The Citizenship Reformation Act 2017

Section I: Preamble

NOTICING the current precedent that provides vague rules involving regional citizenship.

Section III: Legal Provisions

Sub-Section I: The Minister of the Census

The Minister of the Census shall be appointed by the Prime Minister, to any qualifying member of the Council of State. There must always be a Minister of the Census at any given time. The Minister of the Census may, with the consent of the founder and Prime Minister, provide exceptions to citizenship for individual nations.

The Minister of the Census shall have the following duties:

  • The duty to monitor all regional polls, votes or legislative matters (especially in regard to the GA) for any and all voter fraud.

  • The duty to monitor regional elections for any and all voter fraud. The Minister of the Census shall work closely with the Founder and the Supreme Court to ensure the validity of regional elections.

Sub-Section II: Transition of Status

  • Any newcomer in the region shall by default be classified as an immigrant, afterwhich they may advance to secondary or primary citizenship once they qualify.

  • Any player from another region shall, by default be classified as a foreign envoy, afterwhich they may be promoted to ambassador, if selected by the region that they represent and approved by the cabinet of the Union of Democratic States.

Section IV: Acts of Implementation

Sub-Section I: Amending Legislation that Conflicts with this Bill

  • HEREBY Amends CL-020 Section II, Sub-Section II, Clause II to read as the following:


    A nation must hold residency in the Union of Democratic States for a period of 20 consecutive days, previous to the election date, before being eligible to vote, exempting members of the UDSAF. This clause does not apply to the By-Elections Act 2016. This clause does not apply to UDSAF members who joined during the election period, as defined by the Electoral Regulations and Standards Act 2016.

  • HEREBY declares that whereas this document may conflict with regional law, this document shall remain supreme.
