More simply, Regelis is a democratic-republic system where people within a ruling body of the state, called a ministry, vote to elect a representative of that ministry. A heads of state are a body of 33 individuals, leaders of their fields elected by the people by the merit of their works, who execute to the best of their ability their positions with advisory from all potential vectors. Because of a slant of the government toward the Asian internet hacker culture, as mentioned previously; the nation of Regelis has a distinctly Japanese feels, uses Japanese symbolism, and operated with a cyberpunk-like vision of the future.

Regelis was originally founded by a group of students from within the Florida state's gifted student program ([[w:Gifted_education|GATE]]) under the name the Meritocratic-Republic of Kaos (/'koʊs/) [k-owes]. An assignment was given to students to create and maintain a model nation over a period of 8 weeks, and to take part in diplomatic relations with other classmates nation's. This was started Mon 22 Nov 1999, on Start Your Own Nation Day, a recreational holiday<ref>https://www.theodysseyonline.com/national-start-country-day November 22 is National Start Your Own Country Day, In Case You've Always Wanted To Be King</ref>. After this school assignment had ended, that group of individuals worked to maintain the Kaosian government structure throughout the school year, and the year after. Originally formed as a military dictatorship, through operation, members of the Kaosian government began to understand a need for government reform. The government changed rapidly over this 2 month period. Through classwork the students began to understand the need for negotiation and open mindedness to other cultures. A novel concept was created at this time, the Meritocracy portion of the governmental ideology. They maintained topical interest in the project for several years. However, the original members of the Kaosian government departed over time and distance.

===Resurgence===
 
With the advent of the open internet,  Facebook, Voice over IP services, and IRC like group chat services under wide use Regelis was able to restructure with like minded people online and in person. Kaos was fully active between the years of 1999 and 2006, though elementary to high school education, as it was maintained through the same group of students attending the same schools. Between 2006 and 2008, a several moves caused sporadic activity with the group. In 2008 after a move across the United States, an original founding member of the group reformed the nation into the oligarchical Regelian government, forming a cohesive ideology and culture of thought. This gathered interest of friends and online contributors, to build a small but dedicated community for the growing micronation. Rebuilding the nation after the cross country move was a slow, but begin to restore its activity to pre-2006 levels.

Regelis has developed a clear ideology, and has expectations from its citizens when acting in public. Citizens are preferred to keep to themselves in public spaces, avoid conflict triggering actions, prevent violence, do not engage in disruptive speech, or display offensive imagery. At the same time venues are open to display freedom of speech and expression, with no threat of censorship. Organized public protest is permitted in any public area at any time, so long as it is determined to not infringe upon the rights of others.

Citizens are encouraged by the government to take competitive wages, and to work on their own self fulfilling projects. Because of the universal basic income that Regelis provides, it is expected that businesses incentivize the public to enter the workforce through quality of life programs, and tangible benefits. As a result of this government maintained economic program, the value of work has become vital to businesses who must compete to acquire skilled labor.

===Intellectual Property===
 
Intellectual property rights differ depending on the type of intellectual property produced. For written works, in digital or physical media, copyrights last for the lifetime of the author and an additional 5 years after the authors death. This gives enough time for the estate to capitalize on works already in publication before entering the public domain. For unpublished work written by deceased author, the estate may only profit from the work for 5 years after its first publication.

===Relationships===
 
Relationships in Regelis are viewed as personal matters, and marriage as a religious ceremony. Marriage is viewed is a promise of from one person to another to maintain monogamy within a relationship. Divorce is legally easy to perform, as separation is instantaneous. If only one party agrees, and there is not suitable prearranged contract, the separation processes immediately to allocation of possessions. Possession of belongings in a relationship are always treated the same regardless of the apparent quality or longevity of that relationship. They are split to the purchasers, and if neither can agree on an ownership of an object, it is claimed by the state instead. Custody is handled in a per case basis. Normally this is joint custody, but could be single custody is there is evidence of child or spousal abuse.

As a result of the view of marriage as a religious event, people are open to practice their religious views without fear of ostracization. Homosexual marriage is legal in the state of religious without any restrictions. If their religion does not allow homosexual marriage, the state will provide marriage service for them. Polygamous and polyamorous relationships are also legal. Polgamous marriages may also be performed by the state, however they do require complex premarital contracts forfeiting property in the event of partial separation. In the event of a difficult legal divorce case, the judge may liquidate all assets owned by all parties, then split the monetary earnings between them.

This symbol was chosen because, despite many hardships, reformations, differences in vision, and long periods of inactivity; Regelis never truly dies. Like the phoenix Regelis is an immortal being that sub-sequentially rises from its own ashes. From the reformation of the Kaos dictatorship, to monarchy, to democracy to the republic that Regelis is now. Through the merger of itself with other states such as Promatia. Through physical separation of members of government over distance and time. Regelis still survives. The phoenix reciprocates this as a symbol of longevity, the seasons, and protection. It is also known as a creature of vision, organization, and imagination. This beast fits the spirit of Regelis all around.

Matches of Go in Regelis consist of 6 games with players alternating black and white, with a 6.5 point Komi to white players. Matches that remain tied after game six continue into two extra games in order to break the tie. If this continues, the matches continue until a player is up two games over an opponent. If a player scores 4 games in a 6 game match, the match ends prematurely. Games end in Korean style territory scoring. The polite way to resign in Regelis is to play on the board a piece of your opponent's color.

If there are no disks on the board controlled by your opponent when shooting, if a shot does not land into the central circle it is removed from the board. If your opponent does have a disk on the board, in order to retain the disk you are shooting, you must contact an opponent's disk. This can be done with a carom shot, by hitting another one of your disks before hitting an opponents. However, if you fail to hit an opponent's disk, all disks of your own touched during that shot are removed from the board.

Mimosa Pudica's seed pods are quite large and easily harvested for their small, round peppercorn-like seeds. These seed pod are brambled collections of burred filaments much like small tumbleweeds. In many parts of the world, Mimosa Pudica is considered a invasive weed, and strongly effects tropical crops. Some crops it effects strongly are bananas, coconuts, coffee, corn, cotton, papaya, soybeans, sugar cane, and tomatoes. The plant also strongly effects the soil composition of the areas it invades, increasing the amount of ground nitrogen and potassium. The main branch of the plant is covered in sharp thorns next to each stem.

The Weeping Yoshino Cherry Tree, or shidarezakura is child of hybrid ''Prunus speciosa'' and ''Prunus pendula'' cherry trees grafted with ''Prunus serrulata'' the common cherry blossom; ''Prunus × yedoensis|serrulata''. The resulting tree, the Weeping Yoshino Cherry Tree has a very different appearance than the common cherry blossom, looking much more like a weeping willow tree. Often confused with a willow which is a salicylic acid producing evergreen plant, the Weeping Yoshino Cherry is a flowering tree of the Rose family.

Most cultivars of cherry trees have a short lifespan of 30-40 years. However, the Weeping Yoshino Cherry's lifespan is unknown. Originally relatively uncommon hybrid, was formed naturally.

Hangings from tree are capable of reaching from the full height of the tree to the ground.<ref>https://www.trees.com/yoshino-cherry-tree Trees</ref> The shidarezakura grows rapidly, reaching 15 foot height in as little as 3 years, and full height in as few as 20. Because of its rapid growth, much like the willow tree it needs a substantial amount of water in order to sustain its growth; preferring areas with high precipitation. These trees easily survive cold winter temperatures, but their buds may be damaged when exposed to cold weather during the spring budding season, where temperatures below -2 C (28 F) damage flowering buds permanently.

