Imperial Decrees of the Monarch of Adammia

In the Empire of Adammia, Imperial Decrees are a form of primary legislation issued by the Monarchy of Adammia through the Office of the Emperor/Empress. The Ruling Council and the House of Citizens review all Imperial Decrees and either house can vote to overturn them; this is a counter-balance to the Monarch's power to veto Acts of Parliament.


Formally, both Imperial Decrees and Acts of Parliament have equal scope, each able to apply to any area of Adammic law. However, over time informal conventions have arisen, and and certain areas of law are traditionally seen as the domain of Imperial Decrees. These include the affairs of the Monarchy itself, the chivalric orders, heraldry, the management of the Military of Adammia (reflecting the Emperor's position as Grand Marshal), the appointment of nobles, and territorial management (such as the establishment of new claims and the dissolution of defunct claims). Diplomatic recognition is usually done by Decree, although Acts relating to diplomacy are not unheard of.

NOTING (Preamble),
BE IT DECREED as follows:


This, the (Number - "forty-third") Imperial Decree of Our Imperial Majesty (Monarch name - "Adam the First"), Emperor of Adammia, (Rest of titles - "Count of Penmine and Spildcastle, Lord Chancellor of State, Grand Admiral etcetera"), is decreed at (Location) in the (Province / County / Colony / etc.) of (Subdivision name) on this the (Day - "eighth") day of (Month - "October"), (Year - "two-thousand and sixteenth year") of the Common Era and the (Number - "fourth") year of Our reign, and is signed into immediate effect.

(Date and time - "8th October 2016 05:02")

(Date in numerals - "VIII.X.MMXVI") (Day of reign in numerals - "CCLXXXII.IV.ADAMVS I")

When a Decree is signed in the United Kingdom, the subdivision named is based on historic county boundaries. Counties ending in -shire are not named explicitly, but are instead referred to as "the County of (county town)". Therefore, an example of a given location would be "Edgbaston in the County of Warwick", as Edgbaston was historically part of Warwickshire despite currently being part of the administrative county of West Midlands.
