The Mafia,founded 5/30/07 by Emperor Marxus IV,is a predominantly black team alliance. In its early days the Mafia showed great potential by soaring to over 100k nation strength with only 10 nations on its founding day. With the help of Knight999 of the Sarmatian Empire, Marxus managed to gain many friends for the Mafia. The early Mafia government was made up of mostly former members of Marxus's past alliances,The Trade Federation and ACID. It was because of this that an effective and streamlined hierarchy was put in place. The Mafia continued to grow in membership numbers and total alliance strength. The addition of Al_Capone of Chicago was key in the success the Mafia experienced.
Government Organization Edit
The Mafia is ruled by the Cappo de Cappos (The Don). The Don has veto power when ever he wishes to wield it and is responsible for the family's decision making. The current Don is The former Internal Consigliere Serberus. Even though the Don can veto any decision, Serberus has not done so as he tries to allow decisions to be made democratically.
The Legislative body of the Mafia consists of The Don's appointed Ministers and a Commission that is elected by the family. The Ministers run their specific offices to keep the Mafia functioning. Offices include Foreign Affairs, Internal Affairs, Economics, Education, Recruitment, and Defense. Each minister may appoint soldiers or Made Men to help in their officers, either as Deputy Ministers or a ministry worker (i.e. an ambassador for the MoFA).
The Commission makes up the democratically portion of the Mafia government. Elections take place every 5 weeks and there are 5 positions available at each election (subject to change based on alliance growth). Candidates are nominated by their piers. During an election a voter gets to vote for three candidate. The top 5 candidates receive a seat.
Made Men are not members of the Legislature. They are respected and important members and most likely officers in the Mafia's military wing. The process to become a Made Man is unclear, but most Made Men are very active, senior members. If you want to get Made, you will need to prove your self.
