Regional Government Overview

Government system summary: The Confederacy operates on a meritocratic promotion system under the rule of the Founder CAS Revival who is also the Chairman.

But it is a government system where opportunities are provided and those that do well are given promotions. The current iteration of the system is new however, and so the Regional Government factbook is being continually edited, so it may be constantly subject to occasional edits and updates.

As well as for other reasons related to new positions and appointments. The government operates under a unique system of a government with a supreme head being the Chairman and the operational leader being the President. With "Secretaries' then in charge of specific function and appointing officers to help them with that.

The positions are not so out of reach to most, and anyone can apply to potentially be apart of the government, although acceptance is not guaranteed: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/11QKOPLddCLfRwP3f1B58LpSsFicjntskIwn0jGjvdYM/viewform?edit_requested=true

The Cabinet of Regional Affairs are the people in charge of the oversight and administration of regional functions. It's job includes the supervising, assistance, and advisement in matters of regional affairs. To regulate regional behavior and punish misbehavior, and to oversee the security of the region. As well as suggestions and policies to improve the region. Though role varies depending on function of each specific Cabinet member.

In terms of all regional authority, the Chairman's, Vice-Chairman's, and Presidents word is law.

CAS Government

The Confederacy operates on a meritocratic promotion system. Where opportunities are provided and those that do well are given promotions. The Regional Government is being overhauled so there is currently no factbook yet.

Roleplaying

CAS is a roleplaying region. Roleplaying has many forms from the Final Fantasy games to Skyrim to D&D. CAS participates mostly in D&D like RPs that we create ourselves. These RPs are called Nation RPs, where players roleplay as a specific nation within a determined time period.

The region hosts one major RP every year called the Regional Canon. These RPs are created by the Canon Staff and take months of work to develop strong game mechanics.

Roleplaying is a great way to improve strategic and writing skills (especially English). Nation RPs are extremely taxing as players must learn a variety of different topics in order to optimize their nations. From economic theory to military strategy to political tact. CAS RPs cover them all.

Link to the CAS Canon can be found HERE


Discord

CAS has a regional discord where members are free to discuss and chat about a variety of topics. Join the server LinkHERE

META

All channels under Meta act as a hub for the server. New members enter the region and must fill out the information in #vetting-instructions before access is granted. This is to prevent raids on the server. #announcements is where all region wide notifications will be posted. If there is a post there it is important.

General

General hosts a variety of different channels for members to talk in. Members of the region frequently discuss politics and ideologies or random news. Sometimes mods ask questions for the region to answer.

Gaming

We also have channels for members to discuss other games. We have game-makers as a channel for players to put together games.

Roleplaying

These channels all pertain to roleplaying activities. Whether in the region or elsewhere. This is where a lot of Out of Character (OOC) discussion happens for the Regional Canon. Furthermore each faction in the Regional Canon is given its own private server that only the members and the mods can see.

Government Hall

While hidden from most members, the server of course is where the secretaries and officers discuss regional affairs and make decisions.


Officers of DoH

Secretary

The Secretary of DoH nominates regional members into Chief Officer and Officer roles. The Secretary works to make sure that the DoH runs properly as the High Command wants. Furthermore the Secretary is to report all information necessary to the High Command.

Chief Officer

The Chief Officer is the second in command for the DoH. Their main job is to oversee the officers. The Chief Officer determines the schedule for when officers are required to be overseeing the region and discord for new members.

Officers

Officers greet and welcome new members into the region. They also provide individuals with general knowledge if requested. They are to also work with other departments to make sure that any forms or news are disseminated properly among the region. Besides typical social activities, they are also responsible for moderating both the discord server and the region as a whole.
