IntroductionEdit

The Foreign Division (TFD) is a relatively traditional yet unique alliance in Cyber Nations. The alliance was founded by Tamurin on the 21st of February 2007, and during the Third Great War accepted refugees from both sides. TFD is a democratic alliance with an elected legislative body (Senate) and several ministers as well as a Speaker of the Senate as head of the government.

Membership in The Foreign Division is open to all members of Cyber Nations. We don’t ask you where you were and what you did. Here with us only what you are and do now and in the future counts. This is your place to start over, leave the past behind and move on. We ask that applicants end any war(s) they may be involved in prior to seeking membership.

All members enjoy the right of free speech, security and identity protection. It is illegal for any government body to investigate the past of any member. This information may only be provided by the members themselves.

VII. Article Seven: State of EmergencyEdit

A state of emergency is a situation where the internal and/or external security of TFD is threatened. A state of emergency may only be invoked in situations similar to: war, serious international tensions close to war, rebellion, collapse of the internal structure of TFD, major unavailability of the TFD government - however, these possible scenarios are only a fraction of scenarios where a state of emergency may be announced. The goal of the state of emergency is to create a fast-acting government that can address and quell the source of the problem.

VII A. The following people can announce a state of emergency, and the following is the chain of command during a state of emergency:

VII A 1. Pentarch

VII A 2. Highest-ranking members of Pentarchs’ staffs

VII A 3. Magistrate

VII B. If nobody is available, but an emergency situation is obviously at hand (e.g. a full-grown frontal attack that is threatening the existence of TFD and its members), the emergency shall automatically be declared and may be formally declared by any of the authorized members later.

VII C. During a state of emergency, an Emergency executive Committee (EEC) shall be created. The Emergency executive Committee (EEC) consists of all members of the government (Pentarchs, Pentarchs’ staffs, and Magistrates).

VII C 1. The Emergency executive Committee (EEC) rules by decree. It is organized in a hierarchy, corresponding with the list above. An order by the highest ranking available person can only be overruled by a 2/3-majority of the whole Emergency executive Committee (EEC). Until such a majority is reached, the order is valid and has to be followed. Normal constitutional decision-finding processes do not apply during a state of emergency.

VII C 2. The State of Emergency shall end with a majority (51%) vote of the Emergency executive Committee.

VII C 3. The Magistrates can overturn the State of Emergency without the 51% vote if the emergency was reasonably believed to have been called in a non-threatening situation and may cause delay, or harm to TFD and her security, and/or internal structure.

VII C 3 a. The Magistrates’ action can be reversed by majority vote of the EEC inn which the State of Emergency will resume as normal.

VII C 3 b. If the state of emergency hasn’t ended after one month, the Pentarchy (not the Emergency executive Committee (EEC) has to vote to continue it with a majority vote, otherwise it ends.

VII C 4. Violations against the constitution that happened during a state of emergency cannot be prosecuted afterwards. However, it is illegal to change the constitution during the state of emergency. Let it also be stated that during a state of emergency, no rule in the charter may be suspended at any time for any reason, with the exception of Pentarch Elections to not worry about a mid-crisis transition.

XII. Article Eight: The Legal SystemEdit

The Magistrates have the responsibility for conducting all trials within the Foreign Division.

XII A. The Magistrates may hear any case that concerns a matter directly dealt with in the Charter or the laws and treaties of The Foreign Division. Additionally, the Magistrates may hear cases concerning conduct by members of TFD that is not explicitly in the Charter but that affects the security or well-being of the alliance or its members. These issues include but are not limited to:

XII A 1. Harassment

XII A 2. Aid or tech theft

XII A 3. Insubordination or refusing to obey the directions of the TFD government when they are acting within their duties as laid out in the Charter

XII A 4. Chronic inactivity (as defined as an unexplained absent for more than one week or the absence from government duties for more than half of the term of the official for any reason) in the case of government members

XII A 5. Unauthorized declarations of war or spy attacks.

XII B. The Magistrates shall have discretion in determining the specific trial process but any process that is chosen must be conducted fully in public and protect both parties' rights to a fair trial. Any procedure that is chosen by the Magistrates can be overridden by a 3/5 vote of the Pentarchy.

XII C. The defendant shall have the right to appeal the decision to the Pentarchy. The Pentarchy shall make its ruling based on the evidence that has been presented in the trial. If 4/5 of the Pentarchy feel that the Magistrate's ruling was improper, they may overturn it and institute a different ruling.

