The Imperator serves as the chief executive of the Legion. The Imperator controls all aspects of the alliance aside from anything specified within the Charter. Once the Imperator is selected, the Imperator will stay in power until he/she resigns or is removed. The Imperator faces a Confirmation Vote every four months. In this vote, the membership will choose whether to keep the Imperator or remove him/her out of office. The Imperator must pass with a majority to remain in office. In addition, the Imperator appoints the Proconsul and members of the Consulate.

Powers of the OfficeEdit

The Imperator is granted all the powers not specifically denied to it or delegated to another Charter-defined position. The explicitly defined powers of the office are:

  • Ability to set membership admission criteria
  • Appointment and removal of the Proconsul
  • Appointment and removal of Consulate officials
  • Ability to declare war and obtain peace
  • Ability to declare an aggressive war in the most dire of circumstances
  • Veto power over and final say in Tribunal punishments
  • Ability to pardon or commute judicial punishments
  • Reserve power to expel a Legion member for a serious crime

Oversight and Veto PowerEdit

The affairs of the Imperator and government are monitored by the Office of the Inspector General. The Inspector General acts as a gatekeeper in the Vote of No Confidence process in determining whether the removal of a government official is warranted or not. The Inspector General also performs regular audits of the Legion Ministries, reporting its findings directly to the membership. In the event of possible misconduct or abuse, the Proconsul is tasked with oversight of the Inspector General, acting as gatekeeper of Vote of No Confidence requests specifically against the Inspector General.

To check the powers of the Imperator, the Consulate retains a veto power over executive decisions. In order to veto an imperial decision, the Consulate must rule against the decision with at least a 3/4 vote. To date, an official veto has only occurred once.

SuccessionEdit

Succession of the Imperator is governed by the Legion Charter. In the event the Imperator resigns, they must appoint a replacement. Historically, this replacement has always been the Proconsul. In the event that the Imperator fails the quarterly confirmation vote, they are removed from office and the Proconsul becomes the new Imperator, subject to an immediate confirmation vote. Should both Imperator and Proconsul fail the confirmation vote, an election is to be held to elect a new Imperator to office.

Imperator EmeritusEdit

Imperator Emeritus is an honorary title bestowed to former Imperators of the Legion who have served with distinction. The title was established during the transition from the first and second Imperators. The title has no legal standing or powers associated with it.
