The Constitution of the Vengarnen Enclave[]

We the majority of the Vengarnen Enclave, in order to form a more unified and established coalition, secure wealth of the people, maintain security and justice, ensure common defense of all, and naturally process through domestic and political issues, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Vengarnen Enclave.

Article I [Visguard][]

Section 1 – Visguard Lighter Dictator and ultimate ruler of the Enclave, this Visguard has few limitations but must remain the good faith of the War Ministry, the Enclave Special Operations Division, and the People. In his position of power he must maintain the current status of the Enclave and progress it either domestically or externally. He is however at the risk of impeachment at all times so politically he must serve fair, and well.

Section 2 – Process and Institution of new Visguard When the serving Visguard no longer wishes to maintain rule over the nation due to personal, political, and other issues, he must pronounce the acting Viscount the new Visguard of the Vengarnen Enclave. However if the Viscount seat is vacant then the Visguard is immediately granted and required by the state to select a new Visguard at free will. If the ruling Visguard immediately resigns, falls ill, death, etc. then the Viscount will take his place. If in this time the Viscount's seat is vacant, then the Imperial Ministry will select a Visguard of its own through at least a 2/3’s vote. Unlike the Visguard, they may only select an individual to act as Visguard either from their own Ministry, or the Grand Assembly.

Section 3 – Visguard Powers and Limitations Acting as an empowered Emperor on many accounts, he is with few restrictions. But with the few limitations in place act to restrain the Visguard from issuing acts that would otherwise lead to total collapse. All pieces of legislative must be approved by the Visguard, without his permission and signed signature no new act can be passed. Aside from his hefty set of powers he faces great responsibilities and tremendous amounts of stress. At all times the War Ministry and the Enclave Special Operations Division must remain at his side. To add to it, he must keep the population content with his rule.

Section 3 – Martial Law In times of civil crises such as large scale riots, continued terrorist acts, and other domestic events, the Grand Aseembly may allow the permission to the acting Visguard to declare a state of martial law. During the time the House of Magistrates will no longer be able to conduct their yearly meetings unless formally granted directly by the Visguard. Members of the House of Magistrates will also be monitored by the Enclave Special Operations Division. All elections in this time will be put on hold for the duration of martial law and may be lifted by the Visguard at any time, or by a majority’s vote by the Grand Assembly.

In times of desperate war, the Visguard may declare a state of Martial Law at any time of his own choosing without permission from any branch. It acts much like the civil branch of Martial Law.

Section 4 – Resignation At any points of time may the acting Visguard resign from his position of office. Before he may announce his resignation though, he must approve and recognize his Viscount in becoming the new Visguard. If the Viscount seat is vacant he must select a new ruling Visguard, and if he declines to select one will be found on the criminal act of Grand Treason. Immediately he will be forwarded to the Government courts to be trailed, and during this duration the Ministry will select a new Visguard from either the Ministry itself, or the Grand Assembly by a 2/3’s vote.

Section 5 – Impeachment If found incapable of leading the Enclave any longer due to incompetence, illness, found Guilty on Grand Treason, and or no longer accepted by the House of Magistrates and the Grand Assembly, then both House and Assembly may initiate the process of impeachment. During this impeachment process both the House of Magistrates and the Grand Assembly must come together and vote in a 2/3’s majority to bring this vote to the public. If denied, the impeachment process will no longer continue. But if approved then the vote is brought to the general public for their vote. In this time Poll Establishments will be safeguarded by the Vengarnen Preservative League to safeguard it against fraud. If there is a 65% majority vote as approved by the people against the Visguard, he will be forced to resign.

Article II [Ministry][]

Section 1 – Ministry The Ministry is a collection of Ministers that work together to maintain the Vengarnen Enclave current status of wealth, security, and power. Below is a list of ministers. Each minister is suited with his or her own staff of directors that act as advisors to individual topics.

  • Ministry of Domestic Affairs

    • Director of Welfare Systems
    • Director of Business Management
  • Ministry of War
    • Director of Security
  • Ministry of Research
    • Director of Military Technology
  • Ministry of Education
    • Director of Culture

Ministers are granted the powers to rule their selective branch with few limitations. But at the end of each week they must forward a report of their actions. For any Minister to pass a new act, law, or bill in order to progress his/her selective field, the Visguard must accept.

Section 2 – Process of Institution Each Visguard is entitled to select new individuals to replace old acting Ministers, or fill a vacant seat with their own member in mind. Each Visguard must be careful when replacing a Minister from a previous Visguard as each replacement will be heavily watched by the House of Magistrates and Grand Assembly to ensure a spoil system isn't enacted either by fault or objective. They also have the ability to allow any Ministers from the previous Visguard to continue to serve.

