Welcome to the official home of the Northern Utopian Government on the NationStates site.

This dispatch offers links to other important dispatches on the three, separate branches of government outline in our Constitution and laws.


Legislative branch

The legislative branch of Northern Utopia is composed of a unicameral chamber named the Representative Assembly. For more information on the Representative Assembly and how you can get involved, please click the button below.

Assembly activity

To observe the Assembly in action, please join the Northern Utopia Government Discord server.


Processes

There are four distinct types of legislation:

  • Bills - Independent laws which effect legal change

  • Resolutions - Declaration of Assembly opinion, belief or understanding

  • Impeachment proceedings/no-confidence proceedings

  • Amendments to existing laws

To propose a piece of legislation, you should first gather comments and critique on the Representative Assembly '#discussion' channel of the Northern Utopia Government Discord server. All legislation should be written in formal English; if you require help with writing, please contact the President.

To be considered for discussion by the Representative Assembly, your proposal must be sponsored and moved by a Representative or the Vice President (who is also President of the Representative Assembly).

Representative Assembly procedure is governed by the Representative Assembly Act.


Composition of the 8th Representative Assembly

United Progress Alliance | 3 seat majority
Constitutional Panoptical Union | 1 seat
Representative Party | 1 seat

To see a list of all members, more information on elections to the Assembly and how to become a Representative, please see the dispatch linked below.
