Through the present decree, We establish a Regency in Our Name, to lead the Empire during Our Absence.
The Regency will last between 29 December 2017 from noon until 05 January 2017 at noon.
Will compose the Council of Regency, according to its attributions and only in case of necessity and with the authorization of the President of the Council of Regency and consent of at least two more members of the Council of Regency:
a. His Royal Majesty, King Christian of Carpathia, responsible for the imperial territories located in North America.
b. His Royal Highness, Duke Guilherme of Libertia, responsible for the imperial territories located in Europe.
c. His Serene Highness, Prince Wilhelm von und zu Hochbach, responsible for the imperial territories located in South America.

The Regency can be dissolved at any time, before or after the determined period, through Imperial Decree.
