Federal Consensus Democracy

Overarching governance system within the cluster to counter externalities. It resembles ship-based federalism with high autonomy for each ship, which designates one permanently recallable representative. This representative votes on cluster-wide matters in periodical intervals. Decisions are made unanimously which requires bargaining between the representatives from the ships. The resulting policy resembles a civil law system.

Proponents: The Seasteading Institute
