    at any rate its very easy to define the provinces, all we have to do is include the sentence "Provinces must contain X cities/tiles"

    No the number of cities vs number of tiles argument belongs in the in-game debates on the provincial borders. I was just saying that we may have an undefined term "province".

    Code:
    Article O
    [indent]
    The area contained within the cultural boundaries of [country name] shall
    be divided into areas called provinces, each of which is under the
    control of a Governor as stated elswhere in this Constitution.  The
    boundaries dividing such provinces shall be set as determined by the
    congress, and may extend beyond the cultural boundaries.
    [/indent]

    Except for that "rs" it looks good. Although I don't know if it's needed.

    Had to throw that spelling inaccuracy in there. ;)

    Ooops! You already edited it out. :(

    Proposed Article E Poll:

    Code:
    Article E. Legislative Branch
    
    The Legislative Branch will be formed of two houses. 
          1.The Council of Governors will be formed of the Provincial Governors. 
             Each of whom is responsible for the care, management, use of 
             the cities, and use of lands of a province through the setting of build 
             queues, allocation of labourers on tiles, population rushes and drafting 
             of soldiers. The Council's primary purpose is to encourage cooperation  
             between the Provincial Governors and to encourage cooperation  
             between the Council and the Executive Branch.
               a.Each Governor shall determine any policies and procedures needed 
                 to carry out their duties.
           2.The Congress will be formed of the entirety of the  citizenry and is 
              responsible for the drafting of new Laws.

    The article looks workable as is.

    But personally, I would junk the whole Senate/Council of Governors as a formal gov't bady into a more unofficial co-orination body. But as I said, its workable.

    The purpose is to ensure efficiency, one place for Leaders to post requests of governors, and one place for Governors to deal with claims over tiles. Granted it isn't as necciary at the begaining when we have just 1 Province, but when we have 3+ Provinces it will be VERY helpful essential.
