naw keep it its a good look
How this nation is going to work....IDK yet. Gotta include some sort of organized labor alongside the oligarchic merchant leadership. It is Michigan after all, we do have the famous UAW. Socialist Merchant Republic? Paradoxical to say the least.
EDIT: The First issue for this nation is "Auto Industry Struggles Against Foreign Imports". Perfection.
Is that Michigan in the style of Venice?
Correct. If we ever get around to getting rid of our blue bedsheet, I'm legit going to submit the design. It incorporates most of our state symbols. Copper coloring for the floral designs and squares, the Isle Royale Greenstone, and even making the Fleur de Lys purple for the state wildflower.
Michigan and her lakes, Venice and her Lagoon.
that looks really good
I am happy for the MoU between us!

I have it!
Michigan follows mixed government model, combining monarchy in the Gitchigumi, aristocracy in the senate, republic of leading mercantile-industrial families in the major council, and a democracy in the Union.
The bedrock of the republic is the "Union". Inheritors of the legacy of Michigan's famous "United Auto Workers", the Union has become a political institution that has extended its umbrella to most labor workers within the boundaries of the republic. All workers are guaranteed their labor rights, but only those who pay the large stipend to be a "Duespayer" become active members of the union, de facto true citizens of the republic. All duespayers are also stockholders in the companies they work for and partial co-owners of the ships that ply their trade (should the company have them). It is from the Union and its "Golden Book of Membership" that the Grand Council is selected. The 2000 tend to be from old Union families, Industrial Magnates, the descendants of the captains of industry, and political dynasties. The Union is an active legislative body, who's powers are to approve or veto the major measures of government undertaken by the Senate or the Madood (lit. corrupted anishinaabeg word for sweat lodge, the executive council.) Day-to-day laws are usually out of their power unless decided to be of "pan-national importance" by the Quarantine Court.
The Grand Council is the heart of the state, and the offices/bodies of state are elected from among its many members:
-The Senate The Senate originated as a select committee of sixty men, chosen by the Grand Council, to deliberate on decrees concerning taxation, commerce, foreign policy, and military operations, instead of the far larger, and more unwieldy, Grand Council. It also works along side six of the ogimaw (corrupted anishinaabeg word for chief) and the full college.
-The Quarantine Court Its name a reference to its etymological origin, the Court of Forty is basically the Supreme Court of the republic. They were also empowered to nominate candidates for the position of Gitchigumi. These forty are elected in their turn by nine electors who were nominated by the Union. After completing their primary role as the Gitchigumi's nominators, they remain in power alongside the Gitchigumi as the Judiciary, participating with the Senate in the state government and the legislative functions, which are often delegated to them by the Grand Council, in which the forty are members by law. The Quarantine Court is responsible for the approval and the scrutiny of new appointments to the Grand Council and the Senate but also preparation of draft laws concerning criminal justice and fiscal management.
-The Minor Council The Six Councilors alongside the Gitchigumi, serve both as advisors and partners, sharing and limiting their authority. The members of the Minor Council are elected by the Grand Council, and the chosen members are prohibited from refusing the election on heavy penalties. Their terms of office last for one year, followed by another year where they are prohibited from occupying the same office. The Gitchigumi is dependent on the assent of at least four councillors for his decisions to have force, and can not even open dispatches except in their presence, while conversely the Minor Council do not require the Gitchigumi's presence to act.
Alongside the three leading members of the Quarantine Court, the Gitchigumi and Minor Council form the Madood. The executive office of state. The Madood alongside the twelve Ogimaw (military and naval officers, high magistrates all chosen from the senate), constituted the Full College...the Cabinet of the Republic.
