THE SUPPORTING THE ARTS ACT

Whereas, Talossa has shown an interest in music, and
Whereas, the BHAID traditionally supports the arts, and
Whereas, my father (who was a musician) recently passed away, and
Whereas, I have supported an organization called "Major Chords For Minors" since it's beginning.
Therefore, the Ziu authorises the Bureau of Humanitarian Aid and International Development to make a one-time contribution of $50 (USD), to Major Chords For Minors https://www.majorchordsforminors.org/

Vuode / Voting thread for Local Autonomy Bill
November 20, 2023, 08:40:15 PM
Local Autonomy Bill

A proposed act of the Estats Xhenerais of the United Provinces of Vuode and Dandeberg to establish mechanisms of local autonomy, for the purpose of advancing provincial activity and cultivating contributions to the social, historical, and cultural tapestry of Vuode and of Talossa at large.

Section 1: Localities

(1) The localities of the United Provinces of Vuode and Dandenburg (hereafter referred to as "Vuode") are the parishes and townships.

(2) The names and boundaries of the parishes and townships of Vuode are determined by the Parishes and Township Decree (UPD-2013-001), issued by Éovart Grischun on 7 March 2013/XXXIV.

Section 2: Residence

(1)(a) Residence is the condition of a provincial citizen of Vuode (hereafter referred to as "citizen" unless otherwise noted) of being assigned to a locality, in similar fashion as a citizen of Talossa is assigned to a province.
(b) Residence in a particular township implies residence in the parish in which that particular township is located.
(c) Residence is actual in the case that the personal domicile of a citizen is within the locality in which that citizen resides.
(d) Residence is ceremonial otherwise.
(e) No citizen may reside in more than one township or more than one parish at any given time.
(f) The number of residents in each township must be as close to equal as possible.

(2)(a) Any citizen may publicly petition the Premier of Vuode or another citizen or citizens deputized by the Premier of Vuode for such purposes (both hereafter referred to as "Premier") for residence in a particular township of the petitioner's choosing
(b) Should the petitioner not already reside in a township and should residence by the petitioner in the township of the petitioner's choosing not contradict Section 2(1)(f) of this Act, the Premier will grant the petitioner residence in the township of the petitioner's choosing within a period of no less than seven days and no more than fourteen days.
(c) Any citizen already residing in a township may request to transfer residence by similar process.

(3)(a) Should more than one citizen request residence in a township during the same period specified in Section (2)(2)(b) of this Act, so that Section 2(1)(f) of this Act would be contradicted by the granting of residence to all petitioners, the issue will be resolved by the following protocol.
(b) The petitions of citizens for actual residence will be given priority over the petitions of citizens for ceremonial residence.
(c) Should more than one citizen petition for actual residence in the same township, all such petitioners will be granted residence, regardless of Section 2(1)(f) of this Act.
(d) Should a citizen petition for actual residence in a township in which ceremonial residents already reside, residence will be granted to the petitioner but the ceremonial residents will not be compelled to leave, regardless of Section 2(1)(f) of this Act.
(f) Should more than one citizen petition for ceremonial residence in the same township, residence will be granted to one such petitioner selected at random.

(4) No citizen will be compelled to leave their township of residence except by act of the Estats Xhenerais.

Section 3: Incorporation

(1)(a) The residents of a township may choose to incorporate their township if, by majority vote, they submit a proposed charter to the Premier for approval.
(b) The proposed charter details the proposed mechanisms, institutions, and terminology of local governance.
(c) The proposed charter must be consistent with the principles of democracy and with national and provincial law.
(d) The township is incorporated upon the approval of its charter by the Premier.
(e) Should the Premier deny approval for the proposed charter, or fail to respond within fourteen days of its submission, the residents of the township may appeal to the Estats Xhenerais.

(2) Any parish, in which at least half of the townships are incorporated, may incorporate by the same process.

(3) The Estats Xhenerais has the power to amend or abrogate the charter of any locality, at any time, for any reason.

(4) A locality becomes disincorporated should it no longer contain any residents.

Section 4: Autonomy

(1) An incorporated locality has the right to establish ordinances, in accordance with its charter, that affect matters entirely within its boundaries.

(2) Ordinances may affect matters including, but not necessarily limited to, the establishment of local symbols, the naming of local features, and the proclamation of days of observance.

(3) The Estats Xhenerais has the power to amend or abrogate any ordinance of any locality, at any time, for any reason.

(4) Should a locality become disincorporated, its ordinances will remain established until amended or abrogated by the Estas Xhenerais or, should that locality become reincorporated, by the new local authorities.

Section 5: Records

(1) The Premier will maintain a record of citizens that reside in particular localities and whether such residence is actual or ceremonial.

