Domanania wrote:


Overview

The Federated States of Domanania is a Unitary Semi-Presidential Republic, with a unicameral legislature.

The prime minister and cabinet are both accountable to the president and the Grand Congress. The president chooses the prime minister and the cabinet, but must have the support of a congressional majority for his choice. In order to remove a prime minister or the whole cabinet from power, the president can dismiss them, or the Grand Congress can remove them by a vote of no confidence.

The president oversees foreign policy and defense policy and the prime minister domestic policy and economic policy. The division of responsibilities between the prime minister and the president is not explicitly stated in the constitution, but has evolved as a political convention based on the constitutional principle that the prime minister is appointed (with the subsequent approval of a congressional majority) and dismissed by the president.


Grand Congress

The Grand Congress operates as the only legislative branch within Domanania, and also has been given Judicial powers by the constitution.

Legislative Branch:

Each member of the Grand Congress is elected by the people in Federal Districts. Each Federal District is granted 1 representative for every 100,000 citizens living in the district (Total of 200, 10 of which go to the Judicial branch). Each representative can join one of the 6 legal political parties, and is granted a seat in the Government, Opposition, or Cross Bench.

The Grand Congress has the power to vote laws into power, and to veto the President. Should they deem it necessary, Congress can vote to impeach the sitting president, with a 3/4 majority vote.

They also have the power to officially declare war, but the President holds the power to conduct limited military actions without the approval of congress. Should Congress deem the president has gone too far, they can vote to remove the presidents limited power and hold it for a period of 6 motnhs. During this time, Congress has sole authority over military actions. Once this time is up, the president has their limited powers back.

Judicial Powers:

There exists no separate Judicial branch. It instead is a part of the Grand Congress. The heads of the Judicial branch are elected as legislatures to Congress, but for every 20 Congressmen, there is 1 Head of the Judicial branch. There is currently a total of 10.

These members do not vote in Congress, and they must approve a law before it can be passed. They can also veto a bill before it is sent to Congress or the President. They act as the highest court in the Federation, and have supreme power over the lower courts.


President and Prime Minister

The President:

The President hold no supreme executive power, as it is divided with the Prime Minister. The President has the power to block bills with a veto from Congress, and has authority over Foreign and Defense policies. They act as the commander in chief during times of war or emergency. They also have the power to declare limited military action without the approval of congress.

During times of war, the President has full control over the military, and has the power to temporarily limit Congresses power to veto bills. Bills can still be blocked by the members of the Judicial branch, and have a reduced number of votes required to remove the bill if passed during this time.

The Prime Minister:

The prime minister hold the power over domestic and economic policy, and is the last counter to the President. The Prime Minister can veto and block any bill and force a recount before it is officially passed. They also act as the speaker of the house when the congress convenes.

I've been pretty lucky with algae so far, the brown diatom wave was more or less handled by snails and the only green algae build up is on the floating tips of my val that I trim and on the very top of the rock

Here is Nhoor's:

General
Nhoor is a bottom-up democracy with complete separation of powers. The current political system has been in place since 1978. The people elect the parliaments of the municipalities (parlament li garhinili) of Nhoor, who in turn elect the parliaments of the provinces (parlament li vōqhinili), who in turn elect the parliament the nation (parlament li rhwsali), the latter of which is commonly known as Conast (‘The Floor’). The chairperson of the nation’s parliament has de facto head of state of Nhoor since 2017, but this is a mostly ceremonial function. The incumbent chairman has been His Relevancy Ōphɵd Carōmhīqh since his predecessor unexpectedly stepped down in 2015.

The legislative powers consist of the aforementioned parliaments. The national parliament of Nhoor is a unicameral institution. It has 199 members who are elected by the members of the provincial parliaments for a four year term. Each province elects a certain amount of seats the number of which is based on its number of inhabitants; before each election the amount of seats represented by a province is recalculated. The members of the provincial parlements elect the members of the national parliament using a system of proportional representation (following the Sainte-Lagüe method), except for the province of Sīron-Onharh, which uses a Single Transferable Vote system.

Under the current constitution, national elections took place in 1977, 1981, 1985, 1989, 1993, 1997, 2001, 2005, 2009, 2013, and 2017. Usually they take place on the first Sunday of April, with the new parliament being inaugurated on the first Monday of May of the same year.

