Public Law 1: Foreign Affairs Act

Purpose: To regulate foreign affairs within the Union.

Author(s): Sir Salibaic

Article I: Delegation of Powers

1. All matters concerning foreign affairs, including the maintenance and establishment of diplomatic relations and negotiated diplomatic settlements and treaties, shall be primarily reserved to the Federal Government of the Union.

2. States may establish their own executive departments related to foreign affairs with the power to maintain and establish diplomatic relations, subject to federal oversight.

Article II: Federal Oversight

1. State foreign affairs departments shall be required to send a detailed written report to the relevant federal minister alongside the Prime Minister and Founder.

12
I would like to present the following article of the RGBN for review due to its possible unconstitutionality. It enforces that a single nation must be World Assembly Delegate with no required consent. This would violate the Rights of Citizens as it states: "No citizen shall be forced into military or government service without their clear consent."


Quote
Article I: Suter
1. Suter is to be defined as the nation of Suter.
2. Suter is to be the on site World Assembly Delegate of RGBN.
