Policies by the Government and Opposition Edit

In April 4668, the government passes its Military and Judicial reforms as well as their Economic policy bill.

In the same military reforms, it has been decided that all adults upon completion of schooling must serve a term in the military or a lesser paid term of civilian national service and that homosexuals have been given the right to serve in the military, but that open homosexuality is not tolerated, with a "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
The Economic Policy that were implemented meant that all telephone lines were to be provided free of charge to all citizens, the reason for this by the government was to give the people a reward for their service towards the society.
The Judicial Reforms made sure that criminals who have been released from jail were allowed to vote and that the law would not limit the power of the government to pursue extradition treaties.
In January 4669, the law repealing the ultraconservative HLC reform passed. Legalising alcohol, tobacco, adultery, prostitution and freedom of religion.
In February 4669, the government's Civil Liberties bill passes, which removes the capital punishment and prosecution from adultery, while maintaining its illegal status. The Religious reforms of the cabinet also passes, resulting in the downscale of the punishment of public blasphemy as well as removing prosecution against private blasphemy, in the same reforms, teacher-led prayers are encouraged instead of a mandatory policy. The cabinet successfully passes the Infrastructural Reforms, which gives the government the right to involve themselves in the operations of airports, alongside the private sector, the state also is given the right to maintain a national TOC, alongside private TOCs, in the infrastructural reforms, public transport is now partially subsidized with the remainder "user-pays", instead of it fully subsidized by the government. The cabinets Ecology policy and the Foreign policy does not however pass, because of an unexplained reason of voting no by the Justice Party of Luthori.
New Institutions Edit
The Imperial Citizens Party started working on the 'Declaration of the Powers of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Act', which formalized the powers the Ministry of Internal Affairs were able to have. With this declaration, the party also presented the 'Formation of the Imperial Security Department Act' which created and formalized the nations main intelligence agency, in to the Imperial Security Department (ISD). The ISD fell under the authority of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, but to make sure that no powers were abused, the Imperial Citizens Party presented the 'Formation of the CONSEPS Act', which seek to create a new agency, known as the Commission of National Security and Preservation of the State under the shared-control of the Ministries of Internal Affair and Defence and the Imperial Diet.
