On February 18, as per the Hanoverian constitution, the Hanoverian census began. His Majesty the King of Hanover had agreed, in consultation with the Hanoverian citizenry, on a three-phase census process:
"PHASE I: FEB-18 to FEB-21
Forums based contact. The government will post a census thread and citizens are urged to state their continued citizenship and their residency.
PHASE II: FEB-21 to FEB-24
Email based contact. The government will send email to all who have not responded in phase I a census form and citizens are urged to state their continued citizenship and their residency.
PHASE III: FEB-24 to MAR-24
Postal based contact. The crown will send postal mail, on an as possible basis, to all who have not responded in phase I and phase II efforts a census form and citizens are urged to state their continued citizenship and their residency."
Phase I immediately began on the 18th, and many citizens had replied before the end of the day. Carson Smith also replied on the forums a bit late because as a new citizen, he had held a contest between Hanover's three dominions (Athenoi, Calormen, and Emden) to determine where he would reside, and this did not end until the 21st. Kieran Bennett also replied on the forums soon after returning from a brief absence due to his return to macronational schooling.
His Majesty proceeded to e-mail citizens who had not yet replied, but it appears that he has not had much luck with this. As of February 23rd, the following citizens, contacted by e-mail, had still not replied:
Dennis von Arabien
If you are one of the above people and wish to remain a Hanoverian citizen, please either fill out the form sent to you by His Majesty via e-mail or go to the Citizens Retreat forum in Hanover and reply in the relevant thread there.
Postal mail notification commenced to most outstanding citizens this past Thursday.
