One time, in a faraway land, there were lots of gingerbread people who had just overthrown the Evil Cotton Candy king!

 

They were very excited they were free from the Cotton Candy rule, but they all agreed they never wanted to be ruled by a king again.

So a group of Ginger-Men wrote a piece of paper called the Articles.

At first, everything was good. All the ginger people were happy with the new laws. But things started slowly getting worse.

Since the government couldn’t take money from the people, they started to print their own money. This was not good because then things started to get really expensive.

 

It was also bad because then the Gingerbread salespeople’s things were too expensive so this caused the citizens to buy their things from the Cotton Candy people.

Then everyone started to get angry and fight with each other, so some important ginger-people decided that they needed a new set of laws.

These laws, were going to fix everything wrong with the articles. They wanted to make GingerLand great again. So they wrote the Constitution.

The House of representatives are reflected by how many people live in each state and the Senate has two representatives from each state. Their branch makes all the laws.

The Legislative Branch is also known as Congress and have two different sections. House of Representatives and the Senate.

Executive Branch carries out the laws. It also has two different parts, The President and the Cabinet.

The Ginger People Vote for a President and then the President chooses 16 people to be in the Cabinet. He has help from the senate with picking people.

The President Picks nine judges to evaluate and change laws if they need to.

The Judicial Branch consists of the Supreme Court and other federal courts.

 

The Ginger People were very happy with the Constitution. They finally found something that benefited all of them! They were a free country at last.
