    League of Worlds rules and organization

    Articles of the League of Worlds

    Supreme Authority of the League
    The League is composed of many individual empires, each with their own local laws and customs. Laws passed by the League are similar to the old UN resolutions in that they are stern suggestions, not “laws” in the full legal sense. Likewise, all members must acknowledge the authority of the League and its organs as the final arbiters of disputes or other conflicts, however the decisions do not need to be followed.

    Unified Standards
    The League establishes a number of standards for use by all member empires. This includes a calendar, a currency, and a timekeeping system. All members must accept and use these standards when dealing with the League and other members. They are free to use other standards locally, but these standards never take precedence over those established by the League.

    Ban on Targeting Civilian Populations
    The League bans the targeting of civilian populations in attacks by one empire against another. This includes all forms of attacks, from weapons of mass destruction to artillery strikes to terrorist attacks. The League tends to look the other way when small amounts of civilians get killed, but blowing up civilian structures that are still occupied is dealt with harshly. Indiscriminate destruction of a planet's non-combatant population and/or ecosystem is a violation of this ban. While the League generally prefers a laissez-faire approach to most matters, the abuse of this article is always dealt with swiftly.

    Ban on Weapons of Mass Destruction
    The Assembly bans the use of all weapons of mass destruction (radiological, nuclear, biological and chemical weapons), on planets and other celestial bodies, and deals harshly with any member or group that attempts to use such weapons on celestial bodies.

    Equality before the Law
    Every citizen of the League is held accountable for his actions. In addition, every citizen possesses sovereign rights that are guaranteed by the League. This area is very vague despite the Convention on Sentient Rights, and some regions do not give their citizens any rights, while others try to give them all rights possible.

    No Slavery
    Any creature deemed to be sapient, however primitive, is considered protected under the League and possessed of the full rights pertaining thereto. Chattel slavery is thus strictly forbidden by the Assembly and anyone who attempts to flout this law is usually treated very harshly.

    The League of Worlds
    Chief among the governmental organs established by the League is the legislature known as the League of Worlds, whose representatives are chosen by members at regular intervals. Each member has 1 representative in the LoW.

    First Secretary
    Head of the LoW, whom is selected by his peers to run the administration of the League, cast the tie-breaking vote when needed, and elected every 5 Earth years. Though there is no rule about it, every First Secretary has come from the Sol Federation.
