This is page Three of the New Model Constituion of the United States of America and consists of Articles Eight through Eleven.
Article Eight: Citizenship
Section One: Rights and Duties of Citizenship
Subsection One: Federalism
No one may be a citizen of the Union or Empire, which are for these purposes the same, for more than five year as an adult or six and a half years as a minor without also being the Citizen of a Constitutional Jurisdiction. For these purposes the Constitutional Jurisdiction with the lowest bar of fomal Citizen enrollment is intended to be the Direct Imperial Government Jurisdiction.
Subsection Two: Rights of Citizens
Provision One: Federalism
The Federal and Imperial Governments are to remain limited players in the domestic regimes of distinct jurisdictions. Movement to another Jurisdiction where one lives under different laws as a citizen of the Empire and subject of the Emperor with jurisdictional protected resident status shall be a legal possibiloty for all citizens. Change of Jurisdictional Citizenship may not be prohibited by Imperial or Federal Law nor by the already Domiciling Jurisdiction.
Provision Two: Due Process
All Citizens have the right to trial by a jury in which their true peers take some part on all capital criminal matters or matters which may bring the total lifetime period of the citizen’s incarceration over ten years and this will be true under any system of law in the Empire or Union. Citizens have the right of Habeas Corpus, to trial within a day and a year of being charged, to confront their accusers and to file an appeal under every criminal system of law in the Empire. In civil matters they a right to a reasonably fair and just ajudication by competent courts.
Provsion Three: Economic Rights
Citizens have the tight to hold holdable and own alienable property, to contract, to fair compensation under law and equity and to organize in promotion of their economic interest and to advocate for the same within a reasonable and civil regime reflecting constitutional values.
Provision Four: Voting
No Citizen may be deprived of the right to vote in any election to which law or Consttution entitle him to vote by action or statute setting up special, unfair or unduly irksome obstacles to said voting.
Provision Five: Religion
Citizens may assemble in Federal or Non Domestic DIG district to practice any religion so long as it is duly registered and a small fee paid. In part because of the Constitution of 1789 and in part on Principle, no Constitutional Jurisdiction may have such an official religion as excludes other religions from the use of publice facilities and civil institutions for minimal recognition nor may it unduly assume the character of endorsing a single religion. However, the governments of the people may prefer a religion and recognize ties to it and may state this in laws. Where there is a Royalist system the religion of the Monarch may be honored in certain important public events so long as the Monarch of said Jurisdiction invites the Imperial Chaplain to perfrom at least one high ranking Jurisdictional ritual each year and does not infringe on the people’s right to religious plurality here guaranteed.Where they are not official or preferred religions Christianity and its existing near variants, Judaism and Aboriginal American paganisms are entitled to unique protection from persecution, encroachment or abuse by government action and inaction. No government in the Empire may destroy an esxisting House of Worship or Religious Activity or Holy Site for any reason related to its operations or nature nor without the highest standards of due process. Religious practices in homes and religious institutions or holy sites may not be interfered with by any government in the Empire unless the need to stop serious mala in se crimes, direct active treasonable acts and the clear threat to public safety is strong and the standards of due process or exceptionally high or there have been completely exhausted the admisitrative efforts to deal with a sries of mala prohibita crimes not created to restrict religion and a special warrant has been issued to authorize very specifi action and stating the history behind its own isssuance. No religous institution may be required to hire or contract with nonadherents in areas of ritual and worship, training of religious workers in the narrow sense, or education of children under the age of twelve regardless of any law anywhere in the Empire. The Emperor is by definition preferred to be a Roman Catholic Christian and may only otherwise be a Greek Orthodox Christian. Protocol will require that officials and citizens choose less desirable positions when enaged in Imperial rituals if they wish to actively deny support to these religions. However active adherence to any religion cannot be required for ordinary public participation in any public Imperial ritual. Citizens are free from prior restraint on religious publications. Citizens may instruct their children in their own faith and licensed clergy may instruct adult adherents in any faith. The Empire does have religious policy, some religions are better than others, a few are mostly evil and religious practice is an important public matter. Atheistic materialism is often toxic and evil but not always and although it is disimilar to ther religions is entitled to all the protections accorded non-specified religions in this Provision.
Provision Six: Arms
All Citizens have a right to partcipate in such well organized militias as when taken as a joined whole provide both for Imperial Defence and as a deterrent for Centralizing unitary forces detroying the Federal nature of our Union. In addition, all citizens have the right to own and bear such weapons at most as would enable a competent person operating at home to possibly kill a small group of bandits attacking that home. Law and special status may allow for greater rights.
Provision Seven: Assembly
The Right of the People to peaceably assemble in public access apace or duly licensed space may not be restricted by the federal government nor often, or in a very effective and direct way be restricted by any Jurisdictions.
Provision Eight: Expression
1.Every Jurisdiction must maintain Free Speech Alleys near the Legislature where almost any political speech can be made with impunity.
2.The Nobility of the Robe may not be prosecuted or sued for ordinary acts of slander or defamation of public officials and their honor rating shall not depend on answering cahllenges for offensive expression: owever, this protection is limited to their exercise of their robed offices and actvities closely related to it.
3. The Press shall be Subject to an Honor Code Variance and other Laws in the DIG as to accountability, slander, libel and inciting sedition. However, not all media of communication qualify for this protection. The pay per copy and subscription print on paper Newspapers and magazines in the print versions are most protected. Where there are paid writers who are lagely citizens writing in a permanent text medium even if video and audio are used where copying and distribution are difficult and bylines are normal and a price is paid by the acquirer of each copy then it shall be assumed most Press protections apply.
3. However, even the Protected Press can be prosecuted for unreasonable endangerment of public order as a misdemeanor and even the Nobility of the Robe can be prosecuted for felonies of inciting Sedition or Treason or crimes of conspiracy to kill the Imperials, Royals, Nobles and Life office holders.
4.However, no verbal political expression encouraging change with in the Constitution may be prohibited, nor any representation of sexual images of adult coital types of sex without unusual injury which are distributed commercialy to consenting adults nor may duly entitled adults be prohivited from using them in the instruction of specified and proper groups of adolescents by any government in the Empire. No Commercialy distributed proselitizing for a religion or political party to consenting adults amy be prohibited which does not incite a felony by any government in the Empire.
5. Imperial Code and Military Code restrictions on expression may not be imposed on Constitutional Jurisdictions.
6.The Press shall be accorded special rights as will the Nobility of the Robe and neither of these two privileged groups as earlier described shall be a priori exclusive of large segments or targeted groups of Citizens or protected residents.
Provision Nine: Sexual and Domestic Rights
1. All Citizens have a right to representation in and election of some portion of the Jurisdictional legislature where the Domestic Regimes are discovered, created and recognized in law for Citizens of that Jurisdiction and in general for other living there. It is to be understood always in this constitution thant representation in the DIG Jurisdiction may be more iregular and inconsistent than in any other jurisdiction.
2. All Jurisdictions must give full faith and credit to the first marriage between a man and a woman never married before or a between a man and a woman where the previous marriages were all terminated by death in which the surviving spouse is not implicated for as long as that Marriage is held to be extant and vaild by the Jurisdiction which declred or recognized the Marriage originally. The Jurisdictions may not criminalize behavior which is permitted and licensed as a domestic regime by another jurisdiction. They may after reasonable ajudication expel persons engaged in behavior licensed elsewhere on penalty of law but may not prohibit their entry based on holding a Domestic License for behavior they criminalize.
3. No Jurisdiction nor any government may prohibit citizens from using the the Services of the Imperial Mistress of Ceremonies Office of Liaison and Placements, nor criminalize the unions produced. They may recognize these Contracts as plural marriages and the ties between Maids and Principals as domestic unions but they may not elevate them to equality with regular marriages in a way which voids the protections on succession, filiation and social mingling which have been covenanted. On the other hand they may outlaw the living out of these establishments in their territory but not interfere with the living of the citizens in their territory so long as principal and sexual cohabitation occurs in DIG or other Jurisdiction.
4. No Jurisdiction or other government may prohibit the sale of condoms to adults of either sex or to females who have attained adolescence.
5.No Jurisdiction or government may prosecute an adult monk for simply having sexual relations with another adult monk nor an adult nun for having sexual relations with another adult nun where the monastic establishment was legally permitted. Nor can plural wives be prosecuted simply having sexual relations within a harem where the harem is recognized by law. If a Jurisdiction recognizes a Liason or Placement or Domestic Rregime in which maids and principals are joined to a man together then no government may prosecute the particular maid and principal structured together for having sexual relations with one another.
6. No artist or entertainer may be sued or prosecuted for produing nude images or performances without contact nor coital or pre-coital images without great violence in a Jurisdction where they are unlawful if they were lawful where produced.
7. All members of the Imperial Harem must be openly acknowledged as consorts and treated with respect as House members even if polygamy is ilegal in that Jurisdciton.
8. The Empire and the Union may exercise pressures and some interference with sexual and domestic law is inevitable but this Constitution does not require such faith and credit as would deprive a Jurisdiction of the right and power to make such difficult choices as creating sexual and domestic law requires. This provision is to be by far the largest interference in their affairs and is to be narrowly interpreted.
9. The Emperor may not send forces to abduct women without legal fault nor use the legal machinery of the state to compel women outside the harem to sexual submission. However, he is an absolute person who cannot legally commit rape or adultery or be the partner with whom a woman in the Empire commits criminal or civil adultery. Nor can any fault less than rape or adultery be directly related to or derived from his sexual relationships with women Citizen-Subjects of the Empire. This will be true for all governments and jurisdictions.
Subsection Two: Duties
Provision One: Universal Duties of Citizenship
All Citizens have the duty to contribute to the support of themselves and their families within the whole system of fair laws, privacy and equity recognized by this constitution. All Citizens have a duty to to fealty to the Emperor within the whole system of fair laws, privacy and equity recognized by this constitution. All Citizens have a duty to study Imperial Citizenship within the whole system of fair laws, privacy and equity recognized by this constitution. All Citizens have a duty to defend their Jurisdiction, the Empire, the Union, the Emperor, the Empress and the Imperial House from all serious and dangerous enemies within the whole system of fair laws, privacy and equity recognized by this constitution.
Provsion Two: Special Cases
The first Provision in the Subsection shall never limit the duties Citizen-Subjects may have to the Empire, Monarch or other parties to which they have citizenship duties. The constitution must elsewhwere provide limits upon such duties or law must. The above section merely limits those duties to be imposed on all or nearly all citizensat a constitutional level. That narrow limit however is intended to be effective.
Section Two: Noncitizenship
