Imperial Guard of AH.com

The Imperial Guard is a security organization charged with the task of protecting the Members and Houses of Parliament from potential assailants. It is set apart from the regular AH.com Armed Forces and is answerable only to Parliament, rather than either the President or the Ministry of War & Defense. The Imperial Guard's anthem is the Imperial March from Star Wars.

History

Through AH.com's Political history, His Administratorness' Government has dealt with occasional attempts to overthrow it. During the 2008 - 2009 session of Parliament, however, the government faced two separate coup attempts: the Crisis of 2008 and the AH.com People's Funny Hat Revolution. Following the defeat of the Funny Hat movement and the restoration of democratic government, a number of bills were introduced to Parliament to address the aftermath of the situation. One of those bills was the Parliament Security Act, which proposed the establishment of a security force to protect Parliament from future rebels.

The bill was passed by Parliament on April 26, 2009 and signed into law by Acting President Thande on May 20, 2009.

On May 21, 2009, MP Susano (FFF) nominated TheDarkServant to be the first Princeps Militantes. He also nominated maverick, big tex, euio, and colonelgoth to be Praefects. These nominations were seconded by MPs TheDarkServant (FFBF), Prime Minister LordInsane (E), Pkmatrix (YSP), maverick (E), 09camaro (E). With no dissent, the appointments are considered confirmed.

Organization

The organization of the Imperial Guard is outlined in Articles III and IV of the Parliament Security Act.

The Imperial Guard is led by a Princeps Militantes. Under his command are three groups:

  • Praefects, who may be appointed by Parliament during the Summer months.
  • Tribunes, who may be appointed by the Princeps Militantes during the Winter months.
  • Other Officers, who may be raised by the Princeps Militantes at any time under the conditions that the rank titles must be faux Latin and make no sense or coherence whatsoever.

From amongst the officers of the Imperial Guard, a Magistrus Gladium (or, Sword Master) is chosen for the responsibility of fighting duels in the name of the Imperial Guard.
