Date: 10 September 2010/XXXI

I. Whereas the long history of our province is shrouded in the mystery imposed by shoddy record-keeping and long periods of dictatorship and apathy,

And whereas the many previous laws passed by the predecessors of this Assembly or the dictatorial equivalent are mostly unknown and lost,

And whereas ignorance of the law is a pretty good excuse in this case, and that's not good,

It is resolved by this Assembly that all statutes, laws, and regulations previously enacted by any representative groups or individuals for the Province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic are hereby repealed and are considered to be null and void.

II. Furthermore, whereas this Assembly wishes such a tabula rasa to be a one-time occurrence,

And whereas we need to record our laws and thus need someone to record them,

It is resolved by this Assembly that there shall exist an office of Grand Specific Undersecretary. The Grand Specific Undersecretary is charged by the Assembly to take such reasonable actions as he or she might deem necessary to preserve and publicize the constitution and laws of the province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic. There are no specific qualifications to be Grand Specific Undersecretary, the term of office is one hundred years. The Grand Specific Undersecretary shall be appointed by majority vote of the Assembly as often as is thought necessary.

III. Furthermore, whereas there are some important items that the people of Maritiimi-Maxhestic wish to be enshrined in law that may no longer be enshrined in law subsequent to the massive de-enshrinement of this act,

It is resolved by this Assembly that the official motto of this province is "Onward! Upward! Forward!"

It is resolved by this Assembly that the official demonym for a resident of Maritiimi-Maxhestic is "Maritiimi-Maxhestian."

It is resolved by this Assembly that the official sandwich for the province is the Monte Cristo sandwich, which consists of cheese and other ingredients placed between two slices of bread, after which the whole is dipped in batter and fried. It is customarily served with a pickle.

It is resolved by this Assembly that the territory of Maritiimi-Maxhestic shall be that area previously referred to as cantons 109 and 153, and that these cantons shall be known as Maritiimi and Port Maxhestic, respectively. Passage stricken by Reunionisation Act of the 6th.

It is resolved that the appropriate form of direct address for the Grand General Secretary and any member of the Provincial Assembly of Maritiimi-Maxhestic shall be Segnor. The less formal abbreviation of S:reu shall also be acceptable. The least formal abbreviation of S:r shall be allowed, but not preferred. If it becomes necessary to use specific titles, then the Grand General Secretary shall be called Grand General Secretary and a member of the Assembly shall be called Assemblyperson.

IV. Furthermore, because renumbering sections is a chore,

It is resolved by this Assembly that the province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic is generally opposed to bad things and supportive of good things.

V. Furthermore, because it is true,

It is resolved by this Assembly that the Province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic is the best province.

VI. Furthermore, because of their great woe and unanimous appeals for rescue, and

As we are the mightiest province of mercy, and must accordingly betake ourselves to come to the aid of any in need, and

Since the lovely Isle of Cézembre cries for succor,

It is resolved by this Assembly that the Isle of Cézembre is considered to be the rightful domain of the most glorious province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic. This fact will never be forgotten, and we shall make every effort to stretch out our hand to our downtrodden allies.

Amendments to the Election Laws for the Province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic
[[{{{original}}}|Read previous versions of this act]]

WHEREAS

our constitution requires that the time and manner of Assembly elections is to be determined by law, and we sure don't have any such laws, and
while custom has guided us in the past, it may be unwise to continue to rely wholly upon it for our provincial electoral governance, and
we wish to create election laws that might stand trial for some cycles, and thereafter be stricken from the statutes and added to the Constitution of our mighty Province, and
clarity of language and care of design are necessary, and
since it appears as though the simplest course is the best and most fair to protect the dignity and democracy of our province,

It is resolved by this Assembly that there shall exist a body of law called the "Election Laws for the Province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic". These election laws shall be the only lawful means by which provincial elections shall be conducted, and obedience to them shall be compulsory. Any modifications to these laws shall specifically and fully explained by the Grand General Secretary to the citizens by those means he deems appropriate. At all times the laws shall be publicly available.

The Election Laws for the Province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic shall consist of the following:

I. The size of the Provincial Assembly of Maritiimi-Maxhestic shall be equal to the number of citizens who voted for a registered political party in the most recent election. This is intended to give each individual voter their share of representation in the Assembly.

II. Registration as a political party is simple, and amounts to giving public notice to Maritiimi-Maxhestians a minimum of ten days before the election. This public notice shall be formally called the Sticla, and must be available on request to any potential voter. The Sticla must indicate who is the head of the party. While it is not required to have information about the political positions and advocacies of the party, this is something that is recommended.

III. Elections shall be held in public, and shall begin at the time of national elections. They will be conducted by whoever is chosen unanimously by the outgoing Provincial Assembly; if no one is so chosen, then the Senator for the province shall be required to conduct the election. Elections shall run for exactly two weeks.

