Some more brainstorming,
The separation of powers as an advice yes, but as a condition, no.

If problems occur in the future, we'll discuss it in a pirate way (direct
dialogue). Besides, what works for one not necessairely works for another.
(Next to the existing laws in each nation)

to give an example of no separation of powers, about launching nucleair
missiles, are you saying it would be a good idea for each and all in a
country to have an immediate launching code ? ;-)

Keep on dreaming.