With this system of government, the leading party is chosen by the people determined by their range of credibility. The most credible and contribute to mankind as a whole should be elected to serve a term in office. The highest ranking official in office, is a Stace. A stace is a single member of a small council. This council's only function is to make the final decision as what new policies to enact upon the state. The Council of Staces, is informed by a publicly elected House of Associates. The House of Associates serves the role of a parliament, with staces acting as the main speakers. The associates within the house each represent one field within the eleven bodied government consortium. All associates act under one of the Staces, and report vital and influential data directly to the Council of Staces.

The Associates have a barrage of advisors that provide information to direct the associates' main focuses. Advisors, obtain information directly from scientists, researchers, and civilians within their given aspect of government. Advisors collect data to represent new policies provided by associates to be passed by the Council of Staces via popular vote. The Council of Staces then distributes orders to be followed by District Chairmen, to change public or international policy. In the event that any policy disregards any of the basic fundamental human rights. It can be declared “perilous aevum”, and disregarded in popular vote by the House of Judges. Otherwise, the House of Judges put the law into effect through district courts.

Population makes up the foundation of the structural hierarchy of governmental power. The people democratically elect representatives from every part of the hierarchy from the individual team level, to the Council itself. Law enforcement and legal professionals are hired from the pool of public career workers. Scientists and researchers come from education spaces, academic centers, and colleges. District chairs are traditionally grown from grassroots lobby groups, and public interest electoral committees. Public speakers make their way up the political ladder.

The people democratically elect representatives from every part of the hierarchy from the individual team level, to the Council itself. Law enforcement and legal professionals are hired from the pool of public career workers. Scientists and researchers come from education spaces, academic centers, and colleges. District chairs are traditionally grown from grassroots lobby groups, and public interest electoral committees. Public speakers make their way up the political ladder.

The last level of government is the House of Associates, built from advisors contained within districts. By being leaders in their fields, they will presumably promote the best suggestions of leadership. This voting republic is in the best interest to ease their own line of work, give a means for clear optimization of systems they use, and suggest quality of life improvements for themselves. The House of Councils should contain the secretaries that communicate with elected Premieres to promote advice from the House of Associate's. These suggestions should be put into action as these suggestions interest everyone in their own ministry. Through this selfishness of the ministries, the whole of the House of Councils moves efficiently. Populous based ministries take their leadership generally from politicians, field leaders, and the academic hierarchy so that both associates and secretaries have a clear line of succession (through death, abandonment, or election) to all of the ministries' positions. Lastly of course the House of Judges, voted in by their peers, stands to act as the moral leadership of Regelis. With the ability to veto and enforce law with direct access to district courts, should the House of Councils bypass the 1st appeal stage.

Not to be confused with a claim of Regelis influencing  the development of ''Horizon Zero Dawn''; Project Zero Dawn itself is eerily similar in design to Regelis' governmental structure. At least in relation to Gaia's subordinate systems. In the game, Gaia, an artificial intelligence charged with the continuity of the human species after the accidental destruction of life on earth by the Faro Plague<ref>https://horizon.fandom.com/wiki/Faro_Plague Horizon Zero Dawn Wiki</ref>; is given charge over 9 subordinate systems named after greek gods. These being Aether, Apollo, Artemis, Demeter, Eleuthia, Hades, Hephaestus, Minerva, and Poseidon. These 9 systems are each a compartmentalized unit, which is subordinate to Gaia.<ref>https://horizon.fandom.com/wiki/Subordinate_Functions Horizon Zero Dawn Wiki</ref> Contrasted, is Regelis' own 11 ministries, which is subordinate to the House of Councils.

The only allegories that can't be made between the two are Artemis and Demeter, whose purpose is to catalog the DNA of all species on earth. As well as Regelis' Popustace, Monistace, and Emisstace, due to Project Zero Dawn not needing to operate functions of state and government. Broadly though, the two are very similar. Regelis' governmental structure has existed as early as 2005 as Kaos' government, with charts showing the structure of government made in September 2013.<ref>https://reliance.boards.net/thread/29/structure-house RelianceNA Forum</ref>

Primarily, the Armistace exists to maintain peacetime readiness, and to manage military manpower. There are five  branches in the military of Regelis. Of these branches, exist the Guard, Navy, Air Force, ROSE, and Sentry. The Guard houses the states external ground forces, The Navy for sea, The Air Force for Air, and of course The ROSE to secure the homeland from foreign invaders. A branch that you may not be so familiar with the state calls The Sentry, that protects the nation and its residency from attacks through its cyber-security infrastructure. As a general rule of war, the military force in Regelis is not to be managed as a sword. Rather, the force acts as a shield to protect its people from the threat of foreign policy. The Armistace will to the best of their ability provide public knowledge relating to sensitive military operations and advances, while at best avoiding breaches of national security. Please note that Regelis does formally recognize a six-star military rank, in the form of the Secretary of Arms, who does have operating authority over all five branches of Regelis' military force. The Armistace and Vicestace will mitigate the Secretary of Arms, and action may only be placed in the result of a majority vote among the government council. The Armistace is this six-star officer.

Managing the workforce of any state will be a daunting job for any one person. Under control of the Comistace are Associates for; Corporate Enterprise, Incomes and Wages, Labor, Logistics, and Standards. Management of wages paid for contribution of civilian man-hours will be strictly up to the employer. However, legislation related to the minimum wages that must be paid by field will be the duty of the Associate of Incomes and Wages, and Labor. Exchanges in actual monetary return will be left to the Monistace, and Economic Secretaries. The Comistace must attempt to limit the spread of corporate enterprise, and to prevent the development of substandard goods. Goods like these that would normally be produced in order to reduce company costs and the cost of their products on the consumer. They will also direct manpower to progress the overall technology level of the state and maintain critical infrastructure. The maintenance of logistics systems in order to calculate the maximum efficiency of resources and transport of goods and service will be a duty imposed on the Comistace, as well as the standardization of weights and measures. Regelis will use the metric system of measurement for all trade, national and international. Where the Comistace controls the logistics of international and internal shipping, the Monistace will work with the Emistace to decide the specifics of what may be shipped, as well as international tariffs and taxes.

Political, or otherwise, refuges are an issue to most nations and must be dealt with in a sensitive manor. Information gathering from the office of the Indistace will be assessed in order determine the status of states worldwide. The Emisstace will grant asylum and protection by the state of Regelis from oppressive government powers at no cost to such refuges. National standards will be set in place, as no place of business will be required to communicate in a language other than English for any purpose. Direct communication in English is mandatory. Regelis does mandate that communication from businesses to their consumers for economic reasons provide a universal communication medium in the form of English, and in a base 10 number system. In a primary example, a business may list its ordering options in the form of English and in a foreign language; however ordering must not require a foreign name to be included but simply an order number. Remember that English is Regelis' national language. While mandating international trade regulations may be required, the office of the Emisstace also mitigates international affairs in an attempt to minimize classism, especially as a basis of political agenda. Political diplomacy will not normally be handled by the Emisstace, but rather the Secretary of International Affairs.

The Socistace Ministry is the office of Regelis with the worst public perception. Often seen as a producer of Regelian propaganda, they service more functions that simply this. While they do produce and promote the Regelis to the outside world, they are also responsible for promoting locations of interest, tourism centers, public works, events, and conventions. They work closely with the Emisstace to strategize the best place to assert Regelian influence into centers of trade, Regelian co-operation on international projects, and the acquisition of specialized extranational STEM workers; incentivizing them to migrate to Regelis, through [[w:Human_capital_flight|human captial flight]].

