6.1 The Senate is the highest legistlative organ of the alliance, and consists of four elected Senators and the Chancellor of the Finnish Cooperation Organization. The term of a Senator lasts two months as per the elective process determined in this charter.

6.2 The primary function of the Senate is to vote on the alliance's internal policies and the acceptance of various treaties. In the event that the alliance's existence is at risk, the Council of Commissars takes priority over the Senate in issues regarding the foreign policy, such as the acceptance of surrender terms and the activation of treaties.

6.3 Any Senator or any official working for a Senator may be expelled from their position by a referendum launched by a popular initiative, which requires the signatures of at least five members of the alliance to activate.

Breaking these rules without a specific order from an officer is forbidden.

7.2 If someone is to declare war on a member of the Finnish Cooperation Organization, the attacker declares war on all of the members of the alliance.

8§ Changing the Constitution[]

8.1 The Constitution may be changed by the Senate, or by a universal referendum started by a popular initiative. A minimum of ten per cent (10%) of the membership of the alliance must sign the initiative in order for the referendum to be launched.

9.1 If the government of the alliance has decided to choose to appoint a member as a Commissar or any other official through elections, the elections must be held according to this very article. The nomination process and election both last three days. In the event that every candidate receives less than half of the total votes, a second round between the two most popular candidates will be held.
