The Holy Roman Empire was an electoral monarchy.
the situations are very different though, to be like the HRE you need electors and the question is: who will appoint them if there is no Emperor
also the nobility might works differently between Western Europe and Greece as the Eastern Roman Empire was pretty centralized around its Basileus while the feudal western european states were, by definition, feudal but we better ask Byzantine Empire 5's Senate
Ah, I didn't read the context post for Byzantine, I just posted about the HRE as an example.
But yeah best to ask.
The Modified ULC has finished being developed and will be mounted on the M3 Elemento the jet will carry the conventional guns as well as the Modified ULC Hypersonic and supersonic missiles are also to be mounted on the Jet, with 2,000 set to be produced costing the military $380 billion
The military will also be expanded to 1.8 million personnel 1.5 million in active personnel and 300,000 in reserve, in this military expansion 8 divisions of Light infantry will be trained The CPS will add another $50 billion to the yearly military budget of Oileron one, the citizens are assured that the Oileron armed forces is a purely volunteer army and no conscription shall be enacted
The 20,000 soldiers from Algamonzimt that were sent to Oileron one have been received at a military base in the mountains 2,000 training instructors will train the soldiers with a ration of 1:10 the zimtians will be trained the way the krest division has been trained, weighted body armor will be given to the soldiers and are required to wear it during the training, AI operation will also be taught, flexible leadership structures and the Mosaic doctrine shall also be taught the AI battle simulators will also be used to train, as well a martial arts, the training will take 1 year and 6 months in this time they will be taught what the krest division is taught
The Federation Africaine's Aerial Force is stablished, centered around the old own aircraft from previous military ownership in the territories the federation now resides.
The Republics of Congo and Kivu are relegated to states, as there is no necessity for them to carry the title and additional freedoms of a Republic within the federation, the governors of these areas, being loyal to Celso, have acceded to these changes.
French is began to be taught in the Republic of Uganda, limiting the local language to private use only effective in 10 months from now. The Local people will be given instruction by French teachers, and they will be given the materials needed for the learning of this language. (the population is small there, around 47k after people began traveling to the Capital of Bujumbara for opportunities. Muhanga being depopulated after they have probably moved into the Kuku Republic. they were like 11k)
I mean, I don't know much about how the Byzantine senate worked, but was the Byzantine Senate allowed irl to do that stuff?
Could be also as Crowned Republic...
*caugh* yeah, sure, the Emperors won't try to reestablish an absolute Monarchy. They are fully trustworthy....
Well I didn't know the Eastern Roman Empire had a Senate....but now Byzantine said, it's obvious, even the Roman Empire kept the Senate of the Republic so why not the Eastern one.
I don't really know the Senate's Power
I suppose it can still plot to put their candidate at the throne.
The Clergy can certainly do that to.
Also the people can also elect an Emperor I suppose but they could be influenced by the Senate or the Clergy, or they could just change the results of the vote.
Plus, being Emperor is such a dangerous post, everything wants to kill you (even worse that being French President), you rule a country threatened by its neighbour and certainly highly indebted but, hey, at least you have a nice crown, don't mind the blood of your predecessors.
This is what happen when you don't have highly precised succession laws like in the western european (and American) monarchies
also Salxeburg, may I ask how you are the German Kaiserreich and the Holy Roman Empire at the same time?
is the HRE part of the German Empire or are they two different entities?
how it works is simple:
If the king dies with a male heir then there's nothing the senate can do, unless there's a way too big problem that the senate might need to intervene. Although like always, the Patriarch of Constantinople can just not crown the emperor, which means that god doesn't approve so the senate will discuss who should be the successor which god will approve of.
If the its a female, the senate will have to discuss it. If the woman is approved by the senate the Patriarch also has a say on it (like always) and if he thinks god will approve of an Empress, coronated she is, if god doesn't approve, she isn't coronated. Which will lead to the same process, discuss a male sucessor that god will approve of
And if there's no heir, again, discuss a male successor, approval of the senate, the patriarch of Constantinople picks if he should coronate him, if he doesn't the senate will blah blah blah you get the point
as for the hole existance of the senate. It existed... on paper. The senate was somewhat relevant during the early Byzantine Emperor, after Justinian the senate just declined in strength, it sometimes did some important decissions (specially during the 4th Crusade). But by the 14th century the senate very likely no longer existed (from what I know) but that was super late Byzantine period so yea the senate existed for nearly the entire existance of the Empire.
As for what the ''modern'' Byzantine senate does. Being a senator is mostly a ceremorial title, I don't know I've ever said anything related to the power of the senate but in short: 1. Advisor role to the Emperor 2. Decissions not too important for the Basileus (like if they should build a highway in X) 3. Succession crisis 4. Make laws (which the emperor then has to approve) and thats really the most important things it does.
And as for that thing of the ''Dangerous post'', is that supposed to be a reference to me? Specially the hole ''threatened by its neighbour'' and ''highly indebted''.
