From the Office of the Emperor


It has come to my attention that a couple of things needed to be amended in the Constitution, namely the Standard of Date and an amendment process for changing the Constitution in the future.

All citizens will now need top exercise greater responsibility in the Empire, as amendments will require each citizen to vote on them. "Inactive" or hard-to-reach citizens could bog down the system and make this micronation very hard to govern, so I ask you to each make a commitment to actively participating in the Empire.

I like the map and I'm glad we get to vote. The months being in a different language is confusing. Are there English translations?

The days of the week are the translation of the Darian days into Quenyan Elvish. For example, Anar Carnil means Sol Martis, Day of Mars.
