Membership

The Maredoratic League is a regional organization based in Maredoratica which seeks to maintain the sovereign status of Maredoratic states and the security of the region as a whole. Nations of all political and economic affiliations are permitted to join and one of the League's main goals is to promote, if not friendly, favorable relations between member states regardless of differences in politics.

History

Organization

The ML consists of four main bodies, with differing duties and responsibilities. The Maredoratic League is headquartered in Luxembourg, which, though legally part of the Grand Duchy of Van Luxemburg, is considered international territory in certain respects for the duration of ML General Assembly meetings. In all other cases, only the grounds of the ML complex are considered international territory.

General Assembly

The General Assembly, consisting varying numbers of representatives from each ML nation, functions as the League's primary deliberative body in addition to an open forum in which national leaders can address the whole of the ML. The General Assembly is responsible furthermore for suggesting and passing through simple majority pieces of legislation considered "non-binding", in that member-states are encouraged but not required to implement them. The Assembly holds the power to suggest locations for peacekeeping forces to be deployed through simple majority – the suggestion then passes to the League's second body, the League Council.

Each nation represented in the Maredoratic League is allowed at least three representatives, but exact numbers are dependent on the state's population. For every five million citizens, the member-state is allowed one additional voting representative in the General Assembly, with observers permitted to the point where they do not interrupt proceedings. These representatives are expected to be voted on by the entirety of the member-state's citizenry, so they can adequately represent the interests of the general populace. In practice, some member states directly appoint their representatives, or derive a mixed system of election and appointments.

The General Assembly is the body responsible for various "day-to-day" responsibilities of the ML. These responsibilities include honoring various individuals and issuing condemnations for actions, suspension and expulsion of members, and budgetary matters. The primary roll of the General Assembly is in overseeing the various League institutions; it has the authority to set their agenda by outlining the direction and principles of said institutions, granting them funding, and confirming or vetoing nominees for their Director-General positions.

League Council

The Council has the power to suggest and pass "binding" legislation. Binding legislation must be implemented in all Maredoratic League member-states lest they risk expulsion from the League. Because the Council has the sole power to pass such legislation, it is composed of the heads of state (or government) for each member-state to ensure that the national governments of constituent states are in support. The Council may only involve itself in matters of international importance, including but not limited to: genocide and crimes against humanity, human trafficking, regional development, and trade.

The League Council reserves a number of rights not available to the General Assembly, in addition to the power to pass binding legislation. The Council is responsible for sanctioning peacekeeping missions once they pass through the General Assembly, and only the Council can establish or dissolve constituent organizations. The Council can, by simple majority vote, expel, sanction, or censure a member state, block a candidate state from joining, or authorize peacekeeping missions.

Office of Peacekeeping and Regional Development

The Office of Peacekeeping and Regional Development (OPRD) has jurisdiction over matters of regional security. This power extends solely to the management of peacekeepers once deployed, and the filing of requests from member-states for personnel. The OPRD does not have the power to sanction a peacekeeping action, that power resting solely with the General Assembly and Council. The OPRD furthermore is responsible for subsequent rebuilding of nations where peacekeepers have been deployed, and operates on a mix of volunteer funding from member-states, individual donations, and taxes levied from the membership base.

Maredoratic International Criminal Court

The final organ of the ML, the Maredoratic International Criminal Court (MICC), is the body responsible for prosecution and subsequent sentencing of criminals considered by the court to have committed gross abuses of human rights. Though it requires the initial consent of the League Council and General Assembly to pursue an investigation, the MICC operates under its own auspices once the investigation is underway. Sentencing is the responsibility of a panel of judges in a tribunal; these judges are selected at random from a pool of available ML-salaried individuals. Their identities are not known prior to the beginning of the trial.

The General Assembly is responsible for approving the start of investigations, though the League Council may overturn this power with a majority vote. Once an investigation is underway, it is the duty of the Office of the Prosecutor to gather evidence and bring the case to trial; it is the responsibility of the law enforcement agencies of Maredoratic member-states to apprehend (if necessary) the accused and physically bring him or her to trial.

The panel of ten judges may not contain more than one judge from any one nation, and may not have their identities as future judges compromised. If they are, they may be replaced, with another judge chosen randomly. The accused is always represented by a legal counsel of their choosing, and the MICC itself has one of the most extensive lists of due process guarantees in Maredoratica.

Office of Island Affairs

The Office of Island Affairs (OIA) is the body responsible for the oversight and, in the cases of some islands which had no preexisting indigenous population, administration, of the Trust Territory of the Coventic Islands, which comprises several small island groups in the Coventic Ocean. Under the Liése Treaty on the Coventic Islands the Maredoratic League is responsible for guaranteeing the peace and security of the trust territory and preventing "damage to the indigenous peoples and natural landscapes and environs of the islands outlined as falling within the Trust Territory".

Institutions

Maredoratic League constituent institutions are specialized intergovernmental organizations fulfilling specific mandates, which are either granted to them by ML charters, or, in the case of certain precursor organizations which are considered to have been subsumed into the Maredoratic League system (but which may have full members which are not full Maredoratic League members; for example, the Maredoratic Commission for Air Navigation), by separate preexisting treaty.

Maredoratic League institutions operate as a sort of intergovernmental civil service within the legislation of the Maredoratic League General Assembly, which oversees their operations. The Directors-General of the organizations may be nominated by any individual member of the General Assembly and approved or blocked by a simple majority vote in the GA.
