The Greenland Republic

GR Flag

Greetings,

The Greenland Republic (GR) was one of the earliest alliances, formed in the very beginnings of Cybernations. After a brief existence, the candle of the Republic was extinguished and the alliance was morphed into another. Now, the Republic is back - re-established by a group of nations whose desire for honour, justice and friendship have formed lasting bonds.

If you want to grow in an environment where you can get involved in government, have your voice heard, and do what this game was made for you to do - have fun - then you should join the glorious Greenland Republic. If you wish to join, please visit our website at http://greenland.cn-source.net or post here with your nation and ruler name and we'll message you shortly . We're an alliance based on the Blue Team, and although we are small in numbers, we easily turn our nations into military and economic superpowers, as evidenced by our high average strength (13,000 and rising), and our total national strength of over 1,200,000.

Our IRC channel is #GR on irc.esper.net. Enclosed is a copy of our Constitution.

Take Care,

Celtic

The Greenland Republic

The Constitution of the Greenland Republic

Preamble

We, the allied peoples of this Global Alliance, in order to provide justice and security throughout the Cyber World, to provide for the common defence of our members, to promote growth and education of their nations and to provide other alliances with a stalwart, honourable ally do hereby establish this Constitution for the Greenland Republic.

Title

This organization of nations will hereafter be referred to as the Greenland Republic. The name reminds us of our shared values of honour, justice and friendship.

Article I: Admission and Membership

To be admitted into the Republic, one must visit the Republican forums and fill out an application containing the following:

1. Nation Name

2. Ruler Name

3. War Status (Are you in any?)

4. Current and/or Previous Alliance Memberships (if any)

Filling out an application does not guarantee membership into the Republic. To be a member, one must agree to the following:

1. Team Colour must be Blue. A grace period of seven days will be granted for nations to find new trading partners. This may be waived by the Triumvirate.

2. Membership in other alliances is not permitted, under any circumstance.

3. Members must be members in good standing of the general CyberNations community. Those that have wronged other alliances, or maliciously committed acts deemed deplorable by the Republic will not be admitted.

4. All members of the Republic are bound to this Constitution, and to the rule of the interim government. Those found to be contravening this guideline will face disciplinary action up to and including ejection from the alliance.

Article II: The Head of State

The Archon

This member is the head of the alliance. Elected to a two month term, offset from the Triumvirate, this member should exemplify the spirit of the Republic. The Archon acts as a check to the power of the Triumvirate. This position carries with it certain powers, as detailed below:

1. This position has the power to dismiss the government and call for new elections at any time if it is determined that the interim government is incapable of fulfilling their role. This power may be used only after a poll is publicly posted for all alliance members for 48 hours asking if they have confidence in the government. The poll must obtain a minimum of 50 votes to be considered valid. If 70% of the voters vote that they have no confidence in the government, the Archon may dismiss the government and call for new elections.

2. The Archon will sit as an arbiter in all Tribunals, and will have the final say on sentencing of the accused.

3. All changes to this document must be ratified by the Archon and the Triumvirate before they are to be made official.

4. The Archon cannot hold office as a Triumvir or Minister.

5. The Archon has full veto power over any legislation passed by the Triumvirate. This veto may be overturned if the Triumvirate and appropriate Minister(s) unanimously agree to do so.

Article III: The Heads of Government

The Triumvirate

This group consists of three members who are the elected legislative heads of the alliance. Elected by the people, the Triumvirate will hold office for 2 months offset by one month from the Archon. The Triumvir position carries with it certain powers, as detailed below:

1. The Triumvirate, through the Minister of Defence, controls the readiness and deployment of the Army of the Republic

2. The Triumvirate, through the Minister of Foreign Affairs controls the activities of the Republican diplomats

3. The Triumvirate through the Minister of the Interior has the final say on the acceptance of all new recruits, and on the rate of recruitment in general.

4. The Triumvirate must sign all legislation and treaties before they become official policy of the Republic.

5. The Triumvirate has the power to place the Republic in a state of war with another alliance when approval of the Minister of Defence is secured.

6. An interim Triumvir is not permitted to hold office as the Archon or as a Minister.

All legislation is to be equally considered by the Triumvirate.

Passing Legislation

All legislation that is properly proposed to the Triumvirate can be accepted, rejected outright, or rejected pending further information. Legislation can be passed with majority support of the Triumvirate. Amendments to this Constitution must attain complete Triumvirate support, and support of the Archon. Signatures of all three Triumvirs must appear on all pieces of legislation, or constitutional amendments. The Archon can veto legislation passed by the Triumvirate, but the veto may be overturned if the Triumvirate and one affiliated Minister unanimously agree to do so.

Signed for the Republic,

The Founders
