The HKE is an Elective Monarchy where the Emperor is chosen by the electors. File:/3/groups/ourheroesandourflags.jpg


The Emperor of the Holy Kotetsu Empire presides over the general peace and well-being of all members of the Empire and is to propose resolutions and acts to the Imperial Sessions to fulfill this duty. The Emperor is to visit each Elector territory at least once during his reign, and to attend most grand events held within the Empire and in the name of the Empire abroad. The Emperor is the first spokesperson for political and diplomatic matters for the Empire as a whole, though the Kingdoms override for themselves what the Emperor says. Only the Emperor may suggest the entire Empire going to war together, and his suggestion must be approved or denied by the Electors. In such a war, he acts as the Grand General, responsible for assembling and organizing the Empire’s forces and assets. The Emperor acts as the first mediator in friction between members.

Electing the Emperor

An election must take place at least every 6 months, though the Electors may call for an election no sooner than 2 months after the ascent of the Emperor to the throne. Citizens of the Empire may either make a claim to the throne for themselves or nominate others.


The Electors of the Holy Kotetsu Empire preside over the general politics and order of all members of the Empire and are to propose and vote on resolutions and acts to the Imperial Sessions. Each Elector is to be open to all complaints, praise, and suggestions of those within their territory and dutifully carry these comments to the Imperial Sessions for discussion.
