Government of Preore

The Government of the nation of Preore is a Parliamentary Republic with a bicameral legislature headed by a Prime Minister, this is split into the lower Chamber of Commons and the upper Chamber of Thegns. The Supreme Court of the Republic carries out independent judicial functions on behalf of the state.

Elections are held every 4 years, the nation uses a first-pass-the-post system to elect Members of Parliament. After which Parliament will convene in a Moot to appoint the Prime Minister based on who's party achieves a majority vote, or is able to form an appropriately sized coalition government.

Current Government
(Commons)
Chamber of Thegns

The Chamber of Thegns, also known as the House of Thanes, is the upper house of the Parliament of Preore. Membership is determined by appointments by the Executive as the tradition of nobility and aristocracy was abandoned and all remaining titles were abolished. The Chamber of Thegns holds the government to account by scrutinising bills, alongside the Common Chamber. Thengs regularly review and amend bills before they reach Executive Assent, seeking agreement with the Chamber of Commons on the final text. While it is unable to prevent bills passing into law, except in certain limited circumstances, it can delay bills and force the Commons to reconsider their decisions. In this capacity, the House of Thengs acts as a check on the more powerful Chamber of Commons that is independent of the electoral process. While Thengs may also take on roles as government ministers, high-ranking officials such as cabinet ministers are usually drawn from the Commons. The Chamber of Thegns does not control the term of the prime minister or of the government. Only the lower house may force the prime minister to resign or call elections.

Chamber of Commons

The Chamber of Commons is the lower house of the Parliament of the Preore. The Chamber of Commons is an elected body consisting of 450 members. MPs are elected to represent constituencies by the first-past-the-post system and hold their seats until Parliament is dissolved at the end of every 4 year term. This house is responsible for electing a new government to power and granting legitimacy to the Prime Minister whilst simultaneously formally scrutinizing the Government through regular weekly committees arranged in order to ensure that the actions of the Executive is accountable to the elected body. It is also the primary body through which bills are introduced, debated and eventually passed once the Thengs have approved it.

Supreme Court of the Republic:

The Supreme Court of the Republic (SCR) is the final court of appeal in Preore for all civil cases, it hears cases of the greatest public or constitutional importance affecting the whole population as well as any case brought that involve a point of Parliamentary Law and Constitutional matters. The Court has seven High Reeves which are appointed for life by an act of Parliament when the previous holder of the post retires or dies.

The Executive Council

The executive council is the government body elected by Parliament and headed by the Prime Minister, it is a cabinet of ministers directly appointed to office by the Prime Minister upon election. Cabinet Ministers do not have term limits, but they must be re-appointed to office when a Prime Minister is elected or re-elected. They can be removed and appointed at will by the Prime Minister, but this often requires justification to both the Prime Minister's party from which the cabinet ministers are selected and potentially the Chamber of Commons.

Economy

The economy of the Preorian Republic is a highly developed social market and market-orientated economy. It is a highly globalized economy and a major exporter of heavy goods lead by Heavy Manufacturing such as Shipbuilding, Aerospace Manufacture and other industrial goods. Other important and leading sectors within the economy are the Pharmaceutical, Mining, Financial, Technology, Service and Fisheries sectors.

Government involvement in the economy is primarily exercised by the Treasury, headed by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. In recent years, the Preorian economy has been managed in accordance with principles of market liberalisation and low taxation and regulation. Taxation in the Republic may involve payments to at least two different levels of government: local government and central government. Local government is financed by grants from central government funds, business rates, council tax, and, increasingly, fees and charges. Central government revenues are mainly from income tax, national insurance contributions, value added tax, corporation tax and fuel duty. Interest Rates and Borrowing on the other hand is the primary role of the Republic Central Bank.

Welfare Insurance

Welfare Insurance is a fundamental component of the Republic Welfare State, payment of WI contributions establishes entitlement to certain state benefits for individuals and their families such as unemployment benefits, sick pay, the state pension and contributing to the Republic Health Service.

Currently, individuals pay contributions from the age of 16 years, until the age they become eligible for the State pension. Those who are non-earners or earn under the minimum tax threshold are exempt from paying WI. Weekly income and some lump-sum benefits are provided for participants upon death, retirement, unemployment, maternity and disability.

In the Republic there is a strong emphasis on providing a strong social safety net, this is an issue backed across all the major parties in government.

