The Founding of a Nation Project

Monica Agrawal, Emily Davis, Kailah Snelgrove

1. Name: Nerdfighteria Island

2. Government: Constitutional Monarchy

3. Power passed through the Green family, starting with John Green, to Baby
Yeti, to the oldest child in the next generation, and so on. If no Green
children are born for the next generation, an election is held. The Greens (or
other elected officials following in their footsteps) have supreme power and
the final word in all decisions, with the digression of Parliament. Parliament
sees necessary changes, inform the Greens, and the Greens approve or deny
said changes. The Greens may, of course, also enforce any laws or changes
they deem necessary that have not been suggested by Parliament. Many
similar governments (such as the United Kingdom) have been successful,
and this ensures power will most likely be in the right hands for the duration
of Nerdfighteria Island’s existence.
