The NICE Act allows penguins who can speak to choose an alternative name however they must be issued with a national identity card called a NICE card. Once issued with a national identity card, which is filled with information like criminal records, citizenships etc, they are added to the NICE registry. All information regarding the citizen with the NICE card is on that registry which is used by the AIB. The card is renewed anually, although an AIB agent can change the card by recalling it and changing information.
Each card includes the following information:
- Name: Their real name.
- NICE Name: The NICE name.
- Date of Birth: The date of birth
- Location of Birth: The location of birth.
- Current Location: The location of the penguin.
- Citizenships: A list of citizenships.
- Occupation: The occupation of the penguin.
- Criminal Record: A simple yes or no to state whether the card user has a criminal record.
- Issued by: The appealleate court that issued the card, followed by the Justice of the Peace, Law Clerk, Paralegal or Lawyer who filled out the application.
- National status: Whether the penguin is an alien or a citizen of the USA, If the penguin is discovered to be an illegal immigrant, the penguin recieves the word illegal before deportation.
When the Constitution of the United States of Antarctica was written, the South Pole Council were playing a game of Rugby when one delegate from Weddell realised how nicknames like Bieberluver or Smilecools were being used rather then their real names. By coincidence, he happened to be a member of the AIB and took the idea to the AIB; he proposed the introduction of NICE cards, which would give you the chance to adopt an alternative name in return for recieving a national identity card.
The proposal was submitted to the Nineteenth State Appelate Court of Eastshield, whose Justice of Peace approved. The NICE Act was passed and read:
AN ACT INTRODUCING 'NICE CARDS' TO ANTARCTICA
AS GUIDED BY THE NINETEENTH STATE APPELLATE COURT OF EASTSHIELD
In realisation of a possible counterevolutionary threat and the popularity of unofficial alternative names, the NICE Act has been impletated for benefactors to recieve an alternative name of his or hers choice, to be used on all applications and legal documents in the jurisdictions which this precedent has the force of law, in return for a national identitiy card and the addition to the NICE List, which will be used by government officials to prevent terrorists, criminals, injusts or other rogues will destabilising order.
Anyone can apply for a NICE card at the nearest court authorized by their state to issue an application, providing they are able to speak and consent to the process by their own will. Ability to change your NICE name varies upon juristriction; states may choose how much power they wish to devolve to smaller areas in deciding in changing NICE name.
The NICE name shall contain ones name of birth, NICE name, date of birth, area of birth, current location present, post code, their citizenships and any criminal records, along with other records seen as required by the individual states.
Prior to recieving a NICE name, one shall recieve a preNICE name, which is their animal (example. Penguin) and a random nine digit number (example. 678414210). Until recieving his or her NICE name, they shall use their preNICE name for identification, or their name of birth, instead of a NICE name. They recieve a preNICE card along with their birth certificute. If a law enforcement officer sees that a NICE name is deemed "unclean" by community standards, they must send a request to their nearest court of first instance for a revert back to the preNICE name or order to revert the use of the birth name.
All states must issue NICE cards at least to the minimum standard. They may devolve power to regional authorites on NICE cards though, on whether to allow changes to NICE names, on the minimum age required for a NICE name, and other provisions on their card.
No judge shall be compelled to obey or issue NICE cards, but, in the event that a moral violation is perceived, said judge must provide an accessible route to an appealate court to complete the process.
All applications are forwarded from the applicable court jurisdiction to federal level officers who register the NICE cards. Then, the card is sent to the benefactor.
After recieving a NICE card, applicants that have opted into the program must be aware that their phone calls, their e-mails and electronic messages, along with other communications, may be monitored by government agents if they have probable cause to suspect acts of villainy, fraud, or terrorism.
This is for counterterrorism actions and to track down malicous villains. A NICE card is also used for border security purposes and to punish terrorists (the NICE registry contains information which can be used for court).
If an application is rejected, one has the right to appeal to higher court circuits until said judicial avenue is exhausted, or they may appeal directly to federal agents.
He who applies for a NICE card is then subject to all NICE regulations and orders. Failure of a cardholder to renew your NICE card or hand it to officials when it's called back can and will result in misdemeanor prosecutions not exceeding ten years, two thousand coins, or both, in addition to revocation and reversion back to the cardholder's name of birth.
No creature, for any reason, can be coerced or compelled, through physical, fiscal, mental, or other threats towards their safety, family, body, or property, or anything else they so possess, to apply for a NICE card, and no creature can be forced to change their name by a NICE card. Possession of a NICE card or lack thereof may not be used as a means of disenfranchisement or violation of judicial rights. Creatures without a NICE card are to use their birth name alone on legal documents, and those who apply for NICE cards should limit themselves to their NICE name.
Persuant to the Constitution of this nation, this precedent shall only apply to court jurisdictions whose judges have, through the established process laid out, have approved or rejected this precedent. In the event that the South Pole Council issues this as law, or in the event that two of the Three Superior Courts approve this precedent by means established, it shall be implemented nationwide.
SIGNED BY JUSTICE OF THE PEACE OF THE NINETEENTH STATE APPELLATE COURT OF EASTSHIELD, SHROO JONES.
All superior courts approved the application and the act was impletated nationwide within a year. One amendment were made. It applied exclusively to Club Penguin Island. It was made via a request to the First State Appellate Court of Sub-Antarctica by The Club on the opening of Club Penguin Island beta testing.
AMENDMENT ONE TO THE NICE ACT:
As requested by The Club, Club Penguin Island declares that ones NICE name is their official name and shall appear on official documents like passport and Player Cards. It is also impossible for any name changes to occur. The only way to be legally exempt from this is to legally to have moved from Club Penguin Island into a new dwelling.
