|Random fact: Laws outlined in bill descriptions but not specified in game mechanic proposals are known as "role-play laws" or "RP laws" and are recognised under the rules as binding. Constitutional RP laws require a 2/3rds majority, just like game mechanic constitutional laws. Non-constitutional RP laws require a simple majority, just like non-constitutional game mechanic laws.|
