Constitutional Law of the Magical Democracy​

Article I.

The Magical Democracy was founded by DrThestral on February 17, 2022. It was founded after a big magical tree at the edge of the forest just outside the UAF territory started to sparkle and bring its magic into the world of the Waffles SMP. From there it started to spread and it made its way up to a small cabin where DrThestral lived and turned it into an enchanted place full of magic and fantasy. In return, DrThestral made a community with people who swore to help each other and where everyone is equal. Together they created homes across the land and made little places to worship this magical tree.

Purpose

The nation was founded with the idea of people helping each other when needed and creating beautiful things with groups of people from all over the world. If necessary, the members of the Magical Democracy will combine their strengths and face any danger headed their or any of their allies way.

Article III.

Membership

Being a member of the Magical Democracy has no restrictions on locations where you can set up camp or build your base, neither has it restrictions on how this base should look. There are also no taxes in the Magical Democracy. Membership of this nation does mean however that when someone from the country or any of the allied countries is in need, you won’t hesitate to help them out without expecting to be rewarded for it. Also, when the Magical Democracy is at war with another country, you may be called upon to help. This can be either through fighting in the war itself, or by donating equipment.

Article IV.

Organization

Section I. Structure

The government of the Magical Democracy exists out of two roles.
The first role is called the Droco Cantor. The Droco Cantor is the leader of the nation and the one who represents the Magical Democracy on the WSMP Council. The Droco Cantor is allowed to request help from a council of ministers, who may help them with decision making and similar matters. These meetings are public and happen in so called Magical Council Gatherings.
The second role is called a Minister of the Magical Democracy. There can be any number of ministers. There is no required minimum or maximum of ministers the Magical Council needs to function. The ministers are there to help the Droco Cantor with their decision making or brainstorming when the Droco Cantor requests their help. They do this via the Magical Council Gatherings, which is open for the people to see. The Droco Cantor is allowed to move ministers in and out of the council however they please, although the citizens of the Magical Democracy are still free to deny a request by the Droco Cantor to be made a minister as well as to make the request themselves. The denial or approval of someone being made minister can not be overruled through a voting request by the citizens. The removal of a minister from the Magical Council can be overruled through a voting request by the citizens, although this request may be denied automatically if the minister in question left the nation, was banned from the server, or decided to leave themselves. Only citizens of the Magical Democracy are allowed to become ministers.

Section III. Voting Requests

The Magical Democracy is a democracy. This means that civilians can have an influence on what happens within the country. This happens through voting requests. With every major decision the Droco Cantor makes, the citizens are allowed to request a vote if they heavily disagree with the matter. This must be done within 24 hours of the decision being made public and there can only be one voting request per mayor decision. The request must have a solid basis, be related to one of the four motions mentioned in Section IV, and be about the decision that was made. The request may be denied if the voting is about the denial or acceptance of a new minister or if the matter the decision is about cannot wait for a vote. If the request is accepted, then the citizens of the Magical Democracy get 72 hours to cast their vote. They will also get all the information they need to cast an honest vote. If over 50% of the votes cast are in favor of the decision, then the Droco Cantor is legally allowed to continue with the decision. If 50% or less of the votes are in favor, the Droco Cantor is obligated to revert the decision and either rework it or scrap the idea entirely. Only citizens of the Magical Democracy are allowed to request and cast a vote and only citizens who have been online on the WSMP within the last 30 days are allowed to request and cast a vote.

Section IV. Motions

When a vote is requested, the motion that fits the request best should be specified. If 50% or more of the votes are against the decision, that motion will automatically be accepted. There are four motions the citizens are allowed to choose from.
The Motion of Doubt can be requested within 24 hours after the Droco Cantor made a new decision public. If this motion gets accepted, the decision gets reverted and the Droco Cantor will have to alter certain things to it or scrap it entirely.
The Motion of Council can be requested within 24 hours after the Droco Cantor made a new decision public where the Magical Council was not involved. If this motion gets accepted, the decision gets reverted and the Droco Cantor must either include their ministers when reworking it or scrap it entirely.
The Motion of Disbelief can be requested within 24 hours after the Droco Cantor makes a new decision public where the Magical Council is involved. If this motion gets accepted, the decision gets reverted and the Droco Cantor and their ministers will have to alter certain things or scrap it entirely. The motion warns that if the next decision is also not to the people’s liking, the next request can be a Motion of Distrust.
The Motion of Distrust can be requested within 24 hours after the Droco Cantor made the rework of a decision which got a Motion of Disbelieve public where the Magical Council was involved in the rework as well. If this motion gets accepted, the decision gets reverted and all the ministers on the Magical Council will be removed and a whole new set of ministers will be appointed. After that, the Droco Cantor and their new ministers will have to alter certain things to the decision again or scrap it entirely. This motion can only follow a Motion of Disbelief for the same decision and if the ministers were heavily involved with both decisions.

Article V.

Quorum

For voting to be valid, at least sixty percent of the nation’s population who have been online on the WSMP within the past ten days must have voted. If this quorum hasn’t been reached, the voting will be declared invalid, and a new voting period will be set up. Each voting request can have up to two voting periods before automatically being denied for being undecided.
