Orde van Oranje Nassau (civil contributions)

outlandish grande performance whose actions helped result into a babyboom, or any other similar essential and unique contribution which secured the longevity of the country for the future.
extraordinary contribution to the community of the Netherlands (e.g. half year being an forum-admin, programming API´s or another significant contribution that intensified the countries community)
outstanding contribution to the media-landscape* or community of the Netherlands (*congress, government and political party and such media contributions are excluded for this medal)

Admission procedure
The Country president or Prime Minister must authorize giving out every medal (except for the Willemsorde, which can also be handed out by the Minister of Defense). Every medal has got a precise set of demands which must be checked with the applicants claims. The Country President or Prime-Minister may ask people to assist him with this task.
Drastic changes to medals plans (new degrees or new medals, not the number for a degree) must be authorized by the government, however congress nor the government don´t have any influence on the execution of the medals-programme in general or specific cases, nor can they opt to change the medals-plan without the consent of the Country President ánd Prime Minister.
CP, PM and MoD cannot give themselves a 'Oranje-Nassau' medal
Medals can only be handed out to people with Dutch citizenship who are registered to the forum.
People can apply for themselves or others for a specific medal on this application-form.
All newly given medals will be published on the erepublik wiki and the Country President Newspaper once every month or so. After that forum-admins can add awarded medals under avatars.

When given, medals cannot be taken back. However in the case of official misconduct. The Country President can decide to postpone giving out a higher degree of a medal to a given person for up to 6 months. The congress has the power to overrule the CP´s judgement of misconduct in the previous case. Only in severe cases of misconduct such as high-treason to our country, medals could be withdrawn or degraded from a person; however this can only be proposed by the CP or PM and needs to be validated by an vote in congress which equals or exceeds in a 75% acceptance of the proposal.

Campaign medals
Incidentally also other medals can be made for special commemorative (military) occasions (important battles, wars or campaigns, etc.). The Country President i.c.w. the Minister of Defense can issue these medals.