IV. The head of each party shall distribute seats in the Assembly to citizens of the province. Any citizen may be designated to hold any number of duly assigned seats. Seats may not be reassigned unless first voluntarily relinquished by their Assemblyperson, who may relinquish either all or any of their seats as they choose.

WHEREAS

there exists an opportunity to re-unite all those with of Talossan culture back together in the Kingdom, and the glorious province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic, recognized as the greatest of all the provinces, has every desire to bring about such an outcome for the good of the nation and of Maritiimi-Maxhestic, and

WHEREAS

it seems that the best solution is to set aside a section of the national territory for a new province for this influx of citizens, and because they are understandably desirous of having a section of what is currently Maritiimi-Maxhestic within this territory, and because the Organic Law thankfully provides that Maritiimi-Maxhestic itself must consent to any such cession of territory in Org.XVII.5, and

WHEREAS

we also wish to sustain the vital interests of our own provincial citizens, even as we contribute to the advancement of the nation, and so we wish to provide for the future of Maritiimi-Maxhestic,

I. Therefore the Assembly of the glorious Province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic, being duly constituted by the citizens of Maritiimi-Maxhestic as prescribed by the Constitution of Maritiimi-Maxhestic and the Organic Law, hereby amends the third article of the Body of Law Act of the 4th Assembly, deleting entirely the paragraph that currently reads, "It is resolved by this Assembly that the territory of Maritiimi-Maxhestic shall be that area previously referred to as cantons 109 and 153, and that these cantons shall be known as Maritiimi and Port Maxhestic, respectively."

II. Furthermore, the people of Maritiimi-Maxhestic hereby consent to action by the Ziu for the alteration of our provincial borders with respect to any of the following possible alterations: The addition of any amount of territory from another province to Maritiimi-Maxhestic. The Province of Maritiimi-Maxhestic suggests that this addition consist of Canton 143 of Maricopa, but should other territories up to and including the rest of the North American continent be further granted to Maritiimi-Maxhestic, this would also be acceptable. The cession, of the area that is described on the United States of America's 2010 census as census area 1874, to another territory or province. Should the Ziu decide to reassign a smaller amount of territory from within this area than the specified amount, that shall also be acceptable.

This public notice shall be formally called the Sticla, and must be available on request to any potential voter. The Sticla must indicate who is the head of the party. The head of the party or their selected representative, as specified in the Sticla, is the only person who can assign seats won by their party in the election. While it is not required to have information about the political positions of the party, this is something that is recommended.

This is intended to give each Maritiimi-Maxhestian the opportunity to have their share of representation in the Assembly.

II. Responding to the "Maritiimi-Maxhestic Assembly Call' is simple, and amounts to giving public notice to Maritiimi-Maxhestians during the national election. To faciliate this process, the Grand Specific Undersecretary will post a notice of this requirement, no earlier than ten days before, and no later than, the national 'Balloting Day'. This public notice shall be formally called the 'Maritiimi-Maxhestic Assembly Call' and must be made available on request to any Maritiimi-Maxhestian who requests it. The 'Maritiimi-Maxhestic Assembly Call' is updated each time a Maritiimi-Maxhestians answers the call. The "Maritiimi-Maxhestic Assembly Call' must indicate each Maritiimi-Maxhestian who wishes to accept the 'Maritiimi-Maxhestic Assembly Call', who they are appointing their seat to if they are not taking it themselves, and any information about their political positions in Maritiimi-Maxhestic.

III. The 'Maritiimi-Maxhestic Assembly Call' will be closed at the same time as national elections on 'Election Deadline'. Individuals, either themselves or delegated, listed on the 'Maritiimi-Maxhestic Assembly Call' shall be issued their seats in the Assembly.

WHEREAS

There seems to be some doubt as to whether or not Maritiimi-Maxhestic can claim ownership of the Historic Water Tower, and

WHEREAS We conducted a completely legitimate deal with Vuode concerning this, and WHEREAS That deal gives us ownership of the Water Tower, and WHEREAS Vuode will shortly become part of Maritiimi-Maxhestic anyway, and WHEREAS It is unlikely that Vuodeans could suitably appreciate the Water Tower even if they did have a claim to it

THEREFORE Maritiimi-Maxhestic hereby reaffirms it's rightful claim to the Historic Water Tower, while also recognizing Vuode's claim to the water contained within the Tower.

Voting Procedure Act

WHEREAS there is currently no official procedure for passing bills, and

WHEREAS this situation could be easily exploited if we are not careful, and

WHEREAS to demonstrate my point, I could propose this bill to the Assembly and then close the voting one minute afterwards, and I would not have broken any laws


THEREFORE the following procedure shall be used by this assembly to pass bills;

Any member of the Assembly of Maritiimi-Maxhestic may put a bill up to a vote of the Assembly by publicly providing the text of the bill accompanied by a notice that voting on the bill has begun. Voting on a bill will last for two weeks after the notice is given, and only those votes which have been cast during that period will be counted.
