3) The roles of Founder, Prime Minister, President, and Minister of Development shall have administrator privileges on the server.
4) Discord Spam, or making a post extremely irrelevant to the respective topic, making a post that is very offensive or obscene, making a post that advertises for another region, making a post that intentionally targets and offends a specific nation or a group of nations or people, or making a post without authorization in a restricted channel, is hereby a Criminal Offense and classified as a Misdemeanor.
5) When someone joins the Discord server, they shall automatically be assigned the Newcomer role, which shall only have permissions to view the Announcements and Chat channels.

B: The Member role, as well as all government roles, shall have read permissions for the Announcements channel, and read and write permissions for the Chat channel.
7) A: If a nation has been judicially sentenced as a result of the commission of a Criminal Offense, and that sentence includes a Discord Ban, they shall have all roles replaced by the role of Banned.
B: The Banned role shall have no other permissions than to view the Announcements Channel.
C: If the Discord Ban is temporary, at the end of the Discord Ban term, their role of Banned shall be replaced with the Member Role and all applicable government roles.

9) The Founder shall conduct a poll to survey the Members of the Union and determine which server location (See Article II, Clause 3 of this Document) is closest to their IRL locations.  If there is a tie, there shall be a runoff between the tied options, and if there is still a tie, the Founder, at their own discretion, may choose between the tied options.  The winner of the poll shall be adopted as the server location.
 
ARTICLE IV: Conclusion
We, the Parliament of the Union, hereby enact the above positions as law, and order them to be executed by the founder within thirty (30) days of the assent of this document.
