Constitution and Laws of the Mughal Emprie
This is the official constitution of the Mughal Empire, created by Babur and his council of laws between 1465 and 1467. Amendments were made once Raja Singh ud-din Muhammad Bahadur rose to the throne in 1495.
All men have the right to choose their religion and all men are allowed to discuss between each other to achieve enlightenment.
As the Emperor is not only a political, but cultural and religious leader, he may favour one religion over the others and push his people to convert, although not violently or against their will.
Men who work on the land of a noble are loyal to them, yet their primary masters are their God(s) and the Emperor.
If it is not war, a man shan't be allowed to kill a fellow man, unless the one being killed has committed a crime himself.
A man who kills another man will be given the option of execution or work in the Emperor's mines. If he chooses to work in the mines, he will only be given food and water to survive.
A man who chooses to work in the mines will lose all his assets unless he has a heir. Then he will only have to pay a larger fine.
Stealing is considered a crime. A man who is accused of crime will be taken before the noble on whose land the crime was committed and through investigation it will be proved if he is guilty or not.
If a man is proven guilty, his left hand will be cut off as punishment and he will have to return or repay the victim.
If a man is proven not guilty, the noble will have to send a message to the Emperor's court in order to help the victim to be refunded
If the criminal is not found, the Emperor's investigators will search the victims lands in order to make sure he has not done it to earn money,
If the victim has tried to cheat the Emperor, he will lose the "stolen" item and pay a fine.
If the criminal is truly not found, the Emperor will refund the victim
All men older than 20 are mandated to join the Mughal army in case of war.
Due to this law, all men of the age 18 will have to pass mandatory military training, regardless of ancestry
Exceptions are men unable to even battle.
A man who rapes a woman has defiled the property of the man whose woman it is.
In case the woman is not married, and she is impregnated by the rapist, her father is allowed to force the rapist to marry her and does not have to give the rapist dowry.
In case the woman is not married and she is not impregnated by the rapist, the man is to be castrated and the woman will not be allowed to get married, as she has been defiled.
She can be a member of a harem or a prostitute, on the other hand.
In case the woman is already married and is impregnated by the rapist, the child born will be brought up by an affluent family chosen by the Emperor or his representative, and the rapist will be castrated.
In case the woman is married and is not impregnated, the rapist will be castrated.
A woman is the property of her father until she is married, after which she is the property of her husband. If her husband dies and she does not re-marry, and she has no male children she will become a 'free woman' allowing her to own property and acquire a career of her own.
A free woman's daughter(s) may also become free women if they do not get married. Although if they do get married, their mother is not obligated to give them dowry.
Attempting to revolt against the Emperor is considered a crime against both man and God. The revolters are offered to plead their full loyalty to the Emperor, if not, they are to be executed along with their families.
Nobles revolting against the Emperor will be stripped of their land and royal title. At least three new families will be given their lands.
All men of the Empire pay tax to the government and those who live on a noble's land pay also to said noble.
All taxes are to be paid the official currency of the Mughal Empire, which is the Draka.
The Emperor can choose his heir amongst his children, so long as he is male and of the Timurid dynasty by blood.
A father may disown some of his children, excluding them from the official Timurid dynasty.
In case that a Emperor does not have any male child, three different situations are to be solved:
In case the Emperor is unmarried, the closest male relative to be found. The relative must have Timurid blood through his father. If none is found, excluded members of the dynasty may also take the position. During the search a council will rule the Empire.
In case the Emperor is married and has no children at all, his wife will serve in his name temporarily until a relative is found. Once a new Empire is crowned, he has the obligation to take care of the previous Emperor's wife, by either marrying her or allowing her to carry on with her life in the court. The second is only valid if the new Emperor already has four wives.
In case the Emperor is married and has one or more female children, the oldest daughter takes the throne temporarily and is helped by a regent if she is a minor. If no male relative is found, the Empress is allowed to marry, but by her choice.
In case the Emperor has an extremely close relative (father, sister, brother, mother, nephew), he or she can be chosen to reign the Mughal Empire as long as it is approved by the Council.
If a man dies, his assets go to his oldest son, who becomes head of the house. If he has no sons, his assets go to his wife, now a 'free woman'. He can also determine who will be his heir by writing an official will. Without it, and without any children or a wife, his assets are taken by the government.