Section 3 – Ministry Powers and Limitations In their time of rule, each Minister will be given a Council. This Council will reside with one Socialist, one Republican, one Democrat, and one Libertarian. Although this Council has no power, it is by obligation and law that each Minister listens to the Council before acting on a decision. This is to ensure an open mind and possibly to help usher in better ideas before proposing them to the acting Visguard. With the help of their Council and their own ideas and mind, they have the powers to manage their respective fields without worrying of a bureaucracy. They do require the permission from the Visguard to expand and progress their respective fields, and after each week are required to report on their work.

Section 4 - Resignation and Treason If a Minister no longer wishes to serve due to reasons of his or her own, then the Minister may freely take leave of office. The Minister in question must post his resignation two weeks ahead of time and must continue to serve for that period of time so a new Minister may be moved into place.

If suspected of treason, the Minister in question will be brought to Government courts to be trialed. If found guilty of Grand Assembly then the select Minister will be handled appropriately as according to his or her crime and no longer able to maintain his or her position and may no longer serve in the field of politics.

Upon election and approval from the people the victors will move in power, retain their power, or loose it.

Section 3 – Powers, limitations, and duty To help not only assist the Visguard with new ideas the Grand Assembly finds acceptable, but Senators also take up the duty to ensure the serving Visguard is in acceptable lines according to the Constitution. Although they may launch the process of impeachment in accordance with the House of Magistrates, they cannot force the Visguard in accepting any acts on their own. They also represent the People’s interest, as these are members of the Imperial Citizen grouping that are voted in by the majority’s vote. With the public’s interest at mind, they have the full right to purpose an amendment to the Constitution. If at least 1/3 the House of Magistrates accept, then the amendment is brought to the public’s vote where a 70% vote must rule in favor of the change.

Section 4 – Resignation and Treason If a Senator no longer wishes to serve due to reasons of his or her own, then the Senator may freely take leave of office.

If suspected of treason the Senator in question will be brought to Government courts to be trialed. If found guilty of Grand Treason then the select Senator will be handled appropriately as according to his or her crime and no longer able to maintain his or her position and may no longer serve in the field of politics.

Section 1 – House of Magistrates The House of Magistrates is a collection of Magistrates (Governors of cities) that manage their individual city. But at least three times a year they will be asked to come together with other Magistrates to discuss issues in the Enclave. Also with the help of the Grand Senate they can call to vote an impeachment of the Visguard, and assist the Grand Assembly in the amendment process. Aside from this they are at the mercy of the Ministers if approached directly, as well as the Visguard.

Section 2 – Elections and Institution Like the Grand Assembly, the House of Magistrates are elected into power by the common man and woman of their individual city. These magistrates are by all means Governors, but at least three times a year on scheduled dates, the House of Magistrates will meet to discuss important topics. If they are required, they can meet on other occasions to either discuss and or vote on vital topics. Upon the outcome of the election, the Lord will be moved into office immediately.

When a citizen reaches these three aspects, and if approved by the Ministry of Public Affairs, he is then considered true blood of the Enclave and thus obtains all voting rights, freedom of movement, freedom religion and other freedoms in which come to the Imperial Citizen. Citizens may actively vote for Magistrate, Senators, and on occasion pieces of legislative.

Section 2 – Grand Treason If a citizen or Imperial Citizen is suspected of selling or surrendering Enclave secrets to foreign countries or groups, has conducted operations in which to harm Government members, or other acts that are deemed treason by the Government they will be brought forth to a Government court to be trialed. Their punishment will suit the crime.

Article VI [Amendment Process][]

Section 1 – Amendment Process To maintain continued progression in the Vengarnen Enclave, and if the situation and time abides, then either Grand Assembly and or Visguard may purpose amendments to the Constitution of the Vengarnen Enclave. Upon proposal, both the House of Magistrate and the Grand Assembly must take a vote, and if 1/3 of the House of Magistrate and 2/3 of the Grand Assembly accepts, then the vote is carried down to the populace. At least 70% of the population must be in favor and if so the Visguard has no other choice but to accept the change. Immediately following this, the Vengarnen Enclave Constitution will change according to the purposed amendment.

Article VII [Legal Status of Constitution][]

Section 1 – Legal Status Each Article and Section must be followed by the ruling Government at all points of time.

Section 2 – Greater Glory and Common Good If the ruling Visguard finds the Enclave threatened, or finds its time for glorified expansion then he may call up to Section 2 of Article VII. In this time he may surpass any article and section of the Constitution on a single issue.
