Icon - Congress.jpg Government Structure

The Australian Government is divided into three branches, the executive, the legislative and the judicial.

Icon position politics president 32.gif The Executive

The executive is in charge of the day to day running of the country.

The executive branch of the government is vested in the office of the prime minister, who is duly voted by the people of Australia. It consists of the Prime Minister and their appointed Cabinet members.

Prime Minister

The Prime Minister of Australia is elected on the fifth day of every month by the citizens of Australia. However, due to Australia's history of being wiped out and Political Takeovers, there has been occasions when the Prime Minister was elected by the community on the forum.

The Prime Minister is the head of state, head of government, the chief diplomat of Australia, and the commander in chief of the various government-owned armed forces.

Cabinet

Each term, the Prime Minister of Australia selects politicians to assist him in the day-to-day running of the country. The Cabinet Ministers are the Prime Minister's advisors and also manage their respective departments through the Australian government. The Prime Minister has the full power to appoint or remove any Minister or Department at any time.

The Legislative Branch of the government consists of the Senate, which operates through the Congress implemented through the eRepublik system. Senators are elected on the twenty-fifth of each month. The entirety of Senate operations are conducted through the Australian forums. A Speaker is elected out of each newly elected Senate who operates as the moderator of debates and the manager of bills and voting.

The Senate shall have the power to allocate and create monies, set tax rates, pass the citizen fee, declare war on another nation, pass a proposed alliance, shall impeach the Prime Minister when it is called for, and provide citizenship when the Executive Branch approves.

The Senate shall have the power to impeach the Prime Minister when the following criteria have been met; there must be an official hearing to impeach the Prime Minister that shall take 2 days to debate and 1 day to vote on impeachment, a 66% vote must be held in order to impeach. Impeachment may be charged with the following criteria: high crimes against the nation, stealing, perjury, abuse of powers, inadequacy in his ability to govern, a lack of confidence by the Senate, inactivity or a ⅔ referendum by the people.

Icon position politics partypresident 32.gif The Judicial

Main article: Inspector General

The Judicial consists of the Inspector General.

The Inspector General is elected two days after each Prime Minister election. Because of the level of security of the position, incumbents must be Senators or Order of Australia recipients and their nomination must be seconded by another Senator and only a majority vote may elect an Inspector General.

The Inspector General's main duties are to watch the Senate and Cabinet sections of the forums, and ensuring that no office holder is breaking any of the laws. If they do suspect anything, they may call for an investigation, which could lead to that office holder's loss of forum privileges and department privileges.

The OA Survival Plan was approved by the Senate on February 3, 2009. In the plan, all recipients of the Order of Australia, who are inactive citizens, will be prevented from dying by the NBA buying Q1 food and donating it to their account to keep their wellness up.

The logic for such a plan is that:

  • All OA's are likely to be high in exp. points/stats, so it keeps them alive and keeps our ranking up.
  • It's a golden retirement, and serves as a testament to their hard work, that they do not die. Also, it provides our newer citizens a dream of one day being eligible, and kept 'alive' in a dignified, immortal state.

However, as eRepublik mechanics changed, the Survival Plan was no longer possible and was scrapped.

New Player Society

The New Player Society is in place to better introduce and integrate new players into the Australian community. There is a mentoring program in place where mentors will contact new players (mentees) and introduce them to various aspects of the game, and explain any questions new players may have on discovering the world of eRepublik.

The mentors will aim to introduce players to the forums and the IRC where many other players congregate and discuss a range of topics relating to both in and out of game. This way, new players will find friends and forge bonds of comradeship, encouraging teamwork which is vital for the wellbeing of Australia.
