The Republic of Belvadere (RB) is a state on the server governing the provinces of Belvadere. The President is dubs17. The capital is the province of Belvadere.


Government

The Republic of Belvadere is shockingly, a republic. This is a list of all government positions with the most powerful on top.

The President (dubs17) is the highest leader, making all the big decisions. He also serves as the commander-in-chief of the military in times of war. Dubs will always be the president, with no re-election ever for the presidential seat.

The Prime Minister acts as the main advisor to the president, also serving as the highest authority when the president is gone.

The Governors of Belvadere are the ones in charge of their own specific provinces, making decisions that affect them as a whole.

The Representatives Council consists of 5 members, all of which are to be elected.

The Province Councils are in each province and consist of citizens who have applied and have shown dedication to their specific province.

Citizens of RB are people who permanently reside in a province of Belvadere

Nationals of RB are people who reside in a territory of Belvadere or have a working permit in the provinces of Belvadere.


Border Control

Border control is very important to RBInsert non-formatted text here, as the safety of the country and its citizens is a top priority. Any entrance to a province or territory of Belvadere has a border checkpoint. Proper documentation is crucial to access the country. Citizens, nationals and diplomats only need a passport for entry, while noncitizens must have a passport and visa for entry. Improper documents result in an automatic denial of entry. Any attempts to pass the border without going through a checkpoint will result in an arrest. Any physical attack on an officer can lead to an arrest, but can also give the officers the right to shoot the attacker if necessary.

History

Origins

The province of Belvadere was founded as the town of Oak Ridge at the  C116  Belvadere station in early 2016 by dubs17 (at that point in time, Ender_Fire17). Growth happened very slowly, but soon it housed this buildings:

Derpy_Melon's Melon Shop and iMorgan

A residence of KevintheLlama15

City Hall

uCar Rental

Ender's Parteh Supplies

p11's da butter world

A Lighthouse

A harbor

And... An apartment complex

Reconstruction

After Oak Ridge had reached this amount of buildings, Ender_Fire17 became Citizen and took a 2 month break from MRT. When Ender returned in April 2016, now known by his current username, Papyrus decided to make a MAJOR overhaul in Oak Ridge. This is when Papyrus renamed the town to Belvadere to make it sound more original and European. Then, he tore EVERYTHING down except the roads and City Hall. This began the new era of Belvadere.

As part of the overhaul to make Belvadere more European, two townhouses were constructed. They are now owned by Earack and _HeavenAngel_. A new harbor was constructed but soon demolished because it didn't fit the feel of a European style city. A major project in progress was the Belvadere Plaza Tunnel, which is a tunnel going under the large plaza behind City Hall.

This list is prioritized with most important on top, least on the bottom:

-Expand Belvadere's road network and general area

-Get train lines filled

-Create a franchise

-Finish the Historic District

-Build an area with a government complex
