The Consuls of Genoa, Venice and Napoli have come forward with a proposal to legalise the Consulate as the de facto rulers of the Mediterranean, while our king would still maintain the highest authority, matters of commerce and maritime law would fall under the complete control of the Consuls.

The Archduchy of Austria was a major principality of the Holy Roman Empire and the nucleus of the Habsburg Monarchy. With its capital at Vienna, the archduchy was centered at the Empire's southeastern periphery. The Archduchy developed out of the Bavarian Margraviate of Austria, elevated to the Duchy of Austria according to the 1156 Privilegium Minus by Emperor Frederick Barbarossa. The House of Habsburg came to the Austrian throne in Vienna in 1282 and in 1453 Emperor Frederick III, also Austrian ruler, officially adopted the archducal title. From the 15th century onwards, all Holy Roman Emperors but one were Austrian archdukes and with the acquisition of the Bohemian and Hungarian crown lands in 1526, the Habsburg "hereditary lands" became the centre of a major European power.

But it was in 1130 with the convening of the Curiae generales by Roger II in Palermo, in the Palazzo dei Normanni for the proclamation of the King of Sicily that we can speak of the first parliament in the modern sense.

Abolish Bastard Feudalism icon
bastard feudalism centred not the financial aspect (the sums involved were mostly negligible) but on the concept of service in exchange for good favour. In a society governed on a personal basis, service to a lord was the best way to obtain favour in the form of offices, grants, etc. Lords would retain administrators and lawyers, as well as recruiting local gentry into their affinities. By offering money instead of land, lords could afford to retain more followers. In return for becoming retainers, the gentry would expect to rely on their lord's influence in local and national politics. This practice was known as "maintenance". The retainer might wear his lord's livery badge or the grander form, a livery collar, which could be very useful in a courtroom. Under a weak king, such as Henry VI , the rivalries of magnates might spill over from the courtroom to armed confrontations, thereby perverting justice.

Administrative penetration has been the greatest obstacle for any empire in this region. It is in the interest of the state to encourage economic productivity and we must at all times keep this in mind, while also keeping a constant watch on the regional economy. Solving this problem will require great resources and commitment, as there is no easy way to rule as many subjects as we aim to.\nLet us create an administration that conducts regular cadastral surveys of land, crops grown, land revenue, and local economy. Moreover we must demand cash payments of all our subjects at all times and offer lighter taxes when needed to encourage local economy.

Equality Principle icon
Although our state holds Egalité as one of its core values, it is clear that we have completely failed in our goal to treat all our people with fairness and equality. The core principle of our nation must be to eliminate the barriers of gender, culture, and social class and ensure that it is known that all people are created equal and a good start to that would be to ensure that religion remains a private matter and does not dictate one’s rights within the state.

It also protected the authority of the princely families, the knights and some of the cities to determine what religious uniformity meant in their territories.

In May 1763, Bertin issued a decree permitting the tax-free circulation of grain without taxes. In August 1764, Bertin permitted the export of grain from twenty-seven French ports, later expanded to thirty-six. At the same time he established a large zone around Paris, where grain was reserved exclusively for feeding the Parisians, and established a cap on the grain price, which, if it was passed, would cause the exports to cease. The policy of freeing grain prices was effective in good years, and resulted in increased trade and lower prices.

The increased expenditures of the elector for equipment and preservation of the army supply or also for the own yard state could not be contested any more by the own dominions. The solution was to levy new tax types. For this, however, it also required the consent of the stands. The gathering of the estates in 1438, organized under Frederick II, is considered the first state parliament of Saxony . Saxony's estates were granted the right to join forces in tax matters without convocation by the ruler. As a result, more and more Landtage took place, thus forming the Wettin sovereign state.

The Nobility is dominating our court, their power and number are great, which has proven a double edged sword on their side.

The Junkers, lower nobility from the empire, have long tried to demand representation on a national scale. These captains and sargeants from the imperial army have served well, and have heavily benefitted from the past century of increasing power, forming unions and threatening members of the higher nobility to stop acess to the courts. By allowing them a formal place among our court, we can secure their loyalty and reap the benefits of their military traditions and experience.

In 1380, the Hongwu Emperor abolished the old Secretariat system, to keep the six ministries from being controlled by only two chancellors. To solve this bureaucratic void in turn, the late Emperor recruited the Hanlin Academy and created the Grand Secretariat. With the duty of managing the ministries in different hands, who all responded to the Secretariat (and in turn spoke to the Emperor), we can effectively wield our government decisions with ease, at the cost of averting our eyes from some unsavory practices.

The Constitution of 3 May 1791, or Governance Act, was a constitution adopted by the Great Sejm for the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, a dual monarchy comprising the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The Constitution was designed to correct the Commonwealth's political flaws and had been preceded by a period of agitation for—and gradual introduction of—reforms, beginning with the Convocation Sejm of 1764 and the consequent election that year of Stanisław August Poniatowski as the Commonwealth's king.The Constitution sought to implement a more effective constitutional monarchy, introduced political equality between townspeople and nobility, and placed the peasants under the protection of the government, mitigating the worst abuses of serfdom. It banned pernicious parliamentary institutions such as the liberum veto, which had put the Sejm at the mercy of any single deputy, who could veto and thus undo all the legislation that had been adopted by that Sejm.