Noncitizens retain the legal capacity for citizenship. They are entitled to habeas corpus. They have a right to Imperial personal protection greater than Citizens although small in terms of modern ploitical rhetoric. They have a right to protection from gratuitous mistreatment. Noncitizens have the Ius Gentium Title protections of the the rights they brought with them from their own country uless better rights are specifically accorded them by law or treaty. They are human persons by act of God as the Empire officialy believes but are not assured of the full exercise of all human dignity unless positively accorded it by rights politicaly established. Prisoners of War, truly, fully and clearly ilegal aliens, felons and traitors are presumed to be in the least protected category of persons. Those born in the Empire to noncitizens who are not themselves guilty of great wrongs are presumed to be in the most proceduraly elevated and lawfully protected class of noncitizens. The Empire will abide by sound treaties for the protection of noncitizens and reciprocal treaties will be given the greatest weight. All citizens stripped of the rights of citizenship by conviction of ordinary felonies shall have their rghts restored automatically upon death as to their estates and heirs without prejudice to actions lawfullly taken against them while they were felons. The Imperial Judiciary or the US Supreme Court may restore the rights ofany felon in the Empire who has served their legal sentence. The Jurisdictional courts may only restore rights to felons convicted under their own law and by their own courts and domiciled in their own Jurisdiction. However, Jurisidictional courts may release a fleon and when all the Jurisdictions involved in a a felony have released a felon this constitution shall hold the felon’s rights to be restored.
Section Three: Persons and Peoples
Subsection One: Universal Human Laws and Principles
Provision 1. All Sovereign Governments in this realm and their agents must conclude and act as though anyone born or conceived of a mother and father who were capable of sexual reproduction with the Imperial House or other accepted humans such as the billions of known humans in the world and who is related genetically to known humans is a human.
Provision 2. All humans are born legally capable of maturing into adults who are capable of contracting marriage, holding citizenship, voting in some kind of legislative election in this realm and exercising the general right to contract.
Provision 3. All humans have a limited and a general interest in the knowledge of processes by which a sovereign or other parties does in fact or may deprive a human of the exercise of those basic rights of which all humans are capable.
Provision 4. Equality of rights is a useful legal default principle but it is not essential to the arrangement of all or most social expressions of the human condition.
Subsection Two. Universal Laws and Principles for Citizens
Provision 1. Anyone born on lands which are part of the United States or Federal American Empire of the United States is either born a Citizen or a Protected Resident Capable of Citizenship.
Provision 2. Race alone is not sufficient to prevent any person from exercising the rights of Citizenship.
Provision 3. All citizens may also be referred to as Citizen-Subjects of the Emperor.
Provision 4. All Citizens have the right to vote for some kind of representative in the legislature of a Constitutional Jurisdiction, to contract marriage according to the domestic regimes of their Constitutional Jurisdiction, to exercise the Right to Contract, to own and hold property under the laws of their Constitutional Jurisdiction, to Habeas Corpus from all Sovereign Governments in the Empire, to bear arms to some degree as designated by their Constitutional Jurisdiction and the Empire.
Provision 5. Nobody born to a status below Citizenship can pass on such a lifelong status to their children unless it be rightly and freely confirmed and chosen by the same nor can they die of old age in such status unless they have freely and rightly confirmed it. The Empire as a whole shall verify that such persons as are not citizens are receiving some benefit and conferring some benefit on the head of their domestic regime by their status. The Empire shall have rights to see to their welfare and humane treatment.
Subsection Three. Laws and Principles Relating to Constitutional Jurisdictions
Provision 1. Whatever rights are not removed from the States in this regard clearly by these Laws and Principles shall be retained by the States.
Provision 2. The States shall at the start and founding of the new regime give up such lands as the New Constitution shall designate to form the Territories, Possessions and Direct Imperial Government Jurisdiction although much of these lands shall come from lands not held or not effectively held by the States.
Provision 3.The Territories and Possessions are creatures of the New Constitution differently from the States and are more subject to its close scrutiny and direction at the time of founding and in subsequent operation. However, once the rules are set up they are to operate within those rules a limited but true constitutional sovereigns.
Provision 4. At least Seventy-five percent and not more than ninety-eight percent of all legislative seats, public school payroll positions, free market land sections, public official positions and Jurisdictional Guard positions in the Territories and Possessions must belong to members of that group of people for whom these Constitutional Jurisdiction were created.
Provision 5. All Territories and Possessions must have a bicameral legislature. Those among these two lower ranks of constitutional Jurisdictions which are in any way federal or federalized must have as many as reasonable and more than half of all seats and divisions of the upper chamber divided by the constitutional sections of the Jurisdiction and the lower chamber apportioned by population. Every one of these two lower ranks of constitutional jurisdiction must have at least one seat in the upper house elected exclusively by and from those who are spouses in or direct first or second generation descendants of legitimate or recognized natural marriages with White or North East Asian Nobles and Aristocrats in the Empire. Should there be none in such category a place saver shall be appointed by the Emperor. The Possessions must set aside at least one-fourth and not more than one-third of their upper chamber seats to those that are legally deemed to be more than one-third White or forty percent North East Asian genetically or genealogicaly. However many such seats are created in a Possession’s upper chamber nearly half must be elected only by such Colored African-Americans and nearly half must be elected by a racially unclassified portion of the electorate. The Territories must set aside at least one tenth and not more than one quarter of their upper chamber seats to those that are legally deemed to be High Yellows or whiter under their Jurisdictional Racial Code. However many such seats are created in a Territory’s upper chamber nearly half must be elected only by such High Yellows or whiter persons and nearly half must be elected by a racially unclassified portion of the electorate.
Provision 6. All States must have either one or two North East Asian Districts which can elect a Representative in the 800 seat House of Representatives unless they have no large traditional district or population of such persons. Such States with few North East Asians must designate a district as the NEA competitive district. All States must have a Colored District which does not directly elect a Member of Congress but does elect at least one member of the State legislature. All States must have a State Racial Code enacted in law. One percent of all revenues collected by all States shall be paid into paid into Capital Development funds of all neighboring Territories and Possessions. Half shall be done equally among all such Jurisdictions and half according to the laws of the State.
Provision 7. Racial Protocols and Identity among all citizens shall be a shared responsibility and not subject to political race-baiting to the degree that this can be eliminated. The race of an individual shall be primarily identified by Family Associations as assisted by Kindreds. A Constitutional Jurisdiction or a person with standing may bring a legal action disputing the race of a given person but this shall be binding only on that person and in that jurisdiction and shall not serve as evidence in other such actions. However, an Instance of Disrepute shall be entered in the Empire wide records of the Family and Kindred with comment by the Imperial House. When four percent or more of all persons in a family association have been held to be of Disreputable Designation then the Association shall be forcibly reformed by the Imperial Household. No Constitutional Jurisdiction may entirely forbid mixed marriages among and between races nor the use of public facilities by the member of any race. However, Jurisdictions may require differing behavior by varied races to a limited degree and States may assert a White Supremacist regime in law. Territories of any Aboriginal Kind may assert a regime of limited Racial Ceremonial Preference in Civil Institutions. To enforce these racial codes Jurisdictions may suspend some privileges of those not complying with racial laws and so an ID card may be used to keep track of such infractions. All jurisdictions may in a limited, courteous and clear way discriminate against citizens of neighboring jurisdictions of a different racial structure in their law compared to Imperial Citizen-Subjects who are not neighbors. The Right to Non-encroachment of the two lower orders is greater than that of the States. All immigrants in the future will have five years after receiving any status from the Union as a whole to find a similar status in a Constitutional Jurisdiction or the Direct Imperial Jurisdiction or else will lose the Union designation as well. Jurisdictions may take cognizance of racial mixed marriage and may treat it as somewhat distinct so long as they do make it impracticable (or nearly so) nor deprive it of its nature and consequences as marriage.
Provision 8.Each Jurisdiction must set aside a small area in its lands for each Compact of Jurisdictions to which it belongs and must not unduly allow its racial laws to interfere with the proper functioning of the Compact in that Compact Zone as regards access, trade and administration. There shall be DIG Jurisdiction Border Zones around all Compact Zones, between all of the lower two ranks of Jurisdictions and any neighbor and along the borders with Mexico and Canada.
Provision 9. The States shall largely determine their own gun laws with some deference for the principles of the Second amendment under the Original Constitution. The Territories shall have full military guard and forces with Imperial and Federal Advisors only and large freedom to acquire such weapons ast they please with a few limits. Other weapons of groups and individuals shall be subject to a brief, reasonable and just Imperial Bill of Limitations as well as Jurisdictional law so lang as the citizen has some real right to bear arms. The Possessions like all States and Territories under the New Constitution will be required to have a Traditional Honor Guard but in their case these shall be half of all jurisdictional full military expenses and positions. The regular Possession Guard shall operate under an Imperial Bill of Limitations. The other weapons shall be held only by those who have duly inherited them or passed a licensing course as well as complying with any jurisdictional law. The Possessions Personal Imperial Bill of Limitations will forbid large magazines, restrict semiautomatic and armor-piercing rounds to members of the five-fold nobility limit the individual to three guns and the Family or Kindred hold to an additional common hold of one tenth as many as individuals belonging may own. Imperial taxes shall be higher on all weapons except single shot weapons and there shall be five levels of increasing taxes.
Provision 10. States shall reserve one percent of their in-state college and university enrollment slots for citizens of neighboring Territories and Possessions. Each State shall in its Racial Code discriminate in favor of White women as providers of paid or covenanted child care to small or young white children while not forbidding all Black daycare it shall prefer Territorials and Coloreds for these certificates to Blacks as well. Beyond race it shall prefer women to men in these same provisions. But it cannot forbid all paid childcare by Blacks of whites.
Provision 11. No State may forbid a North East Asian becoming Senator or Governor by reason of race. No North East Asian may directly succeed another North East Asian who has served a full term as State Governor or US Senator.
Provision 12. In all Jurisdictional Race Codes the Imperial Tribe and Household will be recognized as racially self-governing by all other parts of the Government as to internal affairs and their free exercise.
Provision 13. Where segregation is enforced it shall have lesser application for domestic servants of another race in proper livery and in pursuit of their duties in service to a member of the permitted race.
Subsection Four. Laws and Principles Relating to Imperial and Federal Government
Provision 1. No more than one tenth of general officers above three stars shall be North East Asian in either Imperial or US forces. No Colored State Citizen or Territorial may rise to a rank above three star general in the Imperial or US forces, nor shall more than one tenth of three star generals be Coloreds or Territorials. No Negro or Citizen of the Possessions shall rise above the rank of Brigadier General in the Imperial or US Forces nor shall more than one tenth of all Brigadier Generals be Negros or Citizens of the Possessions.
Provision 2. The US Military shall constitute some regiment in its own structure specific to each Constitutional Jurisdiction and to that Jurisdiction as a whole. The US military shall also operate many and diverse of units open to all persons regardless of jurisdictional citizenship or race. Voting for military base Congressional seats shall not allow for recognition of race nor shall the holding of such seats.
Provision 3. The Direct Imperial Government will have its own Racial Code as well as most of its own Domestic, Municipal and Jurisdictional Laws.
