The Code Edit
I. Preamble Edit
Imperial Charter of The Mandalorian Empire
The Mandalorian Empire is an alliance based on unity, respect and honor and we strive to achieve these attributes in everything we do. All members are to abide by the laws set forth by the Mandalore and is enforced by the Death Watch Council. In these laws shall you find honor and pride among other traits that define us as an alliance of great expectations. We are a family formed of nations that think outside the box and wish to rise to a level of Cyber Nirvana. We view all members as fellow brothers and sisters united under the same flag and color, rightfully so we will protect, aid, and do everything in our power to help our brothers and sisters grow and prosper. THE LAW IS OUR CODE AND WE LIVE AND DIE BY IT!!
“Mandalorians don't make threats. We make promises”
II. Culture Edit
The Mandalorians, being a culture of warriors, are ranked based upon their combat experience and skill. Higher ranking society members train the lower ones
The Mandalorians (called Mando'ade in Mando’a, meaning "children of Mandalore") are a warlike, nomadic group of clan-based people consisting of members from multiple backgrounds. Often, they served as mercenaries. Our culture revolves around that of battle and war being a source of honor and pride in our community. The leader of the Mandalorians serves under title of “Mandalore”
“You can't rule Mandalorians. You just make sensible suggestions they want to follow. And since when have Mandalorians needed to be told what makes sense?"
III. Founding principles Edit
Everyone dies. It's the final and only lasting justice. Evil exists; it is intelligence in the service of entropy. When the side of a mountain slides down to kill a village, this is not evil, for evil requires intent. Should a sentient being cause that landslide, there is evil; and requires Justice as a consequence, so that civilization can exist. There is no greater good than Justice, and only if law serves Justice is it good law. It is said correctly that law exists not for the Just but for the unjust, for the Just carry the law in their hearts, and do not need to call it from afar. I bow to no one and I give service only for cause.
United as one bonded together under the same flag for reasons that are selfless. Unity is not simply a word to which we live by. For we are brothers united under our Mandalores. We shall honor and respect each other in all things we do and say. To fight one of us is to fight us all as we are whole, a flock. Unity is our strength and we are a family of one.
Respect is simple term for which we live by. All members should apply it to everything they do. From the CN forums to our dealings with others around us. Be polite and handle yourself in a respectful manor for your actions reflect us as a whole.
Verd ori'shya beskar'gam (A warrior is more than his armor.) Honor is a virtue that while many may lack we shall not. Honor yourself, honor your Mandalores and honor those around you. Honor stims from justice and there is not greater deed then to be just. Honor breeds success and from success shall we show our valor. Death before dishonor!
We as Mandalorians believe honor can be found with the mist of battle. Should a time occur when we face an overwhelming force we shall be prepared and die for our beliefs. From the bloodshed we will emerge as a great people of the blade united as one! The way of the warrior is a path that while we seek we intend to do so in a just and honorable way. Our code is outlined before us, we shall follow it in battle and it will define who we are as a empire.

IV. Leadership Edit
Is the official voice of the alliance Responsible for the Day-to-Day operations of The Mandalorian Empire Is responsible for being up-to-date on current CN politics Responsible for the general welfare of the alliance Supreme Power within the Alliance
The Mandalores are the Monarchy and Rightful leaders of the alliance. Their term will remain until the day they chose to step down. If for some reason one of our beloved Mandalores steps down The next highest ranking person shall become a Mandalore. The mandalores are three in number and are the figureheads for the three tribes that make up the Mandalorians.
Defining any power not specifically decided as Executive Power, as well as any predetermined right or privilege the Mandalores has, they may use the right of Executive Power when a grave decision is made. Executive Power authorizes the reigning Mandalores to do as he/she wishes, so long as what he/she wishes are within best interests of the alliance.
All Mandalores are equal in power. In situations where one does not see eye to eye with the other two Mandalores, they may issue a veto order, in which the situation will be sent to the Death Watch council. There it will be handled by the voting process.
Death Watch Council:
The Council is the voting power of The Mandalorian Empire. They carry weight as does the Mandalores as a whole and are needed in some high level decisions in order for them to occur. For New laws, expulsions from the alliance and declarations of war the council must vote with the majority in favor of that being proposed.
The Council is made up of 6 members and a Council Leader. Seven Members in total sit on the Death Watch Council.
The Council leader is an elected position of great importance. The leader is selected by the Council itself and is subject to change should the council choose to appoint a new leader. The leader of the council serves as the figurehead of the council. His name is required on all bills that pass through the council. It is the duty of the Council leader to announce all matters coming out of the Council. As the leader of the council he is the official speaker and voice of the council.
The Council reserves the authority to challenge the Mandalores. This challenge is known as an Appeal. If an official Appeal is made to the reigning mandalore, it must be notarized by at least one-half of the Council. If it is not, it is invalid. If it is, the Appeal is legitimized, and goes on to the Mandalores. The Mandalores will then have a 3-day time-span to either give in to the Appeal, compromise with the Council, or refute the Appeal. If the Appeal is refuted, it then carries on to an alliance-level vote. After the polls close on the end of the 3rd day of voting, the results are revealed publicly. If the Appeal lost by a vote of majority, it is cast out. If it has won by majority vote, it is legitimate, and must be adhered to completely or to the point of the Councils choosing. The Council, however, must remember that Appealing is an arduous process, to be reserved only for when the alliance is certainly headed in the wrong direction.
Council Members may hold other positions within the alliance such as Minister positions. Council members may only hold one Minister Duty if they so chose to do so and are appointed.
The Council is appointed to office by the Mandalores.
