Along with the dissolution of the Council was the collapse of the East India, West India, and Brittany Companies. What was considered anarchy by the outside world was technically correct - at this point in time, the "Bailiwick of Conti" had no official government or central military force. What Conti did have, however, was an inspired populace who felt like a more direct, efficient form of government was needed to address the needs of the growing nation. In the place of the Council of Ten, a series of Departments have been created with a central set of guidelines that all must follow. Each Department is headed by a Department Governor, who has direct control over the workings of the Department. Each Department is independent, and a decision by one Department is considered a decision by all. There are eighteen Parishes, which act as counties would, and each Parish is governed by a Parish Governor. Each PG has the power of law and order over his Parish, but cannot overrule a Department decision. There are many more changes, among them a new Head of State position, jokingly called the Department Head. The DH has the power to change each Department without cause, and has a term of sixteen years unless impeached by every Department but one. Finally, Conti has been renamed Brittany - a much-wanted change for the people of Brittany, especially since the old name had no meaning whatsoever. With a new government set up, the Department of Foreign Affairs Governor Alphonse Dupont issued a statement on the evening of April 2. [quote]The Nation of Brittany wishes to express her gratitude with the nations of the world for allowing us to handle our own internal affairs peacefully. It is a refreshing change of pace to see the nations of Europe not squabbling over land and instead allowing the people to do what it is they wish to do. From today, we shall be known as the Nation of Brittany, government by Albert Chevalier, Department Head of Brittany.[/quote] Attached to the statement was a list of the new government names and counties, none of which were particularly relevant. Leon Chevalier, head of Brittany, was seen making a speech that day about the progress Brittany has made since the Council of Ten took over, and it was not their fault for the lack of progress but the inefficient form in which they were put into. The Council was given a hearty retirement plan. [/left] [/center] Edited April 3, 2010 by Sargun Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