Provision 4. The Direct Imperial Government will be officially a white supremacist regime. However, there will be many set-asides and inequalities including those which are race blind and those which favor races other than the white race. This shall include collecting symbolic milages in addition to regular sales taxes and distributing these monies to racial and ethnic groups honored by them through Compacts, Jurisdictions and Kindreds. Third party collectors will keep a tenth of these monies, the DIG will keep another tenth or twenty percent if it collects the funds itself and the remainder will be disbursed to the benefitting populations.
Provision 5. The Imperial Tribe and Household will be recognized as racially self-governing by all other parts of the Government as to internal affairs and their free exercise.
Subsection Five. Laws and Principles Relating Society and Community outside of Sovereign Government
Provision 1. Compacts are not sovereign at all and belong to the DIG Jurisdiction but are important and shall each have a Compact Variance of the DIG Racial Code.
Provision 2. Compacts shall have bicameral Assemblies and half or more of the lower chamber of each assembly will be made of Kindreds which in turn are made up of Family Associations.
Provision 3.Every Family Association must have a Provision for Race in its charter and a subsection providing for Mixed Race members which does not deny their potential existence.
Provision 4. All Common Carriers providing inter-jurisdictional transportation must carry persons of all races fairly and humanely but beyond that the Empire itself will not dictate their racial policy.
Provision 5. No corporation, institution or municipality may deny distinctions of the fivefold nobility nor its legimitate lower orders to a person on the basis of race. It may segregate within such distinctions so long as it does not render them minimal or denatured by such acts and policies.
Provision 6. All institutions are to be subject legal and honor code actions without the easy excuse of some facile reading of a race law. However, racial equality may never be imposed by the United States or Imperial Governments on non-sovereign and legitimate social actors. That does not mean nothing can be required to be race neutral but only that institutions may not be forced to become largely or entirely race neutral as a consequence of such laws and or governance.
Subsection Six: Special Peoples policies defined Aside from Race
Provision One: Imperial Tribe and House
1. The Identity of These People
This can mostly be understood in the article bearing this name. However, they are constitutionaly the top of the rank of Kindreds, the People with Primacy where Peoples are enrolled and unique in having some Constitutional status as a major constitutional partner in the Union and Empire. Here is an enumeration of names and terms:
i. Acadiana: That part of Louisiana where the Acadians have been the dominant cultural and population group.
ii. Acadie: Mostly the same place as the Canadian province now officially known as Nova Scotia.
iii. Accad: Seat of Nimrod from which he drew the Title “First of all Kings on Earth” this is mentioned in the Book of Genesis in the Bible.
iv. Achaia One of the first and oldest Arcadian colonies where Arcadian culture achieved a true synthesis with other greek tribes and where formal federalism was probably first devloped in the history of human governance both in tribal and inter polis federations. Also the site of the capital city of Meaglopolis which was actually a federation of several polises.
v. Akkad: One of the oldest civilizations known to history. This is the original homeland of the civilization.
vi. Anglo-Acadians are people who belong to the Ethnos Arkadios and see that as their primary ethnicity but are also Anglos or of English descent. There has been some talk in the Acadian Secret Government that if there is ever a return to regular times then there should be certain standing committees of Bouletherion which have never had standing commitee status before but times have changed. These would include an Anglo-Acadian Committee, Germano-Acadian Committee, Italo-Acadian Committee and a handful of other committees similar in nature. Anglo-Acadians and Scots-Acadians are in a particularly difficult situation because of the looming importance of Le Grand Derangement in Acadian history and consciousness. Among the most prominent Anglo-Acadians of recent decades are my grandfather Justice Frank Wynerth Summers of this glossary and Warren Perrin who sued for and received an apology from Her Britannic Majesty which apology is listed in this glossary. Most Anglo-Acadians have almost all ties through marriages of Acadians to Anglos in the United States, Nova Scotia in large numbers or Colonial Louisiana in a few cases. However, in the lore of this subcommunity there are two largely legendary roots which are hard to substantiate but may be true. One is the legend of transchannel families and the belief that despite nationalism, language and other inhibitors there were families with a secret Acadian identity who also maintained unity as a family with separate identities in two states. Most of all this relates to two High Chiefly families the Heberts and the Melancons as well as to two Middle Chiefly family which are the Richards and the Grangers. The older legend is based on a belief that King Arhtur and the Round Table are true stories and that Avalon (which does not always appear in early versions ) was an historic Arcadian colony and center which supported the last classical Briton King in his struggle against invading Norse and Teutonic barbarians.
vii. Arcadia: Homeland of the Ancient Tribe of Arcadians and Kings of Arcadia. Ancestors of Spartan Culture and the Tribe largely responsible for the Hellenic part of Macedonian heritage. Known as a kind of Paradise on Earth to many in the ancient world.
viii. Arcadian An adjective describing something having to do with Arcadia or Arcadians. Having the meaning of a near paradise of pastoral, agricultural and other rural resources.
ix. Arcadie the original name of the colony which became Acadie.
Provision Two: Colonial and Revolutionary Descendants
These people will be given preferences in the DIG, the Compacts and may be so in the Jurisdcitions
Provision Three: Aboriginal Peoples
The Territories are their primaryPrivilege and Settlement of Debts
Provision Four: African-American Freedmen
The Possessions are their primary Privilege and Settlement of Debts.
Provision Five: Hebrews and Jews
The Jews have been the unique group of refugees for whom America has most deeply bound itself. In the Empire Jewish Peers of the Highest rank will have chiefly duties. A strong and meddlesome Israel policy will be constitutional and in the DIG there will be an active policy as regard Judaims itself to offset all the other active policies that have formed and do form it.
Section Four: Sex, Sexuality, Womanhood and Linguistic Gender
Subsection One: Lingustic Gender in this Constitution
Provision One: Where masculine pronouns are used in this Constitution to refer to the Emperor or another role where there are multiple clear pieces of evidence showing that a male is the only possible holder of the title then the term shll have the narrow meaning of a male being intended.
Provision Two: With feminine gender pronouns there is to be a very strong but rebuttable presumption in each and every case that only a female is intended.
Provision Three: However whenver the rights to vote in general elections, rights to seek out military service, rights to hold non-specified office, to contract and to other rights of citizenship are involved in the meaning it it is presumed first that the masculine pronoun can serve for either sex except where the sentence involves coital or reproductive language.
Provision Four: Where Offices are held which do not involve marriage, royal succession, sexual activity other very certain distinctions it is presumed that the masculine pronoun can serve for men and females but it is presumed unless otherwise specified that there may be an intended bias for men but also an even stronger bias against entirely or so largely as to be overhelmingly excluding women. Other provisions should be interprested in light of this likely intnetion.
Subsection Two: Constitutional Jurisdictions Preferred Arbiters of Sexual Matters
Provsion One: Unless otherwise provided for by this Constitution a Constitutional Jurisdiction will be free to determine sexual matters and relations between the sexes. Where its laws are silent the Judiciary shall use the Domestic Regimes title of the Direct Imperial Government Civil Code to determine what is right when it is brought to it attention and may disturb local custom to do so but must interpret the DIG Civil Code to honor and accomodate so much as is possible without violation of the law.
Provision Two: Constitutional Jurisdictions may provide for the matrilineal or patrilineal succession of real properties and real titles pertaining to the Jurisdiction. They may also provide for variants thereof and may var the laws by community and people within a Jurisdiction if this is done clearly and with the consent of such constituencies.
Provision Three: Constitutional Jurisdictions may provide for equality of access in all public civil offices or divde them between those restricted by sex and those open to all.
Provision Four: In the Third Union no Constitutional Jurisdiction may provide in simple blanket language for prohibiting all discrimination based on sex. Nor may it assert that either sex, most likely to be Women, are substantialy devoid of the capacities for or the rights to of Jurisdictional Citizenship.
Provision Five: No Constitutional Jurisdiction may interpose its own authority to prevent either sex, most likely to be Women, from exercising their Federal rights or Imperial Rights and Privileges. The specific minimum limits are:
1. That no Jurisdiction may prevent either sex from voting in the General elections for the Members of Congress, the First Executive Vice-President and his ticket fellow Second Executive Vice President.
2. That no Jurisdiction may prevent either sex or from being randomly selected for the Citizen Subject seats in the Conclave electing the Emperor nor from serving on a Federal Jury.
3. That no Jurisdiction may they prevent either sex from seeking a District seat in the House of Representatives.
4. On the other hand, the jurisdictions may prevent women from seeking seats in the Senate or the at large seats in the House of Representatives as representatives of their Jurisdcition.
Provsion Six: The Military’s code shall provide to what degree it can accomodate the sexual and domestic laws of each jurisdiction in the regiment Constitutionaly assigned to that jursidiction. However, in the military will in general operate under DIG laws in Domestic matters while attempting to avoid serious harm to the domestic commitments and rights personell experience in their Jurisdictions.
Provsion Seven: No Constitutional Jurisdiction may in an authoritative or declarative manner use the name or term ladies to refer to women generaly in civil affairs or under law or in legaly mandated speeches. Ladies refers to Women especialy in the Ordinary Nobility and Secondly in the rest of the fully enrolled Fivefold Nobility. Women who are Gentry and the unenrolled voters may be referred to and designated as Little Ladies, Minor Ladies, Madamoiselles, Senoritas or Gentlewomen under the laws or the law may simply regard them as Women. In the Federal and DIG speheres the lesser ladies will be referred to by thse designated terms. Ladies are an elevated subset of women and shall never be denied any right or privilege due to women generaly.
1. Ladies shall always have the standing to sue in cases of defamation or slander against their family association or any of their children for wrongs committed against such parties.
2. Every society that endures has some sort of cognizance in law of breeding people. In this the Federal American Empire wagers some social capital and invests more in the belief that as whole its nobles, royals and Imperials will improve society by producing more children and especially in classes below their own. Lords are thus likely to be men with greater sexual opportunities, less checks on their inclinations, more dangerous and more difficult to please than most men. Ladies are legaly free to be celibate, some may be single-minded Lesbians and some may marry lower classes.However as a class it is their to mostlymarry and occsionaly become serious mistresses to the Ideal Nobles and their aproximates. They are expected also to breed other Lords and to rear them so that they are not evil and live the licenses of their station with some decorum and distinction. The stresses on them are enormous in these areas and it is because of these reasons and not hypocrisy that there are special sexual laws. Any sexual assualt by an untitled person against a Lady proved under any law shall bring additional Imperial misdemeanor penalties automatically. Sexual slander, libel and defamation of a Lady shall carry automatic punitive Imperial damages in any kind of case. These will be automatic. The near Ladies of the Gentry and Chivalric levels can bring an Imperial case seeking enhancement of damages and punishment and will receive half the benefit the Ladies receive if they prevail in showing it to be pertinent to the facts.
Provision Eight: No Constitutional Jurisdiction shall generaly interefere with povision of the limited Constitutional Imperial services and aid afforded citizens. However, most privileged of all these proffered services shall be the rights of Women to receive the aid of the Empress’s Bureau of Women’s Affairs.
Provsion Nine: Constitutional Jurisdictions may dictate the behavior of the sexes as the same or different in their Traditional Honor Guards, schools, and public access facilities as within their sovereign rights so long as it does not grossly undermine the function of the Empire and Union even by creating excessive sexual separation, however for such an execess to occur there mus t be real harma and the cause must be clear.
