You are invited to join the Balançeu / Balance party if you have interest in retaining the current monarchy for Talossa that changes only under occasional and extraordinary circumstances. The current system has worked for over 40 years. Balançeu / Balance believes there should not be a change to an elected office called “King” similar to a President (such as occurs in 12 other global countries such as Armenia, Azerbaijan, Burundi, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Syria, and Tajikistan every 7 years).

Several other parties support 55RZ21 The Talossa Shall Choose Its King Amendment. Balançeu / Balance party does not support that legislation as Talossa already has a King, and in the future may have a different King or Queen through existing traditions.

In general, the Balançeu / Balance party supports the combination of an elected Ziu (Cosa and Senäts) balanced with a Monarchy which is not subject to the vagaries of periodic elections. A King or Queen who operates as a Chief Executive Officer, who may delegate tasks as he or she sees fit, and takes a long view of events and circumstances beyond that of ephemeral political arguement.

If you support Balançeu / Balance in the election, you are also invited to join the party LIST such that your voice can be heard directly within the Cosa. Just write your name in the thread https://talossa.net/members/xpb/activity/439/#acomment-440 such that one or more seats granted in the election may be yours to represent, depending upon the number of ballots cast for Balançeu / Balance. As per Lex B.2.3 The ballot must also include, for each party contesting the election, a list of citizens to whom the party intends to award Cosa seats.

Alternatively you can call or text message 414-253-3643 (41-HALF-DOGE) or you can send email to balanceubalance@gmail.com. As per rules posted for the current election cycle, you need to make your intention to join the party list known prior to 13 May 23:59 TST (-5 UTC) – and preferably much earlier to aid the administration of the election. This information becomes public knowledge as part of the ballot, but throughout the balloting process you as a matter of course retain the right to vote as you choose without regard to being listed.

Cézembre / Opportunity for legislation and amendments July 2-13
« on: May 04, 2021, 08:41:45 PM »
One may note a flurry of constitutional amendments and other legislation happening in other locations.  My interpretation is that current Cézembre statutes do not provide adequate notice prior to the general election for the Cosa (conducted by the Chancery) and for the Lord Warden (conducted by Cézembre) for amendments.  There is adequate time, however, to consider legislation to be referred by l'Etats to the citizens of Cézembre for the upcoming Cézembre election taking place June 14-July 1.  I call for a session of l'Etats June 2-13 for consideration of those potential bills, which in turn will be informed by the polls conducted in the realm prior to that date.

Squirrels supporting a Wolf vs Hamsters with a leashed Chihuahua

Consider the Greater State Arms with
supporters of Two Talossan Squirrels Proper

Both have great vitality, and are clever beings of their own devices, wild and free, yet come together to support the Kingdom, and can be envisioned as the Cosa and Senäts.

Now consider the Royal Arms which include Quarterly 2 and 3 per fess azure and vert, a wolf salient argent armed and langued gules

This element is wise, as there are two wolves fighting in each person's heart. One is love, the other is hate. Which one wins?  The one that is fed the most.

There are those who hate the idea of a King or Queen unbound and free to direct the course of our history with greatly appreciated support.  They hate that the vagaries of time and events include only unscheduled and occasional change to the leader of the pack.  They desire to domesticate the wolf, to change it into a chihuahua that they can stuff in a bag or kennel when desired, or simply drop off at a shelter (or worse) when they want a different one.  They in fact want to change themselves from squirrels to hamsters in a cage of their own design, running on wheels of circular logic, declaring a chihuahua to be a wolf, asserting their own independence whilst residing behind bars.

On 26 December 1979 King Ben lovingly created the Kingdom of Talossa.  He wrestled with the wolves, and from time to time fed the hate.  However, the creation endures over 4 decades later, bourne out of the love of the citizens for the Kingdom.  The Kingdom even attracted back those who had left for a time with loving arms.  Yet, some of those same citizens still nurture hate of the crown and seek to obfuscate their desired change to a Republic -- with false flags, logistical legerdemain, and other schemes to tame what is wild and free, and which shall endure on natural fate rather than mechanism.

