ConstRItution of the Random Insanity Alliance

Preamble

The Random Insanity Alliance affirms its belief in the ideals of whatever it chooses to believe. In order to safeguard these ideals, its members, and the RIA way of life, the alliance hereby adopts the following Constitution and places its support behind the governing body outlined therein.

Article I

Section 1

The Random Insanity Alliance is, first and foremost, an alliance of Maroon nations. It is highly encouraged that all nations seeking haven within the alliance belong to the Maroon sphere.

Sub-section i

Hopeful members may not be rejected solely on the basis of color.

Sub-section ii

Members of the alliance may not be ejected from the alliance solely on the basis of color.

Section 2

No nation wishing to be a member of the alliance may be member of another alliance. Membership status within another alliance is grounds for immediate rejection of a membership application

Sub-section i

Any nation found to be seeking acceptance into the alliance with the intent of collecting intelligence for another alliance will be subject to immediate punishment as per Article V, Section 2, Sub-Section ii.

Section 3

The alliance represents a unique community that is both higher than its existence as a group of nations and separate from whence it came. As such, measures must be in place to protect this community from death. To further this end, nothing in this Section may be amended at a future time, and this Section must be included in its entirety on any future governmental plans used by the alliance.

Sub-Section i

The alliance may not disband for any reason without first calling a membership vote of indefinite length and receiving a vote in favor from at least eighty percent of the alliance membership.

Sub-Section ii

The alliance may not allow itself to be assimilated into another alliance for any reason without first calling a membership vote of indefinite length and receiving a vote in favor from at least eighty percent of the alliance membership.

Sub-Section iii

The alliance will always remain primarily an entity built from nations residing within the Maroon sphere. The Maroon majority must be maintained by any means which do not conflict with the rest of this document.

Article II

Section 1

The government of the alliance is a hierarchical body made up of three bodies of service: The Triumvirate, the Cabinet, and the Secretariat.

Section 2

The first governmental body of the alliance is the Triumvirate. Each of the three Triumvirs serves for a period of six months. The Triumvirs act to maintain alliance continuity and serve as a balancing force for the Cabinet, as well as establishing and maintaining long term projects for the benefit of the alliance.

Sub-section i

In order to hold the office of Triumvir, a candidate must meet the following requirements. The candidate must be a member of the alliance. The nation of the candidate must be Maroon. The candidate must have been a member of the alliance for a total of at least four months, including the two consecutive months preceding the election period. A candidate may run with only one consecutive month or two total months if said candidate receives a special dispensation allowing it signed by the entirety of the Cabinet.

Sub-section ii

One Triumvir election will be held every two months. During these periods, one seat will be up for election. The election process of a Triumvir follows the system outlined in Article II, Section 3, Sub-section iii, excluding the frequency of which the election period occurs. If, at any point, there exist fewer than three Triumvirs in office, an election will immediately be held to fill the vacant position(s). A forty-eight hour nomination period will be held after which time elections will run for another forty-eight hours. Members will be allowed to vote for as many candidates as there are open positions.

Sub-section iii

In non-specific decisions, a Triumvir has seniority over a member of the Cabinet and has the authority to overrule any decisions made. In regard to area specific decision making, a Cabinet member has seniority over a Triumvir in decisions pertaining to the area over which the Cabinet member has authority. A single Triumvir may delay the enactment of a decision by a Cabinet member in such a case for a period of up to twenty-four hours. Two Triumvirs may overrule a Cabinet member in area specific decisions. If another Triumvir becomes available during the twenty-four hour suspension, they must immediately review the case. They may either then dismiss the Cabinet decision or end the suspension. If the Cabinet feels that the Triumvirate is acting incorrectly in a decision, a unanimous Cabinet may overrule said decision.

Section 3

The main governing body of the alliance is the Cabinet. The Cabinet is made up of the Heads of the Four Main Departments of the alliance: Diplomacy, Economics, Defense, and Recruitment. The term of each Cabinet member lasts one month beginning on the 1st of the month. All Cabinet members have seniority in their specified area. Only a joint decision by at least two Triumvirs can overrule a decision made by a Cabinet member in said area. An agreement by the entire Cabinet may overturn such a ruling, even when all three Triumvirs are in consensus.

Sub-section i

In order to run for a Cabinet position, a candidate must be a member of the alliance and have held membership status for a total of at least one month. The nation of the candidate must be Maroon.

Sub-section ii

Cabinet elections will be held at the end of every month. A three day nomination period will take place from the 21st through the 23rd followed by three days elections from the 24th through the 26th. In the event of a tie, a follow up elections can take place on the 27th and 28th between the contested candidates.

Section iii

The Head of Foreign Affairs leads the diplomatic corps of the alliance. This office is entrusted with the task of maintaining a favorable relationship with as many foreign powers as possible and ensuring the continued safety of the alliance through the procurement of allies and the cessation of hostilities, both military and peaceful, with belligerent entities.

Sub-Section ii

Non-staff positions in the Secretariat are appointed by the Triumvirate. The Cabinet may call a vote for removal of these appointees from office at any time. Removal requires a majority vote in favor from the Cabinet.

Sub-Section iii

The Secretary of Internal Affairs is responsible for keeping the general membership informed of the workings of the alliance and relaying the messages of the rest of the Cabinet. The Secretary of Internal Affairs may appoint one Triumvir-approved Deputy for every two hundred members of the alliance.

Sub-Section iv

The Secretary of Ghostbusting is responsible for maintaining a comprehensive roster of membership as well as checking the represented affiliation of each declared member to make sure that all members on the roster are correctly representing themselves and that all nations representing themselves as a member are on the roster. Similarly, the Secretary of Ghostbusting must ensure that all those with continued access to the alliance forum are members. One Triumvir-approved Deputy may be appointed for every 200 members.

Article III

Section 1

This should only be used in cases where an immediate risk to the alliance should the person remain in office has demonstrated itself.

Section 2

All amendments must follow a set procedure of proposal, editing, and addition in order to maintain the integrity of this document.

Article VII

Section 1

Diplomacy is and always should be the first, second, and third lines of conflict resolution between two alliances. Almost inevitably, however, there comes a time when a fourth line must be used. Once Florida has been exhausted, the fifth line of conflict resolution must be employed, for diplomacy is worth little if the will to defend oneself and oneÂ’s allies is not present.

Such a declaration shall require a unanimous Cabinet-Triumvirate vote as well as four fifths majority popular vote lasting for a period of forty-eight hours.

Sub-Section ii

An optional treatied declaration of war shall be called for when an ally with whom the alliance has a non-binding military treaty requests assistance.

Sub-Section iii

A binding treatied declaration of war shall be given in the event that an ally with whom the alliance has a binding military treaty requests assistance. Such a declaration shall require a five sevenths Triumvirate-Cabinet vote as it will simply be a recognition of a state which must already exist because of the nature of the treaty.
