Leonism wrote:Since the ranks of citizens of Leonism feature prominently in my RP posts, I wrote them up in a factbook for all to see, here

Upon graduating school and the basic military training that follows it at age 19 or 20, every imperial citizen is assigned a basic rank, in most cases the lowest rank of Legionär, though higher initial ranks may be granted based on exemplary deeds or feats the young adult citizen has already done or achieved at this point.

Every rank is associated with a basic state salary, independent of the actual job of the citizen in question. This also serves as Leonism's answer to "Universal Basic Income" and rises with the rank attained.

The rank system as a whole is intended to be strongly meritocratic, so the more someone does for the greater good of the Imperium as a whole, the higher his or her rank will be over time. Note that the system is not centred on the military, you can become General or so by being an exceptionally good lecturer or doctor or farmer or whatever in principle, as long as the public has some benefit from what you do. Citizens not physically fit for military service also have a rank and can be promoted all the same. Even the most ordinary of citizens usually reach half a dozen promotions by the time they reach retirement age, though the rank can rise even thereafter.

Demotions are used as a punishment only for serious infractions, such as sentences for a criminal act.

All "Konsul" ranks (English: consul) are automatically members of the Konsulrat, Leonism's third house of parliament and the only one whose members are not democratically elected. Imperator Konsul, the highest rank, is also the head of state and government. It can only be achieved through election by all members of parliament (of all three chambers), which takes place every seven years. All adult citizens are eligible independent of rank, though usually most elects will have been some sort of Konsul or at least Admiral before.

OOC remark: Ranks are based on a mishmash of Roman, English and German ranks. Generals are outranked by admirals and the latter have nothing to do with the navy, that's just the way it is. A fleet can be commanded by generals and admirals may command large land or air forces.

Several specialist rank systems exist which measure somebody's skills in one particular field only, these are too numerous to list here.

Did you know that all citizens of the Imperium have ranks? Read more about the system in the factbook.

PS: a pic with rank insignia for these also exists, but I don't know where to upload it for posting it on NS. Anyone have an idea?

i might as well go china and do something similar, or maybe not and just stay prohibiting people from doing certain things

Seatlantis wrote:i might as well go china and do something similar, or maybe not and just stay prohibiting people from doing certain things

I'm not sure I fully understand what you mean, but if you refer to China's "social score" then yes, the rank system in Leonism ultimately serves a somewhat similar function by publicly rewarding "good behaviour" (with promotions) and sanctioning "bad behaviour" (with demotions, though these typically occur only after crimes, and more commonly through simply not promoting the individual in question). Note that my idea is older than China's.

You will notice that our stats show high civil and political rights, and I try to be consistent with the RP here: Leonism is not a dictatorship, though it has an executive leader who is both HoG and HoS (but then so has the US or France in RL), it has fair and frequent elections, but certain freedoms are indeed limited, namely freedom of religion and freedom of conscience (conscientious objection to military service is not possible) and the state is heavily militarized by outright abandoning the distinction between civilians and soldiers. Certain morals are also enforced by the state, such as both alcohol and smoking, as well as all other drugs, being banned.

On the other hand sexuality can be freely expressed between consenting adults, abortion is available on the IHS, gun possession is allowed in the same way as in Switzerland (reservists take their army rifles home after service), highways have no speed limit (as in Germany) and no censorship takes place. Journalists, doctors and lawyers have special protection from snooping on their client relations, just like in German law. Demonstrations are allowed and regularly take place.

Not all is well in Leonism, but a lot is.

"Frau Tribun, we have radar contact 30 km out, bearing 275, moving east" "Change heading 290, prepare to intercept, we'll make an exercise in interception out of this".

Frauke Sievert commanded the Skylancer class frigate Seeadler, one the latest vessels of the Imperiale Kriegsmarine. The ship was on sea trials in the Blaumeisenbucht. Sievert was an ambitious captain, sometimes described as hot-headed, and had made an impressive career so far, reaching the rank of Tribun at 29 and already commanding her own vessel. And what a vessel it was. The Skylancer class frigates were a product of Leonism's recent technological breakthroughs in fusion power and laser technology. Its main weapons were three turrets of two dual 20 MW Laser cannons each, with an effective range of 15 km. With a whopping 52 additional 5 MW Lasers for point defense, the vessel could defend against practically any missile-based attack. Built mainly for air defense, the ship lacked long-range punch beyond visual range, especially since the two planned MRM-16 missile launchers had not yet been installed on the Seeadler. The fusion reactor also allowed for a powerful engine and reaching top speeds of up to 132 km/h for short times. Sievert was going to test this ability now: "full speed ahead". The ship accelerated with an audible deep hum, the unknown blip on the radar screens closing in at a faster rate.

Soon they had the vessel in sight on the horizon, flying the flag of Custadia's Grand Fleet, about the same length as the Skylancer's 132 m. Sievert opened a broadband radio channel "Custadian ship, this is captain Sievert from the imperial leonist frigate Seeadler. You are inside waters commonly used as proving grounds for the Imperial navy of Leonism, we kindly advice you to change to a northerly course."

False start! The Battle of Jutland/Skagerrakschlacht isn't for another twelve days! :)

Mmph mmph MMPH. MMPH mmph mmph mmph. Mmph mmph MMPH MMPH.

Mmph!

Local custom dictates that today be a day all listen to the 4 tops, but dear leader really wants to listen to the new national album. Oh decisions decisions.

Loftegen 2 wrote:Stephyn Gram watched with bored indifference as two inflatable boats tied up at one of the many public docks that dotted Altenburg's riverfront. In theory he was supposed to greet them and inquire if they needed any services, such as fuel. In practice, he hated his minimum wage job and didn't give a rat's backside if these new arrivals needed anything or not. If they stopped and asked him, fine, sure, he'd help them; otherwise... The two dozen men and women who debarked from the boats walked right past him as he sat in the little kiosk at the shore end of the dock, focused on his phone. They didn't say anything, and Stephyn didn't even look up. Had he known that he'd just let two dozen foreign agents walk into the city, he still wouldn't have cared.

[Noon in Altenburg, Loftegen 2 ]
Having made their way to the press conference in the Justice Ministry building of Altenburg, four imperial agents sat down in the last row of the press conference room. Judging by how full the room was, the terrorist attack in George Nicholas Square was no longer the prime interest of the local media. The room was nearly full but not packed, and the imperials got seats easily. The conference was supposed to begin at noon, but Minister Jarret Kale kept the press waiting. It was a quarter past noon when he finally arrived, and the buzz in the room got a lot louder, then subsided.

At almost exactly the same time, Johann Jaspers and his team of three other agents entered the Altenburg Police Headquarters, only a few hundred meters away from the Justice Ministry. Jaspers walked up to the counter, drew his ID card and held it to the glass wall so that the police officer on the other side could see it clearly.

"Hello sir. I am Präfekt-Commander Johann Jaspers of the Imperial Intelligence Agency of Leonism. My team and I are here to investigate the recent terrorist attack on your city, which was carried out using carbines from our country. We are here to prevent conflict between our nations. Could we have a look at the weapons to help us find out who stole them from our country?"

The police officer behind the glass counter was absolutely flummoxed and left speechless at this sudden revelation...

breaking news: recently a few people started a protest against the car prohibiting law in Seatlantis, this caused that a larger and larger group joined this revolt, a few politicians also joined and after a long long debate in the capitol the country has been divided into two, a psycothic dictator took control of South Seatlantis which is now separated and upset with us.. we'll inform more in the time we get more information

I think Scani and some other nations are above the endorsments cap
