We, the nations of Planet Bob, Exercise our allegiance to one another under one structure of government, the Trilateral Commission.
Article I: Initiation
Any nation pledging an oath to the Trilateral Commission on the Trilateral Commission forum requesting membership will be initiated, provided said nation does not present a security risk to the Trilateral Commission, or belong to any other alliances. Our oath consists of the following:
- Nation Name
- Nation Ruler
- Nation Team
- Nation Strength
- Previous Alliances
Article II: Structure
1. Although voting is not required, all members of the Trilateral Commission are encouraged to vote.
2. The Trilateral Commission will consist of a Supreme Council(The Chairman, The CEO, & Two The Representatives), a Senate (The Senate High Lord & The Senate Lords) a Grand Council (The Minister of Internal Affairs, The Minister of External Affairs, The Minister of Recruitment & The Minister of Defense), and a General Council(Any Government Officials & Ambassadors).
2:A. Supreme Council
2:A.I The Chairman
The Chairman is the leader of the alliance and Head of the Supreme Council. The Chairman will command the Trilateral Commission Government, maintain veto power over it, and has the ability to block the election of specific government members if he or she sees fit to do so. The Chairman is empowered to appoint a representative to conduct affairs in his/her absence and a representative to represent his/her interests in the government and abroad. The CEO will be the successor to the Chairman. The Chairman serves for life or until resignation. In the event the Chairman resigns he or she will take up the title of Senate Lord and serve as council to all levels of the government. The current CEO will then be nominated as Chairman. If the current CEO, or both of the representatives are unable or unavailable to become Chairman, a Senate Lord can be recalled from retirement by the government to re-assume the position of Chairman. In such circumstances the government must be in majority agreement, and must have the approval of the current Chairman, the CEO and all current representatives. If the Chairman is unavailable, approval is required from the CEO and Current representatives. If the CEO and Current Representatives are also unavailable, a simple majority vote from the government would be necessary.
2:A.I.I The Trilateral Security Act
The Chairman has the ability to remove anyone he/she sees as a threat to the alliance. In the circumstance the decision is under scrutiny, a vote from the government may be requested, whereby a 4/5ths vote of the Supreme Council and Senate is required to overturn the decision made by the Chairman. The Chairman can be removed from office with a 4/5ths vote of the Supreme Council and Senate.
2:A.II The CEO
Being one level underneath the Chairman, the CEO or Chief Executive Officer is the highest ranking officer, administrator, or executive, in charge of total co-management of the alliance. The only difference between the Chairman and the CEO is that the article in the Charter, pertaining to the CEO, may be revised if a member of the Supreme Council submits a motion of revision. He/She can make all final decisions for the exception of declaration of inter-alliance war & termination of the alliance. The CEO serves for life or until resignation. In the event the CEO resigns he or she will take up the title of Senate Lord and serve as council to all levels of the Trilateral Commission. Also,the First Representative will take over the CEO's vacancy. If the First Representative does not want the CEO position,then she/he may choose a suitable member and so will the Chairman. The two candidates (if different), will be put up for election to the entire membership of the Trilateral Commission.
2:A.III The Representatives
The Chairman may appoint any member of the Body Republic to be a representative, who will serve purely as an advisory Council to both the Leader and the government. There are a total of two representatives. In the absence of the Chairman and the CEO, they take on his/her role until his/her return. However, they do not have the power to appoint or dismiss, unless a member requests removal from the alliance, or an Initiate has submitted an application and fulfilled the initiation process, or unless consent is given by the Chairman or the CEO. If there are two representatives present, the first representative fills in for the chairman and the CEO; and the second representative fills in for the first representative. Any representative serves for life, or until one months inactivity. Under these circumstances, two days are given for compliance. If there is no compliance, then the representative is replaced.
2:B.I The Senate High Lord
The Senate High Lord serves as the Head of the Senate. The Senate High Lord Acts As The 5th Voice In The Supreme Council and represents the general interests of the Senate.

The Senate Lord serves until resignation or is removed from office by a 3/4ths vote of the Supreme Council alone. If The Senate High Lord becomes inactive for more than twenty days He/she is removed from office and an election is held once again.
2:B.II Senate Lords

Any Long-Standing Member of the Trilateral Commission may become a Lord at the request of the Chairman, and said member must be accepted by 3/4 of the Supreme Council. A Senate Lord can be removed from office by a majority vote of the Senate or A 4/5ths vote of the Supreme Council. The Senate Lords serve as advisers to the Supreme Council; and also ensure that the balance of power between the General, Grand, and Supreme Councils is kept, and that the word of the charter is maintained. The Senate Lords are also in charge of ensuring that any government member that abuses their position or powers for personal gain or to cause harm to the Trilateral Commission is dealt with swiftly via a formal review of that government member, the punishments can range from removal from office to barring the convicted from holding a government office if the majority of the senate vote is in favor of punishment.
