Legislation Design Authority

If form is meant to follow function, it is perplexing to the Nilkawtians that most societies provide far too many forms for citizens to fill to fulfil anyone's basic needs.  Forms in Nilkawt are always for the function of enlightenment, as are all forms of form.

In most societies, legislation is usually cobbled together by persons ill equipped to understand the basic principles of good design.  In Nilkawt, whenever there is confusion regarding the design of legislation, there is a constitutional crisis.  In fact, there was such a crisis quite recently.

Dealing with any sort of crisis is primarily the responsibility of the Nilkawtian Political Reform Commission, at least whenever a future crisis occurs in Nilkawt itself.  There was no such commission in Nilkawt until quite recently.

It is a constitutional duty of all Nilkawtians to provide themselves with a beautiful political system.  They have, of course, always done so, including quite recently.

The legislation for the development of a Legislation Design Authority was established quite recently under the supervision of the Nilkawtian Minister for Peace and Justice, who was herself appointed quite recently.

The world had never known about the uncommon law of Nilkawt, until quite recently.

The Legislation Design Authority is responsibility for ensuring no political and judicial crises occur in Nilkawt in the present or future.  The design aspects of both legislation and authority are to be considered by the Authority.

No-one has yet been appointed to the Legislation Design Authority.

Twaklinton Academy of Science, Technology and Engineering

As with any beautiful, historically significant city, there is little accommodation available for ordinary citizens in the magnificent centre of Twaklinton and even in the graceful inner suburbs.  Sophisticated holiday apartments, quaintly charming holiday cottages and luxurious hotels feature prominently. 

There are buildings owned by exclusive, private clubs and prestigious professional associations, with temporary accommodation facilities for their members and guests.  There are quaint colleges with residential hostels for short-term students.  There are historic inns for legal professionals.

In addition, there is the royal palace, Palazzo Twaklinilkawt, with its private suites and holiday pavilions.  There are the royal hospitals with their highly awarded wards.  There is the Royal School of Hospitality and Interior Decoration with its experimental guest houses.  There are also, quite obviously, the architecturally-designed villas of the rich.

Then there is the Twaklinton Academy of Science, Technology and Engineering.  It has variable dwellings for its members to rent.  The most senior members have access to mathematical mansions, in accordance with their special knowledge.  Relatively junior members are provided with geometrically elegant, terraced townhouses on a space-time continuum of quality.

Experts in the life sciences additionally have access to the Investigative Gardens.

Researchers in the physical sciences additionally have access to the Grand Halls of Gadgetry.

Investigators in the social sciences additionally have access to the Mathematical Assembly Rooms.

Everyone in the academy, or TASTE as it is usually known, has access to the academy's own kitchens, libraries and dining establishments.  Only the most distinguished members have access to the academy's official archives.

Most visitors to Nilkawt, whether as tourists or students, or on business, wish to participate in the tours and other public activities of TASTE.  Visitors not wishing to participate in any of the activities of TASTE are usually treated with suspicion.  Well-reasoned curiosity and good taste are absolute priorities in Nilkawtian society.

Diplomatic Gifts

The giving and receiving of gifts is often an embarrassing experience.  This particularly applies in the field of diplomacy.  In fact, the field of diplomacy often has much in common with a battlefield behind the scenes.

If you are eager to provide a diplomatic gift to Nilkawt, there is a strict protocol in place concerning donations, gifts and bequests.

Initially, you will be required to provide:

1.  A full description of the item you wish to supply, the reasons for doing so, and the additional sum you will provide to cover the ongoing costs for the display, protection and preservation of the item.

2.  A full description of the proposed gift your country wishes to receive in return from Nilkawt and why your government or head of state wishes to acquire that item.

3. Your digital diplomacy credentials.

Please note that the Nilkawtian head of state has no desire to acquire material gifts of a personal nature.  Her Illustrious Highness therefore does not accept items for her personal use though she is occasionally willing to auction valuable items for philanthropic purposes.
