History

Background

The first president, Mscoree was elected on January 8, 2014. The presidency continued, split between the Progressive Party and the Communist Party for the next nine months. The election of UglyTurtle on September 28, 2014 marked the end of the presidency. Upon his election in September 28, 2014, president election UglyTurtle proposed an abolishment of the government's democratic assemblies and presidential terms. Passing on September 30, so began the "Testudian Dictatorship", during which no new elections took place. On October 20, 2015 UglyTurtle was deposed from his position as president and dictator. Mscoree, as creator of the government, was declared the government's first monarch, and a parliamentary, constitutional monarchy was formed.

Interim Government

Following the deposition of UglyTurtle an interim government was formed of primarily democratic and republican senators. The first political party to form, the Democratic Party, accounted for the majority of the interim government's seats. The first election was scheduled for October 23, 2015, at 8 PM EST, at which time Harvenard2 of the Democrats would run for the position of prime minister. At which point, having fulfilled its goal of restoring elections, the Democratic Party would be disbanded.

The Social Democratic Union Party, founded in 2015, is a political party advocating for the promotion of radical and social reform, wiki wide.

The Social Democratic Union Party subscribes to the idea of "Radism", named for its founder Ratcolor, which is comprised of three major tenets: social justice, economic independence, and political sovereignty. Radism rejects the extremes of both capitalism and communism, and also aims to mediate tensions between the classes of society, with the state responsible for negotiating compromise in conflicts between managers and workers.

Our policies:

  • Weakening or abolition of wiki-specific bans and their respective legislation, for incidents of non-harmful sockpuppeting.
  • Increased enfranchisement; abolition of voting restrictions, such as the edit count, for government elections.
  • Coexistence and assimilation of "mappers"; an end to wiki raids via diplomatic solutions.
  • Lessening of punishments for crimes outside the wiki, including crimes committed on other wikis or social media.
  • Creation of clear rules for chat and other aspects of the rules, including bans and their applicable punishment.

THE NATIONAL SOCIALIST PEOPLE'S FRONT CALLS YOU TO ARMS!

OUR FRAGILE GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN INFECTED BY THOSE WHO WISH TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE PEOPLE.

THEY SAY IT IS A WAR OF THE LEFT AND RIGHT. BUT TRULY, IT IS A WAR BETWEEN US ON THE BOTTOM AND THOSE ON THE TOP.

WE MUST BAND TOGETHER FOR THE PRESERVATION OF OUR CULTURE, WAYS OF LIFE, AND SOCIAL LIBERTIES, IF WE WISH TO COMBAT THOSE WHO HAVE TAKEN OVER THOSE OF LESSER CONVICTION WITH THEIR LIES.


What exactly is the "Saturn Swine"? It is an infection that has condemned lesser parties to their downfall. The Saturn Swine is a hypocritical and antagonistic ideology that preys on the weak and small of edit count, the new user, the mapper. It is the Saturn Swine that condemned our wiki to the elitist ruin it is today. You there, user, worker of the wiki, stand up for your rights and fight the swine!




Policies
  • The mappers are not intrinsically evil, merely it is the poor content that is the problem. We are not against mappers, we are against poor content. The flaw of the inferior nazi party is the false dichotomy of mapper and nazi, when in reality both are mostly shit; it should be the hard working user versus both of them.
  • The hard working user, regardless of edit count, is pure at heart. It is their dedication that creates the wiki, not the elitist upper class that rarely contributes.
  • Other parties may attempt to limit the enfranchisement of voting to silence the workers and the masses, but we promote increased enfranchisement to prevent minority rule.
  • The best defense against raids is a strong militaristic offense. We cannot expect to come to terms with a hostile organization if we are practically subjugated by them in the name of peace.

Your into some weird shit m8- Dream.

Legislation

Passed

Proposed

Executive Power Act

The following act is proposed for the purpose of defining the powers of the prime minister, reinstating the previously approved "Vacancy Act", and to set guidelines for future holders of the office.

Article 1: Positions of the Executive Branch.

  • Section 1: The Deputy Prime Minister shall be established as the second in command to the Prime Minister, and the Prime Minister of the Senate.
  • Section 2: During the vice Prime Minister's absence, the Prime Minister pro tempore is empowered to preside over Senate sessions.

Article 2: On the subject of the Vacancy Act.

