Headlines:

A New Constitution has been announced, Sword BJ has been given Dot Citizenship, three Cabinet members have resigned, the population decline has finally ended and growth has come back, Salibaic has been elected Prime Minister of Heart, and efforts are being made to grow RGBN's population.

A New Constitution for Force
Following nearly 8 months of work, a new Constitution has been implemented. This Constitution introduces the House of Representatives, rights of citizenship, classifications of law, the position of judge, shortened elections with fixed dates, and appropriate punishments for different crimes. Each region of Force shall elect one representative to the House for every 5 WA members it has. These representatives shall form the House of Representatives who are given the power to pass any new law (as long as it doesn't go against the Constitution) as well as remove any old law (laws originally passed by the House only). The creation of this House removes The Assembly which was only able to amend the Constitution and was made up of all citizens. Citizens now have the power to remove a representative by a simple majority vote; ensuring that representatives act in the best interests of the citizens. The rights of citizenship are also an important part of the new Constitution. Citizens who previously held no legal rights now hold these rights, preventing the government from stopping a fair trial, free protest, running in an election, publishing through an independent media outlet, or holding and expressing one's political views. Now, onto the next change. The judge is now responsible for handing out punishments on the advice of the jury while the prosecutor has the power to choose whether or not to pursue a case. This is a major change because it means that the Court's power is no longer concentrated in just one position. The addition of defined punishments for different crimes is also important because it means that the judge and jury can't arbritrarily hand out a punishment; they must only hand out an appropriate punishment for the crime. The shortening of elections is important because it means that more time can be spent on getting things done rather than focusing on elections. It's also true that people often vote only in the first few days of an election, so time that could be used working is instead used waiting for the results to be announced. The new Constitution of Force is a game-changer and will prove vital for the causes of democracy and prosperity in the region.
Sword BJ given Dot Citizenship
Following their resignation as Foreign Minister, Sword BJ was granted Dot Citizenship by the Founder, Renegalle. Dot Citizenship is the most prestigious award Force has to offer. Sword BJ was granted it for his extremely hard work, passion, and dedication to his office. What was seen from him is something that has never been seen in this office before; plans to change things actually being acted upon. Such passion and hardwork from a Minister has not been seen since Bieth resigned as Roleplay Minister almost a year ago. In Sword's tenure, he established embassies with The East Pacific and Wintreath among many others, convinced The North Pacific against building an embassy with the New Western Atlantic for its inaction against Bennisia, and remained omnipresent in the Cabinet, always willing to find solutions to problems, whether they related to his office or not. Sword will be missed as Minister of Foreign Affairs and his work for the office will not be forgotten.
Three Resignations: Ingloniania, Sword BJ, Lashnakia
This past month, the Force Government has been rocked by the resignations of some of its key members. On August 21, Minister of Roleplay Ingloniania resigned. Then on September 8, Minister of Foreign Affairs Sword BJ resigned. Just a day later on September 9, Deputy Prime Minister Lashnakia announced their resignation. In just 3 weeks, 3 Cabinet Members were gone. Why, some ask? We contacted them to find out.

Question Asked: Why did you resign?

Ingloniania: Well I resigned because I was getting really stressed because of the things I was expected of because I had a lot of other things that I had to do daily and I got really busy with other things such as friends, school, projects, etc.

Sword BJ: The real reason is I have no will to play NS anymore and the other reason is RL issues that prevented me from doing my tasks.

Lashnakia: As real life commitments and problems build up, I no longer feel able to serve Force to the best of my ability.

Population Decline Ends; Growth Comes Back
After months of slowly waning population in Force, new nations are finally coming again. Over the summer we went from 184 nations (in our capital region, Force) at the end of April to just 130 on September 19th. Luckily though, since September 19th, the capital has gained 25 nations; nearly a 17% increase. Summer in NationStates always is characterized by a drop in activity and the collapse of some regions, but Force has survived its second summer and is still going strong.
Rebooting RGBN
In our last edition, we discussed how we had taken over RGBN from its founder, Shenifar, to help to bring back activity and try to make it the large, friendly region it once was. Since then, Roleplay in the region has resumed and the population has almost doubled. Efforts are currently being made to re-establish law and a functioning government so that RGBN has a long future ahead of it.

