Earlier we proposed the establishment of the Mordan Domestic Investment Fund. That fund is intended to stimulate domestic economic development. However, the Mordan Foreign Investment Corporation or MFIC, will focus on investments abroad by investing the Nation’s foreign exchange reserves*.

As explained earlier, the name Mordan is derived from a book by Dutch SF author Tais Teng. However, a proper etymology for this name is still lacking. Though I have proposed that “Mordan” might refer to the island of Saint-Martin, I have yet figured out a better and more satisfying etymology. Continue reading Mardonius
Earlier we developed the theory of public property as a special case of co-ownership. Property includes the rights of usus, fructus and abusus. This piece will discuss the nature of the everyman’s right or the freedom to roam within the theory of land as common property. Continue reading Everyman’s right
In this document we outline the principles of public policy. These principles are:

- permanent education

Here we will give a short overview of Mordan Property Law. Since this is still a proposal, we restricts this discussion the essential features of Mordan Property Law. We will cover three topics: immovable property, movable property and animals.
All land is the inalienable property of the people. Though the government will be responsible to manage this on behalf of the people, it will be incorrect to refer to land as “state” or “government property”.
Individuals can hold land in a private capacity through lease (using the legal figures of emphyteusis and superfices). Subsequent leaseholds can be sold or mortgaged by their lessees.
With the exception of animals (see below) the law on movable property will not differ much from most terrestrial legal sytems. Full ownership of both personal and capital goods will possible and expropriation is not allowed without due cause and adequate compensation.
Under Mordan law animals cannot be owned by humans, as they are not things but sentient beings. Nevertheless people can keep, under certain limitations, animals. However, this relation will be a type of guardianship rather than ownership.
Since animals are not property, they cannot be sized for the settlement of debts. The forfeiture of animals is only possible for the sake of animal welfare or public health.
Secondary penalties are penalties which can be imposed in addition to a principal punishment (such as fines, penal labour or transportation) but not as a “stand alone” punishment. Continue reading Secondary penalties

Apparently the British did elect the robin as their national bird. Many countries have a “national bird”, but the UK did not have – until recently. Continue reading Mordan’s national bird…
State-owned enterprises are a central feature of state capitalism. Though there are many reasons why the state would own certain businesses, in a state capitalist society the prime function of a SOE is to generate revenue for the government. Continue reading The Mordan Domestic Investment Fund
