    In a vote of 7:0, Parliament has resolved to elaborate and clarify of the current government system with the help of cabinet as follows.

    Elaboration and Clarification of the current government system - Separation of Powers
    Executive Branch
    • The Executive branch, consisting of cabinet and government departments, administers and enforces the law respectively, as written by the legislature and interpreted by the judiciary.
    • The Cabinet consists of all Ministers who collectively run all government departments and influence government policy which includes, but is not limited to: changes to jobs, new settlements such as towns and cities, Capital city expansion, prices of government shops, events.
    • Cabinet also oversees everything owned by the Government including government cities, plots, apartments, and buildings, as well as the management of the Government balance.
    • Cabinet is responsible for changes (not law) in economic systems, transportation systems, and town/city systems. Cabinet has the ability to create and remove add-ons and full on systems relating to that as well.
    Legislative Branch
    • The legislative branch, consisting of the popularly elected Parliament, represents the will of the people, debates and legislates law, and scrutinizes laws and the executive.
    • Responsible for the creation, as well as the modification and removal of all server laws.
    • Parliament can also change rules in addition to laws, but only rules that affect group or groups that the government has oversight of.
    • Responsible for government changes.
      • Parliament has the ability to change the Constitution (albeit unwritten) and thus change the government system in any way, shape or form, including the changes within the government departments, their powers and positions in them. These changes, however, need to be signed by the Prime Minister just like any new legislation act. These would not be considered as simple law changes, and thus the Parliament would not be able to override the Prime Minister's veto.
      • Parliament has the ability to introduce new departments.
      • Parliament can approve or reject players nominated by the Prime Minister for Ministerial and Judicial positions. Parliament also has the power to dismiss incumbent Ministers and Judges by a vote of no confidence.
      • Parliament can override an Executive Order (EO) made by the Prime Minister with 5 votes.
      • Parliament can override a veto of a law change with a unanimous vote, only if the vetoed law is a simple law change (e.g. changes to punishments to PvP laws)
      • Parliament can check and approve government spending
      • Parliament cannot override a veto of a Government change.
      • Parliament cannot give themselves power over the Executive branch nor can they take power away.
    Credit to Kat for creating the original document. Necessary parts changed by other Ministers.