Public Services

ServiceState
The Republic Health ServiceAll citizens within the Republic are entitled to free access to RHS services, including provision of a GP and Dental Care.
EducationAll primary and secondary education is free of charge in the Republic, with further education covered by the National Further Education Fund. Which entitles each student to 5 years of Tuition payments.
Public TransportThe National Rail Service has been nationalized and subsidizes rail fares.
The Public Transport Office also provides National Access Cards to all under 18's, over 65's and those with qualifying disabilities, entitling them to free access to Bus and Rail services.
State PensionBased on Welfare Insurance contributions, all citizens have a pension available at the age of 65 with a basic minimum established for those who have no history of WI contributions.
Universal Basic IncomeThe Government is trialing a UBI scheme among those who's incomes are underneath 14,000 SVR. UBI payments amount to 500 SVR per month paid directly to recipients. This is provided under the recently passed Social Care Act to ensure those on the lowest class of income can make ends meet.
Public Housing The Fair Access to Housing Act establishes that in any housing development, 20% of homes are to be sold to the local council to ensure that social housing is available at a fair rate.
BenefitsFor those considered to be in poverty, the state makes available a range of benefits from Unemployment, Child Support to Housing benefits and training benefits.



Energy Sector

Energy in the Republic came mostly from fossil fuels in 2021. Successive governments have outlined numerous commitments to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. One such announcement was the Low Carbon Transition Plan launched by the Pembroke Government in July 2009, which aimed to generate 60% electricity from renewable sources, and 40% from low carbon content fuels by 2020. Largely this scheme has been successful in raising the total domestic energy production being derived from a series of Nuclear Power facilities to 30% of the needs of the national grid and 15% coming from other renewables.

The Republic is also in a unique position to generate significant energy from Wind and Hydroelectric power. Owing to the Geography of the country, high offshore winds between the Island and Mainland portions of the nation make it an ideal area to set up Offshore wind farms, whilst the fast passing currants create the ideal environment for Hydroelectric plants. Government energy policy aims to play a key role in limiting greenhouse gas emissions, whilst meeting energy demand.

The Republic Atomic Energy Authority (RAEA) was established in 1961 as a statutory corporation to oversee and pioneer the development of nuclear energy within the Republic. Most practical running of the plants within the Republic was devolved to the company Republic Nuclear Fuels Limited in 1975 to demerge energy production from the development sector. The Republic operates 9 AGR reactors at 4 locations and 11 PWR reactors at 7 sites. The number of reactors stems from the Government aim to ensure that the majority of the country's power comes from Nuclear sources, with strong research into new thorium reactor projects with international partners to ensure a cleaner nuclear production process with less waste.

Law Enforcement and Security

Policing and Law Enforcement

Law enforcement in the Republic is primarily devolved to various regional Police Commands who all operate within their own jurisdictions. These regional services are complemented by Republic-wide agencies such as the National Agency for Crime Prevention. Police officers are granted certain powers to enable them to execute their duties. Their primary duties are the protection of life and property, preservation of the peace, and prevention and detection of criminal offences. In the Republic model of policing, officers exercise their powers to police with the implicit consent of the public. "Policing by consent" is the phrase used to describe this. It expresses that the legitimacy of policing in the eyes of the public is based upon a general consensus of support that follows from transparency about their powers, their integrity in exercising those powers and their accountability for doing so.

Asides from the regional commands, there are three Special Police Services that have specific jurisdiction within the space of their work: the Preorian Transport Police, Ministry of Defence Police and National Nuclear Constabulary.

The Republic Border Service and Immigration Enforcement is another legal entity who's personnel have the authourity of a constable within their line of work with regards to enforcement of immigration and customs law, with certain powers of arrest, detention and search.

Police Officers as standard within the Republic are armed persons, required to attend a small-arms training course hosted by the Ministry of Defence and presided over by professional instructors. Most officers are only equipped with a pistol as a sidearm in their line of duty, however after several significant armed crime and terrorist acts most police vehicles have at least one rifle stored within. All regional services also employ a police tactical unit referred to as a Police Quick Reaction Force for emergencies.

Intelligence Departments

The Republic relies on several agencies with various areas of authourity and areas of expertise.

The Department of Security and Counter Terrorism: Counter terrorism, protecting critical national infrastructure and public disorder intelligence gathering

National Fraud Intelligence Bureau: Economic crime intelligence gathering and analysis.

National Labour Abuse Authourity: Human trafficking, slavery, economic, and serious organised crime.

Central Intelligence Directorate: Foreign intelligence gathering and analysis.

