Article 5-The Bank

The bank of Roscamistan provides funding to the military ( see article 6) and the ministers of state. Funding will be split equally by the minister of finance.

  2. Payment will be sent by mail
  3. Members of state will be encouraged to donate regularly to the state.

Article 6- Military

The military is a separate branch of state. There is system of militias in Roscamistan. These will be ruled by various commanders, who will be instructed by the Defence Secretary and the President as Commander in Chief. This is how payment works:

Payment and ranks

Yes you heard right, you will get payment for doing nothing! And even more if something actually happens ( highly unlikely practically impossible)! So here’s how it works:

Commander:( leader of the militia)

Contact renewal payment:€0 ( contact must be renewed every 3 months) but sadly as commander no contact for me.

Daily war wage 50cent: When war starts and the mervustan militia gets activated you automatically get a daily payment that will be payed at the end of a war. ( it builds up every day)

Battle bonus:€5 if an actual battle is fought ( and won) you get a battle bonus ( it adds up every battle)

End of war bonus: Rights to a victory parade ( if we win)

Captain: Second in command ( you)

Contract renewal payment:€5

Daily war wage: 25 cent

Battle bonus: €3

Daily war wage: 20 cent

Battle bonus: €2

End of war bonus: €2:50

Vice captain:Third in command

Contract renewal payment: €3

Daily war wage: 20 cent

Battle bonus: €2

End of war bonus: €2:50

Corporal : Average soldier

Contract renewal payment:€2

Daily war wage: 20 cent

Battle bonus:€1:50

Private: New recruit

Contact renewal:€1:50

Daily war wage: 10cent

Battle bonus:€1

End of war: €2

You will not have to undergo any military training to join the militia however to access your war payments you must muster at the location given to get details on the war ( again this is just a scenario)(highly unlikely practically impossible). Firearms will be provided in the unlikely event of war ( water guns, nerf guns possibly water balloons and I know it’s sounds incredibly stupid ( it is) but what else can you do when your a Republic that is recognised by no others republic)

In order to join a militia you must sign a contract!

Article 7-Presidential Ceremony:

-The ceremony will begin on the 18th of February

-The ceremony will begin with a  parade of the military.(This will take place at the holy family church)

  • Then the 12 flag bearers will parade
  • Then the old president will present the new president with a flag of Roscamistan.
  • Then they will cross the road to the playground and the new president will fly the flag on top of the high platform.
  • He will then be saluted by crowd and a feast will begin!
  • The anthem will then be sang

This will be one of the two roscami national holidays, they are:

February 18- Founding date