The executive powers of each level are (mostly) self-regulating institutions, which means that the incumbent alderpeople (pɵvar, municipal level), councillors (nhāsɵlteƨy, provincial level), and ministers (munusta, national level) decide for themselves who will leave and who will join them, although the respective legislative institutions can issue binding advise on the appointment or removal of executive members if they consider this in the nation’s interest. The chairperson of the Council of Ministers is the head of government, currently First Minister Armhad Cellichen, since the Council reshuffle of August 2019. First Ministers have been since 1978:

  • 1978 - 1981 Corhad Sulumeqh

  • 1981 - 1994 Osytir Javedeqh

  • 1994 - 1999 Tado̦d Caqirlaqh-Swpar

  • 1999 - 2002 Maron Rhuchws

  • 2002 - 2005 Halisin Camiredy

  • 2005 - 2012 Rhanhɵd Bīcela̦ch

  • 2012 - 2019 Sanhad Bōra̦

  • 2019 - now Armhad Cellichen

The members of the judiciary are appointed by citizens who have a law degree; citizens with a law degree cannot vote in the elections for the legislative parliaments. Members of the judiciary do not necessarily have to be citizens of Nhoor, but they will have to have a proven knowledge of the Nhoor constitution and the Nhoor Civil and Penal codes, and master the Nhoor language.

Political parties and elections
Political parties can contest the elections on the national level if they participate in at least one third of the provinces (5) representing at least one third of the total amount of seats in the national parliament (67). Parties that are currently fulfilling these requirements and obtained seats during the last elections are the following (from left to right):
  • Norhim pw Qhamhwsana (NQh, 'General Collective', socialists and communists; currently 2 seats in parliament; pink)

  • Cwstana qo Onnubecāsa̦qo li Jorali (COJ, 'Workers' Party of the Dominion', socialdemocrats; 26 seats; red)

  • Cwstana qo Rhonhwcoqo (CRh, 'Nature Party', greens and environmentalists; 10 seats; light green)

  • Suhemhwn qo Illwnoqo s Qarhasytwnoqo (SIQ, 'Union for Progress and Prosperity', liberaldemocrats; 65 seats; dark blue)

  • Onhws li Jorali (OJ, 'Future of the Dominion', intellectuals and pragmatists; listed under 'other' in the table below because of first time participation; 1 seat; yellow)

  • Līberal pw Cwstana (LC, 'Liberal Party', liberals; 35 seats; light blue)

  • Cwstana qo Esaswnoqo (CE, 'Party of Liberties', libertarians; 15 seats; purple)

  • Cwstana qo Curhisorhanoqo s Jo̦qhuroqo (CCJ, 'Party of Agrarians and Fishermen', religious conservatives; 31 seats; dark green)

  • Cwstana qo Qhonhwroqo s A̦sytanaqo (CQhA, 'Party of Values and Tradition', religious conservatives; 10 seats; orange)

  • Democraƨīa̦nhoch pw Hwrhiswcamhana (DH, 'Democratic Alliance', ultra-conservatives; 4 seats; brown)

Monarchy
Nhoor used to have a king as its head of state, but the throne has been vacant since the childless last king Armhad V went insane and was confined to a mental institution in 1978 where he died in 2017. Although there is a republican movement that thinks that the monarchy should be abolished altogether, a majority prefers to keep looking for a new monarch.

(META: It is my intention of looking for a new monarch of Nhoor among suitable foreign candidates; this search can be an RP theme)

Government ministers
As mentioned, the members of the Council of Ministers are normally appointed by the Council of Ministers itself. In general this system works as long as there is at least one member of the Council left who can appoint fellow ministers. If for some reason there are no members left, parliament appoints one or more ministers to get the system going again. Since the system was put into place in 1978, the number of ministers that was replaced at the same time hasn't exceeded five or six, which is less than one third of the total number of members of the Council of Ministers. The incumbent members of the Council of Ministers are:

I've been updating my overview dispatch, and I succeeded in messing it up. Turns out adding tables willy-nilly doesn't make it look more organised.

On another note, I did a thing:

This dispatch lists the real-life nationalities of members of The Western Isles. This dispatch is for OOC benefit and has little to no bearing on the direction of RP and in-character nationbuilding. While this dispatch is mostly for fun, you could also use it to estimate peoples’ active times on NationStates and/or discord, and also to find someone to talk to in case you’re interested in a particular real-life country. The Internet can be a wonderful thing – it’s like penpals on steroids.

I added some details on the monarchy in Nhoor:

General information
Before the Nhoor established their dominance over the region that is currently known as Nhoor, there were other ethnic kingdoms and realms, most notably the First and Second Kinaera Kingdoms (see History of Nhoor). Up to the 17th century, the area was divided in several smaller states, three of which (Ta̦rleqh, Orleqh, and Camhɵrlanh) were dominant. The rule of Ta̦rleqh was taken over by the Hangate of Tachil and its successors and under its influence Ta̦rleqh managed to assert its dominance over the entire area. Formal unification took place in 1644 with the establishment of the Dominion of Nhoor under the rule of the House of Cenharruc, which lasted until the death of King Armhad V in 2017.

