This country is an Absolute Hereditary Monarchy. In this country, the King makes the laws. If a commoner wants to request a law, that is allowed, as long as it doesn’t remove power from any of the royals. If it removes power from any of the royals, that is considered treason. The King also enforces the laws. The military, police, and Royal Family are allowed to arrest people. If someone is suspected of breaking the law, they are brought to the Royal Palace, where the King will decide if they are innocent, or guilty. If they are innocent, they will be brought back where they were found. If they are guilty, they are kept in a holding cell for 3 days. They then have a meeting with the King. They then are kept in the holding cell for another 3 days. Finally, they are brought to a courtroom to decide the punishment. The Royals state their recommended punishment, in order of seniority, then the citizens can vote on what punishment to do- Either one the Royals recommended or they can choose their own. If the guilty party is under the age of 12, age and crime matter when choosing a punishment. If the guilty party is 12 or older, just the crime matters. The majority wins. 2 life imprisonments (the guilty party and their closest blood relative stay in prison for the rest of their lives), life imprisonment (the guilty party stays in prison for the rest of their life), forced servitude (being a personal attendant of the Royal Family), and the death penalty (death by electric chair or drownding) are legal punishments. If after 1 week the King wants to change the punishment, they can- with no voting.
The Royal Family follows female-preference primogeniture (with some exceptions). All Monarchs are called King, no matter their gender. In the Line Of Succession, there can only be 1 Prince or Princess. Only the First-In-Line gets the title. A Queen is the King’s Dog. The King’s Spouse is whoever is married to the King. If a King and King’s Spouse divorce, the person born as a commoner will be stripped of their fortune, title, and extra rights. You cannot abdicate unless you are a King. If all of the Royals die, the Head of the Royal Guard becomes King. All royals have 10 guards. The King and First-In-Line get 25. All royals are above the law, except for not trying to kill/insult their superiors.
Head Of The Royal Guard
The Head of the Royal Guard is also a hereditary position. The First King and the First Head of the Royal Guard are first cousins. If the Head of the Royal Guard dies, their oldest child becomes Head of the Royal Guard, or they can choose to pass the position on to the next person in line. The people in this succession line are brought to a house to train every summer until they become Head of the Royal Guard.
If a person wants to be a Royal Guard, at the age of 13, they apply. If chosen, every summer until they are 30, they are brought to a house to train. To train, they are given a schedule and a piece of paper with many hard exercises. They also learn more about Minaminoo and the Royal Family. They are supposed to follow the schedule. It is like school. When needed, they take their place. All Royal Guards get rifles.
There are 5 branches- The Army, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard, and Air Force. At the age of 30, every commoner has to do military service for 3 years. You can choose which branch you want to go into. The Army is a ground force, Marines are both water and land, the Navy is water, the Coast Guard is the river and bay police, and the Air Force is in the air.
