The The Holy Roman Empire of Flevelt is a extinct self declared Sovereign State, commonly referred to as a "Micronation" founded on June 12, 2016 and converted into a Confederation by october of 2016.
The Latin Empire of Flevelt is named so after the great germanic Holy Roman Empire of western Europe. Flevelt is a traditional term use to refer to "one who works with water." The Prefix "Holy Roman" was added to the empire after the first Emperor Kyle of Hesslin claimed the title King of pavia-Jerusalem.
The Holy Roman Empire of Flevelt was founded after the member states of the Confederation of Folsom voted on forming a Empire. The Prince-Primate Kyle of Hesslin was elected Latin Emperor on June 12, 2016 . The Member states Hesslin, Mont-Rouge, and Mont-Fleury were the founding members of the empire. Later the Grand Duchy of Pavia, the Tsardom and Despotate of melvak, and the Electoral Emirate of Clevia were formed and granted seats in the Imperial Diet. Currently, the Kingdom of the Oda is lobbying for a seat in the Imperial Diet as well.
Government and politics
The Latin Empire of Flevelt holds three governing bodies: The Emperor and his deputies" The Emperor hold the powers of pardon and veto over all institutions and subjects. In addition he may call a meeting of the Imperial diet, command the Imperial Army, may exile a subject found guilty of a crime of the second degree or higher, holds authority over the Great Council of state, and may enact Imperial edicts and directives to any governing institution. The Great Council of state acts as enactors of the Emperor. The Lord High Chancellor writes government papers, heads foreign affairs, acts as keeper of the the Great Seal, and is head of the Imperial Chancellery. The Grand Marshal commands the Imperial Army and in times of war is commonly proclaimed the Imperial Field Marshal General of the Empire and leads the Holy Roman Imperial or National Army. The Palatine acts as chief Justice of the empire and the Emperor's personal representative to both foreign and native peoples. The Gonfaloniere of the empire is the standard bearer of the empire and is a king of arms of sorts. The Vassal-In-Chief is the highest noble and is the representative of the nobility and people to the Emperor. The Master secretary organizes and records meetings of the council. The Imperial Diet: The Imperial Diet is the highest legislature of the empire. The Imperial diet is formed by the seven Electors which may pass laws and elect the new emperor. Each Elector hails from a different “vassal state” of the empire. The Nobility and their deputies: The Nobility are a collection of hereditary and even some elected persons who act as a governors of the regions of the empire. The nobles not representative of the emperor, they rule in their own right and may make local laws and appointed local officials. However, the nobles may not act in a dystopic or cruel way and may be challenged by his/her people. All nobles bear titles and may style themself lord or lady.
Law and order
Justice in Flevelt is seen as one of the most important aspects of government. The chief judges of the empire are the Palatine and the Emperor. Both share the power to oversee a Court of Law however the Palatine almost always uses this power instead of the Emperor. The “Police” of the empire are local Bailiffs, gentry, and Nobility. There are three decrees of crime. The first Decree of crimes are murder, armed robbery, and other forms of bodily harm which will result in one being exiled and handed over to the criminal’s native authorities. Second degree crimes are High Treason, financial and real estate fraud, and unarmed robbery which will result in exile imprisonment and potentially another form of specific punishment. Third degree crimes are Treason, abuse of power, and other forms of corruption which are punishable by fine and remove of office.

The military of Flevelt is comprised of two components. The Imperial Army is commanded by the Grand Marshal, who is almost always also the Gonfaloniere of the Empire. The Imperial Army is the personal army of the Emperor and can be called the empire’s standing army.

Army is always lead by the emperor and a Field Marshal General chosen by the Imperial Diet. The Imperial Diet must be consulted before the H.R.E. Army is raised.
