Temporary Federal Administration Clause
In the case of breakdown of the administrative structures of a State, the Federal Government may set up a Temporary Federal Administration in that State. This is to be declared by the Federal Government and countersigned by both chambers of the Federal Parliament. The T.F.A. must slate an Election for a State Constitutional Assembly within 6 months of its declaration, The State Constitutional Assembly has the duty to confirm, amend or rewrite the State constitution or to call for a Secession Referendum. If it is unable to come to any conclusion within one year of its election, the T.F.A. may devolve its powers to the underlaying level of territorial units. The T.F.A. ends when regular elections on the basis of the State constitution have led to the election of a new State Government.
The Parliament of the Federated Micronations consists of two chambers:
The Assembly and the Congress elect the Secretary of the Federation by relative majority in a joint session. The Secretary then proposes a Federal Government which has to receive an absolute majority in both chambers. All 5 States must be represented in the Government on the departemental leadership level.
The Supreme Court of the Federated Micronations (SCFM) is composed of two chambers of 11 Judges, half of which are drawn by lot each year from a pool consisting of 100 qualified Judges between one and two years from their lawful pensions age. The States nominate pool members according to the Federation Congress proportional key. The tenure of any Supreme Court Judge may not exceed more than 2 years. Cases are assigned to the chambers by lot if the chambers cannot come to an agreement. Both State Governments, Parliamentarians and Citizens may put a case towards the SCFM if they can conclusively claim that other legal options are not available any more.
The Joint Sovereign Forces of Musania (JSF) are tasked with the defense of the Federated Micronations. For this purpose, the States appoint selected units of their militaries as members of the JSF. The Divisions of the JSF must be composed of Brigades from different States. All other units of the States are tasked with Territorial Defense and are not available for Federal efforts. States may withdraw units from the JSF according to a defined procedure. The JSF also operate Strategic Forces.
The State Department of the Federated Micronations (SDFM) continues to be responsible for International and Intermicronational Relations.
