Domestic Regimes in a Renewed America

This is the next step in my ever longer series of posts on the subject of laws and institutions related to reconstitutionlization and renewal of the United States of America. I have already taken some time to discuss some aspects of this subject within my other posts. That is because it is a really essential part of the larger subject. In this post I will not exhaust the subject either. I will only bring it a bit more fully into focus. I will only make it the center of what is inevitably a very short note to deal with such a topic. There will be Direct The Imperial Government Civil Code which shall govern much of the life and legal operation within Direct Imperial Government Lands. There will be a title within this Civil Code called Variances which will discuss the ways in which the various Districts such as The District of Columbia, Compact Districts of Compact Zones, Royal Fiat Bands and Fiefdoms can modify this Code as well as fill in its gaps and how and to what degree they can interpose their own authority between this Code and their Constituents. This Code will not be binding on any of the Constitutional Jurisdictions nor on the Federal Jurisdictions such as military bases of the United States military. However, where there is ambiguity or silence the courts and other governments will use this Code as an understanding of the law within the Empire on all subjects. There will be no Title in this Code more vital and more honored than Domestic Regimes.   

This Domestic Regimes title will describe the full policies and some of the reasons or connections between the policies as they are embodied into the making of law and the enforcement of that law. The title will also state again that a Jurisdiction of a constitutional nature must be able to regulate and order its own Domestic Regimes.The title will also reference another title in the Imperial Government Civil Code, that title is  Persons which will define Men and Women as two principal classes of persons under the law. The Title will also state the connections and cross-references to other titles of significant if lesser importance to the topic of this area of law. This will be a rather long and intricate title but I am going to set out the basic outlines of the title as of right now with no basic sources in front of me and without asserting that none of it would change in the final analysis and the final version of the text. But here it is:

THIS PART OF THE TITLE WILL BE CITABLE HERE AND BE NOTED FOR SUCH CITATION BUT WILL APPEAR UNDER A SEPARATE TITLE OF THE SAME NAME AS THIS SUBSECTION. 

 Of course what would be said in each of these sections is quite vital but already one can see that it is a very great distance from our current sate of affairs.  However, this would not replace the law within the Constitutional Jurisdictions. However,  it would replace the law both in the District of Columbia and in those lands that would be governed by the Direct Imperial Government. Should the system proposed come into being such a title would doubtless have some influence everywhere. However, there would be parts of it which could not be reproduced in the States or elsewhere and that would tend to limit its other provisions being adopted out of context.
