Proposed Form of Government : As I don't think anything too complicated should be initiated, so I think a bit of a spinoff of Monarchy is in order. First of all, There would be three major parties. The Leader, The Generals, and The Parliament.
The Leader, as his name shows, is of course the head of the group. The leader will appoint Generals and if the leader is ever to forgo his position, then the Parliament would vote for a new leader (This leader would have to be one of the Appointed Generals or one [In rare cases] of the elected Parliament members. See Parliament for more info.) The Leader makes all the important decisions among the group, such as : Where to build the Capitol, whether to use the remaining diamonds on Pickaxes or Swords, or to make any head on assault. The Leader should however, by no means sit back and do nothing. Every group member is useful and the leader should take his part in getting down and dirty building a farm with other group members. There would be a Maximum of 1 Leader.
The Generals, would essentially be as once again the name points out, A war general. Generals are appointed by the Leader and can rise to be the leader if he is to fall from his position. Generals can make slightly less important decisions regarding outposts, minor spendings, raids, etc. They are the main advisors to the Leader as well. As with the Leader, the Generals are by no means entitled to do less work or take more for themselves. Their main goal is to ensure the safety of the group above their own. Generals take charge whenever the leader is not online, though they may not do anything the leader has specifically spoken against, or that they think he would disapprove of. If more than 1 General is online and the Leader is offline, then the Generals must agree on what to do. Majority Rules. All Generals should have a major outpost of their own that the group can fall back to in times of panic. (Maximum of 3 Generals Minimum of 2)
The Parliament, would be that bureaucratic group of jackasses, that everyone loves to hate, although the government would fall to pieces without them. They are elected every 1-2 IRL weeks from the group and are charged with appointing a new leader (Only if the Old Leader forgoes his position) and making petty decisions. The amount of people in the Parliament would probably be changed every election period, as it would be 1/3 of all the Non-General/Non-Leader members in the group. (Rounded down) In the case of a leader falling from power it would be up to the Parliament to elect a new one. If the person running for leadership is a General, then they only need majority to vote him/her into power. If the person running is a Parliament member, then 3/4 of the total votes are needed to put him/her in power. The Parliament takes place running the group if the following requirements are met. A: Leader is not on. B: General(s) are not on. C: There are more than 4 Non-Parliament members on. D: There are a minimum of 4 Parliament members online.
Views : As the general idea of the server is two warring factions, this will of course be a primarily combat based nation. Along with combat however, I hope to also bring in forms of architecture and advanced strategy.
Warfare : For the most part, Byzantium will be a Covert Operations type of deal. There will be a few minor murders here and there and the occasional raid on a base. However, if properly organized, there will be a large amount of people flooding into your base waving swords and TNT. Once we have appropriately found and raided a base, it will be destroyed.
Also, I believe I would be an equal match to SUN, due to me being neither a complete "Newbie" to minecraft warfare, but not being an expert either.