The Webspace / Subdirectories of Cézembre
« on: April 22, 2021, 09:05:37 AM »
Is there a method by which subdirectories may be established under ...>>Cézembre>>...? 

The purpose would be to organize types of discussion, such as l'Etats for official business posted for consideration, RAK as equivalent to The Hopper of the Ziu, CLO for the consideration of homestead requests by the Cézembre Land Office, CBS: Cézembre Bureau of Standards for measurement criteria, UCZ for the University of Cézembre etc.

There is a new imagery viewer that will take you directly to Cézembre


The full URL is


The Cézembre Land Office will be adding features to this service from time to time with placement of granted homesteads, public works, and other points of interest.

There has been previous discussion https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=740.0 regarding the upcoming election of the Lord Warden.

The previous election https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=354.0 after my temporary appointment (for 1 Clark) was thought to seat you for the forseeable future, yet the Chancery insists that election needs to be conducted yet again after your seating for a single Cosa session.  It would be much more reasonable for the period of service to be adjusted based upon that previous election.

The question which has been posed in various ways is

@Ián Tamorán

Do you wish to remain Lord Warden, the representative of Cézembre to the Senäts of Talossa (which at the current time is a Kingdom)?

I believe the timetable for your declaration of such would need to take place by 14 May as per https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=738.0 to be in sync.

You appear to have been too busy to respond to discussion asked for in https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=737.0 nor any other post in this Cézembre forum since January 18, 2021, nor any other post in any forum since February 16, 2021

Be that as it may, you do need to respond at least within a month from today.

Since it has been determined that by statutes in the Cézembrean Adminstration Guide (CAG) A9 Lord Warden Election Act: "If there is one sole candidate for the position of Lord Warden at the start of the election, no election will be held and the sole candidate will be considered elected to the position."
And as Sénéchal, and not standing for this election (as I had previously when there was an election for Lord Warden), I would thus conduct the non-election (since Lord Warden cannot be appointed as per the Chancery regardless of intention of Cézembre and thus need to be elected in a non-election) should no other person decide to declare within that same timeframe until 14 May.

Should you choose to ignore declaration of intent somewhere in the Cézembre forum by 14 May, and should no other person declare intent to seek the position of Lord Warden somewhere in the Cézembre forum, then that position would be left vacant.

As Sénéchal, I cannot conduct an election for that same position, should it be due in the current election cycle, but I will stand for that position, should an election be required.  There may be others interested in standing for that position.  The question remains as to whether someone will accept appointment as the Conducting Officer as part of the CAG A8: The Sénéchal Elections Act to hold either a non-election election (for one standing candidate), or an actual election (for more than one standing candidate).

Cézembre / RAK - The Cézembre Shall Keep Its King ***WITHDRAWN***
« on: April 12, 2021, 11:02:11 AM »
Our King is on the RAK

Regarding the King - John by the Grace of God, King of Talossa and of all its Realms and Regions, King of Cézembre, Sovereign Lord and Protector of Péngöpäts and the New Falklands, Defender of the Faith, Leader of the Armed Forces, Viceroy of Hoxha and Vicar of Atatürk with the official Talossan name of Ian Lupul:

Currently the CAG reads:

Article 1. The Sovereign Province of Cézembre is an autonomous and self-governing member of the federal Talossan nation and pledges eternal allegiance to His Royal Majesty, and the Regipäts Talossan.

Proposed A14 additions to Article 1

Section 1

Cézembre is a constitutional Monarchy with a King (or, if female, Queen) as its head of State.

Section 2

The King is the symbolic head of the Cézembre. Cézembre democratically grants the King certain Royal Powers and duties as described in this CAG and in statute law. l'Etats may establish procedures for when the King fails to perform a duty.

Section 3

The King of Cézembre is King John I, until his demise, abdication, or removal from the throne. Should the King at any time renounce or lose his citizenship of Cézembre, that renunciation or loss shall be deemed to imply his abdication of the Throne. Upon the demise, abdication, or removal from the Throne of the King, l'Etats will consider a new candidate.

