A Declaration of Existence from The Republic of Aquisgrana


Recommended Posts


Greetings to Planet Bob!

Nueva Vida presents:

From the realms of darkest Germany comes… the Republic of Aquisgrana. Our goals are simple:

Build some bigass nations that will undoubtedly stomp yours.

Establish a military where knights ride on tanks, backed up by nuclear trebuchets, and dragons that drop 100 kiloton bombs.

Create a community of chivalrous knights and merry men that work hard, but play even harder. Our club scene is bumping.

Our forums are at: Aquisgrana

Check out our charter, I’m sure you’ll love it:


Promulgated this 25th day of June 2009.

The People of the Republic of Aquisgrana, imbued with the desire to safeguard liberty and rights, to shape collective and economic life in accordance with the principles of social justice, to serve progress, and to promote a secure peace and amity with all peoples, have adopted this Constitution.

Fundamentals of State Authority

State authority must serve the welfare of the people, liberty, peace and progress. Those active in public service are servants of the community as a whole.

The State Authority shall be organized along the following lines:

Concilium Ministrorum (Council of Ministers)

The supreme ruling body of the Republic of Aquisgrana is the Concilium Ministrorum, which will consist of all currently sitting Ministers and will be presided over by a Magistratus. In all matters, all members of the Concilium Ministrorum will have an equal vote.

The Magistratus will be the titular leader of the Republic, but the official acts of the Magistratus must be approved by the Consilium Ministrorum, with whom he votes on all matters coming on for their approval.

The Ministers will be chosen by the Magistratus, and presented to the People for their approval.

Concilium Civitatis (Council of State)

The Concilium Civitatis will consist of three trusted citizens, appointed by the Concilium Ministrorum, subject to the approval of the People as expressed in the Conclavis Populi, and serving with them, and is responsible for responding to the wishes of the general citizenry as expressed by their petitions and referenda.

Conclavis Populi (The People’s Chamber)

The Conclavis Populi will consist of every citizen of the Republic, and allows them to voice their concerns, to set forth ideas for the progress of the Republic and is where referenda will be posted for the citizens approval.


Minister Domesticus (Minister of the Interior)

The Minister of the Interior is responsible for maintenance of the technological infrastructure of the Republic, particularly the forums and IRC chatrooms, as well as for maintaining a peaceful environment for all citizens.

Minister Frugalitas (Minster of Economics)

The duties of the Minister of Economics:

By means of economic planning, the Republic ensures to each citizen necessary sustenance to provide against the economic consequences of the vicissitudes of life. It is incumbent upon the economy to benefit the whole people to ensure that everybody will obtain, in accordance with his performance, a just share in the yield of production.

Freedom of enterprise in the form of privately-organized tech deals is guaranteed to the individual within the scope of the above tasks and aims.

In order to secure a basic standard of living for all citizens and to promote their prosperity, the State will establish a public economic plan. It is the task of the government to supervise the implementation of the plan.

Minister Legati (Minister of Foreign Affairs)

It is the duty of State authority to maintain and cultivate amicable relations with all peoples.

The Minster of Foreign Affairs of the Republic represents the Republic in international relations.

He or she concludes and signs treaties with foreign countries on behalf of the Republic. All treaties or recision of the same must be approved by a majority vote of the Concilium Ministrorum and the Concilium Civitatis.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs accredits and receives foreign ambassadors and ministers.

Minister Defensionis (Minister of National Defense)

It is the duty of the State to ensure security for all citizens. The Minister of National Defense is charged with maintaining military forces in readiness at all times to ensure the Republic’s continued smooth functioning in the event of attacks on the Republic of any citizen.

Though no citizen may participate in belligerent actions designed to oppress any people, all citizens are obligated to rise to the defense of the Republic and its allies. Refusal to participate in any such defensive action will be grounds for expulsion from the Republic.

No alliance-wide war may be declared without a majority vote of the Concilium Ministrorum, the Concilium Civitatis, and the Conclavis Populi.

Tech raiding is strictly prohibited and considered a crime against peace and the security of the Republic.

Minister Justitiae (Minister of Justice)

All citizens have equal rights before the law. No citizen should be deprived of his right to be tried before a judge. All court proceedings are open to the public. In all matters involving a threat to public safety and order, however, the court may order the public to be excluded.

The Minister of Justice is responsible for ensuring just administration of all laws of the Republic.

Minister Immigrationis (Minister of Immigration)

The Minister of Immigration is charged with recruitment the education of all new citizens.


Any nation wishing to join the Republic of Aquisgrana may do so by posting in the appropriate thread on the forums according to the form therein set forth.

Rights and Duties of Citizens

All citizens have equal rights before the law.

Incitement against the lawfully constituted institutions of the republic, warmongering, engaging in rogue attacks or espionage during peace time, the manifestation of religious and racial hatred and of hatred against other peoples, as well as any other discriminatory acts are crimes. The exercise of rights within the meaning of the Constitution is not to be considered a crime.

Whoever has been convicted of such a crime is disqualified from holding public office and will be subject to such disciplinary actions as determined by the authorities.

Every citizen has the right and the duty to take part in the political life of the Republic. This right takes the form of:

Voting in referenda;

Entering upon public offices;

Submitting petitions to the Concilium Civitatis.

Every citizen is in duty bound to act in accordance with this Constitution and to defend it against its enemies.

The generally recognized rules of international law are binding upon State authority and every citizen.

Every citizen has the right to emigrate according to established procedure.

All citizens have the right to express their opinion freely. No one may be discriminated against for exercising this right. There is no press censorship.

General Provisions

The Republic renounces the policy of Nuclear First Strike.

The Republic renounces the policy of Eternal Zero Infrastructure as inherently inimical to our concept of human rights and dignity.

The Concilium Ministrorum and Concilium Civitatis may, by a sixty-seven per cent majority vote, declare a State of Emergency in the case of serious threats against the Republic. The Concilium may, by a simply majority, vote to end the Emergency.

In the event that any Official of the State should fail to perform his duty, he may be removed by a sixty-seven per cent vote of the Concilium Ministrorum and Concilium Civitatis,

The above Constitution is hereby promulgated by agreement of the Provisional Government of the Republic of Aquisgrana.


Magistratus of the Concilium Ministrorum
