Constitution

Preamble:

We, the Member States of the Territories of Juleokin, hereby establish these provisions of the Constitution as the absolute and supreme laws of the land.

Law 1:

A) The President is the leader of the Territorial Government and is also a Representative of their own Member State. The President holds power over the Executive Branch of the Territorial Government.

B) Ambassadors and those under the age of 18 may not be nominated for President of the Territories of Juleokin.

C) The role of President is either a lifetime appointment or until they die, retire or resign or are permanently incapacitated.

D) The President is nominated by and elected by the Governor’s of their respective Member State when 1/3 of the votes are reached. Governors of both Representative and Ambassador Member States may nominate a Presidential candidate, but only Governors of Representative Member States may elect the President.

Law 2:

A) Governors are the head of their executive branch and thus the leader of their respective Member States.

B) The Governor of their respective Member State is elected when a candidate receives 2/3 of the vote by their Representatives or Ambassadors. A Governor starts out as a Representative or Ambassador until they are nominated for Governor. A Representative or Ambassador may not nominate themselves. The nomination process is only the vote itself if a majority nominates the Representative or Ambassador as Governor.

C) Representative and Ambassador Governors may nominate a Representative as a candidate for President.

D) Only Representative Governors may actually elect the President.

E) Governors may not be nominated for President, unless a Head Governor is elected by a 1/3 vote in-place of a Governor, but is still a Representative (but without voting powers) and are thus directly accountable to both the Legislative Branch and Executive Branch. They may still bring a vote to the floor as a Governor does. But Head Governors are given a special role to be able to determine whether to Pass or Veto a law. If the Head Governor Vetos a law, it does not pass. In the event of a Veto, the Representatives or Ambassadors may overturn the Veto if at least one Member brings a Vote of Overturn to the floor. Once a Vote of Overturn is brought to the floor, at least 2/3 of the vote is required to overturn the Veto and thus the law shall then be passed if 2/3 of the vote is Yes.

Law 3:

A) Representatives and Ambassadors are the law makers of their respective Member States and are thus leaders of the Legislative Branch.

B) The Legislative Branch holds limited power over the Territorial Government.

C) For laws to pass in a Member State, all votes must be made unanimously by voting Yes! If any vote is No, the law does not pass.

D) Any legislator of their respective Member State may propose a new law when warranted by this Constitution. A vote by each Member is either Yes or No.

E) For a law to be voted on, the Governor must decide whether to bring the law up for a vote.

F) Laws do not need to be passed by the Governor, as the law passes if the unanimous decision is Yes when a unanimous vote is reached.

G) Ambassadors are solely responsible for the Judicial Branch. The Judicial branch of the government is the only branch that holds absolute jurisdiction over both the Territorial Government and their respective Member States (If they are an Ambassador Member State).

H) For a judgement to be made by the Ambassadors, 1/3 of the vote must be reached.

Law 4:

1) The Constitution may only be changed when enough Representatives and Ambassadors come together (1/3 of the Territories’ Member States) to pass a Proposal with a Yes vote, which the Governors of those Member States then vote whether to submit the Proposal to the President, which must reach 2/3 of a vote of Yes no matter if they are from Representative or Ambassador Member States. This is called a Vote of Ratification.

2) To bring a Vote of Ratification to the floor, the Governors who cast the 2/3 votes must submit their proposed changes to the President (who will then choose whether or not to Pass or Veto the proposed changes).

3) If the proposed changes are Vetoed, the Vote of Ratification may be overturned if 1/3 of a vote is reached by all Governors who vote to Pass the proposed changes.

4) Any Legislator may bring the Vote of Ratification to the floor and 1/3 of the vote must be reached as the Vote of Ratification begins as soon as the proposed changes are brought to the floor.

Law 5:

I) All Member States have the choice to leave the Territories of Juleokin with a unanimous vote.

II) All participation in government affairs is voluntary as nobody is forced to vote or propose laws.

III) All nominations and elections for President or any other Territorial Government affairs must be handled in the chat room below!

IV) Member States may choose to proudly display a custom-made sign or yard-sign (when permitted) with the name of their territory and any other message they want (as long as sign content is lawful in your country of residence or administrative region of that country of residence).

V) The capitol of the Territorial Government is Juleokin City (the chat room with the header: Juleokin City [The Capitol]).
