The position of Mayor is the penultimate position of power within the Region, but do not be alarmed! The mayor is kept in check by a system of checks and balances, both within the region, which can be seen in the constitution, and by the Union. The main role of the Mayor is to oversee the other branches of government, and is also required to write the recruitment telegram used during their term. They are elected every 4 months.
The second highest ranking individual within the region, is the Vice-Mayor. The main role of this position is to advise the Mayor on governmental matters, and act in their stead should the Mayor be otherwise indisposed, until their return. They also take over should the Mayor be impeached, until an election can elect a new Mayor. The Vice-Mayor is also elected every 4 months.
The World Assembly Delegate is the region’s main representative within the World Assembly, and is the third in the succession line, should issues with the prior two position arise. They are picked by the Mayor, though the Citizens can motion to have the position removed from an individual, which would require a new candidate to be chosen.
The council, unlike the previous three positions, is made up of every nation within the Region that have maintained their citizenship, as laid out in the constitution, for a period of one week. The council meets to discuss bills, laws and other legislation, and to vote on this legislation.
The Citizens’ Court is made up Regional Judges, the number of which is proportional to the number of members within the Discord server. Their role is to preside over cases brought before their judgement, to ensure justice is dealt fairly within the region.
Finally, there are the 3 distinct ministries, each headed by their respective Directors;
1) The Ministry of Internal Affairs – This ministry’s main roles include recruitment, helping newcomers and maintaining the security of the region.
2) The Ministry of Regional Events – This ministry’s focus is on the culture and events of the region, being the head of the regional RP, regional festivals and celebrations
3) The Ministry of Communications – This ministry is in charge of the regional newspaper, the Citizens' Alliance Digest, which is released once a month.
