I move to add Section I in Chapter 7 of the Lawbook to formalize the status of such protected persons of the Kaiser that already exist and who undoubtedly will come to exist in the Imperial Republic. It is important for these vulnerable people's safety, integrity and dignity, that their status is formalized.
Measures were taken under the late Steward Mira Octavius-Aryani to begin a formalization of these people's statuses. I applaud these efforts, and certain colonies for at-risk labour have been established and run with great satisfaction for everyone involved.
As such, I commend this bill to the Landsraad, Adelsraad, and Folksraad.
Chapter 7: People of Shireroth
Section I: Protected Person of the Kaiser
1. A person who does not meet the criteria for inclusion in the nobility or in denizenship, who has not tendered voluntary submission into loyal subjecthood, or else has not been sentenced to community servitude by lawful authority, and who is not subject to a foreign power or has not immigrated to the Imperial Republic against the law of the Imperial Republic is a protected person of the Kaiser.
2. It is the responsibility of the Imperial Government to provide protected persons of the Kaiser such food and housing as is necessary for their upkeep as well as meaningful work necessary for their physical and spiritual wellbeing.
3. Protected persons shall for their protection live outside the remits of state or dominion jurisdictions, but shall be governed in special colonies established under imperial law. Protected persons shall, for their protection, not have any significant contact with people outside of these special colonies.
4. Protected persons rank (13).
