It has been evident in the last few days that we have very few citziens. The modern day Constitution was made before the Gamecatcher War, when we had many more citizens. Now that we have only a few ctizens our goverment has become inoperative due to having to fill 6 positions. Inactive officals again has become a problem. Due to these many reasons, I am proposing a new Constitution. The Proposed Constitution of Fanatikou Article A All Civfanatics Forum users who register in the Citizen Registry are citizens of Fanatikou. Citizens have the right to assemble, the right to free movement, the right to free speech, the right to a fair trial, the right to representation, the right to demand satisfaction and the right to vote. Article B Governing rules shall consist of the Articles of the Constitution Article C The Government of Fanatikou shall consist of the fallowing offices: 1.

He sets foreign policy with other nations, and participates in diplomatic relations. 2. Counsel of Domestic Affairs The Counsel of Domestic Affairs plays the turn for Fanatikou. He/she manages all production and all non-military units. The Minster takes orders from other offices on where to move units that are not under his control. The Minister is also in change of connecting luxuries and other resources that are to be used for Fanatikou itself or for trade. He/she is also in charge of all of the nations scientists. The Counsel, upon recommendation of other public officials, decides what is to be researched. 3.

In the case of a national emergency, the Emperor or Counsel of Foreign Affairs may sign a treaty making it binding for all of Fanatikou. However, should the First Counsel (acting as Chief Justice) find that it was not an emergency; the signer shall be persecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Article L The First Counsel, when acting as Chief Justice, may persecute any citizen. Any citizen can bring another citizens to court.
