Signed by His Imperial Majesty, John VII of the House of Cascadia, Holy Orenian Emperor, on the 10th of Godfrey’s Triumph, 1725.

 

This shall be adhered to as the new succession system of the Empire for evermore to come, no Emperor shall ever ascend to the throne of the Empire through any other means. 

 

SECTION I: ELECTION

  1. The position of Emperor shall be decided by a grand election involving and encompassing the entire populace of the Empire. 

  2. Each vote of the populace should be counted as a singular vote.

  3. Each vote of a vassal should be counted as worth double of a vote.

 

SECTION II: PRE-REQUISITES OF VOTERS

  1. To preface this, any voter not deemed eligible by the Regency Council may be discarded at the august body’s discretion.

  2. A member of the populace must own residence within the encompassed lands of the Empire for a minimum of one saints month before the election in order to be eligible to vote.

  3. A vassal of the Empire must have his title, and be landed for three saints month before being eligible to cast their vote - which is worth double of a vote. 

  4. Any member of the Empire may have their ability to vote stripped from them by the Regency Council during the process for corruption and attempt to pervert the electoral process, criminal dealings or any other deemed suitable reason.

 

SECTION III: PROCESS OF THE ELECTION 

  1. Upon the passing of a monarch through death or abdication, the Empire shall ascend into a regency with one member chosen to lead the regency council - this leader should oversee the election process for a new Emperor.

  2. Before any vote is commenced, the infrastructure of the Empire must be in a suitable position to conduct such an affair, and a list of all eligible vassal voters must be published for all to view.

  3. If all is prepared, then an election period shall commence, this will commence with a large empire-wide gathering at the palace of the regency council’s choosing, where initial speeches and candidates shall be displayed to the populace. Once this is concluded, voting shall start immediately.

  4. The election period shall last for a period of one Saint’s Week, in which it shall conclude in a similarly styled meeting as to how the period began - the announced Emperor will be crowned on this day.

 

SECTION IV: PRE-REQUISITES OF CANDIDATES

  1. Any vassal who is eligible to vote may cast themselves forward as a candidate during the election. 

  2. A candidate must make himself known to the populace and the Regency Council before, or during, the election period - and not after.

  3. A candidate must be a minimum of 16 years of age, but may be of any gender.

  4. The Emperor cannot be a King, and any Kingly candidate who is interested in putting forth their candidacy must first resign their Kingdom and titles before being considered and entered into the election.

 

SECTION V: RIGHTS OF AN EMPEROR

  1. The Emperor is the supreme authority of Oren and shall remain as Emperor until their eventual passing, having full power until then. Their word shall be law, total and absolute.

  2. The Emperor will have no authority however, to alter succession. If an attempt is made to alter the current succession, then they shall be deemed as an unfit and incompetent person, removed from their throne. However, with the backing of subordinate Kings, and their Privy Council, they may alter sections of the succession - but must keep it as close to its original intention.

  3. The Emperor shall be seated in his own Palace, though may use other Palaces of his subordinate Kingdoms to his leisure.

  4. The Emperor shall be addressed as “His Imperial Majesty”

  5. The Emperor's direct family shall be named as Imperial Princes and Princesses, and his House the ruling Imperial House, for the duration of his reign but no longer.
