Our regional legislature - IDUSA. [Out-Of-Character]
This thread is the Office of Membership Administration for the International Democratic Union States' Assembly. All members of the IDU are welcome to apply for IDUSA membership in this thread.
What is the IDUSA?
The IDUSA is the formal legislative arm of the IDU government. It is responsible for passing legislation that affects the region, electing the delegate, and approving of the delegate's government. The IDU places a premium on democratic engagement and encourages all IDU members to participate.
The Speaker of the IDUSA is responsible for presiding over all sessions of the IDUSA. The speaker is responsible for placing items at vote and for admitting candidates into the IDUSA. The speaker shall be responsible for maintaining the list of IDUSA members.
A Member of the IDUSA is responsible for voting on legislation, electing the delegate, and can veto any member of the delegate's government with a majority vote. The delegate also serves at the confidence of the IDUSA and members may choose to declare no confidence in the delegate with a majority vote, in which case a new election will be held immediately. All members of the IDU are not only permitted but are encouraged to participate in the IDUSA.

Simply state your intention to participate and you will be added to the roster of active members. Once the IDUSA is functioning, it can expand upon the admissions process in a way that is consistent with the regional charter.Cagontia wrote:How do we apply?
You've all been added to the roster. Sciongrad also intends to participate, but I will abstain from voting while I am delegate. While I'm sure more players intend on joining, the IDUSA meets its constitutionally prescribed quorum. I will create a thread to elect a speaker, and from that point on, the speaker will be responsible for managing the IDUSA. After the speaker is elected, they will also manage the roster and can get the ball rolling on electoral legislation so we can get this delegate election underway.
The Free Stuff can also be considered to have joined, given that it was just elected Speaker. If Comhar and Novum Lux are considered to have joined, that means that the IDUSA has 12 members.
