The Constitution of the United States of Antarctica, also known simply as the Consitution, is the legal document to which the entire government of the USA was founded upon. It outlined the basic principles and powers of the government, as well as the framework for any future laws passed on the federal level. Originally inteded to be a repair to the Articles of Loose Togetherness, this powerful document was drafted from scratch by some of the most PWNsome folks of the 1990s. The only country in the USA, which doesn't follow the constitution, are the Warmslates and Freezeland (Constitution of Freezeland). They have they own version. Due to political reasons, stated in the Treaty of Dorkugal, nobody is able to change that.


Background[edit]

Main article: Constitution Writing Squad

After the EPIC FAIL of the Articles of Loose Togetherness, the Constitution Writing Squad came back to session at Club Penguin's Night Club with the intent to revise it and make it less fail. Many famous penguins attended, and delegates from every modern state (except Pengolia which didn't exist until 2003) attened and battled each other for government fairness, balence, stability, and most importantly, ease of use.

The wacky statesmen often had personal gain on their minds (particularly Mabel von Injoface XVIII, Mabel's mother), so the battle was long and hard. Compromises ensued, and Mabel XVIII is rumored to have added stuff to the document at the last second.........

The entire thing was ordered to be kept secret. That meant shutting down the Night Club, turning off the music, closing the windows and placing guards in every entrance and the roof. They wrote by candlelight to ensure that no one would know of what happened in there. They only wanted the Masses to know the result, not the battles that made it.


Original, Pre-Amended Text[edit]

THE UBER 1337 CONSTITUTION OF THE KRYTOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES OF ANTARCTICA

Preamble[edit]

WE THE CREATURES, IN ORDER TO FORM A BETTER UNION THAN THE LAST ONE, ESTABLISH BANHAMMERS AND GUARENTEE THE DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY, TO PROVIDE FOR THE CREATURES' DEFENSE, UPGRADE EVERYONE'S WELFARE AND, SECURE THE GLORY OF EPIC WIN TO OURSELVES AND OUR PROSPERITY. WE'LL ORDAIN AND SET UP THIS HERE CONSTITUTION, OF THE UNITED STATES OF ANTARCTICA.

It is for the reasons outlined, and because the Articles of Loose Togetherness were the biggest Epic Fail since the King, that the Constitutional Writing Squad has re-assembled to write a new governing body which will be so better than anything that our Former Tyrant's momma could ever produce.

We who have convened hereby guarantee that any and all creatures within the Jurisdiction that this document controls shall be able to access its freedoms.

We also guarantee that this document shall uphold the basic things that all penguins, no, all CREATURES should have, and that what we worked our tail feathers off fighting for shall never again resurface. Never again shall the Masses be enslaved by a tyrannical Noob that we actually referred to as King!

Powers of the President are as follows:

  • The President may appoint and create positions in an Executive Cabinet. He can create as many positions and bureaucracies stemming from the Cabinet as needed. The Cabinet's powers are subordinate to the Legislature and as such hold less power.

Higher ranking courts can overturn this decision. There may be any number of highest courts that can have a final say on the matter of the lawsuit.

Any non-family who Affiliates with Mabel must either revoke their Membership(s) or not enter the judicial career.

If a creature obtains proper prerequisites to become a judge and obtains the seat, but it is later discovered to be a Mabel family member or crony as stated Above, he or she is to Revoke their position as Judge or publicly denounce Mabel and all she stands for, with audio and video recordings. A public notary is to sign this to Affirm that it happened. Only then may the once again preside.

Article Four, Section One, Clause Two[edit]

The Legislature or the Masses can propose a Constitutional Amendment. To amend this Constitution, two-thirds of all present Delegates and the Chief Justice must approve. If the Chief Justice strikes it down, the amendment is dead.

This Article was mostly struck out by Amendment Seventeen.

Three-fourths of all colonies left over by that Weenie of a King must vote to Ratify this Constitution. The polls will be held on June 27th, 2000. Until then, everyone is to get comfortable in their new-found freedom.

However, the Articles of Loose Togetherness are no longer in effect, so enjoy this short period of anarchy to arrange yourselves.
