Sekidean Parliament

Sekidean Parliament members are voted by a general public elections in every nation at once every 4 years. The parliament is consisting of 500 seats and is distributed by population (note: low-population countries, such as Gadorien get more MEPs per 100,000 people than high-population countries, such as Canton River Delta. This system works the way, that each country gets 20 seats by default (those are subtracted from the 500), and the rest of the 500 seats is distributed proportionally.

  1. The Inner Union uses a modified version of the flag without stars, symbolizing the unity of the Inner Union. This flag is de facto used even by official organs, but has not been recognized as of 2021
  2. Agreed obligatory information sharing and cooperation with the Dokodo Union was suspended after Aenglicia's entry into DU
  3. Observer seats given to all Sekidean countries, with special seats for Sekidean Supereme Court, Dokodo Union and Kasian Union. Outer Sekidean Union Countries get one seat to see the process, but get no vote
  4. Observer seats given to all Sekidean countries. Outer Sekidean Union Countries get one seat to see the process, but get no vote
  5. Many of those theories use them as a show of proof of a incoming New World Order
  6. Written as "x:1", where x is the value of the vote of the said country. That means, that if x=1, the vote from the said country would have average power. If x<1, the vote has a smaller value than average, if x>1, the vote has a bigger value. If x=1.8, average vote from the said country would be worth 1.8 average votes
  7. Prei Meas refused to give autonomous seats to Phau and Minean autonomies, as both of those are too decentralized to have effective representation and due to the clan nature of both autonomies, representation might result in infighting in the regions
