RZ2 - The Birds of a Feather Flock Together Act

WHEREAS Talossa is more fun, real, and active when Talossans can interact offline, and

WHEREAS This is especially true for provinces, since not much happens on provincial Witt boards, and

WHEREAS This is generally why it is a good idea to have geographically contiguous catchment areas, and

WHEREAS Putting people in the same province physically closer together is not the only way to make them more likely to have offline interactions, and

WHEREAS This is because some people have personal connections that predate their Talossanity, and

WHEREAS It then makes sense to put those people in the same province


THEREFORE Lex.E.7.2.1, which currently reads:

7.1.2. Citizens living outside the boundaries of Talossa shall be assigned to a province corresponding to a geographic zone. The entire globe shall be divided into eight geographic zones so that anyone living anywhere outside Talossa is automatically assigned to the corresponding Talossan province.


shall be amended to read:

7.1.2. Citizens living outside the boundaries of Talossa shall be assigned to a province corresponding to a geographic zone. The entire globe shall be divided into eight geographic zones so that anyone living anywhere outside Talossa is automatically assigned to the corresponding Talossan province, subject to E.7.1.2.1

7.1.2.1 At any time before a Grant of Citizenship is issued to an applicant, a current Talossan citizen who is an acquaintance of the applicant may petition the Secretary of State to assign the applicant to his province when the Grant is issued. If the Secretary of State determines to his satisfaction that the applicant and the petitioner are acquaintances, he shall accept the petition. If the Secretary of State denies the petition, he must issue a statement explaining his reasoning, and this decision may be challenged in Cort by the petitioner.

7.1.2.1.1 In the case that multiple petitions are issued by petitioners from different provinces, the Secretary of State may only accept the petition of the applicant's choosing.

7.1.2.1.2 The Secretary of State shall not accept any such petition unless and until he has confirmed that the applicant would like to be assigned to the petitioner's province. An applicant's desire to be assigned to a province based on catchment area overrides any and all such petitions.
