Subdivisions

The Federal States, on the highest level, is divided into numerous states and overseas territories, and one capital district. Each subdivision holds administrative jurisdiction over a pre-defined territory, and the federal government devolves certain responsibilities to the governments of the subdivisions. Every state is further divided into counties, districts, regions, and municipalities.

Each state and the capital district sends a set number of representatives to the Congress of the Federal States, based on population. Overseas territories such as Arecales do not have voting representatives in the Senate, but can send observer delegates to the General Assembly.

The administration and status Native Archantan lands varies from state to state, but are not recognised by the federal government as equal subdivisions to states.

Government and Politics

The Federal States Government is divided into three branches - Legislative, Executive, and Judicial - each independent and serving a different purpose. Furthermore, the government's responsibilities are divided into three levels: federal, state, and local. Each of the levels has their own Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches.

The influencing of one branch of government on another is prohibited by the Constitution, to preserve the checks and balances it establishes.

The actions each part of the government is permitted to make is governed by the Constitution of the Federal States. It has been amended several times, to accommodate various social, political, and economic changes in the world and the FSA. The Constitution distributes the responsibilities of governance to each branch and level of government.

The Federal States is an indirect democracy, meaning delegates are elected into government offices to vote on bills that become law, instead of holding public referenda. Each Federal State is divided into a number of electoral districts, divided by population, that elects members of Congress, and the President. The President has the power to appoint judges to the High Court of the Federal States (subject to review by Congress), and Congress has the power to remove judges who are deemed unfit for service in the High Court.

The bodies making up each branch of the Federal States federal government are:

  • Legislative: The bicameral Congress of the Federal States, comprised of the General Assembly and Senate, creates bills that become Federal Laws and amends or removes Federal Laws that already exist.
  • Executive: The President is the Head of State, as well as Commander-in-Chief of the Federal States Military. The President executes and enforces Federal Laws, and to that end appoints their cabinet, as well as the heads of various government agencies. On lower levels of government, this branch is fulfilled by State Governors, their cabinets, and agencies. Policing forces on all levels of government also fall under the Executive Branch.
  • Judicial: The High Court has the highest judicial jurisdiction of the Federal States, and it determines the practical interpretation of Federal Law. The High Court also has the power to determine the constitutionality, and thus the legality, of certain Federal Laws. On lower levels of government, the states have their own highest courts, who may interpret State Law similarly.

The General Assembly is elected by popular vote, and each state is delegated a number of seats in the Assembly according to population. The Senate is also elected by popular vote, and each state is delegated [number] of seats, regardless of population.

The Federal States has an established system of foreign relations. It hosts numerous embassies of nations around the world in Huntington, C.P., and maintains embassies in many countries around the world. Several countries have additional consulates elsewhere throughout the Federal States.