Following King Armhad V's confinement to a mental institution in 1978, the government started looking for a successor, as the King had no children or other close relatives except for Queen Kadra, the widow of his cousin King Urhod V. There are a couple of more remote branches of the family tree which are intertwined with the royal houses of other countries but these lines were only briefly investigated. Nothing noteworthy happened until Prince Maximus of Havalland presented a claim to the throne of Nhoor in July 2019. Talks are underway and as of October there is a good chance that Maximus will indeed become the next King of Nhoor.

List of Kings of Nhoor

The Royal Family of Nhoor was hit by a series of unfortunate events in the 50s and 60s of the 20th century, with several members of the already small family dying before their time due to e.g. drug overdoses or car accidents. When the last remaining member Armhad V ascended the throne in 1971 after his cousin Urhod V died after hitting his head while swimming alone in his private pool, Armhad was in his early twenties and wholly unprepared to assume the royal duties. On top of that, he turned out to have a mental illness and was eventually declared insane and confined to a mental institution in 1978 where he died in 2017.

The King's unsuitability to lead the country had caused Nhoor's politicians to draft a change of the Constitution which came into effect in 1978, a couple of months before the King was declared insane. The monarch's political powers, which already had been significantly reduced in the early 20th century, were abolished completely and the role of head of state became a fully ceremonial one. In absence of the King, the role of head of state is executed by the Chairperson of Parliament.

After Armhad V's accession to the throne in 1971, the government considered asking him to lift the exclusion to succession of the descendants of princess Calivī, the elder sister of king Armhad III, but a dispute immediately arose among these distant relatives who would have priority to succeed; it was therefore decided to maintain the status quo and to look for a completely new King (or Queen) elsewhere. Officially, the country's leading politicians are looking for a new Royal Family, but rumours had it that many of them secretly find the current situation rather satisfactory and aren't looking very actively. Only a small minority of republicans wishes to abolish the monarchy altogether. Nothing substantial happened until Prince Maximus of Havalland made his claim to the throne in 2019.

Titles, residences etc of Nhoor's head of state
Kings and Queens of Nhoor have been styled and have pronounced the oath as mentioned below since the accession to the throne by king Armhad III in 1898. The informal rhwd has been accepted by all monarchs since King Armhad IV (1939-1967); danha is in this case conjecture and based on the styles of female members of the royal family, as there have been no reigning Queens since that moment. It is however the prerogative of the reigning King or Queen to decide whether or not the informal style is accepted.

The English translation of the oath is the one issued by the Royal Household; the translation is a bit pompous and doesn't always reflect the Nhoor original (for starters, the Nhoor language has no plural forms, but in English only one 'Heaven, Earth, and Sea' sounds less poetical).

General information
Before the Nhoor established their dominance over the region that is currently known as Nhoor, there were other ethnic kingdoms and realms, most notably the First and Second Kinaera Kingdoms (see History of Nhoor). Up to the 17th century, the area was divided in several smaller states, three of which (Ta̦rleqh, Orleqh, and Camhɵrlanh) were dominant. The rule of Ta̦rleqh was taken over by the Hangate of Tachil and its successors and under its influence Ta̦rleqh managed to assert its dominance over the entire area. Formal unification took place in 1644 with the establishment of the Dominion of Nhoor under the rule of the House of Cenharruc, which lasted until the death of King Armhad V in 2017.

Following King Armhad V's confinement to a mental institution in 1978, the government started looking for a successor, as the King had no children or other close relatives except for Queen Kadra, the widow of his cousin King Urhod V. There are a couple of more remote branches of the family tree which are intertwined with the royal houses of other countries but these lines were only briefly investigated. Nothing noteworthy happened until Prince Maximus of Havalland presented a claim to the throne of Nhoor in July 2019. Talks are underway and as of October there is a good chance that Maximus will indeed become the next King of Nhoor.

The Royal Family of Nhoor was hit by a series of unfortunate events in the 50s and 60s of the 20th century, with several members of the already small family dying before their time due to e.g. drug overdoses or car accidents. When the last remaining member Armhad V ascended the throne in 1971 after his cousin Urhod V died after hitting his head while swimming alone in his private pool, Armhad was in his early twenties and wholly unprepared to assume the royal duties. On top of that, he turned out to have a mental illness and was eventually declared insane and confined to a mental institution in 1978 where he died in 2017.

This is just the last dynasty of Cenharruc; I could expand to the previous dynasties of the archduchies and the old kingdoms but that will take some more time.
