The Garindinan government can be very complicated and confusing at times. Garindina is an absolute monarchy, everything is run by the Crown, but there are three levels of government. These three levels are the monarchy, the central government (comprised of the Federal Council and the Council of Ministers), and the Supreme Court. The House of Ministries contains eight different Ministries and all decisions made by the Crown are enacted upon by the Council of Ministers, as they put the changes into effect. The Federal Council, on the other hand, governs the Oblast and Administrative Districts (ADs) of Garindina, all discussions still have to be approved by the crown. Local Government is appointed by the Federal Council, with no need for approval from the crown. The Supreme Court enforces all laws enacted upon by the Monarchy as well as protects the Garindinan Constitution, also known as the Nationalist Constitution.
The Monarchy of Garindina dates back to the first civilizations of the Gari people. Garindina is run by a hereditary monarchy and its current monarch is Queen Nadia V. The monarchy can be split into two sections, the Old Monarchy and the New Monarchy. This split is defined by the abolishment of the monarchy after the October Coup, currently Garindina is ruled by the new monarchy. The New Monarchy has ruled Garindina since 1998, after the end of the Garindinan Civil War. The first "New Monarch" was king Aleksandr the Great, and he reigned until his death on July 17th, 2015.
The Monarchs are Commander-in-Chief of the Garindinan Armed Forces and hold the authority to declare war and make alliances. Meaning that the entirety of the Garindinan Armed Forces and the Royal Guard are under the command of the Monarch. The Monarchy determines foreign policy and must sign all Acts, Bills and Laws for them to be enacted upon. Monarchs have the power to appoint Oblast and AD governors and the members of the Council of Ministers. The Monarch can also appoint the members of the Supreme Court, giving the Monarch absolute power over the Garindinan legal system. Not only that, but the Monarch also has direct control over the territories of Garindina.
The Central Government of Garindina comprises two counsels, the Federal Council and the Council of Ministers. These two counsels make up the central body of the Garindinan government. These two counsels meet once a year at the Federal Assembly and discuss goals for the year.
The Federal Council governs the Oblast and Administrative Districts of Garindina. The Federal Council is made up of the Governors of Each Oblast and Administrative District, the current Head Councilman/women is Natasha Ivanova. Oblasts have the most autonomy in the Government, meaning they have the most power in the Federal Council. Administrative Districts have less autonomy, meaning they hold less power in the Federal Council.
Oblast were first introduced to Garindina after the Constitution War; this is due to the people of Garindina wanting representation in the government. Originally there were thirteen Oblasts, but after the Civil War, the Doria Oblast has been an independent nation. Each Oblast has its own form of government, all being a Federal Republic with their own State Duma. Despite this, the Oblast have no say in who will be the governor, as the monarch hand-picks all governors.
The same goes for Administrative Districts, they have their own State Council but have no say over who governs them. Administrative Districts are Politically important cities. With the Constitution only stating the six Administrative Districts of Parsa, Jasanasburg, Krasbograd, Novokamensk, Borisobay, and Yuzhemore. These Districts aren't just confined to a single city either, an Administrative District consists of the city in question and some surrounding area, with Novokamensk being the largest District.
Council of Ministers
The Council of Ministers comprises eight different ministries. With each minister being hand-picked by the monarch as well as the Prime Minister, who is in control of the council. Each minister controls their own sector of administration and put all decisions made by the Federal Council and the monarchy into effect depending on the sector. Ministers have the power to make decisions, but these decisions must be approved by the Monarch to be put into effect.
