The Ministerial Palace is the residence and workplace for the Olpenese MoC. It is located at 100 Liberty Blvd. and has been the residence, on and off, of every single MoC and 3 of its emperors. The building is an icon of Olpenese wealth, beauty, and liberty.
The lavish building was designed by English architect Daniel Williams. Mr. Williams modeled grand French palaces. The construction was initially meant to represent the might and wealth of the Olpenese empire. Construction took place between 1675 all the way too 1689. The building was designed using mostly marble, but the cost was a major reason for the end of the empire. The building mostly had to be rebuilt after the First Olpenese Revolution due to major canon attacks on the then residence of the emperor. This occurred soon after the Scezonian Platinum Rush, which quadrupled the wealth of the nation in less than 3 years.
Due to the gradual wear and tear of the old offices and bedrooms, MoC William Brenside signed Executive Order 3113 which ordered a third wing to be constructed for the use of recreation and living by the MoC and his or her family. Approximately 13 years later, the grand chandelier of the cabinet room had collapsed 12 minutes before a meeting. This gave security staff, the MoC, and the public a reason to fear the stability of the old structure. 2 months after the collapse, MoC Prychall declared that the new area, dubbed “the Apple” after a reporter compared the grandeur of it too New York aka the Big Apple, would be expanded to also house the MoC and his/her family. By the following Summer, the MoC moved into the newly built residential area after residing in the MoC’s estate.
Today, the Ministerial Palace serves as the seat of the executive branch and as a seat of the government in general. Its current residents, the MoC, and the ministerial palace have not indicated that any changes are too be made. The current composition is the Historical Ministerial Palace Zone, the Apple, and the Extremity Zones.
Early History and Creation
The creation of a new palace for the emperor first came up in 1669 when Emperor Jacobin confiscated 170 acres of land across the country for future construction. In 1672, he invited 10 major league architects from around the globe to submit their designs for the palace. Other architects were also allowed to submit designs. Ultimately, an English contestant not specifically invited won over the heart of the sovereign.
He was able to secure 1,000,000 dollars USD 2021 for the project. He had approximately 70% finished when he ran out of money. He has to request a further 28 million dollars. This angered the king, but he did eventually oblige and give him a spending amount of 40 million dollars. This was able to
Rooms within the Ministerial Palace
The Ministerial Palace has 81 rooms in total. 22 of those rooms are dedicated to the life of the MoC. 33 are dedicated to staff and servants as well as rooms where work of staff are done (ie fancy kitchens, janitorial closets). The remaining 26 are official rooms. These include the State Office, the Cabinet Room, the Situation Room, and the press room.
Many of these rooms are very famous and known across the nation, the State Office, for example, is known more than the MoC themselves. The press room is shown in almost every press conference. Most rooms though also have a functional purpose. For example, the Cabinet room is actively used by the MoC to consult with their ministers and aids. The Purple Room is used as a meeting place for negotiations hosted by SO, and it has seen a variety of negotiations such as those between the PRS and the UDAF
