a) e^iπ+1=0 is the King. The King has absolute power, with the exception of being bound by the following rules.
b) The king shall keep an ordered list of citizens, which must include anyone who has posted since the last court and may include anyone who has ever posted in this thread. Names are added to the bottom of the list. The citizen at the top of the list is known as the Honourable Citizen.
c) Some citizens are nobles, and shall be noted as such by having their names emboldened on the list. The king may only award or remove noble status as allowed by the law.
a) The Kingdom of Munroevia measures 50 quarterlands of fine land, which is apportioned among the nobles as their counties. It is never split into smaller parts than quarterlands.
b) The Monarch shall keep a list of each noble's land entitlement, and may change these entitlements when holding court. Only nobles may own land, but vassals may rule part of a noble's land for them as their fiefdom.
c) The Monarch does not hold any land apart from their Palace, the Capital city and the immediate surrounding area, which shall be regarded as the Monarch's county for the purposes of all references in law to a citizen's county or fiefdom. The size of this land is static and has no bearing on the Monarch's ability or right to rule.
a) Court shall be held at least once a month but no more than three times a week.
b) Court is held for one day and may not be held again for a clear day after the ending of the last session.
c) The Monarch holds court by declaring "The court is now in session".
d) Court order proceeds in the following manner;
i) The Monarch examines the proportion of citizens who have declared themselves in favour of and against each petition, with regard to the proportion of land they control.
ii) The votes of nobles are weighted according to the total size of their county, including any fiefdoms within them. The votes of vassals are weighted according to the size of their fiefdoms.
iii) If the proportion of land in favour is found to make up greater than 2/3 of the votes, the Monarch is bound to pass the petition into law and/or act as required by said petition's terms.
iv) If the proportion of land in favour is found to make up less than 1/4 of the votes, the Monarch may not pass the petition into law or otherwise act upon it.
v) The Monarch now signs and publishes the revised law of the land.
vi) The monarch now publishes a link to the wiki, preferably in bold or something to make it stand out a bit.
vii) The Monarch may now reapportion the land among the nobles. E then publishes the list of all citizens, which includes who is a noble and all nobles' land entitlement. A noble holding land may not have his holdings reduced to less than 1 quarterland. A Noble not owning any land may be removed from the ranks of nobility. A vassal ruling a fiefdom of at least 5 quarterlands can, if their master has given their agreement, be ennobled receiving their previous fiefdom as their county. If a noble's county is reduced to smaller that the total size of the fiefdoms within it, those vassals within the county with the largest fiefdoms shall have their fiefdoms turned into counties until this problem is resolved.
e) One day after Court was declared it closes.
f) Stance is declared in a manner such that it is unambiguous as to a citizen's support of the petition.
g) Citizens who do not wish to support a petition may abstain or declare their objection to it.
a) The name of this kingdom is Munroevia.
a) A citizen who is not a vassal or a noble may become the vassal of any noble by accepting an offer of a fiefdom from a noble and swearing them an Oath of Fealty. They are then granted the specified amount of land as their fiefdom.
b) A noble may have their land divided among several vassals, and may keep parts of it under their personal rule.
c) Nobles may tax their vassals in any way they so choose.
d) A vassal may break their oath and give up their fief at any time, in order to solicit offers from nobles for a new fiefdom. A noble may release a vassal from their service, causing em to cease to be a vassal, at any time.
e) Nobles may trade land between them freely. If a noble's county size decreases so that their vassals cannot rule as much land as they used to, the noble is responsible to reapportion their land as soon as possible. Neither the noble nor their vassals can vote until this has been done.
f) Vassals to the same noble may trade land between them.
g) The King should not without good reason change the land entitlement of two nobles who have traded land between them.
a) If a noble is removed from the list of citizens, their county is transferred to the citizen e has named as their successor. If that citizen is not a noble, all their previous Oaths are voided and e is ennobled. If such a citizen does not exist, the citizen who has been the former noble's vassal for the longest time is appointed. If no such vassal exists, the Monarch shall appoint a citizen when next holding court.
b) If a vassal is removed from the list of citizens, their fiefdom is returned to the noble.
a) Any Citizen may pen a petition when court is not in session. However, a petition is not official until it has been signed by a Noble or powerful vassal who is willing to put eir fame and standing behind the suggested changes. A posted petition indicated as finished by its writer may be signed by anyone controlling at least 5 quarterlands; this person is thereafter known as its Grantor. When a petition is passed, its Grantor is moved one step upwards on the list of citizens; when it is rejected e is moved one step downwards.
