Every Gustabov must abide by all rules of Honor. A Gustabov can be removed from their position of global leadership with an act of at least 60% of Representatives voting that the specific Gustabov is unfit for their current leadership position. If a Gustabov is removed, that individual will lose their Supreme-ship and may be sentenced to death. Every 30 years the Representatives will hold an election of a possible new Gustabov. The existing Gustabov is eligible to be a candidate to be reappointed to repeat their service in this elevated position of leadership. Candidates must be granted Supreme-ship prior to being appointed as a candidate. For each election, three Candidates are nominated by the top Representatives and approved by all Representatives by a 60% vote. Representatives vote — not the people — to determine which of the three candidates will become the Gustabov. Whichever Candidate gets the most votes becomes the Gustabov immediately. The losing candidates remain Supremes, but are slightly Shamed by the government. If there is a tie vote, the sitting Gustabov shall vote and make the final determination of who will be the new Gustabov. The Gustabov has final decision-making authority over all matters, including the make up of the Council of Representatives. If a female Gustabov is elected, the name of the position will become Elevair.
Act 15: Honor Act
Citizens are recommended to abide by the rules of Honor. If a citizen or group of citizens do not abide by the rules of Honor, there is a slight chance of being shamed by the government at the discretion of the Gustabov.
