Statement of Explanation=== I feel strongly for the need of strong base and structure for the model state I have founded. The First Template was not perfect and after a brief period of testing I have cooperated with a few others in order to improve the constitution. This is very similar to the First except for additions made and some changed words in the already existing clauses. This one will not be immediately enacted because the 3rd Template is planned to be put into use to help adapt to increase our efficeincy of our small population.