Provision Ten: Marriage between persons of the same sex cannot legaly exist in DIG lands or on federal lands. Persons so joined in Jurisdictions are also to be seen as holding license in an abnormal institution which is a threat to public well-being. However, it may be instituted by a Jurisdiction. Those in such unions are to be regarded in Federal and DIG lands as holders of a lowest level license of DIG domestic union. They will be subject to civil and criminal penalties for fraud if they assert themselves as married in such situations. This will not apply to clear and simple reportage of the fact that they are married in such a jurisdiction.
Provsion Eleven: Jurisdictions may largely dictate their own laws of filiation and limited succession so long as there is no law that makes all real property or titles in another Jurisdiction subject to their laws nor forbids domestic unions which limit succession rights in other Jurisdictions from operating with some reasonable legal existence in operations within the Empire and Union. No Jurisdiction can deny the rights of woman never before married who legaly married a many before married and bore him children to be his full partner in rights of property and succession unless she was duly informed and clearly covenanted to a limited contract of marriage or domestic union.
Provision Twelve: Jurisdictions licensing Courtesans must license them in rough paralell to Licensed Imperial Courtesans. However, they may regulate them. Courtesans must be married or have been married within the last two years. There husband must receive a tenth of their fee and be gainfully employed elsewhere or have been so in the last six months.They must demonstrate to the licenser that they have had sexual relations with their husbands and they must have had a child with their husband and had paternity tests demonstrating the same. They must have a protected sex schedule with their husbands. All of their clients must be from a superior social class in some clearly definable way and must be licensed by an agency. Their health must be inspected at least once every two months. They must earn at least five times agency expenses and keep at least half of it themselves.
Provision Thirteen: Wherever any form of plural marriage is licensed each woman must be separately and individualy covenanted to the man who is the husband. If there are Maids and Principals who have a domestic Union with eachother then divorce with one will divorce the other as well but there will still be two separate marriages. Constitutional Jurisdictions need not license plural marriages themselves nor give them full faith and credit but must permit their licenses the ordinary taveling rights of Imperial Citizens within their own laws.
Provsion Fourteen: All Constitutional Jurisdictions must offer Marriage as a domestic regime. Children bron to a Marriage are legitimate and are elgible to full membership in both their parents family associations at the level of their parents within limits imposed by sex, title, race and religion in the charter of the Family Association.
Provsion Fifteen: All Constitutional Jurisdictions must recognize and to some degree regulate Family Associations and see that every Citizen-Subject is enrolled in at least one and to their reasonable knowledge not more than three. All family associations must have a charter appoved by a Kindred which is itself registered in the Empire. All must have have general and restricted votes and men and women must vote equally in the general votes. All must have a trust account verified by the Jurisdiction which may be a holder account if they have no money. All must have designated: an omsbudman, a genealogist and a Little Chief.
Provision Sixteen: No Jurisdiction may provide funding or active support for prolonged action contraception, sterilization, abortion, elective procedures likely to produce cessation of sexual performance or procedures tantamount thereto which do not require production of proof of Jurisdictional Citizenship. It may not provide such services to minors cizens of another Jurisdiction nor to spouses married in another jurisdiction to a spouse citizen of another jurisdiction without expilict permission from the parent or guardian and the spouse. The only exceptions shall be where the patient has shown proof of Citizenship in a Jurisdiction which has a constitution official authorizing domestic compacts and that Jurisdiction has an explicit bilateral compact with the Jurisdiction providing said service.
Provsion Seventeen: Unless countermanded by specific law of the Jurisdciction a Woman in a domestic Union and especially marriage to a Man is in a carreer and occupation thereby and he is her employer as regards the rights of workers and employers to pursue economic goods. Her duties being the providing of sexual and emotional comfort and the production of children for her husband or man. However, he may not fire her, she is not subject to all the regular details of servant- master law nor is he expected to assure her of workplace safety and resource minimums required of employers as they are a domestic and personal unit. Yet she asumes the rights of a worker as regards society as a whole and he those of an employer in the same degree where society would tend to impede their copulation, childbirth, pregnancy, breastfeeding or education of small children. This is their business. Jurisdictions may seek to limit populations but not byresisting supportive conditions for the production of the first two children in a monogamous relationship no the first child in a ploygamous relationship.The children born to any union shall all be full participants in its benefits allowing for some kind of assigned heirship and to the rights of citizenship. Any restriction on the number of children allowed can never attach to the children in penatly but only to the parents. Every mother has also an occupation of mother in a smilar sense unless sepcificaly voided by the laws of the Jurisdiction. No Jurisdiction can convey on husbands or fathers generaly the status of the practitioners of an economic occupation simply in their family sphere.
Provision Eighteen: No mutilated and deformed psychotic known as transgendered may be legaly recognized as having changed sexes by any Jurisdction. However those recognized under the Second Union may be acomodated in some medium way. Such mutilated psychotics claiming to be the opposite sex in DIG and Federal lands shall be a felony fraud. However, there psychosis schall not render them non compos mentis as regards other parts of their live or exercises of rights.
Provison Nineteen: No Jurisdiction may presume that the modern sexual medical establishment or its personnel will act sanely, legaly ethicaly, truthfully or honorably in anyway if left to its unsupervised exercise. It is to be assumed that they will lie and murder and steal at will and without remorse beacuse that has been their wont. The Jurisdictions will have to find some way to allow highly paid and skilled pratitioners with no moral sensibility whatsoever to work in complex human situations freely while still providing some assurance to outsiders that their loved ones are not being mistreated for porfit and amusement. Good medical people have forfeited all rights to be offended by these arrangements by the current state of affairs at the founding. Jurisdictional medical associations may police themselves so long as that is overseen by others. Jusdictional laws must tat in terms of organ procurement it is far better that ten people die of their own diseases than that one person be murdered for their organs. It is to be rpesumed that many physicians would gladly make a living murdering tose seeking sexual services for their organs because many of them love money and have no morals at all.
Provision Twenty: Jurisdictions must provide that real physical eduaction classes be provided to both sexes in public school but may regulate these much as they see fit.
Subsection Three: The Role of Women and Women Exercising Roles of Citizenship
Provision One: In Imperial and Federal employment at all levels women will receive eighty-seven percent of the pay a man receives for the same work.
Provison Two: In Imperial and Federal employment at all levels women will receive leave for a month at pay on getting married or entering into a placement or liasion licensed by the regime or their jurisdiction with a man. They will in those position work on a scale eight-five percent of the hours for each category requirement of ullt-time and overtime and shall receive maternity leave for six weeks at pay on giving birth and two weeks on adopting a child. They will be entitled to five family leave days per year for being women and two more for each child they have for any documented but not necessarily authorized family emergency beyond whatever their male counterparts receive.
Provision Three: All women Citizen-Subjects of the Empire may take refuge in the DIG for three years to escape alleged domestic abuse, forced prostitution or police abuse without running the clock on their citizenship.
Provsion Four: No wife may be compelled to testify in any court against her husband on any matter.
Provision Five: Marriage most of all but licensed concubinage as well is a worthy profession which fosters Imperial interests. A wife may be a good wife to a bad man. It shall never under any law be nough that she knew of crimes her husband committed nor that she lent him support in sexual or domestic routines to make her complicit in his crimes. She must have specificaly contributed to the nature or performance of the crimes. It shall be easier to show him more guilty for using her goodness as a wife as a shield or bait then to make her guilty for performing ordinary wifely duties.
Subsection Four: The Imperial Royal Establishment and Sexuality
Provision one: The language devoted to women and sexuality elsewhere in this Constitution as regards this article. This must neither be done to show the Imperial Royal conditions as abhorrent nor as common or typical of the norm. In dealing with the average woman, family and sexual relationship the Imperial Royal relations should best be regarded as complimentary but joined to the norm by some common features.
Subsection Five: What this Constitution does Hold on Marriage
Provsion One: Marriage is presumed to bind the father to pass an equal share of his to these children along with other legitimate children. In this Empire and Union all children have rights of inheritance but not equal ones. When there is entail or other forms of foced heirship that goes in favor of one or a few children there must be an offset in some not entailed assets. Every creation of a new institution of entail to some children and not others must be approved by the Emperot because almost none have survived during the founding. However, other than saying that at least ten percent of an estate’s value is to be divided among all children left out of the more privileged inheritances and also tipulating that each Jurisdiction must have a default plan the Jurisdictions may handle inheriance and classes of filiation as they choose. The exception being alrady stated that each new entail must once be approved but not in each generation. All father’s estates must provide for the support of all their children from their means before all other calculations. Even if the mother has remarried and adoption has occurred a wealthy estate must provide a one time payment for dissolution and medical records and up to one fifth of the bear cost of survival from death to eighteen or more if back pay is owed. Otherwise, the Jurisdiction shall have a calculated minimum survival rate per year and every father must pay that much to each child until they are eighteen and half till they are twenty-one or an equal share of two thirds of the estate with all children which ever is less. Legitmate children however or at absolute minimum entitled to first proceeds on an estate sufficient to support them until they are twenty-four years old at the level of the co-habiting children of their living father. This is not intended to prevent Jurisdictions creating greater obligations of forced heirship but is a minimum requirement. The Empire in the DIG and cases which fall into its own hands will recognize four categories of filiation for all men but the Emperor and five for the Emperor. For all the other men in the empire the classes are legitimate, natural, ilegitimate and bastard. For the Emperor there is the fifth which is Ceremonial ranked between legitmate and natural. Bastards will receive the minimal succession with others receiving more complex formulations. However, even this does not nearly exhaust the DIG division of successions which will be contained in its Code.
Provsion Two: Marriage elevates a wife fully to her husbands family and social class and some near aproximation of his rank. It elevates a husband nearly to his wife’s class or to the bottom thereof. However, society is in favor of marriage and does not officialy lower the class of a spouse down to the class of a spouse lower in rank. Jurisdictions may change this in their own lands but this will be the case in DIG and Federal lands.
Provsion Three: A husband may be culpable for crimes of abuse and physical violence and these may involve sex. However nowhere in the Empire may a man free of relevant serious disease be legaly capable of raping his wife for an act of coitus or minimum force necessary to secure such an act.
Provision Four: No specifaly consensual sexual relations not likely to produce grave serious physical harms outside of complications of pregnancy occuring in a marriage may be prosecuted.
Provsion Five: No woman may be prosecuted for imodesty or a lewd or suggestive act if it occurs in the presence of her husband. Publicity of the act cannot make it criminal for her although it may for him if he consented to it. Jurisdictions may expel such citizens or otherwise protect public moral but the sexual display by women in view of their husbands is privileged throughout the empire. The publiity of a disturbing act may be prosecutes another disturbing nonviolent act which had no sexual component.
Provsions Six: Each Kindred will have seats in its governance in substantial number reserved solely to married people.

