- Main article: List of ignored constitutions
Because divine hippo law is occasionally a mysterious and enigmatic collection of guttural sounds and biting people on the head, Founding Father Martin also codified the first constitution of the Clan, on the basis of which all trials would be judged. Its famous formulation of all Templars being equal and then detailing how this is not the case was highly influential and repeated in any subsequent self-respecting constitution.
Everything used to be in the constitution, until we lost track of our constitutions somewhere late in the first decade of the 21st century. Because of that, there's literally no framework and everything sort of happens ad hoc.
Common and civil and criminal and whatever lawEdit
Any and all cases which have the slightest chance of people saying "objection!" are lumped here. Famous private lawyering-up corporations such as Ericson & Monkey and Flaming Husky Ltd. specialise in providing adequate law for these lawyery proceedings. They law the shit out of them by law.
While the constitution has been lost, everyone has a general idea what was contained in there. In the tradition of Karl Pearson, the FPH Constitution is now understood not to be directly observable, but its parameters can be inferred from people bitching about it. This works perfectly well.
Administrative law (2)Edit
Meant for adjudication of conflicts regarding Admin CP Access. Suspiciously similar to Classical FPH Law.
This governs secessions mostly. The FPH Clan is a rogue state which respects no international treaty except for those signed with North Korea and Leeds. Also it considers the entire world to be its dominion so what's even the point.
Wartime labour lawEdit
While labourers do not technically have rights in the FPH Isle, this book of law exists anyway to regulate the continuing war between the Confédération Générale du Lief's Quatorze-Millième Post Travail and the Bureau- and Autocrats Treaty Organisation (BATO).
This regulates the yams and wives trade, and as such is the same as commercial law. It was easier this way.
Law on TerrorEdit
Sanctions any and all terrorism by MAFR.
Poultry law is very carefully codified so that we can avoid such gruesome incidents as the great duck thread invasion of 2013.
Every six months, don't copy Soggy's rules.
All of the above subjects in law are involved in inter-ministerial conflicts. Most notably, the Ministry of Wor's propensity to invade all other ministries gets into conflict with the Ministry of Abundant Bureaucracy's tendency to incorporate them into itself or into sub-divisions of different wars. At first, an attempt was made to create inter-ministerial law, but this failed horrendously after all lawmakers were brutally murdered by the Ministry of Wor and their existence formally denied by the Ministry of Abundant Bureaucracy. Henceforth, all inter-ministerial conflicts are handled on the Official Inter-Ministerial Congresses through Trial by Combat.
