Changes were made to the Charter to revise Council positions, titles and the procedure to select the President.
The charter passed with a vote of 84% with 50% of the membership voting. The positions of Secretary of Development

Together we are strong.[/center][/color]

[color="#FF8C00"]Article I: [/color]Membership

Every member is bound by The Charter to protect, serve, and respect all member Nations of The Last Republic.
B. Members wishing to join must not be:
----- a. Listed as a target by any alliance.

[color="#FF8C00"]Article II:[/color] Values
A. Discipline
"Discipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable, procures success to the weak." – George Washington
Discipline is a state of order and obedience. It involves the ready subordination of the will of the individual for the good of the group. We need discipline in all that we do. Whether it is hitting a baseball, climbing a mountain, playing a musical instrument, making good grades or brushing your teeth it all comes down to a matter of discipline. Having discipline increases your chance of success, and therefore, The Last Republic's success.
B. Integrity
"To know what is right and not do it is the worst cowardice." - Confucius
Integrity resides in the ability to constitute yourself as your word, to be true to your principles, and ultimately, be true to yourself.
Integrity gives us to have the courage and that confidence to do what is right. Or rather do the right thing in the face of possible adversity.
C. Unity
"Whatever may be the issue we shall share one common danger, one safety." - Virgil
The definition of the word unity is being bonded together and residing peacefully. It also means acting as one. Unity of our brotherhood will increase our strength of purpose. We will move forward collectively and reach our goals together.
D. Respect
"Respect yourself and others will respect you." - Confucius
Respect means being treated with consideration and esteem and to be willing to treat people similarly. It means to have a regard for other peoples’ feelings, listening to people and hearing them, giving them one’s full attention. Even more importantly, respect means treating people the way you would like to be treated.

[color="#FF8C00"]Article III:[/color] Government
- Section I:
The Government of The Last Republic consists of a Council. The Council will consist of four seats; one seat per position. The Council positions are as follows:
A. Secretary of the Interior
----- Manages day to day internal affairs, daily fiscal responsibilities including all aid interactions, economic programs, and may assist with other Councilors duties in their absence.
B. Secretary of Development
----- Manages day to day operations to ensure growth of the Alliance through recruiting and training of new members and may assist with other Councilors duties in their absence.
C. Secretary of Foreign Affairs
----- Manages day to day foreign affairs (embassies, ambassadors), and may assist with other Councilors duties in their absence.
D. General of the Republican Guard
----- Manages day to day military affairs (offensive and defensive), and may assist with other Councilors duties in their absence.

- The Council can increase the number of seats on Council, but this action requires unanimous approval from all Council members. The Council must always have a minimum of four seats.
- Each Council Member has a single vote. In case if a Council Member is unable to take part in a vote due to temporary absence then the voting shall be postponed until the Council Member can take part. If the vote is too urgent - based on unanimous view of other Council members - for it to wait until the Council Member returns, then the other Council Members in cooperation with the deputy of the absent Council Member shall cast the vote on his/her behalf.
- The Council will elect one of its members - preferably the most senior one - for the post of the President of The Last Republic. The President represents the Alliance and heads the Council of The Last Republic as well as overseeing the general function of the alliance and is responsible for making sure individual departments are operational.

Each Council Member shall have a Deputy. These Deputies do not participate in Council's decisions but assist the respective Councilor in their duties and day to day operations within their departments. Deputy Councilors are appointed by Councilors. When a Councilor resigns, vacates, or is removed from his Office, the Deputy Councilor takes over the Department as the acting Councilor until a new Councilor's nomination is confirmed for that Office. After a new Councilor is confirmed, the new Councilor has the option to keep the previous Deputy Councilor. This is encouraged, but not required. The Deputy Council positions are as follows:
A. Deputy Secretary of the Interior
B. Deputy Secretary of Development
C. Deputy Secretary of Foreign Affairs
D. Colonel of the Republican Guard

- Section 3: Appointments and Elections
A. Any member of The Last Republic may be nominated in the Elections for a Councilor Office.
B. Each member of The Last Republic may vote in elections for contested Councilor Offices.
C. Candidate contesting for a Councilor position is elected with an absolute majority of the votes. In the event that the candidate does not receive the required votes to confirm nomination, a new nominee will be chosen. The Deputy of the Council position in question will assume the Councilor's duties until a new Councilor has been confirmed.
D. Elections shall only be carried out if a Councilor is removed from office or resigns. Once elected, a Councilor may serve for life until removed or resigns from office.

- Section 4: Vote of No Confidence
1/4 of those entitled to vote in the elections may at any time propose a “Vote of No Confidence” to the Council. The Council starts the vote no more than 72 hours after having received the request. The vote is successful if at least 3/5 of the membership of The Last Republic votes in favor. If the Councilor in question receives the 3/5 votes of the alliance he will then be impeached from his Council position.

- Section 5: Term of Office
A. Councilors are elected to life terms. Elections are only held in the event of the Councilor vacating, resigning, or being removed from their office.
B. At any time a Councilor can be impeached with a “Vote of No Confidence”.

[color="#FF8C00"]Article IV:[/color] Legislation
A. Any member of The Last Republic may propose a new law to the Council.
B. Council is bound to address the proposal and vote on it.
C. An absolute majority of the Council is required to confirm a proposal.

[color="#FF8C00"]Article V:[/color] War
- Section 1: Declaration of War
A. The President of The Last Republic declares war on other alliances on behalf of the Council of The Last Republic after such a decision receives a unanimous support by the Council.
B. During a state of war, no members are to be admitted without an approval from the Council nor shall any be allowed to resign. In addition, those refusing to follow orders to defend their fellow nations shall be declared enemies of the alliance.

- Section 2: Rules of War
A. No nation of The Last Republic may declare war on another nation unless The Last Republic as a whole is at war with that nation or that nation's alliance.
B. No nation of this alliance may utilize nuclear weapons unless directed to do so by the Council.
C. No nation of this alliance may surrender or send a peace offer unless directed to do so by the Council.
Article VI:[/color] Amending the Charter
A. Amendments may be proposed by the Council.
B. An amendment is submitted to the Alliance members for approval after receiving an absolute majority support in the Council of The Last Republic.
C. This Charter may be amended by a 4/5 majority vote of the Alliance members. For a vote to be valid at least 30% of members shall cast their vote. If less than 30% vote then a re-vote shall take place. Voting on the Charter shall be open for no less than 48 hours, unless if before the end of the 48 hours period all members of The Last Republic have cast their votes.

To be fair, tLR makes more sense, looks better, and is probably better than TLR in every single way.

You can think that of course but you would be wrong in every single way