Subsection Two: Bases Abroad
The Third Union will seek to extend any and all base agreements longer than thier current terms within the first five years. It will seek to delineate a better relationship with new Jurisdictions than with their predecessors where such relations exist. It will seek to license in one of a menu of possible ways a Civil Affairs Area with a park, a market specializing in reduced duty sale of US goods to locals and local goods to the Base personnel. Should these exist they will be in the joint jurisdiction of the DIG and the Military. The military will assess with Imperial Authorities those who are good candidates for intermarriage with locals abroad and encourage them but discourage others from such marriages. Schools will be set up for the children of such unions. Frank negotiations will take place with Host countries with regards to sexual relatiosnhips ranging from concubinage to courtesans available to the elite.

Provision Two: The DIG and the Imperial House shall be entitled to administer the civil police duties and forces of the Civil Affairs Areas and to keep an honors unit which will hold warrior classes, drills, lectures in military history and other enrichment activities.

Provision Three: The Imperial Tribe shall be unique in all the Empire in the legality of formal and full simultaneous service in two militaries.

Provision Four: Within a week of setting up a new base or long-term deployment in any jurisdiction the US Military must hold a joint drill with the Jurisdiction’s Tradtional Honor Guard welcoming the US Military in public. Should this not happen then it is to be considered a declaration of strain in the ties of the Union to that Jurisdiction of which all interested parties may take legal cognizance.

Subsection One: Ordinary and Regular Branches
Provision One: The Ordinary and Regular Branches of the US Military shall be the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines

ALthough the military will train and allow women to kill they also will not participate in this system for the kills they make. Their combat will be rewarded but not for kills per se.
Subsection Two: Ordinary Nobility and Royalty
Provsion One: Cooperation and Orientation
In general terms many of the Nobility, Aristocracy and Royalty of the Empire who bear arms in her cause are likely to be drawn to the Honor Guards of Jurisdictions, Compacts and great Households.

Provision Nine: The Military will keep a combat rating on every troop and officer and an additional one on all male line troops and officers and in both of these ratings ever enemy noncombatant or near noncombatant killed or wounded will be a dtraction. However, this shall not be designed so that someone carrying out orders to kill masses of civilians cannot salvage a decent rating over a carreer.

Provision Eleven: Within fifteen years of the Founding the military will have a consulting program across the full society across the Empire and Union to assist in using all features and resources which can provide communities, families, individuals, seed banks, menageries and aquifiers with even partial protection from bombing, fall-out, contamination and radiation. Every new military installation of significant size forever will be built with a real outlay for a civilian and military bomb shelter system even if it cannot be perfect.
Provision Twelve: The Military will develop doctrine based on the probability that Cold War nuclear arms levels were very costly, destructive and imoral on the one hand and that on the other we are probably now in a world where nuclear powers and units we do not know about threaten us at many levels. They will work with the Emperor on long term strategy for peace and survival in a wrold where fighting and killing and nuclear arms will always exist. Specifially it would not mean that they were unthinakbly horrible or clever if every one of the major nuclear powers had a thousand devices we knew nothing about. Detailed treatoes about what happens in other countries must be seen as often necessary in our dire world situation but nonetheless often also tantamount to suicide.
Provsion Thriteen: The Military will commit itself to developing weapons at least on paper for rapid development that involve cleaner nuclear yield and less lasting radioactivity, less demographic targeting and a much greater number of small fast anti bunker, anbti-submarine and anti-spacecraft nuclear weapons. They will also develop nuclear shotguns which fill vast areas of airspace with tiny and fast projectiles which could wipeout a missile or bomber array.
Provsion Fourteen: The Military must understand that its values will be challeneged a reat deal and will have evolve if this Empire once it is founded is to endure.
Subsection Four: The Imperial House and Household
Provision One: All members of the Imperial House and Household who are also member of the US Military or are under its charge are to be treated according the laws and constitutional provisions otherwise governing them except where the Constitution clearly provides for alternate treatment.

Provision Three: Bastards and ilegitimate children of the Emperor whether members of the Imperial Household or not or to be given the greatest class preference for admission and advancement to all ranks up to Captain. However, this greatest of all class preferences shouldnot be very great.

