Integrity. Friendship. Responsibility. Honour
These are the principles of Monos Archein. Every
member is afforded these, and every member is
expected to offer them in return. It is in accordance
with these founding principles that we do hereby
establish and ordain this Grand Code of Monos Archein.


The Grand Code of Monos Archein

Declaration One: Alliance Governance[]

This Charter grants Authority within Monos Archein to the Archein, the Triumvirate, and the Council of Ministers.

Article One: Executive Authority[]

The Archein is to be the absolute authority on all alliance matters. She (or he, should the case ever arise) may preside over any matter whether it be internal or external to the alliance.

The Triumvirate shall be the secondary executive authority. In the absence of the Archein, the Triumvirate may rule on all decisions by 2/3 majority consensus, with the exception of military matters. Matters pertaining to offensive military engagement, in the absence of the Archein, require the agreement of the Whole Triumvirate. Basic management decisions may be managed by the Archein, or the Triumvirate, but are otherwise delegated by this Constitution to the Council of Ministers.

Article Two: The Council of Ministers[]

The Council of Ministers shall be comprised of eight members chosen by processes, and endowed with authorities, responsibilities, and jurisdictions, as described below. All elected Ministers shall serve two-month terms, whereas appointed Ministers simply serve at the discretion of the Triumvirate.

The Minister of Defense: Appointed by and directly responsible to the Archein, this minister is charged with organizing, maintaining, and commanding the alliance military forces. Military matters may be decided upon by this officer, pending Triumvirate and Archein review. No other officer of government or military commander may order offensive military action (declarations of war) without the approval of this minister, the Whole Triumvirate, or the Archein.

The Minister of Finance: Elected by simple majority vote of the alliance, this minister is responsible for the economic well being of the member nations of the alliance. Aid chains, economic grant programs, etc. shall be under this position's authority.

The Minister of Justice: Elected by simple majority vote of the alliance membership, this minister is responsible for adopting, maintaining, and holding members accountable to the Monos Archein Legal Code.

The Minister of Internal Affairs: Elected by simple majority vote of the alliance, this minister is charged with duties associated with promoting activity within the alliance and communicating with the membership.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs: Appointed by two-thirds agreement of the Triumvirate, this minister is responsible for opening, improving, and maintaining relations with other alliances. Any established diplomatic corps shall be directly answerable to this minister.

The Minister of Recruitment: Elected by simple majority vote of the alliance, this minister will be charged with duties associated with brining in new members, recruitment corps, application reviews and verification, and approving membership applications.

The Minister of Education: Appointed by two-thirds agreement of the Triumvirate, duties associated with this position shall include the operation of any Mentoring Programs, assisting with the teachings of all Monos Archein founding documents to newer members, and administering exams to members in order to test their knowledge on subjects related to Monos Archein and membership therein.

The Minister of Trade: Elected by simple majority vote of the alliance, this officer of government shall be responsible for assisting members, particularly new ones, with trade policy and acquisition, and establishing trade circles/guilds. Other duties may be assigned by the Triumvirate in pursuance of the above-stated duties.

Article Three: Advisors to the Government[]

Herein, the Monos Archein government permits two appointed Advisors. These two Advisors, appointed by consent the whole Triumvirate and the Archein, shall function in solely advisory roles and shall not wield actual power or authority except when specifically granted by the whole Triumvirate and/or Archein. No such granted authority shall be in excess of or supersede that which is already granted to an established Minister.

These Advisors may be granted access to the Ministers' Council Chambers, and, should the need arise, may be granted (but under no circumstance do they absolutely need) access to the Triumvirate Table.

There is no condition under which the executive powers will be compelled or otherwise required to appoint Advisors. These positions may be used continuously, temporarily, or never, at the complete discretion of the Triumvirate and/or Archein.

Any Advisors shall serve at the discretion of the whole Triumvirate and Archein, and shall be dismissed if they loose the confidence of even a single Triumvir or that of the Archein.

Article Four: Overrule Procedure[]

Any decision made by a Minister may be overruled by two-thirds agreement, or the Archein. In the cases of Military actions, the Whole Triumvirate must be in agreement to overrule the Minister of Defense, however the Archein may do so at her (his) discretion without regard to process.

Article Five: Impeachment, Unexpected Vacancies, and Duplication[]

Triumvirate Vacancies: In the event of a single unexpectedly vacant Triumvirate position, the remaining two Triumvirates will choose a replacement. In the event of the Archein's resignation, one of the remaining Triumvirates may take the position, after which the Ministry council shall vote to replace the open triumvir position. In the event of two vacancies the Ministry Council shall vote to replace each position individually.

In the event of complete vacancy of the Triumvirate, the Archein shall make an emergency appointment to fill all three Triumvir positions at once. Archein Impeachment: Under such extreme conditions that should warrant the Impeachment of the Archein, unanimous agreement of all standing government officials must be achieved.

Archein Vacancy: The Archein serves for life, but in the event of the Archein stepping down or being otherwise terminated, only a Triumvir may take the position, and may only do so with the consent of the Whole Triumvirate. In cases of a Triumvir becoming Archein, the Archein and remaining two Triumvirs shall decide on the replacement Triumvir.

Triumvir Impeachment: Unanimous agreement of the Council of Ministers and two members of the Triumvirate successfully removes a member of the Triumvirate from office. This agreement may be requested (and persuasive measures offered) by the Archein, but the Archein does not get a direct vote on the matter. The remaining government shall then follow the procedure outlined to fill vacancies.

