The Royal Address:
Mes pairs et mes adjoints, veuillez vous asseoir.
Mon gouvernement, my government, will work to continue to increase economic opportunities for all citizens of Gallorum. My government will begin by adjusting the tax rates across the board, lowering them for middle and lower income earners and eliminate credits for the higher income earners while lowering those tax brackets. This will ensure the public finances are in order, but gives incentives for individuals to find work and excel in their jobs as they will keep more of their earned monies.
My government will continue to look at lowering corporation tax to a flat 12% while eliminating the giveaways and backroom money given to them by the previous government. It is important that as Gallorum looks regionally to expand opportunities for investment and growth that it remains a competitive nation among the tax free Duxburian Union, and the low tax regimes of Inquista and Angleter.
My government will tackle the problems of suicides and mental health plaguing our young people. This will include increased mental health funding for CNAM and increased expansion of research into behavioural sciences. It is our duty as Christians and Gaulois to ensure that our young people have every chance at a life of health and excellence.
My government will continue to fund the armed forces at increasing levels. My government will see that by 2021, armed forces spending will breech 20%. This will bring us in line with our neighbours, allies, and partners in Europe and ensure that the Gaulois military is both an adequate defence force and one that can help in the varying 21st century conflicts that the Kingdom may find itself engaging in in future.
My government will build on relationships started by joining the European Union with several summits with Vayinaod, Icholasen and others. It is important and right that any government would seek to increase its list of friends, allies, trading partners, and others. Gallorum's place is an active one in Europolis and abroad, generating connections that will enrich its populace and be beneficial to all parties.
Education remains my government's main priority. My government will further reform the education system to improve quality and choice in the provision of school, and build on the progress already made to improve educational standards for all.
Legislation will be brought forward to offer greater support for working families by extending maternity benefits and improving the provision of childcare.
Instruments regarding the public finances will be laid before you, as well as other measures.
Mes pairs et mes adjoints, je prie pour que la bénédiction de Dieu tout-puissant repose sur vos conseils.
HRH Margrethe I, Queen of Gallorum and Empress of the Roman Peoples
