Chapter II. States of Emergency

  1. Should there exist a threat to the continuity of the State, the Monarch or Senate may declare a state of emergency under the terms of this act. A threat to the continuity of the State exists when:

    3. The Monarch or Regent of Carcassonne has been inactive for 14 or more days.
  2. Should the Senate be unable to establish contact with the Monarch of Carcassonne, the Senate may declare a state of emergency by a minimum 2/3 (rounded up) majority of its total membership under the terms of this act if either:

    1. The Monarch is subject to forced abdication following a vote of the Senate and has not communicated with the Senate in 4 days;
    2. Or the Monarch has forfeited the office of World Assembly Delegate without the advice and consent of the Senate and has not communicated with the Senate in 48 hours
  3. Upon the declaration of a state of emergency, the Monarch or Senate will inform all residents of Carcassonne via telegram that legitimate directives and laws will only originate on the regional Discord or forums.

  4. During a state of emergency, the Monarch and Senate shall be authorized to take any and all actions necessary to restore regional security, including:

    1. Ejecting or banning nations endorsing a hostile nation;
    2. Ejecting or nations not endorsing the Monarch, senators or other designated friendly nations;
    3. Establishing a regional password; and
    4. Seeking a liberation or injunction from the World Assembly Security Council without the approval of the Ecclesia.
  5. During a State of Emergency, the Monarch and Senate shall not voluntarily move their nations out of Carcassonne, except temporarily in the course of opposing occupying forces.

  6. During a state of emergency, the government of Carcassonne shall:

    1. Approach regional allies for assistance;
    2. Inform citizens and allies of the legitimate line of succession;
    3. If ejected, establish a government-in-exile in a new region; and
    4. Undertake whatever other actions are required to oppose occupying forces.
  7. Should there no longer exist a threat to the continuity of the State, or should the Government of Carcassonne be reconstituted elsewhere, the Monarch and Senate may declare that the current state of emergency has ended. Should the Monarch or Senate make no such declaration, the current state of emergency shall instead end after seven (7) days unless a new threat to the existence of the State appears in which case it may be re-declared.

  8. After the state of emergency has ended, all laws present before the state of emergency was declared shall again come into full effect.
