14: Government (democracy, communist, monarchy, hybrid?)
A Constitutional Monarchy.
The monarch to have the power of veto over any laws passed by the parliament, the parliament to be elected by the common people once every five years, with the monarch having a power of veto over the appointment of a prime minister. The Monarch's veto can, in turn, be overturned by referendum. In practice it is envisaged that the monarch's role will be largely ceremonial.
The first elections were held in 1992, after the interim government were satisfied that the correct mechanism was in place to ensure the elections were , and would be seen to be, "Free and fair".
There was some violence and some intimidation in outlying villages, but by and large the result was constitutional, and the parliament was formed.
However, the post of Regent was held by a cousin of the last known heir to the throne.
The Island was, until the Japanese invaded, an absolute monarchy, ruled by an hereditary dynasty. The last king, Zan'ang XIV
, and his wife Cho Lu, were executed by the Japanese for refusing to bow to the Emperor of Japan. Their son Mi'Ting was smuggled out of the country and grew up in Australia, kept in ignorance of who he was in order to protect him, should Japan invade Australia.
Mi'Ting's cousin Jo'Nan survived the war on a paddy farm, his parents collaborating with the Japanese in order to survive. When the search began for the new Monarch, he was quickly discovered and offerd the crown, but being in his seventies with no offspring, he declined and said he would act as regent until the true heir could be found.
Moraline dear, I'm going to stop there, and pose the following:Name the three main political parties in the parliament (and only ONE of them can be either "Republican" or "Democrat" or have either or boh of those words in it's name). Which party is currently in power and who is Prime Minister?The heir to the thrown has just been located in an Australian high school. who is it?
If you want, I will create the heir, but it's going to cause a constitutional crisis if I do, so it might be better if someone straight did so? *giggles*
