The Reylan Imperial Triumvirate (RIT) is a peaceful and benevolent micronation, founded in 2005 by the reigning Emperor Taeglan I Nihilus. It has been in existence for several years, always seeking to expand its borders and Electorate. Citizens each hold the title of Elector, demonstrating their right to vote and affect the way the Imperium is run. The Imperium runs under the principle of a 'De-centralised Imperial Triumvirate' recognising that although an Imperial power, the Emperor and Imperial Parliament's power is limited by the Council of Three.
The Reylan Imperial Triumvirate (The RIT or the Imperium)was founded as the Reylan Empire on the 5th July 2005 by the current Emperor, Taeglan I Nihilus. Appointing ministers to deal with the day-to-day running of the Empire, things progressed rapidly. The Empire originally started as a Constitutional Monarchy, with the Emperor himself holding little power. Claiming several territories, the Emperor began a rigorous recruitment campaign for citizens.
The Imperium ran in this form for one year. After considering his options, the Emperor announced that the Imperium would be reborn as a Republic, holding a swift election, in which he was unanimously elected to the newly created position of Chancellor, the re-organisation began in earnest. Unfortunately, after several months as Chancellor, the Imperial Senate decided that it would be in the best interests of citizens to implement a new political system. As a result, the Chancellor re-took the Title of Emperor of the Reylan Imperial Triumvirate, implementing three new governmental systems the Council of Three (Comprised of the Three Triumvirs)and the Imperial Parliament. Since that day, now over three years ago, the Imperium has continued under the leadership of Taeglan I Nihilus.
The Imperial System
The Imperium is run by three executive branches, as detailed below:
The Council of Three
The Council of Three is comprised of the three Triumvirs: The Imperial Triumvir (The Emperor), The Parliamentary Triumvir (The First Minister) and the Citizens Triumvir (A citizen elected to serve upon the council). The purpose of the Council of Three is to ensure that no executive branch exceeds its authority. All decisions of the Imperial Parliament are ratified by the Council of Three and it is at this meeting where the Emperor must announce his intention regarding the final ratification of the bill.
The Imperial Parliament
The Imperial Parliament is divided into two ministries with several sub-ministries. The two main ministries are those of Internal and External Affairs. They are further divided as below.
Ministry of Internal Affairs:
- Ministry of Transport
- Ministry of Culture, Sport and Leisure
- Ministry of Finance
- Ministry of Justice
- Ministry of Science
- Ministry of Environmental Affairs
- Ministry of Health
- Ministry of Communication
Ministry of External Affairs:
- Diplomatic Service
The Empire has three Titular orders: the Imperial Order of Reyla, the Order of the Moon and the Order of the Caduceus. The orders have seven ranks, in descending order of precedence: Prince, Duke, Earl, Count, Lord and Knight. The Imperial Order is the personal reward of the Emperor, whereas the others are granted by the Imperial Parliament.
