The Euclean Community (EC; Gaullican: Communauté Eucléenne, CE) is a politico-economic union of 12 member states that are located primarily in Euclea. It has an estimated population of over 356 million. The EC has developed an internal single market through a standardised system of laws that apply in all member states. Euclean policies aim to ensure the free movement of people, goods, services, and capital within the internal market, enact legislation in justice and home affairs, and maintain common policies on trade, agriculture, fisheries, and regional development. Within the Zilverzee Area, passport controls have been abolished. A monetary union was established in 1996 and came into full force in 2000, and is composed of 12 EC member states which use the Euclo currency.

Through the Continental Foreign and Security Policy, the EC has developed a role in external relations and defence. The community maintains permanent diplomatic missions throughout the world and represents itself at the Community of Nations, the International Trade Organisation, the C10, and the C-20. Because of its global influence, the Euclean Community has been described as a current or as a potential superpower.

Governance

Euclean Trident

Euclean Commission

The Euclean Commission acts as the EC's executive arm and is responsible for initiating legislation and the day-to-day operations of the EC. The Commission is also seen as the motor of Euclean integration. It operates as a cabinet government, with 24 commissioners for different areas of policy. There is one from each member states. However, commissioners are expected to represent the interests of the EC as a whole as opposed to those of their home nation.

The head of the Euclean Commission is the High Commissioner (currently Niina Hermansdohter). After the High Commissioner, the most senior is the Commissioner for Legal Affairs and the Rule of Law, who also serves as the First Deputy High Commissioner. Two additional commissioners serve as the Second Deputy High Commissioner and Third Deputy High Commissioner. The other 24 Commissioners are subsequently selected by the Euclean Council in agreement with the nominated High Commissioner. The 25 commissioners as a single body are subject to a vote of approval by the Euclean Parliament.

Euclean Conference

The Euclean Conference is considered to be the EC's premier political institution. Its membership consists of the President of the Euclean Community (currently Alexis Walker) and one representative per member state; either its head of state or head of government. The Euclean Conference guides the direction of the EC. It primarily focuses on the negotiation of treaty changes and establishing the policy agenda and strategies for the EC as a whole. It also works to resolve disputes between member states and the institutions of the EC.

Working with the President of the Euclean Comminity, the Euclean Conference plays a supporting role and acts as a collective head of state for the EC. It ratifies important documents, such as international agreements and treaties, for the EC. The Euclean Conference is chaired by the President of the Euclean Community, who is mostly tasked with representing the EC externally. facilitating dialogue between member states, and ensuring the direction of the Euclean Commission.

The Euclean Conference meets at least four times a year at the EC's offices in Kesselbourg.

Euclean Council

The Euclean Council is made up of a dedicated delegation sent by the government of each member. Delegates are typically a high-ranking member of the state’s diplomatic corps, however at times a delegate has been a prominent politician with experience in diplomacy. The Council’s primary duty is to lobby the concerns of the member states in propositions of legislation supported by the Commission. Before legislation is introduced to Parliament, it is often debated by the Council. The body often drafts policy, but it does not have the power to introduce it as legislation. However, the Council can pass a resolution endorsing a particular policy, and the Parliament is required to consider the Council’s resolutions for debate. The Council is indirectly elected and convenes on a daily basis to discuss suggestions and concerns to the bills put forward by the Commission, draft policy itself, and offer commentary on legislation that is ultimately accepted by the Parliament. The Council is chaired by the President of the Euclean Community.

Several member states maintain strategic alliances within the EC. Examples of such alliances include the Northern Forum, the Morwall-Westbrücken Understanding, and the Group of Six.

Euclean Parliament

The Euclean Parliament serves as the EC’s legislature. The 779 Members of the Euclean Parliament (MEPs) are directly elected by EC citizens every five years on the basis of proportional representation. Although MEPs are elected on a national basis, they sit according to political groups rather than their nationality. Each country has a set number of seats and is divided into sub-national constituencies where this does not affect the proportional nature of the voting system.

The Parliament is the only body with the power to propose and pass legislation. However, the Euclean Council often drafts policy. While it does not have the power to introduce it as legislation, it can pass resolutions endorsing policies. The Parliament is required to consider the Council’s resolutions for debate. Finally, the Commission is accountable to Parliament, requiring its approval to take office, having to report back to it and subject to motions of censure from it. The Speaker of the Euclean Parliament carries out the role of speaker in parliament and represents it externally. Reinhard Weisgerber (ACDE - Werania) serves as the current speaker. The EP Speaker and the 13 Deputy-Speakers are elected by MEPs every two and a half years.

Traditionally, Parliament has been governed by a successive ‘Grand Continental Coalition’. The Alliance of Conservatives and Democrats for Euclea and Socialist Alternative for Euclea have held a majority in the Euclean Parliament and have worked together. The coalition was later expanded to include the Euclean Liberal Party, leading the three main Euclophilic parties to work together in the Parliament thus maintaining a strong majority.

Euclean Central Bank

The Euclean Central Bank, often abbreviated as the ECB, is the central bank for the euclo and the Euclean Community. It was established in 1995 as a precursor organisation during the development of the Euclozone currency area. As the Euclozone consists of 12 member states, many of whom are global economic powers in their own right, the ECB is one of the most important central banks in the world. As a result, the ECB occupies a central place in the administration of the Euclean Community, and works frequently with the central banks of member nations to develop a coherent and consistent financial policy across the entirety of the Euclozone. The initial capital stock of the ECB was invested by the central banks of all Euclozone member states, which retain primary and immediate control over the ECB. Headquartered in Rayenne, the current President of the ECB is Ioana Streulea, former governor of the Bank of Amathia and former director of Silverwood Hills international division. Prior to the construction of the Euclotower, the current seat of the ECB, the bank was situated in a former warehouse complex known as the Euclotheum.

As clearly stated in Article 3 of the Treaty of Vesalla, the primary objective of the Euclean Central Bank, is to maintain financial and price stability within the Euclozone. Subsections of the article go on to define its basic tasks as developing and implementing monetary policy for the Euclozone as a whole, to conduct foreign exchange operations, and to maintain financial reserves for the Central Banks of all member nations. Additionally, the ECB is tasked with maintaining and developing the financial market infrastructure throughout the Euclozone, and to arbitrate and mediate in fiscal disputes between member nations. Under Article 3, the ECB has the exclusive right to authorize the issuance of Euclo banknotes. The Central Banks of member nations maintain printing presses and may issue their own banknotes and coins, but the amount must be pre-approved by the ECB.

The ECB is governed by Euclean law directly as an integral institution of the Euclean Community, but the exact set-up of the ECB resembles the structure of a corporation, especially in the sense that the ECB has shareholders, stocks, and capital reserves. Its capital is roughly 5.5 billion euclo held by the national central banks as shareholders. The initial capital, as well as annual investment, were determined in 1995 to be an adjustable scale based upon the population and GDP of each member state. To avoid instability within the ECB, shares are not transferable, and cannot be sold or used as collateral.
