A decree may be issued by the Emperor or a Prince once every other month (usually favored towards even numbered months, but this is not a rule, just a suggestion). A decree is a doctrine to instruct various chapters of the Empire or Prefectures goals for the next two months, and suggestions on how to achieve them. These are also non-binding, but failure to adhere to these is an open invatation for a Declaration of War. A decree may include (but is not limited to) the following:
Noting a specific chapter for excellance
Any other suggestions to improve the status of the chapters that fall under the decree.