II. Within two years of the Founding the three Branch Academies will have required classes and exercises in swordfighting. Within four years these classes will use the American Imperial Sword.
III. Outside of urgent circumstances all Nobility of the Sword will be required to enter DIG Jurisdiction and any Imperial palace wearing a sword or holding one and within five years these must be American Imperial Swords.
IV. An American Imperial Sword shall be defined by the DIG Civil Code but shall always be a real traditional sword enhanced with a variety of new ancillary bits of weapons and eauipment of varied kinds.
Section Six: Militia, Guards, and the Right to Bear Arms
The Military should in general be a player in the martial culture of society and in doing so should adhere to the constituional authority vested in it as it relates to the constitutional authority defined for others and should seek to support the more complex structure of the Third Union.
Article Ten: Ammendments
This will be left as an incomplete outline in the first draft of this Model Constitution.

There will also be one hundre adults randomly selected from through out the Empire. All will vote as equals in a single chamber after causing in their units.
Section Two: The Coronation Privilege
Each new Emperor on Coronation Day or within two years thereof may proclaim a brief Class Two Ammendment fr circulation without benefit of Congress as though it had been approved by both Houses of Congress.
Section Three: Classes of Ammendments
Subsection One: Third Class Minor Ammendments
Minor Ammendments shall change a Judicial interpretation of the written Constitution which has been given or allowed to become binding Law by the US Supreme Court. Either the Emperor, the Empress or the Executive Vice President or one third of the chief executives or heads of state in constitutional jurisdictions shall issue a Bill of Complaint. Two-thirds of the House of Representatives, two-thirds of the Senate and the majority of the DIG, GRIHHA and Imperial Tribal Council shall annul the finding and Constitutional interpretation verdict without further ado or change in the text of this constitution and the dispute will resume with the judiciary compelled to reach a different result. Should they wish to declare a correct interpretation then the Imperial Law Institute shall convoke a jury of 1000 citizens by a means most economical and persude the majority of them of where the new interpretation was settled from earlier sate of the law. Then the Emperor shall convene a group of 12 from the conveners who shall draft a new interpretation and law. This shall then be ratified by three-fourths votes any two of the five ammending bodies and two-thirds of the remainder. The numbered Ammendment will become new text in the Constitution and will require a Class Two Ammendment to change.
Subsection Two: Class Two Ammendments
Class Two Ammendments shall be available change text in the Constitution relating to logistic and scheduling processes, times procedures, terms not set for life, compensation and the middle region of chains of precedence. These ammendments may also change language and idiom for clarity and modernity. Ammend the relative representation in the House of Representatives by a factor of less than fifty percent on any applied scale being changed and also may change protocol in specified and limited ways. For such Ammendments two thirds of each House of Congress must pass it and then it must be read to the Emperor and Empress in the presence of the GRIHHA by the President of the Senate and then sixty percent of the Grand Senatorial Council must approve it for Circulation after hearing comments from the Imperial Solicitor. Then it shall go into three voting groups and must achieve in any order at least a simple majority majority in two and a three-fourths majority in one or a simple majority in one, a three-fourths majority in the other and forty percent of the votes in the third. These three groups or the Legislatures of the Possessions, the Legislatures of the Territories and the Inperial tribal voters of the Bouletherion in the largest form it is accustomed to take. Then it shall pass to the States and if Two-Thirds of the States pass it then the Emperor freely signing it and the Consent of Two thirds of the Grand Senatorial Council and the GRIHHA shallmake it a Numbered Ammendment. If at the poroper point the states receive it and three-fourths or more shall favor it then it shall be law and a numbered ammendment without further ado.
Subsection Three: Class Three Transformative Ammendments
Transformative Ammendments must be apporved by two-thirds of the House and Senate, receive ten percent of the vote in each of the DIG Legislature, Imperial Tribal Council and the endorsement of the First Executive Vice-President. Then Two thirds of the Possessions,Two Thirds of the Territories and Three Fourths of the States must approve it or else all the States must approve it. It shall then go to the Emperor if it lacks support of the Territories and Possessions he shall call forth a study for dissolution of the Union and Convocation of the Constitutional Convention. However, the Ammendment shall go into effect after the first session of the Convention if said convention does not overide it by then. If it has support of the Jurisdictions of all classes then the Emperor shall either sign it or submit it to two weeks of study by the Imperial Law Institute. If they find it does not effectively abolish the Monarchy, create unequal representation of States in the Senate, either elevate the lower orders to equality in the House or destroy their franchise in the House then he must sign it or abdicate with out prejudice to his House, crown office, Tribe or Line . If their report is in doubt as to any of those matters thena he may call a constitutional convention or sign it. Should the States be made unequal in the Senate, should the Monarchy lose royal nature or real executive power and tools, should lower Jurisdictions be made equal to the States or be deprived of real and effective representation in the House or should the Domestic regimes of Jurisdictions become a matter of Federal law then the Third Union must be considered dissolved. The Emperor should summon a Convention to create a new regime with or without him.
Section Four: Expansion and Complexity
Subsection One: Special Capcities, Rights and Connections
Provision One: The Emperor as Basileus Arkadios
1. The Emperor shall have varied forms of address and varied titles for varied and diverse uses and in accordance with the published protocol of the Empire and relating to the roles and offices he is fulfilling at that time. This is also secondarily true of the Empress and in ever mor derivative fashion true of varied other officials and royals of the Empire. However, his most soelmn and elevated title in the Official Language of the Empire shall be ” His Herculean and Imperial Majesty” then the name of the sovereign and his proper ordinal “the Basileus Arkadios, First and Father in Title to All Earthly Kings.”
2. The Emperor under this Constitution would necessarily be the Basileus Arkadios and the Le Roi de La Louisiane/King of Louisiana and Royal Sovreign of All the Louisianas. However he could also hold other Titles. The Empire would have varied ways to recognize for example potential treaties in which New Brunswick and Nova Scotia remained in Canda as Provinces but with a combined name of Acadie as an Official Alternate Names and The British Monarch and the Basileus as condominal heads of State. At the Founding the Emperor is an ally of the United Kingdom but the same man as Basileus has a partial and imperfect peace with the same polity. Less like but not impossible is that some ceremonial title would be recognized in France or Greece for portions of those countries with assurances fo the Emperor’s people. In all these cases these things would not automatically ammend the constitution as the Basileus is no creature of the Empire.
Subsection Two: A Larger United Sovereignty
Provision One: Older American Dominions
The posibility, particularly in war, may arise that the Organization of American States, Japan, the Philippines, Micronesia, Panama and even Cuba might negotiate some closer tie to the Union and Empire in return for more protection. This would require creting a second constitutional structure called the United Sovereignty with its own federalism, mixed government and blanced style. That also could lead to ammendments as mght be necessary but would not violate this constitution automatically. It is possible that districts created in association with the issues in the previous provision and the Empire could join with olde American Dominions in this United Sovereignty. While one country could not form such an outer circle it would not be all or nothing either. Some handful of outer groups mightform such an outer unit. A single Constitutional Ammendment should be created after the basic structure of the outer circle is created if that ever happens to regularize intergovernmental affairs but such an ammendment is not neceesary to begin the process.
Provision Two: Reunification
1. Reunification of populations of various kinds is at least a background and low level- level issue in many countries in th Faderal American Empire of the United States or the Second Union of the United States it is arguably a potential issue in hundreds of ways but there is so little civilization going on and so much propaganda and cashflow in the late Second Union that such tensions cannot be seen as such. However there are four most compelling forces in play for reunification and their is a Constitutional position on each. The others it may be simplest to say the EMpire opposes governmental reunification movements and polices but supports cultural heritage rights.
i. Reunification of British American Majority States and especially the first Thirteen with the British Commonwealth or future British Empire is the first. The Federal American Empire of the United States seeks the establishment of a variety ofies of measures to protect Biritsh American heritage but more categorically opposes this than all other forms of unity here considered. Several bloody wars and countless other acts have closed that door compltely as long as the Federal American Empire endures.
2.Reunification of some or all of the Spanish Borderlands with Mexico is the second. The Federal American Empire of the United States seeks a series the establishment of a variet of measure to protect More American heritage and would (if it could be done fairly to both sides) welcome Mexico into the outer ring of a United Sovereignty but more categorically opposes other forms of this reunification than the average case.
3.Acadian Reunification with Canadian Acadians is best considered in terms of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick under Condominial Heads of State with guranteed Bouletherion and Conclave particiaption tights for the Acadians and an Acadian Honor Guard and Governor General. Otherwise there is only delay. A betting man would know that any new EMpire no matter what it is has a less than even chance of long-term survival but without such measure a war od reunification is inevitable one day unless a war of revenge is its replacement and this constitution must not hide from that basic result being a foregone conclusion.
4. Samoan Unity is the last. The Empire favors one Samoa as a Territory. Eighteen of the seats in the Upper House of the legislature will be Chiefs and these will be two-thirds American Samoan lines and individuals. There will be two Districts of Western and American Samoa governed as separate in many ways in rights between a jurisdiction and a municipality.Each district will elect half the remaining seats in the sixty seat Upper house equally from their own five-fold nobility in a popular election. American Samoa will have two bonus seats in a forty member lower house. The Constitutional Jurisdiction Capital will be Pago-Pago. There will be Consular rights of a special order for all powers shown to have exercised a de facto portectorate in Western Samoa. The Empire will exercise pressures continuously but short of war or true coercion to make this happen. Samoa is too small to be in two countries.
Article Eleven: Agencies and Regulations
Section One: Federalism
Section Two: Imperial , Direct and Compact Agencies
Subsection One: Imperial Agencies
Provision One: The Imperial House itself.
i. Personal Ministry of the Emperor
*Chief High Concubine
A. Is the leader and governor of the High Concubines and is like them in most ways except where specified here or below. Differences not mentioned in the paragraph on High Concubines is that she has four Maids, she spends four nights each week in the accomodations beside the bedchamber, She has her own private office and all other High Concubines and Maids share a Palace office in each palace and and she has special duties in the GRIHHA.
B. She is the veto-wielding president of a coucil of the High Concubines and their maids. They receive ten percent of a set aside fund in administrative expenses and a salary not less than a tenth of their tenth divided among all of them equaly nor more than the salary of Chief Housekeeper of one of the Major Palaces in the Imperial Domestic Service Agency. This is a fund receiving one percent of all funds collected by all governments in the Empire from sexually explicit images, media and text sold as infromation or entertainment and of the taxes on prostitutes and concubines. From these funds the Chief High Concubine’s Council will maintain seven programs:
a. A Harem library of erotic texts duly censored for tone and effect but sexually explicit.
b.A Chief Concubine’s record of the Sexual relations in the reign intend to be kept secret for fifty years then revealed to a future Harem and scholars only.
c. An office supporting the Chief High Concubine Medals for excellence in non-abortive, non permanent, minimally intrusive, economical contraception especially for child spacing by the concubines of powerful men but also available to others.