The base unit of currency used in Regelis is the Houro. This currency is pinned to the value of a person hour. The total currency in circulation of the nation is determined by the following formula: 8766 × population. This money is strictly maintained by a computerized balancing system. This version of the currency is kept in equilibrium with the nations universal basic income.

The universal basic income of Regelis serves as an economic class balance and income re-distrobution-like system. Because of the amount given each day, and equal amount must be taken from the economy to balance out expenses. This form of taxation is a [[w:Demurrage_(currency)|demurrage]] that universally removes a small percentage percent from the account of every account in the Regelis banks each day. After this amount is removed, it is redistributed to every working class citizens in equal measure. This taxation liquidates currency from large holders in order to incentivize spending, and give to lower income individuals also to incentivize spending.<ref>https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Demurrage_currency Demurrage Currency and the Hot Potato Effect</ref> This is a form of income redistribution, it is more direct, but far less impactful on people with large holding account. The balance of this currency will mean that in general keeping more than 1 years salary in an account will prevent earning of a universal basic income. Having more will cause a person to begin to lose their savings. There is a separate savings account not impacted by this demurrage, to which depositing will effect the national holdings. National holding are valued in resources like precious metals. Private holdings do not effect national holdings, and are the preferred method by which to store personal wealth in Regelis. Purchasing and holding products or items of intrinsic value are encouraged. These items are not taxable by the government of Regelis.

===Advantages & Disadvantages===
 
The primary criticism of the Regelian currency system, is that retaining funds in a single citizen account is dangerous. Any amount of money in a citizen account would be liquidated completely after 1 calendar year, if that person did not move their funds to a dedicated savings account. This would happen even faster if Regelis' Houro reserve is expended due to a high velocity exchange of currency for government programs and the military. It could tax a citizen's account to liquidation in as little as 4 months.

The storage of assets themselves are a weakness of this system. In order to verify holdings, the Office of the Monistace is required to be in physical possession of, and maintain that possession of large quantities of precious resources, metals, valuable items, artworks, estates, and arbitrary objects. These items require cataloging into the assets management system through RID tagging. Because often, the value of precious metals, gemstones, and objects is at anytime arbitrary. A realtime log of the value of these objects needs to be maintained. Depending on the scale of such a log, and the number of objects in holding; the total value of holdings can vary widely; especially if the conversion rate of the Houro weakens. Even moreso, it acts as a single weak vector of attack in the event of a malicious actor, who could destabilize the economy by thieving the held materials; or simply destroy them.

In short, any citizen may withdraw requested resources from the government. However, rather than having such resources in the unpredictable environment that is the public domain, having such materials guarded by the Guard of Regelis' military is much more likely to protect nation's economic structure. As a standard, 1 currency unit will be equal to minimum wage of the world's strongest economy other than Regelis. This is theory would make the Regelis economy the strongest in the world, however, this concept is countered by another country doing the same with their own currency at a lower unit value. Currency is scalar, there is no be no inflation in the economy of Regelis. Because the economy of Regelis will be electronically equalized, an unseen floating decimal of nine 9 places will exist. The currency symbol for the Houro is <s>H</s>.

Regelis (/rɛɡʌlɪs/) [re-gull-iss] or (/rɛɡjulɛs/) [reg-oo-less], is operated through a combination of governmental systems. Technocracy is a form of government in which engineers, scientists, health professionals and other technical experts are in control of decision making in their respective fields.[1] In a Noocracy, power is acquired and maintained according to the laws of competition, and would remain in the hands of the political elites but with these elites being professionally trained, making the most of the analysis, the forecasts and the propositions emanating from a vast array of advisory groups made up of experts from all areas of science, and setting up fieldwork experiments. Finally, a Meritocracy is a system of government (based upon aristocratic or oligarchical structures) or other organization wherein appointments are made and responsibilities assigned to individuals based upon demonstrated intelligence and ability (merit).

Meritocracy itself is not a form of government, but rather an ideology. It is often the case that meritocracy itself is confused as a type of government, rather than correctly as a methodology or factor used in or for, the appointment of individuals to government. Individuals appointed to a meritocracy are judged based upon certain merits which could range from intelligence to morality to general aptitude. Regelis is a Technoomeritocratic Oligarchical Republic. A phrase coined prior to Kaos' founding, from James and Fleisher Anderson's works on hacker culture.[2][3] As well as Manuel Castell's culture of the internet.[4] From which the following quote originates.

Together they contribute to an ideology of freedom that is widespread in the Internet world. However, this ideology is not the founding culture because it does not interact directly with the development of the technological system: freedom has many uses. These cultural layers are hierarchically disposed: the techno-meritocratic culture becomes specified as a hacker culture by building rules and customs into networks of cooperation aimed at technological projects. The virtual communitarian culture adds a social dimension to technological sharing, by making the Internet a medium of selective social interaction and symbolic belonging. The entrepreneurial culture works on top of the hacker culture, and on the communitarian culture, to diffuse Internet practices in all domains of society by way of money-making. Without the techno-meritocratic culture, hackers would simply be a specific countercultural community of geeks and nerds. Without the hacker culture, communitarian networks in the Internet would be no different from many other alternative communes. Similarly, without the hacker culture, and communitarian values, the entrepreneurial culture cannot be characterized as specific to the Internet

— Manuel Castell, Culture of the Internet (2001)

Kaos' and ultimately Regelis were founded from members of the white hat hacking community. Starting the entrants of the FIRST Robotics Competition[5], about the same time that Kaos was founded in 1999. Later, this expanded to include members of online hacking communites such as hackthissite, Let Them Find Us (LTFU), and hightechlowlife (HTLL). Members of these communities contributed ideas and legislation to Regelis throughout 2008-2016, and still advise the Regelian government, providing Open-Source Intelligence(OSINT) services to its cyber-military Sentry Branch.

More simply, Regelis is a democratic-republic system where people within a ruling body of the state, called a ministry, vote to elect a representative of that ministry. A heads of state are a body of 33 individuals, leaders of their fields elected by the people by the merit of their works, who execute to the best of their ability their positions with advisory from all potential vectors. Because of a slant of the government toward the Asian internet hacker culture, as mentioned previously; the nation of Regelis has a distinctly Japanese feels, uses Japanese symbolism, and operated with a cyberpunk-like vision of the future.

Mission Statement

A flag of Regelis.

We believe in the power of the people. In Regelis, we see it in the best interest that the most experienced person within a field leads by example. The Minister of Education is been voted as the best educator by teachers. The Minister of Foreign Affairs is the most knowledgeable of how the governments of the world operate, and is voted in by our ambassadors. Attorney Generals are voted in by other lawyers. The heads of state are voted into office by everyone with suffrage, and of matching ministerial interest.

This democratic system of government is operated by several houses which create laws, issue statements, and steer the entire nation toward a state of progress and development in a positive direction.

We believe in every single person's ability to create great things and live great lives. We want to do everything in our nation's power to make that dream possible. Regelis will give everything it can to meet that goal and forge a future free of regret, free of pain, and free from the failure to meet the needs of the human condition.

