Politics and Government

The federal government of Ajahadya is established in a presidential framework as established in the Constitution of 1937, loosely modelled after Euclean democracies. However, Ajahadya's founding fathers did not believe that a Euclean-style democracy would work in a unified Satria, and several notable differences have led Ajahadya to be considered a southern democracy by many Euclean commentators. Ajahadyan governments have routinely protested this classification, citing its commitment at the federal and state levels to creating a representative 'cooperative multi-party democracy with Satrian characteristics.'

Executive

Executive power at the federal level in Ajahadya is held by the President of the Union, elected by direct popular vote every 8 years, unless a President dies in office in which case an election is held immediately to a new 8-year term. Elections for president are considered to be free and fair by international electoral observers, while the populous nature of Ajahadya prevents the use of political machines to shape electoral results as has been seen in state-level Ajahadyan politics.

The President is independent from the legislative and the judiciary, but has some influence over the legislative through the Premier of the Union, who is appointed and dismissed at will by the President and serves as the Speaker of Parliament and by appointing members of the Satrian Federal Court.

The President has no formal term limits, however it is rare for a President to serve more than a single term in office in the modern era, with the last being Nishant Balchandra who served as President from 1981 to 1997 following the death of Arjuna Kalsarah while in office. Two-term presidents were more common historically, with Mohan Balchandra being elected twice in 1935 and 1943 before his death in 1950, Jalender Sarai serving two full terms from 1950 to 1966 and Aman Sabanis being elected twice in 1966 and 1974 before his death later that year in a Subarnan airstrike on a military convoy he was travelling with. No President has ever been elected three times, although Nishant Balchandra stood as a candidate in the 1997 Ajahadyan presidential election.

Legislative

Ajahadya has a unicameral legislative, formally the Parliament of the Union of Federated Republics of Satria, normally referred to as the Ajahadyan Parliament. The Ajahadyan Parliament elects 500 members through a closed party list system with independent candidates being illegal and only federally-registered parties being able to compete. All parties that succeed in winning seats are constitutionally bound to join the Satrian National Front, the ruling coalition, and many Euclean commentators have stated that this effectively makes Ajahadya a one-party state under the rule of the Satrian National Front.

The extent to which the Satrian National Front is one unified party or little more than a de jure grouping with no actual power varies dramatically between Presidents and Prime Ministers. The ability of the Prime Minister to get legislation passed by the Parliament is often seen as a measure of confidence in the President's ability to rule, and it is rare for an ineffective Prime Minister to last long before they are dismissed by the President.

Judiciary

The judicial branch of the Ajahadyan government is formed by the Satrian Federal Court which serves as the nation's supreme court. Its members are appointed by the President, and it functions as the main court for matters of constitutional and civil law.
