This is the Ptyxurian Constitution:
have made this country a temporary monarchy. But that must change. We have made this document to ensure
that all of the people; Residents, Voters, Non-Voters, Men Women, and Children alike have equal rights and abilities; to allow
liberty to be the driving asset of a nation; and to give power to the people. Therefore we make this document keeping
in mind that the People and only the People can change it for their welfare.
Similar to far too few other countries
and regions, Ptyxur has its center of power with the people. To vote you must be at least ten years of age and pass
a test, to which you will retake every five years; to show that you know what and why you're voting. Also, you must
be a citizen. If you were born there, than you are automatically a citizen unless you're citizenship is revoked, which
is the consequence of some of the worst crimes. To become a citizen, you must apply and take a test. You must
also have a job and speak English.
The next highest level of government from the individual
is a Clantel. They are made up of one-hundred voters. They are where the laws are made up. Ordinary
citizens, voters or not, come and make them up. Each Clantel votes in two representatives, or the co- representatives,
which go on to the House of Representatives. They take with them, as close as possible to reality, the opinions of the
people in the Clantel. That includes laws, which must get at least seventy percent of the people in the Clantel that
came up with it who want it to go on, and amendments who need seventy percent of the vote also. The Co-Representatives
can be re- or de-elected at any meeting of the Clantel, which should be once a month.
two months, the Co-Representatives for each Clantel will meet as the House of Representatives. The House of Representatives will represent fifty Clantel. Both Co-Representatives from each Clantel go there. Each one
represents five thousand people. And there are as many as need be. Each House of Representatives has a Chairman that organizes the meetings.
He is not one of the Representatives and he gets voted for a four year term by the People. He has to win by at least five percent of the vote. They also
decide to declare war. In all there will be one hundred one people at the meetings
of the House of Representatives.
next level up from there is the Senate. It is composed of twenty people. They serve five year terms. Their job
is to decide when two laws are in conflict. When they do, they decide which of
the two or three is a more fair and just law. They than put that law up for re-vote
in both Houses of Representatives that are in conflict. If neither House changes,
or the positions are reversed, than the courts decide which of the two original laws is better and enacts it in both the areas
of jurisdiction. They also decide when a law no longer applies to certain circumstances
and should be discarded.
is also a president. He or she is in charge of making sure that no other system is corrupt.
He watches, every once in a while, the procedures in a court, a Clantel, the Senate, or the House of Representatives. He is also in charge of relations with other countries or regions. Finally he controls the army and the emergency services. This includes the Police, Fire department, and
the Hospitals and medical care.
process starts with the jurors. They are picked from a Clantel as uninvolved
as possible to the case being tried. There are from five jurors as there would
be for a small case like Trespassing or theft, to fifteen for cases like murder. The
verdict has to be unanimous except for one juror. The process in the courts is
this: The prosecuting attorney makes one
point which the defense has a rebuttal. Than the defense makes a point. This
goes on until the trial has either gone on for twenty hours elapsed time or the defense has run out of points. Than they will make their closing statements, prosecution first, than the defense. The jurors will then
decide. It will be done similarly for laws, with the for as the defense and the against as the prosecution. There are no lawsuits. Those types of things are settled by the Clantels of both parties.
are also rights of everyone at Ptyxur. These include Free Speech, Free Religion,
Freedom of the Press, Freedom of enjoyment, Freedom to have an opinion, Freedom
to keep your life no matter what your crime, and Freedom of expression. We
believe that these systems and rights should allow liberty to be common, and the
people free and happy.