History

Regelis was originally founded by a group of students from within the Florida state's gifted student program (GATE) under the name the Meritocratic-Republic of Kaos (/'koʊs/) [k-owes]. An assignment was given to students to create and maintain a model nation over a period of 8 weeks, and to take part in diplomatic relations with other classmates nation's. This was started Mon 22 Nov 1999, on Start Your Own Nation Day, a recreational holiday[6]. After this school assignment had ended, that group of individuals worked to maintain the Kaosian government structure throughout the school year, and the year after. Originally formed as a military dictatorship, through operation, members of the Kaosian government began to understand a need for government reform. The government changed rapidly over this 2 month period. Through classwork the students began to understand the need for negotiation and open mindedness to other cultures. A novel concept was created at this time, the Meritocracy portion of the governmental ideology. They maintained topical interest in the project for several years. However, the original members of the Kaosian government departed over time and distance.

Resurgence

With the advent of the open internet, Facebook, Voice over IP services, and IRC like group chat services under wide use Regelis was able to restructure with like minded people online and in person. Kaos was fully active between the years of 1999 and 2006, though elementary to high school education, as it was maintained through the same group of students attending the same schools. Between 2006 and 2008, a several moves caused sporadic activity with the group. In 2008 after a move across the United States, an original founding member of the group reformed the nation into the oligarchical Regelian government, forming a cohesive ideology and culture of thought. This gathered interest of friends and online contributors, to build a small but dedicated community for the growing micronation. Rebuilding the nation after the cross country move was a slow, but begin to restore its activity to pre-2006 levels.

After a flurry of activity from pocket online groups, most of them white hat hacking forums, the new caretakers of the Regelis micronation opened up officially for public membership at the beginning of Wed 21 Sep 2011. Regelis has maintained that any interested individuals may join as a citizen of the nation at no cost. Regelis is adamant in maintaining no cost citizenship to any person capable of proving a proficiency of the English language. Members of the Regelian government stay in personal contact, and only except members to the government physically capable of occupying Regelian land.

Culture

Regelis has developed a clear ideology, and has expectations from its citizens when acting in public. Citizens are preferred to keep to themselves in public spaces, avoid conflict triggering actions, prevent violence, do not engage in disruptive speech, or display offensive imagery. At the same time venues are open to display freedom of speech and expression, with no threat of censorship. Organized public protest is permitted in any public area at any time, so long as it is determined to not infringe upon the rights of others.

Citizens are encouraged by the government to take competitive wages, and to work on their own self fulfilling projects. Because of the universal basic income that Regelis provides, it is expected that businesses incentivize the public to enter the workforce through quality of life programs, and tangible benefits. As a result of this government maintained economic program, the value of work has become vital to businesses who must compete to acquire skilled labor.

Secularism

The view of religious practice in Regelis is fairly neutral. Within the state and government, organized religion is a sparse occurrence. Practitioners and members of religious organizations are taxed for practice, as is any other citizen or company with a banking account. Regelis has no official religion, and references to religious iconography during state operations open a speaker up to a battery of questions. The tends to result in distrust of their ability to make rational decisions while operating their office.

Intellectual Property

Intellectual property rights differ depending on the type of intellectual property produced. For written works, in digital or physical media, copyrights last for the lifetime of the author and an additional 5 years after the authors death. This gives enough time for the estate to capitalize on works already in publication before entering the public domain. For unpublished work written by deceased author, the estate may only profit from the work for 5 years after its first publication.

Other media, such as artistic imagery, film, or audio music, copyrights from the original author last 20 years after first publication. After which they enter the public domain. Specifically excluded works include trademarks of company's, companies product's, logographic images, or icons identifying a specific brand name or product. Other digital media and production software only hold copyrights for 4 years after first distribution. This is version specific. Substantial changes must be made to the software within the period to quality for renewing the copyright of digital software distribution. Failure to do so opens it up to abandonware legislation, where such software and the intellectual property it contains may be reverse engineered by the community at large to maintain its continuity.

Relationships

Relationships in Regelis are viewed as personal matters, and marriage as a religious ceremony. Marriage is viewed is a promise of from one person to another to maintain monogamy within a relationship. Divorce is legally easy to perform, as separation is instantaneous. If only one party agrees, and there is not suitable prearranged contract, the separation processes immediately to allocation of possessions. Possession of belongings in a relationship are always treated the same regardless of the apparent quality or longevity of that relationship. They are split to the purchasers, and if neither can agree on an ownership of an object, it is claimed by the state instead. Custody is handled in a per case basis. Normally this is joint custody, but could be single custody is there is evidence of child or spousal abuse.

As a result of the view of marriage as a religious event, people are open to practice their religious views without fear of ostracization. Homosexual marriage is legal in the state of religious without any restrictions. If their religion does not allow homosexual marriage, the state will provide marriage service for them. Polygamous and polyamorous relationships are also legal. Polgamous marriages may also be performed by the state, however they do require complex premarital contracts forfeiting property in the event of partial separation. In the event of a difficult legal divorce case, the judge may liquidate all assets owned by all parties, then split the monetary earnings between them.

Community

Community activity is sporadic and varies seasonally, normally due to the schedule of the US education system, as there are a large number of citizens between the ages of 14 and 23. Regelis' primary means of communication with citizenship is its website, followed by and discord server, and further by its e-mailing lists. Community can interact with the government directly through e-mail, or contacting any member of the government over any instant chat service it uses, including twitter.

The citizenship community of Regelis is primarily local to the areas of Eastern Florida (Brevard County), Northeast Indiana (Allen County), and North Western Ohio (Defiance, Paulding, and Van Wert Counties). Local meetings take place in both Fort Wayne, IN; and Melbourne / Palm Bay, FL on a regular basis. These meeting discuss primarily laws of Regelis, the structure of government, and visions of the future.

National Symbols

Animal

Artistic representation of a phoenix, the national animal of Regelis.

Having Regelis' national animal be a mythical creature was careful choice, and it had many opponents until its symbolism was argued in the House of Associates. The phoenix represents transformation, rebirth, and death. The phoenix fire is used in the forge of all creation. Is a spiritual animal, it is more than just its appearance. In historical lore, it has been used as a symbol of renewal and power.

This symbol was chosen because, despite many hardships, reformations, differences in vision, and long periods of inactivity; Regelis never truly dies. Like the phoenix Regelis is an immortal being that sub-sequentially rises from its own ashes. From the reformation of the Kaos dictatorship, to monarchy, to democracy to the republic that Regelis is now. Through the merger of itself with other states such as Promatia. Through physical separation of members of government over distance and time. Regelis still survives. The phoenix reciprocates this as a symbol of longevity, the seasons, and protection. It is also known as a creature of vision, organization, and imagination. This beast fits the spirit of Regelis all around.

Game

An end game position of the 4000 year old board game Go.

Regelis' national game is Go. Go is a two player abstract strategy board game. The goal for each player is to claim more territory on the board than their opponent. Invented in the orient yearly 4,000 years ago, it is believe to be the longest continuously play board game in human history. Go is played by placing on a grid pieces called stones. Each player alternates placing a single stone on the board. One player is white, and the other is black. Once a stone is placed onto the Go board, it cannot be moved; unless it is captured by an opponent. Stones are captured by surrounding stones of your opponent's color with stones of your own color. Each grid square orthogonal to a stone is called a liberty. Once all of a stone's liberties are occupied by stones the opponent's color, it is removed from the board. Stones which share a color share their liberties. A group of stones which share liberties are much more difficult to capture than individual go stones.

