Charter of the Constituent Independencies of Greater Cyngland
CHARTER OF THE CONSTITUENT INDEPENDENCIES OF GREATER CYNGLAND
Greater Cyngland is one, a nation of nations, united in our common identity. With this, the governance of the independencies under the authority of the Cyng is established. Sovereign independencies, under the leadership of the Crown of the Eternal Dragon, through the strength of union and common understanding, abide by this charter in working towards our utopian ideal.
1 THE INNER CIRCLE
The Inner Circle is to be the primary executive governing body of the nation.
1.1 STRUCTURE OF THE INNER CIRCLE
Cyng will reign atop the Inner Circle in perpetuity. The elected World Assembly Delegate will be tasked with the general day-to-day operation of the region. The Prime Commissioner reigns over the Body Committee of the Inner Circle, which consists of the Commissioner of Domestic Affairs and Commissioner of Foreign Affairs.
The Commissioner of Domestic Affairs and Commissioner of Foreign Affairs both nominate two Directors who are to be entrusted with performing specific tasks regarding the governance of the region.
1.2 THE SOVEREIGN CYNG
The reigning Cyng is recognized as the highest authority in the land by the grace of our tradition. Supreme authority in the governing of the nation is vested in the Cyng. The Royal veto is all-powerful and may not be challenged.
The Capitol region, to be known as Inner Cyngland, is recognized as a directly ruled region, distinct from self-governing independencies. Due to the nature of the governance of this region is directly derived from the Crown, which holds supreme authority, Inner Cyngland is forbidden from participating in national elections, with the sole exception of the World Assembly Delegate.
1.3 THE WORLD ASSEMBLY DELEGATE
1.3.1 Electoral Process
The office of World Assembly Delegate of Greater Cyngland is granted to the independency which has procured the highest number of official World Assembly endorsements from its allies. This independency may select one of its citizens to serve as World Assembly using any selection method. The Delegate serves until he is either recalled by his independency, his independency loses the plurality of valid endorsements to another, or he is impeached for negligence.
Independencies must acknowledge an individual to ascend to the office of Delegate within five days of obtaining the plurality of endorsements. Failure to do so will be considered abdication of the privilege of the office.
1.3.2 Authority and Responsibilities
The World Assembly Delegate of Greater Cyngland serves the dual role of highest elected official and national envoy to the World Assembly.
The Delegate in His authority as national envoy to the World Assembly is expected to promote the values of the nation abroad. The Delegate is expected to, in transparency, address the nation with regards to His votes and decisions within the World Assembly.
The World Assembly Delegate holds the power of the Delegatory veto, the power to overrule decisions made by lesser members of the Inner Circle.
In the absence of the Cyng, the Delegate presumes the powers of the highest office in the nation and is expected to carry out the day-to-day running of the nation. These powers are relinquished to the Cyng upon His return.
In the event of the end of the Royal bloodline, the Delegate becomes the permanent highest national authority.
1.3.3 Removal from Office
Delegates may be removed from office for negligence of duties, abuse of power, or treason, by the following methods:
• Unilateral decision by the Cyng
• Unanimous decision from the Prime Commissioner, Commissioner of Domestic Affairs, and Commissioner of Foreign Affairs
• Impeachment by the National Assembly
Removed Delegates must cooperate as the process of removing endorsements from their independency. Failure to do so will result in the forced ejection of said independency from the union by the Cyng.
1.4 THE PRIME COMMISSIONER
1.4.1 Electoral Process
The Prime Commissioner is to be elected to terms of five years based on independency. Polls for elections of Prime Commissioners will be opened on the first Friday of June and remain open for three days thereafter. The following three things are required for an independency to vote in elections for Prime Commissioner:
I. World Assembly Membership
II. A greater amount of influence in Greater Cyngland than any other region, as defined by the World Census.
III. A population of at least one billion citizens
Independencies which meet these requirements may cast one vote for which independency will select the Prime Commissioner.
Should no independency receive the most of all votes, a second-round election will take place the following week, in which the candidate with the fewest votes will not participate. Should no candidate receive a majority in this election, a third-round election will take place the following week, following the same process. This will continue until an independency is elected with a clear majority of the vote.
Once an election winner is declared, the new Prime Commissioner will take office in an inauguration ceremony held at Palace Darechbrugn by the Cyng.
