Good news! The Philippines has ratified its new Constitution.

2020 Regional Constitution of the Philippines

Preamble

We, the member nations and states of this region called the Philippines, commit our energies to achieving unity, stability, and progress in this free and shared world. This Constitution shall be a testament to our dedication towards sustainable and innovative development for all.

Section 1. Declaration of Rights and Principles

Article 1. All nations of any political, economic, social, cultural, religious, and other preferences and leanings are welcome to join the region.

Article 2. Regardless of government type in each of the individual member nations, the regional government adheres to democratic, participatory, and republican principles.

Article 3. The regional government shall respect and uphold basic human rights and freedoms.

Article 4. The regional government shall promote sustainable and innovative development among its member nations.

Article 5. The regional government shall recognize the rights and responsibilities of member nations to be autonomous in managing their internal affairs. Immediate intervention shall only be deemed justified when the nation involved poses a threat to regional security.

Article 6. Disputes and conflicts between member nations, while discouraged, can be mediated by the regional government with utmost civility and impartiality, provided the involved parties shall be in agreement to allow such intervention.

Article 7. The region abhors war as an instrument of policy. However, when public safety and international stability requires, the regional government may be involved in actions towards liberation of other regions provided the region does so as part of an alliance, as well as defense to uphold the regional integrity and sovereignty of the Philippines from hostile or invasive action.

Article 8. In conjunction with the aforementioned provision, the regional government shall be dedicated to ensure ready power for peace by maintaining a force in being.

Article 9. The region shall be an exemplar of diplomacy by raising its profile in the world stage and establishing relations with strategic international partners through the construction of embassies, the maintenance of communications with these regions, and active cooperation with fellow members of the World Assembly.

Article 10. The region shall allow the creation of puppet nations, regardless of how the main nation styles them, provided that they follow the provisions of this Constitution and the stipulations of the overall international system. The main nation of these puppets shall be given autonomy on how to manage or locate them, as long as they do not pose a threat to the region.

Article 11. Roleplaying, forum discussions, and other activities which may spur the improvement of relations between member nations are encouraged.

Article 12. The region shall be a loving, caring, and sharing community for all member nations.

Section 2. Structure of the Regional Government

Article 1. Executive, legislative, and judicial powers shall be enjoined in the duties and responsibilities of the regional government of the Philippines.

Article 2. The World Assembly Delegate shall be the head of the region and its government. As Delegate, the nation is granted the title of President.

Article 3. The World Assembly Vice Delegate shall be second in command, and may act as head of the region and its government in the absence of the Delegate. As Vice Delegate, the nation is granted the title of Vice President.

Article 4. Both the Delegate and the Vice Delegate shall be elective positions. The frequency and nature of election shall be determined by law, as approved by a regional referendum.

Article 5. Upon election, all World Assembly members of the region shall give the highest number of endorsements to the Delegate, and the second highest to the Vice Delegate. The rest of the World Assembly members may endorse each other provided that they do not exceed the endorsement cap as defined by this Constitution.

Article 6. Other than the elective process, the Delegate or the Vice Delegate may be removed through impeachment. A case for impeachment may be filed by any member nation given there is sufficient evidence to pursue, and shall be decided by a quorum of the Regional Congress. In the event of impeachment of the Delegate, the Vice Delegate shall temporarily assume office until an election is arranged. In the event of impeachment of the Vice Delegate, the Delegate is empowered to assign the nation with the next highest endorsement to temporarily assume office until an election is arranged.

Article 7. Any candidate for Delegate and Vice Delegate must be a member of the World Assembly, and have been a resident of the Philippines for at least 300 days prior to election.

Article 8. The Regional Congress shall be composed of five member nations to enact relevant policies and programs alongside the Delegate and the Vice Delegate. Membership number of this Congress may be changed by law provided prevailing regional conditions allow so, as long as the number agreed upon shall be an odd number.

Article 9. Members of the Regional Congress shall be elective positions. The frequency and nature of election shall be determined by law, as approved by a regional referendum.

Article 10. Any candidate for the Regional Congress must be a member of the World Assembly, and have been a resident of the Philippines for at least 100 days prior to election.

