In the years following the reformation of the Becht loyalists, it was decided through council that, going forward, the lands of the Becht Empire should be ruled in a more democratic fashion, in order to avoid such deception and trickery as was faced by the fallen ruler. No one person should ever have the full power of the might of the Becht Empire.


The Order of Objective Representation was founded by the heads of the most powerful families and guilds still loyal to the Empire. Though they unanimously agreed that the Blight was their own fault, they also agreed that the fates of the throngs of people under their care should not be decided by the mistakes of their former ruler. They agreed that the Bechtlarite people still deserved a chance at a life and a means to do better in the world they had helped to shape. With the establishment of this institution, a new state of affairs and principals were agreed upon, and together with weeks of heated debates, the members of the Order penned the standing constitution of the Becht Empire, a contract between them and their people that laid out in clear and concise language their promise and guarantee that they would never again pursue dark paths in global politics, and that the nation's focus would remain fixed on growth and innovation, and most importantly, not lose sight of its primary function which was to serve the people and needs of the Empire.   It would take nearly a generation until a sitting Sovereign would be chosen as a figurehead of the Empire, a symbol more than a power, that the people could look to and rally behind, and a sign that the Becht were more than their past mistakes.
