List of Imperial Decrees (By date of effect):

.:[ Decreto Imperial N º 1 ]:.

Imperial de la Asamblea [imperial Assembly]

Date Enacted: November the 22nd

Decreto Imperial N º 1 sets forth a body known as the Imperial de la Asamblea. The IA allows for provincial representatives and representatives of varying native tribes, and other ethnic groups of the Empire to gather in a legislative setting. Each group has 1 respective vote, with no one holding more than 1 vote. Through this decree, the freedom to gather and the freedom of speech is guaranteed during meetings of the IA, allowing everyone to voice their opinion and vote for the betterment of the Empire and it's citizens as a whole, not a select group.

.:[ Decreto Imperial N º 2 ]:.

Libertades garantizadas y la No Discriminación Política [Guaranteed Liberties and Non-Discrimination Policy]

Date Enacted: November the 22nd

Decreto Imperial N º 2 establishes the basic liberties of all citizens of the Empire, and also brings forth a non-discrimination policy. Due to this decree, all citizens are guaranteed the rights to liberty, freedom of speech, trial by jury, freedom of religion, right to petition, protection from unreasonable search and seizure, and protection from excessive bail and cruel and unusual punishment. These rights allow for all citizens to go about their day freely, and also allows Natives to practice their own religion without forced Catholic conversation, although this is strongly advocated among our society. The Non-Discrimination Policy allows for Natives to live freely without legal and daily discrimination, making this act punishable by fine. Places of work are also listed under this policy, as is the military.

The messenger bowed as he approached the Spanish king. After kissing his hand, he said to the monarch, "Your Highness, I have shocking news. The colonies in the New World have declared their Independence from us."

The king stared at nothing for a few minutes. Independence? What would that change? Colonies rebelling from an Empire was treasonous, and the traitors could be put to death. However, the colonies he had weren't exactly Asia. The Italian madman, what was his name, Columbus? Whoever sailed across the Atlantic Ocean believed he found a Western Route to Asia, when in fact he only stumbled upon a bunch of tribes of half-naked red people. The land was fertile though, but upon thinking about it, he decided that the lands weren't of utter importance. "Read me their Declaration of Independence," he said to the Messenger.

"Citizens, listen, here and today!

"

"Well, I assume as long as they remain Catholic and include us in their history, I suppose we can maintain a healthy friendship. Invite their leader here at once."

--

A few months later, Antonio de Mendoza received this letter:

To Antonio de Mendoza, Emperor of the New Spain,

You are invited to Madrid to meet with His Royal Highness King Ferdinand III, your Spanish brother in the Catholic faith. Please come as soon as possible so that we may greet you with open arms and begin a healthy relationship between our two countries. We eagerly await your arrival.

Antonio de Mendoza, now known to his citizens as Emperor Antonio I, received the letter a long while later. His messenger walked through the door, and looked at him with it in hand.

"Sir, it appears the mother country has sent us a letter."

Antonio nodded, and looked back at him

"Is that so? Let me read it myself."

Upon reading the letter, he was astounded. His catholic brethren wished to meet him, and talk. He prepared the flagship of the fleet, the Nueva Imperial, and set foot upon it. The journey would take quite awhile, and his heir would serve as a temporary regent.

"I will be back, eventually."

and with those last words, Antonio I set off for Spain.

A carriage escorted by sixteen dragoons awaited the Emperor in Gibraltar. As soon as he boarded off his ship, the Emperor was led inside the carriage, and the carriage set course for Madrid.

Madrid was a large city, well known for having some of the greatest fine arts in the world. However, unlike they way things normally were, there weren't many people in the streets minding their own business. Instead, most of Madrid's residents were gathered in and around El Palacio Real, the official residence of King Ferdinand. When the carriage made it's way to near it's destination, there were people on the sides of the streets cheering the arrival of the Emperor. Finally, the carriage arrived in the courtyard of the Palace, and the Emperor was taken inside into the throne room. When the King saw his arrival, he stood up, and everyone followed suit.

Bienvenidos, hermano," the king said to his visitor. "Welcome to Spain, the home of our ancestors."
