Due to its high urban and suburban population, Seneppi is a slightly-liberal leaning but mostly moderate state with some more conservative pockets in rural areas. As a whole, Seneppi is moderate but not right-wing. Polarization of the [center-left] and [center-right] party and the resulting collapse of the state [center-right] party in the 60s led to the rise of the Centrist Independent Party (CIP) in the 60s-90s. As such, state politics are generally dominated by the Centrist Independent Party and [center-left] parties, with the [center-right] party only really being competitive in Gramercy and rural areas. Seneppi is somewhat unique in that the moderate Centrist Independent Party usually has the most influence in state politics, being competitive in both major cities and rural areas due to their non-ideological problem solving focus and balance between providing services like green energy, housing and public transit, and emphasis on business-friendly policies and public-private partnerships.
Most Seneppi political races are more or less two-way races, either between the Centrist Independent Party and the [center-left] Party in major cities like Wallawaukee and Franklinsburgh and their suburbs, or between the [center-right] Party and the Centrist Independent Party in rural areas. The Gramercy area is unique in that its status as a declining manufacturing city tends to make it competitive among all three major parties. Seneppi also frequently sends Centrist Independent Party members and independents to Parliament/Congress. Seneppi also recognizes minor parties such as the [libertarian] party, [socialist] party, and [environmental] party, but to date none have held any major state or statewide offices, though the [libertarian] party has picked up a couple local offices in rural areas.
Seneppi also frequently acts as a swing state in presidential elections, usually going for the more moderate candidate.
Major State Parties
- Seneppi Centrist Independent Party (CIP)- competitive statewide, largest number of seats in legislature, most members
- [center left] Party of Seneppi- competitive in large cities, college towns, and some towns and suburbs
- Seneppi [center right] Party- mainly just competitive in rural areas and Gramercy
Minor State Parties
- [libertarian] Party of Seneppi- sometimes competitive as an alternative to the [center-right] party in rural areas and small towns
- Seneppi [environmental] Party- seen as a one issue party and largely ignored with Centrist Independents and [center-left]s also focusing on environmental issues
- Seneppi Socialism and Democracy Party- generally unpopular and seen as too extreme due to moderate leaning of most of the state
The Seneppi State Legislature is a bicameral legislature with an Upper House (often unofficially known as the "State Senate") and a Lower House. The Upper House is elected based on 3 regions made of smaller legislative districts voting at-large for seven legislators each, adding up to 21 total, while the Lower House is based on 14 legislative districts each electing five legislators, adding up to 70 total. The Upper House allows rural areas to have a bit more power while the Lower House is region by region.

The governor and vice governor run separate campaigns and once elected act in many ways as co-governors. However, only the governor has the power to veto or sign legislation and has final say on decisions made. The vice governor helps advise the governor as his or her right hand man/woman, does many similar duties, and takes over if something happens to the governor. Both are elected via statewide election. Unlike many other states, Seneppi's governor has the power of the line item veto, but line item vetos can be overturned by the legislature by a simple majority, unlike normal vetoes that require a supermajority. Both are elected for 2 year terms, staggered by one year.

Seneppi is home to three major international commercial airports: Wallawaukee Foley-Fillmore International Airport and secondary Wallawaukee Vernon International Airport serving the Wallawaukee metro, and Gramercy Metro International Airport serving Gramercy, Clinton, and surrounding areas. Franklinsburgh Annagawi Captial National Airport also has a small number of commercial flights serving the Franklinsburgh and Annagawi metropolitan area.
Wallawaukee acts as a major ArchRail hub. Franklinsburgh is also a major ArchRail station for several regional ArchRail lines. The State of Seneppi funds several shorter distance ArchRail lines connecting to cities like Gleason, OT and Lake City, MN, and helps pay for the ArchRail Southern Corridor trains east to Stanton, NC.
ConnectSeneppi (Intercity Rail)
ConnectSeneppi, sometimes listed as ConnectSN, is a statewide intercity transit network primarily specializing in intercity commuter rail. Formerly known as the Seneppi Intercity Railroad, the system went through a recent rebranding (partially due to replacing the Alkete line with a bus and adding the Wallawaukee-Miraun-Giiwa Connector). ConnectSeneppi's network is often a lifeline for certain cities like Gramercy that have struggled to maintain jobs, allowing people to commute to other cities for work. Counting the Foley-Fillmore AirportDirect, seven ConnectSN rail lines exist, largely radiating out from Wallawaukee but with some lines having hubs in Personsboro and Franklinsburgh as well.
Local Subways/Light Railways/BRT
Wallawaukee and Gramercy each have their own metro systems. Trenchent and Franklinsburgh have major light rail systems. Personsboro has a street-running bus rapid transit network.
