That was intentional in the first draft of this ruleset. It was for
readability - I didn't like that someone reading through the rules
linearly would start seeing mention of Kurt Godel before know what that

What's to stop the deposed Minister for taking it back immediately?

Statements like "...whose Minister may be called the Meta-Minister" don't
make sense anymore, since there may be multiple such players.

It's surprising how much simpler that makes things.

I very much like this prop.