(also dear lord, I forgot to send this message like 9/8 years ago, thank god I just remembered)
Well Emperor of the Romans is a dangerous post, the plots and the coup are dangerous for your health as usually in a plot or a coup, weapons are involded
indebted, well all your wars and war reparation can't have let your economy intact and have certainly put you indebted
and Ramalia is indeed a threat as he and his dominion of Turkey are your only neighbours and Ramalia wants to united the Balkans as he said, so that's a big threat for you
Well, the good thing is that usually Emperors don't get killed by the pretenders, although the outcome usually isn't very good. It involves things which will not lead to the ex-Basileus not getting killed but will ''completely'' make them stay away from the throne or any important position. And no isolating them isn't the answer, it usually involves. 1. Getting blinded 2. Getting your tongue cut off 3. Getting your nose cut off. So yea while you wont die (or maybe depends if the wounds are very severe and not treated) you probably will live very unhappily. Because again, killing somebody god approved of being emperor isn't usually seen as ''good''
About debts, while it is true, the economy has been somewhat recovering.
And for Ramalia, well the truth is that as long as I have the ARU on my back (as I don't expect getting betrayed by it... at least not yet) I don't think Ramalia is, at all, a major threat. Besides, he should still take care of his Greek minorities in Europe and Anatolia (although at this point its only the Aegean Coast and Pontus that I would assume still have decent amount of Greek populations) because undeniably, these minorities prefer me over Ramalia. However, I don't want to use them yet, at least not yet.
If y'all see me gradually going inactive doesn't I will. It is just the workloads I am facing.
State Of War
(translated from french)
Throughout the few months that this government has been in charge, We do acknowledge that does not give us the right to demand from the people of our own country. BUT, we do also acknowledge, that with the increasing power of outside nations, and the Neo-Colonialism, we are not safe anymore split. We need Africa to be united under a sole banner. We can see examples such as both Valencia and Emastalia with their colonies in Africa, a land in which they do not have the right to be poking their noses into! We can also see the same thing outside of Africa, Just look at the vast empire of Algamonzimt!
I am hurt, to even think of this, but desperate times call for desperate measures. And these ARE DESPERATE TIMES! Our country to the east, the Victorian Lake union, enjoying of the grace that is brought from not having to worry, because they do not care! They have forgotten our ancestors, great warriors that defended our homelands from those imperialistic nations! To be able to stand against a big enemy, we have to unite, to be under a sole strong catholic leader! To be able to defeat the people from the outside, we first need to take care of the people from within, that the only thing that they do, is rejoice in their false sense of security. I therefore have enacted the rights that have been given to me by the provisional constitution of the African Federation, to Formally declare war on the Nation of The Victorian Lake Union.
approximately 10 minutes after the end of the transmission, various explosions are heard throughout the Victorian Lake Union, War has begun, and the soldiers, tanks and artillery begin to roll into ours righteous territory.
Just one thing. I will not actually be here today, this post is supposed to be for tomorrow, so the war won't start till then.
Iíll suppress for tomorrow then
Oops. Didnít mean to do that.
But right now, Iím working on publishing factbooks for two things. 1: An expanding war mechanics fact sheet and 2: a new ďfallen empiresĒ mechanic set for nations such as Onaea, Aragren, etc. or any nation we think is either A: a ďfounding memberĒ or B: contributed significantly to the RP some way or another. Pretty much, how the preservation of their nation will incorporate into the everyday business of the RP. Expect these by the end of the day, Iím busy right now.
But this is an example of the subjugation Casus Belli, as Iím going to be expanding on the role of those. Convenient that an example is right in front of me.
The Tsar, seeing that his enemies have United and are supported by the French, withdraws troops from the border.
Rus-Duholm also secedes from the United Kingdoms and the territories owned by the Rus become their own independent kingdom under the Tsar.
This does not mean hostilities have ceased, as the Rigans will want to reclaim their territory, and the Tsar will likely continue to pursue his goal of unification.
"The Ramalian Leader would request that peace talks be held or that if a civil war is inevitable that Ramalia Shanatopian Citizens in the nation be allowed to leave the nation/s"
I'm now guessing nearly
2 decades later,I think I have no homeless people ngl
Yeah. If you dedicated yourself to the project, you probably got it done some time ago.
Ngl The Greater Israeli State being in The Kyiv Pact kind of complicating my plans and limiting my ability to become the middle eastern super power. Though I guess Iíll find a way to work around it.
Now that is done,I shall list current and future projects:
1.Football Academy,Stadium and training project
Status:Passed Through Parliament with 1 MP voting against
Due to Ramalia exiting the World Cup in which it hosted,the nation has taken measures to create a National Academy,State Academies,Modern Football Training with the latest technology and new Stadiums which will be government held for a undetermined amount of time.
There will be 7 New Stadiums,5 of which will be available for World Cups and Premier League Matches,the other 2 being Stadiums for youth training,
There will be a National Academy in which the best from State Academies (see below) train and get government supported agents for their careers in the World.
State Academies will be Academies for the States in which the 1st Minister of the State Runs in most cases,this is one of the best ways for youth players and talent to get spotted.
Finally Modern Football Training will be new technology in which Football Players in Ramalia's Academies will use when ready to increase players abilities.
Cost:Up to 500 Billion
Years to make: 2 For Stadiums,Academies,5 for Technology.