XII D. The punishments that the Magistrates may levy include but are not limited to monetary fines, community service, temporary expulsions, permanent expulsions, temporary war, and war until zero infrastructure. Expulsions and wars shall be reserved for the most severe offenses like spying, treason, or repeated violations of this charter.

XII E. If a Magistrate was personally involved in a matter, s/he shall be found to have a conflict and removed from the trial. To ensure that three Magistrates are available to hear the case, the Pentarchy may appoint an interim Magistrate for the duration of the trial. The interim Magistrate shall only serve for the purposes of the trial and must also be uninvolved with the case.

IX. Article Nine: Peace and WarEdit

The Pentarchy is the only body of the Foreign Division that decides on Peace and War. Unprovoked offensive wars (raiding, tech farming etc.) are illegal. Only defensive wars (declaration of wars against nations that have attacked alliance members) are legal, if they are sanctioned by the Pentarchy, the Controller of Security or any Security staff member granted this authority by the Controller of Security. Spy attacks shall also be considered by The Foreign Division to be acts of war.

X. Article Ten: AmendmentsEdit

X A. All discussions and votes on charter amendments must be held in public.

X B. Any member of The Foreign Division may propose an amendment to the charter of the Foreign Division.

X C. Once a charter amendment has been proposed, a discussion period within the alliance will begin. The discussion period must last no less than two days and no more than one week.

X D. After the conclusion of the discussion period, the voting period begins. The voting period shall last an additional seventy-two hours.

X E. Amendments to the charter may be passed one of two ways: popular vote of the Pentarchy or popular vote of the members.

X E 1. Popular vote of the Pentarchy: Amendments to the charter may be ratified by a ⅘ vote of the Pentarchy

X E 2. Popular vote of the members: Amendments to the charter may be also ratified by a majority vote of the membership. For the member vote to be valid, a quantity of members equal to the quantity of the members that voted in the last general election must vote in the amendment vote. If more than 50% of the members that vote are in favor of the amendment and the total member of members that votes equals the amount of members that voted in the last general election, the amendment shall be adopted.

XI. Article Eleven: Mergers, Annexations, and DisbandmentEdit

XI A. All discussions and votes on concerning mergers, annexations, and disbandment must be held in public.

XI B. Any member of The Foreign Division may propose a merger, annexation, or disbandment but for a proposal to move on to the next stage, at least two Pentarchs must agree to continue discussion of the proposal.

XI C. Once a merger, annexation, or disbandment has been proposed, a discussion period within the alliance will begin. The discussion period must last no less than two days and no more than one week. The discussion period may be ended after less than one week if ⅗ of the Pentarchy votes to close discussion.

XI D. After the discussion of the proposal has been closed, the voting period begins. Mergers, annexations, and disbandment must be also ratified by a majority vote of the membership. For the member vote to be valid, a quantity of members equal to the quantity of the members that voted in the last general election must vote in the amendment vote. If more than 66% of the members that vote are in favor of the amendment and the total member of members that votes equals the amount of members that voted in the last general election, the merger, annexation, or disbandment shall be adopted.


Historical Governments of TFDEdit

PentarchsEdit

From 2008 to 2011, The Foreign Division ran on a Senate/Minister/Magistrate system where the popularly elected Senate held the legislative power, the Senate appointed Ministers to hold the executive power, and the popularly elected Magistrates held the judicial power. Although this worked well for a while, eventually, the division of power between the legislative Senate and the executive Ministers caused confusion over whose job it was to do what.

TFD decided to change to a new system where the executive and legislative powers were combined in five elected officials, called Pentarchs. The hope was that by doing this, the executive split between the Senate and the Ministers would be eliminated.

Three of the Penarchs represent the three important areas of the alliance: Diplomacy, Prosperity, Security; and two are at large government officials who oversee of the areas that are outside of or overlap these three such as our directorate system.

President & SpeakerEdit

SenatorsEdit

The Senators are members of the Senate of the alliance. They are elected from general membership of The Foreign Division. To be eligible for a Senate position, a nation must have resided in The Foreign Division for at least 3 months (determined by the joining date on the forums). Senators are in office for 4 months, after which there are elections for the positions. Every two months two senators are re-elected. The two senators up for re-election are the two senators who were not up for election two months previously. Thus every two months two senators are re-elected who then serve for 4 months before being up for election again. There are five seats open for Senators (since November 2007; before, there were only four).
