections runoff. Art. 4.7. Appoint a replacement for, or take over the duties of, a Minister, on a temporary basis, in case of an unannounced vacancy of more than 20 days, effective until new elections for that position can be held. Art. 4.8. Call for general elections for a new Government, 10 days before the expiration of the current Government term. Art. 4.9.

Section 5: General Elections Art. 5.1. Every GA member has the right to run for the Government during the general elections, by nominating himself for a specific Ministry. Art. 5.2.

A nominee is elected as the PM if he gets the highest number of GA votes in the PM polls. In case of a tie, the polls shall be repeated. Art. 5.7. A newly elected Government shall hold a term of 3 months, starting with the 1st day of the next month after the general elections. The term can be prolonged by one month in case it is expiring during an alliance-wide war. Section 6: Executive Powers of the Government Art. 6.1.

  2. [quote name='Vladimir Stukov II' timestamp='1337912912' post='2971856'] Six years later and you have accomplished nothing except being a punching bag. You had so much potential! [/quote] Have you had your eyes closed for 6 years? Congrats on 6 years my dear dear friends. to the Penguins
  3. [quote name='Brehon' timestamp='1334391015' post='2952988'] How come you so brilliant people touting your agenda so quickly forget the good that was involved. The peace, growth and etc Invicta enjoyed prior to Karma. Oh wait because it doesn't fit YOUR agenda to comment on that. Be a man (or woman) and say it all vs being snits. [/quote] Yes because the lost of allies and members due to a sphere change was completely beneficial to them. NPO have done nothing but harm Invicta and when it might just be time to repay their unwavering loyalty you kick them in the teeth. Who's next TPF?
  4. It's a sad day when 2 friends of yours break up. I hope that in the future this relationship can be return to something like it's forumer self.
  5. [quote name='johnathan buck' timestamp='1328894850' post='2917889'] BFF; Really cut it, you guys are making your bloc look like a bunch of pathetic idiotic children so why not stop it while you have the chance and just move on. [/quote] Let's be fair here it's Europa and an ex Fear guy making BFF's look worse then normal. "checks if Lord Boris has made an more lame call out threads"
  6. [quote name='Canik' timestamp='1328856872' post='2917754'] They are choosing to be your satellites. I think they are doubling-down on your relationship, hopefully they get some returns for their investment this time. It's not a bet I would take, but when you're desperate.. [/quote] Shows your lack of knowledge as usual. [quote] Sorry, where was I? Ah, right. Yes, no matter what you do, no matter what you say. Somebody, somewhere will criticize and hate you. Never FEAR though, if you make good choices and keep at it, your reputation will improve and CN will reward you. Until then, suck it up and deal with it. [/quote] The choice that would be considered good enough for the people handing out rewards is not 1's in good conciseness i would make but is not like friendship means much to you. Or the truth for that matter
  7. [quote name='Ernesto Che Guevara' timestamp='1328829699' post='2917481'] I did ask him why he left, and he said it's because Cora is destroying the once-proud USN by refusing to let it die. Any other questions? [/quote] How is that power hungry? Busting a gut and being pig headed i can understand from what u've put. Not power hungry.
  8. [quote name='Kongo Jack' timestamp='1328829247' post='2917479'] Cora had this issue with trying to overrun CDT, it was a pretty big deal. You seem new, or maybe I'm just that old, either way yeah she has had quite a few problems with power control. [/quote] Funny i remeber bullying casue we wouldn't pretend a treaty was something it wasn't. I remeber my ideas rubbished then parraded 6 months later as some1 elses. I remeber standing up for an allaince that didn't want to disband against people who think they owed sole rights to it. Twice. But thats old history which i try and let go of untill 1 of u bright spark keep brining it up.
  9. [quote name='Ernesto Che Guevara' timestamp='1328828090' post='2917463'] Same, because BBF doesn't exist. [/quote] Thats kinda of the irony. My english writing isn't great yet it seems u need me to point out to you where you have made the mistake in your thinking ragarding that term
  10. [quote name='Ernesto Che Guevara' timestamp='1328827887' post='2917458'] [/color] [color=#1C2837] [/color] [color="#1c2837"]Please point me to your apology to BFF. You apologized to FEAR. The years of therapy my members will doubtlessly need to go through to get past this scarring moment of personal defeat (We lost to UPN, remember?) is something you cannot simply wish away with words. [/color] [/quote] No where do i see a requirment to apologise [b]to[/b] BFF only [b]about[/b] their involvement. [quote]Robster83 shall issue an apology for his actions that [b]led to the involvement[/b] of Blood For Friends on the UPN front of the conflict.[/quote] I have highlighted the section which u are confused about for future referance