a) The national flag is to be changed the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month.
i) A list of potential flag candidates is to be kept at http://myexactthoughts.com/nomic/index. ... Candidates
ii) All flags are to be based upon the template at http://myexactthoughts.com/nomic/index. ... a_flag.svg
iii) Every second and fourth Tuesday of the month, Keldran shall choose that flag from the list of candidates which most tickles his fancy. He shall than upload a 100 pixel wide copy of that image to http://myexactthoughts.com/nomic/index. ... t_flag.png
. This now becomes the flag of the arbitrary time period.
a) The wiki is located at http://myexactthoughts.com/nomic/
b) The wiki should be kept up to date with the current version of the law.
a) There exist a number of resources. They are gold, wood, stone, ore, and soldiers, and are all measured in units. All citizens may hold resources. Resources can be traded freely with the consent of both parties.
b) Resources are gained from holding land. All territories are regarded as equal, and the number of quarterlands (ql) held determine what resources are gained. If a resources Value is x, then every x ql owned by the same vassal produce one unit of that resource. Resource values are as follows:
The vassal, if any, owning a fiefdom may once per calendar week collect these resources.
c) Nobles may tax their vassals if they notify them and post the resources to be paid between one and three days before. All vassals to the same Noble must always be asked to pay the same tax, and at least one of them must at the time of the notice have enough resources available. The Monarch may in the same manners tax all Nobles. The exception is the Honourable Citizen, who may not be taxed by anyone.
d) A citizen failing to have the right amount of resources available when taxes are collected may be punished by eir master to a certain degree. The Monarch may strip a Noble of eir title if the failure to pay is considered great enough.
e) All citizen's holdings are to be kept on the wiki on the following url: http://myexactthoughts.com/nomic/index. ... 9;s_Office
Whenever anyone takes an action that changes any holding, such as collecting weekly gains, accepting a trade proposal or taxing a subordinate, e must change the wiki to reflect the change. The action is not completed until the wiki has been changed accordingly.
a) Soldiers are a resource, but have other uses besides trading. A Noble may assault another's county, and count on eir vassals to defend eir own.
b) When soldiers change owners as part of a trade or taxation, unlike other transactions they do not arrive until an hour later. They may not be used for anything or traded away until they have arrived.
a) A Noble may use eir soldiers to launch an assault on a region of another Noble's county. Each vassal's fiefdom is a separate region, and the remaining land (if any) is known as the free lands of that Noble.
b) When the free lands of a noble are assaulted, the soldiers start subduing the local populace. This costs one soldier per quarterland (ql), up to a maximum of five ql in a single assault. This land is then owned by the attacking Noble.
c) When the fiefdom of a vassal is assaulted, a battle is fought. This causes soldiers to die. A number of factors may modify the number of casualties, to a minimum of one soldier on each side. If one side has more soldiers than the other, the weaker force loses an extra soldier. If the stronger side has more than double the amount of soldiers, the weaker loses yet another soldier. Same for triple, quadruple and so on. If a side is to lose more soldiers than it has, they simply all die.
d) If all soldiers on the defending side die, the soldiers start subduing the local populace as described in b). If all soldiers on the attacking side die, the assault is over.
e) When land changes owners in this way, it becomes part of the new owner's free lands. The new owner may then of course reapportion it amongst eir vassals.
a) Any citizen owning land (and the King) may construct a building defined by one of the blueprints in the Planning Council kept here: http://myexactthoughts.com/nomic/index. ... ng_Council
These blueprints may only be added, removed or changed by the Monarch. When a citizen wants to construct a building, e pays the indicated resources. The construction then takes an hour. For the purposes of this rule, only the free lands of a Noble are considered to be owned by that Noble.
b) A building is always located in the citizen's land. Whenever the citizen loses all eir land, all buildings go to the new owner. If the owner only loses part of eir land, the buildings are considered to be located in the parts that are left unless otherwise specified. The Monarch or a Noble may, when reapportioning land among subordinates, specify which buildings are located in the land affected.
c) Some buildings have actions associated with them. These actions can only be taken by the building's owner and any direct subordinate or master of em given an explicit permit.