Republic Office of Investigation: Domestic counter terrorism and counter espionage intelligence gathering and analysis

Military Intelligence Office: Defence Intelligence

Geography of the Republic

The Republic of Preoria has four distinct geographical regions, the northern area is referred to as the Highlands, it is an area scarred by glaciation with many hills and small mountains sitting at relatively high elevation. The highest point in the country lies here, Mynydd yr Eryr, a mountain with an elevation of 1450m. The majority of the country lies in the Central and Coastal Lowlands, this is where the majority of the Republic's large cities are and where the majority of it's agriculture takes place. Then there are the two Islands, Arryant, to the immediate south of the mainland, which is similar to the Lowlands in it's geographic disposition, and the Isle of Gwylan, further out to sea in the Krimeon, a heavily forested island dotted with extinct-volcanoes.

Map


Major Cities
Caerfyrddin

Caerfyrddin is a coastal city and capital of the Republic, it is the seat of the Republic's government and is both it's wealthiest and largest city at 6.7 million people. It lies at the mouth of the river Wyeden which feeds into the Eastern Channel, part of the Krimeon Sea. Caerfyrddin can trace it's founding back to the historic town of the same name, originally settled in 765 by the native Deceangl people. It was primarily a fishing town up until the year 1049, when the territory was taken over by the Kingdom of Llywnbeli after their armies crossed the channel from the Island of Arryant. In 1140 the Llywnbeli King Edris II decided to move his capital to the town which resulted in it seeing a major boom in population and investment, Cadogan Castle was raised in the city to command the primary river crossing which also served as the residence of the Monarch until the similarly named Cadogan Palace was built in 1309 after the Union of Crowns in the previous century which saw the nation renamed as the Kingdom of Preoria. 

The city eventually suffered from a major fire in 1452 which raised much of the original settlement, however over the next 50 years saw many of it's buildings rebuilt in brick and limestone with the new layout of the city built around the great Caerfyrddin Stones, a circular temple that had survived the fires built to honour Glyndwr, chief of the pantheon of the unique branch of Celtic faith that had been established in the region for centuries before the coming of the Llywnbeli. The city did not see another major catastrophe until in 1683 where Griffith's Rebellion, a major uprising of the peasantry which, sacked the city after defeating the Army of King Pendry VI.

It wasn't until the late 1700's where the city began undergoing a major transformation from the burgeoning industrial revolution, factories replaced many ancient crumbling structures and a series of dockyards sprung up along the river Wyeden. The city also began to become home to many groups who were beginning to embrace ideas such as Republicanism and other fledgling ideas. These thinkers eventually inspired the Great Upheaval of 1822, where the commoners revolted against the increasingly unpopular monarchy, which had since fled from their historic seat of power in Caerfyrddin, back over the sea to Llywnbelan in the previous decade. Northern Armies from the Highlands entered the city as part of their Coastal Campaign in 1827 and routed the last Monarchist forces from the mainland, converting the former Cadogan Palace into the People's Palace, which is still a popular modern attraction of the city.

Modern Caerfyrddin is a highly developed city, keeping it's position as a central hub for many industries and businesses. It still retains many ancient landmarks from throughout it's history and is home to several large Museums such as the Preorian Museum of Natural History.

Dungannon

The most northerly and fourth largest city in the Republic, Dungannon is firmly rooted in the Highlands of Preoria. It is unknown when the city officially was founded, as it was periodically used as a gathering point of many Highland tribes, but from 790 onwards it was recognized as being the site of the capital of the former Kingdom of Durcáinuntil until it united with the Kingdom of Llywnbeli in 1237 after Durcáinian King Braon died and Prince Carwyn of the Llywnbeli inherited both kingdoms as the only eligible heir of either, resulting in their union.

Dungannon has always been known for it's many castles and fortresses that are located in it's suburbs and the city proper, subsequent generations of Monarchs built many such structures in the North to deter rebellion due to the difficulties in communicating through the mountains, and now many of the ruins are celebrated cultural heritage sites of the Highland people despite their origins as a tool of suppression.

Dungannon, despite it's position far from any seas, still managed to establish itself as a major source of natural resources, being known as the "Granite City" for both it's grey appearance from the usage of the stone as a building material and for it's natural wealth. The city suffered many uprisings in it's history as a result of this however, as many locals for centuries saw the Monarchy in the south as sapping resources and wealth from the North to enrich itself, eventually culminating in Dungannon being the first city to declare independence from the Kingdom of Preoria in 1821, the resulting instability saw a Royalist Army attempt to regain control and it's subsequent defeat sparked the Great Upheaval the following year, where the newly declared Republic of Preoria drove the Royalists south and eventually off of the mainland entirely.