Traditionally, Go is played on a 19 by 19 square grid. Players new to the game begin by practicing on Go boards of smaller size; 9 by 9, 13 by 13, then finally 19 by 19. The game has remained popular in South Korea for over 1500 years. Even though Go has simple rules, the game itself rapidly becomes very complex. Go has a much larger board, longer player, and more moves to consider than chess.[8]

Go players in Regelis are scored on an ELO Rating System ranking players from 30 Kyu to 10 Dan making up 50 total ranks. Each 3 percentile ranks a player by from 30 Kyu to 1 Kyu, where a 90 percentile player would be 1 Kyu. Beyond a single percentile ranks players from 1 Dan to 10 Dan, with the exception of the last percentile. The final percentile contains higher rated 9 Dan players. There is only one 10 Dan Go player in Regelis, which is the player with the highest ELO.

Matches of Go in Regelis consist of 6 games with players alternating black and white, with a 6.5 point Komi to white players. Matches that remain tied after game six continue into two extra games in order to break the tie. If this continues, the matches continue until a player is up two games over an opponent. If a player scores 4 games in a 6 game match, the match ends prematurely. Games end in Korean style territory scoring. The polite way to resign in Regelis is to play on the board a piece of your opponent's color.

Sport

An empty and beautifully polished crokinole board.

That national sport of Regelis is Crokinole. Crokinole is a dexterity board game for two to four players, invented in 19th century Canada. Each player sits on either side of the table, unable to move their seating after they have settled before starting the game. The player must then remain seated for the duration of the game, with at least one buttock must be contacting their seating at all times; while taking shots. Each player will start the game with a stacks of disks of their color. 3 stacks of 3 disks in a two player game. Or 2 stack of 3 disks in a four player team game. Players alternate shooting single disks across the board's well waxed wooden surface. Players must shoot using only their dominant hand, or a hand of their choosing before the game starts.[9]

After all players have taken their turns, any disks sunken in the middle hole during play are instantly removed from the board and are worth 20 points. Anything in the middle circle is worth 15 points, concentrically 10, and finally 5 points. The closer to the middle, the better a player scores. At the end of each round, the score of each player is totaled. The winner gets the difference of the point value, which accumulates over the course of the game. First player to 100 points, wins the game. In Regelis, matches are played over 12 games, each player alternating color and turn order. A player must be ahead by two games by the end of the match or play two additional extra games. Otherwise, if either player wins 8 games over the course of the match, the match ends prematurely.

If there are no disks on the board controlled by your opponent when shooting, if a shot does not land into the central circle it is removed from the board. If your opponent does have a disk on the board, in order to retain the disk you are shooting, you must contact an opponent's disk. This can be done with a carom shot, by hitting another one of your disks before hitting an opponents. However, if you fail to hit an opponent's disk, all disks of your own touched during that shot are removed from the board.

Flower

Gif of the Mimosa Pudica leaf movement.

The Mimosa Pudica, commonly referred to as Sky Princess is a viney fern-like flowering plant in same family as peas and legumes. This plant is a non-edible non-poisonous pantropical weed found in the southern United States, but exists on almost every continent. It grows in high light conditions and thrives in low-nutrient soils that can't support other plants.

Mainly grown as a novelty plant, its compound leaves fold inward quickly through rapid plant movement when touched. Due to Mimosa's unique response to touch, it became an ideal plant for many experiments regarding plant habituation and memory.[10] It's leaves typically remain open during the day, but close at night.[11] For this reason, this Mimosa genus plant is called pudica, which in Latin translates to bashful.

Mimosa Pudica's seed pods are quite large and easily harvested for their small, round peppercorn-like seeds. These seed pod are brambled collections of burred filaments much like small tumbleweeds. In many parts of the world, Mimosa Pudica is considered a invasive weed, and strongly effects tropical crops. Some crops it effects strongly are bananas, coconuts, coffee, corn, cotton, papaya, soybeans, sugar cane, and tomatoes. The plant also strongly effects the soil composition of the areas it invades, increasing the amount of ground nitrogen and potassium. The main branch of the plant is covered in sharp thorns next to each stem.

Tree

A flowering Weeping Yoshino tree. It's pink flowers of late spring.

The Weeping Yoshino Cherry Tree, or shidarezakura is child of hybrid Prunus speciosa and Prunus pendula cherry trees grafted with Prunus serrulata the common cherry blossom; Prunus × yedoensis|serrulata. The resulting tree, the Weeping Yoshino Cherry Tree has a very different appearance than the common cherry blossom, looking much more like a weeping willow tree. Often confused with a willow which is a salicylic acid producing evergreen plant, the Weeping Yoshino Cherry is a flowering tree of the Rose family.

The Weeping Yoshino Cherry occurs as a natural and artificial hybrid in Japan, and has been transplanted to the United States on several occasions; primarily in Washington D.C. It is one of the most popular, cultivated, and planted cherry tree variations worldwide. Unlike the common cherry blossom which is known for it large pink flowers, the flowers of the shidarezakura are quite small; but are far more numerous. They hang in dense bunches toward the ground like the willow tree, and similarly its branches also fall to the ground like those of a weeping willow, creating easy to retrieve bundles of flowers.

Most cultivars of cherry trees have a short lifespan of 30-40 years. However, the Weeping Yoshino Cherry's lifespan is unknown. Originally relatively uncommon hybrid, was formed naturally. The oldest known examples of shidarezakura have survived more than 300 years, and show no evidence of senesence.[12]. A fully grown tree has a trunk diameter between 2-3 meters, a height of 7-8 meters, and a width 10-15 meters. Hangings from tree are capable of reaching from the full height of the tree to the ground.[13] The shidarezakura grows rapidly, reaching 15 foot height in as little as 3 years, and full height in as few as 20. Because of its rapid growth, much like the willow tree it needs a substantial amount of water in order to sustain its growth; preferring areas with high precipitation. These trees easily survive cold winter temperatures, but their buds may be damaged when exposed to cold weather during the spring budding season, where temperatures below -2 C (28 F) damage flowering buds permanently.

Government

With this system of government, the leading party is chosen by the people determined by their range of credibility. The most credible and contribute to mankind as a whole should be elected to serve a term in office. The highest ranking official in office, is a Stace. A stace is a single member of a small council. This council's only function is to make the final decision as what new policies to enact upon the state. The Council of Staces, is informed by a publicly elected House of Associates. The House of Associates serves the role of a parliament, with staces acting as the main speakers. The associates within the house each represent one field within the eleven bodied government consortium. All associates act under one of the Staces, and report vital and influential data directly to the Council of Staces.

The Associates have a barrage of advisors that provide information to direct the associates' main focuses. Advisors, obtain information directly from scientists, researchers, and civilians within their given aspect of government. Advisors collect data to represent new policies provided by associates to be passed by the Council of Staces via popular vote. The Council of Staces then distributes orders to be followed by District Chairmen, to change public or international policy. In the event that any policy disregards any of the basic fundamental human rights. It can be declared “perilous aevum”, and disregarded in popular vote by the House of Judges. Otherwise, the House of Judges put the law into effect through district courts.

Structure

The Regelian structure of government.

Population makes up the foundation of the structural hierarchy of governmental power. The people democratically elect representatives from every part of the hierarchy from the individual team level, to the Council itself. Law enforcement and legal professionals are hired from the pool of public career workers. Scientists and researchers come from education spaces, academic centers, and colleges. District chairs are traditionally grown from grassroots lobby groups, and public interest electoral committees. Public speakers make their way up the political ladder.

