Prelude

As time has progressed humanity has itself become detached from things once thought certain. Absolutism the moral ideology of the past which dictated a set of norms that were inherently, and eternally true has given way to relativism. A system which dynamically adjusts itself, and dictates a set of norms based upon the coercive ability of certain notions of “form” to themselves be imposed upon others. Therefore it comes as no surprise that power no longer is decided by authority but rather authority is decided by power, there can be no illegitimate power without another power declaring itself legitimate and a committing the converse upon the other. Thus the only legitimate government is that which is capable of imposing itself upon its subjects. The true state is that which has the power to decide upon the norm. As such we being in the capacity to do so have chosen to establish unto this land a new form of government, one which holds dear to it the political and economic interests of those whom it reigns, the safety of the public, and condition of its own existence. It shall therefore with these interests in mind execute the following articles, and establish itself as the imperial regime of the land. This established all else follows…

Article I: Oligarchy

Section 1: Oligarchal Sovereignty

Clause 1: The nation and its state shall be marshaled under the command of a single oligarchy. This entity comprising of six members, shall be the sovereign source of all legitimate authority established under these articles, and enforced under the capacity of coercive force this committee shall hold.

Clause 2: Being that the Oligarchy is a collective of Oligarchs the sovereign authority of this body shall only be tapped when the majority of its members are in agreement. While it is always possible for this entity to distribute power to lesser offices, it will still irrespective of its own policies remain in the capacity to revoke, and regain all power vested within it, as well as overrule, and decide upon any matter it chooses. Thus the power to rule shall perpetually be in the hands of man not law, for law is simply a tool of authority holding no ability to decide or reign on its own. Concurrently it is as an act of this entity that the following form of government is to be established.

Section 2: Oligarchal Powers

Clause 1: As a collective the Oligarchy shall have the authority to create ordinances, which shall make up Orderial Law the highest level of law within the land. All lower law known simply as Administrative Law shall be rendered null and void at any point of contradiction. An ordinance may both regulate behavior creating laws which negate certain behavior, as well as mandate behavior creating laws which prescribe and demand specific action on the part of those subjected to it.

Clause 2: The Oligarchy as a collective shall function as the supreme judicial authority of the state, and as an entity shall hold general jurisdiction over all peoples subjected to it. Thus it shall have the authority to pass judgment over all whom it controls as to whether they are in violation of any Orderial or Administrative Law. Said judgment may be initiated by the committee itself, or by someone granted the authority to do so. Lesser officials may be granted similar authority the limits of which may be clarified by the collective.

Clause 3: The Oligarchy being the retainer of power, and thus the source of authority under the state shall have the ability to establish and develop bureaucracy. The purpose of which is the fulfillment of mandates which it establishes. Likewise it may also destroy, limit, redefine, re-staff, micromanage, and effect change in anyway it sees fit upon said bureaucracy.

Clause 4: The Committee may amend this document in any way it sees fit as it is merely an act of the Committee.

Section 3: Collective Appointment

Clause 1: The Oligarchy shall choose its own members, these new additions shall be appointed through the process of Collective Appointment. Said process is essentially fiat by majority approval. The formal ceremony, process, and details of the action may also be determined by the Oligarchy.

Clause 2: Only by the collective will of the Oligarchy can an individual be appointed to it.

Clause 3: Just as a majority of the Oligarchy can make an individual an Oligarch, so to can it strip an existing Oligarch of their authority.

Section 4: Oligarch Privileges

Clause 1: Each Oligarch is allotted command of a province, and the authority to carry out their will within said province. All assets belonging to this provincial authority which is defined by each oligarch, and sanctioned by the Oligarchy, belong to the office not the occupant of said office. Thus each oligarch has the privilege to their office’s holdings.

Clause 2: Oligarch’s when functioning as such are subject to no law other than that which the collective will of the Oligarchy determines.

Clause 3: Any four Oligarch’s may call for a meeting of the Oligarchy. As a majority they may make decisions and exercise its sovereign authority over the entire state.

