HISTORY


The Neridian Herald was the first newspaper in Neridia after the founding of Redquill. It was founded by Jean Duvariel, an Alexandrian immigrant from Crecy, Ibelin that moved to Shireroth when he heard about the colonization of Neridia. Having purchased several shares of the Neridian Company after notices by the Comital Government of Ransenar spread through Micras, he moved to Neridia with his four sons (Jean Jr., Liam, Joseph, Theodore) and two daughters (Marina and Elizbeta) and Elw wife, Edith after winning 20 million Alexandrian ecus in the Ibeliner Lottery. Having served as the Editor-in-Chief of several local publications in Ibelin, he started the Neridian Journal with his lottery winnings.

Setting up shop mere blocks away from Highwell Palace, on the lower section of Redquill Square, it occupies a coveted spot on what is now one of the busiest and most trafficked streets of the city - Yastreb Street. While in one of his daily strolls through the capital, the Prince walked past the Neridian Herald building. Having been completed recently, one of its sides, not having many windows on one side was set up to serve as the Highwell Palace Notice Board on order of the Prince, providing just compensation to the Neridian Herald in the form of a special exemption from the property tax and monthly rents. Preferring instead to serve the Prince and the people of Neridia for free, at the end of every year Duvariel personally walks a check to Highwell Palace, returning the money to the public coffers. This tradition, despite having been interrupted by the dissolution of Neridia by Shireroth and the ensuing crisis, was later restored.

After the collapse of the United Neridian Principality that threw the nascent colony into the dark grip of the Green, the city of Redquill suffered several attacks from marauding hordes that looted much of its initial riches. The headquarters of the Neridian Herald were not spared, and Jean Duvariel was killed during one of the many occurrences of looting in the chaotic city.

The Duvariel family grabbed all their belongings and followed the Eadrics, along with hundreds of thousands of Neridians and natives to Port St. Andre. Led by Jean Jr. (affectionately called "JJ"), the St. Andre News Corporation was created with investment from Neridian and Andrino sources. Soon the Duvariels secured small newspapers in the then separate Natopian demesne of Thalassa in partnership with the leader it shared with St. Andre, Benjamin Meir.

Upon the Natopian reclaim of the former Neridian homelands, the Duvariel family returned to what was left of Redquill to rebuild. Receiving once more the blessing of the restored Prince Janus, the Union Herald was born, reclaiming the former buildings and facilities of the former Neridian Herald.

AN ACT to provide for laws, their effects, and general rules for their application.


BE IT ENACTED by the Prince's Most Serene Highness, by and with the advice and consent of the Grand Council of Electors presently assembled in Redquill, and by the authority of the same, as follows: —

Chapter I. Title.
This Act shall be known as the "Law Effects and General Rules of Application Act, 2017".

Chapter II. Ignorance of the law.
Ignorance of the law does not excuse from compliance therewith.

Chapter III. Retroactive effect.
a.) Laws shall not have a retroactive effect unless it is so expressed.
b.) In no case shall the retroactive effect of a law operate to the prejudice of rights acquired under previous legislative action.

Chapter IV. Acts contrary to law; renunciation of legal right.
a.) Acts executed contrary to the provisions of the law are void except when the law preserves their validity.
b.) Rights granted by the laws may be renounced, provided such renunciation be not contrary to law, to the public interest or public order, or prejudicial to the interest of a third person.

Chapter V. Repeal of laws.
a.) Laws shall only be repealed by means of subsequent laws; and disuse, custom or practice to the contrary shall not impede their enforcement.
b.) Laws may be repealed either entirely or in part by other laws.

Chapter VI. Express or implied repeal; repeal of repealing an act.
A repeal is either express or implied. It is express when it is literally declared by a subsequent law; it is implied when the new law contains provision either contrary to or irreconcilable with those of the former law. The repeal of a repealing act does not revive the act repealed.

Chapter VII. Refusal of the court to render a decision; application of equity in absence of statute.
a.) Any court in the Most Serene Union which shall refuse to render a decision on the pretext of silence, obscurity or unintelligibility of the laws, or for any other reason, shall be held liable therefore.
b.) When there is no statute applicable to the case at issue, the court shall decide in accordance with equity, which means that natural justice, as embodied in the general principles of jurisprudence and in accepted and established usages and customs of the Most Serene Union only, shall be taken into consideration.

Chapter VIII. Law governing family rights and status of persons.
The laws relating to family rights and obligations, or to the status, condition and legal capacity of persons, shall be binding upon the residents of the Most Serene Union, even if they may reside in a foreign country.

Chapter IX. Law governing personal and real property.