From this level of development, scientists and researchers might be poached from organizations and teams by the government to become advisors leading their respective fields of study. District courts will tend to seek skilled law enforcement personnel, or experienced legal practitioners to serve the justice system under district or regional courts. Districts each have their own judges, chairmen, and advisory committees. Districts are areas of the nation grouped into similar sizes. There is no limit the numbers of these districts, and mainly serve as arbitrary divisions to cut the overhead of managing a large unified group of people. District chairs will usually do what they can in the people's best interest. With enough public speaking experience will eventually make their way through the ranks, ending up as secretaries of state.

The last level of government is the House of Associates, built from advisors contained within districts. By being leaders in their fields, they will presumably promote the best suggestions of leadership. This voting republic is in the best interest to ease their own line of work, give a means for clear optimization of systems they use, and suggest quality of life improvements for themselves. The House of Councils should contain the secretaries that communicate with elected Premieres to promote advice from the House of Associate's. These suggestions should be put into action as these suggestions interest everyone in their own ministry. Through this selfishness of the ministries, the whole of the House of Councils moves efficiently. Populous based ministries take their leadership generally from politicians, field leaders, and the academic hierarchy so that both associates and secretaries have a clear line of succession (through death, abandonment, or election) to all of the ministries' positions. Lastly of course the House of Judges, voted in by their peers, stands to act as the moral leadership of Regelis. With the ability to veto and enforce law with direct access to district courts, should the House of Councils bypass the 1st appeal stage.

Regelis' Governmental System in Popular Culture

Solid parallels can be made between the design of Project Zero Dawn from the game Horizon Zero Dawn, and the Regelian House of Councils.

Not to be confused with a claim of Regelis influencing the development of Horizon Zero Dawn; Project Zero Dawn itself is eerily similar in design to Regelis' governmental structure. At least in relation to Gaia's subordinate systems. In the game, Gaia, an artificial intelligence charged with the continuity of the human species after the accidental destruction of life on earth by the Faro Plague[14]; is given charge over 9 subordinate systems named after greek gods. These being Aether, Apollo, Artemis, Demeter, Eleuthia, Hades, Hephaestus, Minerva, and Poseidon. These 9 systems are each a compartmentalized unit, which is subordinate to Gaia.[15] Contrasted, is Regelis' own 11 ministries, which is subordinate to the House of Councils.

This comparison is further supported when compared individually between the subordinate systems of Gaia, and the ministries.

Aether, and Poseidon are responsible for detoxifying the earth's air and water, much in the way that the Natustace exists to reverse human environmental damage. Apollo, archives all human history and culture, existing to educate future human generations. Regelis's Comustace ministry creates a store of all scientific knowledge for educating the public. Eleuthia, who rebuilds the human population through cloning and the raising of children, similar to Indistace which holds values of family-building, teaching, and communicating with people. Hades which reverses incorrect operation and execution of commands. like the Judistace that reverses decisions made by Regelis' executive branch. Hephaestus serves as Zero Dawn's protection system, constructing machines to protect the continuity of Gaia. Just as the Armistace of Regelis serves to protect the continuity of Regelis. Minerva bruteforces the Faro activation codes, gathering data to make a computational attack against them; as Regelis' Ferastace ministry acts through cybernetic infrastructure as the cyber-military branch of Sentry.

The only allegories that can't be made between the two are Artemis and Demeter, whose purpose is to catalog the DNA of all species on earth. As well as Regelis' Popustace, Monistace, and Emisstace, due to Project Zero Dawn not needing to operate functions of state and government. Broadly though, the two are very similar. Regelis' governmental structure has existed as early as 2005 as Kaos' government, with charts showing the structure of government made in September 2013.[16]

Armistace Ministry

Armistace promotional image.

Primarily, the Armistace exists to maintain peacetime readiness, and to manage military manpower. There are five branches in the military of Regelis. Of these branches, exist the Guard, Navy, Air Force, ROSE, and Sentry. The Guard houses the states external ground forces, The Navy for sea, The Air Force for Air, and of course The ROSE to secure the homeland from foreign invaders. A branch that you may not be so familiar with the state calls The Sentry, that protects the nation and its residency from attacks through its cyber-security infrastructure. As a general rule of war, the military force in Regelis is not to be managed as a sword. Rather, the force acts as a shield to protect its people from the threat of foreign policy. The Armistace will to the best of their ability provide public knowledge relating to sensitive military operations and advances, while at best avoiding breaches of national security. Please note that Regelis does formally recognize a six-star military rank, in the form of the Secretary of Arms, who does have operating authority over all five branches of Regelis' military force. The Armistace and Vicestace will mitigate the Secretary of Arms, and action may only be placed in the result of a majority vote among the government council. The Armistace is this six-star officer.

Comustace Ministry

Comustace promotional image.

Managing the workforce of any state will be a daunting job for any one person. Under control of the Comistace are Associates for; Corporate Enterprise, Incomes and Wages, Labor, Logistics, and Standards. Management of wages paid for contribution of civilian man-hours will be strictly up to the employer. However, legislation related to the minimum wages that must be paid by field will be the duty of the Associate of Incomes and Wages, and Labor. Exchanges in actual monetary return will be left to the Monistace, and Economic Secretaries. The Comistace must attempt to limit the spread of corporate enterprise, and to prevent the development of substandard goods. Goods like these that would normally be produced in order to reduce company costs and the cost of their products on the consumer. They will also direct manpower to progress the overall technology level of the state and maintain critical infrastructure. The maintenance of logistics systems in order to calculate the maximum efficiency of resources and transport of goods and service will be a duty imposed on the Comistace, as well as the standardization of weights and measures. Regelis will use the metric system of measurement for all trade, national and international. Where the Comistace controls the logistics of international and internal shipping, the Monistace will work with the Emistace to decide the specifics of what may be shipped, as well as international tariffs and taxes.

Emisstace Ministry

Emisstace promotional image.

Political, or otherwise, refuges are an issue to most nations and must be dealt with in a sensitive manor. Information gathering from the office of the Indistace will be assessed in order determine the status of states worldwide. The Emisstace will grant asylum and protection by the state of Regelis from oppressive government powers at no cost to such refuges. National standards will be set in place, as no place of business will be required to communicate in a language other than English for any purpose. Direct communication in English is mandatory. Regelis does mandate that communication from businesses to their consumers for economic reasons provide a universal communication medium in the form of English, and in a base 10 number system. In a primary example, a business may list its ordering options in the form of English and in a foreign language; however ordering must not require a foreign name to be included but simply an order number. Remember that English is Regelis' national language. While mandating international trade regulations may be required, the office of the Emisstace also mitigates international affairs in an attempt to minimize classism, especially as a basis of political agenda. Political diplomacy will not normally be handled by the Emisstace, but rather the Secretary of International Affairs.

Ferastace Ministry

Ferastace promotional image.

The addition of the Ferastace into our governmental system gives Regelis a unique advantage over other states in such a connected world. Minimizing the effect of cybercrime related activities mitigated by the Ferastace, and the actual opposing force will be managed by the Armistace in direct control of The Sentry. Effective implementation of a state or worldwide social network with Regelis Government oversight will be provided free charge. This social network must be managed to protect the citizenship, and offer a truly free democratic voting system to the entire population, limited only by age and education standards. This network be made free, through public access, the government agenda and all policies. They will be criticized in great detail in an environment without censorship, in order to correct injustices imposed on the citizenship by the threat of corrupt government figureheads. As well is a censor free environment for discussion, this social network will log communication. Not for the reason of intruding on basic rights of privacy. In an supervised environment in order to reinforce social interaction, and best serve the communication capabilities of the public. Networking will be monitored to determine people in the citizenship that should be dealt with in a manor alternative to the usual standard. If there is a citizen for some reason with an extraordinary amount of “Denials For Communication” there may be a reason illegitimate. Reasons for these “Denials” may be sent to data centers for review, and to our intelligence offices for investigation. Reporting falsified, incriminating information may incite a penalty on the petitioner. This is a service provided to protect the public. Instead of closing off the government to our citizenship, Regelis seeks to mitigate standards in behavior to establish a moral equilibrium for the purpose of establishing rule of law. If a citizen has a problem with the way in which Regelis provides this service or how it is monitored, then they may freely discuss this with the government in the open forum the service creates. Ironically, making much argument to the legitimacy of states view of privacy rights known to every member of the public both national and international.

