The senate of the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia rules and senators are outlined in this article.
The rules of the senate must be followed by every senator.
Posters have up to one week to join in any given debate for their senator to be counted as present and take part in deliberations, this exists so low interest bill threads can proceed with minimal interruption. Any player interested in participating on a bill, yet unable to write a full argument or deliberation should communicate with other players to let them know that they need to hold off on passing or defeating a bill.
A suggestion on organization: Senators should represent systems, not planets– the exception being that there are multiple major population centers in one system.
