RE: Imperial Decrees
Decree Concerning Titles of Nobility

Nobles will be required to list all their titles of nobility in their on-site signature. This holds two reasons; first is that it will show all the titles of each individual for recognition purposes, second is that it will vainly allow nobles to show off their holdings.

Furthermore, when nobles are announced into a room all their titles will be said aloud unless otherwise directed by the Emperor. Also, nobles will have all their titles listed when they have their name written out on official government or legal documents.

RE: Imperial Decrees
Decree Concerning Orders in Council

The Imperial Council, through the Office of the Prime Minister, will be permitted to issue Orders in Council. These orders will hold the full weight of law. Orders in Council will be considered like Imperial Decrees for legal and constitutional purposes. Imperial Assent will be required for all Orders in Council; this has the effect of making Orders in Council Imperial Decrees in all but name. The consent of a plurality of the Imperial Council will be required to pass an Order in Council. Voting will be made by Ministry so if, for example, an individual is minister of two different ministries they will have two votes. Once passed through the Imperial Council the Order in Council will be presented to the Emperor for final approval.

Decree Concerning Paramilitary Groups

All organizations that are paramilitary in nature will be considered illegal. Paramilitary will be defined as a military-esque force whose function and organization are similar to those of a professional military, but which is not considered part of a state's formal armed forces. Furthermore, any political party that, either directly or indirectly, supports a paramilitary group will be immediately disbanded. Creating, joining, aiding, funding, or in any way supporting a paramilitary group will be considered illegal as a terrorist activity.
