Article II: Royalty

Post by Ashla on Sun Dec 25, 2016 6:08 pm

Article II: Royalty
Section 1:
All Executive Powers are within the domain of the resident King/Queen, who will hold office for life or unless for reason of resignation. Upon death or resignation, powers will transfer to their eldest child. If two are present, the Union will vote between them. If none exist, the office will be put up to a popular vote, and a new head of state will be chosen by majority.

The hierarchy of royalty will be of the same structure as England's system of royalty.

Each member of the United Country may have their own royalty, but the Union as a whole will have a hierarchy of royalty, distinguished with the ending of the United Countries on their title. The rank of a royal in the Union's system may or may not be of equal rank in their native hierarchy.

No monarch will hail from a nation whom, in known history, has been an enemy of the union, or a terrorizer of it's member states. When a new line of royalty is started, a person must be of twenty years of age to run for the office. In addition, a candidate must be from a nation whom has been a member for a half-year, or since the ratification of this constitution.

In case of the ending of a royal family, the election will be started at the next meeting of the  Law Council, and will be dealt with in immediate haste.

When considered appropriate, a union royal may be rewarded, only if passed by majority vote, may such compensation take place.

Upon entrance into office, a royal must take the oath a royal takes upon coronation.

Section 2:
The Head Royal, and the Head Royal only, can declare war. Details of the war will be decided by the War Council, and the Law Council and the Law Council only may propose war or peace.

In addition, the Head Royal may make treaties under the same method as war, and may not act on their own to do either. If just procedure is ignored, the War Council is obligated to Ignore the royal.

The Royal, in rare cases, may appoint ambassadors, this is mostly the joint responsibility of the War and Law Councils.

The Royal may veto a candidate supreme court justice, but this may be overridden by a 2/3rd vote by the member countries.

Section 3:
The head royal must submit a report of all secret actions, and will continue this down their family line until the end of the following election. At the death of the previous royal, the new royal must publish the actions within that time.

Section 4:
All Members of the royalty may be tried for treason, and when brought to court, will be brought to the Supreme Court and Supreme Court only.

The Supreme Court may decide the punishment for treason, and has the power to enforce it.

The use of cruel punishments for treason, however, is prohibited.

When a new line of nobility is started, a person must be of twenty years of age to run for the office.

A terminology issue; royalty and nobility are different classes, the system as a whole is the peerage system, and not just centered around the nobility.

What would happen if the head royal were accused of a crime by a supreme court justice? That is a plausible scenario.

Then, as a normal court case, the jury, I.E. the supreme court justices, would decide if what they did was illegal, or if they even did it, then, the would decide the punishment

I have one objection. I am against the prohibition of cruel punishments for the head royal. My justice character may want to use a cruel punishment.

It's not necessary. Wouldn't a "Cruel" punishment be up to interpretation from the supreme court anyway? There's no reason to change the wording to suit one justice when the justice can interpret it on their own.

My character would define burning at the stake as being a fair and just punishment since the supreme court has the power to interpret the Constitution. Twisted Evil

Hmmm... punishments types for criminals should be similar to those used for treason. like life imprisonment.

And, if a member country attacks another member country, they should be made to pay for their actions, on the state level
