Directorate Government Structure
Computer Terminal, Starflower College, Tio-4

Scientific Directorate – A mandated government created for the purpose of Scientific Advancement and the Social Advancement.

Autonomy – Self Governance, being able to police, and create local militias for protection of Gates and other industries

Federalization – A Provision to Federalize Militias into the proper Defense Forces during times of Crisis, or Federalization into the Scientific Directorate, a process that allows non member nations into the Directorate.

The Committee on Scientific Advancement, whose leader (Chief Scientist of the Directorate) gathers individuals of all sciences to understand and communicate the needs and wants of their respective science. This branch, in a traditional sense, is also the executive branch.

The Directorate’s Legislation is created by the Rose Senate. Senators meet at the senate to discuss Laws. The leader of this branch is based on Seniority, who is known as the President Pro Tempore. Though, systems can choose not to send any Senators, they still have to abide by rules and regulations that the Rose Senate passes.

Though most systems are set in Sectors. Sector Governments pass their own rules and regulations. For example, in Atlia Reach, planets are required to keep a garrison of 50 Thousand.

Directorate Laws > Sector Laws > System Laws > Planetary Laws/Station Laws
