The Daishun Republic (pronounced [daɪ.ʃuːn riˈpʌb.lɪk]) is a republic located on the Southern portion of the Selatan continent. It also encompasses the Shilaquega Autonomous Region in the north.
The country's name in Chinese is Chunguo (春国), meaning "Land of Spring." The name was inspired by the country's famous Sakura trees, whose flowers are ubiquitous in the spring. The formal name of the country in Chinese is Dachun Minguo (大春民国), literally meaning "the Great Spring Republic." The name Daishun is derived from the Sino-Japanese Daishun Minkoku (i.e. the Japanese pronunciation of Dachun Minguo). The French name of the Daishun Republic is spelled République Daïchune. In American English "Daishun Republic" should be pronounced [daɪ.ʃuːn riˈpʌb.lɪk].
The Daishun Republic has a semi-presidential system. The government of the Daishun Republic is divided into six institutions known as the courts: the National Legislative Court, the People's Legislative Court, the Administrative Court, the Diplomatic Court, the Judicial Court, and the Procedural Court.
National Assembly Edit
The National Assembly (Chinese: 国会, guóhuì; Japanese: 国会, kokkai; French: Assemblée nationale) is the legislature of the Daishun Republic. It consists of two parts: the Senate, which forms the National Legislative Court, and the Tribunate, which forms the People's Legislative Court. These courts may convene together as a unicameral legislature or separately as two houses of a bicameral legislature. Each of the houses is further divided into councils, which focus on specific matters; e.g. the Economic Council can only pass legislation related to the economy, etc. Each house also has a core council that is always in session and can call other councils into session or dissolve them.
National Legislative Court Edit
The National Legislative Court (Chinese: 国治院, guózhìyuàn; Japanese: 国治院, kuniharu-in; French: Cour législatif national), also known as the Senate (French: Sénat), is the upper legislative house of the National Assembly. Members of the Senate are not elected; rather, they are appointed by regional governments or by other courts. The core council for the Senate is the State Council. The composition of the Senate is as follows: three members appointed by the Chancellor and the Prime Minister, two members appointed by each regional government, two members appointed by the governing party and the opposition party, one member appointed by each third party with seats in the Tribunate, one non-voting member appointed by designated universities and NGOs. In order to be appointed to the Senate, one must have a university degree or pass a test written by the Procedural Court.
People's Legislative Court Edit
The People's Legislative Court (Chinese: 民治院, mínzhìyuàn; Japanese: 民治院, tamiji-in; French: Cour législatif populaire), also known as the Tribunate (French: Tribunat) is the lower legislative house of the National Assembly. Members of the tribunate are known as deputies. Deputies to the Tribunate are elected by popular vote. The core council for the Tribunate is the Representative Council, each member representing one of many constituencies of approximately equal population into which the country is divided.
The Daishun Republic, in actuality, has two cabinets, and in Daishun politics the word administration refers to both cabinets collectively. The administration consists of the State Court and the Administrative Court.
Administrative Court Edit
The Administrative Court (Chinese: 行政院, xíngzhèngyuàn; Japanese: 行政院, gyōsei-in; French: Cour administratif), commonly known as the Government, consists of administration members, known as ministers, who are in charge of the internal affairs of the country. The head of the administrative court is the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister is appointed by the National Assembly, and the other ministers of the Administrative Court are appointed by the prime minister and approved by the National Assembly. All ministers are members of the National Assembly. When a Senator or Deputy becomes a Government minister, she or he ceases to represent her or his constitutency or the body that appointed her or him, and a new Senator or Deputy is selected to replace the Government minister. The Prime Minister is the head of government of the Daishun Republic.
State Court Edit
The State Court (Chinese: 外交院, wàijiāoyuàn; Japanese: 外交院, gaikō-in; French: Cour de l'état), commonly known as the State, consists of ministers in charge of representing the country in foreign affairs as well as regulating the country's national identity and heritage. The head of the diplomatic court is the Chancellor. The chancellor is elected by the Daishun citizenry. The other State ministers are appointed by the Chancellor. These State ministers The chancellor is the head of state of the Daishun Republic.
Administrative Divisions Edit
The Daishun Republic is divided into six regions: Bord-de-la-Nouvelle-Seine (French: Bank of the New Seine), Guangdong (Chinese: Grand East), Île-du-Printemps (Island of Spring), Kansai (Japanese: West of the Border, i.e. the border with Ashura-Chana), Northeast, and Wanlitian (Chinese: Myriad Kilometer Fields).
The current currency of the Daishun Republic is the Daishun franc or tael. The first Daishunese currency was the Daishunese tael, but sometime later coins and banknotes in denominations of francs, valued at 100 francs = 1 tael, came into circulation to emphasize the fiat nature of the currency, as "tael" implies a currency backed by silver. However, the tael remains a legitimate and acceptable name for the currency, and many prices are still expressed in taels. Generally, Chinese speakers express prices in taels, while Japanese speakers and French speakers express prices in francs. At purchasing power parity, one tael is approximately equal in value to one international dollar.
The Daishun Republic follows the basic economic ideology of socialism with Chinese characteristics, pioneered by Deng Xiaoping in the People's Republic of China. There is a free market in the country, but the public sector comprises a substantial portion of the market, with its revenues going directly to the government. This results in lower taxes and reduces the risk of government deficit spending.
The National Bank of the Daishun Republic is the central bank of the Daishun Republic. The National Bank has the sole authority to issue currency; the Chunjing National Mint and the New Marseilles National Mint, which print banknotes and strike coins, are subsidiary organizations of the National Bank. The National Bank is controlled by an executive board led by a chief executive. The executive board members are appointed by the prime minister and approved by the National Assembly Economic Council. The National Bank enacts monetary policy either independently or on advice of the National Assembly.
