New Pannonia wrote:Hello!
What do you think about this political system?
New Pannonia is a constitutional monarchy with a King as its head of state. The King is selected based on primogeniture, without preference to any gender.
The role of the King is mostly ceremonial. He is the commander in chief, and he can (but is not obligated to) declare wars and sign peace treaties if initiated by Parliament. He may sanction laws passed by Parliament, send them to the Constitutional Court, send them back to Parliament for reconsideration, initiate a referendum, or use his postponement veto (valid until the next general election in the Lower House/seat rotation in the Upper House). Each of the above actions can be only done once for each law. He may propose laws to Parliament.

The deputy of the King is the Palatine, chosen by the King single-handedly. He has all rights of the King except war declarations and peace treaties. The King may overturn decisions made by the palatine within 30 days of the decision being made or until the decision takes effect.

New Pannonia is made up of 120 principalities. Principalities are highly autonomous, but laws passed by the central Government have priority over laws passed by the principalities. Each principality has a Prince as its head of state. The Princes are elected for life by the electorate of each principality. The Council of Princes (consisting of the 120 Princes and the King) may give the King absolute power in times of crisis, but has to revise its decision every six months, and Parliament or the Constitutional Court may overturn the decision. The Council may also propose laws to Parliament. The principalities also have their own governments and legislatures.

The Parliament of New Pannonia consists of two chambers. The Upper House represents the nobility and has 550 representatives. The seats rotate between noble families every 5 years.
The Lower House represents commoners and has 1500 representatives. They are elected by commoners every 3 years. The seats are awarded using a mixed-member proportional system, with the election districts providing 2/3 of the MPs. Each district elects 5-10 MPs using instant-runoff voting.
All laws must be passed by both houses to pass. Changes to the constitution require a supermajority of 61.8% in each house to pass.

The Prime Minister and his Government is elected every four years directly by the citizens. Their task is solely to run the country based on the laws passed by other legislative bodies. The Government may propose laws to Parliament.

The Constitutional Court consists of 15 judges, with three being chosen by the King, by the Council of Princes, by the Upper House, the Lower House and directly by the electorate. Their task is to monitor if laws passed are in accordance with the Constitution. Any citizen or resident may initiate the revision of a law.

Any citizen may initiate a referendum on any law excluding reelections, human and civil rights and duties, or the abolition of monarchy. A signature of the petition by at least 1% of the population, but no more than 100,000 people is required. The same proposal cannot be submitted within three years of the original proposal. The results of a referendum can only be changed by another referendum for the first 10 years following the original one. There is no participation requirement. Changes to the constitution require a supermajority of 61.8% to pass.

All elections and referendums are held on the first Sunday of March or September.

All of the above titles may be held by any gender. Only male titles and personal pronouns are used in the above text for simplicity.

Read factbook

So you have a constitutional monarch that chooses his own deputy head of state, and has 120 elected life princes beneath him to fulfill the constitutional arrangements of the 120 principalities which are organised in a highly federal manner - If those princes were his children that'd be one busy King! - I suppose them being elected is only to prevent the King's only role from being forced to mass produce princes! - One would feel sorry for any Queen in that arrangement!

Each principality has 4.5 Nobles; or Lords and Ladies, per principality (it's uncertain how you have half a noble, or how much use they'd be), to represent them in the Upper House - 550 Nobles seems excessive to me.

Each principality has 12.5 elected representatives and members of the Lower House or 'Commons' per principality, whilst you say each district elects less than that according to proportional representation (and again we have the problem of how you have half a representative or MP in this case) - 1500 MPs also seems pretty excessive to me.

The text of the description of your political system seems to indicate and suggest a vastly bloated system that would be clogged by massive bureaucracy, and open to collapse under the burden of that vastly bloated state.

They should be encouraged to come back, right?

Honestly, this low activity isn't so bad. I think I'm actually starting to like this silence a little bit.

I guess it's up to them on what they want to do, but that'll leave those who are still staying here out to dry.

I came to this region because it was called Europe, but afterwards the community seemed great to me, I don't plan to leave Europe while you, Champions and almost everyone stays.

I myself haven't been saying much on the RMB due to my work with the football story.
