Etymology

During the first government of Landt (at the time called the Unified Court Authority) the main leaders of the nation decided to transform the country from a nation ruled by the courts to a nation ruled by the people. For this total upheaval of the government they decided that a renaming was appropriate, one of the founders came up with the name of Landt (Dutch for Nation) and so the Landt Republic was born. Years later after changing government style several times, it has finally settled into an Anarchist Republic. Today the nation is called what the main council is called, the General Council of Landt.

Government Structure

Foreword

Though technically there is no structure to the government of Landt as it works in a fluid democracy this article will first cover each section of the government starting with the General Council and ending with the abilities and duties of each citizen. All citizens are invited to look through this article and fix any mistakes they see. All government positions, save for that of the Premier, are voted for on the 1st of every second month and then those voted in are seated at the 15th of the next month at 12:00 UTC. The Premiers have their election held on the 5th of every fourth month and are seated on the 15th of the following month at 1:00 UTC.

General Council

The General Council of Landt is the legislative body of Landt. It is made up of the Premiers (secretaries) of each council, which we will go over later. The job of the General Council is to be the mouthpiece of the people. Though any and all citizens can propose and vote for or against legislation, the members of the general council have the full time job of writing, proposing, voting on, and arguing over legislation. The main reason to have full time members of the general council is to ensure that the government is constantly working and to provide an actual structure for the people to interact with the government and to prevent the main grouping of councils from filling the power void that the lack of legislature would bring.

To pass legislation a Conspector (full time legislator) or Citizen proposes legislation and the Premier Major either immediately puts it on the voting docket for the next voting day or denies it's access to the docket. At this point the Conspectors and Citizens can call for an overrule vote (which can only pass with a 60% yea vote). This overrules the Premier Major's decision and forces the proposal onto the docket. The other way that legislation can get onto the voting block is called a Instant Proposal. Instant proposals are items that are proposed and immediately voted on after a debate period. These proposals go into effect immediately after being voted upon if passed.

After legislation is proposed and scheduled for a voting day it goes for a debate period. Debate periods last until an item is voted on and can be extended by the Premier Major or through a 80% yea vote on an extension proposal. Once the voting day arrives for a document, those who wish to vote can vote. Any measures (except for war resolutions) pass with a 60% yea vote.

Defense Council

The Defense Council of Landt is directly responsible for the protection of and organizing the armed forces of Landt. It is comprised of several different branches which are each headed by their own smaller councils not unlike the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the US. It currently executes over one branch, the Peoples Expeditionary Corps.

The Peoples Expeditionary Corps is a militia-like unit comprised of forces with relaxed regulations and training. They operate under Insurgency Doctrine where the main focus is to blend in amongst the populous of the enemy and carry out strategic raids or ambushes from within. Because of this doctrine, some laws of war are broken such as disguising yourself as a civilian. In the eyes of Landt "nothing the major powers don't already do."

History

Creation

At first, the founders were a group who dedicated themselves to carrying out anonymous espionage and reconnaissance missions against micronations for micronations. Eventually, the founders decided that they were tired of working for lands they did not belong to and create a homeland for themselves. This resulted in the first iteration of the republic, the Unified Court Authority.
