Government of Regelis
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 Premiere. A Premiere 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 House of Councils, is informed by a publicly elected House of Associates. The House of Associates serves the role of a parliament, with premieres 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 premieres, and report vital and influential data directly to the House of Councils.
The House of 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 House of Councils via popular vote. House of Councils 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.
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
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; 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. 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.— Shawn F. - Premiere Popustace, Regelis National Authority