Section 4

In dire circumstances, when the King is judged by competent medical authority to be incapable of executing his duties, or if he is convicted of violation of this CAG, treason, bribery, nonfeasance endangering the safety, order or good government of Cézembre, or other high crimes, Cézembre may remove the King from the Throne. l'Etats shall pronounce by a three-fourths vote, with the approval of  that the King is to be removed, and this pronouncement shall immediately be transmitted to the people for their verdict in a referendum. If a two-thirds majority of the people concur, the King is removed.

Section 5

The King may, at whim, appoint, replace, or remove a Regent (or a Council of Regency, which is considered equivalent to a Regent), who shall administer the government in the name of the King, and exercise all powers in the CAG or legally vested in the King, except the power to appoint or replace a Regent. l'Etats may by law remove or replace any appointed Regent, and if l'Etats removes a Regent appointed by the King, the King may not reappoint the same person Regent without the prior consent of the l'Etats.

Section 6

The King may grant titles of nobility and confer awards and decorations.

Cézembre / Introducing the RAK
« on: April 12, 2021, 10:28:13 AM »
I introduce, as Sénéchal of Cézembre, with possible use by future administrations:

RAK = shortened form of the Breton raktresoù-lezenn, as a method to list proposed legislation, projet de loi, proxhet for the CAG ( CÉZEMBREAN ADMINISTRATION GUIDE )

To "put something on the RAK" will be to introduce items for discussion prior to posting and decision in sessions of l'Etats, similar to the hopper for the Ziu, and where some such RAK may rise to the level of referral by l'Etats for a poll of all Cézembreans.

Items of this type placed into https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?board=12.0 or similar at https://talossa.net/groups/citaxhienita-cezembre/ will use the preamble RAK until such time as forum discussion can be adjusted with a subdirectory for this purpose.

Calling to order members of l'Etats
@Txosuè Éiric Rôibeardescù
@Ián Tamorán
@X. Pol Briga
@Ián S.G. Txaglh

Given the S:reu Tamorán is already serving as Lord Warden, and was recently elected, and should he wish to continue service, and should there be no other other candidates for that office; perhaps the other members l'Etats can endorse him to the populace, and thus our election will be conducted in public and by acclamation?   I freely give my endorsement in that regard, and look to see if S:reus Rôibeardescù and Txaglh will do so also in this thread.   We will await the timeframe of the 56th session of the Ziu to determine if there are any other candidates.

In this case, the implementation of any other system of voting for only one candidate would be moot.  The only things that may come ballot would be candidates for l'Etats, and referenda directed to the citizenry, which need not involve the Talossan Chancery if perhaps   @Amada Merþedes could add conducting the election to her duties as Moderator of this forum.

@Ián Tamorán

In regard to your consideration of http://www.talossa.ca/files/bills.php?cosa=55&bill=21

as it relates to the existing Organic Law
Article II: The King
Section 3

The King of Talossa is King John I, until his demise, abdication, or removal from the throne. Should the King at any time renounce or lose his citizenship, that renunciation or loss shall be deemed to imply his abdication of the Throne. Upon the demise, abdication, or removal from the Throne of the King, the Uppermost Cort shall be a Council of Regency. (54RZ28)

I was not aware that the King had abdicated, nor have I seen any formal process to remove him, only to remove this section of the Organic Law as a fait accompli - am I missing something?

Cézembre / l'Etats session 3, 8-15 March 2021

@Ián S.G. Txaglh

The third instance of this legislative session is called for 8-15 March 2021.  Hear Ye Hear Ye Hear Ye let all with business before l'Etats bring their business in detail to this thread. 

Some possible topics shall be:

1. Ongoing business of the CLO Cézembre Land Office

2. Welcoming of immigrants under Statute E.7.10

3. Potential identification documents (possibly last issued 2012)

4. Formation of a CBS Cézembre Bureau of Standards

5. General discussion of actions of the Ziu

It may also be appropriate to introduce the concept of Vote of Confidence into the affairs of l'Etats should there be a desire for change in direction or leadership independent of any different election timeframe of the Ziu.
