  • Non-Tajara are able to apply, but the applicant must be accepted by various governmental committees and pass a thorough background check.

Izweski Hegemony

Feudal government is always an arrangement between individuals, not between nation-states and citizens. Citizenship as it is in the rest of the galaxy is a relatively alien concept to unathi, and they've had to awkwardly integrate it into their existing systems; modern citizenship only comes into play when interacting with other civilizations outside the Hegemony.

Visa Requirements

  • Applications are handled by Lords (or officials working on their behalf) and fees vary; usually between 0 - 2,000 depending on how the Lord wishes to control an influx of new arrivals to their fief.
  • A Hegemonic work Visa outlines a set number of hours you owe your Lord alongside the regular work you are doing with a Guild. This means that you owe X hours of labor directly to the Lord that they can call on you to do at any time. (Consider this a form of on-call community service.)
  • Documents proving that you are an upstanding person worthy of entering a Contract with a Lord; criminal records, work histories, etc. Your mileage may vary.

Citizenship

  • Citizenship can be given by any Lord within their fief, which is almost always recognized by the Izweski who then consider that person as a citizen of the overall Hegemony, and vice versa.
  • If born to Hegemonic citizens, you inherit the citizenship status of your Clan-Lord, father, or mother, in that order, until you are 18 and negotiate your citizenship as a legal adult.
  • If applying as a foreigner, you must be 18 (or claimed by a relative, adopted or otherwise).
  • Pass the same requirements as a Visa.
  • The Hegemony allows dual citizenship, as long as you maintain your obligation to your Lord, where they can call on you to fulfill X hours of labor a month, or call you into a local Levy.
  • Guwans cannot be citizens, and becoming one strips you of all your legal rights, making anything you do ad hoc with no legal protections

Citizenship

  • Must have lived in the Federation for no less than five years.
  • Must be able to read Nral'Malic as a written language. If they cannot fully comprehend every spoken phrase due to biological limitations, a on-person translator is enough.

  • A very thorough rigorous series of background checks, knowledge tests and personality interviews must be passed with a 90% approval rating or above.
  • It is considered hard for a Skrell to attain this citizenship and even harder for others races.
  • C'thur and Diona have a variant citizenship due to their status. Skrell receive the standard citizenship. IPC's are illegal.
