We've filed another GHR. It's probably still not anything serious. Just someone trying to scare us but there is no bite to this small bark.
So we won the regionals for the number of Kenneth Parcells per capita?
Who wants The Republic of Teriyaki-Barbecue Chicken Wings to come by?
Nobody will when they discover Cuban Sandwiches! You can't eat your Teriyaki-Barbecue Chicken Wings without your Cuban Sandwiches!
Knew you could do it.
Jeez that was starting to worry me...watch the next issue I get im gonna blow it and end up back at average :P
~Minister of Justice announcement~
So to get back to a question that was posed by Guertonia earlier: whether a cabinet member in violation of civil/political freedoms would be allowed to substitute a puppet to take over the ministerial role, and in the process avoid probation or replacement; I have an interpretation to share with you all.
I have decided that this should not be allowed. By establishing a higher freedom standard for cabinet positions than the average charter member, we have determined as a region that members in administrative roles should serve as exemplary roles to others. And by using alternative means to fulfill continued service does not follow in good faith or the spirit of the charter. This is the same line of reasoning we used to criticize CMK when they resided in The Internationale, and we decided it was unfair to do so and continue to reign over the DSAlliance. Additionally, when a nation joins our region to annoy, instigate, or harass, and after several warnings they are ejected, we would not want that nation to undergo the same lengthy procedure only to promptly return under a different alias each time. So in order to avoid appearance of impropriety, conflict of interest, and an unfair advantage that would not otherwise be granted to average residents, the tactic of puppet substitution for the purpose of evading charter enforcement shall be rendered illegal. If a member already has a designated puppet for use in the cabinet or world assembly, and it was the puppet that took the seat (but not necessarily elected), that is fine and shall remain legal. If need be, should a cabinet member want to substitute a puppet in their role for reasons other than civil/political requirements, and can demonstrate this is the case, they can appeal to the supreme court. This is not intended to serve as precedent for any other rulings involving puppets or inter-regional travel, such as asylum, as this applies solely to basic residency requirements.

I don't remember if I am supposed to post this anywhere on the forums, so apologies in advance.
(p.s. I hate attempting to write lengthy posts from a smartphone. It almost always screws up and I end up having to discard it and type it all over again from scratch. Arg!)
Well now I sound like a jerk! :P
