    Preamble - Pending Approval Poll Passed
    Code:
    Preamble
    	We, the people of $COUNTRY_NAME, in order to create an atmosphere of 
    	friendship, cooperation, and pride, establish this Constitution of our 
    	beloved country. We uphold the beliefs that each citizen must 
    	have an equal voice in the government and ruling of our country, 
    	that government itself is a construct of and servant to the people,
    	that rules, regulations, and laws should be established to 
    	facilitate the active participation of the people and to make 
    	possible the dreams and desires of the citizens.
    
    Polls, Amendments and Quorum - Pending Approval Poll Passed
    1. All polls shall be public except those types of polls which are specifically designated by law as being required to be private.
    2. The following types of polls, which have the purpose of choosing and/or judging individuals, shall be private.
      • Elections
      • Polls confirming or denying appointments
      • Polls to determine guilt or innocence.
      • Polls to determine sentencing
    3. Only registered citizens are authorized to vote in polls. The results of public polls may be checked against the citizen registry, and votes by people who are not registered may be deducted from the poll results. Any citizen may challenge the result of a private poll by requesting the moderators to verify citizenship of all persons voting, and adjust the vote totals accordingly.
    4. Amendments to the constitution require (a 2/3 majority of all votes cast), or (a simple majority of all votes cast and a number of votes cast more than 60% of the census). The census is the lesser of the average number of votes cast for all offices in the most recent election, or 80% of the number of votes cast in the most recent ratification vote, or 80% of the votes cast in a quorum vote called for the purpose of establishing a true census.