Chapter X. Deficiencies in special laws.
In matters which are the subject of special laws, any deficiency in such laws shall be supplied by the provisions of this Act.

Chapter XI. Letter of law observed if free from ambiguity.
When a law is clear and free from all ambiguity, the letter of the same shall not be disregarded, under the pretext of fulfilling the spirit thereof.

Chapter XII. General and popular use of words.
The words of a law shall generally be understood in their most usual definition, taking into consideration, not so much the exact grammatical rules governing the same, as their general and popular use.

Chapter XIII. Technical terms and phrases.
Technical terms and phrases used in the arts and sciences shall be interpreted according to their received meaning and acceptation with the experts and authorities in the science, art or profession to which they refer.

Chapter XIV. Dubious words.
When the words of a law are dubious, their meaning should be sought by examining and comparing the obscure expressions with other related words and sentences in an orderly manner, in order to ascertain their true meaning.

Chapter XV. Laws referring to the same matter.
Laws which refer to the same matter, or whose object is the same, shall be interpreted with reference to each other, in order that what is clear in one may be employed for the purpose of explaining what is doubtful in another.

Chapter XVI. Reason, spirit, and motives of law.
The most effectual and universal manner of discovering the true meaning of a law, when its expressions are dubious, is by considering the reason and spirit thereof, or the cause or motives which induced its enactment.

Chapter XVII. Laws declaring acts void.
When, in order to prevent fraud or from other motives of public utility, the law declares certain acts void, its provisions shall not be dispensed with or left unperformed on the ground that the particular act in question has been proved not to be fraudulent or contrary to the public good.

Chapter XVIII. Distinction of laws as odious or favorable.
The distinction of laws into odious or favorable with a view of limiting or extending their provisions, shall not be made by those whose duty it is to interpret them.

The Constitutional Compact of the Most Serene Union and the Laws of the Most Serene Union which shall be made in pursuance thereof or which shall be made under the authority of the Most Serene Union shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every part of the Most Serene Union shall be bound thereby, anything in the Compact or laws, customs or traditions of any County or Duchy to the contrary notwithstanding.

Chapter XX. The Most Serene Union defined.
The expression "Most Serene Union" shall be held to comprehend, for all purposes, the Union of demesnes composed of Thalassa, Neridia, Istvanistan and St. Andre and all their lands, possessions and occupied territories.

Chapter XXI. Definition of the word "laws".
a.) For the purposes of this Act, a law shall be defined as a rule of conduct or action prescribed or formally recognized as binding or enforced by the government of the Most Serene Union, including Princely Decrees.

Chapter XXII. General Provisions.
This Act comes into force on the day it is granted Princely Assent.

SUCCESSION TO THE THRONE OF THE MOST SERENE UNION BILL 2017
A BILL to Regulate the Succession to the Serene Throne of the Most Serene Union of Neridia, Thalassa and St. Andre.


BE IT ENACTED by the Prince's Most Serene Highness, by and with the advice and consent of the Grand Council of Electors presently assembled in Redquill, and by the authority of the same, as follows: —

Chapter I. Title.

This Bill may be cited for all purposes as “The Succession to the Throne of the Most Serene Union Bill, 2017.”

Chapter II. Duration of the Reign of the Prince.
The reign of the Prince is hereby declared to persist for the duration of his or her natural life, unless and until he or she shall, of their own free will, put their hand to an instrument of abdication, or be removed due to permanent incapacitation, according to the prescriptions of the law.

Chapter III. Nature of the Succession.
a. Succession to the Throne of the Most Serene Union of Thalassa, Neridia, and St. Andre is hereby declared to be ordinarily appointive, and extraordinarily elective, in nature.

b. Succession to the Throne of the Most Serene Union of Thalassa, Neridia, and St. Andre is not to be determined by heredity in any respect.

c. The task of the appointment of an heir-apparent to the Throne of the Most Serene Union of Thalassa, Neridia, and St. Andre belongs to the Prince, alone, during the course of their lawful reign.

d. The task of the election of a new Sovereign when there is no heir-apparent belongs to the Grand Council of Electors, and by means of such internal procedures for the fulfillment of the same as may be devised by either at the time.