To this day Dungannon is honoured as the 'spiritual capital' of the Republic, and many monuments to the Upheaval can be found in the city today.

History of Preoria

Timeline

6th Century
Up until the middle of the 6th Century Preoria was largely a nation dominated by various small tribes and petty kingdoms

7th Century
During the 7th Century the Deceangl people established a cultural hegemon over the Eastern and Southern coastal regions and formed the Kingdom of Deceanglan.

8th Century
The Kingdom of Llywnbeli succeeds in dominating the Isle of Arryant and begins a period of coastal raiding against Deceanglan.
At this time the Kingdom of Durcáinuntil is formed in the Highlands.

9th Century
The Kingdom of Llywnbeli subjugates the western peninsular tribes and establishes a presence on the Mainland

10th Century
The Kingdom of Deceanglan cedes the port city of Northspire to the Durcáinuntil in exchange for assistance against the growing power of the Llywnbeli.
The 11 Years War breaks out as both Kingdoms attempt to push the Llywnbeli out but fails and results in the Llywnbeli expanding to Caeberwyn.
King Iestyn I of Deceanglan is killed in battle during this war, sparking a succession crisis which resulted in a civil war between the nobility.

11th Century
Exploiting the power vacuum caused by a series of civil wars the Llywnbeli invade and annex the former lands of Deceanglan.

12th Century
Llywnbeli King Edris II moves his capital to Caerfyrddin to be closer to his main rival, King Aniéon of Durcáinuntil.
With no progress either way, near the end of the century both Kingdoms marry their heirs to one another, securing a period of relative peace.

13th Century
In 1237, King Braon dies in Durcáinuntil, his Grandson, Prince Carwyn of Llywnbeli, inherits the throne of Durcáinuntil and after the sudden death of his own father becomes King of both Kingdoms, uniting them under the new Kingdom of Preoria.

14th Century
The Kingdom of Preoria is ravaged by plague, it is estimated that 1/3rd of the total population perished between 1330-1355
As a result of the plague, the nobility work the peasantry harder on their lands, to attempt to make up for the reduction in workers. This led to the Glorious Revolt, which saw peasants across Preoria rise up in arms against their nobility, whilst the peasants were defeated by the more organized armies of the nobility it led to better treatment and conditions for the newly recognized working-class.

15th Century
As a result of the new rights established for the commoners under the Brynmor Decree of 1388, the nobility saw a decrease in wealth and power and became at odds with King Arvel II, who's father had penned the decree. After no consensus could be reached, and more taxes were needed to suppress ongoing rebellion in the Highlands, the Thengs' War broke out between the Thengs, who owned most of the land and the Crown.

King Arvel II personally led his armies against the rebelling Thengs and crushed their main force outside of Cairnmore. However Theng Enfys of Kinlead was able to cross the river Hywel north of Caerfyrddin and laid siege to several castles along the coastal region. This resulted in a stalemate and the subsequent introduction of the Treaty of Llŷr. Which limited the King's powers and established a Parliament to better represent the will of the nobility.

The Great fire of Caerfyrddin occurred during this century.

16th Century
This Century saw the introduction of the First Constitution. A document which demanded the Monarchy surrender further powers to the Nobles, this is commonly recognized as the death of the Preorian Feudal system as the Parliament slowly began assuming more and more power.
The Constitution outlawed many things such as slavery, unfair taxation and protection of the faith as overseas religions began to enter the country.

17th Century
The commoners still toiling under the rule of the Nobility, who were now able to empower themselves through Parliament, had suffered as the Nobles overturned many protections of the Brynmor Decree centuries prior. This agitation eventually resulted in a freeholder named Pwyll Griffith, gathering men and marching on his local lord's castle, taking it and declaring a state of revolt. Soon joined by tens of thousands from neighbouring regions Griffith's peasant army defeated several Royalist forces sent to crush them before marching on Caerfyrddin itself, sacking the city and forcing the Noble Parliament and King Pendry VI to sign the Second Brynmor Decree. This decree ensured that the Parliament now had proper representation for the commoners, forming the House of Commons to check the power of the House of Thengs and ensure that more rights were given to the common people. After this the system of land ownership was reformed, and now the commoners could rent and purchased their own lands and freely move where they chose.

