Government/Voting Process

Citizens are able to impeach officials if they deem them unfitting.

Officials are elected by the people, and form a board that discusses issues and presents ideas. All board members hold the same degree of power, but they are split into branches based on their field of expertise. There is a general issues branch, a judicial branch, and a legislative branch. These branches mostly exist for proper discussion and productivity; ideas and decisions are still presented to the whole board.

There are also two presidents that are also elected, and who have slightly more power than the board members. They facilitate the government, and are meant to represent the people and be their spokesp, and to handle diplomacy with other nations.

All military issues and diplomatic relations are handled entirely by the government, but most issues are ultimately decided by citizens through a vote. The government will present ideas to them, which they can veto or pass depending on a majority of at least 15%.

Not everyone is allowed to vote- citizens are required to pass a fairly basic test that judges their political awareness to be given the right to vote. If they do, they are granted the role of delegate. This exam is not meant to be rigorous or time-consuming, it is simply meant to see who will actually put in the effort.

All government officials hold their positions for five years before the next election process. They can serve up to two terms in a row before they are required to let someone else take the position. However, they can run again after that personís term expires.

Follows the principles of legal-rational authority.