Article 11. Other than the elective process, the Regional Congress members may be removed through administrative action. A case for administrative action may be filed by any member nation given there is sufficient evidence to pursue, and shall be decided by the Regional Affairs Minister. In the absence of the Regional Affairs Minister, an incumbent minister willing to take up the case shall be assigned by the regional government to decide on the matter. Until an election can be arranged for the Regional Congress, the remaining members may choose a nation who may temporarily assume the vacated office.

Article 12. The Delegate has the reserved power to appoint regional officers as deemed fit for the needs of the region. The regional officers include, but are not limited to, the following positions: Homeland Officer as Regional Affairs Minister, Security Officer as Defense Minister, Diplomacy Officer as Foreign Relations Minister, Communications Officer as Media Relations Minister, and Research Officer as Sustainability, Technology, and Innovation Minister.

Article 13. Preference for the selection of regional officers shall lean towards World Assembly membership, but may also depend on rationalized decision by the Delegate.

Article 14. Regional officers shall serve the functions assigned to them by the Delegate. No regional officer shall hold any elective office during its tenure of service. Failure to serve the position with excellence may compel the Delegate to make necessary changes in the roster.

Article 15. As a precautionary defense measure in case of the absence or unavailability of the Delegate (President), Vice Delegate (Vice President), Homeland Officer (Regional Affairs Minister), and Security Officer (Defense Minister) during times of emergency, all member nations are enjoined to endorse Ariusgrad as our default fallback option for its function as Eternal President. Said title is bestowed on this nation in honor for its long-standing public service, socioeconomic contributions, and enormous influence to the Philippines, a track record yet to be paralleled in the region's history.

Section 3. Regional Defense and Foreign Policy

Article 1. Following the principles cited in this Constitution, the region shall pursue the creation of a force in being to serve as deterrent to any hostile or invasive action against the Philippines. The Constitution shall remain operative even during times of emergency.

Article 2. This force in being, hereafter known as the Philippine Defense Force, shall be composed of all World Assembly members in the region. Considering this, all nations are encouraged to join the World Assembly.

Article 3. The regional government shall pursue a foreign policy which serves the best interests of both the region and the world.

Article 4. Any member of the regional government assigned with the powers to establish embassies, eject nations, and similar functions maintaining foreign policy may exercise their powers with utmost prudence, keeping in mind the safety and the integrity of the region.

Article 5. The region shall be an active participant to the World Assembly and its attached agencies, as well as to the alliances with other regions which the region has committed to.

Section 4. Transitory Provisions

Article 1. In case of amendment or charter change, the Constitutional Convention shall be assembled to review and approve the modifications to be made.

Article 2. The Constitutional Convention shall be composed of elected member nations which are either World Assembly members with at least 100 days’ residency in the region, or non-World Assembly members with at least 500 days’ residency in the region.

Article 3. The frequency and nature of election of the Convention members shall be determined by law, as approved by a regional referendum.

Article 4. The first Regional Congress to be convened under this Constitution shall be appointed by the Delegate with relaxed conditions. The requirement retained for this transitory provision is membership in the World Assembly. Election for Congress members shall take place until it is arranged following the aforementioned provisions for this matter.

Article 5. The incumbent Delegate and Vice Delegate prior to the approval of this Constitution shall retain their positions until an election is arranged following the aforementioned provisions for this matter.

Article 6. This Constitution, as covenant of the region for its member nations, shall be deemed effective as soon as its approved and finalized version is published at the consent of the Constitutional Convention assembled for this purpose.

Read dispatch

We have formalized adherence to unity, stability, and progress, as well as sustainable and innovative development for all. We will be happy for you to join us as we endeavor to achieve these goals together!

The Philippines has just concluded its first election under the new regional constitution. Details here: page=rmb/postid=38698477

Congratulations to all the new officials!


So you have a new embassy with The Paris Accord? That's great news for you and us! And, we can ensure that this document is your guide to understanding how our embassies work!


Link


Current Embassy Policy

It's our job to ensure that all of our embassies are open, transparent, and working. Any region or group that wants an embassy is allowed to get an embassy! If we fail to ensure our promises to you, then you are fully allowed to deny or revoke our embassies that we have together!

We are more than just a region on NationStates, we are a family, a group, and an organization. With your help, we can grow our family!

Official Current Embassy Policy: Open {To All}


Current Embassy Program

As we stated above, we think of our embassies as family. One really big family. And family is together, no matter what.

