Section I: The King/Queen

The King/Queen is the ruler of The Federation of Rhine. He/she has the power to declare war with the consent of the Legislature. Just because the King/Queen has the most power in the federation does not mean they have absolute power. He/she is limited by the Legislature and Court System of the federation. He/she must obey by any and all laws made by the Legislature and obey by all rulings made by the Court System. If anything should happen to the King/Queen, the Legislature will appoint a temporary leader who will lead The Federation of Rhine until the King/Queen comes back.

In event that the King/Queen is forced to abdicate or freely abdicates, there must be several things done in exact order to not create a power struggle. First, the King/Queen must tell the Legislature and open up elections for a new King/Queen. Once that has been done and a week has passed, the general population of the federation is allowed to vote for the new King/Queen of The Federation of Rhine. Finally, after the new King/Queen has been voted in, the Legislature must swear in the new King/Queen with the following phrase.
