Politics & Government

Governance

Arcanstotska is a federal semi-presidential constitutional republic divided into three separate branches of government. Each branch is restricted by an enshrined system of checks and balances which prohibit any governmental office or branch from becoming powerful enough to threaten democratic authority.

  • Legislative: the bicameral National Assembly made up of the Senate (which represents the nation's constituent states) and the Chamber of Representatives (which represents the people directly). The Senate is comprised of 36 seats (two for each constituency) and the Chamber of Representatives is comprised of 543 seats, with one seat equating to 100,000 people. The National Assembly has the responsibility to adopt federal law, declare war, approve of and propose treaties, and power of impeachment over the Prime Minister and President.
  • Executive: the President acts as Head of State and is responsible for representing the nation in matters such as foreign relations, while the matters of governance fall within the responsibilities of the Prime Minister who is accountable to the National Assembly. The Executive Branch also encompasses the National Executive Council, made up of heads of the ??? federal executive departments such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Health & Human Services, the Ministry of the Defense, and the Ministry of the Treasury. It is the responsibility of the National Executive Council to advise the Prime Minister on decisions when they relate to the Councilors' respective departments.
  • Judicial: the National Constitutional Court, the National Supreme Court, and lower federal courts, whose judges are appointed by the National Assembly with Presidential recommendation, have the responsibility of reviewing laws and overturning laws they deem unconstitutional.

The President of the Second Arcanstotskan Republic (referred to as the POTSAR) is elected directly by the people via the popular vote for a maximum of two consecutive five-year terms, after which he/she will no longer be capable of serving any more terms in office. The President acts as head-of-state and is responsible for special national representational duties and calling the National Assembly to order. The President is also responsible for representing Arcanstotska to the international community both at home and abroad.

The Prime Minister of the Second Arcanstotskan Republic (referred to as the PMOTSAR) acts as Arcanstotska's head-of-government. The Prime Minister is selected from among the members of the largest party or coalition of parties every five years following the General Elections. After a candidate for Prime Minister is selected by the leading party, a national poll is established via which the general population may approve or disapprove of the candidate. If the candidate wins a majority of public approval then he/she is sworn in as Prime Minister. If not, then the leading party or coalition must choose another from among themselves as candidate for Prime Minister.

The National Fiscal Council of Arcanstotska is an independent fiscal oversight body tasked by the National Assembly to oversee the state budget process in Arcanstotska and to "create and maintain the discipline, transparency, and long-term sustainability of fiscal policy and to foster the long-term competitiveness of Arcanstotska through fiscal means." If the federal government makes an unbalanced budget or commits to risky spending, the National Fiscal Council can intervene.
