I. First Measure

Once in office, completely abolish all previous institutions, laws and temporarily remove the state all together. Then establish a new meritocratic constitution.

2. Immediately after meritocracy has been established, all individuals with over a million Euros in assets will have all assets over the million Euro limit confiscated by the government. This confiscation will act as a one-time "reset button” of society.

II. Dialectical Meritocratic Republic

A. General Politics
1. The Dialectical Meritocratic Republic is the nation's management system. It is mandatory for all adult citizens that have at least high school education diploma to join this structure. The rest of the people (minors and people with less than a High School Education Diploma) will have no right to influence the country's policies.

System



2. Social class ideology in politics will be completely abolished.

3. Traditional political parties will be abolished. Political advertising will be severely limited. The only self-promotion allowed for politicians is through live nationally televised debates/speeches, local discussions within cities, or authentic, original books. Money donations to candidates are banned, as candidates will not need the money to campaign, and in order to restrain the power of private lobbyists.

4. All individuals will have access to political information in some form. Everything from horses to the internet/intranet may be used to ensure the flow of information.

5. To reduce administrative bureaucracy, the quantity and size of federal buildings will be limited. There will be one building for each federal division: one large building for the Assembly of Experts and specialists, one medium sized building for the Guardian Council, and one small building for the National Leader. All additional, former administrative buildings will be replaced with free public services, such as museums, hospitals, etc. Citizens will be allowed near the administrative buildings, but there will be all necessary security and restrictions to protect the government officials.

6. All government officials will be allowed short vacations, but the central three national branches must be ready to vote on all issues and work with the rest of the government year-round.

4. The educated masses can suggest laws & ideas to the Assembly of Experts. The Assembly will filter the suggestions they receive and make laws. In order for any law to be passed the majority of the Assembly must agree to issue that law. In the event of a tie, the National Leader will act as the tie-breaker. The National Leader will then approve or veto the law. The Assembly can override the Leader's veto with an 80% vote amongst the Assembly.

The vice-leader will replace the leader if he should be incapacitated. If both Leader and vice-leader are incapacitated, the Assembly of Experts will assume their roles until an election can be organized.

2. The election for National Leader will be a three round voting system. A majority of votes for any candidate at any time is all that is needed to win the election, so the three rounds will only proceed if no individual receives a prior majority.

2. The Guardian Council will have the responsibility of overthrowing any federal leader or institution that does not respect meritocratic principles, including the National Leader and Assembly of Experts.

The test will be given to registered candidates at universities across the nation. The specific essay prompts will be designed by the Guardian Council and will be kept hidden until the candidates are taking the test. After the test, the questions, essays, and candidate answers are released to the public, which can then be scrutinized by the population.
