Imperial Decrees in the Imperial Union of Edenia are laws passed by the Emperor. Introduced with the enactment of the Edenian Constitution of 2017, Imperial Decrees apply to the whole Union and can overturn or amend any statutes other than the Constitution itself.
Imperial Decrees can be passed unilaterally and without the advice nor consent of the legislature, the Committee on the State of the Union. There are, however, certain policy areas which Decrees may not affect without Committee support, mainly in the sphere of foreign affairs; for instance, the Emperor may not go to war with another nation without the support of two-thirds of the Committee.
