The Royal reformed States of America is a federalist constitutional monarchy. It contains lower level government entities called "Royal reformed States" and a ruler who the power to pass any decree that he or she wishes that is not in violation of the Rights of People. Any government official may be removed by a seventeen-twentieths majority vote of the people. The government is overseen by the Royal reformed Department of Government.
The executive branch contains the departments and the head of state, a king or queen. Each king or queen may pass any Royal reformed Decree at any time for any reason. The only exception is that no decree may violate the Rights of People, a RrSA bill of rights. The current king is His Excellency King Wilary the First.
The Heir or Heiress to the Throne
The Heir or Heiress to the Royal reformed Throne is a prince or princess. He or she is chosen by the current king or queen before the king's or queen's death and does not have to be related to the king or queen. The prince or princess must have been a citizen of the RrSA for at least ten months at the time of becoming prince or princess. If no prince or princess is chosen by the time of the king's or queen's death, the citizens shall vote on a heir or heiress to the throne. The winner is the person with a four-fifths majority.
Royal reformed Departments
The RrSA currently has eight Royal reformed Departments. Each department oversees certain responsibilities of the Royal reformed Government and is headed by a duke. The duke is referred to as "Duke (last name) of the Royal reformed Department of (department)" and is elected by the people. The winner is the person with the majority of votes. The departments are:
- The Royal reformed Department of the Treasury
- The Royal reformed Department of the People
- The Royal reformed Department of Royal reformed Services
- The Royal reformed Department of Justice
- The Royal reformed Department of the Military
- The Royal reformed Department of Government
- The Royal reformed Department of Foreign Relations
- The Royal reformed Department of the Interior
The judicial branch contains the four Royal reformed Courts of the RrSA. They are each headed by a high judge, who is the main person that runs the court, and rules on cases with six lower judges. The high judge is referred to as "High Judge (last name) of the Royal reformed Court of (court)", the lower judges are referred to as "Judge (last name) of the Royal reformed Court of (court)". Judges are appointed for life by the king or queen.
Royal reformed Court of Crime
The Royal reformed Court of Crime overhears cases involving the violation of Royal reformed Law. After the case is heard, the judges give their verdict. The punishments given to a guilty party can be fines and/or prison sentences.
Royal reformed Court of Civil Cases
The Royal reformed Court of Civil Cases overhears cases involving suits between citizens of the RrSA. After the case is heard, the judges decide whom they are in support of and the portion of the value of the suit that the winner shall receive if he or she was the plaintiff. The value given to the plaintiff shall not exceed the value of the suit.
Royal reformed Court of the Rights of People
The Royal reformed Court of the Rights of People overhears cases involving violations of the Rights of People. After the case is heard, the judges decide if the Rights of People has been violated. If it has been violated, a proper decision shall be reached to how the violation shall be removed.
Royal reformed Court of Inhumanity
The Royal reformed Court of Inhumanity overhears cases that involve acts of inhumanity. A defendant may be only brought before the RrCIH or he or she may be brought before both the RrCC and the RrCIH. An act of inhumanity does not have to violate any Royal reformed Law, it only must be excessively cruel, painful, or inhumane. Doing absolutely nothing in front of an act of cruelty may also be considered inhumane. After the case is heard the judges decide if the act was inhumane enough to deserve punishment. The punishment may be fines, prison sentences or any level of the act they inflicted, or did nothing to stop, short of endangering the convicted's life, or depriving he or she of it.
Any of the four Royal reformed Courts can overhear cases that are not under the jurisdiction of the RrSA or will never be able to be heard in what is called a "Ceremonial Trial". The right of the courts to do this was created in the Royal reformed King Wilary the First Decree Number Two. In these trials, all known information is brought forward to the judges overseeing the case. After all information is given to them, the judges debate the case untill a six-sevenths majority is reached. If one cannot be reached after one day, the trial is considered to have ended in a "neutral" verdict. If a decision is reached, the judges announce their verdict. No punishment may be given in a ceremonial trial, but it can give the probable verdict in a case that cannot and may never be heard in a Royal reformed Court.
Each Royal reformed State is responsible for the smaller issues that come up in the RrSA. A state is headed by a governor who is ruler of the state and may pass any State reformed Decree that he or she wishes, that does not violate the Rights of People. A state may create departments to help oversee the responsibilities of the State reformed Government. The king or queen may pass a Royal reformed Decree to overrule a state decree. A governor is to be referred to as "Governor (last name) of the Royal reformed State of (state)". A governor is elected by the people. The winner is the person with the majority of votes.