Ministry Vacancies and Archein's Discretion: If at any time should a Minister choose to leave his position, the Triumvirate (or Archein, in the case of the Minister of Defense) is expected to appoint a replacement (by two-thirds agreement) within fourteen (14) days. There may be occasions during which no proven candidate is available for certain critical tasks, and at such times, the Triumvirate may petition the Archein to extend this time period indefinitely. In the cases of elected positions, the Triumvirate may either appoint for the remainder of the current term or offer a special election, at their discretion.

Ministry Impeachment: Unanimous agreement of the Triumvirate required to remove the Minister of Justice. Two-thirds agreement of the Triumvirate, or the Archein’s discretion in the case of the Minister of Defense, to remove any other minister. The remaining government shall then follow the procedure outlined to fill vacancies. Triumvirate Discretion: There will be occasions during which no proven candidate is available for certain critical tasks. Appointed Ministry positions may be left vacant at the discretion of the Triumvirate with permission from Archein. During such times, the Triumvirate will be responsible for performing those duties.

<b?Duplicate Position Holding For the sake of clarity, no single member shall campaign for, or hold office within more than a single Ministry position at any given time under any condition, regardless of whether that position be elected or appointed.

Declaration Two: Conditions of International Conflict and Matters of Foreign Affairs[]

To promote positive relations with other alliances, we shall maintain embassies and encourage diplomats to visit. In order for a treaty to be ratified it must have the signature of the Archein and either 2 Triumvirs and the Minister of Foreign Affairs OR the Whole Triumvirate. While Monos Archein is an alliance of peaceful intention, times come when, to protect the sovereignty of each nation, and the alliance as a whole, it is necessary; perhaps even desirable, to engage one's enemies.

Military actions considered to be of an aggressive or pre-emptive nature can only be approved by one of the Archein or the Minister of Defense. This includes, but is not limited to declarations of war and spy operations. Failure to obtain proper authorization for such actions may be cause for expulsion from the alliance.

Declaration Three: The Monos Archein Legal Code[]

The Alliance will establish and maintain a body of laws by which all member conduct shall be governed. No member shall ever be considered to be above this Monos Archein Legal Code. The minister of Justice will oversee the administration of this code, and may be petitioned by any member state to change, add to, or remove from it. Such modifications to the Monos Archein Legal Code shall require 2/3 consent of the Triumvirate as well of that of the Minister of Justice.

Declaration Four: Membership and Applicants[]

Article One: Basic Legal Application Process[]

Nation-states desiring membership in Monos Archein are required to file an application stating the following to be considered: Nation Name: Nation Link: Previous Alliances (we reserve the right to check references): Recruiter (if applicable): Additional information may be required by the Minister of Recruitment, as dictated by policy statements adopted by that ministry or the Triumvirates. Prospective members should read policies carefully prior to application submission.

Article Two: Members[]

Members, regardless of any government position held, must conduct themselves in a manner that is respectful and responsible, whether communicating on IRC, another alliance offsite forum, or the Open World Forum. Members are expected to remain active on this forum and to keep abreast of changes and news in the alliance. Members of Monos Archein are required to vote for the alliance’s chosen Team Senate candidate. Any member choosing to terminate membership in Monos Archein must privately message a member of government prior to departure.

Article Three: Monos Archein Citizenry[]

In order to increase the general alliance-wide literacy and awareness of the Grand Code of Monos Archein, the Monos Archein Legal Code, and any other significant alliance documents, the following Citizenship Amendment is to be enforced:

Article One: Benefits to be reserved for Citizens Nations of Monos Archein[]

The following benefits and activities shall be reserved to the Citizen Nations of Monos Archein: Government aid programs considered by the Ministry Council and Triumvirate to be non-essential. (Certain early "construction aid" programs may be exempt) Voting privileges and the ability to run for elected office. Military training operations, should they be permitted.

Article Two: Procedure to become a Citizen Nation of Monos Archein[]

Citizenship is granted to members that have passed a Citizenship Exam administered via private-message to the Minister of Education, an authorized deputy of the Minister of Education, or a Triumvir.

Such examination may be administered as many times as required to pass, but test-takers must wait at least 48 hours in between instances. Exam questions may differ between testing instances. When presented the exam, test-takers are expected to return the completed form to the test-giver within 24 hours.

Test-takers are expected to respond to the examination by memory and in their own words. Obvious copy-paste plagiarism shall invalidate the exam.

Article Three: Exemptions[]

Exemptions may be given to any member under any condition by consent of the Archein.

By virtue of having written a significant portion of the Grand Code, as well as this and the previous Amendments, Triumvir Hickersonia is granted exception to this examination.

Monos Archein Citizenship held by any member at the time of this Constitution's ratification shall be maintained.

Article Four: Rights for All Members[]

No member nation, whether Citizen or not, shall ever be barred the right to mutual defense under this Grand Code of Monos Archein, nor any financial benefit associated with meeting that goal.

Ratification of and Making Amendments to this Charter[]

Initial Ratification of this Charter occurs once the three Triumvirs and Archein have signed.

Once ratified, any Minister (elected or otherwise) that does not consent to ratify may be removed from office and replaced for the duration of his or her term by the Archein. All Ministers in office at the time of ratification shall complete his or her term otherwise. Changes to this Constitution can be made by drafting changes and presenting them to the Triumvirate and the Ministers Council. In order for changes to occur it must have two-thirds consent of the Triumvirate, two-thirds consent from the Ministers Council, and the approval of the Archein.
