I just realized... Tiberiam used to be "Tribal Council." And afterwards, utilizing the government system given by NX, it became "Judicial Republic."

However... currently our system of government is RADICALLY different from NX's model. What we have is RIDICULOUSLY powerful executive branch followed by legislative branch who elects the positions into power. There is checks and balances, but such right is ONLY given to CoFP, who is re-elected tri-monthly.

This is probably because most of the system is my brainchild... gearing towards efficiency instead of legitimacy. However, we need to figure out what to name this system. Does anyone have any ideas? Because seriously? This is probably not a judicial republic anymore... I mean... we no longer "judge." We act on our own wantings ^^.

Or Triumvirate if you want it to sound less death-panel-y.

The Triumvirates of Tiberiam? ToT? Sounds interesting ^^

I think that is good. And it matches (somewhat) with the constitution. We shall keep it until we can get a team of us to study NX's judicial republic system and have IT back as our original constitution... although I am SO vamping up donk's constitution...

Any other ideas? Or agreement that this is epic?

Latin clearly isn't spoken much in South Korea. Allow me to dictate the grammatical technicalities.

A triumvirate is ruled by three triumviri. The singular is trimuvir.

Latin isn't spoken ANYWHERE... maybe except vatican. And I did learn Latin.

However, Triumvirate is an ENGLISH NOUN. The original word that you are looking for is Triumviratus, whose plural form is Triumvirati. While the definition indicates set of three in a government... exact definition being the office or magistracy of a triumvir or a government of three officers or magistrates functioning jointly... and thus my definition of Triumvirates being wrong meaning-wise, it is by NO means that you could insult Korea by stating that we do not know Latin.

Correct, triumvirate is English. Triumvir and triumviri are Italian. Both descend from Latin. And, yeah, Latin isn't a vernacular tongue anywhere.

And why would not knowing Latin be an insult?

You forget my ethnicity: I am Korean.

One thing you MUST know about Koreans: we get offended and insulted in nearly EVERYTHING negative about our ethnicity. Hence, when you said a general statement that all Koreans are inept at learning Latin, I conceive that as an insult. Your piece of ethnic information thar.

Oh, speaking of offending Koreans, I sell racist t-shirts on the side. I found the perfect one for you.

Not squinting, just Korean

What do you think? Razz

Also, here's the best Chappelle clip. Sorry that everything is backwards on youtube.