Indistace Ministry

Indistace promotional image.

The intelligence community of Regelis manages the eminence data processes involved in analyzing public information. It represents both the public view, and informs people of the general state of the nation's communal infrastructure. Maintaining and improving the quality of communication channels in the state and at the civilian level helps with the transfer of free information. General acquisition of knowledge is a resource, and contribution to a publicly available research archive will be made at all available times. The civilian population will take these contributions to research and may use it without repercussions for the purpose of general education. In the office of the Indistace lies the responsibility of making sure that government powers do not use personal civilian data for illicit purposes. Analyzing data from the social network of Regelis and the information it contains will be up to this office, as well as the Associates of Census and Information. Communications deal with all mediums of direct communication; internet, phone, radio, and video. Know that there is no person in direct control of censorship. The act of radio and video censorship in entertainment channels is actually overseen by the office of the Popustace.

Judistace Ministry

Judistace promotional image.

The Judistace manages law enforcement entities. Because the Law Enforcement organizations are mostly controlled in city sized jurisdictions, and the civilian population, not the military, is employed in a position of judicial power, the office of the Judistace must manage these law enforcement entities at the state level. This office also has power to issue executive order, in the event of a national disaster, such as to instate Marshall Law. Locating and focusing the nations manpower to repair the effects of such a national tragedy, and then literally implementing suggested actions to efficiently rectify its effects on the state, its people, and its economy will be a duty imposed on the Judistace as well. In general, the Judistace will manage a higher court in the form of The House of Judges. Management of the entire justice system will be imposed on the Secretary and Associate of Justice. The Judges of the House and District Judges will self-mediate. The Judistace will oversee the nation's penal system, and will implement all written law. District judges and Judges of the House will provide free legal representation from prosecuting authorities for the citizenship without compensation.

Monistace Ministry

Managing the logistics and efficiency of general goods and service, general “work compensation”, financial assistance, and provisional services for the good of the public at large will be in the hands of this office. General efficiency of resource acquisition, and material production methods will be monitored in order to protect the environment and consumers they may purchase such products. The state had to keep a constant watchful eye on the movement of inequitable resource gain and the fair distribution of those resources to businesses in the state. It will be up to the government Council to determine what is a “fair” level of economic competition. Taxation in general is managed by this office, and the taxation of larger corporate enterprises will be strained in order to resist their influence over the public domain. While large corporations like this may exist, they will require a much more exhausting toll for trade than smaller companies. Regelis' social network will be used at the premiere method of trade, and will be electronically equalized. This will in able trade in any elemental resource medium; especially Copper, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Palladium (called the 1B+78 Standard), of which will be the basic standard of Regelis' economy. In addition perishable agricultural resources, (like corn, wheat, and soybeans) and livestock may be traded easily in this social medium in the form of stocks. Regelis' social network can provide a live auction house for every member of its community and even trade internationally. Other economic valuing resources, not as perishable, including but not limited to; Cocoa, Coffee, Cotton, Oil, Natural Gas, and Sugar #11 may be a basis for the states economy. Rare metals such as Iridium and Uranium, and metals refined in bulk like; Aluminum, Cobalt, Iron and Steel, Tin, Titanium, and Tungsten may also base the economy at the trade currency level.

Natustace Ministry

The office of the Natustace has the important role of regulating Regelis' environmental impact upon the planet. They provide the testing of toxic emissions and chemicals into the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. This office is also responsible for maintaining the delicate balance between human life and the lives of the numerous species of Earth. They catalog the plant, animal, fungal, bacterial, and viral species into referenceable systems; for use by other government agencies. The Natustace works with school systems and colleges to provide useful information about chemical compound, biological life, and anthropological history. For chemicals, this ministry provides material safety data information, regulate the appropriate personal protective equipment used in the processing of volatile compounds. The most important job the office of the Natustace has is the regulation of agriculture and livestock production. They analyze the land, supply cartography, and mark areas safe for mining or processing into usable materials. All construction projects are registered with the office of the Natustace, to make sure they follow the environmental standards and safe practices.

Popustace Ministry

Popustace promotional image.

The Popustace ministry of Regelis has the single goal of representing the intrests of the citizens of Regelis, people wishing to seek protection of Regelis, an humanity in general. They speak for, support, and represent the people at large in all matters public and private. This job requires the acquisition of large amounts of information to make informed judgements on the public's behalf. Therefore this ministry handles all polling, census information. They work with Indistace who stores and secures that census data, helping distribute it to organizations that request the information, and providing it to branches of government. This helps create informed decision making based on popular demand. The Popustace speaks directly only on results of popular majority opinion to bring compromise on any issues, delivering the concerns of the public through feedback request directly to the House of Councils during house sessions. Additionally, this ministry is responsible for maintaining and resolving copyright issues, freedom of speech, expression, and religion issues; as well and enforcing legal mandates upon organizations representing copyright, speech, religion, expression, charities, political action committees, or the people's right to public protest.

Remistace Ministry

The healthcare of the citizens of Regelis is of vital importance to its government. The Remistace ministry is responsible for the management of all emergency services. This includes, but is not limited to, EMS stations, hospitals, fire departments, mental and behavioral health, civil police, special tactics, crisis negotiation, bomb disposal, environmental protection, forest rangers, and avalanche response. It is the duty of the Premiere to maintain and organize the hierarchical structure and protocol each service requires, working with the office of the Monistace to budget state funds for these programs, and supply teams nationwide the equipment needed to effectively perform their duties. The duties of the Remistace do not stop at the emergency services, as they are also responsible for civilian health crises and epidemic response. As well as medical research, advocating progress in the field of medicine, the distribution of vaccination; and communication with the Office of the Emiistace for international research effort. They must supply centers of learning with all the full bounty of scientific medical knowledge, and redistribute advances in medicine in a clear an unambiguous manor. The Remistace has the civil responsibility to make medical care, treatment, and medications as inexpensive to the citizens of Regelis as humanly possible.

Socistace Ministry

Socistace promotional image.

The Socistace Ministry is the office of Regelis with the worst public perception. Often seen as a producer of Regelian propaganda, they service more functions that simply this. While they do produce and promote the Regelis to the outside world, they are also responsible for promoting locations of interest, tourism centers, public works, events, and conventions. They work closely with the Emisstace to strategize the best place to assert Regelian influence into centers of trade, Regelian co-operation on international projects, and the acquisition of specialized extranational STEM workers; incentivizing them to migrate to Regelis, through human captial flight.

Additionally, the Socistace is solely responsible for all national education and the contents of the public education curriculum nationwide. The Socistace office is required to provide primary, secondary, and university education centers, schools, libraries, and other centers of learning the tools needed for students to become more knowledgeable. For centers of research, the Socistace makes available a statewide public information database to be used for scientific research, technological process, computer programming, and invention. The service is accessed through infrastructure provided by the Ferastace and Indistace ministries and is intended to be free of charge. This database is meant to contain all current scientific knowledge and research accessible through database query. The Socistace is responsible for copy-typing non-fiction books, and scientific papers to better digitize them.

