The government of the Aqua Defense Initiative is described by some as complicated yet abrasive. It can seem complex but as any democracy shows, no government is perfect. The government of the Aqua Defense Initiative is currently run by two branches of government: one is the Sentinels, which are more of the Executive Branch of Government; while the legislative functions are given to what are called Guardians. There is currently no Judicial form of government in the Aqua Defense Initiative; most conceivably it is thought to be that both the Executive and Legislative Bodies of the government work together to work out the Judicial problems of the government as given to them per the charter.

Sentinels of the Aqua Defense InitiativeEdit

See also: Hall of Sentinels

All Sentinels of the Aqua Defense Initiative hold life tenure as a Sentinel during good behavior, unless they retire, resign or are impeached from office. All Sentinels are voted into their positions by the Hall of Sentinels, recognizing their dedication to the government as per being given the status of Sentinel. Not all Sentinels will always hold an office in the government - Lords are required to be Sentinels and at this time there are seven Sentinels in the Aqua Defense Initiative.

See also: Council of Guardians

The Council of Guardians of the Aqua Defense Initiative is the leading legislative body of the government. It proposes and brings matters into law for the government. It is in the responsibility of the Guardians to protect those laws and enforce them in cooperation with the Sentinels. The Guardians are elected to their offices by the people of the Aqua Defense Initiative - Sentinels, Guardians and Members alike. The Guardians elect a Champion Guardian, who acts as a de facto leader of the Council of Guardians. As long as the Champion remains a Guardian, he or she will serve permanent tenure as Champion Guardian until he or she is elected out of office, retires, resigns or is impeached. The Guardians at the current time have a full count of nine in their Council. There are three Guardians each in three separate Classes. A Guardian's Class determines the time at which his or her position goes up for election.
