The Emperor of the Empire Of Makko Oko is both the head of government and the head of state. Makko Oko has an authoritarian system wherein there is a sole leader, who is not elected, that makes virtually all decisions, in addition to their cabinet ministers. The office of Emperor has existed since Makko Oko's liberation from the old, Presidential government in 2019 after the end of the Civil Transition War. The title of Emperor was made official in 2022 with the official enactment of the Basic Rights Of Makko Oko, or the Constitution. Emperors cannot be removed by any force of law, nor by any individual, as the Constitution guarantees the power of the Emperor as "limitless and unlimited".
The first Emperor of Makko Oko, was Conall Solis, who had fought with the Anti-Poverty Forces during the war and made their way up to Lieutenant General. Conall Solis has been the shaping individual of the nation since the war, enacting many laws and making many changes different to that of the Republic. To this day, they are still the current Emperor, serving since September of 2019. Some of the things the Emperor does is meeting with cabinet ministers and other leaders in the nation regarding domestic matters such as the military, appointing cabinet ministers, writing and approving legislative text to become law, and representing Makko Oko internationally.
The Emperor of Makko Oko is much like a Monarchy, except the heads do not have to be blood-related to the previous ruler. How new rulers are decided is enshrined not only within Section 8 of the Basic Rights of Makko Oko, but also via the Bill Of Emperor's Passages. It states that the Emperor's will is to decide who the next ruler is, or if no will exists or if there's no willed individuals accepting, the line of succession outlined within the Bill Of Emperor's Passages.
Powers and Responsibilities
Section 7: Executive Power
Section 7, Article 24 states "The Emperor is to be the head of state and the head of government."
Section 7, Article 26
The Emperor has the full constitutional right to repeal, enact and revise laws and orders (Emperor's Orders) as they see fit.
War and foreign affairs powers
The Emperor reserves the full authority to appoint judges to any national court of the Empire, as they see fit. Seeing as the government is unitary, there are no local courts, therefore, all judges are appointed by the Emperor and regulated by the Minister Of Justice. Emperors may also grant pardons and reprieves.
Two doctrines concerning executive power have developed that enable the Emperor to exercise executive power with a degree of autonomy. The first is executive privilege, which allows the Emperor to withhold from disclosure any communications made directly to the Emperor in the performance of executive duties. The state secrets privilege allows the Emperor and the executive branch to withhold information or documents from discovery in legal proceedings if such release would harm national security.
Upon the death of an Emperor, per the Basic Rights of Makko Oko, the next Emperor is to be chosen according to the priorities on their last will, and then each individual is contacted, one by one, to see if they would accept the position by the Minister Of Defense. If none of them accept, the government moves onto the line of succession outlined within the Bill Of Emperor's Passages. The next Emperor must be appointed within 10 days in accordance to the bill.
In any circumstance where nobody is to succeed to the position, the government is authorized to pick and force a random individual who is a military tribunal or Inspectorate's Court judge to be the Emperor, per the Bill Of Emperor's Passages.
