House of Aristocrats creates Luso-Germanic Cultural Commission.
Entity resulting from cooperation between the upper chamber of parliament and the Ministry of Education and Culture will manage the country's cultural context.
On 14 November 2021, after three weeks of mostly informal debates that even included the King, the House of Aristocrats created the so-called "Royal Commission for the Maintenance and Improvement of the Luso-Germanic Culture of Ebenthal", commonly called the Cultural Commission. The commission is composed of three members of the House of Aristocrats (one from each party represented in the upper house), the Minister of Education and Culture, the Minister of the Kingdom (minister of the interior), the King and two other members to be appointed, and will function autonomously under the joint administration of the House of Aristocrats and the Ministry of Education and Culture (the latter also responsible for overseeing the commission's cultural program). The purpose of the Cultural Commission is to manage the Luso-Germanic (also called Portuguese-German) cultural panorama which are the foundations of the Kingdom of Ebenthal. More clearly, they will be responsible for approving necessary changes, mainly aesthetic, on the micronation, and for deciding which cultural elements should be kept and what does not fit the Portuguese-Germanic national culture, which should be promptly deleted or changed. All changes and creations, to be carried out, must comply with the fundamental rules imposed by the Ministry of Education and Culture and must be approved by a minimum of 3/4 of the commission members (ie 6 out of 8 people), to then be presented to the House of Councillors for parliamentary vote, where a minimal majority can approve or reject the motions. As first steps, the Cultural Commission asked His Majesty The King to convene a special parliamentary session next Friday, November 19, to vote on a change in the recognition of the country's official languages; Ebenthal, which has German recognized as a minority language [with co-official status in New Switzerland], will adopt its intrinsically national Brazilian variant, the Hunsrik (also called Riograndenser Hunsrückisch), as its official language - they intend. Another change they want to discuss at first hand is changing the names of the principalities of Aldiva, Alvorada and Carlenburg, as well as the municipalities of Abyssi and Icarus. Other measures should be developed and proposed over the next few months.
