The United Kingdoms of Mersch

THE UNITED KINGDOMS OF MERSCH

Four old Kingdoms sit around the lake of Mersch. In the 15th Century King Manfred Krückel managed to get the four Kingdoms to swear on oath of loyalty to him and was named High King. Since then there has been a formation of a new political system where each of the four Kingdoms has a dynastic family, the head of which is called the   Fürst.

The leader of the nation is the eldest child of the previous High King (Before 1950 the law stated it had to be a male however since then the law simply says eldest child). Should they have no child the title passes to one of the other Fürst as determined by a vote of the people from the Kingdom the deceased High King is from. This means that a new dynasty begins.

GOVERNMENT STRUCTURE



Mersch is a monarchy where the reigning monarch has a significant amount of power. No law can exist without the monarch having a role. In addition there is a Council of Four and the Combined Council. The Council of Four is made up of 40 individuals appointed by the leader of each of the four Kingdoms that make up Mersch. The Combined Council is slected by citizens every four years. There is also a cabinet of Ministers who oversee certain areas of government on behalf of the monarch.  There are three routes to laws being created.

Route 1 - The Monarch presents legislation to the Council of the Four. As long as the Council give the legislation approval it can become law.

Route 2 - The Council of the Four may present legislation to the Combined Council. Assuming this gets the majority of the vote it is given to the monarch who may accept or reject it.

Route 3 - Any member of the Combined Council may present a piece of legislation. The relevant Minister is then responsible for determining whether it should be debated in Council. If it passes the Combined Council it goes to the Council of the Four and then finally the monarch.

The Four different Kingdoms are controlled by a Fürst who is responsible for maintaining local infrestructure, setting educational policy and investing funding provided by central government.

THE COUNCIL OF THE FOUR


Each Fürst appoints ten members of the Council. Once someone has been appointed they may only be replaced in three circumstances, death, resignation or criminal conviction.

THE COMBINED COUNCIL

Each of the Four Kingdoms elects 50 representatives every four years. This is done by areas known as Communes each electing a representative. Any citizen of Mersch who has lived in a Commune for five years may stand for election. To be able to vote you must be a citizen of Mersch and over the age of 18.