This resulted in the Agricultural Revolution at the end of the century, as new means of land ownership and wealth among the common people resulted in major changes to farming and evolution of implements.

18th Century
The Industrial Revolution takes off in the 1760's, following in the footsteps of Agricultural Revolution.
During this period the first major banks and insurance firms begin to form in Caerfyrddin.
After suffering several attacks from overseas slaver raiders at this time the Parliament signs into action the Naval Act of 1772, funding the Royal Navy to begin a campaign against slavers in the Krimeon.
The Royal Army lands in Falcree, on the Isle of Gwylan, defeating the local petty king and abolishing the slave markets that had been founded there. It is formally annexed by an Act of Parliament and a garrison is established as waves of Preorian Settlers begin to arrive.
Continued suppression of peoples in the Highlands begins to breed significant content in the North.

19th Century
The Crown relocates itself back to Llwynbelan after almost a millenium, fearing another uprising of the scale of Griffith's Rebellion.
After a Royalist Army marches on Dungannon the New Republican movement in the city petitions the population to take up arms against what is seen as an oppressive, distant government. The resultant defeat of this army emboldened the rebels and they soon pushed towards a full-scale revolution.
The recent arrival of the industrialization of the printing process enabled Republican riders to dispatch large numbers of propaganda leaflets in every town, city and village they passed through.
The Great Upheaval begins, much of the country descends into civil war under the banner of abolishing the monarchy and the nobility's control over the Government.
After almost 6 years of battle, the Armies of the newly founded Republic of Preoria take the capital and formally sign into law the Second Constitution, abolishing the Monarchy and severely restricting the rights of the remaining nobles, though the House of Thengs was allowed to continue as a large number of nobles backed the Republican cause, however now commoners could be appointed to it.

The first Republican Prime Minister Bran Prothero declares an official state of War between the Preorian Republic and the Preorian Kingdom, vowing that all Preorian people will be liberated from tyranny.

20th Century
In 1904, the Republic makes good on it's promise and after years of building up a fleet to cross the Channel, invades the Island Arryant.
The Great Liberation lasts between 1904 and 1910, seeing large scale trench warfare and the first use of poison gas and military aircraft.
The Republic breaks through the primary lines of the Royal Army during it's 1908 Summer Offensive, nearly 2.3 million men had perished over the previous 4 years on both sides.
After suffering a series of major defeats against the more experienced Royal Navy, the Republic throws it's new Dreadnought-class Battleships into a major engagement to break the Royalist Blockade of the channel, soundly defeating the Royalist Home Fleet after baiting it into a minefield, before engaging it, resulting in the loss of the four remaining Royalist Battleships.
With their navy defeated and their lines disintegrating, the Royalist Government flees once again to the Isle of Gwylan and Arryant is fully liberated.

In 1940 the Preorian Republic, now a wealthy and stable state, organizes it's final campaign against the Kingdom of Preoria. With Prime Minister Llewelyn Merrick, a veteran of the Great Liberation stating. "As our forefathers once cast the abomination of Slavery from the Isle of Gwylan. So too shall the Republic cast the abomination of Divine Rule forever from it's lands, ensuring every man is born free and liberated from tyranny.", At the end of this address Republic Navy aircraft carriers began air raids agains the remaining Royal Navy bases before the Army landed outside the city of Falcree.

The Falcree Liberation lasts until 1943, when Republican tanks entered the grounds of Kemble Palace and the remaining known members of the Royal Family are captured. The last King of Preoria, King
Carwyn IV, is taken to Caerfyrddin in chains, where he is forced to sign the instrument of surrender in which he willingly signs away the rights of his dynasty to rule forever. He is then executed by firing squad for crimes against the people and his surviving relatives are medically sterlized so that no claimant to the throne could ever arise again.

In 1962 Preoria engages it's first Nuclear Reactor, providing power to Caerfyrrdin.

In 1970 the Republic launches it's first successful Satellite, Eryr-1, into low-mundus orbit.

In 1981 an economic crash sees several industries fold in the Republic. Many traditional industries of the north close down forever and the Highlands loses much of it's wealth.

In 1982 a communist uprising in Falcree is put down by the Republic Army, a Red-Scare takes hold for the next decade.

In 1990 the Republic recovers from it's recession and a new age of wealth from a miracle of economic revitalization spearheaded by Democratic Labour Union Prime Minister Aeron Bethel begins in the Republic.