Article II: The Executive

Section 1: Description

Clause 1: The Oligarchy while collectively the sovereign authority shall in the interest of prudence divide up its general subject jurisdiction and allot said jurisdiction to minor authorities. (These minor authorities shall be the six Oligarchs who’s privileges are granted to them directly by the Oligarchy. These privileges shall persevere all lesser law.) In doing so it will create five ministries each led by one of the collectively appointed oligarchs. This shall establish the bureaucracy of the state. These five ministries will be as follows. The Ministry of Defense, The Ministry of Finance, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Ministry of the Interior, The Ministry Internal Security.

Clause 2: The sixth Oligarch shall be made the Imperial Regent, who shall reign and hold authority in the place of the collective. The Ministers (the other Oligarchs), shall be made to answer to him, unless acting as members of the Oligarchy.

Clause 3: The group of Oligarchs when under this structure shall exist and be known as The Directorate Committee. It is only when at least four of the six Oligarch’s have called a meeting that the entity would then be referred to as The Oligarchy. It is the only time that they are equal with the Imperial Regent and as a group have the ability to supersede his will.

Section 2: Powers of the Imperial Regent

Clause 1: All of the powers below are the Regent’s to exercise in so far as he has not been superseded by two thirds of the Oligarchy.

Clause 2: The Imperial Regent shall have the power to effect his will in the form of writs. A writ like an ordinance may both mandate behavior, and restrict it. Writs shall be what comprises Administrative Law. An Imperial Writ holds the highest authority, ensuring that only a two thirds majority of the oligarchy may override it.

Clause 3: An un-contested Regent functions as the head of state, head of government, and commander in chief of the military, giving him full jurisdiction over all functions of the government, and peoples subjected to it.

Clause 4: It is the responsibility of the Regent to define the duties of the committee members. (Eg. While the Oligarchy selects the Regent, it shall in normal operation allow the regent to choose who fills the positions of the Ministry, and what the ministry itself does; the Oligarchy by not contesting it shall offer its approval.)

Clause 5: The Regent may remove any Non-Committee/Oligarchy employee of the state, as well as appoint any one an employee of the state.

Clause 6: While the Oligarch’s are entitled to the holdings of their offices, their authority to reign does not stem from the Oligarchy but rather from the committee, and more specifically the Regent. Therefore the Imperial Regent shall have the authority to intervene in the functioning of any province.

Section 3: Power’s of the Ministers (Committee Members)

Clause 1: Each Committee Member may issue writs within their own jurisdiction in so far as those writs are not countermanded by the Regent’s.

Clause 2: Each Committee Member has total authority to manage their Ministry without intervention from other members of the Committee with exception to the Regent.

Clause 3: Each Committee Member is responsible for the staffing of their ministry, and may subsequently remove anyone within their jurisdiction on a whim.

Clause 4: Each Committee Member may grant authority within their jurisdiction to anyone they judge competent to do so.

Section 4: Executive Ministries

Clause 1: The policies of the State shall be carried out by five ministries each represented by its minister on the committee. Each Ministry is bound to the will of the Regent, and should, though they are not bound to do so, act upon reasonable requests made by Provincial Administrators. It is the duty of the Imperial Regent to more clearly define the jurisdiction of each ministry and may at any time intervene in their operations or issue orders to them, however as a general Guide to clarification the Oligarchy here establishes the vague ground of each ministry.

Clause 2: The Ministry of Defense shall be responsible for the raising, training, equipping, and overall management of the nation’s military forces, defensive structures, military relevant assets and both long-term and short-term strategic military aims. It is also responsible for gathering external intelligence on foreign entities.

Clause 3: The Ministry of Internal Security shall be responsible for the raising, training, and equipping, and overall management of a national police force which shall be used to enforce the law, protect the state, keep public order, and maintain internal security. It is further responsible for the gathering of intelligence on domestic subjects, and the management of assets controlled by it.

Clause 4: The Ministry for Foreign Affairs shall responsible for managing the nation’s diplomatic relations with foreign nations, and shall be the public representative of the nation to the world. Furthermore it shall be responsible for advising the Regent in decisions pertaining to Foreign Relations. Finally it shall be responsible for managing all assets held in foreign nations that pertain to its own affairs.

