Legal Essexian Database

This is an old revision of this page, as edited by JamieM (talk | contribs) at 22:01, 1 June 2020. It may differ significantly from the current revision.

The Legal Essexian Database Act 2020 was introduced on the 27th of April 2020 to allow the creation of a database containing all Essexian documents, as well as laying out the process by which a document shall be added to the database.

The creation of the database took the Law Commission, created for the very purpose of examining Essexian legislation, many weeks. While it was widely known, the extent to which much of Essexia's law was uncodified was greatly revealed; after the Declaration of Independence in 2017, which is the earliest surviving document, there was around a two year period in which the vast majority of Essexian law was conducted through decree, mostly over text message - the forums of which are now lost. This made it difficult for those on the commission, including Crown Minister Jacob and Junior Minister Cracky, to trace the origins of Essexian law before late 2018. It was decided that any law that could only be remembered, and not found in writing, would be repealed after the assent of the Legal Essexian Database Act.

It is expected by some older citizens of Essexia that up to one-hundred motions and decrees were subsequently lost after the creation of the database, and now exist only in the memory of those who were active around the time the laws took effect. It is also widely acknowledged that the database omits around a dozen pieces of modern legislation, following either controversy around their status of assent, or the commissions inability to trace the original document; around mid-2019, several MPs created legislation by using existing Acts as templates, without creating a copy of the original document, meaning a lot of modern Essexian law has also been lost accidentally.
