With inspiration from former great outposts on smp9,the Eastern Republic is the culmination of multiple months work,to create the ultimate political experiment on Empire Minecraft.A number of us have been working for the past few months to perfect a system that we believe will support our political experiment. We believe that we've learnt from the lessons of past experiments and have crafted a constitution and political system beforehand.The Eastern Republic is a federation, united under one name and governed through representation of all of our citizens. Our capital and first state are located in the east wild region of smp9, however we are glad to accommodate states from anywhere on EMC.Anyone may claim citizenship to the Eastern Republic and they will be welcomed with open arms.The citizens of the Eastern Republic are represented through the National Assembly, our supreme legislative body. The affairs of our nation are governed by the First Minister, with the confidence of the majority of the National Assembly. Our President is our uniting figure and keeps a watchful eye over the proceedings of the government and the rest of the nation. Any citizen of the Eastern Republic may participate in government at any level.Our constitution is complete and publicly available to read here. It is a bit of a long read, but it outlines exactly how our great experiment shall operate. The following posts shall explain in greater detail how this will work.We hope that you are interested and if you want to join, just post here!