  • Section 1: When a Prime Minister is removed from office, dies, resigns, or is otherwise unable to discharge the powers of the executive branch, the Vice Prime Minister will immediately become Prime Minister.
  • Section 2: Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of Vice Prime Minister, the Prime Minister shall be allowed to nominate a successor who becomes Vice Prime Minister if confirmed by a majority vote of the senate.
  • Section 3: When the Prime Minister transmits a written declaration to the Prime Minister pro tempore of the Senate, stating that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of the executive branch, and until the Prime Minister sends another written declaration to the aforementioned officers declaring himself able to resume discharging those powers and duties, the Vice Prime Minister serves as Acting Prime Minister.
  • Section 4: The Vice Prime Minister is allowed, together with a majority of either "the principal officers of the executive departments" (i.e., the Cabinet) or of "such other body as Congress may by law provide", to declare the Prime Minister disabled by submitting a written declaration to the Prime Minister pro tempore of the Senate. As with Section 3, the Vice Prime Minister would become Acting Prime Minister.
  • Section 5: If the Prime Minister's incapacitation prevents him from discharging the duties of his office and he does not provide a written declaration to that effect, the Prime Minister may resume exercising the executive duties by sending a written declaration to the Prime Minister pro tempore. Should the Vice Prime Minister remain unsatisfied with the Prime Minister's condition, he may within four days of the Prime Minister's declaration submit another declaration that the Prime Minister is incapacitated. The Congress must then assemble within 48 hours if not in session. Within 21 days of assembling or of receiving the second declaration by the Vice Prime Minister, a two-thirds vote of the senate is required to affirm the Prime Minister as unfit. Upon this finding by the Congress, Section 4 states that the Vice Prime Minister would "continue" to be Acting Prime Minister. Should the Congress resolve the issue in favor of the Prime Minister, or if the Congress makes no decision within the 21 days allotted, then the Prime Minister would "resume" discharging all of the powers and duties of his office. The use of the words "continue" and "resume" imply that the Vice Prime Minister remains Acting Prime Minister while Congress deliberates. However, the Prime Minister may again submit a written declaration of recovery to the Prime Minister pro tempore. That declaration could be responded to by the Acting Prime Minister in the same way as stated earlier. The allotted 21-day Congressional procedure would start again.

Article 3: Powers of the Executive Branch.

  • Section 1:Within the executive branch itself, the Prime Minister (if in office) has broad powers to manage national affairs and the workings of the federal government. The Prime Minister can issue rules, regulations, and instructions called executive orders, which have the binding force of law upon federal agencies but do not require congressional approval.
  • Section 2:The Prime Minister shall be responsible for preparing the United States' budget, although Congress must approve it.
  • Section 3:The Prime Minister may impound funds as he saw fit.
  • Section 4:The Prime Minister shall act as Commander in Chief of the armed forces, and may call into federal service the state units of the National Guard.
  • Section 5:In times of war or national emergency, the Congress may grant the Prime Minister even broader powers to manage the national economy and protect the security of the Wiki.
  • Section 6:The Prime Minister may appoint a cabinet, which may be reshuffled at any time.

Disscussion

  • (I added a disscussion section, if you don't mind.) Overall I agree with this consitiution, but there's only one thing I don't completely agree on with it. Saturn120 14:52, October 25, 2015 (UTC)
  • I dislike that the senate is able to impeach people from office. It should be that we vote on if the current leader should be impeached or not. Overall I agree with this constitution. - Scarlet Outlaw 
Article I, Section IX: Any user, regardless of status, edits, or experience on the wiki may be a senator if voted so
  • The Nazi Party thinks that only users that have been here for a specific amount of time and a some editing experience should become a senator. A period of three months and two-hundred edits at the minnium should be set just to not allow us to vote anyvody into an office. (In an IRL scienario, It would allow us to be electing ANYBODY into the office, Illegal Immigrants, Children, etc.) Saturn120 13:32, October 25, 2015 (UTC)
  • Despite our differences, I agree with Saturn, although I think stricter requirements are needed.~Tao64
  • I am fine with adding very minimal requirements to be a senator, and for President, if the other voters agree. However, I would like to keep the Senate with the ability to impeach others. ~Vatonica
  • How many senators should there be? On the one hand, 50 is a nice and reasonable number. On the other hand, it may be a good idea to have a low number of seats that could actually all be filled by users, like around 16. Thoughts? ~Vatonica
