GOVERNMENT: Upper and Lower Councils
Empress Aiyana Moonshyne
Upper Council Dark Angel
Lower Council Falina Rose Dahn Acholides

The Empress is the Founder and may not be demoted or removed by the council, unless treason is comitted. In the case of the Empress renouncing her position then the Council may vote in favor of a new ruler. The Ruler has many duties overseeing everything as a whole and may select anyone of her choosing to help with any task. The only exception is the Upper Council. All appointed persons by the Empress must see her first before doing anything that is questionable. (such as mailing lists, making missives and sending them to folks) All reports are to be sent to her and viewed for accuracy. She has the power to Override both Councils, having the final say so in any matter but if she breaks the law she can be tried for Treason and stripped of command or if she renounces her position as ruler

The Upper Council - They are to elect a leader if the Founder resigns, and if a law is not passed in the Lower Council they can vote on it to try and get it passed. The members of the High Council also are in charge of watching the guilds in the Empire. They are in charge of maintaining the government jobs, such as the Justice Council, but can hire people to run those. If a problem occurs then the member of the Council, not the hired help, gets blamed unless proven it was on purpose to get the councilman/woman in trouble. This council will be larger or smaller than the size of the lower, due to the fact the leaders of guilds or Kingdoms, including high ranking officers if they show they are active enough.

The Lower Council - The basic law making group. They can suggest their own and take ones from other groups or guilds. They must talk about the law and see how it will effect everyone. Only 1/3 of the members need to be present when discussing a law and 2/3 MUST be there when they vote. A law is passed if a majority of the Council votes for it to. If it doesn't pass it is stored. It can either be taken up by the Upper Council or revoted on in 30 days. A recap of the law must be given before voted on again.

Every 3 months voting and re-election will take place. There can only be 24 members of the Lower council.
If no one on the council exists or is not present..the matter will be handled by the Empress and her advisors.