Clause 5: The Ministry of Finance shall be responsible for the management of the nation’s economy. It may engage in the creation of monetary policy, establish a national bank, establish market regulations, establish market mandates, create tariffs, establish tax code, manage the state’s funds, manage the nation’s resources, seize assets held by private individuals, and effect its will in matters pertaining to the economic state of the nation.

Clause 6: The Ministry of the Interior shall be responsible for the management of the nation’s national infrastructure, the management of public lands, and the management of all public programs which do not fall under the jurisdiction of the other ministries. All areas of jurisdiction not allotted to the other ministries shall be presided over by this ministry.

Article III: Provincial Administration

Section 1: Description

Clause 1: The sum total of the territories under the control of the Oligarchy shall be divided and allotted to each Oligarch (eg each oligarch shall receive about one sixth of the nation’s territory). Thus there shall be six provinces. Each Oligarch is from there responsible for administering the laws established by the Regent/Oligarchy and may further establish laws which are necessary and proper for the operation of their province.

Clause 2: In reference to an individual Oligarch in terms of their province the term “Provincial Administrator” shall be used.

Section 2: Powers of the Provincial Administrator

Clause 1: The Administrator may vest his authority into any entity or individual he deems to be competent to reign as his proxy.

Clause 2: The Administrator may establish Administrative law which is enforced within their province by the national police force.

Clause 3: The Administrator may call upon the resources of national ministries to aid in the administration of the Province. (Note: Each province is not to create its own ministries but shall make use of the nation’s existing resources).

Clause 4: The Administrator may make use of whatever resources are available to him to aid in the development of his province, the public good, and the management of the provincial authority.

Ordinance #2: Imperium Reform Addendum

Prelude:

Article I: The Executive

Prelude:

In the interest of pursuing more socially progressive political policies the Oligarchy has opted to modify the existing order, established in Article II of Ordinance #1. Said Article until a reversal shall be considered null and no longer in effect. Moreover its former function shall be substituted with the following article below.

Article I: The Executive

Section 1: Description

Clause 1: The Oligarchy while collectively the sovereign authority shall in the interest of prudence divide up its general subject jurisdiction and allot said jurisdiction to minor authorities. (These minor authorities shall be the six Oligarchs who’s privileges are granted to them directly by the Oligarchy. These privileges shall persevere all lesser law.) In doing so it will create five ministries each led by one of the collectively appointed oligarchs. This shall establish the bureaucracy of the state. These five ministries will be as follows. The Ministry of Defense, The Ministry of Finance, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Ministry of the Interior, The Ministry Internal Security.

Clause 2: Leading this group making up a collective executive there shall be a Triumvirate, the sixth Oligarch shall be an appointed member of this entity representing the interests of the Oligarchy; the remaining two seats shall be filled based on the decisions of the franchised voting majority. Individuals occupying the elected seats may serve for a single term of ten years, and one seat shall be up for election every five years. Any franchised individual is eligible to declare candidacy in these Elections. This entity shall reign and hold authority in the place of the collective. The Ministers (the other Oligarchs), shall be made to answer to them, unless acting as members of the Oligarchy.

Clause 3: The group of Oligarchs when under this structure shall exist and be known as The Directorate Committee. It is only when at least four of the six Oligarch’s have called a meeting that the entity would then be referred to as The Oligarchy. It is the only time that they are equal with the Triumvirate and as a group have the ability to supersede its will.

Clause 1: All of the powers below are the Triumvirate’s to exercise in so far as it has not been superseded by a majority plus one of the Oligarchy.

Writs shall be what comprises Administrative Law. An Imperial Writ holds the highest authority, ensuring that only a two thirds majority of the oligarchy may override it.

Clause 3: An un-contested Triumvirate functions as the head of state, head of government, and commander in chief of the military, giving it full jurisdiction over all functions of the government, and peoples subjected to it.

