Hi all Aurorans, we really need to get things finished in Mending Wounds, and it's quite difficult to present ideas for the foundations of this union IC, because of a character bias opinion.

We NEED to get this done with. Can we discuss things here?

We need a charter everyone can agree on.

This is the proposal made by the Oan Isles, opinions?

Quote:
 
The organisation must be structured in the following way:
  • There must be a Council made up of equal representatives of each nation, that oversees the entire organisation, appointing its staff and managing its affairs.
  • There must be a Court that arbitrates disputes among governments, individuals, and multinational corporations from different nations.
  • There must be a Secretary General appointed by the Council to oversee the administration and staff of the organisation, who collectively belong to the Secretariat.


There must be a charter to recognise the basic rights of states, businesses and individuals.
  • There should be personal rights such as the right to life, free speech, thought, assembly, belief, work, study and movement, fair and equal treatment before the law, and privacy and property.
  • There should be trade rights such as the right to have intellectual and physical property respected, to operate, dispense services, employ people and have limited propriety insofar as the laws of the nation concerned allow.
  • There should be rights of states such as the right to free use of international waters, the right to maintain a standing armed forces, the right to regulate trade and migration.


The provisions by which this union is formed should encompass the following:
  • A commitment towards collaborating on military, law enforcement, economic, political, social and cultural issues within the limits of their resources and upon the popular will of their citizens.
  • A common respect for the territorial integrity and sovereign status of the nations, the rights of their citizens to deportation and dignified treatment, and the right of displaced people to amnesty, insofar as the laws of the nation concerned allow.

We first need to agree on a principle of the UNAC (United Nations of the Auroran Continent)

To work on (copy, paste and edit):

Principles of the UNAC

The UNAC is set up with the aim of ending the frequent and bloody wars between neighbours, which culminated in the Auroran-Pacific War.
The fundamental purposes of the United Nations of the Auroran Continent (UNAC) are to promote greater social, political and economic harmony among the nations of Aurora and surrounding territory*. The EU reasons that nations whose economies are interdependent are less likely to engage in conflict.
It is also responsible to enact legislation in justice and home affairs, and maintain common policies on trade, agriculture, fisheries, and regional development. It is responsible for defence.

(Excuse the fact most of this is copied from EU based wikipedia pages, and edited, it's easier)

Legislative function of the UNAC

Auroran Parliament

The Auroran Parliament (AP) is the directly elected parliamentary institution of the United Nations of the Auroran Continent (UNAC). Together with the Council of the Auroran Union (the Council) and the Auroran Commission, it exercises the legislative function of the UNAC.
Although the Auroran Parliament has legislative power that the Council and Commission do not possess, it does not formally possess legislative initiative, as most national parliaments of United Nations of the Auroran Continent member states do. The Parliament is the "first institution" of the UNAC, and shares equal legislative and budgetary powers with the Council (except in a few areas where the special legislative procedures apply). It likewise has equal control over the UNAC budget. Finally, the Auroran Commission, the executive body of the UNAC, is accountable to Parliament. In particular, Parliament elects the President of the Commission, and approves (or rejects) the appointment of the Commission as a whole. It can subsequently force the Commission as a body to resign by adopting a motion of censure.

Council of the UNAC

Essentially bicameral UNAC legislature (the other legislative body being the Auroran Parliament) and represents the executive governments of the UNAC's member states.
The primary purpose of the Council is to act as one of the two chambers of the UNAC's legislative branch, the other chamber being the Auroran Parliament. It also holds, jointly with the Parliament, the budgetary power of the Union and has greater control than the Parliament over the more intergovernmental areas of the UNAC, such as foreign policy and macroeconomic co-ordination.

OR (Jon's proposal)

The Auroran Council, charged with defining the United Nations of the Auroran Continent (UNAC) overall political direction and priorities, is the institution of the UNAC that comprises the heads of state or government of the member states, along with the President of the Auroran Council and the President of the Auroran Commission. The High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy also takes part in its meetings.

Auroran Commission

The Auroran Commission (AC) is an institution of the UNAC, responsible for proposing legislation, implementing decisions, upholding the UNAC treaties and managing the day-to-day business of the UNAC. Commissioners swear an oath at the Auroran Court of Justice in (?), pledging to respect the treaties and to be completely independent in carrying out their duties during their mandate.

The Commission operates as a cabinet government, with (?) members of the Commission (informally known as "commissioners"). There is one member per member state, but members are bound by their oath of office to represent the general interest of the UNAC as a whole rather than their home state. One of the (total number of member states) is the Commission President (currently (?)) proposed by the Council of the UNAC and elected by the Auroran Parliament. The Council of the UNAC then nominates the other (total number of member states minus one) members of the Commission in agreement with the nominated President, and the (total number of member states) members as a single body are then subject to a vote of approval by the Auroran Parliament.