To ensure that we can commit to our promises, we have established a program that allows us to work and grow openly with our embassies. Our goal is to serve you, and for you to serve us. We need you to commit full effort, not to help us grow, but to ensure that you can grow. If we can't help you, then what's the point of having an embassy with us?

Start small, and grow big. That's a promise that we can ensure and keep!

We run a committee that works with many other regional governments, to run and host a series of continuous events, to promote and advocate for many topics and issues, and to run programs to help spread and grow others and ourselves.

Official Current Embassy Program: Open Alignment Program {Commited To All Embassies}


Current Embassy Information

If you ever need help or want to get in contact with someone from our region, we are ready to help! The easiest, fastest, and most reliable thing to do would be contacting either our owner and founder of our region, (Eco-Paris Reformation), or to get in contact with the diplomat or ambassador that was sent to our region! You can also try your luck with other members of our regional government if our founder or your diplomat or ambassador is not currently active or responding!

All information that is stated above and below is what will forever stand by! Embassies are a pact, a connection between one region and another. But as we said above, we consider ourselves to be way more than just an embassy!

You should most definitely read the information about the Open Alignment Program! It allows us to help you, and for you to help us. But, one thing is for sure, we care more about helping you then you helping us. Stick with us, and we can help you to our fullest!

Our region stands for more than just advocating and promoting ideas and such... It stands for change, a change that can happen, and change that will happen. And, working together is an amazing way to see our goals and dreams come true. Our region has fun, we govern, and we live.

In no way do we want to push and spread our ideas and ideals onto you. Instead, we want to leave topics and issues to be discussed and plans to resolve and fix them. To ensure fairness, we promise to only post on your RMB every other week (unless we clarify and get permission from a member of your regional government to do otherwise). And, to make this even fairer, open, and more transparent, we allow you to post on our region whenever you feel like it. Can you even call us a region if we're not fair?


Current Embassy Diplomats and Ambassadors

One of our more major beliefs is that we can help you and you can help us grow by working together. How do we do that you might ask? Simple answer: we allow you to send us diplomats, and or ambassadors, to our region, and you can expect something similar in return. No, you're not required to send any diplomats or anything like that to our region, but you're welcome to do so. If you send diplomats and ambassadors, they will be permeant residents of our region, relaying information about what is going in our region so that we can help you and you can help us. They can help us both in many ways, and you get to decide what you want them to do. We give them a site guide and rules to follow, and you can expand that in whatever way you want.

Current Embassy Count

If you didn't know, embassy harvesting is a term for a region that collects mass embassies here on NationStates. The most iconic region of which is no other than The Embassy!

We have no goal currently to embassy harvest, but as stated above, we are open to all regions and groups.

Official Current Embassy Count: 46

U.C.E.O.T.W. Times #8 (8th June AD 2020):

Concordance on Discord:

Recently, at the encouragement of LadyMorrighan of the New Reich of Bunicken, our region has launched our very own Discord server! It has proven to be quite a success so far, streamlining inter-regional diplomacy and the meetings of the Regional Triumvirs. Here is a link to the Discord: Linkhttps://discord.gg/cmcMscs. Our server is open to one and all, especially ambassadors from our embassy regions! We would be more than happy to see you all there! The idea to open a regional discord was first aired very early on in our region's life by Falmards, although the time was not deemed right until now.

Hail the Triumvirate!:

The results of the most recent elections are in! Xukong has been officially re-elected as World Assembly Delegate but decided to step down as Imperial Grand Councillor shortly before the election-period. This left the way open for our Imperial Councillor of Religion and History, New Jewlan to be elected as Imperial Grand Councillor, thus setting up the new Triumvirate. This event also led the way for another prominent candidate, Cellaronia, to be appointed as our new Imperial Councillor of Internal Affairs and a Count of the Region. He is the first to hold this position officially since the resignation of Blue carnation, although Dominant Oppressors had been serving the role's functions in an unofficial capacity until a right candidate could be selected.

Evangelizing the Stars:

Following efforts by members of the United Christian Empires of the West to terraform and colonise Mars, led primarily by a branch of Xukong, known as Pandomica (with significant contributions by members of the Dominant Oppressorian Space Force / Colonisation Units). The united space force became known as the United Christian Empires of the Galaxy. Now, terraforming is near completion and it is time to look at dividing the planet between our member-states. The Holy Emperor of Dominant Oppressors, Adam J. Vader (who also presently holds the title of 'Tsar of Xukong'), then personally drew up the divisions of the land. He then ran it by Viceroy Sheyn Romany of Xukong and following his input and agreement, summoned a Congress to be attended by the leaders of every member nation of the United Christian Empires of the West to show them the divisions. The Congress was held in the capital city of Xukong, Lunar Lake City. Terraforming has since been completed and the borders discussed at the congress have been realized.

