Introducing the Awesome-O alliance

Before I begin I'd like to give you the link to our forums.

Charter of the Awesome-O alliance

Preamble

We created this alliance on the basis of change, and good ideas, of working together as a team for the betterment of our nations in this game called CyberNations. We believe that an alliance should be filled with people of good moral character. Positions should be filled based on a person's merit, not any other factors. We present this charter to govern our new alliance, and hereby create the alliance of Awesome-O.

Article 1, Membership

1.1 Any member in good standing in the CyberNations community, who is not a part of any other alliance, may apply to be a member in Awesome-O.

1.2. Before membership may be granted, nations must complete an oath to Awesome-O.

1.3. The oath is as follows, "I, (ruler name) of (nation name) do hereby pledge allegiance to the Awesome-O alliance, its membership and its government. I understand that by joining Awesome-O, I agree to and will abide by all rules, laws, and regulations, especially the Awesome-O charter. I will fight to the death to defend my alliance mates, and shall never surrender."

1.4 Membership may be suspended or revoked on authority of any Triumvir, for violation of any part of this charter. This suspension will not last longer than 72 hours. The member will then be given a trial mask and a formal list of charges must be presented by the Triumvir who suspended the member. A trial will be held, presided over by the High Council.

1.5 Membership may be denied to any member applying to Awesome-O

Article 2, Government

2.1. Awesome-O's government consists of (1) Queen, three (3) Triumvirs, Seven (7) High Council members, a Minister of Defense, a Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of Recruitment, Minister of Internal Affairs, and Minister of Education.

Queen

2.2 The Awesome-O Queen is a figurehead. The Queen does not have any powers in the alliance, but it is permissible to confide with her any information at the High Council or lower, however it is not necessary.

2.3 The Queen rules for life. If she leaves CN, the Triumvirs will choose a new Queen with a 3/3 vote.

Triumvirate

2.4. There will be 3 Triumvirs in the Government. They are the highest level of government within this alliance. If at such time they choose to leave the position, they shall hold in confidence all secrets of the alliance they learned while holding the position of Triumvir. The triumvirs serve until they resign, at which time the remaining triumvirs decide on a replacement.

High Council

2.5 The High Council will have a total of 7 Members. The High Council is the second in command in the government. High Council members hold this position for life, or until resignation or impeachment. The Triumvirate shall appoint all the seats of the Founding Council, then thereafter new members shall be chosen by a majority vote by the council.

2.6 Every two months, the membership votes for the Speaker of the High Council. All members of the High Council are put on a ballot, from which the Speaker is chosen. The Speaker of the High Council may only be impeached by the membership in a 2/3 vote. Triumvirs and other High Council members are not permitted to vote in the impeachment poll. An impeachment vote can be called for by a petition signed by three or more members of the alliance, not including triumvirs or High Council members. The Speaker of the High Council is responsible for announcing the results of all High Council votes.

2.7 For all other High Council members, a 3/3 vote from the triumvirate or a 6/7 vote from the High Council can impeach the member.

Ministers

2.8 Each minister is in charge of their given section. No Member of the Triumvirate, or High Council, shall do the duties of a minister unless they resign, or there is no deputy to fill the position.

2.9 The Ministers of Recruiting and Education, and Foreign Affairs, are elected by the members every two months. The Minister of Defense and Internal Affairs are appointed by a 2/3 vote of the Triumvirate.

2.10 Deputy Ministers are selected by the Minister of said department. Any Deputy selection can be overridden by a 6/7 High Council vote.

2.11 The Ministers and the Deputy Ministers can be put up for an impeachment vote by a 2/3 vote of the Triumvirate. The impeachment vote is then voted upon by the High Council. A 6/7 vote is necessary to impeach the Minister or Deputy Minister. If an impeachment vote is called during a time where the alliance is at war, a 2/3 vote if the Triumvirate, and a 5/7 vote of the high council will be sufficient to remove a minister or deputy minister.

2.12 The structure and duties of the departments not listed here shall be part of the Awesome-O Code.
