The Dual Throne
The Republic of Ana Sepiya is, to the outsider, an impossibly complex nightmare of bureaucracy and elected officials.
The government is structured as such:
|Citizen-Landowners||casts votes to fill government seats|
|Electoral Council||1000 individuals who compile votes, seats filled by lottery; serves a 3 month term|
|Congress Majoris||300 individuals who decide the day-to-day transfer of gold, responsible for budget-setting and subsequent presentation to the Dominion; serves a 6 month term|
|Congress Minoris||20 individuals who assist the Magnate as a panel of advisers, may veto policy set by Magnate; serves a 6 month term|
|Magnate||Head of the Congress Minoris, responsible for foreign diplomacy and directing employed armed forces during wartime; serves a 6 month term|
Corruption is minimized the ruling class are far too numerous to simply buy off and the seats do not serve long enough to abuse their authority in any significant way.
