Looking for Law:El Lexhatx?

El Lexhatx (pronounced [lɛˈd͡ʒaʒ] ( )) is the legal code of the Kingdom of Talossa, compiled from all of the acts of the Ziu and Prime Dictates. It was passed in February of 2013/XXXIV by the 46th Cosa. At its passage, it codified 151 prior laws and specifically repealed another 111 acts of questionable effect. El Lexhatx also included a blanket repeal of all prior law, to finally put an end to the worries about missing records from past Cosas. "Lexhatx" is a Talossan word, meaning an "ongoing ordering of the law."

After a prefatory declaration of principles, el Lexhatx is divided into ten sections, sorting out all the current law into different categories. These categories are general crime (detailing the criminal code, acceptable punishments, and broad principles); elections (governing political parties and how the Chancery conducts elections); offices of the royal household (including the Chancery, the Scribery, the Civil Service, and the Bar); the government (describing the duties of all the bureaus and sub-bureaus of the Talossan government); immigration (who is allowed to enter the country, and the appropriate procedure); culture (such as holidays, official symbols, and the like); justice (how the Cort Pü Inalt and the Magistracy work); legislation (detailing how it is submitted and passed in the Ziu); the military (in all of its fractal complexity and silliness); and the Lexhatx itself (how it should be maintained and amended).