Raiders of the Lost Ark:

New regional laws have been enacted to prevent hostile acts of raiding being performed by our member-nations and any raid of any calibre must be approved by the Regional Triumvirate beforehand for ti to be a legal action. In addition to this, one of our protectorate-regions, the United Christian Empires of the North has been converted into a refuge for displaced nations as an alternative to The Rejected Realms. More information can be found here. These reforms were proposed by WAD Xukong following several embassy-regions falling victim to raider-forces.

A Tsar is Born!:

Following the untimely death of Prime Minister Sophia Kennedy of Xukong, the Xukonger people cried out for a return to the old absolute monarchy system of days past. However, they had no heirs of the previous royal line to fill the position. So, they turned to long-time ally of their nation, Holy Emperor Adam J. Vader of Dominant Oppressors, who had previously served as a figure-head constitutional monarch for Xukong and offered him the Xukonger Crown. The Holy Emperor accepted the offer and was crowned 'Tsar of Xukong' shortly afterwards by Cardinal-Archbishop C. of The VRCC Bishopric of CrimsonScribbles. A transcript of the coronation can be found here. To aid him in governance, a native Xukonger was appointed as Viceroy of Xukong, a man named Sheyn Romany.

The Church and the Federation:

Our region also joined two alliances as of late. The first was with the Virtual Roman Catholic Church for RP purposes and prayer posting, CrimsonScribbles serves as our regional Bishop for them and so far their services have proven to be very valuable and we are grateful to have partnered with them. In addition to this, we have joined The New United Federation of Planets as a member-region. Dominant Oppressors is serving as our representative on the Federation Council and both he and New Jewlan are serving as Supreme Court Judges for them, with talks regarding Xukong's appointment also at play. We are also in process of joining a third agreement as a member-region but more details on that will be released soon.

A Royal Engagement:

It has been revealed to us in an exclusive interview that Viceroy Sheyn Romany of The Holy Christian Kingdom of Xukong and Holy Princess Sarah J. Vader of The Holy Christian Dominion of Glorious Ascension, second cousin and Goddaughter of Holy Emperor Adam J. Vader of The Holy Christian Empire of Dominant Oppressors, are engaged to be married. It has been found by our reporters that they have much in common including a shared birth-date and them both being orphans (for different reasons however) as well as other factors we are sure they share! It has also been announced that Holy Princess Sarah wishes still for the regency of Glorious Ascension by Holy Emperor Adam J. Vader to continue for the foreseeable future. Adam J. Vader will also remain Tsar of Xukong until his passing, however the line of succession will be altered to favor any offspring of this upcoming marriage as the next Tsar or Tsarina of Xukong. Sheyn Romany will also continue to serve as Viceroy for the time being, with his relationship with the Tsar only being strengthened by the marriage. It has also been speculated that the marriage could produce a new cadet-house of House Vader if the couple have more than one child, with one needing to be of House Vader proper to be heir, according to Glorious Ascensionist and Dominant Oppressorian Law. More details about the upcoming wedding will be released shortly.

A Packed Summer:

Several regional events are planned for this summer. These include most prominently the 1 Year Anniversary of the Region on Thursday August 6th, a special event for Xukong on Thursday 16th July and the 1 Year Anniversaries of Dominant Oppressors and New Jewlan on Friday 31st July and Sunday August 2nd respectively. All of these events will be accompanied by celebrations on the RMB and on our Discord. We would be happy to see you all there! More information to come as we approach these special days!

Thank you all for reading this issue of the U.C.E.O.T.W. Times! We will see you all in the next issue! Thank you very much, may God bless you always and have a great week ahead!

Greeting my little tributes, Waiban here! Well, this was a pretty interesting game. Lots of players got their hands on some explosives from Mr Unknown Sponsor, yet never lived long enough to use them. Here I thought they were gonna blow up the whole arena! Anyways, congratulations to Team Greater Charville—Charville and Greater Tagrai—for their victory!