Court of Justice of the UNAC

The Court of Justice of the UNAC (CJUNAC) is the institution of the United Nations of the Auroran Continent (UNAC) that encompasses the whole judiciary. Seated in (?), (?), it consists of two separate courts: the Court of Justice and the General Court. It has a sui generis court system, meaning "of its own kind", and a supranational institution.

CJUNAC is the chief judicial authority of the United Nations of the Auroran Continent and oversees the uniform application and interpretation of United Nations of the Auroran Continent law, in co-operation with the national judiciary of the member states. CJEU also resolves legal disputes between national governments and UNAC institutions, and may take action against UNAC institutions on behalf of individuals, companies or organisations whose rights have been infringed.

CJUNAC consists of two major courts:

  • the Court of Justice, informally known as Auroran Court of Justice (ACJ) which hears applications from national courts for preliminary rulings, annulment and appeals. It consists of one judge from each UNAC member country, as well as (?) advocates general.
  • the General Court, which hears applications for annulment from individuals, companies and, less commonly, national governments (focusing on competition law, state aid, trade, agriculture and trade marks). It is made up of (?) judges.


CJUNAC's specific mission is to ensure that "the law is observed" "in the interpretation and application" of the Treaties of the United Nations of the Auroran Continent. To achieve this, it:

  • reviews the legality of actions taken by the UNAC's institutions;
  • enforces compliance by member states with their obligations under the Treaties, and
  • interprets United Nations of the Auroran Continent law.

Auroran Central Bank

The Auroran Central Bank (ACB) is the central bank for the kirib and administers monetary policy of the kiribzone, which consists of (?) UNAC member states and is one of the largest currency areas in the world. It is one of the world's most important central banks and is one of the (?) institutions of the United Nations of the Auroran Continent (UNAC) listed in the Treaty on UNAC (TUNAC). The capital stock of the bank is owned by the central banks of all (total number of UNAC countries) UNAC member states. The Treaty of (?) established the bank in (?), and it is headquartered in (?), (?).

The primary objective of the ACB is to maintain price stability within the Kiribzone. Its basic tasks are to set and implement the monetary policy for the Kiribzone, to conduct foreign exchange operations, to take care of the foreign reserves of the Auroran System of Central Banks and operation of the financial market infrastructure under the TARGET2 payments system and the technical platform (currently being developed) for settlement of securities in Europe (TARGET2 Securities). The ACB has the exclusive right to authorise the issuance of kirib banknotes. Member states can issue kirib coins, but the amount must be authorised by the ACB beforehand.

The ACB is governed by Auroran law directly, but its set-up resembles that of a corporation in the sense that the ACB has shareholders and stock capital. Its capital is ♅(?) billion held by the national central banks of the member states as shareholders. The initial capital allocation key was determined in (?) on the basis of the states' population and GDP, but the capital key has been adjusted. Shares in the ACB are not transferable and cannot be used as collateral.

Court of Auditors

The Auroran Court of Auditors (ACA), despite its name, has no judicial powers. It ensures that taxpayer funds from the budget of the UNAC have been correctly spent. The court provides an audit report for each financial year to the Council and Parliament. The Parliament uses this to decide whether to approve the Commission's handling of the budget. The Court also gives opinions and proposals on financial legislation and anti-fraud actions.

The Court of Auditors was created as an independent institution due to the sensitivity of the issue of fraud in the Union (the anti-fraud agency is also built on its independence). It is composed of one member from each state appointed by the Council every six years. Every three years one of them is elected as the president of the court.

Opinions, thoughts? I suggest all that I've put forward be written up as a final charter. Need the other additions at a later date.

I don't particularly like the EU in the context of Urth and the way it's put together this is for one reason: the equality of sovereign nations. Real power should lie with the nations and those who rule them, not supranational institutions. Such bodies limit the scope of RP. I firmly believe that a less rigid arrangement should exist I.e.:
1) the Parliament must be a mere consultative and representative body with no power to make laws or decisions.
2) the Council must wield all power over the management and operations of the organisation and its assets.
3) The Court's role must be limited to giving legal opinions and recommendations rather than firm rulings.

These are the points that the Oan have been pushing for. While the EU seems nice, I disagree.

I agree with you, it's a burden on what you can actually do, and an EU for the UK urth would be appalling because realistically the UK is about the same size as all other countries in the UNAC and it would be bound to a position where it would have far, far less power than it would out of the institution.

This is a little out of the blue, but I personally want to establish an EU-like supranational union because I don't have to RP with my well-off nations as often. Having it so that the UNAC determines what Tuvaltastan and Tivot do in the world makes it so that I can RP with other nations like Baykalia, Lapimuhyo, Imperial Fandom, etc. I'll have more time to work on Lapimuhyo's culture, and Baykalia's descent into fascism, and Kostromastan's eventual split into two nations. I can finally get to Rijelv's unfinished expansion rp they started a long time back. I want this Auroran union to be finally completed so I can move on to other nations to RP with, idk about anyone else tho
