Yeah, we should probably de-passwordify the region, it's hurting us way more than it's helping us as a region. In addition to that (even if you guys don't think so) I'm active enough to prevent raids so I don't think that would even be an issue.

Also the rest of the government pleaseeeee don't leave I waited a long time for this region to become active like it was a couple of months ago.

If you are scared of raiding, why not remove the regional password, remove all authorities from the delegate position except for WA powers, and then create a new position that is the head of government. That is what we did.

Yeah it should be.
Honestly I'm not sure why we implemented it in the first place.

The Republic of Tocan Isle

I am suggesting that we make a new constitution, not one that's drastically different, but I think we need some notable changes in governance, the main thing that comes to mind is the role of the WA Delegate, which is currently codified in a flawed manner imo. If it's ok, i'll start a draft of the new constitution. If anyone wants to work on it with me telegram me.

The Republic of Tocan Isle

Preamble
The nations of SolarFlare, with the goals of upholding the region's founding values of peace, democracy, neutrality, and rule of law establish and ordain this Constitution as the supreme law of SolarFlare.

ARTICLE 1. Rules
All residents of SolarFlare must:
1. Not discriminate against or target others based on their race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.
2. Not force one's political views onto others. Civil, respectful discussion is encouraged, but forcing is not.
3. Not espouse fascist or any other intolerant or hateful political views.
4. Not advertise for a region or campaign in the RMB or Discord.
5. Keep debate respectful.
6. Not impersonate staff (or any other nation) of this region.
7. Not spam. Spamming is the repeated sending of the same message, and it will not be tolerated.
8. Not voice support for or perpetrate sexual harassment or hateful discrimination.
9. Cooperate with other SolarFlare nations to serve the common good of the region.
10. Not attempt to raid the region and/or overthrow the government.

k. The right to not be subject to cruel or unusual punishment

Section 3. Puppets of Member Nations shall be assumed to be the same legal entity as their main nation, therefore any right violation of a puppet shall count as a violation of their main Member Nation's rights.

ARTICLE 3. Regional Officers
Section 1. The Founder, Celestial Wave, shall have all available game-side powers. The Founder's primary duties are to safeguard the region from invasion, to appoint and dismiss officers when required, and to run election polls.

Section 2. The President shall be democratically elected by all Member Nations every June and December and have all available game-side powers. The President is the chief executive of the region and is tasked with leading the cabinet and representing the region. They shall be given broad discretion to exercise their powers.

Section 5. SolarFlare shall have a cabinet composed of several officers with specific duties, responsibilities, and powers. Every June and December, the President will nominate several nations to serve in the cabinet. All nominees shall be either confirmed or rejected by popular vote (simple majority). These elections should run concurrently with each other on Google Forms directly after the Vice President elections. The President may create a new cabinet office whenever they please and nominate their nation of choice. Nations can serve up to 12 months in any given cabinet office. If an office becomes vacant, the President can nominate a new nation to be confirmed. Offices of the cabinet may include, but are not limited to the Foreign Affairs Officer (FAO), Communications Officer, and Roleplay Manager.

Section 6. A snap election occurs whenever an office becomes vacant either through resignation or removal.

Residents who are not Member Nations (as defined by Article 3) may be ejected and/or banned from the region for violating any Article 2 rule without the possibility of a trial. Member Nations, however, may sue the government if they believe their ejection was unreasonable or violated their rights.

Section 3. The government of SolarFlare may determine the region's stance on raiding and defending, and if there are enough willing WA members, they may establish a military. Such a military may not invade or help invade allied regions except to defend them.

ARTICLE 6. Voting

Section 5. In order to win an election, a candidate must receive a majority of votes, excluding abstentions.

Section 6. Voting shall always be optional. Any officer found tampering with the vote or defying the procedures laid out in this article shall be subject to a trial.

ARTICLE 7. Court of Justice
Section 1. All legal disputes shall be settled in the Court of Justice, with the Judicial Council mediating the case. The Judicial Council shall be composed of 3 Member Nations who are not the President, Founder, or Vice President. Every March and September the Judicial Council will be elected by all Member Nations, or whenever there is a vacancy. One of these council members will be selected to be the Head Council Member. If a council member is absent during a case or has a conflict of interest causing them to be biased, a replacement will be picked by the Head Council Member.

Section 2. The Attorney General (AG), who shall be appointed by the President, shall represent the government in all court cases. They shall serve at the government's pleasure. The AG represents the government in legal cases. They must defend the government in suits against it, and must prosecute or appoint a prosecutor in criminal cases. The AG also may also vet people who apply to be lawyers under the SolarFlare constitution to allow them to serve as lawyers.

Section 3. The government may levy charges against a nation if they have been accused of breaking a law. Likewise, any resident may levy charges against the government if they believe they have broken a law or suppressed their rights. In cases of rule violation, the burden of proof is on the petitioner to prove the defendant is guilty.

Section 4. All participants in court have the following rights:
a. The right to an attorney— if they cannot find one, the state must hire an attorney for them
b. The right to remain silent
c. The right to not testify against oneself

Section 5. After hearing the case, the Judicial Council will vote on the decision and decide the punishment if the defendant is guilty. The side with the majority wins. The Head Council Member will publish a court opinion detailing the facts of the case, the decision, and the reasoning behind it.

ARTICLE 8. Passage, Replacement, and Amendments
Section 1. This constitution completely replaces the First Constitution of SolarFlare and is the supreme governing document of the region. It shall be enacted with a two-thirds vote by Member Nations.

Section 2. All elected officers under the First Constitution expire immediately and new elections will be held promptly.

Section 3. Any Member Nation may suggest an amendment to this Constitution. There shall be 4 days of debate and revisions followed by 6 days of voting. An amendment requires at least 4 votes in favor and a majority of votes cast to pass. Once an amendment is passed, it will be added to the end of the constitution and all parts rendered null by the amendment will be struck out.