Headlines:

The Heart Government has been dismissed, elections for the House of Representatives have been held, elections for the Court have been held, and more Ministers have been dismissed and replaced.

Heart Government Dismissed
In an unexpected series of events, the Heart Cabinet narrowly voted for intervention into the regionís affairs by Force. Following this vote, Prime Minister Libertatis Regalis of Force dismissed the Heart Government and appointed a caretaker government. The caretaker government consists of Farallaracks, Lashnakia, Vamperiall, and Waltonburg-Vallonheim. Their primary job is to establish a new Constitution for the region, facilitate new elections, and oversee the next government for its first few weeks in office. This whole dismissal of the government though, has not been without controversy. The government willingly gave up control in the first place because of its inability to make the region more active and a declining regional population. Many say that the government should have stayed in place to fix things for itself rather than having Force once again interfere. Whatever the result, Heart is in for an interesting next few months.

First Elections for the House

The first Elections for House have concluded, resulting in the creation of a Legislative Branch in Force. Six people announced their intention to run, they were Great Latinoamerica of Force, Seoul-Pyongyang of Force, Marcelli of Force, Salibaic of Heart, Western Chosetus of Force, and Wracobia of Force. All six were elected, but for some of them it was very close.

Force:
Western Chosetus: 7-0
Seoul-Pyongyang: 4-3
Wracobia: 5-2
Great Latinoamerica: 6-1
Marcelli: 6-1

Heart:
Salibaic: 3-0

Emergency Court Elections
Due to the absence of a Judge in the Court and the Prosecutor's job being heavily changed by the new Constitution, Emergency Court Elections were held this month. Only one citizen sought the position of Prosecutor, Sword BJ, and there were three contenders for Judge, Lashnakia, Western Chosetus, and Seoul-Pyongyang. After an unusually civil debate, voting was held. Sword BJ was unanimously elected Prosecutor and Western Chosetus was elected Judge.

Prosecutor:
For Sword BJ: 7
Against Sword BJ: 0
Abstain: 2

Judge:
Western Chosetus: 6
Lashnakia: 3
Seoul-Pyongyang: 0
Abstain: 0

Cabinet Shake-Up
Three ministers, Seoul-Pyongyang (Minister of Defense), Fortis Draco Islands (Minister of Communications), and Mokkland (Minister of Culture) announced their resignations in October. After speaking with them, it is clear that none of them would be able to maintain activity, or complete a satisfactory level of work. The new Defense Minister, Vamperiall, has already ramped up things in the military, conducting several operations already, and getting people involved quickly! Lashnakia, the new Minister of Communications has been working hard to produce high quality content for The Force Flyer and Quantumland, the new Minister of Culture has created a new map for Roleplay which will be implemented in the coming weeks.

Opinion Editorials
Wracobia:

"I think that the people of Force should be able to have more of a say in Democratic elections. This is because the citizens who aren't on the Force Chat on The Force Regional Forum are unable to vote. So I think that you should put a vote on the Force homepage on NationStates. Make it easier for the citizen to vote, and whats more, a telegram can be sent to everyone in Force to notify them about an election. This is just a thought to make Force a better place to be."

Glacieri:

"Less than a week ago the Heart government voted to let Force intervene with the government to help Heart recover from the last few months of emigration. Libertatis Regalis, the prime minister of Force, also deemed that a rewrite of the constitution was necessary and that their goal was to get 75 residents within the region.

Heart has had a rocky relationship with recruitment in the past anyway, primarily because any recruitment it has ad, it lost because Force was the region in charge. Many residents left because this is where the action was at. Libertatis will not be able to reach that lofty goal of 75 members and be able to keep it for long.

Kicking out the government is also an unnecessary action. How does Heart have any leadership in the future if Force overtakes the region without retraining or future assistance? The answer is that they canít. All of the previous government officials are left in the dark and have no way of learning how to run a region, therefore leaving the region to fail in the future.

It seemed the only way to keep recruitment up in the region was to draw attention to it. My first governmental job was under the controversial Bennisia as the Minister of Communications (MoCom). He at least brought the desired attention to the region that it needed to get people to stay, even proposing regional mergers to keep the community strong."
