  4. An address to Lazarus

    Greetings, fellow Lazarenes. I would like to make a quick address to all members of Lazarus on the occasion of these momentous changes that have just been made to the Constitution by our High Sepulchre. Firstly, however, I would like to review the past several months briefly as it has been a good start to the year for us! Between the approval of our treaties with Balder and The West Pacific, we have been rolling right along and expanding our international reach. We have also been steadily increasing our post count on the forum and the number of people who are actively engaging us both gameside and on the forums. I am now at over 250 nations endorsing Funkadelia, which is nearing a peacetime record that was set last July. Some of our more committed members, such as Treadwellia have kept the polls rolling and the RMB discussion lively in Lazarus. In the last week alone, we have had eight nations apply for citizenship in the region, which bodes well for our activity in future. This recent increase in citizenship coincides opportunely with these recent changes to the constitution, which is the main focus of this address today. In case not everyone had been following the affairs of the High Sepulchre all too closely, there have been some serious changes made to the constitution as of late. I can't go over every matter line by line in this post alone, so for more information, please go ahead and read the Constitution for yourself. I will highlight however, some of the more important changes that have been made. Prime among these is the creation of the Directorate. From this moment on, Lazarus will retain the King as the Head of State and supreme executive, but we will also have an elected Head of Government that is elected by the Assembly. The elected Head of Government, the Viceroy, will head the Directorate, which consists of Governors of the various Districts. These districts are almost identical in function to the Cathedrals of the Undead Dominion, and the Governors serve the same role as the Necromancers of old. This new manner of government will retain our considerable stability when it comes to gameside affairs, but will also allow for an active and dynamic internal forum government scene that we have been needing as of late. In addition, we have also opened up our legislature. Now, any citizen who commits themselves for a district and actively contributes to it for two weeks (as well as during their time serving as a legislator) will become a full voting member of the Assembly, Lazarus' legislature. The Speaker of the Assembly will also be elected on a regular basis. In regards to Districts, they serve as the Cathedrals that we used to have, as I mentioned before. However, now, all citizens wishing to become a legislator must now commit themselves to one when they become a citizen. By doing so, they declare "this is the realm of regional affairs that I'm most interested in, and will contribute to it on a regular basis." This marks a syncretism of various forms of government we have employed in the past, and we hope that this will energize everyone a little bit more, now that we have opened up several new avenues for contribution and advancement in the region. In the immediate term, I need to address some issues with filling the several vacancies in the government. As King, I still wield executive control, and I will be taking charge of all affairs for the time being, until we can fill the vacancies. In the meantime, I hereby reaffirm Aleister's authority to accept citizenship applications as imbued to me by the Constitution. The first thing we will do in terms of our Assembly is electing a Speaker. Once roughly half of our current citizens have joined the Assembly, I will conduct a Speaker election using a similar format to our High Sepulchre elections so that we can get things rolling from the start. Once the Speaker is elected, the Speaker will conduct an election under the same format to elect the Viceroy. Once we have a fully functioning government, we can continue operating as normal. Thank you all for your support and cooperation, and I am confident that we are about to begin a new era in Lazarus history.