Chapter IV. Appointment of an Heir-Apparent to the Throne by the Prince.
a. The Grand Council of Electors, as a body, shall have the right to be consulted concerning the Prince’s choice of an heir-apparent to the Throne prior to that person's formal appointment as such; they shall not, however, be empowered to compel the Prince to yield to their advice in the matter.

b. The Prince may, at any time during their lawful reign, elect to nominate to the Grand Council of Electors, as a body, an individual of his choosing, male or female, belonging to the Eadric line as prescribed by the Constitutional Compact, to be formally recognized and appointed heir-apparent to the Throne, with right of succession to the Throne in the event of the Sovereign’s death, abdication, or removal due to permanent incapacitation, according to law.

c. The Prince, having permitted the Grand Council of Electors, as a body, to deliberate for up to 30 days concerning their choice of an heir-apparent and to tender to the Prince their collegial advice concerning the same, may subsequently appoint his nominee, in Council, by the elevation of his nominee to the style, title, and dignity of “Duke of St. Andre,” by Letters Patent by the Prince's signature.

d. The formal elevation of the Prince’s heir-apparent to the style, title, and dignity of “Duke of St. Andre” shall in no wise constrain the Prince from honouring the heir-apparent aforesaid with such additional degrees, styles, titles, and dignities as they shall think fit to honor him (or her) with.

e. In the event that the Prince shall nominate an individual to succeed him who is not a member of the Eadric line, such a nominee shall become a resident of the Most Serene Union automatically, without need of further formality, upon his (or her) formal appointment as the Prince’s heir-apparent by Letters Patent under the Prince's signature as prescribed above.

f. In the event that the Prince-in-Grand-Council should one day elect to gift the Most Serene Union (and its possessions), they may not be gifted to a foreigner, and shall be required to gift it to a citizen of Natopia, thereby abdicating his own sovereignty and that of this Most Sovereign Union to that new Prince, only done with the unanimous approval of the Grand Council of Electors.

Chapter V. Failure of the Prince to Appoint An Heir-Apparent to the Throne.

a. In the event that the Prince shall fail to appoint an heir-apparent prior to the lawful conclusion of their reign, the Grand Council of Electors shall elect a Prince from among the noble Houses of the Most Serene Union by a simple majority.

b. Should no candidate receive the majority support of the Grand Council of Electors, the Throne will revert to the Emperor of Natopia.

Chapter VI. The Duke of St. Andre, The Princely House, and Succession.

a. Upon his (or her) formal elevation to the style, title, and dignity of Duke of St. Andre, the heir-apparent shall subscribe to the affirmation posted in the schedule hereto in the presence of the Prince-in-Grand-Council.

b. Upon his (or her) formal elevation to the style and title of Duke of St. Andre, the heir-apparent to the Princely Throne shall at once be understood to be an adopted member of the Most Serene House of which the Prince is the head and be subject to the internal statutes of the same, if indeed there be a Most Serene House, and if he (or she) is not already a member of that Most Serene House.

c. The name, composition, and statutes of the Most Serene House of the Union may be proclaimed from time to time by the Prince as he or she shall think fit.

d. Statutes of the Most Serene House which contradict this legislation or any other legislation of the Prince-in-Grand-Council shall be null and void.

e. In no wise shall the membership of the Most Serene House, or the family of the Prince, be understood to constitute an order of succession to the throne.

f. The impossibility of the extension of an order of succession to the Throne beyond the heir-apparent notwithstanding, the Prince shall in no wise be constrained from decreeing or otherwise publishing orders of precedence from time to time as he shall think fit.

g. The Duke of St. Andre shall always be understood to rank in precedence in the Most Serene Union immediately behind the Prince's Consort, or if there be no Consort, behind the Prince themselves, and shall be accorded all due honor and deference as is properly accorded the heir-apparent to the Most Serene Throne.

h. The Duke of St. Andre shall be entitled to a seat, a voice, and a vote in the Grand Council of Electors and in the Small Council.

i. A Duke of St. Andre, once lawfully appointed, may not be deprived of his (or her) title and inheritance except by a Decree from the Prince-in-Grand-Council to that effect.

Chapter VI. Terminology.

Every reference in this Bill to "The Prince" shall, unless the context requires otherwise, be deemed to include a reference to the Prince's lawful heirs and successors, of either sex.

Chapter VII. Commencement.

This legislation and all the provisions therein shall come into force upon receiving the Prince's Assent.

SCHEDULE

The Solemn Affirmation of the Duke of St. Andre:

"I, N.N., do this day, in the presence of Your Most Serene Highness and Your Most Serene Grand Council of Electors, declare and profess that I am become your liege man (or woman) of life and limb, here to do You homage, and to profess unto Your Most Serene Highness my perfect loyalty and obedience.

I do solemnly and sincerely affirm before Your Most Serene Highness that I will observe and faithfully adhere to the Laws enacted by Your Most Serene Highness in this Your Grand Council of Electors and in Your Small Council, and that I shall, at all times, conduct myself in a manner befitting the heir to a Throne so august and revered as that of Your Most Sacred and Excellent Serene Highness."