g.Her Council will provide a support service for any woman having had sexual relations with the Emperor or an heir who is not a permanent consort and makes application for such services as are affordable and provided routinely.
No matter how many women there are in the Imperial Harem there should be three High Concubines. Two will spend three twenty four hour days in a normal week residing in the High Concubines quarters beside the Emperor’s bedchamber when not in the chamber. If times are not very bleak these two High Concubines who are not the Chief should each have two Maids who are also Harem consorts. The Emperor has no domestic servants in his bedchamber when he is there. Women domestic servants clean and organize it when he is not there and that is the general rule for his larger suite as well. All room related valet services are provided by these women on an ordinary schedule, They have a service port where domestic servants bring them things for themselves and the Emperor. They also handle the Emperor’s sexual schedule and dining schedul with Harem Consorts. On an average night a harem consort stays with the Emperor in bed until three in the morning unless given a special invitation and the goes to the special chamber for those leaving his bed and the High Concubine on Duty takes her place. The High Concubines only go with the Emperor to his two main palaces and always travel as a whole group except on an annual vacation for each. The Chief High Concubine has a villa near one palace and a house near the other where the children of she and her maids live with relatives and staff. The other High Concubines share a villa near one palace and a house near the other . All the High concubines live in these quarters two days and nights a week and their Maids one or two days a week at the choice of their particular High Concubine. The remaining nights they live in the Officers quarters in the Palace Seraglio site.

** Post of the Peer-Elector in Rotation Waiting upon the Emperor
*** The Emperor’s Personal Armorer
ii. Court of the Empress
*Empress’s Honor Guard
** Amazon Guard
This is an all-female guard of no great size but which is an autonomous force both fighting and ceremonial which gurads personal chambers and interior rooms of the Empress and is selected specificaly for their likelihood of preventing the gradual transformation of the Empress’s Palace or Court into a brothel for the most sjilled men in organizing covert threats at court. This is something that has happened before. They are limited in their right to the Emperor’s Presence and there are rules and rituals as regards this.
***Continuity Director for Acting and Full Empress’s Regimes
When the Emperor does not have a legitimate and sacramental wife in the Roman Catholic or Greek Orhtodox Church then the Emperor’s Mother, full legitimate sisters and full legititimate daughters may act one at a time as Empress. Half of all her income is set-aside in trust for a full Empress and her staff is reduced by half. When the Emperor names an Acting Empress from the elgible candidates he picks one at his whim to serve for two years or until he marries but he may relieve for any reasonable cause. When their is no Acting Empress or real Empress then the income set aside is two-thirds held in trust and the personal staff is reduced to two and the Successions Review Board or Inerregnum Committee manages her responsbilities.
****Secretary for the Empress’s Salon
Traditionally, the Emperor is the head of all the court and the Empress operates a court within a court. At Feasts he will stay in public late, sometimes he will retire with her to his quarters or hers on all these occasions there is no salon. On the evenings when none of these things occur but which fall into the catgory of Ordinary the Empress has a salon after the Emperor retires. She need not attend in which case her Secretary facilitates otherwise the Secretary simply assists and overssees recording. Invitations to her salon trump all other social functions remotely similar in terms of protocol.
****Empress’s Policy Cricle
The Empress will bring together an advisory panel to create her policy reports and keep her informed.
iii. Court of the Mistress of Ceremonies
* Haute Ecole des Traiteurs
There should ideally be three Haute Ecoles des Traiteurs one associated with each of the Major Crown titles of the Imperial Monarch. However, the Mistress of Ceremonies will be the regent of the Imperial Haute Ecole des Traiteurs. This instittution of limited enrollment confers on those receiving its degrees many privileges in the Direct Imperial Government Jurisdiction. It is going to take a few generations to reach complee function but it operates a generalist life-long blend of work and study for its enrollees. The top Faculty are (in English) Master Hand, Mistress Herbalist, Master Armorer, Mistress Librarian, Master Beast-Master, Mistress Domestic Arts, Master Illusionist, Mistress Inquisitor, Master or Mistress Poisoner, Master or Mistress Tongue and Master Gates and Watch. All students study and work on projects for all Masters at every one of the many levels in the school. Each of these have several subordinates able to elect those among their number to the governing council and lower ones who only occasionaly vote by lottery. The Permanent Ranked Auxillary Faculty who form the rest of the High Faculty Council are: the Mistress of Ceremonies, the Chief Ceremonial Maid of the Mistress of Ceremonies, the Master or Mistress Calendrics, the Master or Mistress Music, the Master or Mistress Maps, the Master Disguises, the Master Surgeon and the Mistress Curriculum. However, the Regent Mistress of Ceremonies is the veto-wielding President.
** The Family Established of the Mistress of Ceremonies
The Mistress of Ceremonies is to attempt to pull together her relations and organize them in as efficeint a way as possible to assist her and to preserve across at least a few generations some of the advantages gained by her post. This should be done realizing that another tie to the court of this quality is extremely unlikely for generations and yet they are not cast out as undesirable connections either. It is a unique position requiring planning. Any children she has by the Emperor will pass into her family far more than his after his death.
***The Circle of Extraordinary Mistresses
She will assemble an occasional salon of the most extraordinary second wives, plural wives and mistresses in the Empire.
**** The Ceremonial Guard
This is her own chartered ex-officio guard.
*****The Ceremonial Marshalls
These are her own ex-officio police.
******The Maids and Children’s House of the Mistress of Ceremonies