Economy

Image depicts the Regelian currency account management software. It automatically pays out the Universal Basic Income for Regelis, taxes citizens, and manages account transfers.

The base unit of currency used in Regelis is the Houro. This currency is pinned to the value of a person hour. The total currency in circulation of the nation is determined by the following formula: 8766 × population. This money is strictly maintained by a computerized balancing system. This version of the currency is kept in equilibrium with the nations universal basic income. For this reason the Houro is digital only currency with its accounts controlled directly by the national treasury and bank, under the Monistace.

Universal Basic Income

Each working class citizen, persons of the working age of 15, regardless of their ability to or willingness to work is paid a weekly stipend. This stipend is Regelis' universal basic income. Each day every eligible citizen is paid exactly 8 Houros, minus taxes, to do with whatever they please. This is given to maintain or assist individuals over the line of poverty. The Houros issued by the state are indistinguishable from currency earned though work, and are grouped into the same personal account. Sharing this account with another Regelian is not possible, fee free transactions can be made between any account.

Demurrage as Taxation

The universal basic income of Regelis serves as an economic class balance and income re-distrobution-like system. Because of the amount given each day, and equal amount must be taken from the economy to balance out expenses. This form of taxation is a demurrage that universally removes a small percentage percent from the account of every account in the Regelis banks each day. After this amount is removed, it is redistributed to every working class citizens in equal measure. This taxation liquidates currency from large holders in order to incentivize spending, and give to lower income individuals also to incentivize spending.[17] This is a form of income redistribution, it is more direct, but far less impactful on people with large holding account. The balance of this currency will mean that in general keeping more than 1 years salary in an account will prevent earning of a universal basic income. Having more will cause a person to begin to lose their savings. There is a separate savings account not impacted by this demurrage, to which depositing will effect the national holdings. National holding are valued in resources like precious metals. Private holdings do not effect national holdings, and are the preferred method by which to store personal wealth in Regelis. Purchasing and holding products or items of intrinsic value are encouraged. These items are not taxable by the government of Regelis.

Advantages & Disadvantages

The primary criticism of the Regelian currency system, is that retaining funds in a single citizen account is dangerous. Any amount of money in a citizen account would be liquidated completely after 1 calendar year, if that person did not move their funds to a dedicated savings account. This would happen even faster if Regelis' Houro reserve is expended due to a high velocity exchange of currency for government programs and the military. It could tax a citizen's account to liquidation in as little as 4 months.

Furthermore, Houro savings accounts are not designed to be malleably swapped between citizen spending accounts and savings accounts. Saving account partition government holdings, and require a citizen to either register holdings with the government for secure storage or have an amount of holdings allocated to them through a transfer of asset RID's the or division of an asset to the savings account. The process can take several weeks, and is not intended to allow instantaneous transfer between spending and holdings. In a situation where Regelis is caught with a high monetary velocity, and little in store, the transfer time could cause a citizen to lose several percent of their spending account to taxes before it can be secured reliably.

The storage of assets themselves are a weakness of this system. In order to verify holdings, the Office of the Monistace is required to be in physical possession of, and maintain that possession of large quantities of precious resources, metals, valuable items, artworks, estates, and arbitrary objects. These items require cataloging into the assets management system through RID tagging. Because often, the value of precious metals, gemstones, and objects is at anytime arbitrary. A realtime log of the value of these objects needs to be maintained. Depending on the scale of such a log, and the number of objects in holding; the total value of holdings can vary widely; especially if the conversion rate of the Houro weakens. Even moreso, it acts as a single weak vector of attack in the event of a malicious actor, who could destabilize the economy by thieving the held materials; or simply destroy them.

1B+78 Standard (Precious Metals)

20 troy ounces of silver from the Regelian Treasury.

Tiered economic strategies will be enforced to make sure that if perishables are used as economic standard for Regelis, that it will be equalized through the economy by gross weight. The value of the basic currency unit of will be standardized to particular molecular weight of the 1B+78 Standard, which will change with the price of 1B+78 Standard elements at any given time. 1B+78 Standard, if absolutely necessary can be changed to another standard at any time.

Any citizen may request their currency be exchanged for the 1B+78 Standard, under the advice that the currency does in fact have value; also that withdrawing such resources may weaken the economy, the power of our currency in the international market, and that such resources are safer in the hands of the government. The citizen does retain physical ownership of the resources in the form of currency units. Regelis' social network makes it easy to trade in the currency and in 1B+78 Standard at the same time. This value of the standard currency unit and exchange rate to the physical 1B+78 Standard is available in real time, to any person nationally and internationally. In the essence of foreign trade, Regelis will attempt to gather foreign currencies in order to exchange them through trade to additional 1B+78 Standard resources.

In short, any citizen may withdraw requested resources from the government. However, rather than having such resources in the unpredictable environment that is the public domain, having such materials guarded by the Guard of Regelis' military is much more likely to protect nation's economic structure. As a standard, 1 currency unit will be equal to minimum wage of the world's strongest economy other than Regelis. This is theory would make the Regelis economy the strongest in the world, however, this concept is countered by another country doing the same with their own currency at a lower unit value. Currency is scalar, there is no be no inflation in the economy of Regelis. Because the economy of Regelis will be electronically equalized, an unseen floating decimal of nine 9 places will exist. The currency symbol for the Houro is H.

Military

The military of Regelis is divided into 5 branches each representing a domain of war.

Domain Branch Purpose
Land Guard To defend the land of Regelis through superior performance. Regelis' land troops are not referred to as an army, because they are trained not to expect extranational attack. Rather they are trained on homeland soil to protect the nation itself, as a shield rather than a sword. As is the national motto of Regelis.
Air Air Force Defends the airspace of Regelis. Almost all planned aircraft of the military are fighter interceptors, with some air carriers, and very few reconnaissance aircraft. Because Regelis does not intend to act internationally, it performs multi-role operations for national defense.
Sea Navy One of the few domains that Regelis operates internationally within. It is planned that the navy of Regelis will be its strongest branch and fighting force. Existing to protect the international interests and shipping vessels of the nation, they maintain and which Regelian ships in international waters.
Space ROSE Co-operating with the military is the Regelis Office of Space Exploration (ROSE) which maintains military equipment in space, and moving forward an agenda. This agenda consists of space colonization, the construction of space stations, and Regelian militarization of the space domain. Under the assumption it would otherwise be a threat to a vulnerable Regelis'.
Cyberspace Sentry The most important domain of Regelis in this age of information is the Sentry. This cybermilitary branch defends the nation against extranational attacks, frauds, computer crimes, and child endangerment or exploitation. Along with the Sentry is Regelis' intelligence office First Intelligence; Second Tactics (FIST), which gathers information for the nation's military benefit.

ROSE

The rondel meatball of the Regelis Organization of Space Exploration.

Despite its name, the Regelis Organization of Space Exploration (ROSE) is intra-military branch of the Regelian miliary's five domain of war organizational structure. The official job of ROSE is to act as a general purpose space exploration organization, with the intention of settling and permanently occupying space in the complete sense. Members of this organization are simultaneously enlisted personnel of the Regelian military, even though most do not perform military duties, and are assigned to instead complete scientific research objectives. However, some of the resources allocated to ROSE are used to fund military project, objectives, and satellite launches. ROSE also intends to weaponize its spacecraft in the event of international 4th domain war.[18][19]