(2) The local authorities and the Premier will maintain records of the charter and ordinances of incorporated localities, as well as records of local officeholders.

Vuode / Nominating a Premier
October 27, 2023, 08:39:22 AM
This will be the thread for nominating a Premier for Grand Session XVI. The nomination period shall last 3 days (until 08:30 Talossan Time Monday). I would have liked to go a bit longer but in the interest of expediency I chose a shorter period.

Vuode / Premier
October 26, 2023, 09:04:50 PM
In the past we began by nominating people for Premier and then held an election. Though with only 3 members of the Estats Xhenerais I would assume a nomination and a second would constitute a duly elected Premier. Does everyone agree?

Vuode / Estats Xhenerais
October 03, 2023, 12:50:31 PM
Well, since we have no presiding officer or premier and no moderator currently in Vuode I believe it falls to the Cunstaval to dissolve our current Estats Xhenerais (assuming I am reading the rules correctly). Once that is done I will create a thread for the purpose of claiming seats in the upcoming Estats Xhenerais. The really confusing thing here is that the previous leadership never updated the Wiki page so I don't even know which Grand Session is ending or beginning. More research will be needed.

Vuode / Happy to see
September 26, 2023, 07:38:23 PM
When I first joined Talossa I was assigned to Vuode and I was very excited. However my excitement quickly diminished about Vuode. It quickly became apparent that at the time there were only about 3 active citizens (including myself) and I was immediately thrust into a position of leadership that I was neither prepared for or truly wanted. As near as I can tell I was soon the ONLY active citizen still here after Viteu renounced his citizenship. I am so happy to see new citizens joining the ranks of the Vuodean citizenship and looking to take positions of leadership. I am currently the Senator of Vuode and since we currently have no presiding officer or premier and I think I may be the only active member of the Estats Xhenerais I will start a thread as soon as the national elections are complete for the happy citizens of Vuode to claim their seats in said chambers. Once that step is complete we will begin the process of electing a new presiding officer and premier and then...I will step back and watch Vuode become a thriving province!

The James "Jimmy" Letherer Memorial Civil Rights Day

Whereas Talossa does not currently have a national Civil Rights Day, and

Whereas at least one Talossan is related  to a man who walked the 54 miles from Selma, Alabama to Montgomery, Alabama on crutches (he only had one leg) with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on March 21, 1965.

Therefore be it enacted by the Ziu that the second subsection of the fifth section of Title F of el Lexhatx, which currently reads

5.2.1. the month of March: Berber Heritage Month. All citizens are encouraged to express themselves in whatever medium is appropriate, on the question of Talossa's real or imagined Berbercentric prehistory.
5.2.2. 7 April: Cjovani Day. This holiday honors a trailblazing example of Talossan subcultural development, the Cjovani Benitians, and serves as a day for Talossans to consider the potential for future subcultures in their own provinces
5.2.3. June 24: Immigration Day
5.2.4. September 28: Democracy Day
5.2.5. October 16: Publicity Day
5.2.6. December 12: Llimbaziua (Language Day).

El Glheþ Talossan / I need another translation
May 22, 2023, 08:14:52 PM
I looked it up on l'oversteir and found translations for the individual words but I am not sure how it would go together for proper grammar. I would like Talossan National Congress Knights translated please. I found Talossan translates to Talossan, National translates to Naziunal, Congress translates to Congreßeu and Knights translates to els cnec'hts. My best guess is Congreßeu Naziunal de Talossan els Cnec'hts

Wittenberg / My favorite books
March 25, 2023, 12:39:58 PM
Are there any Talossan language experts who would be willing to take a stab at translating the beginning of every one of the 14 books in the series? I would but even with l'oversteir I would get the grammar wrong so it would be horrible.

"The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose above the great mountainous island of Tremalking. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning."

The Organizing Our Finances Act

C.1.5.8 The burgermeister shall be required to submit a Final Financial Report 30 days before the end of the Cosa to include all expenditures during the Cosa.

Wittenberg / Financial reports
March 21, 2023, 09:03:14 AM
I have no idea how to word this properly but it seems to me that there should be some sort of law requiring an end of term financial report to be made out by the outgoing leadership rather than leaving it to the newly elected government to try and find all of the proper information. This would lead to a much more seamless transition to the next Cosa. I have been following along on the Terplaziums (sp) and it appears that some information needed for the financial report has been difficult to locate and the opposition is using that lack of information as a bludgeon against the current leadership. Should we consider a new law requiring a financial report be submitted before a certain point prior to the Cosa ending? I would also suggest that there should be a freeze on spending between the final financial report and the end of the Cosa to which it applies.