Clause 4: It is the responsibility of the Triumvirate to define the duties of the committee members. (Eg. While the Oligarchy selects the Regent, it shall in normal operation allow the regent to choose who fills the positions of the Ministry, and what the ministry itself does; the Oligarchy by not contesting it shall offer its approval.)

Clause 5: The Triumvirate may remove any Non-Committee/Oligarchy employee of the state, as well as appoint any one an employee of the state.

Clause 6: While the Oligarch’s are entitled to the holdings of their offices, their authority to reign does not stem from the Oligarchy but rather from the committee, and more specifically the Triumvirate. Therefore the Triumvirate shall have the authority to intervene in the functioning of any province.

Section 3: Power’s of the Ministers (Committee Members)

Clause 1: Each Committee Member may issue writs within their own jurisdiction in so far as those writs are not countermanded by the Regent’s.

It is also responsible for gathering external intelligence on foreign entities.

Clause 5: The Ministry of Finance shall be responsible for the management of the nation’s economy. It may engage in the creation of monetary policy, establish a national bank, establish market regulations, establish market mandates, create tariffs, establish tax code, manage the state’s funds, manage the nation’s resources, seize assets held by private individuals, and effect its will in matters pertaining to the economic state of the nation.

Ordinance #3: Enfranchisement & Elections Addendum

Article I: Subject

Article II: Election Commission

Article I: Subject

Section 1: Establishment

Clause 1: Flawed notions of voting in the past have determined such a power to be a right; this is not in fact true, voting is not a right but rather a power either claimed up or granted by another sovereign entity. No vote operates in a vacuumed and as such to vote is to effect those around you. Therefore to be a voter is not to exercise something inherent to your station as a subject but rather to operate as a piece of the greater Government. As we would expect individuals wielding authority to be competent in their exercise of power so to must it be expected that a voter is to be competent in their exercise of the franchise.

Clause 2: Thus the right to vote shall not be inherently universal, or perhaps even wide spread but rather issued based on whether or not the voter who is given said vote is qualified to hold such a power. Such qualification shall be determined based a number of criteria specifically intelligence in terms of reasoning skills, awareness of domestic and international issues and theory regarding it, political science, economic theory, historical understanding, education level, and other general knowledge. This limitation will ensure that legitimate votes by informed competent individuals are themselves not diluted by a greater pool of ignorance influenced by tools of manipulation. Moreover it will be required that only those contributing to the system through the income tax structure will be enfranchised as their property is what makes up the over all revenue used by the Government and as such they ought to have some say as to how it is allocated. Individuals not contributing to this pool have staked nothing and thus are not at risk to have their property misallocated. All Subjects of the Imperium may apply to be enfranchised.

Clause 3: Only an Active Oligarchy may choose to defer to the populace by referendum, and the only set matter that will be decided through a democratic process will be the office holders of the two rotating seats of the Triumvirate.

Article II: Election Commission

Section 1: Establishment

Clause 1: An Election and Enfranchisement Commission shall be established under the purview of the Interior Ministry. It shall be the duty of this commission to receive applications and grant or deny said applications based on an objective investigation of competence; as well as plan, manage, and oversee Triumvirate elections, and non-planned referendums.

Clause 2: This Commission will be supervised by the Interior Ministry and it staff shall be chosen by that Minister. The Minister may remove any member of this staff at any time for any reason.

Section 2: Commission Powers

Clause 1: The Commission shall have the power to set standards of examination, testing, investigation and so forth to determine competency based on the criteria provided in article I.

Clause 2: The Commission shall have the power to approve or deny applications for enfranchisement.

Clause 3: The Commission shall have the power to plan, and execute Triumvirate Elections, and Unplanned referendums.

Clause 4: The Commission shall be responsible for tracking, vetting, and approving applications for Triumvirate candidacy. While they may deny applications said power should not be exercised out of political interest but rather concerns for the safety of the public, integrity of the law, and stability of the state.

Clause 5: Votes do not have to be equally weighted the commission may determine the weight of an individuals vote based on a set standard of determination that they shall be responsible for setting.
