     I guess this ought to be proposed as a bill, so I am introducing it on behalf of Governor Jbrase:

Constitutional Convention Petition

The Southeast Region formally petitions the President of Atlasia to call a Constitutional Convention for the purposes of consolidation of the constitution and/or legislative reboot of the game.

     Inspired by the Ludlow Amendment proposed by Senator Libertas:

Accountable Military Bill

1. Should the Southeast Militia be committed to action by executive order, except in response to a direct attack by a hostile force, it shall be the right of the citizens to petition for a referendum on the matter.

2. Should the petition gain the signatures of three registered citizens of the Southeast, a voting booth on the referendum shall be opened within fourty-eight hours to remain open for seventy-two hours, unless the Southeast Militia is recalled from the action in question within that time.

3. Should a majority of citizens who vote on the referendum vote in favor of recalling the Southeast Militia from the action in question, then the Southeast Militia shall be immediately recalled, with the withdrawal completed within two weeks of the closing of the voting booth on the matter in question.

As president of the Atlasian Association for the Advancement of Evil People, I feel it necessary to introduce legislation to continue my effort to make the Southeast the most evil region in all of Atlasia. We should continue to rename out institutions to show just how evil our region is, so that the rest of the nation will fear us and therefore not mess with us.

The Council of Darkness Amendment

1. All references in the Southeastern Constitution to the Legislature/House of Representatives shall be replaced with the new name "Council of Darkness".
2. The title by which members of this body are referred shall be "Councilor" and all references in the Southeastern Constitution to the previous title shall be changed accordingly.


I welcome alternative suggestions to the names, but I insist that they be evil.

With the change in the name of our region, I suggest we continue our cultural revolution and change our flag to reflect our glory. Something as black as our hearts, but that also shows our glory. I suggest the following candidates for consideration:





I have a few varients for this next one:







The last one says "IMPERIAL DOMINION" at the top and "BOW DOWN OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES" at the bottom. (font is Daedric runes from the Elder Scrolls game series) I'm willing to make versions that say something else as well, if we can think of a better motto.

How about a better made version of this? I threw it together on MS paint



Not quite sure how you'd make a better version of that - it's a pretty plain design. Also, I don't think it's suitable for an empire type government. Most importantly it's missing any kind of imperial symbol - the symbol really makes the brand, IMHO.

After a few other infrastructural bills have been considered, KS21 and myself have come up with another bill:



Road Creation Act- Blanche Lincoln Boulevard- Monticello, Ark.


1.   This act creates a new segment of Arkansas State Highway 35, with four lanes total, a divided highway running along the path specified, with new oak trees planted in the center median (local government will decide how many, and how far apart they shall be spaced), with at-grade intersections.
2.   This divided highway shall be named Blanche Lincoln Boulevard.
3.   The map below is the specified path.
4.   This bill appropriates $100,000,000 for the completion of this project

Just to be clear, I am retracting the "Legal Naming Conventions" bill.  After voting on the "Private School Administration Rights Bill" ends, the next bill will be the "The Freedom to View Classic Network News Act".  After that I will put the bill Sanchez posted in the Legislature up to debate; however, Sanchez, I would be grateful if you posted it in this thread first.
