The Republic of Cambria, more commonly known as Cambria, is a city-state nation planned to be in Europe (most likely Central or Eastern Europe) but currently claims no territory. The Republic of Cambria was founded and is currently lead by President. As of the end of July 2019, the Republic of Cambria currently has 3 citizens.
The Republic of Cambria is a unitary representative democracy under a multi-party directorial republic. The 7 Ministers (elected by the citizens) serve as the executive and legislative branch and rotate through the mostly ceremonial positions of President for 1-year terms. The National Court (mostly ceremonial) (headed by the 4 Supreme Judges) is in charge of the Judicial Branch. The Republic of Cambria follows the Official Cambrian Constitution, which is being written.
The Republic of Cambria has a short history. The Republic of Cambria used to be different Kingdoms that have had many names and many forms of government.
On October 15, 2018, the Kingdom of Galebeth was made by the current leader, President. At this time, the Kingdom was an absolute monarchy. This Kingdom lasted for one day before it was changed to Nemeth.
Nemeth was an absolute monarchy. The Coat of Arms was changed and tax details were introduced (10% income tax, and 6.5% sales tax). The Coat of Arms was then changed to the Coat of Arms of Castile, then the name was changed to Mercia for a day, and then turned back into Nemeth. At this point in time, the Republic of Cambria was beginning to take shape. The Coat of Arms was changed to the one that is used today. On April 6, 2019, Nemeth was changed into a Constitutional Monarchy with 4 new councils. The People's Council of the Legislature, the Royal's Council of the Legislature, the Executive People's Council, and the Executive Royal Council. After all these Kingdoms, the Kingdom of Cambria was made.
Kingdom of Cambria
The Kingdom of Cambria was the country that preceded the Republic of Cambria and succeded Nemeth. The reason for its change to a modern Republic is due to the fact that the President felt that not many citizens wold join and Cambria would not look serious. The Kingdom of Cambria was a medieval country. The government of the Kingdom of Cambria was changed to make way for the Republic of Cambria.
The Official Cambrian Constitution is still constantly being revised by President.
Politics and government
The Republic of Cambria is a Directorial Republic, with the Council of Ministers as the collective head of state, head of government, and a unicameral legislative branch. The Republic of Cambria is also unitary and the people elect the Ministers. Any Cambrian citizen can suggest a law (known as a proposal). The Council of Ministers must have a majority vote and approval of the current President to make a law. If the President does not approve, the proposal does not become a law, except if 2/3 or more members of the Council of Ministers voted for the proposal to become a law. To repeal a law, the Council of Ministers must have a ⅔ vote with approval of the President. To change a law, the Council of Ministers must have a ⅗ vote with approval of the President. All members of the Council of Ministers must be 25 years old, have Cambrian Citizenship, and be legally competent. Every 14 years there are elections for Ministers, and the same person can be in the Council of Ministers for 3 terms.
Law and order
The judiciary matters in Cambria are controlled by the ceremonial National Court. All judges must be at least 33, have Cambrian Citizenship, and be legally competent. The National Court has 4 judges (known as the Supreme Judges). The Supreme Judges are chosen by a vote of the Council of Ministers for 4 year terms, with an unlimited amount of terms. All trials in Cambria must have a unanimous vote on the verdict by all the judges. Currently, the only penalty for a "crime" is that the person charged will be stripped of Citizenship or will recieve a warning (after which if charged with another crime he/she will lose the citizenship). Once the Republic of Cambria gains territory, the National Court will handle small issues within Cambria while more serious cases will be transferred to the countries court where the territory is located. The current crime rate within the Republic of Cambria is 0%. Once a territory is acquired, the Armed Forces of Cambria with act as the military and the police force, but will be mainly ceremonial.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is in charge of Foreign Affairs. The Republic of Cambria recognizes nations when they fulfil the requirements, which currently are:
- The nation must have a defined territory.
- The nation must be a peace-loving nation and must always strive for peace.
- The nation must give the citizens basic rights and allow them to have some sort of say in government.
- The nation must not be fascist, communist, a dictatorship, or oppressive (with exceptions, except for oppressiveness).
- The nation must recognize Cambria as a country.
- The nation must be willing to let Cambrian residents into the nations own territory and vice versa.
The Republic of Cambria currently has diplomatic relations with the Democratic Duchy of Rhovanion.
The Armed Forces of Cambria, also known as the AFOC, are the military and police of the Republic of Cambria. As the Republic of Cambria is not a recognized sovereign nation, the AFOC is currently a ceremonial army. The Cambrian Ministry of Defence is responsible for the AFOC.
The Republic of Cambria has never been involved in any conflict.
