    The following is a list of all the orders which have been promulgated by posting to this forum. Orders are a sub-form of statutory instrument. They order a body or bodies to take some action. There are also orders which create regulations or rules. They are Regulations. You can find them at this link.

    The Statutory Instruments Act 2017 gives multiple means by which a statutory instrument may be promulgated – via this forum, via dispatch, and via the NS forums.

    The Statutory Instruments have been edited as necessary to reflect changes and errors in grammar. The government also maintains a central repository of statutory instruments at this link:

    Statutory Instrument
    2019, No. 4

    Legislation (No. 1) Order 2019

    Made 7 September 2019 22.16 BST-5 (NS time)
    Coming into force immediately​

    The European Council makes this order in exercise of the powers conferred by sections 3(a) and 4 of the Government (Council) Act 2017.
    1. This order may be cited as the Legislation (No. 1) Order 2019.

    2. For a period from the the commencement of this order to five days hence, sections 3(b), 4, and 5 of the Commission Resignation Act 2019 shall not be operative.

    Explanatory Note. This is not part of the order.

    The Government (Reform) Act 2017, which creates the Commission, specifies in section 7(c) thereof that "If a post is unfilled, the post may be taken by the colleague nearest to reelection, subject to the veto of the Delegate within three days. Otherwise, the post shall remain unfilled until the next election".

    Sections 3(b), 4, and 5 of the Commission Resignation Act 2019 require the Delegate to find a nation under certain conditions to replace a Commissioner who is to resign. However, in section 7(c) of the Government (Reform) Act 2017 states that posts which are not taken, subject to veto, by the colleague nearest to reelection, "shall remain unfilled until the next election".

    The question before the Council is:

    Do these sections of the Commission Resignation Act 2019 – or any section creating any scheme other than that described section 7(c) of the Government (Reform) Act 2017 – which would fill a vacant post in the Commission, contradict section 7(c) of the Government (Reform) Act 2017?

    Mute Order 2019

    Made 11 October 2019 16.46 BST-5 (NS time)
    Coming into force immediately​

    The Moderation Committee, in exercise of powers granted by section 3(d) of the RMB Moderation Act 2019, voted 4-0, with one abstention, yielding an absolute majority of 80 per cent, to order as follows:
    1. The nation of "Unpopular People" shall refrain from posting on Europe's RMB for a period not to exceed five days from the commencement of this Order. Any posts made in contravention of this Order shall be suppressed. If more than three posts are made in violation of this Order, the subject shall be ejected.

    2. This Order may be cited as the Mute Order 2019. This Order comes into effect immediately.

    Opinion. The following is not part of the Order.

    The Delegate Imperium Anglorum, joined by Commissioner Regnum Italiae, 1st Deputy Commissioner St Scarlett, and 2nd Deputy Comissioner Yahlia:

    The question before us is one about defamation. The case was brought by Feria-Alkaline, who self-recused as being the involved in the exchange. The nation "Unpopular People" made a post saying (corrected for capitalisation) "I want to blame the person who tried to suppress me for being an African man".

    The standard for defamation is extremely clear. It must (1) be designed, (2) damage an individual's reputation, (3) be unproven, and (4) be about their character, actions, or personal history. Claiming that a person "tried to suppress me for being an African man" damages the subject's (Feria-Alkaline) reputation, is unproven, and is about the subject's history.

    As the post is clearly connected to an earlier post by the same nation, "Why [do] you keep suppressing my posts[?] Please[,] I just want to participate and be free" (capitalisation corrected), it is not obviously satirical or in jest. This fulfils the purpose requirement specified by criterion 1.

    The Moderation Committee exercised its authority under section 3(d) to make the Order, with one recusal, drawing down the denominator to five. With one abstention and four votes in favour, the majority is not less than two-thirds.

    Feria-Alkaline self-refused and was not involved in consideration of this case. No vote was recorded for The Poland-Lithuania Commonwealth, and was counted for majority-determination as if it was Nay.