Provision Nine: The Emperor’s Office of Wastes and Ruins and the Imperial Waste Authority
1. General Constitutional Law, Power and Pupose
i. Effective Constitutional Mandate:This is the agency through which the Emperor will be most licensed and able to interfere with and affect the lives of most Citizen-Subjects. The Emperor shall have a supreme right and sovereign privilege to profit from the waste and ruins of the realm personally, in his House, in his Peers and in his Direct Imperial Government. Among the Ministers of the House there shall be a Minister of Waste and Ruins whose office shall assume other functions provided in this clause when those to whom they are assigned are unable to perform them or when such institutions may have been temporarily dissolved or abolished at the pleasure of the Emperor. The Court Architect and the Majordomos di Palazzo of the three Unity titles along with the Head of Imperial Ruins Board along with five persons appointed by the Direct Imperial Government and four persons appointed by the Emperor from among the Representatives of the House of Representatives. The Imperial Waste Authority shall have authority over all waste and shall itself establish and constitutionally govern under the pleasure of the Emperor the Imperial Waste Corporation and the Imperial Waste Authority Federation of the Constitutional Jurisdictions. While there shall be a regular review of the constitutional operation of this Imperial Waste Authority every five years which shall determine its possible undue authority and influence over matters unrelated or insufficiently related to waste it shall not conform to the general structure of our constitution as regards federal issues or the separation of powers. It shall be an agency of extremely direct and unreviewed powers to accomplish its purpose. The Imperial Waste Authority shall have a Marshall General and Marshall’s Corps to enforce its laws and regulations as well as standing in all legal matters and disputes related to waste. ”
ii. Precedent for empowering Laws and Constitutional Jurisdictions: In the formation of the totality of the new regime there will be many elements of the grand political palette which will be brought to bear on the problems and issues of the present and which will be addressed as regards the institutions of the future. The Direct Imperial Government in general will be the portion of the regime where the efforts of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the New Deal and the big government programs of Wilson and even of Lincoln. The Direct Imperial Government will be fairly compared to the corporate fascism of the Axis powers of the Second World War in some ways. However, unlike the image of those very varied examples this will be a government of both enumerated powers and enumerated agencies of theat power. The Constitution and the other founding documents and bodies must be designed and put into effect in such a way as to make clear what the balance of powers in the relatively complex regime must be. The Imperial Waste Authority must be the most in this corporate authoritarian regime of all the agencies of the Direct Imperial Government.
iii. Constitutional Jurisdictions: Every Constitutional Jurisdiction will have to pass a provision of its Constitution authorizing full cooperation and compliance with the Imperial Waste Authority and also recognizing the Emperor’s rights in Waste and Ruins. This will have to take place as part of the revolutionary founding of the new regime. In this they will specify how their delegates to the Imperial Waste Federation of Imperial Corporations will be appointed, salaried and managed.
2. The Imperial Waste Corporation
i. Founding and Organization: The Imperial Waste Corporation shall assume all contracts for waste management of any kind in which a government is involved as a party at any level at the time of this founding. The party currently contracted shall be presumed to continue in operation of the contract in one of a number of ways. All major corporations engaged in activities related to waste in the realm which wish to continue to be major actors in this industry will rewrite their corporate bylaws and articles of incorporation to conform to the new regime. They shall develop a unique three-part structure in which there shall exist under one supreme board a subsidiary of the Imperial Waste Corporation, a Conformist Division and a Competitive Division. Under Imperial Waste Authority Regulations these will each operate in different spheres of activity. All will be subject to being summoned to assist the Imperial Waste Authority in emergency response and waste related disaster response activities to a substantial degree. All such established corporations shall exchange some of their stock as demanded by a scale in the laws for Executive Stock in the Imperial Waste Corporation. All minor players, individuals and governments involved in these activities will have the opportunity and sometimes the requirement to buy Preferred Stock. By formula and law ten percent of the assets valuation of the Imperial Waste Corporation will be traded on a market (starting with the New York Stock Exchange) as Common Stock. This Corporation will have reviews by the Imperial Waste Authority which will publish an annual white paper. However, it will be able to use tax funds in some operations, to interact in unique ways with the overall authority. It shall support unique project related to Waste that are overseen and authorized by the Imperial Waste Authority.
ii. The Imperial Waste Corporation will have a set of legal provisions which recognize its unique Constitutional character and allow it to limit is status as subject tot federal regulation or lawsuit without operating entirely outside that framework and the same shall be true of the way it operated in Constitutional Jurisdictions.
iii. The Imperial Waste Corporation will also be a privileged partner of and vendor to the DIG in its various expansion and inner zones and programs.
3. The Imperial Waste Authority Proper
i. General Goals and Parameters of Operation:The goal of the Imperial Waste Authority is to operate in such a way that as much of the waste it handles as possible find its way into good and useful service which cause it not to be waste.
ii. Constitutional Power to make Crises into Windfalls: It is especially to seek to build up assets to assist in the clean-up related to events such as storms, floods, oil spills and fires which produce great waste. It cannot be sued for not participating or raising a standard but will seek to gradually raise a standard in these matters as it proceeds.
iii. Achieving Transformative Scale: The Imperial Waste Authority will seek to develop a new structure to see the varied distressed and devalued items into newly useful entities as often and as easily as possible. It will be able to access large resources from throughout the Empire for that purpose. It shall maintain an Academic Division and Library which shall accumulate and advance all technical and social knowledge and skill related to the activities in which it is engaged.
Provision Ten:The Imperial Office of Human Habitat Expansion. and The Human Habitat Expansion Agency
1. Constitutional and Legal Founding of The Human Habitat Expansion Agency
i. The Constitutional Provision Proper: Principal and most serious of all the obligations undertaken by this regime which were not undertaken by the previous constitutional order of the old republic shall be the pursuit of a realistic and careful plan which is nonetheless bold and innovative for human habitat expansion. This shall be among the Offices and Ministries of the Emperor and his Imperial House. The Direct Imperial Government however, shall play a very important role in its own right by coordinating and integrating the operations of the Imperial House, the United States Government, the governments of the Constitutional Jurisdictions and the activities of private persons and private enterprise in this endeavor of human habitat expansion. The Direct Imperial Government shall discharge these duties primarily under the auspices of the Human Habitat Expansion Agency.
ii. The HHEA and the supporting inner Office shall work mostly with and within the DIG. However, the DIG and other entities must receive the full faith anf credit of the Federal Governement and all Constitutional Jurisdictions as it operate in creating artificail island complexes, barrier peninsulas and underwater colonies as well as potential off-planet crater and othe r colonies. The work of the HHEA is one of the principal bases of legitimacy for the vast resources commanded by maintaining an effective large empire.
iii. The Direct Imperial Government Civil Code will have extensive language for the detailed operation of this agency and the Ferderal Governement and the Constituional Jurisdictions will in general give them such permissive allowance as our Federal system requires. However, there is one areas where the working rise to enter this constitution. All the governments in the EMpire shall take cognizance of and give due support to the basic structure of creating the colonies which are the units of expansion.
2. Colonies: The Logistics of Starting Up and Operating them
1. The HHEA shall be a bond issuing authority overseen by the Imperial Services Operating Treasury. All governments in the Empire must offer their financail infrastucture to support these projects as duly operating bond sales.
2. License Fees shall be payable in advance. Colonial contractors duly regulated and licensed by the DIG shall be given the freedom to advertise the construction of colonies to recruit workers and colonists and to purchase and sell materials essential to the proper completion of such projects.
3. In some case the Imperial Waste Authority will pay advanced fees for storage of certain scheduled materials.All governments must cooperate in the safe transit of such materials throught their jurisdictions into the very long-term storage in the colonies being constructed.
4. The HHEA will receive one percent of DIG revenues every year outside the regular budget process of the DIG Legislature. It will invest a third in a Trust and spend the rest in annual operations. This Trust shall have preferred status in contracting wwith governments for the development of colonies near to and related with their lands and waters as long-term projects.
5.The HHEA will receive funds as may be allocated by the DIG.All governments dealing with the colonial projects must thmeselve find ways to cooperate which are protective of their economies from the cyclical nature of Legislative spending.
Provision Eleven: The Personal, Household and Direct Imperial Military Institutions.
1.This Constitution merely alludes briefly to the vastly rich and complex set of Institutions, Laws and Customs that are at the heart of the DIG. Those are the most royalist, personal and House-oriented entities. There will be many institutions and zones and several agencies in the DIG which are set up to work and interface smoothly with the Federal Government and the Constitutional Jurisdictions whenever possible. However in the heart of all this lies a different set of operations with a different agenda. The larger Constitution must accept the outer DIG as a buffer around the inner DIG. There will be areas where these institutions project power and policy into the Empire as a whole and where that occurs they shall also be susceptible to a constitutional response but not to intereference in their internal workings.
2. The Domestic fiefdoms are to be serviced largely by Inner Imperial Agencies and where such agencies are available and amenable to work they shall take precedence over other agenices other governments.
3. Physical access to Domestic areas of the DIG Jurisdiction shall not be an ordinary right of Citizen-Subjects and less so of non-Citizens. Where access is readily accorded to such areas entry will effect a waiver of many rights and acceptance of many obligations as well as the acquisition of some new rights compared to physical presence elsewhere in the Empire. The liability for ignorance and responsibility for knowledge of such changes in law shall rest almost entirely on those entering such Domestic areas. However, the Inner Imperial Agencies will be responsible to assist in this adjustment and transfer of information.
Provision Twelve: The Imperial Services Agency.
1. The Imperial Services Agency will coordinate sevices of all Imperial agencies whoch are both optional and open to the public to the degree that those agencies are willing to be so assissted. This agency will also coordinate several divisions of its own which are not part of other agencies these may be created by Act of The DIG Legislature Confirmed by the GRIHHA so long as they do not exceed by five or more those enumerated in this Constitution:
2. Enumerated Agencies:
i. The Imperial Transport and Transit Service
ii. The Imperial Aristocratic and Noble Titles Procurement Service
iii. The Imperial Scheduled Substances Recreational Casinos Program.
iv. The Imperial Integrated Commercial Hospitality Service
v. The Imperial Wilderness Rangers
Provision Thirteen: The Imperial Wellness Agency.
1. Obligatory Coordination and Cooperation

Two mil of all FICA revenues and small fee of say $5.00 collected from everyone entering the Union and Empire for the first time and one dollar for every entry thereafter would be devoted exclusively to this IWA. The IWA would have various chartering regimes for Community Clinics being especially generous to those already existing in getting Agency approval. ii. The IWA would have a subagency devoted to collecting, inspecting and dating unused medicines from institutions and deceased persons and would distribute them to Community Clinics.

Every physician who received federal or Imperial financial aid or lived in a DIG Jurisdiction would be required to spend one day for every thousand dollars of Federal or Imperial loans and five days for every thousand dollars of Federal Imperial grants working for an approved Community Clinic after basic medical school graduation and before any extended residency or specialty training. The Imperial Wellness Agency would oversee this program.
iii. The Imperial Wellness Agency would receive a dedicated tax of two mil of every health and life insurance premium collected in the United States. This money would largely (but not exclusively) pay for a coordination program linking Community Clinics to school nurses, fitness centers, foodbanks, shelters, eldercare and daycare facilitites as well as other community institutions.iii. The Community Clinics would have hours reserved for only those invested in the clinic or owning cheap Community Clinic Insurance which would be available to all including fugitive felons and illegal aliens on confidential basis.

They would also offer a lottery for additonal services not available or very scarce in such programs. This Constitution sahll require that no company or pool of any kind may sell health insurance anywhere in the Empire or Union unless it offers a package designed to supplement Community Clinic Insurance. Such insurances shall be free market so long ast they are real, not fraudulent and the Insurance Guilds and industry as a whole sell a large number of such policies. These same companies may prefer and sell ground up polices not using this service as well. The IWA would also interface in its lottery and elswhere with research institutions, charity hospitals and other players. These agencies would also be required to dedicate at least one percent of the value of Federal funds received to the network of deserving cases. vi. The Imperial Wellness Agency would train community workers in churches, clubs and sports leagues and sponsor nutrition, hygiene and other programs. This activity would be paid for in large part by a one mil tax on the wholesale and a one percent tax on the retail of all prescribed pharmaceuticals. These community workers would be trained to transport persons needing care to the Community Clinics. Clinics would work with other nonprofit organizations of all types to create medical transport with donated vehicles and other assets.
vii. Emergency Rooms and Ambulances would be required to give some triage preference to those coming from Community Clinics over those coming from the open street and to those with Community Clinic Insurance to those with no insurance.
viii. Corporations which sponsored a Community Clinic would receive a Wellness Program Support Package from the IWA tied to their level of support.
