The Kingdom of the Gulf is a micronation founded in August 2016. The Kingdom is a constitutional monarchy, that divides the powers of goverment to between the Parliament and the Royal Court. The nation is unique to do having it's king being a dog.

Etymology

The Kingdom's name came about from local geography, for the Kingdom is located near the Gulf of Mexico.

History

The Kingdom was founded in August of 2016, when King Max the First was crowned the eternal ruler of the Gulf, after the collapse of the of previous Government, The Gulf Republic. Shortly afterward, Quinn was selected to be the Crown's Executive Officer, and got to work on drafting the national Constitution. It was also during this time a website was put under development, and the Royal Province surveyed and declared as the first Province.

It would be in the year of 2017, when the Constitution was finished, and the first elections were held. Three parties came into power: the Loyalist, The Liberals, and the Care-About-Nothing Party. The loyalist supported the king, and his rule, while the Liberals stood in opposition to this, and fought for a more democratic form of goverment. The CANP stood true to their name, and had no stance on any issue. In face, there is no record of them attending any sessions of Parliament. It was at this time the first colonies where being formed as well.

In the beginning of 2018, the 1st Parliament slowed progress and became idle, leaving the nation without a legislative body. The King and his Offices took charge during this time, and kept the goverment of the nation running during this time. Towards the end of the year, it proved that it would be impossible to hold re-elections, and fill the parliament. on January the first, the King and His Executive Officer official dissolved the first Parliament.

In the official announcement, the King declared that a set of reforms would begin, that would lead to the re-writing of the Constitution an change how the goverment opperated, as in order to prevent Parliament from having a massive collapse again. It is during this period of reform the the Kingdom currently finds itself in.

Government and Politics

Government System The Government is divided into two bodies: the Parliament and the Royal Court.

Parliament is in charge of drafting bills of law, and is lead by a Prime Minister. The Royal Court is given the power to approve bills, hold executive power, and serve as chief judicial court. They are lead by the Executive Officer of the Crown, who serves as the de facto leader of the nation, on behalf of the King.

All goverment offices and services must be legally done in the King's name, leading to the following Offices being formed:

- The Office of the Crown (The Personal Staff of the King)

- The Office of State (Deals with domestic issues)

- The Office of Foreign Affairs

- The King's Guard (The National Defense Force)

- The Office of Currency (Banking and Finance)

- The Office of Law (National Law enforcement and Law Bar)

Each office is lead by an Officer of the Crown, who is traditionally selected by the Executive Officer of the Crown. However, if parliament brings forth an individual they would like to see hold the office, the Executive tends to pick that individual.

Provinces and Colonies The Kingdom is made up of two types of territories: Provinces and Colonies. Each is ran by a Governor. For provinces, Governors are elected by the people. In colonies, the Governor is selected by the King.


Court System

The Courts system in the Kingdom is divided into three parts: Lower, High, and Royal. All ruling and decisions made by the court are on the King's behalf.

The Low and High Courts are similar to traditional Courts. They serve both legal and civil matters, and are ran by a Judge, who serves on the King's behalf. Individuals, in legal cases, have the right to a lawyer and will be provided one by the Office of Law if needed. However, individuals do not have the right to trial by Jury. All verdicts are made by a Judge. Verdicts may be appealed to a higher court, until they reach the Royal Court.

The Royal Court serves as the supreme court pf the Kingdom, and is made up of all the Kingdom's nobles. All verdicts made by the Royal Court can only be appealed by the King Himself.
