Constitution of the Federal Republic of Caddia
The government of Caddia shall be a Federal Republic. The Chamber of Laws will have five seats. One for the vice president, one for the president, and the other 3 for elected citizens. Presidents and Vice Presidents are elected every 4 years. Law meetings will be held every 3 weeks, and citizens will be asked if there’s any laws they’d like to see. Ministers are elected by the people every 2 years. Voting day will be on March 5th, every year. In the event of a tie between two or more candidates, the Chamber of Laws will have a vote to decide. Citizens not living inside physical territory of Caddia will be allowed to vote, if they have a good amount of ways to communicate with the government.
The Making of Laws
A law will start out as a bill. These bills can be written by anyone. Bills written by the President and Vice President are sent straight to the Chamber of Laws (same goes with people on the Chamber of Laws, and any other important government figure). From there, they’ll be reviewed in a meeting at the Chamber of Laws. If the bill gets more than 80% approval, it will become a law. If not it will get vetoed. If a citizen writes a bill, the bill will be sent to the Chamber of Laws. They will arrange a date for the bill to be reviewed, then it will either get passed, or vetoed. Once a citizen-made bill is approved, the president will look over it. If they say no, a vote will be held publicly, and all will get to vote. The outcome will then decide the fate of the bill.
Provinces and States
Caddia shall be split up into provinces. States can be made if a area of Caddia has at least one citizen, and a government leader. States will be lesser than provinces, and will still have to follow federal law. There will be four provinces: Awhon, Yuclai, Olips, and Samher. The capital of Awhon will be Arino. The capital of Yuclai will be Osfor. The capital of Olips will be Lopsil. Finally, the capital of Samher will be Caddia City. If the government feels the need, a state will no longer be a state, and rejoin it’s province. If the state is in between two provinces, the state will be split up between the two provinces.
Territories will be anywhere where a Caddian Government Official has gone, and discussed with the owner of the area about taking it, and they said yes, it is now an official territory of Caddia. Territories don’t need permanent residents, and have to be seperate from the mainland Caddia.
Subs are a part of Caddia that are controlled by Caddia, but at the same time independent. An example of this would be a state of Caddia. They have their own government, but the government can do whatever they want with themselves. The Caddian government will write laws for Subs, but Subs will be able to approve, or veto those laws. Subs have to agree to federal law, but can make their own.
If a province, sub, or territory wants to succeed, they have to bring a succession file to the president. This succession file must have a 1 huge reason why they want independence. It also must have 5 reasons why. The president will show it to the vice. If they approve, the Chamber of Laws will vote on it. Once passed, the area will now become independent, but military presence will stay in the area for a maximum of 1 year. The new state can not attack Caddia, and vice versa.
Citizens are people (or animals) who live in Caddia. Citizens will get a say in elections. They will also be able to run for positions like Head of the Ministry of Labor. Citizens have complete civil rights. It is illegal for the government to discriminate anybody for any reason. If a citizen feels like they’ve unfairly treated, they can tell the president about it.
The Caddian Armed Forces
The Caddian Armed Forces (CAF) will be the main protection of Caddia. There is no mandatory conscription, but certain government positions do require service time. All CAF members require 1 year of training. Ranks will be the same as the American system.
