Joining the MAFC
Each planet continues with its own laws and constitution, but must sign up to the Martian Treaty of Association, including the Martian Convention on Human Rights which guarantees Martian citizens certain rights. If a citizen feels they have been badly treaty under their own planet's laws they can appeal over the head of local government to the planetary Martian Association Court, and beyond that to the Regional Association Court, and finally to the Martian Senate (which functions like a supreme court of appeal). MAFC federal laws can be vague but include the right to free expression, free association, the right not to be arbitrarily detained etc.
